>So the question has been asked about boat-o-cross and flappy bird but would any of you play getting over it and how well would you do.
Tried it. Fuckin’ hate it. Took me 12 goddamn hours. The worst part is the constant droning by that asshole. I’d have turned the sound off but that’d mean he won.

>Who's the strongest person from another quest you think you could beat? Doesn't have to be the strongest in total, but whomever pops into your head when you think about it.
I could fuck up Victor, that weasel guy. Nine times out of ten, easy.

>what do you look for in an ideal mate?
I dunno, fat tits I guess.

>Okay, to any random quest character: what three things would you bring if you were stranded on a deserted island?
The fucks an island? Wait a second…

Alright, it’s just like, land in the middle of a big river.

First a monger lady to keep me and the rest alive with all that survival knowledge they’re supposed to have, a tat chick to figure out how to build shelter and shit, and a lanky to work for the tat so her twiggy arms don’t snap trying to lift a leaf. I can hunt and shit so we can probably survive indefinitely, assuming there’s like… shit on it that can keep us alive. If not, trade the lanky for another monger with fat tits.

>What myths do you know? Do you believe in any of them?
If I know it’s true it ain’t a myth, is it? Whatever.

I like the story my dad sings about Shaia shaping the earth for the slissas. He tells it all eloquent, but basically, way back when the world was in turmoil Shaia saw her creatures were frightened by the chaos that was had become their lives. So she took us, gave us our claws and her knowledge of her most precious creation, the land. She cracked it open and deposited us inside, and then closed it to keep us safe while the surface was changing. And that's why slissas live underground.

I mean, we dug back to the surface eventually, yeah, but pretty much every slissa agrees that was a huge fucking mistake because everyone up there suuuuuuuucks.

>Stickler downtime is... different from what I imagined.
ITQ stuff isn’t canon, so he can do shit like play video games or read Coxwette and Team Port Echo and really rudely interrupt me during my ITQ time. It lets us answer more questions.

[???] Hey CHI! Are SHINIES tasty?

Chi’s startled from her reverie, she was in the middle of a mid afternoon daydream session on the rooftop. She sticks her hand into her skirt pocket and pulls out a single SHINY. She gives it a lick, and after a moment eats it.

Chi: Dunno which stat you are, must be new.
Chi: But if I had to describe it they taste like the solid form of water.
Chi: Not like ice, but flavorless.
Chi: Though I’ve heard kin can grind it up and use it in anything from SALVES to FOOD
Chi: and there are ways to make it taste good
Chi: Though some kin like to eat them as a snack, eat enough and its kind of filling
Chi: [UNDERSTANDING] says there’s nutrients in them so you could make a meatless dietary supplement
Chi: But they come from CREATURES so it’s kind of a moot point if you’re trying to go VEGAN
Chi: Not that anyone CARES about going Vegan here, its mostly meat and seeds and similar stuff.
Chi: Well unless you start talking about the really good meals then thats a whole other thing.

>What myths do you know? Do you believe in any of them?
Let me tell of you a soon-to-be myth of the Tenth of Nine. Vlora Victus diVile, ArchMagus of the Flesh. This is how she came to earn her names.

Her first name was given to her by a whore mother. Vibrant Vlora, the youngest of far too many, a child no one cared much about. She twisted and grew, little Victim Vlora. Picked on for her looks, her speech, her abominable personality. But what she also did, poor Voracious Vlora, is learn. Devouring knowledge. Every book, scroll, and scrap of paper she could find. And yes, she may have… experimented. Nothing alive, of course. Not until she was skilled enough to keep them that way. To know a thing, you must see its Veins. Study how every little bit connects to another. And when she was finally prepared, she descended. And oh, how Venomous that power felt running through her. How low she went. Not enough to fracture, true, but extraordinarily close to her end nonetheless. And young Vlora Vocal began to make noise. And they noticed.

Oh, Vivacious Vile, she impressed those who held the reins of sorcery. She was Vivacious! Vainglorious! Vindicated! She left the Vile home with her name adorned ‘di’. So, all who knew of the Basin’s deep history would know her as diVile. Blood of the Blooded. She went to the Shorn Abyss and became diVile Valedictorian. But she sequestered. Oh, the envy she felt from her lessers. Mutual disdain it's true, but it festered in their hearts. Perhaps that’s why they were sloppy. Why they cost her so, so much that one day. The day that turned into a week, which turned into a month which turned into years into CENTURIES-

She was put into a hell. There she gave herself another name. Her last for now. Victis. For she would be Victorious. Always. And she was. She survived. And when she was escaped… well the Voracious and Venomous Violent Victus Valorously delivered upon her Vain and Villainous peers… evil.

One day, even the gods will know her. And fear.

Vindictive. Vlora. Victus. diVile.

LAMB: “Get around?”

LAMB: There is no getting around the crimes committed against Heaven. My fate is what it is. My needs are what they are — both the needs of the flesh and the needs of my mission. “Deal with,” “get around” — no. There is only to endure.

LAMB: Every day whatever remnants of my soul may still cling to this corpse are putrifying. But I knew that was the price I would pay. Whenever the struggle overwhelms me I will be judged.

Here’s a question to all QMs. What has been the biggest “WTF” reaction you ever got while running a quest?

Or what reaction caught you the most off guard. Like the players liking or hating a throwaway NPC just a little to much, some minor plot point suddenly getting so much attention that it might as well be the next wonder of the world, players trying to fight something they shouldn’t, talk down someone who you thought they’d fight, or run when they could have easily win. Things like that.

nah, they just don't let him into ITQ threads anymore because they guy was quick to respond to any question even vaguely pointed in his direction and kind of hijacked the older threads by accident because since he responded so quickly and so often everyone just started asking his quest characters questions exclusively and just kind of ignored everyone else since he'd reply multiply times a day sometimes while most everyone else maybe replied once a week or less. So they banned him and gave him his own thread made exclusively for his quest characters to give all the other quest writers a chance to answer their own questions.

Honesty at its hytes of its popularity I didn't read it but I was aware of the reputation it had with the fans and how they acted in public. To me the story seemed a little bit to intimidating to understand with so many characters, its own vocabulary, and its own inside jokes. If anything I would say that I was primarily watching it from a distance, observing the art without really knowing its context and with such a huge fan base a lot of controversies papered. The loudest one that I remember and I am not sure if it is still going on the whole Vriska did nothing wrong debate. Not to mention how with more and more time passing Andrew Hussie became a polarizing individual. In one way to describe it Homestuck was the creation of early internet users and it grew into something much bigger until it became too big for its own good, I never read it nor am I sure if I ever will, it isn't for my taste of media that I like to engage with.

Blaziken: But growing humans need a balanced diet! Tracy and her husband cook most of the time, but I've been trying to learn how to be a chef myself so I can help around the house.

I heard in Nostalgia Quest, they had this idea of taking days off? I might like to try that.

Belle: “The anthro race has evolved so far from their roots that the whole predator / prey thing has become outdated, as for all intent and purposes we’re all the same species, as well as omnivores. So our politics are very similar to yours, having a right leaning party called the reptilians led by Bob Mole the… err… Mole, and the slightly less right leaning party called the demomice led by Clint Billton the Mallard. While there were a lot of Mammals vs. Reptiles/avians when said parties were founded, that point has also diminished over time.”

Belle: “Of course, there has been some… ah… historical figures in the past who has focused a lot more on the predator / prey subject…”

30th of april, 1945, in a bunker somewhere in Germany:
Goosdolf: “Those Soviet pigs and allied dogs may outnumber us, but we’ll show them why we predators are the superior species, right men!?” the only answer the goose gets is the sound of his wolf generals licking their chops and the clinking of cutlery, “Right men?”

This is most curious! So... I am not actually a PR-ARIA subsystem, but... a figment of someone's imagination, represented via text and images transmitted over a planet-spanning network? And so my purpose is not data processing and retention, but rather simply for entertainment...

So the text and images comprising my representation are merely expressions by an author! And as that author writes my dialogue and draws images of me, as they are doing this very instant... it may be fair to say that they are simulating me in their brain! So, I am effectively a biological subsystem, rather than an electronic one, albeit with an avatar that is ultimately electronic... And yet my responsibilities now are the same as they were before, albeit with a different underlying purpose...


...Hm. If I may be blunt, this revelation makes little difference to me.

People make a big deal of supposed existential angst of folk finding out they're fictional, but that seriously wouldn't have TOO much impact on your day to day life. It's just one of those things. And no one anywhere can say for certain that ultimately, their reality isn't fictional or artificial amyway.

Though if you have a means to know your audience or the tropes they like, you could play to that for some benefit if you're careful I guess. Bit of a tricky balance to that though!

The real fascinating thing is that you really are an electronic subsystem, but electronics itself is a biological subsystem. Currently a completely separate biological subsystem is telling your biological subsystem this, who may translate it in real time into electronic signals for you to receive. And there is an electronic subsystem greater than both biological subsystems, without which I would be unable to tell you this. This message you are receiving right now is

electronic(biological, biological(electronic))!

"Gosh, that's a good question. I can't remember the last time it happened, my handlers say that I get worse reviews when I'm one on one! Can you believe that? Something about me being a big blabbermouth and 'too intense'. I don't know what that last part means, but I'm happy I get the customers that I do!"
