Comments on Saturday 20 April 2002:
Holly is my favourite UpsideClone, with A Tale Of No Watermelons. [07:10]

Nightshade
Oh. Wow.
I think that's the best one I've read so far.
Thanks for posting the link, RB.

RavenBlack
Mmm, I like it best too, but you're not supposed to agree with me. You're supposed to like mine better, and start arguing with me about it. You cad.

Digi
I also prefer that one to any other I've read I'm afraid. 'Don't You Just Hate Stupid People' comes a very close second though.

RavenBlack
I should probably mention I was kidding. I'm more than happy for people to like Holly's writing more than mine. It's still mine really, just with an added layer of indirection. And it feeds my winning an argument.

Tom
Dear me. That's quite uncannily Ravenesque, in that I would have happily accepted it as originating from our host if he hadn't indirectly denied that possibility. Though (this is of course national pride talking) it does seem to have an indefinable Australian quality to it that I doubt the good Raven could achieve. I don't think I can explain what this is. Like the man said - "If you have to ask, you ain't never gonna know". And, I think this is more 'literary' than Raven. I have no thoughts on whether it's better.

Kevan
Winning an argument about a piece of writing about an artificially, dangerously over-competitive male? Hm.

Liked it, though. Nice writing and messages and ambiguities. A pity the Clone forums are still as dead as ever.

RavenBlack
Artificially, dangerously over-competitive? Nonsense. I can be more competitive than him.

Tom
I do wonder if Kevan is stalking me at times, every time I post a comment here he seems to be in the middle of the same activity.

Tabbie
Hmmmm... I liked it, but certainly not my favorite. Don't ask me exactly what my favorite clone is (might be mystery), cause I'm not sure. I just know that's not it. Sorry, I'm not usually disagreeable.

Tabbie
Also much liking goes to "Life's a bureaucracy, and then you die." Darn you Raven, making me go back and re-read through clones when I should be working!

RavenBlack
I hugely enjoy Tom's comparison on many levels. Thanks, Tom.

Tom
Well, dear me. You seem to have come up with the unanswerable blog comment. Remarkable. The only rejoinder involves aardvarks, but they really shouldn't be released.

Kevan
Hm, for what it's worth I found the Watermelon tale very, very reminiscent of some of the stuff of George of the Clown. Escalating, sensual list-thing, with pain.

No comment on the Tom-stalking.
