A quick and handy guide to commenting on my stories!

The guidelines to good commenting!
1.) Be polite -- I understand that discussions can sometimes get heated, and I will let these discussions resolve themselves so long as everyone keeps their flamethrowers on the British setting. Hyperbole is about the most I will tolerate. Posting in such a way as to anger or incite another reader (or myself) will warrant intervention.
2.) Respond to the subject at hand -- If a comment is left on a Mente Materia chapter, I hope it is related to what happened in that chapter or to the story as a whole. Occasional questions or comments may be acceptable so long as they aren't drug out into multi-comment discussions that are not related to the medium that the comments are being posted to.
3.) If the first rule cannot be followed in the comments, I will ask you to move it to private messages or user page comments. If the second cannot be followed, I will ask you to move it to the Stardust forums, private messages or user pages.

I suppose the first and last guideline you can follow is this: If your comment isn't something you would want on your page, or isn't one you would want directed at you, don't post it.

ALSO!

If you send me a message and I don't respond, it isn't because I haven't read the message or that I deleted it without even looking. I often check my messages at work but I can't actually reply to them until I get home. And by then I've forgotten. :S

Cheers!

I know I’m just another drop of water in the sea at this point but I hope you’re doing alright. Like everyone else I hope to see more Mente Materia and Nightmare in the future but if you never come back let me just say it’s been a privilege getting to read what we’ve already gotten. It’s such a great work of art and has inspired and entertained so many of us. I wish nothing but the best for you. Take care. :twilightsmile:

I know it’s been half a year since you’ve been on this site… but if you do come back, I’m still around, ready to help edit and proofread once more! :twilightsmile:

Hope you're well.

I just got my friends to read Stardust, who are notably non-bronies and not necessarily even XCOM fans, and they enjoyed it very much.

I hope you're well, and while I absolutely understand stepping away or moving on from this niche hobby of writing free XCOM x MLP fanfiction after so many years, especially in the current world, if you were to return to Mente Materia, let me say that I'd love to support you financially. I'd happily throw $100/month to an Arad Patreon in a heart beat at the prospect of fics returning, even just a few thousand words a month haha... And I'm sure others feel the same way.

I'd love to see Mente Materia be completed, but I would ultimately accept if this is a hobby you ultimately just want to move on from and leave behind. I wish you the best in all your endeavors regardless,
