Yeah, that's why I never responded myself. Times like that, it's just best not to do so.
Also, sorry about never actually noticing your other threads. I'm not sure what exactly was wrong with me to miss them. My best bet is I'm an idiot. In any case, the first one's actually not that bad. The battles are done pretty well especially, and I do like the reveal with Tucker.
Brofist for your latest post on the planning thread. To be completely frank and honest, I can't really come up with any possible method involving screwing with the competition's timeline that would result in a decrease in bias. I tried to explain that no matter what, someone was going to get ignored in the end because no one reads every fic in a year anyway, but eh. I got this vibe that the only reason why my post didn't make sense was because she isn't really open to other opinions about the matter. But as the Pokémon Anon Meme on LJ hilariously pointed out recently, she just does that sometimes, right?
By the by, I've decided to go back through your story from the beginning because I didn't even realize that it's called ^3 for a reason (which probably explains why I was so confused about who the main character was for a long while -- lol about that one for as long as you'd like), which is part of the reason why I still haven't caught up yet. Buuut it's really interesting to compare those chapters with your latest writing style, so I'm having enough fun that I might be done soon. ;D
