    Tales from the Reaper Re-Chapter

    Well, the premise involved some pink-haired college student (not literally pink, but you get the idea) arguing with basically a Trump voter (though this is set in pre-Trump era around 2014 or so). And not looking where he was going when he walked right into an intersection, thinking about some...

    Tales from the Reaper Re-Chapter

    My story is a series of short vignettes, kind of like a Dragonlance anthology, each story is more or less self-contained, yet adds to the mythos. I like "Sick Girl" and "Well of Souls" chapters, but then I get to "Isekai". I don't like Isekai at all. It's deconstruction of the isekai genre...

    I can predict whether your story will become popular or not

    There are parts of Tales from the Reaper I gues "anthology" is the wrong word. It's kinda like a series of self-contained stories or vignettes. Some are kinda lightweight cute & sad, others veer toward the horror genre. Of these short stories, Sick GIrl is the most adorable, while Well of Souls...

    I don't get it

    I have pretty terrible ability to take criticism either. Here's some of my reviews for a game that I made. https://rpgmaker.net/games/1071/reviews/ You'll note that I argued pretty harshly with the game reviewers. It took a long time before I improved, but the advice was helpful. That is not...

    I can predict whether your story will become popular or not

    Maybe, except God Protagonist is a major spoiler (basically Book 2 ending), and as such, I cannot tag it. Since the first premise is so generic, it goes into the dustbin of "seen it before" and the story gets ditched before it gets to this point. 🤷‍♀️ I've got another one called Tales from...

    I can predict whether your story will become popular or not

    Hahahaha, I already know. It won't. But here you go. The story is actually two stories, an actual story and an ostensible one. The ostensible story is that a beggar girl named Ambrosia gets sent on quest from God with a crossdressing ex-prince named Nevras, a half-elf named Aqorm, a...

    Watching paint dry

    Challenge set! Ambrosia finishes making repairs to her house, nailing any loose boards in place. However, her pad could use a fresh coat of paint. Years of living in the same house have turned the nice white house into the color of ripe wheat. As much as she would like to leave it be, Ambrosia...

    Can time stop users NOT impart kinetic energy?

    It's because time (cause and effect) is simply suspended until later, without change in speed. For example, suppose time stops for 10 minutes (600 seconds). I am whacking away at some guy I hate for that time... but I am hitting at normal speed. Say I give him a good whack every 3-5 seconds...

    Free Photos You Can Use

    Pictures from a trip from Virginia to Washington State then cycling back to Virginia via Niagara. Arts by me. I have other arts, but some have been already used by me (tough luck guys), and some are original work, but not original photos (I spliced foregrounds and backgrounds, I edited...

    I require knowledge of animals

    Worms... sort of regenerate. However, the idea that cutting a worm in half will result in two worms is a myth. Worms do end-only regeneration, meaning they regrow only from the side that has brain or similar. A vertical cut with kill a worm, and a horizontal cut results in one severed corpse...

    Can time stop users NOT impart kinetic energy?

    This theory of time defines motion of molecules, and thus stopping time equals moving at superspeed. There's also the even more disturbing theory of time in that you slow the motion of molecules down to a crawl, possibly creating the Heat Death of the Universe. Yay, Absolute Zero! When I...

    How Would You Review Your Own Story?

    It's called Oracle of Tao. I will say that I am extremely dubious about your ability to get through the book though. And not just because it's a self-contained trilogy. Off-the-top of my head, I rant about: Medicine is evil, only magic/faith healing/herbalism are proper ways to heal people. I...

    At what age did you learned cooking?

    Cooking can be learned at any age, but if you don't live in a restaurant, your parents will probably cook for you most of your childhood. I learned to cook a few dishes around 16 or 17, I think. Did a bit more cooking in college. I've never been a great cook, preferring to make quick meals like...

    New Statistics Page for Authors

    I mentioned it here. https://forum.scribblehub.com/threads/not-counting-my-own-visits.6069/#post-148616 I'm not sure if the statistics page also counts this, but it should either discount it or at least clarify somehow what is your own activity (visiting to edit or proofread), and what is...

    The most dignified gesture to pay respect to higher authority?

    The problem here is that you mentioned a dignified gesture. This doesn't seem like a problem until you understand that the most sincere gestures are those that cause the person performing them to lose dignity, that is to humiliate themselves. Sitting on the floor with head bent over, bowing...
