Re: Book-hoarders Anonymous - display your wares Ooh, can I play? I'm new, hello!

This is my reading nook/bar and it makes me happier than most things. :)

Re: Book-hoarders Anonymous - display your wares Thank you for the kind words and the welcome! I love the longship too, I made it when I decided to have a wild flirtation with model building which lasted exactly one third of the time it took to build my first model. I swear nothing in this world has ever made me swear as much as building that bloody longship did. ;D

Hello! Hullo, I'm Wol!

I like fantasy, cross-stitching nerd shit, fixing up old furniture, playing videogames and homebrewing beer.  :)

I am British-ish, but having lived in America for a very long time I have become a sort of Bill Bryson type hybrid where everything I type doesn't have enough vowels in it and I use lots of slang that sounds wholly inappropriate with my accent. The Americans have been very kind to put up with me, but I suspect it's mostly because they don't realize that a Northern English accent isn't actually posh.

I met my (American) husband on a roleplaying server in a fantasy videogame (Everquest, for the curious - I was an Elf and he was a Halfling) back in 1999 where we were very good friends for about 3 years of pretending we didn't fancy one another. Then one evening we got a bit squiffy and admitted we did fancy one another rather a lot, actually, and so we met and spent a week together and that was basically enough for us to decide to get married. I moved to Portland, OR 3 months later to be with him. And now we have been married for 12 years. Whew!

Re: Hello! Thanks, guys! I'm happy to be here and excited to join in. :)

With an unhealthy fascination with goats.

What constitutes "unhealthy", exactly? Like, if my 2016 calendar was literally of Goats in Trees? Because, uh...  :-\

Re: Hello!
As long as you bear in mind that Dragons are far better than Goats.;D


In particular, if you write a long post make sure to either do it in Word and save or do frequent copies, as you can lose it by accident. Usually because unless you are permanently logged in there is a time expiry, but sometimes it seems random.

DON'T TELL ME... oh wait, that's good advice.  ;D

I love it here already!

Re: Anyone here participating in the r/fantasy Bingo? I was very late to the party this year - currently cramming in all of the Hobb RotE books before she comes to town for a signing in May, but once that's done I will definitely be on the bingo train this year. I already have a huge backlog of books I have been wanting to read so hoping some of them will fit. I can't wait! :D

Re: Hello fantasy fans! Oh gosh, it's all good. Personally I really enjoy reading the monthly writing contest entries, planning to dip my toe in there myself at some point. :)

Re: Hello! Well you know, I don't require Northernness in my pals, it's just a bonus. I promise I won't reject you for not having a flat cap or black lung or whatever.  ;D

Pleased to meet you!

Re: robin hobb I finished Assassin's Fate last night. Not really spoilers but I super don't want to ruin anything for anyone so...

Spoiler for Hiden:
This is me at work today.

Hobb has properly fucked me up. My husband found me in my book nook weeping last night, about 50 pages from the end, and he was so distressed at how inconsolable I was that he started shoving chocolate at me to try to make it stop.

When I finished the book he took me to bed to cuddle me and have me watch Parks & Rec until I stopped hiccupping. He said he hadn't seen me cry like that since my grandmother died. I have been walking around in an absolute daze today. I haven't felt this desolate from a book since I finished His Dark Materials many, many years ago. Yegods.
