@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho
@  Elwood : (27 September 2019 - 05:52 AM) I still come here everyday because this is still my homepage in Firefox! XD
@  Ezra : (25 September 2019 - 03:07 PM) I also miss the days the forums I used were more active :(
@  Fire Blazer : (15 September 2019 - 05:39 AM) I do kinda miss the days these forums were active :(
@  Ezra : (29 August 2019 - 04:14 PM) *BOX!!!*
@  kirant : (19 August 2019 - 12:49 PM) Huh. Bothammer time.

I didn't know what place I should do this if this isn't the right place I guess tell me to switch the spot, but I'm just wondering if any of y'all have gone to college yet and if you did what did you major in. Just curious what my Fire Emblem Family I guess I will say does. Like you in school still. Grown up out of college or what. Feel free to tell me some of your hobbies and such. Me I use to wrestle in school, loved it with a passion.

 

I graduated High school with a regents diploma and A certificate in Conservation and Equipment Tech with a Nocti which is basically really good its like a regents for school. And out of like 50 kids. more only ten of us got it me being the one with the highest for the test. so I'm certified in machinery work and logging and forestry. I mean I ain't the smartest person mainly grammar is what messes me up I'm bad at it please forgive if anything in this post is totally off grammar.

 

Besides that I go to church on a high occasion honestly. I'm an Pentecostal Christian most would put it. I view it as just being a Christian honestly yeah each branch of Christianity has different views I guess we can say but in the church and everything I still view you as my brother or sister. I'm usually not a violent type and tend to drop the conversation. I'm known for my kind heart and caring personality.

 

But yeah I am attending a Bible College that has a three year program and I get my degree my second year(Its called a Degree in Theology.) which Theo is one if I'm correct. And obviously ology is study of. So I study about God and Jesus and the Bible. I do daily devotions and all that. But I really want to know some of yall I mean it seems creepy I guess? May be?

 

But I do care who you are and all that. also for my college the third year is optional, I want to do it. I get to travel to different churches and all that and speak the word, and I get to go overseas with a team and people from my class. But yeah that's me I guess. Well hope for results thanks and hope you all have a blessed day!

Is English your first language, or is something else?

 

That was really hard to read. Try adding some spacing between topics and making several paragraphs. It's easier on the eyes.

 

I'm not one to give away personal information on the internet. But I will say that I'm female and Christian.

 

I like video games, but mostly own only Nintendo consoles (I have a PS2 but it's only to play my PS1 games that I've had since childhood.) I like the color blue, I like cats, my favorite Pokemon is actually Pikachu, and I like looking at pictures of space.

 

My main in Smash Bros 4 is Roy, with Pikachu being my second-most-used. My favorite FE game is Sacred Stones, with Awakening coming in second. One of my favorite video game genres is virtual pet sims. Not that there are any good ones on the market these days.

No I'm English all the way, I just forget to do paragraphs, ill try to remember. Its always been my weak point. But yeah for Pokemon my favorite is Lucario(besides Ash's Pikachu) Smash bro I love using Ike he is like a slow brute and its great. I have an Xbox 360 don't play much honestly. Ever since college, only Fire emblem 7 and Eight and some hacked Pokemon Games.

 

P.S Is that better? I added paragraphs why didn't I think of that.

It wasn't difficult for me to read the first time around.

 

Of course, it's me we're talking about here, though...

It was a little all over the place, but I could follow your first post just fine.

We're starting to get a good group of Christians here =p nice to know religion still has a place on the Internet. Most of the Internet is very unwelcoming when you say you're Christian(though I don't know why. Most people wouldn't recognize that I'm religious at all without straight up telling them that I am.)

Hey another Ike player. I love Ike man. Those smashes are just too good.

I've noticed that as well. This forum has a decent amount of respectable individuals on it, at least. All mature adults who are not going to immediately feel offended and attack over tiny things. lol

 

One time I mentioned I was Christian on another FE forum and made myself an enemy for LIFE. Dunno if he's still around or not but he found me on dA later on and I was like <<;;; *casually goes to block*

 

I've seen his posts on Serenes and he's trademarked his username now. lol

 

When I go to college, it'll probably be to become a website designer. I need to learn how to drive (but more importantly, parallel park) first, though. -_-

yeah I know Zac, people who are mean cause I believe in God are just ridiculous, I'm like I'm just stating who I am, I'm not going to put it in your throat. I mean if we get into the discussion and all that and they are willing to actually listen ill share and witness to them. But that is part of being a Christian also getting attacked because I believe in God. Its like I'm sorry if I offended you by saying God or Jesus wont happen again. Like I said I try to stay out of arguments and bring trouble. Cause you argue with one person then it always involves more then one person cause you can be friends with one person and them also and they have to choose between you or them. Get what I mean Man?

 

Also Leafy I'm sorry that people treated you bad on other forums and I noticed that quick also on here that people wont be like you are a Christian go die these people here are mature for sure from what I have seen so far. Also web designer is nice, and yeah to fix the parallel parking buy a smart car its easy to do(cause its tiny) just kidding that part is the hardest and most nervous.

Christians have been persecuted while the Bible was still being written. It's nothing new.

Christians have been persecuted while the Bible was still being written. It's nothing new.

Yes I know this for a fact and I deal with it. Its part of the bible. I don't enjoy it. but with me i'm like they don't know better they aint saved or don't come to know Jesus. If you go in thinking being a Christian isn't hard and all that think again yes everyone gets it hard, for anything they believe but that's one thing that makes me upsets when a person it like a Christian shouldn't be treated like this, I'm like bro go read the bible and you will find proof. But that's me haha, even when I was a full pledge atheist I got treated Li crap by everyone. I've been one of them kids that everyone was just mean for no reason. But now I understand why and forgive them.

yeah it's kinda in the Bible that Christians are going to be persecuted against for the better part of...well forever really, so i'm not surprised in the least. it's annoying that the reason we're being "bullied"(couldn't come up with a better word, but that's not really what i want to say), but meh. let 'em say whatever i guess.

This may or may not be an attempt to redirect the topic from religion, out of pure wariness of discussing it on the internet. lol

 

Its always been my weak point. But yeah for Pokemon my favorite is Lucario(besides Ash's Pikachu)

Just... Ash's Pikachu? I mean, Ash's Pikachu is great and I love it far more than any of the humans in the show but that's strangely specific. XD

Ok we got more then ash's pikachu, Sparky(haven't seen in him awhile frown face:(...) but yeah ash's pikachu is different from most. Obviously but he knows how to talk to ash actually and ash understands him. By the way he says pika and that and he says it in a certain way, like he has a special way of saying misty(can't remember these) and dawn I believe and all of his mainly girl companions that's why he is awesome. Also ash's pikachu is the only electric Pokemon that can k.o ground types. Like Rhyhorn, Onix and that. (way off topic kind of but What do you think of Serena? Honestly I thought dawn was good but Serena is much different. And it actually truly shows that she likes him wasn't confirmed in others and she has known him the longest kind of? Do you think creators are thinking of putting them together and having ash win the Kalo's league? If you are up to this point?)

As I said, I don't like any of the humans on the show. My favorite parts of the anime are the mini-movies (Pikachu specials) because there's no humans in them at all.

 

In general, though, I have a loathing towards the anime. It's too stupid, childish, breaks its own rules, breaks the games' rules, and it's repetitive.

 

From what I've heard of the anime, though, Selena's backstory is dumb and completely conflicts with Ash's character.

Yeah the went to a pokemon camp together forever ago and she kept something for him that he gave her cause she got hurt. Its different, but they better not be like loses kalos league and completely forget about Serena. Like many others. And yes they make anime sometimes stupid and make nothing out of them. The Pokemon seem smarter sometimes then the people.
