My fate...that was beautiful. Absolutely - freaking - beautiful. I quite loved all of the references to the different groups and threads; that put a very nice touch on this fun little satire. I really don't have anything to correct (and I don't think I'd be able to find any errors; I still have tears in my eyes from laughing so hard), so I'm just going to add quirky comments whenever I can:
How could you all go to that one restaurant that you all hate? Don't you all live in three different countries? And doesn't one of you in particular live in a different hemisphere than the other two? XD Logic does not compute.

Readers glanced over the shoulders of writers hard at work, everyone munching chocolate eggs and marshmallow peeps and gummy bears, which they shared heartily amongst themselves, but for the few Jews for whom it was the second to last day of Passover. Instead, they had the privilege of chomping on edible cardboard, also known as matza, and nobody really wanted any of that
(b-but thank you for offering).
Could that be a subtle reference to Visitor Messages? XD
The gentle hum of conversation filled the Café, members sitting in plush couches and seats sipping from bowl-sized mugs as they chatted about Writing, Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Only relatively dead? I don't think that it's a case of the Princess Bride where the forum's only "mostly dead"; all that's missing in this case is the death certificate itself.
The Non-Pokémon section was relatively dead as always, but what else was new?
Jeez louise...you really did think of everything, didn't you? XD Mass kudos and much respect.
“Kingpin. They’ve done it.”
A fake cigar dropped to the floor in the head mafia office, a bit of spittle flying off the end of it.
It's an honest mistake, but you may want to cut out the "of mediocrity"; it makes the sentence sound unrealistic.
“The transport is ready. Fanfiction.net is a cesspool of mediocrity
, but it will sustain us.”
XDD I think I died of laughter when I read this. My earthbound ghost will now type the rest of this review. XD
“We have to do something!”
“There’s nothing we can do but try to get away,
before it’s too late.”
“Damn it, we can’t just run! We stand for good! For justice!”
“Dude, it’s just a name.”
You just keep nailing scene after scene with this fic. Seriously, I'm absolutely loving this April Fools satire. It demonstrates every little quirk about the Fanfiction forum on Serebii, and it's so enjoyable to read from an insider's perspective.
“Darn, I was so looking forward to the Awards this year.”
“I actually put in the effort and read every single nominated fic so I could vote fairly.”
“Oh, I just voted for the fics I read and put ‘No Vote’ for everything else."
XD I bet you loved putting that line in there.
The Almighty Rules faded away into nothingness. Not a **** was given that day.
Yeah, what the hell, mods? Thanks a lot for deleting me out of existence for a few hours. I don't think that my boss would've considered that a good excuse to miss work. :P
“What the hell, mods?!” the entire forum seemed to shout in unison.
...Well, at least we know that mods make mistakes like the rest of us. XD
The first turned to the second. “You did post the Important Announcement, right?”
The second blushed. “Oh. Oops.”
The third huffed. “Well, that’s just great...”
But anyway, I quite loved this fic. It's not really Pokemon-based, so it threw me off for a bit, but when I realized what it was about, it quickly became a joy to read. I just loved the fact that you poked as much fun at this forum as you did; it's not often that I see people in general do that, much less a moderator. Then again, it was April Fools...
So, yeah, I did love that fic...aside from me dying from laughter. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna try and sneak past St. Peter; the jerk wouldn't let me in the last five times I tried to get through the pearly gates by legal means.
Warmonger - A fantasy fic where peasants fight the wars of kings and lords, where monsters lurk in the night, and where depravity is not only expected, but encouraged...
