  • just purely out of curiosity, whats the coldest line one of your characters has ever said?

    GengarIsBestBoy This actually hasn’t been used in a story yet, but sometimes I think of random lines that I might be able to use one day, so here it is: “I would tell you to run, but even I know it’s pointless”.

    GengarIsBestBoy Honestly its kinda dumb but it’s certainly a line

  • for some reason i got banned but i can still access the site? what?


    lliyah This seems like it was likely an error...

    Maybe you share an IP address with someone who got banned? Ie. Someone at school, at home, or in local coffee shop?

    Will forward concern on to BB and see if we can get resolved...

  • this is literally just gonna be me ranting about the school system, feel free to skip, might touch on some sensitive topics so be weary

    Spoiler! :

    OK so, this rant is probably gonna be rambling and filled with grammatical errors, im just so unbelievably pissed so here we go, i apologize in advance for any profanity.
    What is wrong with the education system? Like seriously, why is it so messed up? You're literally sending children to suffer. That sounds very pessimistic, but as a current high school student I see first hand the experiences of teens at school. Like its exam season now, and i literally know a girl who passed out because she isnt sleeping? Why? Because she is studying for exams. Like school and marks are important but they shouldnt affect your sleep schedule or health? Why do we normalize this? Its gotten so bad that im literally sick because of exams. Like I feel like throwing up 24/7 and queasy. Because of a number on a piece of paper. The other day a student literally KILLED THEMSELF and my reaction was "oh thats sad" because ive become so desensitized to it that it feels like a normal occurence. Thats a human life and so many people dont care because "its just another kid", its just a name in a long list of names, it carries no meaning or weight anymore. That should not be OK. Also the fact that the education system literally does not care about its student body is kinda concerning??? Like ive noticed a pattern with how our school (and many other schools) work. Its just, something bad happens, parent complains, principal promises to take action, principal does nothing, the same thing happens to a different student and it just keeps going on forever. We have a huge drug and vaping problem at our school. And like it literally took a kid OD'ing for the principal to EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE that the issue exists. He then promised to do all these different things and then yk what he did? Thats right. Nothing. A kid OD'd at least try and solve the issue? I literally saw a teacher telling a bunch of kids who were doing drugs that she would join them if she could. HOW IS THAT SOLVING THE ISSUE??? Another example. I was in the bathroom on the stall. And a kid literally took a PHOTO OF ME using the bathroom. And then ran away. So I couldnt see him. So naturally I went to the office to report it. The VP said she would "take action" and then a few hrs later called me into her office and said she couldnt do anything. She said that "all the security cameras are angled poorly so you cant see the students face". OK then fix them??? Whats the point of having the security cameras if you cant see anything? Oh yeah and heres a fun conversation my friend had with our principal.
    Friend: I noticed you have the pride flag outside since it's pride month?
    Principal: Yes
    Friend: Do you think you can keep it up all year round? I think it would greatly help since many members of the LGBTQ community feel unheard
    Principal: No, that would mean we actually support it
    I get that the principal probably has his hands tied and theres nothing he can do but still even then, you could have worded that better. It also slightly concerns me on how much they actually care about the issues they advocate for. We have this case dedicated to these different things, ones about the lgbtq community but that got taken down after pride month. Theres also a blm one and one about an alumni at our school who was killed in iran. And I get that the principal probably doesnt care about that one alumni too much but still, all of this shows that our school doesnt care about anyone except what the parents think of them. And dont even get me started on some of the faculty. We have some really good ones but theres really bad ones that cancel them out. Like that one teacher who literally yelled at a student for taking a phone call, the phone call was from her mother telling her that her brother was in the er. The teacher did not care. Or the teacher who doesnt actually know what they're teaching and provides misinformation and needs to constantly be corrected by the STUDENTS. Theres some others but you get the gist of it. OK I'm done ranting. Thanks for reading.

    SpunkyMonkey seriously, the school system just universally sucks. i'm sorry you're overwhelmed with it all right now <3

    Quillfeather That is a lot
    I think something that makes it harder for change is when you tell an adult they just say"well back in MY day..." And they don't realize that school's have been progressively getting harder, more course load, more exams, more emotional bullying. There's so much more going on these days. And it's true, there are actually studies. But when there are problems we're told to push through it because all the boomers and X'ers had it harder. (Not to mention that if that was true just because it was hard for you doesn't mean it's not hard for us) anyway, hope it all goes well for you
