I love today's word... SO MUCH.  It is fun to say and it just looks ... pleasing to me :D

For your consideration:



A dragon whirligig!

I think my favorite usage is it as a descriptor...

"It has been a whirligig of a year!"

Double posting to add that I loved your take on it today Dys!

"A sickly whirligig of emotions churned inside of him.."

It works perfectly for setting the tone, and the added element of something that can be fun and child like instead describing intense and uncomfortable emotions is pretty awesome.

Thank you, my Muse was all "Oh nice, be depressing" then went back to brooding and being a prick. I guess it's better than nothing. :P

Also I just realized that I could turn the WotD badge into a link... >_< Man I'm dense sometimes.

I just wanted to post a little feedback/commentary! Been so long since I had a chance to read things. I only wish I had time to type up a little bit of everything for everyone, as I haven't had time to read everything. <3

ZephyrInk's piece using the word valedictory was just fabulous! There's a horror story in there, one that just has me all sorts of excited. Will the father return? How will he, even after death? Who is Olivia? I have questions!  :D

Shores--I love how often you are contributing! I appreciate seeing all your selections in the Word of the Day, but I think I especially love the one you did today! The double-use of plagiary was just clever; I adored it! Although I have a special fondness for the word grok, so this entry really caught my eye. The dialogue you have for that selection's particularly great. :)

Rhedyn's piece, using the word nudnik, was a neat read. Maybe I just love seeing elves and dwarves fall in love, but that piece has a wonderful story to tell. I'm rooting for Lythandra & Aindan!

And Dys Astyr's use of nudnik was pretty great and exciting! It's no secret that I'm a sucker for the fantasy genre, and if you throw in a good duel, then that's just all the better! Brenwyr seems like a badass, and she also seems like such a tricky person!  8-)

Badass, maybe. XD Tricky? Well, sometimes.

Thank you though, it's been a long time since I've wrote this character I was worried I'd lost the feel for her. Maybe I shall follow Zephyr's lead and see about giving her an RP.

CONGRATULATIONS ZephyrInk!
You've made it into E's WotD Hall of Fame!





*confetti explosions*  Your posts have been exceptionally fun to read :-) I especially enjoyed the tower project with incoherence, if only because I have been in that position many times before and felt deep sympathy for poor Jason.  Thank you for all of your lovely submissions!

Oh my goodness Shores, how do you do it? You always have a nice, snappy morsel for every word!

Most of the time I struggle just to come up with something cohesive that doesn't veer off into a ramble. XD

So today's word is a bit bizarre... I thought I'd share the example's for it. XD

Quote
The tenants got into a bit of an argy-bargy over their shared porch.

"I would object to the leaders' debates much less if they took place only on the radio. Then there wouldn't be all the argy-bargy about who stands where, wearing what." ó Charles Moore, The Daily Telegraph (London), 24 Apr. 2017

I somewhat cannot believe this is a really real word. :P

As a follow up since I was curious.

Quote
Argy-bargy was a late nineteenth-century modification of a Scots phrase, which appeared early in the same century in the form argle-bargle. The first part of this older version was a modification of argue. The second parts of the two forms, bargle and bargy, never had any independent existence ó they are no more than nonsense rhyming repetitions of the first elements.

An example in the old spelling from later in the century:

Last night ye haggled and argle-bargled like an apple-wife.

I love that your last two pieces go together Oreo, that's so cool! ;D

I'm gonna have to wear the cone of shame if I don't get back on the ball with actually writing for the WotD. >_> But my new story is so distractingly good I can't think about anything else. XD

Writing that made me want to tell more stories about an adventuring lawyer -- I think I'll need to keep that character in mind for the future.
