    Note how I am not asking you about where the second series starts.

    I am going to just read the whole thing and see if I notice a dip in quality or what have you.

    As to where I am; Corwin has just walked the Pattern in Rebma and gotten his memories back.

    Every time I see the title of the current SHR chapter, my brain re-writes it as "Warriors and Librarians".

    That is all.
    Yes, I know the voices aren't real. But they do have some VERY good ideas....

    My brother tried to fix our already sufficiently functional internet - basically, all computers in my parents house had working internet except one.

    As a result, now no computer in my parents house has working internet. >_<

    Guess I'll be staying in my appartment until they get this sorted out.

    Your brother is clearly a guru.

    *Topic shift*

    Nik, please have Corim answer Avelyn about whether we're all allowed to touch the orb. And no, that's not a euphemism. Us finding out how much Disco Light Potential we have at least gives us something to do until the next timeskip.

    Presumably the "Crystal Empire" itself used to extend further, but after King Sombra blasted everything that wasn't in the capitolwith his shadowy-evil, and turned it into a wasteland, the ponies retreated to theh capitol and stayed there.

    ...And given how open-air the chamber he kept it in was, a Pegasus could easily have swooped in to pick it up without activating the pressure plate that triggers the final trap. Oh well.
    The problem was noone knew it was up there. And while he ruled, he kept everyone too scared to go look.

    He's actually better at computers than pretty much everyone else in the family, except possibly his fiancé who is a trained tech support. Apparently the problem rather lies with the Windows automated network system, which my brother describes as the "worst thing Microsoft has ever created."

    That's quite a claim. There's some pretty stiff competition for that title.

    Good stuff. That's pretty much where shit starts getting real.

    I recall liking the first two or three books the best, at least in the sense that they are the one I remember best. Things got a bit complicated further in. I should probably re-read the whole thing, actually.

    Friend of mine says there's supposed to be an audio version read by Zelezny himself. Might try to find it.

    ...Aw crap. I'm not sure if I did a proper match with Thorkell and Dian Wei since the more I look at it...Dian Wei curbstomp the Hell out of mooks with his bare hands with the most insane durability I ever seen.

    Then again, Thorkell isn't a slouch himself and I think he has better speed, seeing how he fought and pretty much dominate against Thorsfinn in their fights.

    I just started reading "Jojo's Bizarre Adventure" once more.

    Hirohiko Araki is the only person who can make stuff up as he goes along, and makes it work perfectly.
