    Ah, brains. You just gotta blackmail them by threatening to poke them with a cotton swab to get them to shut up.

    Good idea!

    Mine's been banged against various hard objects that it just kinda floats in a sack of fluid in my skull now. The reason I'm more coherent than other people sometimes is because I'm under the control of a sock-eating cupcake.

    ...I knew it!

    But I found another journal community that finds wank in various places, and I love those types of communities.

    Ooh. Link?

    Now I have amusing images of Card in my mind pretending to be a race car driver. x3)

    I just have images of Card sitting on his front porch, waving a cane at said people. XD

    XD It's kinda sadly funny that you sent me your message seventeen minutes after I went to bed, and we're in the same time zone.

    Yes, m'dear. It's because I have morning classes. XD

    Kelly green is a softer shade that's more enticing, whereas lime green is more captivating. (lolwut?)

    I don't know about you, but if I had to stare at Sierra Mist bottles all day, the only thing that would be captivating to me is the pointy end of a hot poker.

    So it's preferable to have paragraphs upon paragraphs of description about a character's raven-colored soul, but if the character is happy, it should only get a word or two.

    ...And suddenly, everything on Fictionpress makes sense.

    I hope that part of you that died wasn't important.

    Nah. Just my left kidney. I still have the other one.

    You have to do...something. I honestly have no idea what it is that makes some authors on SPPf gods among men over there.

    Flame everyone you come across and claim it's concrit reviewing? Because from what I've seen, that's what some people have been doing.

    Oh, SPPf. You have no logic.

    Unfortunately, Andy is claimed by me for the month of November. =(

    Aww. Threesome?

    Andy is going to act like his "I'm obviously in the closet, but I like to deny!" personality, or his "I watch gay porn nightly for 'research' because girls are icky" personality. He will, hopefully, be acting like his typical pansy crying self that makes me want to wrap him in a blanket and give him pudding.

    XD And I will watch for this fanfiction.

    The Israel cover has the Starship Enterprise on it! Ender meets Captain Kirk.

    The image of Ender as Captain Kirk amuses me greatly.

    Brazilian one? That one was frightening.

    Really? O_o

    EDIT: Just heard of something amusing. You know the Lego Star Wars video games? I've heard one better: Duplo Firefly. XD A little figure of Mal, eight times larger than Lego-sized people, wandering around on a chunky spaceship. Probably wondering why people call him "Maul".

    XD! I will need to look this up now.

    In the meantime, have some awesome childhood rape.

    Edit: XD The censor picked up the link.

    That is a scary thought. I don't know if I can sleep tonight :o

    But yeah, I noticed as well that she had left in March, which was the month I joined, and I am pretty sure that the rule concerning font was in effect when I began posting my fiction in March. I can't say that for sure, so correct me if I am wrong.

    I really cannot understand how she thought I was flaming her though. I mean, I said that I was sorry for bringing it up in the first place, before even mentioning the problem. Then I tried to make it sound as polite as I could to inform her why her font was ineffective, and I tried to warn her about her title. I mean, I have read plenty of books with awkward titles before, but none lacked capitalization. It's just something I haven't seen done too much in published works. Since I lacked the ability to read further than the first paragraph of her fiction, I assumed that she was new to writing on this forum and tried to point these things out helpfully, but was met with flames. I'm not even sure if I can give the fiction an impartial review now, as I feel a little anger at her response to my advice.

    I'm sorry that I didn't report that thread to you. My intention was never to minimod at all. I just wanted the font changed so that I could read it. My eyes aren't the greatest in the world, and I was only able to manage the first full paragraph before I couldn't take any more straining. Besides, I never thought that she would react like that to a simple request. I guess I probably should have quoted the rules, but I guess I just assume that everyone has read the recent rules and should know them before they post.

    Again, sorry about that whole ordeal.

    Maybe you should add some asterisks and the like to the rules thread, too xD Now that we're all out of our minds, maybe the fic section should take the impact, too. It looks dead boring without any !s and a couple of #s...

    No bloody clue; ah well, I'm sure come morning I'll have all the clocks fixed on my end of the house. *yawns* Either way, I need to go to bed; g'night, Astinus, and have a good rest of the evening. *waves*

    Apologies for not responding until now; mix of being sick plus not-in-the-dandiest-of-moods prevented my head from working straight. D: I'm better now though~ Ahem. Anyway, I guess you're right about my lil' misconception. *nodnods* And besides, I've decided to wait until chapter one to see the overall quality of Spanish's work. Hopefully she'll post soon. Anyway, thanks for the correction (and the friend-request-thinger).

    By the way... is America finally in Daylight savings time? The forum time hasn't changed yet (I thought I had daylight savings detected on it) and neither has my comp-clock...

    Asty, I have reached a dilemma that I should probably solve by myself but am asking for help anyway! I don't know if I should spend this month working relentlessly on my NaNoWriMo, OR trying to long awaited chapter of DI up. I need your mod powers to guide me in the right direction.

    Ah, so what I needed to sound intelligent is sleep. Like, twelve hours worth. Who knew?

    I'll have to keep that in mind myself. Because I only got five hours because at 11 PM last night, my brain was like, "Hey, since this is only a four-page paper, let's rewrite it! =D"

    But I was like, "If you take out the chunk you want me to take out, I'm back down to two pages."

    And my brain was like, "So? You can find quotes, right?"

    And I was like, "…Did you actually read this play?"

    And yet, I went with my brain anyway.

    (But... But... Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones! <3)

    I'd say that's a good enough reason to stay up late. XD

    Anyhow, The Big Al tripped me up as well, the sneaky arse. When he said that description doesn't need big words, I grinned because he was right! And then he had to ruin the mood by saying that you should get specific with colors. I mean, if I was to tell you right now that I'm wearing a green shirt, does it really matter if it's kelly green or dark green? (Do I even know what shade of green it is? o_O)

    What the hell is the difference between kelly green and lime green anyway? For that matter, who the eff uses the term "kelly green" in the first place (aside from the people who believe Ireland is populated entirely by leprechauns)?

    Of course, I also laughed at the Big Al saying that lighthearted scenes need basic description.

    Yeah, what exactly did he mean by that? Did he mean we don't have to abuse the thesaurus for lighthearted scenes (and can use small, understandable words), or did he mean lighthearted = little to no description? Because if he meant the latter, I think a part of me is going to curl up and die inside.

    But, I mean, you write for your audience. And the Inheritance Quartet are marketed toward young adults. How many "young adults" do you know of that know what a "filigree" is?

    My thoughts exactly.

    And, of course, if you sound pretentious in your work, you aren't doing a great job at description. You just make your audience think you're an ass hole.

    Then again, that's probably just me because I associate crap like that with Anne Rice.

    You can just have the characters go on and on about how the night is midnight black. Midnight black like their soul. Or, you know, witching hour raven like their soul. And the character's name is Raven Darkheart Malfoy (even if not in the Harry Potter universe, because Draco is teh KAWAII!)

    Haha. I should just write a parody of Twilight (even if I still haven't read the book).

    Your words just look pretty and intelligent and people will just flock to your story to read about your Sue because they don't know wtf you're talking about! =D

    Great idea! And then I'll get tons of reviews and bunches of groupies to defend me when someone comes along and says they don't like my Mary Sue. :( Probably because they're jealous. :( :( :( Oh, but it's okay. People all over the place will write knock-offs of my fiction!

    Oh, SPPf. I'm almost tempted to rejoin you. Almost.

    Incidentally, speaking of NaNo, there's a character in my head that thinks that just because finally I'm giving him proper attention, I'll just write his fic instead of the angstbucket I'm thinking of. Can he have a month-long playdate with Andy? [/attempt at crack]

    XD It cracks me up, too. I think it's the characters' faces more than anything else that kills me. I mean, look at them! They're just effing perfect. XD

    That octopus on the loading screen for that video is great, first of all. X3 Second, "I need to build a rotating metal kill machine."= WIN. X3 Third, "miniature Africas" are an official unit of measurement now. Yes. X3 Fourth, "THIS IS SOME SORT OF VEHICLE." = awesome. And fifth, Adam's face at the end is frelling epic. XD

    In other news, this.

    Ah! So that's what Silawen was ranting about. XD

    Seriously, though, I love bushes right now. The Big Al nearly had me, but then he had to go and support purple prose.

    lol at support for Eragon as a perfect example of description. I mean, honestly. These flipping fanfiction writers (and not just in the Pokemon fandom) just have to learn some time that the problem isn't just that it's a distraction. I mean, if your readers have to look up what the hell you're trying to talk about in the dictionary (I admit it. I had to look up "filigree." And I found that the phrase was redundant anyway.), then you're obviously doing it wrong.

    XD to the Katamari sex ed. I can't stop watching it!

    And maybe. Maybe.

    Ideas? For NaNo? Ha! Seriously, I don't know. Either I'm going for a superhero parody, or I have this angstbucket of a fic. Leaning towards the latter if this ass hole I know won't get off my back.

    Ooh. I was not aware of its existence, but I totally will download episodes like crazy now. =D And yes, 02 needed more Jyou. Because, seriously, Jyou was hot in 02. (Or, at least, I thought so.)

    As for the article, haha. I love it. And I love the other whiny edits concerning getting back on Smogon as well. Sounds like something that would be blasted on 4chan.

    Oddly enough, I've seen Blackjack's article already, but I think there's new links here. o.o *click!*

    I can't argue with you finding me links, though. You usually link me to awesome stuff. And, frankly, my papers usually suck anyway.

    As for Katamari sex ed, yep. And just imagine the King of All Cosmos teaching kids about condoms. Very colorful condoms.

    Of course it won't result in lack of NaNo. I will participate, and I will try to outdo last year's record of 30k words. Until, of course, my classes decide to remind me that, yes, I do attend them.
