      Hi friends and family of Rooster Teeth. I'm not normally one for this because of the fact that I'm a prideful doucher, but I'm sort of running out of options.

      I've been unemployed since the end of June after the number of hours at my job were cut to an average of 2-4 a week. Since then, the job market's been a bit rough, and on top of that, I found out the regular child support payments used to help in my going to school ended in May, which really pulled the rug out from under me financially. Now, I do have several interviews lined up and am hoping to be employed again by the end of September, if not earlier, but right now, I'm in a bad spot.

      I have bills coming up in 8 days and no feasible way of getting the money to match what's needed. I'm not one for handouts and won't ask for them. If I could draw, I'd open commissions, but I can only write decently well. And as it just so happens, I do have two novels published that I think are pretty neat, and hope you guys might be willing to check out.

      Right now, Amazon Prime has my first book at $13.46 and my second book at $10.16. If you like mystery, I encourage you to check them out. If you like Sherlock Holmes stuff, I definitely encourage you to check them out. If you aren't big on reading, then just sharing the books would make a monumental difference.

      If you want a sample of the writing before making your decision, there are a handful of stories available on Wattpad for both books, readable here and here.

      I truly do thank everyone and anyone willing to help in advance, because every gesture helps. If you do help, I really hope you like what you read, and I will be extremely grateful.

      Again, thank you all for your time. I love you guys. smiley12.gif

      Here I am thinking, "Did somebody bribe a bunch of people to start sending me friend requests or something?" but then I looked at the front page. Neat.

      Hi. I'm James. I write books and stuff.

      Stay awesome, people of Rooster Teeth.

      Who has two thumbs and in about a month a copy of two different books that they wrote to hold in each hand?

      5 years ago

      James

      I know that everything is abuzz with E3 news right now, but today holds far more personal significance for me. Two years ago today, I officially dropped out of college with no intentions on returning. This started what can undoubtedly be described as both the best and the worst summer of my life, because in that summer, I attended both RTX 2012 and RvBTO 2012. Both of these were opportunities I wouldn't trade for anything. But starting before, during, and after that summer were also some of the worst months I had ever experienced in regards to my mental health, to the point where even while attending those events, I went to extremely unfortunate, extremely selfish thought processes.

      But now that brings us to today, where I have officially completed a full, uninterrupted year of school. Three terms of classes, no breakdowns, no packing a car and leaving before finals. Start to finish, there for it all. And I'm already anxiously awaiting the return of classes in the fall.

      Two years can make an insurmountable difference, in many ways. The time I took off allowed me to take a more clear and logical inventory of what I wanted to do with my life, and now I'm in a department I utterly love and look forward to working in once I graduate. In that time, I gained a better understanding of what I want out of my life. I came to know myself so much more clearly as an individual. There are certainly some things I would change from how that summer of 2012 progressed. But the ideas and lessons learned are invaluable. They're the reason I'm able to stand taller today.

      So here's to the past, the present, and the future, and all the joys and misfortunes they brought, are bringing, and will bring.

      One year ago today, I got to hold a copy of a book with my name on the cover. I never thought it would happen, but it did. And it made these past three hundred and sixty-five days pretty swell.

      Here's to the future.

      When this website started, I was still an only child. That puts it into some serious perspective.

      Congratulations, Rooster Teeth. Thanks for being the second, or in some cases first, home I needed. Here's to the next 11.

      Hey James! I keep hearing about you all over the site. When I asked people who would be a good candidate to be in this comic I did, everyone said "JamesKryack" with some serious fire. Personally, I love hearing you on the Weekly Speak Podcast and I was really introduced to you through "Kryackisms" and that video where you're on sleeping pills or something and yelling "God Bless America!"
      A good first impression so far, I gotta say.

        Kryackisms just created a friendship, James.
        THAT IS THEIR POWER.
        You're welcome.

      • James Volume III

        7 years ago

        Well I'm flattered to be apart of the comic! I saw the first one and absolutely loved it. Would've made a comment but I've been pretty busy the past few days. I'm glad you've gotten a good impression of me, even through the drugged out video. It'll be awesome getting to know you in return!

      I have plenty of niches, but it's like...most of these people are pathetic, and THAT's what bothers me. I don't want to assosicate with a site where 30 year olds pick on 19 year olds (and younger, sometimes). It's not even that they all got together to neg bomb my profile in hopes it'd make me mad, because it didn't. Just this site has gotten SO pathetic over the years that it's so depressing.

      Many of my best friends I met on here, before the trolls took over, and I will be grateful forever. But...its annoying.

        I can understand not wanting to feel bullied, or like people are neg modding you instead of using their words like grown ups. However, perhaps you should look at it from this point of view.

        When you are choosing to present yourself to this community (or any community for that matter) solely with pictures of yourself that seem to have no real goal other than to say, "look at me, compliment me, I am so pretty" then you can't really pretend to be surprised when you get a negative reaction from some people. And it is easy to call those people jealous and pathetic because you get to feel better about yourself.

        And some of them may be exactly that. I don't know everyone who has ever neg modded you so I can't say. But I do know that this site has not been taken over by trolls. That the reason some people don't like seeing photos like these is because they have learned to expect something more from the prominent women on Rooster Teeth. When they are getting the impression that your sole function is to post pictures and get compliments then their first reaction will be "wow, that girl has no substance."

        These are people who would rather like you for your personality. For what smart or funny or interesting things you have to say. But the message that they get is that you don't seem to see anything else in yourself besides your looks, and their reaction is that its a bit pathetic.

        I hope that you see more in yourself than these pictures seem to say. I generally like the other girls on this site. We tend to be witty and well spoken and generally a little more socially ept than the boys. But I am also proud of the male friends I have made, who did not approach me cause they thought 'OMG ur hawt" but because we had common interests. They hold me to a high standard and I try my best to live up to it. But they are going to hold you to the same standard. I personally am happy that it has very little to do with my looks.
