I don't suppose we can tempt you back for another round? Come on, you know you want to.
I can't access chat but I can see you in there! Hello! How are you? Hugs "Say 'ello to my little friend!"
- Ooooh, yeah, Gandalf is definitely senile. Especially seeing what happened to Radagast and his mushroom-addled brain! I'd like to place a formal application to add your Skype to my Skype. Ya'know, Skypesex or something. Hugs "Say 'ello to my little friend!"
Dunno if you remember me? Brandon? I messaged you yesterday on Leon's site. But now JS has told me that he has seen you on chat! So how have you been?
You don't find many people who are fans of SH2? Preposterous. The game evokes a lot of emotions and thoughts that not a lot of fiction does, so I hold it quite dear to my heart. Yeah, DG kindly offered to hand me the torch after he was asking for a successor. I already have DG working on a banner thingie for the top which I said could be done anytime in the next week and a bit, he's so cool. Tbh, I looked at your last poll at the New Vegas banner thingie and I decided that I had to have it! Regardless, it's nice to hear from you. I'm sorry that me and others are probably going to be swamping your talk-page with messages which you're gonna have to respond to, you've become quite a celebrity here for some reason. I read on Leon's page that you only wanted to stop by quickly and now you have messages to respond to. I hope that your life is going good and that you are happy :)
Even before reading your advice, I already knew that putting in little stories, jokes and interesting anecdotes gets people interested and a bit happier which is the main aim lol. Fortunately, I think I can provide things people hopefully find interesting to read. No, I don't know what life is like. It'd be great if someone could explain it but I sort of get what you mean with neither here nor there. Everyone's life is different, better or worse. There are many things right now I don't enjoy and even depress me, but well, yeah. Obviously, I won't let that seep into the Polls to depress other people, but thanks for your advice.
That is banner is just... amazing. I'll let DG know I've already found one to use. I couldn't think of a Fallout character to use either and I was actually thinking later on of adding in James because of my avatar. James never would have fitted with the Vegas Strip and your one is just brill with the desolate Wasteland of F3 to to go with James. You have my thanks Yes Man!
Blargh? Blargh, Edit
You sexy Australian wildebeest. I knew you'd come crawling back. <3 And I see Nem is back, as well. :3 Does this mean we'll get some life flowing through the wiki again? Some Assembly Required! 16:36, November 6, 2013 (UTC)

who are you???????????????????? Hawk da Barber 2012 - BSHU Graduate 04:35, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

Cool to see another fan. I actually only just got the platinum boxset thingie with the silver tin box, about a week and so ago. I've watched all of them since and I really adored them. I watched it in Japanese with subtitles though, cos I like experiencing things originally to begin with :D
I even really liked the last two episodes despite how controversial they are, and I think even understand them. I'm watching End Of in a couple days time though, just to see what's it like. Apparently it's a better alternative ending, some however say it actually is more like added content for the TV series final two episodes from an external viewpoint, whereas the final two episodes of the TV show were an internal viewpoint from Shinji's mind.
Regardless, what made you revisit the series' theme Yessie?
I understand what you mean with the revisiting your childhood likes and stuff. I recently revisited the Pokemon games, but on the other hand, I ended up not being get into it as much as I did when I was little in contrast to your anime. Sometimes, I really do think that childhood likes can change with age, Pokemon unfortunately is one of them now. I really liked Eva, the drama and emotion and stuff with the characters, I really enjoyed it. People criticized it because the series ended up being more about the characters than the mecha fights, but honestly, it was always about Shinji and co with their problems. It's like how Fight Club wasn't really about the Fight Club, but the narrator and his psyche.
Yeah, Silence is an incredibly film. It got all the main academy awards during that year, did you know? It deserved it. I've never been too hot on TV shows based on films, and we don't even have Sky or anything, just Freeview. And even more anyway, I don't watch TV shows at all, I stick to DVD releases and stuff, I'm like that.
Did you hear that F4 is possibly announced? You always said that when F4 comes out you would return properly to the Wiki, but I guess you sort of already have :) You don't have to spend a lot of time on the Wiki by editing articles/pages and stuff, you can always just stick to comments on blogs and whatever, it's what I do. Hell, the most I do is just write a blog a week and reply to comments if I want, it doesn't take a lot of time out of my week at all :)
Um, thanks Yessie but honestly, I don't know where that came from. One minute I was talking about Eva and Silence of the Lambs and F4 and not having to stay active on the Wiki, then all this Poll help suddenly comes out of the blue. Seriously, thanks for the input but if I need any help Yessie, I'll be sure to ask you.
Hey Yessie, good to see your name popping up in recent changes! And you did some useful editing yesterday. There's not enough of it these days. So good work and it helped me too. I've spent a lot of time in the past few months adding sound files to quotes, and I went through all of your quotes and added a soundfile. Spared me the work of searching for the quote myself. So keep it up I hope. Jspoel 17:34, November 13, 2013 (UTC)
- Ah yes, the name change felt like so long ago I forgot to mention it! It represented sort of a rebirth of sorts (sounds very cheesy, I know) for me and I thought it was worthwhile. Anyhow, things have been going okay, although very busy recently. I haven't had that much time myself for editing, and quite a few tasks are piling up... It's definitely great to see you drop by again. Hopefully you might consider returning to regular activity here, time permitting of course. Cheers! --Skire (talk) 03:35, November 14, 2013 (UTC)

I never knew you had Skype. Would you be interested in chatting sometime? I'd love to hear the voice behind the man!
My skype name is foxzone17
My friend Edit
My Friend, how I have missed you so ;-; --TwoBearsHigh-Fiving 22:17, November 17, 2013 (UTC)
- Most excellent! One way or another the game is coming. I've been so slow with school but that will soon change, I'd love to help out on the project. TA will be back to where it was soon! --TwoBearsHigh-Fiving 23:52, November 17, 2013 (UTC)
Since we're buddies regarding Silent Hill, in your view how do you see the second game ending? I mean, what do you think happened with James? Since it all depends on how we interpret the story and main character, I'm quite curious as to your thoughts.
An interesting interpretation. I lean towards In Water/Leave. While I don't doubt that James originally went to Silent Hill to kill himself in a place of memories with his wife's body, it's all a question of whether he chooses to go through with it or not.
The way I interpret the story, James has just killed Mary (that we know for certain), and the killing actually took place very almost within the last week (which we can gather from Laura just turning 8 last week which says so in one of Mary's letters to her).
James unable to live without Mary, decides to take her body and himself to the town to kill himself in a place of memories. However, at some point along the way (with the body still in the car), something happens to James internally and he gives himself amnesia and blocks out his killing of Mary because only does he feel guilty about the murder, but he also debates whether or not to go through with his planned suicide. Hence through both of these, he constructs the letter from Mary beckoning him to return to their "special place" in Silent Hill which is where he's now headed. He no longer remembers he killed Mary and now believes he is following a message from his wife from beyond the grave.
The events in Silent Hill are essentially a way of his mind deciding whether or not he should go through with his suicide, to resolve the internal conflict within his mind of whether he should move on with his life or end his own life by suicide.
The other characters themselves are real who also felt a calling to the town. Eddie who finally reaches breaking point in anger, is forced to be killed by James. Angela chooses to kill herself and cannot move on with her life. Laura has no inner darkness, she is innocent and simply wishes to find Mary. Laura sees none of the darkness in the town the other characters see. Regardless of James' outcome, she ends up leaving the town unharmed at the end.
As to what I think James ends up doing, what side internally ends up winning? Does the desire to die and be with Mary in the afterlife win? Or does James learn to move on with his life? The town is only trying to help James figure out the truth, but it's up to him with what he decides to do. On some days, I feel that James learns to move on with his life after being forgiven by Mary. On other days, I feel that James succumbs to his inner turmoil and chooses to end his life. So in a way, I'm torn between both endings.
Also, ever noticed how Mary's talk with James at the end differs between Leave and In Water?
James: The truth is, I hated you. I wanted you out of the way! I wanted my life back!
Mary: If that were true, then why do you look so sad?....
Mary: James, Please do something for me. Go on with your life. (hands James the letter)
James: The truth is... part of me hated you. For taking away my life...
Mary: You killed me, and you're suffering for it. It's enough, James.
(Mary hands the letter to James and then passes away after)
In the In Water ending, Mary hasn't completely forgiven James unlike in the Leave one.
Hi Yessie. I'm not upset on a personal level, but just a bit disappointed at how things have turned out. Most of this is due to the obnoxious "poll troll" that managed to completely mess up the classic polling format. My feelings are not hurt, but you should consider those who may be unfairly seized from their chances of progressing in NotY, due to some users not taking it seriously. I intend this to be fun (as I remember it was last year), and I want it to be fun and full of jokes. However, at the same time we do need to be mindful of the very point of this little contest, which is to reward the hardest working users at the end of the year. Thanks for the message, BTW. It does help. --Skire (talk) 19:44, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
