Very good, i was half expecting Blacks paper to say "DONT MESS WITH TIME TURNERS" although here its a stable time line while in HPMOR it involved recursive unstable time loops.

I have only recently started reading some of Scotts other articles, some lesswrong items and i also started the HPMOR book this week. Enjoying all of it so far.

Great! Rational literature is one hell of a rabbit hole.

Yea it certainly seems like it so far, I also picked up AI to Zombies. Any recommendations?

There is nothing better than Worm. But it's almost two million words, nearly every one of them heartbreaking.

From the comments: "Awesome story. It reminded me quite a bit of Worm."

I have an irrational reluctance to start Worm. I am afraid I'll enjoy it.

Everyone's favorite anarchist pops up as well.

I read a couple chapters of Worm. Does the plot stop sounding like your average "teenager finds out they're special, meets up with other cool special teenagers, epic fighting plus love story ensues" story?

Yes.

EDIT: no one in Worm is special.

Hubski doesn't mind bringing threads back from the dead, this one just struck me as funny.
