Okay, Ok.

Nyah nyah, you got told.


Sorry, hon.  It's just that I respect Cain more than I feel the urge to mock you.

I'm sure you understand your lack of importance.

Actually, I wasn't having a go at anyone, or even saying to stop this relatively lame flaming (on both sides). 

All I want is for it to stay in the threads it is already in, because its just far less messy that way.  Its a request.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

I've been watching this thread... trying to think of what it was I wanted to say... and you fucking said it Cain.

Swallowed his facade cuz I'm so

Someone above the ground,
Someone who seemed to feel the same,
Someone prepared to lead the way, and
Someone who would die for me.

Will you? Will you now?
Would you die for me?

Actually, since Kaienne seems to be deliberately trying to stir shit up in new threads, I take back what I said.  Go nuts.

Anyway, back to the OP.

Apparently, Steampunk is also a term used for retrofitting modern technology to look more like an antique:




Which I think is pretty damn cool, Kai's fashion sense notwithstanding.

*sigh*
OK... how to put this.

Kai is my friend. Yes. And so are all you guys.

And I think right now, everyone's saying stupid shit. Myself included.

I should have kept my mouth shut with that last reply.
LMNO, all I'm requesting could you leave my fap buddy alone.
Cain, your right.
Kai, you should realise theres a time to back down and do the humble thing when you've "won".

And thats all I have to say about this.

Standing above the crowd,
He had a voice that was strong and loud and I
Swallowed his facade cuz I'm so
Eager to identify with
Someone above the ground,
Someone who seemed to feel the same,
Someone prepared to lead the way, and
Someone who would die for me.

Will you? Will you now?
Would you die for me?
Don't you fuckin lie.

you still didnt answer my question

chick or dude?

and i see so much of this "steampunk" thing around here(although they just drop it in a "goth" or "industrial" category), it isnt anything new to me. no matter what, when you think youre doing something unique and new and being an individual... theres a whole group of people doing the exact same thing.

so..... chick or dude and are you the same person with the cat ear avatar (who i thought was a chick)

You know what Androgynous is CS?
That's Kai.

I'm biomale, yeah. You can refer to me by whatever pronoun you prefer. I gave the cat ears (and tail) away awhile ago, got bored of them.
Usually when I see goths, cybergoths, or even rivetheads, their outfits are usually really well-kept and sleek and stuff, whereas I wanted to go for a more rags-and-patches feel.
