Life before death. Strength before weakness. Journey before destination.

  • I think the weirdest thing about growing up is realising everyone's just winging it. At 12, 16 year olds seemed so confident and self assured. At 16, people in their 20s were so wise. And now, at 20, I have no idea what's happening and neither does anyone my age xD

  • Not a part of NaNoWriMo, but- I haven't been idle these last few months! The dark fantasy novel I've been working on is almost complete! I've crossed the 100k mark and started writing the final chapters. Had to take a short break because I fell really sick, but I hope to be done before the end of this month!

  • I appear every few months to say I need to be more active and then proceed to not be active

    Euphory guilty as charged :')

  • Today my friend was so tired she forgot what a beetroot is and called it "the red-coloured fruit that makes blood"

    Hkumar Happened with me once. I called it "rat looking thing that tastes bitter"

  • Am I the only one who doesn't particularly like season 4 of Stranger Things? I was led to believe that it's really good, as good as the first season, but... six episodes in and I don't like it nearly as much as the previous seasons. There's a lot to like, but also a lot more to dislike compared to 2 and 3.
    Spoiler! :
    Will having feelings for Mike is really, really cute though, and I'm so glad that that ship is at least partly canon :D

  • Ahhhh. So close with Team Tortoise! I just recently moved (i finally have my own flat!!) and I've been super busy setting things up and reviewing completely slipped my mind.

    Next month, maybe. :)

    IcyFlame Congrats on the new flat!! You did a pretty impressive job of TT nonetheless <3

  • Anyone have fantasy/sci-fi stories they'd like me to take a look at this month, let me know! I don't mind if there are a lot of chapters, I'd be happy to read them! :D

    IcyFlame There are currently a lot of chapters of IceFlame, The Quest for Fire - Into the Mists and The Many Gifts of Malia in the Green Room so if nobody replies to you directly they'd be a fab place to start <3

  • Some of you may not have accepting friends or family. Some of you are still in the closet. Some of you can't risk coming out. This month is for all of us.
    It can be difficult and painful. It can be so, so hard. But we're here for you even if no one else is <3
    This month is for that quiet, private little glow of happiness in you. For the sense that you're not alone.
    We love you and we're here for you. We accept who you are. Take care of yourself :)

    Happy pride month, everyone!

  • I just went through the new members list and... did we get a whole lot of spam accounts?

    winterwolf0100 There are always a lot of spam accounts unfortunately. However, if you see one actively posting spam, hit a mod up!

    Spoiler! :

    With a week left in May, it is time to announce something very exciting. You've been waiting patiently for it... THE GREAT TEAM TORTOISE RACE is back this June!! While every month reviewers have the opportunity to participate in Team Tortoise by reviewing every day, this June everyone is especially called upon to attempt this great feat and if you're able to write at least one review every day you'll even earn a special badge! This year several mods have also volunteered to be Team Tortoise Cheer Captains and will be encouraging the Tortoise reviewers throughout the month in this thread as they approach the finish line.

  • I really want to join Team Tortoise this year, hopefully it'll keep me more active!

    Also, side note: I haven't stopped writing! I've not published anything here for a while, but my current WIP, started in October, is at 66k words and I hope to finish it by July :D
    I also want to start writing poetry again, it's a great way to vent.
