Too short, and the story boils down to "man puts on scp hat and kills self."
I like it. A tale doesn't need to be 50 chapters to tell a story or prove a point. Sometimes a story can be told in a short space.
:/ Yes I've also heard of Hemingway. /This/ story was too short for me.
Yeah, I know. I just look to that story as how a tale doesn't need to be elaborate or long or complex to tell a story.
*sigh* Yes your point is pretty obvious.
(warning: rant mode on) There are some truly great stories and scp's on this site. Products of great creativity, that can really make your mind go wild. But I always felt there is also a downside. Something that really pushes my buttons. And that is people trying to be smart. Be it in glorifying a certain scp, or burning it down to the ground, there just seems to be a lot of folks trying so, so hard to come across as smart and witty in the discussion pages.
Well if you're so smart and you don't like a certain article, just say so. Or write something better for fuck's sake. And if you like it, just fucking say so too. Don't sit and ponder about a smart way to praise it. The discussion page should be used for constructive criticism, and/or constructive praise. Not to show the rest of the world how witty and smart you are. /rant mode off
Jekeled, this is in no way directed at you, but you bringing up Hemingway kinda sparked it. Because yes, a four word story can be brilliant, but for god's sake, as brilliant as it is, I've heard that Hemingway story way too much. And I recon the rest of the world knows it to. Bringing that up doesn't make you particularly intelligent. And this particular story doesn't even come close to Hemingways for that matter.
Regarding this article; too much purple prose, and not really interesting.
If you're making some kind of a point I'm missing it. Feel free to drop me a message.
Or feel free to answer my post. Cheers.
The message is simple, astoundingly mind-numbingly simple.
You are a nerd.
"Jekeled, this isn't particularly directed at you, but people who bring up Hemingway are fucking assholes." :P
needs more outrageously bad similes. it doesn't make me read in in the voice of Peter Falk in Murder By Death, so it's not working for me yet.
