Yo how long do you guys write your chapters mostly? I'm worried about my thread dropping off the front page because it takes me a solid week and a half to pump out a coherent chapter (normally about 15-20 pages/6000 words). Should I start cutting the chapters up to keep things rolling an...

Not just killed. Stabbed in the back by his adopted son. Brutus was just his m8, Octavian, later Augustus, was his adopted son. Although apparently the way it went down is that the twelve senators just gave him little pokes with their knives (being the fat old men they were) and Brutus was ...

I'll go with the relationship. Why? Simple: because no matter how many territories you conquer, you're still a loser. Caesar was very much a winner. Dude was baller, fashion icon (get that skinny toga action), sex icon; he revolutionized the republic, he had everything going for him...

after rereading my fic. I'm debating with myself over whether or not I should drop the Hideki subplot entirely. . . The test is whether or not it adds anything, if it's interesting then a rework is all that would be required. Get some second opinions, feel the pacing of the story as a whole...

Konami has a lot more going for it than just video games, it's part of the problem; they have so much other stuff the management probably just doesn't care about video games at all.

Kojima needs a budget and a AAA company (KS campaigns would only be disastrous), but he needs editors just as badly, a couple of people to step in for once and tell him to reign it in.

19 books into the Sharpe series.

Started off great, feeling some fatigue now that it's been almost exclusively what I've read for many a month.

I wish Sharpe would stop being so pissed off at everything sometimes.

Updated with the second part of chapter one, just deals with more backstory of characters. This is fun to write so far; the more I do so the more I see possibilities to open up. I can't wait to see what happens (I have a plan don't worry) Looking forward to more of this. As long as ...

I'm back to writing after a long break from the pursuit in part solicited by school and in part my own laziness. Currently working on what should be a reasonably long FF set six months after Near Fourth impact and following in particular the events onboard a smaller ship in the Wunder's flee...

She's not, though. She's in Unit 01, and Gendo desperately wants to see her again. I always wondered how he would explain the Akagi business to her if he ever got his wish. I suppose. Gendo would most likely justify it as a means to an end, much like Yui's means to an end of using Eva t...

But she's dead, in my mind at least it's fair game after that.

All the other stuff was spot on though.

N3I was, when we strip it down to the barest necessaries, the best possible outcome of that fight. If Shinji had done nothing at all, Zeruel would have wiped everyone out. Furthermore, if Shinji hadn't come back when he did in 3.0, Asuka could very well have died. Shinji can and does do some ve...

It's 230 in the morning and I've finished a long haul on the compositional portfolio I'll be submitting for University review and application. It's going well, although my weaknesses are showing somewhat more clearly than I would like.

Such is life I suppose, things to work on.

I've had enough time to rewatch the entire series and all rebuild movies with the Japanese voices, and get used to them. Although it would be nice to hear Spencer as Shinji again I don't care enough at this point to buy the DVD.

I wonder how many sales Funimation is losing like this.

I don't think she meant that he couldn't sync with any Eva at all, just not with Unit-01, as she specifically mentions his deep sync rate with Unit-01. Otherwise, if that were really the case, I feel like a bigger deal would have been made over his ability to pilot Unit-13, rather than his ...

Boy do I. This last year was somewhat superfluous for me and a lot of my friends who'd already gained entrance to their chosen courses, so it was just a year filled with people saying "I'm so done with school".

School is generally used for primary or secondary education. Tertiary (college) is called University or Uni down here where the Kiwis roam.

Still, done with high school, awesome.
