      Added it to the poll, because I’ve said it like that on occasion.

    I’m… not entirely sure which one of these options properly represents “I’m a german, so despite knowing that’s probably wrong I pronounce it german-like. With the “i” being “ee”, the “o” pronounced like in… I guess “door”? as opposed to the sound it makes in “dog”. And the “a” like in “car”, not “cat”.
    And then three syllables, “mi-mo-sa” ^^

      I would love, love, love if you could record it into Vocaroo or something, so I can hear it!

        maybe not. I could see the infinite order being some Recruits at the end of the world getting the eff out.

          The most recent chapter indicates some incompatibilities between Webb’s writing and Stormy’s, at least based on the history as told by Walker (who, to be fair, is somewhat biased).

          Still, though, I wouldn’t really expect Recruits to turn out quite the way the IO did.

      Yes, but unnecessary Elvish is pretentious.

      Oh you.



      I still can’t believe that didn’t bother me. It probably should have.

        So, um, for the newer readers…leaky wrote a short story where a thiiiiiinly veiled version of me where I get -ahem- well, go read it.

          In this case I think he’s referring to The Gods are Bastards, which has a character named Trissiny . . . which translates from the Elvish (of that setting) as “silk tree” . . . or mimosa.

          I’d tell you to go read it, but then you wouldn’t write anything for three weeks while you catch up. So everyone else go read it, instead.

          It occurred to me after I made the above comment that–for reasons that are somewhat spoilery–GaB Elvish probably is Tolkien’s Elvish (or at least descended from it). However, I’m not quite enough of a nerd to have recognized Trissiny as having come from Tolkien.

    I was sure that it was the name he gave Stef though, unless I’m mistaken…

        Oh, yeah, trissiny wasnt used in Dont feed the readers yourself. It IS being used in a not yet finished short called the NerdyBird special.
