I'm demisexual, and finding a boyfriend/girlfriend who isn't just looking to Grey their Warden is an absolute nightmare. Especially when I can't even have nice conversations with people without them interpreting my attention as a proposition or flirting. For example:

1) To the dude I had a nice conversation with about Dragon Age: stop sending me pictures of yourself on facebook! I, LIKE PHARAOH RAMASSES II, REMAIN UNMOVED.

2) Struck up a friendly conversation with a man in line for lunch at Subway about the heat and the stupidly long line. Three minutes into the conversation he asked if I was single and if he could call me up after 7 (Three... MINUTES....). Proceeded to tell the man that I am asexual (it's an easier explanation), and he outright says that HE CAN WAIT. WOW.

3) Friend that I've known for years only recently learned about my breakup last year. Usually cool friend then asks if we can hang out and drink at my place, and when I ask why, he explains his intentions outright.

I... am so upset. I miss hugs and kisses and being in a relationship with someone, but the chances of finding someone who isn't looking for that other thing is so tiny that I want to cry, and have cried on more than one occasion.

ya i was right i cried and was also very stunned and want to scream??

I KNOW. Now guess who my main/first file romanced. DISTRESS.

I predicted that my co-worker would flake out of his increased workload because he's a lazy bum.

And now his desk is vacant.

Don't procrastinate at work, kiddies

Woke up this morning to an excruciating charley horse in my calf and hamstring.

I had a theory about Dragon Age and who Flemeth really was.

Then I played Inquisition and I was RIGHT AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA >:DDDDDD

I also predicted who the Colossal and Armored Titans were in AoT :p

Team Building / Re: Charizard-Y Doubles Trouble (RMT)

((Apologies for the double post!))

An alternative to Grumpig in this build is a nasty piece of work that I used back in the DPPt days.

Drifblim @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Unburden
EVs: 252 HP / 140 Def / 116 SpD
Bold Nature
- Ominous Wind
- Stockpile/Disable
- Minimize/Recycle
- Baton Pass


This Drifblim was a piece of work. Really the only thing that can shut it down is a hazing move like Haze or Clear Smog. If Drifblim has enough Minimizes in there, it can dodge Roar/Dragon Tail/Circle Throw/Whirlwind. Minimize + Stockpile is a nasty combination, especially on a high HP Pokemon like Drifblim, who can absorb hits like a champion. Baton Passing those boosts to a teammate usually spells the end (usually from forfeit, from my experience ;p). Ominous Wind is there so that Drifblim can, if Taunted, still gets some hits in and still potentially get some boosts in. Ominous Wind has a chance of raising Speed, too, meaning that Drifblim has a chance of Baton Passing to one of its slower teammates like Trevenant or Snorlax (even without the Speed boost, max Stockpile + even 1 Minimize makes any of her teammates almost unbeatable).

Disable can be used over Stockpile, shutting down Choice users and granting Drifblim a free turn to use Minimize. An alternative to Disable + Minimize is Stockpile + Recycle. With the Stockpile buffs, it encourages the opponent to use super-effective moves. If the enemy hits Drifblim with a super-effective move, that's a free +2 to Atk and Sp.Atk. Recycle allows Drifblim to use it again, so if the enemy tries to take Drifblim down again with a super-effective move, that's another free Weakness Policy boost, taking Drifblim's stats to +4 Atk and +4 Sp.Atk. The main issue with Recycle Drifblim, however, is that it doesn't get reliable healing, so if Drifblim is hit super hard it's forced to Baton Pass early.

Drifblim having Stockpile makes Snorlax's Stockpile redundant, which means that Snorlax's Stockpile can be exchanged for something like Recycle which allows Snorlax to use Rest again without fail. Or, Snorlax can replace Stockpile with another attacking move like Earthquake or even Focus Punch thanks to Minimize.

The main issue with switching Grumpig for Drifblim is that the team looses access to Heal Bell, which means if they run into someone who runs a wall/stall team the battle is going to get long and messy.

Critique appreciated and encouraged! Thanks guys!

Username/Preferred Name: Shira/Lily
What you're interested in: Managing a tumblr or twitter account? (I can't take on too much stuff with my job)
Specifics: Use twitter and tumblr to advertise and blog about new Pokemon developments, competitive strategy, reviews, etc.
How much time you can contribute: That depends. I can get a lot of social media stuff done during my lunchbreaks, and when we don't have a crunch I have about 2 or so hours each day to myself, but if we are in a crunch I'm going to be working with little sleep.
Do you have an existing stream or tumblr account?: I do, but I can't share it on a child-friendly forum. I reblog some NSFW stuff (nudity, swearing,  etc.)
Anything else to add?: Yeah. I can draw and paint and color artwork if we need some extra.

I got sinusitis and the boss won't let me come in and work.

It's not like I was saving my sick days for vacation or anything. Thanks sinuses.

I managed to make a male Lavellan inquisitor that doesn't look like a doe-eyed, pale skinned, white haired anime twelve year old


Just paid off my last non-Sallie Mae loan!! but they are the true loan sharks and they are still in the water ;__;

Small victories.

I joined in senior year of high school... now I'm 23 and have a BFA in Animation and work at Floyd County Productions.

I used to log on every day when I signed up, and now today is the first day that I've logged on since August 2014.

The website is slowing down a little bit, but I still feel so nostalgic logging on and talking about Pokemon. My coworkers are super cool, but a handful of them are pokemon fans, and only my friends from college still play (and only 2 have XY/ORAS).

It's nice going online and talking to people who love the same things that I do, and it's really refreshing seeing old faces from when I was more active still involved and popping up around

Even if things are slowing down and people are moving on, I still thoroughly enjoy revisiting the forums and browsing. It's nostalgic, and seeing both new and old faces just... IDK, it makes me happy.

I sound like an old woman, the way I prattle on about nostalgia. I am truly a 90s kid.
