1. Re: Interracial relationships - are they actually possible ?

      No, humanity already done bonked and now we're stuck with the consequences

    2. Re: Evil Genie

      As the genie is also a masochist, it begins to moan in anticipation of the next wishes. I wish that the genie be placed in a sensory deprivation tank filled with numbing solution.

    3. Re: Evil Genie

      Huh... Does the air smell differently to anyone? It's like... You know? Greg? You there, man? Anybody? Why's erron' sideways? It's like we're all falli...

    4. Re: Evil Genie

      You follow the road to its end, tripping as a loose brick turns under your foot. Looking to your left and right, you see the step-down cut into the earth from the surrounding grass, creating an indented (...)

    5. Re: Much-needed Tag

      Y'all, we need a "Crafting" tag, since that genre or element is growing. Please? For ease of finding?

    6. Re: A Revelation about the Book of Revelations

      I am so glad to see this thread didn't devolve into a theological debate. I guess, yeah, in the ultimate destination of a new heaven and new earth, it is a bit of an isekai

    7. Re: Skipping the first chapter of isekai novels

      I get where you're coming from, especially if there's little initial introduction to the character an the character's past is never referred to. One thing I'm trying out is periodic cutscenes back to the (...)

    8. Re: a question about inspiration

      Hmm... Most of my moments of inspiration occur in little sparks that flit through my mind at random times. Frustratingly, those blips are ephermal and, if not written down, will likely be lost, regardless (...)

    9. Re: Your silliest sentence? (Live, my darlings, live!)

      Technically > 1 sentence, but still: "His eyes flicked open. Gone were the Egyptian cotton sheets and alarm clock. As a matter of fact, there was no mattress either. In its place was a grassy mound (...)

    10. Re: The Penguin Below Me Game

      Aye! I'm tired o' all the whinin' an' fussin' comin' out the mouths o' these here younguns. Online school this. Online school that. If'n ye recognised yer good fortune t' have a schoolin' ye might (...)

    11. Re: Interracial relationships - are they actually possible ?

      Without going too deep (bad, unintended pun), there are a number of factors that should probably be considered (I'm largely basing this off the factors that drive speciation IRL): - Physical compatibility (...)

    12. Re: Calling all Serial Writers, The 2021 April Fools' Swap is here!

      What if our serial is still getting off the ground and might not have enough material for someone to run with/spoof from?

    13. Re: Writing a series where the mc's are not overpowered.

      Non-OP MCs are always good to read, as they, to a degree, anchor us back in the everyman. What I've found that helps to maintain that nature includes not having some sort of leveling system (explicit (...)

    14. Re: What things that make you quit reading a novel after serveral chapters?

      MC going to a magical academy. So long author; I've lost interest. Who's writing stories where you learn this several chapters in? Most magical academy stories are pretty up front with this being (...)

    15. Re: What things that make you quit reading a novel after serveral chapters?

      And yeah, I know there's the "Sexual content warning" but it's kinda useless. A story could have only rare, light nudity and kissing and have that tag. Skipping stories with that warning would skip over (...)

    16. Re: What things that make you quit reading a novel after serveral chapters?

      This is mainly a problem with books I pick up from conventions and not anything traditionally published but SHUT UP about the female characters’ boobs oh my god we get it, the author is a man just shut (...)

    17. Re: Why did you choose your username?

      It's the city I grew up in + a key part of how I identified myself for the longest time (MK - missionary's kid)

    18. Re: Best and Worst Movie/TV Adaptations of Books/Comics/Etc, Go!

      Hmm... Don't really have a Best, though LotR gets an honorable mention (too many Peter Jackson Tweaks to be called best). Worst would be Eragon. Most disappointing would be The Hobbit Series (You can (...)

    19. Re: Hard Magic or Soft Magic Systems?

      edit: it occurs to me that this is a similar debate to the idea that scientific explanations strip wonder and meaning out of the world, but scientists are often the people that find the most wonder (...)
