    Why does everyone assume Miles will kill Lexington?

    Sure, that speech usually means "someones gonna die," but it could be some elaborate plan involving suicide.

    Right?

    RIGHT!?!



    I just want Lloyd's boyfriend to stay alive, cause Lloyd himself is awesome.

    Has that been confirmed, btw? That Lloyd/Miles are a canon shipping?

    I believe coffee was the one who gave us the idea in a clear statement. I dunnos. (And does it count as "shipping" if it was an actual 'relationship'? The term itself confuses me. Boats+relationships=how these related?))

    I think TECHNICALLY it doesn't apply for canon relationships, but no-one cares.

    Also, it comes from relationship. The first example was Rocketshipping-James and Jessie from the pokemon cartoon.

    I never understood why everyone automatically assumed that Miles planned to kill Lexi either. What the heck would it accomplish, anyways? I could see why Miles would attempt some sort of Heroic Sacrifice, either by taking one final chance at killing/banishing Rust or by causing some distraction to allow Lexi to escape the country. I can't think of a single reason why Miles would want Lexi to die. The two of them are best friends, for heaven's sake!

    Lexi is a danger to the whole mission.
    He is more subject to his emotions then to the goal.

    Just how he screamed when they were eavesdropping.
    If the general wasnt present then they would both die.
    because Lexi cant keep his mouth shut.

    And thats why Lexi deserves to die.

    Obviously, it is because neither side is correct!

    Miles will kill Lexington, make it look like a suicide, than kill himself. Turn the whole thing into some Shakespeare-esque tragedy.

    Wait, what?. You guys made me think Miles was Rust. Miles killing Lexington? Little sense. Only thing is to blame everything Rust said on Lexington but who would that fool?. Nobody and very least of all the one it should fool to work.

    He's using the book to communicate with Lloyd (if books are a material component needed for a Sending like spell in this universe), his "this is something I shouldn't do" attitude would be because such attempt at communication would bear a chance of it being detected and Lloyd tracked. That's my view.

    Another update this weekend, guys. Also, my brother wants to do some sort of dramatic bad fanfiction reading thing. I suggested that he needed a microphone, a better webcam, and some sort of schitck. What do you think?

    Which bad fanfic is he planning on reading? If he's still up in the air about which one to do, I'd suggest ITS MY LIFE! by MarissaTheWriter. Sure, most of the characters are girls, but think of all the comedy that would involve! (Disclaimer: this suggestion may or may not have something to do with my current obsession with the Portal fandom. Second Disclaimer: I am in no way responsible for any very minor cases of serious brain damage you may sustain by reading the aforementioned fic.)

    Regardless of which fanfic he does, he should make sure to have a hilarious voice for each character's dialogue. Whether or not that voice is a side-splitting antithesis of the character or a ridiculous exaggeration of the character's central stereotype is up to him.

    I wouldn't think you'd need a webcam for it, though - most of the horrible fanfic dramatic readings I've seen only involved the audio of the reading set over a video showing the text being read. Then again, I haven't gone out of my way to listen to a lot of these readings. Anyone else have any suggestions?

    Agreeing with no webcam.

    As to what fic, I can't help but recommend FimFiction's Current Fics tab. Likelyhood of being a terrible piece of fiction is well over 70%. I can point you in the direction of a few, if you need.

    As to Shtick, agreeing with Alagesian (Derp the name!). Humor is the biggest thing. Figure out what's funny about a piece and exaggerate. Point out the tiniest, stupidest flaws. If it works for muckrakers and talk show hosts for humor, it's probably ok when you're degrading something that actually is terrible.

    The level of terrible writing everywhere is just too gorram high. It's just that a high percentage of the "professional" writing we read on a regular basis goes through an elaborate screening process that filters out most of the Mary-Sues and horrible writing. (Most. Not all. *coughTwilightcough*) Fanfiction, on the other hand, has no screening process. We're exposed to every single piece of crud a writer has the urge to "publish".

    Depending on the fic, either outrageous voices, or playing it completely serious and straight. More than a good mic, he needs a pop filter. The mic that comes with rockband is okay, if you happen to have the old ps2 game karoake revolution, that is actually one of the best mics under 100 bucks for low level voice recording, its a 50 dollar logitech mic with the ka rev logo slapped on it.

    I recently discovered https://twitter.com/fanfiction_txt which can be a source of horrible horrible fan fic.

    But, in order to follow the Third Law, you would have to acknowledge it's existence. But if you acknowledge it's existence, then you have to pretend it doesn't exist. Then again, if you pretend it doesn't exist, you now longer have any prompting to follow it, thereby meaning that you should no longer pretend that it doesn't exist. But, that means acknowledging its existence, and now we're back at square one.

    I'll just store that idea under my list of logical paradoxes, giving it a slightly more elegant structure. (The first rule of thermodynamics is to break the first rule of thermodynamics.) I'm stockpiling paradoxes for the event of a robot uprising.

    Also, I've just lost the game.
