Weren't you in Game of Thrones?
I'm not sure about any Game of Thrones connection, but I got "Duck of Death" from the movie Unforgiven.
Providing rednecks with sunblock since 1996.

I once met a man who claimed to be a genius, then boasted that he was a member of "Mesa".

Think for yourself.

Mine is from an idea I've had for a short story (which I keep telling myself I'll write someday, but probably won't) about a man whose lifelong dream is to be able to play the piano, but he can't because he's a dwarf -- his legs are too short to reach the pedals, and his arms and fingers aren't long enough to play the keys properly.

Someone sent me this to "inspire" me - but all I could think of was your story... maybe this will help you...

There was also a guest star on an episode of "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" who was a dwarf... about four foot one or so, if memory serves.  When I looked her up on IMDb, it turned out that she was also a piano player.  There was another dwarf who played the piano as well that I read about.

All of this basically lets the air out of my story idea.  It probably wasn't a very good idea in the first place.  Others pointed out flaws with it as well that I hadn't even thought about.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to deflate the idea.  Still has potential - especially from a dark angle!

If a perfect story were possible, it would be the best story ever written. All stories have plot holes. Sometimes minor, other major, but they exist everywhere.
If you want, I could volunteer as a beta reader for your story, and maybe even give you ideas.

Let's get back on topic, please.

My user name stems from this, my first name is Albert, everybody calls me Bert, apart from my wife who calls me Albie. I do everything from my home so, hence Bert at Bert's I was going to put "house" at the end, but it seemed to long.  Sad aren't I.

Until seeing this, I had never even registered the extra "t" in the middle, and had always read it as Bertaberts.

Hi Shankly.

I was recently roaming youtube soccer videos, and re-lived Mark Viduka putting 4 past Liverpool for Leeds.

Can you guess I'm Australian.  ;D

Isn't that strange, I wondered why people did that. I thought they were just being humorous. Well it seems you are in very good company, in your error.

I also didn't notice the "t", until I was replying to another user about one of bertatberts's posts and decided to copy/paste his name, just to be on the safe side.
