The problem with not having children is not knowing any of these popular culture snippets ;D
(I only found out about Frozen, Peppa Pig and the Octonauts when I visited my niece, hehe)
Haha we don't have kids, or really know any, and we don't generally follow pop culture... but Disney is awesome.  ;D

...although technically speaking we have six kids, all of whom naturally love watching Disney films with us. They just happen to be cats and dogs rather than humans, so to most people they don't count for some unfathomable reason.  ;)

I don't have kids, but am childish myself. Problem solved.

Welcome @Saurus!

I guess dinosaurs are popular over at the Raptori/Saurus nest? ;D

You mean little dinosaurs ;)


And I wrote that earlier, but I love "How to train your dragon" and "The pirates, adventures with scientists" (and the Wallace & Gromit stuff) ;D

Thank you @Saraband  ;D

Yes you could say we're quite fond of dinosaurs (of all shapes and sizes) :3

@ScarletBea Yes, little raptorsaurs  ;D

I really want to be a writer. I have a couple book ideas that came to me in a dream. I originally thought about turning it into a game so I went to a college for making games, but I failed. It was too complicated for me and its expensive as hell. So I decided to just write it. I’ve written stories before and people thought they were really good so they always told me I should be a writer. Me being an INTP, its hard for me to stay motivated on careers and things I want to do in life. I really want to change that so im starting to get really serious about writing. I found this website from thewritelife.com and decided to join. So here I am saying hi ;D

Hi, Varahx, and welcome! Lots of us here share your dream of writing, and there are some folks here who are making good on it. We have a monthly writing contest in which @xiagan gives us a story prompt, and we submit stories up to 1,500 words. It's fun and great practice for the "real" thing. I'm sure you can find things here to help and to give you some good conversation in the meantime. Welcome!

Welcome Varahx, this is a great site for writers to discuss ideas and try them aut and get good feedback. And for readers like me to have masses of good fantasy to choose from. Like your avatar  :D

Welcome Varahx  :)
Personalities like 'INTP' and 'goat or dragon' don't matter here. (Well some might disagree with the latter). We're just all about that passion we share: Fantasy and sci-fi, be it reading or writing, so enjoy yourself first and foremost :)

Welcome and no. The verification box is only there for the first couple of posts you make.

Hi.

And, well, since this is a Fantasy Books site, we'd assume people would have heard of Neverwhere ;D

The game of " " one had me stumped as well....luckily that pesky EU hasn't just down Google yet!

Thankfully I'd seen those lord of the rings games, so that was easy....

Mb this is some sort of evil plot by that overlord dude to influence my susceptible mind :o
