Oh you do realise that on Isla Nubla are the tribe of racoons from Pom Poko, meaning a certain quote becomes the truth.

YAY ;D

Somehow I've got the feeling I'm going to regret saying this but... please don't make Scarlet go near them...

Talked to Charlie. Said he's busy with the end of school. Might be able to pop in here and there, but beginning of June's rough for him.

Said you're doing a fine job with his rotating hips.

Back on topic, we are now racing toward the light house, which I'm assuming is Isla Nuba. Once we win we shall have a nice feast picnic on the island and start the real thread like Jmack's.

All of a sudden @ScarletBea got me so laughing. Imitation is the best form of flattery, yes?  8)

Suddenly it's now a trend ;D

Anyway, it seems brain only works/gets ideas at 4-5am... not very handy if that happens every single day *sigh*

Someone with a better brain than I should start a thread about how suddenly takes away from the action scene. It's something a lot of writers don't know about I think. Obviously this is an RPG, so it doesn't matter all that much. But it would be an interesting writers discussion.

I always just thought it was a superfluous word.

Suddenly, the car exploded.

Without it, it's more immediate, and the action has more impact. Is there more to it than that?

No, but you would be surprised how many authors still use it.

Wait, wait , wait! @Nighteyes, did the kraken die?  :o

Quote from: Doctor Chill
It hit the bulb and knocked the kraken's lights out. It screamed in agony as Doc unloaded some bullets at its slimy hide, but nothing else came of the attack.
I thought that Chilli meant that it was still alive.  :-\

No worries. It seems Waka already went on killing it with the (space) gnomes.  ;D

Have we set things up nicely enough on Chill's thread?  Dinosaurs, shape shifting racoons, Nords, gnomes.  It's gonna take a few posts to sort that one out!
