Honestly, there's not much I need or want to say about me. Long time lurker, currently writing my first storygame, which will be accessible in sneak prev. One day.

current improvement objectives:

- general English

- pace in description and sentences length

- motivation 


Well, I guess that's all; feel free to pm me if you have a question or for any other trivial matter.

quotes that inspire me :

- "I know, when time comes, to leave the lion's hide to take one of fox " - Napoleon Bonaparte
- "Under the unending avalanche of trivial information, no one knows where to find interesting ones" - Bernard Werber (french writer)

"J’allais sous le ciel, Muse ! et j’étais ton féal ;
Oh ! là ! là ! que d’amours splendides j’ai rêvées !"


L'empereur se tourna vers Dieu ; l'homme de gloire
Trembla ; Napoléon comprit qu'il expiait
Quelque chose peut-être, et, livide, inquiet,
Devant ses légions sur la neige semées :
« Est-ce le châtiment, dit-il. Dieu des armées ? »
Alors il s'entendit appeler par son nom
Et quelqu'un qui parlait dans l'ombre lui dit : Non.

this is not a game. just a place to save some stories. shoo, mods!

ENGLISH, MOTHERFUCKER! DO YOU SPEAK IT? There is not much to think about when you fix the broken English.

"You can't go there! We're not allowed!" "What? You're afraid?" he chuckled, his malicious smile betraying his enjoyment and excitement. "b-but..." she muttered, her eyes fixed on her shoes "they say it's cursed." The trip was short and uneventful. They soon entered the dark house, blindly and noisily searching for a curtain to open. A formidable figure of human shaped horror, violence, and madness, appeared against the opposite wall; its fearful eyes contrasting with the sight of its mouth devouring a headless body. They screamed and ran for their lives. The Quinta del Sordo was at peace once again.

I ain't. A comment is a "leaf" until someone answer to it, making it the node of a thread. Your comment being "get your own thread", I was merely pointing that you were, in fact, creating a thread by complaining. Out of boredom, I also criticized the mismatch between your choice and the "lateral thinking" that is called "thinking outside the box".

I think she senses their heartbeat, like a snake or Daredevil. Or maybe she detects their lifeforce. Who knows. None survived, anyway.

you complain about me commenting by commenting? Then, my answer was the beginning of the thread you created with it. interesting. And that's funny that you complain about me answering to "think outside the room" just to repeat it immediately after. It's not "thinking outside the box" it's basically "bashing your head against it until something cracks".

Don't know you enough to know if that was deserved or not. And I was struck by a sudden lack of confidence in my ability to write a correct sentence in English. I guess I'm tired. And I was not speaking about a "global" chaos
