    Thank you for your thoughts.

    • Link

      Sure, and sorry for your first negative review. If you want, we could talk more, but if not, you can take that review as aberrant given the 23 other very positive ones and go forth as you were.
      By the way, if i didn't mention it, I did think the book's concept was really good. It was like an old sci-fi epic, but where the focus was on this unusual and tender relationship between two characters who were master and slave. I can't claim I've ever seen anything like that before.

    The permissions were given in the NOTES in another internet page.

    I decided to follow because you are a familiar face and I was hoping to get to know more about you and read your stories. I hope that is okay? I can unwatch if I am making you uncomfortable, sorry.

    • Link

      Ha ha, no, it doesn't make me uncomfortable. I was just curious, was all. Came a bit out of the blue.
      In any case, thanks. Hopefully you enjoy the little I've got uploaded here.

    Greetings! How are you today?

    A question I wanted to address you: Have you by chance read "The Jewish-Japanese Sex and Cook Book and How to Raise Wolves"? by Jack Douglas.
    The way you title your writing tutorials reminded me of this book and I could not help but wonder if you have read it.

    • Link

      No... I've never heard of that. But it sounds strangely fascinating.

  • Link

    Herro! Just joined last night (this morning? lol) Thanks for making such an awesome site! I'm still figuring things out but I like what I see so far ^^ Have a great week!

    • Link

      Well thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying the site. That said, I wouldn't ever say I 'made' this website; I just help keep it clean. :-)

      • Link

        And keeping it clean is half the battle! Good luck and thanks again! <3

  • Link

    Good evening, Frank! Are you planning to write any more stories in the future? I'm really looking forward to that!

    • Link

      Oh! Thanks for your interest. I just recently posted a journal concerning that, but the long and short of it is, I'm currently in the process of finishing a novel I've been writing and editing off and on for something like a decade, and I was going to put off all other creative writing projects until that's done.
      In the meantime, you might check out some other authors on the site, like Poetigress Poetigress, RedSavage RedSavage, SiriusDF SiriusDF, MisterMidnight MisterMidnight, &c.

    <.<
    are you alive?
    are any of the others alive?

    • Link

      Yes, I'm alive. Not sure who you mean by 'any of the others'?

      • Link

        administrators, moderators
        but nevermind now. i solved the issue myself :P

    Astronomy Nerd Extraordinaire? Well, here's something you might be able to use then!
    StarLuminosity/(4*πDistance²)=Watts/Distance²
    E.G. Sol, or, our Star.
    3.83E+26/(4
    π*149,598,022,991²)=1361.87W/m²
    EarthSun/(4*Pi*EarthDistanceMeters^2)=Watts/meter squared

    Enjoy! This lets you calculate the solar constant of any star in the universe so long as you know it's luminosity and can pick a distance from the star to calculate. I made some more automated thing for this before using smallest known and largest known stars.

    • Link

      3.83E+26/(4*π*149,598,022,991²)=
      Sorry, I noticed a typo in two areas where I forgot a *. :P

      • Link

        It's the 'as long as you know its luminosity and distance' part that gets every astronomer.

        • Link

          You only need to know luminosity. If you know that, you pick a distance, and then you can get it's solar constant for that distance. The closer you are, the more energy you could theoretically get.

  • Link

    Bonjour! Do you have STEAM and play games much? :D

    • Link

      Not much, I'm afraid. I've been a console gamer since the NES days.

  • Link

    We're here! :D

    • Link

      Ha ha.. I guess so! Thanks for giving my hoity-toity unauthorized advice columns an added viewing platform.

  • Link

    I like your fursona man. I especially dig his long hair and clothing choice~

    • Link

      Ha ha... thanks. Honestly, I think it'd be great if people started dressing again like how they did back in the 20's and 30's, maybe with a bit of an updated look. It just looks so snappy.

      • Link

        The world would be a more suave place, to be sure. I wouldn't complain, although I'm partial to the hippie gear of the 60's and 70's, tie dye and cardigans and whatnot~

  • Link

    You're welcome!

  • Link

    I would just like to say that I adore your writing tip/cookbook submissions, because it combines two of my favorite things awesomely, and that I want to favorite them all at once but think that it would be somehow uncouth because I am irrational, so I'm going to throw up a shout instead and go back to hiding :3

    • Link

      Oh, well thank you very much. I'm glad you're enjoying them. I will, of course, be posting more as time goes by.

  • Link

    Absolutely adore your writing!

    • Link

      Aw, well thanks. That's very kind of you.

  • Link

    Yupyup! I've been busy tons, but I still breathe and write. :D

  • Link

    So question? What's the best way to post stories to Weasyl cleanly, without it breaking up the words in odd places? Still trying to figure out the formatting.

    • Link

      Oh, geez, sorry. I missed this.

      Honestly, probably the way you've been doing it, via PDF files, or else do it through Google Docs. The other option is Markdown, of course, but this is essentially just to make it look like how forum posts do, so the formatting capabilities are limited.
      A lot of folks have been asking for other file formats, of course, but I think part of the problem is that, unlike with images (which have only three file types that are widely used), written documents come in about 9 million different varieties (.txt, .rtf, .doc, .docx, .odt, .dvi, .pdf, .html, and so on and so forth), and I guess everyone has his or her own favorite. Plus, a lot of times the more widely used ones are the Windows ones (.doc and .docx), which come with this giant header file or whatever that has all sorts of hidden information about the document in it that makes it incredibly difficult to parse effectively for a website (so the output ends up having all these mysterious symbols or strange formattings or whatever floating around everywhere). So for now we've got those three options.

      • Link

        No worries. I tried a few different things and PDF seemed to work best. Was curious if there was something I might've missed.

  • Link

    Hey, just wanted to let you know you're a huge inspiration for me as a writer and I loved the talks we had on the subject, and I'm hoping you feel better since what happened.

    • Link

      You're a sweetheart, Tybby. Just so you know, our discussions and your works, I think, have given me a broader perspective on writing as a craft, so in that way you're an inspiration to me as well.

      • Link

        <3
        I know I bother you about this a lot but if there's any modes of communication you'd like to add me on I'd absolutely love to small-talk with you on like a daily basis :3

        • Link

          You know, I really just use instant messaging and such things for business purposes only, I'm afraid. Mostly it's just because when I'm home after work and I want to do some writing or artwork or whatever, I like to focus on that and so don't want too many distractions. My brain can't handle multi-tasking.

  • Link

    Why thank you! So do you.

  • Link

    Long time no see. So this is where your newer tales now reside.

    • Link

      Yep. The fact that you can include titlepage art here, as well as the option to make nice-looking and nicely-formatted documents viewable in the browser, makes this preferential for writing.

  • Link

    Which reminds me, I read your journal and I'm seriously looking forward to some of your essays.

  • Link

    I'm following to be supportive! I bet you'll do a perfectly fine job over here! (Also your rats look all kinds of awesome)

  • Link

    I plan to in time. I've just been slowing down with everything in general.

    • Link

      Haven't we all been. Though I hope to speed back up after this semester's over. Last semester of classes EVER.

      • Link

        Good on you. Once classes are done, where do you go from there?

        • Link

          PhD thesis work for the next four years! Then after that I can get an actual job. But working on a thesis is basically just working anyway. I figure if I can't figure out how to squeeze writing and reading into my days while I'm working on a thesis, tough luck squeezing it in any time after that.

  • Link

    Or you could just ignore me :c

    Frank where did you go ;~;

  • Link

    i em ur biggest fan

    i follow u... until u luf me!!!!!

  • Link

    Holy shit it's you

    Hey do you remember me <3

    • Link

      I do! Weren't we supposed to collaborate on something?

      • Link

        !

        I can remember saying that but now I can't remember what I wanted to work on you with o:

        • Link

          You never got around to telling me, actually. I don't think you had an actual idea formulated yet.

          • Link

            I shall think of something then |3
