    I have no idea. Same reason why some high-profile academic people are idiots in everything but their own field, I guess. I don't remember why I wrote him that way, which is a small blessing in itself.

    Then someone rang a bell and all the pirates started to gather around the table in the middle of the room. All except for Captain Roy Gorgo.

    I mean, I had the obligatory phases with pirates, Ancient Egypt, and knight stuff even before Pirates of the Caribbean was a thing, but when I saw the movies, my brain just locked onto that. I had to write books about pirate tropes so that I would not talk about it all the time. However, for the sheer dramatic quality of the plot, I also liked Black Sails, even if it has a bit of Game of Thrones morality sprinkled in with themes of adventure etc.

    "There has been a theft of property that goes under the Pirate Insurance Policy. As you all know, Captain Gorgo is not the man to need such policies…except for one thing. We all swore we would protect each other and our insured property."

    I mean, I dunno, it probably really doesn't.

    Out of these twenty-five men, he was probably one of the five who could read. That gave him an advantage. Out of all these men, he was the only one who knew about Gorgo's double identity. Finally, he had a chance to drag his bastard brother through dirt to show who was the real man.

    Better than ever honestly. Merely not writing at the moment and having all projects related to writing on hiatus. Thanks for asking :)

    Magic toasters are a cool idea, I like them. Dragonskin is probably a very good material for handbags. I like several magitech tropes, but I don't know if there are many books about wizards literally smuggling stuff into a fantasy world. It felt like a funny idea and I wanted to read it, so I had to write it. I also like the main character. He's someone right on the borderline between heroic mentality and opportunism. I like the book as a whole. It's mine. It's something fun, and that's fun.

    Author here. While I can't actually say anything perfectly objective about my own books except that I'm obviously right, I can say that it's a natural progression of my own voice and plotting methods. It's better than the last one, I mean. The core concept is the wish for unlimited wishes, a spellbook that enables you to create unlimited spells in a world where spellmaking is penalized heavily or impossible and casting spells is hard and dangerous. I think that's a neat goal, which is why I like my book. I also like the way I've cleaned up my style. Sometimes I do go on a tangent, but that's just the way it is. The main character may not sound sympathetic. However, I started to like Lieto, and I think you might like him, too.

    me but unironically

    It hurt even more because of the brotherly bond. Everything was broken now. Roy was 23, and Seb was 21, but they could have been lightyears apart. What had happened had torn them apart, and Roy had let those things do that to them.

    On this platform, it's hard to imagine this selling too well. It's not horrible. The grammar and style are fit for the tropes and the chosen genre. However, that's where it ends for me. Long paragraphs make it impossible to read for mobile users, the self-indulgent language turns me off immediately, and the cardboard-like taste of the plot and the characters prevents me from enjoying this. Someone might enjoy it, because there is a market for this, but I don't consider it to be top quality writing. It's like the book itself is breathing heavily into my ear. Please change the rating, too.

    this part of the story was based on a true story, just a regular morning in my own life

    I'm brainstorming as hard as I can and these comments give me a lot of motivation to do it more. I will aim to, dunno, write something that more than 3 people will like. Which makes sense. Thank you.

    No, he had to think about dogs to get his eyes tearing up again. He thought about how many dogs had been unjustly murdered by unfit owners. He thought about the ones that had been hunting with him, sharing moments of joy and horror alike, he thought about the nature of animals, so unlike humans, so honest, so uncomplicated, and that was where he broke down.

    You pay for character development when you do it I guess? Either good or bad development

    Naturally, after being inside such a disgusting place for so long, Nick had questioned his life choices.
