[06:11] -- abyssalArrow [AA] began pestering arcaneArtisan [AA] at 18:11 --
[06:11] AA: Hello.
[06:11] AA: Hi.
[06:12] AA: We both have the same initials for our chumhandles!
[06:12] AA: Yes, I thought it was interesting.
[06:12] AA: Of all the possible combinations, we chose the same ones.
[06:13] AA: I am Kate.
[06:14] AA: I am Sami.
[06:14] AA: Silly name, I know.
[06:14] AA: My dad's got some weird tastes sometimes.
[06:15] AA: Kate's a much better name.
[06:15] AA: Sami, that isn't even a shortening?
[06:15] AA: You would think!
[06:16] AA: It's like he just decided "I'm going to give her a four letter name come hell or high water!"
[06:16] AA: Oops. Sorry for the profanity. He was in the army. It happens.
[06:16] AA: Hmmm. Profanity does not bother me.
[06:17] AA: Oh. Good then.
[06:20] AA: So what sorts of things are you into, Kate?
[06:22] AA: My hobbies are narrow and refined.
[06:22] AA: I mostly enjoy hunting and taxidermy.
[06:22] AA: That is not what I expected!
[06:23] AA: How did you get into that sort of thing?
[06:23] AA: It is a fine art. I have learned much about the anatomies of various creatures solely through meticulous dissection.
[06:24] AA: Oh! I like fine arts! I've never done one that involves dissection before though...
[06:26] AA: So what do you do, just disect them and sew them back together again?
[06:26] AA: In some sort of ~~dynamic pose~~?
[06:27] AA: A bit more complicated than that.
[06:27] AA: It requires at least two corpses. I take parts of one and parts of the other, and piece them together.
[06:28] AA: Oh, like a platypus!
[06:28] AA: Some think it grotesque, but I can create things that life has never seen.
[06:29] AA: Sort of. My personal favorite I finished just yesterday. It is a spider with a crow's head and wings.
[06:29] AA: That sounds....terrifying.
[06:30] AA: Kind of cool, too, though! Like those creepy paintings by Hiero...hero...
[06:30] AA: ...by Bosch!
[06:31] AA: A bit, yes, but much more real.
[06:31] AA: And much more dangerous.
[06:31] AA: What do you even call something like that?
[06:31] AA: Gaff Taxidermy.
[06:32] AA: Oh, you mean that's what the thing you do is called. That's cool, but I meant what do you call that weird spider crow thing?
[06:32] AA: Oh.
[06:33] AA: Crowrantula is the working title.
[06:33] AA: I've been feeling a bit uninspired lately, however.
[06:33] AA: Well I think Crowantula is going to be in my nightmares tonight, if it helps!
[06:33] AA: Always a pleasure to invade dreams.
[06:34] AA: What about yourself?
[06:34] AA: I can't really stick to any one thing for too long.
[06:34] AA: I start drawing, then I get bored and start painting, then I get bored and try sculpting...
[06:35] AA: ...but somehow I always seem to get charcoal in my hair. I don't even remember the last time I used charcoal!
[06:36] AA: That's odd.
[06:37] AA: Perhaps you should avoid working near a fireplace?
[06:37] AA: Haha. =P
[06:37] AA: I think we've got the opposite problems though! You're feeling under-inspired and I've got too much!
[06:38] AA: Let's trade! I'll give you some of my inspiration for some of your focus!
[06:38] AA: j/k
[06:38] AA: Hmmm.
[06:39] AA: Man, you ever think about what it would be like if one of your "gaff taxidermy" creations were alive?
[06:39] AA: Perhaps I am just thinking about what one of my friends said earlier.
[06:39] AA: Wjat
[06:39] AA: What's that?
[06:39] AA: Oh how wonderful would that be...
[06:39] AA: Truely the most wonderous of all things.
[06:39] AA: "Wonderful" is not the word I would use for a living breathing crowantula!
[06:40] AA: I think I would start with words like "AAAAAAAAH!" and finish up with more profanity.
[06:40] AA: Not just the crowrantula... but the mermice and the jackelopes and the Cythons!
[06:40] AA: Mermice? Like....underwater mice?
[06:41] AA: That'd be pretty cute I guess. Do they have little fishie tails?
[06:41] AA: They would be, if they were alive.
[06:41] AA: Oh, yeah. I guess the stuffed ones would probably get ruined if they were soaked, huh?
[06:42] AA: What did your friend say earlier that's got you thinking?
[06:42] AA: Oh.
[06:43] AA: He seems to be obsessed with the supposed coming apocolypse.
[06:43] AA: Haha. I've seen a lot of people like that lately, too!
[06:44] AA: How did he say it was going to end?
[06:44] AA: He didn't say for certain, but he thinks something like nukes or meteors would be a boring way to go.
[06:44] AA: Not tragic enough.
[06:45] -- arcaneArtisan [AA] rolls her eyes. --
[06:45] AA: Yeah, we could always use more tragedy!
[06:46] AA: It is what fulfills him.
[06:46] AA: It is quite admirable, I think.
[06:46] AA: Oh well. Takes all kinds I guess.
[06:46] AA: Tragedy's great when it's in stories, but I don't think the real world needs any more of it!
[06:47] AA: I think that those who thrive in tragedy will have the best insights on how to deal with it.
[06:48] AA: I guess you're right. I don't deal with tragedy all that well. Not that I've had many. But I cried for weeks when Bambi's mother died.
[06:48] AA: I was like six years old then though.
[06:49] AA: I could probably get by with only an hour or two now!
[06:49] AA: Hmm. Death is an interesting thing.
[06:50] AA: I....guess?
[06:50] AA: Someone who dies has all the doors closed for them, but others have many opened.
[06:50] AA: I guess that's true. If Rembrandt were still around, no one would be able to make much of a splash as an artist anymore!
[06:50] AA: I hadn't even thought of that.
[06:51] AA: I was thinking more along the lines of when I kill bambi's mother every few months and I can have food.
[06:52] AA: Oh man. I know that's where food comes from but I really don't like to think of it.
[06:52] AA: Makes me so sad.
[06:52] AA: Mabe I could just live on twinkies for the rest of my life. I'm pretty sure nothing natural was ever involved in a twinkie!
[06:53] AA: Hmmm.
[06:53] AA: Such foods are awful for you.
[06:53] AA: Yeah.
[06:54] AA: But delicious!
[06:54] AA: I disagree.
[06:54] AA: Meat is the greatest of foods.
[06:55] AA: Well you are entitled to your opinion, even if it is WRONG WRONG WRONG. ;D
[06:56] AA: Hmmm.
[06:56] AA: We will see.
[07:00] AA: You must taste of my fresh kills.
[07:00] AA: Oh, dear. Must I?
[07:01] AA: Indeed you must.
[07:01] AA: Else you have not lived.
[07:01] AA: T_T
[07:02] AA: Trust me.
[07:03] AA: We're probably a million miles away from each other anyway. So I'm pretty sure any "kills" you were able to send me wouldn't be very fresh.
[07:03] AA: I'll tell you what--if we ever meet in person, I promise to try some of your "fresh kills."
[07:04] AA: *cough*nevergonnahappen*cough* ;P
[07:05] AA: I wouldn't be so sure.
[07:05] AA: A friend of mine gave me an exotic modus that you can apparently send long distances to transport items.
[07:05] AA: Once I figure out how to work it, I may actually be able to send you some venison.
[07:06] AA: Damn those convenient sylladexes!
[07:07] AA: I haven't gotten it yet, his internet speed is rather slow.
[07:07] AA: Oh. Sounds like a lucky break for me~!
[07:07] AA: Perhaps.
[07:10] AA: Oh man. The Colonel is yelling at me for sneaking twinkies before "Lights Out." I think I've gotta go.
[07:11] AA: But I had fun talking to you! You're cool, even if you are a bit creepy. Mind if I add you to my chumroll?
[07:11] AA: Too late, already added~! ;)
[07:12] AA: Oh. Sorry.
[07:12] AA: I stepped away for a moment.
[07:12] AA: I enjoyed talking to you.
[07:12] AA: It's okay.
[07:12] AA: Me too. We have to do this again sometime.
[07:12] AA: Surely.
[07:12] AA: Hopefully some time you HAVEN'T got that fetch modus. =P
[07:13] AA: I'll keep that in mind.
[07:13] AA: Later, "Other AA."
[07:13] AA: Later.
