havent written seriously in a few months though. was fucking around with a draft and the research for it but corona lockdown is fucking with me. i just do nothing all day, and i look up and it's bedtime. i feel like utter shit.

when i have a particularly bad day i picture characters from my (completed) novels and feel better. they are my friends. no, not published. i can never have anything, no matter how humble or meager. such is life.

this is why i dont hang out with writers even though i like writing. most self described writers are insufferable narcissists, and the less talented they are the more narcissistic and prolific their writing becomes. i stg over half the people ive met in writing workshops are like "You can call me Ebony Alastair Elvira, here is an excerpt from my 4000 page magnum opus titled 'dragons in the storm of shadows'. yes half of it is written in my imaginary language and yes the main character looks exactly like me". nigga shut the fuck up this is why writing is a dead art in 2020

Hi my name is Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way and I have long ebony black hair (that's how I got my name) with purple streaks and red tips that reaches my mid-back and icy blue eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me I look like Amy Lee (AN: if u don't know who she is get da hell out of here!). I'm not related to Gerard Way but I wish I was because he's a major fucking hottie. I'm a vampire but my teeth are straight and white. I have pale white skin. I'm also a witch, and I go to a magic school called Hogwarts in England where I'm in the seventh year (I'm seventeen). I'm a goth (in case you couldn't tell) and I wear mostly black. I love Hot Topic and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a black corset with matching lace around it and a black leather miniskirt, pink fishnets and black combat boots. I was wearing black lipstick, white foundation, black eyeliner and red eye shadow. I was walking outside Hogwarts. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A lot of preps stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.

"Hey Ebony!" shouted a voice. I looked up. It was… Draco Malfoy!

"What's up Draco?" I asked.

"Nothing." he said shyly.

But then, I heard my friends call me and I had to go away.


Are gossip girl and pretty little liars good shows? Anonymous 6285[Reply]

I want to become more of a normie girl since I'm going to uni and watching nothing but anime has rotted my braincells

>I dont think I've ever met another girl who would talk to me about yugioh
When Tumblr, fanfiction.net, etcetera were more populated, it at times felt like women were the primary consumers of yugioh media. I remember so many girls had husbandos and ships they clung to. It was quite fun, some were also into the dueling aspect. Growing up, I had my sister to talk about this too, and we shared a friend in elementary to middle school who also liked yugioh (and was a girl).

The point is, plenty of girls like, but it may be true it's more often for the characters and stories, not the dueling itself.

In regards to your question, I watched almost all of Gossip Girl to consume more normie media and while there were some enjoyable aspects of it, the episodes are so fucking long, the seasons are so fucking long, and I don't think it was worth it. Basically everyone fucks each other in this friend group, people become enemies, then friends, then enemies, etcetera and it's dramatic in a repetitive way where it feels like the character development of all these characters is quite limited despite all these situations that occur to them.

Anonymous 6293

I just dropped Gossip Girl. I picked it up because Penn Badgley was in it and stayed for the outfits, but the drama was petty and boring. The malebaiting 3some in S3 was the final straw. This show will not make you normie, it will just make you feel like your time isn't valuable if you choose to spend it watching trash shows.

>The only way is to either get to reading books on psychology and the human condition
Terrible advice.

I'd say not to force yourself to consume media just because it's popular. Watch what you like and I guarantee there are other women who like it too.

Go watch Sevens instead of cosplaying normie. Yuri would be ashamed of your shitty new goals and beta personality anon. Bitch here married with SO because of yugioh, so embrace your weebness instead, you will get cool snowflake points.

And replying to your question, no normie watches those old-ass shows anymore. Pretty Little Liars is too old. If you want to blend with them, open Netflix or any streaming service, and go watch whatever is featured on the first page.

Why people grow out hobbies like games, anime, metal, etc after a certain age? Anonymous 5408[Reply]

Silly question out of curiosity, and no, I don't care about what others think neither I intend to stop liking what I like just because society thinks I should.

I was just wondering a few days ago. I'm 29 years old, older than most miners I believe and I still like the very same things I used to when I was a teen. None of my highschool friends, who liked the very same things as me, like it anymore. I don't think it has anything to do with time as I probably work harder than most of them and hang out just as much (even though that's not that much when compared to the average person). Also now they're into other media (mostly western Netflix TV shows) that require lots of time too.

So, I was just wondering. Are anime, games, metal and things like this actually made for kids? Why do people stop liking them after/during college. About metal I can understand, most of your angst is gone, but the others still might be fun. Do you think it might have something to do with how society sees people with the so called "manchild" hobbies?

I am exactly the same. I used to play so much video games as a kid, from dawn to dusk almost every day and I did not even regret it. But as I started growing up, I realized that I do not like games anymore, and the only games that I used to enjoy were glorified chat-rooms with silly gameplay, stuff like minecraft or maybe tf2 where you did not take things seriously and just fooled around, so I mostly stopped playing vidya and moved onto other stuff. I still play vidya occasionally, but really that only means I play one or two matches of league of legends every other day and that's it. It is almost July and I only played 2 other games this year, which were Furi (played through it all in 2 days) and a re-play of Danganronpa 2 cause I love that game. I then started watching movies but honestly, it got to a point where the more I watched the less satisfied I was. I remember watching Adaptation and thinking "this is amazing, I will never find anything better than this", so I mostly stopped watching movies. I still do sometimes, I watched Punch Drunk Love recently which was almost as good but it has lost its charm for me. Honestly, internet just feels like such a hollow place for me. I really wanted to get into longboard dancing is just way too expensive. Same with anime, what's even the point of watching new stuff when nothing will come even close to Code Geass or Liar's game? Only thing I really do nowadays is listen to music, but that is not really a hobby :/

Anonymous 6367


IME its not so much growing out of your hobbies so much as just getting more selective since learning what you like. I used to think I stopped enjoying anime and games but after putting in the effort to find new things that are actually good I realized I just got picky. I've watched less than 5 currently airing shows in the past 2 years but the ones I did watch were great. I've barely played more than 10 new games in the past couple years but again the ones I got into I ended up playing for a long long time. Currently I am playing Valorant and watching Gleipnir. And I've been on an old 80s/90's anime kick watching some really awesome stuff I'd never heard of till recently. Also just started some manga after never actually reading them before now. Nickelodeon is a crazy series that is like the short stories of Murakami in manga form. And start reading. There are so many great authors that aren't read enough. Renata Adler, Hiromi Kawakami and Clarice Lispector to name a few.

It's normal to stop liking most of the trash in any medium of art you devote yourself to, there sure is a lot of it, but that just means you need to be more proactive about finding the stuff you will actually enjoy. It's often overlooked.

Anonymous 6368


I also loved Liar Game. It was a unique and well made manga. I think that the world is just full of useless shit, and you only learn it when you get older. Good content is just rare everywhere always. It's not that we get picky or pretentious as we get older. We just learn our time's worth. You shouldn't fall into despair, though. Every once in a while there will be something good coming out. An interesting game, a good movie, a unique anime. Rare doesn't mean nonexistent.
>I used to enjoy were glorified chat-rooms with silly gameplay,
I did the same as a child. I still love Minecraft and think it's one of the best games that a child can have, because it's very creative and moddable. I learned Blender because I got tired of using worldedit in Minecraft.

Just don't get depressed and say a better thing will never come out. That's just impossible.

I have just become sort of disillusioned I guess. I just think back to when I was 14 and just chatting away with people in tf2 and not even playing the game while listening to amazing obscure songs like Ride the lightning or Bohemian Rhapsody. Whenever I try to do something like that nowadays I just have this feeling of wasting time even if I have literally nothing else to do. I have sort of been getting into cooking recently and while I have a lot of fun with it it is not something you can do to pass time or kill boredom and such, you know. It amazes me that some girls just become interested in something like horses at a young age and then 10 years later they still ride and take care of horses daily. Like, I wish that I had found a hobby like that, you know. Something that is actually productive and you can spend a lot of time doing it. And also there are a lot of things I would like to get into but I know it would be pointless, like drawing (terrible at it ) or learning to play an instrument (I have terrible eye and hand coordination). Like, it is all just so bleak, you know. What's even the point? Nothing is fun anymore and the older I get, the more sceptical I am that anything fun even exists.

For me personally, I don't think I will ever forget anime. Like many other posters here, some anime has had an enormous impact on my life and I'm really grateful for that, especially the amazing OSTS they have. Some of my personal favourites include my all-time beloved Evangelion (which has helped me so many times), HxH, Natsume Yuujinchou. Game favourites include Danganronpa and Fate Extra. To me, my favs represent an everlasting optimism and hope for the future :)

Anyway, I'm going on 20 very soon and these are my personal reasons for drifting away:

1) Anime, like other genres, lose their fun after repeated exposure. Repeating what others said, same plotlines etc. Watching Soul Eater when I was 12 was just amazing, now it's just nostalgic. One good thing to do is be more SELECTIVE of what you watch: I watch about 5 anime/year, recently I watched Beastars, Death Note and Beautiful Bones: Sakurako's Investigation and it was really, really enjoyable to me. It felt extremely refreshing and just kept me excited to watch the next episode.

2) IMO my biggest reason: The anime / gaming community is pretty bad. Sure, bad apples exist in every fandom but this aspect is one that continuously encourages deviant behaviours: l*licons, pedos, weird porn addictions, and the community is geared towards a younger audience so it's a double edged sword: on one hand, I truly enjoy how idealistic and positive some anime fans can be (it makes me smile when I see younger kiddos dedicate their time drawing anime), on the other hand it's those negative fans that plague the community.

OH, and the MISOGYNY. There are SO many misogynists in the anime community, it's sickening. As someone who strives to actively improve myself in my early 20's and set that healthy foundation, this community ain't it.

4) Dating Prospects(? or an extension of point 2 of how repulsive the community is) - Most guys into anime have warped perspectives on the world. (Strangely enough, I have over 15 female friends who like anime and they're mostly wholesome) I do have guy friends who like anime and are decent but they are few and far between. Most buy into the hyper-sexualised culture, aren't in shape, and are far away from reality as possible. I actually met a cute guy who liked anime in college, who unsurprisingly browsed 4*han, was an edgy alt-right supporterPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Videogames or PC?
I own an old android phone and I plan on upgrading it soon (right now I'm looking for either the moto g6 or the samsung a8) I just don't like apple phones since I think they're too expensive and get stale quicker than most phones I had.

Catfishing Anonymous 121[Reply]

Have you ever catfished anyone, sisters?
How far did you take it?
Do you regret what you did?
How did it end? Did the person ever find out?
Did you do it for attention? Trolling? Money? Something else?

Nowadays it's gotten hard to uphold a fake identity because everyone is expected to carry an internet-connected camera at all times. How do you keep going?

>Have you ever catfished anyone, sisters?
Yes lol It's 1 am here, time to expose my past. This is gonna be a long ass post.
>How far did you take it?
Well the first time I cat-fished someone was with my sister on a ps3 game called Little Big Planet, after meeting two boys on there me and my sister thought it would be a good idea to have online boyfriends, we both got pictures of these Emo or Scene girls off the internet and said we were twins using their pictures. We also lied about our ages on there as well saying we were 16, like the boys we were Cat-fishing, when at the time we were probably around 11 or 12. It didn't last that long for me but my sister ended up talking to them for way longer and getting into some trouble involving them.

I would also Catfish guys on PS Home back when that was still a thing, one funny thing that happened was I had two boyfriends on there at the same time and told them both I was different ages, eventually they met each other in the game and was like "what the hell…" I just responded by turning off the game and pretending like it never happened.

This is the most recent one but still a couple years old, so I was probably around 15 or 16 at the time, I had an online boyfriend who I was actually attached to even after we broke up for whatever reason, anyways, we were in the same group chat still and I wanted to make it seem like I was completely over things by introducing my "totally not boyfriend but flirts with me publicly and knows all the things I like best friend" who was actually just me typing to myself in the chat on a fake account I made, to make it seem like I had a boy interested in me. The ex ended up leaving the group eventually, a few weeks later "best friend" ended up leaving too when I didn't feel like typing on two accounts anymore. I still talk to the people in there and they won't ever know why "my best friend" left.
>Do you regret what you did?
Not really, I was a little kid for the first two and the second one I just think is really cringy lol
>How did it end? Did the person ever find out?
We'll not sure tbh, I guess the Ps Home guys probably talked to each other about me when I left, either way it doesn't matter.
>Did you do it for attention?

I catfished one of my bestfriends when I was like 12. She was in an really lonely phase so I created the perfect boyfriend for her and chatted with her online for like a month. But I stopped, because well they can't meet up. So I pretented he had a girlfriend and therefore no time.
So in the end I was only making her more sad. :( I really hated myself for that and was really worried that she will find out, because "that guy" had the same spelling mistakes as me obviously.

She didn't find out and we are still good friends. It happened like 6 years ago.

Anonymous 6312

>Have you ever catfished anyone, sisters?
Plenty of times when I was in my teens.
>How far did you take it?
I would stalk the girls I use as bait's friends and family members on Instagram and Facebook to find more "convincing" pictures of them. I would also lie about meeting up with most of the men.
>Do you regret what you did?
>How did it end? Did the person ever find out?
I quit because I got bored and as I got older, I started getting more annoyed with replying to messages. None of them ever found out, but some were a little suspicious at first. I just blocked the ones who were really paranoid about me being a catfish.
>Did you do it for attention?
>Trolling? Money? Something else?
Mainly for attention. I have my boyfriend now so I'm good. If we ever broke up I don't think I would catfish ever again just because it doesn't sound appealing like it used to. And I learned I don't need attention from others to be happy. There were several times I got money, but only because my old friend needed help with paying a vet bill.
