I'm in need of some Biblical quotes for a fic, and I'm terrible at location.
1. In what book does God destroy Sodom and Gomorrah?
2. Are there any quotes neatly summarizing the Old Testament view of death/the afterlife?
3. I'm thinking of a specific quote about the "sea shall give up her dead" which I think is in Revelation. Anybody know that one?
I feel pretty silly asking this, but not being a guy myself, I guess I should get some opinions to make this a little more believable since my story's narration is first person perspective from a guy.
Guys (the heterosexuals reading this), how do most of you generally feel about being touched by another guy, in a non-homosexual way? Like a clap on the shoulder, or being grabbed by the arm to get your attention, or poked in the head.. something. Neutral? Offended/defensive? Uncomfortable? Weirded? Is how you feel different if neither one of you has a shirt on? (and PLEASE believe me when I say this isn't a yaoi/gay romance that I'm writing XD ).
The specific situation is that my main guy is actually being confronted by an exact likeness of himself (he's not exactly on "earth" right now, more on a different plane of existance). So being an exact likeness, neither one of them is wearing a shirt (for not-random reasons). When he decides to ignore the confrontation and attempts to walk past his duplicate, the duplicate stops him with a hand on his shoulder as he passes and just kind of says, y'know, "I don't think so" in so many words. Since this will be turning into a pretty intense scene, I wasn't sure how to narrate this part, seeing as how it's already kind of weird that this is an exact him that's touching him. A lot of this I know would be according to his character, but I just wanted to know what the average thoughts would be.
Anyway... thanks. ^^; Silly question, I know!
Hi all - long-time lurker (very useful resource, this!), first-time poster. :)
i'm writing a story where a character is at risk of going blind from staring into a very bright, very strong light source. I'm trying to work out the correct medical name for that particular kind of blindness. Nothing too technical - something a widely-educated scientist would know, rather than a term specific to opthalmology.
Thanks in advance!
About - a year ago? Maybe closer to two? - there was a link floating around, to a manual on unarmed combat. It was illustrated, with all kinds of suggestive positions. The slashers had a field day, as I recall.
Now I'm trying to get two sparring-partners in bed together, and I can't find that site anywhere. Anyone? Pretty please?
