Forgotten Shadows / Re: FS Out of Character Chat
Last post by DerynifanK - Today at 09:21:25 AM
What is happening in Grecotha is not limited to the university or even the city. Airich set out for Transha to give warning about the spread of anti-Deryni hate and violence. He turned back to warn his friends but now someone must give the alarm. Kelson, the leaders both of the church and the government must know what is happening and take steps to root it out. Bishop Bernard certainly can't handle this alone. His edicts won't stop it.

[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:01:10 PM EDT] Nick web31 is now known as KK.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:01:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hiya KK! 🙂
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:01:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Hello Web31
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:01:38 PM EDT] <KK> Hello, al.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:01:45 PM EDT] <KK> all
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:01:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Hello KK
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:02:08 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> We seem to be a quiet bunch today.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:02:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hello!
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:02:31 PM EDT] <KK> A small bunch, too.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:02:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Yeah, everyone's busy melting from the heat
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:02:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> but enthusiastic
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:03:14 PM EDT] <KK> It's 93 here right now.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:03:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I'm just not especially awake.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:03:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I think Revanne gave up when England lost to Spain
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:03:25 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> 96 here
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:03:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hi, KK, HoundMistress, Nezz, Evie, TM, Laurna, and anyone else I'm missing.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:03:50 PM EDT] <KK> Oh, poor England.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:04:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> What competition? Football?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:04:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Just hasn't been the same since the Plantagenets went.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:04:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Grabbing a food, brb
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:04:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Football. Spain 2, England 1.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:04:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> (Soccer, this side of the Pond, but honestly calling that "football" makes much more sense than applying that name to US football.)
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:04:58 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> The Plantagenents game on the church grounds you mena
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:05:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> The Plantagenents game on the church grounds you mean
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:06:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Euro 2024 competition, the final.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:06:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> One of my friends in the Netherlands said US football should really be called "handegg," since the "ball" is shaped more like an egg than a sphere and spends more time in contact with the players' hands than their feet.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:06:40 PM EDT] <KK> The Prince of Wales will have been disappointed.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:06:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I read 2 to 1. I can not imagine an inter game with only 3 scoring points for the whole game
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:07:06 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> US football did start somewhat closer to soccer football than it became. And there's rugby football, which has handing for the most part.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:07:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Anne shared his statement to the team before the game. made me laugh
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:07:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> A real defensive struggle of a baseball game could have a 2 to 1 score. Also hockey.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:07:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> US football did start somewhat closer to soccer football than it became. And there are several varieties of rugby football, which has handing for the most part, but I don't know that people complain about that terminology.

[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:08:47 PM EDT] <KK> Hi, Bee.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:08:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> (Sorry. Sometimes it's real darn obvious that my only siblings are older brothers, haha.)
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:09:03 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Hi everyone! Had to step out for a minute
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:09:06 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi Laaaaaaurna and all! What have I missed?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:09:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Me being pedantic about sports.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:09:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> soccor scores
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:09:21 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi KK
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:10:13 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Did your team win, Laurna?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:10:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Yeah. Real scoring is like
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:10:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Leicestershire Foxes v. Derbyshire Falcons
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:10:32 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> 184-6 (20.0) 188-6 (19.2)
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:10:33 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Derbyshire Falcons win by 4 wickets
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:10:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hi Bee
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:10:57 PM EDT] <The_Bee> HiNezz and all
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:11:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Wickets? are we playing Cricket
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:11:29 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Are they sticky wickets?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:12:17 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Someday maybe I'll watch a cricket game. It's hard to understand from just reading descriptions.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:12:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> and the last for days
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:01 PM EDT] <chris> hi all
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:06 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hi bynw
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:14 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi chris
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Cricket is easy.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> You have two sides, one out in the field and one in.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:15 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> Hi bynw
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> When both sides have been in and all the men have got out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:24 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> AFter noon Bynw. how is the house
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:13:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> So cricket isn't the game to watch if you don't have a high attention span?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:14:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> TM you are making me dizzy

[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:14:14 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Apparently that's a classic witticism.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:14:23 PM EDT] <bynw> the house is going good. we close in 2 weeks
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:14:32 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My problem is that it seems that most of the action takes place along one edge of the field.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:14:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Hi Everyone
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:14:53 PM EDT] <HoundMistress> That's good
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:15:00 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hi jerusha

[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:15:16 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> that's good news, Bynw
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:15:18 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hi Bynw
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:15:19 PM EDT] <The_Bee> hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:15:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hey Jerusha and Evie
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:15:50 PM EDT] <KK> Cameron played it in school. When I asked him how it was played, he said, I have no idea. I just go and stand where they tell me to.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:15:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I can no longer decide if I am in or out
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:16:08 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> How was your week, KK?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:16:19 PM EDT] <The_Bee> LOL! Good for Cameron!
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:17:07 PM EDT] <The_Bee> What is a "silly Midden"?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:17:22 PM EDT] <KK> Week was fine. But just now ␝ was going crazy trying to find the virtual joint class. I think it's been a while since anyone reviewed the instructions. I'll have to call them in the morning.␝
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:18:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> They are obviosly not writers
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:18:06 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> silly mid on (plural silly mid ons) (cricket) a fielding position, on the leg side, forward of the batsman's wicket, and very near the batsman; a fielder in this position
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:18:24 PM EDT] <KK> I was about to ask how to turn off italics, but hey were gone when I went to write ths.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:18:50 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Turn off Italics? Tell them you hate garlic and olive oil.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:18:56 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> No pun too stupid for me.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:18:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> LOL
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:19:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Tsk,tsk
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:19:14 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> *dusts off the mackerel launcher*
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:19:32 PM EDT] <The_Bee> thanks, I think. Can anyone conjure up a map/diagram of a cricket field?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:20:14 PM EDT] <The_Bee> ␝Is this how you do italics?␝
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:20:43 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Batsman was the name For the personal male servent On Barrara, I wondered where that came from, it must have come from Cricket
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:20:48 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Not sure how on IRC, Bee, but on DIscord you put an asterisk on either side of the text you want in italics
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:21:34 PM EDT] <The_Bee> In IRC I just hit ctrl i
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:22:01 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Wikipedia says thee, nope (which surprised me): A batman or orderly is a soldier or airman assigned to a commissioned officer as a personal servant. Before the advent of motorized transport, an officer's batman was also in charge of the officer's "bat-horse" that carried the officer's kit during a campaign.[1] This British English term is derived from the obsolete bat, meaning " <clipped message>
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:22:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> pack saddle" (from French bât, from Old French bast, from Late Latin bastum).[2] The military term long predates the appearance of the fictional superhero Batman, whose name is etymologically unrelated given his association with bats, the flying mammals of the order Chiroptera.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:22:47 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Bats are chiropractors?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:22:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Ah that makes more sense then a Military position
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:22:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Shades of Downton Abbey
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:24:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> If I call someone an old bat, do I mean that they resemble a flying mammal, or that they resemble a beaten-up old pack saddle? Points to ponder.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:24:48 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:27:51 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I finished the first 12 books of Lois McMaster Bujold. I have to say they were excelent and got better and better. No I am resting from that and trying to refind Earth again
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:28:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> "Refind Earth"?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:28:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> *keeps mouth shut*
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:28:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I think I lost it to a wormhole somer where
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:28:42 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I really need to reread those. Maybe once I finish the one I'm writing, but I think I'm about two (?) chapters from the end now?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:29:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Only TWO chapter My oh MY
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:29:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I say that guardedly, knowing how extra scenes love to sneak in.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:29:25 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Do you have publisher lined up, Evie?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:29:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> No, it's fanfic
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:29:39 PM EDT] <KK> They do. indeed, sneak in.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:29:56 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> 15th C. Gwynedd. So I think KK might have a few words if I send it to a publisher. 😉
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:30:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> To be posted someday?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:30:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Need to refind Eleven Kingdoms then and not earth
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:30:11 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Once it's polished, yes
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:30:36 PM EDT] * CambersGhost [discord] <jerusha2> offers a polishing cloth
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:30:41 PM EDT] <The_Bee> too long for the anthology maybe?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:30:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Far too long
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:30:51 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> lol
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:30:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:30:58 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I've sent KK a few short ones for the anthology
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:31:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Well, one short one and one that I suspect is also too long, but not War and Peace level of "too long." 😄
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:31:35 PM EDT] <KK> And I'll get around to reading them, one of these days, I promise.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:31:48 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I acidentally deleted my first draft of my contribution.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:31:48 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Or Polishing: Pierogi, kielbasa, cabbage dishes.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:32:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I wish I could write short stories, but my brain doesn't seem to work that way
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:32:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> TM is looking for some Mackeral for dinner
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:32:22 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Nooooo, Bee! Do you still have a copy of the original email, at least? Maybe you can save it from the attachment?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:32:39 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Bee, that is about the saddest thing ever!
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:33:31 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I never sent the email. Iwas working on finding rhymes. I remember most of the words so far.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:33:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> For a long time, I couldn't get beyond short story length. Then I managed a novelette, then one around novella length, though that one was more like a series of progressively longer stories that formed a story arc. My first novel-length one was one of my KK fanfics, but I forget which one.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:33:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Then write it again
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:34:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Then I got to where I couldn't write short form for ages.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:34:07 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I often keep my poems in my mind longbeforeI write them down.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:34:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Balance of Power, Evie?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:34:31 PM EDT] <KK> I lost a few chapters in the early days, when I was working with an Apple II-E, with floppy disks.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:34:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> *sobs*
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:34:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Anamchara?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:34:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Anything in my mind has about a 30 minute life span, I have to write it down instantlya before my brain moves on to soemthing else.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:35:08 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I think Visionaries was novel length, jerusha, so I don't think BoP was my first one, but it definitely was novel-length.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:35:28 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Ah yes, I remember Visionaries
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:35:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Uh oh, bynw's busy
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:35:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Coins was full length. and I drove Evie insane with it.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:36:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Anamchara was more novella length, I think. Or maybe extremely short novel, if you consider the smaller word counts of novels back in the 60s compared to nowadays when there are a lot more mule-chokers.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:36:07 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> But with out Evie I would not be here
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:36:09 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Bynw is busy? Call out the guards!
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:36:31 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Me either, Laurna
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:36:34 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I gave birth to you? Cool! How soon we forget! 😉
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:36:43 PM EDT] <bynw> busy?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:36:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Did you know you would have a 70 year old child?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:37:05 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Yes you did. you let out the beast, all your fault
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:37:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Mea culpa! 😄
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:37:21 PM EDT] <KK> Trying to recreate a lost passage is really difficult, and may turn out btter or worse, but it will never be the same.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:37:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Bynw, don't play innocent with us...
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:38:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I had to rewrite a story once so completely, by the time I finished, the only things that remained the same was the main character and the title. But it was a better story.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:38:13 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> That is why I like Google docs. It never forgets what you write and you can even go back and find your older versions.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:38:34 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Google docs has saved my bacon more than once
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:38:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> agreed
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:38:49 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Another Evie enovation
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:38:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yes, but back up Google Docs anyway. I have heard a few horror stories (not many) of documents being removed from it, though I think it is mostly affecting romance writers with really steamy scenes.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:39:11 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Does anything you type on Google go into Google docs?
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:39:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> No, you have to open G Drive and make a specific Google Document.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:39:35 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Or upload an existing file to Drive.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:39:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> No, Google Docs is a specific site (though it can be saved on Google Drive and some people confuse the two)
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:39:44 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I don't boil water on my documents so I am safe
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:39:55 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> The steamiest scene I ever wrote involved scorched porridge
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:40:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:40:06 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> LOL!
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:40:30 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I usually do my stuff on microword. I almost typed MicroWAVE.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:40:45 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Talk of steaming your documents.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:40:59 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I tend to go with the KK trick of just writing enough onscreen to hint at what's about to take place offscreen.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:41:27 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Then just let the curtains flutter closed
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:41:52 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Or the night unfold as it should
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:42:03 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> And kick the chaperone out of the room with or without her stool. (No worries, you'll get the reference when I post that scene. LOL!)
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:42:14 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> It depends on the story for me. I've definitely written explicit scenes, but not in this fandom.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:42:15 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> oh
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:42:21 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Evie, I kept seeing the word "onscreen" and thinking it was "obscene"
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:42:34 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> 🤣
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:42:37 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Whichever works
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:43:26 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My most explicit was inspired by Asimov's "Lecherous Limericks"
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:43:30 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I did once write a story with the intention of breaking every single rule of decency for our fanfic forum, but I only did it as a joke to horrify DR. 😉
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:43:46 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Obviously it never made it to the forum!
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:43:47 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I have yet to write an explicit scene. Some good make out scenes, but nothing R-rated.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:43:54 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> It didn't horrify me; I'm a submariner's daughter and a quartermaster's stepdaughter.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:44:02 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> pink tutus, if I remember correctly
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:44:12 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I just would never have permitted it to be posted to the forum because of forum rules.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:44:38 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Me neither. Never underestimate the power of a wink and a nod though
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:44:40 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I ran across that just the other day, Evie

[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:46:19 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> There was a young man from Cork

[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:49:17 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Well, that's a cheery thought!
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:49:26 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I can see Mardi Gras being a thing in Joux or Logreine, given some of the Codex descriptions of their coastal towns

[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:51:32 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I'll second that, TM, as a former chronic nosebleeder
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:51:53 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Yeah, but I'm thinking beads and such -- New Orleans wildness.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:52:04 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> True. I poked a hole in my fingertip sewing a cap of St. Birgitta in white linen, and a little H2O2 on a Q-tip fixed it right up.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:52:20 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Ooh, I have one of those!
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:52:23 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> (the bloodstains on my cap, not my finger)
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:52:33 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> A Birgitta cap, that is, not a Qtip

[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:55:53 PM EDT] <The_Bee> i recently heard thathydrogen peroxide can be used to help a dog vomit up poison. But it has to be new hydrogen peroxide.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:57:09 PM EDT] <KK> Yes, H2O2 reverts to H2O in time. Close cousins, but not the same thing. And If you need to make a dog vomit, best to have the best material on hand.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:57:10 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Hydrogen peroxide can be pretty dangerous, so I'm not sure about that. There's also the question of strength.
[Sunday, July 14, 2024] [7:57:34 PM EDT] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> (though I don't think strength varies as much as for rubbing alcohol)

Brother Phillip gives each of the 5 members of Elspeth's group a parchment. Granting them a warrant to investigate the death and beatings of the two students. Granting them full access to the University grounds. And permitting them to carry weapons.

"We are in dangerous times. These Willimites must be found and rooted out of the University. There is no place for violent behavior against our students. We are open to debate and discussion on the Deryni Question. But these acts must not be tolerated. His Grace is imposing strict ordinances upon everyone within the city."

He then gives them a copy of the edict that is going into place this very hour:

In the Name of Kelson, King of Gwynedd, His Grace Bernard the Bishop of Grecotha orders the following:

Be it know that,
The Grecotha city gates are to be closed at all times.
Be it know that,
Travelers to and from the city are subject to search, including all possessions, bags, wagons, chests, etc, etc.
Be it know that,
Gatherings of students outside of lectures is limited to no more than 3.
Be it know that,
Gatherings of other are limited to no more than 5.
Be it know that,
The city watch may disperse any gathering at any time if deemed to be a public danger.
Be it know that,
All blades are forbidden within the city. They must be bound to scabbards at all times.
Be it know that,
All bows of any kind must remain unstrung within the city.

These edits are effective immediately.

Quote from: DerynifanK on July 13, 2024, 07:55:50 PM@Nezz, @Laurna, Fiona and I thank you for the reprieve. I have been sick for a week; abd pain, cough, low grade fever, feeling lousy. Finally went to walk-in clinic and looks like I have an infection. Started on antibiotic and hoping I will soon feel well enough to get back to writing. Don't give up on Fiona, she's a fighter?
Oh, I have total faith in Fiona. And I have complete faith in Wash's loyalty towards her. I just like to tease our characters a little bit; helps keep them on their toes. :) <3
Meanwhile, you give that infection what-for, show it that you won't take any of its nonsense sitting down. And feel much better, soon!

Quote from: DerynifanK on July 13, 2024, 07:55:50 PM@Nezz, @Laurna, Fiona and I thank you for the reprieve. I have been sick for a week; abd pain, cough, low grade fever, feeling lousy. Finally went to walk-in clinic and looks like I have an infection. Started on antibiotic and hoping I will soon feel well enough to get back to writing. Don't give up on Fiona, she's a fighter?

Oh, I have total faith in Fiona. And I have complete faith in Wash's loyalty towards her. I just like to tease our characters a little bit; it helps keep them on their toes. :) <3
