      Hey, I've been following WTR sporadically for years and I gotta say I admire your dedication.

      I'm doing a reread and I forgot how much I love the team bonding and shenanigans from the beginning. I also forgot how much things hit harder in the beginning for Oh El paragon, emotionally, and that kinda makes me sad. He's gone down another path and the progression of change is subtle.

      Keep up the good work!

        Although now that I think about it, perhaps a green rings effectiveness would drop off as it neared zero charge, for a rookie at least.

        It's possible their fear of running out of power would interfere with their will, but that would be a user issue, not the ring itself. Hopefully that would be one of the things drummed out of them during basic training.

      Hey bro, I started reading your story With This Ring a few days ago and have been having a blast getting through it, I especially like the chapters featuring the renegade; he seems like a total pimp and I like the diverging storyline.

      I just got past the chapter where Paul upgrades Superboy with the Danner Formula, I wanted to ask if Paul upgraded himself with it as well?

      Hey, I'm a big fan, and ended up creating a simple python bot to figure out how many words your story is, because I couldn't find a clear word count. I can give you think link if you're interested.

      Also, I think I might have figured out Paul's surname. Should I message you to confirm, and if so, how? I'm assuming there's some story-related reason you want it kept secret.

      Hi, I'm a fan of With This Ring, and it took me way too long to figure out why. By any chance, are you and/or any of the other characters in the story familiar with the Japanese TV show "Kamen Rider OOO"?

      The show aired 5 September 2010 to 28 August 2011.

        Thinking about it a bit more, the villains in Kamen Rider OOO sort of work by attaching Anti-Orange rings to their victims, because they consume that specific emotional energy to survive. That works fine (well, limited casualties) until they target someone whose core desire is to end all life.

        The Japanese term "yokubou" is fairly common as well. It's sort of a mix or balance between greed and ambition.

        "Here, you've not only done so in literary form - yes, stories are subject to the rules beyond Rule 6 - you've also then followed it up with the quote that I've linked above."

        Whether it would have gotten him dinged or not is unknown to me. But considering how utterly sensitive they are all being about this....I'd say it might have been likely.
