Thanks. Yeah, I will keep going, it's just that I'm waiting for her to post around ~20 drawings instead of bumping this thread everyday for each drawing, so things are going to progress slowly, but I will keep it up.

On the brighter side, I finalized all my tests from the first year's period, so I can go back to spend my time freely inside my house and translate other things I have delayed. I halted lol's games for a while, one was somewhere around %50 complete, the other had all the text drained. Hopefully I can finally speed that up.
And after that… who knows. Symphonic Rain has been on my list for a while, maybe it's about time I try it. Okazaki-san's voice was always so calming, and her lyrics are so simple yet deep. Sometimes I wake up and realize I'm still on my computer as the playlist rolls her songs. Sometimes I wish she was still alive. But something tells me that then I wouldn't like her stuff that much for the same reason.

I been feeling lately like a lot of the interest that normalfags take in Asiatic culture is somewhat disingenuous. In an attempt to appear more, "cultured", people have started moving away from European stuff and focusing on more, "exotic", cultures to seem more well-rounded. To me, it seems like they're forcing themselves to take appear like they've taken an interest in something to put on airs. A lot of what they focus on and glamorize were also at one point mundane, normal parts of life to their original practitioners. And now these people are coming in and treating it like some kind of high art. Even though they supposedly moved away from traditional European traditional culture, they still change their subjects of interest to better fit that mold of treatment. A good example of this is how the Michelin Star guide, which is almost entirely made up of indistinguishable, massively expensive French restaurants, randomly decided to throw in one Dim-Sum place. These people also completely ignore more contemporary Asian culture in favor of an obsolete version of ancient traditions, which have actually been updated for modern times by the people who made those traditions. You don't see these people try to emulate an eighteenth century English tea party. There's just something off-putting to me about the image of a bunch of snobbish, old, white people sitting around in Kimonos and obsessing over all the intricacies of a tea-ceremony in a class they payed to take and attend once a week in between golf games. Is this all just in my head, or does anybody else feel the same way?

Yep. Christianity = God. How fucking retarded are you? A system of belief is not the same thing as a a metaphysical entity. Did you pass the fifth grade?
>Not gonna bother.
You do know that there's still child prostitutes in some parts of the world? If the great Romans and other pagans did it, why wouldn't we do it now? Tell me.
>Being remembered by people from the future that are irrelevant to you is something very important
Without shit being recorded, culture has less weight to it. New generations can't get as much from it. Culture is not a means to an end. It has nothing to do with wanting people to remember me. You're pulling that out of your ass.
>the foreign jewish tale
The tale isn't white people's legacy, what was inspired by it is you ignoramus.
>Cucktianity is so good it needed to genocide whites (great massacres and executions of unarmed men who refused to convert in britain for instance) to be put in place. Looks like great stuff for whites!
Greeks and Romans totally weren't just as violent about equally stupid shit. Before it was being killed for no reason or land, and then it was being killed for not converting. At least in one you can actually save yourself instead of being killed for living in the same place as a disliked group. I'd say that's a step up. If you haven't realized that pagans, especially the less advanced ones were far more brutal, you have no clue what you are talking about.

That both does not accurately describe modern liberalism specifically or is in any way related to my first post. You ran out of things to say pretty quick after you went through your laundry list of talking points. You can't actually address a point directly, you have to always side-step to regurgitate something somebody else already said.

My grandpa died a few months ago. He was a fairly prominent choreographer in the USSR. The last time I saw was when I still in a crib, so I have no memory of him. We don't speak the same language, so I also didn't get the chance to talk to him even once. I was sad about not being sad. My grandpa was very… eccentric. Since decades ago, both him and my grandmother obsessed about his health. Even while my mother was growing up, him and his physical well-being were always the top priority. Every time he so much as had a cough both of them would start worrying about it and go to the doctor. There's a saying that goes something like this: you shouldn't have a complicated relationship with your doctor. Well, he did. He at one point was a shoemakers apprentice, but after being drafted from some war he gave up on that. He actually left the draft by faking appendicitis. After that he decided to be a dancer, and he was pretty good. I'm nobody to judge him, but he wasn't what most would call a good person, and neither was his wife. For a while, my mother, her mother, her father and her aunt all lived in the same place, in some tiny shack. My mother and her parents shared a room. Sometimes, during winter nights, my grandmother would nag him incessantly for hours on end about absolutely nothing. He's eventually get so fed up that he would strangle her while she called for her sister to help. This didn't just happen once, and it was all in front of my mother. Normally my grandfather wasn't abusive or anything. He never harmed my mother. Other than those times nothing else would really happen to my knowledge. My grandfather was actually pretty cowardly. They eventually moved to an apartment closer to where everything was going on. One time, at night they heard a woman screaming outside and my grandfather was absolutely terrified. Pretty weirdly, when my grandmother shouted at the voice to go away it suddenly came to an abrupt stop. Pedophiles would try to lure my mother into their houses while she was walking to her home in that neighborhood sometimes. My mother had a half-sister on her father's side as my grandmother was his second wife. My grandparents, especially my grandmother, treated her awfully and that could best be described by one event. When my half-aunt's mother died, before the funeral her body was kept in my grandparent's apartment for some reason. No casket, no nothing. An exposed dead body. They forced my mother's sister to sleep in the same room asPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

My grandad was a really prominent doctor in my hometown in Siberia, a lot of the doctors there still remember him since they were his students, his portraits still hang on the walls of the city's main hospital.

He really liked money and was a serious capitalist even before the 90s, he would often sign up for risky jobs that paid a lot, like working in Soviet-occupied Afghanistan.

When I was 2 he took me and my parents to a third world country where he was offered a high-paying job as a foreign specialist and then he just passed away unexpectedly. My whole life was basically ruined right from the beginning because my idiot parents decided to remain there instead of going back to Russia or at least some first-world country.

Thoughts on tvtropes. I think it's shit. None of the page titles make any sense or suggest what they're talking about. All of the articles are mostly just made up of referring to other tropes by their confusing, made-up names so the whole thing is just nonsense and worthless.

The worst part about tvtropes is that I actually like the concept. Patterns and cliches do exist in ficion and I do think that that could spawn an actually interesting encyclopedia. Maybe the history of the trope and how its origins and development were affected by the real world could be discussed to add some more substance, or maybe instead of just describing a trope, there could also be an explanation of the motivations writers have for using that trope and how it could be done better or worse. There's a million better ways to make a better tvtropes, but to make them you have to actually rub two brain cells together so it doesn't become a lazy clusterfuck.
>literally going on TVTropes and picking out trope pages that fit your premise
Oh, god, people actually do that? That is hands down the worst way to write a story that I have ever heard. I heard once from somewhere that good artists borrow, and great artists steal; they force their accumulated influences through their own creative process. Picking out tropes to make some fanfiction tier garbage is like imagining that you're asking somebody else to ask another guy to borrow something for a quick second.

I agree with a lot of this. Good characters are three dimensional, well-written, and complex. Their personalities should not consist of jargon that makes up a basic, overdone archetype. In my opinion, tvtropes is good if you want to read a quick summary of a work, but not much else. People shouldn't be applying tropes to real life.

>There's a million better ways to make a better tvtropes, but to make them you have to actually rub two brain cells together so it doesn't become a lazy clusterfuck.


Tvtropes was actually worse a few years back, when Fast Eddie ran it. Recently, the site was revamped to get rid of shit like troper tales. It's a lot better than it used to be, but still has godawful pages like the ones posted here. Personally I wish the YN article would be rewritten and the WMG page done away with. It would be much better in that case.

If you don't already know of this, you may be interested in the Aarne-Thompson classification system, it's specifically for folktales and groups them together in stuff they have in common. I think you're onto something, folklorists and other areas of study might already do this, without the tropey autism and rambling. Yeah, I personally 'wrote by tropes' myself once and nothing came of it because it didn't magically gel into a plot like I was expecting. What I ended up having was a genre written down, character -designs- (not even characters) and a shitload of tabs open on tropes I wanted to include or 'subvert'. Didn't even have a synopsis from start to end, any chapter summaries or even a single event down. I genuinely thought what I was doing was part of the process of writing but it was procrastinating at best, delaying the birth of whatever trope-infested spawn I envisioned at the time.
>good artists borrow, and great artists steal
Funny you mention that, I was going to say something like that in the post you replied to but I wasn't sure how it went. I thought it was like "good artists steal, great artists get away with it" but maybe that's a tongue-in-cheek warped version picked up from somewhere.

I haven't heard of it before, but it seems very interesting. It's definitely not perfect, but it's miles ahead of tv trope's cluster fuck approach. The longer, but more descriptive names are a lot better than something short, but made up. I prefer Cruel mother-in-law plans death of daughter-in-law to the dobbly foobly. I find it interesting that there's no index for character types. I guess that might fall under motifs. It still has problems like looking at stories on a macro-level instead of delving into deeper analysis and stories being grouped into one tale type despite having having a lot of differences. It's also just an index system, so I don't think there's any articles attached to the index entries. It could definitely work as a model for how things should be done though. Thanks for sharing.

Because it's completely outside the topic of conversation, or at least you didn't make the effort to actually point out why it's relevant. I understand that you present normal behavior vs non-normal behavior, but what you don't realize is that with this analogy you are implying "normal" people engage in these "weird behaviors" towards aspies on purpose because they have aspergers, and then in the next post you tell me "normal people" get pissed off when aspies do this "weird shit". It's just too confusing because the information doesn't correlate and your point doesn't stand out at all. You're complaining that normal people pisses aspies on purpose by doing weird things but also telling me that they get mad when aspies engage in weird behavior, just what the hell is the point there? That's just people getting pissed when others do stupid shit. It doesn't have anything to do with what we were discussing just now.

There's a legend that the violinist Giuseppe Tartini kept himself in a room to practice almost constantly for years. When he reconnected with the world, it's said that it was hard to believe how much better he had become. If you could lock yourself in a room for a year to practice a single skill with zero social or economic repercussions, would you do it and what skill would you choose? Here's the rules: All of your living expenses are paid for, but you can't leave your room for any reason other than to use the bathroom, you can't opt out once you start, you cannot have access to any form of entertainment other than, you must spend as much time as possible practicing.
