October 23rd, 2008 02:10 PMAn-chanA thousand babies, huh... This book was more like the type to make you want to beat puppies to death with a brick and a metal pipe. It had this boarding school where high school boys would tease the younger boys, because it was admitted. They'd use bucketfulls of crap, red-lead, boiling water, freezing water, their authority and their fists in the progress. Oh, and the dad of the protagonist was a crazy sadist. 'Nuff said.
I felt really happy a moment ago because I found three new places to look from. It took me about ten minutes to realize what a pain it is to look from so many places, even more so because I can't find any even remotely mod-ish person from one of the forums. Oh, and you shouldn't forget ffnet. *sigh* But every bad fic I find just boosts my will to do this damn thing, however troublesome and nerve-breaking it might be!
*lifts an eyebrow* So, I'd assume you're having fun. Ekeshum and Bamachi, huh. (Man, I love that spying feature that shows people's current activity ) That's gotta be one intelligent and sensible conversation!
October 23rd, 2008 01:50 PMPost Office BuddyYeah, I know how you feel about this being a pain in the ass. Just looking at this forum frustrates me to no end. There are so many fics out there that deserve to be locked right away, but aren't because they find some little way to just barely exceed the minimum requirements.
I also know how much it sucks to write a book report on a book you hate. I remember how, in high school, I had to write a report on Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt. That book made me want to shoot a thousand babies, all in the face.
October 23rd, 2008 12:55 PMAn-chanYou know, this is really going to be a pain in the ass. I'm just so sure the result will be worth all this searching and thinking and planning and reviewing and whatnot that it doesn't really bother me that much. Besides, right now I'm having a peaceful time at school so I have nothing better to do. And I really like chatting to you guys
Although, I should be writing a stupid book review about a book I didn't want to read in the first place. It kind of fits this archive-planning-thing and all, but I really don't feel like doing it. I don't know if I have enough good stuff to say about that book when all anyone ever did in it was to tease and beat up other people. :\
October 23rd, 2008 12:43 PMPost Office Buddylol, you're not spamming me. I had already placed character development in a category of its own. I intend to define it further with character holes and whatnot.
October 23rd, 2008 12:39 PMAn-chanReadability probably is the easiest one to define. The scale must have something about characters, but how do you define a good character? Although, you could adjust the plot criteria to fit with the characters. You know, originality and existence of holes of the character All right, maybe I'll just let you do it the way you see fit and stop spamming you.
October 23rd, 2008 12:26 PMPost Office BuddyI'm thinking something along the lines of originality, plausibility, and the existence of holes. It's still a work in progress though. I think I already had the readability category defined well enough, so at least that one won't need any more work for a while...
October 23rd, 2008 12:14 PMAn-chanHmm... It's afternoon there, isn't it?
Aww, man, you don't have any school tomorrow and I have, what, school from 8 AM to 3 PM and then my Japanese lesson from 5.30 PM to 7 PM...
Haha, I'm eating chocolate and taffy on the moment. They go really well together, and with reading
Good luck on that scale. It's not an easy job, I believe, as there are many things that have to be taken into consideration. I wouldn't know how to make a decent scale for rating plots, for one.
October 23rd, 2008 11:44 AMPost Office Buddylol, my thinking exactly. I think I'm going to sit down and start working on my grading scale. Well, after I grab a bite to eat first, of course
October 23rd, 2008 10:15 AMAn-chanGH is one of those games that easily suck you in and make you forget about the time. Many "simple" games are like that, like, say, teris or something of the like. I once played tetris for something like nine hours straight, because I couldn't stop anymore... I was eight at the time. After that, it took me six years to play the damn game again And I've noticed that by boyfriend can play GH for hours. It doesn't last that long when it's about me, because I can't even get trough a song on expert, as my fingers are a wee bit too short to reach the orange button. Moreover, I once broke my pinky finger and the lower joint in it is a bit stiff. It's a wonder I can even play the clarinette...
Gosh, you're giving me an uncontrollable urge to play Guitar Hero, even though I literally suck at the game. It's still a good game... But we don't own it, only a friend of my boyfriend's does and he lives in a different city. Drats!
And I thought Xanthine was a guy, too... But that misbelief didn't last me long. That avatar was very fooling!
I should start doing something useful now...
October 23rd, 2008 07:57 AMPost Office Buddylol, I didn't realize Xanthine was a girl until I chanced a glance at her gender info. That picture along with the name "Jax Malcom" threw me off for quite some time lol.
Anyway, forgot to respond yesterday as I was trying to 5 star Through the Fire and Flames on expert last night. I finally got to spend time with my girlfriend, and we ended up going to the store and stuff, which resulted in me buying Guitar Hero 2. So now I have around 170 songs or something to play, including what I downloaded for Guitar Hero 3. Too bad most of the early venues are complete crap (Slow Ride anyone?)
I think my roommate is returning tonight with Rock Band, so I will probably be completing that career tonight. I hear 5 stars are easier to get on that game than GH, so I'll just have to see.
October 22nd, 2008 10:53 AMAn-chanI suck at Guitar Hero. I have too short fingers for that and for real guitar (but that's just a lame excuse for always losing to my boyfriend in the damn game).
Have a good game!
Oh, and the funniest part of that one was that they kept on calling her a "he". Oh, that girl just cracks me up!
October 22nd, 2008 10:46 AMPost Office BuddyLol, I remember reading that one. I believe Astinus locked that one lol. Seems to be a trend of mods locking her posts XD
And now, to Guitar Hero 3 with random checking on PC
October 22nd, 2008 10:44 AMAn-chanYeah, and they don't teach how to use commas in English at school. And, I noticed, a lot of my comma mistakes are there because if you'd use them that way while writing Finnish, you'd be eternally banned from school.
I'll make the corrections on that chapter. Thanks a lot for reviewing it. The more text, the better review... Also, thanks for the praise you gave me My main goal in this life is to make people laugh by what I write, so I'm happy that I have succeeded a bit. Darn those commas, though.
I also found something possibly even more random where she told she got sad because of Xanthine's review and someone even encouraged her to overlook the review, but I lost that one already so no link :<
October 22nd, 2008 10:35 AMPost Office BuddyOMG, I laughed out loud at that. She really does get excited about romance thingys, doesn't she?
Anyway, finished my read of your fiction. Don't be daunted by how much there is, a lot of it was commas and spelling mistakes, which even native speakers of English have trouble with.
