    I Shall Have REVENGE!

    EDIT- And I choose to interpret the title as pertaining to that vengeance.

    A few hours ago. That elevator/lift Smiths scene from (500) Days of Summer. Though it was on the metro and she was reading 100 Years of Solitude.

    Today's been good, and I've not even had my post-Uni cup of tea yet.

    I really wanted to see 500 Days of Summer but I totally forgot why or what it was about. I still think I will watch it.

    as far as dinosaur comparisons go, sure, why not.

    my only thoughts on the matter is that while Raptor Jesus is busy getting nailed to a tree, Dino Sherlock has already caught the bastards and thrown them away for life

    I've spent the last week wondering why everybody's been throwing Stephen King novels at me.

    Then It hit me.

    I spent three days working tirelessly on something. After rereading it, I realized it was crap. Now, my projects are becoming better. I think.

    The role playing forum is mostly dead these days. People just start games seemingly weekly to watch them die.

    The one we're playing has been going strong for a few weeks. It's got enough dedicated members and the next few story arcs are all planned out. It's going to last awhile yet.

    Though CV still needs to get moving with his storyline, since it's part of one of my characters too.

    Have a good new year when it comes, you inactive bastards - hopefully we'll be seeing a few of you (including myself, admittedly) around a bit more in 2011.

    My game is still active, though its a small band and the Harry Potter RP I am about to start is going to be a small band again, I haven't played much in any other games in a long time with the exception of Soul Nova's D&D

    Cool, is it called Hookers on a Stormy Night?

    I actually have a little short story about Whitefall and the characters before they came to Whitefall in Muks old game, it's just random things that happened to us.

    Well, it's actually pretty different from your thing.

    It's just the basic idea of a ship caught on in a storm and survivors in a new land. 'Cept there is only one survivor, ánd she is quickly taken to a strange city full of white buildings where she is welcomed and treated well, but it becomes clear the city as not as utopian as it first seems. There is an unseen ruler and the city is a theocracy worshipping a lesser god, who is summoned and has to grant the girl permission to stay. Eventually she uncovers all sorts of conspiracy stuff and hidden secrets

    I would set it in a Discworld/ D & D -esque fantasy series; so, basically, I'd like to make a fantasy world where I can set a whole bunch of unconnected stories, and this would be one of them.

    Probably won't end up writing it though. I'm terrible at actually putting pen to paper with my ideas.

    Sounds like a good concept, you should write it. I don't know much about Discworld, I haven't actually read any of the books or anything.

    Well, I just meant the basic idea of having a single fantasy world to set a bunch of different stories in. Which isn't the important thing; it's just somwthing I've thought about.

    Discworld is pretty good, though it gets a bit formulaic.

    I meant to check into discworld some but I just never got into it fully.

    I kind of like the idea of setting a lot of stories in a single world, but my world is very similar to the world we live in with the added bonus of fantasy creatures to some degree. Even then I don't know if I could ever set multiple stories in that world
