Perhaps Q and Inc' could add quotation marks around the word out?

Please Q!

"Ugly"? Can't you use a word that fits more with the storyline?

They were ugly, as seen from the newcomer's perspective. Which just means that they were actually quite good looking, and this newcomer was a raving lunatic. I thought it was easy enough to put that together. []

No, no, no... it's not that kind of story, and you know it. []

You've started plenty of RPs here where you can let loose with your unique brand of humour. Like...

here,
here,
here,
here,
here,
here,
here,
here,
here,
and here.

You have a weird and quirky sense of humour. We get it. [] But can't we try and keep this story a lit bit more "saner" and you can get all goofy in the other threads? []

I agree with Thingol. The newcomer should not be a raving lunatic.
Play him as a sane person, and make him say something that makes sense as coming from a sane person - or don't play him at all.

Look at it from my perspective...oh wait, that might take eons. Oh well, if any species has a gift for brevity its the Q. Poof! The word has been changed.

It's possible to stop the sentence there and put a question-mark, or to continue it for a few more words. This time I decided to leave it open for the next poster to decide []

Okay, I am very confused by the dialogue []

Does it make any sense ? []

When Luke Q. MANDOS posts the last word, hope of making sense flies out the window.

I want to introduce a new rule here.
Whenever Q posts a word that doesn't make sense, we're free to ignore it and continue the sentence from the word before it as if he hadn't posted.

State in this thread that this is what you're doing, though, and I'll know to ignore his word when I update The full story.

Q, I hope that this will encourage you to work with us (as you have done occasionally) and not against us (as you have mostly done). Try to see where we're going and try to go in that direction, instead of running off on your own.

Let's try with his word this time.

But your rule seems [] to me, Varna []

I remember that we'd already zapped one of Q's word in the past, once []

Yes, we did.

This time it's actually possible to use it - at least with your addition, Inc' []
Whether it moves us on in the right direction, I'm less sure about, but at least it shouldn't lead us off the track.

Although I really want to be clear that mine is sharper. But not here, it isn't right place for discussing this. Follow me into the kitchen and I'll gouge your eyes out.

I love how I get to post the short words sometimes. My average post on the current page is two and two-thirds letters. []

Unless you effortlessly see a way to make Q's word 'feminine' a part of the story we are trying to tell, use the new rule and ignore it.
