    Summaries of the books are on the linked page.

    Ender's Game is a book written by Orson Scott Card (1985), based on a short story that he wrote in 1976. (He wrote it at the circus.) It's in the science fiction genre.

    Ender's Game and its sequels (Ender in Exile, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind), plus its companion novel Ender's Shadow and its sequels (Shadow of the Hegemon, Shadow Puppets, and Shadow of the Giant) have spawned a culture. People find a comfort in the characters who are ostracized for being intelligent and having that intelligence singled out by the teachers. Also, many times, teenagers who have never enjoyed reading read Ender's Game and then proceed to read the rest of Card's novels.

    As long as I'm here, though: Wikipedia

    In other fandoms and American culture, references to Card's work can be found. The Futurama movie Bender's Game shares a title, but not the plot, for example.

    I don't want to push people to read it, so if you want to, go right ahead. If not, no big loss. I love them, of course. Since, you know...I worship Andrew Wiggin, and have done so for the past six years.

    Yes, POB. It was a joke. I have many friends who wonder why the hell I wander around with the same book in my pocket all the time. So...perhaps I should have added a ":D" to my post?

      Lol, I knew it was a joke. I've been meaning to read it for a while though, but I always forget whenever I'm at my local library *proceeds to write "check out Ender's Game" on his arm.* Lol, kinda funny that these people were ostracized in the book and you jokingly ostracized me. Parrallels are funny like that XD

      *insert cookie cutter Firefox is better than IE here*

      Opera is nice too, so is chrome.

      I like them all, except IE.

        Beware, though. Your library might not have it.

        And I'm covetting my six copies. *hisses*

        Actually, I have to use IE to be on the forums, because Firefox doesn't work. I can't edit my posts in Firefox, which is bad, because without the option to edit posts, I can't mod. At all.

            True, but my library is a part of a network of librarys throughout my state. So if my local library doesn't have one, then one in, say, Lansing or Holt might. All I need to do then is place a request on it and my library receives it in like 3-6 days. If nothing else, I live like a half hour away from a Scheullers and fifteen minutes from a Best Books. :D

            My computer won't let me open Firefox at all. I even tried a clean install and it still glitches up like crazy. I keep getting this error saying that the process is already running, which I know it's not because I check the damned processes. I even restart my computer, but to no avail. So that means that the process is both invisible and invincible. NOTHING CAN KILL IT! JUST LIKE DA TERMINATOR!

            EDIT: Ninja'd by two people... AAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH! WHY MUST ALL THESE TRAINERS USE BARBOACHES WHEN I'M TRAINING MY ELECTRIKE?!?!?

              You mean we use Geodudes while you train Pikachu?
              EPIC FAIL :D

              Pikachu used Thundershock!
              It's Super Effective!
              But it missed!
              It doesn't effect Geodude...
              Geodude fainted!
              Pikachu is poisoned by Effect Spore!

              Are you on drugs? I know that this thread is random, but you just took the cake and ate it too.

                    Awww, you people... You've ninja'd each other so eagerly you've written several pages again. In one night. And I went to sleep real late. Do you actually wait that I go offline befre you start to go nuts? :laugh:

                    Astinus: try Opera, then. The newest IE is starting to be usable, but otherwise they're just good for nothing. I use Opera and it works just fine. Then again, my Firefox works fine, too, so...

                    Xanthine: omgomgomg I'm so happy!!!!!!!!111 I luv u so much!!!!11

                    Dark Lakitu: HAH! I got 99/99 p from my book review! AND I'M NOT EVEN A NATIVE!!!!111 But then again, our standards might be a bit lower. Well, anyway, I only had two spelling/grammar mistakes in it and I didn't even lose points even though it was 200 words too long. Maybe my teacher didn't notice. I dunno.

                    I just saw literally the weirdest dream ever last night. In that dream, I somehow got teleported into some strange forest by a lake, where Astinus's younger brother found me and I found out Astinus actually lives in Belgium. And that there is a water tram line in Belgium that passes trough all the lakes, but it goes so near the summer houses built on the shores of the lakes that it kills several young children in a year by drowning them when they're swimming. Oh, and then there were some cereals and I got wet because I was swimming with my clothes on. Then this werid woman dressed me up in some weir costume because I couldn't use wet clothes. She gave me a Hello Kitty mug, too. The dream also had something about Hiroshima, but I don't want to remember that. I don't even know how it got from Belgium to Japan.

                    ...So, who's insane, huh?

Oh, and then there were some cereals and I got wet because I was swimming with my clothes on. Then this werid woman dressed me up in some weir costume because I couldn't use wet clothes. She gave me a Hello Kitty mug, too. The dream also had something about Hiroshima, but I don't want to remember that. I don't even know how it got from Belgium to Japan.

                    ...So, who's insane, huh?
                    O.o

                    Insane dreams don't count. Now if you had actually did that, then yes.

                    I am now a zombie fresh out of my Calculus test. And confound you all for posting so frakking much while I was away.

                    Seriously though, I actually want to do a crossover fic between all major video games with the plot of Kingdom Hearts as the base. How epic would that be? I mean good lord, Final Fantasy characters+Sonic+Mario+Spyro+Crash Bandicoot+Ratchet & Clank+Snake+Donkey Kong+Master Chief+Samus+Megaman+all other good guys vs. heartless/nobody Covenant, Sephiroth, Sigma, Cortex, Dark Master, Dr. Robotnik, Ridley, and lord knows how many others. It would be a three hundred thousand page masterpiece of epic and win!

                    You guys keep posting while I was either asleep or in classes. =O

                    I saw Jax and Astinus made Mystery Theater 3000. At first I thought "oh gods no, making fun of other fics," but then the rules say when you post a fic, it's your fic. I was then okay with it. ^^; I might put Destiny's Tricks in it later...now I have to go to class! =O

                    *goes off to my class *

                      You guys need to stop posting while I'm in school! GAH! Whatever. I'm currently being crowded by my three annoying cousins who I babysit. And a cat.

                      I've played Myst. I was like seven, and I didn't make it past the second part though.

                      I'd write that. I'd so totally write that. Or read it. I'd so totally read that. Oh, and you forgot some random trainer in the good guys and Giovanni in the bad guys. Giovanni is definitely the best bad guy the pokemon series has ever had, right?

                        If I had listed every single protagonist in every single video game ever made, I would have been here for days. I tagged some catch-alls on the ends of those lists, so hypothetically I did include Kirby. ;)

                          Yeah...but Kirby belongs on the awesome list. I mean, he's better than DK, or whoever. You didn't even need to list EVERY protagonist, but only some major ones. AND KIRBY IS MAJOR. VERY MAJOR!!!
                          KIRBY IS IMPORTANTLY SPECIAL. HE PWNS EVERYONE!!!


                          Anyway, MST is...very, very strange. I dunno how you guys could replicate that with Pokémon FANFICTIONS, but that's okay. I want to see now.

                            Ogod. If my fic weren't two chapters long, I'd submit it. XD *totally not chickening out*

                            My only regret is that I didn't think of this first!

                            And on that note, new questions:

                            In the PMD universe, presuming humans did at some point exist there... what exactly happened that got rid of them? And how long ago did it happen?

                            And...

                            Do multiple "Pokemon Worlds" exist in canon?

                            Alright, this one needs a little clarifying. What I'm looking for here is if the various mangas, anime, games, etc. are all different ways of looking at the same world, or whether each one is a world unto itself. Obviously the characters differ slightly in each one, but are the worlds the stories take place in different enough to be considered separate?

                            And finally...

                            Should ACC replace Astinus as mst3k host after the end of the next season?

                            I thought not. *sigh*

                              In the PMD universe, presuming humans did at some point exist there... what exactly happened that got rid of them? And how long ago did it happen?

                              ALTHOUGH I have never played PMD, I want to give a half-assed, goofy answer.

                              ... Yes, a catastrophic event from a bazillion eons ago wiped out the human race! You see, Dialga went Primal for a first time that no one really knows of except other super-special people... and it was the human race's fault. ONCE again, they were screwing with time (something about a "machine"), and Dialga went Primal and KEELED THEM DEAD.

                              BUT, in all seriousness...

                              Do multiple "Pokemon Worlds" exist in canon?

                              For the sake of my sanity, I always treat various parts of a fictional idea seperate, overall; I keep the games, Manga, and Anime seperate from each other when I look at them; although if I make a story that isn't heavy in Pokemon-world settings, I have a habit of taking certain elements from each one (such as the shrinking 'ball I remember from the anime) and fit them in where they make some form of sense.

                              I guess in a way, each canon is an alternate universe of the other canons that we know of. At least, that is how I look at such things.

                              It does in "Nothing, Everything." No, I'm serious. I"m always harking how "Nothing, Everything" is a mixture of both anime and game elements. Besides my usal, "oh, it's cause Ash and company hadn't gone far yet," my mind just suddenly thought of a story that can pull both elements together.

                              For my other fics though, I seperate game canon from anime and manga canon. Those medias have different ways of how the world works.

                                Yes, they do. They're alternate universes, some further ahead in time than others. The gameverse is one place, with the game's characters and their methods of dealing with evil teams. The animeverse is another (I mean seriously, how the heck is the Battle Frontier in Kanto?) with Ash, May and the TR trio. The mangaverse is in yet another realm. Each of them have somewhat fundamental differences in them and the way the world works in them. The lasting proof, in the end, is that the evil teams can't be defeated more than once in very similar ways. No. And some games are in different universes to other games. For example, Emerald is in an alternate universe a couple of years after Ruby and Sapphire, as the Battle Frontier is bigger, and Steven has given up Hoenn's most coveted place for rocks. Then there's the fact that gyms and championship are worked differently. In the games, the Elite Four is it. In the manga and anime, the Elite Four are just a bunch of elite trainers. The tounament is what matters in becoming champion. I could keep going on about differences in characters and people, but my pinky is starting to strain from reaching for that tiny backspace button. And that was the largest paragraph I have ever written on this forum. Even my fanfic's paragraphs can't contend. :D
