Hello there, I'm Orange! I like to think I'm a pretty easy person to talk to, so please pm me I'm so lonely feel free to pm me at any time. I'm currently working on the chaos contest and there's only one thing I can say about it: some people have plot holes, I have the Grand Canyon.

 

"all ignorance toboggans into know
and trudges up to ignorance again:
but winter’s not forever, even snow
melts; and if spring should spoil the game, what then?

all history’s a winter sport or three:
but were it five, i’d still insist that all
history is too small for even me;
for me and you, exceedingly too small.

Swoop (shrill collective myth) into thy grave
merely to toil the scale to shrillerness
per every madge and mabel dick and dave
–tomorrow is our permanent address

and there they’ll scarcely find us (if they do,
we’ll move away still further into now"

-ee Cummings

The Ballad of the Orchard

The goddess of an orchard has been alone with only trees for company for the last thousand years. Then one day, a little boy comes to her orchard. There is one true ending, you'll know when you find it because it says "true ending."


Forest of Past Voices
unpublished

Elliot hears news that his aunt is dying. He has to trek through a forest haunted by his own memories in order to see her before she passes. There are two paths through the forest and two true endings. They are both clearly marked as 'epilogue.' The maturity level is probably a bit of an exaggeration but there's some material that is definitely mature in one of the paths.


Fruit Tale 2
unpublished , coauthor

A sequel to Fruit Tale. You filthy humans are gonna get to read all about more fruity fun, such as chainsaws and mallets!

And say hi to my new coauthor, Orange! :D


Penthos
unpublished

Penthos, the Greek god of grief, begins destroying the world, forcing people to feel more grief than ever.


Rhom's Island
unpublished

Rhom is a newborn goddess on her own island. That's all I got for now, I guess. I'm so bad at summaries; I'll fix this when I finish and publish it.

A random cooking thread on 3/25/2017 12:16:43 PM

I've been cooking ever since I can remember. When I was a little kid and there was food in the house, which really wasn't that often, it would be my job to make something edible out of it. Then when I was around seven, I moved in with my grandma and she taught me how to cook like a civilized person. She is an incredible cook and I'm still pretty far below her, but I'm sure working to get there. 

I can and have cooked pretty much anything that any amateur chef could. The most complex thing I can make are macarons. Yeah, I know what you're thinking, "those are just cookies and cookies are the easiest thing to make save top ramen, how is that hard?" I have no comeback for that, other than to say they are the touchiest little things ever. One little mistake and the whole batch is ruined. The worst part about macarons is they take forever to make, years to perfect, incredible attention to detail, and they don't even taste that good. That's my opinion at least. So why do I make them if they suck so much? They're my grandma's favorite and I'm a sucker for sucking up to people.

The Animal Farm? on 3/23/2017 5:35:37 PM

This isn't a book, but "Shooting an Elephant," is a short story by George Orwell. It only takes a few minutes to read, but it has a lot of really interesting messages about how society works in there. It's a true story from George Orwell's time as a police officer in Burma. I do warn that the story is a bit graphic.

The grammar and spelling were almost impeccable. Syntax was also interesting enough to keep a reader interested. There were however, a few points where the choice the reader made wasn't really explained well. 

I enjoyed the choices given because it seemed that there were two choices and a compromise between the two for each situation. The choices seemed to cater to multiple kinds of high school and junior high students, which was nice. 

I tried to choose the choices most similar to what I actually did in high school. I ended up losing, despite thinking I played it quite well. Actually, I played the game a few times, but I still kept losing. I'm guessing that there is only one specific way to win, which really isn't true of real life. The biggest problem is, as stated in most of the comments on this game, the fact that there's nothing telling you why you failed. 

Overall, the grammar and syntax were great, choices were a little awkward at points, there were a wide range of choices, and there was nothing telling the reader why they failed. 3/8

Grammar and spelling weren't the best. Some sentences seemed to just stop while a new one started, leaving a really awkward single sentence that doesn't make sense. 

I actually just recently got first aid and CPR certified so I knew the right answers, yay! You definitely knew the correct protocol very well. The only problem is, most of these questions had common sense answers that everyone would know the answer to. I would suggest making it more difficult so that the reader can perhaps learn something or review something they wouldn't automatically think of anyway. 

I chose some wrong answers on purpose just to see the response, and I'm glad I did. Some of the comments to incorrect answers were hilarious, especially the one about chopping up the man with frost bite. 

Overall, grammar and spelling were mediocre, first aid steps were all correct in full detail, it was a bit too easy, and it was surprisingly funny. 4/8
