  • Wonky: Ares is the god of the Underworld right?
    Me: no. That’s Hades.
    Wonky: so then who’s the god of the Upperworld?
    Me: Zeus
    Wonky: I thought that was Athena
    Me: I’m concerned for you

    WeepingWisteria Make him play the game Hades. It will explain a few things like god of the underworld versus the god of death, whether Hades a bad guy, and who the best gays in all of Greek myth are.

  • College Rant:

    So I need one more elective to graduate and I decided I was gonna take Literature because I’m a writer, so it can’t be /too/ bad right? I was WRONG.

    We have papers due every 3 days, I have to read a novel in two weeks, and I have to write an analysis paper on that. Not to mention we also have quizzes, discussions, and scenarios. And this isn’t even the only class I’m taking, I also decided it’d be the perfect time to take Advanced Surgical Theory at the same time, because as I said, I thought Lit would be an easy A.

    So now, I’m up trying to remember how to use MLA format because It’s been 6 years since I learned that. And this novel was written in the 1800s so that’s just great.

    Love that for me so much

    SkyVibes Purdue Owl is what I use for MLA. I didn’t really ever do any research papers in High school so coming into college I was kinda screwed. However in Purdue Owl, you can put in the link to your respurce, chose MLA or APA font and it will make a citation for you of which you can copy and paste. It will even let you make a whole works cited page! And it’s all free! Highly recommend and saved my butt on my last English assignment which got me to pass with a B in the class.
    Also I recommend getting Grammarly and using ChatGPT. Dont use GPT to make the whole paper of course, but it does great when you give it a papagraph you might not like and ask it to make it better. I got so many different words that described perfectly what I needed or better word organization from both GPT and Grammarly.

    SkyVibes This is another website me and another friend used a lot to survive out English teacher bcs she deducted hard when I came to wrong citations:


    Also( sorry for all the notifications u prob have now) listening to a yt video abt the summary of a book or walk through is super helpful if you’re in a pinch. Just saying.

  • Hi everyone,

    Yesterday was an emotional rollercoaster. Last night, Harley and I were walking to my car and she let go off my hand to start running and got hit by a driver who was going 50 miles per hour in our neighborhood. She suffered a collapsed lung and pulmonary hemorrhage. The ambulance rushed us to the hospital and I was told that if I waited any longer, she wouldn't have made it. The driver didn't stop, so the police are currently trying to look at camera footage.

    She got out of surgery super late last night and doctors expect her to have a 100% recovery rate-- but she will be stuck here for a few days, if not weeks. Poor thing doesn't remember what happened and how, but she's up and talking so that's good.

    These past few months, we have been going through a lot and this was just the cherry on top. Needless to say, I will most likely be on YWS less frequently until she gets home. I'll still be on a couple times a day to check on things/respond to PMs/ do LSS, but not as much as I normally am.

    I'm not very religious, but we could use all the prayers in the world right now. Thanks family <3

    RavenAkuma That's awful, I'm so sorry to hear that! Reckless drivers make my blood boil...I'm glad it sounds like Harley will recover, and I'll be sending you both healing energy and the best of luck <3
    May 15, 2024

    Spearmint oh no!! that sounds absolutely terrifying DD:
    glad she'll recover fully <3 sending health and good vibes T-T <333

  • *I was thinking about posting something to "Throne Of Blood" (still haven't worked it out lol) and got a character design idea I had to share with you and @WeepingWisteria. What if there was a Naga that was half rattlesnake ? (0.0 )

    Ley That sounds super cool! I think we only have one naga, though already? And we already sent out PMs for who the killer is, so if we add another charrie we’d have to redo the randomization and I think it mayyy mess things up a little. But you could totally add another naga that may work for the Queen and could be a side character, but not part of the group! If Wist agrees :D
    May 13, 2024

    RavenAkuma Oh yeah, should've clarified; I didn't mean the roleplay specifically! I was just putting it out there as an idea if you wanted to continue developing it into its own story, and needed more side-characters. I was trying to see if I could incorporate this into my character's story, but I can't find a way to do it without it seeming totally out-of-place >.> Anyway, I just thought you guys might enjoy the idea ^^

  • A few more months until college graduation/my trip around the world!

    I’ve decided I really wanna go to Greece (I’ve never been and want to see all the historic Greek mythology landmarks), Bulgaria, and Romania, and Italy! I need to renew my passport and book things now or I’ll be so behind when the time comes. I wanna leave the day after I graduate xD

    Ley And when I say a few more months I mean 6 months xD I need to have this baby first. I think it’d take me 6 months to even get a new passport anyways. So maybe leaving the day after my graduation is out of the question :(
    May 13, 2024

    RavenAkuma A trip and a newborn? Sounds like things will be exciting for you! Wishing you the best <3

  • The Daughter of War chapter 35 is out! This is one of my favorite chapters, a deep dive into Josephine and Aphrodite's relationship, and a turning point/realization for Jase :3.

    Chapter 35: Together

    Spoiler for my fav part <333 If you read DoW, I'd suggest you don't read this xD
    Spoiler! :
    He loved the woman that stood before him. He decided right there and then, he’d protect her with his life—even if that meant killing himself in the process. He would do anything for her. Their connection was a lifeline, a guiding light in the darkness that surrounded them. Josephine was not just a companion—she was the person he cared for more deeply than he had ever cared for anyone else.

    For her, he would brave the darkest depths of the Underworld if that meant he could see her smile like this for the rest of eternity.

There is hopeful symbolism in the fact that flags do not wave in a vacuum.
