You seem to give me the impression that you feel like I'm pointing you out
or something.. <MBG> But don't worry, I've written two stories that would
get killed by my "it doesn't thingy" I still have to release the stories,
but I just wondered how I would do at writing a Sonic only story.. That's all.

And "Bloodlines", and "On my mothers grave" and most of the stories are
brilliant, the depression adds to the story. The whole Tolouse series I find
exceptionally good. My "it doesn't" thingie doesn't discredit the stories
that do include fan-fiction created characters, nor does it discredit
stories that have ninjas in, or are depressing. It simply says that this
story, won't have any of that in:
>>but unlike some stories I've
>>seen, it doesn't:


And for the info, I enjoyed ninety-five percent of the stories, Yes, I had
to meditate after that one night I read about five stories where freedom
fighters are getting thrown away like disposable diapers, but I still
enjoyed the stories. There were only a few, that I naturally, won't mention,
that I didn't enjoy. Generally I found this to be because the stories were
huge spelling and grammar mistakes on such a level no mere human could make
head or "Tails" of it.

Okay, so don't anyone flame me now, I didn't say YOUR story sucked, just
some stories. (5%)

Let me guess now, someone is going to come to me and say: "Hey Si, none of
the stories suck, so therefore you are saying that five percent of MY story
