Well, this will teach me to check the blog section more often. Farewell, Jolene. :<
Bye bye, I'll miss you.
Shame. Never forget us.
I will avenge you and so forth.
k bye. Have fun.
It's always kind of a shame when people leave, but it's your choice. Well, I Hope you enjoy life off the forums, then.
Jolene, we may have very different morality scales, but I still enjoyed the times I spoke with you. No matter what, people are going to disagree on things, but that's what makes our friendship special.
I'm sorry to see you go and I hope you stop by at one point in the future. :<
Shoot, just logged in and missed the anniversary by a landslide, but I'm honored to be mentioned :) Glad you're still here~
This is pure gold. For the record, I'm #teamnicole
I don't see no ring on her finger so leave it alone.
That was interesting...
Must involve a lot of typing.
I want a trilogy
Ugh, these guys again? If they're not already, they should be permabanned (or at least Allan).
AllanXNicole is my otp. We should really add it to the official list of shippings...
This makes me laugh and also makes me sad at the same time.
When I first heard that A Modern Romeo & Juliet was getting a sequel, I was skeptical. How does one improve on perfection? The original is a tragic tale of romance, loss, retribution and repent. All of the threads tie themselves together so naturally, logically, beautifully, and completely. A sequel? Where do you even begin if the story is so complete? I could not come up with any satisfactory revival myself, but my mistake was not trusting the creators of this magnificence. A Modern Romeo & Juliet 2: Eelektrik Boogaloo seems almost aware of the legacy that it's been tasked with keeping. It treats the canon of its story with a respect that very few sequels do. Although the original's story did feel complete through the magic of brilliant writing and pacing, it was also powerful in its ambiguity, its story of a relationship that ends without closure. Eelektrik Boogaloo takes this relationship and drags it out for a few more pain-filled, labored minutes as Allan vainly attempts to fix the damage done. It continues the downward spiral that the original portrayed so effectively, taking it to its next logical stage; that moment in the relationship where the participants just give up, not out of acceptance or complacence, but hopelessness. It is poetic in its down-fall. The pacing is so expert that every twist and turn (and mental break-down on Allan's part) flows seamlessly, like your entire life flashing before your eyes as you watch your entire world crumbling in front of you. Allan's nervous break-down is one of the most chilling sequences ever put to literature.
I would go ahead and say that this story has reached its conclusion and nothing could top it, but I was wrong last time, wasn't I?
Nicole is such a cruel troll ;_;
Happy Bulbaversary! Sorry for the belated wishes, I was away.
An enigma, wrapped in a mystery, wrapped in a puzzle, wrapped in bacon. Happy thing I guess.
Yay, I'm rememberable! But hey, I mean, I've actually barely been active the past year compared to what I used to be. Can't believe you've only been here a year though, seems like longer since you've been a regular. And congrats, you're a regular Conversationalist in my opinion. Only a select group have achieved that~
Happy Bulbaversary home girl.
I'm still voting for independence.
