I love when something becomes really pervasive because it gets
referenced a lot in one person's stories.

I just got that "Frank" is part of this too... dang it Jaelle. XD

Jynx was a formative queer crush for Alice Ashdown.

I was thinking about how the change in different sytles of comedy
lately has been part of the reason we've shifted away from characters
whose main purpose is to make people suffer, like Master Blaster or
Self Righteous Preacher. Thought SRP is a really fascinating
character. There's very few characters with more of a gap between the
best of what he's capable of (Limp Asparagus Lad #55) and the worst
(LNH Triple Play #5). But definitely a fraught character right now.

Also old LNH holds up on the whole a lot better than other media of
the time--and now--but there's some moments that are really... yeah.

If I had to name my single favorite LNH series, which is really
difficult, it'd be Misfits. The top five would be like, Misfits,
Dvandom Force, Miss Translation, Saviors of the Net and Writers Block
Person. Don't ask me about the order.

You are definitely more of a Brittany, and I am more of a Paytan.

But we're both Savannah.

I have no idea how we're going to end WikiLull (I have an idea but I
have no idea how to get there), but this kind of thing will be
integral to the end of it.

Yes do it.

So if there's a sequel would it reference Marguerite Bennett's Angela?
