Anything Goes! (OOC Comments)
« on: January 08, 2012, 08:04:51 PM »
Okay, the fact that I have placed OOC in the title to this post gives me the right to ignore parenthetical rules and ideals.  

Yes Raye mun I will do anything to break the rules.  To those who choose to make this your place to post.

WELCOME

There are some things that should be understood.  Yes, there will be the occasional post which necessitates the need for the mature content warning.  The NSFW can serve as a warning as well since that has been stipulated in the DM forums for more years than I am going to make any of relive.

Next, most things are open for me however with the exception of the Kruger's Exotic thread, I would like a heads up, and to be able to get back to you with an answer before something appears in a thread.  Not because I am an egotisitcal maniac....I am but that is not the reason...rather it is to ensure that the end result that I am looking for won't be changed.  I will give the same respect to you and yours.  

In recent weeks I have come across numerous threads that I have wanted to join.  I have a tendency to want to drive the story line, and have on occasion had to stop myself from going too fast.  No promises that this won't happen to you.  The forum rules apply here, and as moderator I assume that responsibility...sorry it isn't exactly the most fun part of this place.  Like going bowling with your friends, but they get the beer and you get the car keys....wait that's me too.   One day I too will have fun.

Lastly, this is as good a place as any to place our OOC comments concerning the threads posted here.  Playable...it goes here....clarification...that goes here....if I happen to use poor grammar, in a post...well put that here too.  No promises though....I am a write and post, then think kind of guy.

Thanks for your attention,

D-the mundane one behind the blacksmith

::gasp:: I am shocked to find out that YOU would break the rules...I mean...what is this world coming to?!  :lol:

But seriously (don't die from shock that I can be serious!)-- Congrats on the new folder, I know you have been waiting forever. I am not sure I have ever seen so many postings in so many places by someone waiting for a folder...that shows dedication. Of course, this might be commonplace and I just don't look around all that much.  :eek:

I have enjoyed all of your writings thus far and I have no doubt there are many more great things on the way.

Don't forget to cross post the stuff in Sjira's folder. You two have been working hard on that and it's a great thing to watch unfold. And that was my bossiness coming out. I know...you aren't used to seeing it.  :twisted:

Happy writings!

Because my first post in your folder wasn't wordy enough...

Where is the MUSIC THREAD, D?! Geeez, man, get with the times!   :cool:

I would have just started one but that might have been taking creative liberties and gotten me banned from the forge. So, instead...I will just yell at you and be the bossy wench everyone knows me to be.  :grin:

Congrats on the folder, nice to know just where to find this nicely-written SL without having to search too hard.

Small question, pt of clarification, whatever: NSFW meaning, I did search the MB and did not find it, I assume it to be an acronym, and I assume it to be Not Suitable For ......... but the only thing I could come up with that made sense for the W is wimps.

Heh?  Or are you having a grand laugh now at my expense??  ::grins::

Thanks for asking T,  I had to have this sent to me back when I was considering how far was too far.  I am an early Xer...generation that is, and sometimes PG 13, is difficult to remember.

Was working on a music thread when someone told me that I had to go to the RoH Annex...NOW!

I refuse to mention any names ::cough:: Raye ::cough::  Excuse me...I hate it when that happens so randomly...

Thanks for the the great welcome, and you have never shown me bossy...::points to the previous paragraph:: really don't know what you mean ::double handed index fingers pointing to the word NOW.

Thank you S'jira Mun for all the help you have given me and the home for some of those pesky threads when I was feeling particularly homeless.  I hope that we have a long relationship of PBP.

D~ the who is that guy and why is he so funny looking mun that whispers words into the ear of Kruger.

Nuts are good for the most part...unless you find a rotten peanut because those just kill you if you eat them anyway....::grins as the matter of bad jokes rears its ugly head once again::  Or so the song goes...

Why am I here?
« Reply #12 on: February 07, 2012, 06:30:11 PM »
Mun Explanation:  To look at this character's profile it might seem odd that she is found within Kruger's "Embers in the Dark" folder.  
I did in fact struggle with whether or not to bring this character into this section.  After all, what did she have to do with a blacksmith?  

There is a major theme that she represents that is parallel to being an Ember in the Dark and the writing will (eventually) speak to that.

There is also a major reason she is here and that is the warm welcome from Kruger's writer.  He could not have been more supporting, when I was questioning whether I would write her here at all or not, he listened to her background and provided a sounding board for my ideas, of where she had been and who she was trying to become (and therefore reach). I just wanted to publically thank him for all the conversations and tell anyone out there if they are looking for a place to write their character, this would be a great one!

After I began posting here, two things happened that let me know this character is in the right place.  (I call that confirmation and its important for anything I am trying to do or believe.)  One, a play with another character (first live play here) gave me the name for her entire section, provided the inspiration for each part of it that I would write, that they would all be "sparks" of some interior emotion, feeling, reason, etc. that would spring to life as some flame of story.  Two, a dear friend gave me a chapter from Isaiah and said he had been led by God to give it to me, that it was for me to read and study. Near the end of the chapter are these verses:

?See, it is I who created the blacksmith
who fans the coals into flame
and forges a weapon fit for its work.
And it is I who have created the destroyer to work havoc;
no weapon forged against you will prevail,
and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and this is their vindication from me,?
declares the Lord.   ~~~   Isaiah 54:16-17


Thanks for reading, now and in the future.
Please feel free to approach and engage Mari if you would like to write with me, I look forward to our interaction.
Peace!

Wow, thanks Mari mun.  I do understand what you mean about divine providence.  I also know that there are times when it seems a message is specific for you.  

You are welcome here, though my own writing is sporadic and tends to fall like an avalanche, then dry up until the next big snow.  Much of this is caused by my work.  Not that I am held extremely busy...well okay sometimes...but because my most productive mental times for writing are the hours between 10 and 5. I go in at my beginning and am lucky to get out on time.  In between I think, and then feel guilty because I can't put it all down.  I have forgotten more threads than I have ever written.  I would write down my thoughts, but the bosses tend to frown on my using business hours for personal things.  If I started to write at work...it would likely be my last day.  If it is my last day then my internet would surely die.  If my internet dies, then I won't be posting at all.  Therefore it is a necessary evil that I must work through my favorite time of the day.

D-still the reason that a certain blacksmith lives and breathes...what kind of fool am I?
