    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.
