Thread for those who like to read and write including fanfiction. Share drafts, look for beta-readers, ask for writing advice, give recommendations and do all that other cool jazz. Just remember to not bully anyone else no matter how shit their taste might be.

If anyone is interested a rather odd crossover of Friday 13th and Familiar of Zero is up for adoption and if anyone's interested PM the author. https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12524976/1/The-Unstoppable-Familiar


Anyone else feel like they lack the conceptual skills to properly evoke emotion in their writing? Just finished Disco Elysium and my writing in comparison feels like a little kid's drawing.


It comes with practice. Frankly I find it best to picture myself as a character in the situation and thinking "what would be consistent with my character to feel and say" and from there write it out.


I dunno, man. It feels like I'm actually lacking something foundational to my cognition. As in, I will only ever be capable of flimsy conceptualisation, no matter how much I practice.


It's possible (some people have trouble picturing objects or concepts in their heads) but I think the best is to just
A) read a lot of wordy literature, expand your vocabulary
B) whenever you see a situation, a conversation, or whatever, try to step back and place yourself as one of the people and empathize with them, just let the words that come to mind go on paper, and then reorganize and clean it up afterwards.

Can you recommend any free VPNs to watch Olympics stuff from different countries' official channels?

Let's make a thread to discuss, review and analyze tv shows. Everybody is binging something these days.
Argue about dvd commentaries, Post your thesis on King of the Hill, Reminisce about a tv show you used to watch but don't quite remember it's title. Just about anything related to shows. Post your highscore on those Ben 10 CN flash games. Anything goes.

Brooklyn 99 is ending and I'm sad. Is there anything new the could replace it and numb my depression? No old shit, I want new stuff that will keep me going to years to come.


I'm watching The Underground Railroad and this might be one of my most favorite shows of all time. What a disturbingly beauitiful, epic journey.

Was I Wouldn’t Go In There the most redpilled ghost hunting show? The entire premise of the show is that it already admits that ghosts are fake and only focus on why the people believe that those places are haunted in the first place. Most ends with the explanation about the mass mental scarring of imperialism in Asia. One of the only shows that on Natgeo that talks about shit like Dutch colonial crimes in Indonesia, French political prisons in Indochina, War crimes committed by South Koreans to their own civilians and the US occupation of the Philippines.


Wow. They made a ghost show like that

What's your personality type? INFP gang represent. Also daily reminder that MBTI and even Jungian cognitive functions are not a concrete analysis of how people behave, it's only a general prediction of how people behave over a period of time when faced with various situations.

I just love her. She is hysterically erotic for me. I love her "robotic opportunist war criminal" mannerisms. I can't get her out of my head. I let her live there at her expense as big bitch. We love it, don't we coomers?

Lmao, I never considered mr Trump as an asexual icon before. We love him yes we do.
I noticed you had a somewhat above average extroversion compared to most here, and it's interesting that Trump is very bombastic and energetic

Kek have you ever busted a nut to her? You have a pretty high emotional stability compared to most coomers I know but I guess "the least ugly american war criminal" is a refined taste

Interesting, what the hell is the background behind this photo?

Why do I keep getting fucking pimples?

I'm in my mid 20s.
I eat healthy
I drink a lot of water.
I change pillow cover weekly
I use face wash in the morning with my shower
I use moistureizer after to not have it dry out (I really wish I knew this during high school!)

Why do I still end up getting white heads/pimples? Also, "god forbid" I have a single fucking snack on a weekend, let's say some fast food or some chips and a coke. My face will look like I just hit puberty for 1.5 weeks until it goes back to the "normal" of my regular shitty baseline of 1-3 zits emerging randomly across my face again.

What the fuck?

While I'm at it, what am I missing? I've heard that there's some product that you apply specifically on a zit and then it's gone the next day. What's the technical name for that?


>I change pillow cover weekly
every 2 weeks is enough, you get less detergent residue on your skin
>I use face wash in the morning with my shower
>I use moisturizer
probably too much product and too much washing

>I've heard that there's some product that you apply specifically on a zit and then it's gone the next day.

70% alcohol, if you are fearless you can freezburn it with liquid nitrogen


>freezburn it with liquid nitrogen
Pretty sure that's for sun spots / moles lol You mean amateurs self-apply this? Sounds dangerous as fuck
>70% alcohol
Yeah, looked up, found this clip https://youtu.be/lQPjbsVh61c . It seems to support your claim, while also mixing in some other tips like using a needle and q-tips. Also mentions salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.

Reading onward it seems I may have neglected the order in which I apply stuff. Sometimes I've applied moisturizer before either using an abrasive toner or shaving. That may have not only countered the effectiveness (oil blocking pores from product) or worsened acne lol should've double-checked that one! Online guides definitely specify applying moisturizer last in whichever skincare routine.


Dermatologist propaganda to scare you off with the needle onto their hands. Just wait for white head and then squeeze from sides without your nails.

Akchualy the reason it's 14 IPs is because 90% of this thread is mirrored from bunkerchan, since this thread dates back a while. 14 IPs are only posters on this site, and there's only like 34 dozen posts that are from this site and not mirrored.

Issue 2 and a faction of the capes are literally invading china, busting open uiyghur concentration camps and parking nukes on Xi's successor's lawn, then having arguments about how they have to do it because interventionism is based.


Not something outside of Millar’s writing mind you. The dude genuinely believes in world policing even though the people who do it being a bunch of self righteous fascists. In his Authority run he had the group straight up invade Tibet and take it from China.
The only few comics that do this trope in a coherent way are books like Miracle Man where the “heroes” took over, overthrew capitalism, nation states and then rule over as gods. The other one of my personal guilty pleasure is No Hero, in which the world is so sick of the superpowered vigilantes that they joined forces to murder them all. Since these bastards had been in the world since the 70s most of their changes were horrific.


Yeah I'm not enjoying this book but I'll keep reading it for more lib idiocy.

No Hero is terrible, but I'm definitely also in that guilty pleasure camp. I think it's that one where the guy makes himself a dick out of someone's spine.

So the "solution" is simply not having curly hair?


nah you could go dreadlocks instead.


motherfucker, I know I don't exist in a vacuum, but I got my style from other influences, not current fashion trends, and I'm sure most of us do the same.


Just have medium long with some light oil to reduce volume.


All styles have either been a past trend, are currently a trend or will be a future trend.

>>18426 (me)

I've watched it, and it's a very good spy movie. At the beginning, we see one of the communists spilling out details about the operation to avoid being shot, but our four protagonists don't know about it. The operation is kaput from the start, which makes sure the movie is always tense. All of the spies are smart, making moves to withhold/extract information from others. This feels exactly like what a spy movie should feel.

Unfortunately, I can't say I enjoyed the movie to it's fullest. There were moments where I couldn't absorb new information fast enough. All the characters wear the same clothes, which did not make things easier, plus I find remembering their names quite hard. A character/event flowchart would be a welcome companion while watching it.

From what I've been able to research, this is actually a prequel to the 2012 tv show "悬崖" (Cliff) by the same writer, Quan Yongxian. In an interview (https://inf.news/entertainment/bd5332246260958e06dc8ead644ec3da.html), he said that in 2015 he had written the script for this prequel as a 60-episode show.

If this had been a tv show – or even a book –, where things could flow in a more friendly pace, this would've been a absolute must watch. Overall, it is a very good movie, and I recommend anyone interested to watch it, even though you'll scratch your head sometimes and may wish to rewind a bit to understand what is happening (though I didn't, and was still able to enjoy it very much).

>La Chinoise not being on the /leftywatchlist/


Everything I know about Soul Plane, I learned from The Boondocks.


Anyone seen L'An 01?

>The film narrates a utopian abandonment, consensual and festive of the market economy and high productivity. The population decides on a number of resolutions, beginning with "Let's stop everything," and the second "After a period of total stoppage, let's bring back — reluctantly — just the services and products we can't do without. Probably : water to drink, electricity for reading at night, the radio to say 'This is not the end of the world, this is Year 1, and now a page of Celestial Mechanics." The implementation of these resolutions is the first day of a new era, Year 1. L'An 01 is emblematic of the challenge of the 1970s and covers such diverse topics as ecology, negation of authority, free love, communal living, rejection of private property and labor.


Have no idea whether to watch the 90s Treasure Island movie first or read the book first
might also watch the 50s version and Muppets version after just out of curiousity

I'm going to make video game
12 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


What's this game about?


I'm still hammering out a lot of broad details with a creative partner

but essentially
there is a man who lost his job at a prestigious university and got divorced because he was caught having an affair with a same-sex student
months later, during a amphetamine/ketamine binge, he discovers an insanely innovative and groundbreaking implementation of CRISPR modification technology
he contacts a student he knew from the university to assist him with his project, and together they each help each other mature and cope in various ways
and they are trying to create solar powered photosynthesis children to sell to infertile lesbian yuppy couples for loads of money


Is this your first time doing a big arts project (not necessarilly a videogame)? Also I'm rooting for your success




Great, good luck anon!
