They also had no idea what the holiday or even the elements of culture they were trying to portray was for, given their plans for the initial theme.

Depending on how you define "crude" you'd likely enjoy my works.

I've always had a slight annoyance toward works that read like Tolkien's. I love LoTR and things associated with it, so that's not a shot at him, but works since his. A lot of fantasy writers really took the "fancy high english" thing and ran with it. Focusing more on making their words sound pretty and high class, and showing off that they have access to a thesaurus.


I prefer my characters to talk like actual people, not failed thespians in a theater group.

Depends on how good I think you are at writing characters and stories.

I myself am a writer, but I think I kind of suck.

I'm just creating short stories at the moment, but I do plan to write a novel series sometime later this year possibly. If I'm being honest my novel probably will suck though.

Damn. Falcon and Winter Soldier's last episode was spectacular. Disappointed it was only 6 episodes long, but man it was good.

The way the joke would work in animated form would be to change the comic artist into an animator.

"Actually a lot of times we just use two to three mouth patterns over and over to convey that the character is speaking. Sometimes we just don't animate at all. It's good for dramatic pauses and when stuff is just staying still."

cut to the guy staying still without animation for ten seconds, only to have his mouth move in two or three patterns.

"Isn't it kinda cheap?"

cut to the artist staying still without animation for ten seconds, only to have his mouth move in two or three patterns.

"Not really."

From TV Tropes, the full inscription is this:

"Isaiah Bradley is an American hero whose name went unknown for too long.
Isaiah was one of a dozen African-American soldiers who were recruited against their will and without their consent for participation in human testing in pursuit of the super soldier serum. Most did not survive. The few who lived through testing were sent on secret missions during the Korean War. During the conflict, against all odds, Isaiah Bradley rescued his fellow soldiers and 28 other POWs from behind enemy lines.
However, fearful of the ramifications of a black super soldier, some individuals within the government tried to erase Isaiah's story from history. His family was issued a falsified death certificate. And for decades, the truth of his unflinching bravery was buried."

The delineation between "hard" and "soft" scifi is not a very useful one. Especially when stuff like Trek is considered "hard", or at the very least on the harder end.


It's still a universe where telepathy exists, beings like Q weild space magic levels of power, and shit like the Pah Wraiths are running around.

You can explain away Q and the Wormhole Aliens with all the science talk you want, it's still space magic. No different than explaining Jedi with mediclorians or Pskyers as having a connection to The Warp.

It's all space magic in the end.

I never see Star Trek cited as an example of hard sci-fi. In fact, that's usually cited as an example of soft sci-fi.

The one thing you can't argue against about The Last Jedi is that the Heavy Bomber Ships were utterly stupid.

What the hell were the Resistance thinking using these atrocities?



Whatever happened to these perfectly functioning ships?
