Idle Fiction Jam - Rumours and Hearsay

Recommended Posts

So, coming back to this after 2 years feels appropriate.


I've been working on a piece called 'Dance of the Loot Goblin' which is about a video games tournament and also 'In my head I was degrading' which I won't say too much but I need to do a bunch of work around understanding Buddhism's perspective on the afterlife and how scholars might feel about the aftelife and afterdeath.


I know this thread died but I was really enjoying it.

Cool little slice of life story. I like the way the title interacts with the ending. Also the toys for bob/skylanders connection is amusing.


I'd say it could do with an editing pass. Especially jarring to me are sentences like the following, which to me read like the comma should be a period:


Gareth spent over an hour getting destroyed over and over, he had even taken a time out to realign his team and tweak their gear and still made no difference.

You're absolutely right.


Yeah, I did a light sweep but not enough.


Glad you liked the THQ/Toys for Bob mash up.


Also, this story is actually loosely based on a true story about a Pokemon tournament that an old co-worker went to, where she actually did that.
