Dear reviewers:

If an ending seems ambiguous, then it's meant to be ambiguous. Not all stories get a nice happy ending wrapped up with a little bow.

If I'm writing a dream sequence, it's not going to follow the usual patterns of a plotted fic. Not to mention, if the fic's for a challenge in which one of the rules is that it should be written in a surrealistic style, that's how it's gonna be written.

I am not a conventional shipper. Stop trying to force your pairings on me. I'm just sitting here in my corner of the fandom, minding my own business. No one's making you click the link of a fic clearly marked with a pairing you don't like.

My Mac isn't a weepy, whiny bitch, but neither is she a cold-hearted killer. She actually did feel remorse over killing Sadik Fahd. So stop agreeing with her vehement denial of all regret. It's supposed to be a case of "the lady doth protest too much".

I like Ari. He used to be an interesting character whose loyalties were ambiguous. Stop ranting in my reviews about how much you hate him.

No, it's not Tony/Kate. No, it's not Harm/Mac. Deal with it.

The whole point of the fic is to write only the dialogue. It's not my fault you're too stupid to know who's speaking. Your compadres seem to understand just fine.


Wondering why I attract the batshit (or, dude, am I just too sane for the rest of the world),

You're just mean.

I am a horrible, horrible person. *grin*

Also, "fuckwit" is a lot of fun to say. "Dimwit" is just too nice for most of these people.

(Using the Abby icon because... "Gallipoligallipolligallipoligallipoli--" *grin* I love Abby.)

One more thing...
I like "fuckwit". It will go nicely with my favorite - "fucktard".

Re: One more thing...
Fuckwit and fucktard are two awesome words. I often use them while I'm driving! :p

Dude, we all got fucked out of our pairings. Why the hell are they still on the Gibbs/Kate shippers cases? Can't we unite in the screwedness?

Denial isn't a bad thing, really it's not. It's like watching Posse Commitatus up to the last 5 minutes, right up to when Simon ties up the robber and asks for the Milky Way. Or actually, the whole last episode of JAG.

If you don't see it happen, or don't acknowledge it, it just doesn't exist.

I agree that just about everybody's ship was screwed up. But really, "canon" is just a state of mind.

This is true, but the canon in your mind doesn't give your permission to harass people because they don't like your pairing. I just think we could all share the grief or something. *g*

I agree with everything you've said, Shannon! I'll read a fic based on any pairing, just to see how the author's written it. It'll make the reader wonder if a certain couple could ever be together.

As for butchering the English language, it's the main reason I avoid fanfiction.net now. I used to check that site out daily, but I stopped doing that a while ago. Too many people posting the crappiest stories I've ever read kept me away!

One of my favorite insults.

I cannot stand stupid people who don't know when to back off, keep their mouths shut, or just take a long walk off a short pier and leave the rest of us the hell alone. If you don't understand a well-written fic by a talented author then it's because you're simply too stupid to follow it. Don't blame it on the author. Especially when said author knows more about grammar, syntax, and plot than you ever will.

And I have NO patience for the fucktards who try to force pairings on others. If you don't like someone's pairing or fandom keep your friggin' mouth shut about it because what someone else likes or doesn't like is none of your business. I'll read pretty much any pairing as long as I know the author is a decent writer and isn't going to butcher the characterization and I have never commented negatively on someone liking a pairing that I'm not fond of. Hell, I understand not being popular in fandom circles...I'm a slasher and damn proud of it so I catch tons of crap from others in fandoms. I'm not about to pass judgement on anyone else.
