So, perusing some old stuff on the Interwebs, I found a link to a site called I Write Like. It does a statistical analysis of a writing sample (the longer the better, apparently) to figure out what popular author you write most like. (Spoiler: If you submit internet comments or blog posts, it will almost certainly tell you you write like Cory Doctorow.)

Out of curiosity, I started feeding it the stories I've written here. Apparently, my Nniol stories are written in a style similar to that of Dan Brown; my Grunt stories come across as flavored with Arthur C. Clarke; and my first tale here, of VA Sills and the Hans Asperger, resembled the writing style of Isaac Asimov. Heady company indeed!

I thought it was fun. Anyone else want to give it a shot?

Just did it, myself.

For Veleen Takor, my new Romulan Alt, her first story introducing her has a style like James Fenimore Cooper's, the story where she sides with the Federation and becomes involved with Section 31 has a flavor of Dan Brown, my piece on Mirror Lelouch resembles the style of Jonathan Swift, and my very first Lit challenge seems to resemble stories from David Foster Wallace.

I'm assuming that that's pretty good.

I put mine up, a brief flashback into the mind of my resident lunatic, Cagalli.

Cookies to anyone who gets the cultural reasons I named the story what I did (and there is more than simply being ominous and suggesting this time will not be pleasant for Alyosha). It's a play on something...let's see if anyone can figure it out.
A reference to the Black Sea in Russia?

Very interesting story.

Never realized your Cagalli had that much mass.

On another note, that I Write Like site says that your story has a similar style to those by Arthur C. Clarke.

Nope. Hmm...maybe it's not that well known outside of Russia...

I doubt it's a reference to a Black Mass Maybe it will become clearer on reading the entry
