Oh- and thanks to purrsia's recent struggles vs. lame-i-tude, I've got the inspiration needed to crank out the last bit of Ronixis MiSTing that I still don't have done yet. Just a little bit more of Part Six and I'll be through with it AT LAAAAST!

For those of you who have no goddamn clue what I'm talking about,

Okay. Soooo, a while back I was actively part of TCATGR, an online ThunderCats community that kept track of show-specific memorabilia, shared fanfic, and the like. One day, an asshat named Ronixis came along and asked the community to send him funds. You see, he'd written a script for a new TCats series, one that was so fresh and so original that it would revive what he thought to be a dying American animation industry. And he didn't have the money required to get this script submitted and read, so could we help?

Well, there was no shortage of people willing to help, but they wanted to read the script first before they decided to contribute funds. Sounds reasonable, right? Well, at first Ronixis refused, scared that someone would run away with his groundshaking work. But, after it became clear that no one was going to send him money without getting a look at the script first, he yielded somewhat and released three scenes' worth.

And, by God, they were horrible.

If you want an idea of how horrible, click here- I wrote a MiSTing for these three parts shortly thereafter, if only to get the bad taste out of my head. In short, the characterization was way off, new villains (obvious ripoffs of characters from Darkstalkers- he didn't even bother to change the names of the characters in some cases!) had been inserted... ugh, he broke just about every rule of decency imaginable.

And so, the TCATGR explained that, because none of us liked this new script, we weren't going to support it financially. They provided constructive criticisms in an honest effort to be of help, which Ronixis not only ignored, but angrily stormed against. He was at last moved to release the whole script, thinking that maybe it was bad because those three parts had been out of context.

And my friends, such is how the worst script ever written was unleashed upon a band of innocent fans.

The script was in the TCATGR's archives for only a short while before Ronixis stole it back away. But a very astute fellow named Cassius saved a copy of it, which he passed along to both purrsia and myself. Purrsia finished her MiSTing ages ago, hehe, and it's at her site (http://www.purrsiathunder.net/). Instead of Mike and the 'bots, she used TCATGR and TCats characters in the theater, and it's some good shit. I'm so close to being done with mine (which does torture MoTB) that it's not even funny. I've already suffered through 98% of it, I might as well go all the way!

I never watched Thundercats, so I have no personal attachment, but on their behalf I will chop Roxinis into matchsticks suitable for stirfrying.

Hehe! If you think the script's bad, you should listen to some of the rants he's placed on his website. First off, he sounds like a deranged Kermit. Second, nothing he says makes any damn sense. It's one forty-five minute stream of incoherence after another!

And if you're ever curious about TCats, I probably have tapes lying around. Mind you, it can be really goofy and cringe-inducing at times, but I have fond childhood memories of it. ;)

Ah, ronnie. I can't wait for your MST, miusheri...you do masterful work in that arena >:)

I would like to note that I've moved my mst zone so that it's not longer on my tcats site. It can be found here, however.

And more specifically the ronnie script MST is here

More fun with ron can be located on the same page here
- it's the response I had to his using a good portion of one radio program of his railing against me specifically. I'm speshul!1! Complete with stfu pics a-plenty.

Also, don't forget his shortfalls at Winghaven, which carried over onto Cheezey's Board here:

And finally, I preserved his old shoutbox type thing on my LJ, in which he tried to "out smart" us on the script thing by saying it was a fake only to find himself looking at legal action for trying to syphon money out of us for a product that never existed. FUN! Some of the winghaven stuff is preserved there as well.

One consolation, I guess, is that he's so "endeared" himself to more than one toon fandom, so tcats isn't unique. Although I believe we beat the snot out of him virtually more than anyone ever had or has to date lol! We in the tcats fandom don't suffer wankers quietly, what can I say?
Enjoy. If that's even possible.

Aha- thank you muchly! lol, I'd almost forgotten about the "O yea? Well that isn't the real script losserz!!!1!1!" thing! When people called him on potential fraud activity, that was the closest I'd ever seen anyone come to pissing themselves over the Internet.

Sorry I provided the incorrect link, but I'm happy to be corrected- and of course, I still really dig the TCats site! You have a real talent for web design!
