Hi there, assuming you've come to see this profile implies you would want to know something about me. Well I'm your regular loquacious, nerdy, science loving, anime addicted, college going person. I like reading, poetry and writing a lot so expect some works from me...(if I ever finish them that is.)

 

A quatrain fills a little space,

Although it’s pretty small,

And often times, as in this case,

It has no point at all.

 

Some quotes that sound good to me:

 

"If you don't have time to read, you don't have time to write."

-Anonymous.

"Write without fear, edit without mercy."

-John Green

"If I waited for perfection I would never write a word."

-Margaret Arwood

“I define science fiction as the art of the possible. Fantasy is the art of the impossible”
-Ray Bradbury

"Nothing in this world exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is just specualtion."

-Anonymous

"May you live all the days of your life."

-Jonathan Swift.

"Love is a serious mental disease."

-Anonymous

"All that we see and seem is just a dream within a dream."

-Edgar Allan Po

"Everything that lives is designed to end. We are perpetually trapped in a never-ending spiral of life and death. Is this a curse? Or some kind of punishment? I often think about the god who blessed us with this cryptic puzzle...and wonder if we'll ever get the chance to kill him."

-2B, Nier Automata.

"If you want to live a happy life tie it to a goal not to people or things."

-Albert Einstein

 

Who will believe my verse in time to come,

If it were fill’d with your most high deserts?

Though yet, heaven knows, it is but as a tomb

Which hides your life and shows not half your parts.

If I could write the beauty of your eyes

And in fresh numbers number all your graces,

The age to come would say “This poet lies;

Such heavenly touches ne’er touch’d earthly faces.”

So should my papers, yellowed with their age,

Be scorn’d like old men of less truth than tongue,

And your true rights be term’d a poet’s rage

And stretched metre of an antique song: 

But were some child of yours alive that time,
You should live twice, in it and in my rhyme.

 

Autumn

The trees are in their autumn beauty, 

The forest paths are dry, 

Under the October twilight a water, 

Mirrors the still sky.

The Will Of The Lord

Charles IV, king of Bohemia and holy roman emperor was considered one of the most influential and successful rulers of his time. However, not all of his decisions were wise...

Special thanks to mazardark for his advice on historical combat, and to cricket for beta reading.

Also, this is an entry to Corgi's unofficial contest of the lords and my first story on the site.


Kimi Ni Todoke
unpublished

 

This fan fiction is based on 'Kimi Ni Todoke' a manga series. If you don't want your experience with the manga to be spoiled then please do not read this.

To any fellow otaku fans out there I apologize if I'm not able to give you the level of depth you experience from the actual manga(since I'm nowhere near the level of Karuho Shiina)but nevertheless I hope you like this.

To all other readers, well if you know about the series it certainly would help to better grasp and "feel" the story, but if you don't want to go through the painstaking effort of reading scans from the net (and ruining your laptop with viruses) then you can treat this as an individual story too; that being said I highly recommend you read the series later though. 

Hope you enjoy!

From a great height, is based on a wonderful and unique concept and those story was very intriguing. The endings are masterfully crafted and the world building is superb and immersive. There’s a good amount of branching and it really feels like you decide your fate with each choice. Definitely worth a read.

Hey cupcake, get an avatar so we don’t confuse you with the normal noobs.


CYS: Vault Stories! on 6/16/2019 7:16:15 AM

Eh, Mizal had asked for only 5 people in her vault poll so I was just following suit, but it’s your choice.


CYS: Vault Stories! on 6/16/2019 5:30:53 AM

I discussed this idea on the discord and here I go! Inspired by Mizal’s thread on which CYS member would we be with in a vault in global nuclear annihilation. This is a thread where you can choose 5 members of your choice and write a fictional story of your life in a vault with them! Let your imaginations run wild and make your story however you want! This is a great opportunity to show appreciation for your CYS friends, show scorn for your CYS enemies, or roast everyone to your hearts content! There is no word limit, but still, make one sufficiently long enough through your own judgement.

I still remember those days, when she was with me. Her beautiful brown eyes and raven black hair, and her radiant beaming smile. I took the locket around my neck and stared at her beautiful face. With tears in my eyes, I take a step forward in the sky and fall...

Ahhhh, no worries; it’s my fault to post it first and then count the words. : P

I still remember those days, when she was with me. Her beautiful brown eyes and raven black hair, and her radiant beaming smile. I took the locket around my neck and stared at her beautiful face. With tears in my eyes, I take a step forward in the sky and fall...

A hint of raven black hair grazes over my face, as brown eyes stare back at me. Her smile, was as radiant as ever.

 

 


Poll: Vault CYS on 6/15/2019 10:13:13 AM

 Well, the fact that I’m halfway around the world from most of y’all would probably mean that this would likely never happen; but anyway here goes...

Most important part about living in a secluded spot with a group of people for years is not going mentally insane. As for life outside the vault, well as Mizal said, it really wouldn’t be that hard to rebuild so my choices are only going to be based with people who I get along(or like to think that I get along).

1) Undr- I know, I know she’s not been around here, but I really got along with her a lot. Being stuck in a vault for for decades with someone who I can brainstorm my sciency and nerdy stuff with would really help my mental health. Plus she’s Italian and is probably a good cook.

2) Derpussen- We get along well, I think. He’s one of the few people that I’ve chatted with in voice chat, and from what I know he’s a very hard worker. He also has experience in traveling around a lot and living in the country and those skills could come in value. Lastly, I think he has a feel of maturity which could make him a good leader of the group and keep the rest of us in line.’

3)Mayana- I think I get along with her too, since we’ve chatted a lot. Even though she has an obvious physical disadvantage, that could be easily made up with a little bit care from the others. Plus she has a very sharp mind and could be the team strategist and quartermaster who could effectively ration our supplies.

4) Mizal- I think we get along, since she was the first person here who I could properly chat with; and I think we could really be good friends IRL. She comes with the added advantage of being an adult and could kinda become like a motherly figure for our group of children, but well, if she gets annoyed she could easily decide to blow holes in all of us with her shotgun and keep all the supplies for herself, which I hope doesn’t happen so we’ll have to be careful...

 She and cricket would probably not get along, but I think overtime they will; since they don’t have any serious blood feud with each other(yet...)

5) Cricket- She’s pretty fun to be around with, and I like to think we get along; even though she thinks I’m some sort of ‘gay homo faggot’ and always has a general disdain for me. Most of all though, I think she has a very resilient mind and would probably not be one of those who go insane and begin killing everyone else due to long term confinement. She’s also extremely social, and her personality would probably help to reduce boredom, which is important since boredom could lead to a mental breakdown.

6) Me- My personality online and offline is of stark contrast. I like to think of myself as a somewhat social person, but I’m adaptable to wherever I go due to my family moving around a lot, I’ve lived in the country as well as a bustling city and managed to adapt. I’m friendly and most of my irl friends sometimes tell me I’m way to naïve for my own good, so that could be an issue I guess. I’ve done kickboxing for 1 and a half year so I have experience in hand to hand combat. I’ve also had a hobby of shooting for quite a while, so I’m fairly okay with most generic pistols and rifles. As for procurement of a gun in India, my mom always keeps one in the house, since it’s required in her line of work(and she taught me how to use one in the first place). 

Realistically speaking, this is almost impossible, unless any one of y’all are on vacation here on the day of Armageddon. The only person who could be with me is Nehal, since we’re in the same country; and I’ll probably shoot her in the face if she bothers me too much.

Seeing as none of y’all chose me, I’ll probably most likely be alone. 

Oh and honourable mention to Ninja, I’m not really sure about your abilities but you seem cool and calculated so o might replace you with cricket.

Ah yeah! My bad, lol. 


Poetry prompt: Week 15 on 6/8/2019 11:07:19 AM

I’ll first start with the context, premise is good and although a wee bit generic, there’s a good touch of creativity. I think this could’ve been a good poem if it was executed properly though.

The meter is very erratic, not only of each stanza, but also of each individual line. Poetry is a lot more than just finding the right rhyming words, and putting them together. The rhythm you followed in the first stanza, i.e. short, longer and long; if followed throughout the poem would’ve made it consistent. But instead, the second stanza, jumps to using the next three lines having the same length in rhythm. Each stanza following this, has a new rhythm to its lines. This is not good, especially in a form of poetry related to songs like the villianelle. When writing a villianelle, try and attempt to sing it along with the lines. In fact, there should be harmony in any poetry form, even freestyle form shows  consistency and some resemblance of using a definite meter.

This is an easily solved problem, learn about meters and how to structure a poem so that it sounds harmonious. Refer to this link:

https://www.creative-writing-now.com/poetry-meter.html

If you try to structure this poem here, I’m sure it’ll be a good piece of poetry; since the context was nice, but the execution of that context needs improvement.
