Look, it’s a place that’s red.
Red works very nicely with dragons.
So I suppose I should briefly introduce myself, although half of you probably remember me. That chair-melting, wants-to-rule, somewhat-sarcastic and ENFJ dragon. Snapper. To those of you who haven’t met me, there’s that description to sum me up. And perhaps a more formal entitlement below.
I’m Danielle, sci-fi writer. Right now I’m working on a sci-fi trilogy, and am working to send out query letters this summer. I can’t stand tuna fish. I love salmon. And I blog over at https://silverphoenixwriter.blogspot.com/.
Fair warning: I will melt your chairs.
Now, about you all. 😛 Here you can ask me anything. Look forward to interacting with you all again!

Look everyone, it’s the famous @snapper! *bows* I’d give you my chair to melt but Aberdeen sat on it and broke it. 😠😜 Do you melt broken chairs?

@snapper There she is! 😀 Poor tuna. Come to think of it, poor salmon.
Also, I just about can’t wait to hear more about this sci-fi trilogy thing. 🙂 Are there sneak peeks on your blog? (I haven’t visited in a while 🙁 )April 17, 2018 at 10:20 am #30593Ben P@supermonkey42
@snapper *bows* I am pleased to make your acquaintance once again, O mighty dragon. I beg for your mercy, that you might spare the life of my humble (and quite comfortable) chair. I will forever be in your debt.
(Nice GIF, btw 😉 )

Ah, the legendary @snapper. I’m delighted to officially meet you! 😀 I admire your chair-melting ability, because sitting too much can cause health problems. I tend to sit on the floor with my iPad while working though, so I’m afraid you can’t save me from certain death. And I’d ask that you please not burn a hole in my floor. That might be disastrous.
I was a staff member at KP as well, although I tended to lurk in the shadows. But that’s because there’s much to do in the shadows of any great endeavor—like fending off typos (which can cause diseases like miscomprehension). 😉
I look forward to seeing you around! Would you like to share the premise of your sci-fi trilogy, or is it top secret?

Nice to meet you, @snapper! I’m also an ENFJ, kind of, except sometimes I’m an INFJ. And I hate salmon, love tuna fish. Lol!

Hi, @snapper . I see you’re melting chairs as usual. That’s why I brought a massive ottoman for all of us to sit on. An ottoman, after all, is not a chair. 😉April 17, 2018 at 12:50 pm #30662Sam Kowal@sam-kowal
😀 H’lo! Do you mind coming and melting this chair that Stan is attempting to melt? It’s taking him too long.
*nom, nom, nom* *eats donuts*
Oh, are you hungry? *begins weeping*
I would have saved you one!April 17, 2018 at 1:19 pm #30681Cindy Green@cindy
@snapper When I saw your thread title, I immediately thought, “Oh no she’s here too” and then burst out laughing. It just wouldn’t be Story Embers without our Dragon Snapper!

@mariposa Now, now Aberdeen. We can give you structurally reinforced chairs to sit on, but don’t take Mariposa’s. But yes, I will melt that chair so we can reuse the material and make a new chair.
@rolena-hatfield Tuna can live all they want, as long as I don’t have to eat them. Along with beans. But yes, poor salmon.
Well, I was going to have sneak peeks, and then I became overly paranoid of having my story in the internet, then I stopped being paranoid and haven’t gotten back to making a WIP page yet. Which is a complicated way of saying, “Thanks, Rolena, for reminding me to make sneak peeks about my novel.” 😛 Below is the quick premise.
@supermonkey42 *examines chair* I suppose this one can be left alive for now.
@briannastorm And the equally legendary Grammar Nazi, Brainna Storm Hilvety.
I don’t know, that floor looks quite tempting. Are you sure I can’t melt it? 😐
Here, *jazz hands* is the elevator pitch for my novel.
Ike, the son of a military architect, must destory the very country he once dreamed of ruling.
Voila. –@rolena-hatfield Behold, the premise of my novel.
@scribbles Hi, fellow __NFJ. Always wonderful to meet another __NFJ. 😛
@overcomer *glances at ottoman*
An ottoman, after all, is not a chair…
Or is it? *smirks*
@sam-kowal Here Stan. Huff and puff and blow the chair down. Sam, maybe if Stan can’t melt chairs, he could freeze them? Does he have any ice powers? 😉 *offers Stan a bonfire to melt things with*
@cindy Bwahahaha! That’s awesome. 😉 I’m glad I could be here. 😛

@scribbles Well, chair-melting is something that started in the Kingdom Pen forums, in which we had a thread called the Writer’s Corner, where we would have word-wars. One day, I was completely not-satisfied with the amount of words I wrote, so I melted a chair.
Then I melted some phones.
And I’ve been melting chairs ever since.
But of course, I can’t stand spiders so I’ll gladly melt them too. 😀

@snapper Ahhh, so there’s not a deep, philosophical reason for selecting chairs as your melt-ees of choice, just a history. 😛

@snapper Maybe Aberdeen and you should go into business—he breaks chairs and you melt them back together! 😅
I owe you my deepest gratitude and life-long devotion for melting the spidies. 🕷 *bows* How about flies? Will you melt those too? Or ants, centipedes, bedbugs, cockroaches, or really any kind of insect (except butterflies, oh, please don’t melt them).
Oh, so that’s how you got started in the melting chair business. *scratches chin*
