IIDoragonII, The Reader
know I should be telling a little bit about myself here, but where is the fun in that?
A fun thought, ever thought about how massive everything around you is? Compared to the whole perspective of the universe we are all so incredibly small. Like 0000.1 percent of a microscopic version of the smallest particle. That's pretty scary.
Good luck sleeping tonight.
A list of favorite music pieces I listening to while in a thought process of ideas and stories:
Music such as this reach the very core of my being, plays on every emotional string of my mind and breathes fire into my soul.

Danish does sound weird, doesn't it? I've got family in Denmark and since they live so close to the border of Germany they are taught German in school. They do share some similarities. I guess it's because they are both part of the Germanic languages, which includes English, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic. Sorry, not here to force knowledge into your brain.
Hm, that might actually work, I think. Because the easiest way to memorise something is to create something interesting enough to actually remember it. But to learn and remember all the characters in two months, you'd probably have to be really smart, or very interested in learning. But that's insane, though. They have to spend so much time to learn their own language.

That's like two different languages, but is called the same. Funny. Oh, so France is like what Sweden and Denmark is to us Norwegian people. You can drive there for a short visit and drive back the same day. Travel isn't that big of a deal, like so many say it is, anyway. At times I think we are just so excited to see other places we forget to explore the parts of our own country.
You've picked up a word. That's great. I've always loved the Icelandic language for a great may reasons.
Yeah, that's a shame we can't. Would be much better to be able to use kana or kanji. But romaji works, although it's our alphabet. I'd be glad just to get some advice here and there. I've always struggled with the Japanese signs, mostly kanji. Can't seem to memorize it. I'd be happy to practice along with you sometime. Oh, I know that one. It's a part of their politeness, can also be used in an introduction, or well, after you've introduced yourself or someone else to another person.
On the bright side, you're probably more familiar with kanji than I am. Must be nice. And it's so much easier to learn a language when you are surrounded by native speakers.

Aha, true. Germany have different dialects? I had no idea. Norway as well, by the way. We have so many dialects, and some are actually more difficult to understand than others, but not entirely. Never traveled much myself, but I'm guessing it's quite the experience, like learning about cultures, history. Those are interesting factors. And I can agree to the language part. To know you are growing, becoming better that's a reward in itself, it gives you a sense of achievement.
Old languages change drastically through centuries. Take Icelandic for example, it originates from the Norse language which is quite a long time ago. It's fascinating, isn't it?
Then I know who I should ask if I need help with the Japanese. Had half a year with Japanese in school. It's a difficult language. Nothing can be compared to it. Then I dropped out, because it was hard and everyone was ahead of me. Got back to it though. A teacher I had in school went to Japan, stayed with a family there. I'm assuming that's what you did. I've always been intrigued by the thought, but it's really safe at home, you know.

Thanks, I'm grateful.
Both, actually. Learned British English in school, but outside I ended up with the American English because I didn't know there was a difference until much later. I do both now, so no problem at all.
Probably have some grammar flaws here and there, but that's to be expected. Taking it from a native language speaker, that means a lot, by the way. I always try to improve and get better.
At least, that's what most coming to Norway says. They really do find the language hard, and I get why. English and Norwegian share a few common traits. One of them being grammar that, at times, doesn't make much sense unless you study it hard. Main problem with the Norwegian language is that we have used the wrong grammar for such a long time, everyone probably use it incorrectly by now, with the exception of the experts within the language. Funny, isn't?
So what language are you doing? Like the regular ones, such as French or Spanish?

Wow, thank you so much for taking your time getting into detail and explaining it. That really means a lot to me. Think I'm getting a good sense of how to properly use it now. Or well, we'll see if I have once I've published the finished product of the story I'm working on. English is rather confusing at times. At times I end up sitting, scratching my head, wondering how it all makes sense.
Norwegian is my first language, which is also a difficult language, even for a native Norwegian speaker.

Ah, I'll keep that in mind next time I have a question like that.
Thanks for the help. Think I get it now.

English isn't my first language and I am a little uncertain about the 'it is' and 'there is'. I always write what I think sounds the most natural. But in most cases, they both feel correct.
Question is, how are they used correctly?

Haven't read it. Got a link?

That's a good advice, thanks. And I probably should. Besides sheep isn't really that interesting. They only are when you're tired. So let's not talk about them. It was a horrible idea. Alright, games. Games I can talk about.

Well, not bad. I guess.
Yeah, well that's good news. Although, I'm afraid I'd probably flop straight into that "good guy" category in a blink of an eye. Sadly. Or that depends.
By the way. I've read one of your story games, the necromancer one. Was actually the first one I ever read. Got me really hooked, so guess I should thank you for that.
