    thank god I don't write or care about Fanfics. I only care about the official stuff. Fanfics are far too confusing for me.

    On a good note though. maybe this will help some folks write better fanfics.

    Microsoft Office Owners Rejoice?

    I don't get it, why would Microsoft Office Owners Rejoice? rtf isn't special to Microsoft Office.

    Something that strikes me after reading that is that the art in Drift #1 at times let down the script as it were. For example when Deadlock is fleeing from the Decepticons on the ship and gets shot in the shoulder it says in the script that he winces, whereas in the comic he just sort of stands there. Another example is during the Decepticon victory scene - it says he just shoots NotCarnivac in the face, whereas in the comic it's kind of muddled (one scene NotCarnivac has his back turned, the next he doesnt, the next he does etc)

    Good stuff. But yea odd for the author this post to say office owners rejoice.

    The RTF format, though developed by Microsoft, was specifically designed to be a cross-platform format, its mean to be opened on pretty much all word processors. lol

    My thoughts exactly. Doh!

    Never read the comic, but tidy script. Shame if the artwork doesn't live up to it as one poster mentioned.

    Darn. I was hoping to see the dead Hot Shot and SG Ravage to be specifically scripted.

    Nope. We already knew a while back that Milne added those two because his friend who dislikes Walky asked him to put those two in as cameos.

    Regardless, it does seem a bit unprofessional.

    Yeah yeah, everyone knows that, but it's most often used with Office. It's like calling a bandage strip a fuckin' band-aid. I mean, of all the things to hung up over...

    How so? I though it was fun. Comics should be fun.

    Geesh. Tough crowd. One would think that he who pokes fun at so many could, you know, take some himself. Not like he's ever poked fun at TFW2005, myself, the fandom in general, or various other entities on that comic strip of his. Right? :)

    I <3 Walky, like a lot, but his response was a lot more unprofessional. Dead generics are allowed to be joke characters. Usually Walky is the first to say that Transformers isn't exactly srs bizness.
