    Welcome to fantasy writers!

    What random\fantasy stuff would you like to talk about?

    I AM afraid. I'm glad that I am. That tells me I need to be brave. ~W.M.

    hoio @jasmine

    umm the fact you can make things up like sicknesses and mythology and stuff is really fun.

    Although doing research for real stuff is helpful but now I know rndm info about, cystic fibrosis, patellar tendinitis, and pneumonia XDXD

    Is it weird that I also know random things about cystic fibrosis??

    Could you tell me more about those other two, though? I’m always open to new and deadly diseases to give my characters. 😉 My brother had pneumonia when he was little, but I don’t know a lot about it, and I’ve never heard of that other one.

    yea I don’t find that weird. My uncle had it, and I’m most likely a carrier for it. And I have a book chara that has it too XD

    there’s two different types of pneumonia. One that starts with bacteria and the other I can’t remember. I believe the one that starts with bacteria is contagious but I could be wrong. (It’s been a while since I’ve done the research lol) One would find it harder to breath, lose their appetite, and get chest pain (and some other stuff) and if it gets too serious the lips and fingertips of the person turns a grayish blue.

    patelar tendinitis is technically not a sickness. It’s the swelling of the patelar muscle in the knee. Athletes like volleyball players and players of other sports that include a lot of jumping specifically get this.

    Theres other types of tendinitis like in the elbow and others muscles too.

    Hope that helped lol XD

    @emma-walker

    I think my mom has some kind of tendinitis, though I might just be thinking about the research I did for my science fair (really, really glad that’s over!). And a hearty welcome to StoryEmbers!

    This is so crazy. I know a ton about cystic fibrosis. I’m related to two people with it and there’s also a family friend that has it.

    Do y’all have characters with it?

    Be weird. Be random. Be who you are. Because you ever know who would love the person you hide.

    That’s awesome!

    I mean the disease is terrible, but it’s kind of cool to know someone that knows what it is and includes it into their writing. I would love to hear more about this story for sure!! 😉

    I got to make up an illness for my WIP and it is really fun! (That sounds awful XD) I didn’t do much research for it, I kinda just made it up as I went. The only problem was I grossed myself out with one scene as I was writing it XDXD

    My next story I’m planning to write will include some sort of severe brain damage.  I haven’t done much any research on that though. Pneumonia will also be in that story I haven’t done research on that either bc I’m trying to finish my WIP first so I’m not overwhelmed. I would also love to hear about your knowledge on that as well. I will be doing my own research on it, but discussing it with someone that knows info about it would be very helpful!

    Yeap, although I wouldn’t know anything at all about cf had my uncle not had it.

    Yea um it was originally created with a friend and I just roleplaying. She had been using one of her contemporary characters, and at the time I didn’t have a contemporary chara so I completely made her up on the spot XD

    the roleplaying turned into a cowritten story, and it was a snippet  series on the YWW although I don’t think a snippet has been posted in a while.

    Its a super fun story though, titled Into the Unknown.

    That’s really cool, I have also created a sickness, although it hasn’t been used as often as I have wanted.

    Woah. XD intramesting lol

    @emma-walker

    Both of my siblings have it. I know you’ve done your research, but if you ever have questions about cf or what it’s like living with one (or in my case two) people with it, I am more than welcome to help out!

    I love doing roleplays XD I feel like it’s a great exercise for character development.

    What are your favorite books and authors? ( I saw your second intro, but I thought I would just ask here:))

    @erynne

    wow that would help a lot, if you could just explain yalls lifestyles I’d appreciate it.

    Yas roleplaying is soo funnnnnn

    hmm I love the Princess Academy series by Shannon Hale, and the Mandie books by Lois Gladys Leppard, and OH THE GREEN EMBER SERIES by S.D Smith is amazinggggg, also the books by Gail Carson Levine, and I can’t forget Pride and Prejudice. There’s probably more but that’s a start. Wby?
