  • @daeus-lamb Aw, okay. The guilds were fun while they lasted!

    Goodbye, Parimi Alca. Thanks for all the great memories. <3

  • @beth20 @arindown @rusted-knight @kimlikesart @anne_the_noob14

    Tagging everyone (I think) who is involved in this currently!

    I decided to write Marlowe looking at the mirror, but I’m having a lot of trouble figuring out her character. I’m thinking about making a topic, but if any of you have advice or comments, I would appreciate it.…[Read more]

  • @rusted-knight @anne_the_noob14 @beth20 Forgive me if I got any details wrong. I’m still trying to familiarize myself with all the characters. 🙂

    The book in Marlowe’s hands was readable. The kings and queens of olden days kept their peace in warring ways… Some sort of history? No, just a poem. A poem in her native dialect. Either she had s…[Read more]

    @evelyn It did go smoothly! We recorded the video in one day and it aired the next week. Everything was well put together and I enjoyed it.

    Thanks for your enthusiasm! The story that I’m editing is the first in the five-book series! My last few beta-readers are going through the book and I have a friend who is going to help me figure out how to…[Read more]

    @evelyn I had an online graduation! It was not what I was expecting at the beginning of the school year, but it accomplished what it was supposed to. 🙂

    Ah yes, driving. I’m getting more comfortable with the activity, though I’m nowhere near ready to get my license. It’s awesome that you’re making progress, though! It will be exciting when you…[Read more]

  • @beth20 Thanks for the summary! It did help!

    @anne_the_noob14 Okay, thanks for keeping up with everything! You’re an excellent second-in-command. I think it is a good idea for you to do the next topic if more people join because I can’t promise I’ll be extremely active.

    @rusted-knight Wow, I like the symbolism in the mirror. I will have to use…[Read more]

  • @anne_the_noob14 Oh goodness, you guys really had fun here. xD I’m so sorry for disappearing off the face of the map. I was working on finishing up school, but that isn’t really a good excuse for not checking in every now and then.

    Would you mind giving me a little summary of what has happened so far and who is currently involved? If you don’t…[Read more]

    @evelyn Hello! It’s so good to hear from you! I am doing quite well. Having graduated high school, I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going to do with myself, but my blog has been a good creative outlet.

    How are you? What’s new?

    • YOU WHAT
      *screams*
      xD

      @ariella-newheart I came to your profile to say, hey! How are you doing? Because I was thinking about a bunch of Parimis this morning and boy I am so happy I did.

      • @evelyn Hello! It’s so good to hear from you! I am doing quite well. Having graduated high school, I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going to do with myself, but my blog has been a good creative outlet.

        How are you? What’s new?

      • @ariella-newheart Wow, congrats on graduating! That’s one huge accomplishment. Did you actually get a ceremony? 😛
        What’s new… driving? xD
        I finished my driving course over this whole pandemic thingy and now I’m keeping track of hours and am about one fifth of the way to getting my full license. Beyond that, finishing this year of school,…[Read more]

      • @ariella-newheart Oh interesting! I heard that some people were doing that… did it go smoothly? Did it feel sufficient for wrapping up lose ends?

        Oh yeah I’m /very/ excited. xD I’ll be planning coffee dates, and museum and hiking trips like every week.
        (okay not that often but still pretty often xD)

        Ooooh WOW. YOU HAVE TO KEEP ME UPDATED. Is…[Read more]

    • @ariella-newheart That’s fantastic! I’m so glad it worked out.
      And I guess the bright side is that you have bragging rights that trump everything “oh yeah i graduated in the great pandemic of 2020 which meant graduating online” 😛
      Reminds me of the old saying “when I was a kid we had to go uphill to AND from school” or something like that……[Read more]

    I just realized I forgot to describe Marlowe’s appearance. She fairly tall, about 5’10”. She has black hair pulled back in a sleek, high bun, dark eyes, and olive skin. I believe her personality type is ENTJ, but she vacillates.

  • Ariella Newheart posted a new activity comment 6 months, 1 week ago

    @anne_the_noob14 AHHH THANK YOU SO MUCH! I do have a few questions!

    First, did you notice any useless side plots or rabbit trails that I could potentially eliminate, or did all of them help strengthen the main plot? Second, do you have any predictions/thoughts regarding the foreshadowing about Ariella’s identity and origin?

    Regarding that last…[Read more]

    • 😀 😀

      Hmm… Not really. If there were any, they obviously didn’t stand out to me lol. Let me think… Yeah, I think they were all strengthening!

      Predictions and thoughts… oh gee. Let me see. I forget if I said this specifically earlier, but I really like how you keep throwing more and more little tiny pieces of where she’s from and all. That…[Read more]

  • Ariella Newheart posted a new activity comment 6 months, 2 weeks ago

    @anne_the_noob14 Oh, thank you so much! I saw that you had left a few comments.

  • @christlover Yes, Marlowe is the manipulative character. At least, she can be if it suits her. It will be interesting indeed. I haven’t entirely figured out Marlowe yet, but she puts on different masks for different people and situations, which means she’s very good at reading people, too. It has become automatic, so there’s no thinking involved.…[Read more]

  • Marlowe Reynolds was in complete control. She stood on a rooftop overlooking the assembly hall, taking note of each ambassador who walked in and out of the large, triangular gateway. Her list would be valuable. The Commodore wanted to know who was in the building at all times—who was present for votes and who skipped them. Who paid homage to the E…[Read more]

    @april-j-rhys You’re welcome and thank YOU! You’re helping to make this story the best that it can be and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate that.

  • @anne_the_noob14 Aaahh, I see. In that case, I think I’ll bring in Marlowe just to test the waters. I need to get to know her character anyway. 😀 (I think I’ll try to write later tonight.)

    As for Caedon, yes he is from the same world but unfortunately from a different timeline than the one in the book you’re beta-reading. There are several…[Read more]

    @april-j-rhys Greetings! Thank you for the well-wishes. I hope the same for you.

    I completely understand that part about dropping off the face of the earth. I have done it myself a couple times. Thank you for reaching out again, though. I would love for you to continue beta-reading. I did a major overhaul of the first few chapters, adding in…[Read more]

  • @anne_the_noob14 I like the details you put in that fighting scene! Dharin seems like an interesting character. I wonder what would happen if I brought in a female character who has no patience for his antics. Or one who would try to manipulate him. (I have one character who is very adept at putting on different masks for certain situations and…[Read more]

    I have made the topic on the Fantasy Writers group. 🙂

     

  • At the center of the Land of Stories, where all genres converge, a splendid structure stands high on a hill. A remnant of ages past, it has remained untouched from the very foundation of the world. The ancient stonework, a medley of different architecture, most resembles a Victorian castle. Enter through a door of weathered green wood and you will…[Read more]
