... This is really random and kinda late, but I just had to comment on that name. XD I think it's funny. Lol. Excluding the negative connotation it has, I like the idea behind it. Very creative~ =3

Hmm~ and here I thought I was (partly) in charge of drawing that story? Did I miss an e-mail or something? Or did I just oversleep my deadline? Well whatever, Mello-san wherever you are right now please answer TT^TT(joke XD)

''Yuri is the allmighty power which makes any wonder possible!''

Follow your Dreams and Love will await you on the way.

Lol. When I asked about it, you never replied, so I thought you were just indirectly stating you didn't want to help draw it. XD But, yeah, if you want to help out in drawing it, that's good. =3 We can work together~

Okay Natus, I shall await the refinements.

Thank you Railgun (I think?) and Caelion.

I hope to do it with your team again as well. May you be triumphant next time to show me what I can learn.

... By that, did you possibly mean that you sent Natus your story? :/ Please tell me my English has gone sour in the span of three seconds or that I'm misinterpreting it. -.-"

God, I'm so confused now. >.>

No, I followed the rules so the only people who have it now are the judges and I. I meant that if further proofreading is needed I will send it to Natus and listen to the feedback.

Oh, I see~ Well, if you want to send it to Natus for proofreading, I suppose that's alright. Just know that if Natus is the one who's proofreading the story in its current format, he/she (I don't know Natus' gender. Sorry. ^^") will also have the responsibility of proofreading the final graphic piece. :/ Just so we can keep the number of people who have read the story to a minimum. XP

... ... On a side note, have I mentioned how great of a participant you are? XD You actually read the rules. I'd have been either too lazy to or just totally skim through it. ^^" (And yes, in case you're wondering, I'm the one who wrote the rules down. (with proofreading from Nanoha~ ;3) Lol.)

We'll have to wait for his/her response then.

EDIT: I just realised that my understanding on this part was screwed so the second part of this post has been removed.

We're starting work on the doujin soon, but we need a proofreader. If you proofread the story, you will have to proofread the doujin as well. Lastly, try to be online (check your email) at least thrice a week unless you're going on vacation. For anyone who wants to volunteer, thank you in advance.

I can do that, if you want. So proofreading both the story and (eventually) the doujin?
Should I start with the story now?

Sure, and yes.
Actually, I have worked on it since the submission. It's now version 2.1 so I'll need your email to attach it (this site does not have attachment options for PMs). You can even send me a blank PM.

I can offer a 2nd opinion on the edits if you'd like.

After talking to Kail Mello and Crazyla, Crazyla left the decision to Mello who left it to me OTL. Brooding too much into what they said, I have decided to reject your kind offer.

Please do not take this as an offense to your level of writing D:

Lol, I think the expression for this is "to pass the buck". XD

:/ ... In my defense~... I didn't know there was a chain there... Lol. But, yes, I do believe that expression is quite accurate. XP

The pudge is everyone talking about? My DP is the exact expression I have right now as I read this (pocky included). I don't give a flying potato about whether or not you guys accept my help. All I said was I'd offer a second opinion on edits if needed, I don't sound like much but I am a dual major in both Japanese and English. Just thought I'd offer what I can to the group, cause last time I checked I was still apart of it.

Easy there. The point here wasn't about whatever you're a great proofreader or not, indeed, additional help is usually more than welcome. The reason Mello decided to decline your offer is because she wants to keep the story content as secret as possible while they work on drawing the doujin, and well, unlike you I had already read it as a judge for the contest.

Once again your misinterpreting what I said. There wasn't anything I said that would require a "easy there". My point was Darkhalo felt bad for declining my offer and all I said was "it's cool dude, my feelings aren't hurt or anything of the sort". Please stop taking what I say out of context, cause this isn't the first time someone in this group has done that. =x

... Um... Okay, what the heck just happened? o.o Gah, I hate misunderstandings. OTL Clarifications: I agreed that passing the buck was a proper way of describing how Crazyla gave the decision to me, and I gave it to Halo. I didn't decide anything in the second opinion thing since I was iffy about it. :/ Reason being is what Crazyla stated. I was for it since a second opinion would also be nice. Since it was Halo's story that was being proof read as a whole, I figured it was alright to let Halo decide. *sighs* I guess my indecisiveness has caused this dispute. :/

Sorry... TT^TT *bows* Halo didn't mean to word it the way you interpreted it. It was, from my point of reading, a way to avoid this kind of scenario. Kind of funny how it led to it, anyways. ^^" Ha...

That said, may I comment that I never thought that you 'don't sound like much'. XD Lol. Just writing it makes me giggle at the irony. I actually think very highly of you based off the fics from both the Polaris Project and TEAM GEMINI. Even without that credential, I would still expect great things from you just cause you were crazy enough to join the new community with so many objectives. X3 *thumbs up* Truthfully, I commend you for participating so much. ^^ It makes things easier for me and your opinions have always been valued. Your big cheese said to watch out for that since you tend to jump everywhere, but I think it's pretty handy. *nods*

... Actually, I guess I also owe you a "Thank you" since it was your opinions I based the grading rubric for the contest off on, and your comment on Youtube that I'm currently considering as the next event for the community. *bows* Thank you very much! ^^

And... o.o Wow... I ranted a lot. :/ If you read this far, I hope I didn't bore you or anything with the long explanation and stuff. ~.~ Hopefully, this long post has cleared the misunderstandings up.

I don't mean to attack your way of speaking/typing, but maybe it's because you had 'flying potato'; the usual expression I hear is 'flying *vulgar word*'. =X
I agree with Mello that you're an extremely competent writer given that you're a part of two groups that publish epic fanfics. That was the reason why I didn't want to make it look like your level of writing was not sufficient (although it doesn't matter for a proofreader). :)

If you really have no hard feelings, let's leave it at that or just reply one more time. :D

Hm~ I actually kind of like Railgun's expression. It made me laugh and it's more appropriate to use that than something explicit as most people do. X3 It's cute, in a way. ^^

Oh dear god you guys are making this more complicated than it really is. I'm super happy you guys care about my feelings this much, but seriously I took no offense what so ever in having my help denied. I took mild offense that everyone was jumping to conclusions about me being angry. We're all part of this group so it's only natural I offer my abilities even if I don't get chosen. The fact we're still discussing this despite all of my efforts to say "WE BE CHILL YO!" is making me squirm in biri-biri anger.

Once again: We're good yo.

As for my strange fixation with potatoes, I dunno... it's kind of been my catch phrase in real life as well.

Just for good measure... WE'RE COOL. >___>
