Q: Fantasy book featuring faerie folk hiding in 'modern times'

Danny3414I read this in very early seventies - can't remember if paperback etc. Could have been YA. It's set in southern England, at some place where Downs country meets marshland. There are two types of 'little people' who live in hiding (at one point a full grown one was compared in height to a schoolg...

Q: Identifying a SF anthology

BroklyniteThis was one of my father’s old books that I read twenty or more years ago. He had bought it in a barn somewhere in the back country where the owner was just trying to make a couple of bucks. My father only had a quarter, enough to buy this book. When he came back the following weekend with money...

Q: Looking for a 90s show about a boy and a dimension hopping dinosaur

MonkeyMagicManOk so it's NOT Denver the Dinosaur I know that much. All I remember is he could open portals to other dimensions/times? and kept showing up at the worst times and the kid was always keeping him hidden from his parents. I think he had blonde hair and I remember the animation looked fairly good fo...

Q: What is the nature of the voices?

AdamantIn The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza, the eponymous protagonist hears voices that tell her how to use her powers. Not much information is given about the voices, but they seem to have certain characteristics: they have a sense of humor, are familiar with popular culture, and some of them might be...

Q: Who is the person Elena meets at the hospital?

AdamantAt one point in The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza, when Elena visits a hospital to heal someone, she meets someone who seems to know a bit more than he's telling (highlighted for emphasis): Henry didn't blink. He stood there with his hands in his pockets and listened. When I finished, he said, ...

Q: Can't remember title of a lost book I liked

JessI remember reading a book that I found once. I don't remember the title or author. The book entailed the reincarnated spirit of a daughter of Apollo. The storyline involves the 1st party telling from a teenage girl who was the daughter of a screenwriter and had a step-mother. The girl (the reinca...

Q: Blade Universe: Humans Fight Vamps

Jakepr26How are King and Whistler (both, Old Man in Blade 2) able to atand toe to toe with a vampire? Shouldn’t the humans have been too slow? Shouldn’t the vampire punches and kicks have broken the bones they connected with?

Q: How come no hole in the ground when Kylo Ren fired upon the self-projection of Luke Skywalker?

@Alex And so far it seems to be doing about as well as a regular answer would. Different site, though, so you can't necessarily extrapolate to here.

Q: Blade Universe: Vampires Drinking Vampire Blood

Jakepr26In Blade, Dr. Jenson establishes the reason for the thirst, vampires do not produce hemoglobin. As such, drinking vampire blood should be absolutely useless as a food source. Exactly how blood givens/enhances abilities, or even how the body produces such abilities is never established; therefore,...

Uff Going through American Gods question was mistake
Now I know spoilers from book
That's why I prefer TV show and book to have different tags
Q: Identifying an illustrated children's story book about two factions of alien creatures called "Blobs" and "Creeps"

Hassan SalmanI remember reading this book when I was 9 or 10. It featured illustrated stories about two strange alien creatures called "Blobs" and "Creeps". I remember them being small blob like creatures with legs. They were in different colors. The blobs were small and round and the creeps were also round b...

6:54 AM
What's the difference between toxic and offensive?
@SmokeDetector ok Smokey it's gone now
@Jenayah Toxic is poison.
@Jenayah can I take some credit ;)
@AnkitSharma both of us then :p
@Alex I meant in Smokey reports
@Jenayah I assume it follos through.
7:00 AM
@SmokeDetector deleted (cc @Mithrandir @Gallifreyan @SQB)
Offensive is bad but toxic kills you.
Not sure how they would implement such a thing
@Jenayah Toxic means that it scored a high toxicity score in Perspective.
@Mithrandir ok, I'll check that!
@Mithrandir That's actually really cool.
(Though obviously not as cool as answers that kill you.)
7:06 AM
Dilemma when you have questions which contradict each other and you don't want to ask multiple and get confused
@AnkitSharma ?
Just confused between my future question
Anybody seen Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts??
Confused if Batman Unlimited animated film series is worth or not
Nightwing look so bad
I only saw one Batman Unlimited and it was crap
The one when he meets Green Arrow
I felt it's crap but got to know there is 3 films and 2 season web-series so thought to check for opinions here
Meh then again watch one just so you have the right to criticize afterwards ;)
7:15 AM
I have seen one click and got devastated how creepy Nightwing looks
WB/DC ruing poor Nightwing
Looks like I overwhelmed it:

Q: Red dot for review queues doesn't go away

LShaverI've been having this issue for a while -- nothing in my review queues, but the red notification dot is there: Over on meta.stackexchange.com I found a post discussing the issue: Experiment: Review-needed indicator logic for sites that sometimes have empty queues @JonEricson recommended I po...

Q: Superman True power

Tobiis it true that superman is the strongest of all time ? in DC and MARVEL As shown above he is Moving Worlds.

@Marvin what?
@Marvin I'm really happy for you, I'ma let you finish, but Superman is the strongest of all time! The strongest of all time!
@SQB Doctor Manhattan?
@AnkitSharma Good point.
I can name many but Manhattan came first to mind
7:57 AM
And Dr. Manhattan is not just DC, but even same canon via Flashpoint, right?
Including Marvel makes this too broad and unanswerable, though.
@SQB not Flashpoint but Rebirth
@AnkitSharma Ah, right.
@SQB already placed close vote
@SQB flashpoint merged Vertigo, wildstrom and DC but many finished prints never made the list. But Dr. Manhattan came in rebirth, not sure how it progressed
If Marvel is included, Thanos with Infinity Gauntlet beat the entire pantheon into submission.
And most if not all of that pantheon could easily defeat Superman.
Do Manhattan power work against infinity stones?
As he can do a lot
8:08 AM
Anyways do we know why Manhattan did what he did?
@SQB we have so many over power people in DC and Marvel both
Franklin Richards, Anti-Monitor etc etc
Funny how no one mentions Mxyzptlk
Ridiculous but pretty powerful too
@SQB even with just the DC universe it's POB...
8:26 AM
@Jenayah Not necessarily. If there are other entities in the DC universe that are clearly stronger than Superman, there's not much POB about it.
Ok not necessarily POB but still broad
He can either kick anyone's butt or getting his handed to him depending on what writers neeed
Also gotta define strong...
Superman is strong physically sure but man he can be weak minded sometimes
@Jenayah but his weakness and stupidity make him weak
8:41 AM
@AnkitSharma my point exactly
Are we talking about overall strong or only benchpress strong
For me that kidn of question can never work even within DC
Yeah it's still both too broad and POB
8:57 AM
Has anyone yet mentioned that by moving the worlds he probably killed the people on them along the way?
Why u no work
You done broked it
@TheLethalCarrot Is superman sociopath?
9:08 AM
Is finite list question on topic here
@AnkitSharma yes as long as the list isn't that long :p
I have about flahspoint merger effect
If I am not wrong every vertigo comics didn't merged into DC universe
@AnkitSharma I think a "which Vertigo comics didn't merge into DC universe" wouldn't be too broad
@Jenayah I am asking opposite of it, which wildstrom and vertigo comics is part of DC universe
And my search say not asked before
that works too
9:13 AM
ok will ask
will upvote, I'm curious now :)
technically both sides of the question can be made into one I guess
lol wait need time to edit while replying to chat pings
Which are and which aren't
oh hey wait
before it's too late
Q: Is the Vertigo (especially post-"Lucifer") continuity now completely separated from DC comics?

GallifreyanI've been browsing through comic-related Wikipedia and Wikias, laughing at their inaccuracies and all, and noticed that Lucifer, as in the Morningstar, makes an appearance in the New 52 DC comics. Here's what Wikipedia has to say: The New 52 reinterpretation of Lucifer is much more influenced...

I've only read the title so far :p
9:17 AM
nah different question
aye now that I'v read
Well it is an answer just not a good one at all
@TheLethalCarrot c'mon...
@Jenayah meh
alright VLQ
9:22 AM
I'm not saying it should stay around but just being technical ;P
Right @Alex and @Randal'Thor aren't around so need someone to be the pedant one
@Jenayah done
Do we have scifi bot here, not sure anymore
Marvin? Yeah
Damn there's so many things about to come to the review queues
9:26 AM
did you hide it?
Now back to formulate my movies.se question in my head
@TheLethalCarrot :p
@TheLethalCarrot why?
2 FPs which are also LAs and I think 3 posts are eligible to hit RO too
Of those FPs at least 1 should go to VLQ and Jenayah may have sent the other there too
@TheLethalCarrot I sent the "my mother was presidnt of the library" one to VLQ queue
9:28 AM
Thought so
I think the other will go automatically
the Skynet one should be reopened
TLC always edging on 5/15 :p
6/15 at the moment cos apparently I can't count :/
let's see if I can clean up that mess of yours :p
9:38 AM
Q: Which comics from Vertigo and WildStorm comics got merged with DC universe in the end of Flashpoint?

Ankit SharmaWhile fixing the timeline in the end of Flashpoint comics Flash merges the three universes DC, Vertigo, and WildStorm but as per my knowledge not every comic form Vertigo got merged and a few old ones still stay separate. So I want to know which are the comics from Vertigo and WildStorm that got...

Q: What are the rules of the Guildpact?

ONOZIn anticipation of the release of the Guildmaster's Guide to Ravnica book for D&D I was researching how the Guildpact works and what it's rules were. On Gamepedia's Magic: The Gathering Wiki I found: The power of the Guildpact is subtle; it prevents any guild from dabbling into the busines...

@Marvin finally
Only 1 went to the reopen queue then
Not sure so skipping
5,777 nice
I wish more people would skip in review queues
@AnkitSharma we already have , which is currently just for Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox but seems to be used on both.
9:43 AM
@SQB that is wrong, comics is called flashpoint only
@AnkitSharma Cool, we'll keep them separate then.
And film should be ? ??
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is a direct-to-video animated film adaptation of the 2011 comic book crossover "Flashpoint" by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert. It is scripted by Jim Krieg and directed by Jay Oliva. The film stars Justin Chambers as Barry Allen / Flash, C. Thomas Howell as Eobard Thawne / Professor Zoom, Michael B. Jordan as Victor Stone / Cyborg, and Kevin McKidd as Thomas Wayne / Batman. The film also sees actors reprising roles from other DC Animated properties; actors including Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne / Batman, Nathan Fillion as Hal Jordan / Green Lantern, Ron Perlman...
Flashpoint is a 2011 comic book crossover story arc published by DC Comics. Consisting of an eponymous core limited series and a number of tie-in titles, the storyline premiered in May 2011. The core miniseries was written by Geoff Johns and pencilled by Andy Kubert. In its end, the series radically changes the status quo for the DC Universe leading into the publisher's 2011 relaunch, the New 52. Flashpoint details an altered DC Universe in which only Barry Allen seems to be aware of significant differences between the regular timeline and the altered one, including Cyborg's place as the world...
@AnkitSharma not necessarily, but maybe. cc @Randal'Thor :)
Note: I'm adding to relevant questions. I think there are 2–3 more, tops.
There's also the crappy TV Flashpoint.
@SQB nuke one on that three timelines, it lacks DC tag
Flash tag can be nuked
I think
I nuked .
9:50 AM
@SQB great
@Jenayah We may need to sort that out, too.
Done with for now, though.
so what's everyone's current x/15...
Perhaps you see any others? flashpoint -[flashpoint] is:q
@Jenayah 5
9:54 AM
@Jenayah SQB 5, me 5, anyone else 1
Just count you lazy get
@SQB the first one seems that way
lemme check
@TheLethalCarrot nah it's not handy with small window :p
Oh on mobile again?
@Jenayah added it, 6/15 now.
Does anyone want to write the usage guidance for ?
@TheLethalCarrot nah, working on other windows
Fair nuff
9:56 AM
@SQB I can sometime this afternoon if you don't want to do it
@Jenayah Don't know enough about it to do so.
Should include something like "use [flashpoint-paradox] for the Justice League movie, use [whatever-it-will-be] for the TV series."
Which TV series ??
@AnkitSharma noh the crappy S3E1 TV episode
from Flash CW series
which sucks
Y'know when they freaking teased it in season 2's finale
and ended up doing like five minutes of "actual" Flashpoint -_-
10:06 AM
That show don’t need this tag
@Jenayah it was disappointing shit
noh but as much as I hate to admit it it was another Flashpoint :(
@AnkitSharma this whole show began sloppily and went too much downhill
Whole arrowverse is going shit
@AnkitSharma I watched half of the first Arrow season and dropped it
I am behind 1 or .5 season behind in all
don't like the comics, don't like the show
10:09 AM
But will give Batwoman Chance
I watched 3.5 seasons of Flash before I letit go
@Jenayah but arrow season 1 and 2 was good
I watched 2.5 seasons of LoT... LoT is crap but funny, maybe I'll finish watching s3 someday
Supergirl didn't even bother ahah
@Jenayah supergirl I skipped season 1 and started form 2
Not bad not good just forgettable
I loved arrow in first two season and flash season 1
from the little I saw from crossover and teasers, meh
10:11 AM
Vixen is nice but too small
animated one yeah?
Constantine was good but canceled and now he is filler in arrowverse
@Jenayah yup
Did they release part 2 of animated Constantine yet?
That animated Constantine have confusing primer
@AnkitSharma Constantine wasn't part of Arrowverse though, the first series I mean
@AnkitSharma it's funny tho
And quite good overall
10:15 AM
Q: Which canon is Constantine: City of Demons part of?

Ankit SharmaI have not seen Constantine: City of Demons yet but I heard contradictory reports that it's a part of Arrowverse or DC Animated Movie Universe. In both canons Matt Ryan plays the part of Constantine. In Arrowverse he plays the role and in DC Animated Movie Universe he voices the character in Jus...

@Jenayah it became part of it later
@Jenayah in my pending list but no legal way to watch it
@AnkitSharma yeah when they made Constantine meet Oliver in the island or stuff?
@Jenayah yeah it suggest now it’s part of arrowverse but we never know how he tackle the cliffhanger
@AnkitSharma typo
Ooops will edit later
10:39 AM
TLC, just curious
When you edit in some HP fanfiction extracts when you're at work, you do use incognito browsing, right? :P
No, probably shouldda done though
I only searched around related words but damn was that a gipping read
Are you crazy or what?
I don't even want to know ahah
A company of total 9 people and 3 being IT with me being 1 I know most of the processes we have
10:41 AM
Only HP fic-id I ever searched for was the elf one, sounded pretty innocent when compared to all the others
Plus in my own office tucked away in the corner so no one can see my screens haha
10:55 AM
Is this one off topic? As far as I can tell it's only about a comedy routine describing what actually happened...
I'm baffled to be honest
Is it advertised as SFF?
@SQB fixed
No idea... I wouldn't have thought so though
@AnkitSharma #ModPowersAbuse :)
11:01 AM
@TheLethalCarrot maybe there are extinct species that actualmly never existed
It appears to just be marketed as "comedy"
From the official website
Who name there kid Scandal Savage
> "The Human Race" provides a play-by-play by "Chuck" Darwin of evolution from the primeval ooze on up
@AnkitSharma lol
Now I need to watch 4 films in DC Animated Movie Universe before Reign of the Supermen
Too much work
11:06 AM
Oh an old fan website - I don't think that one is the official one
I found my new favorite myth of the week
Mishipeshu or water panther
sound interesting
11:53 AM
@Jenayah In fact I was pedantic to you a while back on the very same issue, starting here:
Aug 17 at 17:32, by Alex
@Jenayah Here's a current example of an answer that is clearly an answer, but it's clearly wrong because the answerer mixed up two different characters:

@Jenayah Or you confuse me with Edlothiad.
Q: How did Cornelius Fudge discover that Sirius was in fact innocent?

ThorneNichIn Chapter one of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Cornelius visits "The Other Minister" and is asked if the visit has anything to do with this "Serious Black" man, and Fudge states that no, it turned out that he was actually innocent. ‘Is Serious Black with – er – He Who Must Not Be ...

@Marvin Dupe
@Alex Argh, cursed phone. Wrong comment. But it’s close enough to the right one to be figured out.
12:38 PM
@Alex pedants gotta be pedants
@TheLethalCarrot done
Jolly good
At what point do you think it is better for me to just answer the Q
@TheLethalCarrot don't
let new user have some fun :)
they seem to reply and not just hit and run with a VLQ so that's promising
Aye... that's why i didn't straight away haha
12:55 PM
why the heck do we have a tag
I was wondering that when I saw it yesterday but didn't bother looking
@Jenayah BURN IT
even if the tag guidance is helpful it's nowhere near how it's used
I suppose it works like all those "classification" ones for id Qs like aliens, space-sips and what not
@TheLethalCarrot nope
> This tag is to be used when discussing the implications of the light barrier in science fiction and fantasy works and propulsion systems which overcome the light barrier (e.g. the Hyper Drive in the Star Wars Franchise)
12:57 PM
Uh, the wiki and excerpt are the wrong way round
out of 16 questions I count 2 off-topic closed
7 story-id
2 history-of
1 Flash-related
