The Mirkwood Elven Alliance - Quest in the Pony in the works

The varied peoples of Middle-earth at times found unity in their pursuits, and all too often experienced deep rifts. Engage in lively conversations as we banter about the differences between the Alliances, and recruit for our People as well. Remember, keep it friendly.

LOL! That was very very cute!
All school systems get worse as the time goes by, this is another thing I've noticed. Like the 3 year bachelors degree change from the usual 4 we had a few years ago, it was silly, even though they spoke of making the system compatible with other European systems, they are all different and as much as I have gathered, half have 3 years and half have 4. So all in all they changed the bachelors degree to some overall higher education which does not give you any specific skills of the subject you're majoring in. I am so glad that when I went to the uni, we had the 4+2 system! :)

Phantom of the Opera, among other things

Postby Alassemiire_Arineel » Mon Jun 11, 2007 7:57 pm

Ah! Yes, 4-week vacations for employees are heard of here in the U.S. :)

Really? 3-year degrees? Our system seems to be going the other way - 5-year degrees.

I was introduced to the Phantom of the Opera recently, and i absolutely love it!

So when is our RP supposed to get started?

I am here as well. Oh, and if you are bored, you might want to check out my latest dress: 20s flapper style! click

I haven't posted in here since the 4th of May? That should be a crime! :shock: :whistle:

I've seen Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End a total of three times.. I adore it! The ending and the scene after the credits get me every time. I love Will and Elizabeth. :love:

Hey Arineel, long time no see! I had no idea you were the same age as me! I'll be starting college in the fall as well. And you were homeschooled too? Awesome. 8)

I need to take some time to read some of the old Mirkwood RP posts! I don't have any of them saved on my computer, but I do have a bookmark to the previous thread, which was started in 2003. I can't believe how long ago that was! It would be amusing to see how my writing style has evolved since then. If it has at all. :rofl:

And I am doing well! Beth has two emails that I know of: bethrael7@yahoo.com, which is his really old email, and a new one at gmail, bethrael@gmail.com. I'd use the gmail one, as he emails me with that and I'm pretty sure he uses it more often.

And yes, we are still together! We just celebrated the 2 year anniversary of the day we met (in real life), on the 20th. Then of course our relationship started online, and in October it'll be 5 years! It's astonishing how time passes so quickly. At least, that's how it seems to me.

Shorty, I LOVE icanhascheezburger! :yippie:

Aurelin, lovely dresses and outfits, as always. ;) :D

Well, as far as my life goes, I'm finally finished with High School.. my last day was May 31st, and I graduated with a 4.0 GPA (grade point average), which means straight A's! I got my Diploma earlier this month, and when I did it really hit me, "Wow, High School is over!"

I've been hunting for a summer job all month, but I haven't heard from any of the places I've applied for yet. I have a long list I'm going down of potential places to work, though, so hopefully something will happen soon!

As for college, I'll be doing my freshman year online (although I'm not yet sure which online college I'll be doing it through.. yeaaah), and after that I hope to go to a University. I also changed my mind about my major again - what I really want to do is become a writer, so I will most likely be majoring in English/Language Arts, or another major related to writing.. it depends. I have to figure out what my options are. Also, I want my minor to be History of some sort. :D

:bookworm:

Also, Arineel had a good question.. when are we starting the RP? I think we should start ASAP, as the summer is already starting to fly by, and I really miss RPing.

Hey Aurelin! :hihi: Thanks! :hug:

That's awesome about the RP, now we've just got to get Shorty, Robin, Arineel, and Tanwen (though I haven't seen her in quite a while) over here, and we'll be set, I think! :)

*bounces in*

Hi, can I join? Clerics and muscians as groups please.

Oh, and I'm not sure if anyone remembers me but I was once part of the Mirkwood Elven Alliance...though it may have been quite some time ago. I believe, due to the number of "Legolases" that I was known as Ringelf or Ringy.

Hey Ringelf! :hihi: I definitely remember you. Welcome back to Mirkwood! :D

So, Aurelin and Shorty? Should we email Robin, Tanwen, and Arineel about the RP? What do you think? I can ask Beth to come back and post. :)

Sure, that sounds good! :) If we do not do it now, we'll never get the RP started ;). Although I must warn you beforehand that next week will be pretty crazy for me...just in case, if things start moving at Shadowfax-speed suddenly, so you'll know I have not disappeared somewhere.

Whoo! TORC is finally back! I'm so glad Jon fixed everything. :yippie: :TORC:

Yes, I agree! Do you have everyone's emails? I think I've forgotten all but Robin's, since she emailed me a while back and I have it saved. It's fine if you're a bit busy! I've been really busy lately, and most likely won't be around from the 1st to the 3rd of August. ;)

Ok, let me check the address-book of my hotmail account:
I have an add for Alassemiire and then yours and Shorty's but that is all :o.

Indeed, thanks to Jon for getting us back up and running! I was reminded of the old times when the forums collapsed more often and how everyone was really freaked out...I was not a lot less upset this time around either.

Hi Ringie, I remember you too! it has been a long time. Sorry I've been gone but I was out of state, and then Torc was gone. Has anything started yet? If I'm gone for a while email me. I don't know if you know my new email at Gmail, if you haven't i'll post it, just let me know.

Hi Ringy! I'm not sure if I remember you or not, but either way, welcome back!

I start school Aug. 16, so be ye all warned. I will try to at least get on weekends, though. The sooner we can start the RP, the better! Oh, my e-mail hasn't changed, btw, so what is in the council address book should be correct.

Hullo!

I haven't been here in aaaages, and I'm afraid I won't be able to resume regular posting yet. I'm finishing up high school and my final exams are in October/November, but after that I'm free, and I'll try to be back here regularly. I miss the RP-ing. :(

I've been having a really stressful, rough time over the past few months, but it'll all be over soon.

Now I have to go and write an essay for English.

Toodles!

Lol Arineel! I am too!
let me tell you all how silly i am. I couldn't log on to the ezboards for the longest time, because I thought my password was something other than what it was. and i was convinced I had it right, but my computer's been remembering it for so long that I had no idea how to get back on. BE CAREFUL TELLING YOUR COMPUTER TO REMEMBER!!!!!!!! or you'll end up like me... running outside to find something that it's ok to break....lol
Anyway the reason I said that whole story was that i was trying (and have now succeeded) to start a new thread in the council forum. So if those of you who are in the council could go check it out that'd be great.
anyway we should really get stuff started... my fingers are telling me they want rp

Hiya all! :)
I replied to the post, Shorty! :) LOL about the password mess, yep, I had trouble with the council password a few months ago since I had not used it for about a year and I had not allowed my compy to remember it either ;). Thank the stars for e-mails with such important information.

Enjoy your time at the college, you two! :D

Heyla everyone! :hihi: It's been nearly three months since I last posted, I can't believe it. :shock:

Aurelin (and everyone else for that matter), do you have my new email? I've switched to gmail, so now you can email me at Linteannaiel@gmail.com.

Shorty, I posted in your thread in the Council Forum! :horse:

Tanwen, I hope you'll have more time for TORC soon! I really miss the RPing too. Good luck with finishing high school (that is, if you're still in high school.. July was quite a while ago), I know what that's like!

I haven't begun my online college courses yet, but I will be somewhere within the next two months, probably in December when the new semester starts. I miss being in school and studying so much, it's not even funny!

:bookworm:

Let's hope we can get the RP going very soon. :D ;)

Nope, Lin, I had the old yahoo one. Thanks, I updated my contacts list! :)

I hope everyone's school semesters are going well (or shall, in Lin's case :P)! Work's been thankfully slow for me, well, compared to what it shall become in a month or month-and-a-half. I so so behind in my reading - the pile of books at hope that I want to read keeps growing - but anime and movies are going well enough.
Writing too...

Helloooooo?
*echoes back at Tanwen*
Well, I finished my exams finally. In Australia (all states here, I think) we finish High School in November, Lin. And next month I find out if my marks are high enough for Law.
And so... If the thread and RP still sort of exists.... I'm ready to start participating again. :)
It's basically the only writing I'll be doing probably (isn't it amazing how one crushing speech from a high school teacher can totally change your views on yourself?)
So..... Is anybody there? :?

I knew I should've checked this thread sooner! No one posted for practically a month after Aurelin, so I haven't bothered for a while. ;)

Tanwen, congrats on finishing exams! The RP thread does indeed exist, and if everyone's up for it, I'd love to get started. I think we're all about ready, yes? :D

Robin, don't worry! You haven't caused any problems, because we've yet to begin. The time has come to get going, I think. 8)

Lin- I still have all my notes for the quest... suprisingly enough that same notebook kept poping up in my room over this last year or so since I first jotted that info down. :bookworm:


Ohh and back inthe spring my mommy preordered a life sized cut out of Capt. Jack from the third movie. So now I have my Jack living in my bedroom. He really came in handy when i was left alone for a entyre week end it was to quiet and lonly.
