    Oh, and thanks for the compliment on my sarcasm. It makes me feel special when someone as awesome as you says that I can execute sarcasm well.

    I've never actually visited a 4-chan board, so I have no idea how bad it is on those. I hope you don't have to become more strict though. It's fun reading your fun posts. But, I guess that you've gotta do what you've gotta do.

    I can't wait to read it already. If I become as obsessed as you then I'm afraid of two things. First, the character limit will be reinstated because I'll have to tell you everything I liked about it. Second, the PFF&P forum will explode from utter confusion from random quotes and allusions to the book. I have a bad habit of quoting books I like lol.

    I wasn't trolling/imitating your style, was I? I mean, if it seems like I was, then be assured that I didn't mean to. I am an extremely sarcastic person IRL, and I actually have to hold back when I post here, LOL.

    Upon further investigation, I think I have found what spurred that addition to the rules. Still, I do wonder whether or not you consider me a troll or not.

    EDIT: Apparently my girlfriends brother might have Ender's Game. I'm going to double check tonight, but hopefully I can read it soon so I can figure out why you're obsessed over it XD

    DOUBLE EDIT: I guess he does have it. He's going to loan it to me tomorrow after I get out of work, and I should have time to read it tomorrow evening. Well, today really. I confuse myself.

    It's horrible. If I had seen that when I was younger, I could've had nightmares after seeing the dreaded "death by flies".

    There's a colour? Dear gawd, I have to make a full family of killable people and investigate this matter! I've never noticed they have different colours. I've noticed their different actions, though. But they all like to play with toddler toys.

    Yes, you are. I always give up on making sims out of characters I like, because they never look they way I want them to. Of course, that problem is annihilated if it's never told how they look in the books. Which, by the way, is an interesting method. Maybe I should become a fan of those books, too. I just can't stop myself from telling everything about everything when I write. I feel like telling everything about my characters, from their beliefs and what was their relationship to their parents like when they were younger to the smallest detail of their eyes and the curtains of their room. Although most of them have no room and therefore no curtains. How sad it is to be a character of mine xD

    By the way, in Sims, cookies come in a bag resembling the one potato chips are sold in. Does that hold true to USA also? Do you eat cookies from a bag? We have boxes, and the cookies are neatly lined up in those boxes, just to be eaten when the box is opened... It must suck to be a cookie.

    You could put up a huge fight, resulting in him getting you a restraining order to any of his books. Then you'd be a real criminal! You could even occasionally send him a letter telling that you just read one of his books again... Chances are he'd be so annoyed he'd write a dozen of new books, thinking you can't get your hands on them. Of course, you would... Is my imagination a tad too vivid? xD

    My hard drive quit, and the up arrow key ran away.

    And its only 7 months old. Other than that, its been a great computer; for a POS.

    So I assume you don't have an Office product key then? Oh, and random question about Adv Gen. I have Emerald, and although I played Ruby years ago, about four or five if I remember right, I cannot for the life of me remember where the Shadow Ball TM was on Mt. Pyre... Never mind, just realized I was at the wrong mountain XD

    On the Bill fic: Ooh. Okay, now I'm imagining cutesy kid Bill who's been turned into a Clefairy Pokemorph. (Oh God, Asty. The plot bunnies!) The fic itself was good (although some parts made me twitch because I'm a character nazi), of course. But it just gave me cutesy plot bunnies.

    Buuut... You with nunchaku made out of bags of bread tied together while screaming that and hopping on cash registers is just as amusing. XD

    Aside from that...

    Sea kitten Magikarp. Some random cross-breed between Meowth or Purugly and Magikarp. And just imagine it! People will be talking about those random Magikarp recipes (which were weird) and someone stupid (like, say Kanto!Ash) would wonder if what he's eating is Magikarp or Combusken.

    More plot bunnies: Would this be a result of Team Rocket's hairbrained schemes, signed into existence by a drunken Giovanni?

    And just because the image of Magikarp with a Fu Machu mustache and a tiara on rolling around in kitty litter is way too amusing for me to pass up.

    I'll have to agree. XD Just thinking of it rolling around in kitty litter, period.

    For some reason, Astinus and Pikachu just work together. I was getting annoyed at giant question mark of unknown floating around if I left a VM, so I needed some random avatar. And I just got done imaging Andy as a Pikachu, so I went with that. And it just works well.

    In that case, I shall get a Combee so we can get an Andy theme going. XD But I'll have to get it when the MST goes up so, you know, it's easier to get the joke.

    I was going to ask why my Astychu icon means you need a Pokemon icon...but then I remembered that we're the same person.


    (Honestly, that's why new editions of the Enderverse series books, and the web-issued short stories, have an image on the back that says "Actual Ender's Game". To deter piracy and fanfiction. Which amuses me, because there's not a lot of fanfiction on the web. It's just me writing it. Card is an amusing amusing man.)

    Oh, fear of creativity rape is amusing. You'd think he'd explicitly state he doesn't want fanfiction (a la Anne Rice) and get himself on the no-fanfic list if he doesn't want that happening. XD

    And the lack of a character limit means I ramble.

    As it does with me. 8D

    Edit: I've been thinking of editing the PFF&P rules to just say "Astinus is always right" and leave it at that. Think of the fun there would be! No one would know what fic is wrong or not, and they'll all be paranoid and won't post! Or perhaps there will just be a lot of really bad fics.

    Either way, I'll be amused.

    I'm imagining something along the lines of a car wreck happening as a result. XD

    That was the eighth chapter!? Wow, I hadn't realized I'd gotten that far. I'm actually past Ender's transfer and Card witched back to Peter and Valentine's life. I was somewhere in the middle of that chapter.

    It's really great that you found your old work. I know that if I lost all my fanfiction and RP posts, I wouldn't have the heart to even think about Pokemon. I guess this means I'll finally have a chance to read something you've written.

    Unfortunately, I no longer have a library card. I've always preferred owning books rather than borrowing them and this entire ordeal has reminded me why.

    I've only been reading about a chapter a day, if not less, and I just getting to the interesting parts (when Ender gets transferred to rat army). I WANT MY BOOK! =(

    So your Digimon fic is saved? That's good news! I'm still going to look around anyway, if only to protect myself from permanently losing files or in case this happens to someone else.

    Manager: Clean this up.
    Astinus: :B

    That is officially the BEST response to being asked to clean something up. For that matter, it's probably the best response to any command. X3

    I used his card to get Ender's Game, not knowing he had LOADS of overdue books. So apparently the library called and asked for all they're books, he went on a massive book hunt, found EG checked out under his name and the rest, as they say, is history.

    I asked him to go back and get it but he refuses to do it today. I swear if that book isn't there tomorrow, there will be hell to pay.

    I came home today to discover my dad had returned Ender's Game back to the library. There will be blood.
