So i join an awesome rp as a NightWing dragonet with an amazing backstory. This other dragonet (Moonflight) gets a crush on me. Then i find a stone talon which is part of a sacred statue in her den. I save us from evil by peicing the statue back together. <p> But when i get a position of authority, she ha<_>tes me as if i ki<_>lled her mother. She says that she knew about the stone and that she could read my mind. I never knew anyone could lie so much. She says that i destroyed her den on purpouse and then aparently she makes up a prophecy that was practically tooken out of book! I mean seriously people, if you're gonna make a prophecy, at least make it up yourself. She quite litterally took it out of a book and changed the last sentance. Wow. Just wow.
