    “And fiction gives us empathy: it puts us inside the minds of other people, gives us the gift of seeing the world through their eyes. Fiction is a lie that tells us true things, over and over.”

    -Neil Gaiman (Fahrenheit 451 introduction)

    Some of us inhabit every thread…and the fanfic was a great story that needs very little Star Wars background to understand.

    We do try to keep this particular thread on-topic, however, so that it’s easier to find what people are promoting. Otherwise, it might turn into this thread:

    I’m going to go against what I wrote in that last post and go off-topic, risking the future of this thread. SPOILER ALERT: don’t read this unless you’ve already read Shay’s fanfic.

    In Shay’s blog post about the importance of fiction, there was a reason that wasn’t specifically mentioned that I found out about today, when I shared her fanfic story with a non-native English speaker who was a friend of mine. After reading the story, the friend commented on how sad of a story it was, in that a character died. I then had the opportunity to explain that when “a fever breaks”, it means the fever’s over and the body is healthy again, not that the fever overwhelmed the body to the point of death. Consequently, I learned that fiction is a good way to learn about how a language works, with its idioms and quirks, in a medium where there aren’t real life-and-death consequences.

    I thought was appropriate…it is content, even though it’s not video content…

    Here’s a segment from the conversation that I had with Corban Garcia for the greatest fancast of all time. This particular clip was not in the fancast itself.

    Is it bad that when I glanced at “fancast” I thought it said “fascist”

    #42793

    Josiah that’s horrible. You are a terrible person.

    Most of you have probably already seen this by now, but here’s my most recent podcast episode. It’s a “review” of Solo: A Star Wars Story from myself and my good friend/fellow writer on The Elven Padawan, Audrey.

    Another podcast episode: this one is a discussion about the Marvel Cinematic Universe (excluding the shows) this far. Not really a professional critique of the films or anything like that, basically just an excuse to talk about Marvel after I finally got to see Infinity War. 😁

    I used the character “Kevin” from the fancast to help me give a less-than-perfect product review:

    I made this in recognition of my Internet Friends, derived from a song by Mr. Rogers.
