@the-unwavering-writer of course! We’re so happy to have you here!
I was a huge fan of the art style of the movie. A lot of cg movies nowadays look bland and uninspired, and sometimes just plain ugly. I thought it was super cool how they were able to have a cg movie that really captured the feel of a comic book, while still managing to be so…[Read more]
“Truce?” The goose snapped at the crackers, loudly honking as it ate. The Shrike looked down at the bird with some mixture of disgust and curiosity.
Is it really that fat, or is that mostly feathers?
Perhaps if he fed it enough, he could see for himself. The pigeons around Spire didn’t seem to mind if people touched them, but they were als…[Read more]
So, I think the character castle is probably a lot less active now. I’m not sure how many characters you’re already familiar with, so I’ll just give you a quick overview 🙂
Ok, so right now we have Ferran and Liorah, who belong to @rose-colored-fancy
They’re from a medieval north-African fantasy setting
There’s also…[Read more]
@the-unwavering-writer Hello! It’s great to have you here! I’m calidris, and I like birds and art, among many other things 🙂 I haven’t seen many marvel movies either lol. I saw one that wasn’t especially good, and I also saw Into the Spiderverse (the one with miles morales) which I absolutely loved. How did you like it?
I have a coup…[Read more]
@the-unwavering-writer thank you! I never really thought about it, but I can see the resemblance lol
@mischievous-thwapling a lot, I think 🙂 I don’t know if I’ve introduced myself, but I’m calidris, and I’m semi-new here lol. Would you like a run down of the situation?
“You don’t know what a goose is? Where are you from where there are no geese?” Kongar asked. Chantara snorted disdainfully. The Shrike smiled grimly.
Wouldn’t you like to know…
Kongar grinned at her mockingly. “Well, farm girl, tell them.”
“Tell them yourself,” Chantara snapped. Kongar raised his eyebrows as she gritted her teeth.
@arindown Me too! Or rather, I was in the middle of a lotr reread and then I got distracted lol. Who is your favorite character?
I did see it! I really, really love your charcoal work, especially the animal portraits 🙂
I think that I like stylized art. I don’t do well with photo realism, and personally I think that it’s kind of… I don…[Read more]
calidris replied to the topic Hello! Is anybody in the mood to critique a short story? 😀 in the forum Fantasy Writers 1 week, 4 days ago
@wingiby-iggiby of course! I’m glad I could help 🙂

@wingiby-iggiby I would be up for that!
I definitely agree with showing more of Isaac’s thoughts. I think that it would help me to connect with him as a person, and also could help reveal some background, such as why he’s forced to “doll” people for the carpenter.
One of the things that I noticed was that you have a lot of description, which…[Read more]
@noah-cochran he can watch from the sidelines and make sarcastic commentary lol
Although, if he has any sort of weapon he can probably find a way to participate, if he wants 🙂
Kongar rolled his eyes, throwing up his hands in exasperation. “I was kidding. Someone’s missing a sense of humor,” he laughed. The Shrike shrunk back, arms locked around his knees.
“You do know what a joke is, don’t you?” The words sounded distant, and yet they cut painfully close…
The joke wasn’t even that funny.
Chantara snorted. “You do…[Read more]
Ferran shrugged. “There was something just before you came, but that might have been you.” Misu shook his head.
“It wasn’t me. I don’t have the ability to make Rifts.” He sighed. “Oh well. There’s nothing we can do now. We’ll have to be careful. Any Rifts that he left behind were opened hastily and dangerously,…[Read more]
“Don’t worry. That wasn’t mine. I don’t have any knives. They just fall from the ceiling every so often.” The Shrike gazed up at Kongar curiously. That wouldn’t be the oddest thing I’ve seen so far…
A small knife suddenly fell. Kongar cursed as he ducked to pick it up. Just then, a second knife clattered to the ground, spinning on the cold…[Read more]
@arindown aww thanks 💕 what kind of art do you like to do? I’m very happy with the design I did for Manwë 🙂 He’s one of my favorite characters. You should definitely try reading it! It’s kind of hard to get through, and it’s super depressing, but I really enjoyed it 🙂
@rose-colored-fancy exactly! In my story, reality is composed of this collective element that makes up this things called the Veil, which is basically the fabric of reality. Rifts occur when a hole is torn in the Veil. Misu can only pass through Rifts, not create them. Because this element as massive amounts of potential energy (think like…[Read more]
Wings and eyes…
Wings and eyes…
Wings and eyes and – The Shrike flinched as a knife suddenly sliced through the air, clattering on the marble besides his feet. His gaze dropped to the blade, vision blurring with unshed tears.
I can’t escape it.
This place is worse than Spire.
He pried an arm from his knees and gingerly touched the blade, on…[Read more]
@rose-colored-fancy oooh sounds good! I just wanted to clarify: Liorah would absolutely know if a Rift had been opened… *flashback to the Shrike’s dramatic entry*
As soon as everyone’s settled I might introduce another character – we’ll see if he gets tired of his warm welcome at the villain castle first lol
@this-is-not-an-alien yes please! I’m very lost right now lol. Your impression of the Shrike is spot on – and yes, he’s definitely more dangerous when he’s scared. Is Meira literally made of glass? The idea of a glass warrior is so cool! Also, just be warned, I might pull out the Shrike soon – I eventually want to enter him into the char…[Read more]
