The younger kids will remember her for years to come :)

We've actually discussed that many times. The images and people we remember from our very early years are strangely influential. It's like magic. This sort of thing will never seem weird or negative to them. It might spark a creativity a child would have never developed. Who knows? Either way, I think creating magical, childhood impressions is a noble act.
That is one of the best bits about working in a toyshop now..... there are children as young as three how, specifically come into thje shop now to see the "pirate!" ..... the parents get confused sometimes when I explain that I dress like this normally, and I am not dressed up like a pirate for work.

She got fed up with it and left.

She is a better person than me, then.

Maybe I should wean myself off.

The environment just lost its appeal for her. It had to do with philosophical differences. She has not disappeared. She has just gone elsewhere.

Actually, it seemed to be a mutual thing. Some members of The 'Box got on her case about her abrasive attitude, which she directed mostly at newbies who she felt were acting dumb or asking dumb questions, and then she got fed up with that, and split. To the best of my knowledge, she has not posted on this incarnation of The 'Box (edit: using her own account, since I've seen a few Tara posts made using Wyatt's account). Additionally, when Ms. Katherine Rose picked up the attitude slack after Tara left, pretty much the same thing happened, though I'm unsure as to whether or not she's also completely split from here.

i'm really surprised something like this would be posted here, considering how much the Shadowbox is bad-mouthed on Violating Voices.  oh, and Katherine doesn't come here anymore, because she can't be fucked to deal with people she considers unworthy.



oh, and very cute article.  Tara's very talented, and i love the design of her new character Jasmine.  wish i had the ability to do stuff like that, but so far i hate my body too much.

Why, oh why, would the good people over at Violating Voices waste their time and energy doing such a thing?  That seems a bit counter-productive and petty.   Also, Caddy, would you do me a huge favor?  Katherine said a few things about me in the early pages of "Who Would You Invite" that I have long wanted to use in my personal text area, but I forgot what it was.  As I recall it, it was something about me having a one-track mind.  I liked the exact wording of it.  Now that "the other forum" and Katherine have been brought to light here in this thread, it seems like an appropriate opportunity for me to follow up on this.  If you could post it here in this thread, I'd really appreciate it.  Thanks.

Devery is able to write, which is, unfortunately, a rarity. However, she suffers from a pretty chronic case of tunnel-vision.

not really.  i doubt anybody cares what the people on VV say about them (except for Devery, i guess).  i just think it's really weird that something about Tara would get posted on a place she pretty much hates.

is...is that irony, or something?

It's not strange at all considering the creator of this thread.

Fucking hell... thank you, cheese man.

I am a shadowboxer. Ataraxia is my girlfriend. If someone else was my girlfriend, I would speak of their significant happenings too. Also, I wouldn't consider what a few people say in a group to be the testament of the entire forum. Tara doesn't hate shadowbox. She just wants something it can't offer. I don't hate Shadowbox. I post here regularly.

It's weird I would post it here? Why does anybody post about their significant others? Why would I refrain here? Believe it or not, there are shadowboxers I like, she likes and we like who are not members of Violating Voices.

Now, if I was to post it to Len's PM box... that would be weird.
