I'd love to see some new stuff in the fanfiction/comics archives. And fanart...and fanmusic....

Fan-related things in general, i guess, lol. :D

It's so easy to ruffle their feathers, too :) When it comes down to it, it's prolly why I dress the way I do in the first place. Nevermind the aesthetic appeal of goth clothes, and that I feel more comfortable in them. When I decided to start wearing black it was because my mom didn't want me to >D

I love upsetting the people around here with my liberal views, especially since there're a lot of over-religious catholics here. I respect their religion, but when they start shoveling it down my throat I fight back :o But I have to be careful with it since my family is conservative too...I could get thrown out if I pushed it too far :/

But myes, you should totally do it! It's great fun to raise awareness on the issue and you're always bound to get some very interesting comments from people who've never heard of it.

I'm all in favor of demonstrating for rights but this has always seemed like a dumb idea to me.

Something about "let's protest by not saying anything... THAT will let us be heard!" seems like self-defeating logic. At least the almost-analagous thing in California where all immigrants didn't show up to work caused serious repercussions?

Also when I was in high school, gay kids would be beaten up no matter what and this would have done nothing to change the minds of bullys? (I am from an area where conservatism and idiotism run high.) And when I was in college, pretty much everyone was cool with folks of any sexual variety, so the "protest" was entirely moot?

BUT WHATEVS! Good luck to folks who want to make a point.

Eh, I can see the self-defeating logic in the event, but then, wearing pink ribbons isn't exactly going to do anything about breast cancer. Raising awareness /about/ breast cancer is what is going to encourage scientists and doctors to find a cure, and remind women to get checkups and etc. That was a bad example *sweatdrop*.

It's an awareness thing. The more people are aware that this is an issue, the better chances are that something will be done about it.

I feel ya on the living in a conservative area...the three years I've been participating in this event I've been lambasted by over-religious kids and disapproving glares from teachers. I've learned to ignore it and just do what I want, if they don't like it then they just have to deal.

Sounds really really great! I like the yellow ribbons on the legs quite a bit. Is the jester hat going to be a typical (5-points, bells type) hat, custom-made, or like a floppy one?

Be sure to put up pictures! In-progress shots are great to to get feedback for tweaking stuff or whatever. (and it's fun to watch a costume coming along :) :D)

In Topic: Which NiGHTS character do you relate to the most?

28 January 2009 - 03:30 AM

Seems NiGHTS as a character has affected us all in our personalities and beliefs/likes and dislikes. Not a surprise, really. Being here in and of itself is a testament to the game's profound effect, even after what, 12 years? It's something we get to have with us forever through our personalities and actions.

Personally, I too relate to NiGHTS the most. I get bored with routine fast :/ and make it my goal to be different as possible! I also love DDR- moving gracefully to a fast tempo really gets me amped. :lol: IDK, that seems NiGHTS-like. In a way. Sorta.
