Also, an announcement: rushthatspeaks has, due to time concerns, agreed to bestow her moderatorship upon gaudior. Welcome, please, our new co-moderator, who is cheerfully kicking me to formulate useful things like, say, rules for combat ^_^]
Himura-san, Muraki-san, Tsuzuki-san, Kurosaki-san, please sit down. (::mutters:: Preferably away from one another.) We are all here for the same purpose: to discuss, and learn about, how we can overcome our suffering from angst.
::waits for named characters to sit down, then walks to the storage area and wheels forward a blackboard, setting it in place to the north of the circle::
The first step in this program is to admit that we have angst. Even so, it is the largest step we will take--together ::he looks at the entire circle, but lingers on those who had begun overtures of combat:: --and some may need to work toward making that first step. For that, we must start understanding what angst is and how it affects us.
Please think for a moment about what comes to mind when you think of angst, and then I would like to ask volunteers to step up and write some words they associate with angst on the board. Under "angst."
