• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    It does!

    The discord links do load if I open them in a new tab. It's just embedding that doesn't seem to work

    Thats strange... :/ i'll try to use things other than discord next time
    Is there a name for the thing in fiction (usually tv/film) where a character uses a specific gender pronoun for a character who is unknown to them instead of using they/them, solely because the writer wants it to be more of a surprise later when it turns out to be someone of a different gender?

    The closest thing I can find is "pronoun trouble" on tvtropes, but it's still not quite right. That's more for when there's an in-universe reason for playing the pronoun game. I'm talking about when the only explanation is "the writers forgot that people use they/them naturally"

    I think I know what you mean, but I also don't know a specific term for it. :( If you know a series that does that, perhaps browse its page on tvtropes to see if it's been pointed out anywhere?

    Gender Reveal?

    Sort of, but it's more that nothing about someone's identity is known, but their gender is still assumed. All of the pages on that page seem to be situations where we know or see a character to some extent but their gender is unknown or ambiguous
    I don't know you to well but you seem really cool. What are your interests?

    I love most of those things (mathematics is fun when it's statistics, but i'm reeeeeally bad at other math.)
    What video games do you like to play?
    (I also kinda like sci-fi and programming although i don't know too much programming)

    I like things when I'm good at them, but don't have enough time to become good at things. That's where things are with things like programming.

    I play a variety of games I guess. Most recently I've been playing a lot of Minecraft and Crusader Kings 2, but I also like JRPGs and puzzle games.

    I love JRPG's and Minecraft, although i haven't played minecraft in a while.
    I got lonely and too scared to DM people in case I was annoying them and this was the only place I could think of where I can keep in passive contact with the few friends I have left :c
    This? This is a mood. I haven't met you before, but welcome (back) to the forums!
    Oh my gosh i'm so sorry. I mentally ticked off that i answered and never thought twice. Anyway, you seem very impartial about everything! It seems like you form your opinions empirically rather than assuming the opinion of a party or ideology until it's proven otherwise. You just seem hesitant to accept things at face value and you question stuff until you're able to form your own idea about it! At least that's how it seems.
    I do original stuff mostly, although I do have a Pokemon fic idea or two! And you've probably seen all my telegram posts but I'm starting to work on it again which is super exciting!

    Ah yes I know what you mean. There are so many cool things to do but it's so easy and fun to do other things like play video games :(

    Or play Mafia on chat haha. I maybe meant to do other things tonight but...
    For the most part it was things like laundry and dishes and cleaning, but I also finished a sewing project and sat down for (okay, for 20 minutes) to write my story (but 20 minutes totally counts, so!).

    Labyrinth was interesting. I may have liked it more as a kid (or maybe not because some of the puppets may have terrified me). I'm fascinated by mazes and optical illusions, and it touched on that a bit so that was cool!

    What kind of stuff is your version of productive? :O
    Ha, I'm doing that too. Right now I'm kind of torn between wishing I was more motivated and trying to be okay with being lazy :O I got a lot of stuff done this weekend though! Also I'm watching Labyrinth for the first time.
    It occurred to me that we've never really talked much before, and since we are fellow forumgoers - hello! How's it going?
    Good game! That's the first time that ability actually worked like I wanted it to, heh.
