Any "Friends"?
Hey Everyone. I've been around for while and I've seen a lot on these sorts of sites; here and there. I'm thinking about getting more involved but I don't really "know" anyone. So I was just wondering if anyone else here was in the same position.

Does anyone here know someone on this site (IRL or otherwise as long as they come here) that they consider a friend? Would they consider you the same way? Is it any If it's not much trouble can you say how you two (or more) met and became friends? What do you have in common with one another? (Besides the obvious mutual interest.)

If you don't have any friends I'm going to start another thread that's fairly straight forward for the purposes of getting to know everyone.
I've made several good friends on this site, though I've never met them IRL due to living too far away. I'll break this into parts in order to keep it short and less sappy. :P

Vanndril, Henry-killenger, RebKMG (Mugi), Fossilbrand

Would they consider you the same way?
Yes.

Vanndril and I met on Hypnochan, and the rest of us met here. There were other circumstances, sure, but they mostly just involved talking and bonding. :P

What do you have in common with one another? (Besides the obvious mutual interest.)
Oh... things. Personal things. :P
Also, we have similar humors. And we sometimes keep each other balanced.

Of course, there are plenty of friendly acquaintances I've made here, as well.
Friends? A good amount.

I met Mindwipe on the ashen plains, surrounded by the sex demons of Nit'cthyla. Oh a mighty race they were, but with my chin and Mindwipe's rod of power, we slew them forthwith. Oh the succubus queen thought she stood a chance, they all did. They came at us (in more ways than one) with numbers nigh-insurmountable, but wielding the holy sword 'Fossilbrand'. A powerful blade, though possessed of a cruel humor. It was carved from the bones of a Whorasaurus Rex millions of years ago and passed down in the centuries since.
Of course, Mindwipe wasn't alone. He rode his companion of indeterminate origin, the great Mugi. Oh how they looked, striding across the white and red stained fields. As for Vanndril... Well, who do you think sicced those sex demons on us in the first place? So yeah, there's that.

I'm not on the list?! Lol we had better start bonding
I stalked Vanndril and Mindwipe on Hypnochan, actually. During the days when I was actually underage and shouldn't have even been on there.

I like henry because we often discuss our Vanndril-Mindwipe yaoi fantasies between each other.

They're only fantasies until I get the rope ;)

And this.
The number of people who ship Vanndril x Mindwipe is... interesting.

I ship it.
I am just crazy and these images are the most stable and well sensed fantasies I've had in my life.
Those who mostly lurk are friends with none and all... for we listen but are seldom heard, watch but are seldom noticed, learn but are seldom taught, know but are seldom known ourselves...

...I think I just wore out the word "seldom" for the next month or so...
It usually takes a while for me to open up to people, but I will say that I am comfortable here.
Seeing Ogodei-Khan on here was a nice surprise. Vanndril seems quite affable as well.
I have no friends
I'm too edgy and emo for you nerds.

You sound like someone I'd have much in common with but would still want to avoid. That's all IRL, however; online I'm reasonably eager to know more about you.
hello new kid! if your thread out performs mine I will kill you.

ha ha just kidding but seriously im watching you.

ok seriously seriously welcome to the site! im Nadia, mistress of rp and queen of seduction. your welcome to ask for an rp any time.

There we go. I fixed that one for ya.

Just use your chintacles, Chintacles. They're long enough.

Henry-killenger said:

And who was the one who thanked me the very next day for that succulent feast, huh? Oh, that's right, you! By the way, you have a very interesting definition of "slew". Everyone should know what really happened to the sex demons...

RebKMG said:

You can stalk us all you want. ;)

I love you, sometimes. :P

Why thank you.
Okay, my reaction post out of the way, let's get to the topic at hand, shall we?

I think I'll do the same as Mindwipe, and break it into parts. Otherwise (and possibly regardless) this will quickly turn into a behemoth of a post.

Plenty of people. Mindwipe, Lunakiri, Henry-killenger (Cthulhu), RebKMG (Mugi), Fossilbrand, Stem_Cell, Kinkyloli, etc. I'm sure that most of them would say the same about me, yes.

LillyTank said:

Well...

I met Mindwipe on Hypnochan. I was pushing the smudge method to manipping empty eyes like a preacher would preach or a salesman would convince a buyer. It caught his interest, and he basically became my apprentice for a short while, until he got to the point where he was about as good as me. Maybe not as quick, but his eye for detail gives him a killer accuracy for cleanly emptying eyes.

Lunakiri, if I recall, I met on the old booru site. Her art style at the time, while still unrefined, had a charming, unique quality to it, and I saw potential in her work (which she argued wasn't there, that pessimist). Anyway, she was selling super-cheap commissions (still is, as far as I'm aware), and I bought a few from her. We just sort of hit it off after some time.

Henry I met here. I actually saw someone in FFXIV with the same name, and inquired him, here, if he was the one I saw (although I knew the chances were slim). It wasn't, but we ended holding a small conversation. Later on, in Nadia's crazily-large introduction thread (unofficially titled Club Nadia), we ended up chatting more, as a group, and that deepened a sort of comradery we all had.

I'd go on, but the story for the rest of them are largely the same. We met on this or a similar site, ended up just sort of chatting for whatever random reason, and hit it off. I'm a generally good fellow, and I'd like to think I'm friendly with just about everyone I meet, here or otherwise. I have more friendly acquaintances than I can count, too, so my I seem to be on the right track with that.

As for your question about what we have in common? Well, as a whole group, not much. We just get along well.

All it takes is some conversation. If you want to make some pals here, all you have to do is find an excuse to talk and do so. The rest comes naturally.
I feels weird to stay I'd consider people around here friends, despite having met them on Hypnochan, and known them there as mostly under a different name all together and mostly lurking. ^^;

Yay, got mentioned!

Well, I consider most people I've talked to here as "friends", since you guys are all an awesome bunch. It's surprising how this is a friendlier forum than many others, considering the subject matter largely revolves around fapping.

Also, I do like Mindwipe because he's a nice fella. But I troll him enough so that he hates me. You can't blame me, Mindwipe's so cute to troll!

I don't hate you. But, oh my god, you, Mugi, and Henry are all on the "Mindwipe is cute when you mess with him" thing. When did I become cute to so many people? >.<

Club Nadia, I'd assume. Your less serious self showed there in spades.

Stem_Cell said:

Not a popularity contest! :P I literally just mentioned a few names off the top of my head at ungodly hours of the morning. I'm sure I forgot quite a few people, like Petal. I know there are others, but the names aren't coming to me...

I love you for this. So much. XD
I kept my list to just those I've spoken extensively with in private.
Although I gave a joking answer I can't really say who my friends are on here. Is just too many to name and some people are only on the chat while some are on here. But I'm always willing to converse with people. I'm always up learning and making new friends. I'm also more willing to try new things than when I was younger.
Right more on topic, I would say that if we talked and we poked fun at each other then we're cool. Or if Stem_Cell gives you a really cool collar then you're good.

YOU ONLY LIKE ME FOR MY MANIPS

You would actively avoid me IRL? ;-;

Well I wouldn't blame you since I often do find myself making people avoid me as much as possible simply because social interaction is an annoyance for me, I am introverted to the max.
I prefer my online life, the real me exists on the internet.

As for getting to know me:
-My favourite past times are drawing, video games, and anime.
-My favourite anime is Madoka Magica, Kyouko is mein waifu
-My favourite games are TF2 and Portal 2
-If I act like I am a sarcastic narcissistic asshole it means I'm comfortable with you and see you as a good friend
-I prefer when people brutally critique my original content or art rather than praise it so I can improve

Thats it, you know everything about me. Use this knowledge wisely and godspeed.

Ahhh... Maybe I shouldn't have said that. To be honest, our personalities sound pretty similar IRL. Except in my case, I tend to come across as slow to most people due to my depression.

I've been meaning to watch Madoka Magica. I here it's like no other.

Also you're one of my favorite manippers. In fact I consider you to be in the top 5 of the imaginary ranking system I've just made up...
YEAH, SCORE BOARD, WHATS YA GOT OTHER MANIPPERS?
Also thanks c:

Anyway Madoka is totally worth a watch, it's the only show that made me feel really sad next to steins;gate, which surprised me because I have very little empathy and I'm a sadistic little bastard so getting emotional over a bunch of little girls was a bit of a shocker. Plus I'm going to see the third movie in a local theatre on sunday. god I love madoka

Is it weird that I watched Madoka, kinda liked it, but still don't know what the hype is about?

It's cuz when it first came out everyone expected a bland, generic magical girl show but it took a very dark turn and broke away from a bunch of the tropes basically proving that any genre is capable of being great. I came into it hoping to watch something stupid and mindless with a bunch of flat characters and was then given characters with depth and a story that was actually interesting. It's not everyone's thing and if you already know its going to be something dark its going to lose a lot of what it makes it good but still a great show regardless.

Different people like different things. You can't expect to touch everyone with one hand.
(That sounded way weirder than I meant it too... -I kid, it really didn't-)

I really wish manipping did incite such enthusiasm around here. No offense to anyone, because everyone's great in their own way but very few people put the level of effort into their manips that you and a few others do. I think I might be one of the few people out there that sees it as an art form.

Some people just want to make something quick to get off to so you can't blame them there. Plus skill level is HUGE, I know a lot about digital art programs and PS so I can get around it really easily and so less effort is needed compared to someone who knows little about art programs.
I think most people are just to scared to experiment in their manips which leads to little innovation or creativity and we end up with a flood of uninspired empty eyes and spirals, which I too sometimes end up doing since it's easy and people tend to like them. The reason I like to make manips is because they let me play around in photoshop in ways I usually would never do and thus I learn a bunch of techniques, plus they are really quick and easy compared to actually drawing.
