My pet troll...

August 9th, 2010 (12:31 pm)

My pet troll has now advised me to lose some weight and to wash my hair, because, apparently, it looks greasy! Sadly, she's still anonymous, but I've left her a reply because she seems to be a regular visitor...

I had a great time at writerconuk this weekend, meeting up with LJ friends, and I'll be posting my talk as soon as I get a minute to polish it...

ETA: Thanks to everyone on my f-list who's got involved in this. I'm about to disable anonymous comments because... well, it's got silly. Ms Anonymous is perfectly capable of being civilised -- her exchange with borax38 shows that -- but, for some reason, she won't be civilised with me. So... Goodbye Ms Anonymous, take your own advice, get a life, write your own stories, in your own language, and when you see a story with a pairing you don't like, JUST DON'T READ IT.

ETA2: We have called a truce, and agreed to be civil to each other.

Oh dear lord

Some people obviously have way too much time on their hands.

Oh Lordy..... She's been on the writercon site then. If only she had the maturity to post with her name not just anonymously...!!

ETA: Of course you can block her IP address if you've turned on that facility on your Lj if you want to get rid of her??

At the moment I'm still finding it quite funny, but if she gets any nastier, I'll do that!

We clearly need a special writerconuk post about all the fun we had mocking your troll - TOO MUCH FUN.

You know, what struck me is that he/she seemed more offended that they were non-canon pairings than by the fanfic in itself.

He/she seems to think that the characters are real.

I could take the comments more seriously if they weren't riddled with grammatical errors, and didn't attack me rather than my work.

hwaet ye phoque?

Oh jeeze, the personal attack. That's always used as an insult when all else fails.

It's so childish, and is it wrong I want to pinch her cheeks and pat her on the head?

If she doesn't like your pairing of choice, then why does she keep reading? Chick has too much time on her hands. I'm assuming she's female, because only a woman would attack another about her appearance.

Not a woman, but a 12 year old. Girls that age haven't yet mastered the art of cattiness and subtle barbs.

Oh for the love of Betsy (whoever she is), maybe by responding, we're enabling this 12 year old. It's damn good fun though...

Ignore, ignore, ignore. Perhaps she's jealous. Yeah, that's it. Why else would she be constantly nipping at you for attention. Its like my theory on the Joker; he's constantly doing dastardly things to get Batman's attention because ultimately he wants Batman to kill him. He does succeed by doing something utterly inexcusable-

Um...just ignore that Joker theory and her too. You're waaay better than that.

Horny as hell!

(But mild-mannered and placid with it ;-)

Posted by: Laura (borax38)
Posted at: August 9th, 2010 03:54 pm (UTC)

I just don't get it. She was nice with me, defended her arguments calmly, seemed very sensitive, and then I would look down at what she wrote to you and … Urgh. I don't understand why she got so mean.

Posted by: ningloreth (ningloreth)
Posted at: August 9th, 2010 04:11 pm (UTC)

I don't really understand why she gets so worked up with me. If her comments had been reasonable, I'd have talked to her civilly, just like you did. We both seem to love Legolas, but she's missed the opportunity to make a friend, and it's her loss.

Legolas

Hugs to you.

Should I feel spared that she seem to not yet find my story journal and read my LOTR stories there. They sure would make her work up, espacially those AU stories I have Legolas as a fenelf and sees as the opposite of what the character meeting him is.

Everything that happens around all kind of fandoms, so much tell me that if I love to write then I do write and write for feeling happy. If I decided to post it it can be as much for myself to be able to read the stories I written as for the hope others will do. If they don't like it... they can always hit the back button, and not finish reading.

Thank you!

I suppose we should be grateful that the vast majority of people who comment on our stories do so favourably. As you say, we post them in the hope that other people will enjoy them. We post them as gifts.

You do seem particularly personally blessed with this person. Glad to see you had plenty of stout defenders!

Posted by: ningloreth (ningloreth)
Posted at: August 9th, 2010 06:20 pm (UTC)

She and I seem to have called a truce.

But, yes, it's been lovely to have been so well defended.

I don't have profile here so I wrote as anonymous and today I told my name here to someone who beat me for I'm anonymous.

Posted by: ningloreth (ningloreth)
Posted at: August 9th, 2010 06:18 pm (UTC)

I've explained to you (above) why people respond badly to someone who comments anonymously -- it's because they assume you're doing it to prevent them replying to you.

Why don't you open a LiveJournal account so people will take you seriously? Then you can make friends with other people who only like 'true' couples, and join in with their discussions.

I'm so sorry you've had to deal with this! The pet troll needs a leash and a life! Obviously he/she's got nothing better to do than make idiotic comments.

*gives Ning a big hug*

By the way, I read the story while I was there and loved it. You write so well!

I'm always late to the party, lol.

It seems that there has been a truce declared, so all I will say is that I love your Legolas/Eowyn pairing and I hope to see more of them in the future.

Keep writing what you love.

Posted by: ningloreth (ningloreth)
Posted at: August 11th, 2010 09:26 am (UTC)

Thank you :-) I have a couple of Draco/Hermione things to finish and then I plan to get back to Legolas/Eowyn.

I'm sort of itching to get back to them, but sort of suffering from writer's block with them at the same time :-/
