    Jax, Card is playing really bad music on his forums. It nearly killed me.
    Forcibly? He's a couple months too late for April 1, isn't he?



    The decapitated Slowpoke salute him!

    I wanna say yes to that thread idea, because it will be a new shiny idea and apparently all hope for my section hasn't died. On the other hand, we're talking about the people who want emblems. idk. Kill my hope please.
    Well, there's the "omg cit plzplzplz rite moar none of the other fics in this forum are as good as yours" post by Mr. I Haven't Read A Fic On The FF&W In Months over on Citrinin's thread about whether or not he should do a revamp of his fic, if that doesn't kill it already.

    You know, I respect Citrinin and think he's nice, but I really hope he doesn't bring back the FFL-is-a-clique feeling that the entire PMR thing was supposed to squash. Because if it pops up and if everyone just reviews his fic and all the fics in that friends circle while ignoring all the good writers who are coming into this forum again (and for once, I can actually say with sincerity that there are good new-member writers on FF&W... or my standards dropped like lead as of recent), I've got a box of kittens and a baseball bat and no reason to finish this sentence. =|

    Ranting aside, awesome. I'll get to work on the thread soon. At the very worst, it'll just go the way of the submit-insane-numbers-of-reviews-to-get-your-story-on-the-list thread. But considering there's actually a number of sane members in the FF&W these days, maybe there's hope for it yet.

    Also, my man asked me out this morning. I turned him down so I could read more Card books.
    ಠ_ಠ

    That's it. I'm going to Connecticut, tracking down your man, forcing him to dress up as Orson Scott Card, maybe drag the real Card in, and having an intervention.

    ...Except I get the feeling that if I have your man dressed as Card and the real Card in the same room, you probably won't listen to the intervention part.

    (Also, how would your man look dressed up as Orson Scott Card? I get the feeling a swimming cap would be involved.)

    Quote:
    Also also, I do recommend that how-to-science-fiction book. It's got a whole chapter in there about space travel! And typos! :D Plus a fantasy reference guide to fantasy kind of written by Terry Brooks, but his name is in tiny font on the cover, while Card's is huge.
    WHY DO I NOT HAVE THIS BOOK?

    Charles = so very much win. ^^ If anyone deserves to have something as awesome as a beast with prophetic abilities at his side, it's him.

    On the subject of noteworthy Charles art, check this out.

    Poor Suicune. It can't join in the butt-bumping dance with either of those two because if it did, its toilet paper streamers would ignite due to sparks emitted by Raikou's butt or flames emitted by Entei's butt.

    And now that I've referred to two out of three legendary beasts' butts as "emitting" something, I think I've now made it damned near impossible not to laugh whenever I'm made to think of them for any reason. XD Well, might as well drag poor Suicune into the butt-emission topic: its butt gives off bubbles.

    Yay, I've ruined bubblebeams forever. :B

    Anyway, with regards to which legendary teaches grandmothers to suck eggs... I want to say it's Regigigas. And I want to say this solely because Regigigas doesn't have anything at all even approaching a mouth. XD

    Oh snap I have a brilliant idea: an emblem for derailing a topic about how to increase activity in the FF&W by talking about emblems. Then, everyone can get one! \o/

    You mean your man hasn't yet been clued in about Andy, Angel, and the whole gang? Either you haven't been playing your Sims enough, or this man needs to be introduced to your children.

    Also, I feel like that Writer's Digest is something I should be looking into.

    Admittedly, pretty much, yeah. I'm hoping the idea of not having to review over 9000 other stories before one can submit their own will keep it slightly more active. Slightly.

    Also, XD Yay, attention spans! Which one is it?

    Quote:
    Also, the new general manager of my store is wondering why morale is so low in the employees. I just went ":|" when I heard that.
    Somehow, I feel like staff meetings are the most hilarious things ever with your store.

    I just had an interesting idea to encourage reviews, but it might be one of those things that seem like a good idea in my head but utterly fail when I attempt to put it into practice. Basically, it's like a review chain, where one person posts a link to their story, and the next person has to review it before they can post a link to their story. And so on and so forth.

    Again, not even sure if it'll work, considering how the FF&W's just great at reviewing and stuff, but what do you think?

    Thanks for that. :3 I've had the closure of the FFL explained to me (surprising at the time, but I understand why it was done), but these threads give me a lot more insight into what has, and will happen.

    Thanks Astinus. :3 It means a lot that people care so much about me - I honestly wasn't expecting the warm re-welcome that I got. I'm glad to be back. ^__^

    This is apparently a work-in-progress. It's still seriously frelling awesome, however.

    And as a bonus, here's this.

    Oh! And I finally got a replacement Pucketmoon! :D Hasn't hatched yet, though.

    I spent a few minutes wondering what "it" was.
    I'd say, except I'm not sure whether or not I'd be banned for it.

    Quote:
    As for BZP, check it out yourself.
    ...The organization there kinda hurts my brain. This is a bad sign, isn't it? (Why aren't posts displayed all on one page? What is this? A bulletin board from 2001?)

    Why, yes, it's a superficial comment. In my defense, it's relevant because it was a very delightful experience trying to find actual reviews, let me tell you.

    Quote:
    As for my depression, that was brought on by all but two of the people I talk to at my store leaving for the other. They even transferred my man. And also, he was out of the country for two weeks, so I had no one to wake me up early in the morning.
    Ouch. But you'll get through it. Your man'll come back, and even if he's not around the store, I'm sure you two will find time to get together once in awhile. I mean, okay, Ghetto Rite tries to suck up all your free time and all, but they can't take all of it.

    I totally vote for encouraging him to surprise you by hanging around when the two of you get off work from your respective locations so you can crash together or something.

    Quote:
    Oh, I just found this quote on BZP. It's an author responding to a reviewing saying they have grammar errors:

    Quote:
    I prefer to call the grammatical errors my unique style'!
    :') Amazing, isn't it?
    Jesus, Redstar gets around, doesn't he? :|

    Side note, but oh yeah. I still got it. (Seriously, though, I can only wonder what concrit on BZP -- which, hilariously, is also the name of a drug -- is like if what I offered isn't considered as such.)

    Also :( to the new store. Well, on the positive side, they neeeeeed you at the old store, right? (I'm just imagining them clinging to your ankles and going, "Please don't go, Astinus! We don't know how to run this place without you!")

    Also also, good point about the lack of reviews in F&W. I keep forgetting that people apparently have odd exam periods. On the positive side, Delusions of Originality's got some good reviewing style going on, and Giratina's active (although she just learned the hard way why you don't threaten an author... and why you make sure you're hitting the right button before posting a review response). So, maybe there's hope yet. Maybe.

    In the meantime, I accidentally the whole forum fell out of reviewing. Maybe I should get back on that.

    Meantimes... I hope you're feeling better, by the way. Is there a specific source for it, or is it one of those things where you can't help but feel that way?

    Gah. It had better not wind up getting discontinued. :( It's pretty much my favorite candy bar right now.

    Oh, and while I'm here, check this out.

    EDIT: And on a related note, this.

    If you haven't already done so, I'd recommend looking for a 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp bar and getting it if you find one because it's... well, it's pleasant. I don't think there's a more fitting way to describe it. It's just a pleasant candy bar.
