    Sorry...but either way, you could get a wireless desktop card or USB adapter if you needed.

    No worries - this isn't one of my usual handles at all. XD

    And thanks - I'm a little confused about what's going on now, but then again, I'm not used to keeping up with forums + super active threads just yet.

    Also... strawberry daiquiri jello? Really? *sparkly eyes* I remember when the most exotic thing was blue rassberry. ;_; I'll have to see if I can find some of this godliness, and imagine it with my imaginary girlfriend, since men + jello (unless they're fictional men), doesn't sound very good. XD

    Dear. Get several hundred boxes of these and meet me in Northampton. I know where we can get an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

    Seriously, how tasty was it?

    Also... ;_; *cling* Somehow, I'll figure out how to survive while you're gone. Probably by torturing the people in your section. Sorry.

    The one odd thing about the fixed summary is why are we in Nebraska?
    Why aren't we in Nebraska?

    But okay, fine. The new fixed summary:

    Bestseller Goodkind (Confessor) ventures into thriller territory with results sure to please fans of his fantasy fiction. In the opening pages, Astinus, the book’s unwitting hero, saves the beautiful Jax from being run down on the street in Greensboro, NC, by Orson Scott Card's truck flying a pirate flag. Jax, who turns out to be from an alternate reality where evildoers are attempting to seize control of her civilization and where Orson Scott Card is the god of lust, has traveled to North Carolina to seek Asty’s help in saving her people from being enslaved by sparkly dragon people. In Jax’s world, magic takes the place of technology, but on earth she’s stripped of her powers, among other things, and forced to fight armed with only her trusty dagger. The author takes his time setting all this up, but once the story gets rolling, it’s a gripping ride as Orson Scott Card whooshes in between his own little world, which remains unseen, and ours. Fantasy and thriller readers alike will find themselves swept along to the final confrontation and looking forward to writing fanfiction about this crap.

    On the topic of things that share your name (because "Astinus" just isn't that common of a name), there's a Sims 2 story that I'm in love with that has a character who calls herself "Jax", short for Jasmine. She kind of reminds me of you.
    In what way? o.o

    Would you mind if I told you that a certain book character comes first? Erm, let's say the same holds true on my end.

    It's okay. I'll just be over here having an affair on you with an animated character.

    Incidentally, I read that Gardevoir fic you sent me, and I kinda want the pieces of my mind back. Oh, that mold part near the beginning? Very lovely.

    Haven't we been over this before? PC staff is crazy. All of us. Each and every single one of us is our own brand of crazy, and a collective PC kind of crazy.
    Okay, fair point. I know you guys have a mini-bar in there. The wandering thread said so.

    Incidentally, guess what's in the Poetry forum right now. I wrote dirty limericks for it.

    Too good to be true? At any rate, troll or not, I think I found August's FFotM. I mean, I don't think any story out there can beat this one.
    Speak of the devil, and the devil shall come. Or something like that.

    In any case, dammit. I get worn out from lack of sleep + work, and I miss a golden opportunity that Citrinin takes. *fistshake*

    Oh well. At least last night, I got to watch a full hour of Jeff Goldblum on Law and Order, during which I actually sort of fangirl squealed when he ninjaed in and took a suspect's gun. Maybe it's fangirl's wishful thinking to think about every single one of his sci-fi movie characters doing something like that? (I kinda miss his not-so-serious roles. Even though I have to say holy geez to Adam Resurrected.)

    No, you're right. In Game, John Paul and Theresa had no idea what was going on with their kids. In Ender in Exile, however, they do know everything. From what Peter and Valentine are doing on the 'nets to the abuse the two younger kids (and the rodents!) suffered under Peter. I recently read parts of EiE, and in the beginning, John Paul and Theresa discuss how they can make Peter and Val write their essays to make it so Andrew doesn't come home. So they know, they just don't do anything to stop it.
    Once again, this makes me feel sorry for Card's kids.

    Why am I laughing at this?!
    Because you're a twisted, twisted person.

    Also, because it really is hilarious how the Wiggin adults just win Parent of the Year.

    She waits for me at night, she waits for me in silence
    She gives me all her tenderness and takes away my pain
    And so far she hasn't run, though I swear she's had her moments
    She still believes in miracles while others cry in vain

    It's all about soul
    It's all about faith and a deeper devotion
    It's all about soul
    'Cause under the love is a stronger emotion
    She's got to be strong
    'Cause so many things getting out of control
    Should drive her away
    So why does she stay?
    It's all about soul
    ♥ I love it when you serenade me.

    Also, the messages on your profile scare me. Hold me?
    Well, m'dear, Gizamimi Pichu doesn't usually bite. But otherwise... *hands you a foam club and American Gladiator uniform*

    The rest of them, yeah.

    This is probably a shot in the dark, but I'll try. Have you ever been to a restaurant that has margarita pizza? It's my favorite kind of pizza, and the only pizza place that my family goes to is, well, Pizza Hut. And I think that fully explains why I only eat it frozen. Since I could eat that pizza every day if I could.
    Oddly enough, the campus cafe at Smith serves it every day. Which means you have yet another reason to come visit me when I'm at school. Or maybe apply for Smith. You know. Either way.

    Yay, I can finally read your messages again! Oh, Rukario. I know what happened to PC was beyond your control, but I'm still heavily, heavily amused.

    That said...

    *pets over your lappy* Well, on the positive side, new laptop = more Sims! Which may or may not be a good thing, considering it could very well mean that I won't see you for three months afterwards.

    Ugh, drinking a quart of limonade makes me have to pee something terrible. :(
    Unfortunately, dear, I'm not into golden showers.

    Since my laptop exploded on the 25th, I haven't been here at all until today/last night. So if anything happened during those days, I have no idea about anything. I do know what you're talking about though, and I can answer that I wasn't in on it.
    Aww. Well, he's still around and still... the lovely dear. I can't quite tell if he's the staff's pet or if they're just horribly, horribly amused. I'm inclined to say the latter because even Pichu was perky when talking about him. Kinda scary, although I think someone replaced Pichu with an alien clone recently because Pichu has been perky a lot lately.

    It's okay. We have an open relationship. Go out and get your hookers to satisfy you, since I'm laptopless.
    ...I kinda didn't read the first syllable of "laptopless" at first.

    Also, okay! aww, you're the only girl for me. ♥

    1. I notice that when the mod is away, the noobs come to play.
    Yeah, pretty much. You'd think they'd at least mod bobandbill over on the writing forums, considering you could use help and he frequents the forums too. Eh, whatever. We haven't really had a troll lately. Which is only mildly disappointing. (Whatever happened to conicteam anyway?)

    If the orange sheep's fic is bumped, I'm closing it. And when she asks if I can open the thread again, I'll conveniently lose the PM.
    *goes to post*

    3. I'm unsure whether to answer with a sarcastic mean "Keep telling yourself that. It might come true some day." But we all know that that's just me refusing to openly admit that the sexy thought of you reading my message was enough to kill my mind.
    Just to let you know, I'm doing it laptopless too.

    2. The customers at my store are mean. They chase me around the parking lot in their cars, and the only thing I have for a defense mechanism are my fast little (not so little, actually, my height is all leg) legs.
    Throw carts at them! Also, I don't know why they would. It's only 50 points for a supermarket clerk not worth the possible lawsuit.

    The Sims of TS3 frighten me, and make faces as if they had seizures while doing drugs and were hit by a bus.
    XD See, I just thought a lot of them looked like talk show hosts, which I guess isn't too far from this comparison anyway.

    Don't call me m'dear. >(
    Needs more bold print. Like so:

    Don't call me m'dear. >>

    Ma'am. (Totally not implying a Dom/Sub relationship here. Totally.)
    8D Now, get on your hands and knees.

    That lead me to remember Card's statement that the Wiggin parents (the canon ones, not the pixelated dancing ones)
    I'm still amused by the idea that this is what possibly killed your computer.

    I'm trying to figure out what purpose John Paul and Theresa had for allowing their oldest son to mentally/physically/(and perhaps sexually in the case of Val) their younger kids.
    I'm thinking it was just a few bouts of being terrible, terrible parents. Maybe it's just me, but I got the vibe from Ender's Game that the two of them were pretty incompetent when it came to parenting. I mean, if I recall correctly, didn't they find out that Val and Peter were using their father's account on the 'net? Wouldn't they, you know, want to know what the two of them were doing? In detail? (I can't remember. Did they ever actually find out what Val and Peter were doing?)

    Also, I looked for that concrit you were talking about, and I'm a bit disappointed that the author didn't seem to respond at all. No wank or anything. If anything, on her personal journal, she said she'd revise but that she couldn't (which is legit because LJ comms are WTF-worthy).

    Also also... argh. I haven't read too much of it, but from your description and what I have read, it's rather painful. See, it reminds me of this girl I knew way long ago (but still occasionally talk to). She created Mary Sues up the wazoo, usually girls who were beaten/heavily scarred, cyborgs, or (former) slaves, all because she liked to have characters with SUPER OMG ANGSTY pasts. And it annoyed the crap out of me because it was so over-the-top that it was pretty difficult to read her work and roleplay with her. Oh, especially roleplay. And the lovely thing is she'd crit other people's RPing skills, but when she showed me one of her supposed smut, it was mostly pages and pages of one of the gay lovers prancing around in a dress, followed by the two of them sitting down to play a fighting game and snuggle. That was it. And then I curled up and cried for a little after having read through it all and anticipated the question of, "So, what did you think? :D" Because as cold-hearted as I am, I never had the balls to tell the poor girl she wasn't just making a Mary Sue. She was making a Mary Sue over and over again (because they all had the same basic personalities and history).

    Anyway, yes. The use of angsty, last-of-the-species girls who are abused, have magical (possibly even psychic) powers, were sold repeatedly into slavery, and had angsty, angsty, angsty backgrounds makes me think of that other girl I knew. And I could probably find her fanfiction from 2004, too.

    Also also...

    "All of the women that they purchased at the same time as I was had their ‘virginity’ restored to them magically."
    *clears throat*

    I was beat, incomplete
    I'd been had; I was sad and blue

    Shiny and new

    And, thanks! Go ahead and point out the errors that have already been posted if you want to, since it will equal more motivation for me.
    Yeah, the quality of the Pilot is crap compared (in my opinion) to Chapter 1 and Chapter 2. Nevertheless, a review from anyone is something I shall look forward to!

    I'll probably give out spoilers if we talk over IM XD

    Haha, nice. Glad my reviews will help with your rewrite. Heh, remember when you would always tell me to not be down if my writing is not that great? I'm going to do the same for you. :D Seriously, Loyalty is great even better than the other OT fics that have this epic "destiny" plot going on. I consider your story better than Saber's and Mix's, actually. Trust me on this.

    Also, I have one idea that got inspired by the Delta Species cards and the story's called The Delta House. However, I don't know if I'll have time to write it because I'll be busy with many things this summer and also in my senior year at uni. That and I'm still trying to figure out how to fix some plot holes. So I guess you can say for now I'm taking a break from big projects and going for one shots. That reminds me, I need to get this one shot idea finished before the HGSS contest is over. Yeah, I'm actually writing a Johto one shot as an example for some of the entrants on how to do a Johto based story, like how some judges wrote out examples in past contests. XD

    As for reading that one shot, don't. XD; It's very, very rushed because of 7k and I'm planning on rewriting it. I'm trying to come up the plot for part two though because I can't seem to think how I want to end this one shot.
