Evening folks,

I had intended to have an April Fools chapter ready for my stories but it seems like that sadly isn't going to happen.  Work is slow but steady on the real chapters for both Mente Materia and Brightest Spark, though if I'm totally honest a recent revelation has made me direct some more attention towards Brightest Spark.

That's Cayde-6, the Hunter representative for the Vanguard.  He's going to be showing up in the next chapter of Brightest Spark.  It's going to be awesome.

A quick and handy guide to commenting on my stories!

The guidelines to good commenting!

1.) Be polite -- I understand that discussions can sometimes get heated, and I will let these discussions resolve themselves so long as everyone keeps their flamethrowers on the British setting. Hyperbole is about the most I will tolerate.  Posting in such a way as to anger or incite another reader (or myself) will warrant intervention.

2.) Respond to the subject at hand -- If a comment is left on a Mente Materia chapter, I hope it is related to what happened in that chapter or to the story as a whole. Occasional questions or comments may be acceptable so long as they aren't drug out into multi-comment discussions that are not related to the medium that the comments are being posted to.

3.) If the first rule cannot be followed in the comments, I will ask you to move it to private messages or user page comments.  If the second cannot be followed, I will ask you to move it to the Stardust forums, private messages or user pages.

I suppose the first and last guideline you can follow is this: If your comment isn't something you would want on your page, or isn't one you would want directed at you, don't post it.


If you send me a message and I don't respond, it isn't because I haven't read the message or that I deleted it without even looking.  I often check my messages at work but I can't actually reply to them until I get home.  And by then I've forgotten. :S

Believe me. He knows.

Hey, Arad. Not sure how up-to-date you are on XCOM 2, but Long War 2 is out.

It looks very promising, and something worth checking out.

#214 · 19w, 1d ago · · ·

So sorry to hear about your cat.  I lost my cat of 25 years recently and know that it hurts.  I wish your cat the best for what time they have left and know they were happy to have been your loving pet and for all the time you two spent together.  Take care and best of luck to you.
