Astounding.

So, yeah, been reading the Tale of MsScribe like everyone else, and it's astounding. The need for attention and to poke your finger in the hornet's nest and get off on hurting scores (maybe hundreds) of people. Dude, that is some free time this chick had. I have nothing to offer as far as insight into this debacle, but will say that two things stood out:

"Virtual Munchausen Syndrome" is the best name ever. VMS. I plan on using that.

and THIS LINK had me crying with laughter. (Here's what this funny person is responding to.) Mostly as a release to the absolute CRAZY of someone making their two sockpuppet LJs fight each other over the validity of a woman's CANCER CLAIMS and the internet's rush of support to her. Um, I'd like to think I'm not the only one that was skeptical when I read "I called the Mayo clinic and checked..." Really? Oh my god, REALLY? Come on. "Called the Mayo Clinic." And the person was anon. Riiiiiiiiight. (Makes the Buffyverse Mean Girl vs. Nice Girl irritant seem like a blister from new shoes in comparison, huh? Such ridiculousness.)

I have now changed my journal name to "Magic Sparkly Tooliness Hotline" and I am the new Head Unicorn. Tears, man. So damn funny!

In other news, trying to get the family packed and ready to go for our Griswald Style Family Vacation, which sadly does not involve jumping the Grand Canyon in the Family Truckster, but I have my fingers crossed on Wally World being closed so Mr. S can go off on a rage. Connor CD mix almost done, will post when it is, off to feed the fam and NOT SIT AND READ HP WANK, omg!!

[ETA:] Crap - forgot to mention that I am SURPRISED no one has made any Scoobie jokes in the vein of "Uncle Phillip!" "Aw, shucks. Would have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't of been for you pesky kids." And how AWESOME would it be to find that MsScribe is actually Prettybird? NO! JKR! HAHAHAHA. (I've heard the "Charlottelenox" = "msscribe" hahas. Heh. Not enough of a twist, IMO. JKR would have a certain gleeful/schadenfreude element to it that would be an absolute SHOCK. Bwah!)

NICE. I'm making a note. Also:
*stir Kool-ade with bare arm
*Hamburger Helper: needs meat? I think not
*this is crazy, this is crazy...

UCB makes me happy in my brain parts. Put "unicorn" in anything and you've got potential for hilarity. It's like the word "weasel." Or "penis."

Sad face? Oh. I know. *hugs*

Your brain is a fun and twisted place with many pitfalls and funny mirrors.

I wanna live there. I, too, thought of the charlottelennox=msscribe twist, but NEVER in a million years did I even once CONSIDER that it would be funny if it were JKR....*shakes head* and that's why I'll never be stoney, for Stoney is the one and only....LMAO.

Well... I didn't get self-promoted to Head Unicorn for NOTHING! Except I did.

Wait...

I haven't actually gotten in the specifics of this whole HP uproar, but I am disappointed.

This is a fandom about a bunch of 11 year olds who ride magic brooms. Surely the BNFs of BtVS/Ats can invent better wank than this. Surely we can put our heads together and publish pathetic stories about having only a week to live, so please love me. Come on people, where is your pride?

See, I've been saying this since DAY ONE. Or for a bit... :D All of the best wank comes from the HP fandom, which cracks me up when folks here go on about how meeeeeeeeen Jossverse is. DUDE. They mock people with CANCER. That's.... that's pretty harsh.

Altogether, I'm disappointed that we haven't stepped up to show them how crazy we are. OR AM I?

(I'll say this about the MsScribe tale: it's absolutely fascinating how far people go to get attention. Her story is even worse than those who fake suicide for attention. It's just so... odd. Human behavior is FASCINATING.)

Listen, when JKR gets hundreds of death threats because H/H is a no-go (even though it's damn obvious from the books), you know your fandom should be carted off in those nice white coats.

Bangels and Spuffies may threaten each other but I don't think we've ever tried to off Joss.

Not something I ever though I'd hear outta Stoney's mouth. Next you're gonna say crucifying Jesus was mean, and we all know it was in good fun! (Or else he faked his death and then deleted his journal. But then came back to say it was a fake and got wanked and so left fandom forever. Or else he was just a sockpuppet for Saul Saul killed off to make his Jesus!fic more popular. And then Saul changed his fandom name to Paul.)

Sorry, I love that icon.

well, apparently I mocked sueworld for being sick (which, um, no, I didn't, but fine if she wants to take that way. HI SUEWORLD!) so does that mean I'm msscribeable?

In all honestly, I'm a little glad all the serious, terrifying wank was the work of just one person. Not that it matters anymore, cause patterns are set, but still. It's nice not to think an entire fandom needs horse tranquilizers.

That wank... I can't read. I can't see the funny in it. I'm glad they opened it up for this, though, because that kind of vitriol needs a bitch to blame it on.

Wait, where you said you hoped she didn't devolve into not addressing the topic at hand by trotting out her illness? Which, whatever - people are ill, but WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH YOUR ARGUMENT?

I mean, it's not like Stephen Hawkins got knighted and listed as the author of various proofs/research/etc. because he typed out "I have a degenerative disease."

And why on EARTH is she reading this LJ? Oh, you don't think those girls go LOOKING FOR TROUBLE? *turns to look at them*

Now, I didn't find the wank funny at ALL. It's horrifyingly creepy. I found a person's response to the insane anon troll hilarious. BIIIG difference.

So, what else has been going on while I took a break? =/

Oh, no -- I know! Totally. I just ... I wish I could stand it long enough because I know there *are* some funny and reassuringly disgusted responses. I just ... can't look at it.

And yes. When I told Sueworld that I found her using her illness in a discussion as a way to get away from topics she couldn't argue against anymore (meaning, I'd backed her into a corner) disgusting, she accused me of being selfish and cruel because someone's illness got in the way of, and I quote "venting my spleen".

I don't know if she's reading. I don't really care. I'm perfectly happy calling her cowardly and passive-agressive for that little gem.

Hahahaha! My favorite in that original link (the anony-comment being parodied) was when ashemote at JF said Yeah, and still looks suspicious to me. If it were the truth, the letters would blink and move and sparkle, too.

Heeeeeeeeee!! That made me giggle, too. I like unicorns in a refute, I'ma girl of specific needs.

It's MIND BLOWING. I've called and talked to Mr. S about it, and he's fascinated, and he doesn't CARE about fandom of any sort!

Heh, I had to doll out chapters to myself, but it is FASCINATING. Even Mr. S thinks it's interesting. Imagine an A&E Biograpy of the mind of like, Susan Whatshername that drowned her kids. (Oh, ack.) Just... the lies she created to cover her sick ass.

Okay, no one died in the making of this wank (*g*), but the level of deception is astounding.

Oh, man, the research is the BEST! I'm a big fan of providing links, etc. (And seriously? You'd never heard about Cassie Clare and the laptop? Dude, she has her own WIKI page.)

We (general we) butt heads in BtVS fandom, but nothing to the extent of wishing a mother with cancer ill will. *feels sick* Good lord.

Wasn't it just amazing? And no, seriously, Liz_Marks said the only thing she could possibly compare it to was something that happened in Blake 7 that involved the actors stirring up shit.

So, um. No. HP's been the wankiest thing since the term 'wank' got coopted and that 89% of it is due to one insanely malicious and possibly mentally NUTSO woman? Is one of those yay, not everyone's crazy, and omg, she's scary. Dichotomies, they're what's for dinner.

I had been trying to resist the shiny msscribe fairytale of wank, but I finally got sucked in. That thing is more epic than any cracktastic neverending WIP fic. My eyeballs are sprained from trying to skim it, and I probably didn't even get a quarter of the way through.

It is like the most intelligent crack!fic ever.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
