2021.12.06 02:43 shigogaboo [Qcrit] [2nd attempt] comedy/fantasy Cloaks and Casters 125k
Big thanks to all the suggestions on my first post. I pitched the schlocky jokes, trimmed the fat, fleshed out the stakes, and updated the comp to more modern(ish) novels. Any suggestions for further improvements are appreciated.
Dear Ms. Lady,
I’m happy to finally show off Cloaks and Casters, a slowly untangling mystery that puts comedy first, and fantasy second.
Set in Chicago, the story follows the icey Kahlie Hayes, the world’s most powerful mage. Forced into servitude by an enigmatic Arcane Council, she is working on uncovering how a gorgon became immortal when the Council forces her to take on an optimistic yet naive apprentice. The story is told by the unreliable narrator, and all-around smartass that is Kahlie’s sidekick, Jason Calloway. Jason is a regular human with a quick tongue, an ego, and a handful of enchanted items to keep his neck off any vampire’s dinner plans.
The three are then tasked to follow the clues as they’re led through several areas of magic society. They have to be careful, as navigating the politics of the vampire/werewolf peace accord can be tricky. As they hop from clue to clue, they’re hounded by an antagonistic hobgoblin named Flak Jack. He’s a Cheshire Cat like villain set on tapping into the powers of the god of death, Hades. Such a threat can bring about the end of the world, or, at the very least, throw a nuclear sized tantrum.
Cloaks and Casters is a completely finished novel that stands on its own, yet was written to include potentials for sequels and/or prequels. The story falls in at +125k words, and combines the tone of Douglas Adams’ Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy juxtaposed against a darker setting inspired from Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files.
As a little background about me, I’m a freelance writer who worked for a few years writing comics for the now defunct www.thenosemilk.com. I also did stand-up comedy for a few years, and was published in a book of poetry in my college days.

2021.12.06 02:43 Seraph1x Science and English Academy Hiring!
My hagwon is hiring 2 new full-time teachers due to rapid growth this year. We are hiring a full-time English teacher as well as a full-time Science teacher. Visa sponsorship is available.
About us: Our academy name is STEAM-I (Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics), and we are an international academy. Unlike many schools in Korea that claim to be international our academy actually is (a large portion of our students are Korean and either lived in another country or are preparing to). We are a kindergarten from the hours of 10:00am to 2:30 pm and a traditional hagwon from 2:30pm to 6:00pm. The school’s focus is on providing a curriculum to prepare students for international study. We currently have 8 teachers not including these new positions being hired. All of our teachers speak fluent English and have lived in other countries for portions of their lives. We are located in Ilsan city, which is west of Seoul. Ilsan is amazing, do some googling and you will see what I mean! We also have sister academies including a coding and science academy, and a weekend fun English academy.
English position: The English teacher will be responsible for primarily kinder age English courses and a few early elementary classes. Our classes are always activity based and we are looking for someone who is very active in the classroom and can make the kids laugh and have fun.
Science position: We are looking for someone with a broad range of knowledge in the sciences. We teach all subjects including biology, chemistry, physics, technology, and engineering. A teacher who is fun and able to perform many different experiments and explain the concepts to young children is ideal.
Mon – Fri, 9:00am – 6:00 pm. Never weekends unless you would like overtime pay at one of our sister academies. Maximum 6 classes a day, 45 min a class. You have break time throughout the day lunch provided by the academy.
Depends on experience as well as credentials. Starting pay is 2.2 mil if you are brand new. Flight is covered to Korea.
You may also choose if you would like an apartment to be provided or if you would like a housing allowance added to your pay.
10 days paid vacation 5 days summer, 5 days winter. (These are always given Mon – Fri so the vacation is actually 9 days long both in summer and winter!)
3 sick days per year paid, after that they are unpaid.
As soon as available. We would like both positions filled ASAP
Please send me a message here on reddit or send you information to our school email at [firstname.lastname@example.org](mailto:email@example.com)
Thanks for everyone's time and hope to here from some potential teachers soon!

2021.12.06 02:43 Crazytrixstaful Request: Memory of a music video
So I have this memory of watching a music video with an all female band. I can’t for the life of me remember their band name.
The video was set in front of a school I believe. It was very concrete centric. I think there were four members playing and singing, with equipment and instruments outside. It might have been raining.
The band may have also broken up. But I may have read that about another band. Getting old hurts the brain. Sad face.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
