@ashlyvye Besides Brandon Sanderson, other fantasy and classics, mostly- Harry Potter, The Inheritance Cycle, Ashtown Burials by ND Wilson, Lord of the Rings, Narnia, The Prydain Chronicles, etc
I’ve also read a lot of older books for school, Like A Tale of Two Cities, Beowulf, Jane Eyre, etc.
😀 Other than of course Sanderson, what about…[Read more]
@ashlyvye XD no. Huh. Somehow my message dissapeared when I tried to post it
Yes! I have done that before. I know what you mean aout picking up parts of things from books, though. If its not something I would normally do at all, I wouldn’t pick it up. Wheras if its something I kind of already have, then I’ll get part of it from the book.
So I…[Read more]
@introvert_girl 😀 *wheeeeeee* Stan is super, super thrilled
Okay, so, can Stan fly) Nope. Sadly, because his wings are small and stubby. He can jump very well though.
How big is he) He’s actually gotten smaller over time (sorry, Stan, I know that’s not what you want to hear.) I picture him about the size of a large armchair.
What color is he)…[Read more]
@dekreel I don’t have to time to give it a full beta-read, but I scanned a few pages of it.
I’ve never watched those tv episodes you mentioned so I have no dea if it was contrived… honestly, for children’s stories, it seemed well done, though. The story moves along nicely and it seems… I can’t think of another word than polished, which is to…[Read more]
@ashlyvye XD Yep. Stan’s full name is Giarstanornarak, although it’s actually this odd dragon-culture title where the ‘rna’ is an honorific and his normal name is Giarstanorak. Sort of like ‘Brightlord’. XD I’m definitely not a crazy person
Yes, it’s Dalinar himself having the visions in the highstorms… actually, I don’t think I remember…[Read more]
@christianna-hellwig 😀 Anytime awesome swords are involved, the epic factor goes up.
I play the guitar, and I’m going to learn the keyboard soon, because we just got one. (I’m definitely not a master on the guitar, though.) I usually make my music by picking out guitar notes or trying some chords, and I don’t make the parts for the bass clef. To…[Read more]
I woke up one morning
To a hideous roaring
I nearly screamed
At the puffing and snorting
I leapt out of bed
My heart burning ablaze
Expecting to find someone dead
Or to chase
But it was only the dragon Giarstanorak, also known as Stan
And I screamed “I won’t stand for that, although I’m a fan
Of yours Stan this is going…[Read more]
@warrenluther04 😀 Both of those series are pretty epic. Inheritance, though, nails the magic system… it’s very scientific and has limits rather than just saying words
XD Saphira is the best. I really like her character
@christiana-hellwig 😀 Actually, that doesn’t sound silly, it sounds awesome 😀
What a thrilling idea! I’ve never thought about somethig like that before. A flaming sword is a very nice setpiece to have around, and the biblical tie-in is very intriguing. It sounds.. well, my signature word is EPIC.
XD Right. Composing is tough. It’s rewarding,…[Read more]
@ashlyvye Storms! cool. Way of Kings is an amazing book. It starts out confusing, actually, because its a lot to get into. And then… well, then it happens. The worldbuilding is simply epic! Shardblades, Shardplate, highstorms, chasmfiends…
XD XD Haha
@ashlyvy 😀 Welcome to the bestistest place on the internet! I’m not sure how I missed you until now.
You like Brandon Sanderson? 😀 😀 😀 EPIC
The Stormlight Archive is my favorite fantasy series, and I like the Reckoners a lot too.
And you like NF! NF is probably my favorite Christian musician because he has so much passion and drive in him. I…[Read more]
@christiana-hellwig 😀 Welcome to the bestistest place on the internet!
You’re writing a fantasy novel? Awesome 😀 what is it about?
I’m a fantasy writer, as well, its my favorite genre.
I have a friend who plays violin really well! I like to write music but find it really hard- composing an opera sounds epic, and tough.
Hmm… advice or word…[Read more]
@dekreel 😀 😀 😀 😀
😀 😀 😀 😀
That is AWESOME
Stan loves it 😛 😛 (So do I, of course)
XD It’s really funny
“Was that your chair?” XD I was laughing so hard at that
I’m so glad there’s going to be more, too 😀 I can’t wait
I already really like Jenna as a character
@catwing XD XD The Firebird. A crashed plane. That is awesome.
I’m here, working for a bit on a story right now called Swiggy Wants to Destroy Everything. Stan is delighted with it, but it’s giving me a little trouble…
