Q: Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy Fanfiction

LlamasandGodIt is a short fix that says to listen to the scientist by Coldplay while reading. Harry chases after Draco before he can take a train and leave him, yea I know of those romantic ones. Very sad

@Adamant yep :(
I got 194 yesterday 😖
@Alex huh. I wonder why
Does it count links from rooms on our site? You do post quite a few
@Stormblessed Someone has to be following the links for them to count.

Q: Children's story with magic chocolate pieces and a king whose phone is as big as his desk

BuzzI remember a story from a 1980s children's magazine (probably one of my younger brothers' subscriptions, so likely the late 1980s) about two friends—a boy and a girl, who break a chocolate bar in half, then star arguing about who got the bigger piece. When they put them close together to compare...

@Alex oh, is it? I assumed it was that way because of the shop's name
Fixed :)

releseabeJust saw a video which highlights this line: Was this meant to be significant?

Q: A tribe of telepathic male aliens produced by a tree. 1960s/70s short story

Michael C PriceWhen the aliens reach adolescence they die crossing a desert in an futile attempt to reach a similarly isolated female tribe and tree. Humans provide a waterway across the desert to enable the species to survive.

Q: Why were these characters absent in Spider-Man: Far From Home?

edgarIn the movie, Fury explains that both Thor and Strange aren't available, and presumably captain marvel as well. However, the whereabouts of the remaining heros on Earth aren't mentioned. The likes of Scarlet Witch, Hulk, War Machine etc could have been a major help against the elementals. What d...

Q: Why did Fury responded that way?

Mor ZamirAfter reading this question, I remember wondering about this while watching the movie: In Spider-Man: Far From Home, However, in Captain Marvel When was that change of relations?

Q: Cartoon/anime identification

TGamerSo there is this cartoon (or anime I can’t really tell) that I would watch like 9-10 years ago but can’t remember the name. Basically it was about these spherical androids, with limbs and all, but they could contract into a full sphere and move around at full speed. The protagonist I think was ...

Q: A Stunning CGI short film about war... and love!

Mister SpitfireBasically, the story is about two people - both leaders of their respective species. On one side, the tall, powerful looking male character, and a young, beautiful queen, who he is in love with.

Q: How did Jayne know when to shoot?

Rand al'ThorIn the first, double-length episode "Serenity" of Firefly (not to be confused with the film Serenity), Mal and his crew attempt to cut a deal with the dodgy Patience. Before their meeting, Mal sends Jayne around the valley to deal with the snipers that he's sure Patience has in place. We see a fe...

Q: Is there a way that Fury was not himself since the beginning of the MCU?

TinyDoowyAs we know from the post credit scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home Is there any clue in all the MCU that could tell us that Fury was impersonated since the beginning? And by "beginning", I mean for every movie which took place after the event of Captain Marvel. I think for example of the scen...

12:35 PM
@Jenayah I guess the lack of an apostrophe is misleading.
@Adamant Normal suggested edits won't work but could suggest to tag wikis. Though editing just for rep is a no no. FWIW SE rep doesn't count towards the cap
@TheLethalCarrot I'm pretty sure it does, actually. If I dig back in my history far enough there's a day when I got no rep from an edit.
Oh we've had this conversation before
It does sound familiar. :)
(Now that you mention it.)
12:59 PM
It does.

Q: General-type leads an attack on a port city from the sea

DavidWI would have read this between 2000-2005. It's a single scene from a book; it may even just be an epilogue setting up another book, or a "look for by this author" extract after the end of the novel. There are no overtly fantastic elements that I recall, but I wasn't reading any fiction other tha...

1:43 PM
@TheLethalCarrot it does, but Stormblessed doesn't earn rep from edits anymore as he edited 1000 stuff already
Ah ha! That's what I meant.. obvs :P
And thus earned the max 2000 rep from edits
Q: Which Stark armor is shown in this scene?

ShreedharIn Spider-Man: Far From Home, Quentin Beck Is it revealed which Stark armor was in this illusion? PS: I do not have the actual photo; feel free to edit the question and add if you have it.

Greetings, Earthlings.
Is Area 51 not on-topic on Meta?
I realized that they only support Gravatar
Which is weird
@Donald.McLean Good day, Hubble Guy
Oh both are
As if Gravatar weren't bad enough, they want me to use an outdated version of Flash on their website

[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Potentially bad keyword in answer, username similar to website in answer (58): Soft as a rock bed on the moon, seeking source & quote by SleepReality on scifi.SE
@TheLethalCarrot I got away with editing with a main motivator being getting reputation
If your edits are fine and comprehensive there isn't really a problem... if you're make poor edits just for rep that's where the problem comes in
Though I'd still think it was questionable editing only for rep
3:26 PM
Oh no!!!! It's been a whole 12 days without a floof in sight!

Q: Educational film where all the bright colours were kidnapped by the evil gray monster

BuzzI'm looking for a short educational movie that I saw in first or second grade. It was primarily an educational tool, to teach kids about colors, particularly the mixing of colors. However, I was particularly entranced by the sort of magical world the plot envisioned, in which the colors were se...

Q: Story in which two brothers had to follow extremely detailed instructions to get their inheritance

EJoshuaSI recall reading a short story a number of years ago where two brothers were each given extremely detailed (and sometimes rather tedious) instructions that they had to follow very precisely in order to get their inheritance. One of the brothers ended up having to spend a lot of the night in this ...

Q: By issue #193, how vast is the safe zone?

JenayahIssue #193 of The Walking Dead shows various places in the safe zone that came to be after I'm curious about how vast exactly that zone is. Last we saw the gang, they were in the Commonwealth, which is in Ohio, so rather east of the continent. Eugene and Maggie talk about rallying train rails ...

Q: Book about a girl who has purple eyes and wakes up in an airplane crash

user118780So I read this young adult/teen book a few years ago about a 16 year old girl named Sarah(?) who woke up in an airplane crash I think it was(?) and couldn’t remember anything before the crash. She also had purple eyes which were significant but I forgot why? (I forgot a lot from this book, it’s b...

Q: Short story: Two people who travel across the galaxy and eventually meet again at the same time and place

AndyD273A short story where two people fall in love, but because of work or something they each travel in different directions across the galaxy at relativistic speeds, and because of time dilation they are expecting to never see each other again. They each travel different distances at different times...

I'm a big Pratchett fan, and it's not unfortunately. It was definitely sci-fi as it involved something like a space battle or warheads or something of that sort. And the prison seemed to be in space. — Hal T Jan 13 '17 at 14:11
^ :-( Discworld is totally sci-fi too IMO, even if dragons are more common in it than robots and spaceships.

Q: Is showing movies this way legal?

MuzeCan I order a movie like Star Wars in 35mm, obtain the rights to play it publicly but play it in a different format from my CPU without the film? Showing Old Movies in Theater

@b_jonas so far there’s been the thing with the sky computer, but I’m only about 2/3 through the second
I think I heard the Internet gets invented in one of the books
Q: Why are flying carpets banned while flying brooms are not?

QuestionAuthorityBefore the Quidditch World Cup, Mr. Crouch Sr. says: “Oh and I’ve been wanting a word with you too, Arthur,” said Mr. Crouch, his sharp eyes falling upon Mr. Weasley. “Ali Bashir’s on the warpath. He wants a word with you about your embargo on flying carpets.” Mr. Weasley heaved a deep s...

@Jenayah A thousand curses on you!
Well, if that makes you feel any better, you got Inquisitive way before me, if I ever do. Which is logical, as you ask more questions
@Jenayah My Revivals make me feel better.

Fair enough :p

Q: Japanese animated movie where a plague that turns people into stone spreads across the Earth

Nanou LiliI watched this animated movie 6 or 5 years ago. It was about a spreading disease that turns humans into stone; it forced a company to make a project to freeze a bunch of people for 100 years in a castle hoping the disease will be gone by then. (I think they called it the "sleeping beauty project...
