lkiriakos, The Reader
Pouring in the hours on Cabata's Quest. Will stop when I no longer enjoy it or when I can no longer make it better. Hopefully, will take me a long time. :-)

There ain’t enough nuts around here for two squirrels. Somebody has to go.

Who/what is that?!

Awesome write-up! Really enjoyed reading it.
I’m used to the “humans are better than aliens because… we have emotions… we care about each other… we are selfless/cooperate better” tropes (which always came off as sappy to me). This one (“humans beat aliens because we are reckless; and, so, innovate faster”) is a new one for me; and, I gotta say, I like it.
Also, alternate world history is just cool as fuck regardless.

Great read. Just sent over my notes. Would make an excellent CYS if you ever wanted to convert it. ;-)

Oh.. I see... you think I copied the idea/saw his review... No. My post (also) was before Henshaw's review. But, I think it's cool that we saw the same thing. Wish I could describe it better. Something along the lines of "very few words/sentences between the actions" maybe?

Huh? Henshaw's review was written after mine... But, for me, I mean the spareness of the descriptions. You see the bad guy... next sentence he is cut in half. Boom. Not too many sentences and yet a lot is going on. That's where I got the feel from...

Fun story. Just realized (after writing my review) that her style is very Hemingway. Crisp and to the point (in a really good way) - especially the action sequences. Your advice to her was on point. Basically, it should be longer/more full and also more well-thought-out in certain places (but not wordier... the amount of wordiness is perfect).

I said he was my favorite comedian, but I never accused him of positivity or niceness to noobs...

My own discord server? That's actually a great idea. Yeah, I'll probably do it.
BTW, 3iguy/triclops probably deserves a medal or something. Finally read about Social Justice Warriors/White Knights... etc. So, fine. I'll shut the fuck up about the tone.

Cowbell's name was changed (and restored) previously. The rest though is basically accurate. As a result, might as well include that he voted for himself to be banned.
Those of thicker skin than I (everybody?) might enjoy the aptly named venue. I had a few good laughs on there, made a friend or two on the side, and got great notes on my story (also, on the side).
It’s basically (for better or worse) the same general “tone” as the forum. Except, you are likely to get banned and have your name changed the first time you speak. The people on there are, at least, very funny.
