    Hello there. Hows it going?

    I'm sorry to hear that, I hope you get well soon.

    I've been meaning to ask you for a while, I wanted to do it by PMs but I'm still not allowed to use that feature here.

    Is your Code Geass SI story dead or on hiatus?
    Bacle
    Bacle
    That SI is on hiatus, not dead. I have every intention of continuing it, and part of focusing on my writing is so I can get new content out. For most of 2020 the virus and politics took up most of my mental energies, so I didn't write as much as I should have.

    Amir-015
    Okay.

    The main reason why I came here was because I wanted to read more of that story. ^^

    I wanted to see how the SI effects things and how he handles himself with the inevitable butterfly effects.

    The anti-LGB part of the Right will be it's undoing, if they are allowed to take power or dictate policy.

    The LGBs who came over to help and unite under Trump will not forget who stabbed them in the back, if paleo-con control of the Right's views on LGB comes to pass.

    There will be no mercy and no peace with paleo-cons if they try to keep pushing us back into the closet.
    Finally back I see.

    The ban was Zoe throwing a temper tantrum as she tried to destroy this forum, same with a lot of the stupid shit she did since March. Zoe admitted she wanted to kill this site because of us expressing our political views, views that conflicted with her position of power/job IRL, and that she viewed this site as a 'threat' to the nation because we dared to say the election was stolen, Covid is being overhyped, and that Texas is in the right for wanting to succeed, now that the Constitution is a dead letter.

    Looking back, Zoe should have left after her facist quip near the beginning, and given it to Sunhawk then. She may have created this place, but she was toxic to it in the end.

    Yeah, that was a problem from the get go, and Zoe was stuck in the stupid 'civility above all else' mindset of fucking prissy New Englanders.

    She wanted a Veinna Coffeehouse, and when she didn't get that, she decided she had to 'course correct' the site in some of the most hamfisted ways possible.

    She really should have left/sold this place a long time ago; everyone (her included) would have been better off for it.

    Welp SCOTUS just proved that the Constitution is meaningless.
    Bacle
    Bacle
    I know, I saw they decided to be cowards and dodge on the case by not ruling on it's merits, only on Texas's standing.

    There are other cases headed to SCOTUS though, and Trump himself has not filed his case yet.

    So this is a set-back, and sucks, but it is not the end. Even if SCOTUS chickens out on all the cases, there are Congressional methods to deal with the electoral fraud and issues surrounding the election. Trump can still win in several ways, including other SCOTUS cases.

    It's not over till either Trump concedes and/or Biden is sworn in.

    Also, check this out:

    There are state level officials talking about succession as a way to save the Constitution from the Swamp, and they may be right.

    Seems like Kelly case is still safe, its just the injunction relief that was denied.
    Bacle
    Bacle
    Fair enough. Still, not a great thing, but I can understand why SCOTUS wouldn't want to grant it before the full case is heard.

    And the Texas case seems like it is on much firmer ground, given Texas specifically did not allow the Dominion machines to be used their because of security concerns.

    The moderation on this site has become less coherent, and more knee jerk, since the election and is only getting worse.

    This is the problem with the owner and some Staff also being Fed contractors who value thier jobs above the integrity of our elections and the survival of our Republic.
    Bacle, though I still have serious disagreements with you on some issues, I have come to respect you even more as of late. Since, you have proven that you have clearly defined ideals that you wish to stand up for and you wish to do the right thing.
    So I now have my official Trump hat.

    It's the 'Make Space Great Again' version. I knew something had been shipped from the Trump campaign for me, didn't know what.

    It's like Trump knows I'm a giant space nerd and sci-fi fan.
    It's become evident that trying to be a voice in the middle is pointless on this forum.

    Almost everyone already has entrenched ideological positions, sees compromise as a 4-letter word, and most only care about the 'culture war', not effective governance or trying to heal divides.

    This site is becoming a dark mirror of SBs worst bits with increasing speed.

    Well, for the site, pretty hopeful. Despite the hysterics of some far-right folks, I'm feeling pretty happy about this sites future.
    For the US...that entirely depends on what happens durring the election; not hugely optimistic that even a Trump win will allows things to settle down.
    For Trump winning...fairly hopeful, despite the polls. The GOP is registering more new voters than the Dems, and a lot of them are ex-Dems, or blacks and hispanics.
    For myself...that depends on if I can find a way to live with my TDS afflicted father long term, how an upcoming neurologist appointment goes, if things settle to the point I can find work without worrying about Covid, and whether Trump wins or not. I've basically staked my future on Trump winning, and know if he loses, people like me are going to be purged, either with force or 'social credit' type stuff.
    I've realized that the base of both sides of American politics are as tribal as ever, and only want the center to echo what they think, not criticize their sacred cows.

    I have a home on neither the Right or Left, because they both only tolerate dissent when they feel safe and sure they will win.

    It's weird, but this whole virus has given me a purpose I never thought I'd have; helping people understand how to fight a common enemy that does not discriminate. Even people who's politics piss me off, and those people who are pissed off by my politics, deserve to be as safe as possible from this scourge.
    I am so fucking tired of fighting a battle I can never win, for a life where I have little reason to fight, and still having people expect me to be self-sacrificing and just trudge on regardless.

    I have been hoping it would get easier for over 20 fucking years, and every time that hope was in vain. I have had to fight suicidal thoughts multiple times every fucking day for years, because of a badly made anti-depressants I was forced to take in elementary school, and those thoughts are likely never going to go away. I have been living for the sake of not hurting others with my death, not because I want to live or have much of a reason to. Yet people continually tell me to just fucking trudge on, and demand I be self-sacrificing on top of everything else.

    I appreciate the thought behind your post, but I am living a life I do not want, for the sake of others not reasons of my own, so DO NOT give me that trite 'that's life' cliche.

    Thats the one actually.

    One of the guys who left a comment said that the reason why she reacted that way was because the last time she saw that kind of expression was when Lelouch almost resorted to using a certain drug..

    Hello. We've never spoken on SpaceBattles (that I remember), but I do remember you (or at least, your likes) from the Harry and the Shipgirls thread(s). (Of which I'm on page 98 of the first thread.) How are you doing?

    I'm doing better now that I don't need to worry about SB anymore.

    I remember your stuff in HatSG, it was pretty good. I stopped reading it a while pack; it became to directionless and was becoming bloated with every mythology/anthropomorphisation under the sun. Which was a shame, as it started so strong.

    I moved my own Code Geass SI over here.

    Sure, I'd be happy to look over any ideas you have. I have a deep knowledge of Legends canon, less so for the new canon. Shoot me a PM with the details.

    As for my Code Geass SI, glad you are enjoying it. I'm taking a break from it for a little while. I know what I want to do with it, but I lost 3 plus hours of work on the current chapter to a draft-function glitch, and it kinda took a little wind out of my sails. Right now I am working on a Battlestar Galactica/Code Geass crossover to try and get the juices flowing again.
