I received the following email about an hour ago, but I could only bring it up now because I needed that span of time to process it properly. All names have been changed to protect the innocent. Except mine. Because, y'know, I don't care if you know my so-called penname. The letter itself is in italics. My commentary? Very much not. For the record, I don't think I'm usually this mean. This email, however, managed to catch me at a Rather Bad Time. So, um, enter not-nice!me?

Hawk Cloud-sama!!!

This usually doesn't bug me, but the last name of my penname is spelled with a 'w' -- "Clowd". There is a reason for this, and it's not because I don't know how to spell. Again, this usually doesn't bug me. What bugs me is that you [the writer] tacked a "-sama" to the end of my name, which annoys the hell out of me. One, I haven't done anything to deserve such a title. Two, I'm fairly sure that if you truly considered me worthy of the -sama, you would know how to spell my penname correctly.

I just read some of your fan fiction on FanFiction (dot) net and I really liked it all. :) I liked your Garvitation fic alot.

I don't write for Garvitation. I write for Gravitation; is that what you meant? I'll excuse the typo this time, but if "a lot" turns into one word rather than two again in this email, I will spork you.

Lmao it was really good.

...Wait, is that a compliment or are you making fun of me? Because I'm okay with either one. I just want to know.

It was so good that I cant ever write fic again b/c yours will be better lol.

I really wish I could use that logic. "Hey, Neil Gaiman! Your books are so good that I can never write anything ever again because you have superior skills!" I could get out of a lot of things with that excuse. "I can never clean the cat boxes again -- you're so much better at it!" "I can never have the Red Death ever again -- you go through it so much more gracefully than I do!" Seriously, though. Does that ever work?

I write fic and if u want to read it its at [link]. Your writing is really good!!!

Yay self-promotion! XD Sadly, the randomly inserted net speak and lack of apostrophes has turned me off fanfic forever, so I can never have the pleasure of reading your work. (... "I can never read fanfic again -- you're so much better at enjoying it than I am!")

Ok thanks for reading. :) Love, [name].

Aw, I got love from a complete stranger for things I would do for fun anyway! It's like working at the Writing Center all over again. ^___^ I do have to ask, though -- are you thanking me for reading your email or (in the flavour of true optimism) your fic? Just wondering.


Right, so that's enough of that. ^^ Now that I've convinced you all that I'm a mean, terrible person, I'll close my web browser, finish up what I'm doing with the Junior Editions site, and go to bed. Night!

Right. I've been putting this off long enough, so here goes. The following is the commentary for "The Reason Roy Started Keeping Lube in His Desk Drawer" requested by [livejournal.com profile] wicked_pistil. After this, I have two drabbles to write. They will be held off until after I've done the beta work and stuff I've promised various other people. Beta-ing is more important than drabbles. (Sorry!)

Commentary for 'The Reason Roy Started Keeping Lube in His Desk Drawer' )

So that was the commentary! I hope you enjoyed it. ^.^ Um. If anyone else would like to request a commentary, the post is still open. Go here.

...In other news, one of the sweetest girls I know gave me a CD full of uber-hardcore gangster rap. I'm not sure what to think of that, but it's somewhat endearing. In that way that breaks my brain a little.
