    And now all this character talk has gotten me inspired to touch up Team WOLF yet again, so that they're in tip top condition for their Amino Vytal Festival. Whew!


    Not that they'll have any trouble. Hehe...

    Xy here, presenting ya'll with a random character prompt.  Because those are all the rage these days:  As it's been implied that a character's Semblance grows alongside them, in what ways have your characters semblances evolved, or how do you plan on evolving them in the future? I'll lead by example...


    Calida Fury:  As her Semblance, at the moment, is more or less just Aura+, she'll eventually find a way to manifest or condense the Aura shielding into actual physical armor and infuse it with Dust to let her ram into people as a fireball.  As a bonus, a high enough level of this Semblance would likely let her move around on her own without her exosuit.


    Tishin Hayes: The ability to reverse her Semblance (Make things in the area field lighter) and have more control of the size and shape of her Mist cloud, either by focusing it in such a way that she's not always in the center of it, or directing it in much smaller areas (Like to pin enemies down, or to give her weapon a better downward swing).  The weight limit on the Semblance would also increase as she herself becomes stronger, and the mist itself might become more 'dense' as to slow down or dampen attacks.


    Ashlyn Wight: As her Dad can use his Semblance to take over the willpower of people he decides to possess, Ashlyn's semblance instead would eventually allow her to bond with other willing Aura users, bolstering both their powers when in proximity and sharing a minor emotional connection with one-another.  


    Neith Rakashi:  In Addition to increasing the strength of her 'Sticky' Semblance, evolution would allow her to keep residue on other objects for much longer, and would even allow her to use it to walk on water, or reverse the friction of a surface to make it slick or slippery.

    Its meant to be read with and played with a LOT of self Irony.

    No. No it's not. You may be thinking of the fact that it's a play on the tropes of Comedies and Tragedies, something that Shakespeare did a lot. In this instance, Romeo and Juliet's form starts out very much in line with a Comedy of the era before shifting to a Tragedy format at about the point where Mercutio is killed. By mixing Comedy and Tragedy together like that, Shakespeare sought to make the final result come as more of a shock to the audience. Not so groundbreaking in the modern day, but this was first performed about 400 years ago and was definitely a lot more groundbreaking back then. Basically it began imitating a satire, but then threw off the mask at the midway point for the gut-punch effect, revealing its true form as a tragic Tragedy.

    Think of it like a Shakespearian Madoka Magica. (God that sounds fucking awesome....)


    Oh god, I can't stop talking about classic literature! Flee, you fools! Escape my monotone lectures while you still can! I'm so sorry!!!!

    Except no.

    He through out the whole thing reinforces commonly held beliefs and the political climate of the situation and mocks them HEAVILY.

    Its disguised as a tragedy but it is in fact a satire and there is in fact a LOT of papers on it discussing it and going over this.

    Many of the things he pokes fun of are common tropes and well known factors of the time. For example men and women got married at 30 and 20 respectively.

    Romeo and Juliet are 15 and 13.

    These are the things that are showing it is in fact poking fun at the tropes but people have lost the understanding of those ideas and so no longer recognize it is in fact poking fun at that.

    Tell you what, I'm going to give you a choice here. Either I can respond to each sentence you just posted one at a time and directly prove why each of them are wrong, or I can go into a greater amount of detail about your misconception as a whole and write a micro-essay that cites the actual play, papers written about the play, and historical papers about the culture of the times all multiple times. Course the catch on the second one is that it'll take longer, and I'm supposed to be watching Konosuba with my friends tonight, so it'll take a while to write up. Preferably I'd do the former rather than the latter to save time, energy, and space on the thread because I'm sure people don't want to read a small essay on R&J. But if you really want, I can do either. Your call.

    Yeah how about we not treat me like that at all?

    You disagree? Fine my degree in anthropology which has made me read dozens upon dozens of papers on this disagrees with you. And yes I am working towards my Masters.

    He is treating me like I have no idea what I am talking about.

    I know for a FACT there is papers on this discussion on both sides of the debate because I had to read 3 on each side and then do a paper on it for my historic writing class years ago.

    And i had a GLUT of resources on the subjects.

    He's literally not. He's debating something, so of course he's going to act like he's right, because if he didn't think he was, he wouldn't be arguing. There's nothing hostile about that. Let's not blow things out of proportion, this can still be civil.

    Maybe its because I dont know him but that isnt how he is coming across to me.

    He is coming across like I am completely and uneducated on the matter.


    But even if he hadnt come across like that to me I still wouldnt take him up on the debate for a variety of reasons.

    One of the biggest is work which I have to go to in a 2 hours time. So I just plain dont have time for an essay debate.

    Two I keep getting embroiled in these long winded debates and then getting cast as the bad guy when MANY times I am not the one who starts them. I frankly am tired of it.

    Third since I have started posting on this thread nearly every single one of my posts has been marked Noob flamebait and so on. It makes me feel i can not present even my own thoughts and feelings on matters without being mocked and while normaly I dont care when its an unending stream of it I ask myself why bother?

    You said yourself dude, there's two sides to the argument. You just happen to support one side and Bain supports the other.


    There's no need to get worked up over this, heck this arguments probably already been done many times.


    So why don't you just respect that both sides have their merits. There's no need to push anyone's buttons over this.

    ...You do realize my issue is how Bain came across to me right?

    Not the 2 sides but rather the way Bain in his response read to me.

    i have no problem with there being 2 sides and people disagreeing my issue is how I have been responded to.


    I may have misunderstood Bain's posting style which i fully admit is possible but please dont act like its the fact someone disagrees with me is my issue here.

    it is 100% how I read Bain's response to me.

    Others are saying Bain wasnt doing that and I will take their word for it because I dont know him so i will accept I misunderstood him and the intent he is trying to get across.

    But my issue is not over someone disagreeing with me.

    NJ Arc: He's actually working on developing power cells for his suit so he doesn't need to feed electricity into it manually. With those completed, he could use his semblance for more advanced applications, such as levitating himself.


    Aqua and Azura Schnee: Both have yet to master summoning with their glyphs, though once they do, each would have her own favored summon. Aqua's favored summon would be a Griffon, while Azura's would be a Beringel. By then, Aqua will also have upgraded her rapier to be able to change into a lance.


    Kin Wukong: As yet, he can turn himself and his clothes invisible. In the future, he could turn nearby allies invisible as well, though the effect would only last as long as they stay near him.

    I apologise, but then I must agree with the others when I say I think you may have misunderstood his style.


    But you are quite right. I thought you had taken issue over his point of view, and I apologise for misinterpreting the situation.

    I can see how an anthropology degree would beat down a degree in actual classic literature (which is to say, my area of specialisation). And sure I can see how reading a couple dozen papers out of the hundreds that are published annually on Shakespeare's work makes you an expert on the subject, a subject which is of course not even your primary area of study. 

    That said, I should probably tone down the hostilities. I mean god knows the sole reason I'm "treating you like that" is because of your own attitude, but that is admittedly no reason for me to escalate things. So I'll just do this instead.


    He through out the whole thing reinforces commonly held beliefs and the political climate of the situation and mocks them HEAVILY.

    In truth, fair Montague, I am too fond,

    And therefore thou mayst think my 'haviour light:

    But trust me, gentleman, I'll prove more true

    Than those that have more cunning to be strange.


    Here's a nice quote from Juliet in which she actively goes against the commonly held belief of the Petrarchan and Courtly Lover, a belief which through poetry had been sustained for centuries even to years long after Shakespeare had lived with poets such as Wordsworth, as while the Petrarchan/Courtly Lover is meant to treat love like a game where the woman acts all hard to get and the man has to woo her, here upon having just accidentally blurted out that she's into Romeo, she pretty much just says to cut to the chase and admits that she's definitely into him, noting that this easy admission doesn't mean that the admission is "light" or carries little weight. 

    As for the political climate we can also use the same quote as here we can see Juliet taking the lead in cutting right to the chase. She of course keeps doing so, such as my favourite quote from the series in which she basically tells Romeo to shut up and stop harping on about the moon and stars and such, all showing how Juliet is flat out the more intelligent and wise character out of the two. But of course this goes heavily against the domestic politics of the era in which women were not quite as well off as the men, typically seen in a lesser light, especially when the religious side of politics was brought into the mix, religious beliefs of the era also bleeding quite nicely into commonly held beliefs too. Of course the whole concept of cuckolds was quite prevalent back in the time, but from Shakespeare's other plays such as Taming of the Shrew (which isn't a sexist play, I'll have you know) which was pretty much written to shoot down the whole concept of cuckolds. Not exactly reinforcing commonly held beliefs and political views in order to try to tear them down, is it?


    I could carry on but honestly, I legitimately don't want to make this into a fight, despite how adamant you seem to be on picking one.

    If that's true, then just let it lie, dude. I don't want to pick a fight, I don't want to create any more hostilities. Never did.

    Still posted my previous post anyway because I spent a while typing it up, not letting that time go to waste like that.

    I am not trying to start a fight at all its coming across to me like you are the one trying to fight ME. And those dozens upon dozens actually is the small number I have read. I love the fact without knowing ANYTHING about my field of study or anything like that beside Anthropology you assume some how I have read less...YEAH. Issue.


    Now I could actually go into this with you but I am not going to and have made this clear earlier

    I dont think the board wants this you said yourself you dont want this I DONT WANT this. Since everyone doesnt want this to happen I am not going to do it.


    Too may times have I been caught up in long winded debates and rather then get sucked into one and be treated like this by you.


    You may think i am running away that I can not debate this you would be wrong. I just plain dont have the desire to go through this it never does anything good on any side. 

    I will be Noobed and mocked for this but I do not care.


    I am not doing this with you.

    Hey, kiddies, calm down. No one cares who's smarter or who knows a play that was written hundreds of years ago "better" than the other. All plays and dramas are open to the audience's interpretation, anyway, so if one of you thought it came off more as a piece of satire, then fine, and if one of you thinks it's a tragedy, then that's fine, too! So please stop bickering like little children and let's get back ON TOPIC. 


    P.S. I've known Bain for years and I know his style of debating, and trust me, he's not trying to be demeaning. He just talks like that, and since you're new here, revaninja, it might just be something you'll have to accept and get used to. Please try to stay civil and if you don't think you can, take the hostilities to PM so the rest of us can enjoy this thread.

    Oh bugger off, trying to position yourself as having the high ground here. You made an honest mistake, picked a fight because of it, I retaliated more than I should have. Own it like I am and move on rather than trying to force having the last word and trying to play the holier-than-thou angle.
