  1. I just sifted through my saved files but found only incomplete drafts of Jayrich's & Nurse Katie's submissions. Sadly it was the collapse of WWOEC that made me more careful about saving copies of everything I participated in or reviewed. Nurse Katie is still somewhat active on Palcomix and may be willing to share. As for Jayrich, unfortunately, he hasn't made an appearance in years. I do have an old e-mail address for him that I can try if either of you would like. EDIT: Oh, Jayrich has an account here too, but I can’t find it there. (According to my old notes the story he was working on was never finished. )
  2. “It's ironic that the Team Griffin girls were the underdogs until Meg literally got under dogs." How did this not occur to me until now!!!???
  3. I’m sure that’s true.  …especially if he had already been a little turned on by the video – then instantly horrified to realize that his baby sister's involvement made him insane with lust! (One can dream… )
  4. It’s “Ghastly’s Ghastly Comic” from way long ago: and so on.
  5. Never let Nort babysit your kids… unless you need someone to put some fear and/or tentacles into your disobedient teens.
  6. Oh, I’m sure Candace will be feeling that a lot!
  7. That's fine, especially if that's what works for you at the moment. I think you're just honing your already incredible superpower. (You know what happens to my brain just from reading different stories around the same time. ) Best of luck with NaNoWriMo too.
  8. Well freakin' happy birthday, you whippersnapper! Usually I try to let others have a say if I'm involved with a story, plus as you've seen from my other recent reviews, my concentration isn't working so well these days, but I do have good things to say about the crossover (even if I repeat myself a bit). I really thought it'd get more love too. Bimbo – WHERE! Dark seems like a very good way to go for Halloween, though sometimes you're a bit too good at it. (Which is actually perfect… I think. ) Now get out there and have some fun! …within the pandemic safety restrictions for your area, of course. (Besides, with everyone in masks you can't really tell who the vampires/demons/aliens/exes/zombies are.)
  9. Ah, I think my thought was edited by Mr. Cockup: Lincoln, Jordan, and Stella all have had moments where they consciously can't believe how forward or pushy they're being in the moment (or even well in advance with Stella). A youngster usually only feels that in retrospect. (And an oldster doesn't feel that often enough.) But again, when the thought pops up usually something else does too. I won't ask for a spoiler because it could be many things, so I'll just call them "options" for now.
  10. Uhm… How exactly did you interpret my comment there as meaning something different? To me, it's just a more complimentary way of saying the same thing…no? (Sometimes I seriously wonder if I've had a stroke and developed some subtle aphasia.)
  11. I'm very sorry, man. Best wishes to you and all the others.
  12. It makes perfect sense to me, akin to why we always have really good thoughts while in the middle of a shower or waiting in an elevator. Taking a break from thinking allows the "background processing" in the brain to chew on it before pushing it into the conscious level. (Some neuroscientists may be able to put it in better words.) Though the pandemic and quarantine doesn't make as big an impact on my life, it's still tough not to have an hour or two away from my computer each day, whether I'm filling my brain with lemons & podcasts or just running between errands. No doubt another part of it is that we kind of feel like we have to be working all of the time "because there's no excuse not to." Maybe a nap or just trying to relax and stop thinking for half an hour each day (very hard at first) will fill that time. Glad you're still getting some physical activity though, harrowing as it may be. Anyway, best of luck with it. If you stumble across something that works then be sure to share.
  13. Hmmm, in what sense? It feels like I can feel my way around writing a story, but I don't know the names or proper applications of different aspects of Storytelling philosophy. Sure, I've heard of "Hero's Journey," "Man vs. ___" and all that, but there are so many things about pacing, structure, point of view, etc. that I can't name and can only clumsily feel my way around. Sure, it seems to work to a point, but when it comes time to deconstruct something so that I can use it more effectively, I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing. Kind of like life in general I suppose. No big Boobs!
  14. re: The Dark Side of the Bright Side Okay, "fitting end" made me laugh harder than I have in a long time. So thanks for that. Anyway, I am pleasantly surprised that you checked this one out even after knowing the darker themes. Besides, reading/listening to your stories is always a pleasure. I'm glad you enjoyed it too. I'm glad that the characters mostly clicked with their behavior in the actual show. The big differences are because this story was requested by Tommy Simms, based on his "Working Girl Ruby" picture and the ficlet he made for it later (see below). With that to start from, I didn't try to come up with any reasons for Skull Boy's and Misery's changes. Someone quickly pointed out that an "Alternate Universe" tag was needed and that seemed like it should cinch it. In the end, for Misery I just drew on what I know about Major Depressive Disorder and thought how the volatile household situation would affect her, which could easily drive her to what Tommy had suggested. As for Skullboy, I'd hoped that "A witch did it!" and then him going way overboard would be enough of an explanation. (I mean, Skull Boy taking things too far is pretty canon.) I just don't want to come up with something too contrived (in yet another story ). Still if a better reason ever comes to mind I'll definitely run it by you. Now I just feel sorry for Boner Humerus since if he ever tried to move into Gloom Manor everyone but Ruby would veto that in a heartbeat. At least he should be happy knowing that there are ladies who would enjoy playing with his coccyx and sacrum as long as he lays off the vinegar. (In reality it takes several days for a bone to turn rubbery, but "cartoon physics" and all that.) Certainly he'd also be a lot nicer to Misery than Tino from The Weekenders was. (BTW the other boy with a funny shaped head was Arnold Shortman from Hey Arnold! while the other dudes were just random.) Thank you for giving this story a try, and for the kind comments on it.
  15. Oh no, I wouldn't beat them or anything like that. (…unless they really were acting under orders, but their flippant attitude really seemed more like they just were going to do what they wanted.) Punishments need to be constructive… and creative. There are way too many people who love to say, “My parents used to beat the crap out of me all the time and I turned out okay!” followed by *glug*glug*glug* before bitching about being fired from every job they've ever had and how their exes and children have permanent restraining orders against them. "Lothar of the Hill People" was a recurring sketch on Saturday Night Live back in '89-90, with Mike Meyers in the titular role. It looks NBC has managed to keep it off YouTube for now.
