      Here's a link to a site that provides all of H.P. Lovecraft's stories, so you can check them out and see if like them. Not my cup of tea, I have to admit, but you may find them more agreeable.:D

      There seems to be an inverted snobbery at work amongst some critics and readers: if an author doesn't fill his books with rapes, murders and bad language he is regarded as somehow less 'adult' than those that do, whereas I would argue the complete opposite. It shows a distinct lack of maturity if your only way of gaining a readership is by resorting to shock tactics or appealing to the lowest common denominator. Still, it would be a boring world if everyone had the same tastes (at least, that's what I try to convince myself when I'm wading through a turgid pile of nonsense labelled the 'next big thing'.):D

      I couldn't agree more. I enjoy Eddings. I think he's got a fluid writing style and a deft touch with plotting. As for depth, some people confuse unpleasant characters with complex ones. Just because a character doesn't go around murdering people doesn't mean he/she lacks complexity, just that the author doesn't feel the need to explore the more unpleasant side of human behaviour. Nothing wrong with that; it makes a pleasant change.

      (I decided to answer your question here as it is somewhat off-topic and we might be accused of spamming.)>.<

      The reason some people dislike Tolkien, in my opinion, is because we live in a cynical world. Many regard the protagonists in the Lord of the Rings as unrealistic; they feel Frodo and Sam and Gandalf et al are too noble, too one-dimensional. What they fail to take into account, I feel, is that Tolkien was born in 1892. He was born into a world where men were expected to be gentlemen, to act with honour. He therefore imbued his characters with these same traits. Personally, though I'm as cynical as the next man, I find it refreshing to read a book where the characters embody all that is noble about the human spirit. That's why I'll always defend the Lord of the Rings against its detractors.:)

      Thank for the link. I'll go look at it once I get some time (read: a week or two).
      Also, 300 is a fantastical account of the battle of Thermopylae. Don't take it as historically accurate, because it was never meant to be.

      Your welcome. I myself write fantasy and some horror. I'd like to read some of your stuff.

      Also, Tyler Bates works with Zack Snyder alot so, Dawn of the Dead (2004), 300, Watchmen. He's also done the Day of the Dead remake and The Day the Earth Stood Still remake. Not very memorable movies save the Zack Snyder work, but I have enjoyed the music, especially 300.

      well every now and then there are new rpg's that pop up, these are common and there are a lot of new, different, ones. Whenever you see those just ask to be part of that Rp. Those things you are talking about are ranks, you go up in rank every time you get a certian number of posts. There are also those green and red bubble things are how people think of the posts you make, but just because people have red bubbles doesn't mean they are bad people. Some poeple already had the max number of green bubbles so they want the ma number of red :p

    I'm Jolene, I'm first and foremost a nerd, I love science fiction and fantasy, books, movies, and battle/viking metal. General concensus is that I'm weird. I love metaphysics and philosophy, symbols and maths/science. Ask me to know more.

    Reading, writing, studying, listening to music and watching films, thinking, talking to my Leminkainen, creating.
