Just got news about my house. It's fine, apparently -- no power, though, so I shudder to think about the contents of the fridge. Sep 12, 2017

      Hi, sorry to bother you, but i recently found a few of your quests, and took an interest in them, specifically your DxD quest. I thought I’d post to let you know that I enjoyed your work, and am avidly waiting for your return. I would have posted there, but I’d rather not be accused of necroing.

      Happy writing, and update soon!

        Thanks, Wanderer. I assume you mean PGO by that? Yeah, that was my favorite of them.

        Unfortunately, RL isn't making writing easy these days. Among other things, I'm dealing with medical crap that makes it almost impossible for me to get a full night's sleep... with all that entails. Severe, prolonged sleep deprivation is *not fun*.

      Congrats on your birthday Aleh!

      Any plans to get back to any of your quests? Was enjoying the rather reasonable reactions of everyone in the DxD quest.

        Not overall, that I know -- I just did a quick search. He was explicitly paranormal in view, and dealt with things like ESP, so a lot of his stuff is facially unscientific. A lot of specific things get takedowns here or there, but...

        Assuming you mean Jungian psychology... it's a bit more than a "contribution".

        As long as no one opens it it'll probably be fine for a couple of days. Assuming the seal isn't broken that is. Fridges mostly maintain their temperature by not letting any cold air escape.

        The mold in your fridge has grown so well it's become a new ecosystem. Great to hear about your house, though.

        We're talking about at least a week without human attention, and probably a similar amount without power. Hence the fridge remark.

      Huh. I didn't really expect that from you. People are full of surprises, it seems; I'd pegged you as being in the "let the truth be told, though the heavens fall" camp.

        Oh, the argument wasn't particularly minor, but I judged the probability of my actions leading to a repeat of that vitriol minor. It's not like I came in flinging insults, or replied directly to the "I hope you get cancer" posts.

        And in all seriousness, in the modern world the majority of people know someone who's depressed; the possibility of positive effects from that little PSA in an RL situation somewhere down the line probably actually outweighs the possibility of an argument on the Internet that would probably be forgotten by everyone involved inside a week.

        To reboot computer please hold the power button down for three seconds before depressing. We advise you to is use the restart or continue button instead.

        A paradigm is a way of viewing the world or an issue. In this case, that means "schools" of psychology -- behaviorism, Freudian bullshit, neo-Freudian bullshit, cognitive psychology, biological psychology... etc.

      Having read the posts in which you talk about your job, and certrain people you have to deal with, i want to say i admire your mental fortitude a lot. Were i in your place, i'd have gone on a Rorschach-style killing spree in less than a week.

        If you mean the first post, sure. I offered too many options. It's also not a case of "the right way". Narrative doesn't work like that -- there's not a "best" solution. There are simply choices and consequences.

        Well, hopefully this will teach people to carefully consider things when doing write ins. On that note, would my write in of pointing out that it would have encouraged some people have worked out a bit? I doubt that it will be an option after what is going to happen with Total's dumb write in.

        Total's write-in is somewhat less dumb than you might think, although one of the items kinda shows incomprehension of Erwen's position.
