Well, is he lying? Because, to me, that seems way out of line for Elites to make necklaces like that.

Otherwise, I like the concept. Very Happy

This is really really cool. It reminds me of the "Believe" ad campaign except, you know, not lame. It's the kind of funny that is really the polar opposite of funny, but you laugh anyway. I had thought about dialogue only stories before, but I've never been able to get it to work at all. Um. Brain not working now, so can't think of much to say. Hurghlblblg.

When I first glanced at this fic, I didn't know what I was looking at. Having read it, I still have no idea. But I liked it.

Kabu's right. It's funny in a way I can't quite pin down. Some cool concepts in here too, like the idea that plasma burns eventually metastisize. The Elite's aversion to asses, apart from being hilarious, was justified with a thoughtfulness unusual to such a bizarre idea, which somehow only made it more humorous.

Any collaboration with kr on this one, Trooper? Just curious.

Not much more to say, other than that I'm intrigued. Is he full of shit, or has he gone crazy - or is he actually telling the truth? Or is it a little bit of all three? I'm not sure yet. Looking forward to seeing where it goes.

So I opened this up, started reading through, and had decided I was gonna leave you some negative comment about how I found your style unpalatable, how the lack of formatting got frustrating, how I would have worded and/or typed certain things differently...

Until:

Elites don't like naked asses.

And then the story was just...made. Yeah, that whole part was really funny but it somehow solidified the whole piece. From then on, your objective seemed a little clearer and I suddenly found it an interesting concept that I wanted to read more of. I have no idea how, but there was just a certain turn at that point and all those negatives I thought of suddenly worked.

It was weird. Damn weird. So for the fact that you managed to weird me out, I'm giving the thumbs-up. Curious to see where you take this...
