Hello!

My name is Epsilon and I'm an artist just always looking for new places to be around.
I greatly enjoy meeting new people, talking about my latest hyperfixation, discussing art and all that stuff.

Hoobies include:
- art
- cooking and baking
-listening to music (like...a lot)
- spending a whole day watching youtube videos
- watching movies and shows (everything from cartoons, anime all the way to dark and disturbing horror things )
- videogames

Always open to answer questions you might have and super happy to be here

@Hachi: Thank you for the warm welcome and thanks a lot for the link to the newbie guide!
I have already discovered the event but I am struggling a bit with it since the game just doesn't continue at the end of chapter 2 . I'll probably see if this issue has been reported before. But since Araikou tried it and it worked for them I'm guessing its a problem on my end (pop-up blocker is off and I could finish chapter 1 without issues).

@EpsilonPhi: hmm that's interesting. what browser are you using? and are you on desktop or mobile?
i've heard there's a glitch with ch 2 unless you talk to the conductor while standing to the left of him, I think haha

@xvz: Ah, thanks for the welcome! I think I'm slowly getting the hang of everything, but I'll make sure to ask should there be anything that's not clear to me.

To answer your question: The last two things I made in terms of baking were my rendition of subway cookies with white chocolate and macadamia nuts and I made waffles for my family when I visited them last time. In terms of cooking I made some pork with a mushroom and cream sauce over green pasta (you know, pasta that's green? ) :)

@hachi: Oh! I will try to stand on his left side then next time I try to do chapter 2. Because so far i always stood to his right. But to still answer your questions: chrome and desktop.

@epsilonphi: ofc! i remember feeling confused and a little overwhelmed when i first joined, don't hesitate if you find anything unclear :-)

oh that sounds really tasty!! white chocolate and macadamia do go well together ... ! cookies are a nice go-to for me but i usually do chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin (sometimes w chocolate or walnuts if i have em!) do u use a waffle maker for the waffles? ^^

oohh the green pasta that's made w like spinach?? it's been a bit since i was last on my pasta kick but it's due to come back around soon :3

@xvz: I usually also just do regular chocolate chip cookies because macadamias are really expensive. But I wanted to treat myself!
I did use a waffle maker, specifically a waffle maker that gives you heart shaped sectioned waffles :)

And yes! spinach pasta! It's really good, but goes best with mushroom sauces if you ask me.

@epsilonphi: awww heart shaped waffles!!! that sounds so fun :3
yeah tbh i don't usually see macadamias around my grocery store but maybe i'm just not looking for them haha

oh i haven't tried w mushroom sauce but that does sound good! i usually keep frozen meatballs + peppers and a jar of sauce on hand for pasta emergencies lol
do you usually cook for most of your meals?

@xvz: I cook for myself from mo - fr and on the weekends i'm at my parents place for dinner. Sometimes I cook things that are a bit more complex but mostly it's grilled cheese or canned tuna, canned corn, onion clices and cheese on top shoved in the oven :'D That's mostly because I am having a hard time cooking small portions and I don't want to throw out too much food. I grew up in a family of 5 so when I started to learn how to cook it was always large portions and when I moved out I moved in with someone I was in a relationship at the time. And since then I have never lived alone for long until I moved to my current apartment 2 years ago. :'D So cooking for one? Yeah that's really hard.

@epsilonphi: oh i loved canned tuna haha - how do u usually prep it?

do u have a freezer? :3 i cook for one and i often will freeze things for my future lazy self (lol) - although some foods defrost better than others
or will just have leftovers for a while ... lol
although you know what, i think it usually goes the other way where i might prep more stuff at once and freeze prepped ingredients, but then cook servings that will last me like ~1-3 days ? (thinking face emoji trying to figure out what Do i do??)

how are you enjoying the event so far? ^^ i think it'll be ending tuesday but the forums and currency will stick around for another week after that :-)

@xvz: Whoah hey, sorry fopr the super late reply.

Sadly my freezer is super small so all I can do is keep prepped foods in the fridge for 2-3 days. So no prepping a lot and just freezing it uwu;

Also, now that the event story is done:
I hecking loved it. Character design is so good and well written and the riddles and all those things were really entertaining! My favourite characters are the white knight and white king. <3

@xvz:
Ah, honestly my week has been not so good but I'll maybe make a vent post about it in the apropriate forum.

I did get one of each item, yee. And I love them. Can't wait for the next event and see what they come up with <3
And yee, Veles seems pretty cool. I still don't know everything about all NPCs here but I guess i'll learn more over time :)

@merynia: Hey! Thank you ^-^
