I really need to be more active these days.
Vresun's officially without an admin now. Unless they stop with the conflict, I ain't returning. (I'm assuming the chances of that happening are less than zero, though...)
2312 notifications. Um.
That's far too many and now I wonder how many other people here handle even more notifications than that. :o
How exactly does one pronounce "Xeirn"?

I am a deviant. My name... Shane Neumann.

I am the administrator of the Vresun: Ciraian Ruins forums as well as its sister forums, the Symforá forums. I also go by ShaneBaneNeumann at TV Tropes.

I was once an author of Dragon Riders, but no longer.

Pardon the current profile picture; I have absolutely no idea what to use for it other than that.
Unrelated to Yu-Gi-Oh! and its Xyz Monsters and whatnot; it's just the first thing that came to mind. (As almost usual. =P )

So, apparently it took me 9 hours 29 minutes 24 seconds to clear La-Mulana 1 (the remake). O.o
(I ignored the whole bonus area known as "Hell Temple", simply because I would never even be able to finish that area.)

That said, I still have to clear the first level of the "Misty Lake" (?) area of a Touhou fangame (Wandering Souls, for those who are curious).
It's a platformer… RPG… bullet hell… thing. Not sure how best to describe it ^^;

Just goes to show that two games that may look similar can be very, very different.
Maybe I should try to play Touhou Wandering Souls and try to actually beat it.
It's better than being bored.

Also, Wednesday was almost the worst day of the month, but that was thankfully averted some time after.
(My computer broke down, but 'twas temporary…)

Plus, it's weird how things can disappear the moment you actually need them.
The other day, I was looking for some old information on an character of mine, but it was nowhere to be found.
I still can't find it (I've searched the entire house), so it's either vanished entirely, got thrown away ( D: ) or will probably only appear when I no longer need it. -_-

Happy Birthday, Shane.

Thanks. :)

Happy Birthday, dude. Here's hoping it's a good one. :)
SBaneN Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2015
Thanks; it wasn't a good one, but at least it wasn't a bad one either.

So, uh, I don't know when you'll be reading this (if ever), but I (and almost everyone else, of course) miss you.
We're all worried about you. I haven't even updated Glaice's thread at the Vresun forum. I don't think Dragon Riders or Vresun: Ciraian Ruins will ever progress, as long as you're inactive... I don't know why, but you seem to be impossible to contact via mobile, too. :'(


So, yeah. You'll be happy to notice that I've been active at the Vresun forums and also busy on Lunar Shadow, which is currently released at version 3a. I'd rather not join TV Tropes just to give that a page (considering DiankeSmith apparently has at least 200 TV Tropes bookmarks, I'd rather not get my life ruined), though I know fairly well that there is currently no-one who has "An Ice Person" applied to them. (I think that's one of your favorite tropes?)
Unfortunately, knowing your phobias, some of the characters will scare you (due to certain headgear my ex-boyfriend obsessed over), so I don't know if you'll play the Cave Story mod or not.
Of course, considering the final boss is based on someone (mentioned in the previous line), I wouldn't know... the guy was a total jerk, yes, but who knows...
Either way, I'll be taking a break from modding for who-knows-how-long. Perhaps I'll continue when you finally return, perhaps before then... I honestly don't know. My mind is basically a mess. ^^;


Anyway... like I said, not sure when you'll be reading this, so... I suppose I'll just say it. Early/belated happy birthday, Shane!
May things go well for you in the coming days, and may you not get depressed at all this year... and please, stay determined. Your TV Tropes page says you're a determinator, so please don't contradict that...
And remember - you aren't the only one who has issues and such; everyone has troubles that plague them.

Speaking of your TV Tropes page, the first folder seems to have a broken list icon.
Also, I doubt the Mr. Bones films will ever get pages, considering those are South African films, but that's just me, a British Britain from the British UK.

Over 500 bookmarks, I will have you know, Kim-chan.

Anyway... [1] I guess I'm missable? :o
[2] Mobile contact is impossible.
[3] Good. Though you shouldn't be afraid :o
Or is it due to that IP thing that you ladies seem to be unable to do something about?
[4] Thanks for the head's up, but if it's Aidan... I suppose beating him will be better.
[5] If I am inactive, just pretend that I'm not inactive and that I'm not posting because of laziness. -.-
[6] Thanks. I will still get depro, etc. and power outages are things, so...
[7] Thanks for the note; I'll fix it as soon as I can. (If ever.)
[8] Wishful thinking is a thing. =P
KimTyranto Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2015
3 - yeah, that.
5 - I tried, didn't work
DhanaRagnarok Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2014
Hey you!^^
Man, I just realized how long it has been since I last went on TVTropes' forums... Damn these exams and their annoying tendency to push you towards productivity!
SBaneN Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2014
Hi :)

Exams does tend to cause chaos of some kind.
ironcommando Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2014
Heya there Shane, thanks for the watch =D

I have a few requests, regardless of what style it is. ^^;
Namely: Siobhán Kosugi, Jmarl and Jzydia Jrianza, Belle Neumann, the characters of Caitlin's chapter of Dragon Riders Continuity Epsilon (in their spy uniforms, I have no idea what their normal uniforms will be), and my sister. Also Tiamat. If you want, also Belle and Kairi Clements.
Also, Chris Klingehandschuh, Carrie Handschuhklinge and their sisters.

I'll understand if you refuse, of course...
Also, you can ignore the gas masks that the characters might wear.
I know you're afraid of them, so you don't need to draw those.
SBaneN Featured By Owner May 25, 2014
I'll try my best, though they'll be the final drawings I'll do. The Dragon Riders of Continuity Epsilon being the final one.
As I finish them, I'll upload them as well...

And no, I won't ignore anything regardless of my fears.
KimTyranto Featured By Owner May 25, 2014
Cool... wait, final one? D:
KimTyranto Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2014
When'd you decide to use a pic of yourself as your avatar? :o
