I am liking the word "douchenozzle"...

I saw the word "douchenozzle" today and it just applies so well right now. Normally, I like to think that I have a pretty good handle on who I am, what my strengths and weaknesses are, and I'm pretty good at judging people's actions and discarding things that just aren't important or relevant. And then there's today.

I just posted "A Meeting of Minds" on dA today, and not too long after, I receive a message asking, "Do you take requests?" I've never had anyone ask me to write something for them, so it was very surprising. Of course, I only write for myself, and only ideas that really interest me, and my interests are very narrow (DW only, adventure, no romance), so I'm a poor choice for asking for a request. I wrote back and told the person as much, but said that he could ask. He sends me this synopsis of a story involving a cowgirl centaur, kicking ponies into space, a thief in a saloon, and explosive flatulence. I replied with something like "I only write DW, and anyway, it sounds like you've already written it," then deleted his messages.

What the bloody hell? I'm really pissed off. I can only think of two motives for sending me this shite. The first is the person really wanted this story written (which is possible, judging from the crap that he's written, in his dA gallery). If that's the case, don't you think he'd look at my profile and think, "Hey, this person only writes DW. Like, 98%. She probably isn't the person to ask." The second is that he was trolling me, and I think this is the probably the more likely scenario. And this just horks me off. I have enough problems with confidence in my writing; I don't need someone pretending to pay me a compliment and then just making fun of me. Not to mention, don't waste my bloody time!

I have a feeling more brownies are going to make the ultimate sacrifice to my wrath.
