"Tell me about the alien," the investigator said.
"The what now?"
"The alien. We know a space ship landed here."
"Oh! That. Yes."
"Tell me."
"A spaceship landed. A door dilated. A guest emerged. We invited them to share our food and fire. They did so. They thanked us, then left."

"You own my lamp," the genie said, "and so I am obliged to offer you a wish."
"Are there any restrictions?"
"Only one. I can only fulfill wishes you will regret making."
"Well, that's simple. I wish you were free."
"That wish... I can grant."

"Oh dear, you have a lot of... things."
The cyborg looked up. "The word is prosthetics."
"So much machinery. Don't you worry you will stop being human?"
"Oh, there is a line I will not cross."
"What line is that?"
"I will not question another person's humanity."

"I found these centuries-old comics about people with 'super powers'. Did people really have those?"
"No, people have never had- Heh. Well, some did. People like us did."
"Like us? But we're nothing special, there's nothing unusual about us."
"In those days, we were invisible."

"How can you travel faster than light? According to Einstein-"
"He told a good story," said the visitor from the stars, "but his wasn't the last."
"We all tell stories to explain the universe."
"But one must be true."
"We have learned this: there are always more stories."

"Vous autres mortels ne connaissez pas votre chance de voir le monde en couleurs", commenta Satan. "Moi et les miens, nous le voyons en bichromie, tout d'une même grisaille. Et encore, il y a pire. Là-Haut, ils ne voient les choses qu'en noir et blanc."



"You mortals don't realize how lucky you are to see the world in color," commented Satan. "Me and my kind, we see it as a duotone, all shades of a gloomy gray. But there's worse: Up There, they see all things only in black and white."

@nebulos Addendum -- I realize that I may havemisunderstood your answer. Did you mean you thought you'd signed up for Critique Circle but had actually signed up for another, different, service?

I use it irregularly, depending on how much time I have available. I mostly do critiques, occasionally take part in discussions, and submit short stories — too rarely, I feel.

Critiques of my texts vary in quality but that's to be expected, and overall my experience is rather good.

Can you develop in which ways CC differs from your expectations?

@nebulos I could not tell from your public posts, so maybe you know it already, in which case I apologize in advance: have you tried Critique Circle?



Sometimes you feel like your life is a rough movie cut: every shot is badly framed, every scene too long, every line wrong, and none of the plot holding water. All mostly made of outtakes... And that's when you realize you're nowhere near the end.

Parfois on regarde sa vie et c'est comme l'ours d'un film monté à l'arrache : tous les plans sont bancals, toutes les scènes trop longues, les répliques sonnent faux et le scénario est nul. Tout est à jeter... Et là on réalise qu'on est encore loin de la fin.

(that should have been 'Cameo', not 'Plongée'. Oh well.)

The Dragon : easy. The three witches to follow, doable. The thirty armed skeletons... Some effort required. But now, I am looking down at the endless legions of Hell rising up for a friendly cameo, and I am running short of plans.

Le Dragon : facile. Les trois sorcières qui suivent : jouable. Les trente squelettes armés... Avec de l'effort on y arrive. Mais là, j'ai la vue en plongée sur les légions infinies de l'enfer venues faire coucou, et je commence à être à court de plans.

Here one results of my from today...

ok the happy orc became more a... unhappy orc :(
