Oh Australia you really don't get irony do you.

This is like double or triple irony. I feel like if I keep rereading I'll find more and more layers. Like an onion, tears and all

The country that started as a prison colony deports an Aboriginal man (who's people they displaced in founding the country) to another country who's language he doesn't speak... because of a criminal conviction

From the author of Divergent and Insurgent comes...

The YA dystopian future smash hit where the future is... Annoying

I tried rewriting my agent pitch yesterday... Which is funny because it's taking me months and months to revise chapter 1 at this speed it will take me 70-105 months (9 years?) to revise the whole book and even being submitting

I've been very slowly watching the first season of The Expanse. It's solid and definitely well-made, but there's nothing about it that grips me very much. I feel that I could just leave it and not really mind.

I felt that way too. Oddly it took almost a full season to grab me. Season 2 and onward I have been straight up hooked. I don't know why it took awhile to really hook me, but it is definitely worth watching.

Yeah Ive heard that from a lot of people that it started out slow for them. You people are aliens to me. I found it riveting from the very beginning to the point where I felt it was the best show on television at the beginning of this last season. Then they did something that pissed me off and I completely stopped watching.

Randomly, with as little logic and as much meandering as possible

Good job everybody! You kept me up late last night reading way past my bedtime.

@Slaykomimi I think it's because you all are a talented bunch of writers (and our fickle Muse decided to show herself slowly but surely) :)

@Rostum I'm loving that first one!


I tried SkyrimVR for the first time this weekend.

I've watched some VR documentaries and played a couple of VR games and it's sort of like being in a 360 degree movie theater.  But this... HOLY SHIT ITS REAL.  It really feels COMPLETELY THREE DIMENSIONAL.  It was CRAZY.

The thing is you move and turn with hand controls, so your eyes are telling you that you're moving and your body is telling you that you're not.  I got pretty nauseous, but I'm a skyrim addict so I kept playing until I couldn't take it anymore (about the point where you get out of the cave after Helgen).  I was nauseous for an hour after.  I went to the gym and tried to do this hamstring stretch in the sauna where you put one leg up on the highest seat and bend and I straight up fell over.  I was so dizzy.


I saw a joke on instagram from @gavintesvi that made me think of you, @tebakutis

Where will you find the numbers 8 and 10?

Spoiler for Hiden:
By the Nine!

What kind of Elves work at Bethesda?

Spoiler for Hiden:

How does the Dovakiin remember all of his shouts?

Spoiler for Hiden:
He puts them on a Thu'um drive

Backlash?  You mean the people whining about Henry Cavill?

Greetings! I am also new here, my name is Tom Wilson.
I am fan of George Martin, Howard Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, Stanislaw Lem, Andrzej Sapkowski and other fantasy writers.

I read a lot, and try to write a collection of my own stories. One day I was very impressed after reading Solaris by S.Lem. This is my favorite novel of all time. Besides of books, I also like gaming. My favorite games are The Witcher 2,3, TES series: Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, SOMA etc.

Unfortunately, my PC needs currently some improvements (I want change my GPU on MSI GTX 1060 6Gb, because it is quite old and also improve my RAM) and I can't play games. Just can surf the Internet with my Acer CB3-131 chromebook. But I hope soon I will be able to return to the world of video games.

Hope I will find good friends here  ;) Thanks!

@TWilson I thought you were talking about Soleri by Michael Jonston when I first read this!

I recently got a new laptop, loving the newfound video gaming capability, tho I only use it to play skyrim.... I have an i7-7700HQ 2.81 GHz a GTX 1060 and 16 GB RAM

Sorry I haven't been around to respond-- live swallowed me up like a black hole for the last 2 weeks!

@ScarletBea  I can't imagine what a brush with cancer must be like, but it's beautiful that you can have such an intense compassion for people who are facing a similar struggle.

@JMack you and I are getting old-- you'll kick that body back into gear before you know it.  but I know what it feels like to have your body fail you, and I'm feel for you man.   but get better soon so you can rescue us from the mega-megalodon!!!!
