what happens if I try to post?

The dojo really was the spine of this place.  But it was only as strong as the people who posted new threads in it.  Once we got down to 2-3 roleplays at a time, I kinda started expecting this.  Maybe at some time down the road you can re-open this forum, or I might find the motivation to start my own or something, but for now I think this is for the best.  It was a good run, but I think that, like some of the great unfinished roleplays of my time, we should lay this forum to rest.  

I've been thinking about re-writing atu or at least writing out the ending when I get some free time.  I think winter break sounds like a good time to crack open my writing chest again

I always knew the forum would come to an end, I just didn't think I'd be around to see it.  NeoAnime made me the writer that I am today.  It's as simple as that.  I was just a mathelete before this forum.  Now... well... I can write too!  (I still suck at conclusions though, NA never taught me that)

But more important than the experience was the community.  The only user on this forum that I've ever physically met is Vera, but I feel like I actually know alot of people here.  This forum was my escape, my friends and family away from my actual friends and family.  I only use aim now to talk to people from here.

I'm going to miss this place.  Checking this forum will be a hard habit to break.  If you guys want to contact me, my email and aim are posted on my profile

the "remember me" checkbox is very useful for that.  other than that, it's muscle memory

Nova!!!  It's been a long time, my friend.  Like, I can't remember when you left long.  But you've returned, and that's cool.

What Kadri said about things being slow around here goes tripple for the dojo (compared to when you were around before).  But we have survived, sort of.  If you do decide to come back to roleplaying... I wish you luck.  Lots and lots of luck.

p.s: if duama doesn't come around to re-initiating you in a week, I'll take the baka mallet and do the honors myself, if nobody objects

(this post isn't in cronological sequence with the rest of the story, but I'm bored)

Jackson woke up in a small, white cloth tent.  His torso and forehead were wrapped in bandages, and his arm was in a sling.  He sat up slowly; body aching with every inch that it rose.  He crawled out of the tent and stood outside.  Jackson was in a forest, standing in grass.  The sun was setting.  Sanders and Gardevior were kneeling near another tent treating Heatran's injuries. 
"Its good to see you're up and moving.  I was starting to worry," Sanders said.
"How long was I out?" Jackson asked.
"Twelve hours.  Gave us quite a scare, but Heatran knew you'd wake up."  Sanders said.  Jackson nodded.  After a pause he asked,
"Where's Cloud?"  Sanders, Gardevior, and Heatran looked down.
"He's gone," Heatran mumbled.  Jackson collapsed.  Alakazam and Gardevior rushed over to him, but were pushed away.  Jackson stood up again and walked deeper into the forest. 
"Let him go," Sanders said.  Jackson stumbled through the trees at first, but he kept moving.  He walked faster and faster, until he was running.  Jackson ran to the edge of a forest, through the beach beyond, and stopped at the water.  His feet sank into the sand as he looked out at the horizon.  After a while, Jackson's body began radidiating with heat energy.  He exploded with energy, shooting magma in every direction.  

Jackson returned to the campsite some hours later.  It was dark.  Sanders sat at a fire, waiting.  
"We need to discuss our next move," Sanders said.  
"Next move?  I failed, Sanders.  Defeating James was my responsibility, and now Cloud's gone.  There's nothing else," Jackson said.
"You're too hard on yourself.  James was OUR responsibility, as a group.  And he still is," Sanders said.
"What do you have in mind?"
"I think we should enlist the help of Raikou's group."
"Raikou's group?  You think they'll really be able to pull it off?  You saw them last time!" Jackson shouted.
"That was weeks ago.  It only took them a short while to learn syncronization.  Their potential is limitless, they're probably much stronger now," Sanders said.
"I'm not buying it.  James is too strong.  And now he has Latios' power.  Not to mention he's only one more plate and a flute away from calling Arceus."
"Two more plates," Sanders corrected him.  He reached into his pack and uncovered a brown stone.
"You stole the rock plate?" Jackson asked.
"While you were fighting him.  It was a precaution, just in case you lost and he finds the Lightning Plate and Azure Flute while we're looking for Raikou's team.  That and, with this, your Stone Edge might be strong enough to take him down."  Sanders said.
"Well, thanks for giving me a choice in the matter.  Now he's going to be coming after us.  We have to find team Raikou before James finds us.  Where do we start?" Jackson smirked.  
"The same way we start every time.  We go to the market."

Camping until saturday.  See y'all when I get back

Jackson woke up with the sunrise that morning.  He walked outside his tent and gazed out at the world beyond the mountain.  Heatran was awake as well, but still pretended to sleep.  The roar of Cloud's snoring echoed from his tent.  As the sun lifted off the horizon line in the east James approached the campsite.
"I never saw you as the type who watches sunrises," James said.  He stopped walking twenty paces from Jackson.
"I never was.  My power has only ever caused destruction; fires and ruin.  I've never taken the time to admire the natural side of the world," Jackson answered.
"I understand.  When a man see's his end he begins to reflect on his life.  You quite obviously know why I've come down here," James said.
"Yes.  The charade is over, old man, it's high time we see if your power is really all it's cracked up to be."Jackson and James stood face to face.  Jackson transformed first, shouting the words "I will defeat you" instead of his normal syncro phrase.  His skin turned dark red and formed the usual metal plates and face mask.  Heat energy radiated from his body.  Heatran stood up and released the same energy, and the dry heat of their power filled the air.  James transformed with a flash of electricity.  His arms and torso were covered with Raikou's stripes.  His face formed the same forehead plate and fangs, and the purple cloud cape rolled down his back.  James crouched down to all fours and lunged forward with extreemspeed.  He ran past Jackson and Heatran, turned, and attacked with a discharge field from behind.  Jackson and Heatran were caught in the blast and knocked backwards, but were quick to retaliate.  Jackson ran forward head first, while Heatran created a Lava Plume behind him.  James stomped his foot into the ground and created an earthquake underneith Jackson and Heatran, and then raised his head and countered the lava wave with his Hydro Pump.  James walked towards Jackson, who had fallen into the earthquake.  He held out his hand and gathered energy for his Zap Cannon.
"Shame this had to end so quickly.  I thought you would be stronger," James said.  Then James was struck with a purple wave of energy from the side that knocked him onto the broken ground.  Cloud and Latios were outside their tent, fully syncronized.
"How dare you get knocked down so easily Jackson!  Don't tell me you're actually that weak!" Cloud exclaimed.  Jackson stood up and dusted himself off.  
"Of course not.  I was setting him up for you.  I know I can't win this alone." Jackson said sternly.  Cloud nodded.
"Are you two done yet?  So you got a cheap shot in, big-" James was cut off by an explosion underneith him; Heatran's earth power.  James was flung into the air, where Cloud and Latios both attacked with simultaneous Zen Headbuts.  James fell backwards to the ground.  Jackson used Cloud's attack to charge forward.  As James hit the ground, Jackson lunged forward and crushed him with Stone Edge.  James was burried by the loose rock of the cliff.  Jackson retreated a few steps.
"There's no way it was that easy," Cloud said.  Latios nodded.  After a few moments James launched out of the rubble, displaying the fire and ice wings he inherited from Moltres and Articuno.  He burst forward with Extreemspeed and latched onto Cloud's shoulder with Crunch.  Latios tried to attack with Dragon Pulse, but was interrupted by Jame's discharge attack.  James let go of his bite and drilled Cloud into the earth with a point-blank Ice Beam.  Jackson and Heatran retaliated with their signature Double Heatwave.  Cloud and Latios regrouped and followed up the attack with a combined Psychic Dragon Pulse.  James guarded himself from the hits and minimized the damage.  Now back on the ground, James created another earthquake.  Cloud and Latios dashed forward in the air, but James was already creating another Zap Cannon aimed at Jackson.  Cloud saw this and, as James fired, intercepted the full force of the electrical blast.  Latios saw his partner flop onto the ground after the attack and turned to help him, but as he turned Latios was struck by James' Hyper Beam.  Jackson and Heatran climbed out of the earthquake's rubble to see their teammates sprawled across the ground, their syncronization faded.  
"CLOUD!  Get up kid!" Jackson yelled.  He ran forward and unleashed his Magma Storm attack around James.  James avoided the storm with his speed and blasted Jackson with Hydro Pump at close range.  Then he turned his attention to Latios.  He lifted the dragon by the neck and began draining its energy.  Cloud rose to his feet and attempted to punch James, but the boy was blasted by James' Zap Cannon before he could connect.  Cloud was flung from the cliff, and Latios disapeared almost simultaneously.  James' wings shrank and turned to resemble Latios', and he developed the same blue visor with ears and red triangle that Cloud recieved.  Jackson watched in horror, unable to move, as James walked towards him.
"You guys gave me quite a run there.  I must say I'm impressed with your teamwork.  And that Stone Edge attack; Sanders must've figured it out.  That's the only logical explination," James said.  
"You monster!  You'll pay for this!" Jackson cried.  He gathered all of the energy he had left, and once James got close, unleashed it all in an erruption attack that consumed the battlefield.  When the fire from the erruption subsided, Jackson and Heatran were nowhere to be seen.  Only James was left on the battlefield, guarded by Latios' protect.

I saw Horrible Bosses the other week, and that was fantastic.  It rivaled the Hangover in my mind.  Also, Rubber was the most ingenously rediculous movie I've seen in a long time.  If you haven't seen it, it's on the Netflix instant watch under foreign or comedy.  (and no, it's not about condoms.  its about a car tire)

I don't really think the deadline was the problem, but I'm not going to push the conversation any farther.  I agreed to keep my characters up as long as I could so, I only have one question:  What are we waiting for?
12  The Dojo / OOC Threads / Re: Episodes from the Dark Tournament: Underdog Team Gushiken on: July 11, 2011, 09:33:41 pm
Hey guys.  I know that I'm the one who posted this up here, but now that we're this far into the summer I don't think I'll be able to start it.  If you guys come together and decide you want to role play this, be my guests
13  Non-Anime Discussion / Serious Discussion & Debate / Re: the virginity question on: July 09, 2011, 11:00:14 pm
I personally believe that 16 is the minimum age where having sex becomes acceptable.  The people who I knew who lost theirs before that were whores, honestly.  Funny part was that half of them knew it and were ok with it.  Most of the ones I knew who lost it at 16 were in relationships at the time, so it was "ok."  But then most of those relationships fell apart and the partners can't ever get back to square one, if that makes sense.  Maybe 18 is a more appropriate time to do it, maybe it is 25 or whenever you get married, I'm not sure when the best time would be.  But in all honesty, if you're with someone who you really care about and who cares about you, nobody should be able to tell you when you can lose your v-card.
14  The Dojo / OOC Threads / Re: A Tale Untold (pokemon rp) on: July 05, 2011, 12:20:21 am
I agree with Kadri: this rp has been dying for a long time now.  But we've all kept the defibulators handy for our own reasons.  I understand that this story has become the last hurrah for some of us, and if we decide to revive it again I will keep up my characters for as long as possible.  Personally, roleplaying just isn't as fun as it used to be for me.  Maybe I've outgrown it, maybe it just feels like work, I don't know.  But I vote we let it go this time.  We as a group don't post fequently enough to build any kind of momentum, and our personal and small group scheming has divided the roleplayers still standing.  We can't keep forcing ourselves to finish this rp.

15  Non-Anime Discussion / General Discussion / Happy Birthday Onyx! on: July 03, 2011, 09:08:17 pm
Are we really so stagnant around here that we can't recognize a birthday?  Seriously, I'm never the first one to notice.  Happy Birthday Onyx!  We miss you in the dojo
