    Hey Asty, I'm going to Barnes' and Noble's today or tomorrow and I really don't know what to get. I've heard only good things about the Twilight series so that's looking like a good choice, but then there's these Ender books I've seen you talk highly about and over the summer I got to read a little bit pf one, and even though it wasn't the first book, I couldn't help but find myself extremely interested. So my question to you, as you have read both, is which series would catch and maintain my interests while also improving my writing skills?

    Thanks again, I always love a good rant.

    It is a shame that normal users like Xanthine and I have little power to pacify someone who overreacts to some advice. It really should not take a blue name and the ability to place infractions to get someone to admit that they are wrong. But, I don't know, that's just how the world works. Very unfortunate for us.

    Hmm, I haven't really checked LiveJournal out in depth. I think I might start browsing that to kill time. Hopefully I come across some good rants ^.^

    Oh hell yes to that chair. And to the giant cannon idea.

    Pikachu + badass action speed lines is a match made in heaven, imo. And I loved the CD-i!Link reference. XD

    Interesting link, thanks.

    You would figure that proofreading before posting would be common sense, but apparently not in this case. I mean, I've hammered away 6k words in one day and still managed to proofread it, molding it into something that was not full of grammar errors, before posting it. I can't see how writing a little less than 2k words each day would be any more difficult.

    Anyway, I'm glad to see that she has owned up to her part of the drama. I feel that I can respect her a little more now that she has admitted fault. However, she still calls my request for the format change "a nasty comment", or something of the like. I guess I can't be picky about these things though...

    Hmm, I guess I was mistaken about the rules then. Perhaps I was thinking to my review of them in April, when I had noticed an update had occurred. I really can't remember. Thanks for pointing that out though.

    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...
