Yes! The forum/guild (whatever it is) is up!
Wait…am I actually the first non-staff person to introduce myself? Wow.
Anyways…if you’re from KP you might recognize me. Or not. Either way, I’ll introduce myself.
I’ve been writing for about two-and-a-half years and recently finished my first full-length novel. I have since started on another, of course. 😉 The genres I write in include sci-fi, fantasy, and contemporary fiction, among others.
I’m a huge Star Wars fan (probably too huge) and enjoy other popular series such as Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Narnia, and most anything by Brandon Sanderson.
Oh, and I hope to be a computer programmer sometime in the (hopefully near) future.
Okay, enough rambling. I can’t wait to see what lies in store for Story Embers!

Welcome! And congratulations on being the very first non-staff member to roam these halls! 🎉
I’m a Storm Trooper, and depending upon where your loyalties lie, we may or may not get along. 😜 I have much better aim though—especially where poor grammar is concerned.
I love the original Star Trek series. 🙂 What’s your favorite episode?April 16, 2018 at 7:45 pm #30373Sam Kowal@sam-kowal
@supermonkey42 Hiya, Ben. 😀 Awesome to see you here.
Stan is eyeing that X-wing really closely and is already growling deep in his throat which means that he wants to fly it. You didn’t borrow it, did you?

Does your finished novel happen to be the one about the creatures who the characters are trying to explore, but the creatures kidnap them instead? My deepest apologies for completely butchering the premise for the book with that, too XD

@supermonkey42 Yay! Welcome to the Guild! Glad you are here!
I recently finished reading my first Sanderson book which was Mistborn. I absolutely loved the characters. I can’t wait for the sequel.

I prefer to think of myself as living in the Chiss Ascendancy (no, I’m not a Chiss), so I have mixed feelings towards storm troopers and the empire in general. 😉
Favorite Star Trek episode… I really like A Piece of the Action. I think that’s the right title. It’s the one where they beam down to a planet that basically has a 1920s gangster culture.

Borrow? *nervous laugh* I didn’t borrow it per se….
Yes, That’s the novel. Basically. 😀

Yeah, Mistborn is great. The ending is mind-blowing.

Of course you didn’t. Sometimes I can be so mistaken…

@Supermonkey42 I love Brandon Sanderson as well! Mistborn is amazing. I unfortunately haven’t read any of his other books. Do you have any recommendations? 🙂
And a thousand congratulations on recently finishing your first full-length novel! 😀April 17, 2018 at 10:07 am #30582
@gabriellepollack I’m reading The Way of Kings right now, and it’s amazing! Everyone on the planet should read it.

@supermonkey42, You can never be too huge of a Star Wars fan. I myself am one. When I was eight, my alter ego was Luke Skywalker’s secret sidekick/girlfriend. Under his “tutalige” I bear the rank of “Knight of the New Republic”.
What did you think of TLJ (The last Jedi), and this question is for anyone
As for Narnia, I’m living in it right now… IT IS APRIL 17 AND SNOWING STILL!!! >:( (I’m in Pittsburgh)
YAY! Another trekie! My siblings and I used to watch Star trek (primarily DS9 and Voyager)

@inkling-for-christ Nice alter ego 🙂 Did you ever read any of the Star Wars Expanded Universe?
In my opinion TLJ was the best Star Wars movie yet. I thought it was very well made, with interesting plot twists and great character development. But some people disagree, so I won’t judge you if you didn’t like it. 😉
Well, it just snowed yesterday and I’m in Kentucky, so….
That’s funny, those are the two series I’ve watched the least of. I’ve mostly watched TOS and TNG.

The only two expanded world books I read were Champions of the Force and Crisis at Crystal Reef.
TLJ-was okay, for the most part, I feel like they spent too long with the casino and all that. I, however, DID NOT like the end. I thought the battle between Luke and Ren was cool but the end…
Ironically Those were the two I didn’t watch. I mean I saw a few TNG here and there but my siblings and I really tucked in to DS9 and Voyager. (we finished each one in seven months)

@supermonkey42 I’ll have to read it, considering that I do indeed live on the planet :P. *adds it to her list*April 18, 2018 at 10:40 am #30833Mariposa Aristeo@mariposa
@supermonkey42 Welcome! Me and my assistant, Aberdeen the Authorosarus, greet you! 😃🦖Congrats on finishing your book! Sci-fi is my favorite genre to write in. What’s the premise of your finished novel? 🙂
