Comments For The Unbearable Smugness of Being (FŽanor)
Oh, this is one of my favorite send-ups of all time, so it was great to be reminded of it on the Clash of the Titans. Clash indeed. When I got to "you're working on my last nerve here," I seriously burst out laughing. And Eru letting "evolution have a go" so he invents people "who invented steroids and professional wrestling." I do love the way you think. Cheers!
I'm glad you found this one and enjoyed it again, Elfscribe. It was a lot of fun writing the dialogue for this, with all the moderisms and snarkiness. Thanks so much for your comments.
This was so funny, and so well written!
Thanks, Silver! Some stories just kind of write themselves, and this was one of them. I appreciate your comments.
I enjoyed reading this (my third time now)! So funny to have Melkor and Feanor stuck in one place and forced to deal with each other. I loved the "Oh's" and the prolonged silence afterwards, the semantics debate, the Feanorian smugness. The Big Bang! was priceless!
Thanks so much whitewave, and I'm sorry about the looong delay in replying. I'm glad you enjoyed the story and I appreciate your comments. These two were fun to write.
Okay, when I finally stop laughing, which may take a while ;), I will put it up on the list of my favorites. This is utterly hilarious and verrrrry clever :) Thanks a lot for sharing it!
Author's Response: Please forgive me for the late reply. I just noticed your review. This place doesn't email me like some other places do. Or maybe I'm not doing it right. Anyway, thanks so much Robinka! I'm glad this made you laugh, I had fun with it. :-)
*snicker* This is great! I've been wanting to read this for some time now ... I'm definitely not disappointed. You get Feanor's voice perfect. :^D Thanks for sharing!
Author's Response: Oshun got me interested in Feanor because she has such a definite and interesting take on his character. I can't get into writing the heavy stuff because I haven't read all the Silm yet, so I do the humor instead. This was a fun story to write and I'm glad you found it and liked it. Thanks for commenting. :-)
Whee! I am so excited to see you have posted this wonderful story here. Can't begin to explain how really funny it is. And this from a critic who adores Fëanor. I do have to admit a certain smugness about the fact that Fëanor is more eloquent and has a better vocabulary. On the other hand, for the sake of getting a few cheap laughs (one has to do that when writing comedy, I completely understand, no need to apologize) you did have to give Melkor a few good lines.
Author's Response: Well, with your encouragement I decided to chance it. I tried to make them equally matched in ego but everyone knows Feanor is the smarter one. ;-) Thanks for your encouragement, your betaing, and your comments. You're so good to me.*hugs*
