    Well, I’m homeschooled so nothing has changed there XD

    Ah. I was/am also homeschooled, I’m just taking some advanced classes in a career placement high school.

    But it did slacken up a little again. HEMA resumed, which is awesome. Also I have my first tournament tonight, which is both terrifying and very exciting. It’s a rea…

    Life is going pretty well though. Trying to keep my new year’s schedule, and mange my time properly. You back in school or still at home thanks to your government?

    Hey Noah!

    How is life? School keeping you busy as well? Weather cleared up any? 🙂

    How is writing? Did you get that one character figured out?

    @emily-waldorf

    Seriously, though. I was having trouble with the first quarter of my WIP, and something you said got me thinking, and I might have a change coming (and a huge rewrite, but if it’s better, who cares?)

    OOoh, that’s cool! Big rewrites are scary but worth it!

    Poor Farran…that sounds marvelous! How long has he liked Liorah?

    Oh dear, no! Qatar wouldn’t do that. It does get me thinking though…

    I was just thinking because perhaps possibly some of… a friend’s characters might have done that XD

    That’s what I would have guessed! I want to read that one soon, but I have to work through some other books, and I thought I’d better give Dickens a break. Ha…

    Ha! It oughta be good! Do you have any triangles in your writings?

    Counterfeiter. :DDD

    Oh, good. I thought it was murder. Oh, wait, wrong reaction. *clears throat* *shocked gasp* Qatar, how could you??

    So he’s a fun person to write, then!

    Extremely!! Writing him is an excercise in writing subtext since he seldom actually comes out with anything villianous obviously.

    Ooh, what is your favorite by Di…

  • Hmmm…very interesting, the gigantic quotes at the top of the page. I can’t say I don’t like it, though.  Is that what happens when you play around with quoting someone, lol.

    So he’s a fun person to write, then!

    Ooh, what is your favorite by Dickens? Do tell! My favorite part was Sydney Carton. And I also really loved how he portrayed both sides of the French Revolution. You sympathized with the peasants but hated their deeds, and despised the aristocracy, but couldn’t…[Read more]

    @noah-cochran

    The more I think about it, the more I absolutely agree with you (and I do remember Liorah tugging on her tassels in the character castle several months ago I believe)

    You remember correctly! She does that a lot, and so does her brother.

    I was already kinda feeling like my Jewish character didn’t feel that Jewish, so something like t…

    Actually, making your character wear tzit-tzit has quite a few literary perks.

    @noah-cochran

    I would argue, though, that the way these laws were obeyed varied (such as some only using tassels during prayer–as I read somewhere),  and were stricter or took too far in different times (such as the Pharisees literally tying phylacteries to their foreheads).

    You have a point. Observance varied from stricter to less strict, but ev…[Read more]

  • @rose-colored-fancy

    Whoa, hold on. I’m going to contradict you on this one

    Interesting, I didn’t consider the law factor, that’s a good point.

    That’s just…madness. xD

    The only correct word for it XD

    That’s the kinda stuff that I have a hard time finding out if they kept through the middle ages. For the most part, I think the average Jew did not (usually due to assimilation), but it’s difficult to find out for sure.

    I wish that was an exaggeration, but there’s no way to fake the sprints and I know how carefully they check it. It’s legit

    That’s just…madness. xD

    I think something else that I’ve never seen before are just the little details like all the characters wearing tzit-tzit

    Hey now, I have good excuses.

    Ha, excuses, excuses XD

    You started it.

    Quote me correctly, sir, I was competing against myself. You made it a race XD

    One person wrote over 60k in one week? For real?

    Also, I don’t have to listen to someone who replies to things during class and doesn’t pay attention. *Evil grin*

    Hey now, I have good excuses.

    Don’t make this a race, I warned you I’m competitive XD

    You started it. 😄

    Oohh, your Hakan sounds facinating! Seeing him interact with Quin would be so interesting!

    that’s cool. What does he look like?

    Not like yours XD Dark hair, really tall, light blue eyes. He usually seems pretty nice until he kicks into villain mode for any reason, then he’s horrifying. He’s perfectly willing to resort to v…[Read more]
