10:54 <@Sonata> Does someone want to look at my current iconset for Unqualiafied and tell me if I'm imagining things with the 'this person looks familiar'?

18:10 < Faceless> Salutations
18:10 < Teceler> hello
18:15 < Faceless> o/
18:16 < Faceless> what are you up to in this fine night?

19:32 < Faceless> hi sonata
19:32 <@Sonata> hi
19:32 < Faceless> how is unqualified shaping up to be?
19:32 <@Sonata> not thought much about it more since last discussed
19:33 <@Sonata> except I'm thinking the magic needs to have some sort of range limit
19:33 <@Sonata> but not a sharp threshold, a gradual harder/costlier with distance
19:33 < Faceless> ok
19:33 < Faceless> ...that world is really starting to make me uncomfortable
19:35 <@Sonata> it's definitely not a good world to live in
19:36 <@Sonata> but is it more/different than that?
19:36 <@Sonata> like
19:36 <@Sonata> there's bad like chelsea, and then there's bad like erocentrism
19:36 < Faceless> well, yes
19:37 <@Sonata> is it that meta/ooc kind of bad?
19:37 <@Sonata> or some other thing
19:37 < Faceless> wait, which is worse? last I heard it wasn't as bad as either?
19:37 < Faceless> more ooc kind of bad
19:37 < Faceless> albeit let me consult what my character think
19:37 < Teceler> Faceless, they're less degrees and more categories
19:37 * Faceless checks
19:37 < Teceler> like
19:37 < Teceler> [words]
19:38 < Faceless> every single one is screaming because of that word, except for Gabe, which is expected
19:38 < Faceless> Teceler, chelsea-bad is goal driven and erocentrism-bad is pleasure driven?
19:38 < Teceler> no
19:39 < Teceler> like, Chelsea-bad is... upsetting, but story-layer? whereas erocentrism was upsetting people in more than 'I care about this character and this is not good for them' way ooc
19:39 < Teceler> that's not quite it but closer at least I hope?
19:41 <@Adelene> Chelsea was Lawful Evil, Erocentrism was a bad failure mode of Chaotic Good.
19:41 < Faceless> huh, I understand what you meant, but Chelsea-bad also made me ooc uncomfortable? albeit not in the same level as erocentrism?
19:43 < Faceless> Adelene, that description is almost too accurate
19:43 <@Adelene> :)
19:43 <@Sonata> the distinction i was trying to get at was
19:44 <@Sonata> chelsea is a creepy character, erocentrism implies a creepy author
19:44 < Faceless> ah
19:44 <@Sonata> bad like mordor vs bad like gor
19:44 < Faceless> gor?
19:45 <@Sonata> if you don't know, treasure your innocence
19:45 <@Adelene> You probably don't want to know. :P
19:45 < Faceless> Sonata, I don't think less of you because of the setting.
19:45 <@Sonata> (will afk soon because food)
19:45 < Faceless> ok
19:45 <@Sonata> anyway
19:45 <@Sonata> my original goal was to try to clarify what you meant by
19:45 < Faceless> it makes me feel ooc bad, but just in about the same way any good-but-painful story makes me feel bad?
19:46 <@Sonata> > ...that world is really starting to make me uncomfortable
19:46 <@Adelene> In unrelated news, my brain continues to be confused at the idea of charaters that are not awake.
19:46 < Faceless> Sonata, I didn't meant that way, hopefully the confusion is cleared?
19:46 <@Sonata> yeah
19:46 <@Sonata> thanks
19:46 <@Sonata> so it's like
19:46 <@Sonata> mmm
19:47 < Faceless> Adelene, what do you mean?
19:47 <@Sonata> 'am irl unhappy because SLAIN WITH THE FEELS'
19:47 -!- Sonata is now known as sonomta
19:47 <@Adelene> We've moved into the Interacting With Elves portion of the Third Vorkosigan thread, and Swiftness Wintercloud promptly took up residence in the back of my head.
19:48 <@Adelene> He and Lurker would actually get along quite well if he wasn't a crazy elf and she wasn't a filthy kobold. ^^
19:48 < Faceless> aaaah, I got busy and distracted with the Worm threads and forgot to read the portalbold thread >.>
19:49 <@Adelene> Well, go do. ^^
19:49 < Andygal> Ade: XD
19:50 < Faceless> I will soon-ish, but first a question: Wintercloud is a MLP pegasus or something?
19:50 <@Adelene> Wintercloud is a Carp elf.
19:50 < Faceless> ah
19:50 < Faceless> Ah
19:50 < Faceless> AAAAAH
19:50 < Faceless> o.o
19:50 < Andygal> xD
19:50 <@Adelene> *giggle* *nod*
19:51 * Faceless offers hugs for lurker
19:51 <@Adelene> Lurker noped out like five minutes before he even showed up. ^^
19:52 < Faceless> ok, gonna read it
19:52 < Faceless> but before, anyone can give sugestions for a book related screen name?
20:11 -!- sonomta is now known as Sonata
20:12 <@Sonata> 'book' is kind of broad, is there anything else about the character to cleverly cross-over with?
20:15 < Faceless> The "Sophia Prime" comes from a very traditionally religious family, is very shy and tends to lack a backbone (the general idea is having her eventually growing one), she /loves/ books and tends to get books/writing related powers (sometimes paper-related powers)
20:16 < Faceless> one of the first things noticeable about her is how she is /very/ tall and makes everything to make herself small and divert attention from herself
20:17 < Faceless> she however does have something of a... good moral center? and won't shy away when another person is getting hurt
20:17 < Faceless> huh, oh, she is Franklyn's mom (Of All Trades)
20:18 < Faceless> sounds like the most important traits so far
20:21 <@Sonata> *brainstorming* ... bible, canon/rod, lex/law
20:22 < Faceless> rod?
20:22 <@Sonata> libra ("book", also suggests scales->justice)
20:22 <@Sonata> "canon" etymologically means something like "measuring rod"
20:26 < Faceless> ah
20:26 < Faceless> hmmm
20:27 < Faceless> I am liking libra for something, maybe if I can find or make a phrase with it
20:31 < Faceless> "free in a book" google translated to "liberum in libro"
20:43 < Faceless> huh, that sounds like best idea I came up so far I tried other combinations, but no other had a nice ring to it
20:44 < Andygal> It's cool.
20:45 < Faceless> thanks ^^
20:45 < Faceless> I don't suppose anyone here knows latim to tell me if the setence is correct?
20:45 < Faceless> sentence*
20:50 <@Sonata> I don't
20:50 <@Sonata> you might try looking up the individual words on wiktionary?
20:52 < Faceless> I think I know someone that does know latim, but he isn't online
21:14 < Andygal> I don't remember enough Latin, sorry.
21:33 < Faceless> thanks, he logged in and is helping
21:35 < Faceless> the current options is "Libera in Libro" or "In Libro Libera" apparently there should be some marks that DW doesn't provide anyway, and I like the ambiguity
21:37 <@Sonata> I think I like In Libro Libera better of those two
21:40 < Faceless> yeah, we are just talking about it
21:40 < Faceless> because it sounds like philosopher's quote
21:40 < Faceless> (it has similar structure to in vino veritas)
21:43 < Andygal> Heh
21:45 * Adelene is quite pleased with Swiftness Wintercloud. ^^
21:46 < Faceless> Oh, right, I should go back to that thread
21:46 < Faceless> why Sebastian Stan's face is so distractable? Inquiring minds want to know
21:47 <@Adelene> hee
21:59 -!- Adelene is now known as Sleepdelene
22:13 < Faceless> Horrible mistake: picturing Wintercloud as Legolas!Orlando Bloom making weird faces at the camera
22:14 <@Sleepdelene> pfffft
22:34 < Andygal> pfffft
22:34 < Faceless> XD
22:35 < Faceless> I know he belongs to a horrible person, but a sloth bear mount is ridiculous cute
22:35 <@Sonata> slothbears, beaverducks, are we sure we're not in atlaverse?
22:37 < Faceless> someone try bending!
22:40 <@Sonata> I can bend my elbows
22:40 < Faceless> the art of jointbending
22:44 < Andygal> pffffthahaha
22:58 < Faceless> I have to go sleep
22:58 < Faceless> good night o/
