I promise we start talking about the episode's main topic eventually, if you want to skip over all the perfection that is Redwall, Ping-Pong drugs and Wheel of Time bashing go to approx. the 21 mark.
Today we discuss the books that changed the course of a genre, that added or reorganized or retold a story in such a unique way it changed the way we think about stories.
We also gave each other new writing prompts they are as follows: Stephen's prompt for Joel:
I would like you to write a thriller that takes place at the Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station
. It cannot be supernatural. Joel's Prompt for Stephen:
The dark one rose, the scholars and prophets scoured the countryside to find the foretold chosen one. Its now the last battle the forces of good and evil are fighting what could be Armageddon but everyone knows that no matter what heroics take place on the battlefield the outcome will be determined by the true fight between chosen hero and great evil. But… two chosen ones have shown up.
They both fulfill every minute detail of the prophecies but the foresights also all agree that the final battle is to be one on one. The dark one is here how do you decide who to send out and fight.
