    I am slowly going back into my habit of looking for crappy fics to review. I don't like reviewing good ones for whatever reason, lol.

    Likewise. I can't wait to have my very own electric/ground fish... shoe... thing. :D And my own gear-creatures, and my own animate ice cream cones...

    I am now imagining Bino blowing a bunch of bubbles at Chicken-Feet, resulting in Chicken-Feet shrieking in pain like a little girl.

    I got an 80% by sort of going with all of my cats as a group. I intend to test them individually sometime, as well. I wouldn't be surprised if Cheez (and possibly also Eva) got a score comparable to your cat's. X3

    Oh, and I am quite amused that this exists.

    Hey, Astinus! I see you changed the Fanfiction Archive section around. Yay! :D Just wondering though, you don't mind adding a few finished fics in there? I know three chaptered fics so far that got done: Artifical, Gary Stu's Unpredictable Adventures, and my fic. There are also quite a few one shots from the One Shot section in the Fanfiction Index, so maybe those can be added too. If you feel one shots don't need to be added though, that's fine. If you like, I can add some finished fics in the Fanfiction Archive if I'm allowed to. Thanks in advance if you're fine with this!

    Yeah, weirdly enough, there's no links. No one actually posted the drama. I found out about it via a chat whose log I couldn't save because it was on IRC. :( At the risk of the person in question finding out that I'm talking about it/aware of it, spoiler tag!

    Spoiler:
    So, yeah. One of the participants of the writing contest who's also a member of the BBS got a little flaily -- a little, not like a huge drama/wank war or anything -- over the fact that we wouldn't give him voice in the BBS's IRC channel, though we gave a number of other regulars that privilege. (Voice is, in itself, just a status symbol because we don't actually use it for anything. It just says you've been a good member who didn't do anything to piss us off.)

    He then went on to say that it's like the writer's emblem. He thought he deserved it (because he participated/placed in some of the writing contests or something), but staff didn't give it to him. Guess he never thought to ask? Although with voice, he can't really ask because it's just something we did to reward good behavior. Until there were complaints, of course.


    And good luck at work~!

    As a note, I had a cup of coffee about ten minutes ago. Starbucks insta-coffee, with maybe three sugars. And my liquid tolerance has been lulzy since I left college, so I'm right now insanely hyper. You should've seen me the first time I tried real Long Island iced teas. I had two of them, and I was to the "vomiting and regretting everything ever" stage a couple hours later. Evidently, it's genetic that alcohol tolerance reaches a certain point and then plummets because the day after, as I was suffering from a hangover, my brother regaled me of stories about when he was a dumbass with alcohol, too. Point is, strong coffee + me = WHEEEEEEEEEEEE~!

    Even if it's just a lulzy one cup.

    Quote:
    And I swear to God, if you make the strawberry pound cake, I am getting some.
    Okay! For some reason, my roomies' dad keeps buying boxes of strawberries – like, more than any of us actually eat. Right when they're ripe. Which makes me go ;_; because I know I should really do something with them to help preserve them (like eat my share), but I keep forgetting they're there. And I get picky about strawberries, too, so if they get to the mushy stage where they turn a little gray, I stop wanting to touch them (even if they're still technically okay).

    Tl;dr: strawberries. ;_; I love them, but I need to use them more often.

    This one was wrinkled and had black spots. It was a surprise when I found it in my salad. I was all "om nom nom onions are delicious! OH GOD THERE'S BURNING!" And tomato.
    I like how the burning part is implied to be something other than the tomatoes.

    Seriously, though: ಠ_ಠ

    Actually, I think I was meant to be Spock in the gif, which meant that I was watching...

    So how 'bout them Manticores? Don't know who the 'eff commands them, and they're not in the top ten standings! Go them!


    (You know, I never thought I'd be using that emoticon again, but hey! Also, frownie-face at Photobucket for the massive advertisement for a Tinkerbell movie. :|)

    I don't know how the problem would have fixed itself without me there, as I had the keys with me so the car couldn't move.
    What, your mom doesn't have telekinetic powers? Weird.

    Quote:
    And those who walk just stroll right into traffic.
    Oh, I love those people. Back when I lived in Massachusetts, people did that all the time. It was like they were playing games with drivers. And, of course, every crosswalk has a "yield for pedestrians" sign, so if you so much as tap the gas, you're screwed because there's probably a cop watching that crosswalk like a hawk.

    But in parking lots, I like to tell people I'm with that it's 500 points for single pedestrians and 1000 for a group of them. *nod*

    Quote:
    At least I never have to collect grocery carts again. Because people liked to aim for me. IDK.
    Because you're paid to either catch them or dodge them Matrix-style. Preferably the former, but if you did the latter, that would be awesome.

    Quote:
    It's Card. I think we know where Andy got his Andy-ness from.
    ...Holy crap. If I read Ender's Game as if Ender was just a self-insert for Card as a child, the book makes even more sense. My mind is blown.

    Quote:
    He doesn't seem like someone who actively looks for a relationship, but he'd still likes one. And I needed some way to explain why he went with Angel and saying that Andy's gay didn't seem right because he doesn't seem that way to me.
    You know, now that you mention it, that makes a lot of sense. It's a bit difficult to imagine any of Card's characters on a sexual level. It always feels like that's just not their priority, and if they're in a relationship, there's just something awkward about it. (I don't know. My mind's immediately flocking to Valentine's marriage, just because between Ender's Game and Speaker, it just feels like Card went, "O HAY BY THE WAY SMALL SIDE NOTE, BUT VALENTINE IS MARRIED NOW, K?" I know it was important to have her stay on that planet, but.) I guess my point is that it is, in general, it just feels like the characters interact together pretty well but don't really think about interacting together, if you know what I mean. Even if they obviously do.

    Quote:
    Novinha... I still don't know. I mean, she was raised in a Catholic community, so she couldn't be too promiscuous, but I'd like to think she'd would try.
    Oh yeah. Well, she definitely tried with Libo, but was it implied at all that she wasn't exactly a warm lover with anyone else? (Not sure what Card has to say about how warm she was in a relationship with Andy, but.) It actually does remind me of the definition of demisexual you gave me awhile back – like she isn't too keen on the idea of getting together with just anyone.

    Quote:
    I always did have a soft spot for Grego, especially since he tried to cut Andy's crotch off.
    I'm so very tempted to use that one emoticon again.

    Quote:
    Maybe she and Andy sit around together and come up with ways to commit suicide without doing it themselves. It makes sense to them!
    For some reason, this makes me imagine them sitting down and writing emo poetry together.

    Quote:
    THE GAMES HAVE BEEN RELEASED AND WE'RE STILL GOING WTF!
    Yep. Or we're going WTF over the fact that multiple sites have been attacked by Nintendo about copyright. Oh, those threads on pokanon. They are full of lulz.

    Quote:
    Fortunately, PC is devoid of Fifth Generation fics for now.
    Yeah. We just have an abundance of fics that don't seem to understand the concept of the paragraph. :| Seriously, what's so hard about this, guys? A paragraph is a beautiful, wonderful thing that you should honor by hitting the bloody enter key twice so your readers' eyes stop crossing at every tenth line. And what's even better are the bunches of people who wonder why no one's reviewing their wall-o'-texts. Is it really that difficult to look at fics that have already been given decent reviews and realize the key difference between those and theirs? Really? :|

    Sorry. Coffee, and I haven't had a good fic rant in awhile. I'll eventually get back into gentle "o hay btw I literally can't read your fic plz add paragraphs" reminders later. Because, seriously, I can't read fics like that. I don't know if I'm the only one who has trouble reading blocks o' text, but my eyes and attention span hate me after about five minutes of trying.

    Quote:
    But hey, we got subforum changes! The changes we've been hoping for since 2007, but... YAY CHANGES!
    ...And right about here is when I innocently start paying attention to the subforums of FF&W and pretend that I knew exactly what people on your profile have been talking about all along. *solemn nod*

    (But seriously, ooh. Good luck~! You only have, what, 159 pages of threads to go through?)

    Quote:
    I'M GONNA WRITE IT IN HOT PINK INK!
    Even better if you post it on the forums because I'm right now using Johto Elite as my theme! (I'd change it back to a light-colored background except when I tried for the new BW layouts, I inadvertently blinded myself.)

    Quote:
    Unfortunately, I found an old notebook, looked through it, and found like ten unfinished Andrew/Angel fics and a few plot bunnies, and it's just sad how many fics I have to write about them.
    And your current idea gets derailed in favor of finishing some of these? ;D

    P.S. I recently discovered Q10 and... *flail* Best no-distraction writing tool ever. Probably the best writing tool period. It makes clicky, typewriting noises whenever you strike keys, which of course satisfies my ADD-like attention span enough to get me to keep writing!

    ...And I have mostly used it for porn. Whoops.

    Speaking of which!

    Quote:
    Speaking of fics, I just have to say that while reading over the Pokemon Kink Meme, I automatically assume that all prompts about Bill involve you in some way. That is the truth, and I'm sticking with it.
    Hilariously, probably about half of them are from me. There's a couple that aren't, including the latest two. However, I was responsible for the pornish Bill x Lt. Surge fic involving BDSM on page 31 (as if there's any other on that meme), which was the first full story I wrote on Q10. It is also now part of my headcanon that Bill is secretly the domme in every relationship he's in. Yes, domme. As in, he's probably currently in a Master/slave relationship with someone. He just keeps up the cute, innocent front because it's easier to deal with people.

    It's unfortunate headcanon because now I want to write more fic involving this idea, which pretty much ruins every interpretation of Bill I had prior to it and goes on to rape canon as well. Which means writing AEM has become slightly awkward because I can't stop thinking about Bill mind raping other characters. It's kinda hot. :(

    (I've also got the Bill x Kotone one started, but Q10 failed during spell check before I saved it, so I'm sort of going :| and trying to push myself into rewriting it from memory.)

    Quote:
    Also, Magic Street. Has the line "In fact, knowing Puck, it probably wasn't a real fart."

    Quote:
    WHY DO I KEEP ENDING CONVERSATIONS/STORIES IN AWKWARD PLACES?
    I would answer, but it's just better to motion towards the part about Spock and smile. :D

    Why can't I give you a straight answer when it's 2:30 in the morning and I'm in a slightly off-normal state of mind?

    ...Oh wait.

    As a random side note, are there any awkward and lulzy emblems I could qualify for? I know I never used to care about emblems, but now I kinda want something hilarious on my profile because my only emblem is kinda srs bsnss.

    Spoiler:
    It's also apparently part of some kind of mild drama that I wasn't aware of until recently. Evidently more people want the writer emblem and don't understand why they don't have it? And by that, I mean certain people who participated in writing contests? IDK, Asty. Some of the people on my board are fun to watch. That's why I've been over there more often lately. It's like pokanon, only you know exactly who's posting.
