  1. <p>Certainly. I found your posts in the "ERP as a higher form" thread to be among the slim few that I actually agreed with philosophically. Your comments in many respects mirrored the manner in which I choose to pursue Role-Playing. I'm always interested in the prospect of meeting like-minded RPers -- particularly ones who are eloquent with language, which you clearly are.</p>

  2. <p>So as not to derail the thread...</p>

    <p>I'm not in-game much lately, but I'm intrigued by your intrigue. Can you elaborate?</p>

  3. No. Still intrigued to the point that I want to meet you in-game, after reading your contributions, here. Okay, done now. - Larrendias
  4. As one who has had to suffer through the regimented and pretentious world of so-called "formal" Creative Writing, I will first offer the following dollop of acumen for your consideration. Do not be so swift, in your passion for this fledgling mode of art, to rush out into the world and define yourselves. Words like 'form' and 'style' typically wind up as nothing more than the literal gang rape of creativity and free expression within a given outlet of passion such as writing. There is very likely not a single academian of 'repute' (you will note that I do not invoke that word fondly) that would think any one of you more than simple, 'low-brow' writers of smut. They would consider nearly everything that any of you have penned as little more than a repetitious regurgitation from within the conventions of an established and tired genre ghetto. Stop treating each other as they would treat you. Their modes of art have become sickly, pretentious and contemptuous. They have quite literally soiled their pond. To the specific points that have been raised, I offer the following opinions: 1.) No 'form' of art is 'higher' than any other. You would be best served to strike that notion from your mind. 2.) Erotic depiction and imagery has been ingrained within the artistic expression of humanity since some of the earliest scrawlings on cave walls. If you think to strike it down, or even that you are right to do so, you are being foolish. There are extremists posting here on both sides of this issue. Try to show a little bit more respect for your peers, lest you further derail to become squabbling pockets of militarized elitists. - Larrendias
