I came to LegendFire over ten years ago now. Very glad to see it back.
I used to be PretendTheresPurpose and then ScintillaPurpose; I deliberated for a while on the new username. Myntan is Old English for 'to mean' or 'to intend.' I don't know much about Old English, but it was a beautiful language with some beautiful poetry! I'll see how I feel about this name in a while; I'm still not sure that I'm going to keep it this way.
I'm not doing very well, to be honest. I'm working out some important aspects of my identity. Years of neuroticism have also led to a full-blown severe anxiety disorder that weighs on me all the time. I'm trying gradually to get back to writing again and appreciating the narrative that is life.

I'm so glad you're back! I remember we had a discussion one night about language evolution and dialects. I learned so much!
It sucks you're having a hard time. Remember, you're not alone; you're not forgotten. You may just read these words on a screen, but all these replies are from real people who care. We're here for you.
pelwrath: I’ve only had such a contract for a story once before. That doesn’t excuse my stupidity.

pelwrath: Did about 1200 words on Vampire #2 this morning with more for tonight. Wife and daughter watching Candyman.

pelwrath: My wife said with pouting eyes, “don’t you want to watch Candyman with me?” Horror not a genre of preference. Monster scary (Alien, etc.) fine. That said, movie isn’t that bad with an interesting twist at the end.

RAVENEYE: Oh, ugh, no! Saw that one waaaaay back. Never again. Not my genre either. Still, I've never said "Candyman" three times while looking in a mirror. No way! LOL

pelwrath: This one is brand new and answers questions from the first.

HDSimplicityy: i dont think Ive seen it either.

pelwrath: Researching the city of Edinburgh isn't hard, but trying to connect two disjoint locations in and near the city for my book 2 draft, ain't easy.

Caulder Melhaire: We've been joking about Candyman at work because the lead was excited to see it

Caulder Melhaire: "Okay, you guys go home and say candyman 3 times in the mirror and then come back and tell me what happens"
Sept 22, 2021 20:17:40 GMT -6
whaleworkforfood: What do you guys think happens if you say Candyman (or Bloody Mary or any other mirror-related apparitions) non-consecutively? Like if you say Candyman once tonight, then says Candyman again the next night. Do you still summon Candyman?

pelwrath: If you're saying with the knowledge of what could happen, then too bad for you. Also, the new movie provides an interesting definition of mirror.

Caulder Melhaire: I think it has to be consecutive or else my parrot-y butt has unknowingly summoned Mary Worth several hundred times by now LOL

Alatariel: What about with Beetlejuice? I think it must be within a certain time-period, like the same minute or something.
