Ohhhhhhh, I see what you're doing.  I thought you were just
abbreviating her saying "by the way".   I use WTF myself!  It's cool,
but if you do that, you should capitalize it (like I did in my
comment, thus obscuring what, exactly, I was complaining about).

The first I'd spell out as "lawl", just to make sure readers got that
it wasn't the letters.

Fair enough~

Hmmmmm.  Possibly, non-intelligent life could survive the lack of
drama; of course, IIRC, we saw plants and stuff dying in LOH (I really
need to re-read that too), so... hmmm.

You'd say "is no fish" if you were talking about a single, specific
fish.  If you're talking about fish in general, you'd say "are no
fish". >.>

It's true, it's true.  Really, it's something that's hard to help,
given your self-imposed word limits.

Andrew "NO .SIG MAN" "Juan" Perron, and now...
