As the ruling stands, they'd just have to arrange for somebody to do their shopping, etc. for them.

I'm probably annoying you with all my random fic-related questions, but something bothered me about Morphic. When the Morphs' parents grow old and die, who takes care of them? Since they can't go outside and need someone to get things for them.

All right, that's cool. Glad I could at least help. Lots of respect for you as a writer.

No, you don't sound like an ass. You found it underwhelming and you explained why. That's not being an ass; that's being constructive and it's appreciated even if it happens not to match up with my intentions for the story. Please don't think I was offended or angered by your comments.

Ah, okay. Thanks for that clarification. My lord, I sound like such an ass when I'm commenting. ;_;

These are actually pretty fun to read. It's a nice, serious discussion underneath the initial bizarreness of the principle. Two characters, just…talking.



I actually was reminded of Pulp Fiction in this one. Seems like the kind of discussion that would end up there. Very real, natural, believable.

Mudskipper: Mm, it's not quite intended explicitly as humour so much as just 'here are characters, witness them having a bizarre conversation'. If you find it pricelessly funny and enjoy it because of that, that's great, but I'm not writing jokes or punchlines; I'm just writing these characters being themselves and watching what happens when they talk about subjects that strike me as potentially amusing to write. I didn't even realize people would find Dave and Mia Discuss Sex particularly funny until people started commenting on it (hence the big "okay, I know this is completely pointless and just an excuse to have them interact, so skip it if you don't care about that" disclaimer). So "trying to make readers laugh"? Well, I… wasn't, really. Again, if you laugh, that's great, but it's not actually there to be humourous, so suggesting I make Mia's political opinions funnier than they actually are just defeats the entire point, to me.



Rainbow-Starlight: She doesn't really get fiction, either. If she read them she would probably find the Code pretty stupid, because they keep obeying these arbitrary rules for no good reason, and they keep killing themselves which is just the dumbest thing in the universe.



…maybe I'll write a third one on fiction of some sort now.

I love these. XD They're funny and awesome. Mia is my favorite Morphic character.



Also… I can't help but wonder what Mia's reaction would be if she read Scyther's Story and Fall of a Leader.

THANK YOU for stating what I've been trying to say about our government system for months, (Not saying that we have any better alternatives, but…)

and still keeping the humor. I love getting inside Mia's head, so, if you got more, keep it coming.

I dunno, maybe a bit more laughable humor would make it better. As it stands, Mia seems more like a bad troll than anything, which doesn't have as much comedic value as some of your other humor. I suppose it could be awkward trying to make readers laugh using only a conversation between two mismatched characters, but maybe it's just my standards for humor that are too high. I just don't find flat-out ignorance funny for some reason.

I love these! I'm sure I'm not the only one that was sad after the end of Morphic and the end of any further writing about these characters. Plus, I'm always a fan of getting into character's heads.

Her completely missing the point sort of is the point, as is the fact his justifications are necessarily absurd because the principles democracy is actually based on mean nothing to her. I'm not sure exactly what you want me to do.

Mia mostly just seems to be missing the basic point of government, and Dave is just bad at explaining it. Kind of missed the mark for me. :\
