And the last one is simple, either go into competition with them on a major scale, or join Great Justice and work directly for Haruhi.

Oh, there are so many other things one could do... but 'danes and fendanes tend to think of "jobs" as "things one does to earn money" instead of "things one does to survive and thrive". Hence the book.

(This one will make a lot more sense if you hang out at SpaceBattles, read lots of Evangelion fanfic or both.)

"Damn it! Do you have any idea how hard it was to get that as a print edition?"
"You dropped a copy of Nobody Dies in the Handwavium and that's what you're focusing on?"

Which brings me to the conclusion that the Fenspace version of All The Tropes has a page titled "http://allthetropes.orain.org/wiki/Cat ... _Different]Our Reis Are Different"...

You forgot one.  Wink
(Yeah, thinking of coming back.  Thinking on it.  BAT and Roughriders stuff keeps popping up in my head.)

Yasuri Nanami is my number one waifu, if only because she would horribly murder all the others if they didn't shut up and toe the line.

"Is 'platonic tsundere' a thing? Because if it is, it perfectly describes Haruhi's attitude to Noah now they're back on speaking terms. But don't tell her I said that!"

Which one - McManus, Peters, the Jason, or Xanatos?

(We can't make the title too long, and Marsden, Scott, and O'Neill are the most famous multimillionaires in the Convention.)

"Over the next ninety seconds, we'll learn about the upgrades to Alphaville's most famous law-enforcement agent, the Copper Copper, we'll get Opportunity's opinion of the latest changes to the Mars Terraforming Project, Leonard da Quirm will bring us up to date on what's happening at the Vesta Institutes, we'll hear three new songs by Amadeus Ex Machina, Li Kohran will tell us about the upcoming season of 'Red Lad,' and of course there's Stupid Exocomp Tricks! Now, here's the Convention's favourite AI talk-show host, Jay Lenovo!"

(because there has to be an AI subculture in Fenspace, considering how much faster they think than the rest of the characters)

The scariest thing about being a Madboy, is that you just can't control what triggers it. I mean, I didn't start because I wanted to, I did it because I just had to confirm it. I had to know if I was right and there really was a danger. And then I loaded it up into a reaction simulator and I watched it go and it scared me. And then it sparked, inspiration struck and I just had to...... I couldn't help it. You can't help it You can't think about anything else, you can't focus on anything else. Not work. Not people. Not class time. All there is, is that flare in your mind and the ideas sparking off it. The obsession just sort of consumes your mind and eats its way out until you can't sleep at night because the seething cauldron in your brain just won't die down and no matter how much you don't want to build it and how much you even hate knowing about something so sinister, you know you'll go insane if you just don't let it out and let it let you go.

So you go down to the computer, boot up autoCAD, and sketch out a design for a weapon capable of turning a good chunk of the moon's surface into glass.... solely because you have to know it's possible. And it is. And wen you see it on the printer, you see how you can improve it too. It just flows, filling your mind with inspiration you don't want to have a can't contain. Just add a speed-drive coil to the tamper and it'll old the implosion together just a few milliseconds longer and maybe now you can use it as a trigger for something bigger......

I stopped myself before I built anything real. I deleted the plans the next day. But I can't erase what I learned, and I can't loose the feeling that I know sin.

That's the dark side of madness. Sometimes it goes places I really wish it wouldn't go....

.... Yikes. Hope the user is wearing one HELL of a personal shield, because that's gonna make a Davy Crockett look tame by comparison.

.... Okay, when the Hive Mind coughs up something like this, you know it is something that MUST BE.

Alternatively, that might as well be a Quote to Hang A Story On, too.
