Yami's gotten emo again!

It's so unfair, world! Yami is being persecuted unfairly! She never said any of that stuff! It was her identical twin hacking her account you guys obviously duh! OPPRESSION!

"But really I wonder how 'I nearly thought tl;dr' turned into omg purple drake is whining, he's a cuntfuck who's flooding my story with 6+ pages of reviews! omg shut uppppp stop pointing out my proooobleeeeems I am ignooorriiiing them like uuuu, I only listen to saaaandra cuz I allowed her to beta! and all this shit."

We need a Yami bingo made up.

The crazy part is, that's not even the most WTFy thing she's got up. No, that honor would have to go to the the lovely pair of posts where she bitched about being denied health insurance (summary: it is all the unwed mothers' fault), then next post went OMG TEH OBAMARXIST WILL TAKE UR MONEYS N U WILL DESERVES IT!!! btw got welfare insurance guys. SOCIALISM IS WRONG!

...countdown to her switching to yet another journal in three, two...

Actually, we should take bets on which comes first, yams-potato.livejournal.com or the Serebii flounce?

M.M-chan just banned me from posting on his journal midway through our discussions! (Also, he deleted the post where I said this was the funniest thing I'd seen all week. I cry many emo tears of sadness over this. T_T Seriously, the post was the best thing on the entry.)

Anyone else or am I just so much more awesome than the rest of the posters?

This whole thing, it's just beautiful. I love watching arguments where both sides are so full of suck and fail.

Oh, funny funny illustrious M.M., you posting crazy long IM convos in an attempt to garner support then dealing with all complaints through PMs no one's allowed to repeat, there is nothing pathetic or hypocritical about any of that. You're like one of Serebii's avatars or something, given life when the stupidity reached critical mass. A cute little ball of walking Serebiifail.

There is not enough :D in the world.

I'm not going to call you, M.M., a dogfucker. I'm just going to think you are, and tell you I'm thinking you are, and tell everyone else that I'm thinking you are. But I'm totally not calling you one, and I'm totally not going to be calling you one again when I repost the sentence to my livejournal.

In other news, no, M. "My belief in your lackeyism, let me tell you about it" M. is not particularly quick on the uptake. Or, possibly, particularly anything on the uptake. I admit he never struck me as bright over on Serebii, but this is a new low, and more importantly, is not even amusing in its inanity. Good odds that the newest iteration reproduced above meets about as much comprehension as the previous few, but at least this one amused me.

Perhaps we can start a betting pool on how many weeks it takes him to grasp the concepts involved here. My money's on "never".

So there's some more lulzy stuff happening. ^_^ I was worried once the thing with Silawen died down it'd be done, but ha! My evil meany-ness has evidently outlasted her feeble attempts at usurping my throne of being hated.

For starters, there's this review )

I'm not quite sure where "The story wasn't finished for a year" = "You spent an entire year just writing the story" comes from. Evidently, other people have way more work ethic than I do. Also, they're really, really slow.

Bonus lulz can be found in the fact that this person (yes, I know I should try to figure it out, but tired, remember) is apparently trying to convince me my bit about Serebiifen is an inaccurate generalization. By behaving like why I hate Serebiifen. The fail blinds.

Probably started off over in this Serebii thread here. (Over here Unoriginality is mentioned, which is probably why the review is there rather than on Lucki, where it'd make marginally more sense.)

There's also some stuff on the Yami drama on Psychic's lj, and a bit back is some recounting of a few other well known dustups. I should be sympathetic for the whole "unfairly blamed despite best efforts" bit, but reading them all I get is "after my numerous acts of incredible favoritism, they were still jerks to me and kept causing more trouble". (The case is not helped by the fact that this hasn't so much "changed" as "moderately toned down, slightly, for these particular people". I suppose arguably it suggests this idea wasn't the best, but it seems to be because it didn't work out, more than that the act itself was wrong.) It is kind of interesting in that it suggests the old-school alliance system is dissolving, but seeing as this took years to finally out itself, there's no reason to think there isn't something similar going on right now that replaced it and won't be really known until it's been around a few years.

Which is all interesting in light of the discussion going on in whinier corners of lj about anon communities, namely yet another point in favor of them considering how incredibly fast such alliances seem to appear on any forum and how inevitably toxic they seem to be.

So it's really hot all of a sudden here, after being really cold. Yesterday I started to get heatstroke (this probably had more to do with dehydration than heat, which in turn probably had more to do with lack of salt than water). Anyway, fun.

I'd gotten bored of stalking Silawen's reviews and stopped paying attention to Serebii. But then enablers showed up and I got dragged back in for some quick perusal.

Of interest:

1) Why is it my name always gets weird misspellings? How can you misspell it? You're reading it! It's written right there! That's the spelling! AjhwihfkssjfeeowOOJKDHW!

2) It can't be a OT cliche because I did it in my OT fic! (How dare you insult me by mentioning it you jerk!)

...also I need to answer my email and go review people.

HEY GUYS IT TURNS OUT I'M ONE OF SILAWEN'S MINDLESS GROUPIES. I KNOW RIGHT? I WAS SURPRISED TOO, BUT IT'S TRUE. SO I THINK THIS MEANS NOTHING I SAY IS ACTUALLY "ME" SAYING IT. SILAWEN MUST HAVE ORDERED THIS. I KNOW SHE'S ASLEEP RIGHT NOW BUT SHE DID IT ANYWAY, OR MAYBE SHE'S JUST PRETENDING TO BE ASLEEP. SOMETHING. BECAUSE I'M MINDLESS SO CLEARLY THERE IS SOMEONE PULLING MY STRINGS IN ORDER FOR ME TO BE POSTING. ALSO LET'S JUST SAY IT APPLIES TO ALL MY PAST POSTS BECAUSE APPARENTLY BLAMING HER FOR EVERYTHING IS THE NEW BLACK. OR PINK, I THINK PINK WAS THE NEW BLACK, OR WAS IT GREEN?

srsly, pokemon fandom, why can't we have sockpuppet accusations like a proper fandom? sockpuppets are so much more dignified. no one's ever going to take us seriously if we've just got mindless groupies and posses and ringleaders. the harry potter fandom is laughing at as right now, you know.

So there's some fresh lolarity going on with Silawen now.

It's wrong I kind of want to write up sue reports on all of them and post it to [livejournal.com profile] marysues, right?

Chapter Six of Inheritors is up.

So, first I had each chapter having half the readers of last time. Then all chapters past the first had almost the exact same number. And now the fourth chapter has more hits than the third, so I think pattern has given way to chaos.

Also, Silawen was nice enough to alert me to a new review over on Serebii. It is made of lol. Highlights include demanding more description despite completely missing half the description in the current version (or even the previous review where I correct the same mistake and say Mada is called he) and accusing me of using a thesaurus, which makes me really sad for humanity.

Preserved for posterity because it is awesome )

(In fairness, I'm not sure how much of this review was him just trying to find things to be bitchy about and how much was honest, so it's possible he's not totally incompetent and just happened to go out of his way to not like the story. For those who follow Serebii - is Diddy on the opposite side of anything Irin was arguing about?)

Posted the first chapter of Inheritors over on FFN. Pit of voles it may be, but I think we've conclusively proven that comparatively, voles are pretty smart for the fandom.

Did consider having fun by trying to convince people Irin isn't the same person as Farla, (I mean, my IP is the school's, it's not like "oh, that's my friend who I'm in close contact with" is a hard sell here). But since my original banning was pretty much mod despotism, I imagine it's a semantic difference anyway and knowing me/being on my side is a quasi-bannable offense.

Plus, I really do find it awesome that I got banned for being myself. Clearly the forums were traumatized from last time, and my name is spoken in whispers among the average modship. It's like regular internet fame but somehow much, much more funny.

(All this in mind - should I unlock past entries where we were chattering about this, or is it better to keep that stuff out of sight, Serebii being as it is?)

Also, because I can't go without throwing more fuel on the fire of crazy: I think I'll do this again next year or so, as Redux.
