What's wrong with a little destruction?

It's "would have", not "would of"; when you think it's "then", it's most probably "than".

Does "hott" somehow make it hotter?

Do we *know* for sure that Brian's middle name is Aidan? Because if that's so, I somehow missed that episode.

Oh, and I *suspect* Brian at least likes Michael. I wouldn't be someone's best friend if I hated the sight of them.

Okay? *smiles maniacally*

AIDAN = NOOOOO!!!!!!1111!!!! *STABS SELF* BRAIN IS NOT A FAKE DED BABIE!!!!!!!

ack, it seems fakers on the internet are fond of naming their nonexistent babies Aidan/Aiden, so now I can't stand that name at all.

- if you MUST use the word "blond" [*STABS SELF REPEATEDLY*], at least spell it without the e.

But, um, don't use it. :| Just DON'T, ´k?

SECONDED! Whole-heartedly.

Leave off the unnecessary and annoying descriptors, people. We KNOW he's blond. Swear.

Ugh... I've been guilty of this one. But that was long ago and I stopped. I swear. O_O

Haahaa, I agree withe youre assessment of the use of the worde "blonde" in fiction, but I'm blonde and I don't understande what's wrong withe the 'e'? I LIKE my 'e'. Please explaine, because I am one of those ignorante shagging British.

I've never been sure how it goes, but I think the "e" is used for females and when used as an adjective (blonde hair). But I could be wrong.

Hmm, it seems it is much more relaxed here. Gender is not really taken into account. It's more normal to just leave it to personal preference even when used as a noun. :)

OMG, YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE MISSING "BRIAN AIDAN KINNEY" EPISODE?? HEY, I'LL UPLOAD IT FOR YOU ASAP, BUT FIRST TAKE A HIT OFF THIS CRACK PIPE...


*pets*

OMG SHARE YOUR CRACK. I WANT TO imagine SEE IT TOO!

OMG I'LL LOVE U 4EVA & EVA IF U DOO.


*purrs*

Sometimes I'm convinced that most of the writers on bjfic.net failed remedial grammar.

The Aiden thing drives me crazy. I know in 115, Ted made a comment about Brian's middle initial being "A", and a lot of people latched on to that as if it was true, and somehow decided that "A" stood for "Aiden", but it's certainly not something they ever said in the show. I've always assumed that isn't even really Brian's middle initial -- that Ted was just saying he thought Brian's middle name was "Asshole".

And OMG, I can't even tell you how much I hate "Evil Mikey" and/or "Brian can't stand Mikey" fic.

I could have sworn that it wasn't just Ted's comment that said it, but that we saw "Brian A. Kinney" in print somewhere along the way in the series...on an ID, or an award certificate, or the wedding invitation or something...hmm. I wish I could remember where. Or maybe my memory is playing tricks on me.

And OMG, I can't even tell you how much I hate "Evil Mikey" and/or "Brian can't stand Mikey" fic.

Do those people who write that stuff even watch the same show? That's almost as bad as B/M. O_O

YAY I love you.

And might I just add my two cents?

There's a tremendous difference between to, too and two. And while we're at it, then and than are NOT interchangable!

Sincerely! I am SO tripped up when I see "then" and "than" used wrong. It's not that hard to remember, and they're so different.

There's a tremendous difference between to, too and two.

Hahaha, I've seen that one two! ;)

And Brain instead of Brian. Ugh.


Yeah "hott" is annoying. But then I even find "cum" a bit forced and distracting. Pardon the pun. ;) But at least it's a somewhat accepted variant.

However, don't forget that when something bad happens it's NOT "He didn't think he could have felt worst"...it's "worse" goddamn it! Argh! (One of my major pet peeves with some of these authors). Another biggie is the their/there/they're debacle.

I've learned to excuse those for whom English is a remote second language, though I do wish they'd enlist native English speaking betas. And it's kind of funny to read the Britishisms in some people's stuff -- hearing B/J talk about snogging in the lift etc. -- even if it's out of place in Pittsburgh. But I truly can't deal with the abysmal grammar some of these folks pour out. Even more inexcusable are the ones who can't even be bothered with a spell-checker. I mean homonyms are one thing but please...

In all fairness though, not everything at bjfic.net is badfic! After all plum, judi, veda, bibw, and several other very good writers post their stuff there too -- and frankly I'm glad because it's nice to have stuff archived all in one place that is easily searchable, and where a saved story chapter is 20-30 kb instead of the 80+kb that a saved LJ page takes up. And believe me, when you have as much QAF stuff saved as I do, those extra kb start to really matter! You want almost exclusively badfic? try ATP. *shudder*

That's true. But you have to sift through a bunch of crap to get to the good stuff, lol.


The Aidan thing is like when people say he's Irish.. los mitos de este fandom son divertidisimos lol.. :)

I still think his middle name is Ashley cuz don't Lip say that Brain is Scarlett in Gone with the Wind? so Ashley wood make more sents, rite?

And who cares about grammer? That is not the point! U people are mean. This is all just for fun. U people all think your so much better then all of us and you arent, freal.

Well, I didn't mean it like a bad thing and I'm the fisrt one who likes all kind of fics.. I like all the writers can imagine so I think you ar ewrong at least with me.. you don't know my opinion and I din't comment on the other points so I didn't say I agree or anything.. I meant to say is curious but never bad.. that's all :)

BWAHAHAHA!!!!
I LUV YUR ICON THE BESTEST EVR!!!! IF I CUD BORROW IT ILL B YUR BFF!!!

Yes U will friend me cuz frieds R LUV!!!

See, I got these icons cuz Starguts (starbellys) made 'em for me. So I had to rite a fic for her to fix post S5 which SUX MORE THAN JAYEN THAT BICH!!!

OOOO!!! R u riting that fic where both
Bri and Sunshine are like pregnet and
they bump ther bellys together like thir
babys are KISSING???

SquEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

"Ashley" hadnt ocured too me. D'uh. Your briliant.

Had GONE, had GONE!!!! NOT "had went."

I do advisory work for an English Dept. and actually had to correct an undergraduate English Major who came into my office the other day. Sweetie, you're majoring in English. You really need to get this right.

Okay, I wasn't that mean. But she really was that embarrassed.

Sweetie, you're majoring in English. You really need to get this right.

Hee!

The thing is, I'm not even a native English speaker and I notice that stuff, while I'm sure most of those writers over at bjfic.net speak and write English every day.

LOL! Good list! Gah... I'm not even getting into characterization and all that shit. Had we but world enough, and time. ;)

Have you been visiting Bjfic again?

WORD. A LOT.

Especially on the unfounded Brian-hating-Michael.

And the "then" vs "than". Argh. I've at least informed a few people, but who knows if they listened.

I've at least informed a few people, but who knows if they listened.

Most of them don't even care. What's even scarier is all the fans they have... *mind boggles*

Can someone -- anyone? -- show me where Brian calls Justin
"Just" or "Sweetie" or "Snoogie" or anything other than
"Sunshine" (ironically) or "Twat" (affectionately) or
"Taylor" (standoffishly)? Or where Justin calls Brian "Bri"
or "Honey" (except when he's mocking him) or any of the twee
and cringe-making endearments I keep seeing in fics? WTF?

I stop reading immediately when I see this. Period.

Well, Lindsay and Ted do call Brian "Bri" several times...can't recall if Justin ever did...

Justin? Never. Not even as a joke.

Notice how Brian always winced when Ted called
him that. I think Brian detests "pet" names.

"Sunshine" I can deal with (in small doses) because he did seem to use it as a pet name once or twice (217 & 503, if I'm not mistaken?). But as I said, only sparingly. I was reading this story the other day and the author used it 90% of the time. Ugh.

oh I can't miss this discussion! *evil laughter* I just hate it when a person writes about ten fic at the same time and all the stories are such crap that you don't even have strength to wonder why the hell this person bothers to write at all and where all the people who leave ecstatic comments get so much weed.

Yes! It seems that, the prolificness of the authors is inversely proportional to the quality of their stories.

and where all the people who leave ecstatic comments get so much weed.

LOL
