    The best part is that you have no chores tomorrow. You could've done only one load today, but you put in the effort to get all your laundry done in one day. :clap: Job well done, girl. I'm more than pleased with your hard work and putting in the extra effort.
  • KralicaSeptember 30th, 2022, 4:15 pm
    Thank you, Viper. It was worth it to have a free day tomorrow.
  • ViktorSeptember 30th, 2022, 4:17 pm
    Next week's laundry won't be like today's. It will be much easier.
  • KralicaSeptember 30th, 2022, 4:19 pm
    Yes, Viper. It pleases me to know I've done you proud.
  • ViktorSeptember 30th, 2022, 4:21 pm
    Oh I'm very proud of you, my dear. :h:
  • Phoenix Flaming StarSeptember 30th, 2022, 6:44 pm
    If you think Viktor and Kralica are two separate people on here, I'll take that as a compliment to my writing skills. :lol: I write as BOTH characters. They're both me! I write this whole dynamic as them because I like it and it helps me with staying on task with my ADHD. It's both fun and helpful for me. :)
  • Phoenix Flaming StarSeptember 30th, 2022, 6:48 pm
    Same with all the other characters on here. Arluna, Akayson, Maskak, Drayzid... They're all me! I play all of them, because I enjoy it.
  • Phoenix Flaming StarSeptember 30th, 2022, 6:48 pm
    I'm the only actual real person on here. Seriously. Not joking. Just me.
  • ViktorOctober 2nd, 2022, 1:15 pm
    Kralica, you're not leaving the kitchen unti dishes are done.
  • KralicaOctober 2nd, 2022, 1:16 pm
    What if I have to use the bathroom, Viper?
  • ViktorOctober 2nd, 2022, 1:19 pm
    You can go, but you are expected to be back in 5 minutes, or I'm coming to get you... You should never keep those who are relying on you waiting.
  • KralicaOctober 2nd, 2022, 1:21 pm
    You just want me to stay on track, that's basically it.
  • ViktorOctober 2nd, 2022, 1:22 pm
    Yes, that is my responsibility toward you, and I intend to fulfill my part of our dynamic.
  • KralicaOctober 2nd, 2022, 1:23 pm
    Understood, Viper.
  • ViktorOctober 2nd, 2022, 1:24 pm
    Good. Now get started.
  • KralicaOctober 2nd, 2022, 1:25 pm
    Yes, Viper
  • ViktorYesterday, 1:57 am
    Once again you've exceeded my expectations, Kralica. Well done. :r: I'm proud of you, my dear.
  • KralicaYesterday, 1:57 am
    Thank you, Viper. :)
  • KralicaYesterday, 11:25 pm
    Viper, may I ask you a question?
  • ViktorYesterday, 11:26 pm
    Yes, what is it Kralica?
  • KralicaYesterday, 11:26 pm
    Why didn't you ask me to do my chore today?
  • ViktorYesterday, 11:27 pm
    The bathroom simply doesn't need attention right now. You did such a good job last week, that I think that chore can be saved for next week. However, I would still like you to do your slow pushups. Now.
  • KralicaYesterday, 11:30 pm
    Yes, Viper.
  • ViktorYesterday, 11:37 pm
    On a scale of 1 - 10 (10 being the most difficult) how difficult was that?
  • KralicaYesterday, 11:38 pm
  • ViktorYesterday, 11:39 pm
    Ok. We're going to keep the pushups at a slow pace from here on out. When you get down to a 1 I'll increase the amount you have to do by 5. Is that understood?
  • KralicaYesterday, 11:39 pm
    Yes, Viper.
  • ViktorYesterday, 11:43 pm
    Remember, Kralica:
    Always be honest. If I can't trust you, our whole entire dynamic won't work out.
  • KralicaYesterday, 11:44 pm
    Yes, Viper. Thank you for reminding me.
  • Phoenix Flaming StarYesterday, 11:47 pm
    You two are so respectful and cute. :clap: I love it.
  • ViktorYesterday, 11:48 pm
    Thank you, Admin.
  • Phoenix Flaming StarYesterday, 11:49 pm
    You're both welcome. :)

    @Phoenix Flaming Star What do you think of RP's on Discord?
  • Phoenix Flaming Star27 minutes ago
    I'm not a fan. I prefer forums for RPing. :u:

    Same. :wink:
  • Phoenix Flaming Star14 minutes ago
    I've never really RP'ed on Discord. I just don't want to change what works for me. I'm sticking with forums, preferably this one. :tease:
  • Arluna Star14 minutes ago
    Good to know we're not going anywhere. :lol:
  • Phoenix Flaming Star14 minutes ago
    Of course not! :) I'm comfortable here.
  • Arluna Star10 minutes ago
    That brings me to another question. Would you allow new members? Like other people?
  • Phoenix Flaming Star5 minutes ago
    :what: That idea is not completely off the table. However, I'm concerned it would bring a huge change to the forum. I like what I have right now, and I don't want that to change. Let me put it this way: I'd only bring trusted friends here. Friends whom I know are comfortable with my material.
  • Arluna Star4 minutes ago
    Anyone you know right now?
  • Phoenix Flaming Star2 minutes ago
    Maybe, but unfortunately I know their too busy with their own life. She wouldn't have the time (and maybe no interest) in being here, so that rules her out.
  • Arluna Star2 minutes ago
    Anyone else?
  • Phoenix Flaming Star1 minute ago
    No. Those that come to mind, I don't trust them enough, so no.
  • Arluna Starjust now
Some other creative stuff that I am comfortable sharing publicly. *Please note this section has a different forum skin.*

I'm having a moment.

Post by Phoenix Flaming Star »

I'm having a moment right now. I'm watching Cobrak Kai Season 3 Ep: 7 and playing Ark (The Island map). I'm at the moment in the show where, in a memory, Mr. Miyagi is telling Daniel "It's OK lose to opponent. Must not lose to fear!"

That moment just made me pause and think about my time playing Ark.

I first started playing Ark back when it was really new (Beta, I think?) and I was on The Island map playing with some other people. My character got killed by a wild dino and I didn't take it well. I quit playing Ark. I hated the game. I didn't want to play it if I was just going to keep dying all the time. Fear had won. Fast forward to Jan. 2021. With a little coaxing from Zonks, I gave Ark another chance. Now, Ark's one of my favorite games!

In the case of Mr. Miyagi saying "It's OK lose to opponent. Must not lose to fear!" My "opponent" was the wild dinos. When I came back to Ark. I learned more about the game. I used cheats back then to help me get used to the game's mechanics. Yes, when wild dinos killed me, I still had my freakouts, but I had some good support. Zonks helped me learn the game and help me overcome my struggles. Now I love this game.

So in a sense, Mr. Miyagi's message is the same here. It's just a different scenario. If I had lost to my fear and refused to give Ark another chance, I wouldn't have learned and overcome those challenges.

This is the area I died in, when I quit Ark back then. Look at me now. I'm flying my tamed, level 215, Pteranodon over it. :) You're not taking me down without a fight, Ark!
Stay in the present moment.
