    Into The Valley

    This chapter stands out for me. It reminds me so much of the fantasy stories I grew up reading in Jr. High and High School. The scene with the stone giants is a classic, and resonated well. Fantastic all around.

      If  authors wrote strictly from experience, there would be no sci fi or adult fantasy.  That or all the asylums would be full to capacity.

  3. Book Report:

    Soulbound Series by Hailey Turner. GLBT Urban-Fantasy Romance.

    I read the first two books in the series, and the third was just released yesterday. It's a fantastic Urban Fantasy, Gay Romance series. I highly recommend it. Cover Art:

      Thanks, Dr.P. I'll give it a look later.

      Just finished book three and am already planning on bugging her (nicely of course) for the next one.

      Love this series. :)

      Thanks for the recommendation. I'll check them out.

  4. You made someone's day turn a 180. That is something to celebrate.
  5. It's because they wear black. Everyone is leery of the Goth Chicks.
  6. But there is something to be said about Hemothracene too. He's brought order to the land, has created stability among the populace of Nabrook, and only wants what is best for his followers. All he asks for in return is a little faith and devotion. Searchers are the ultimate worshipers. They have chosen to serve as the sword of their god. They bring peace and order where they go. A priest's duty is to encourage followers and converts to the religion. A divine warrior's purpose to enforce the will of the god. (Have I mentioned, I've role-played a lot of Clerics, Specialty Priests, and (Un)Holy Warriors over the years in my D&D games?)
  7. Stravor is my favorite, followed by Keter. I like those Divine Warriors types. Handsome and Brave.
  8. The heart is because I felt your poem is well written, and invoked a strong emotion in me. So it's showing how I feel about the poem itself. As for content, I would be a tear drop like the others, because it is sad. Getting ones emotions out is a good thing. You're right that lately there has been a lot of sadness and heartache. Hugs my brother.
  9. I'm going to attempt this. Depending on which comment count we're using: By Content Count in the black bar: 7 as of right now. A Criminal Cyborg. By Comments on Stories: 9 as of right now. A Diabolic Devil. I love both.
  10. molly, I am so sorry to hear about the loss you and your family is going through. My prayers for you and your family.
  11. That's a full time job by itself, to get it out on less than a year.
  12. I keep looking at this story, through the eyes of one that has played a lot of Dungeons and Dragons, and loves fantasy. From gaming experience, you don't want to mess with intelligent weapons. Especially ones that are soulbound to the owner. I can easily see me playing in this story as a quest, and that is fantastic.

    First Steps

    A great chapter, tim. I like how you showed a tenderness of Stravor towards Shade in this chapter, which is yet showing a different side to our Searcher. He even uses Shade's name when it's just the two of them. Excellent job.
  14. Both of these prompts are really good. Thanks for posting them!
  15. Happy Birthday Mike!

    A little sad, but I found it well written, and thought provoking. Excellent job Wayne.

    New mysteries are a foot, and a very well imagined sex scene. Nice work, Wayne.

    In my opinion, I think you did a great job with these poems. I don't know what caused the first poem to come about, but I can feel the rebuke in it. You say in a few lines, something that if the offender were to read, hopefully they would get its meaning, and correct their actions. The second one is filled with love, and you can see it, feel it, and taste it. Well done, my Brother.
  20. Thanks for pointing that out. That's a very nice one. @Mikiesboy did you make it, like you others?
  21. One thing I love about Beta Reading tim's stories, is when I reread the chapters when they go live, I pick up on little tidbits I missed the first time around. There is a lot of world development, and character development in these first two chapters, that you have to reread the chapter to find all the little nuances. It's fantastic.

    Making Ready

    Fantastic Chapter, tim. I loved the interaction between Stravor and Dayson, and you getting the sense of a there friendship. Keter is a favorite of mine. Shade is a wise investment, for two travelers on a long journey.

  24. They're both really good. Thank you, @comicfan for doing these prompts every week. I have some on my list back from 2012 that you've posted, and I'm trying to get to.
