I am new. My name is Darth Petra or Fuzface. Call me what you want. I'm obnoxiously obsessed with Hedgehogs, Orson Scott Card, Fantasy, and Writing. Right now, I'm trying to write a fantasy novel. Which I have been trying to do for YEARS. It's about elves....who have fur and wings...and it will be awesome, hopefully. ANYwho, I'm pretty much insane and Ender-obsessed. The enemy's gate is down.

Hi Darth Petra,

But what about the times when the gate is actually pasted to the side of a sardine tin, and the orientation changes as the grocery cart topples along its way?

Good luck with your fuzzy elves -

Meh. Everyone thinks the fuzzy elves are too weird. But I think it will work.
The Enemy's gate is still down, becaue Ender is ALWAYS right because he is awesome.

This is true. I guess it is just the gate of my enemies that sometimes topples and tilts.

My friend, you truly are insane!

You should feel right at home with us. Welcome!

And I agree with your thinking that fuzzy elves will work. Anything will work if it is written well.

Speaking of which, the correct spelling is "anyhoo", I believe. :-D

Cheerio!

I should be insane. I've worked hard to become so. And I invent my own spellings of words. It confusiates people.

Hmmm ... confusiation might give rise to offence, albeit unwittingly.

"Bugger" is British vulgar slang: a noun, a verb or an exclamation.

As a noun it's hardly ever used by itself. You can call someone a daft bugger, a silly bugger or even a clever bugger, but not just a bugger. It's often a term of endearment, but to call someone you don't know a stupid bugger, or even just a bugger, is playing silly buggers.

If you're getting bored in the pub you can bugger the expense and buy drinks for all the miserable buggers around you. Or you might bugger off with friends in order to bugger about somewhere else, but be careful not to bugger up your evening by telling a tough bugger to bugger off--you might wind up buggered yourself and that may not have been your intention.

If you're unpleasantly surprised you might cry "bugger", "buggeration", or "bugger me"--but with the last, be sure to understand that your exclamation could be mistaken for an intimate invitation.

Welcome, I think, to Hatrack.
Pat

I meant "bugger" as in Ender's Game. I'm not British and I don't swear.

Ah. It was a term that bemused me in Ender's Game, as well.

Cheers,
Pat

Oh... you meant Enders Game. I couldn't figure out why you'd start off with what is sometimes taken as a rude comment. LOL

Well, hello although I am not a bugger lover.

lol! i got it right away though! and it would be quite as catchy as 'Formic-lovers' either. random question: does Orson ever explain where he got the name for them or how it was explained? I got the 'piggies' but I'd like to know where the term 'formics' originated. anyway, wellcome to Hatrack! Please leave your sanity at the door and kiss the cook!

Well, I'm glad someone besides me thinks so.
