View Full Version : I love you

A thread to tell people (not necessarily people here!) how you feel about them

Only by not using the emotional words - lobe, hate, etc etc. (I'm not in love, so don't forget it...it didn't mean that much to me...)

Show, don't tell in other words. (Acually telling is fine -- as it is -- as long as no emtion words)

Bettielee, she's sparkly and such, but when she crits me there's blood on the page. Bloody fairies. I would force feed her sugar cookies if we lived less than several thousand miles apart

Since the room moderators aren't around at the moment, I'll suggest going easy on this one, folks.

I suspect if people actually start posting "I hate you" things on here the thread will be shut down immediately.

Other than that, have fun.

I love William Haskins, and he'll hate me for saying that, but he'll mean well, anyway. We disagree on a variety of things, but we've also had all manner of interesting exchanges, both publicly and privately, he's a very smart guy (who will hate me for saying that), and I've both bought a volume of his (very fine) poetry, and given him a hard-to-find novel from an obscure European writer, which I thought he'd enjoy, and which he did.

Ball is in your court, William.

To the desk of Mr. Zach Woods,
Please accept this dead woodland creature as a symbol of my affection. I've gone to great lengths to find such a beastie, and I trust that it is well received. What is was in life I could not tell you, as I found it post-mortem.

I thought of you yesterday as I scraped the cremated remains of macaroni bake from the corroded metal slats of the oven. I thought of you again as I wandered the near by woods at night, carrying a small vile of my own blood in case I should encounter you.

Plz rply, or I will attempt to woo you another time.

:) You have sort of done that - you send me books via post.

:)

There is a person at work who makes me feel emotions. They aren't good emotions and they make me struggle with myself. I don't want to hold on to things that make me gnash my teeth and make my hands sweat from not saying things I want to say and vitriol. I find myself having to walk away and grrrrrrrrr until my teeth vibrate so that I don't say the things that want to go past them. I don't understand how this other person can say the things she says and not hear them for what they are. And thus, the walking out and going grrrrrrrr until my ears go from red to regular. I wish I could just walk away and leave the emotions at the base of her desk and not care. But I can't.

EEK! I didn't mean for people to actually say I hate you!

I should have worded that better, right? Right. Thread title changed.
And I lobe you anyway :D

PS Haggis is such a little cutie, I want to hug him and lobe (;)) him and call him George, and then give him to my cats to play with. Because they always need little furry things to play with!

hell yes i will reciprocate this.

blacbird, you've been around the block in ways that most people can't begin to grasp, and you have kept your sense of humor, your humility and your kindness - all while remaining strong and self-determined and intellectually hungry in a varied and consistent manner.

you stand behind what you believe and, more importantly, you believe what you believe.

you're a tough sonofabitch, something that grows increasingly rare every day. cheers to you, sir.

I want to scritch Haggis's ears and keep him in a basket next to my desk always, feeding him bacon.

Reg, if I could, I'd buy you every Transformer on the shelf.

William, if they ever get around to banning you, I shall ban myself in protest.

And I hate Willam Haskins because every time I want to write him off for something he posted in another forum (usually P&CE), he'll end up posting something in the Roundtable or Poetry forum whether it be a poem of his own or comments on another's (or even mine) or literature in general that makes me want to reconsider him.

I wish he would just officially make himself a villain for me so I could just ignore him and feel better about hating him instead of keeping coming back to some of his posts every once in a while for some small bit of wisdom or inspiration.

And if anyone dares to tell him how I've checked Thorn Forest without commenting several times when I've needed to recoup my ear for meter, I'll kill that person, because poetry is serious business.

So there.

This. In spades. And clubs, diamonds, hearts, cups, swords, and er, whatever other suits there are. My life bears no resemblance to my life in November 2009 when I joined, and NONE of it was expected. Oh yeah, and I've learned how to be a better writer in the meantime. You've all been there through it all.

Even you, Haskins.

Thanks.

Love is a very strong word to use and so is hate, so as with all things, I will say that for many on this forum I have the utmost respect for how they have helped me with my writing style or trying to understand my POV on various matters.

There are others, though, who do not deserve the time of day.

I will add, though, that even though there are those who do not deserve to be given the time of day, they still have something to offer.

I lobve Bearilou, my brain twin, who makes me laugh and says such smart, incisive things in such a nice way.

I am forever fond of Amadan, who is also super-smart but as tart as a good zingy apple when he wants to be.

I adore the mods of AW, because this place is a well-run ship and their deft steering keeps us off the rocks -- which can't be an easy task when your boat is as full of loose cannons as this one is. :D

So there.

a generous assessment, kuwi. and i appreciate it.

i have long admired your (ever increasing) flashes of brilliance, and even so have been frustrated with you at times and expressed as much to you, both publicly and privately. you have been equally critical of me when it was warranted, but moreover you have always been a good sport and a splendid work-in-progress.

i like that you will stalk the earth long after i am gone.

i sincerely appreciate your kind words about my poetry, but i am also humbled by them because i have found new ideas and approaches and bold experiments in your work as well.

and i am working towards wholesale villainy, and will get there. i will make you proud and give you reasons to hate me that you've never contemplated.

it will be glorious. but for tonight, thank you.

lobe rocks. so does coffee. sadly my house has none and i'm getting irritated over it. I can only drink so much tea before I go nuts and start talking in a british accent and muttering about bloody colonials. P.S. some of my family comes from england, so it's cool. I had a grama who taught piano in england. I think one of my granduncles or something was a professor at a college, too. P.P.S. I talked to mom. I was full of crap. looks like i got my info wrong xD I just SWEAR I remembered that. oh well, I DO have ancestors in england, but not for a long time.

Shinji: I feel that there were only hateful things there. So I'm sure it was okay to run away. But there was nothing good in the place I ran to, either. After all, I didn't exist there... which is the same as no one existing.

Kaworu: Is it okay for AT Fields to hurt you and others once more?

Shinji: I don't mind. But, what are you two within my heart?

Rei: Hope. The hope that people might be able to understand one another.

Kaworu: And the words 'I love you'.

Shinji: But that's just pretending - a self-intoxicating belief... like a prayer. It can't possibly last forever. Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real.
