Angst and hokey bits! GRIGNR!

Bwah. I should not bwah over this cheesy story, but I do so bwah. This is too much fun.

I have written most of it now in shorthand or in full, and it's wound up so full of every damn fantasy adventure cliché that I feel like I should go back and rewrite it with "emerald orbs" and "flashing foot of blinding steel" thrown in there somewhere. And possibly a tediously-honed rat's pelvis.***

The scary thing is how much it resembles a typical Final Fantasy plot. ALL the bad, and ALL the good, hopefully! Why do we love these games... or classic Trek... or half the science fiction/fantasy out there when it's often so very predictable?

*** If you don't understand the references, read and weep. Eye of Argon, the worst fantasy fiction ever written. There can be only one.

*grins* Glad you're enjoying yourself. It's fun sometimes to write something that doesn't have to be a masterpiece. For what it's worth, the story's just as fun to read.

I'll give you cookies if a Generic Lecherous Guard says, "I like a girl with spirit," and then is proven wrong when Lulu smites him. Cliche? Maybe, but that doesn't make it stop being fun!

However, if I see 'orbs', I will smite you. Some things are just wrong.

Oops, I don't think I used that line for that scene...

Oh, by all means, bwah away. ;) Sometimes it's great to just let your hair down and have some cheesy fun. And this story is just that -- fun. I'm enjoying it immensely. :)
