    The Prince of Sweet Sorrow
    I have a question about Fan Fic; is it acceptable that I write one with an already existing character from a game as the protagonist? Or will it be considered plagiarising?

    I refuse to believe that the events depicted in that picture didn't actually happen at some point in time.

    Also, I think I would actually pay to see a sequel to that picture. Specifically, a sequel depicting the "Bingo Nite" advertised on the back wall there. That just sounds like something I need to see.

    As for Dethklok cats, well, there was a sequence in one episode wherein Toki was a cat. Well, mostly a cat, anyway.

    Thanks! :D

    And hmm... So performing surgery doesn't involve shooting lasers out of your eyes?

    (The thought of which, I must say, made me immediately think "Doctor Knubbler". Oh dear...)

    Also: Lawyer Cat vs. Charles. This needs to happen. If only because I kinda want to see a fencing cat. Or better yet, Charles fluffing up and hissing.

    Human Nurse is possibly the best character name ever, meanwhile.

    And oh God. Zelda DOES look like Skwisgaar! I mean, I see this:



    And my first thought is that surely a nice, loud "pfft" preceded whatever she said there.

    Damn! I knew I should've saved that other GIF!

    But saving this one now!

    (Although, yeah, I wasn't quite sure what you were trying to say with that last one. It kinda looked like you were saying you were checking matt out.)

    WTF at new computers not having word processors of any kind. :| I can understand they're avoiding monopolies or whatever, but really? One of the most basic functions people use computers for? I CAN ONLY LOOK AT SO MUCH PORN, MICROSOFT. YOU GOTTA GIVE ME SOMETHING ELSE ON TOP OF THE INTERNET.

    Oh, you used to use XP.
    And as shiny as 7 is, I'm still going, "WHAT IS THIS ****ERY?" I may or may not switch to an XP-style taskbar, JUST because 7's taskbar is making me go, "No, seriously, what are you doing?"

    Things I will also need to get used to: having a number pad again. I didn't have one for the last two laptops I owned, so now I keep hitting the 0 key when I meant to hit the left button. And then the left button when I meant to hit the down arrow. It has seriously screwed up my way of reading stuff.

    Quote:
    I attempted to stalk you by going to Emerson's website. I was met with the douchebaggiest of douchebag white men pictured on that site. YOU MUST FIND HIM AND PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE.
    OKAY.

    Except whenever I go on Emerson's site, all I see is a girl with a traffic cone on her head.

    IDEK.

    Also, it's sort of awesome that douchebag isn't censored here. WAY TO GO, PC.

    I wonder how long it'll take matt to realize I just don't feel like replying to him. I mean, by now, we're so far away from the original point that it's like I don't even know what the crap we're talking about anymore. It's like, "Okay? But the point was that you said it's necessary for trainerfics to start with the character getting a starter. So why should I care about the character who likes fashion now? Or how to make it seem original?"

    Quote:
    Jax, make me feel better!
    I'm currently topless.

    Quote:
    Best Guide Ever still needs to exist, btw. *fistshake* at the loss of free time!
    IT WILL. EVENTUALLY.

    Along with the Southern accent rant. I just need one person attempting to roleplay Bill by butchering every post he writes with an "accent."

    GUYS. NO ONE ACTUALLY WRITES USING THEIR ACCENT. BILL WOULD NOT BUTCHER THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE VIA TWEET.

    ...Of course, this assumes that Bill would use Twitter to begin with.

    ...Which he probably would, but it would most likely consist of, "HEY GUYS HERE'S 5000 PICS OF MY NEW EEVEE." Possibly rendered in actual butchering of the English language, not because he has an accent but instead because at least one canon says he can't spell. (Oh, Toshihiro Ono's version.)

    It is also my headcanon that this is true in general. He probably writes a la badfic, complete with an utter lack of understanding for comma rules. Or capitalization. Or creating sentences that don't wander off into tangents, never to return.

    He has probably driven at least one copy-editor insane for this reason.

    And there's your Bill fangirling for the day.

    Quote:
    Because "Hanako" is a feminine name, so of course my preferred gender is female!
    But you're smart, so therefore, you're a guy!

    ...That will never get old.

    Quote:
    Well, she also needs to learn that no matter how many times she says "I'm not a misogynist!" doesn't make it true. Especially when her previous post had her spewing misogyny all over the place.
    EXACTLY. And I'm pretty sure I've told her already (in that same thread, no less) that just because you say you aren't doesn't mean you're magically not sexist.

    Not to mention I love the way her posts have been. "I've always been taught that boys are better than girls. It's how I was brought up. And it's been biologically proven!" No, seriously, I'd like to read that study, just for the lulz. Also, I'd like to send angry ferrets to her parents for teaching their daughter that she's inferior and that her only purpose in life is apparently to be inferior to men. Also for the lulz.

    Seriously, I'm not even a feminism activist, and her treatment of women seriously pisses me off. I'm tempted to just call her a troll and ignore her, but she's constantly on SPPf.

    Quote:
    I'm hoping that maybe now she'll start to learn, given her response to Ememew over on SPPf, but I've seen her do this before.
    She's a lot like a denser version of matt, really. She'll look like she's about to take the advice of others, but about a week from now, she'll go and ask someone random whether or not she's correct, if she doesn't just go and make a thread dedicated to it. I remember her damsel in distress thread was really just a response to something I had said. Or something else. But you get the idea.

    Quote:
    She gets told not to do an offensive thing, says that she won't do it, and then she does it again.
    And then argues that it's totally not offensive because it portrays a deep, developed character.

    Quote:
    At some point, maybe she'll get it, but until then, I'll just be shaking my head and hoping that she'll get it.
    While I just hope she sods off. Honestly, I'd rather have users who constantly and blatantly make threads to get someone to shoot down the opinions of their reviewers than this. At least with the shoddily done crossover fic and thinly-veiled potshot, I didn't feel like part of my identity was being offended.

    Quote:
    Also! My parents are a-okay with another trip up north! :D So whenever you need an added boost of Asty in your life, just let me know so I can tell work to sod off. I need a few days off from pricing lube and sanitary pads.
    Woot! And also, whenever I figure out my schedule and give you a date, be sure to line your pockets with both. We may or may not need them.

    Quote:
    Actually, I'd be a good flotation device.
    And then I had the image of someone paddling up the Mississippi on your back.

    idek.

    Quote:
    I have never seen Ouran! :D I stopped watching anime years ago, like as soon as I graduated from high school. Maybe at some point I'll watch the series so I'm not just nodding along to the fangirling.
    IT'S OKAY. THIS ONE IS LIVE-ACTION.

    Quote:
    And I completely misread that as "I need to fangirl you" and I was flattered.
    Awww~!

    I see - haven't read that one. It does remind me I should read one I do have that I also hav not read yet...probably shall try it when I have time again for it. Stupid uni.

    And the message worked! \o/

    That's good that it didn't do much else besides that, but pity about the power loss.

    Hurrah for using that to read books as well! Although nightmares are considerably less cool. =( What book was it?

    I think btw we should aim to start the poetry thing by the start of september or thereabouts. *shrug*

    Also! I'm not sure why, but that GIF kinda mesmerizes me.

    Also also! I now have the image of you running around outside in hurricane-force winds topless. The neighbors would be entertained!

    Also also also! I need to fangirl at you sometime too. About Ouran. About Bill. About Andy and Bill as hosts in Ouran Academy (which would be the best and most sparkly crossover ever)...

    On chocolate body paint and whips: Yep. They're heavily involved in my next one-shot involving Bill. *shot*

    Quote:
    But I didn't want to use my old account be good golly that name. So I asked Marcin what to do, and no matter what, I'm stuck with that account.
    You could do what I did and just start a new account. There's still a Jax Malcolm somewhere on there with a hilarious PM from Yami Ryu about how she "OMG CAN'T SHOOT ME TO STARDOM SO CLEARLY I'M AN IDIOT WHO CAN'T INTERPRET HER REVIEW SO GTFO *****" sitting in its inbox, but it's okay because I really have no intention of touching it ever again anyway.

    Quote:
    And h-staff doesn't respond to reports from FF&W. Which would be hilarious as the members are like "They're being mean to me! *report*" and all they get are the two mods who just kind of point at you and go "That's our Jax!" and the theme song from Different Strokes plays.
    And then I'd shrug and smile mischievously while the producer credits roll over our faces.

    The FF&W would be the worst sitcom ever.

    Quote:
    That's okay. Remember the member who wanted us to give him the entire plot of a story? And then after you said no, he's asked for a middle and an end to his bare-basics beginning? After that mess, he posted a continuing thread story and I told him no? He sent me a PM asking how to fit in at FF&W. I told him to lurk more.

    Never seen again.
    Haha.

    Oh, if only we could do that with other members. Seriously, if you're not going to learn from your mistakes, just GTFO, please.

    On that note, please someone teach a certain someone about characterization. I really don't know how to simplify things, and I feel like the person in question tends to filter out half the point I try to make to her. *facebury* That last attempt? The one-shot she just posted? I... I just can't. *headdesk*

    Quote:
    Also, the common themes of my dreams, in order of the amount of times they've appeared:

    -work
    -me sending topless photos to you
    -me driving and dying
    -my mother and I fighting so much that I have to live with my former manager

    Oh Freud.
    That sounds like a terrible modern buddy movie. Like Hangover x100. Only with death.

    Quote:
    I'M PRICING TOOTHPASTE!
    THERE'S NOTHING MORE PRODUCTIVE FOR SOCIETY.

    Quote:
    Ghetto Rite actually does sell chocolate-flavored and strawberry-flavored lube!
    This alarms me for some reason.

    Quote:
    When's your first break from school again? c: I can plan another trip.
    THAT IS A FANTASTIC TOPIC CHANGE, ASTY.

    Seriously, no idea. I'd check, but that would require having to load Emerson's website. :(

    Quote:
    ALSO! There is going to be a meet-up of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fans in your former college town.
    ...Somehow, I'm not surprised that there's a brony meetup in Northampton.

    Also, HIGH FIVE for taking over my wall. Only a few more VMs before I return the favor (oh baby oh baby). ;D

    Will respond in full in a sec. Just settling in, setting up the new computer, taking her for a test drive (IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN), and claiming your profile in the name of the Spanish crown... or something.

    I wonder if I should take over your wall too. I've got only six VMs left before I do it, and I am totally willing to spam the crap out of you because you'd enjoy it just like a number of other things I could do to you.
