Petty struggled and wheezed his way up the slope. It had been a long and hard, and above all sad day at his work and so it was, with great relief he saw the sign for Forumshire rearing up on the roadside verge before him. Soon he would be home and could rest and share some banter and discussion with the other citizens and forget his troubles.

Just as he passed by the sign and entered Forumshire his pocket palantir beeped and he took it out, it was a message directing him to a rather amusing and well made video celebrating Petty's beloved Who. He watched it smiling and then thought it was just the thought of thing others in Forumshire might like and decided that rather go straight home he would first stop by the Who fan club in Forumshire and leave the palantir there for all to see.

Meanwhile, in the depths of Forumshire, in the new Tower of Admin that had been built on the side of the Ambassadorial building of Dark Mistress Amarie, Amarie herself was sitting at her expansive desk, various folders of papers and palantir screens were laid out before them and she was studying them intently but with an air of boredom.

Eldo sat in a chair opposite her and Odo, who just liked to be nosey was also present and Blue, who was going through the legal documents for Amamrie and was slumped in a chair surrounded by paperwork and stress.

“Gosh I am bored, “Amarie said out loud, but just then one of her palantir beeped, “Aha!” she cried with a grin, “I've been waiting for this.”

“What is it?” Eldo enquired.

“Petty,” Amarie replied, “that annoying drunken Scotshobbit has posted a palanir video to the Who thread, ”lets have some fun,” she said typing into a keyboard on her desk.

“What are you doing?” Odo enquired, “I do hope its respectable.”

“Not at alkl,” Amamrie replied still grinning, “I've responded to his video.”

“Did you say something nice about it?” Odo asked innocently.

Amarie burst out laughing,”Eru no! I haven't even bothered watching it. No, instead I've ignored all the current debates about the new showrunner, the new companion, the fact there is only a xmas special this year or all the other things under discussion.”

“So what have you put?” Eldo asked curious now.

“Oh I dragged up something someone else said days ago on a completely different conversation and reposted it.”

“Why?” Odo enquired with a puzzled frown.

“Because its negative about Who, and I've added that it probably meant the whole thing not one story.”

“Have you actually seen the whole thing?” Odo enquired again.

Amarie laughed heartily, “Certainly not, I've watched half of one story, but I am still going to imply the whole lot was rubbish and that it was as hated as it was liked equally.”

Odo continued to frown, “I still do not see why?”

“Because it will annoy Petty something awful, what other purpose could putting such a post up have? Its not like I am reopening a discussion, or adding to one, or starting a new one or responding to his video. I am just finding stuff that will wind him up,” Amarie smiled sweetly back, sending the message.


Petty, having recovered somewhat from his days work, or at least temporarily forgotten it, in the Duck n' Muck weaved his way from the pub and alone to Needlehole to see if others in Forumshire had enjoyed the video as much as he had.

But instead what he found was Amaries message.



A few moments later the palantir beeped again and Amarie laughed, the others crowded round her palantir, “he is annoyed!” she said in triumphant tones,” he is defending his position by pointing out I haven't seen any of the series.”

“A fair point surely?” Odo offered but was silenced with a frown from Amarie, Eldo and Blue, “well, you haven't...”

“Oh,” Blue said pointing at the screen, “now he is saying the series was overwhelmingly well received by critics and fans alike. Can I accuse him of using popularism to defend it?”

“But he clearly isn't,” Odo pointed out the obvious, “he is merely highlighting the error in Amaries statement that it was equally disliked as liked.”

“I think,” Amarie said slowly, “that you are still missing the point Odo.”

Blue typed quickly at the keyboard, “that should annoy him.”

And it seemingly did as the palantir beeped again to Pettys response.

“I'll take this one, “Eldo chipped in reading Petty's reply.

“What are you going to do?” Amarie asked.

“I am going to accuse him of being aggressive and that it makes me uncomfortable to read.”

“Oh that will be funny,” Amarie.

“And then,” Eldo added with some relish and a grin, “I am going to accuse him treating Pj the same way others do Moffat with personal attacks.”

“Um,” Odo interjected again with a raised hand, “but he has quite clearly stated his position on PJ as a person many, many times in Forumshire, we all know his position on PJ the person. By Eru I must have read it at least half a dozen times in the past five years.”

“I think you are still missing the point Odo,” Amarie admonished.

“I am not sure I am missing it,” Odo replied with a forlorn look, “so much as I would rather not arrive at it.”

“There we are,” Eldo said as he sent his message, “I included a really offensive picture of him being laughed at for his argument- that should add insult to injury!”

And indeed it seemed to as the palantir beeped again and they all read it before falling about laughing.

Am,rie slapped the desk with her hand in her mirth, “Oh he has really exploded this time!” she cried between the tears.

“I knew that would do it,” Eldo managed between gulps of air and laughter.

Odo stared at them. He had a bad feeling in his waters. He turned and stared out the window which overlooked Needlehole and beyond, the fields of Dave's Farm and the tree under which Petty's buckie barrel distantly sat.

There was a knock at the door an Figg entered, “Whatcha” she said, “what's so funny?”

Amarie pointed at the screen still gasping for air, “we've been winding up Petty again,” she finally said.

“Aw, without me,” Figg replied annoyed.

Odo squinted into the distance, and at a thin but growing plume of smoke, “I hate to interrupt but where is Petty now?”

Amarie tried to gather herself in and flicked between several palantir screens, “Oh,” she laughed again as the others huddled round to see, “this is too rich. He is burning his barrel down.” And they all exploded again in mirth.

“Yes,” Odo said slowly, thoughtfully and worriedly stroking his chin with one hand, “he is isn't he.”

Figg read the parchment nailed to the noticeboard outside the town Lockholes.
She rolled her eyes.
It was a yellowed and dog-eared 'Wanted' poster banged up in haste, and already somebody had drawn a comedy moustache on the smug leering face in the picture.
'Wanted for crimes against storytelling and ignoring his ASBO, (anti-social bullshit order) it said in big red letters. If you see this man on your thread take him with a pinch of salt, or better, pour salt on him and watch him explode. 'BEWARE THE MOFFAT' members of the public are advised not to approach this man as he creates bad feeling and hurt sensibilities, if found call the appropriate authorities.'
Figg new the Moffat creature of old, he had created chaos in his wake, upset and rumour of his coming had spread throughout the land of Forumshire. Terrible tales were told. But this time he had really spread a putrid pall over the land. Something must be done!
Rumour of war..the sound of drums..boom boom boom! oh woe! oh woe! n all that jazz.
The battle ground was spread out over two hills, on one side the 'Defenders of the Middle Ground' and on the opposing hill the 'Defenders of the Anti-Moffat'.
The DoAM were up in arms, who had verydared to defile their Master!, He Who Cannot Be Criticised',
although secretly they had a few niggling doubts anyone who dared a peep over the barricades immediately had their heads cut off. so they didn't.
On the other side the stalwart middle grounders held their territory in the face of insurmountable Youtube barrel bombs and Statistics flew through the air in deadly hails.
Figg watched from the town, late for the party she ground her teeth in frustration.
She hoped that the Moffat could be exiled forever and that peace could reign at last. But this final battle was a bloody one, as most final battles usually are. With the Moffat exiled or squished into pulp (the more satisfactory outcome) the warring factions could limp to the negotiating table with heads held high and a promise not to be silly billies forever and ever.

Well, there was one person in the middle of all this who kept a neutral standing ground & was scratching the nits that roamed freely in her dreadlocky hair as she read the Wanted Poster. She also had her ideas & tho she didnt have the latest 4G pocket palantir knew full well how this would go. " Cor, fuck, is this all they ever do is argue ? " she scratched again, "Bollocks to this, Im off to get a healing spell & if that dont work IL bang their bloody heads together !". Lifting up her skirts just enough to show off her Vivienne Eastwoods enviromentally vegan friendly mock Tudor lace up boots she skipped across Lower Rushock Bog & into her Comfy cavern & slammed the door. Using a sack barrow to move her mahoooosive Grimoire, she fumbled thru the creaky finger marked pages " Good gawd " she sighed " How many fooking spells are there !, IL be here all day !" The dog yawned by the fire & looked at her in what she decided was compassion, the cats couldnt give a fuck !

Oh for the love of everything cute, grow the fuck up. I was going to be diplomatic about it, but I honestly see no point as none of you are. We are not discussing life and death issues it's not a big deal. No one will die if they dissagre with me, so stop taking everything so personal. I don't know about all of you but I am sick and tired of this who discussion that has been going on for four years and that somehow trickles down everywhere else here!! Nobody fucking cares anymore what you guys think of moffat and etc. I don't! You will never agree, get over it, deal with it and move on. You guys are FUCKING DANCING JENGA ON MY NERVES!  Grow the fuck up.. Jesus. Both of you.

Had a suspicion Petty had other things on his mind and this is clearly not all about Who. Honestly, reading back through the Who thread and being more conscious now of what transpired there, I can see why Petty is feeling aggrieved. Nonetheless, I can also see that he gave as good as he got there for awhile and I'm sure not everyone can claim perfect innocence in this dreadful stoush. Misunderstandings clearly occurred on both sides. And, of course, opinions differed too, which is always the case on the Who thread - and everywhere else in Forumshire. Still, I had a feeling Petty's incredibly strong reactions this time had more to do with preoccupations outside Forumshire, not within. So, henceforth, I think taking a calm approach is best. Petty's dose of catharsis has given others their chance to express some of their own, so, pleasant or not, at least now we have got things off our chest and maybe we move on.

 I seem to remember this strong and angry and personalised arguments occurring over at Bree a bit too often, and other forums have the same problem. It wasn't nice there and it's not nice here. But it has happened here now and then - I'm not talking about feisty debates - I'm talking about arguments of this depth of feeling. It's sometimes a part of forum life. But in the past we have licked our wounds, found a bit of perspective, and remembered (at last) that, yes, friends can have pretty horrible fights, but afterwards we remember we are friends. This is what generally occurs in Forumshire.

Folk feel assaulted here, but I don't think anyone started out to do that to each other. It's happened though and it's time to forgive if not forget and smell the roses again. 

By the way, I do see Petty - and I suspected something outside Forumshire might have been the root cause, and having done some work in age care, I can think of plenty of reasons why a person could be in a very fragile mood! - as having reacted the most strongly during this last kerfuffle, but if any blame for what has happened is to be apportioned, I think it should be spread evenly. 

In my own circumstances, family have had some pretty nasty blow ups, but things have calmed down and relationships returned largely to normal. I suspect that will be the case here. Fingers crossed.

I think I've waffled a bit. Hopefully you guys have taken what I've said in the spirit I intended. 

And if any one needs bandages, I am in charge of the Forumshire First Aid Kit. 

(Oh yes, poor old Julia is innocent in all this, I feel I need to say that. Go figure! Laughing)

For the record, I won't be storming off. Where would I go? Shocked

Yes, you took an Orwellian approach to dramas when you found out was happening, but got smacked on the nose for it! I actually thought you were being generous and constructive by trying to take some of the sting out of things for all parties by making your amusing comment. I do hope Petty comes to realise that - but he can be stubborn (apparently) Very Happy Though part of me suspects you might have genuinely been upset you weren't there in the middle of the fist fight! Laughing
