Hey, um, 29 and 63 are the same. Just was wondering if you wanted it to be that way or if you didn't notice. I mean, I know I wouldn't be able to tell if I made a list of 500 different themes. ^^
Apr. 18th, 2010 02:38 am (UTC)
Oh god thanks! I didn't notice. Let me see if I can't fix that and get it edited.
Apr. 18th, 2010 03:16 am (UTC)
Yeah, no problem. I'll tell you if I spot anymore.
Apr. 18th, 2010 05:21 am (UTC)

May. 24th, 2010 02:57 pm (UTC)
Um, #70 - "Anteceptic" air. Do you, by chance, mean antISeptic?
May. 24th, 2010 03:26 pm (UTC)
Also, #115. Deliverence. It's "deliverAnce".
And #145. Magestic memories. - "maJestic";
#146. Breathe, baby breathe! - "baby" ought to be in commas from both sides;
#149. Transcendant joy - TrnascendEnt;
#180. Irresistible coersion - coerCion;
#237. A broken sensativity - sensItivity;
#281 - might be just a stupid question, but do you mean cull or call?
#351. One summers/autumns/winters/springs eve - summer's/autumn's/winter's/spring's
#486. Catachlism - catacLYsm;

Sorry for going all grammar!nazi on you. I blame my brief working as an editor. :'D
May. 24th, 2010 03:28 pm (UTC)
Okay, I corect myself there: #149. Transcendant joy - TrnascendEnt TranscendEnt.

You can't fix spelling errors without misspelling something, orz.
May. 25th, 2010 08:44 pm (UTC)
Laughs! It's all right! Sorry. I wasn't trying to mock you or anything. I just woke up. And I hadn't looked at the other comments to see this correction. Laughs.

#235. And the edges blurr - bluR
#258. Asassin for hire - ASSassin

Yes, I know, I misspelled. But I also fixed it in a later comment.
May. 25th, 2010 08:41 pm (UTC)
Just check the thread this comment is a part of and you'll see the rest of the spelling corrections.
May. 25th, 2010 09:24 pm (UTC)
Laughs- Again, sorry! I had just woken up and my brain was foggy. I didn't get a chance to check before writing that.
May. 25th, 2010 08:18 pm (UTC)
Laughs- Yes! I do. Sorry about that! I'll change it.
Jul. 24th, 2010 07:38 am (UTC)
And I'm back with a few more nitpicks, orz.
178. Even he/she/I have forgotten his/her/my name… - should be has/have
193. They're calling me/you/he/she/them home. - him/her

I don't know how these two slipped my attention before; must be because I was concentrating on correct spelling only, not usage.
Aug. 3rd, 2010 02:12 pm (UTC)
Re: And I'm back with a few more nitpicks, orz.
Thanks! I'll read everything you sent and then go back and change the dragon again. Smiles!

Hey there. Fae is supposed to be referring to beings such as elves, faeries, etc. Maybe I spelled it wrong. Maybe it's 'fey'. I'll go and look. Thank you!
Aug. 28th, 2011 12:08 am (UTC)
No, fae is the correct spelling.
Oct. 28th, 2010 03:11 am (UTC)
Hi there. I just joined the community and I'm excited about using your generator to make some nice stories. I was wondering if there is any particular format that our posts have to be in when we use a prompt, like stating the number the prompt was and how many words it is, and the like?
Oct. 28th, 2010 06:20 am (UTC)
Please state the at LEAST the prompt number, the prompt, and the word count. Everything else is optional. Take a look at the profile page. I'm pretty sure all this is covered. *smiles*
Oct. 28th, 2010 05:52 pm (UTC)
Okie doke, thanks a bunch! =]
Oct. 28th, 2010 06:50 pm (UTC)
No problem, hon!
May. 20th, 2011 07:32 pm (UTC)
If we have the old list, can we use those prompts instead? Or interchangeably? And if we used old prompts for a previous story, should we go back and change it?
May. 20th, 2011 08:00 pm (UTC)
If you have an old list, you can keep it. If you want to interchange prompts, go ahead.
Jun. 12th, 2011 06:38 pm (UTC)
Hello! Just wanted to let you know that both #12 and #131 are "Central power."

Also, kudos on the wonderful theme list; I wish I had enough motivation to take on a challenge like this, because the prompts really are inspiring.
Jun. 12th, 2011 06:53 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! For both the heads up and the compliment!
Jul. 15th, 2011 09:33 am (UTC)
Спасибо за информацию
Все, выхожу 15 ноября замуж. Поздравьте меня! Заходить теперь к вам редко буду. Журнал Ваш почему-то недостаточно раскрученный и плохопосещаем. Рекомендуем оптимизировать его с помощью софта XRumer 7 Elite (ХРумер 7 Элите) получить можно тут http://x-rumer.ru/ говорят отличная программа для рекламы ЖЖ сайтов.
Aug. 14th, 2011 09:16 pm (UTC)
Hello, I just have a quick question!

If I really like both the new and old prompt for a certain number, let's say #45, the eye of the storm, #45, caress the darkness, kiss the light, could I write fics for both and then use one of them to replace a prompt that doesn't really inspire me? For example, can I use the old #45 as #45, and then use the new #45 as say...#100 (or any other #)?

I'm sorry if that was a bit confusing. Thanks in advance!
Aug. 15th, 2011 02:44 am (UTC)
You definitely can! Go for it, hon!
Aug. 15th, 2011 06:20 am (UTC)
Thanks a bunch!
And for #442, I think you meant "a far greener country."
Aug. 27th, 2011 09:38 pm (UTC)
It's actually part of a quote from Lord of the Rings - "a far green country under a swift sunrise."
Aug. 28th, 2011 06:14 am (UTC)
