    The Legend of Zelda

    I have to say, I got bored of Hyrule Warriors really quickly, in large part because the original characters were plainly not Zelda characters. That is to say, not in the style or spirit of The Legend of Zelda. So if this game means a cast of actual Legend of Zelda characters, then I'm...

    Event Summer 2020 Oneshot Competition Discussion

    I've been coming down from the mad writing dash of the last week - and spending, what, six weeks on the same story? It's been nice to change up the writing process somewhat, but I wouldn't want to do it all the time. The pressure of a deadline tends to incentivise getting the words down and...

    TEEN: Machina Est Amor [Summer 2020 One-shot]

    Rated TEEN for implicit and/or infrequent depictions of blood, injury, and/or violent deaths. MACHINA EST AMOR < 0 > Sing, O divine engine, of the pride and folly of man, that pride which struck down the valiant princeps for his hubris and brought disaster upon the Legio Alastor. Thus were...

    Rules The Writers' Workshop Rulebook & Information Hub

    He's got the general gist of it Announcements and Events Summer 2020 seems to have been unkind on many of us writing here, so we've decided on a second extension to the Summer One-shot competition - new deadline is now 13th September. However, posting can begin from now, so anyone who finishes...

    Anime What was the last anime you watched before posting in this thread?

    Diary of Our Days at the Breakwater, episode 9. Strange how anime doesn't usually just use random and wildly inappropriate stock noises for animals - but this episode did have me thinking "Grey herons do not sound like that"

    American Presidential Election Thread, 2020 Edition

    Oh, and the College of Arms caught him trying to steal heraldry that he had no right to. In the roll of iniquity it's a very small footnote, but there is something heartening about a crusty and apparently obsolete institution refusing to allow arms to be simply bought

    Writers' Workshop General Chat Thread

    I'm really not going to help with the organisation of a contest on another site. There's more than enough effort involved in running the Workshop

    American Presidential Election Thread, 2020 Edition

    I really don't have a horse in this race, but this just bothers me. The authors of the 22nd Amendment apparently were. Others apparently aren't. It's a legitimate question of political philosophy that has nothing whatsoever to do with the American 2020 presidential election. Assuming both of...

    Trope of the Month September: Antiheroes

    Antiheroes - the character archetype everyone feels they're familiar with, but nobody manages to satisfactorily define. To give one attempt at a definition, antiheroes are the characters you're supposed to root for but are flawed in some major way. The flaws in their heroism vary, but in any...
