Burns the fire of dragons breath

For they will have to travel far
Under the clouds and under star

Do not shrink at sight of mountains' peek
Nor shudder at snow and sleet
Push on with eyes alight and step fast
Draw your sword and set your eyes unto the west

Hidden in the cold, hard, forbidding rock
Is a door as old as key or lock
Amid the snowy, arching pines
That only true of heart can find"

I always say "What the-" and then just stop. I've had people say that that's still swearing in an indirect way because my original intention intention was to swear. o.O But... it *wasn't* my intention... so... is it considered swearing or not?

I like the Patrick McManus curse. In his comic short stories, sometimes he'll have characters say something like "What the bleep?" Hehe. Or, if someone's mad at somebody else, "You bleeping bleep of a bleep!"

Have you read McManus? I think he makes it work in context. His stories are ridiculous...but in the most hilariously awesome way.

You mean they made the chirping noise to cover your language, or they called you a bleep?

Lycanis. XD I don't think Airi would curse... though she'd gain even more respect from me if she had.

No, Matt, I haven't...

You must. I'm pretty sure you'd love his stories. Get A Fine and Pleasant Misery. :cool: Classic American humor right there.

I'll look it up. Thanks. I love book recommendations, and am always hunting good ones, even when I have a hundred or so waiting to be read. xD

Same here. Well, more like a thousand. I have a whole library's worth of books on my to-read list, and I OWN more than 120 novels I haven't read yet...

ANYWAY. Starting to get off topic here...

Yeah, same, and countless abandoned ones.

So... to answer Mist's intention, I don't think that's swearing on your part. It happens. Therefore it'll be in our books. We write truth, not a world full of perfect people. That's now where we live. It needs be be addressed. But we can show people to be as vile as they are in real life in a tasteful way that doesn't endanger us or our readers. Exactly how you said you went about this is how I would.

*laughs happily and wags her finger at Eli playfully *

No, Wolf, I do not curse. I am subjected to it often, due to ministry and other such things, but I myself do not.

Sorry, Eli, guess you shall have to admire me less. ;)

No, a guy bleeped at me when he was very frustrated with me, but didn't want to full out cuss at me. It was a high stress moment, so at the time it wasn't funny (though I didn't really care that he bleeped me), but in hindsight... it's humorous, and I admire him for trying to be courteous, even under stress. He could have just swore at me, but he did not.
