A Hot Super Temple Mega Love Relationship?
Contributed by Phoenix7
It has recently come to my attention that there may be something between two people of the temple, who have stayed her for quite a period. I talk, of course, about Draco and Enro. Stunning evidence has come to light in which Enro and Draco reveal their true feelings for one another. Draco's was saying, "Oh Enro, I wub you!" And Enro replied with a "Oh my dear Draco! How i longed to hear those words!"
Draco is known to have numerous relationships, with Werebarret, Adnarel and even poor Ian. Some should considor Draco to be like Lily from FOM, who is considored by many, a slut.
Enro was last seen giving lint to Draco as it was all he could afford. But it is said she treasures it dearly. Enro and Draco were not avaliable for comment, but were last seem with lipstick marks on their cheeks.
Thoughts on Fandom
An interview with Kyarorain
Dracobolt: So, for the first question, how'd you first get into Golden Sun?
Kyarorain: I heard about it from some random person's LJ, saying they beat it. Went to look it up on GameFAQs in curiosity and then ended up buying it when I was having trouble finding some other game.
Dracobolt: Well, you obviously liked it. What made you decide to get involved with the fandom instead of just moving on to a new game?
Kyarorain: Well, I started reading fanfiction before I even beat the game and I realised I kept thinking about conversations ingame and such, I was rather inspired, it seems. So I also began writing fanfiction to join in with the fandom and I really enjoyed it. The fanfic was good, I loved the characters...
Dracobolt: You've certainly written a lot of fics, too. Where do you get all those ideas?
Kyarorain: Where should I begin? Well, all the humour fics are just random inspiration but there are more serious fics too. Awakening, for example, came from the fact there are items in the game called Elven shirt and Elven rapier, giving me the idea of elves existing in Weyard. My fic, Vision, was at first slightly inspired by Triad's Paladin's Heart with dream 'angels', but it developed its own unique plot as an AU that I managed to form completely in my mind. Some fics, like Desperate Measures, were actually inspired by dreams (except that fic lacked the plane in the dream for obvious reasons) But I don't trust my dreams much. What may seem interesting in the dream isn't always the same written down, sadly.
Dracobolt: So what are your thoughts on the Golden Sun fandom in general? Do you think it will continue to thrive, or is it on its way out?
Kyarorain: I've seen many forums go down, and the Fanfiction.net section is much slower than it was a few years ago. However, there is a fairly active site specifically for GS fanfiction (as well as a dead one that used to be active.) There are still some active forums around and people still write fanfiction, so while the fandom is quieter than it once was, I think it's still alive. Hopefully Camelot will revive interest. I'm still hoping.
Dracobolt: So, a fic question. What fic concept drives you up the wall the most whenever you see it, and what idea do you think is a good one that isn't written enough?
Kyarorain: The fic concept that annoys me most? Alex survives the Mt. Aleph incident and pursues Isaac for the rest of the Golden Sun. In the beginning, it was because I wasn't happy with the idea of Alex being evil, but now I just consider it to be overdone and cliché. I suppose it's a common idea, but it's still frustrating to see so many people do it. As for a good idea, it's hard to think of something that hasn't been done, but I think Sheba's heritage isn't covered enough, considering people tend to kick up a fuss about it not being expanded on in the game, save for a clue. Despite that, it's hardly ever written about.
Dracobolt: Okay, and to wrap things up, what are your thoughts on yaoi?
Kyarorain: Felix is definitely the slashiest male in the fandom. And he's uke. Always.
Dracobolt: Thanks for your time.

Alex Teh Eval and Ema Skye: Divorced Again!
For the infinitieth (plus one) time, Ms. Eval and Ms. Skye are calling it quits. This time, because the arrival of an old flame of Ms. Eval's, JerryGarcia, showed up at the scene. He revealed that during the ladies' earlier days, Ms. Eval was having a passionate love affair with him. Skye promptly calledfor a divorce, which was granted. Seconds later, Garcia asked Eval for her hand in marriage. She accepted, and Phoenix married them on the spot.
Eval and Skye have three children together, Siklaus, 12, Klaus, 8,and Silena, 4. Eval currently has custody.
After Garcia's spontaneous proposal, Phoenix7, now dubbed the temple's official minister, whipped out a bible and joined the pair in holy matrimony. Skye, still sore about the night's revelations stormed about during the ceremony, causing quite a fuss. She was killedthree times, but resurrected. (she later went on to state that she "pulled a Lachey." No, not the singer formally married to JessicaSimpson.) There were three separate objections, but Eval told themto "STFU."
One guest caused a paticular scene- Hammeh, who, moments after arriving,asking Skye to get hitched. She said yes, and they are currently engaged.Eval has given no comment on the matter.
Ema Skye in date-rape scandal?
Another guest stepped forward with quite a find- ShadowAsianMan located the diary of Ema Skye. One entry that caused quite a ruckus was a detaileddescription of Skye's affair with resident 'it', Lachesis. When Lach himself/herself appeared and was asked about this, he/she has no recollectionof it. Conclusive evidence was drawn that Lach had been drugged duringhis/her time with Skye. However, Skye counter-claimed: "zomg. I NEVER DRUGGED LACHEY!ZOMGZOMGZOMG! LIES! ALL LIES!" (again, not the singer formally married to Jessica Simpson.) Diddy, who has long admired Lach as more then a friend, is devastated by the news.
Alex Teh Eval torn by recent events
After Garcia and Hammeh had to leave, Ema Skye jumped at the chance to speak with her ex, saying she was a 'hawtie' and wanted to 'sex her up'. Eval doesn't know whether to act on Skye's feelings. She says she doesn't know if she wants to get back with Skye because she was 'treated unfairly, and Skye's addiction to Phoenix Wright comes between us. Things haven't been the same since she switched to Mercury.". On the other hand, "the sex was awesome. Oh, and the kids.". We'll see her decision in due time, no doubt.
That ends this installment of Alexandra's gossip-y corner, written by Alex Teh Eval. Remember, you'll only hear it here, because no one else cares!
Oh, and uh, 'til your games be over!
Hide Your Puppies, Bane!
Contributed by Spella
In the chat today, Wednesday the 22nd, a disturbing piece of possibly true information was leaked. A member of the chat was reported to have said "Mercury is evil! Those Quaker pies are made with puppies!" Now, anyone with puppies, I reccomend locking them up until this rumor is cleared up. Or, possibly, proven. Getting in touch with the Quaker chefs may be a tough thing to do! But THIS reporter know no bounds, and will certainly uncover the TRUTH. But until then, take EXTREME precautions. If a puppy runs off, watch it. Install Puppy-Camz!(tm) so you'll know where your dog is at all times!
THIS JUST IN! The Quaker Puppy Pies has hard evidence! Our source has stated that he ate some of this pie, and saw an EAR. However, Draco argued that it was from the baby he'd eaten earlier. HOWEVER, the source continued to say 'I'm not IAN!'. Indeed, most disturbing! Unless Draco can muster up some--Ah! SHE HAS PICTURES! Wait, she refuses to show them. Do they EXIST?! I actually do not believe that our witness would eat a baby, considering he saw a PUPPY EAR!
But is that the end?! NO! Perhaps this can be ended by talking to Adna... Hmm... He just entered chat... I'll see if I can get the TRUTH! UPDATES LATER IN THIS ISSUE!

Monocle Week. Japanese Night. Oktoberfest. Wouldn't a Cat Week be perfectly logical as well? That's what ToK member Adnarel thought, AKA Andycat. Cat Week began early last week. Festivities include kittah avatars, cat sigs, and feline behavior, particularly in the Snack Bar! If you like tuna, cream, or catnip, Cat Week is for you! However, the fun has been met with some naysayers. The Kradenette, Diddy, who wished to remain anonymous, had this to offer:
"Dogs are better than cats."
Now, we can forgive this sort of attitude, but the fact remains that Cat Week has met great success here. As with all Temple nights/weeks, the time frame is not really applicable at all. It will continue to be Cat Week until we get tired of it. For example Monocle Week went close to a month.
Cat Week activities include obsessive grooming, chasing laz0rs, eating tuna and cream, and shredding funiture/carpet. Join in on the fun! Kitteh on the field, Andycat. Miaow!

[Adnarel] You worded that incorrectly.
Q4C Under New Direction
As of September 4, 2007, the Quest for the Cure RP is under the hands of a new GM. After a heated discussion in the chat room where a certain few of the players were accused of moving too fast, Dracobolt decided to wash her hands of the matter since she had by that point lost interest in the RP for various reasons. Control of the RP was given to Bane. Bane had already shown interest in helping with the plot of Q4C, and his ideas were fairly close to what Draco herself had planned. Dracobolt wishes Bane and the others luck in continuing and finishing the Quest for the Cure.
The Temple Weekly News Returns!
After a hiatus of several weeks, the Temple Weekly News is back in business. News editor Draco is finally settled in college and feels ready to return to organizing this esteemed tabloid.
“Well, getting adjusted to a new semester is always exhausting,” says Dracobolt. “You have to get your class and sleep schedules in order, buy books and supplies, and gauge the commitment each class will require. Plus, I’ll admit that Fall of Mars had been eating up all of my free time.”
Dracobolt decided to make this issue the biggest one yet as a way of making up for the lack of issues. She is pleased with the amount of reader contributions to this edition and urges readers to please submit articles, pictures, or anything else. “Don’t think that it’s not interesting or good enough,” Draco says. “Even though I edit the thing and write most of the articles, this is something for all Temple members to be involved in.”
Starting next issue, the Temple Weekly News will be publishing reader-submitted reviews. Reviews can cover fan fiction, games, movies, books, or anything else that can be reviewed.
RUMOR: FALSE! PUPPIES OF THE TEMPLE ARE SAFE!
Contributed by Spella
Earlier today (Wednesday the 22nd of August), a rumor was started that the Quakera pies are indeed made with puppies. So I sat down and managed to talk to Adnarel, a pie chef. After a series of unrelated questions, I got down to SRS BZNZ. Here is the content of our conversation:
[Spell] I was told earlier by... an unknown source... that the Quakera pies are indeed filled with... PUPPIES.
[Spell] What is your response?
[Adnarel] That is false.
[Adnarel] Completely false.
[Adnarel] I, and Sea King, are the pie chefs.
[Adnarel] I can say with every degree of confidence that there are no canines.
[Spell] That is certainly a relief. Most certainly. With every CERTAIN part of my body, that is a CERTAIN relief. I am quite certain.
It's clear that the rumor starter (Who shall remain nameless) was indeed feeding us FALSE INFORMATION. And all to get people to NOT join Mercury. How shameful. However, considering we managed to make an article with this, BRAVO NAMELESS-RUMOR-DUDE! *ahem* Spelly, out. *obnoxious crackle*
Fall of Mars: Behind the Bio
An interview with bane the Lycanthrope
When asked for his thoughts on the RP, Bane said, “I think it's great. Personally, I love the dialogue. I like the characters' efforts to get teh ladies. Also, quite un-incidentally, Fury is my favorite character. Good job Lach.
“[Basil] plans on conquering Weyward. When he spoke of a council, he was serious. He would like a council ruling Weyward. Of course, he realizes the trouble with a council as well, indecisive as hell. After it's over, he'll live in Lemuria's ruins, or somewhere... earthier. Like in a mountain. Unless his group wins the war, then he'll stay with the council. He'd prefer a...quiet life. He would love to bring peace to Weyward.
“I plan on getting him a girlfriend. He's too cool to be left a loner. Of course, maybe it has something to do with me liking a bit of romance with my favorite characters...Anyway, I plan on making him be as big an asset as I can for his group. I don't have any really immediate plans yet, as I dunno where the plot is going, but I'm gonna try and make him be a great fighter, and maybe anger the Mercurians by solving a puzzle or two first... :P”
Dear Mister Advice Guy
Dear Mister Advice Guy,
Every day, I feel sad. Sometimes I wake up from a marvelous dream I have about pies. I don't know what it means, but they are the best dreamz evar!!!!111!1lol!! How can I be happy all the time liek in teh dreamz?
Dear Dreampie, Kill yourself. It's your only option. Lemme try again...
Clearly, since you're dreaming about pies, it means you want to have sex with your mother (father if you're a girl). Since everyone knows that incest is wrong, keep a frying pan next to your bed. Every time you have that dream (or any dream at all, for that matter), hit yourself on the head with the frying pan. Soon, you'll have no dreams at all. Obviously, this won't make you any happier, but it will help your mental health incredibly.
