Are you sure about that? Care to explain?
@TheoAllen I got this from Long live the Queen Here's my favorite scene with emoji I'll probably spread it through multiple comments):
Elodie: Wait! We're civilised people here!
And if I have to die... I need to compose myself first
You have only one chance for this, one hope to touch the heart of the man beneath the monster.
You know so little about him, but he is a father who was once a musician. Music may reach him somewhere where nothing else can. And so, you begin your favorite song.
You were afraid that he'd be impatient and order you to stop, but for now he's listening
Togami: Pretty. What is it?
Elodie: Something my mom used to sing to me
She was the Queen. She was always so busy, but she loved me
When she had time to be with me, to hold me, to play and sing... I miss those moments
Togami: Are you CRYING? How pathetic -_-
Elodie: Don't you sing to your children?
Togami: That is no business of yours.
Elodie: Isn't it?
If we fight - I defeat you somehow, then your children will miss those songs
Togami: Well then, perhaps you had better lose
Elodie: And what happens then?
Togami: What? -_-
Elodie: When you've killed me and taken my crystal... What do you do then?
You've come from nothing and made yourself a King, but that wasn't enough for you. So you pushed the boundaries, conquered territories, came after Nova.
Elodie: After me, do you go home to your children? Or do you go after ANOTHER crystal, ANOTHER domain?
Togami: Be quiet -_- You know nothing the world.
Elodie: You HAVE the world! But if you're not happy, WHAT's the POINT?
From shocked murmurs on the part of Shanjian delegation, you can guess that no one has dared to talk to the King like this in a long, long time.
You hold your ground, meeting his eyes with yours - you're WILLING him to listen to you.
But it doesn't have to end like this You and I - we can be friends. We could learn from each other
We could be part of something greater than ourselves. A new peace
And you can sing to your children
Togami: I... have not sung for a very long time
Elodie: I'll teach you my songs! ^_^
You hold your hand to him, open and empty.
Elodie: We can do this... Together ^_^
For a long moment, he stands frozen. Then at last, he sighs and places his hand in yours. And just like that, the war is over
Lol, an epic way to end war.
I know But in case someone doesn't see the thing, this is a better example of how emoji can turn something serious into something funny:
@EpicFILE: Shut up or I'll kill you.
@EpicFILE: Shut up or I'll kill you
As you can see, the first one sounds like a threat, the other one like a tease...
And even if I use @EpicFILE: Shut up or I'll kill you , it still looks better than without any emoji at all, because emoji gives it a kind of joking look
Which makes me wonder why in the world did that blackmailer use emoji when she was threatening me...
Of course for any nitpickers I have to note, I don't have any intention to kill @EpicFILE! So if you find him dead, it wasn't me
Ya. When we talk, we send so many subtle signals. It's easy to identify the motive behind the talk. We don't get as much signals in text. Emoji is a good way to subsitute the subtle signals we lost in a text.
Separate names with a comma.
