[02:42] <DanielHawking> oh my god oh my GOD I HATE EVERYTHING asd;lfkjas;dljfas;ldfjasd;flj that kid tried to fuck with me while I was about to go take a shower. I’m wearing a fucking bathrobe, carrying a towel, and he decides to get up in my business and say YOU ARE NOT TAKING A SHOWER TONIGHT. I have to wait until 3 people pull him the fuck away from me so I can walk without him trying to mess around with my shit. I’m sick of this.
[02:42] <DanielHawking> I swear
[02:42] <DanielHawking> I am so sick of this shit.
[02:42] <Talhydras> …
[02:43] <Talhydras> Are you sure you’re in college, and not a ghetto?
[02:43] <DanielHawking> I don’t know anymore
[02:43] <DanielHawking> I’m pissed

Those bastards in my hall really are prideful bastards.. So he’s calling me a pussy and a liar for not taking food from people in the hallways. I’m just not hungry. I close the door in his face and he starts ripping the whiteboard off my door. He starts calling me a faggot and a pussy, again, of course, since that’s all his vocabulary. Then he tells me to step over to where he is and I tell him “Aralonians listen to ourselves. We are indpendent. We don’t listen to people like you.” He rushes at me but I slam the door in his face. Someone in the hall pulls him back and he thinks I’m insulting him for being Arabic. I open the door, tell him “Actually, you’re an idiot” and close it again.

[8:37:09 PM] !Daniel Hawking: Okay, so
[8:37:25 PM] !Daniel Hawking: I’m minding my own business cooking myself some dinner.
[8:37:49 PM] !Daniel Hawking: Some random bitches come in.
[8:38:06 PM] !Daniel Hawking: They offer to duel me. Again. (This is following last night, which was just human stupidity)
[8:38:10 PM] !Daniel Hawking: I don’t give a shit.
[8:38:12 PM] !Daniel Hawking: I cook dinner.
[8:38:18 PM] !Daniel Hawking: They open my drawers? A bit of a violation of my own privacy
[8:38:31 PM] !Daniel Hawking: Grab a nerf gun out of it and start pointing it at me, dry firing it at me.
[8:38:38 PM] !Daniel Hawking: Sonya, stop typing, this is my story, let me finish
[8:39:09 PM] !Daniel Hawking: Anyways.
[8:39:35 PM] !Daniel Hawking: This sorta starts pissing me off. But I just keep preparing my food. Then they take my own possession out of my room. Um, wtf?
[8:40:02 PM] !Daniel Hawking: As you can imagine about having someone steal something that belongs to me, I’m fucking pissed off.
[8:40:54 PM] !Daniel Hawking: But that’s beside the point. The point of the matter is that he throws it on the ground the moment I start walking towards the RA’s office.
[8:40:59 PM] !Daniel Hawking: Calling me a dirty snitch and stuff like that.
[8:41:17 PM] !Daniel Hawking: Um, hello? Rule 1 of Aralonian Infantry Tactics? “There is never too much artillery.”
[8:42:09 PM] !Daniel Hawking: Anyways, that’s it.

>You know… This is something I have trouble getting people to understand in magazine interviews. For example, you’ve got World War II, and then you have lots of movies based on that event, right? They are all fictional. They’re all based on a war that actually took place, but they are all different. For example, in period dramas you have Oda Nobunaga and Tokugawa Ieyasu, but there are so many Oda Nobunagas and Tokugawa Ieyasus. The producers look at the real event and adapt the character according to their wishes. The actors and lines also change, so the character changes. It’s that kind of feeling. OK, so in the timeline you have a movie called DYRL that was released, does that mean that the TV series is the true story? Well, you have the SDF-1 that supposedly fell from the sky, and then a story was made about the subsequent history and was televised. Then that became a movie. Then later, there was a “Macross 7 incident”, and a TV series was made about that. That’s basically how I see it.

>So… “Macross 7” is also a TV series broadcast within the Macross timeline?

>That’s right, that’s the interpretation. It’s not just the movie, they are ALL works of fiction.

>None of them are real?

>None of them are real.

tired, copypasting from IRC

[02:13] Aralonia: I never told you the whole story about the swordfight
[02:13] _Lizzie_: ok
[02:14] Aralonia: So my roomie picks up my sword. I poke him to give it back but he goes and tosses it at another dude.
[02:14] Aralonia: the other dude, an Arabic, starts slashing back at me
[02:14] Aralonia: I want it back
[02:14] Aralonia: so he offers to duel me in the hallway
[02:14] Aralonia: by this point I just want my sword back and he says “no”
[02:15] Aralonia: so fine, I go upstairs and get changed into proper battle wear (a long sleeve shirt and my brown coat, plus slacks and shoes)
[02:15] Aralonia: go downstairs
[02:15] Aralonia: he makes the first move and I slash at him. he dodges backwards
[02:15] Aralonia: the duel continues, but he disarms me for a sec.
[02:15] Aralonia: I pull my fucking nerf rifle out of my coat and point it at him
[02:16] Aralonia: er, not rifle, pistol
[02:16] Aralonia: he flees for a sec but then I put it away and grab my sword
[02:16] Aralonia: duel continues
[02:16] Aralonia: He did a punch at me with his fist but I blocked with the nerf gun.
[02:16] Aralonia: His knuckle at this point is in pain
[02:17] Aralonia: Then he broke the sword tip of my nerf sword. motherfucker
[02:17] Aralonia: he stuffed it down his pants. double mofucka
[02:17] Aralonia: he stepped on the sword tip and broke it into pieces. triple mofucker
[02:17] Aralonia: I call him a stupid coward, honourless
[02:17] Aralonia: I guess Egyptian people surround me and try to talk touch
[02:17] Aralonia: *talk tough
[02:17] Aralonia: a few girls, who saw me, step in and tell them to fuck off
[02:17] Aralonia: I get my swords back and then Public Safety arrives and tells them to fuck off
[02:18] Aralonia: at this point I run away
[02:19] Aralonia: but apparently Public Safety said “When I heard there was a swordfight going on, first I wanted to just drive BACKWARDS. Second, I wanted to come watch”
[02:20] Aralonia: so uh
[02:20] Aralonia: I come out uninjured even though he kicks me like 5 times
[02:20] Aralonia: he comes out uninjured but with the pride that he can’t beat up a little kid broken
[02:20] Aralonia: because little kid knows fencing/kendo
[02:23] Aralonia: I apologised to the students

It’s an amusing amount of fun to fuck around with someone who’s drunk off their ass. How does one do this properly?

Marie, thank you for acting for me for a second. I did need that nap. That seems like something he’d do – I’m sorry you had to meet him in person. And it’s a shame, too. Still, you should give a bit of a warning before you use my body – it’s not used to your form taking it, so you should be a bit more careful about how many actions you perform next time. Goodnight, world. You should sleep too, Marie.

My name is Daniel Hawking.

There are three fractions that make up this persona.

One of which is sealed closed via the physical realm of the world. One of which is unlocked via the medium known as the Internet. One of which is standing tall, watching over the wondrous horizon in front of him.

Of the first, this is the one most who have met me see, the one shunned, the one unappreciated, the one treated as entertainment instead of a colleague, the one shunted off to the side.

Of the second, only a select few have been able to meet. Coherency and truthful thoughts are the hallmarks of those knowing this fraction, as are trust and belief. Most of the dearest friends know of this section.

Of the third...? Revival of the finest order, as the phoenix of a prince rises from his own ashes. The adventurer, a traveler.

Regardless of fates, this is who I am now.

Daniel Hawking. Prince of Aralonia.

One of many.

A representative of Aralonia.

Together, the collective mindset of a nation.
