PostSubject: Well hi there!   Tue Apr 12, 2011 6:35 am

So I guess I've been meaning to join this forum for a while. I've hung about on the Terry Goodkind forum long enough to have been made aware of the WBG...

... and there's also the little matter of San Diego last summer which was a blast with B, P, S, Au & Al (not sure what the deal is with real names here...) *waves to people* I'm going to have to figure out your screen names all over again on here but you know who you are HAHA!

For all those who have no idea what I'm rambling about... hi! I'm in my early 20s, studying for a masters in archaeological computing at university in good old England. I'm fairly energetic... I do a martial art, surf and now ballet, so a good mix of sports. I love reading and I'm a bit of a chocoholic.

I used to write a lot of little short stories when I was a kid. This developed into telling my young cousins stories based on their favourite tv show characters, which then evolved to *whispers* fanfiction. Geeky I know but I found fanfictions to be a brilliant writing exercise - you already have characters, setting, certain elements that have to be kept but, especially with children's tv, you can then develop them far further than what the "real life" stuff would be able to do. All a bit of fun. I won't be inflicting any of those on anyone here though :-)

In the last few years writing has fallen to the way-side as I have life, job, university etc. etc. to deal with. Am trying to pick it up again now though so hopefully hanging around on here will give me the kick up the behind I need!

So yeah... as we say in England, 'ow do?

For the most part if we know real names, we use them, though DuDZie's still DuDZie to me and I get a kick out of people calling me rainshadow. Also, I'll probably continue to call you FC unless you say different. After that we really don't have any set rules so unless someone says otherwise (and assuming you know their real name) you're free to use them.

My view of FF is pretty much the same as yours. There are times when I get into a funk and when that happens sometimes having all the characters and rules of the world in place for me it's easier to climb out of a hole.

Nice to see you on! I recall trying to recruit you a few times and I'm sure the others have dropped you off a hint here and there... nice to see you finally succumb to the Dark Side.

Yeah, that's the one. That Viking-loving Canadian of many names.

Welcome to the nut house--I mean Guild!

In my experience people who think fanfiction is all bad haven't been reading the right fanfics. Yeah, there are lots of poor ones, but then there are others that are as good or better than the original works. Plus fanfiction is fun Very Happy

Two of the most popular novel franchises of all time are fanfic: Star Trek and Star Wars.

I could also argue that Branden Sanderson, being a big Robert Jordan fan, is himself authoring some pretty popular fanfic as we speak.

Hello! Yes, definitely some familiar names on here HAHA! How you all doing?

I can't promise I'll be around on here too much (am meant to be learning computer-y stuff at the moment as have somehow managed to pick two of the most difficult projects I could possibly doing for my 3d graphics archaeology stuff and tracking down the right information has been 'tricky'. Bloody Titanic ><) but I shall definitely stick my nose in occasionally!

Also, I might be cheeky and stick up some of my photography stuff once I've sorted through various bits and pieces. My friend has been lending me his gorgeous digital SLR so I've been playing HAHA!

Welcome!! I tried to welcome you earlier but my post didn't go through :'( I'm happy you're here! And I will definitely read any fanfics you post, if you post any. I love fanfics, although I haven't actually looked at the fanfic section here yet. *mosies off to read the fanfic section*

Thanks guys. Yay more familiar names :-)

Carnage - it's not the boats I'm worried about with the Titanic ;-)

Fog - I'm using AutoCAD for one 3d project (a scale model of one of the telegraphs from the Titanic) and 3ds Max for the other (a reconstruction of the Roman fort of Babylon in Cairo).

RainCloud - Thank you. As I said, I probably won't post any fanfics here but if you are really interested pm me and I can send you a link to them.
