My deepest apologies. My statement still stands of course, but it is no
longer aimed at you. *bow* When you wrote "real or unreal," I thought you
might have meant "reality" (RL) and fiction. Obviously, you did not.
Once again, I apologize for the misunderstanding on my part.

Yeah, that's what it stands for. And yes, I agree completely in this

Sure, that's what fanfics are, after all. OTOH, a person should know
better than to bring what their imagination conceived directly against an
established fact in an argument. It's simply a matter of validity. In
that case there is a definite "right" and "wrong," and the person who is
presenting the fact rather than his own interpretation is correct...end of
No. I was just using examples. People have tried, you know. ^_^

You'd be surprised at the number of people who try to argue against

urk. sorry. I wasn't specifically using you. I mean, I was writing in
second person, but it was just to prove a point. The "you" didn't
actually mean you in specific. It was a general "you." It was merely an
argument against fighting against established fact because I thought you
were suggesting that those facts were not necessarily the "truth" behind
the series. Basically I thought you were suggesting that a person's
interpretation that could contradict with an established fact was as valid
as an established fact within a fictional world. That is simply not the
case. However, you didn't mean that, so, I'm sorry for
my misunderstanding. ok? ^_^
