Re: Inner Bruise -- a science-fiction collabfic

Re-listening to this song which I included in my previous post Sweet Thing/Candidate - Bowie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrfc8c6VkTA BTW, 'Inner Bruise' sounds a lot like an American Urban novel title. Sweet Things … how about that for a title? At once gives the image of tenage innocence, and h...

And the Ottermen may grow forests of coconut palms on riverine/lacustrine chinampa-style islets, to feed casts of Robber Crabs https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_crab whose flesh is said to be imbued with the spirits of dead ancestral ottermen....

Re: taking over done ideas and making them interesting

SInce the riverine/aquatic habits of the Ottermen would be in fuller force, maybe make them have the dragon tattoos, and be able to megazord (or whatever you call it) into a Chinese-style water dragon. They can fly, can't they? They just sort of serpentine thru the clouds, like Falcor the Dogfaced, ...

Re: taking over done ideas and making them interesting

So if you had an idea that’s been done before, how did you execute it differently? I do not think that IMO the Ottermen versus the Streak of Rakshasa (sorry, old habits die hard) has not been so done, and if it has, I ain't seen it none. Bring on the Ottermen versus the Streek of Rakhsasha (avoidin...

Re: Inner Bruise -- a science-fiction collabfic

So, lemme get this straight: Big Pharma + Gov't are in some kind of collusion, with the Gov't having blanket emancipated pre-18 yr olds, in order that Pharma be allowed to experiment on them using cutting edge (and potentially hazardous) new techonologies/treatements w/o parental consent (?)

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

^I ended up enjoying Season 2 more than the 1st. [:)] What I'm listening to: This Welsh song, "Dacw Nghariad". I don't think I realized just how beautiful Welsh was until now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nrkgdj0bVAo Welsh is lovely indeed! Some of the finest voices in the world were & are Welsh.

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Great question about final consonant cluster limits. Whereas Kartvelian, Slavic and Armenian can have some initial octopedalian consonantal whoppers in initial position, I am not sure if they can allow as huge a consonant cluster in coda position. :wat: :?: :?: And what of this: :wikip: Some Salisha...
