I know I constantly give you kids shit, and call you idiots, pathetic little faggots, and human cancer--and let's be honest here, most of you are these things--but relatively speaking, in the context of the rest of the internet, writing sites in particular? You know what? You're all pretty okay.

Thanks. <3 <3 <3

Ok fine. You are ok as well. And everyone on this site is awesome in their own way.

You guys are okay.

Don't jynx it, Mayana. This and a Steve apology for everyone are two big steps on the path to world destruction... Sheerly because it's shown that reality itself has clearly stopped giving any fucks.

I'm actually a little sad right now because I revisited a SERIOUS WRITING SITE for SERIOUS WRITERS I have lots and lots of good memories from from like a decade ago, only it blows now.

You guys, a bunch of dumb, barely literate children only just now starting to grow hair in interesting places, are all better at giving (and taking!) critiques, and at actually writing, then these pampered, creatively dead assholes who drop $$$~real cash money~$$$ on a writing site membership.

I'm not crying though. It's just dusty in here.

I posted stories there right out of high school and I'd get multiple essays just brutally fucking shredding every aspect of them and making me cry.

I'm not talking grammar and typos, this was all higher level stuff about why my plot was broken and my characters all sucked and had no agency. It was like a community full of Axioms, but with enough time to make random people personally feel bad, every single day. Best $60 I ever spent.

No, I genuinely don't understand. You just wanted to get into a big clubhouse of renowned writers? Maybe I'm just cheap, but I wouldn't pay money for that.

Try posting a story anywhere on the internet and getting a bunch of guaranteed detailed, critical feedback. Go on, try it.

...I'll wait for you to actually write a story first.

You guys are awesome

Good point there.

However, have you seen anything that I've wrote on this site? How about you shred all my existing work in the same manner the people on that past site did? Maybe it'll help you feel better.

You guys are awesome

2 years ago

See, the key is to never publish anything, read critiques everyone else makes, laugh along with them, and then publish something much harder to shred and pretend you were totally that good the entire time. As far as the record is concerned, you never learned anything new from anyone, you just made a mistake that can only be attributed to outside factors, like alcohol or unwashed hair.

I'm going to patent this method.

Pfft, you think fanstory is bad? Try logging into the Choice of Games forums once in awhile. (Seriously, try it. It's a great laugh.) Here's an example of a typical conversation you might read from your average COG members:

Newbie104:

Hi guys! I've just joined the site and I'm working on a game where you play as a young farm boy who goes adventuring with his pet dog Buster. Does this sound like a good idea for a game?

SpecialSnowflake249:

OMFG, this game doesn't give you the option to play as a non-binary, object-sexual otherkin hedgehog! I AM SO FUCKING TRIGGERED!!! I've flagged your post for being sexist, racist, homophobic and generally offensive to anybody with eyes. You should be ashamed! Educate yourself before you post anything ever again!!!

Newbie104:

... I have no idea what I did! >.<

You guys are okay.

Oh I am well aware of COG's campaign of violent retardery against its own people, it's just that I never gave a shit about COG.

Fanstory was the place I first started posting real stories on the internet (as opposed to garbage fanfic which is a phase we all go through and let's never bring it up again) and taking writing seriously, and it had a fun community so seeing it turned all insipid and dull now is a kick in the nostalgia.

You guys are okay.

2 years ago

That's a very specific number. What's the 4 for? cheeky

You guys are okay.

2 years ago

I think it's just an arbitrary number they pick over there.

Basically some of our more patriotic CYSers recently decided to troll the place a few months ago and got themselves lifetime banned from CoGraria (Unless someone is angry enough to live 204 years just to fuck with them again)

Then apparently one of their founders emailed me a polite statement about hoping that I would rein in some of our citizens because my words carry some weight over here (Glad the illusion is alive!) and peacefully co-exist since we're all "lovers of interactive fiction" and he apologized if I thought he was calling me a dick over there.

In the interest of diplomacy (And to provide less grief for JJJ for a change) I accepted his apology (I mean seriously, I'm not going to get offended at being called a dick. Lol) I told him that peaceful co-existence is of course possible. Since I'm fairly certain more than a few people here are jumping back and forth between the two sites and still buying their games on occasion even if they're mocking the CoG forums over here.

I mean hell, it's not like we're going to go bust up their place with jackboots and billy clubs.

You guys are okay.

2 years ago
Yes, excellent, this public statement of non-aggression will give you so much plausible deniability the next time a CYS funded suicide bomber names a COG account and goes off in a crowded thread.

Also CYOAs aren't interactive fiction REEEEEEE

Remember Mason failing at trolling the Warlight people?

You guys are okay.

Lol, that whole Warlight incident was pretty funny.

If I had been an admin at that time, I probably would have awarded coins some points for being so vigilant of bringing the plagiarism to light since he was the one who discovered it in the first place.

Ah what the hell, I'll do it retroactively. He pointed out the Stormfronter on here too.

You guys are okay.

What is warlight?

You guys are okay.

2 years ago

Some site that runs a Risk/conquer other countries type game.

Basically, some fucktard on their forums was posting a path in Eternal and pretending he was writing it. Coins brought it to our attention and lulz ensued.

Their mods took down the thread and the plagiarist started going on about how he felt like a piece of shit. Lol.

You guys are okay.

well eternal is a good story. who wouldn't want to plagiarize it. you should feel honored, they say mimicry is the highest form of compliment.

Yeah it got nuked after the plagiarist got caught and his own thread deleted over there. Don't know why though, it was a great CYS victory.

Lol. I remember that. Many lulz! ... I really, really don't get the point of stealing somebody else's work for any non-profit reasons though. I mean sure, the guy would've gotten loads of compliments about what an amazing writer he was, but he'd be getting compliments for something he didn't write... So really they were complimenting you, not him. What's the point? >.<

this kind of gives me an idea for a story, though. warlight infiltrates cystia and steals a tomb of great knowledge from the all powerful necromancer endmaster. endmaster then leads an army of the undead, eternals, demons, and shadows and pillage and destroy warlight to get it back.

someone should write that. not me of course i'm still trying to write my first story.

You guys are okay.

They'd never breach the gates. Their idea of strategy is to charge more guys at something than the opponent has, nevermind any fortifications or landscape advantages, meanwhile we go on for hours in WW and CC threads about how best to survive a siege and fight a war. They'll try the hit-fast-hit-hard spam game, but you know what happens when you send massive globs of men charging down a single path towards a comparatively small amount of people with forts and siege weaponry?

2/3 of the big army's guys get killed by arrows, cavalry, and flying rocks before they even get across the field to the gates, and the rest get slaughtered by spears and swords. An invasion would never work.

You guys are okay.

2 years ago

thats why i said infiltration. infiltration is a small force sneaking in.

You guys are okay.

2 years ago

Risk players and small force is an oxymoron. To them, sending a small force to counter a bigger one that isn't an attempt to goad the enemy into spreading itself too thin is synonymous with defeat. The only mechanics they know are Big Force > Little Force, troops have a set K/D ratio, and nothing can be negotiated with things like "Strategy"

You guys are okay.

2 years ago

Exactly. The only tactic they have is to throw troops at the enemy. But we, being intelligent strategical, will be able to formulate tactis and drop boiling oil on their heads as they try and climb up our massive walls of text, that EndMaster will build using his storygames.

We would never publish a game that includes or implies pedophilia.

Moreover, this is not the place to debate or discuss such things.

We take a hard line on sexual misconduct on these forums and in our games.

Finally, I'm now instituting a permanent ban on the discussion of pedophilia.

No, she's obviously been kidnapped and is being told to say these things against her will. The perpetrators are planning to soften us up with compliments, making us lower our guard before slowly eliciting information that will determine our locations, in which they will hunt us down and kidnap us as well. They're using mizal, a well-respected member of the site as a puppet for their nefarious deeds. Sure, I don't any proof or evidence to back up my claims. Sure, this type of situation is very rare. Sure, you have no reason to believe anything I have to say... But you have to! You have to believe me because your life is at risk!

Oh, no, no, no, no, this is a gradual development! This was just the first step in mizal gradually becoming more kind! They wouldn't just start telling her to immediately stop being herself!

I'd think so, with you being around 90 pounds and all. That's why I carry a protective layer of blubber for warmth, weight and protection against mild puncture wounds.

It's one of the best decisions I've ever made. You on the other hand, I could probably have you ride on my back, and we could run through the streets vanquishing evil. Then, after I've gained your unwavering friendship, knock you out with chloroform and drag you to my cellar.
