Starbuck was my least favorite character in BSG. She was trying way too hard to be "one of the guys" all the time.

Tails, if you're going to write a teenage fantasy romance, draw inspiration from Cassandra Clare rather than Stephenie Meyer. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare is better than The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. Both are sappy teenage romance stories set in the modern world against a fantasy background, but where Stephenie's novels are all about girl issues, sparkly vampires and puppy werewolves, Cassandra takes on angels, demons, warlocks and the old-fashioned vampires (cunning predators who go up in flames if exposed to sunlight).

They're doing the movies for them now, with the first movie released August 2013:

City of Bones

That trailer looks awesome Maz! I'll definitely have to check that out in some form.

When I say more like Hermione, I didn't mean exactly like her. Smiley: lol I agree that her insufferable know-it-all qualities were definitely annoying. I wouldn't want to make my heroine like that. I just meant someone who is intelligent, independent, strong, and not quite so focused on boys. The vast majority of teenage girls are interested in boys (other than the ones who like girls of course), so it's difficult to not have any sort of romance in the story at all, but it doesn't have to be the focus of the plot.

Normally, I'm not, but I like her writing style. The main characters in her works almost all possess a sarcastic and dry sense of humor which is right up my alley (and very not like the teenagers I know). And while there are times where it's painfully obvious that the author is a woman (seriously, girls, you can't actually see a guy's muscles "cord" under his skin through a sweater), it's a lot more about beating the sh*t out of bad guys than Twilight ever was.

I also like her take on the mythos more than Stephenie's. There are angels and demons as the two warring "species" from other dimensions, with humans in the middle. Then there are the hybrids, like fairies (when a mommy angel and a daddy demon love each other...), warlocks (demon and human mix) and Shadowhunters (humans who drank the blood of the angel Raziel), plus those infected by the demonic diseases: vampires and werewolves. No one sparkles. Well, one Warlock does, but that's because he enjoys wearing glittery makeup (he's homosexual, yes actually, he's bisexual). Smiley: lol

And yeah, it's incredibly cliche, with the nerdy girl who thinks she's insignificant, suddenly able to see "the shadow world" which causes her to be pulled into this fantasy universe where she discovers that she isn't insignificant after all. Her best friend is in love with her, but she obviously falls in love with Mr. Fantastic who not only looks like an angel (something she reminds us of throughout the series), but is also a pretty badass demon hunter and killer (something he reminds everyone of throughout the series). You know, all the intrigues of a love story and all the various personalities that enable you to identify with someone regardless of who you are, but with way more focus on the cool stuff.

I'd call it an amped up Buffy clone.

I have no shoes, going to wear slippahs. Have to buy pants, I only have work pants and shorts.

Don't worry, I wouldn't write a book about that. At least not now. As fun as that would be, I don't think the American young adult fiction industry is ready for something like that. I might be being pessimistic there, but that's my concern.

The premise of writing young adult fiction is going to guarantee a bad book. Young teens are morons.

Write a good fiction novel with thematic elements regarding sense of self and finding ones place in the world instead.

Well, this board has been going for what, a good 15+ years? Although it is a little annoying knowing we're only a little over halfway there and moreso that it's unlikely we'll be allowed to hit that mark.





Unless we spam 18000 posts in a very very very short time and we hit that before they start noticing the bogged down servers! Smiley: tongue

I woke up about a hour and a half ago (at 10). Not that early, but I did it without an alarm and that hasn't happened in many years.
I guess that's just my body getting used to my new sleeping pattern.

Color blindness is the only sight thing that could prevent you from joining our police force, as far as I can remember. If you've got bad eyesight, you need to wear lenses. Or special security glasses like our soldiers use, I think. The kind that don't shatter and spear your eyeballs if you get an elbow to the face.

Don't quote me on it as it's been a while since I cared about all that stuff. I also didn't have issues with my sight at the time. Think I'm going nearsighted now, though. Too many hours in front of the computer, I guess. Fortunately, glasses look like sh*t on me... wait, that's not fortunate at all! Smiley: frown

The wiki entry for intentionality is way different from the Danish encyclopedia explanation, so I was pretty confused. From what I understood reading the interwebs, causality is about explaining while intentionality is about interpreting.

Whatever, crap essay is crap, and sent. Now I can focus on my intern thing starting tomorrow. Need to write some lesson plans. Seven weeks of teaching kids before going back to school and writing my BA. Time's moving too fast right now and needs to slow the hell down, dammit.

It's not much different in the real world. Some lady sold a grilled cheese sandwich for $28,000 on eBay after claiming the Virgin Mary had appeared on it. The very first auction on eBay was for a broken laser pointer. Sold for almost $15.

People should send me their money instead of wasting it on that stupid sh*t.

Holy sh*t I love going to my parent's house for dinner.

Chateaubriand steak, sautéed mushrooms, twice-baked potatoes, caesar salad, and a couple $300 bottles of wine.

I normally don't eat like a pig, but tonight I ate and drank a ridiculous amount. So damn good.

That's how I feel when I don't live at home too. My mom only cooks dinner once or twice a week, but whenever I'd come home for a weekend or so, she'd make dinner and my step-dad would bbq steak. That man can cook a damn good medium rare steak.

Other than the mushrooms, that dinner sounds amazing.

$300 wine, wat.

I don't think I've ever had a $300 wine. My family enjoys wine way too much for that to be financially sane. We've had some $150-200 wines, but they were disappointing, considering the price.

Yeah, my mom's hobby is wine. She collects inexpensive (but good) bottles to see how they age over the years, but she'll spend hundreds on a bottle or two for a special occasion.

In this case, this was celebrating my brother getting a job offer in Japan.

They're worth it if you're not the one footing the bill. Smiley: tongue

And if you have a big enough cellar (and stock up smart) you'll eventually end up with some very expensive wines, even if you've only paid $10 or 20 for the bottles.

$300 wine, wat.

I don't think I've ever had a $300 wine. My family enjoys wine way too much for that to be financially sane. We've had some $150-200 wines, but they were disappointing, considering the price.
They're worth it if you're not the one footing the bill. Smiley: tongue

And if you have a big enough cellar (and stock up smart) you'll eventually end up with some very expensive wines, even if you've only paid $10 or 20 for the bottles.


Stock smart is the key, also unlikely a 20$ initial buy.

My mom's side of the family are actually from California (the Sacramento area is where our ranches were until this past year when we sold them) and have been collecting wine throughout the history of the area's development into what it is today.

My grandmother got offered cases of wine for some of the bottles she had; there was one instance where the winery came to her and offered her 5 cases per bottle she gave back to them.

My mom is the same way. It's unlikely that any of the wine that my mom has bought for $20 is worth $300+ now, but definitely some that my grandparents bought is in that range now simply due to age and rarity.
