To be fair, I never thought the chamber could make nightmares like that...

Well... that's kind of disappointing... c'mon ryan, let's head over to the tavern! Ohhhhhh, ay-de-di-de-di-de-di-de-di-de-di-de-di-de-di!

Well, as far as I understood Thoad's entry, his way of imagining the chamber is... like a chamber. Yours is a helmet. Besides, it was his device, of course it would end up being more "correct" from his side on. I still think you did good with the information you had.

Yeah, I knew I fell short as soon as I saw Crimson's entry, lol >_>
Anyway, I look forward to see the developments from the court case!

And, due to family issues, I'd have become a lot less reliable anyway(aunt has a brain tumor again).

(aunt has a brain tumor again).

Oh god! I'm sorry alt. That must be terrible to know :c. Worse than my mom's pancreatitis, considering that a brain tumor is well... yeah.

Oh, she must have a surgery to cut down on it every 10 years. Apparently, the tissue the doctors need to cut into can't take any more surgeries, so they need to use radiation now. They can't completely cut it out since it's attached to the wall of her carotid artery, and it's pushing on the part of her brain that controls her sight. She's already legally blind in one eye~

It's odd how you seem so... calm about it?

Well it's not like we can see his face and hear his tone of voice when he says this... 90% of communication is body language.

Possum got it . . . .

Either way, the tumor's been troubling her since she was 4, and she's still alive in her mid-40s, so as long as the radiation works, she'll be okay.

That makes me happy and sad at the same time...

That just makes me sad... But I realize you probably don't want to hear about that. People who get pitied too much often come to resent those who pity...

Thanks, cen.

And, would it be an issue if I wrote the response from a third-person perspective? I have a hilarious idea that wouldn't work to as good of an effect in 1st person.

OR, how about first person from someone else's perspective, beside Manta's?

*Reads every post thoad has ever written*

You're about a 42/99 on the D-bag scale. Not too shabby.

Well, considering the consistency, I would say no, but in the matter of good story telling, go ahead. It's not like it won't fit in, people have been writing 3rd person from the beginning.
OR, how about first person from someone else's perspective, beside Manta's?

If you can pull it off believable, I doubt it would hurt (if you are going to use one of the contestants, you should probably ask permission first). I would like to see how the result would be.

On another note, I am still amused by the people who use "victestants" in their entries. Not that you should stop, or anything, I am just amused that a made up word describing exactly what they are would be used by the people going through it.

Alt: sorry to hear that. Your aunt's story sounds quite unusual, even speaking in terms of brain tumours. On the bright side, at least she doesn't have a glioblastoma.

I am just amused that a made up word describing exactly what they are would be used by the people going through it.


Yes, I noticed this too. Maybe it might end up being used in future OCTs... you should probably reserve rights to the word Cen, might make a bit of money lol.

btw, email your responses to waomod@yahoo.com as usual, kthnx!
