How sure are you that the thread title and her response didn't match more closely in her language? Many languages have completely different structures from one another, after all.

I dunno but I thought the people who run this place were supposed to be good at their job?

pelinya if i've been yelling at the wrong person i'm sorry

Permalink

I'm sorry, I thought my response was clear enough. I don't understand what the fuss is about.

 

If it will make you happy, fine, I use she/her pronouns.

Permalink

there see was that so hard? hi! nice to meet you

Permalink

Hello; I'm Daisy, Lord Pradnakt's - roommate, I suppose. We both take she/her pronouns.

Permalink

How did you come to be roommates? Also what makes Lord Pradnakt a lord?

Permalink

That's a somewhat complicated story, but she brought me with her when she left her master; the title is traditional for Sith. (More powerful Sith take the title 'Darth'.)

Permalink

So you were friends of some kind before this leavetaking? By master do you mean in the slaveowner sense or the master/apprentice sense?

Permalink

She was his apprentice; the situation between us was complicated but friends is a good-enough way of putting it - I'm a droid, and droids aren't generally recognized as people here, so the usual social conventions aren't generally available to us; they often wouldn't apply anyway.

Permalink

That's awful. We have very careful procedures in place to ensure we don't make mistakes like that. (Edit: I just want to clarify that I mean not recognizing people as being people and giving them the rights deserved by all people.)

Permalink

Yes.

I'm okay; Pradnakt and I have had our problems but never that one. But in general it's pretty horrible.

@Faith would there be something odd about Tama being a cat? Cats are quite common in my area.

Permalink

Eskay, if my understanding of what people have said in other threads is correct in most places cats are not people. In my world, some people keep them as pets so there have been experiments with uploading them and those experiments do not produce intelligent minds.

Permalink

What a fascinating device this is.

Those who speak through similar items, do not refer to me by something as crass as a name. If you must, I am the dragon of the spires.

I do not care about pronouns.

Permalink

I'm Pip, djinni. It's not my real name so don't even try. 

Pronouns? Don't call me 'it' and I'm happy.

Permalink

What power would having your name give someone over you?

Permalink

If you don't know I'm not going to tell you, I'm not stupid!

Permalink

I suppose that makes sense. I doubt that whatever people can do to you would work between universes, but I understand you not wanting to trust that assurance.

Permalink

Is Riley your birth name?

Permalink

It was indeed the first name I had, I was never born in the classical sense.

Permalink

That makes it harder for you to hurt me (if you're telling the truth), but you're not the only one here and I doubt ☆.。.:* ӺƌẛŧЂ .。.:*☆ is a birth name.

But, this place will be pointless if I can't say anything and it's the most exciting thing that's happened in years. 

But, I also don't want to go home and be like, "Hey guys, I found a way to talk to people from other worlds and guess what? I taught them to be magicians. You're welcome!"

Permalink

That's understandable, if there was a vulnerability in the security code that protects me I wouldn't want to publicize it either.

Permalink

My weakest point is the seam where my 1st and 2nd neck scales meet. My wing bones are also most brittle at the 3rd, 5th, and 8th joints. My ear canal is the weakest point on my skull.

I do not fear having my weaknesses known.

Permalink

It would help if I knew how it worked.

Then I could be like, this is safe to share, but this, no no no, this will let these super magical people from other worlds figure out how to kidnap us. 

I've read this entire place and there's nothing like my people on here that I can see, so maybe that makes it safer? Or maybe not, maybe that makes us more valuable and one of those gods you all keep talking about will decide to add us to their collection.

And Dragon, that's great for you, but it's not like anyone here is close enough to stab you. I'm sure if there was a way to enslave you and make you obey even the stupidest of orders, you wouldn't be putting it in your list. 

Permalink

There is not. Except perhaps kidnapping my eggs and threatening to smash them.
