The fact that posters here are given good critiques - all nicey, kittens and cupcakes comments - seems a bit off-putting.
Right, well, yeh. People are more than welcome to come along and say to me "hey, your Alassafic contribution would have been more funny if you'd done this!" But on the whole, it's tricky and moderately pointless to provide negative comments to somebody who's obviously just being silly, so the inclination is generally to play along with the joke (if you're aware of it). Okay, fine, you can all post "NOT FUNNY!" in response to my comedy if you like and I'll probably be so upset that I go and mod properly instead, but really... :)

As someone who has not been around these forums for that long, and had no previous knowledge of "Alassa" or Corvis' personality, I found the aforementioned Ends funny on my first read through. I thought it was fairly obvious that Corvis was parodying (at the very least) the "OMFG QUAKE 3 ROX!!!11!1" posting style and most probably a personality that he had built up through his posts on this forum. I also caught on pretty quickly (2nd line?) to the fact Alassafan was a parody of someone who thought that NPC was TEH ROXOR!!1!1.

The content of the posts was funny once you caught onto the generics of the parody, you didn't need to know the exact history of Corvis' posts to realise "O NO WHAT HAVE I DONE" said KESLEY then RAN OVER MORENA in his SUPER RAD DUNE BUGGY" might be a piss-take...

Also, when I saw the initial post about the "Bad Kelsey" fanfiction challenge, my first thought was that people were being challenged to come up with the worst fanfiction they could imagine.

So there's more than one way of interpreting the challenge.
