Re: On Phonaesthetics and Euphony in Fantasy Writing

Buttercup. I like the sound of it.

Buttercup.

Quaint. Hints of brightness. Diminutive.

Tolkien uses Attercop in The Hobbit. Remember that poem? Bilbo's mocking the spiders. Attercop makes them sound more diminutive. "You don't scare me. You don't see me, you little attercops."

Re: On Phonaesthetics and Euphony in Fantasy Writing

This here's my jam; one of the things I see taught to writers is evoking the feeling of the subject written: The splashing waves crashed against the rocks, droplets of salty water pelting Danny as he stood by the tidepool. The drones of the tremendous mechanized legs sent an echoing groan across the...

Re: Fantasy Music Playlists to Chill Out To

Music thread? Love me a music thread! "Relaxing Narnia Music" -- You have to hand it to Harry Gregson-Williams: the man is one of the best composers in the business. He's made some of the most iconic scores in Hollywood, and this is no exception. The Narnia music is lovely, and perfectly suited to f...

Re: Third Time's the Most Charming and Urbane

Perhaps it's less a matter of time and more one of place, no? Some for brief encounters, others for deeper thought (unbound by temporality, to close this loop). At the very least, forums often make for venerable treasure troves - ruins of communities - for others to navigate. Archive archaeology ac...

Third Time's the Most Charming and Urbane

Oh, fancy this. Fancy that. A forum. Another forum. Once rampant and multitudinous, now a dying breed in these latter Twenty-tens filled with discord and tweetings and instantly gramming and your "hilarious" aunt's book of faces—so nostalgic. So precious. Mayhaps we'll give this specimen some vivaci...
