I dislike that it is required you pay for the ability to trade on the world market, and even more so that it only lasts an hour.

Well, first of all, the whole point is that it’s based entirely on the sense of sight. Second of all, thank you for the assistance with the sentence, and third, thank you for providing constructive criticism.

Could you maybe spell better so I can understand what you’re trying to say?

Topic: The Arts / Short Story

I wrote a short story yesterday and I want to see if it gets the reaction I’m hoping for. Please enjoy:

See

Lola could see the couple in the apartment next to hers fighting, first with words, then with fists, as she walked in, hanging her car keys on the key holder her brother had built for her. Lola could see the painting on the wall, the one of the sunset and the meadow, as she poured her coffee. What Lola didn’t see, was the man hiding in her closet with a knife. What Lola didn’t see, was the splurt of blood splattering the man’s face as he stabbed, deep into her heart, leaving a hole that could not be mended. What Lola did not see, was the man’s look of excitement turn to fear as he realized he had just commited a crime far worse than burglary. What Lola did not see, was her heart slowly pump all the blood out of her body. What Lola did not see, was her brother coming two hours later, to check on her, and being horrified as he stepped in the pool that was covering the kitchen tiles. What Lola did not see, was her brother’s face, slowly changing over the days, from mourning to one of relief. What Lola did not see, were two bullies following him out of school, and clapping him on the back for “finally having someone getting rid of your retard sister” What she did not see was her brother smiling, and agreeing with them. What Lola saw, was the picture from her kitchen wall. She saw herself inside of it, playing in the meadow with the other ghosts. But what Lola did see, if she tried really hard, was her brother’s smile. And that made her feel better, when she was sad that she couldn’t find him in the meadow.

That is a terrible idea.

OT is not the sort of place where people can appreciate literature. It is a land where everybody shouts their five cents of random crap just ‘cause. I think it’s better off being kept to FGF, although perhaps simply have a single post, a table of contents, of sorts, linking to each chapter, posted on a separate site.

Fairly descent writing, by the way. Having said that, I can’t say for sure if I like either one yet. I feel like the natural progression, for either one of those, would be to then ‘start from the beginning’ and begin with a pedestrian story which eventually leads into the chaos that is the scenes you’ve shown us. If you plan on doing that, great. Otherwise, I think it might be a bit meh.

Just my five cents. Happy writing!

Thank you. I will take that into account and try to start them a bit more normally than that.

I’d expect the arts to get you more intelligent replies than off-topic would.


Alright. I’ll take this there but I will provide a link to the site where I will be storing this on my profile if anyone wants to give more constructive criticism.

Alright, um, here are the introductions to the two best ideas I had.

INTROS
The Caged

Accessing data transmission… Title: BOOK OF REVOLUTION.
Display? Y/N
Nick was intrigued by this message. He had heard of this “Book of Revolution”. In whispers, of course, not anywhere where the Whitecoats could hear. And here it was, just sitting here on the Lab’s only computer Caged could access, and even then, only for a short period of time. Nick dragged the cursor towards “No”. He didn’t want to get in trouble with the Whitecoats. Nick laughed silently. Of course he didn’t. No one did, because that meant further Tests, which were sure to find you as “more powerful than they initially realized,” and they would take you to a “special testing center”, smack dab in the middle of what used to be called the Sahara. And it was common knowledge about what happened there. Common enough to warrant another name- “the Slaughterhouse.” Whoo, boy. Nick certainly did not want to get in trouble and be sent there. He was glad his powers fell on the low end of the scale. At least, they did after he… convinced the testers that he wasn’t as good as the Tests said he was. But, at the very last second, Nick swung the cursor towards the “Yes” and, making the riskiest, but also the most life changing decision he would ever have a chance to make, he clicked it. And the accept pop-up after that, and the one after that, and- they certainly were giving him a lot of chances to turn back, weren’t they? Well, that’s too bad, because Nick was now much more determined to continue on. After all, why give so many chances to turn back and leave if there wasn’t something really exciting at the end of the road??

The Colony

Aaron felt he was on to something. Even now, in the year 2598, no one else had been able to follow the clues as he had. To… connect the dots, per se. He, a 15 year old boy, had risen to the top of the JuneCorp corporate ladder quicker then ever before, setting company records left and right. With no help from anyone! Well, maybe his father had a little something to do with it. But that wasn’t the point. The point was, Aaron had followed a trail of clues left by Sir John Franklin in the 19th century that amazingly, no one else had seen! Sir John Franklin had first convinced the British to let him sail on a fourth arctic expedition, saying he was trying to find the Northwest Passage, but he had actually been on to soemthing much, much more exciting! And now, hundreds of years later, the youngest JuneCorp CEO in history, boy Aaron loved saying that, had stumbled onto quite possibly the most well-kept secret of all time! He had just finished the checklist on the expedition team, and they were now boarding the HoverPods 2.3942, the most efficient JuneCorp prototype yet! It ran entirely off of an on-board anti-grav matrix, with no waste! Anyways, now Aaron and a hand-picked group of other JuneCorp technicians tuned in to the crew’s eye cameras, all outside noise falling to nothing but the occasional breath. They watched, as hours later, the team found a stairwell carved into the ice, carefully concealed by a snowdrift that Aaron would swear his life had never melted once. And they watched as the team came across a room, whos main attraction was the softly glowing white oval, which pulsed like a heartbeat. They watched as one of the team was pushed through, coming out again a moment later with a look of wonder on his face.
Yep. Aaron was definitely on to something.

Yeah… I tried to do that like, four times. I did finish the first one, over six years ago… but it was crap beyond your imagination. And I never finished any of my next attempts. Never even really started any of them, really. So if you’re going to write a novel, good luck; I hope you have the will to continue.

Thank you, B_S. I’m sorry none of your attempts worked out.

I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT!
Not really anything important.

I have decided to write a novel!
All through middle and high school, people tell me that I’m good at writing. I never believed them, mostly because not a lot of people get a chance to critique my work, because I’m sort of scared of criticism. So I figured, there is basically no better way to get criticism then release it as open viewing to the internet. So from now on I will be doing that. Probably in Off Topic, but if you guys would let me, I’d rather post it here chapter-by-chapter.

Also I’m really, really sorry if this sounds really self-centered, which is most likely does. I’m not trying to do that, I’m just trying to get some constructive criticism. So sorry.

Well, this might be interesting. The only problem is, my schedule fluctuates, and I cannot be sure of constant posts in the game, so I don’t want to get kicked for not being able to get to my computer.

Oloroar
“No.” My face hardens into a solemn mask. How many times has every, ANY magi been asked that question. It wasn’t a thing the first time I was asked it, and it never will be. Except for that one time… well, I don’t talk about what happened on my trip. I am legally bound to refuse any questions about what happened, or what I did, or who fixed me. People usually think that. That when I left, I was broken, and I came back fixed. I wasn’t fixed in any stretch of the word. I’m still the original Oloroar the Mad. Off topic, and I am probably violating my agreement somehow by even thinking this. “I will leave now. I am going to walk away, and you will not pursue me, you filthy-minded animal.” I turn my back, and before he can do anything, I Blink back into the trees. I then activate Void Walk and double back, being sure to stay hidden just in case he can see me in this form, heading in the direction the dragon threw the bear. He wouldn’t need an entire bear for himself, would he? Logically, there has to be someone else. Maybe more than one someone. I don’t know. But I’m going to find out I think resolutely.

“No. I’m a human. Magi. And that’s all you need to know.” I try my hardest to say this without sounding scared, but I don’t think it’s working. I begin slowly inching away from him, ready to Blink at a moment’s notice. Please. Please don’t turn into a dragon and bite my face off.

Having finally entered the forest, I hear a roar. A bear, maybe? I jog towards the sound, thinking someone may be in danger. Wrong. The BEAR was in danger. From a DRAGON. Now, let me emphasize this. A DRAGON is in the woods, fighting a bear. Now, maybe this isn’t something to be alarmed about, considering Shifters are a thing. But a dragon is kind of scary. In fact, I was so scared I forgot to hide behind a tree to avoid it. But the dragon throws the bear, changes into human, and walks off. “Well I should not have been as impressed by that as I was.” I say, thinking the man is out of earshot.

I shake myself, and sit up. What the fuck happened? It looks like the city fell to the ground and pretty much caused massive destruction. I don’t know how I’m alive. “Oh well,” I sigh. “Not like I wanted to die anyways. Soooooooooo no big deal?” I ask myself. I stand up, a little shaky since I haven’t used my legs in… how long? I don’t know, and won’t until I find someone else who is willing to speak to me. I orient myself in direction of a forest I know is there. I Know someone who lives there, so they can help me figure out why I was just sitting in the center of a ruined city, for like, weeks. Maybe months, maybe days, or it could have just been a few hours. I REALLY need to find out.
