      I can laugh at it now.

       

      The bruises are gone but I don’t think I’m going to step into that house for a long time nomatter how much I love my grandparent.

      Well between getting conked in the head by 1970’s ads in boxes , three outdated encyclopedias and essentially covered in every single issue of 1981’s readers digest surprisingly not.

      What’s the title of the book that was dedicated?  It sounds like it would be either the best read ever, or a major disappointment.  With the parents the author claimed to have had...

      I have never been quite certain what exactly the Oxford comma is… but I’m going to assume that it has something to do with Merle Haggard’s two ex-wives, Kris Kristofferson and Robert Duvall… and the rest of those outlandish claims :D 

      And I’d also like to know the title of this book, just for reference :D

  9. A fun little adventure.

  10. Here’s a language funny.

    If Tomb and Womb have the same sound

    then shouldn’t bomb be pronounced Boom?

      Not to mention cough, rough, dough, and bough.

      Also, I’m glad they called it a vowel shift and not a vowel movement.

      “Bomb” typically pronounces itself “boom,” so there is that.

  11. 75% done. Haha!

    1. Desiderius Price

      Desiderius Price

      Dunno what you’re up to, but good work!?

  12. Fun fact and a bit of trivia

    The first mention of orange as a color was in 1502 and was a description of clothing for Margaret Tudor

     

     

    1. WillowDarkling

      WillowDarkling

      and to add to that :D  the fruit was originally called a norange, but some scribe messed up and changed it to an orange, and it stuck… :D

      same thing a nadder changed to an adder and a nickname used to be an ickname

      ::*whispers* tell me you watch too much QI without telling me you watch too much QI::

  13. It was supposed to be a cute series.

  14. Anyone remember how terrifyingly effective this wonder was?

  15. 60% done with the revamp. Had to rewrite and shove things into book 2 and three lol

    So there’s that.

      Like rolling dough thinner and thinner, every time I “rewrite”, things inevitably get longer.

      Its true though. Absolutely is that age old question brought to life.

      Why are things happening? Because people are flawed drama llamas living in a world where gods and monsters are active make no pretense of being human or having human values and the horrors of the dark age just barely passed.

      Characters w/o flaws?  Tends to make for rather short & boring stories.

  16. An interesting thought… Are we the Fae?

      Personally, My money is on who has the greater authority. average faerie vs vamp defintely money is on the faerie

      An elder vamp vs faerie= probably the elder vamp

       

      A primal vamp vs faerie noble probably closer to an uneasy armed truce rather than any feeling of Tea time.

      So, who supplied the tea?  I’d wager whoever poisons it is more likely to come out on top.

      That’s the thing. Following the rules of hospitality means it’d be more of who spiked the wine of the vein =p

      Assuming that doesn’t breach the rules of hospitality.

  18. Editorial Review came back. :errm:

     

    So I was correct to put mature warning. They enjoyed it… For a middle novel.

    :jaw::behead:

     

    So before I launch any website I have to go back and revamp it so it fits a first book feel

    rather than a middle of the series vibe. :alien:

      ….

      Think of it like what happens if you wrote the two towers

      Before the fellowship of the ring.

      Or Harry Potter and the order of the phoenix before  harry potter and the philosopher’s stone.

      Or even the empire strikes back

      It sounds like they want a bit of world building or stage setting up front.

      Well, not super bad then, I mean, there’s a certain popular film franchise that started off with episode number four.
