What...you don't use water, or trees, or people, or anything that currently exists in this world at all? If you knew anything about fan fiction, you'd know that we create everything from the plot to the characters, to the setting, etc. The ONLY thing we use, talking about pokemon, is the species and the idea of pokemon existing. JUST like using a dog or a cat. But that's not fan fiction of animals, ohh no. Basically you're saying people who write fan fiction don't make things up. Are you kidding? Or are you just totally oblivious?

Some people make me boil on the inside. >.>

GS, I think Cobalt just meant that they write original fiction...? :/ There was no accusation of us being unable to make things up, just that they didn't do that and wrote stories that weren't set in an established universe (other than Earth, obviously).

Yeah, but saying "I make things from scratch" is really degrading, because it's implying that since he writes original fiction, people who write fan fiction don't "make things up from scratch". It sounded a bit haughty to me. >.>

Even so, it's not usually an offensive term, and I don't think Cobalt meant it to be particularly haughty. :/ Well, whatever. No hard feelings, y/y?
