indeed they do! Nice to meet another Noah! when I was younger, there was another Noah at our co-op group thing, and whenever we’d pass each other on our way to class, we’d always go: “Hi, Noah!” “Hi, Noah!” it was so fun.

Yep, I know several other ‘Noahs.’ I believe it’s second most common boy name in the US (after Liam)

Ah, yes. Interestingly, Noe is just “Noah” in Greek. I’ve once told my parents the interesting tidbit that Noah is the Anglicized version of the Hebrew name Noach. Noah in Hebrew is actually a girls’ name, tho bc of language transliteration, uh, i’m rambling

Wow, you know your stuff man. 🙂 What got you into the history and developments of language? I love history (medieval particularly) and that has fed a great interest in language developments as well, I just can’t find the time to explore it as much as I would like.

Uhhh, just like a few phrases. I know Latin decently (as in, I know the grammar but have a pitiful vocabulary).

I know a few phrases in Latin that I learned through studying history, but the most prominent one, is, of course, Deus Vult. Latin sounds so esoteric and epic at the same time–especially phrases relating to God like that one.

I’d like to help do to the film industry what Story Embers is doing to the writing industry.

That’s a most admirable and wonderful idea. So you plan on creating courses and platforms to teach and film together? Or would you like to produce your own films as well?

Oh, and my guess as to the name of your organization would be along the lines of kingdoms being set on fire. 🙃

Oh, cool! What’s your channel about exactly?

It’s called How History Could Have Happened (HHCHH). The first half of each video (of which I only have one produced at this point in time) teaches a historical event or set of events in a hopefully entertaining way, and the second half examines different ways that event could have happened. And by ‘examined,’ I mean go crazy with weird alternate histories. xD

The channel will mostly be covering medieval history at this point in time, but I would like to extend my reach to Renaissance, American, and Classical histories as well.

I don’t have enough patience for animation.

I feel ya. I’ve earned many a headache doing it.

Wow, that’s impressive! What’s the series about???

Medieval set historical fiction. It opens with a Norman serf whose home is destroyed by raiders seeking a cube wrought with black steel. This serf attains the cube, and seeks to find the master of these raiders and punish them. More to it than that, but that’ll do. 🙂

Um, my first novel was like *checks* about 75,000 words? For my second one, I have no idea. It’s looking like it’s gonna be 18 chapters, but idk what it’ll be in words. Hopefully enough.

Nice. See, my problem is that the genre I’m writing on and the plot and cast of characters I’ve developed demand long books. The first book in my series culminated at around 190k words, and book two, which I’m working on now and was supposed to be the same length, is growing longer and longer. xD I can’t wait to start my YA trilogy and write some shorter books.

Where did you learn fictional writing skills? Have you taken any official classes, or did you just learn things through the internet and books? I’m always curious where people find their info. I mostly used the internet, plus a few books on storycraft and characters.

*has to look up definition of “gregarious”* Ah, yep. I really don’t know whether or not i’m introverted or extroverted- it really depends on the occasion, I guess!

Yeah, I know what you mean. In my less…convivial mindsets my extrovertness wains.

Y’all own any animals?
