Oh next time we see Yuki something is going to go down
Ahhhh Anzan might run into some trouble with someone on the way but I say too much.
Next chapter has proved to be quite a bit longer...

Chapter XXXXI- His men
In the years since Suzume and I had left the village and the monastery, I had thought on Shizurako much, on the kindness he showed to me and Suzume, the...

Re: Dans l'ombre de l'Aigle - "Under the Shadow of the Eagle' - By isa0005 (Last Updated: 2/11/2016 - Chapter Five On Hold!)
It's all good isa0005 we all experience Writer's block and the best thing to overcome it is to enjoy yourself or write something else (which you seem to be doing). I'll definitely give Random Access...

Yeah I was thinking along those lines but I don't think any chapter has gotten that long so far. Hope you're enjoying the story:)
Ooohhh this look's interesting. Harald Hardrada's life was so interesting and I look forward to which part you'll follow be it his invasion of England or maybe his Russian and Byzantine exploits.

Amazing last two chapters, I love your decision to have Yannick join the Companions (nice Godfather allusion as well) and his musings on being paid and buying things and his almost fear of Lydia's...

Well it was a bday present to me to get some time to write and finish that chapter and work on the next. I didn't really plan on adding Jirou when I first started the chapter but I look forward to...

Little birthday post for you guys. This one's been sitting on the editing pile for a bit too long, got caught up in stuff unfortunately and next chapter should be out quite soon indeed.

Chapter XXXX- The Tiger and the Eagle
The dreams stopped after that night. Sleep was but a blank canvas with no paint to make it alive. When she lay down weary at...

My friend, I haven't read the latest chapter, just read the one before it and what can I say?? What a chapter! My own story pales in comparison to this. The mood of the piece, of the dialogue, of the...

I sent you a PM trying to explain it rather than clogging up this thread.

Yeah no worries. Do you want the psd files if you have photoshop, they might be a bit easier to use than just pngs.

Idk I have a different view of her. Tyrian's views on his childhood and his relationships with Jaime and Cersei (albeit biased) seemed to indicate that Cersei didn't really ever have a kind soul...

Got a lot of reading to do before I could actually give an informed vote hahaha.

Hahaha thank you so much for your comments and encouragements and continued reading, I really like that line, some lines just come to you I guess.
Think of Akara as more akin to Margaery...

Disgusting stereotyping, in my time i have seen many a lead weight swim freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke. Some can be very good swimmers and I reject your revolting generalisation.

Haven't commented in a while but I have been keeping up I promise. Really good stuff as usual Caillagh I really like the choices you've been making in terms of the story and its direction and not...

Recently I’ve been playing lots of Dishonoured (and admittedly not enough writing although enough to get a new chapter out soon)....

Damn Caillagh, some really good last chapters. Your descriptions of Windhelm really set the scene and the characters you've created there and their dialogue and actions really make it feel alive. Of...

I liked the sort of play-like chorus intro you did there Hitai. And of course I love returning to follow Nishina. Ahhhhh can't wait to see even more.

Re: Dans l'ombre de l'Aigle - "Under the Shadow of the Eagle' - By isa0005 (Last Updated: 2/11/2016 - Chapter Four Released!)
Just read Chapter 4. Loved it as usual! Your descriptions of everything, especially Paris are really amazing and the imagery so vivid that I have such a clear picture of everything that is going on....

Me too when I read the play a couple of years ago. Tbh Shylock's also kind of a merchant (though he may just be a moneylender) but yeah.

Voted, a very intriguing and different group of submissions. I liked them all, difficult to choose unfortunately.

Great start, Rogal Dorn, I really like the style you write in and interesting to see a CK2 AAR. The Piasts were one of my first Ck2 playthroughs so they hold a special place in my heart. You make me...
January 26, 2016, 07:54 PM
Thanks though I feel there was a bit too much dialogue in the last chapter. And why do you need my so called 'ability' to write dialogue when you have your beautiful descriptive prose?
January 26, 2016, 03:57 PM
Another witty chapter, I like Shulgak 'the green elf' and her snappy dialogue. I had to say you nearly had me fooled even with the pictures. I saw the pictures and was like she's not a green elf,...

Chapter XXXVIII- Amateur Plotters

Thanks so much for your words and reading Caillagh. I read somewhere that in dreams all the faces are those that you've seen because your brain can't produce an original so that's why I had her...
January 25, 2016, 04:59 AM
Just caught up with all of this. Some really fabulous writing here, I love the plot and the characters and you write the dialogue between them so well and each scene has just the right amount of...

With all the forum rollbacks and a bit of down in activity throughout the month, I'm going to extend this until the end of the month (1 more week) to give more of those who haven't nominated the time...
