another new person !!
« on: May 27, 2019, 05:41:36 AM »
hey guys !

i'm milano, nice to meet you all. i was recommended this site on a discord server i'm in with another new joiner, whose username is orange, since they said that this place was really nice and anyone who enjoyed writing (especially to polish their english) should join.

if my avatar doesn't give it away, i'm a big fan of how to train your dragon (that's how i know orange, through the discord server). but i have a lot of other interests:

     → pokémon - i've loved it since i was a child! my favourite regions are hoenn, kalos and alola, and i really like the 6th generation (xy & oras) as well as the 4th (dppt & hgss)
     → legend of zelda - another series i've loved since i was a child. i recently replayed breath of the wild and it's still one of my favourites because of how i can get lost in it.
     → eurovision - but this is a yearly thing, and a big deal for a lot of europeans, i think. i obviously support italy every year, but other entries catch my eye too! (portogallo è stato derubato)
     → animal crossing - they're comfort games for me, but i sadly lost new leaf a while ago... i should probably buy it again,, (the same for harvest moon)
     → percy jackson - i haven't read the books in a long time but i enjoyed them a lot !! i was a little more biased to the romans, but i was a roman kid when i was younger.

... and some other stuff, but i can't really remember off the top of my head. i'm looking forward to meeting everybody and hopefully getting to write with you all !

one of us
our avatars are very similar : ^ )

it's nice to meet you, hoot ! i'll definitely come to you if i need any help understanding things. (i'm not sure how you would shorten milano, but feel free to try if you'd like !)

except eurovision bc i'm american that's fair, the "euro" kind of gives away its demographic.

the httyd movies are very good (so are the shows, and the books) ! i'm guessing you saw the latest one ? i think my favourite will always be the first, but the others didn't disappoint. i really enjoyed them ! any night (and now light) fury content is very good.

somebody else who loves hoenn ! hoot, you are... an owl after my own heart. would it be boring of me to say that my favourite pokémon is charizard ? i have a soft spot for fire types, and even though it has a lot of weaknesses, something about charizard appeals to me because i loved dragons and dragon-like animals as a child. who's your favourite pokémon ?

wind waker is also very good ! i like everything the legend of zelda franchise has given me. breath of the wild is just fresh in my memory because it's the one i played most recently !

new leaf is very fun ! i'm definitely going to buy it again when i get the chance, and the same for harvest moon. i remember playing harvest moon for hours when i was really young and i miss how peaceful it was.

greek and roman mythology is really interesting to me ! especially roman, but again, i'm biased. historically, my favourite thing to study is the roman republic (the roman empire ? what's that ?) so i like seeing anything roman in media.

Hi there! Welcome to BB. I'm Aj.

I too love PJ, as well as Animal Crossing, quite a fun game.

God I love ancient history. Greek and Rome are so interesting! There's a series called "Detectives in Togas" and they're honestly an amazing read. Anyways, welcome again, hope to interact with you and get to know you better.

thank you, aj ! it's nice to meet you.

percy jackson and animal crossing are very good !

i'll have to look it up - i've never heard of it before ! if it's greek-related, i'll love it - if it's roman, i'll love it even more. in school, i had to write a paper once called scipio africanus: il più grande soldato and it was very fun to write.

thank you again ! i hope we get to interact with each other as well.

hey, welcome to bb !! we've... strangely met on a discord server (not the httyd one, but still, a server) but still - i'm mocha, it's nice to meet you (again) !! it looks like we share really similar interests too, so i'll do what hoot did and go down the line:

httyd - i,,, love the books, the moves and the show! i'm part of the "night furies are the best" squad, as generic as that is - but then again, it is the main species, so it's meant to be loveable. kind of like pikachu - sure, it's "generic," but it's generic for a reason. (they're just like big cat-dogs, except with fire)

pokémon - hoenn, sinnoh and kalos are my faves too! my favourite pokémon is volcarona, but charizard is up there for me, so i'd not say you're boring at all.

legend of zelda - my first game was... ocarina of time...? i think? so i'll always have a soft spot for it (and majora's mask, since i played that around the same time). BUT breath of the wild is also my most recent game, and it's so much fun !! the art style is very pretty and i could wander around for hours.

eurovision - portugal WAS robbed, i'd DIE for conan osiris, he ABSOLUTELY deserved to be in the final. i bet it was rigged to stop him because he'd have won if he was in the final and making portugal host it in 2018 AND 2020 would be too much for them. we saw how quickly ireland went bankrupt after consecutive wins... portugal knew conan was too powerful so they stopped him from winning again. ALSO, italy did... super well this year, but you know. mahmood should have won. spain was also robbed this year. and france. and norway. the only thing they did right this year was putting sergey was in 3rd place just like in 2016... it's where he belongs

animal crossing (and harvest moon) - HARVEST MOON. HARVEST MOON. HARVEST MOON. i also love animal crossing (it's so relaxing), but the first i played was harvest moon and dammit, i miss my farm

percy jackson - i read the books as a kid and i really should reread them because they were... so good. ALSO, i saw the words "roman republic" and i am HOOKED i'm by no means fluent in italian but scipio africanus: il più grande soldato sounds like the italian version of something i'd write, so. scipio africanus Is the greatest soldier. that's the answer to the entire essay and i won't accept any alternatives. alexander the great? more like alexander the second best if he's lucky
