An Only Partially Plagiarized Speech

Capitol Building Astor-of-Stone Commonwealth of Norvenia The chamber that housed the Norvenian Senate was a curiously humble space. It was fairly small; the Senate had only thirty-six members, after all, and so there was no need for a cavernous room. But the Senate chamber was also beautiful. A cla...

The Zoranots'in Sevan, Nalaya Cynthia Baker could have said many things in response to Siri Kalousdian’s analysis of the O’Donnell Doctrine. She could have said that Siri was right, for in a sense the Nalayan was correct: the Doctrine did exist solely to turn into political reality a single viewpoi...

When Jean Bernier finished speaking, James Pearson was smiling quietly to himself – a gentle smile, a smile calculated to reduce tension. Clearly, there was a need to do so; after Samantha Cummings’ little speech, Antonia Torres was visibly fuming, almost bursting with the need to make her counterar...

It's worth noting that the Southern English are much richer than those up north, and tend to be more...aristocratic, I suppose, would be the right way of putting it. The accents are also certainly much more different, and considered more posh. London is in the South, and tends to be the media centr...

Unfortunately, given the pace of current events, unavoidable RL issues have come up: a dear friend of mine is going into surgery for breast cancer.
