Character

Status update: Characters are hard. It's a shame there's so damn many of them in the Tenses Universe. On the other hand, their difficulty is pretty much the entire point, so I'd better get used to it. Or hide behind conditions and places that have a bit more stability to them.

Hey there, stranger!


SIDENOTE:
ha ha ha ha! That's me, Ariel, the authoress of Tenses Universe, being funny! ha ha ha ha! You don't get it, because it's a
hilarious inside joke you don't know about because Tenses Universe is UNDER CONSTRUCTION and only even kinda public because I'm doing some sort of trust-fall exercise called "WorldEmber." It might be "World Ember" or World-Ember," but I love camelCase and use it as often as possible.
END SIDENOTE


     

I hate to break it to you, but Tenses Universe is UNDER CONSTRUCTION and only even kinda available for you to be looking at because I'm doing some sort of public trust-fall called "WorldEmber."

Don't you just love camelCase?    

To write is human, to style divine.

  Ummm. . . Have I even created a World Navigation sidebar? I distinctly donot recall making any sort of World Navigation sidebar, so I'm not sure what you're doing here. This entire world is so firmly UNDER CONSTRUCTION that I don't recall making any of it. Especially not a sidebar for navigating my whole world. That actually sounds amazing!   Don't worry, there's no punishment. I think reading anything in these colors on this background is punishment enough.

This is going to be really awkward, but we're going to get through this conversation together.

Here's the thing: You being here right now feels a little like you're looking up my skirt. I didn't mean for you to be able to look up my skirt, I was just playing around. Someone dared me to show the world my stuff, so I did. It was going to be just super quick. But now, everyone can see up my skirt.
You are looking up my skirt right now. And I know myself enough to know this: I'm going to start to like it. What do I care about people looking up my skirt? Nothing at all, and that's the truth. Which makes the actual problem this: You are not looking up my skirt.You are looking at my INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY IN AN UNFINISHED STATE! Get out of here, you creep, you MONSTER! Ahhhhhh!!!!!
