The Inkilians Thread
« on: November 04, 2013, 03:12:00 PM »
So named for the literary discussion group to which J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis belonged (minus the specifically Christian part :P )

I thought it'd be nice to have a thread for the authors/writers/poets/songwriters of Exilian to post and share ideas and inspiration, if they wanted to, and for anyone to read and comment on those ideas. :)

Anything, whether plot ideas, snippets of writing, or whole chapters are welcome, if people want to share them and would like opinions! :) (Though the whole chapters would probably like their own thread :P )

Can we be the Inkilians instead?  :P

Well, I'm currently working on a short story which came to mind when I was talking to someone who writes for a student newspaper - it's a very short piece of science fiction, of the slightly creepy subverting-expectations variety.

I'm writing quite a bit more than I have done for a while at the moment. :)

I like Inkilians :D

Ooh, sounds interesting :) Will we be seeing some of it when it's done? :P

I'm currently trying to piece together a post-apocalyptic Steampunk- esque story, for which the ideas popped into my head while I was washing my hair (as they do). It's working out where it's going though xD

I have this idea for a cool steampunky world thing with no actual plot or anything, but then the World Building Class stopped, so I started waiting for the next one :P

Edit: Just out of curiosity, what was the original name of this thread?
Alcohol and Calculus don't mix. Never Drink and Derive.

I am Othko, the master of the 23 techniques of death, murder of the 8 popes, victor of the never ending war, he who fell from the highest of places, second of his cloning, most noble swords-bearer, Ninety-Seventh of His Name, Lord of That Bit Between High Places and Low Places Through Which One Falls In Transit Between them! Apparently, at any rate.

This was originally the Inklings thread, now the Inkilians thread :P

I will get back to the class eventually. I am a bad teacher. :/

Ah, makes sense now :P And I can see why, I'm bogged down with coursework at the moment (obviously being in Wales without much electronic access didn't help :P), it must be hell at Cambridge :/

Off Topic, but also could we get an actual emoticon for :/ It just looks dodgy when we have them for all the other faces  ;D

Well there's this one. ??? But the question mark ruins it a bit.
Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

I feel this should be pinned. Pinned!

I finally wrote out the plot of a sci-fi story I've been planning recently. No time to write it, sadly. :/ The characters are pretty fun though.

Thinking of writing a sort of 'Skyrim Tale' for my current character, for Stories/AAR's? :)
