Blue. But I like purple. Since I have more dark purple colored shirts to match my black stuff then I do with blue.

I only post novels when I feel I need to explain something I posted that may confuse others. And usually depends if I can explain it in one sentence or a novel.

Black, red, blue.

I only turn things into novellas when I'm really intrigued by the subject, when I particularly identify with the subject.

Edit: site maintenance double posted my post wth

Sort of doesn't look like her but worth a shot to ask.


No, it's an original work from Hetza (Hellshock). All of his work is pretty great.

What is my favorite color?


Some people might try and be fancy and say Favourite colour, but i am not a hipster and will not write it like that. On to the favorite color part, i would say but i cannot pin point one specific color to choose as my favorite. if i had to i would sy it was a sapphire color. If you think about it though, sapphire, is not just a blue color it can be a wide arrange of colors, you can find Yellow, Green , Orange, pink even Red sapphires. However a red sapphire would be called a ruby, but only depending on how red the sapphire is. If the sapphire isnt a certain minimum quality of rub, like to light-colored it will not be considered a "Ruby" just a pink sapphire. Some people think Rubies and Sapphires are two different gemstones, but they are not they are both made from formation of a mineral known as corundum. the difference isthe elements that seep into the mineral corundum, the typical Ruby has significant traces of chromium giving it the red hue. The gemstones themselves are very hard, the only natural occurring stones that have a greater hardness than a sapphire is moissanite and of course diamonds. Looking at the "Mohs scale of mineral hardness" something like glass, which is typically made out of silica, has a greater hardness than iron, so technically because iron is softer than glass something like keys should not scratch your phones screen because the glass is a bit harder than iron, but glass has a very rigid structure which is its downfall. Iron though softer has a lot more give than the rigid glass and due to force (of impact) iron can scratch and break glass, just how water can cut through iron. Sapphire is significantly more hard than both iron and glass though its rigid it will not shatter like glass, but has the ability to "truly" scratch glass because of its greater hardness. On another note, labs have been able to create artificial sapphires that are no different than the naturally occurring ones that nature takes possibly millions of years to make, but the only difference is the lab sapphires are flawless and natural ones are flawed. So this means lab ones are more valuble? No. Natural sapphires are far more valuable than lab sapphires mainly because of their rarity. Even though the mineral compound is the same in lab and natural sapphires its supply and demand that determine the costs. lab sapphires take fractions of a fraction the time it takes nature to make a sapphire and its flawlessness cannot make up for that.



long story short i guess you can say blue, maybe red. idk if i have a favorite color honestly.


You forgot a few things, like how they're all actually corundums, and although you were right on the rubies, padparadscha are a name for the orange-pink ones, which is a rather funny name. The rest are called sapphires, and the rarest natural ones are the star sapphire/star rubies because the way of the crystal formation and its inclusions and the cabachon cut present a star in the center of the gem. some even display chatoyance (the cats eye effect). A lot of rubies aren't actually rubies, they're actually spinels.(a similar stone), the aluminum oxide family is kinda huge, and most of them get used in the abrasive industry, hence why Al-Ox papers and emery paper (also a name for the stone used in creating it) are some of the best abrasives. Which is kinda like diamonds. They aren't actually all that uncommon. It's the suppliers that enforce a false scarcity. Most aren't pretty though so they too get put towards use as abrasives.

I'm guilty of this. Though I seldom post my novella sized replies.
Whenever I start replying I end up writing half a book, then try to truncate it down to bearable levels. Then rewrite it. Then realize it's gotten twice as long as the original reply. Then rewrite it...

Then I finally stop worrying so damn much about what I'm trying to express and just type it out.

Needless to say, by the time I do get my reply posted the better part of an hour has gone by and whatever it was I wanted to say has likely been said already.

Also, I don't have a favourite color exactly. I prefer different colors or combinations of colors for different things. It's also depending on my daily mood.
Judging by my outfit and my lunch sitting in front of me today seems to be a red day, yesterday was yellow.

I write novels. Quite literally. (get it? )

But, yah... I'm rather verbose when I reply. With the exception of this reply.

I'm definitely a novel-post writer. (Also a proper novel writer, but that's a completely different issue!) However, my novel-posts always are on topic, rather than meandering words painting a story with nothing to do with the topic.

On the matter of my favorite color, it really depends. Rather than a single color of which I like many shades, I like specific shades of pretty much every color. This makes it impossible to give a nice, succinct answer like "blue." Furthermore, I don't seem to have one specific shade of one specific color that is my favorite; they tend to be loved almost equally. So I can't simply say something like "sapphire blue" or "a really specific shade of orange that's slightly red, like you see at sunset" (both of which are among my favorite colors). This would suggest that I'm one of those people who should give "rainbow" as their answer, except that I'm very specific about the shade of the color as well, so rainbow isn't quite right. This leaves me with listing all the actual shades.

My favorite color-shades are: wine colors (from burgundy to cranberry), softer/pastel pinks, the sunset orange mentioned above, copper, gold, spring and sage greens, teal, darker blues but especially French blue and sapphire blue, mauve, amethyst, redder purples especially pastel (like lavender) or dark (like plum), silver, metallic versions of most colors, slightly red mid-tone browns, and slightly off-whites like cream.
Which I'm more likely to choose tends to depend on the context; clothes vs. home deco vs. flowers vs. ink, etc.
