Speaking of FO:E...I'm working on it! D:
Also, I said this in the skype chat, but I'll say it here also. The whole guide is under my name, but various members wrote various pieces. If you are quoting a section credited to someone else, put their name in the quote box, instead of mine.
I mean, you don't have to, but it'd be nice.

It's honestly something that I enjoyed, reading over it. 'Specially Shmeckie's part in all of it, it's a wonder why he's and the rest of you all who made this guide are as funny as you are. (Yeah I'm asskissing, only because it's rightfully deserved.) I don't tend to think of myself as someone who would post a mock(I'm too damn passive agressive when it comes to insults for my own damn good) but I'll be honest, if I ever start one first I would consult this guide along with other past mocks to hopefully point me in the right direction. So in essence I have to say thanks for all the tips.

Why wasn't this written years ago? It's insightful, helpful, and over all a good guide.

In terms of funny, though, well it falls short.

I thought this was insightful and a good manual to mocks in general not just PA if you ask me. Although at least in regard of character mocks, I tend to have a slightly different opinion *shrug*
At least when it involves no OC and not just some random crossover of every character you can think of.

While you can in fact write a character-based mock where the characters you use match the fanfic being lampooned (like using Son Goku for a DBZ-fanfic), I'm not quite sure how this would be an improvement.

I had a fun time reading this guide! I see a lot of the mistakes I made when I mock here, so I'm definitely gonna remember this guide the next time I decide to mock something.

Any feedback on the Guide itself? Critique? Praise? Offerings of virgin bodies, wine and gold?

I think this guide was really well-written, and most importantly, entertaining. Now, I don't have enough gold that suits your standard of an "offering", don't have any decent wines. I do have a half-empty bottle of Tequila, if that counts for anything, and while I am a virgin, I'm still trying to become worthy of licking sepai's boots. Got any burned offering cravings?

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

The second step is anal sex.

I've really enjoyed this! This gave me some good insight on mocking and I learned some things, too!

(Like making a enjoyable mock.)

I feel kind of bad, because with your description of trollfics I'm pretty sure the World League of Cartoon Quidditch, which I attempted to mock, pretty much fits the bill line. May as well wash my hands of the bastard and move on.

Other than that, great guide, very informative. Good jobs, guys.

Yet those eyes will never see anything again...

I did a little cleaning up in this thread since there was a ton of garbage piling up beneath the original post. I let a lot of stuff slide around here, as most of you are aware, but I think pinned threads deserve to be spared the fate of being overrun with petty, unrelated bullshit.

The guide itself was something I enjoyed quite a bit. I agree with the majority of the points made and am of the opinion that there's a lot of sound advice in there. I personally don't believe there are too many (if any) concrete rules when it comes to something like making fun of someone's writing; that said, the tips you guys shared seem to me like solid general guidelines that could prove helpful to folks with less experience. Hell, it even got me to raise my eyebrows a couple times, so I'd say members far beyond the newbie stage can still benefit from giving the thing a once-over. You can never have so much experience that comparing notes isn't a worthwhile use of your time.

And for anyone who severely doubts the guide's usefulness, good for you. Independent thought is vastly underrated in our society. Please feel free to respectfully share your thoughts on why you disagree with the suggestions made so that we might all have the opportunity to learn something. Don't think you need to be pissy or passive-aggressive toward anyone, though. This guide is, after all, a collection of free advice that is in no way related to any official community rules. If you think you can do better going against the wisdom of others, then I encourage you to be the most obstinate little rebel you can be.

Wow, this was a good read, and I'm glad to have read it. It most certainly will help me out in the long run, and I look forward to make a DECENT mockery. I'm looking at a fanfic right now in fact... But whether or not I actually mock it will be determined by NUMEROUS factors. So yeah, thanks for the guide, I apreciate it, and look forward to actually becoming a member of the community.
