that's really cool! I wish i had a cool name
But you do
have a cool name; Jessica is a lovely name, and it's one that Shakespeare came up with himself. And what's cooler than The Bard's work, anyway?

Can you foretell the fate of this forum?
Ha! Well, I'd say that it's going to live long and prosper. But that's not a very impressive prediction, especially considering how may members there are, and how many have been joining lately. I think the numbers are going to keep shooting up as more and more episodes of FMA are shown in the US. But over an extended period of time, I think the number of active
members will wane a bit.
That's generally how it goes; a great anime is dubbed in English and becomes really popular. Then HotTopic starts churning out the merchandise, and the forum numbers explode. But over time, the fan art and fan fiction slows down, and people aren't as active. Sure, they may still be big fans, but they just don't participate like they used to; and the people left behind are the "hardcore fans", I suppose.
Like I said before, my predictions aren't very impressive.

: "Prophetess of doom" sounds like fun!
Heh, what can I say? I suppose it gives me an excuse to use if I ever feel like screaming random things at inappropriate times. I was just "having a vision".

"Welcome to the end.
Watch your step, Cassandra,
you might fa-a-aall.
As I've stumbled on the fields."
Sorry, I was just reminded of that song...
Ah, Blind Guardian
, eh? Are you a fan, or are you just familiar with the song?
