Hello!
I'm a blind teenage girl. Most of my time here is spent reading stories or writing stupid things on the forums, but I sometimes write short stories and poems as well. English isn't my first language, so any feedback is welcome! Up for a duel anytime.
Feel free to visit My Mastodon profile.
Have a nice day, Mayana.

You guys really can't remember who Pixie is? Perhaps this'll refresh your memory, then. "At any rate, I am required to exchange codenames with you. I go by the code name Pixie, but I will end you if you call me that. Just call me Trina." Anyway, option 1 it is. We don't really have anything else, and it seems like the best one for Pennyworth anyway.

1. Let's make sure we really do win this thing. We'll have plenty of time to smile at the crowd when we're being given our prize. But wait a minute! Most of that prize is food. What if the plot twist is that the judges ate it all? That'd fit right in with the game.

Hmm, let's see. Seems like we've got yet another 10 year old that threw a tantrum and ... 39? Oh dear. Look sir, I'm honestly not sure what you were trying to accomplish here. It seems to me like you don't even want to be in the Discord at all. Why would you be? You hate both reading and writing, and clearly don't think any more highly of the members of this site. So what do you even want to do there? And even if you do want to get back into the CYS Discord for some reason, I still can't see the problem. You were given a small, simple task; something that someone who actually wanted to join the Discord would've had no problem doing. Just a test with which the server owners could judge if they made a mistake and you were a cool guy who likes CYOAs and who'd be fun to talk to, or if they were right in assuming you could not act maturely. In case you can't guess, you've proven them right. You got offended, whined and insulted everyone, even those who were trying to help you, in bad English. Perhaps you might feel that, because of your age, you should be given more respect. But if you want to be treated by others like you're a mature adult, you should act like one, first. Look at this. This whole thread. Would you honestly feel proud if you were acting like this in real life? Would you feel ok showing this friend to your family, friends, coworkers? Hell, your kids're probably going to see this eventually. What do you think they'll think? I hope they don't decide to learn how to be a good internet citizen from you. I thought adults were supposed to be cool.

I like Zorek. It seems the most like a name a tavern owner would have. Probably a big, tough, grumpy sort of dude. But a jerk with a heart of gold, of course. On an unrelated note, how's Manuskript working out for you?

1. 3's definitely not an option, since doing things halfway would just result in us fucking everything up. And we're clearly the best at helping Rory. Someone else would just screw it up, somehow. Hopefully we can comfort him quickly and still get to choose. If not, well, we've got this either way, I'm sure. :P

1. Because we're bold and stupid. Fuck safety! Win or die!

1. We should've made some barbarian costumes or something. Oh well, let's see if we can look super tough without them.

1. I bet it's a cool scar and will just make us look more handsome.

Well uh ... it's just software I found recommended in some huge list of open source programs. I've never used it. But someone was asking for writing programs, so I figured I'd recommend it and use them as a test subject.

It seems like it might be useful, though. It has an outliner, distraction-free mode, simple and fiction modes, a frequency analyzer for seeing what words you use too often ... all sorts of features. I've no clue how well it compares to Scrivener, but at least it's free. You can check it out here

3. Betting is frowned upon apparently, so let's not admit we also did it in front of everyone else. And while 4 is certainly a good point, right now we need everyone's morale to be as high as possible. So 3's a reasonable and neutral option.
