Pimpage!

Posted on 2006.10.13 at 04:35
The first part of a lovely multichapter Trio fic has gone up at The Quidditch Pitch.

I was a little help to the author in getting it up, mainly in the form of convincing her to publish. The author seems to feel that I am a mere flatterer when I tell her that it's really, really wonderful, so I won't squee about it here.

I will say that it's a powerful story, beautifully written, and once you've headed over to TQP and read All They Had Not Lost, I'm guessing that you'll say the same.

So what are you doing here? Go, read, enjoy!

10 points to Allosaurus house for excellent cheerleading!

You are a flatterer, but that doesn't mean that what you say is not true.

Don't you hate smarmy people who post links to dictionary definitions?

I mean, aren't people like that just so smug and condescending?

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/flatter

Second definition:

1. to try to please by complimentary remarks or attention.
2. to praise or compliment insincerely, effusively, or excessively
3. to represent favorably; gratify by falsification


So, I apologize for being a smarmy, smug, condescending bastard.

Will you please stop apologising all the time! *whimper*

I post links to dictionary definitions, so I assume you are being sarcastic here - otherwise I am totally confused.

Your dictionary link hangs my admittedly dodgy computer ( network problems today ) but parts of the second definition apply to you IMHO - you are certainly effusive, and this is not a bad thing.

I know nothing about the circumstances of your conception, but you are neither smarmy nor condescending, and smugness is allowed today since you got Mrs Q to write such a splendid story.

I'm sorry.

It's only smarmy, smug and condescending when I do it. No, seriously, I've seen folks take offense at it, so I try to make sure that I don't. My chief weapon is Self-deprecation and ruthlessness. Two! My two chief weapons--

smugness is allowed today since you got Mrs Q to write such a splendid story.

Oh, I am due no credit on that score. She ahd already written it. I just got her to post it for you to see.

I'm just so thrilled that other people get to see what a marvelous story this is.

I've spent a while urging Q to get this out there. Finally, I'm not the only one who knows.

Oh, and look at her go!

She's already up to seven reviews! That's more than any story I have up there except "Harry Potter and the Unwinnable Fight." And almost half of the reviews for that story can really be counted as one review, since they're all from one (lovely, wonderful, glorious) reviewer.

Go, go, Q!
