On the subject of Chorae posted 11 July 2004 in Author Q & AOn the subject of Chorae by Wil, Head Moderator

SPOILER












But in TWP, it talks about Chorae Crossbowman and the Scarlet Spires falling to Chorae holding archers. Why wouldn't the Spires just put up wards against projectiles (I assume that's possible)? view post

Apocalypse Now posted 12 July 2004 in The Warrior ProphetApocalypse Now by Wil, Head Moderator

Kellhus is convinced that what comes after cannot determine what comes before, therefore he cannot be the Harbinger. I think that the Prophsey that an Anasurimbor would return at the end of the world came BEFORE Kellhus and that the Apocalypse came AFTER Kellhus, therefore he can be the Harbringer. Because what comes after can't (and didn't) determine what comes before.

Note: this was after a long discussion with Sovin, so I hope it makes sense. view post

Week One: Wil posted 12 July 2004 in Member Written WorksWeek One: Wil by Wil, Head Moderator

The small gravel path seemed to stretch on forever, as it always did. Norman Bales slowly trudged along this path, as he did every Sunday. He passed the small pond with the ducks and the old oak tree. He noticed that someone had carved something in the tree. He stopped and peered at it, apparently someone named Lisa was a whore. He sadly shook his head and continued on down the path.

He soon came to the bench. He stopped and stared at it. He remembered sitting there with her, when they would come to visit her parents. They would sit and talk about stupid things. They seemed stupid at the time anyway. Now Norman wished he could remember just one of those conversations. He knew he had laughed; Claire had always been witty, even when visiting her parents.

He sat down, trying as hard as he might to remember. He closed his eyes, and heard laughter. It seemed to be hers; a light jingle like a tiny bell. He remembered her smile, and how she always complained that her front teeth were too big. And her eyes, those marvelous green eyes, with the left slightly higher on her face then her right. He would tease her mercilessly about that. She would laugh and say at least her face didn’t look like the backside of a horse.

Norman smiled to himself, remembering. He stood up and contained his journey. He came to the spot where they had laid in the grass and talked. He remembered those talks, how she had said that she was going to leave him; that she couldn’t stay with him. She didn’t know when I would be, but it made him cry every time. She had said it before they got married, that she would leave him someday. Like a fool, he had believed that he could keep her here, that she wouldn’t leave because of him. He was wrong.

Falling to his knees in the grass, Norman wept. He put his forehead to the ground smelling the grass. The smell flooded him with memories, all of them memories of her. He fell to his side and closed his eyes, savouring the memories.

Water on his face woke him. He opened his eyes to darkness and sprinklers. He had fallen asleep there on the grass, for about three hours it seemed. Norman stood up and began back down the path. The small gravel path seemed to end too soon, as it always did. At the gate, Norman turned and looked back up the path. Then he stepped out and resumed his life knowing he would be back next Sunday. view post

Week One: Replay posted 15 July 2004 in Member Written WorksWeek One: Replay by Wil, Head Moderator

I enjoyed this a lot. It was well written and I thought that it was very interesting to read. I'm not very good at talking about other's work, so I'll just give you my general impressions.

I thought the descriptions in the first paragraph were really good. But the second and third were lacking in detail. I thought the internal dialog was good, but I would have liked to see more physical description of what he was seeing. Description of a scene can say a lot about what a character is feeling, without saying it outright.

There are some paragraphs that I feel could have been expanded on. "The priest only nodded. He knew there was something else Gabe wished to say. " is one of them. It felt like it wanted to go somewhere but it didn't.

I have to get going; I'll try to add more later. Good Job. view post

Sovin and I agreed that once we got over one hundred members we would look for another moderator. We are opening this up to all members, however remember that we will take into account how long you've been with us, number of posts, and how many different categories you post in.

I would like to invite all who are interested in the position to PM me (Wil) with a couple paragraphs why you think you would be a good moderator for our site. Thank you and I'm looking forward to your applications. view post

The problem of evil posted 20 July 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionThe problem of evil by Wil, Head Moderator

I have thought long and hard on an issue similer to this (especally when questioning my own fait, I was raised Mormon).

Without evil, good could simply not exist. There has to be some balance or we could not regognized evil. It's like if the sun never set and hadn't since the beginning of time. "night" would not exsits, so there would be no reason for the concept of "day".

As for why God dosen't destroy evil, I think that if he did, he could no longer be loving, caring, and benevolent because those words would no longer hold any meaning, because that is all there is.

I hope this makes sense. view post

Just something that hit me the other night when thinking about this. It may not contribute much to the conversation but it's a quote that when I heard, I liked a lot.

"God exists, my friend. He just doesn’t give a damn." view post

Dan Brown posted 26 July 2004 in Literature DiscussionDan Brown by Wil, Head Moderator

Why's that, Grantaire?


I read Da Vinci Code, and I liked it a lot, but not really for the writing. I thiught that the things that it talked about were very interesting about the sacred feminine and all that. Because of that I bought some other books on the subject, I was not, however impressed by Brown's writing, seemed a little dry and I hate the end-of-chapter cliffhangers all the time. I would deffinately suggest it for anyone to read, becasue it's so interesting. view post
