Just realised what the joke is in the name of Snowdin Town.

I love the fake names for things people make up for examples in arguments. Also, metasyntactic variables!

Another thing that is frankly awesome — epigraphs taken from fictional media the author made up for the work.

:D /Floornight/ understands that in 'they're doing typical oppressive stuff, but they're eldritch' the 'eldritch' bit is the /positive/ one.

I /really, really/ disike what this one author does when he describes 'weird, slimy, alien' and means 'disgusting' instead of 'interesting!'

The best thing that ever happens in stories is when they show you a world where the inciting incident never happened.

They're bombing Rafah now. What gets described as 'last civilian safe zone' and 'last bastion of Hamas' are the exact same cities. God fuck.

What's the difference between someone pretending to be you who /isn't/ you, and someone pretending to be you who /is/ you?

Has a sort of grunge aesthetic, but the original novel is so much more cold and vivid. Love how it plays with cameras and viewpoints, though

Is there such a thing as 'method writing'? Putting yourself in a mindset of a character so you can understand what their dialogue looks like

Bacon isn't inherently hedonist, and necktie isn't inherently anti-hedonist. You /can/ have a necktie hedonism. (That's me!) And vice versa.

It's the no-internet-dinosaur's birthday!

It's like collecting stationery, but collecting /affects/. Look at this — I can use it to create stuff! Not always interesting stuff, though

Part of a book you've read cover-to-cover, but from a book you've read only a few pages of; an extrapolation you had and can't touch anymore

The idea of you will save your life too, but it will also kill you, because in order to become you, you need to stop being you

Do you ever get semantic satiation for your own name?
