I will now start Robin Hobb's Assassin's Apprentice. I'm quite excited about this one; I've never read Hobb before, and the praise is universal  :)

Funnily enough, I've just ordered that trilogy (for the same reasons as you), which I'm picking up tomorrow :D (and in the process getting a free £10 voucher because I've finished my stamp card yay)

But since I finished my book yesterday (Hulick's Among thieves, which was really fab!), and I can't be a day without reading, I've just started Pratchett's Carpe jugulum, which I saved from a friend's charity shop run, hehe

You're welcome, but I'm not a writer - "just" a reader, hehe
And I like reading the competition stories :)

Carter, I really liked your story.
As a reader, it kept me wanting more
I thought that the fact of jumping back and forth between scenes and times was quite good, it was one of the elements that captured my attention, made me think, understand more as the story progressed. However, I'm not sure that would work in a longer piece, at least not if the "sections" are as short as in this story, it would feel too 'jumpy'.

You do loads of work with the Worldbuilders charity: do you think what you learn from them, and those experiences, shape what you write?

Sorry guys!
Sorry for 'reality altering' stuff, but I was getting annoyed with the fanfic that showed up out of nowhere :-\ so I sort of brought the story back to where it was a half dozen posts earlier, or something.
Please don't be mad, and let's all go back to the beach and off the island - or further into the island. Wherever. Just not in the castle.
That's what we'd agreed here earlier too.

(but ok. feel free to say that Scarlet was the one breathing the nasty fumes and get back to where it was, if you want...)

._.   .-.

It's my, 'you have to be kidding me' face.

I recommend drawing flaming donkeys out of your books. Sice Cole refuses to cooperate.

 ;D for both

Question for Yuan: what are all the posts with just the signs?
Is it code? Anything I missed?

Today it seems to be a question of "Drowing in the rain", and the storm hasn't even reached the north yet!
I guess it will be a "snuggling inside while the rain is outside" day

*still slightly confused*
I think I'll rejoin once the story gets back into line of amulets and searches and quests...
(I can't seem to do battles, no ideas at all)

The arturian movie I remember, that is now probably incredibly dated but I loved at the time, is Excalibur, which I loved and must have watched when I was 13 or something ;D

After studying Le Mort d'Artur, I remember having to sit through Excalibur. It's good, if you like symbolism crammed down your throat. ;) *Shudders* So much green light.

You watched it about 20 years too late - as I said, it hasn't aged well, hehehe

I'm quite a big fan of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Mists of Avalon. Read it first when I was 16 and it shaped all my understanding of Arthur's legend.

I watched the movie when I was in my teens, and enjoyed it, but never had the curiosity to see if the books were any better. Maybe I'll give them a go this time. My memory is ridiculous, so it will probably even feel like a new story to me  :)

Movie? I didn't know they had made a movie of that book - checked, and one of the review titles is "If you liked the book, you'll hate the movie", so that must have been a reason why it passed me by, hehe
