    Oh, I see. I've never heard that term before. And what the heck does idiosyncratic mean? You use too many words I've never heard of. ._.

    Stellar Haze: There is no right way. There are all sorts of differing opinions expressed in tutorials all over the internet, many of which are entertaining to read.

    Kello: idiosyncratic means a characteristic is particular to an individual.

    There are guides to everything. Sadly, guides are as subjective as anything else. Ten people do the same thing in twenty different ways.

    @unrepentantAuthor; idiosyncratic often refers to something not only particular to a certain individual, but also peculiar and uncommon.
    "People like you and me overcame the Neanderthals. People like you and me overcame the Ice Age"

    "You can hold [the brain] in the palm of your hands - and it can contemplate the vastness of interstellar space"

    "Along some paths of cosmic discovery there are times when, at least for now, one must be content to love the questions themselves"

    It's like an expanded Rule 34. Guides for everything. Think about it.

    On the topic of lemons; I've never written any. I think I might try it. None of you would ever get to see it of course, I'd be far too embarrassed. xD

    Embarrassment, pff. I threw such emotion away years ago. Which helped when I wrote a friend of mine a grape fic for her birthday last year :")

    It's more explicit and hardcore than lemon.
