  1. I haven't read it yet, but judging by everyone's reactions, it seems to me that this type of person got through life by getting her own way by making a big stink, a big scene. Her daughter is learning fast. *goes to read it* Okay I read it, and I say fire the damn Principal. This Geiger character certainly did not support her staff very well. Looks like she's following her own rule. That being said, the mysterious Doctor's note could have been explained a tad better. My sister missed 2 months of school in grade 4 because she got hit by a car and was in traction for that amount of time. They passed her that year, but she had missed a great deal (She did some from her hospital bed, but really for 2 weeks she was so groggy from pain and pain killers that I don't think she was even conscious) Anyway, even the next year was difficult for her because of that work she missed, and I think that even for grade 4 work, this was pretty damn important stuff.

    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

    Ah. Got mixed up. It wasn't Jubei Chan either, although that was hilarious, I mean Arjuna. *Later* (enter, stage right) The first episode was incomprehensible. Was that a parody of Sailor Moon? (Pan up?) I think my jaw was dropped the entire episode. I can see why you liked it though, since she has red hair. Out of focus shots, camera off angle, the pov (narrator) is some kind of director/camera man? Thank God for episode 2. I nearly didn't continue. It's pretty funny stuff, and well drawn. (exit, stage left)

    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

    I've just finished eps 16 of Darker Than Black. The artwork is so clean. (Bleach is so disappointing in that way, and SO many fillers argh!) Shinsen-Subs dropped it (DTB) after eps 10 so I was scrambling around for a while tearing my hair out and considering gnawing off my right arm. Fortunately, Syndicate took it over, so yeah, I'm saved, and my right arm thanks me. (I was starting to download RAWs) I will definitely check out The Melancholy...thingy. FLCL...I started reading the Manga...wait, I think daughter #2 downloaded it. That started with a farm boy leaving for the city, right? An anime that I'm ambivalent about, but has EXCELLENT artwork, is um...what the heck was it now? J something. *goes to look it up* Hmm...I think it's "Jubei Chan" If you liked Cowboy Bebop (sheesh, what a title) you might like Scrapped Princess.

    Deleting Reviews

    No. Maybe I ought to let Orochimaru write something. I'll try the rant section one day. (I"m just to chicken to really speak my mind.) No, no that's not it. In reality, I deeply believe that being angry is a waste of time. I think I got all sarcastic and cold in the abortion thread, that's about my limit. I'm a pretty passionless person, I guess. Or maybe just not unleashed. Anyway, anger leads to anger. There's no spiraling down, just bitterness. An aftertaste of something you never recover from. I can get annoyed. I can understand PMS. I can understand pain. I don't understand revenge. I don't understand violence. er...did my mind wander off into some philosophical thing?...oops

    Self-Insertion

    I never thought of it for a fan-fic. But...In all the original work I AM every character. I take on their roles. I play them. i wonder what they did when they were kids, and what kind of players they were, and what deep dark secrets are motivating them, and what part of their character they gave up for ambition, and what part they redeemed. Who is a bad guy or a good guy is never very plain in my stories. As time goes on, the blurriness between good and evil becomes more pronounced. After all, a child is evil incarnate in one of my stories. Man that was living writing on the edge. I think about that scene in my mind every now and then, how the blades slide together, criss-crossing at the back of his neck, yet he manages to turn...ah, the power of all magic encapsulated within one. That was a dramatic moment. Then there was Andrew. Boy, did I have fun with him. But I digress. Truth be told, before the Orgy thread began, I was beginning to wonder how to go about getting everyone's permission to be inserted into a story I was contemplating. Came up in a thread a while back when I suggested we all get together in RL in someone's basement and have a party, but Red said: "And find out we're all middle-aged business men." Some ideas are like rampant terriers.

    Personal Details

    I think as an exercise in writing, that is exactly what one must do: journalize a fragment of your life. Bring it to life. Put it under the microscope and present it in an objectified way that you know is almost so painfully subjective that you have to throw in something that connects you to your reader. Like: "Okay, that was too much information, wasn't it?" Yet make it interesting I was so pumped up when I wrote my little piece, because its like a performance. Ever perform? Like, on stage, or a presentation? Man. You have no idea what practice means until then. One of the ways I was able to present my life was to have written a part of it from 20 years gone by, from a perspective of it being a memory. That way...well...lets say life wears down your "embarrassment" chip. The reviews for that work are the ones that are the most heart-pounding.

    What is in a Flame?

    I think it's more subtle than that though. I think a flame can be defined according to the receiver's reaction. For instance, the review that inflamed me did not directly insult me, but it did put up my hackles and cause me to react in similar vein. Inflammatory remarks intend to cause friction, and some authors invite that by the throwing down of the gauntlet (don't read this if you don't like such and such) Sometimes saying "don't" starts things that maybe wouldn't have started. To me, insults are already open warfare. Meh, maybe I'm wong.

    Flames

    very first story I posted, I got this. the one and only flame, defined by the same person in the next review. It actually pointed out a major flaw in my story, but the entire story was based on it. I think it might have been my opening line: So I think I invited it. XP My reply to the flame: which is SUCH a blatant lie...
  12. So then, the statistics for submission are send to eighteen, one will comment. Sounds about right. Maybe I ought to send a bunch of crap in just to see what would happen. Oh darn, how many Canadian publishers are there? Two? And in Toronto no doubt.

    Orthanc

    so THAT'S what a troll looks like. Can't believe he's out in the sun like that. Won't that turn him to stone or something?
  14. Ah, so my brain had it right. Sheesh, I'm so weird lately. Maybe I've got a brain tumor.

    A Moment Of Fear from Above

    "I'm really an old woman and I'm straight."
  16. Ah, thank you ectrae. Good to know I could rely upon you when my own brain cells have failed. Galaxy Quest. I've only seen it like five or six times. That tall chick from "Alien" is in it too. Sigourney Weaver. That's her name. (whew! nearly had to look that one up) And Leonhart, you will definitely enjoy it. and it's not the purple tentacles you have to watch out for. Its the miners. (or is that minors?) edit: I meant purple hair and huge ass snakes. (See, my brain melds things together. Did you see that?)
  17. Reminds me of that movie that comedian (Tim someone or other) made spoofing the return of ...oh darn, what the heck was it called? Anyway, the person without a last name was the expendable one. I think his name was "Guy" In the end, he actually did get a last name... Tim Allen.

    Guilty Or Not Guilty

    n/g I couldn't stand it from my evil older brothers (I'm SO proud of them now though!), so I doted on my younger siblings. guilty or not guilty: prefers being tortured that being the torturer.
