A plea from the true Scytale...

Postby True Scytale » 05 Aug 2008 05:19

Greetings, servants of Shaitan!

Having survived misquotes, Atreides propaganda, machinations of the God emperor, repeated character assassination, a lot of bad powindah food and general degradation, I have finally decided to emerge from my righteous indignation and set the record straight. 5,000 years of strugging against the encroachments of the infidel, and in particular the blandishments of those Bene Gesserit witches, have left me in need of telling the full story of my life and you can now read my memoirs at:

Stay Pure and see you in kehl!
Dear Heathen,

Despite the current genetic stasis of the Tleilaxu Communion we need fanatics and all willing to be ruthlessly cleansed and made into Face Dancers are welcome to join! If you are Pure...

Hiya.

Looks like you found the right forum this time. ;)
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

Welcome! Is it correct that I read your story "I, Scytale" about two years ago? If so, I was very impressed by its quality.

I also have the story, but have only read a bit of it. ;)

Well, moshi moshi is the telephone only greeting in Japan and I thought it would be funny if I used it's origin as a greeting for this introduction thread. Like I said, I'm simply running out of ways to creatively say "hello" :)

:lol:

Kinda figured it was something like that.

It unfortunately sets up someone who understands it with an expectation that something momentous is about to be conveyed...and then....Phlthp. Almost like when, in a samurai movie, on a battlefield, a messenger comes running up and prostrates himself before his lord and breathlessly announces he bears an important message.

And then dies before he can relate it. :D

(Of course, in that situation, the messenger would usually have said Moushi-agemasu! Much more deferential. ;) )

Hi Scytale, loved the story.

Now please don't take offence at this, but if you can write fan-fiction like that, then why can't two "professional" writers come up with with books continuing the series which are even half as good at least?

sorry for the rant at the hacks twain, welcome to Jacurutu!
