    To reply to your text (which I didn't notice until, like, 1 AM because I'm a massive derp who keeps forgetting that I turned off sound and vibration on my cell): it's going pretty well. I've settled in, my classes start this evening, and I'm currently applying for all kinds of jobs to add a little cash to the kitty. It's finally cooling down, so I'm not dying. And! I love exploring this city. I really do. There's all kinds of awesome things to do, so it's not like Pittsburgh where I'm stuck in one place and where it takes only a day to take in everything that's worth seeing.

    Only downside, really, is that I'm terrified I'm going to run low on cash, so I really need to find a job within the next two weeks.

    Anyway.

    It's awesome that you're feeling better, by the by. ♥ Sometimes, yeah, just taking off is enough to get you back on your feet.

    Also, magic ponies.

    Yeah... At first I was all "let me look down at you, peon matt. you need to get out of my way!" and then I looked at the gif a bit better and was highly disturbed. It was a mad dash to find another gif, and I wanted to use a new one instead of pulling out an old one. So...Feeny.
    Hahahaaaa, oh realizing that you've made terrible, terrible mistakes in hindsight.

    Quote:
    Or Notepad. Notepad.
    Like all those lovely new kids who think that's a suitable means for writing fic? OKAY!

    At this moment, I would like to take the time to tell you that I'm eating the first thing I've eaten all day, and it's Doritos. I get the feeling I'm doing this nutrition thing horribly wrong. (Yay, scruvy!)

    Anyway!

    YOU CAN USE MS PAINT TO WRITE YOUR FICS! :D:D:D
    TRUE STORY: The first story I wrote on a computer was done on MS Paint. If I remember correctly, it was about this family who was marooned on this deserted island, and I don't remember the rest, but I think whales were involved.

    I was eight at the time and didn't understand Microsoft Works, so.

    Quote:
    But that's how Microsoft thinks they can get you. Need a word processor? Buy Word! And you have to keep buying new versions of Word, otherwise it won't work on your computer!
    Yeeeeah, screw that. I managed to get my copy of Word 2003 that I've had since two laptops ago to work on this one. Which I guess makes me awesome.

    Quote:
    Give your money to Gates!
    I feel like it's appropriate to link you to this at this point, and I don't know why.

    (If I ever get arrested, I'm totally being a badass and treating my mugshot like a yearbook photo too. Way to go, Mr. Gates. I am in fact impressed.)

    Quote:
    You must find all the people at Emerson that look like douchebags: men, traffic-cone lady, and those creepy people sitting at a table with laptops (I kind of refreshed Emerson's website several times looking for Douchey White Man and found my list of people to punch growing). When you find them, yell "IN THE NAME OF ASTINUS!" and then punch them.
    OKAY!

    Side note, but now, whenever I think of "IN THE NAME OF ASTINUS," I think "BY THE POWER OF GRAYSKULL."

    That's right. I don't even think of "IN THE NAME OF THE MOON." Because apparently, my mind wants to jump right to the fandom I was never in as opposed to one of my main fandoms. :| Way to go, brain. Way to go.

    Also: My new laptop's keyboard has this habit of not producing a letter occasionally despite the fact that I struck the key for it. For example, it seems to like assuming that I'm saying "te," and no fewer than six words in this paragraph had to be retyped because they were missing letters. :| THANKS, NEW TECHNOLOGY.

    I almost miss Eureka, but at least this one doesn't die on me when I try to run something big.

    Quote:
    I read through the conversation today, and I still don't get it. But I think he won't stop until you say that he's completely right because there's always a way to write fics his way and don't say otherwise because you're just not smart enough to understand it!
    Okay, so it's not just me who thought that comment made no sense in the context of the conversation.

    In any case, he can just sit there with no response from me because, honestly, the hell am I supposed to say to him? :/ "Oh yes, you're right for throwing in a point that has nothing to do with what we've been saying and actually misses the point of everything I've been trying to tell you?"

    I DON'T KNOOOOOOW. Why do I end up in VM conversation with kids like that? I mean, SPPf has its share of hilarity too.

    Quote:
    Because you are female.
    BRB, WAITING ENDLESSLY FOR SOMEONE TO RESCUE ME BECAUSE I'M TOTALLY NOT A STEREOTYPE OR ANYTHING.

    And then my keyboard missed two letters, and suddenly the quote tag became [que]. Yes, Serenity, that would be my thoughts exactly.

    Quote:
    He'd probably go over the 140 character limit all the time.

    Here's that comic, btw. His expression in the third panel is cracking me up.
    Yes. Yes, he would. And then he'd split his tweets up into multiple tweets, and Bebe would be the first to say, "GODDAMNIT BILL GO OUTSIDE." ಠ_ಠ

    Also! I have actually seen that comic before. XD It's strange, but you're actually the second person who showed me, and I had to tell the first one that, yes, I'm that obsessed to go trawling through dA for fanart now and then.

    ...And I'm frequently disappointed, but I still do it. I don't know why! Seriously, I have not found anything that wasn't unrelated, badfic, "art," or self-insert shenanigans in literally years. :|

    But oh well.

    In any case, that is basically my headcanon for what Bill and Lanette's relationship with each other is like.

    Bill: "(insert some kind of ridiculous idea here)"
    Lanette: "Why don't you just (insert a completely sane and logical idea here)?"
    (Insert significant pause here.)
    Bill: "...But then what would we do with the elephants?"

    Quote:
    HE WRITES LIKE ANDY THINKS?
    I GUESS SO.

    Which means that putting these two in the same room and getting them drunk (in that order) would be hilarious.

    Quote:
    Maybe Card is...

    I can't even finish that thought.
    Unfortunately, Bill isn't fascinated by the ambiguously homosexual relationships between young boys.

    He's too fascinated by Pokémon, if you know what I mean. *shot*

    Quote:
    Hahahahaha...ha. This reminds me of me. I went to an all-white Catholic school, grew up in an all-white neighborhood. You can only imagine how sheltered I was.

    So maybe you-know-who will maybe learn some new things maybe if she gets told these things. Maybe.
    I hope so, but somehow I doubt it. I mean, did you have that sense of hardcore denial?

    Also, I feel like she's a bit on the slow side. But I honestly don't know what kinds of disabilities she has, so I'm not sure if I can say that. But yeah, I feel like she genuinely doesn't have much in the way of comprehension skills (reading, actually understanding social norms, et cetera).

    Quote:
    Just a quick question, but you don't have classes Monday night, do you?
    This is correct. And maybe next time, I'll actually have some sound on, so I won't be like, "DERP IT'S 1 AM AND I'M JUST SETTING MY ALARM CLOCK BUT OH HEY I HAVE A TEXT FROM THREE HOURS AGO."

    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.

    Quote:
    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~!

    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*
