    You didn't say harder, you said impossible. Killing off characters in no way makes continuing the story impossible.

    My exact quote was,
    "Don't kill off everyone. Don't try and make it impossible for anyone to resume the story. Lets just add parts to the story which are not trying to end the story."

    The key to that is "Don't TRY and make it impossible."
    See I never said it was impossible. I said don't strive to make it impossible.

    Hmm...can we please try to keep the major twists to an infrequent minimum? I know it's not a rule or anything, but it's kind of annoying for those of us who'd like the story to make some kind of sense. And be somewhat enjoyable to read. If people could try being more adaptive and cooperative rather than re-molding the whole story to their fancy, that would be nice.

    I know what your saying Terr.
    But really, the story is going in a hundred directions and no ones versions are connecting.

    I hope that with the schizophrenia twist, the stories can connect on better levels.

    I mean one person is talking about Ducky II...another is talking about a fugitive in a mechanic shop...another about a wiseman.....another about a dead robot........another about a schizophrenic fisherman. Things are going crazy.

    But I sort of like it.

    The schizophrenia twist also explains all the contradictions and strange turns of the story. The guy is insane. We don't know whether to trust him or not. If it were told in first person then this would be an unreliable narrator. He does not know what to think at this point in the story.

    For the record Seldon:

    YOU ARE= you're
    your=belonging to you

    Also, what in the world possessed you to put a comma in this sentence?

    I hope the schizophrenia twist can bring the stories, more together

    Much more than killing off main characters, it's the impenetrable grammar and syntax of some of the entries that make it near impossible for me to follow.

    And please note that in the entry where I killed Ducky and Robot Ally I was simply reacting appropriately to what happened in the previous entry. Terr has the robot go out the window. Well guess what, everybody. When you open a hole to the vacuum of space, bad stuff happens. I didn't pull it out of my hat. It was a logical progression of what came before me. (I even incorporated French!) I'm very sorry if many of the rest of you are seemingly incapable of adjusting to the conditions established in the story.

    I got over the Duck being dead this morning. My new thing now is the fact of it just being all part of some mental problem. I thought the point of this was for us to have the Duck save the universe and create something out of it. Not get it to be about a crazy fisherman. Its just way to confusing at this point. I think we need some intervention to let us know exactly whats going on. Because this arguing back and forth is not going to work.

    The point is to tell a story.

    I understand what you're saying Rhett.

    Okay, can I ask for a HUGE favor? Can you please write what you have first in Word or some similar program, and run the grammar/spell checker? Because some of the grammar and spelling mistakes that we're getting are seriously distracting.

    I have notice quite a few contradictions within the story.

    The setting of the wise man as well as the mental hospital is China. It has been that since the beginning.

    If your writing about the space adventure, the robot is now Mally and the character is Ducky II. Ally was killed earlier on in the story but people are still talking about him.

    Now some of the characters I made up were,
    Lord MalalaGorge who is the new ruler of the empire.
    Doctor Chensten is the man who is taking care of the fisherman at the hospital.

    I just thought I would clear those things up. A lot of characters names change and it seems like some people may be confused about the setting. That is distracting to me.

    We might have a better idea if your posts were written in the kind of english that people can understand.

    So do you take pleasure in announcing other people's faults? Is that fun for you?

    I just want this said on my behalf, I unlike you don't have the time to correct my posts go through edit what not. I normally however on posts that require alot of writing and thought out process I do in word to check my spelling and grammer. I will be the first person to tell you I speak better then I write.

    But I was on vacation last week and I could care less if you could understand my posts. If you're a grammer expert it shouldn't of been to hard for you to read thru and correct as you went along. But alas thats a book closed and done away with.
