  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.

  3. If you wish to change your username, please ask via conversation to tehelgee instead of asking via my profile. I'd like to not clutter it up with such requests.

    What is with depressing stories lately?! Game of throne copies are everywhere!
    Here are some uplifting series imo(YMMV).
    Safehold by David Weber; Warning- Doorstopper Series. Many bad things do happen, however the main characters do retain their honor and faith. This is a rarity these days.Also very conservative views, so..
    Pern Series by Anne McCaffrey; Old series, but good one. Rather athesist for fantasy, but very hopefull.
    Heirs of Alexandria universe (3+authors).
    This in contrast with Pern is very Faith based. There is a theme of unity and hope throughout. The only nit is that it does not shy away from hard hits and Westerosi-level historical monsters.
    Terry Pratchet's Discworld. Needs very little description. Author Existence Failure has occured however.
    Pyramid Scheme & Power by Dave Freer and Eric Flint. This is fantasy/myth done hilarious. The dictionary of terms at the back of the books hits the funnybone hard.
    Fanfiction will be next if this thread gets a second page. * Posts welcome*
