I'm a newbie. You probably already knew that. Whoo.
Now what should I say?
Um... I like all of Scott's books. He's one of my favorite authors.
Oh, and my name. That would be Aelia. So yeah.
Hi.

'Ello! I'm Beth-la, and I also have an alter ego named Beast-la, but don't worry about her. I'm also certifiably insane and dislike avocados.


Do you guys think I'm scaring away the newbies with my eccentric welcome posts? Snort...that wouldn't be good. Just wondering.

But welcome.  :D

Hi Tridecagirl and Beth-la.
And no, you aren't scaring me. I'm okay with insane people. I'd have to say a majority of my friends in real life are insane, so I'm used to it.  :)

Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Aelia on August 27, 2011, 10:56:54 AM
Haha. On another fansite I go on the roleplays have completley taken over, and most of them are really bad, so it's kind of given me a negitive view of roleplays. But they're probably different here.
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Sing_in_the_Rain on August 27, 2011, 10:58:00 AM
most likely. there are a  few new ones. have you read Mortal Instruments? if not, I insist you go to the library right now.
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Emma-la on August 27, 2011, 10:59:28 AM
There are some really good writers here. I loooove the rps (I won't include myself as a great writer, cu compared to people like Rai and Mara and stuff I just aint that good)
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Aelia on August 27, 2011, 11:02:07 AM
Haha, I like writing, but I'm not very good at it. Even though I do a lot. But I guess that's what editing's for.
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Emma-la on August 27, 2011, 11:03:45 AM
I really enjoy writing and I'm not bad, but sometimes I look over my rp posts and I'm like "What was I thinking?"
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Aelia on August 27, 2011, 11:07:01 AM
I do that all the time with my writing. It's probably because I usually write when I'm tired. I wouldn't do that, but it's the only time I have.

Hell yeah. One of my fave bands ever.

I just figured out how to quote.
My friend recently made me obsessed with it. And now all I do in my spare time is find gifs from the music videos and look up Brendon Urie's face on tumblr.

Post by: Beth-la on August 27, 2011, 11:29:41 AM
Dude, you have no idea. His face makes me want to cry. Soooo pretty.

Haha, nice! My friend actually got me into them about 3 years ago, and I've loved them ever since. I love his lyrics...
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Aelia on August 27, 2011, 11:32:41 AM
I know. And all the weird faces he can make are hilarious.

I was listening to them last year, and for some reason I didn't like them. But I guess my tastes were a little different back then. And when you're wearing black slacks with accentuated off-white pinstripes everything goes according to plan.

I like them too. They're now always stuck in my head. But half of the time I try to stick them there anyways.
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Beth-la on August 28, 2011, 05:09:16 AM
Haha, last year at school for about a week, every time I went into the hallways I started singing their songs as loud as I could. People thought I was insane.

That sounds like fun. I would definitely do that if I could sing and wasn't so shy.

I don't speak French, but my mom does.
Thank you for the welcome. And I seem to be liking it here so far, but it's so big. There are so many threads.

Ha, as for the lots of threads, you'll figure it out. There will be certain ones you'll regularly post on, others you'll just completely ignore. It all depends.
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Aelia on August 28, 2011, 06:44:57 AM
my mom does too! ;D
She tries to teach me French, but I'm a failure. I can't pronounce anything. But then I'll try to talk to her in Spanish and she knows exactly what I'm saying. It can get kind of annoying at times.

That makes sense. I guess I'll figure it out.

That's why taking Latin is the way to go.  ;D
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Lin Lin-chan on August 28, 2011, 06:56:17 AM
I <3 Latin ;D it's the most epic language on earth, excluding finnish and basque.
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Aelia on August 28, 2011, 06:58:08 AM
Latin seems fun. I would have taken that this year if I wasn't going to take Chinese.
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Sing_in_the_Rain on August 28, 2011, 07:02:42 AM
they only offer French and Spanish for 7th and 8th grade... :P
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Beth-la on August 28, 2011, 07:10:50 AM
I wasn't even offered foreign language till this year (ninth grade). The choices are Latin, Spanish, French, German, and American Sign Language.
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Sing_in_the_Rain on August 28, 2011, 07:11:29 AM
oh cool. i think the high school offers French, Spanish, and Latin
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Aelia on August 28, 2011, 07:14:15 AM
In my school you're required to take Spanish from 4th through 6th, then in 7th and 8th you have the option of French, and in High School you can take Latin, Chinese, and Italian too.

goodness. heehee my french teacher is awesome. she taught us how to say shut up on the first day xD
Title: Re: Hi
Post by: Aelia on August 28, 2011, 08:45:40 AM
Yeah, lot of languages.
Your French teacher sounds nice. Most of the Spanish teachers I've had over the years haven't been that great. In fact, all of the languages teachers at the schools I've gone to were terrible except for one who was nice but didn't teach anything.
