Q: Short Story: A writer has his fiction analyzed by a computer

polm23I'm trying to find a short story about a writer who has his fiction analyzed by a computer and it tells him the main theme of his work is sludge (or grease or grime or etc.). He's surprised and upset by this. I don't think there was any conventional action, most of the story was back and forth be...

A: Story or short story about a planet where the sunlight never ends

Organic MarbleSomething like this happens on Venus in the 1975 John Varley story "In the Bowl". Then there's the sun. When I was there it was nighttime, which means that the sun was a squashed ellipse hanging just above the horizon in the east, where it had set weeks and weeks ago. Don't ask me to ex...

Q: Why were the Atreides guarded so weakly?

Q: In the tenth Animorphs book, why does Ax have his arm reattached with a scar left?

AndaliteLoverCould he not have just morphed into another creature then demorphed back to Andalite? In book 10, it says: He even reattached my arm. I saw a scar on Ax's left arm. Could someone explain this, please? Or does he fix it later on? (I'm only on book 10, so no spoilers please.)

@TheLethalCarrot Congratulations! \o/

Urgh. How do you write <text like this> so that it actually shows up in angle brackets in a post?

Q: Is Owle Bullock a Horcrux-creator?

Kyle VAre there more than 2 creators of a Horcrux, besides Voldemort and Herpo the Foul? Since the book "Secrets of the Darkest Art" states that full remorse restores your fragmented soul and reintegrates it into your master soul (which would be found in your body), assuming they aren't already destro...

Q: Can wizards tunnel under a shielded area?

Kyle VCan wizards tunnel under a shielded area? For example, can wizards tunnel under an area of land outside a shielded area, and walk a certain distance then destroy the piece of land above you, and then use a way to get up (like making a ladder appear out of thin air, broomstick, then reappear insid...

Q: How did Lex Luthor become Secretary General of the UN in Young Justice?

JordanTheCynicAccording to the Qualifications of Office for Secretary-General of the United Nations, no citizen of the ''Permanent 5'' can be nominated for or elected to the office of Secretary-General as it would cause a power imbalance. I haven't been able to find a part in the series where they mention th...

If you're on lockdown, with no remote work available, bored, and are willing to spend 4 euros for ~12h of gameplay, Cat Quest is frankly quite enjoyable.
(played on PC, can't speak about the iOS experience)
9:53 PM
My plan is to buy the Spyro remaster on Switch when I get paid
I might have a look at that though to see if it’s kill some time
If you want something with more story, it's been a while but this happybackwards.itch.io/ishara was great
Q: Why does Riker not have to be Admiral to command a fleet?

Torsten KnodtWhy does Riker not have to be Admiral to command a fleet in the last episode of Picard? I would have expected that he gets a field commission and is, during having this, addressed as Admiral.

@Jenayah got a nice art style
Bonus points if you like cat puns
the whole game has ltos of it
Haven't played the second one yet

Q: Book where all the characters are named after chess pieces

simon_smileyI remember reading this book maybe 8-10 years ago. It was set in a school and all the characters were named after chess pieces. There was a teacher called Mr Bishop maybe and someone’s nickname might have been Rook. Probably not exactly those but along those lines. We followed different perspect...

Q: in Disney's Gargoyles, if there are only 3 known races (Gargoyles, Humans and Oberon's Children) what of the other legendary beings?

RusshiroDisney's Gargoyles intruded Oberon, the Fairy King, as ostensibly the "source" of most magic in the world. By this, I mean it's his "Children" which became beings of incredible legend, from haunting spirits like the Banshee, to demi-immortals like Merlin, to legendary trickster spirits in various...

Q: When Harry's blood was taken by Voldemort while Voldemort was immortal, was he also immortal?

Kyle VFirst part of a two-part question: When Harry's blood was taken by Voldemort while Voldemort was immortal, was he also immortal? Here's the relevant quote from the books. DH Chapter 35: “He took my blood,” said Harry. “Precisely,” said Dumbledore. “He took your blood and rebuilt his livin...
