      Almost can't help but ask for a PM, if only to talk about lore, details and 'fun times' with possible Fair Folk logic and such.

      Hi!
      I'm glad to see the author of Amelia alive.
      I searched you on other resources, but found only abandoned activity.
      I would like to ask permission to try to translate Amelia into Russian. We have a huge deficit of peering with her.
      The volume of the book is impressive, but there are no one willing to undertake translation, and machine translation suffers in terms of quality.

        Oh, there's plenty. I must have seen dozens, probably hundreds, of legitimately good fictions.

        Just, in the "story rants" location which automatically self-selects for *being shit*, it doesn't come up often.

        But, go ahead and try to strawman yourself an ad-hominem that I just don't like fiction, instead of maybe acknowledging that having a sense of taste isn't a bad thing.

        'Bad' is a moral judgment, and for the most part one's tastes generally have nothing to do with one's moral decency. You can have impeccable tastes and still be a rat bastard (the Gentleman Villain is a popular trope for a reason), or have shit taste and be a wonderful person.

      Just finished reading Amelia. And I have to say I'm blown away. While mechanically speaking, I expect there are tons of things that could be improved, emotionally speaking I was caught up in the tale from start (3 days ago) to finish (half an hour ago). You perfectly captured Worm's escalation but did it in your own way and the story of Taylia and their gradual connection was captivating. Thank you.

        Well, it won't much help with groceries unless you're in a small handful of locations, but you can generally pay bills online via your banking system. Companies like taking your money too much to refuse direct banking.

      I recently read Midara and loved it. You have mentioned that you wanted to get more readers interested in your stories. Have you considered writing a Worm fic in which Taylor with her original powers ends up in Midara world? You would probably get some people curious about your original fiction and go read it.

      Sorry I don't remember from where in Spacebattles but I found Amelia and it was the only story to manage to actually make me feel bad about not getting past 5.8 in Worm.
      It probably wasn't your intention and it might not be enough to push me to finish Worm (or Amelia) but you should probably still feel proud of that, I think so anyway.

        That said, with the ocean currents about to stall/stop, we're likely going to see a lot of Europe, Canada, Russia, and Asia freeze outright while most of the equater becomes almost completely inhospital. "Fun".

        There's no "expected ice age" to hit at all, let alone softer or harder, for at least the next few hundred years.

        Even if humans didn't exist, the planet would still be warming, and if past cycles are any indication (they're really not- four cycles does not a reliable predictor make even without monkeys playing God), it should remain that way for at least another three to four hundred years.

        I'm not arguing *with them*. I'm pretty sure they're narcissists, and part of that disease is an inability to listen to anyone but themselves.

        I'm arguing *for the audience*. If they're persuaded, the world shifts to my liking.

        Also, debating (arguing) is my favorite vice. And, if people like my style, perhaps they'll give my fiction a chance?

        I have many motives. Getting crazies to see reason isn't one.
