There is a sort of bizarre point to this post. I've fallen out of writing regularly so I've been reading random stories on the site to keep myself occupied. I've been rather odd since December 28th, 2009. Avenged fans know what I'm talking about. In fact, I couldn't bring myself to listen to anything Avenged until about, oh, yesterday. I listened to Nightmare and then just sat down and sobbed. It's almost bizarre how these stages of grief work. I've gone through denial, bargaining, anger and depression over and over again. I haven't really reached that final step though.
I'm currently on anger.
That one I surprisingly have had the least amount of times but I'm just so tired of this. People need to stop. I've thought for a long time that fanfiction is a work of art and I have in the past complained about the content, but there is a huge difference between writing bizarre things about someone when they are alive to laugh at the jokes and the bizarre plot.
I've seen a few stories where they made Jimmy gay or abusive and for the love of all that is Avenged Sevenfold, is there a reason for it? You're telling me that you couldn't respect Jimmy's memory just a little bit and use someone else? You couldn't have it be a fictional character? Oh and to add to your filth, you actually put 'dedicated to Jimmy' on it like that makes it okay.
Actually, it makes it worse.
If you want to remember Jimmy? That's fine. Remember him. Celebrate him. Show exactly how magnificent you know he was but don't under any circumstances turn him into something he never was and then claim you're doing it in his honor. Actually, you know what?
You can write it when Jimmy starts laughing again.
