Updates and Hilarity

So obviously we are off the schedule!

The plan to be able to get some work done by February is obviously bust. That’s because about a day after my last post, we had a nice little round of lay-offs, and then another, and now I’m doing the work of two people and getting buried in additional work.

The good news is that I’m pretty much done with the next chapter of OSABC and the Cerberus Files: Humanity about the SA military. I just need to clean them up this weekend.

I also got a set of absolutely hilarious reviews from some attention whore on FF.net who thinks I or anyone else gives a single flying fuck about his opinions.

I refuse to listen to anyone who has nothing to say. I will pay attention to those comments that have a modicum of intellectual underpinning.  So I’ll address the few things he brought up that he clearly misunderstood.

1) Shepard is lesbian:  Shepard spent her youth being sexually abused by males. She is bi-sexual and probably was that way at birth, but the events she went through in her early life shaped her as well. I am fully aware that rape does not one make someone a lesbian. However, it will make a person with bisexual tendencies more likely to pursue female rather than male relationships.

2) Hilarious lack of information on the military:  I’m a functional paranoid and they let me in. The military (especially in times of war and when recruiting is low) has very low standards for entry. That’s why we have so many issues today with rape, abuses, drug abuse, etc.  As to the PT part, there are women TODAY who can do that workout, you idiot.

3) Rape charges: Shepard was (and is) dysfunctional on several levels. Psychologically speaking she was trying to perform role based reclamation, which is unhealthy but hardly unusual for victims of abuse.

I remain amused at the number of people thinking the fact that they can hold an opinion means anyone else is entitled to bother to listen to it, especially when it’s riddled with racist, sexist, bigoted overtones.

And of course, he/she/it calls me out on Christianity, basically saying I can’t be a Christian if I don’t act like the fucking Westboro Baptist Church.

  1. My favorites are:

    “You don’t even look black. You look Hispanic.”

    I wanted this person to say Mexican so bad. Would’ve been so much funnier.

    “Abuse of ellipses here. Either they all have asthma or they’re having seizures.”

    “It’s so…fan-ficcish. Why does it even matter?”

    “And of course there has to be lesbianism. I guess your biology course didn’t tell you that lifestyle isn’t healthy. ”

    Fun Fact of the Day: Homosexuality reduces the chances of pregnancy, miscarriages, and death by childbirth by 100%!

    Oh man, this was so damn funny. Great way to start the day.

  2. It’s worth the wait, your stories are great. Whoever that person is who left those reviews is the most ignorant sounding person. Don’t let it bother you, like you said they are an attention whore.

  3. You know, i’m half temped to go back and read every dam review there is for OSABC just for the fucking hilarity.

  4. That “Fox Familiar” assclown was on my blocklist from the second I saw him (on a new piece called “Breathe”, which reminded me somewhat of your writing). Dude needs a white phosphorous suppository, which I’d be only too happy to provide. Either way I’ve never seen someone with such a pathological resentment to “feminism”, with only the vaguest definition for what that even means.

  5. Hoping that we haven’t seen the last chapter on OSABC. You’ve got great talent as a writer and it would just suck to see the ballad of Sara end here.

    Trolls are trolls, they just want attention- and though it would be quite entertaining to stick them on a lit Roman candle and tell them to enjoy the ride, why fight against an opponent you so obviously outclass?

    I won’t ask for the next chapter- you’ll put it up when it’s good and ready, and I’ll read it when you do, and it’ll be awesome. Thanks for sharing it with us!
