You don't know how sad I was before I started taking it....

I used to have panic attacks at school...in the middle of class...It was miserable
I couldn't DO anything.
Believe me, I tried for YEARS to avoid medication. My parents had to make me take it...and I hated it at first...
But I haven't had an attack in a long time...and I can finally move on with my life...and it means a lot.
I'm not trying to bash you...your welcome to your own thoughts...
But I'm grateful I have it...
I've been unhappy for years and it's finally over...


All he knew was that you couldn't hope to try for the big stuff, like world peace and happiness, but you might just about be able to achieve some tiny deed that'd make the world, in a small way, a better place.

still more hijacking. Good for you, I know that deppresion can be hard, and to alieved of it and believe in yourself is the most gratifying thing in the world. Cliched yes, nice also yes.

Yes back to Psychonauts.

I would gladly like to bring up one of my own pieces of fanfiction as soon as I finish my first chapter. I don't know how long it will be maybe 100 words...maybe 1000.

Another question, a stupid one but a question on topic.

Ahh found it. Always the Same. I read that on oxytocin I believe.

On Zets' page. The two fics under 'Purple Squid'. That's them. =3

(The one you read was written by Zets Darke, not me. Still great though, eh?)

I'm waiting for TyraaRane's awesomeness to come. There's a lot of words in that thing...

I'll be back soon. I have to start on my Psychonauts parody and my Pschonauts continuation.

You're all really a wonderful group and one of my more respected forums I go to.

(Registration was hard to come by on this, luckily I found help. I am grateful to you forum gods)

Yeh...Always The Same is mine. I've been giving her a lot of my RazxLili stuff. She's only got up to chapter two. Chapter three is up on my site if your at all interested. Her site is coming along really well. I can't wait to see what it looks like after she changes it. (x_X The formatting is already much better then mine cause I have crappy free bravenet)

Meh, I've never been a big fan of romance fanfics, but I love the one where the two kids are spying on the camp "that's her eyeless zombie slave!" "...you totally stole that from Scooby Doo."

I'm flattered. Blush!

I think Squidbunnie's comic counts. They called it a fanfic themselves, I think.

A parody of those ideas. God, once I read this thread then went back to play the game I was laughing my butt off. If I was serious about it I would be sure to shoot myself in the head.

Then I would hand it to you guys and let you finish off the twitching body parts.

Visual stimula is fun!

I love the Most Excellent Comic so far however I was a little skeptical of Raz's new look. I despise grown-up character concepts. I know it is only one or two years older but he looks like a teenager. Bleh, I love tiny Raz.

Aron reminds me of Jhonen...

However I do love the shading techniques and the shiny tidbits on all the characters. They did keep the style of the game and while I think that they did a wonderful job so far they need to capture some of the more finer aspects of Milla's character. Such as I'm not getting that feeling of enjoying and being in the moment as Milla usually is. Unless we take into account the memories in the vault. I do agree with her snyopsis on his character page on her though. VERY incitful. Only a few pages so far so that is no worry.

Their description was great, wasn't it? I wish more people would think like that.

Its just too bad they aren't going to make any more pages. The story started off well, no?

I read it in school a few days ago, it was part of Skeleton Crew, I don't read his works much but I really enjoyed it, especially Word Processor of the Gods.

Ah, Skeleton Crew...of course...OOh Words Processor of the Gods is awsome. I also like the Little Sisters of Eluria...course...that story might not be in there...I have a hard time keeping up with what short story goes in what collection. Skeleton Crew was the one with The Mist wasn't it? That one was odd. >.<

Alright sorry to insult your intelligence, I just love that book. I absolutly hated how that movie made Marvin's head big. I always imagined him as a lanky, flat-headed, Futurama/Disney's Treasure Island move-esque robot.

Somehow Aruther managed to look like James from the Disney puppet version of James and the Giant Peach.

I watch too much Disney.

Me too. Atlantis grew on me, I admit... I saw it 5 times over the weekend and didn't get tired of it. Must've been the animation and character designs...

Ready for this? Because this is pretty long. And I am sorry for hijacking this thread.

It's like Treasure Island , only set in space. What an idea! Why didn't anyone think of it sooner? Probably because it's rubbish.

If fans of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic were peeved by the Muppet's attempted reworking a few years ago, then they should definitely hide their eyes now. For this charmless sci-fi caper, Disney have taken it upon themselves to make Jim Hawkins a sulky floppy-haired space-surfing delinquent, and Long John Silver a robot-armed cyborg with a cutesy shape-shifting pink blob where once you'd have expected a parrot. Disney have provided us with some wonderful characters over the years, but you'll struggle to find any in here.

Hawkins gets the opportunity to escape the whining of his suspiciously young-looking single mum when he discovers a star chart leading him to the hidden "loot of a thousand worlds". So, accompanied by a particularly irritating friend of the family going by the name of Dr Doppler, he sets off on a ship captained by an Emma Thompson-voiced captain and a crew of predictably mutinous mutants.

It's all formulaic Disney fare, but from the directors who brought us the triumphs that were Aladdin and The Little Mermaid you expect much more. Yes, the animation is brilliant, and the space theme provides the perfect opportunity for Disney to show off the full whack of its' cartoon capabilities. But we already know Disney can do that. It just wouldn't be one of Walt's flicks if it didn't utilise the latest cutting edge technology, but that's no substitute for good ideas, a sharp script, likable characters and a fun soundtrack. Unfortunately, Treasure Planet struggles to keep its head above water in all four of those areas.

This contrived attempt at recapturing the spirit of Disney adventures of old is to be followed swiftly into cinemas by a sequel to The Jungle Book. Is that the sound of great minds whirring we hear emanating from Disney HQ? Nope, it's the sound of a barrel being scraped.

It's Got: Martin Short as the malfunctioning hyper-annoying robot B.E.N. - the things you see when you don't have a tin-opener.

It Needs: To dump the groaning "adult" soundtrack and inject some proper fun.

Alternatives: Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King

Summary: The quality of the animation never fails to impress, but can't cover up for the fact that this is one of the blandest cartoon tales ever to come out of the Disney studios. Extremely disappointing.

...but Disney seriously needs to cut the cheap sequels. But since they're OBVIOUSLY not making anymore more hand drawn flims, we won't have to worry about that. They're stopping after Cinderella THREE.

Walt Disney is crying in his ice block. D:

It seems Atlantis got some crap reviews, too.

Maybe I'll post one.
