There's going to be a new series of Animaniacs, apparently.

nothing is going to happen to your original dvds.

Worry not.
New people would like a chance to work with classic material.

This. This is... you really said this. You. Freehold. Wow.

So you secretly do like Whedonisms, after all!

Oh no you didnt.

A WORLD of difference exists between me wanting to see(or being okay with) new writers getting a crack at old material that is safely ensconced in DVD form (and therefore can be safely be ignored if it sucks)and me being down with some bald, bearded hack filing the serial number off of a work he enjoys and slapping his name on it while a herd of mouth breathing, cud chewing, bad knit hat wearing, parasol swinging dullards bleat that this is the most original thing that ever thinged and plaster the word "coincidence" over the wikipedia page denoting the similarities to the work it is CLEARLY and DIRECTLY lifted from with a WEAK side of "w-well, theres nothing new under the sun, you know" to defend the mouldering paradeity they undulate about, speaking his revered name in hushed whispers in the hopes that one day the anime he watches may be made into live action american television with the occasional name change.

So I guess you won't be seeing the upcoming Batgirl movie?

True Batgirl fans are already concerned. They will fight the Whedony menace in my stead.


You tore your clothes off in a fit of celebration.

Of course, I have gotten many, many rants from her over the fact that my school taught it as-written as a tale of Witch Trials-era New England and not, at all, as an allegory for the Red Scare.

Did your teacher also have to explain, at least once a week, that reading the book doesn't convert one to witchcraft?

Hah, no, thank goodness.

Holy cow. Up until just now, I honestly did not know there was any reason for your hatred of Whedon. I've got to ask more questions.

So in the vein of asking more questions...where did Whedon yoink, say, Buffy (not a fan) and Doll House (yes a fan) from? I admit, I tend to be oblivious to these sort of things.

I'd feel bad about so many orders in a day, but I know that when I have multiple orders come in on the same day they usually group them into one box.

Seconded. I readily admit to having loved Firefly, Buffy, and much of Dollhouse, as well as SHIELD.

But if there is source material from which it was untimely ripped, well, I feel like someone who has always liked Forbidden Planet who one day finds out there is this play called The Tempest...

i could have sworn i had already gone down this path with everyone, but I'll do it again. Buffy is painfully ripped from Ghost Sweeper Mikami (secondary characters, more OVA than TV series if memory serves) and Devil Hunter Yohko(original, not so much 2-5). Dollhouse was better the first time around when it was Gunslinger Girl.

This is the single sexiest thing anyone on this forum has ever said to me. And I hang out in the succubus in a grapple thread.

BTW, if not for Outlaw Star, there would be no Firefly. The wiki swears its all a coincidence, however.

i am using the lamy joy pen, with a refillable ink reservoir. I write with it everyday. I love it so much that even when my boss told me he didnt want me writing on official paperwork in it (philistine), I didnt mind. Because writing in ball point pen (like a philistine) just makes me appreciate my pen MORE. Writing with it is like breathing. The pen glides over the page. It isn't just jotting down things for later it is....FUN. I can FEEL the ideas flowing out of my head. I no longer worry about forgetting ideas, I can sketch them out now. The pen is just...Harmonious.

Link me to your pen!

It's 8:26 in the morning, I'm doing laundry in the hostel on vacation, and I'm stuch here for at least another hour and a half. Should I start drinking?

Well, this isn't at all what I thought I'd be doing when I left the hostel today, but I'm not really upset. I set out for the paleontology museum and somehow ended up in the zoo. No matter. There's two rare species of feline I've never seen before here, two species of feline I don't see enough, yaks, flamingos, and kangaroos, and I can still get to the paleontology museum in plenty of time.

For a cat that is entirely normal. Sex is a... complex issue for cats. For a snow leopard, I have no idea.

Aaaaand.... we're off again!

In my "retirement" letter, I explicitly said TO Whingey Wizard, "Please do not contact me with any questions less than 48 hours from the game, as I am busy doing prep work and will not have time to address them properly."

So today's game day, I check my e-mail, and, yep, sure enough, series of questions and complaints from Whingey.

I sent him a mild nastygram, but I swear one of these days I'm just going to say, "Whelp, sorry guys! No game today! I was too busy answering Whingey's questions to do any prep work!"

EDIT: And just so's we're clear, they're never simple, "Remind me what happened last time?" questions. They're always, "Oh, by the way, I plan on doing this totally-unexpected thing next session, so can you re-do all your prep work and rewrite the plan for the day to accommodate me?"

Urgh that's hard. I hate having to wing things on the fly, NH. Though the times I have it hasn't turned out too bad.

And What about snow leopards? How did they end up in France's zoo?

Oh my HS dungeon run - me thinks Druid is more suited to my playstyle. Did 7/8 on the first try, actually completed it at BF's house.

When it comes to deck building, he's a LOT better then I am...I suspect maybe because he likes to combo more + he's a long time Magic the Gathering player.

There is a point where the pressure turns Hydrogen into a metal. And some smaller Gas Giants may have rocky surfaces.

Trying for less explicit than that is much easier, and you're more likely to get the message across ;)

its weird. Im the opposite. Dont ask me questions weeks in advance regarding the game, ask me a day or two before so I have everything in front of me and I can answer questions better- and make some changes if necessary.

GO TEAM CHAOS!

Oh, that's just it. I don't. I respond with a, "No, and this is why not."

It's just that I'm tired of trying to say, "You're a power-gaming self-entitled munchkin troll," without being quite that explicit.

Maybe you need to move the goalpost?

Try saying "F%#$! You're a f%#$ing-power-f%#$ing-gaming f%#$ing self-f%#$ing-entitled f%#$ing munchkin f%#$ing troll f%#$! How about f%#$ing getting your f%#$ing head f%#$ing out of your f%#$ing a%$ and f%#$ing acting like a normal f%#$ing player for f%#$ing once in your f%#$ing life? F%#$!"

Trying for less explicit than that is much easier, and you're more likely to get the message across ;)

Well, the way I look at it is: We have a grand total of 12 sessions left, at which point I will never GM for nor game with him again. I will have preserved a friendship and lisamarlene's sanity, and somewhere the karma gods will say, "Good for taking one for the team, NH."

Doesn't mean I don't get to vent about it for the next 12 sessions.

(Though I'm feeling pretty pissy today. If he starts up with his whole, "If I'm not the center of attention I'm going to interrupt everyone else at the table until I am," BS, I'm going to go ahead and issue him a warning, then implement "kid rules" on him: If you interrupt another player, you take 10 non-healable hit points. If you die from this damage, you are non-resurrectible. I hope it drives the point home. More likely he'll throw a hissy fit, pack up his things, and storm home. But I'd at least like the other players at the table to have a chance at some RP and closure.)
