    "Bated" is one of those bits of fourteenth-century dialect that modern English speakers are only familiar with because of a single phrase Shakespeare used one time.

    unrelated to the current convo, every time I see someone say that a ship can't/shouldn't be shipped because "he hates her!" I'm like
    dude that's the fuckin point
    I GUARANTEE that that's why they are being shipped
    I'm sorry but ships don't have to be healthy, they just have to be interesting

    Has the concept of FoeYay been lost from the Fandom Conscious?

    Oh dear... I found this comparison of a particularly obnoxious Lord Potter fic with the same writer's earlier fic which served as its rough draft, and... well.
    Bolding for emphasis mine.

    Let they who have no embarrassing early drafts cast the first stone.

    Gods bring back the Homestucks in full force so that they can chant the praises of foeyay to the heavens so hard that none can deny it.

    True. I'm still boggling somewhat. I think this guy might be the same guy who leaves reviews on the Harry Potter section of hentai-foundry and persistently calls Harry Hadrian. That was confusing to observe.

    This character already has multiple canonical nicknames, why are you making up a different, infinitely worse one.

    The character is Phoenix Wright, canonically nicknamed "Nick" and "Feenie."

    This person (a liveblogger, technically, not a ficcer; I just put it here because it's a very fanfic-adjacent sort of gripe) has been calling him "Phwee" and has now started calling him "Poo." I'm dying, Squirtle.

    They're. They're having fun. I don't want to harsh their buzz. But I'm dying, Squirtle.

    (And yes, this is the same person who prompted this.)

    Hokay, I admit, I am mostly in this fic for the OT3, but author, when you open the first chapter with An Spoopy Mystery, I, the reader, then expect some follow up on that Spoopy Mystery at some damn point in the story.

    Instead, it’s chapter 10 of 14 of wall-to-wall domestic fluff, and Mr Chekhov is spinning in his grave.
