Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!As some of you may know I was experiencing some technical difficulties with WordPress. Earlier this week I found myself unable to comment on other bloggers’s posts… So imagine my surprise when I discovered that all of my comments were being sent to you guy’s spam folders! I have since had the problem fixed, but I suggest you all check your spam folders regularly in case others are experiencing the same problem.
Okay now that I’m done with that, I actually have some good news! We finally heard back from the journal we sent our manuscript to… *drumroll* They want us to fix some things and resubmit… I know it sounds bad, but this is actually really good news and the comments they had were mostly positive. But, since I’m the first author on the paper, I’m responsible for bringing the paper up to snuff. So, what does that mean for you guys and the blog? Well, the paper takes priority, so if I go ghost you know why…

Here are the results for the previous poll, What topics should I write more about?:
There were a total of 19 votes in this poll, so thank you to everyone who voted! It seems like a majority of you want more Boys Love/Yaoi, with 11 votes. For those of you that voted for BL/Yaoi…you’ll be getting your wish sooner rather than later! But, I’m actually surprised that Otome/Otoge only received 4 votes, I thought more of you would have voted for that…

Here we are again at the end of another Recap Post, where I highlight four interesting posts from other bloggers that showed up on my Reader this past week…
Dear Authors: I’m Begging You To Stop Epiloguing– This post comes from Lady Saika over at Lady Geek Girl and Friends. This post takes a look at a recent trend that has some fans up in arms against even their favorite authors… epiloguing! This blogger covers the pitfalls of authors deciding to prolong their stories long after series has ended. This is an informative piece and a must read for anyone who has fallen prey to the sugary sweet world of epilogues!
Why Fan OTP Ships Upset Me– This post comes from Kausus over at Otaku Gamer Zone. Here’s another post about the tumultuous world fan shipping. This blogger looks at how some fan OTP ships can ruin the overall anime, manga, etc. experience for fans that aren’t in favor of a particular ship. This is a very honest and well written post and I highly recommend giving it a read if you have the chance!
My Terrible First Date Experience–This post comes from Kurosama238 over at Two Happy Cats. Time heals most wounds, in this post this blogger shares a personal tale of a first date gone wrong. This is a very personal and candid account of one of the worst first date experience ever. Despite the horrible situations recounted in the post, the author still manages to interject a few humorous remarks. I highly recommend reading this post!
Top 6 English Anime Openings– This post comes from NEETaku over at Just…My Two Cents. When I read this post, I was immediately hit by a wave of childhood nostalgia! Like the title says this blogger compiled a list of the best English Anime Openings. Each song on the list is a fun throw back to the bygone years of childhood and I highly recommend checking this post out if you have the chance!
