God save the...

...Queen. I'm from England. Sorry, @Gower. Can't be helped, really.

I've been lurking around CYS for a while, playing with friends from time to time, and looking forward to writing about a dozen storygames all at once, cos I have too many ideas. (So many good ideas on here to give me ideas...) I'll probably even finish one or two.

Do you know Gower?

Does that mean you're from that other site?

Anyhow, sounds like you've got idea-itis. I know how that is. You're already suffering enough.

Yeah, CYS only gonna make it worse I guess...

Oh no, I can't say I know Gower, more than I know what I'm having for dinner next week. I just know he disapproves of us Brits' laxness when it comes to commas. That I do know.

Other side of the pond perhaps, but I don't know the other site, sorry...

If you dont know the other site then you should keep it that way

Wisdom indeed. I consider myself warned.

Gower is a mod at another site and sometimes he lures people here for us to bully and throw rocks at.

But it doesn't seem you need to worry about that. All your paperwork is in order, carry on citizen.

Cause no trouble. Glory to CYStia.

Oof! Cystia sounds like a worse disease than idea-itis. But maybe I'm unversed in the diseases creatives suffer from. On your side of the pond, at least.

How interesting. For someone so well-spoken that seems really quite low. Nope, definitely not me. I'm not from there, never, no...

Ah, no trouble. Hmm. Can't promise that. I'll blame the idea-itis when I do. Err, if I do... (!)

I don't disapprove of your commas.  I just raise one eyebrow slightly and say nothing.

Now, the oo_ word, that, I disapprove of.

Ah...Well, you see, to a Brit, a raised eyebrow and potentially withheld criticism is tantamount to a harsh rebuke. We're funny like that.

Shouldn't that be **f?

So is CYStia an established term?

Really? As a citizen of the Republic of Tea and Crumpets myself, I'd say by biggest grammatical crime is my over use of commas. (That and my apparent inability of distingushing its from it's.)

Hooray! Another blighted neighbour! How do you do?

Republic, though....? Not last time I checked...now that would surely spoil the tea!

At this point I'm happy if I don't see i'ts on a paper.

So how do you feel about Sid Vicious' version?

God save the...

If I'm honest that's more prominent in my mind than our national anthem. Me and my housemate (English) live with an American, and no sooner is 'God save the queen' out of his mouth, than 'and the fascist regime' comes out of mine...we use it - conveniently - more to rile our housemate than anything else.

Not that I'm radically (or even meaningfully) anti-monarchy, but, as is the case for many true Brits, we're just fairly indifferent to the royals. Germans love the royal family, I know. And hey, they're good for our economy, right? I'ts interesting seeing Harry himself rebel and leave that all behind. I wonder what he makes of the Sex Pistols' version :)

Crumpet-loving anarchists. The worst kind. I've heard some of the really hardcore mutineers even dunk their crumpets in their tea...

(Meant to follow the comment about Avery being an anarchist !) No deliberate anarchical mis-replying involved...

I'd be curious to hear Avery's take on this too.

Welcome to the site! And yes, beware the Gower glare! It can be intimidating...

Thanks! I've landed a cosy place amongst the order of the architects :) (What are we, Hufflepuff, something like that? Or Ravenclaw?)

We do our very best to avoid making such comparisons. 

 

 

 

 

But we all know who Hufflepuff is.
