*slow clapping*

Nice save.

Comment by Sotek on Tuesday

Just so everyone is aware, Lissette and myself have slightly broke Blog rules by going off topic with regards to a discussion by Andrew Shepherd. Rather than correct myself, I though it would be more useful to ask Andrew if he would broaden his topic. (And a lot sneakier than reprimanding myself)

So, if anyone has anything they wish to add about either werewolves or vampires with regards to how they are used in stories then please add your thoughts to the discussion.

Hey hey before we're done with cheesy appreciation speeches let me have a go.

I want to say I've grown to love most of the people on here. You guys mean more to me than my own fanfiction! I shan't leave until either I'm banned or you're banned.  Idesto, Lissette, Gloom, Sotek, Okan, FishDout and the list goes on... Here's a health to you!

It can also be made out of a rare element known as sarcasmtonium.

Let's keep it classy in here.

Irony? Is that something that's got iron in it?

Comment by Accursed Gloom on August 21, 2015 at 12:48pm
I absolutely despise this community.
Irony is off the charts today.
Comment by Idesto a'Shinbira on August 21, 2015 at 12:38pm

Cheers m'dear! *HIC*

That's a good idea, actually...

Comment by Lissette on August 21, 2015 at 11:02am

You're not drunk?! Well lemme fix that.

Right. I should have said this before, but I just want to say what a fantastic little group this is. Everyone here is so supportive and friendly. There's fantastic - free! - advice for writers and great content. And the overall standard of writing here is at least as good as and often much better than professional published writers. I'm really glad to have found this little treasure! Congrats all around, especially of course to the originators and hosts. 

And no I'm not drunk, this just needed to be said
