Val has frozen that thread of comments in her livejournal, so I guess this is the best place to reply.
But I still love you, even though you've been increeedibly snarky to me all those times.
Sorry about that, but apparently, I come off as snarky and/or condescending without meaning to, both online and in person. Once someone gets to know me, they evidently don't notice it as easily, or tend to shrug it off. I'm working on becoming less abrasive.
But are you hounding on my interests?! Hmph.
I wasn't hounding on them. You had asked why you couldn't stop reading, and one of my theories was that the story has plenty of details that would interest you. I picked out that interests that seemed to apply best, not ones I felt like criticizing.
But seriously... Do you have anything else like this? >>
I don't know how far along you are with the story... I know it's possible to finish in 12 hours, but the actual rate depends on the reader's level of interest and amount of spare time. If you're still reading it, just keep going, because the narrator/author mentions other projects toward the end that you might find interesting, including but not limited to another work of fiction that may or may not involve at least one survivor from John Dies at the End.

Ah, Val.

And, hey, I like snarkiness. It's not dull, and I get a laugh, even if it's directed towards me. Also, I was joking about my interests and such; I get a lot of flack, and I know you don't know it, but I thought the "seriously" part in my next sentence would show that. (The hmph! was kinda a clue too... Sorry.) o.O But I had just woken up at the time. (I remember this because Val got onto me for calling you snarky!)

And I got to page 24 last night before homework called; I still really like it but it's Homecoming Week at my HS, so I'm starting to get busy. Thank you for telling me, however! I'll probably check them out.

I figured you were joking, but I tend to lean toward a better-safe-than-sorry policy, especially on the internet, extra especially since I read about certain scientific studies that came out six months ago, a more recent version of which is found here.
FYI, David Wong argues that this is one of the seven main reasons why the modern world is making us miserable.

Ah, page 24. Almost halfway through already. Well, in my opinion, the story's better at night, so there's no harm in saving it for the weekend, when you can stay up late. I recommend restarting from page 22 or 23, though, so all the important stuff is still fresh.

Ah, wow... o_o I guess I never really realized all of that, seeing as my online friends and I use emotes and faces and ... well, just stuff a lot to convey our feelings otherwise. But then again, there have been many misunderstandings, too, but still. The things you don't realize!

Yeah, I was planning on waiting until this weekend. And I think I'll do that, restarting a few pages before. Thanks for the recommendation. :3
