    It's a good thing to keep driving. I let myself go, and last night, when I tried to drive, I was like, "I'M GONNA KILL SOMETHING GET ME OUT OF THE DRIVER'S SEAT PLZ."

    You know, I keep thinking the same thing. Truth be told, the drama in it and the sheer stupidity of a number of people should've driven me out ages ago, but it's the blinking fanfiction. I don't even know what it is about the fandom that makes me want to keep writing about it. The characterization and plot in the anime notoriously suck compared to most other shows that hit Japanese airwaves, Special is crammed full of Mary Sues, the games have bare-bones plot that really can be summed up with what's essentially a cliché in this fandom nowadays, and the reviewers tend to be a hit-and-miss sort of thing (as in, sometimes you get the sane ones and other times you get the bat♥♥♥♥ ones). In any case, it just seems like it's one of the few I feel comfortable with writing in. I blame that British pansy who prances around my brain periodically and the fact that I always feel uncertain as to whether or not I get any other fandom's canon right. With Pokémon, everything's so straightforward that if you unintentionally royally screw everything ever up, you fail at fanfiction in general.

    Lulz to Card. Personally, I'm heavily surprised he has a forum at all and hasn't just skipped to the box part, considering how he is in real life and on the subject of fans in general. I also imagine him sitting with a browser open and the URL for his forums in the address box. And he just stares, afraid of hitting enter and seeing just how crazy his fans can be. (Oh, the socks argument.)

    As for chapter length, maybe he'd be more comfortable reading Stephen King, considering the dear, dear man once wrote a chapter that's only a sentence long (and got away with it because he's Stephen ****ing King, He Who Backhanded the Mistress of Sparkly Vampires). On the other hand...

    I'll reply to the entire thing later, but I just want to say... lulz. What makes this even more amusing is:

    1. He says the part about fifteen pages, yet... he's reviewed my work, which gives a thorough up-yours to page limits. Maybe he is a masochist.
    2. "I'm not saying her work is bloated and pretentious. Just the majority." (Or it comes off like that. You'd think two arguments with the same person over apparent misunderstandings would teach one to read over what one writes before hitting the post reply button.)

    I say this to you, my dear Asty, because I'm sorely tempted to reply, but that would result in more drama because, well, he reminds me of a certain Irishman the entirety of my LJ flist knows and loves so dearly they felt the need to mass-omit him from their own flists abruptly. (Even Gizamimi Pichu, who's probably the sweetest girl you could ever know. Which says something, really.) That and apparently, people flail at my arguments now. Even though they lol'd at the Orange Sheep incidents except for that one time? And then there was the swampoleon thing where everyone pretty much jumped in afterwards? WTF, guys.

    I can't wait until I get off my tail and finish my site, really. My forum will be pretty. It will have awesome people to start off with (namely, the people who've stuck with the old one), and we'll all make it together. And it will be fun times.

    Oh my gosh, I have one friend (going for his teaching credentials to become an English teacher) who showed me a video on literary devices:

    Quality not the best, but it's still cool they did that. XD

    Also, lulz, I'm slow when it comes to other forums, but I can't help but wonder how quickly your brain would implode if this happened to your forums.

    Intrigues me too, now that I know that it's apparently more than just some random stuff I stuck in the search engine because, probably related to the fact that it was almost 3:30 in the night/morning at the time, it seemed like the most awesome idea since Baconnaise. X3

    I love the list of things that Google turned up that are apparently united by fooble, by the way. XD

    Meanwhile, this happened.

    I think what makes that entire post is this thread.

    But in general, oh, internet.

    Holy ****. The fact that such a thing even exists is amazing.

    Also, I just searched the forums for "fooble", and it turned up nothing. :(

    You're welcome. ^_^ I'd never thought of Raikou speaking like that, to be honest, and it would have been very easy for it to have been done poorly. But you pulled it off effectively. :D I just came across it in a search of your fanfiction, because I hadn't seen any of it before. ^^;
