I’m sure it’s still Sunday somewhere.
Hello people of the SGE Council!! You’re in luck this is the last time I have to be late before the more responsible Eliot takes over.
How was your week? The weather is finally getting nice where I am, so that’s been great. I spent today learning math jokes! Let me know if you want to hear them. Which y…[Read more]
Some excerpts from Catching Stars:
I have always told myself that I am too quick to trust others, and that is probably correct. Alliances will bring you help, power, and sometimes safety, but all alliances eventually break, unless they are not ones formed for survival, but for companionship. In the end, only the latter choose to stay with one…[Read more]
Okie, so Wyn’s book sounds super
And then for the question thingy–I would definitely let people use their talents in, like, a game of freeze tag or cops & robbers, but the teams would be very mixed in the sense that they would actually have to work together (e.g. Nevers and Evers, students who dislike each other, etc.)…[Read more]
Yes, mixed teams sound awesome! Besides, you need a good defense and offense, and the schools tend to specialize in those areas. Ahhhh tag with special talents sounds like a masterful disaster!
Holi sounds like so much fun but I really don’t know anything about it.
Hm. *adds to mental list of books to read if I see them*…you stayed up til 1…[Read more]
My week was alright. Today was my last day of school and now it’s the Easter holidays for 2 and a half weeks, so that’s fun. I finished my reread of 1984 last night, and am now reading Misery by Stephen King NO SPOILERS
I’m also trying to persuade my parents to let me read Game of Thrones, so if anyone has any advice there that would be…[Read more]
2 and half weeks! Lucky! I get one and a day.
Oh, three more books for my “should probably read” list.
Oh I really want to see Hamilton. But I am subscribed to exactly 1 streaming service and they do not have Hamilton.
Waiiiit I love that. Someone write these ideas down, we should RP play them.
It is fuzzy caterpillar season in my state and I am not taking it well, where I live we don’t have the trees they live in so I’ve never had to deal with them, where I work? I went on break and my car was covered with them. These caterpillars are bloody huge and super resilient (survived three rounds of constant spraying with the hose) not fun. On…[Read more]
THERE ARE DEADLY FUZZY CATERPILLARS?!? Oh no I love the fuzzy caterpillars! I didn’t know they were deadly ahhhh
It does feel that way, but I imagine that’s just because it’s on the news now. Sigh.
It does! How would a plant hold a bat? Magic? The questions are endless.
… I might steal this idea.
so, obviously tottenham hotspurs would have all the magic on their side because they’re amazing
…that was my sister, but I’ll just leave it here. i have no opinion on football (football is the only word i allow myself to use. none of this soccer nonsense. your football is a strange amalgamation of football and rugby, and so I declare that it…[Read more]
I have no idea what is going on but………………
Honestly rugball is a much better name than “football” for a game where no one users there feet. – an american
rugball has a certain fun whimsy to it that both rugby and football lack
tbh, all i know about
american football rugball is that somewhere in the rugball universe, there are quarterbacks and touchdowns. those are the only two facts I know with any certainty.
yea rugball makes no sense but everyone cares about it. a lot.
Hmm, I didn’t get this notif. Strange.
Ahahaha yes right “much more responsible Eliot” indeed very very responsible *glances at the calendar and scurries away*
ah football makes no sense but it’s some sort of national sport
even though we are terrible at it. I mean, really terrible.
soccer makes complete sense! Get the ball into the net, keep it away from the other team, and don’t use your hands. It reminds me of keep the balloon in the air, where it has a simple goal with a few extra challenges. It’s a child’s game with the addition of some extra rules to make the game a bit more fair, like offsides. Rugball is pr…[Read more]
i don’t understand football at all, any of them, so when I say that it doesn’t make sense it’s mostly about me
there’s a long list of things we invented and other people did better
…but not as long as the list of things we stole and then other people did better
Hello people of the SGE Council! I am a completely and entirely responsible member of the council who did not forget to post on Sunday but here goes.
How was your week? As you can tell by my being here, I didn’t die in a car crash. I did however drive on a real highway and that totally wasn’t scary at all. Have any of you guys read The Cru…[Read more]
Congrats on not being killed in a car crash!
Also I’m going to the library to read the Crucibles first chance I get bc you told me not to
I mean. You can, but like— I hate all of the characters but you do you.
If you like Salem witch trials books I recommend How to Hang a Witch and The Life and Death Parade. (The second really isn’t a Salem witch trials book but it’s similar and I liked it.) Also the Near Witch is practically a religious experience so I recommend that one too.
Congrats on not dying! Merging and passing are some of my least favorite parts of driving, I actually go out of my way to avoid entering highways on certain entrance ramps because they are super short and don’t give much time for merging into traffic…
My week was good, the Clair de Lune performance that I was talking about last week was this mor…[Read more]
I haven’t really had to merge yet, we got on at an intersection. Thank you for the ringing words of encouragement.
The amount of technical terms in that paragraph made me realize how good you must be at the piano so I applaud that
without ever hearing you play. Good job!!
I have to say, I’m curious about this philosophy lecture. What’s it ab…[Read more]
Hm interesting! I don’t believe that I’ve ever driven on a highway that could be entered by an intersection.
Aww thank you!! I like to use fancy music language XD, can’t attest to whether I’m a good pianist though.
The lecture is about Søren Kierkegaard and Friedrich Nietzsche, I’m comparing their lives, philosophies, and beliefs (Kierkegaard is…[Read more]
It’s kinda a smaller highway, two lanes, lots of lights.
I’m sure your very good. Better than me at least.
Okay I do actually follow that explanation but I have never heard of either of them. It does sound very interesting even though my philosophy background is approximately zero.
I didn’t know that you play piano! Yay a fellow musician!! 😀
What do you like to play?
I hope its interesting, I have to memorize and present to my class on our last day of school as part of our assessment for the year…
I know how to play the piano and violin but I’m good at neither. I generally like to play pop covers cause they’re fairly simple but you can be a bit more expressive when you get good.
That sounds like… so much fun! Absolutely! Memorization!
Cool! I played violin in a (very beginner) youth orchestra for two years, but decided to stop so that I could start learning to play lever harp.
Pop covers are fun, I haven’t done many of them but I learned Never Enough on the piano and really enjoyed it.
I’m sure you’re a great musician!! Violin is hard to play, the only song I could probably…[Read more]
Oh my gosh you play the harp? *Respect levels go off charts with a dramatic crash sound*
XD In a way, playing a harp is like playing a synthesis of a piano and a violin since you’re plucking strings but don’t usually have to control the pitch yourself or use a bow. You also tune your own harp, like the violin, while you don’t typically tune your own piano…
taggles!!!!! Also, what are ads for, and can I submit one for the book I’m currently writing? I’m trying to get supporters wherever I an, so seen its published, I have people interested in reading 🙂
Ooh, may I be tagged?
And I believe they put that rule in place so that students wouldn’t be able to bribe their favorite (or least favorite) teachers into giving them good scores or whatnot on tests and such.
Taggles!!!! I think the rules there (petitioned for by the Evers maybe) who dislike bribing and think it’s dishonest. I also feel like Dovey would not want students giving gifts on a regular basis to everyone, but that’s a hard question. For the latter, I personally would give my least favorite teacher a candy cane from hansels haven to spite…[Read more]
My week’s been pretty tiring, but spring break starts after tomorrow so I’m definitely looking forward to that. I’ve been pretty tired lately, but I thankfully don’t have much homework today so I can rest.
The rule was probably established to prohibit bribing, especially in extremely important events like the Snow Ball or Trial by Tale. I’m going…[Read more]
*kicks door down* Guess who hasn’t been getting notifications?
They went full out magical girl with Sabera’s transformation I both love and hate it.
This week has been awful, but we’re not going to get into that
I am thrilled to have finally gotten Akechi on my team, the only problem is that now I don’t have any healers on my team (I will admit,…[Read more]
Sorry! Tags are always a little wonky. You are on this list, correct?
Well, you can have an air hug anyway.
I’m going to pretend I understood all those references. Some of the names sound familiar from things you’ve mentioned before but that’s it.
Hm. I don’t think I have anything against Beatrix, but at least you’re willing to spare Nic…[Read more]
I just had to get not one, but THREE shots in my arm. It hurt like hell and now my arms are all sore and stiff :/ </i!
Update: it’s now March 27! Which means that it’s been a year since the final episode of Steven Universe aired. And my heart is still broken. I feel like I should do something special to commemorate the occasion but the only thing I can come up with is binging Season 1B tonight, which I’ll probably do.
Hello people of the SGE council!
How is your week going?
Mine is all right. I drove on a real road for the first time yesterday and managed not to die, so… that’s fantastic. I was the only one in my history class in person, that was not fantastic. (My school let’s you decide whether to go to school in person or go to school virtually on any…[Read more]
I also share a birthday week with Einstein! My birthday was yesterday.
Also, R.I.P. Stephen Hawking. Today is the date of his death. He will forever be missed.
is that supposed to mean that im already on the tag list or-?
You’ve been added to the tag list I just didn’t want to be predictable and say “yes you’ve been added” cause I occasionally try not to be predictable.
happy birthday everyone!!!!!!!! Honestly harry potter gives me a lot of sge vibes………… a school where they teach magic, you get put into a house/school depending on your character, some kids know about it but the story follows a character who is new to that world…… I could probably find more similarities to point out
I definitely see it! The “new kid in a strange magic world” is definitely popular and very enjoyable. I would also say that Harry, like Sophie, wonders what side he should be on. Sophie debates good versus evil and Harry struggles with how much he is like Voldemort.
yep!! and they are both manipulated by an older evil character
Agreed! Ohhhh an Hermione kinda has an “Agatha, look, you’re actually beautiful” moment at the Yule Ball. I feel like that’s when everyone sits up and realizes Hermione’s pretty when she intends to be.
yep!! And how a foursome pairs off at the end and 2 of them are related lm.ao
My week has been good, I finished my acting classes (and nearly cried in the middle but like whatever) and I am trying to convince my friend to read SGE
Ohhh acting class. (I assume that you weren’t crying because your script called for it but if you can do that I think that’s amazing.) Do you learn a specific play or story, or just do you just learn techniques and the like?
You go! I am in several evangelical missions to get people to read good books. Mostly six of crows. I empathize with your crusade.
Head’s up y’all:
JUN REPLIED 2 HOURS, 53 MINUTES AGO
Yes, the reported user has been banned. These forums are meant for discussion of the School for Good & Evil book series and users making multiple off-topic posts, especially those that result in numerous reports will be banned. For all those involved in this incident, including those who issued…[Read more]
We saw it. We’ll continue doing council posts but we’ll try to make them handbook themed so we don’t annoy the actual handbook people. It’s not like we don’t talk about SGE at the council.
Please don’t feel like you need to strictly discuss the books, but we’ll center our posts around them, since that’s kinda why we’re all here. This seems…[Read more]
That’s fine with me. Jun also more recently commented saying that this forum can be used for Rping/fanfics as long as they’re sge related so I’d think that as long as the council posts are sge related (which they are) we should be fine 🙂
Not me completely forgetting to comment about my week *facepalms*
Congrats on driving on a real road!! When I was first learning how to drive my dad tried to get me to go 25mph but I couldn’t make it over 15mph XD.
My week is going alright, my school work load is a little lighter but we’re expected to start working on writing and memorizing a…[Read more]
Oh man there were several weeks where I had a max speed of 10 so— this is an improvement. I totally understand what you mean.
“Voluntold” is my new favorite word and I will attempt to use it in every possible situation from now on.
Aw poor puppy! I hope he/she feels better!
I have never tried vegan cheese crackers. I mean I don’t really…[Read more]
Oh yes do use it, I find it very handy although I sometimes get strange looks
not that that’s abnormal anyways though lol.
The crackers were really good : )
My birthday is this Friday, and my goats kidded!!!! I named them Iris, Hermes, and Hera. There are two more but I’m not gonna name them cause we’re gonna sell them.
Happy birthday! (You’re probably on for next week if we have your birthday, if not, should I add it?)
Cute names!! Goats are cute, I think. Are your goats cute?
Lol yeah they’re TINYYYY. I have Nigerians, so they are small enough to hold in one hand
I’m 11 and I’ve driven a car XD But I live in the middle of nowhere lol
I can get a permit at 15 and with parental permission license at 15 and a half.
But I didn’t want to/wasn’t allowed
Hello people of the SGE council!
(And apologies to the people of the Handbook Chat)
If you’d like to join, just ask!
I am no longer the substitute poster and am now officially here to stay for the next month. How about that!
So, how was your week? Mine has been filled with space news and statistics. For those of you that have heard me c…[Read more]
First! *comments to remind myself to comment later because I have no time at the moment*
This reminds me of the good old days where we used to try to beat Fudge to posting the update after the tag list and it’s a nice memory.
I know. Remember when she missed commenting and you held an investigation?
That was hilarious.
Do you remember when Salty posted? Or are you too new for that?
Here’s my comment. Finally.
I’m taking 4 ap’s (including stats) next year. I’m going to die.
Darn you spacex. Getting Erin’s hopes up, then quickly dashing them :((
Can I kill tedros-
If not, let me kill Nicola or Sader. Preferably Nicola.
ooo, thank you for letting me know about the lightning!
Do you want access to the advert form? I should be…[Read more]
Oh wait kinda—
Wait yeah she was like, insanely late or something and we all beat her.
No, I’m much to new for that.
Dang I’ll do three APs next year and I thought I was the dead one.
I know! They’re very cruel.
You can absolutely kill Tedros please don’t kill Nicola.
I just need the link I can’t get the link.
I literally h.ate her though.
Do you have an email I could send it to?
I just don’t want to put it here so everyone has access if that makes sense
Oh wait just put it at the bottom of our group doc that no one checks.
I don’t understandddddd why do people hate her?!?
This is great!! And actually I kinda want to kill all the good guys and the villains but mainly the good guys-
aHEM but if you’re only letting me pick one then TEDROS
Happy birthday to all who had birthdays!! Have a great week everyone 🤍
Sooo my week was good! The finale for wandavision came out two days ago so I watched it 🤩👏😌😔😁😁😥😐🤔🙄☺😯🙁 <- very mixed emotions about it. The hero I would kill…..uhh ummm Nicola, I dont think the story would have been GREATLY affected if she died cause like….all she really did was cause dRaMa…
Why does everyone hate Nicola I do not understand.
I’ve heard so much about WandaVision, what’s it about?
I do not hate Nicola I just feel she wasn’t exactly needed also Wandavision is about….well Wanda and Vision from the MCU and ummmm *tries not to spoil anything* theres some magicccc 👩😥😥😥😭😭😭🤘🖐👋🤟👨🤩😲😮👩🦱🧙♀️❤💫💓💖🕳💫🕳💫☮✳❎✅💠🔰‼⁉‼⁉‼⁉❓❓‼‼☢⚜❓🤨🤔🤨🤔😫 that is describing the show in…[Read more]
ok i feel like i need to answer this: probably ok nvrm i have no ide
I’d kill either Nicola or Hort.
I don’t hate Nicola, but like other people in this chain I don’t think she actually was all that important or needed in this story.
I don’t entirely hate Hort either, I’ve felt some pity for him about Sophie and all, but like…honestly that was kind of his entire character and he was kind of a Nice Guy TM and from…[Read more]
I’m really sorry, Twig, let us know if you need to talk about it or anything.
school is insane, also I have some residual fury over the non-death of tedros in OTK because i HATE THE MONARCHY AND PIERS MORGAN AND MONARCHIST-
calm down bel calm down
stuff has been going DOWN here in england which has made me hate the monarchy more than I did before
an incomplete list:
prince andrew at a pizza express in woking
megxit and the racist royals
i recently discovered that william and kate have THREE children which shook me to my core
that’s all thank you
i cant believe that a prince would have 2 work (bc i dont think royals usually have jobs) and this is just my opinion but racist people literally su.ck
also its kinda cool that u live in england bc, well, ive never been there and i live in amerca
it’s hilarious, newspapers are all talking about royal family members quitting their jobs
WHAT JOBS THEY JUST SIT AROUND AND STEAL MONEY FROM HARDWORKING PEOPLE
(i do respect meghan, but none of the others)
(and cattyrose is right, england is pathetic. it snowed today. IN APRIL.)
omgg ikr, it’s been snowing on and off all day, it went up to about 20 degrees at one point then started snowing again!
ugh and it’s so annoying how come we have to give them money THEY LITERALLY HAVE SO MUCH ALREADY
also call me Tash 🙂
wow. “ROYAL FAM QUITS JOBS THAT THEY DONT HAVE” ok maybe england isnt that great…but at least it snows where u r bc where i live it doesnt snow. at least it used 2, like, a bajillion yrs ago
I haven’t heard of most of these events aside from the Oprah interview with Harry and Meghan. (Oprah is like royalty here in America) Most of my respect for the Royal family involves their ability to look good in hats, so that shows what I know.
I didn’t actually watch the interview, but I heard a lot about it. And yeah, Oprah is a rather legendary figure here for… some reason.
okee 🙂 u guys can call me kahleela if u want 2 i kno its a little hard 2 remember
oooh, the queen looks great in hats
tash and kahleela, cool
(look up prince andrew + pizza express in woking if you want to know more)
we had a whole assembly about her in year 7, but now all I remember is that interview
the royal family is generally a disaster
but the hats are pretty good
tbh i’ve only got into royal politics and hating them during lockdown because i’ve been watching a lot of mock the week and 8 out of 10 cats
mock the week is brilliant–
among other things, I’ve started watching have I got news for you
unnewsrelated would i lie to you, not going out and QI i am obsessed with
I don’t like how they can get away with things that would imprison most other people, how they treat Meghan and how they treated Diana, and how much money is spent on them even though they barely bring anything into the country.
I can’t imagine my taxes going to people who get to spend their lives in a huge castle not having to work a day in their lives but stilling getting to live an extravagant life and cause scandals the whole country has to deal with it. That being said, how is the royal family racist in any way?
ok i know thats this question isnt 4 me but i will answer any way using the power of google
so, i googled it and saw the headline once i clicked on the link, which said “the british royal family has turned a blind eye 2 its racist past.” then in the article it says, “The Queen has never acknowledged the monarchy’s historical role in supporting the Black ***** trade.
Human rights activist Peter Tatchell said the system of an inherited…[Read more]
She’s not wrong, the royal family is founded on decades of colonisation and erasure of native people.
Also, Prince Andrew deserves to be imprisoned and I think it’s terrible that the royals are brushing over his past.
I mean I can understand not wanting to be blamed for your ancestors mistakes, and it’s not necessary for them to apologize for it. But they should acknowledge it, and definitely don’t do it themselves
But how was that their fault? If you were a wealthy white person in the south during that time period you would most likely have slaves, You are a product of your time.
it’s more that they’re refusing to apologise for their past even when they’ve probably benefited from it more than anyone else, plus the ‘product of their time’ excuse doesn’t work when they’ve said some very racist things to Meghan quite recently.
But why should they apologize for things they didn’t do? And refusing to offer protection for Megan’s son who isn’t even in the family isn’t racist.
I think this discussion is jinxed–
RIP Prince Philip duke of Edinburgh, died this morning
LILAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH WASSUP FAM
And like ehhh I feel bad for the queen and all that and you can’t deny the country’s loss………… but he was literally 99 and recentally had heart surgery so it was gonna happen sooner or later
I’m completely okay with going off subject!
Tedros isn’t really all that exciting. I think Agatha deserves better, but she seems to like him for some reason I don’t understand. He kinda likes to have his own plans and doesn’t include Agatha in the planning, probably mostly for plot reasons, but he could like… let her help. Because Agatha is cool.
yep, it’s probably best to change the subject here; we were getting dangerously close to politics
I wouldn’t say I hate Tedros, I am more disgusted by him. In the first 4/5 books I had pretty much the exact same view of him as Hester. A stupid arrogrant prat of a prince used to getting exactly what he wanted with no effort. But his character…[Read more]
woah, i never thought about it like that…and now that i think about it thats true lol. i was just like, ‘why does everyone say they would k.ill him?’ but i mean u guys r right so…
I didn’t mind Tedros in books 3-5 but then he started being really quite sexist and I didn’t like him.
(Also, my dislike of the system of a monarchy and therefore anyone perpetuating it.)
Hello! I’m new to this chat. What do you guys get up to around here?
Hey! Well, since activity posts are down, I decided “why not use the Ever Never Handbook as a substitute?” *hijab flip* and everyone has taken after me, cause I’m an icon 👑
But yeah, it’s a substitute for activity posts 😌
THAT’S NOT QUITE WHAT HAPPENED HAYCH—-
No, you suggested using the QFG chat, I suggested using this one *ponytail flick*
Greetings! Like they said, it’s a substitute for activity posts, but before it was just a chat for the Handbook that died a while ago.
Ugh I think my “pretend I’m a newbie” prank officially failed. Should have changed the avatar.
Next time! (Asdfghjhgf I actually thought you were serious oops)
It was supposed to be something normal enough that if you did look at the username, I am actually new to this chat, so you wouldn’t spoil it for everyone else, you know? But then if you assumed I was a newbie, I would get a cute welcome and you would lose.
Since you’re so invested in this now (even if you’re not you’re getting an update anyway)
It launched! Finally!!!
It did?! That is amazing! I’m so happy for you. XD What time did it launch?
And were there any maybe’s? Or did it go off without a hitch?
It may have bombed the landing. And by that I mean, exploded like a bomb. I neglected to mention that important bit of information.
It launched around 3:30 my time. You can watch the livestream if you want! It was a very impressive flight otherwise, not much different than sn8. But my fellow space geek and I got some emotional…[Read more]
Erin, that is a very important detail that you neglected to mention.
l.mao I mean you have every right to be angry. It’s been like more than a week.
I’m alright I suppose. Well *I shrug* at least I’m going to try and be.
How about you? How are you doing?
I thought I’d build excitement, you know.
It’s been more than a month, actually.
I’m fine, now that I’ve finished the torture of confidence intervals, meiosis, and the Boston Tea Party.
That’s one way to do it XD
Oh? Apush or just normal history?
AND WhaT! The boston tea party is so much fun
Hullo! So this is easier than going on the sge council doc. But Pink doesn’t really like doing council posts so I can take the first 2 weeks of this month. Or Angel can take this month or whatever sounds good. I think we need to as a council have a talk one of these days and figure out who is active/who won’t be posting, so the schedule will work.
That’s a good idea. I can just do the whole month, really, doesn’t bother me. But yeah, we do need a meeting.
Maybe just, tag everyone and make sure everyone responds? And then we’ll pretend to be professional, mock parliamentary procedures, or whatever else councils do.
Okay, so you’ll do this month, and Eliot will do the next?
Yep. I can message Forest and Eliot to make sure they are here for the meeting.
Poet’s left the site, so I think she may leave the council, and just basically we need to see who’s active.
Ya, she did.
Okay so I saw what you said on the doc about being the designated sub. I can be your backup if you need one (just in case you go on vacation or something).
I’m a little worried since no one else is active. I think that You, Angel and I are the active ones. Forest never comes on, Eliot hardly does, Poet left, and I don’t think Pink…[Read more]
Ahhh sorry (excuse the spoeing, I was looking at Trial stuff), I really need to be more active with that. I’m fine with posting whenever! Except for next week, since I’ll be extremely busy then.
It’s finnneee you should join us! I give Bailey space updates, we complain about AP classes, and ask “how are you” much more than one would expect.
XD and I’m mainly the one asking.
SPEAKING OF AP CLASSES. My Aplang teacher is being insulting. I wrote a good timed write essay and she wrote b*tchy comments. And THEN she found out that everyone cheated on it. But I DID NOT. So ma’am, I think I deserve an apology.
With that being said, how are both of you?
Ughhhh I hate that. When I was in PreCalc, my teacher spent like, a whole class making people feel guilty about cheating regardless of whether we were cheating or not.
In AP stats, we’ve apparently learned everything already? I didn’t think that was possible but I’m not complaining.
We read “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” in English,…[Read more]
*I waltz in days late to replying*
*I stare at you* Pfft it’s only because you give off this ‘cheater vibe’ y’know? A punk sorta one, flashing g.ang symbols and whatnot. I wouldn’t trust you at all! ;))
I’m jealous of your stats class.
Meanwhile I feel like I’ve gone back to elementary school level because we’ve only read one book this year and…[Read more]
*indignant face* excuse me.
Don’t be, we get made fun of in that class on a daily basis.
Ugh English classes should be good otherwise they’re torture. As a math/science kid I have plenty of reason to be tortured by English classes.
Catholic school! The land of “we-don’t-get-off-for-Chinese-(or-Jewish)-holidays!” Or any other religion,…[Read more]
Did I write this today?
I did. It doesn’t feel like I wrote this today. Apparently today has been a very long day.
I would not have guessed that. Are you at least an English kid in terms of writing stories and whatnot?
Oh. Huh. I mean it’s not really a religious thing (that I know of) but apparently Asha and a few others don’t have it either. So…[Read more]
Well, yeah, I think it’s more cultural and less religious, and we do have multiple students who live in China currently, but no, we instead get off for Super Bowl Monday.
I am Catholic, so I really don’t mind. It gets a little weird when people mention things like abortion rights because I tend to disagree with them on that—
I guess I also disag…[Read more]
Heya! Are you going to post council next Saturday/Sunday?
I just want to make sure since March is your territory and I posted two times in February since no one else was.
Oh yeah sure! I didn’t know we were commandeering the handbook chat so I didn’t know how to do the council updates, thanks so much for that. But now I can!
We need to make any new council posts in regards to the handbook. Like fact wise, questions, etc. I’m sure you saw, but check @/jun’s activity for more details.
Oh, okay. This might be a problem since I haven’t read the handbook but I’ll try to make it more relevant.
Have you read it? I mean if you give me like 4 handbook questions or facts I’ll include them.
Ya I have it and have read it.
We should prolly make the question of the week about it too.
I can give you those too.
Salutations! Just popping in to say hello and ask how everyone is (if you guys don’t mind)
Perfect thank you.
Hi Eliot!! Please do stick around.
I agree. I am very tired. Mostly of school.
Don’t feel bad! It’s really not that much work. But if you do want to pitch in and handbook-ify the posts and give me some tips that’s very awesome. Otherwise, just hang out and talk about your week! I usually try to comment on everyone’s so we have a little conversation so if you want to join, feel free.
You are the designated sufferer for Apr…[Read more]
(I have nothing to say but it’s the middle of the night, I was spoeing, and this was intriguing)
Erin check your notifs pleaseeee ( you got one on our prior post since there are spoes on this one :))
I found it I found it.
Also, can we get some handbook facts for Sunday? So I don’t have to… like, make them up?
I’m sorryyyyy I didn’t think you were still active l.mao since my last notif from you was 30 min ago. XD
Oooh sure! *Goes to get my handbook*
I apologize, there was a guinea pig running free that I needed to attend to.
YOU OWN A GUINEA PIG? WHAT’S HIS/HER NAME AND HOW OLD AND TELL ME ALL THE DETAILS S’IL VOUS PLAIT
HER NAME IS WINNIE SHES ALMOST A YEAR OLD AND IS VERY BIG FOR A GUINEA PIG SHES BLACK AND WHITE WITH ONE HALF-PINK EAR AND SCREAMS FOR SALAD EVERY AFTERNOON
Here’s the sge question (handbook related). I’ll do the fact tomorrow because I’m too exhausted to think at the moment:
In the handbook it says: Gifts to teachers are prohibited (Dean Sophie does not count as a teacher).
Why do you think this rule was put into place? Did the evers or the nevers cause it?
A follow-up to the prior question. If you…[Read more]
*Comes walking in with the sge handbook fact a couple of days later*
Fun fact time! I’m sure that many of you already know this if you own the handbook, but on page 261 of the handbook at the roundtable, there is a spelling error. Hester is spelled as “Ester.” When the Handbook first came out, there were many posts made by eagle-eyed fans spotting…[Read more]
Any ideas for fun facts? Also, I think I’m having trouble finding the events happening this week (if there are any- is there another doc I’m missing?) Other than that, I have everything assembled.
Welcome to the Tidal Pool!
If you haven’t already, go check out the rules in the picnic post. It should also be in your mentions. When you enter, please let everyone know, and again for when you leave that way everyone knows who could potentially be attacking them. (Think this kills your element of surprise? Hope you get lucky! Invisibility is a p…[Read more]
*I shoot beams of light into Outdoorpoet’s eyes, temporarily blinding them, and use the advantage to run up behind them*
(My pronouns are she/her. What are yours?)
*I let light pass through me so that I’m not visible, (like a Vanisher) and lunge at Outdoorpoet without being seen, stretching my hand toward *insert pronoun* flag*
Ah I know i”m rather late but she/her
*I hear your hand coming and the wind charges into you, splaying you onto the ground. I **** my ears to make sure I have YOU down, and then I sit on your belly before hovering in the air, blowing water from a nearby puddle onto you so that I can see you somewhat*
You are pinnnedddd
I love pinning peoples
*I start writing down a command on paper while Sandol is going for Poet’s flag.*
*I yell:* Please stand in place for at least twenty seconds!
*I appear here and fight back using my equally incredibly awesome talent*
This battle is full of specifics.
*I summon a giant wave to come at you*
I cry out: Defend yourself, mere mortal! Cower against the waveeeeee
*I start to dart away from the wave, but am too slow, getting drenched.*
*My hair slithers across the floor until circling Bailey’s foot, at which point I yank her off her feet.*
*I hit the floor and slice your hair with my dagger from my boot. I sing a tune, and a bunch of crows appears, dive-bombing your head*
*Shrieking, I try to bat the crows away, to no avail. Instead, I wrap a length of hair around each one, spin them all around really fast, and then yeet each one into the distance really fast, where they will be too dizzy to return*
(In a Gru voice from Despicable Me) My turn.
*I grab an acorn cap from the forest floor and whistle sharply using it,…[Read more]
Do our original comments count? About talents, in this fight?
If not, I don’t think you can get me out yet XD
*I summon wind, whipping the wasps back at you. *
*I also cast a spell and vines wrap your wrists together.*
I think Angel was just making a grab for the flag, you are defending.
Welcome to the Indigo Underbrush and the Echo Field!
If you haven’t already, go check out the rules in the picnic post. It should also be in your mentions. When you enter, please let everyone know, and again for when you leave that way everyone knows who could potentially be attacking them. (Think this kills your element of surprise?

*I enter the Indigo Underbrush and wait silently for another competitor to attack*
I’m creeped out by the notif that brought me here:

Welcome to the Pumpkin Patch

When you enter, please let everyone know, and again for when you leave that way everyone knows who could potentially be attacking them. (Think this kills your element of surprise? Hope you get lucky!

*I enter the pumpkin patch* for anyone who’s here, I’m Elvia and my pronouns are she/her *i take up a place behind a large pumpkin*
(I am not currently in the pumpkin patch, but I am commenting for notifications).
Y’all do know you don’t have to ask someone’s permission to fight them and can just attack, right? I was not expecting this level of civility in a fight.
(I have re-entered the pumpkin patch from the pine Glen)
*I get up from the ground and blast a current of water in poets direction, hitting her so hard from the back she falls on to her face. *
*I shake the water off myself and stand up. I dig a hole in the ground with a stick, making it wider with my finger glow. I send a current of water underground , ripping up the ground beneath Poet and sending her crashing into the muddy water the ground. The water pulls up trees from their roots and pushes them onto Poet*
Yello I’m Sandol, pronouns she/her.
*I sneak into the Pumpkin Patch and aim beams of light at @princezzdot to trap her in a cage made of laser beams that completely surrounds her on all sides*
*I from a cocoon of water around myself and walk through the laser beams*
Wait, I just saw Outdoorpoet’s comment, so does that mean this match is over?
Post just made their first move towards PrincezzDot’s flag, both are still in the game.
Also, Sandol, if you haven’t checked out the picnic post recently i suggest you do.
WE had a three comment battle though, so doesn’t that mean since I got it, they’re out?
Ahh that makes more sense
So what determines when a defense isn’t enough for me to break through?
I mean. That’s kind of the difficult part. I would say something that stops you from stealing your flag, like taking it back or moving their foot, and then either sprinting away to another area of the forest, morgrifying and getting away, or counter attacking with something that would turn the tide in their favor, like, I don’t know, att…[Read more]
Omg you and Asha-
Alright. Sorry for all ze questions. So I have to attack Zeezee more until we’re essentially at a point where I arise victorious as a clear winner of the three comment rule? *Sorry we’ve had a three trial long thing and I need to beat them-*
Alrighty. *Smiles and begins the cycle again, knocking Zeze to the ground, the wind swirilnig protectively around me, picking up leaves and sheilding me from Sandol’s rays, the water still smoking the forcefield she had made*
*The wind pushes the two apart, holding both down, hands pinned*
Yeh, I am.
*The wind pushes the water back with renewed force, and I pull my flag back inside, knocking you over again, and pushing the water as far away from you as possible, drying it from your face, your lips, and anywhere around you, and pulling your cloak off into the night*
*I push the water away, and pull cold water, soothing the burns, and pulling the sopping wet flag and tucking it away again*
*I turn to you, and knock you over, sending heavy things on top of you, and ensnaring you in a tonrnado that holds you encased, unable to see outside*
*I creep closer*
*I pull my shirt over my nose and mouth with my eyes scrunched shut as I feel around the tornado, I form a cocoon of water around myself and open my eyes, able to breathe again*
*I push the cocoon out of the tornado, landing on a tree and letting the water crash over you. While, you’re down I throw my dagger at you, hitting your pocket and i…[Read more]
Yeah sure, until Poet comes back at least.
(Or we can just fight here cause I don’t want to go looking for the sleeping willows post)
Either way is fine, just make your decision fast.
*I tap an imaginary watch and pace in front of the willows*
*I sigh and reach for your flag and start this cycle all over, the wind ruffling through my hair, too close for your water to ********* or knock me backwards*
*I step back again and again until we’re about a hundred feet away, then I swirl the wind around you, and hide, still protecting myself carefully*
*I rise above the wind on a wave. I send water all throughout the area ripping up trees and plants until I find Poet and pummel her with currents(
*I push the currents away in a battle of elements, the water rising up my winded dome and protecting it from any impact you could send my way*
*I add another layer of force and send a ripple of wind careening across the ground, splaying you flat on your back, and tickling for your flag*
*I push against the wind, rising again on a current. The current rushes toward you with me riding it, as I reach out, grabbing your flag*
*I push your hand away*
The whole point of this wind current is you can’t just push against it and get through that easily, you have to think about HOW.
*I slam you backwards against the ground, cracking your head against a rock, and pushing any sources of water far away from you*
*I lean down, stealing all the breath from your lungs, knocking you…[Read more]
Did you tag me somewhere Erin? I saw you did, but when I clicked on the notification it just took me to my mentions
It was because you got a prize, on the Indigo Brush thing i think?
I feel like we should team up when you come back-
NOw that our rivalry is settled-
Yeah I guess it’s even now lol. We can plot on discord. 5 am tomorrow then? If you’re not up it’s fine
I mean it will be 2 am for me so I probably won’t be up either so scratch that
hello, anyone want to fight?
*gets my dagger ready and picks up some pointy sticks*
*I roll to the side as I dodge Tiger Deliah, and hurl the pointy stick in front at you then explode it. After that, I creep up behind you as I explode the pumpkins near you which forces you to retreat to the corner. I finally then use my explosive powers to propel me forward fast as I jump to sn.atch your flag*
*I throw my dagger at Delilahs paw stabbing it and making her hand useless when she turns back*
*I stab my dagger into your leg and push you off of me. I kick you in the stomach against a tree while I go for your flag*
*I enter the area*
I go to one of the trees, rip a large branch and charge at Jay with it
(Gonna say no, that sticking you in a current whirlpool type thing counts as a defense.)
*it’s sunset, and you’re standing just outside the Blue Forest. There’s a lovely set of sleeping bags, picnic blankets, and food set out in the clearing*
Welcome, everyone, the 5th biannual Trial by Tale, Winter 2021!!
Do not refer to me as the unicorn queen, I have a full title which has something to do with Candyland
*I walk up to the ever team (my team) first and shake each of their hands.*
I know that we will fight our hardest and do our best to win against those darn evil nevers.
*Next I walk up to the nevers and shake each of their hands*
I know we are fighting on the opposite side, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t respect each other. Especially because…[Read more]
Since Cats has started trapping fairly early, I am also giving out bonus prizes! The first one goes to…
You won a Titanium shield! Very handy. Can probably block dagger strikes fairly easily, not too heavy, and if you use it, you earn 2 points!
*enters the carnivorous shrubs and cyan caves*
And is mogrification allowed?
Another prize goes to @pastelmaddiearts !!
You win a single-use teleportation program! *hands you a small rock* just drop it and imagine where you’d like to go. You get 2 points if you use it.
My mentions are glitching help you mentioned me but I can’t see it-
*more wheel noises*
The wheel has chosen @teamjoanne to win a healing potion! Single use, restores you to full health, curing cuts, bruises, broken bones, 2 points when you use it.
Ya, you’re in already Delilah
It was like 9:45 mst that you could re-join.
No one is using their bonuses so my only solution is to give out more. *spins wheel, which is actually just a random number generator* @princezzdot ! You win a smoke bomb! Great for obscuring your escape or whatever else and you get two points for using it.
*I do the same, grinning at Zeze and starting a tornado-like thing around myself, knocking Lilah over, and straying a fair distance away and beginning the battle cycle*
I AM the gust of wind, sillies! *Turns into a flea and bites @outdoorpoet*
*I swat the flea away, messaging the bite and stirring up the wind again*
Can we finish the fight?
*I look at you and then send the wind hurling over to you, pinning you to the ground*
*I hurl my dagger and impale your flag onto the ground*
*I whip around the trees as wind. My voice seems to come from all around* Wait, can we just outright drop the flags? Or do we need to do something else?
Well there is a three comment rule, so you can’t take my flag until the third comment.
Uhhh no, but we can consider that your first comment, then Delilah can reply and then you can steal it if she hasn’t defended.
*I hand you back your flag and restart the battle thingie* Sorry for hte confuzzlement-
*I swirl the wind around me protectively and knock you over, pushing you into the ground and stealing your breath, standing a ways away*
I love how i still havent revealed a whole elemenet of my talent-
I am mean so-
*I slam all of the chickadees to the ground, breaking all of their wings, (and your arms for when you return to human form) and roll them over each other, over and over, knocking each of them out*
Question: do you still make human sounds when you transform, or is it only the illusion sightwise?
(If you’re restarting why don’t you go somewhere there aren’t innocent bystanders to step on. Cats would love it if you showed up in the carnivorous shrubs I’m sure.)
*tic tic tic tic tic tic tic*
Another prize, this one to @outdoorpoet !
(It’s weird that I keep getting people that are actually active.)
You win a spear! I don’t know what you’ll use it for but if you do, you get 2 points!
I’m also going to step in here and say no invisible (or invincible) lions or summoning gorgons or summoning anything. I think the shifting into a breeze or a water current is okay as long as it’s small, because if she just turned into animals it’d be the same as mogrifying.
And wind, and water..
When you shapeshift you can’t turn into in-animate objects like that, and it’s not fair for you to have every talent.
Oops above comment in the wrong spot. Also, did either of you tag me in a comment somewhere?
Oddly enough, I did not get that notification. Just one from PrincezzDot and Delilah
Do you want to go to a different post and fight?
Other than the clearing
This is late, but the results are in! The trial by tale is complete, and all that is left to do is announce the winners…
In third place, with 2 points, is @sandol for the Evers!
In second place, with 5 points, is @princezzdot for the Nevers!
And, in first, with 12 points is @outdoorpoet !!!
For only the fifth time in a row, the Nevers…[Read more]
oooh nice! Congrats to all the winners and everyone who participated!
*makes a cameo wearing a long blue dress because fudge it, I’m here for just this comment, no I’m not back this just makes me super happy*
*My hair is done up with what look like dripping crystals, though are really just enchanted droplets of water, though the strands are off my neck so I could fight somebody, need be*
*the dress- it’s long goes…[Read more]
Wow thank you! And congrats Poet and Sandol! Yeah this is a month late- haha.
*im wearing a funeral outfit since I just got back from mourning the fantasy casting forum*
It was an honor being your ally and accompanying you in murdering people, Poet.
Eliminated, didn’t die. And I got you out in 2019 so whatever. And I actually killed you. So there.
