    The Upsidedown.... (For those Stranger Things nerds like me).

    I love Russian fairytales! Actually, I'm a fairytale fan in general. :) There's also the one Russian tale of the girl who had 2 wicked stepsisters and a wicked stepmother (think Cinderella). Can't recall the name of the story but one winter day their fire runs out. The stepmother sent the beautiful stepdaughter out to get fire, hoping that the girl would die. Instead, the girl hiked up this huge moutain and ended up in the land of the gods in this beautiful forest. She rolls up on the gods having a bonfire and they give her a piece of that fire to take home. Well, the flame is magical and burns the the girl's house down with her wicked family in it. I don't think there was a hot prince involved though. The end.

    What's with the new new Thanks and Reputation count thing? It was perfect as it was. I logged in and saw I had more than 200 thanks. I was startled and excited, then I saw the change. So, that bubble burst. Still, why the change?
     
  4. Yeah I got 84 or something and now I'm confused...

    Sounds awesome, Dragon! Would it be more fitting to say "best of luck" or "break a leg"? XD

    When in doubt, say Best of luck in breaking a leg.

    At the cottage once again, and wifi is actually working! It's currently raining in biblical proportions, I have Guy Gavriel Kay's Children of Earth and Sky waiting to be read, a half finished puzzle, a lazy dog sleeping at my feet, and entire day with nothing to do. Well, if this rain continues I may have to Google how to build an arc, but otherwise it's catching up on the forums, reading, finishing my puzzle and napping for me today.

    Life is good.

    If I recall correctly, first you need several tons of gopherwood (whatever that is), and a place to build that's more than 300 cubits long by 80 cubits wide, and 40 cubits tall... XD

    Hi Velka! Wow, sorry it's taken so long for me to respond! After wrapping up the camp season I immediately went tent camping with a bunch of friends--my cell service was good enough in the wilderness to get Spotify and Tumblr, but apparently not MS. It was fun but I'm glad it's over--I REALLY beat myself up as a sports counselor, and hiking and sleeping on the ground weren't doing my injuries any favors. A full summer of fencing, rugby, soccer, football, and hiking will do that to you.


    I have in fact been writing, just not anything new! I think I'm finally done taking notes/obsessively worldbuilding for Southerner, so now it's time to start writing again. I also got a sudden motivation to return to Frostbite, that vampire project I was working on--for Camp NaNo, I think it was.

    So how have you been? Writing anything good?
     
  13. I should probably get a profile picture soon. But I don't like my face. so I guess I'll draw a dragon or something.

    I use my COA from my SCA days.

    (Unofficial Coat of arms: 2 fleur de lis rising over sun on mountains.
    My daughters going further then I.
    Which couldn't be official, since my coat would be established before my daughters were born.)

    When every word you write today sucks but you keep telling yourself that it's really not that bad...

    Found a typo in my copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone today that's apparently really rare and makes the book more valuable. "1 wand" is stated twice in the list of Harry's school supplies on page 53. Wondering if this is legit... and if my copy is of the right edition for said value. XD

    Lol I found a typo inside the game Fallout 4 on my Pip Boy. It was a pretty big one, too. Good to see that sort of thing slip every once in a while to remind us that no writing is perfect. Right? :)

    It was the first 500 copies in the UK that were supposed to be the only ones with the typo. Those First editions are reputed to be work up to £20K...
    Is your Harry Potter Book worth £20k - Bitter Wallet
    Now Ireth... How much do you LOVE that book?
