  1. can't believe we get a visual novel about seducing dragons. bless this site
  2. Questions regarding importance are inherently flawed because they rely on gauging an unobjectifiable concept that was created from a human perspective. It's fundamentally impossible to truly know the perspective of other animals since we only have experience as humans (at least I hope we all do). Even though we see that other species seem to prefer their own kind, we can't say with certainty that they do so because they consciously think themselves to be more important. For example, we can say that lions seem to focus on their own kind since they hunt for their prides and offspring while they brutalize and kill other species without hesitation. We can guess that they inherently see themselves as more important, or they are incapable of seeing other species as anything but pieces of meat. Maybe it's just something we can't understand since they only have experience with lions, and we only have experience as humans. Because of our limits, as far as we know, "importance" is a concept created by us. It doesn't exist beyond our biased understanding of it. Reality doesn't revolve around humanity's ideals or the English language. The question of this thread is fundamentally flawed. Since importance is such a subjective word, we can twist it however we want to create our own criteria for judging it. Since we're talking about nature, it's important to remember that nature is not a "mother", an ideal state of being, or a statue of purity-these are all things we humans have come up with to define it. Nature does not uphold standards of traditionalism, righteousness, or importance. It is not a personality, it simply is. As others in this thread have stated, humans are animals. We are not that different from them. There is no such thing as a species that is more evolved/advanced than others; evolution does not have a goal. Humans have evolved in different conditions. Humans do not own the planet. Most species that have ever existed are already extinct, and humans have a relatively small role in this. Humans are not powerful and wise enough to control the planet or destroy it. We aren't that influential. It simply changes. All species will be killed of whether humans get involved or not. Even then, new life will probably take over anyways. We aren't getting out of the natural balance. Such a balance is another romantic ideal created by humans. Animals that change the environment to benefit their own kinds (as well as some others) are pretty much standard. tldr: the question of which is more important is a misunderstanding of nature

  5. " A garland is a decorative wreath or cord (typically used at festive occasions) which can be hung round a person's neck or on inanimate objects like Christmas trees. Originally garlands were made of flowers or leaves. " >wreath Woah i totally called it im the best everybody worship me ...wait are the "mana berries" actual berries or just pieces of flesh falling off the dragon?
  6. Reading through all my old descriptions is currently making me regret my entire life.
  7. You're pretty good. One thing to work on is making cleaner lines. On some of your more detailed drawings, it's a little hard to make out certain features (mostly on hair/clothing) because of how jagged the lines are. Actually, I have no idea what I'm talking about, I haven't drawn anything for a long time so I'm probably not the best source of advice on this subject. Otherwise, yeah, ur pretty gud
  8. Actually, I AM a dragon, and I'm currently collecting reasons to live.
  9. I realize that someone probably came up with this before but i wouldnt know for sure because i dont feel like reading through 29 pages of this topic but the qt bb dragons are like wreaths because of their green fur but with snow on them because theyre also white idk but wreaths arent warm especially when theres snow on them someone please save me from eternal suffering

    Nonfiction

    Most of the threads here are for discussing fictional works, so I thought a general thread for nonfiction would be pretty spicy. Talk about any kind of nonfiction you're reading (art, science, self-help, how-to's, spirituality, politics, history, etc) Just got some ebooks for Havelock Ellis' Psychology of Sex series, which I'll probably start tomorrow.
  11. I tried out Fuuka the other day because the promotional art looked cool. It turned out to be really stupid, so I dropped it. The cool art was a lie, too. A random number generator convinced me to check out Occultic;Nine. It's really stupid. Not as stupid as Fuuka, mind you; it does have some merit (lively animation and the possibility of some interesting thematic concepts). Not sure what the japs find so funny about character screaming all the time. Just finished SAO 2's Excalibur arc with the help of a Youtuber's commentary. I hate this show so much that I receive a carnal satisfaction from tearing it apart as I watch it. There is no bliss like the bliss of hatred. Fortunately, I'm currently watching one good show to lift me away from all the bad: Glass Mask, a truly fascinating interpretation of the art of acting and drama.
  12. the ap was lit today fam https://dragcave.net/lineage/bu9OG https://dragcave.net/lineage/cB0KJ https://dragcave.net/lineage/Xq1xY https://dragcave.net/lineage/H0KaL https://dragcave.net/lineage/WNDTP https://dragcave.net/lineage/kIyhH
  13. The Xenowyrms, since they were released on my birthday.
  14. I haven't read much dystopia, but I want to. Didn't like The Giver tbh
  15. I'm feeling kinda salty because my school didn't allow me to enter a story that I'd been working on for a few months into a writing contest because it was too "weird" and "negative".
  16. wooo the adults actually look pretty cute
  17. happy halloween i suppose ~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~
  18. Okay, so I'm not very good with people. I'm always too scared to start conversations (and keep them going), and socializing genuinely stresses me out. Because of this, I tend to ignore what's going on around me to preserve my energy, but when the focus of people's attention goes to me (such as if it's my turn to do something), I often freak out and act rashly, resulting in me committing very stupid and embarrassing mistakes almost every day. These mistakes encourage others to spread painful rumors about me to damage my reputation. As you may know, rumor-spreading people tend to be quite aggressive. However, I've recently been thinking of taking back my standing in the social order. My idea is to sort of mimic the rumor-spreading people by being domineering. Is this a good idea?
  19. Catherine, about to be chased by the Immoral Beast.
  20. When people hate a song only because it's popular. When people brag about their tastes. I have a strong hatred for love songs. Can't people find something else to sing about for once?
  21. Holy crap, a release on my birthday? The eggs look so pretty!
  22. Make a wish, see for yourself... Has anyone ever heard of this website? I found it while randomly surfing the Internet one day. Has anyone ever tried it out? Do you want to try? If so, then you might make yourself familiar with this image... http://www.real-wishes.com/wish/image.html
  23. I got an Anagallis for this one.
  24. Is it just me...or does it look like they have cat tails?
