Welcome to Gaia! ::

Is it sad that since I've read so much fanfiction, both good and bad, that none of this is new to me? I've read enough to seen evidence of every single one of the mistakes you've mentioned.

I had such fun pointing the same things mentioned here out to the respective authors. twisted heart

The thing I love about this thread? No l337 speak or chat-speak. It's a balm to my mind. 4laugh
www.20000-names.com is a really good place to look for names. I got all my characters names from there.

Thank you for the reminder.

Respect...

I am in the process of writing a fantasy, and I made up my own names for it.

The story is called the Legend of Thyvia. Legend, I got no problem with. But people keep saying that Thyvia sounds like an STD. and I have also named the capital city Thyvias. Is that wrong to do?

And I made up weird names.

Example:

People:
Gratris
Tialian
Raslaein
Corlis
Celewyna

Places:
Ranaes
The Haemililion
Necroliaen
Sarlile
Vastros.

So you see, I have a thing for the 'ae' and bashing the rule "'I' before 'E', except after 'C'

So do not be afraid to mess around with letter placement.

Though after reading the thing about Legend, I am trying to find something better, just in case.


...the cube.
