Week 3 - Scenario

You finally make it out of that room and back into the conference hall, only to be greeted by people rushing about, shouting loudly. You look around trying to find someone to ask about what is going on, when there's a momentary gap in crowd and you catch sight of a news presenter being broadcasted o...

Re: NaNoWriMo

Unfortunately I won't be participating this year, but I really enjoyed last year's one. I managed about 12k words in the end and absolutely loved the camaraderie at the write-ins. For anyone thinking of participating, I'd definitely recommend giving it a go. You might end up surprising yourself.

Re: St Mungo's

Thanks for all the good wishes! :wub:

The surgery was a success, thankfully. I'm finding it difficult to concentrate amidst the pain so I'll only be checking in briefly now and then.

St Mungo's

I'll be having surgery tomorrow and I will be taking a break from HOL while I recover both in hospital and at home. I should be back in a week or thereabouts, but it may take me a while to get back into the swing of things. In the meantime if you have any questions or concerns about the following, p...

Re: What movie coming in out in 2018 are you most excited for?

I saw the trailer of Mortal Engines earlier, and it looks really intriguing. London is a city that's special to me in a lot of ways, and I'm always fascinated by different conceptualisations of it. Based on the trailer, it seems like there's a lot going on in the movie, so I'll probably try read the...

Re: Gathering and Games

Due to an unexpected sighting of the Crumple-Horned Snorcack, which we need to investigate further, we'll be rescheduling Gathering and Games to October. We'll announce a new date closer to the time.

Mobile and Tablet Games

I don't often play mobile or tablet games, but there are a few I've enjoyed, most notably Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and Years 5-7 (both on iPad). I recently got into a puzzly game on mobile called I Love Hue , which involves arranging different coloured tiles into a spectrum. I find it can be rat...

Re: Mass Effect

I'm a little further into the original game since I last posted, having completed one or two of the first main quests (depending on one's perspective). I've enjoyed exploring the other planets while completing the various side-quests. I really like how each has a different landscape and there's desc...

September Prompt: Word Creatures

As readers, we're constantly surrounded by words, letters, characters and punctuation. In some stories, such as Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next series or Scott Lynch's novella In the Stacks , there are creatures that are the embodiment of words or interact with words in some way, that ultimately intro...

Mass Effect

A fellow HOLer recommended Mass Effect to me and so far I'm loving it. This took me somewhat by surprise as this is the first proper science fiction video game I've played (I tend to prefer RPGs with fantasy elements). I'm still in the early stages of the game, but the storyline and the world-buildi...
