Hello to all!
« on: April 19, 2017, 09:57:53 PM »
My name is Allan Batchelder, and I've been lurking for a few years, but only just gotten 'round to signing up. I'm an avid reader and writer of fantasy, but I enjoy other genres as well, particularly horror.

Welcome ! Have fun
I'm Saloninus, by the way. And I tell lies, from time to time. Which goes to prove the old rule; never entirely trust a man who talks about himself in the third person.

Hey, we like lurkers-who-become-members ;D

Post at will, even in old threads - we like that!

Hi :)
I'm an angel. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even, when I feel like it, rip the souls from little girls, and from now till kingdom come, the only thing you can count on, in your existence, is never understanding why.

Hi and welcome to the Forum  ;D
I imagine arguments being swallowed back, wine spit in glasses and gurgling up bottles. I imagine my ring sliding off my finger, Bobby's lips hot on mine for the first time again, and then unknown to me.

Hi Allan, welcome. Where are you? What do you do? Can I drive? Are we there yet?  ;D

Where am I from? I've often wondered, but I tell most people Seattle. What can I do? Well, that's the question, isn't it? Can you drive? Please do. As long as I can drink.
