      11/21 Maintenance   11/20/2017

      There will be a scheduled forum maintenance on 11/21 in the American evening. We'll be updating to the latest forum version so that Ame can pretend she's a responsible admin when she begs the software proprietors for support to fix these stupid site errors instead of being left to cry into a dark abyss forever. The forum could be unavailable for several hours. Thank you for understanding.

  1. I figured I'd make my own since it feels like this should be made by someone who actually knows you and I refuse to post my message elsewhere. I am indifferent to birthdays. Birthdays represent nothing but what is only an abstract passage of time, and they're ultimately wrong. If you account leap years and the fact that every year is several seconds longer than the last our birthdays by the time we reach legal age are already offset enough to be a day before the date we celebrate. By the time we die, it can be a week or more. I also dislike the exercise behind it. We use birthdays - and christmas, and thanksgiving, and what-have-you as an excuse to do something that should be done on a daily basis. Credit, when warranted, should be given. When not, shouldn't. A birthday is irrelevant. It's a vestigial celebration from a time where simply being born and living an extra year mattered because years were important to begin with. It's like our pancreas - It serves no purpose, but everyone still wants to keep theirs. And yet I find myself still wanting to say something different in yours, even if I feel I don't keep the sentiment hidden. In the past I've tried to draw parallels from our relationship to similar, more common-ly accepted ideologies. Simblings. Or saying you're my daughter. Family. That, also, is a pointless comparison, as ultimately not only is each of these relationships intrinstically subjective tot he people partaking in them - and thus fairly inapt for the purpose of serving a baseline But even if not, it still would not quite fit whichever parallel I drew because of the simple fact is that our relationship is our relationship. It's unique and it has no parallels. No nothing like it. It is a bond that belongs to us and us alone, and one I am grateful for. It's not lost on me that on a "happy birthday" message it took me two paragraphs to say I am grateful for you, but neither of these facts should come to you as a surprise. I also won't coddle you with false promises of unconditional, permanent friendship. We both know that isn't something that exists. One day, we'll more than likely move on our separate ways. Hopefully, however, whichever marks I left on you persist for longer in your life than I will. Your marks will persist in mine, as the runes spelling out "Grima" that grace my left arm can attest to. Often enough I came to the description of a brazillian poet, Vinicius de Moraes, in his Sonet to Fidelity, in which he describes not what love is, but what he expects from it- "May it not burn forever, as it is flame; But may it shine infinitely bright while it lasts." Our love is not romantic but it is love just the same, and a brilliant flame it is. It may not last forever, but as it is today it already burns bright enough to, on occasion, illuminate an otherwise gloomy perspective a certain old fox has. And even after its burning days are long past, I sincerely hope that, in days where the winter comes to grace you, its embers can help keep the cold away Happy birthday, dear
  2. Meet the vets!

    I was bored one day and started looking for new games. Then I was like "I enjoyed Pokémon when I was a kid I should look it up" And then I came across an article commenting the 10 pokémon games you have to try and went "wait there's more than 10 pokémon games????" Reborn was on the list. I looked at the site, downloaded it, ran it, saw the intro scene and said in amazement: "this some weeb shit" And then didn't touch the game for a solid six months. After those six months though I stumbled upon reborn on my hard drive and decided I'd give it a chance so I started playing it and it wasn't half-bad. So I figured I'd check out the community, joined in, and then approached Amethyst to talk to her about the game and mentioned I was a developer and she was like "do you know Ruby???" and I was like "this bitch about to ask me for help?" and said no. However a day later I got my vacation laid out and I discovered I'd have two weeks of absolutely nothing to do and figured what the hell les do dis so I hit Ame up again and decided to learn Ruby. I ended up learning Ruby in like three days, coded over 50 moves in the next two weeks and my general adorable attitude made Amethyst immediately fall in love with me and we proceeded to become the ultimate dev couple to grace this planet. Except not. I did impress her and it did lead on to us working together more and to great extent, and we developed a very, very strong bond of fraternal friendship that by itself makes joining Reborn having been worth it (even if she ignores me half the time). And that's the story of how I joined Reborn. What happened afterwards is another tale, for another time.
  3. Meet the vets!

    Hey there! I know what you're all thinking - Who the hell is this fox-shaped person writing posts about getting to know veterinarians? Well my friend, you just got something very, very wrong - I'm actually not fox shaped at all! I'm a 100% human person who uses a fox-like name as a username. Silly, silly reader. So it came to my attention that there's currently a kind of rift between older and newer members; One caused by the fact that, in an introduction thread, a person exposes themselves bare to a basic level wheras the veterans remain guarded, having done their respective introductions years ago and them being buried away (or, like in my case, outright deleted) That makes it hard to know the veterans at a basic level. The rift between old and new ends up widening each year while the old slowly fade away and the new become the old, just so they can alienate themselves from the new-new and so on. So in an attempt to break this cycle and bridge this gap, I've decided to create this thread as a way to get the vets to open up a bit and expose ourselves for what we really are - Grouchy old bastards who hate change. And who better to begin than yours truly, AKA semi-relevant former developer who went away and then sorta came back but only on discord except now they're writing a post so on the forums too I guess? - Or Kuro for short. The way I'll write my own expose below is not in any way a format to be strictly followed, but it can serve as a suggestion to those who aren't feeling particularly creative: General Info: Known as: Kurotsune / Kuro Age: 28 years old Gender: On the internet I prefer to be seen as non-binary, using "they" pronouns. Birthday: June 30, 1989 Location: Brazil Height: 173cm Hair Color: Jet black Eye Color: Brown Lives with: A giant ego (AKA alone) Pets: None! Relationship status: Single! Favourite Food: My favorite food right now is this chicken salad recipe I've invented a week ago Favourite Drink: Boring ol' water Favourite Color: Blaaaaaaack! Favourite kind of Music: Electro swing, as of recently Favourite Band: Avantasia Favourite Album: Avantasia - The Mystery of Time Favourite Song: The Killers - A Dustland Fairytale Favourite Game: Fallout 4 as of right now Favourite Genre of Game: Metroidvania! Favourite Hobbies: Reading, writing, psychology, philosophy, coding Favourite Movies: The Last Samurai's been my favourite movie for a long time. Don't watch a lot of 'em Favourite Shows: Whose Line is it Anyway? Community questions: So, who are you?: I'm Kuro! I joined the community to some fanfare at the end of 2014 and have been up to no good deed ever since. I'm the brains behind some of the implementations in Reborn, as I was a part of and led the development team for a year and a half before my departure. I'm the person who unofficialy trained both Marcello and Jericho as developers for Pokémon Reborn, and acted as Amethyst's right-hand on the development front during my tenure - In fact, for most of my stay it was just me and her, and the others slowly started popping up along the ride. Anything you're responsible for? As aforementioned, I'm responsible for a lot of implementations in pokémon reborn - Including the weather system and over 50 moves, the backup save system and some other implementations along the way. I'm also responsible for training Marcello until he could take on the challenges of heading development by himself. I'm also responsible for the Dragon Tours, though I figure only the oldies will remember those, and last but not least, I'm responsible for a lot of general mischief around the community. If you had to choose one of your posts as your way to introduce yourself, which would it be? I kinda wrote my whole life story here, for better or worse What can I talk to you about? In a certain way, anything. I greatly appreciate wit and I'm a very sarcastic (and, I hear, outwardly intimidating) person who is capable and willing to discuss any and all matters under the sun including the sun itself as long as my partner is willing to make the conversation interesting. I'm a firm believer in brutal honesty and don't shy away from it, but I can take it as much as I can dish it; If you feel you can handle the fox-heat, don't shy away from the foxfire! Closing statements? I sincerely hope this takes off enough to assist the community to grow together as one. Throught my time here, directly or not, I've worked towards that goal and I feel no effort to achieve it is wasted. Hopefully through this we'll all be able to know each other a bit better and find some more common ground - If nothing else, it could serve as a conversation starter. And with that, lovelies, I'm done. Thank you for your time and your patience reading through this, and I hope I'll see plenty of you old farts sharing here with me!
  4. Happy Birthday :D, i hope you will have a fun day ^^

  5. I didn't think I'd be here again. It's been a while since we've spoken.


    We start talking, and I remember all the times we've spent together. It always tasted the same for the first few words.

    You're bitter, dark, and cruel. You remind me of the worst in me. You make me wish you were never there.

     

    And then you take it away.

     

    A few words in and I remember why I always came to you. A few words in and the buzzing in my head tells me I'm losing myself once again.

     

    Mayhaps, losing yourself is not so bad after all - You reassure me. True. Maybe it isn't so bad after all.

     

    We continue our exchange and I feel the numbness. Like always - From the top of my head to the tips of my fingers. A familiar sensation if there ever was one - I'm filled with you, complete by your essence - And empty just the same.

     

    At the end of the day, you give me nothing, and you take everything away from me, but I keep coming back. It's been a while since we spoke. I wonder how much until I decide to talk to you again.
