I kind of wish my legacy would be my characters executing the classic:

1. Discover interesting thing

2. ?????

3. Profit!

Maybe I should work on it.

I'll always have a soft spot for the first arc of Effulgence. I love Alice and jokers in general. I remember being... just so amazed when I found it. I couldn't believe something like it existed. I then preceded to binge read until Shell Bell died after which I recoiled in horror and ran away for a while.

My other favorite Effulgence arcs are probably Narnia, Young Wizards, Loki and the magical world where science is dangerous.

I don't think I could choose favorite sandboxes. There are too many great ones.
I really enjoyed Ari and Promise. More recently, vampire Sadde and Cam in wormverse with Nemo were great.

I'm going to close this and immediately think of half a dozen I should have added.

Oh man, picking things is hard. Ummm. Effulgence is in full generality tear-inducingly delicious. Favorite world is definitely Chronicle. Favorite plots are many and varied and I'm presently too lazy to spoiler box things separately so:
Effulgence spoilers
  • Shell Bell taking over the Capitol
  • Shell Bell and Sherlock being Actually the Cutest
  • Shell being rescued from Downside (okay so I like Shell Bell a lot)
  • Juliet getting together with Minus
  • Angela finding out about Jovah
  • Aegis and Sue meeting the buggers
  • Pattern and Ripper being Also Very Cute
  • Aether as grumbling and reluctant shrink
  • Harley in Gift
  • Most of T'mir's shenanigans
  • Rapunzel realizing she's a princess
  • Finding the Quinn primes
  • Poor traumatized Butterfly
  • Probably more things I'm failing to remember presently.


I'll do a separate post for non-Effulgence later when my brain is braining better.

I am Pleasantly Surprised that I'm actually making people's lists! This was not exactly an expected thing?

Hmm, as for my favourites:

- Aestrix's Yvettes are excellent and excellent and also excellent
- Aestrix is Too Good At Worldbuilding
- We need more scheming Nemo characters in this world
- Mileses are pretty excellent
- We need more Whateley
- Alicorn's absurd all-devouring tag rate is a wonder to behold
- Ari is a treasure

It's true, I'm like, "Okay gonna read this thing while tagging." and then it goes

Tag! Tag! Ooh ti- Tag! Tag! Tag! Tag! Okay now I- Tag!

I’ve even noticed this just from reading. Usually when I am reading a current Alicorn box, either there are no updates when I hit refresh, or there has been am update Alicorn has already responded to.

I like to think I tag fairly quick, when I'm not doing anything else, but I still got nothing on Alicorn.

I seem to tag decently quickly? (At least I think so.) I'm pretty sure I'm quicker now that I've developed my character(s) a bit more, but I don't have that many tags going.

Unless something complicated is going on I tag roughly as fast as I can type and last time I measured my typing speed it was something over 100 WPM.

Sometimes I will be ahead of five people in eight threads at the same time and go "I'M BORED TAG FASTER".
