Re: Crossing Between Genres

I definitely think authors can change their genre and quite a few have proven successful at it. And I certainly don't expect them to stay put in one literary genre. But I also think one shouldn't change just to say that they did. For example, I can agree on what's already been said of Neil Gaiman an...

Re: Farewell for now

I wish you all the luck with the break and may real life come to some sort of balance. I myself am struggling to balance this website with work and other hobbies and I'm just an first/second year.

Re: Book Bout - Sign Ups

Well, I’m trying to make more time/balance more equally all of my hobbies, which includes HOL and reading, so this knocks out both with one punch.

Re: Thank You!

Thanks for a great activity! I love Star Wars and I had so much fun coming up with Aleema. I'm sorry real life got in the way of me doing more, but I had fun with what I could do.

Scenario A. 1. There was no hesitation as she wrote her answer, lekku resting comfortably on her left shoulder as she slid the stylus across the screen. Clearly, if ten people in the defective pod ensure the most likely survival rate, I place ten in there. I do make sure that it's the healthiest an...

Re: Week 1: Who are you - Describe your Home Planet

Like most native-born Twi'leks, Aleema was born on Ryloth, in the Ryloth system of the Outer Rim territories. The environment is varied across the planet's surface. There are volcanos, forests, jungles, and even deserts, but the largest feature is a wide and dark forest that spans the equator of the...

Re: Week 1: Who are you - Your Clan

When Aleema Siolo first arrived at the temple, it was assumed that she would go towards Heliost clan. After all, even in a short time, she showed herself to be an intelligent and orderly sort, inclined to spend long hours in the library. Not to mention that her family and culture had a high focus on...

Re: Lesson 3 - Discover Some More Words

https://i.imgur.com/WIgTV4Y.jpg I've been somewhat down with all the recent weather. Which is odd because I usually love the rain, but I suppose I'm getting tired of staying in my dorm room so much. Naʃur wanted to know what was wrong and why I was being so lazy and I gestured to the window, saying...

Re: Flash Fiction

Disproving mythology had never been his goal. He probed and scoffed, countered every argument with the devil's advocate and reality's cold truth. But he would gladly switch to believing in fairy tales and urban myths. Anything to prove that his love was still here, just hidden. (46 words)
