  • That guy arrives in a cloud of indignation, starts reeing about how the cultural Marx Brothers or whatever are supposedly Godwinning everyone, and resorts to insults early in the game...but you're the one who's supposedly unprepared for anything resembling a rational debate.  Right.

    • My personal favorite part was how he admitted he knew absolutely nothing about Spencer & his ties to the alt right movement, but continued trying to lecture me about "The Truth!" undeterred.

      I certainly could have kept going, but I didn't want that thread to blow up like the last one I mentioned fascism in. So if he wants me to respond, it has to be on-topic, or at least related to what I said.

      Though, between you & I, I am damn tired of seeing right-wingers whine about respect & understanding, but only when it comes to them. Never mind that I have been listening to their complaints, & how many times do I have to debunk the same falsehoods, listen to the same conspiracy theories, & hear the same insults before I'm allowed to conclude that there really isn't anything rational there? Except maybe the odd complaint about coal jobs or career politicians that right wing extremist groups either can't or don't want to solve anyway.

  • The exact quote was "I know nothing about you, but based solely on your posts I have to assume you're a baby eating rapist."  He then went on to accuse me of thinking everyone who disagreed with me was an "antifan" (because let's conveniently forget about him calling me a "baby-eating rapist" for disagreeing with him, ignore the volume of incoherent Katara hate that he's spewed, and pretend that I go around calling, say, Makorra holdouts "antifans" unless they've actively earned it).

    And earlier in the same post, he'd accused me of "self admittedly [having] no idea what [I was] criticizing."  Note that what I'd said was that his Tumblr post was inane, unfunny, and definitely not canon; and that his blog as a whole did not reflect well on his character.  Which had nothing to do with whether or not the gripe that prompted him to excrete that thing (as some sort of half-baked reductio ad absurdum protest against mod rulings) had any validity (and it still didn't).

    • Now that you've reminded me that comment history can be checked, things make a lot more sense. I hadn't realized just how much had been leading up to this. The reaction just shocked me because frankly the post didn't seem altogether more wrong or offensive than a lot of things I've seen posted to the board, which are generally ignored.

  • How comes it seems like you and Hasdi are constantly at each other's throats?

  • Hey Neo,

    As I look back at my comments where I fight for Maiko (way back) I really do notice at sometimes I was just looking at my opinions rather than facts. In fact what annoys me the most is that back when I was writing these comments I was just 'shipping' them, and I mean I know I had explanations sometimes, but that was back form Ember Island days. I mean I was basing my opinion on the freaking series. Mai and Zuko are really different from then. I still think it's possible for Mai to be Izumi's mom, because maybe when they are older they can work stuff out and understand why they even liked eacho ther in the first place. But that aside they just have different priorities now and I am wondering if I can delete my previous comments about the Mai & Zuko rebound, I was pretty illinformed and caught in a circle to be honest. 

    I mean of course, I've read all the continutations for the past few months, as you'd would have noticed in my comments, and actually gotten deeper into them, understood the authors etc. I just wanted to let you know that your comments in that discussion, were very informative and well thought out, and like to know more about your opinions about the series and the writers, not to mention, who will end up being Izumi's mother.

    • No biggie, I'm glad you found those posts informative. I don't know if you can delete comments, but I don't really see why it would be necessary either.

      Honestly, at this point, the only possibilities I can see for Izumi's mother are Mai, Suki, someone else from earlier inexplicably coming back, or some random character not mentioned yet.

      I'm not sure I really see a good solution there. Suki is out of left field, Mai & Zuko haven't really worked, & anything else wouldn't be much better than Suki.

      "What are your opinions on the series & writers?" is a pretty open ended question. I generally like them. I have a preference for Legend of Korra. The comics have been sort of hit-&-miss. I don't really buy some of the claims people make about the writing like "bad at romance." Book 2 of LoK isn't as bad as most people think, but it's still pretty bad. My favorite villain is Amon, but I'm not fond of the Noatak reveal, followed by Azula. I don't like Kuvira. I don't see why a lot of people think Zaheer is the best. He's not bad, but he's not really the smartest, or the strongest, or the most sympathetic, or anything like that. I think a lot of people really overestimate Aang, practically thinking he can do anything or beat anyone, even though the original show portrayed him as pretty green. At the same time, I think people greatly underrate Korra, who's shown to be a pretty well-rounded fighter & becomes much smarter & more level-headed as the series goes on.

  • Hey there Neo! I found your edit to my post amazing! I have to say that you totally annihilated me there, it seems like you really know all the details about bending and the elements. I must admit that I am not a pro avatar fan and I merely wanted to express my opinion. I really enjoyed reading your edit and I would like to ask you who would win, Korra or Tofu. I know that they already had a fight, but at that time, if I remember correctly, korra had poison in her, but what would have happened if Korra was in prime form?

    • Well, Korra has the Avatar State, so that's not exactly a fair fight.

      I wouldn't describe myself as a "pro fan" either, it's been a while since I watched the original series. But I pored over a lot of different scenes for an RP, & continue to do so for a story loosely based on the RP. It was actually quite difficult to find anything with a firebender vs. an earthbender, so I lucked out that Zuko's fight happened to include a rock shield.

      I'm just glad you enjoyed reading the post.

  • Hi Neo! I managed to finish reading Republic City Renaissance and I'll be starting to write the review soon. Sorry about the delay. You can expect the review by the end of this week since I may have to do a recap of some of the earlier chapters that I read a while ago. Thanks for being patient. :)

  • Hi there Neo. Just thought I would leave an update regarding your fanon and the review I'm doing. I am sorry that it has taken me so long to respond/finish reviewing it, but I do certainly intend on finishing all my reviews and just improving my wiki activity in general haha :L I'm actually pretty far through your story, I think I only have two more chapters to go, but I'm heading into an even busier time of uni soon with finals so I'm not sure when I can finish it. I do have a week off next week which I will try to use, though I do prefer to work on quality rather than simply churn out reviews quickly. Anyway, sorry about the delay, and I'll let you know if anything changes. 

    Cheers :)

    • Thanks for the update.

      I've had sort of a similar problem. I haven't put out a chapter since maybe the beginning of September, & it doesn't look like that's going to change any time soon. First there was exams, then I had to increase studying time because I wasn't fond of the score I got on my biology exam, now more exams are coming up. There's also lab work, & a group project coming up.

      I have gotten a bit of time to work on stuff here & there, but neither the next few chapters of Book 0 nor the prequel I'm working on are anywhere close to being ready to go up. Like you said, I'd rather take the time to work on them, rather than just quickly post something half-assed.

      Good luck with finals.
