Thank you! And welcome to the forum!
I used this template!
But there's a ton of other different ones to try! It's so much fun but time-wasting...
i am a newbie , i am here
Welcome! I just joined too. It's a friendly group.
Hi. I'm alive, if you're reading this, you're probably alive too.
I like books, I love to read and write. I've read a handful of light novels.
Thank you. Most here have been really friendly.
Yo I'm ACTS1966 but yous can call me Xavior Actman.
I study the science and philosophy of dum dum activity.
As I hail from the world renowned village of dum dum, I take great lengths to satisfy my pride for my dum dum heritage and I would like all of you to accept the dum dum within me if that's ok.
Well cyas soon, probably.
old acquaintances spacebro? heya luna! welcome to nuf~ and hopefully u r having fun~
hello uhmmm tienzhi-san? or would u rather be called some other nickname? welcome to nuf and enjoy~
yes yes! im alive too! o/
what genre do u like specifically oh mr.troublesomeone? xD that name lol.. welcome!
yes yes! its cool indeed!! *winks*
so.. how great is that science of dum dum? +.+

dun worry! anything is possible and accepted here in nuf.. well not really anything.. *points to the nuf rules n regulation*
but still! the dum dum within u is acceptable!!
Yes thank you not many appreciate the dum dum science like I do.
Anyway I shall explain it to yous at a later date, sorry for the inconvenience.
Oh yes sorry I forgot *wink with perfectly normal eyes"
Is dum dum actually able to be explained or like the force, Zen, and black holes only perceived when you are aware of the elements that bend around it?????
Nice to meet you.
Yes the dum dum is a type of energy gathered from reading particular dum novels that are just so dum that the novel can't contain the energy. If the energy is truly harnessed, a person can become a true dum dum immortal. That is what I aim for, to become an elusive dum dum immortal.
Thanks! I read... a diverse range. Usually it's the characters and writing style, something that I can only filter through trial and error that gets me interested. I also love world building, so fantasy/sci fi are lots of fun. It would be more accurate to say the genres I dislike; harem, isekai and comedy. I do not mind a bit of humour, but I prefer bleaker, more serious tones, and any story that props itself up on comedy is just... exhausting.
As is the case for probably a fair few people here, I came to light novels from manga, from anime. So I'm familiar with a lot of tropes, despite being a novice at the medium. I am, however, a prolific reader of western novels.
ahh.. i see.. how about magic? do u like those novels with a mixture or magic and science like lets say.. advent of archmage? or release that witch?... wait.. i think RTW is harem.. (/.\)
It really depends, once again. I haven't read the two titles you've listed, but magic can vary greatly from book to book. When it comes to CN webnovels, I don't know where to start. They're so long! And the descriptions, more often than not, appear incomprehensible out of context. I have no idea where to start, as there's so many.
For world-building, I enjoyed 12 Kingdoms (technically isekai, but has non of those negative tropes) and Seirei no Moribito (which only has one volume officially translated into English - the anime version is also magnificent).I'm currently reading Rakuin no Monshou and it's holding up too. These stories, however, appear to be in the minority. Magic is present, but there's no RPG-type level-upping, which I find removes a lot of potential depth. I like magic; a lot can be done with it, when implemented effectively. Incidentally, they're all JP-novels, but that's purely coincidence. I have yet to branch out.
I also like stories where the characters suffer, are not OP, but still have a purpose/will, and where there is a chance of death and tragedy. Action, war, sci fi, such like. Unfortunately, these genres seem infested with harems. To clarify, it's not harems themselves that are irritating - it's that many stories appear to exist purely for the purpose of adding to them. And the subsequent objectification of these 1 dimensional girls that really don't need to be there. After so many negative experiences, I avoid them on principle. I could also just be looking in the wrong places.
ohh.. rakuin no monshou.. true.. thats a good one.. how about grimgar of ashes and snow? its a serious one too.. oh.. like filler events huh..
