Yup I met Bea here in Belgium and that was basically it lol.

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve. Or some such :p

Clocks fall back in Fall @JMack . The only reason that silly name for Autumn makes senses.

Or... Yknow... Cuz the leaves fall  :P

What about the one where the author dies but it's finished by someone else?

I'm trying Dauntless. It's a bit a monster hunter-like mmo that got released recently. No idea if it is any good yet since I just started. :p

As for my skyrim playthrough, I'm grinding through the thieves guild quests rn. I want to finish these and the assassin guild before moving on to the expansions.

I do the thieves guild almost every time I play! What expansions are you doing? Are you on PC? Have you installed any quest mods? I've done Moonpaths to Elsweyr, various pieces of the snow elf stuff in Qaxe's Questorium, Bruma, Clockwork City, Grey Cowl of Nocturnal, and a few others.
Going vanilla right now for blank experience. Excepting two mods from their cash shop that were being given away. (materials and nyx hound).
I have all the xpacs but so far I'm only doing mainland. After thieves guild and dark brotherhood I will do dawnguard and dragonborn.
Will definitely do moonpaths in my next playthrough but still looking for mods otherwise. Feel free to recommend your favourites :p

Bruma was meh.  I think the crime settings glitched because everyone in the province tries to murder me everytime I go there and they're constantly sending bounty hunters and I don't even remember what I did. It's not letting me do the speechcraft/guild things either to chill it out, and all NPCs seem to be affected, not just guards.

Clockwork city won a bunch of awards.  It was cool. Qaxe's has a ton of cool stuff I keep randomly discovering.  Rebuilding Helgen is supposed to be really awesome too.
Alrighty, will add them to my list ^^

Poor spiders  :'(
They are really friendly and as long as they are smart enough to not get in my sink/shower/... they will live long.
I mean, they get the other creepy crawlies for me  :P

My current character is a half elf cleric who has lawful good at first. Originally on a pilgrimage to the holy land.

She was kidnapped by the villain after she drank too much. Then befriended a piece of bread while believing it was a duck.
When the bread was destroyed during the rescue, she cried.
Now she is a vampire ensorcelled by the baddies and is slowly killing everyone else...

Usually I just DM though :p

I'm a big fan of world kitchen.  Not just Asian food but also food from across Europe.
Souvlaki (greek) is one of my favourite dishes to make cuz it's so dang easy yet very tasty.


Atm I'm trying out food in fiction.
I made the Gotcha! Pork Roast from Food Wars and will make Sonic the Hedgehog's Chilidogs this weekend.

And my grapes are ready so it's time for some proper homemade grape juice...

So when's the purple prose writing contest?  :P @ScarletBea

Paolini is known to use a lot of purple prose in his books.

As in Christopher Paolini? The Inheritance Cycle guy? I find him very readable - equal parts descriptive and plot-driven. I really rate him, particularly for younger readers.

I would say Tolkein - particularly in the Lord of the Rings - is pretty purple. But to the OP ... purple prose can be a little overly impenetrable, where you're sort of frowning at the page trying to unpick it. But people likely have different definitions of it. Some writers say any sort of long sentence is purplism.

Exactly that Paolini  :P
I'm not an eragon hater. In fact I have all the books on my shelves. However, he does have a lot of purple prose.

Flowery language can have its place but it's all about picking the right moments. He grows a lot as an author as well.

About falling asleep:
Quote
"He closed his eyes and sank into the warm dusk that separates consciousness and sleep, where reality bends and sways to the wind of thought, and where creativity blossoms in its freedom from boundaries and all things possible."
