So the main character is this girl who's connected to the Wilds somehow. She gets on a train that takes her to another world. It takes her to a series of dead, underground vaults. She wanders through the vaults and arrives at a door.
It's a thick door, and a wide one. She throws herself at it. The air is thick, and she has to push herself off the opposite wall to get enough force. It's mostly futile for a few attempts, but then the Lightning God drops the barrier and the door slams open.
When she goes through, an elevator takes her up to the city. As if in a blur, she arrives in the middle of a city of skyscrapers. Always, she goes up the small steps and into the bar on the first story.
The bar is upscale, but she must be very careful not to upset anyone. Even the slightest offense will cause the people to see that she is not of the city, and the police will be called.
The police are always called, eventually. Sometimes it's after a good deal more exploration of the city, but someone,

A man brushes his teeth and walks into his bedroom. His dentist is waiting for him with a sharp, sharp knife. "You're bleeding because you don't floss," the dentist whispers as the man bleeds out onto his brown carpet.

Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me.
Well, maybe if those words are "I prepared Explosive Runes this morning".

I used to think spells equaled power, too, when I was alive. I've learned a lot since.
You know what does equal power?
Fd/t. Fd/t equals power.


What is a Dominican Republic? We have asked ourselves this for many years, yet we have made no advancement in this field since 1985, when it was discovered that the word Dominican can also apply to friars. Many scholars have theories on this; the most highly regarded is that it has a similar meaning to the word holy.
And then, of course, there lies the problem of defining a republic.

"The problem with KISS — Keep It Simple Stupid — is that it often leads to LOVE — Leave Out Virtually Everything."

"History doesn't repeat itself: it rhymes."

"A key to the understanding of all religion is that a god's idea of amusement is Snakes and Ladders with greased rungs."
"Technically, the city of Ankh-Morpork is a tyranny, which is not always the same thing as a monarchy, and in fact even the post of Tyrant has been somewhat redefined by the incumbent, Lord Vetinari, as the only form of democracy that works. Everyone is entitled to vote, unless disqualified by reason of age or not being Lord Vetinari."
“It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it.”
“Five exclamation marks, the sure sign of an insane mind.”
“I'd rather be a rising ape than a falling angel.”
“It's still magic even if you know how it's done.”
“Always be wary of any helpful item that weighs less than its operating manual.”
--all Terry Pratchett

"When you talk to God it's prayer... When He talks back, it's schizophrenia." --Fox Mulder

"Puritanism- the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, might be happy."

Grand Master of All Things Bad? I don't know any Grand Master of All Things Bad.

"'All little girls are terrible,' he admitted finally, 'but the Marquess, at least, has a very fine hat.'"

Your name is DAKHEM UAID. (Or wait... is it?)

Mine Turtle Stamp by Rothstein-Kaiser DA Stamp - Obsess Responsibly by tppgraphics Confusing Auditors II by spacewarp

You tend to OBSESS OVER THINGS, sometimes for a weekend, sometimes for years. You sometimes grow depressed when obsessed with things that are significantly more awesome than REAL LIFE.

You like drawing with pens, but are PRETTY MEDIOCRE AT IT. You tend to find an art style and exhaust it before moving on. You would like to be able to draw on your computer, but GIMP, and your cheap graphic tablet, ANNOY YOU GREATLY. You wish you could draw characters or backgrounds, and try to practice them, but you GET FRUSTRATED QUICKLY. You also enjoy writing STRANGE POETRY as well as NARRATIVE POEMS about your favorite webcomics.

Scrod CLAM you love WEBCOMICS.
Unsounded Stamp by ProudTortoise Homestuck Stamp by CrystheWaterNinja Nimona Stamp by ProudTortoise Kiwi Blitz Stamp by Gamafort

You read over fifty of them and frequently check several of them. They tend to belong to the FANTASY genre, or sometimes the SCIENCE FICTION. Your favorite by far is a sadly underrated comic called UNSOUNDED, which is simply the BEST WEBCOMIC THERE IS. Your second favorite, as well as the most referenceable (you reference it ANNOYINGLY FREQUENTLY) is HOMESTUCK. (And it is quite possible that the funniest is SWEET BRO AND HELLA JEFF.)

You also have a penchant for ROLE PLAYING but often find it difficult to immerse yourself in a role due to your regrettable ANCHOR TO REALITY, or at least what remains of it. You READ INCESSANTLY in whatever idle time you have and like to THINK. You grow annoyed at yourself if this thinking is NOT CONSTRUCTIVE, which is ALMOST ALWAYS. You DAYDREAM a lot, which is not the same as thinking. You love LOUD WEATHER, especially STORMS with thunder and driving rain, but they are annoyingly infrequent where you live. You wish you could move to OREGON. You love music and your taste has been described as ECLECTIC (but not completely indiscriminate).

Your God Tier title is KNIGHT OF SPACE. Your Strife Specibus is RAPIERKIND and your blood color is JADE.

Rapierkind? by ProudTortoise Knight of Space? Stamp by ProudTortoise Jade Blood? Stamp by ProudTortoise

Your favorite Homestuck characters are KARKAT, TEREZI, and DAVE. You admire their SUPERB PERSONALITIES. When it comes to CHARACTER, theirs are simply the best there are. You like KANAYA, JADE, NEPETA, ARADIA and MEENAH, too, because they AMUSE YOU or simply are cool. You hope that Karkat and Meenah become MATESPRITS: this is your OTP.
