ninjapitka, The Reader
I'm new to this site and currently navigating through the intense process of creating a storygame. Like most people that sign up, I lost myself in the epics and wanted to create my own. It's a strange feeling to write a page and then feel like there's even more work to be done due to branching. Though difficult, the process feels productive and I can honestly see improvement in my writing since signing up here. Also, I've been enjoying the work that others have posted here.
I'm a bit hesitant to write a traditional "About Me" in case it influences the critique of my work, so I'll keep it vague: I recently graduated with a degree in Communications (emphasis in Media Studies) and began to work in the aerospace industry. This year I started reading a lot and wanted to try creating my own stories.
My name, "ninjapitka", was chosen for a few reasons:
ninja: I used to do parkour in high school and have a background in martial arts.
pitka: I have an unhealthy attraction to the movie The Love Guru. I know it's a trash movie, but I can't help myself from loving it. Also, Jessica Alba is it in.
What I'm reading now: The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky

Lol, maybe I should have written that better. It was supposed to be a soldier with PTSD.

I hear footsteps outside my bedroom door. The floorboard creaks and the movement ceases. This is it; they've finally found me. The pump of my shotgun echoes in the night. I unload both barrels screaming, "Die you fucking terrorist bastards!" Through the holes in my door, I see my daughter.

I tried that once, but it turned out to be women's tennis.

Leans more to the left side of the isle, although it doesn't seem like he pushes democratic policy on his listeners. I think he's more in the mindset of "do whatever the hell you want" as long as it doesn't hurt society or other people. At least that's the case when it comes to personal issues like orientation and trans debates. I couldn't tell you more than that, besides the fact that he's not a Trump fan, which doesn't say much because it's somewhat rare to find a fan of Trump outside the Midwest. Lol.

Common Sense. It's about the current political landscape and events. Actually, I just looked it up and he may have scrapped it... there hasn't been a new release in a year. It did run over 300 episodes though.

Have you listened to Dan Carlin's other podcast?

If you had to pick one, which would be your top choice? I've been listening to a few different ones this year and would like to expand my list. Currently, I listen to the Joe Rogan Experience, This Past Weekend with Theo Vonn, StarTalk Radio, and the Ben Shapiro show. The amount of diverse, successful, and interesting people on Rogan keeps it fresh and entertaining. His guests go from experts in nutrition to mathematicians to martial artists. The topic continuously changes and all the guests are highly skilled in their field. Theo Vonn is a comedian whose show is about joking around and being a better person. He has the most creative vulgarity I've ever witnessed so it's always a fun listen. I listen to StarTalk because I ran out of The Cosby Show episodes and Ben Shapiro to balance out the amount of CNN on my news feed.

That novel sounds intriguing. Can't wait to discover how Captain America ends in Narnia!
Seriously though, I am genuinely interested in how it goes.

Oh I completely agree with the ban. Judging by the post, a forum meltdown was eventually going to happen.

What's wrong with PMs? Or was he just spamming people?
