Read Racconto here:

One other thing that I forgot to note, but on a positive end this time: I really want to commend kcspice for having an actually engaging and enjoyable flashback information dump during Salazar the dragon's explanation. That was extremely refreshing and well-written. Good job.

Next up: The Minimalistic Tales: Super Mario by Nirvana star

Hey, Mine's next.
Lookin' forward to it.

In case I wasn't clear when I made this request, I wanted you to do the prologue and the pre-prologue, ignore chapter 1 for now.

Ooh, I suggested that Minimalistic Mario gets reviewed here. It'll prolly get a very high score.

On the subject of this comic, the GUN part makes sense later. You'd have to see Book 3 for that, though.

The Koala is actually a Sonic sprite edit.

A very GOOD one I might add.

Whoops Sorry I didn't see this sooner
Thanks for the review! I'll change some things that you mentioned

@MAWIO876: While that is true, remember that just because something can be made fun of doesn't mean you should make fun of it. I mean, look at John Cena. Would you mock him to his face?

@ForestFire: Well at that point he knows it's true so I mean he'd probably be a good sport about it... I have no Ill will against people with tourrettes... But it's kinda like how we as people get so offended that someone says somthing... We just overreact.. equal opportunity bashing should be fair game for anyone as long as it's done in good spirit... I'm not trying to start a flame or anything nor would I ever go out of my way to hurtfully make fun of other people I'm just saying people shouldn't be over sensitive...

Basic point: The tourrettes joke shouldn't offend because it's not going out of its way to hurt people with that syndrome... Idk people will always disagree and if u do that's totally fine :)

I didn't know much about the syndrome myself until I learned about it, and figured out its more serious than I thought. It wasn't that funny of a joke to begin with and I'm sorry for taking it so lightly
Didn't mean to offend anyone

@MAWIO876: There's a time and a place for everything, but some things haven't necessarily had their time yet. We can joke about crippling or hurtful things from the past without much blowback because they just ARE in the past, but when jokes get made about current issues that are people are more aware of, it can be rather hurtful for some.

In this particular instance, while it's also a joke made in poor taste, it also completely gets the concept of Tourette's Syndrome wrong in what it actually is, which also makes whatever joke that could've been there fall flat on its face.

I would say this is less of an issue of me being oversensitive (especially since at one point in my life, I was (incorrectly) momentarily diagnosed with Tourette's and went through a treatment for it, it was not a pleasant experience) and more of an issue of momentary lack of empathy.

@Ultizeta: I get the reasoning, and I'm sympathetic for your diagnosis... And yes I do agree the joke was made not in correct context... I guess my subjective view doesn't really apply to this scenario... My my whole viewpoint is that people shouldn't be oversensitive... My grandma for instance had breast cancer and now see's it as something that she can laugh about.... Not in the sake of the disease itself being funny which it's not... But more or less the experience she had... She jokes about how it didn't kill her and how she beat it in the end which is something I truly admire.... For everything that's a serious subject and just not really nice to make fun of, I tend to want to see a lighter side of it because in my book laughter is probably one of the best things we can feel.... And I think that anyone who can see a bright side to anything is frieken awesome! Again apologies for trying to sound as if Tourettes itself is funny, that's not what I intended :)

@MAWIO876: The difference between your scenario with your grandmother, which is more than acceptable, is that it's joking about *her* personal experience that ended up well. Making light of things is often how people tend to cope, but it does have its own place. Making a joke about somebody else's breast cancer experience would not be very good if, say, they were about to die from it or were horribly traumatized by it. Peoples' mentalities and experiences are very different, but for serious situations like this, it's usually more consistently negative without the desire to make it positive. In addition, the Tourette's joke here doesn't make light of any particular experience but instead focuses on the syndrome itself.

In short, I agree with the sentiment that there are instances that jokes can be made about more serious subjects, but they need to be well-thought-out and appropriate to the situation. Often, jokes of this nature just really are not, and this particular joke that started this discussion was among them.

@Ultizeta: Yeah I'm glad you take the message I was trying to get across!

In conclusion: There is a fine line between John Cena and Tourette's. (Yet another comment that seems stupid without context yet even dumber with context.)
