Title: CLANKER OR DARWINIST?
Post by: ArtfullyInsane on March 04, 2011, 01:40:40 PM
I'm an American. I can't decide!

Can you put a turncoat option up, please? Or a mad-scientist I like conbining them into one machine option, please?

Right now, I would pick Ottoman, exept they were/are loyal to the clankers, so it would be more clanker-ish-y

I'm going with American.  I think I'm mostly darwinist because I like the beasties, but I love to drive my car.  I think would enjoy driving a storm walker (and I wouldn't make it fall  :))

Title: Re: CLANKER OR DARWINIST?
Post by: Eclipse-chan~ on March 05, 2011, 11:48:00 AM
Yeah, I know. But I am totally brave! I rescued my chinchilla from the dreaded washing machine.

Awww, what happened there?
Title: Re: CLANKER OR DARWINIST?
Post by: FleaBird6 on March 05, 2011, 11:49:51 AM
Yes, WHAT HAPPENED?

I flushed dead fish.  And didn't hyperventilate.

Post by: Eclipse-chan~ on March 05, 2011, 11:52:12 AM
Well, you see, he accidenly escaped from his cage, and then he hopped into the open washing machine. He was scampering about and ended up getting stuck. I had to getley save him otherwise he would either A) drown or B) be squished next time my mom washes her things.

At first I was like - Darwinist all the way, but then I remembered Malone and thought of all the possibilities and had to go with American!

Title: Re: CLANKER OR DARWINIST?

Eddie: Hello, Boarlord Valgir, if I am correct? I was wondering if you'd do a follow up, and if the Adam boy and Derk kid would too, that would be GREAT.  Just come this way.
Volgar: WHAT did you just call me?
Eddie(flips through notes): Oh, your wildcount Volgar and Prince Aleksander and Midshipman Dylan Sharp. Now if you'd just come this way, it will only take 5 minutes, hurry al-
Volgar: Du bist ein Dummkoft! Nien! I will not be interveiwed by you.
Eddie: Really? It could get w-
Volar:-I said Nein! Nein! No! I challange you to a duel!
Eddie: Is it cuustomary for Austrians to duel? Why? And Why should I?
Volgar(pulls out saber): Because I am pointing a saber at your throut. En Garde!*probably wrong*
Eddie:What is this saber that you are speacking of? May I see it?(tries to take Volgar's saber.) Does it have any historical or sentimental value? Do Adam and Derek know-
Volgar: We are dueling! To the death! AND THIS IS MY SABER! MEIN! MEIN!
Eddie: You know, I am just going to leave... Right about now...(leaves)
(Alek and Deryn come out from behind door)
Alek: Is that crazy reporter gone yet?
Volgar: Yes, but he wouldn't be here in the forst place if not for YOU!
Deryn: Techinaly, it was me...
Volgar: I don't care. Resume dueling position, we shall continue this lesson.
Deryn: UUGHH! My barking arm hurts!
Alek: Mine doesn't!
Deryn: Well mine does.
(continue bickering, Volgar roles eyes)
Deryn: Did I mention I am a girl?
Alek: WHAT?(drops saber)
Volgar: So I was correct.
Deryn: I MADE ALEK DROP HIS SABER! I WIN!
Alek: No you dont.
Deryn: Yes I do
(cont. bickering, volgar roles eyes)
Deryn: What were we arguing about?
Alek:I forgot... How perplexing...
Deryn: Did I mention I am a girl?
Alek: WHAT?

Title: Re: CLANKER OR DARWINIST?
Post by: FleaBird6 on March 06, 2011, 04:10:39 PM

@ DarwinsAngel and Seven; LOL, thanks. You can see I've put a lot of thought into this, huh?
P.S. @DarwinsAngel: metephorical beard? Nice! :) *wishes for metaphorical beard*
Title: Re: CLANKER OR DARWINIST?
Post by: Kima-chan on June 01, 2011, 01:09:45 AM
I would totally be a Clanker. Not only because of somewhat of loyalty but also because I think I weren't able to cope with mutated animals.
Oh and when a walker breaks you can repair it but you can't revive an animal, so this wouldn't be an option.

Hi newbie!! That's cool that your decedents were from the Ottoman Empire. Mine are from Germany, but I still say I'm a Darwinist! :D
