To RWBY Fanfiction Writers: What are your goals and why do you do what you do?

There are many forms of this question I'd like to ask.

Is there a specific reason as to why you write RWBY fanfiction?

Do you write fanfiction for multiple pieces of content and have simply added RWBY to that list?

What got you started writing? Was the decision to write easy or confusing?

What sort of writing process do you use?

Are you predominantly a creator of original stories and simply use fanfiction as a way to test out new techniques, styles, and concepts before adapting them for your real work?

From a writing stand point, what are you goals that you hope to attain? Publishing, or do you intend to keep it mostly private?

Some of you may know this, but many of you may not. I have been writing for a very long time. I started when I was 10, and will soon be 21. I know most new authors start with fanfiction, but I've only delved into fanfiction in the last 3-4 years as a way to test my skills. I tend to keep my real work to myself for a long period of time as I hone my craft and polish it as a final product, so I've been using fanfiction as a way to test the waters and see if anyone liked my style. I am honestly surprised by how many of you like my work. There's at least 100 of you. Not a big number, but to me that's like winning the Powerball. I don't expect anything major, so that small number of readers is simply astounding to me.

I've been constantly writing for these last 11 years, and for the last 6-8 years I've been testing out a fantasy story that I hope to publish by the end of the year, if not sooner. Hopefully. That is my goal as a writer. In the meantime, I've been equally dedicated to delivering RWBY fanfiction. I'm sure you've noticed, but I don't write fanfiction for any other series. Something about Remnant feels like the worlds in my fantasy universe, and it makes it easy for me to adapt and mold it into any shape I feel I desire.

It's because of this relative "ease" that I feel towards Remnant that I am curious about my fellow writers and am compelled to learn how your brains tick. Writing is a fever that can't be cured, I know, so let's share and revel in our communal madness.

[PSA/Article] Introducing Grams Bitball: Darknet Lottery

Hello everyone,

ever since Operation Onymous, I have been working on an idea to get the tor project more donations. There was lots of rumors that Tor had been hacked and de-anonimized. Even though these rumors have turned out to be false and Tor is still secure, I think the Tor Project needs as much money as possible to help keep it that way. So I created my new site to give incentive to the people who use tor the most to donate their extra bitcoins.

I present to you BitBall : Darknet Lotto on Tor


How it works

BitBall is a bitcoin lottery based on the US Powerball lottery. The winning numbers drawn twice a week for the normal US based lottery Powerball will be the same winning numbers for bitball. Since the jackpot for bitball is extremely less than powerball and we will sell fewer tickets, Bitball will only use the first four numbers drawn from the powerball numbers. If you match those numbers in any order players will win the Bitball jackpot. The game play works like this...

  • Players can buy tickets for .01 bitcoins
  • Each ticket has 4 numbers on it between 1 and 59. (either chosen by random or picked by the player)
  • If those 4 numbers match the first 4 numbers of the powerball drawing the player wins the Bitball jackpot.
  • The Jackpot will start at 15 bitcoins and go up 2 bitcoins every time there is no winner.
  • If a player matches 3 of the powerball number they will win .1 bitcoins.
  • If more than 1 player wins the jackpot it will be split amount the winners.
  • Drawings are every Wednesday and Saturday night at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time.
  • Ticket buying will be suspended 1 hour before a drawing and resume 1 hour after.

You can also find these informations at this article on DeepDotWeb or our subreddit /r/grams

Winnings Claim

We made the winnings claim proccess easy. Winners can enter their ticket hashcode in the claim form and will be prompted for a bitcoin address. For the first couple of drawings I will be manually approving winnings payouts to check for fraud or bugs. During that time it could take up to 24 hours for winners to get their winnings. After that it will be an automatic process and winners will have their bitcoins within 20 minutes!

All the proceeds get donated to the TOR Project.

The donations will be given to the Tor Project once a week and displayed on the Bitball homepage. To prove the profits will be donated I already donated 2 BTC this week for the launch. You can verify the the transaction of the donation on the home page's donations section. I know a transaction hash doesn't prove I donated it, but anyone who doubts me can email the tor project and ask if they received it. I made this donation, and will make all donations, under the email grams@lelantos.org. I always see reddit and forum posts from users asking what to do with their extra bitcoins. I think this will be an incentive for user to donate their spare bitcoins to TOR and maybe win big.

Grams Connection

The site is separate from Grams but if it takes off, as I think it will, I will be adding support for Grams' users to buy tickets directly from the bitcoins in their Grams' account. This will mean instant tickets without having to wait for blockchain confirmations. This will also make it easy to spend the extra bitcoins a user's Grams account.

Adaptive Process

I just came up with the ticket prices, jackpot amounts , number of balls in play. These numbers may change depending on how many factors during the first few weeks. If a massive amount of tickets are sold and there is a couple jackpot winners every drawing I may need to use 5 balls instead of four. On the other hand if there are no winners for many drawings I may reduce the balls in play to 3. If changes like these are made it will be during the 2 hours of suspended ticket buying in between drawings. I will never change these factors after tickets for a drawing have been purchased.


Thanks for your time,

Suggestion for a simpler random number choice

Why not just do something like a SHA-256 of the "volume of shares traded on the NASDAQ" on the day of the draw?

It seems like there would be a lot of things like that which would be easier for everyone to follow and verify on their own, as compared to the current method.

(Hell, you could even use a hash of winning Lotto or PowerBall numbers. Yes, I know, you are worried that it will make it seem like this is a lottery... but, really, that is a damn good public source of random numbers.)

Another day at the Hellhole

Now, I know that some people would love to win millions from the lottery or even a few hundred from a scratch off ticket, I sometimes pay a few dollars for things like this, and while I never win (got $4 from a $2 Powerball ticket a few weeks ago, that was cool), I just get tired and bored of seeing it at work.

I'm sure a lot of us who work in a gas station or other place that sells a lottery ticket or scratch off is kind of tired of it. The desperate, needy, people who are selfish and push in line, claw at others, just because there's an hour before the machine closes and they just HAVE to get their tickets, there's one thing I will probably never understand.

My usual transactions with lottery people are the typical "I'll take the winning numbers for the $300 million MegaMillion/Powerball." Another reason I hate the lottery system is that is feeds the greed of people and it sickens me. Now, I don't have a problem with those who play for the hell of it, as I do the same but not to an extent of my usual lottery harpies. If I had the power to procure the winning numbers for any lottery game or the knowledge of which scratch offs were big winners, I wouldn't be working at a gas station, I can guarantee that much right there.

However, the moment you glance at another customer's ticket and notice your numbers are each one number higher than theirs, that is no cause for you to flat out punch the lady in the face and call her a cheater and demand she gives you her ticket, that's when you've gone too far. It's like watching lions feed at a poorly maintained zoo. Honestly, I don't know how some of these people can function in their daily lives without some sort of leash or protective suit.

Let's say there's a daily lottery. Person A buys 365 tickets for one drawing on one day. Person B buys one ticket each day for a year. Do they have different chances of winning?

Let's pretend it's like Powerball - the drawing is a string of 5 numbers plus 1 other number.

My brain says Person A has a higher chance. But it seems like Person B has "more" chances. Help me, mathematicians!

EDIT: Absolutely fascinating range of responses! Thanks r/askscience! You did not disappoint.

Do you have any predictions about an unlikely event that will happen sometime in the next 3 years?

Your comment will be timestamped so everyone in the future will know you predicted it before it happened. And if you're wrong we can mock you in the future.

-The winner of an election? -A major natural disaster? -Winning Powerball numbers? -A big company merger? -The winners of a major sporting event -A company going bankrupt? -A disease cured? -A celebrity marriage? -A new pope? -The value of bitcoin?

Try and be specific so people in the future can be sure if you were correct or not.

[Contest] Powerball

Ok in honor of my cakeday, I want to gift you! My husband is an avid powerball player and always plays 5 strings of numbers. All you have to do is guess what the 5 power ball numbers on his most recent ticket are. Powerball numbers run 1-50, the person with the most correct numbers wins! To be clear, you have to pick 5 numbers 1-50 to enter the contest. Prize will be awarded 3/8/13 and will be around $20. You may only enter once, duplicate entries will void all entries. You also must have gifted at least 1 person. You can gift anyone up until the 8th, as long as you gifted someone. Price of the gift doesn't matter either, just the gifting itself.


  • The drawing for the ticket I have in front of me was 2/13/13, Montana powerball
  • This was a non-winning ticket so the powerball number on that day's drawing does NOT appear on the ticket.
  • Numbers may repeat

The Contest has ended and the winner has been gifted.

Code review request for a beginner.

Here is my code:


#!/usr/bin/python def list_of_tickets(): list_of_tickets = [] j = 0 print "How many ticket do you have?" number_of_tickets = int(raw_input(">")) while j < number_of_tickets: print "Enter ticket %s" %(j+1) list_of_tickets.append(number_input()) j = j+1 return list_of_tickets def number_input(): i = 1 ticket_list = [] while i < 6: print "Enter number %s" %i number = int(raw_input(">")) if number < 1 or number > 59 or number in ticket_list: print "Please input a unique number between 1 and 59" else: ticket_list.append(number) i = i+1 while len(ticket_list)<6: print "Enter the powerball:" powerball = int(raw_input(">")) if powerball < 1 or powerball > 35: print "Please input a unique number between 1 and 35" else: ticket_list.append(powerball) return ticket_list def winning_input(): print "Enter the winning numbers:" i = 1 ticket_list = [] while i < 6: print "Enter number %s" %i number = int(raw_input(">")) if number < 1 or number > 59 or number in ticket_list: print "Please input a unique number between 1 and 59" else: ticket_list.append(number) i = i+1 while len(ticket_list)<6: print "Enter the powerball:" powerball = int(raw_input(">")) if powerball < 1 or powerball > 35: print "Please input a unique number between 1 and 35" else: ticket_list.append(powerball) return ticket_list def power_play(): print "Did you select the power play? (Y/N)" power_play = raw_input(">") if power_play[0] == 'Y': power_play = True else: power_play = False return power_play def validator(list_of_tickets, winning_ticket): winlist = [] for i in list_of_tickets: win_count = 0 powerball = "" for j in i[:-1]: if j in winning_ticket[:-1]: win_count = win_count + 1 if i[-1] == winning_ticket[-1]: powerball = "p" if i[-1] != winning_ticket[-1]: powerball = "n" results = str(win_count)+powerball winlist.append(results) return winlist #todo: make the answers from validator match up to prizes def prize_calc(results, powerplay): prizes = {'0p':4, '1p':4, '2p':7, '3n':7, '3p':100, '4n':100, '4p':10000, '5n':1000000, } for i in results: if i in prizes: if powerplay == True: print prizes[i]*2 else: print prizes[i] elif i == '5p': print "YOU WON THE JACKPOT!!!" else: print "Sorry, this wasn't a winner" print "Powerball checker v.0.1" list_of_tickets = list_of_tickets() winning_ticket = winning_input() power_play = power_play() results = validator(list_of_tickets, winning_ticket) prize_calc(results,power_play) 


I suspect that I could have done a better job with variable naming. I am specifically looking for any feedback as to structure. I know it makes sense to me, but was this an efficient way to structure my program? Is it readable? Does anyone have any suggestions for new features in the next iteration?

Thanks for your time, and any feedback! I appreciate it!

Powerball Jackpot is over US$500,000,000; odds of winning about 1:175,000. How much would I win if I played every number?

Edit - missed some zeroes in the title. Actual odds are 1:175,000,000.

Note the payout schedule below - you can win with a single number plus the powerball, and in a variety of other ways.

Assume, for the sake of argument, that no one else hits the winning number (and that I can find a licensed retailer who will sell me 175,000,000 tickets). Also assume that I ignore the "PowerPlay" because I want to keep my investment to $175M. Edit: Investment = $350M, because tickets are $2 each.

The PowerBall rules govern payouts like this: Matches Prize

Powerball only $4 1 number plus PB $4 2 numbers plus PB $7 3 numbers; no PB $7
3 numbers plus PB $100
4 numbers; no PB $100
4 numbers plus PB $10,000 5 numbers; no PB $1,000,000 5 numbers plus PB Jackpot

For those not familiar with the PowerBall lottery, you pick five numbers from 1-59, and a PowerBall from 1-35. For the non-power balls, you're drawing from one pot - a number cannot appear twice. The PowerBall machine contains a separate collection of balls, so a number can be a nonPowerBall and a PowerBall.

I'm not smart enough to write a simulation to figure it out ... can Reddit help?

Math geniuses of Reddit: Powerball Lottery is at $245 million, and my coworkers are discussing probabilities. Settle this for us.

The discussion is around whether it's better to pick your own numbers or let the terminal randomly pick the numbers for you.

My argument: The chances are equal either way. The numbers come out randomly, and have no memory of the past (i.e if I roll a 4 on a dice five times, The chances of me getting a 4 the sixth time are just as equal as the first five times). So if you play 2-4-6-8-10-12 every week, or get a randomly new number every time, they both have an equal chance of winning.

Her argument: If I consistently play the "2-4-6-8-10-12" (just an example) combination every week, MY selection stays consistent. And if my numbers stay the same every week, they just have to match the winning numbers. BUT, If I let the machine pick my numbers, the universe has to match one set of random numbers (machine picked) to another set of random numbers (the winning ones), which makes it twice as hard to win.

So, statisticians and probabilities experts. What do you think? How do "chances of winning" apply to the above two situations?

PS - We already know how ridiculously slim the chances are of actually winning and how it's a "volunteer tax" and a complete waste of money. We're just discussing odds.

What should I do? Do I turn my Dad in?

Just to set the situation: I'm working up the courage to leave. I love my parents and it's the only think keeping me from leaving at the moment. My Dad was the PO of the congregation up until they changed the title to COBE and now he's the congregation secretary, and my Mom is a regular pioneer and probably one of the biggest prudes you'll ever meet.

I'm not exactly sure how to approach this as I have proof my Dad has been looking at porn (at home and at work) as well as reading some pretty kinky fiction ( homo, adultery, pedo, incest, etc ). At first I thought it might have been a onetime lapse in judgement, but I've been checking his history pretty regularly and this has been happening for over a year.

The other thing is he seems to be buying lottery tickets. I've never seen the stubs, but when checking up on his history looking for evidence of porn, he has been checking the winning numbers for the Powerball lotto every week.

Last week, my Mom found a receipt that included line items for lotto tickets, and I had to listen to a boldfaced lie that that must have been part of the receipt from the customer before him. I'm not sure what she'll do if she finds out the truth.

I need an outside party giving me some advice here.
