I don't really want you to eff off. :) I'm just making a new post to separate the comment sections.
Speaking of which! I know 95% of you are the most wonderful commenters the Internet has ever seen (and I love you for it), but those of you who are name-calling and being rude: EFF OFF! Your opinions will be heard by more ears if you don't share them rudely, believe me.
And on a final note: keep mind that I'm trying to be true to my characters, and thus not all of the opinions shared by them are held by yours truly. While I too loathe people who won't take "no" for an answer, I don't think I could ever smack someone in the head for it!
Speaking of podcasts, you can listen to the podcast R. Stevens and I put on every week, called Coffee and Cider! We just chat for half an hour about... anything. Mostly being work-obsessed idiots and human beings who like beverages and have cats.
