Klein walked through the rubble. The dust had mostly settled by now, coating his armor in a light grey layer. And it was quiet. Far too quiet. His experience told him that there was no way all the enemies had been killed in the blast. A few had survived and were either still recovering or repositioning.
To his left, there was movement. Snapping…[Read more]
Seeing your thoughts more throughout this thread, I’m curious as to why making a natural ability “ritualistic” would turn it from okay to not okay, and how much you consider individual intent vs objective reality to matter in a “magic” system.
Sanderson’s systems are on a spectrum of natural and supernatural that you can’t really…[Read more]
Lorcan was honestly still trying to wrap his head around the two newcomers when Liorah and Ferran reappeared. Thankfully. Well not that he cared really.
And it appeared that they knew Sahar and Acyn. Because of course. Of course they did.
‘Flipping eejits,’ Lorcan muttered under his breath. He couldn’t handle anymore idiots in his life…[Read more]
I’ll compose a message sometime and ask you you’re specific views.
😉 Will do!
Good, I can feel your anger, take a weapon, strike me down, and your journey to the–oh wait, I wasn’t supposed to say that out-loud. xD
*coughs* Yeah, WHOOPS. 😛 *cough cough*
There’s also a difference between writing a character who does something evil and actually practicing something evil. Magic (in the literal sense) is something we have to be extra careful about portraying, because I do think there’s a more narrow line between the two when it comes to magic than with some other things, but I don’t think it’s any…[Read more]
I think we’ll have to agree to disagree on this point. I don’t believe it’s anti-biblical to portray a fact of the world, be it physical or spiritual, so long as it’s done with biblical truth in mind and with care not to mislead readers.
There is a huge difference between portraying a fact (showing that it exists) and having a protago…[Read more]

Ooh… that makes sense… I hope you find things!
My grandma always tries to get my dad to say what he’d like for Christmas. Last year he said…[Read more]
So far Daddy and @rusted-knight are the hardest
LOL, same (except I don’t have a brother)!! We’ll try and get my dad something really cool for his birthday, and then a month or less before his birthday he unpacks it from an Amazon box. *facepalm* Poor guy, he got COVID for his birthday this year. 🙁
XD Sorry, then. 😛
Wow that’s so cool!
Lol, it’s a lotta peeps! My darling kleptomaniac stole the spotlight so much he’s now an MC with Eleazar from a WIP with my brother @rusted-knight, but Rosario the possible sociopath is still a (very important) SC.
not an uncommon experience for me LOL 😀
Lol that’d be the Internet PacMan that haunts the StoryEmb…[Read more]

Thank you so much for your feedback! It’s really helpful for me, especially since sci-fi is an unfamiliar genre for the hopeless fantasy nut. 😊
Marian and Jake (at least for now) were in a relationship in the past, but Jake had been hiding his illegal lifestyle from her and when she found out she…[Read more]
Quin stepped back a pace as Sahar came babbling toward him.
“Um, hi…hey. I’m Quin. Quin Miller. What’s—what are your names?”
his quick eyes glanced over the group, and paused at Acyn. He seemed to catch his thought, and his own eyes traveled down to the missing limb. his cheeks reddened and he looked back up at the group with one final,…[Read more]
“What door should we choose?” Alessio, the Bearer of Fire, said. Malvat could see the rage seething in his thoughts and decided that now was not the best time to appear callous. (Cathy: IKR?!?!? There would have been a Dragon vs. FireBoy duel right then and there. XD)
Ignoring the girl who crept up behind Alessio and began murmuring to him, Mal…[Read more]
Joelle, I loved reading this, it made my day. I’m glad we agree, we need to complain to each other about it sometime. xD
XD I’m glad it made you so happy! And yes, we need to rant sometime. *can already feel heat boiling in my stomach as I think about this subject*
Coffee… bleh. *disgusted face* No offense to any of you coffee-lovers, of course. 😉
*unsuspecting me peeks in starts reading*
*first post; critically analyzing but beginning to sink into the plot too much*

Thank you, Cathy! [[[[Hugs back]]]] I’ve missed you too!
Please pray for my Dad. He’s a godly man, but he is missing his sweetheart.
As a pastor, many people seek his prayerful counsel, but often people forget that he is a man grieving and struggling too.
I will yes. My family’s been praying for all of you with me since we got the news and so the Carmelites in Mom’s formation. It’s so hard losing someone who’s been a part of you so long… and it must be so difficult for your dad with so many people coming to him for support and being so used to his strength in prayer and in God that they neve…[Read more]
Nora gasped as Lagoron pulled her behind him. She mentally cursed herself as she realized both her sword and the zifer were over by the campfire. Out of the corner of her eye, Nora saw a speeding shape flying towards them.
“Behind you!” Nora yelped. She hated feeling defenseless, but here she was—defenseless.
Making a split second decis…[Read more]
