  10. most of my classes are fine but theres one (1) where

    1. the teacher won't grade the short answers to any of our tests, so we have to explain and re-explain to our parents why our grades look like shit
    2. the teacher doesn't answer emails until the day before class, which results in such classics situations as 'cool i now have 24 hours to study for the entire exam, because you didn't give me the class recording or the reading, even though i emailed you about it a week earlier and sent you three follow up emails about it'
    3. the teacher likes to test us on things we have not even seen yet. and then, in the next class. Teach Us What We Needed To Know A Week Ago.

    in conclusion: not the worst class ive been in. but also wtf

    3. conradbirdie


      it seems like everyone here does nhd, wow?? but hey, cool!! what topic did you do, dude?

    4. justaddbooks


      I did mine on the Chicago Handgun Freeze! It was a really interesting topic, but there wasn't a lot of sources and things so my thesis was scattered and my project could have been a lot better. What topic did you do?

  12. Question For The Editors?

    Extra question in addition to this, @Autumn and @CICADA: what about other places to submit? Do you think, generally, they'll take something that's been posted on here as if it's brand new, or does that also count as it being 'published' in a way?
  13. i know i've barely been on here but lemme just say? i had a very sweet old lady all me a 'kind young man' on a day i was feeling like i couldnt physically get to the level of masculine i wanted to and uh w o w that felt good?? i mean, obviously i cried happy tears within the next 5 seconds, which wasn't really the look i was going for kjgfbkjfg

  14. hiatus

    i didn't see this before, i'm so sorry! i don't even know if you're checking this anymore, but i got a discord, so i sent you a friend request if you wanna talk. we'll miss you on here!
  15. new users can't join the slam for free

    Yeah, I agree with everything said before. I'm even gonna use proper capitalization and everything for this because I do really feel strongly about this- Especially with what Logan said about the problem with paying for a subscription. Even if kids can pay for a subscription,we don't have credit cards. (To the best of my knowledge, at least. I'm a kid, I should know, but I dunno what my peers are up to these days!) The Slam is purposefully made to be somewhere that it's comfortable to be totally and completely yourself, and that raises a lot of questions when it comes to getting parents or other adults with credit cards to pay for access to it. Keeping at least part of the site free gives kids a chance to express themselves without having to get permission from other people in their life to express themselves, just as making it pay only limits that chance for a lot of kids. I dunno, that's my major qualm with it, but I also get they need money to keep everything up, so it's all kind of an unfortunate moral gray, I think!

    @drowntown @The Invincible Troodon @queenie_flower @Short_comedian Harley was busy scribbling his number on a scrap of paper to hand to June, but that didn't stop him from trying to pay attention to everything happening at once. That mostly consisted at wincing a lot at Caenus' story and squeezing his shoulder in an attempt to show sympathy without being all overbearing about it. "Oof. That's a good dude. I can give you my shitty makeshift bullet-ish-proof vest, but it's no good for stab wounds. So, like- You're not allowed to get stabbed." Harley looked back and forth between the door and Unit Four, squinting a little, focusing all of his attention on how to best help out this renegade cause without sacrificing his own mission. And, of course, the focus helped keep him present and not wrapped up in a panicky 'time to vividly relive the time you got stabbed' spiral. He was glad to burst into astonished laughter at Nick's offer and Caenus' theater nerd response. "I don't know jack shit about stage combat, but I call next!"

  18. funny childhood stories

    i was a master at lying to myself as a child. a bona fide pro, as evidenced by my "i DONT have a crush on her OR him wanting to kiss and end up marrying best friends is just PART OF BEING BEST FRIENDS" and the slightly less core of my being one of "if i convince even myself that i didnt eat all the cookies, then i didnt eat all the cookies"

    @drowntown @The Invincible Troodon @queenie_flower @Short_comedian Harley did a mini fist pump, already grabbing his keys again. "Sweet. No hetero, June. Phone's in the car, I can just walk y'all down, unlock the whole thing for you. I'll hook up our phones so I can, like, yell info at y'all. Which'll literally just be me pulling up fuckin' Google Maps and being a backseat driver about it. So, I mean, enjoy." He double and triple checked Unit Four's fans, waving absentmindedly at Nick all the while. "It's chill, it's chill, man. Wasn't planning on making it four by coming along, there's no way in hell I'm leaving Four by themself for that long. Wait, fuck-" He looked up at the group, making a face. "Can one of y'all swing by, like 7-11 while you're out? I need to rewire one of Unit Four's speakers. 14 gauge wire. I'll pay you back double or something. Plus I'm giving you guys my car, so..." Still, he was already making for the front door. Even though this would be one hell of a dumb way to get caught if he got traced back. Harley was kinda all about dumb.
  20. oh lore?

    @drowntown @queenie_flower @thepensword Voss was more than a little panicky, but in equal weight, he was just plain miffed. Who was Mop to mess with their little group when they were doing absolutely nothing wrong? Yeah, sure, they had a demon with them, but who didn't these days? Probably everyone. But that wasn't the point. Voss was stuck between wanting to tell off a woman a good bit older than him or just kind of stepping back behind Radish to hide. That wouldn't have been the best cover, though- Trying to hide behind someone almost a full foot shorter than him and, you know, the exact target of Mop's affront. "Let's all take a breather, how about that, huh?" they suggested. That phrase was bound to come out at some point. "McDonald's sounds great. My treat, okay? I think everyone will be a little more calm once their blood sugar's up." That attempt at easing the situation didn't stop Voss from standing up a little straighter, almost reaching out to pull Radish back a step- But hey, probably better not to drag a demon backwards when they were already on edge and hungry for some finger munchin'. "They're not a creature. They're Radish. That's, uh- Their name. Not the vegetable. It took me a second too, no worries. But I've just got this hint of a feeling everyone's going to be a little more easygoing if we all talk nice, okay?"
  21. siren

    this line is gorgeous, wow? this whole scene is gorgeous!

    @drowntown @The Invincible Troodon @queenie_flower @Short_comedian ((oof, second sorry about not replying in so long!) "That poor fucking door," Harley remarked, entirely to himself. Still, he didn't spend any more time fussing with exactly how to place the flash drives to keep them as safe as possible in favor of heading back out to the living room, hands up in a mock gesture of surrender. "Whoa there, cowboy. I'll help if I can, but I need a few quick details. Like- Do you need to take my phone to keep in touch? Do you need my entire fuckin' car or something? I'd say 'bring it back without a scratch' but it was already beat up when I stole it, so- Just bring it back, if you're taking it. And consider the apartment not burned down."
  23. the bad news is that i'm still sick so my writing might be a little off, but the great news is that a crush of mine confessed to me last night so i'm hopped up on the emotion of !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! enough to forget that i'm sick for a while!

  24. oh lore?

    @drowntown @queenie_flower @thepensword ((sorry for the wait, y'all!! just when i thought i was in the clear of having writing time, i got sick rip) Voss was currently trying to decide if he should turn to fully worrying (and thus, insisting on calling everything and everyone 'dude', or 'man', and insist that the group 'just chillax', or 'take a breather, just for a sec') or just address each topic of conversation and cross the worrying bridge once they came to it. At least the second option kept him relaxed for longer. "The best part is when you can combine everything," he mentioned to Radish. He'd really have to ask about the vegetable connotations of that name sometime later. "Gender iss hell, so let's go to McDonald's. Nik, you know you're a gift, right? It's so good to have a plan B here. Especially if-" He turned the corner with the group and- Immediately spotted a displeased looking Mop. On one hand, fuck. But on the other, fuck. So he grinned, obviously. "Hey, Mop! Good to see you out and about. This poor soul got essentially kidnapped by the drama club to test out their makeup abilities, but I remembered I still had some makeup removal charms that my ex left? It's going to be a makeup removal party." This was the dumbest lie he'd ever thought of.
  25. Capitalization

    i usually write poetry in lower case, mostly because it helps separate it from fiction in my mind, if that makes sense? whenever i tried to write poetry with proper capitalization, punctuation, etc. it got too much like prose at best and super stilted at worst, unfortunately!
