Your post served no purpose other than to point out that X event in recent media bears a striking resemblence to an event in one of your fanfics, handily providing a link at the same time. Something you make a habit out of, no matter how inane the similarity. The fact that it's not even an uncommon thing in this instance just makes the plug kinda sad - seriously, I could be here all year just listing characters that's happened to. The world of fiction is a finite number of ideas repeating in different configurations... something as innocuous as this is not worth the time I've spent writing this sentence.

Do this again in one of my forums and I'll just delete your post.

If you say '****ing', shouldn't you say '****list' too? Kids and parents may be reading.
Lots of parents are reading. Lots of kids are reading - I'm somebody's kid and I'm not offended by it. I didn't put a single asterisk in my last post, and I ain't responsible for configuring the autocensor. If I was, then it wouldn't blank out part of the word S****horpe.

To add to this:

If you want to advertise your fan fiction you are more than welcome to put a link to the appropriate threads in your sig. However, dropping off-topic links to the stories in totally unrelated topics comes off as quite obnoxious. You would get the same reaction if you posted a link to your (hypothetical) thread in the Trade forum every time someone mentioned a character you were trying to flog a toy of. It annoys the people who are trying to have an on-topic conversation and it actually makes people less likely to read your story than if you hadn't managed to irritate them.

Please find a less-intrusive way to advertise your stories in the future.
