I'm sure you do a lot better than that - with words!

Well I must say, (and it might be the real third reason) the blue robe really highlights your soft yellow-gold fur Dev.

Devon has fur?! Should'nt be so surprised. I've heard that's how it starts to those that scoff at the legend surrounding the village of the little people.

First they start getting real furry and then......I can't continue. It's too horrifying!

If only someone knew a way to stop the curse you might have a chance. Sad, so sad.

Hmmm, have you reached enlightenment?

If so I'd like to hear your mp3 player in hopes of doing the same

Not yet, though I do have a character who can willingly transcend into the afterlife and back.

Ooo I'd love to read a story about that Devon. Is the story similar to the movie "Constantine?"

I don't get it. People always have to put it so fancifully. Just say

"who can die and come back to life".

Wow that sounded so lazy

It could've been worst. He could've said "who can transcend the bounds of morality"

Constantine was awesome. Simple as that.

And Devon: I think it's because you needed more time for your top-secret CIA/Ninja life.

The portrayal of Gabriel was epic.

And I concur. Devon's ninja name is Eclectic Python of the Blind Python

Twas epic, must agree.

Yes, and her CIA name is Alyson Jones. One is simple while the other is slightly confusing.

Yea, you don't have chewing license, Winter!

I don't get it. People always have to put it so fancifully. Just say

"who can die and come back to life".
But he doesn't die. He releases his soul into the afterlife. His body's still sitting on the bed, alive as ever, SW. So, no. Sebastian doesn't die and come back to life. Transcendence, in his case, is something different.

And Devon: I think it's because you needed more time for your top-secret CIA/Ninja life.
Yes!

It could've been worst. He could've said "who can transcend the bounds of morality"
Oops I meant MORTALITY
Hahahahaha! Hmm. Funny thing is, this character truly believes he's extremely morally upright, too. Lol.

Devon's ninja name is Eclectic Python of the Blind Python
her CIA name is Alyson Jones.
Really? Lol.

So what is it Devon?
What is what, W.K.? All of the reasons or just the third reason?

Friend of yours?
Yes.

Ooo I'd love to read a story about that Devon. Is the story similar to the movie "Constantine?"
Not in the slightest. Lol. And that story's out being workshopped right now. It was posted here on WB for a little while, though I'd removed it for reasons unknown even to myself. Nah, I just wanted to remove it.

You can't go into the afterlife without being dead.

All this fancy talk and I have discovered what everyone is talking about. And it's legit.

When you transcend, you fake to die and fool the guards at death's gate.

The End.

Can't you open your mind to other possibilities, especially when it comes to a fantasy story? Not everything needs to be explained away through fact. That would be terribly boring. His mother was an angel, for goodness sake! Do you think I believe that could happen? No, not really. But it's fun to imagine and play with.

So, therefore, I'm not changing how my character is, despite any factual stuff that's brought up. It's a fantasy story, SW. Fantasy. The fantastic elements that make up a story are testing the limits of one's imagination?

Sheesh.

Meh. Or have I just read your post incorrectly and we're now in agreement? I can't even tell! Lol.

When you transcend, you fake to die and fool the guards at death's gate.
Does this mean we're in agreement, then?

(No, I'm not terribly upset, SW. Don't worry. )

Don't mind my rant. I like ranting at you. It's fun.

It was a joke.

But still, wouldn't it be funny if all this life transcending and all turned out to be making a fool of death?

*starts laughing*
Hahaha...

Hahaha...

Haha-
*dies*

Wow, Dev, 101 thanks! Good number for a dog to have--better if you happen to be a dalmatian, but I"m sure it's flexible.
