Indeed. Bad choice of words for my parts. I should say, "as good or bad,"
though I haven't found a fanfiction genius just yet some that are good
enough for publisihing, maybe even better than the original story, but none
that are "this will be remembered for all time."

Aw. We never told people that, though. Maybe we should have some of the
worst writers had no self-judgement and kept sending the same kind of tripe
over and over again. Though only one ever claimed we were making a mistake
by not taking in his poem: "You can't say that it's 'too wordy' when every
word is beautiful and needed..."

I am strangely Swedish? In what way is my Swedishness strange? Is there some
way to be un-strangely Swedish?
