And you first reaction was to pick drivel as opposed to authors of non drivel. This is a you problem.

Please expand on your second point. Tell me how Douglas Adams, C.S Lewis or Tolkien are lacking.

Please provide examples. Opinions are not evidence.

Anecdote is as good as anecdote. Objective fact is where it is at. So far you don't understand characterization or the different between a plot point or a plot line so please stop presenting your opinion as fact or authority.


Oh wow now we're even getting grades?! On a gaming forum no less? I've seen many things (trust me -played WOW for years) but this is a first! Count me impressed!

Besides I have better things to do than wrote literary essays for you especially on something that should be self evident to a self proclaimed expert on literature.

Maybe you could write us - the unenlightened an essay on why Legolas is so infinitely better characterised than say Gale (and it's not even a fair competitions with only having Act1 available to go by).

And I agree this probably calls for a lockdown any time now.
