    Re: In which I totally make random nonsense up as I go along

    I don't think I've laughed this hard at reading something since The Sarah Saga. I'm excited as anything for the next installment. So far, it's been great moment after another.

    Tyler you're really great

    THE VEGANS
    LOVE ALL LIFE BY BECOMING TERRORISTS

    LOGIC????


    can we get some PETA in here and a mentality similar to "The South will rise again!" but with animals because I'm sure that would also be pretty great
    I dunno it's something I immediately thought about ahaha

    I read this while listening to Kamek's theme. It goes without saying that it was perfect.

    Well Boalt, your writing style is as distinctive as ever and it's always hilarious. This is such a great intro, all the characters introduced suddenly died and it seems as if it amounted to nothing, but that seems to make it so much better. It was very funny and actually did introduce the Vegan Vigilantes, whoever they may be, and certainly makes me wait for more in anticipation.

    Re: Veganarchy

    yes I would use my own hair to repair my socks too if I was a crazy vegan... person...


    it's funny because we actually have a candidate that I hear the political ad for every morning that has part of the dude's name
    PAYDAY PEYTON or something like that
    he did a thing with loans? I don't know. arizona politics are really dumb.


    (a funny coincidence that you would include details from arizona, WHO KNOWS WHY THIS WOULD HAPPEN)
    (I really love how silly this story is and I hope everything ties together neatly in the end omg)

    Re: Veganarchy

    Yes this is good and it cheers me right up
    keep up the good work Boalt
    it is good

    EDIT: More specifically, the line 'Hell Bent for Pleather' had me cracking up, and pretty much the entire Fanimal backstory segment. Partially because I think crazy cat ladies are hilarious.

    He were not hanged. He would not answer aye or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they'd hang him surely, and auction out his property. So he stand mute, and died Christian under the law. And so his sons will have his farm. It is the law, for he could not be con-demned a wizard without he answer the indictment, aye or nay... Great stones they lay upon his chest until he plead aye or nay. They say he give them but two words. "More weight," he says. And died.

    Re: Veganarchy

    GLORIOUS COMMENTS (damn now this means I can't put off reading your story much longer either aaaaaaa being busy sucks)

    The "Hell Bent on Pleather" thing was actually based on a real story I read a while back where some group (when in doubt, guess PETA) actually petitioned Judas Priest to do that. I don't remember how I found it or why I was reading it (I don't even really know or care that much about the band) but when I started on the pleather rant it came to mind and I had to include it somehow.

    Good news and bad news! The good news is that I'll be writing a whole lot and updating soon! ...the bad news is that I'm horribly far behind because I've been really busy the past few days! But hopefully things will go somewhere good! I'm legitimately as in the dark as everyone else, I've planned nothing at all and just write what comes to me as it comes to me.

    Re: Veganarchy

    Caught up on parts two and three. I really loved the part of Denton's speech where he talked about eating books... ditto the part where it described what an abysmal failure VanCleve was during the debate.

    I have no idea where you're going with this, but rest assured I'll still be following along. :P

    Re: Veganarchy

    I have to say, this story is brilliant so far. If you're making it up as you go along, then it means you're more prone to suggestions...

    Also for some reason I can see fanimals getting into a shootout with PETA. With seals in the crossfire. I don't know why, and it totally wasn't a suggestion. I'm not that subtle.

    For some reason this reminds me strongly of The Man Who Was Thursday (albeit way more bonkers). Excellent work, Boalt, you had me in stitches.

    Re: Veganarchy

    This is a really short part (only 548 words) but here we introduce two new major characters! They haven't actually said or done anything yet, they'll be more properly introduced in the next part.

    Spoiler: part 4 


    4626/15003 words. Way behind but I'm going to catch up. Expect at least two more updates this weekend.

    Re: Veganarchy

    So, McDonalds was gone, then. That was certainly… well, atypical to say the very least. Usually if those places were going to blow up, it was due to some depressed employee not paying very much attention and, in their stupor, causing a horribly damaging grease fire. The higher-ups at McDonalds called this a “McAccident” and, out of the goodness of their “McHearts”, they would offer the ailing employee a series of extensive psychological therapy sessions – the higher-ups termed this “McHelp” – for no charge. Invariably, the employee was either fired – the higher-ups called this one “McRegression” – or came back enamored with their job – the regular employees called this “McZombification”.
    Literally everything about this paragraph. Also, Dickson's introduction is pure gold.

    Pretty sure that the McParagraph wins the award for Best Thing Written Under the Influence of NaNoWriMo award.

    Also really interested in seeing where you're gonna go with Spits. He seems like there would be a lot of stuff you could do to play off his character with, for the purpose of comedy.

    Haha, the chemistry (or lack thereof? I dunno, whatever) between Spittler and Dickson is great. It's so much better when characters have clashing personalities.

    Phase two begins! And for your reference later, here's the song mentioned in the 4th paragraph.

    Spoiler: Part 6 


    1350 words. Total is 7007/16670 (though as it's now the 11th here, I guess that'd now be 18337).

    Re: Veganarchy

    Update! But first I'll just address something...

    Quote Originally Posted by Lenore View Post

    Just a general timeline for reference, because this is a partially nonlinear story (mostly linear but occasionally jumping around):

    1. Denton becomes the Fanimals' President
    2. The paragraph starting with "Impact" and talking about Hitler (I dunno, a year or two before the actual story)
    3. VanCleve's meeting with Denton (roughly late Spring/early Summer of this year)
    4. McDonalds explosion, basically the first part (a few days after the presidential election of this year)
    5. The Fanimals meeting where Denton enters dramatically and shows off the NY Aquarium (around midnight, so roughly 9 hours after the explosion)
    6. Spittler and Dickson arrive (the day of the explosion late at night, roughly the same time as the Fanimals meeting)
    7. Spittler and Dickson meet with the police (the day after the explosion)
    8. Today's update (same day as 7)

    I think from this point on everything will be linear save for flashbacks for exposition (ala the whole rally with the Hitler suit guy). The one exception is I may finish the underground Fanimals meeting soon; depends on if I'd rather finish that or keep what happened in the dark. Leaning towards the former but you never know.

    ANYHOW HERE'S PART 7
    Spoiler: Part 7 


    1407 words. I'm really far behind, 8414/25005... but I'm going to have plenty of time the next few days to work and the 20th through the 25th will give me a ton of time to catch up.

    VanCleve as a hobo is kind of incredibly amazing. And the Spittler/Dickson "partnership" (if you can call it that, haha) is as great as ever.
