ART is the REAL magic. I love it. You had some great insight and it was awesome to hear you talk about your race and Mizahar.

Aw, thanks ^_^

I feel like "ART is the REAL magic" would be a popular bumper sticker in Abura...

Thanks for answering all those questions! I was nodding and talking to you the whole time haha. And laughing. :P

I'm so excited to see what you're going to be doing with Abura, and I'll be checking the Akvatari lore on the daily. ;)

As for the ideal Akvatari question, I think of it more like... Is there a sort of "end goal" for Akvatari? Like Akalak are all about discipline, Benshira about purity, do Akvatari have something like that?

Thanks again!

"There's probably some weird 3-D akvatari ballet that involves flying". If there isn't an Akvatari ballet hall in Abura I might be crushed.

You said my name right, which seriously thrilled me to bits. No more Irr-eer-ee or Irr-rrrr-rree.

I hope you can find something you're proud of writing too. I think it's a struggle for anyone who commits to a long term writing project, be it something like Miz or a standalone novel. You want to leave a mark or feel some level of progress is occurring. When you don't make progress or you go backwards it's super difficult to deal with.

While I haven't read any of the authors you mentioned, the writing style you talked about reminded me of Waiting for Godot. I was assigned a project to discuss it in senior year of high school. I read it once and I was convinced I missed something. The dialogue was atrocious, for one. I remember counting the number of words in this particularly lengthy run on sentence. With my word count and questions in hand, I confronted my teacher. I asked her why such a silly thing got popular. I argued that it didn't have a plot or a set. The gibberish was awful and there was no happy ending. There wasn't really an ending at all. She smiled at me and told me that all those things were the point. I was so annoyed, but the play has grown on me since then. I think it takes a certain frame of mind to enjoy that style of writing. Or maybe it's experience? Who knows.

Thanks for talking about all the interesting stuff! I look forward to future vlogs!

Oh hey, do the questions!

What is your favorite word?
What is your least favorite word?
What turns you on?
What turns you off?
What sound or noise do you love?
What sound or noise do you hate?
What is your favorite curse word?
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
What profession would you not like to do?
If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?
How much do you love lasagne?

For clarification what turns you on did at one time just mean something you really liked. The sexual connotation didn't come till later so feel free to keep your answer PG-13 :P

I apologize in advance for trying to hypnotise your character. I promise I won't do anything mean to them. I just can't help myself. I'm an addict.

Thanks for the kind words, folks!

Any other questions? I think I'm going to do another one of these today while I'm home from work because of the snow, so now's your chance to ask me stuff ^_~

What are your thoughts on Pycons?
Is there a darker more violent subset of the Butterseals?
And one I can't resist asking: Why the cosmic joke of the Flying Human Seal Mermaids?

Graders Please Note :
As Ball is getting closer and closer to maxing out Pyken as a skill, I would like to request that in places where Ball is not doing enough to constitute Pyken XP if Pyken technique lores could be issued instead.

Examples of proper XP level for Pyken would be: Ball developing or refining his technique by adding new thing against an actual moving target, not a dummy.

The use of basic skills alone are not enough to accomplish XP at Ball's current level of Pyken.

Thank you.
