Thank you for the fine art & writing ( Just finished reading almost all of your stories, just the last one left for me !), it's nice to see someone trying to keep Neltharion's legacy going on after Blizzard just shrugged him off. Here's to more Nel!

The Bible as a State Book (Gods No!)

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 18, 2015, 11:05 PM




So, I ran across this on a Tennessee state senator's Facebook page...

For those hot on this issue, is making the bible an official state book a restriction on the people or the government? I think the state constitution specifically forbids it but were it not there my question is should it be?



Yeah, apparently my backwards state is thinking about making the Bible the state book.

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THE GODS....HELL FUCKING NO!

Should the Bible become our state book? The answer is no.

Because not everyone believes in the Bible. Not everyone follows that book. Making the Bible the state book restricts the people.  Even in my state, not everyone is Christian!  I'm not Christian.  My mother and stepfather are not either.  This would hurt us a lot.  It would hurt many people who choose not to follow the belief in Christ.  

I have seen what happens when people in the government favor one religion over another to the point where it becomes a law that everyone must follow that religion or suffer the consequences. Freedom of religion means freedom of religion. It means our government must never favor one religion over another.

Also, the government must NEVER enforce the practices of one religion over another.

Also, the question also has to do with whether or not the state constitution should also forbid such a thing.  The answer is a solid YES.  

Are Christians in this state that insecure about their own religion that the only way they can feel powerful is to make the Bible the state book?

And I found there were questions again about the whole banning of the Bible in our public schools.  You know, the Bible isn't really banned in schools.  At least not what I remember.  It just wasn't taught in schools.  However, there were Christian clubs after school where kids could join and have fellowship there.  

There's nothing wrong with having clubs that are about religion, but one thing I did notice that there were only Christian clubs.  Where were the Jewish clubs or the Muslim clubs, or Hindu, Buddhist clubs, or hell...Celtic Paganism clubs?  Or even atheist clubs?

There weren't.  And that's the problem as well.  We shouldn't hide religion, but we also shouldn't cater to one religion.  

Now granted, one excuse was there wasn't enough people of the other religions to organize clubs for them.  Because unfortunately, most people that went to public school in my area were Christian, especially Baptist.

One thing I will say, there are private schools about Christianity that parents can choose to send their kids to as well if they want religion taught in schools.

But public schools should leave religions out.  Because again, NOT everyone is Christian.  Why should only the Bible be the book to teach?  If Christian parents are gonna have a hissy fit over this, then I say, well, if you want the Bible in schools again, you must also include the Torah and Talmud, the Book of Shadows, the Quran, Hindu religious text, Shinto, Taoism, Buddhism...teach it all.  Or even also mention that it is okay not to believe in gods at all.

Or don't teach it at all.

Pandaria Rise of the Sha chapter 17

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 14, 2015, 2:57 AM




Okay, so I have a treat for a lot of you.

Pandaria: Rise of the Sha chapter 17

Because well, it may be a while before 18 can be really written.  I need to work out the finer details of the actual battle between Nel and the Sha of Doubt.

But yeah, the Sha has finally risen!

Rise of the Sha by Ghostwalker2061

I hope the build up was worth it, guys.

Also, a little suggestion for some of my more rabid fans...

I get it, you all really can't wait until I get to the Siege of Orgrimmar and have Neltharion kick Garrosh's ass.  Or perhaps you all just want me to skip all this story building to Warlords and just get to Warlords.

Right?

Because the game is in Warlords.

So, I should just get into Warlords.

Because telling me what I should with the Siege despite the fact that there's still another book that needs to be written before we get to the siege really isn't showing me you appreciate my writing.

It just shows me that you want me to rush, produce crap, and get to the bit you all care about because Blizzard is in Warlords of Draenor...so that means I should be too.

So, fuck it.  I'll just skip through the story and get to the bit you all care about.  

Maybe that's why Hammer got a little short...because some people were again rushing me to get to Pandaria.

Because Coffer was written to be the end of Cataclysm, but it wasn't.  Hammer was the end of the Cataclysm.  Coffer was basically the middle bit where you went to Uldum and had a fun time with Indiana Jones of Azeroth.

Because fuck it.

You know, I'm not getting paid to write these stories.  I'm doing this thing for fun, not profit.  So if you don't mind that I get pissed off at some people for trying to get me to hurry up and get to the part they care about the most.  But I do want to write something that is of quality, even if it's free.  

I get it, I am the only one who seems to be able to write Neltharion competently as a fanfic writer.  And again that's not me tooting my own horn.  I still have yet to see a fanfiction where Neltharion is in either as Deathwing or as himself...that focuses on him as the main character...and that is good.  Or at least finished.

Here I have a story series that has about 5 stories finished, the sixth being written right now over the course of nearly 4 years...and it's all dedicated to Neltharion as well as focuses on the other Aspects.  Mostly Malygos.  But I hear a few people are fans of Malygos.

Malygos the Spell-Weaver Redesign by Ghostwalker2061

He does get a chance to atone for a lot of things he's done as well.  

But fuck the character exploration, when the hell am I gonna get to the Siege of Orgrimmar, right?  Because that's what it's all about.

To which I have to say...



Now excuse me, Squishy needs some snuggling again.

Pandaria Rise of the Sha chapter 16

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 11, 2015, 5:40 AM




Okay, people, good news, chapter 16 is up.

Pandaria: Rise of the Sha Chapter 16


So, here's a thought...

Duality 2 by Ghostwalker2061

Who the hell is Deathwing?

Who is he, what is he in regards to the story I'm writing?

We know who he is in canon stuff.

But who is he in this story?

or who do we think he is?

And then here's the next question.  What would you say if I not only brought him back but made him sympathetic to the reader?  Would he deserve any of that, or even a second chance?

Now, this is outside of Nel.  We all know Neltharion deserves a second chance.  Deathwing is a separate personality that shares Nel's body.  So does Deathwing deserve a second chance?

What would any of you say that Deathwing actually did care about Neltharion?  Or even loved him?

Can he potentially change?

Neltharion the Black by Ghostwalker2061

He is the other half of Neltharion, he is that missing part that even Velen notices.  

Neltharion is incomplete.  He's Nel 2.0, that is a being with only part of the puzzle of who the original Neltharion, Nel 1.0, used to be. 

So, as much as we all hate it, Neltharion does need Deathwing, or at least to take back the memories Deathwing still holds.  To make himself complete...and to potentially create the Merger of Nel 3.0.

  • It's clear that Nel 2.0 sees himself as having a continuous stream of consciousness stretching back to Nel 1.0. In Nel 2.0's POV, he is the same person as Nel 1.0.

  • It's likely the case that Deathwing also sees himself this way. That in Deathwing's POV, he is the same person as Nel 1.0.

  • The difference is that Nel thinks this only applies to himself-- that Deathwing is only a Parasite. Deathwing may be more perceptive-- he may think they both are Nel 1.0.

  • It's possible for both personalities to see themselves as "Nel 1.0", and for them both to be right. For instance, the unique construction of Nel 1.0's mind implies that it's really two minds that were not quite melded together fully, leaving a flaw. And their minds split on the boundary.

  • A merger would meld those two minds together again. If it works correctly, they will become a seamless whole, a single fully integrated mind with no more flaw.

  • This means that Nel 3.0 may see himself as both Deathwing and Nel 2.0, simultaneously. In effect, he may experience himself as having a continuous stream of consciousness with both personalities-- they are both him, both the past version of him. Note that this is independent of what personality traits are dominant. Nel 3.0 might be mostly like Nel 2.0, while still being both personalities, as well as something new. 

Should we even attempt it?  Is it worth exploring?

I dunno.  I'll just keep looking at Squishy's cute face.

Because despite all of his self-image issues and his very low self-esteem, he is still adorable.

Did you hear that Hideaki Anno's been attached to next year's Japanese reboot of Godzilla? www.deviantart.com/journal/God…

I noticed some sly digs at Final Wars in Anno-sensei's words.

Yeah, if you are a member of that place, I would suggest you tell them I don't appreciate it when people don't ask me when they use my art art against my permission.
