Effing yes.

"The End Is Near" just sidled over the 25K mark.  25,540, to be exact, at the conclusion of the fourteenth chapter.

Of course, that's counting Author's Note, in which I must admit to a tendency to prattle on more than a bit.

In any case, I am PLEASED. >D

Also, lulz.
Feeling: pleasedpleased

I imagine it could be bad if it read the comment back to them with all of the typos included. lol

When did you start writing it?

In another of those comics, the guy was like, "I once made it a project to try to write a YouTube comment so stupid no one would believe it. I failed." XD

Apparently I created the document August 19. It's been kind of on and off in spurts since then. XD

Ha, ha, ha that comic was great. :) Congrats on getting so far on The End Is Near! I can't wait to read it!

Now I just have to finish it so that you can! XD The problem is that I have no idea how much further it's going to go from here... :P

It's true, though -- when you've just got a fixed quantity of words, and it's this little piece all packaged and condensed, it seems like you can focus so much more on each individual word. I definitely feel like oneshots had a different quality to them than chapters of fics. Which is kind of too bad. XD

I kind of went the other way around -- my first fic was going to be chaptered, the second was a long oneshot, the third was chaptered, the fourth was chaptered... :P Then I started seeing drabbles and was like, "That sounds like a challenge!", and now it's just whatever there is in my head, I guess. XD

The longest thing I've got on FF.net is, by a considerable distance, my Marauders Era fic, which, at 55,000, looks puny compared to most people's efforts. :P But I stand by it and its typos and its disjointed lack-of-a-plotline and its strange lapses into crack-y humor, because... well, why not? XD

Erm, subject at hand.

It's interesting, but not too unexpected(?), that everything would change after some time off. And it's definitely true that different fandoms/universes/whatnot lend themselves to entirely different genres of ficcage...

I do the same thing, with posting order. XD I have a crapload of things saved in my documents, waiting patiently (or not so patiently, in some cases) because I don't want to bother Eltea to beta, or I've got other things that ought to go up first, or because I want to scar people with them, as is the case with an, as I believe you once utterly amazingly put it, dodgy L/Light fic that I'm saving until after I've got an audience who thinks I write lots of silly stuff. But that's just because I'm a sadist and want to traumatize children. XD

And haha, well, talking about fic and fic origins isn't something I get to do all that much, so I love it! 8D

*smacks own head* I just watched Pride and Prejudice, and as I noticed Bingley's amazingly red hair and Darcy's very turquoise jacket, I had a revelation and thought to myself something along the lines of, "OMG, Tierfal's icon!"

Ironically enough, I found the picture Googling "Jane Austen" and never bothered to figure out where exactly it was from... I really need to Jane Austen-alize myself much more efficiently; I loved "Northanger Abbey" but was inexplicably too lame to pick up any of the others. Something is wrong in my brain. XD

Well, P & P is the only Austen I've read, so you're not alone. I do recommend it, though. I usually, erm, don't like books written before the mid 20th century. It's not that I don't like period pieces, it's just that the writing styles have changed so much that everything just sounds weird/stilted in my head.

I know exactly what you mean. Same thing seems to happen with comic books, though that's one of the oddest analogies I've made in my life... XD
Marmmarmaladefever on October 1st, 2008 02:25 am (UTC)
That is an odd analogy, but I think I get it. ;)
