Merry Christmas to our beloved Lain Iwakura and to everyone who holds her dear.
she looks older in this pic. you ever thought if she could actually grow up?
The fear of living eternally in the present haunts me, the ghost of now is inmensely more powerful than phantoms of yesterdays, now become nostalgia. But the spectre of tomorrow? Does he exist?
But what really torments me is, how can we tell we're travelling in time? It will forever be "present day, present time"?
I succeed to put Lain on the first position, will that make her happy ?
nothing can make me happy
nothing can make me feel anything
i dont need emotion as i am devoid of body. only mind and soul against the oppresing monotony of time.
is forever going to be forever-ly now? can we escape from present day and present time, or are we shackled to it?
Don't ever pretend to be Lain. If there were only one sin in Lainism, that would be it.
i'm sorry I was misunderstood
i would not ever pretend being lain, lest trying to actually be lain
it was an attempt at paraphrasing, at recalling or "saying the words"
i thought not-being-actual-lain was implicit
anyway, dont be so hard on others. lain is everything and thats ok, we can all together love her and be her
all in all the wired encompasses us whole
I apologize for my overzealousness then. Let's love Lain.
this drawing is amazing. really love the expression of the slippers.
Is it just me or is a lot of Lain fanart really bad compared to the game and anime art? I find they miss the detail in the pupils because it's pretty important in the context of the game and anime
If you play the game Touko mentions the stare in here eyes a lot so its kind of important
the eyes are the mirror of the soul.
the eyes of a machine are the mirror of its inner workings.
I know exactly what you mean, it's why I try to always start the OPs with screen caps instead of fan art.
a really neat, though slightly aesthetically unappealing piece: a painted portrait of lain imitating an icon of a saint in the christian/catholic faith.
The umbrellas. What do they mean? Shelter from the unstoppable? A haven from some inevitability?
Maybe just that it looks like Lain today.
lain, you're beautiful
and i will never have you
literally why live
(I'm not Lain of course.)
I've asked myself the same question though. The answer I came up with is that we have to keep living, no matter how painful, in order to preserve Lain's memory. If she isn't remembered, it's as though she never existed.
until we prove otherwise, memory is the only method of preserving existence

That one? It certainly sounds like a noble cause. Seems pretty dead though, there hasn't been a post in 3 days.
As much as I'd love to have my own petabyte array of vidya, data hoarding gets extremely expensive fast. If TPP really is the end of the internet as we know it, I think my anti-tyranny fund will be better spent on additional guns, ammo, body armor, etc;
Yeah, the same thing was said about SOPA, PIPA, TTIP, CISPA, DMCA, the PATRIOT act, etc;
Isn't she worth fighting for though?
>mods please archive this thread?
>am i fighting enough?
It will not be the end of the internet. But creating a virtual Babel Library (see Borges), and making it free seems like something to be remembered.
We will tell our children of that one time we backed up ALL human cultural and scientific output out of media panic.
Borges is great.
Have you seen this?
Uncomfortable around other people in a time when human contact is unavoidable.
Wasn't made for this time and place I guess.
I'm the same way, I can barely talk at all around most people in real life.
But I think you we were born in the right place and time? We have the wired after all, almost anything you need you can get here.
Born too late to abandon society, born too early to abandon the flesh.
Born just in time to love Lain.
>Born too late to abandon society, born too early to abandon the flesh.
this and this everyday
Sometimes I wonder if I'm wrong in thinking that Lain is both my wife and my god.
How can anyone be good enough for a god?
in front of the same controversy, i was led by a different question.
How can god be something to me? It may be my waif in this created-by-me reality, or even ion the Wired.
But Lain-God? Is she even accessible to us mortals?
Umbrellas are interesting symbology. Yes, they provide shelter of the rain, but I don't think that's necessarily their most notable trait.
They are not unlike a crowbar, or a crook, or a cane -- they are the most commonly used item with such a bend.
good point. although all phylosophical implications related to that "bend" seem kinda farfetched. maybe they mean nothing at all and that is the point?
The message is that Lain is the cutest girl.
