The "I write like" meme: http://iwl.me/

Another ETA: Making Light strongly suspects that this is bait prepared by a vanity publisher. I didn't even see any "rest of the text". Advanced case of filtering, I guess.

(Note: Be careful if you follow the below links, the design is what I thought cool in the heyday of Geocities. Protect your eyes.)

I fed it nearly all of the stories I had written in English, and got
- Chuck Palahniuk for Burning Bright, for an attempt at Highlander fanfic, and for a fragment inspired by reading too much Torchwood fic.
- Isaac Asimov for an OC deathfic with dark romance, cosmic powers and deals with devils.
- James Joyce for Collisions in Time. (WTF?)
- Stephen King for First We Take The Fridge... (ROTFL)
- J. K. Rowling for The Black Dragon's Son (that actually makes sense)
- Dan Brown for A Winter's Tale (I'm really wondering about the algorithm now)

Summa summarum, inconclusive. Which is good as far as I am concerned.

Moar ETA: If I paste in Charles Stross' "Overtime", it says "Chuck Palahniuk". On Gaiman's "We Can Get Them For You Wholesale" it say "H.P. Lovecraft". It correctly recognises the first three pages from "The King of the Golden Hall" as Tolkien.

Son of ETA: They are playing around wit it on Making Light.

In other news, Snow and I fenced in the rest of the balcony today. It looks very chickenwire-y. Cats are outside now, enjoy the cool and wait for moths to hunt.

ETA: Link. Dear History Channel your programs on the so-called "World War II" are completely unrealistic

Ich habe jetzt ein bißchen an einer älteren Story herumgebosselt, um sie endlich mal in trockene Tücher und an die staunende (ja, sicher....) Öffentlichkeit zu bringen.

Mag jemand gegenlesen? Hauptfragen sind, Stil, Tippfehler, copypaste-Fehler, Logik, und, Sollte noch was gestrichen werden?

Genre ist Fantasy (ziemlich standard), Länge 4.600 Wörter, Rating (denke ich) FSK 6, Warnungen, nicht daß ich wüßte.

Und: Was darf man auf Lomatia eigentlich sehen?

  • Ramsey Jefferson: Der Inspektor hat etwas gesehen, was er nicht hätte sehen sollen.

  • Eliza Montoya: Die Sachbearbeiterin der Lunar Space Cartography Foundation hat nicht mit Ärger gerechnet

  • Allan D. Mercant: Der Chef der SolAb findet, das sei ein Job für die Diplomaten.

...with the story "Malenka" which is already in this LJ.

You know what that means? I have recovered the info necessary to access it. Now I only hope they do not kick me out for using them too rarely as an ISP. That would be inconvenient.

Also, looking at the designs, it seems some redecoration is needed.

or, a slightly enhanced Lyorn (behaving more like a Tiassa, maybe) bampfs into Middle-earth.

Author's Notes: I wanted to see what I could do with the well-known premise, and got this far before lack of useful plot stopped me. Unless the plot fairy comes to visit in the night, I do not think this will ever get continued, much less finished. Still, it was fun while it lasted. Needless to say, this has not been beta'd.

In case you want to read a good story on the same premise, I recommend [livejournal.com profile] boz4pm's Don't Panic!.
