Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Reading is fun!

    well to be fair I've argued that all there should be is a description of her actions

    and isn't she only in one scene with Kreon?

    she is in at least three scenes that i can think of without referring to the text

    one with ismene, one with kreon, one with the chorus

    and vann you are correct, so the interesting thing is that while antigone was convinced of her rightness and willing to die for it, kreon was not

    making antigone the victor

    but she dies

    yes, but presumably she died doing what was right and will be rewarded in death

    whereas kreon lives but has to suffer for the rest of his life because both his son and his wife committed suicide because of him

    Sorry if old, nothing stood out in the Forum Search.

    Apparently, the Twilight author is so distraught about her early draft of Midnight Sun getting circulated that she hasn't written another word of it!

    "I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun," best selling Meyers wrote on her site.

    "So it is on hold indefinitely."

    She should just do baseball fiction instead now.

    maybe a romantic teen action remake of "Casey at the Bat"

    Right. But hopefully it will just be a little stepping stone for a lot of people that they will look back upon one day and realize it was just some silly teen fun

    Well I have to give her credit, at least when she blatantly cashes in, she's obvious enough about it that only retards wouldn't notice. Oh...

    As a guy who took his internet name from Ender's Game, just read Game and Shadow. The sequels got progressively worse

    I've never even managed to finish a Bean book post-Ender's Shadow

    I crossed the open yard and scaled the face of the house in half a second. Dangling from the eave above the window by one hand, I looked through the glass, and my breath stopped.
    It was her room. I could see her in the one small bed, her covers on the floor and her sheets twisted around her legs. As I watched, she twitched restlessly and threw one arm over her head. She did not sleep soundly, at least not this night. Did she sense the danger near her?

    I was repulsed by myself as I watched her toss again. How was I any better than some sick peeping tom? I wasn't any better. I was much, much worse.

    I tried the window, and it was not locked, though it stuck due to long disuse. I slid it slowly aside, cringing at each faint groan of the metal frame. I would have to find some oil for next time...

    hahaha

    oh man

    The last time I saw her I asked her if she realized the faggot vampire was a creepy stalker fuck and she's like "Yes"

    So at least she's not completely retarded
