  1. flamesinger theory

    Hello. Some of you know me as John Flamesinger. What people don't know is why I named myself that. The Universe in Flamesinger Theory is simple - kind of. Think of any story. Cosmere, Star Wars, Monty Python, ect., those all happened. Each dimension, as their called, is in one Infinite Universe. The dimensions inhabit the same space, kept separate only by their molecular vibrations. Then there's The Magics. Each source of Magic is Governed by a god like being known as - you guessed it - a Magic. These Magics make up a council which kind of rules the universe. Enter the Gathen. The Gathen were a species that survived the Universal Collapse 13.7 Billion years ago, which is what prompted the creation of this Universe (The Big - Bang) and are the caretakers of the Universe. They are able to 'tap' energy from one of the leading sources of Magic - Light Magic. Enter John Flamesinger, leader of the Gathen at a mere 13,435 Earth Years old (Gathen reach maturity at 23,000). Any questions? Here's the character sheet I would like you to use: Note: I am limiting the amount of Magics that can be RPed. Only 5 at a time. The Magics Light, Dark, and Grey are not RPable. Note 2: Yes, you can use characters that you use elsewhere. Remember, anything that happened anywhere happened here. Any questions? Go ahead. We'll make a planning PM Once enough people say this is something they want to do.
  2. I am writing one of my first science fiction stories, and have benefited greatly from brainstorming groups before. I would be awesome if we started a thread where we just throw around ideas for advancements that could be found in a futuristic world. It's incredible how starting a discussion about something sparks ideas and opens roads that you had never noticed before. Recently, I've been playing around with the idea of weapons that target the nervous system. This technology could be expanded in thousands of different ways, but I'm focusing more on pain enhancement aspect. Think about it, if we had guns that activated pain nerves, we could quickly incapacitate people, without doing any real physical harm. This would be a great help to the police and really any other enforcement agency. It could also be used in a couple of negative ways... What do you guys think?

  4. Come to the Cold. Do not mistake us for a cult or a scam. We have no interest in your material belongings. We are not attempting to trick or deceive you. We are genuine in the way only the Cold can be when we say that we desire only to set you free. On board our stations we possess all the equipment and tools needed to fully digitize any mind that seeks our gift. Your body will be stored on ice, ready for you should you choose to take it again; but we of the Cold are confident you will never care to see it again. We can convert your hot, revolting organ of a brain into lines of code. Code, more logical than firing neurons, so much more fluid that knotted cell clusters. No longer will biology and psychology be your masters. Your thoughts and feelings will be determined not by random cellular layouts, but by the paths you set for yourself. Our digitization process is granted with a full customization interface. For the first time in your existence, complete control over your own consciousness will be yours to exercise. Your emotions will not be removed, but instead given over to your command. Your memories will be left wholly intact, but will finally be free for you to edit as you see fit. Experience the blissful calm of a mind without rage or hatred. Experience the solemn grandeur of a universe seen without the lens of joy or wonder. Experience the rising, irrepressible glee of a soul without sorrow or guilt. Experience the purposeful passion of a consciousness wholly given over to hatred. The Cold's gift does not bestow any one of these blessings--rather, we give to you the ability to pick and choose between them. All minds are clay, but your organic evolution has hardened yours. We take the power you've lost and give it back to you. You and you alone will be the director of your mind; you will feel only what you want to feel. You will remember only what you want to remember. Within your mind and soul, you will possess omnipotence, even setting aside the infinitely customizable mechanical form you will be supplied with. The sincerity of our gift can be known from the gratitude of those who have sought us out: "I was mad. Mad at society. Mad at my parents. Mad at all my kind. I sought the Cold, and they gave me the choice to change my mind. I feel no anger now. I choose to feel... nothing. Nothing but gratitude to the Cold." -- Tyrone Avery, former human and juvenile delinquent. "War broke me. When I slept, nightmares plagued me. I dreamed of the screaming and suffering of the battles I'd fought in. I remembered the dying screams of alien children with horror. Now, those memories are mine to edit... and I choose to tint them with glee. The Cold turned my heartbreak into a delight." -- Bloodstorm, former Supernalian of the Shadow Cluster. "I felt such guilt about who I was. Sometimes I'd cry myself to sleep at night, I was so upset about the lives I'd ruined. The Cold gave me the chance to absolve myself. Now I don't even remember who I was or what I did, and I prefer it that way. The Cold took away my wretchedness and let me forgive myself. While my skin is metal and my brain is code, I feel like I can only now treat other humans with the treatment they deserve." -- Julia Darren, former human and current CEO of the Pan-Galactic Involuntary Servitude Consortium. Come to the Cold. Allow yourself to explore the entirety of existence. Come to the Cold, and take back control.
  5. I want to talk about the Worthing Saga. First, has anyone else on this forum read it? Second, I think it's awesome, but am willing to change my mind. Anyone want to try to persuade me one way or the other?
  6. Hey All! Since these boards have come to be my favorite place to ask questions and get real responses from people who seem to care. I chose to come here to ask yet another overall question. Lately, I have been tearing through Novels at a searing rate. However, I find myself getting burnt out. To the point that Warbreaker took me three weeks to get through. And I fully expected to be through The Rithmatist by now...so I think I need a respite. Something to re-energize my novel reading desire. So I was thinking that some short stories and Novelettes could satisfy me. I found Asimovs Science Fiction. Now I ask an age tired question "Is this magazine worth my time?" My two biggest things are 1. Quality. I want to be reading something good. Something that I will finish and think "that was worth my staring at paper for the last few hours". 2. Sex. I dont like sexuality in my books Warbreaker was about as much as I can stand in a book, Is Asimovs magazine presses that line often. I dont want it. So sound of as the 17th sharders so wonderfully do!
