[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:08:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hi KK
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:08:06 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hi KK
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:08:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> Hello KK!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:08:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> It is getting hungry
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:08:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Marc, we'd love to see a fanfic of yours. 🙂
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:08:30 PM EDT] <KK> How has everyone's week been?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:08:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Good, KK. Temperature is high 50s and it's sunny and the window is open.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:08:58 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> My week has been great! I spent a large part of it babysitting my grandkitty so my son could have his first vacation in a few years.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:09:01 PM EDT] <Bee> I've bought a new battery for my e-trike, and I
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:09:07 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Fanfic can be a lot of fun onless you get stuck like I did for awhile. You get some great feedback from forum members and other fanfic wriers.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:09:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> Fighting off a flu-type thing. all the symptoms except the fever.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:09:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> It's been good! I got to see my family out of state and I literally could not put The Adept down
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:09:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hello all
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:09:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> How was yours?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:09:23 PM EDT] <KK> Is it installed, Bee?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:09:34 PM EDT] <Bee> m waiting to find out if it works. It's at the bike shop now.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:09:58 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hope it works, Bee
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:09:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi KK
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:10:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Glad a professional is fixing it, Bee
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:10:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I know you've missed having your bike
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:10:05 PM EDT] <KK> Tee-hee, Marc!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:10:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hi KK
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:10:24 PM EDT] <KK> Hi, Shiral.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:10:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Top O' the afternoon to ye!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:10:48 PM EDT] <Bee> I've been using my old pedal-powered trike. I rode it to church for the first time in several weeks.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:11:05 PM EDT] * CambersGhost [discord] <shiral_> snaps fingers and puts out tea and fresh Irish soda bread and shortbread on the chatroom tea table
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:11:07 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> That sounds like good exercise for you
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:11:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> The Fanfic board has been hungry for some time and would welcome some new deposits
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:11:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Riding the trike, that is, not Shiral snapping her fingers to provide the snacks. 😉
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:11:42 PM EDT] <Bee> I'm just hoping it works. Otherwise I'll have to negociate with the seller.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:11:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Well, you don't know how my fingers work, do you?? 😉
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:12:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I've started a story, but starting one and finishing one are two entirely different things, as my Google Drive sadly knows given how many unfinished stories are languishing there.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:12:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hey Shiral
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:12:24 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Ooooh, Irish soda bread!!!! *om nom nom*
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:12:34 PM EDT] * Bee sets out fresh manchet bread with honey, butter and strawberry jam.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:12:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Have to do a quick chore. BRB
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:12:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> That's about how I react to sodabread too, Nezz
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:12:55 PM EDT] <bynw> hi KK
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:13:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Considering my ... limited frame of reference, would I have a lot of competition, either in lore or the community, if I wrote a story about how Charissa and her boytoy met? 🤔
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:13:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> I had a blind friend who thought snapping your fingers was done by waving your hand so fast your fingers hitting the palm of your hand was what made the noise
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:13:10 PM EDT] * Bee also passes out flagons of mead.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:13:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I don't know manchet bread, but I'd probably om nom nom it as well
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:13:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> GIve it a try, Marc
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:13:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Or perhaps how the scottish templars founded their tower in Strathmourne?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:13:54 PM EDT] <Bee> I believe it's a very soft bread.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:14:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Don't I know it! I won't reveaal how long it took me, but this personal manuscript I have devoted myself to, it
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:14:24 PM EDT] <KK> Marc, that sounds like a worthy speculation. Let's see it!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:14:27 PM EDT] <bynw> Marc, do both!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:14:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> A weekend at Templemor Tower would be just fine with me
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:14:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I just got back a short while ago from a late lunch. The little Chinese restaurant up the road had an incident last week where someone lost control of their car somehow and ended up driving straight through the restaurant's front window. Fortunately no one was hurt, but that entire wall had to be boarded up. I was talking about it with the little old Chinese lady behind the count <clipped messag
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:14:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> er when I picked up my food, and she joked, "I guess they thought we needed a drive-thru window!"
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:14:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Don't I know it! I won't reveaal how long it took me, but this personal manuscript I have devoted myself to, it. is something. I. have almost given up on many times
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:15:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> First thing I really finished outside of short stories too.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:15:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Glad nobody was hurt, bub wow, that would have been a shock for them
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:15:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Glad nobody was hurt, but wow, that would have been a shock for them
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:15:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Thy wish is my command! 🫡
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:16:07 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hi hi, sorry, stepped afk and remembered I'd meant to put Carys' water fountain in the dishwasher, so I did that. (The motor has to be washed by hand because electrical cord, but the rest of it can go in the dishwasher.)
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:16:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> She said the crash was so loud, she initially thought the entire ceiling was caving in, but it was just that one wall to the side of the entrance.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:16:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Oh dang. Glad it's something to laugh about instead of cry.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:16:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> agreed
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:16:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Expensive enough to fix, though
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:16:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I'm back
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:17:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah, though hopefully they have insurance that's covering that.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:17:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I expect that's not the restaurant owner's problem, unless that driver wasn't carrying car insurance.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:17:25 PM EDT] <Bee> I was struggling with my latest Caeriesse poem. What are some words about breaking waves and shores that rhyme with "wail" or "cry"
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:17:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> assail?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:17:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> travail?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:17:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Gale?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:17:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> defy
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:18:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> deny
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:18:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> There might be a pot or two simmering on my story stove....maybe
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:18:26 PM EDT] <Bee> shale and wail? Could the shores of Caeriesse be made of shale as well as sand?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:18:28 PM EDT] <KK> You need a dictionary of rhyme, Bee. There's probably at least one online.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:18:33 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> That's good. We need a new story or twenty.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:18:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I am beta-reading more than writing these days.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:18:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Sometimes they need to marinate
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:19:02 PM EDT] <bynw> i guess marc is gonna need a fanfic board
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:19:14 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> What a shame, bynw. 😉
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:19:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> That would be helpful if he wants to post a fanfic, yeah....
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:19:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> (That is me being a smart mouth.)
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:19:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Fortunately, it seems to be easily provided
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:19:40 PM EDT] <bynw> yes it is. i think i will go do that
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:19:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> It's super easy if you have the board permissions to do it.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:20:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I'll try and figure out some outlines and get back to you all. 🙂
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:20:14 PM EDT] <Bee> You're also a wise woman, DR.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:20:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> You can make one for me as well, if you'd like
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:20:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Dmitri has joined me and says hello
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:20:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Yes, Nezz will need one too.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:20:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Marc, I usually write in Word, Google Docs, or something similar, then copy/paste into the forum edit window, which works like any other post.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:20:52 PM EDT] * Bee scritches Dmitri
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:20:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Bynw, are you on it or should I? No need for us both to do the same thing.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:21:08 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Cool, new boards and new stories. I can hardly wait
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:21:14 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Good idea. Personally, I trust nothing like I do OpenOffice, but I accept the necessity of those fancier word processors.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:21:16 PM EDT] * CambersGhost [discord] <azdesertrose> offers Dmitri a nice long spine petting.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:21:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> He's purring up a storm
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:21:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> OpenOffice is very good
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:21:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Every time I make a new chapter in Google Drive, I copypaste a new draft in OpenOffice.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:21:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Pets for Dmitri
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:21:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Any formatting like italics can be added while in the edit window too, but if you have a lot of them, I find it's faster to go ahead and add the code into my original manuscript and then copy/paste it in, rather than trying to find the individual words or sentences that need to be formatted after pasting them.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:22:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> "Manuscript" has such a nice ring to it.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:22:25 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> 10/10 word
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:22:30 PM EDT] <bynw> i already did DR
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:22:31 PM EDT] <Bee> not familiar with OpenOffice
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:22:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> OpenOffice is perfectly fine for writing purposes. It's essentially a no-frills version of Word.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:22:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> It's free, Bee.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:22:51 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I just stick with Word
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:22:58 PM EDT] <Bee> thanks. I may justtry it.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:23:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> LibreOffice is based on OpenOffice
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:23:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Free is the important word as MS Word i certainly not free. I mostly use Google Docs
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:24:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> If my office is paying for it, I use the official Microsoft products, since that's what they use. If it has to come out of my pockets, OpenOffice or LibreOffice is perfectly fine, since you can't beat that free price.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:24:14 PM EDT] <Bee> I use wordpad. not sure what, if any, I'm paying.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:24:14 PM EDT] <bynw> both LibreOffice/OpenOffice are good. Mostly compatible with Microsoft Office (Word and the rest) but there are some places it can't duplicate what can be done in Word
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:24:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> I have a MS Office subscription that I mainly use for Civil Air Patrol stuff.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:24:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> LibreOffice is a perfectly good program.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:24:44 PM EDT] <bynw> WordPad is going away in future versions of Windows unfortunately. it was a nice little program
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:25:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> At how many drafts is usually a good stopping point? I think I'm realizing that I can just polish this and whatever fanfic I do write indefinitely w/o some voice in my head or head over my shoulder saying "that'll do, Marc."
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:25:07 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Though I like Google Docs because I'm one of those weirdos who enjoys having my beta readers read along as I'm still writing, and being able to make marginal comments so I can change things as needed on the fly, or use the chat option for real time chat if needed.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:25:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> That is fun
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:25:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> That's very cool, Evie. Very hitek.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:25:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Marc, Write as many drafts as you need to feel satisfied with the end product. No two people write exactly the same way
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:25:50 PM EDT] <bynw> Google Docs is compatible with Word more so than Open/LibreOffice
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:26:00 PM EDT] <Bee> I have Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Google and Windows 10.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:26:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> That is true, can confirm
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:26:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Really, that depends on what works for you as a writer. I don't tend to work in terms of first-second-third drafts or whatever. I tend to write and revise as I go, then go back through once everything is written and do a final reread and polish.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:26:22 PM EDT] <bynw> another free word processing program is AbiWord (not compatible with Word however)
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:26:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Having reformaatted an OpenOffice doc from the ground up in GoogleDrive.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:26:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> There are some great beta readers on the forum
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:27:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> But the entire time, I'm writing a scene or two, going back and doing line edits, writing more, editing more, getting feedback, writing and editing more, lather, rinse, repeat. It's a process that won't work for everyone, but it's what works best for me.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:27:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <capngramma> Must go. the headache is coming back. Have a good week, everyone.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:27:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> cya capn
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:27:48 PM EDT] <KK> Headache, be Gone!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:27:48 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Bye Capn' hope you feel better
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:27:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Feel better Capn
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:27:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I imagine your doc like a nanomachine swarm constantly adapting to the environment. Like I said, very hitek
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:27:58 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Sometimes my characters will throw in some unexpected plot twist, and then I go back and rewrite earlier bits as needed, though often that's not really needed aside from a line here and there.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:27:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Get well soon!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:28:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Where is a Healer when you need one!?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:28:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> sorry about the headache Capn Gramma. Feel better soon.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:28:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Nezz, you have a fanfic board now.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:28:32 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Evie is the Borg. Deryni will be assimilated. Resistance is futile. 😉
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:28:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:28:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> lloolololol
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:28:48 PM EDT] <Bee> I need to write another post for my favorite Marvel Comics character.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:29:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Which one is that, Bee?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:29:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Which one is your favorite Bee?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:29:18 PM EDT] <bynw> we have 3 fanfic boards without any posts. this must change!!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:29:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Which ones are these?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:30:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Are they for Marc, Nezz, and the person who said he had a story a while back but then never got around to adding it?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:30:10 PM EDT] <Bee> ..I'm drawing a blank on the name. Comicbookresources.com
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:30:13 PM EDT] <bynw> yeah
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:30:25 PM EDT] <bynw> and hasn't been signed in either
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:30:34 PM EDT] <bynw> probably will never see any fanfic from them
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:30:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I don't know if you have read any of the fanfic Marc but there are a lot of really good stories in there.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:31:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I think he originally planned to move an existing story from an old archive, but it could be he discovered the archive wasn't there anymore.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:31:10 PM EDT] <Bee> My fave character is Madelyne Pryor. They're finally giving her some justice.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:31:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I'm afraid I won't be prepared until I've read the main trilogy of deryni, at least. I might begin reading the second novel soon, but first I need to finish REH's Hour of The Dragon and Red Sands. I have too much free time lately, you may have guessed.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:31:48 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Oooh, justice like how? Are they going to retcon her so that she *didn't* go evil?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:31:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah, we've got some great fanfic, though if you haven't finished at least the Kelson-era books, you might find a few spoilers.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:32:19 PM EDT] <Bee> They've sort of reformed her.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:32:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> @KK How are you doing, Progress on corraling the paper monster?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:32:32 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Mostly spending it trying to find a future, but I haven't been this productive of a writer or with my health since laast summer.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:32:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Bee: Good. They really did screw her over something fierce.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:33:30 PM EDT] <Bee> good to know there's another Marvel fan here.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:33:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> @Marc_du_Temple My guess is that once you've read Deryni Checkmate, you will want to read High Deryni pretty quickly after that to find out what happens next. Deryni Rising works better as a stand-alone than those other two, though they can be read individually.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:34:04 PM EDT] <Bee> Yes
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:34:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Well played, KK. Well played. 🙂
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:37:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I can see that with The Adept, too, that by then she and DTH had mastered the sequel hook. I gotta know what the heck is the problem of these Lynx guys, if that little girl will be okay, and if Dr. Ogilvy is gonna end Adam's bachelorhood (I am basically to my single friends what that supportive lady (in the noble sense) friend is to Adam)
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:37:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Fanfic gives us a chance to learn more about other characters that we liked but who kind of dropped out.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:37:52 PM EDT] <KK> Well, I've tried to make all the books essentially stand-alone, but also leave some loose ends, so readers will want to see what happens next. I try to avoid trye cliff-hangers, though.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:38:00 PM EDT] <KK> true
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:38:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Each ending has been satisfying, but intriguing.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:39:22 PM EDT] <Bee> Deryni Checkmate was the first ending that left me hanging.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:39:34 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah, you don't have to worry about "Oh no, Alaric just fell off the cliff! Is he going to land on a ledge safely, or will there be a funeral in Book 3? Welp, I guess I'll find out if I can get my hands on the next book...." 😄
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:40:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Please. Let us not throw Alaric off a cliff.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:40:32 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Don't toast Duncan like a marshmallow, either
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:40:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> At least not a the very end of a bood
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:40:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> At least not a the very end of a book
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:41:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Don't do it then, either. 😉
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:41:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hypothetically. I would not dream of throwing your darling off a cliff, Laurna. Unless it served the plot, but I don't dare kill off KK's darling either. 😉
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:41:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> At least not at the very end of a book
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:41:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Agreed, I haven't seen any cliffhangers yet, KK. Just endings that leave me wanting more. I would have been desperate to know how the templars got Robert The Bruce the ultimate victory after Temple & Stone if I didn't read that whole series wildly out of order.😅
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:41:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I wanted Alaric to live to be 80, a respected senior statesman surrounded bychildern and grandchilren and maybe even some great grands
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:41:33 PM EDT] <Bee> I really hope we'llget to know Bronwyn better. And Jerusha. Female Healers are uncommon.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:41:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I need my Darling to keep me going
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:42:07 PM EDT] <chris> i'm sure Alaric has in some fanfics
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:42:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> KK sticks all of my darlings into cassocks and vows them to celibacy.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:42:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I should take a hint, huh? 😉
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:42:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> https://tenor.com/view/happy-tears-gif-25605273 embed: https://tenor.com/view/happy-tears-gif-25605273
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:42:48 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Deeply frustrating....
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:43:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Which makes it really hard to replicate them
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:43:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> No, you don't throw people off cliffs; you just blow up castles with most of the royal family inside, @Evie.delacourt! (Since revanne isn't here, I have to say it, haha!)
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:43:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Meanwhile the only eligible lady I have seen is Charissa... I'm good. 😆
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:43:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Well, she DID manage a little something with Duncan...
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:43:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Oops, better zip up, or Marc won't be surprised
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:43:41 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> True. But spoilers. 😄
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:43:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> https://tenor.com/view/spoilers-doctorwho-doctor-who-riversong-gif-19450921
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:44:54 PM EDT] <Bee> That face looks familiar, m him.rc, but I can't name
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:45:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Oh, and the demon cow from Stone. I'm good. However, you know the saying "Women want him. Men want to be him?" I definitely feel that vibe with a lot of the male heroes in these books.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:46:02 PM EDT] <chris> Marc should eventually read Ghosts of the Past but after he's read a few more Deryni books
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:46:09 PM EDT] <KK> Good saying, and very true of many of my characters.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:46:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Several ladies at court get rushes on Duncan, who is a priest for heavens sake.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:46:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Vows of poverty and chastity never looked so b#dass. Unless you read Lives of The Saints or Fox's Book of Martyrs.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:47:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Marc, one of the fun things you'll discover is that while KK ties up many of her loose ends, she leaves just enough dangling that you will easily find some good launching pads for fanfic ideas if you want to tie up those loose ends yourself.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:47:17 PM EDT] <Bee> Marc, whom do you want that guy to play? He's too sable for Alaric and too old for Kelson.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:47:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Several ladies at court get crushes on Duncan, who is a priest for heavens sake. I think they feel "what a waste"
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:47:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Hi Everyone! It took me a while to catch up on the chatting so far.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:47:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Oh, I already see the seeds of unwritten stories... mwahaha.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:47:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Hi, J!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:47:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hey J
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:47:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:48:00 PM EDT] <chris> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:48:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:48:04 PM EDT] <Bee> HI Jerusha
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:48:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> What guy?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:48:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> *I* have a crush on Duncan, for goodness sake, and at this stage of my life I'm now old enough to be his mother, so maybe I should just buy him some milk and a packet of cookies and call it a day. 😄
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:48:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Or good cookies
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:48:45 PM EDT] <Bee> the guy in the picture you posted. familiar face, but can't think of the name.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:48:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Sorry, I meant to type chocolate
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:49:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> ah, yes, Michael Scot, no relation. 🥁
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:49:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Steve Carrel is the actor
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:49:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I don't think it was meant as a casting suggestion, Bee
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:50:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Steve Carell is the actor
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:50:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:52:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> OK, I'm confused. Which one is he and why is he here?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:52:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I can't think of anyone, sorry. I just abuse GIFs to express myself sometimes.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:52:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I think it was meant as a facial expression thing?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:53:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I thought you'd posted the gif as a response to Evie saying that she should take a hint
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:53:25 PM EDT] <chris> yes sometimes GIFs are used to express emotions. better than words
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:53:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> As opposed to clueless Michael Scott? 😄
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:53:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I didn't know that the IRC folks could see the gifs.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:53:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> No, the message right before that, bout her faves being celibate. Happy that they exist, sorry it would never work.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:54:10 PM EDT] <Bee> sometimes I see them, sometimes not
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:54:33 PM EDT] <chris> it's posted as an image when it comes from Discord. We just have to click the link or perhaps on the web chat you might be able to see it without clicking on the link
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:55:02 PM EDT] <chris> that's why i changed the bridge bot from Eris to CambersGhost ... so we could get images
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:55:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Can y'all see the emojis?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:55:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I've been experimenting with an AI image website to create inspiration pics for my current characters so I can be consistent in describing what they look like. Here is my 15th Century Haldane protag, for instance.

[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:55:41 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> VERY Haldane
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:55:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Slightly more English Ben Barnes.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:55:48 PM EDT] <chris> what you just posted Evie shows up as a link

[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:56:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Or Kelson VIII
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:56:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> So long as he is not Henry VIII
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:56:56 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> agreed
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:57:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> He's definitely not based on Henry VIII. 😄
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:57:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Who wouldn't fall for him?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:57:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Thank Goodness, he's not based on Henry VIII
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:58:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> We don't need Araxie Boylyn
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:58:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> You know Henry VIII was very handsome as a young man, before he overindulged a bit
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:58:12 PM EDT] <chris> Henry VIII was a handsome man in his youth. he got fat later on
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:58:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> evie, show DFK the princesses especial the one that I think looks like Eirian
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:58:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Oh, the youngest one?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:58:34 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hang on
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:58:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> yes
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:58:36 PM EDT] <Bee> When I open a link in IRC it blocks out the chat. Opening pics in a new tab works for me.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:58:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> He was actually very impressive, aside from all the wife killer and ... general killing and corruption.

[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:59:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> very pretty
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:59:32 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> She definitely could be Eirian
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:59:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> yup
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:59:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I thought it was the other little girl who we thought looked like Eirian. There was another, wasn't there?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [7:59:56 PM EDT] <KK> Who is she really?!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:00:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> True. He had some positive qualities, they just tend to be very overshadowed by his actions later in his reign
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:00:07 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> A hunter, a musician, and an amateur theologian walk into the courtyard. The guard says, "Good evening, Henry VIII." The king says "What's for dinner?"

[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:00:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> no this image, the other is older
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:00:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> She is a composite picture made by an AI website when I used a keyword phrase like "17 year old medieval princess, black hair, gray eyes, dressed in dark clothing."
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:01:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> 17 and not yet married?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:01:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I don't recall the exact phrase, but it was something along those lines, and then the webpage generates a couple of images that you can download.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:01:24 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> heh, he doesn't look a day over 14... 😄
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:01:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> heh, she doesn't look a day over 14... 😄
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:01:50 PM EDT] <KK> Ooooh, I didn't know an online AI website could do that!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:02:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> This is several centuries later, when the age of first marriage was slightly higher since they had worked out that very early marriage = higher mortality in childbirth. But it's not *that* much higher. She would be considered marriageable.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:02:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> She just hasn't been married off yet.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:02:48 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Most definately
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:02:49 PM EDT] <chris> AI can write a whole book
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:02:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> with the rise of AI we may never again know wht is true and what is not. Kinda scary
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:03:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Not a *good* book, but it can write a book
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:03:08 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Will she have a happy endiing?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:03:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> AI can't write a book I would read. No soul = no flavor.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:03:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah, there are several site that will do that. Most will just give you a few free pictures unless you subscribe, though the one I'm using hasn't cut me off yet, and I'm not sure why.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:03:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Perhaps prince charming is a Morgan descendant?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:03:47 PM EDT] <chris> you have to read what it wrote and try rephrasing your statements several times before you get it to come out right. so it has a ways to go yet
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:03:51 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah, there are several sites that will do that. Most will just give you a few free pictures unless you subscribe, though the one I'm using hasn't cut me off yet, and I'm not sure why.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:04:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I am on your side Jeusha
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:04:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Actually she may end up with a Furstan. That would be a shock
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:04:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Egad!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:05:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Unfortunately some people are already using AI to write books--primarily nonfiction ones, I think--and selling them on Amazon, and they are usually spotted fairly quickly because they're crap, but not before they have made a few sales.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:05:05 PM EDT] <Bee> I want a cat face meme next Zoom chat for my face
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:05:27 PM EDT] <Bee> or a bee face
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:05:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Lion, tiger or cheetah, Bee?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:05:42 PM EDT] <chris> Bee, you just have to find the right filter for it
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:05:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Bee, you can do that easily enough by yourself.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:05:48 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Eirian Haldane was betrothed to King Liam of Torenth by the end of KKB.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:05:53 PM EDT] <chris> of course your camera has to support it
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:06:00 PM EDT] <Bee> i could if I knew how.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:06:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Right now you can still tell, you just have to look pretty closely sometimes.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:06:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> No way AI could do what has been done in this community. You need a mind of your own to make intelligent writing decisions, make connections between characters feel tangible and to make the mystical feel real.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:06:24 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I didn't say that because of spoiling Marc's reading.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:06:42 PM EDT] <Bee> m ycomputer does not like my cell-hone camera.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:06:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Oh crap. I forgot we have a newbie! My bad!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:06:58 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> But the pictures are neat. I can see how they might help with visualization. I'm guilty of doing basically the same thing with HeroForge.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:07:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> My fanfic 14th C Haldanes have a Furstan mother/grandmother.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:07:26 PM EDT] <chris> HeroForge is nice.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:07:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> The new face sculptor is insanely advanced, isn't it?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:08:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Is KK still here. She's very quiet tonight
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:08:11 PM EDT] <chris> i haven't checked that out yet Marc
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:08:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> If HeroForge is the site I'm thinking of (is that one that makes RPG game figures?), I looked into that at one point to see if little Duncan and Alaric figures could be done.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:08:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> After doing the gernerational charts. nearly every single noble family has furstan liniage
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:08:27 PM EDT] <chris> yes it is that site Evie
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:08:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I completely remolded my protagonists' faces to reflect their upbringings after that update
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:08:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Furstans really got around
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:09:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> You can make an Alaric for sure! I did just that after I got your advice on this forum regarding his face. 😁
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:09:36 PM EDT] <chris> i have a character in a non Deryni game that has the last name of Furstan
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:09:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Still gotta finish thhe model of him [redacted] Ian
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:09:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Marc, at one point a few years ago, I wanted a Duncan action figure. Just one. I wanted to make him a little wardrobe based on different scenes from the books. But then Duncan needed his cousin Alaric. And of course they needed Kelson. Before I was done, I had half the blooming court in action figure form. What was I thinking? 😂

[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:10:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Stupid connection hiccups. I'm back
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:10:34 PM EDT] <Bee> I wonder if Alaric and Duncan could be descended from Jerusha. If she had children, they'd likely inherit at least one healer gene.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:10:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> The orange is from when I thought he was the guy on the cover lol
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:10:48 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I had a small scare the other day. I was looking for the Kelson linage charts on the forum and they were not visible for me to see. So I thought the forum had lost them and I was trying to figure out how to remake them. when I realized I just was not signed into the forum. and After I did sign in they were there. I was so relieved.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:11:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Any sign of her?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:11:50 PM EDT] <Bee> That is NOT how I imagine Alaric to look like.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:11:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> I thought Alaric and Duncan descended from Rhys and Tieg
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:11:58 PM EDT] <KK> I'm still here, reading and occasionally responding.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:12:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Katherine, are you here? 😄 (She likes to lurk in her own chat sometimes. 😂 )
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:12:28 PM EDT] <chris> Alaric and Duncan do come from Rhys through Tieg I believe
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:12:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> We have vital signs!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:12:43 PM EDT] <KK> I'm thinking about AI.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:12:48 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Definitly from Rhysel, I also added a liniage from Tieg in my fan fic.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:12:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Yayy
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:12:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Only what I was thinking when I made over half of the cast of the templar books. In my headcanon and models, Brian de Jay is shorter than Arnault and Torquil. Nothing wrong with being short, but it would feed his inferiority complex.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:13:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Yayy for KK
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:13:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Oh. How may I improve it?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:13:39 PM EDT] <Bee> not from Rhysel. She was not a healer, and she married a human.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:14:10 PM EDT] <chris> Marc, have you ever purchased a mini from HeroForge or do you just go through the rendering?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:14:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Yes BEE, Morgan and Duncan come from Rhysel, and Robert Ansellie on there human sides of the family.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:14:19 PM EDT] <Bee> but she could have been a Carrier.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:14:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hang on, KK, I can look at my story notes and tell you what website I used. One caution I will say about it is that it tends to sometimes have a bad case of Same Face Syndrome, so if you need (for instance), two middle aged kings, they might end up looking too much alike, which isn't awful if they are meant to be brothers or cousins, but if they're not meant to be related, it's h <clipped messag
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:14:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> ard to get it to generate a face that's very different unless you change more words like "bald" or "gray haired"
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:14:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Rendering only. I am poor and afraid of going off the deep end with purchases like that.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:15:12 PM EDT] <chris> HeroForge is pricey but I've done 1 or 2 from them.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:15:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah, I made my own action figure using a Ken doll and some fabric scraps because I was broke. Though once I added the rest of the collection...and a few hundred dollars later.... 😅
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:15:38 PM EDT] <chris> but i've rendered others and just took screenshots
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:16:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Obviously I need someone to sit me down sometimes and remind me of what the word "moderation" means.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:16:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL and then Evie's collection made me add some of my own mini deryni dolls to my house

[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:16:37 PM EDT] * CambersGhost [discord] <shiral_> just had a silly vision of Alaric singing "I'm just Ken..."
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:16:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Oh dear -- Alaric all in pink!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:17:03 PM EDT] <Bee> My current theory is that the Healer gene is arecessive on the X chromosome. A male healer needs just one copy, but a female healer needs one from each parent. Evaine must have been a carrier.t.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:17:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Alaric wouldn't be caught in PINK
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:17:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> OH NO! SHIRAL< NO!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:17:34 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> It's OK, Alaric. You are Kenough. 😄
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:17:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> And he's great at doing stuff!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:17:51 PM EDT] <Bee> Bronwym would have been pretty in pink.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:17:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Look how much trouble they had getting Alaric to wear anyhting but black
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:18:25 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I think Bronwyn had a pink gown in Deryni Checkmate
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:19:08 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Oe at least had it lined up to wear for the nuptual festivities
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:19:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> @Marc_du_Temple have you read Deryni Checkmate yet?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:19:32 PM EDT] <KK> Sorry, I just lookedd at the site Evie recommended, and nearly got sucked in.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:19:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> **CRY**
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:19:41 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Bookmark it for later, KK
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:20:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> That's a pretty seductive rabbit hole to jump into, yes
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:20:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Making the Templar characters as heroforge models was and is a fun challenge for me because according to their Rule they would all dress very similarly, so making historically likely and varied looks based on their personalities and histories. One day I may add more models of Deryni, Adept and Templar stories, with the gallery master's approval. 😉
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:20:36 PM EDT] <KK> I did. I know how to do that but I still have to think about it now with the updated version of Windows.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:20:41 PM EDT] <chris> go for it
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:20:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Making the Templar characters as heroforge models was and is a fun challenge for me because according to their Rule they would all dress very similarly, so making historically likely and varied looks based on their personalities and histories was tricky.

[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:20:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Here's a hint for you...if you generate a picture (or pictures, since you get two for each keyword phrase), click on them and you will get an option to download them and select a format. I selected JPG format. If you download from the picture rather than hitting the download button at the top of the page, the site doesn't seem to count that against your free tokens for some reas <clipped messag
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:21:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> on. At least it hasn't told me I have used mine up yet.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:21:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> It might be next on my list, but I feel like I have a responsibility to finish this Conan novel and Red Sands, which is like a Dungeons and Dragons adventure, first. I'm almost done with them. Would recommend if you just want some adventure.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:21:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Marc, there is a galley on the forum so you can start your own thread and post your character creations images there.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:22:14 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> If you are a gamer, there is a Deryni Adventure Game sourcebook
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:22:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I read Conan in my college years. but that was a long time ago
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:22:25 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I always wished Bronwyn could have lived (though I understand why not for the story line). There seemed to be so much potential for wrecking havoc in the Haldane court with another Deryni duchess
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:22:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> It's also a handy resource for fanfic writers even if you aren't a gamer
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:22:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> He's very inspiring while I'm still unemployed. The sense of freedom and danger is shared.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:23:16 PM EDT] <chris> and i think it might be on sale with DriveThrurpg.com right now too since GreyGhost Games is having a bundle sale
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:23:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Cool! I gotta get back into it. I guess my attention has wandered.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:24:13 PM EDT] <KK> Glad to hear tat Grey Ghost is still in businesss.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:24:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I have YouTube on in the background but wasn't watching it. Just looked up and there is some guy in a medieval outfit standing in a medieval kitchen and doing a food video. 😄
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:24:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I'm intrigued
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:24:38 PM EDT] <chris> Ann has been through a lot these past few years
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:24:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Anne has not come onto the chat in while
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:25:10 PM EDT] <KK> I should probably drop her an email and check in.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:25:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> that would be nice
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:25:55 PM EDT] <Bee> About Bronwyn...I imagine someone warning Kevin, "Leave the amulet be! Take the lady!"
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:26:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> How different things might have been
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:26:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Just had some company walk in and my battery is getting low so I will say goodnight . Hope everyone has a good week. Anne comes to the Zoom chats but i think this one is too late for her unless the insomni monster is bothering her.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:26:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Good night, DFK
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:27:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Different Anne
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:27:06 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Nighters, DFK
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:27:07 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I think that is the most vulnerable we ever see Alaric. At the end of Deryni Checkmate
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:27:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Always save the girl, as a matter of policy. 😆
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:27:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Good night.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:27:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Just one bad blow after another, for Alaric
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:27:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <derynifank> Bye all
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:27:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Let us know how the writing goes, DFK. have a good week
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:27:57 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> But Kelson gives him a pep talk when he needs one most
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:28:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I can see Loris spitting nails if that wedding had been able to take place
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:28:27 PM EDT] <Bee> or if only Bethane had known Bronwyn and Kevin were betrothed. She assumed a Deryni woman could only have a lowly suitor
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:28:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Ann Dubose (? not sure on last name) is the Ann who edited the RPG book, IIRC. As opposed to AnnieUK, who used to be on the forum but hasn't been for a while, and Anne/Revanne, who is here regularly for Zoom chats.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:28:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I love Kelson's reacation and maternal insticts to taking care of Alaric at the end of that book
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:28:51 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Ann Dupuis
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:28:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Dupuis, I think
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:28:56 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Gotcha. They all seem cool.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:29:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Loris can just get indigestion or worse from his nails.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:29:08 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Ah, OK. I remembered Du-something
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:29:11 PM EDT] <chris> Ann was thinking about coming to the March Zoom but was busy
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:29:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Loris was a pill
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:29:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Loris was the pill no one wanted to take
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:29:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Cyanide pill

[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:29:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> "You keep making me ill."
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:30:03 PM EDT] <chris> i chatted with her on Facebook
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:30:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> You will get to meet Loris very soon, Marc. Oh the happy joy. 😉
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:30:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> NOT
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:30:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> (P!nk song)
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:30:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Happy as a pig on a roasting spit
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:30:36 PM EDT] <KK> NOT, indeed!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:30:51 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:31:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> The best thing I can say about Loris is, he's not De Nore. But you won't meet that dude until much later.

[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:31:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:31:33 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Heh. You should be. 😄
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:31:55 PM EDT] <Bee> Hubert was worse. At least Loris believed in his prejudices. Hubert believed in his own advantage.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:32:14 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Once you get to meet some of KK's villains, you'll wonder how they came out of the mind of such a sweet lady. 😉
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:32:18 PM EDT] <chris> so true Bee
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:32:29 PM EDT] <KK> LOL.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:32:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Agreed, Bee
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:32:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Everybody has a dark side, clearly
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:32:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Oh, topic shift. Sarah (ambush's sister, shows up for chat sometimes) lost her grandpa Wednesday night.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:33:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> 😦
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:33:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> My condolences. That can't be easy.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:33:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Sorry to hear that
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:33:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> She asked me to let y'all know.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:33:15 PM EDT] <Bee> ;(
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:33:15 PM EDT] <chris> rough time for her. first her mom and now her grandpa
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:33:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Oh dear. Sorry to hear that
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:33:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Thanks for letting us know.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:33:36 PM EDT] <KK> So sad.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:33:51 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hopefully she can make it to a chat soon so we can give her our virtual hugs in person, so to speak
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:33:58 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Yeah, definitely. The extended family has converged upon the farm.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:34:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> So she's up to her eyebrows in relatives which is good because company but not so good because people in her space.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:35:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Very sorry to hear the news
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:38:20 PM EDT] <KK> brb
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:38:22 PM EDT] * chris went to send Sarah a message on FB messanger and now it wants me to create a PIN ... worthless crap. i don't want to use a PIN to use it. I would rather not use it at all
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:38:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Ugh
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:38:56 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I don't recall ever having to set up a PIN to use Messenger
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:39:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> FB messenger is being a pain about that
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:39:14 PM EDT] <chris> i think its new
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:39:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Seems they want you to use your PIN to see message history
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:39:38 PM EDT] <Bee> What's a PIN?
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:39:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Except I don't have one
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:39:50 PM EDT] <chris> but you have to choose an option it wont let you skip it
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:40:01 PM EDT] <chris> Personal Identification Number
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:40:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Personal Identification Number. Like you would have on your debit card, if you have one.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:40:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I just close it down
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:40:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> The message, that is
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:40:36 PM EDT] <Bee> Most of my Facebook is Words With Friends.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:41:24 PM EDT] <chris> i can still use it on my ipad without a PIN
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:41:38 PM EDT] <chris> but on my phone it wants me to create a PIN
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:42:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I used to play Words WIth Friends with a friend's 80-something year old mother who liked to kick my highly literate butt daily and wipe the floor with it. I have NO IDEA how she knew so many obscure words! 😄
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:42:44 PM EDT] <Bee> I Sometimes do family on FB. One of my nieces has been battling cancer for a while now.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:43:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Sorry to hear it. I hope she beats it.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:44:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I always make sure to copy the words my grandma uses to destroy me in scrabble into my notes app. For writing purposes
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:44:22 PM EDT] <Bee> Last I read, she was waiting for her bone marrow transplant to remember what it was supposed to do.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:44:54 PM EDT] <Bee> but optimistic
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:45:36 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Good to hear she is optimistic. that is the most important part of treatment
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:46:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Mind over matter! Always!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:46:04 PM EDT] <KK> I'm back, but need to sign off. I have a very insistent grey tabby girl who is actively campaigning for some supper. And I also need to feed me, too, though not the same as Daphne.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:46:30 PM EDT] <Bee> I HOPE NOT THE SAME AS dAPHNE!
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:46:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Have a good week, KK. Hope a few story ideas start bubbling for you....
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:46:35 PM EDT] <chris> oh you must go and feed the furry overlady
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:46:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I was going to say, not the same food I hope
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:46:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Pet Daphnie for us.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:46:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> A hungry cat has no snooze button
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:46:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Have a good week, KK!

[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:47:07 PM EDT] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of purple sparkles.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:47:20 PM EDT] <KK> Nighters, all.
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:47:24 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Purple sparkles are very With It
[Sunday, March 17, 2024] [8:47:25 PM EDT] <Bee> tHANKS FOR COMING, kk! gOOD MEAL AND GOOD WEEK

"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
