I think things are going to be okay

Postby EdwardTheAwesome on Thu Dec 06, 2012 9:53 pm

So this just happened and I thought I should share it with you. Um, I'm on my way to dinner now, so I guess I'll let you guys know if anything goes wrong there, but...I'm optimistic.


[8:04:06 PM] Joe: ...hi.
[8:04:12 PM] Edward: oh
[8:04:13 PM] Joe: can we talk?
[8:04:14 PM] Edward: hi...
[8:04:18 PM] Edward: i mean
[8:04:26 PM] Edward: you haven't wanted to talk to me for like weeks
[8:04:28 PM] Edward: why now
[8:04:51 PM] Joe: ...i donno.
[8:04:56 PM] Joe: I guess... i've been thinking
[8:05:01 PM] Edward: okay
[8:05:01 PM] Joe: and running the forum is really hard
[8:05:05 PM] Joe: I don't know what i'm doing
[8:05:08 PM] Edward: oh so that's what this is about
[8:05:10 PM] Joe: but mostly I'm thinking
[8:05:12 PM] Joe: no no no
[8:05:30 PM] Joe: Look, edward. I overreacted.
[8:06:04 PM] Edward: okay
[8:06:05 PM] Edward: yes
[8:06:06 PM] Edward: I agree
[8:07:10 PM] Joe: ...I don't really feel comfortable talking about this. this was a bad idea.
[8:07:15 PM] Edward: wait
[8:07:17 PM] Edward: no
[8:07:23 PM] Edward: just tell me
[8:07:40 PM] Joe: ...ed, i don't know how you can trust them
[8:07:51 PM] Joe: i don't know why you listen to them
[8:08:19 PM] Joe: but... that's no reason to treat you like I did
[8:08:40 PM] Edward: I can tell you why I listen to them
[8:08:53 PM] Edward: I don't know that I trust them exactly, but they're...scared
[8:08:58 PM] Edward: The bad decisions they've made?
[8:09:07 PM] Edward: Same reason you've made your bad decisions
[8:09:12 PM] Joe: hey!
[8:09:16 PM] Edward: Like not trusting me :(
[8:09:20 PM] Joe: ...
[8:09:34 PM] Edward: I don't get why you wouldn't even tell me about that letter
[8:09:49 PM] Edward: what did you think I'd do?
[8:10:04 PM] Edward: kick you in the shins or something?
[8:10:14 PM] Joe: i donno. i just knew if you didn't know you wouldn't do anything
[8:10:36 PM] Joe: I guess...
[8:10:50 PM] Joe: I guess I was scared.
[8:10:56 PM] Joe: I hate it when you are right
[8:11:02 PM] Edward: I know you do :P
[8:11:09 PM] Edward: It's okay though
[8:11:16 PM] Edward: I like it enough for both of us
[8:11:25 PM] Edward: (KIDDING)
[8:11:28 PM] Edward: (mostly)
[8:12:11 PM] Edward: how are you doing?
[8:12:28 PM] Edward: is settling back in at your family's going okay?
[8:12:52 PM] Joe: ...yeah. i was expect the cabal to come after me after i revealed I was home...
[8:12:57 PM] Joe: ...I was about to leave again...
[8:13:04 PM] Joe: but my parents wouldn't stop me
[8:13:09 PM] Joe: ...stopped me
[8:13:10 PM] Joe: I mean
[8:13:11 PM] Edward: have they?
[8:13:20 PM] Edward: have you gotten more letters? :(
[8:13:36 PM] Joe: ...i got a few.
[8:13:40 PM] Joe: ...mostly bills.
[8:13:56 PM] Joe: ...but...
[8:14:08 PM] Joe: ...I also got a letter from Don Juan...
[8:14:18 PM] Edward: you did?
[8:14:19 PM] Edward: what did it say?
[8:15:08 PM] Joe: ...it said I should forgive you >.> I never thought I would be given advice by a serial....
[8:15:17 PM] Joe: what is an adulterer who isn't married?
[8:15:21 PM] Joe: an affair...er?
[8:15:24 PM] Joe: whatever
[8:16:19 PM] Joe: but he said some things are more important than others, I guess
[8:16:38 PM] Joe: and it got me thinking... he's still a scumbag, but if a scumbag can tell i'm in the wrong
[8:16:43 PM] Joe: i'm probably in the wrong
[8:17:57 PM] Joe: so, uh, that's probably just made you more sympethetic to the cabal... I still think they need to go, and are villains at heart...
[8:18:06 PM] Joe: but... I mean, how you feel about them isn't important
[8:18:34 PM] Joe: it shouldn't have ever been
[8:18:37 PM] Joe: and I'm sorry
[8:20:00 PM] Joe: ...Ed?
[8:20:42 PM] Edward: I'm sorry, I'm just trying to wrap my mind around all this
[8:20:49 PM] Edward: I didn't even think you'd want to talk to me ever again...
[8:20:58 PM] Joe: I didn't either
[8:21:04 PM] Edward: :(
[8:21:04 PM] Joe: but it looks like I was wrong about that too?
[8:21:08 PM] Edward: ... :)
[8:21:13 PM] Edward: that is a tentative smile, btw
[8:21:32 PM] Edward: and I'm sorry too
[8:21:47 PM] Joe: :)
[8:22:01 PM] Edward: I do think that they are trying
[8:22:02 PM] Edward: the Cabal
[8:22:15 PM] Edward: I think they get that they went about things in the wrong way
[8:22:23 PM] Edward: and I think it's wrong of us to send them back
[8:22:33 PM] Edward: but really?
[8:22:39 PM] Edward: I'm just glad they're not a danger to you
[8:22:48 PM] Edward: they don't seem like they're gonna go after you or anything
[8:23:03 PM] Edward: I mean, they're off chasing echoes now
[8:23:08 PM] Edward: did you see that? how crazy was that
[8:23:11 PM] Joe: ...yeah...
[8:23:41 PM] Joe: ...I think they have to go back, Ed. Mr. A says so.
[8:24:28 PM] Joe: ...but... i donno. We'll see.
[8:24:48 PM] Joe: ...hey... uh,
[8:24:55 PM] Joe: Do you want to come over for dinner tonight? Mom's making flank steak...
[8:25:07 PM] Edward: I think I could go for flank steak
[8:25:11 PM] Joe: really?
[8:25:15 PM] Joe: I mean, cool
[8:25:18 PM] Joe: thats great
[8:25:20 PM] Edward: yeah, I've just been eating like
[8:25:21 PM] Edward: beans
[8:25:26 PM] Joe: thats gross man
[8:25:31 PM] Edward: yeah well
[8:25:31 PM] Joe: i hate beans
[8:25:36 PM] Edward: they're so easy to make
[8:25:44 PM] Edward: I like me some chili
[8:25:48 PM] Edward: anyway
[8:25:56 PM] Edward: have you read the cabal contact thread at all?
[8:26:01 PM] Edward: I understand if you haven't
[8:26:29 PM] Edward: but there are some things Morgan's said that really makes me think we don't have to send them back
[8:26:30 PM] Edward: like
[8:26:39 PM] Edward: what proof has Mr A given us?
[8:26:46 PM] Edward: really?
[8:27:12 PM] Edward: (i just want to talk about this now, if I bring this up at dinner your mom will think I'm crazy)
[8:27:24 PM] Joe: ...i...
[8:27:33 PM] Joe: ...look, I don't have the answers.
[8:28:16 PM] Joe: we'll see. I just want to make sure the world is okay. maybe we will only send back those who want to go... but I don't know.
[8:28:20 PM] Joe: we'll see.
[8:28:32 PM] Joe: I'll have to read the rest of the thread...
[8:30:41 PM] Edward: I just think
[8:30:47 PM] Edward: maybe they're right
[8:30:51 PM] Edward: I mean
[8:30:58 PM] Edward: even Mr A says he doesn't have all the answers
[8:31:30 PM] Edward: i do think we should send back the people who want to go back
[8:31:39 PM] Edward: (and cat...if he wants to go)
[8:31:46 PM] Edward: (does he want to go? i don't even know)
[8:31:47 PM] Joe: I don't want to send back the cat
[8:31:50 PM] Joe: actually
[8:31:53 PM] Edward: he's pretty awesome, right?
[8:31:54 PM] Edward: like
[8:31:57 PM] Edward: let's keep him
[8:32:14 PM] Edward: you already have a cat
[8:32:17 PM] Joe: my cat could use a friend. plus, maybe cheshire would translate for me
[8:32:18 PM] Edward: so he can be mine
[8:32:21 PM] Joe: no
[8:32:23 PM] Edward: right? cat translator
[8:32:26 PM] Joe: my cat
[8:32:28 PM] Edward: no
[8:32:28 PM] Edward: mine
[8:32:35 PM] Edward: WE ARE TORN ASUNDER YET AGAIN
[8:32:38 PM] Edward: no but seriously
[8:32:49 PM] Edward: maybe we can take turns
[8:32:50 PM] Joe: okay fine, look, i'll consider it. it would certainly be nice if they could stay
[8:32:57 PM] Edward: we just have to steal him from new orleans
[8:33:16 PM] Joe: but we are not going to be the ones who decide that
[8:33:24 PM] Joe: we started something, but it's out of our hands
[8:33:28 PM] Edward: who, then? Mr A?
[8:33:34 PM] Edward: oh the forum
[8:33:40 PM] Joe: I mean, the metaguards will
[8:33:49 PM] Edward: well
[8:33:59 PM] Edward: I think a happy solution would be...happiest
[8:34:10 PM] Edward: if we send back those who want to go
[8:34:12 PM] Edward: then seal the wall behind
[8:34:14 PM] Edward: them
[8:34:43 PM] Joe: Ed I feel like you are trying to push a conclusion on me. I will eat all that flank steak myself, I am warning you
[8:34:47 PM] Joe: it's super delicious
[8:34:57 PM] Edward: I'm not trying to push anything!
[8:35:00 PM] Edward: SAVE ME SOME STEAK
[8:35:06 PM] Edward: god I wish i could cook
[8:35:10 PM] Edward: make my own flank steak
[8:35:25 PM] Edward: anyway
[8:35:28 PM] Edward: that's just what i'd do
[8:35:51 PM] Edward: i get that you don't want to make that decision
[8:36:11 PM] Edward: i'm just...
[8:36:19 PM] Edward: i'm glad we're talking again
[8:36:25 PM] Joe: ...I am too.
[8:36:31 PM] Joe: I'll see you tonight?
[8:36:33 PM] Edward: yeah
[8:36:34 PM] Edward: OH
[8:36:35 PM] Edward: IDEA
[8:36:42 PM] Edward: so we get an apartment in the city
[8:36:46 PM] Edward: and SHARE the cat
[8:36:49 PM] Edward: done
[8:36:52 PM] Edward: I win the internet
[8:36:55 PM] Edward: best idea ever
[8:37:23 PM] Edward: joe?

BEST NEWS ALL DAY! :D

Although, you do realise that, being a cat, the cat actually owns two HUMANS rather than you both owning half a cat? ;)

Shhhh he doesn't know enough about cats to know how that works. If he thinks it's the other way around, I might talk him in to getting a cat one day.

I think the term you're looking for is "serial manslut."

But really, I'm glad to see this. I mostly lurk because I feel like I can't keep up. But it felt wrong when you two were fighting, like it was spreading everywhere. I'm hoping this is a sign that we've all turned a corner.

I'm so glad that things seem to be working out between you two again. I know it was a very personal thing to share, and I thank you out of the bottom of my heart for sharing it. It means a lot to us, or at least to me, to know that my friends are, well, friends again.

(And glad we've got our second admin back, too)
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?

I'd use the phrase "serial fornicator", but yours works too, I guess.
Apparently, slightly less weird than most of you.

I was thinking more serial pimp. :D :lol:
The voices in my head tell me that we saved the world. However, they also told me that George Clooney's face is on the dollar bill, so... meh. The voices are more fun, anyway.

That was a really awesome conversation. I, personally, think adulterator works fine, but perhaps General Creepy Person?

I laughed a couple times. Is that okay? :(
