I have no intention of insulting your friends, I apologise if it came across that way. But a lot of what you say to support your arguments seem to revolve around what your friend says on the subject; it doesn't hold up as a good defence for what you're trying to convey, because they're not here. It's a sort of "he said/she said" situation, but I can't just take your friend's word for it because of the argument you're trying to make, to say nothing of the fact that I don't know them.SentimentOfTruth:
Piccolo Sky is a very skilled, very experienced writer. He's written around a six Book and one side-story FINAL FANTASY Crossover Fanfiction telling the story of the Espers/Eidolons/et cetera, and chiefly Bahamut, from most or all of the FINAL FANTASY series, through the ages, named THE SERVANT, comprised of around three million eight hundred fifty thousand words, very in-depth characterization, themes, philosophy, plot, setting, and more that he wrote from - or at least began to Post on Fanfiction.Net - from February Seventh, 2006 to January Thirty-First, 2014; and a lot of other Fanfiction besides, on Fanfiction.Net and FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC Fiction - where I haven't been as I haven't seen MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC - and elsewhere. He knows what he's talking about.
But I'm not saying that he knows more about what he's talking about than anyone else here. Can you please not insult one of my friends?
Though he likely *does* know what he's talking about more than most people. He doesn't spend a lot of time attempting to convince people of his perspectives, though; he believes arguing on the Internet is pointless because of the general decency, empathy, intelligence, and maturity level of most people on the Internet. I disagree.
And I have drawn my own conclusions as well as listened to his. But listening to his conclusions is important, too. Don't tell me that I'm not feeling and thinking for myself, or not to rely on him. I do do that, but I depend on my friends and their perspectives too. If you can't trust your friends and their perspectives, who, and whose perspectives, can you trust?
I'll respond to the rest, and Astertide's Post on Page Four, in an Edit of this or another Message.
"My friends are my power!"-Sora
Further apologies for my bluntness, but the amount of fan-fiction your friend has written also doesn't lend any credence to what you're saying they have said in my eyes. No matter how well-versed they may be, to which I cannot attest, that doesn't mean much because they're not talking; you are. You're at the center of this conversation.
