Speaking of "The Dark Lord's Blog" you should ttly write "Dumbledore's Blog" or "Draco's Blog" or something like that. Oh "Minerva's Blog":D
Author's Response: Ooh... I wonder whose blog I shall do... I actually wrote a Minerva McGonagall story awhile ago, and if I ever have the time to type it, I'll probably post it at some point.
I was told that Lord Unknown had posted a review and (Not that its my business) I was a trifle curious about your response.
Now, what is my relationship to Lord Unknown? Simple: The looney is my cousin... his real name's Zarif. He's been Lord Unknown ever since we first began playing MP in Age of Empires with each other (I was called God's Hammer... maggoty name).
Nice fellow, though (Except when he's wishing people 'Happy Sad Day'-that's just annoying).
Author's Response: Happy Sad Day... that's a new one. I read your author's bio, by the way. You remind me eerily of my pen pal. Including your birthday... I was so elated when I saw I was mentioned that I did a weird little disco dance in my seat and scared away my friend at the next computer. Marvin the Paranoid Android rocks. I have a picture of him in my avatar on all of the websites I belong to.
This is really good. i liked it. Keep up the good work.
Author's Response: Thanks! I'll try to. (Nice username, by the way.)
Author's Response: Yay, thanks! It's cool to see familiar... usernames who reviewed "The Dark Lord's Blog."
OH MY GOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! (i started with those opening three words on your other review too! haha) this was SOOOOOOOOOO cool! It was so well written and really funny and just great! It was so great! SO AWESOME! You're really good! Write some more, more, MORE!!!!!
Author's Response: WOWSERS! Thank you so much! I like your poetry, too!
To quote the great Luna Lovegood- "That was funny!"
Author's Response: Thank you so much! And wow, a Luna quote! You make me blush.
Ah... Bill Shakespeare. Can one describe this TITAN of the literary world in but a few sentences? Why, yes one can.
Shakespeare's plays are good... as long as they are not romance stories. (NOW, I have nothing against love stories- my personal favorite was 'The Tale of Beren and Luthien' - its in Tolkien' s 'The Silmarillion'. Read it, you'll be proud of yourself). Its just that Shakespeare's love stories tend to be a little... 'unusual', shall we say? ('As You Like It'... no, I did NOT 'like it'.). And his sonnets are also a little...
But Macbeth and Hamlet? Hamlet I liked (Gothic Tragedy). Macbeth I disliked, but I give it credit (The part about the forest of something-or-other going to somewhere-or-other inspired Tolkien's ents, you know.)
However, I liked 'Julius Ceasar'. I shall never forget: "Let me have men about me that are fat, sleek-headed men, such as sleep a-nights. Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look; he thinks too much. such men are dangerous."
He wants... fat people... around him..? And he hated Cassius because he was thin... and hungry?
Author's Response: Maybe he was jealous of Cassius, and he wanted to be surrounded by fat people so he’d look thinner? 0_o Yeah, I’m not a big fan of romance, maybe because I’m extremely immature and still yell “COOTIES!” every time I see people snogging in the halls. I did like “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” though, because it had all of the fantasy characters and some quite funny parts. I laughed at what you said about “As You Like It”—we had to read it in English last year, and it was just so randomly pointless. Especially Touchstone’s monologue about pancakes and mustard. And, wow, my mum always says I won’t learn any literary skills from writing fanfiction. Well, here I am discussing Shakespeare! (*Will read The Silmarillion soon*)
Yes, Schmergo, your least favorite reviewer is back! I am like one of those smiling door-to-door salesmen: persistant and obnoxious!
Anyway, this is a good poem. I'm not much of a poetry fan ("Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?"... WHATS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE?) myself, but I think I know a good poem when I see one, and I have seen one: It's right here!
I believe I sense some Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Wierd Al Yankovich influences here. Am I right?
Anyway, I humbly invite you to read my own story when they validate it... which shouldn't take much longer (Submitted it last Thursday). Will they mail me or something when they approve it?
Author's Response: Oh, you're not my least favourite reviewer! In fact, I enjoy your reviews. Thanks for the compliments! I love Hitchhiker's Guide and Weird Al. ^_^ But actually, I do also enjoy Shakespeare... if you've ever read Hamlet or MacBeth, those are really good. Also incredibly bloody. Everyone dies in Hamlet except for some guy named Horatio and some really minor characters. They SHOULD mail you when your story's validated, but I never seem to get emails, so I always favourite my own stories so that I'll get email when they're updated.
Stupid ballad - but then, it's meant to be stupid, isn't it?
Author's Response: Yes it is. Thanks for your review... I think.
teeeheee! it's me again! I was reading your profile. (not in a stalking-like way...) and I saw that you had written another story, so I decided to read it. this was a really funny "ballad", I espiecally liked the "And these nice men WHO I DID NOT BRIBE/ Should all agree with me." LOL! and the hair... SO Lucius. no wonder his wife's name is Narcissa! greatilicious jobacherrio!
by now,Imy exclamation point finger is suffering from painful convulsions and is about to start a strike of over working, so I'd better go! (i couldn't resist)
ps: I told my brother about the toaster thing, (he's 7), and one time when my mom wasn't looking, he filled the toaster with a fluff (like melted marshmellows, it ROCKS!) and purple grapes, and then turned it on! (exclamation finger coughs *strike*) the smell was.... horrible. the entire house stank for days! (*ahem*) I blame you, Shmergo_the_Impaler! (*AHEM*) ~ implalas are quite cute tho) tata!!!!
*we are over worked, we are overworked! yeah, yeah YEAH!*
Author's Response: Ahahaha... your review made my night! I'm glad you liked the poem, and I'm sorry about your finger and your toaster. I have to say, though, your brother sounds like a pretty cool kid. I really like marshmallow fluff. I sometimes eat it in a sandwich with peanut butter. ^_^
Author's Response: Thank you! :)
By the way, insipid means boring, flat, without fizz. Do you realize that, mockturtle?
Author's Response: I think mock_turtle was making a joke. I want to make a banner of that, though. It's like saying, "Awesome! Awe-inspiring! Awful!"
That's funny. Awesome.10000000/10
Author's Response: YAYYY! Thank you!
*gasps for air* Oh, that was beautiful. Lustrous hair... Indeed, indeed. xD Great work here!
Author's Response: Why thank you! For more on Lucius's lusciously lustrous hair, go here:http://sherbet-lemon.net/vid.php and click on the video called 'Hair." It's very fun. :)
oh, it is so...inspired...insightful...insipid...
Author's Response: Why thank you. I should put that in the summary. According to mock_turtle, this is inspired...insightful...insipid... ^_^
oh my. brilliantness at its best. why don't I read more poetry? *bad Juli* 10/10 for Shmergo on this one! can't wait to see what else you come up with...
Author's Response: Thank you! I don't actually read poetry very much, either. I didn't even know that there WAS a poetry section on MNFF until someone told me to submit this one!
Ha, that was a suprise after all of the angsty poems I've been reading.
Although it is OOC, it was a great light poem that made me laugh. I imagine you were high on sugar when you wrote this, correct?
Author's Response: Haha, thank you! I like to make people laugh. However, I wasn't exactly high on sugar. I was HIGH ON LIFE. Not the cereal. Just, being alive. (High on life is the name of a Girl Scouts badge that my friend and I like to make fun of.)
Haha! Poor Lucius. That was very cute. Very OOC, but very cute. I enjoyed it. :D
Author's Response: Thank you... and if you think THIS portrayal of Lucius is OOC, I don't want to hear what you thought of him in "The Dark Lord's Blog!"
You're brilliant Schmerg. I think the author's note was the best part of this one.
Author's Response: Thank you! This is probably the only time ever that the author's note is the best part of a fanfic...
That was neat - it totally made me smile. You have a wonderful sense of humor. Nice job with the rhyming scheme, and with poking fun at Lucius Malfoy! Good luck with future poems! ~Gina :)
Author's Response: Thank you! Lucius is one of my favourites. ^_^
