  1. Thought I would just give everyone a quick update, so... 

    Hello everyone! I'm alive. Life's kinda crazy right now, but you know how it goes. *shrugs*

    Everything's been pretty great recently. Super happy, which is always good. :D Hope everyone else is doing well! Reading something good, enjoying life, etc etc. 

    Because I needed an excuse to actually post this, I'm just going to ask a quick question: what's a song that's stuck in your head right now?

      Yay, Ash is happy! 

      Okay, the instant you said that, I searched the back of my brain and Lusus Naturae came up for some reason. So, GNARLED AND MAAANGLED, WARPED, DEFOOOOORMED, THEY SEE NIGHTMARES, A MUTANT SWARM woo RWBY. 

      Any songs for you?

      I’d have to go with Lover, by Taylor Swift. Nice mood, catchy song, good message. :) 

  2. Lopen, skipping and singing: "La la la la la, and the gods live in the lake––" Lopen: *trips* Lopen: "Okay, which cousin was it this time?!" Cousin #726: "Um... no comment, but are you hurt?" Lopen: "Besides my dignity? Nah, don't think so."
  3. I’m probably misreading things, then. Or you are. One of us is usually wrong (with a 50/50 chance).
  4. If you don’t have any plans for her, don’t force it. That being said, she seems like a very interesting character who has seemed to make an impact on the main character’s life— there are a lot of different ways that you could incorporate her into the story, especially if you have a major role which needs to be filled. ( @Ishar, you agree?)
  5. I agree with Ish, but if you have an idea for her, run with it!
  6. @Nathrangking, the story seems incredible! I’m excited to see where this goes. Like some of the previous readers have said, you do go a bit heavy on the adjectives in the beginning. They’re great descriptions, so it would be a shame to get rid of them— my advice would be to spread them out, or tell them in an indirect manner. For example, instead of saying “xyz was warm,” someone could write “he felt the warmth of xyz spreading across his fingertips.” I personally like using the noun form of a lot of adjectives, just because it seems more tangible to me, but it’s really up to preference. You have a few places where you could add some commas, such as the following: They’re not huge grammatical errors, but just something to help out with the flow. Overall, I’m honestly just so excited to see where this goes! The amount of creativity and depth you’ve already reached by creating a blind character is amazing. We so often use sight as the only way to display the world in writing, and by eliminating that sense, you are doing something so incredibly original. I really enjoyed reading this, Nath. Good luck!
  7. Hey everyone, sign up for the Roast Battle Tournament! This round is non-Cosmere, which should be super interesting. :D

      Are you back to running those now?

      @Ishar No, but it’s still my baby, so I’m still going to support it. 

       

  8. Hey, it's not as bad as when I was running this. That being said, I'm super excited to see a non-Cosmere round! Try to spread the word, everyone... it would be a shame to keep this tournament from happening.
  9. That’s so true... for Jasnah and Elhokar, it’s the dad who dies, but that fits every other character to a T.
  10. I LOVE THEM ALL. Don't make me choose. Please don't make me choose.
  11. Yes, just yes. Talos is such a mood.
  12. Okay, honesty, I loved Far From Home. I don’t cry in movies, but I came back home and literally sobbed into my pillow because I NEED ANSWERS, MARVEL. Peter and MJ. So cute. Just... the best. They’re so awkward and wholesome and their relationship makes me internally weep tears of joy. And to think that they almost got their happy ending... that killed me. Cue the sounds of intense agony. Half of the duration of the movie, I didn’t know whether I wanted to laugh or cry. Everyone was like, “Oh, remember when Tony...”, and I was thinking, “YES. Yes, I remember. Because he was— and still is— my favorite character, so of course I remember every little bit. Thank you for bringing that up, but at the same time, how dare you make me relive my pain.” ...especially when Peter got EDITH. “Even dead, I’m the hero.” It’s just such a classic, Tony-style line. I loved it, and I loved the idea of Peter becoming the next Iron Man. The father-son-teacher-mentor parallels between Peter and Tony are amazing. Speaking of, I almost screamed when they started playing “Back In Black”. I don’t think I was the only one, either. The way that Happy looked at Peter when Peter was designing a suit... he loved his boss, and working with (not for) Peter is bringing him back, in a sense. Also, Jake Gyllenhaal is awesome. Just going to throw that in there. I hate Mysterio with a passion, but Gyllenhaal did a really good job with the character. When the next Spider-Man movie comes out (which is way too long, in my opinion, but I seriously can’t wait for the Black Widow movie), here’s what I want to see: The scene opens, and Peter knocks on the door to the Stark residence with Happy standing behind him. We hear a chair screeching against the floor as it’s pushed against the door, and a little girl looks through the eyehole. “Mommy!” calls Morgan Stark. “Uncle Happy’s here, and someone else, too!” Pepper opens the door— after ensuring that her daughter is safely out of the way, don’t worry— and immediately crushes Peter in a hug. “Are you okay?” she asks with concern. She’s seen the news, and even if she doesn’t know the kid that well, Tony talked about him enough to the point where she absolutely knows that he would never murder Mysterio in cold blood. “I’m fine,” says Peter, even though he’s clearly lying. Pepper invites him in before greeting Happy, who’s been incredibly busy, so she hasn’t seen him in a while. Edit: I forgot to mention my love for Tom Holland. He makes the perfect Peter Parker, and he’s adorable and gorgeous and I could talk for hours about how amazing he is. Sorry, I’ve gotta cut this rant short— going to see the movie again.
  13. Why?

      it happened when you weren't on... I think

  14. Hero, you’re amazing. Excellent music taste, by the way. @Paranoid King and @I think I am here., those roasts were incredible. That was an extremely hard choice... Because of both @Herowannabe and @John203, this thread has become the best it’s ever been. I can’t thank you guys enough for how much you’ve done— you’re the real champions here.
