Why can't those writers steal good ideas instead of boring ones...

Well if they have to resort to stealing others' hard work to make up for their own shitty writing, chances are they simply don't know what a 'good' story is. Much like the mythical world of Outside, good stories are less a real thing and more of an abstract concept.

I'm not talking about plagiarism. It's just that they copy themes from bad stories instead of good ones.

Feels like going through a thick forest after a while. A bunch of fics are so AU, it feels like a contest to stuff as many generic ideas as possible without thinking about the consequences. Or how to make said ideas connect.

If they stole good ideas, they'd just make them worse

Yes, but they'd still have some distance to the floor. We're currently in the basement.

Coincidentally, I'm watching a demo of Crytek's CryEngine 3. It has Top Secret Tesselated Frog Tech.

Don't worry, they'll keep digging until they reach the other side of the Earth. Then they'll be hunky-dory.

Sorry, Silver. I'm Luna. I used to hang around the forum, chat with everyone here. But I left for a bit, to continue my education. But now I'm back. But it's no big. It's nice to meet you, though.

It's probably me. My memory is like a puddle in one hundred degree weather.

Nice to meet you, too. :)

It's no big. Don't worry about it.

And I'm normally very friendly. So I think we'll get along.
