  1. I read this as "Flirting with your flightleader, Cobb, that would be great" and got very confused/concerned lol
  2. I'm going! I'm not busy that day so I can make the hour long drive to Orem. And can someone explain WoB to me?
  3. My Sanderson story: In the eighth grade, I went to a Michael Vey book release party. Four other authors were there with Richard Paul Evans, one of which was Brandon Sanderson. Steelheart had just been released, so Sanderson was talking about it. I thought "hmm, interesting." I later checked it out from the library, then unfortunately didn't finish. A few years later, I had a gift card to Barnes and Noble and didn't know what to get with it. I saw Steelheart and said "I never finished this, I'll give it a shot." A few months later, I finally started restarted it. Well, I loved it so much I had to read Firefight and Calamity, and then when I ordered Skyward online as soon as I could. And now, here I am!
  4. So I just had this thought: What if Prof directed a play and David was the stage manager? This resulted in a series of vignettes I wrote between David and Prof. My friend wrote a couple of these so I will post mine and then post the ones she did. Spoilered for length, this has no actual spoilers. Mine My Friend's One We Both Made
  5. Who had also purchased the bat cave on Ebay.
  6. This komodo dragon is named Jeb Do I need to understand the majority of this thread in order to add anything to it?
  7. I like these ideas, thank you!
  8. I was wondering if anyone could provide some input on the magic system in my novel. It's not fully fleshed out yet and I need some help developing it. The wizards in my novel have certain types of magic that they are born good at, and others that can be developed over time. There are also aspects of it that they can never master (example: A character who is born exceptional at influencing the elements. They struggle with telepathy, but they can still perform it to some degree. However, they are never able to shapeshift). My question is: What could be a determining factor of the magic they can and can't do? My friend had the idea that it could depend on genetics and ancestry, say someone who's ancestors were from Antarctica had power over heat and fire. Or we had an idea that maybe wizards with different powers came together in clans a long time ago and they all migrated to different places, meaning that where you're from could determine your power set. I'm just trying to come up with a better plan for my magic system, since it's not very together at the moment. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
  9. I would not be opposed to a fourth book where all of these things happen...
  10. I believe so, but apparently especially in Utah
  11. You can stimulate a cranial nerve in your brain (called the vagus nerve) by singing really loud There are some weird muscle names, but my favorite one is the gastrocnemius. You'd guess it's in the stomach, right? No, it's in the leg. It is illegal to detonate any nuclear weapon in Utah
  12. Glad to hear you're doing better!!
  13. Will do! I'll get my actual score in about 4 weeks
  14. Thanks for all the tips!! I go in to take rhe ACT tomorrow. Fortunately I'm pretty good at English (I score around 30-31 on most practice test, the highest possible is a 36) and also we're taking them online this year, so I have the passage on the left side of the screen and the questions on the right. Science is alright, I just need to watch for minor details that might trip me up. I'm reviewing a few concepts tonight before bed, but I'm getting to bed early tonight so I can be refreshed and awake when testing starts. Thanks for the test-taking tips and study tips, I'm hoping for an overall score of 28. Hopefully I do well enough on the stuff I'm good at that it makes up for the stuff I'm not great at, but I'm still reviewing what I struggle with one more time tonight!
  15. Steelheart_666_Blazelit_Yolo should be someone's username on here lol
