    Because it is impolite to call a man a whore. The correct term is Jigalo. That probably isn't how you spell it, but whatever.

    What ? There are no Sci-Fi ABR plots. All of them of fantasy.

    And why does Sci-Fi mean that browns are out ? It is a perfectly normal choice of colour.

    No, it has dragons, magic and vampires. Completely fantasy.

    I'd say the Sovices definitely would come under the category of Sci-fi. And since they have a big role in FI... I'd say Nameless is right in it being sci-fi ish.

    Oh please... magic and vampires can easily be transitioned to sci-fi. Would you call FF8 a fantasy?

    Yes. It is called Final Fantasy, after all.

    But seriously, FF8 was mostly Fantasy, with like, bits of Sci-fi. That's not a good example.

    Fantasy is about magic (the impossible), and Sci-Fi is about future technology/science (the possible).

    The Sovices use magic. Therefore, they are fantasy.

    Since when has it been stated that the Sovices use magic? Why, I just looked at the ABR wiki, and what I gathered from that, is that they use nanomachines.

    Completely fantasy? I don't think so. Advanced technology might not equal sci-fi, but it is a staple of the genre. I'd say it's a little bit of both sci-fi and fantasy. The two genres can easily be mixed.

    A primitive could say that the Lord of the Rings is Sci-Fi because it has swords, which are advanced technology (for his time).

    ...There is such thing as Science Fantasy, you know. Star Wars is a case in point. It has both magic and super advanced technology. Steampunk is also considered Sci-Fi, or Science Fantasy if there are still fantasy elements in.

    ???????????
    No he couldn't.
    Swords were not advanced in the time period Tolkein wrote the Lord of the Rings.


    @V: Oh, lol. I though MM meant primitive as in a stupid person (don't ask why. I have no idea) XD
    A primative human would probably not be able to read it in the first place and be more amazed with the time-travel technology that would be needed to get him and the books together.
    But aside from that I see what you mean now.

    'I shall be pleased and proud to have been the first who completely enjoyed the fruits of his writing, just as he wished, for my only desire has been to have people reject and despise the false and nonsensical histories of the books of chivalry, which are already stumbling over the history of my true Don Quixote, and will undoubtedly fall to the ground.' -Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote (Edith Grossman)
