Holy paper catnip, Batman! Any sub that includes the words "Tower of Forbidden Cats" deserves far more recognition. I like Echo's idea of the knowledge being instilled while petting the cat, since that would suit Rigalene's personality better (and make the chore of spell memorization an enjoyable afternoon task). But if pages of paper-thin flesh are more your style, then awesome I guess (backs away, very slowly . . .).
I'm sure it wouldn't be long before a necromancer was trying to reanimate old catbooks as cat-zombie-book fiends, and the pages of flesh suit them better, anyway.
Fantastic job. Looking forward to using this one day! Go to Comment
Agreed. This is the internet, be nice to cats! If you were going for a cat-bus vibe, then petting would be a much better idea than opening the poor things. And while you're at it, that whole shove a book into a cat part provokes some disturbing images as well. >.< Go to Comment
This is a perfect flavor piece. Something I'd use in a highly fantastic setting (or possibly an alien planet). I might make them a little less watermelon-ey in description, but overall I love this sub. Definitely got a laugh from me, thanks! Go to Comment
Ah, you´ve been reading some Mieville lately, I gather? Still, you´ve given the race a few quite respectable twists of your own, which really boosts this way beyond any form of plagiarism. Very well done! Go to Comment
Actually, I like these guys better than Mieville´s rather dull critters, so well done. I´m a huge Mieville fan, but his creature ideas are rather too unimaginative for my tastes. Good job! Go to Comment
I've never read Mieville, actually. People keep telling me to. But I googled the book (I think) you're referring to. Anopheles is just a major genus of mosquitoes. China and I both need to be more creative with our names, I think.
This dude came from a conversation about genotyping a population by capturing mosquitoes. Cloning, homunculi. . . same potato. Go to Comment
