A/N: Before we begin, I just wanted to warn all my viewers and followers who have accounts on here: there's a newly-registered account on this website that has been attempting to impersonate me for a few days now. Right now, they're going by the name of "A TheCartoonFanatic01", but they have previously gone by "The Real TheCartoonFanatic01", and who knows if they plan on changing the username yet again. I'll monitor the account profile for further updates.
Anyway, this user has been registered since May 16 of this year, and as far as I know, they've left trolling and accusatory reviews on two of my stories before I blocked them; I've reported both of their reviews as well. After that, it came to my attention today that this user reviewed two "Phineas and Ferb" stories under that username, unnecessarily bashing their stories and referring them to "Evil Phineas", claiming it is better than theirs. I don't know if they've reviewed any other stories like this or done anything else, or if they're in the process of doing anything else.
But sadly, I'm already feeling the consequences of this. One of the authors targeted by these terrible reviews has already confused me with the impersonator and sent me a PM because of it. I just sent them a response in which I explained the situation to them, told them what to do to get the impersonator off of their back, and apologized for them being caught up in the situation. In addition, I PMed the other author to inform them of the situation as well, and I have reported both offending reviews.
I STRONGLY urge you all to be on the lookout for this person. If you see or receive a review or a PM from someone with my username in theirs, a review or a PM that contains any sort of harassment, unusual accusations against me, strange behavior, or even just plain awful writing in general, I need you all to REPORT THEM. What they are doing right now is absolutely uncalled for and nothing less than the behavior of an immature troll.
The funny thing is that I've had experiences with this person before they chose to set up that account. They used to be an unsigned reviewer active in the Marvel fandom, who thinks they're some kind of gatekeeper, and therefore, they have been VERY critical and nitpicky with how I'm writing another one of my stories. Ever since I began deleting their reviews through the site's review moderator function, they've been having an absolutely hilarious fit and trying to harass me here and at Archive Of Our Own, even though I've been deleting their reviews at every turn before they even become publicly visible. Unfortunately, they've decided to stoop to an even lower point by impersonating me and doing God knows what at this point.
So yeah, long story short, an entitled troll and gatekeeper is mad that I'm not writing a story the way they expect me to, and that I'm not giving them the time of day; they've been acting out on it by attempting to impersonate me; and I need you to report ANY suspicious activity that you see from an account or accounts featuring my username in theirs.
Alright, that should be all at this point! On with this long-awaited chapter. ENJOY!
P.S.: Due to the ever-worsening situation regarding the coronavirus outbreak, I'm going to have to remind you all about the basic steps you should take if you want to stay healthy, courtesy of my university's reminder emails:
-Wash hands often with soap and water for 20-30 seconds at a time, and/or use hand sanitizer
-Avoid close contact with people who are sick
-Keep your hands away from nose, eyes, and mouth (I can't imagine how difficult this part is probably going to be)
-Eat well, get adequate rest, and exercise regularly
-Get a flu shot if you haven't already and are able to
-Stay informed on the COVID-19 vaccines and get shots if you're able to
And if you ARE sick (I hope you get better if you are), please be a good sport and save other folks the trouble of getting sick. You can do this by:
-Covering your mouth and nose with your sleeve, elbow, or a tissue whenever you sneeze or cough
-Not sharing food and drinks with others
-Avoiding touching your mouth, nose, and eyes (Again, I understand this is probably going to be difficult)
-Avoiding close contact with others
-Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and objects
-Staying at home if you're unwell (PRIORITY NUMBER ONE!)
-Staying calm and keeping yourself well-informed (My personal advice)
If you already know this, then great! If you didn't know any of this beforehand, please keep that information in mind as we all go through this trying time. It's a realm of unknowns at this point, and I wish myself and all of humanity well.
In a house in an unknown neighborhood, a teenage girl was walking up to the front door, a couple of bags in her right hand, an oblong case in her left hand, and several blueprints and other papers tucked under her shoulders. Clearing her throat, she pushed her elbow against a doorbell on the wall. Hearing the ringing reverberate around the house's interior, the girl tapped her foot patiently, waiting for the house's resident to respond. After a few seconds, the door opened to reveal a middle-aged man wearing a white T-shirt and brown shorts. He smiled at her.
"You got the stuff?" he asked.
"Yep," the girl replied, lifting the bags so the man can get them. "All here. The scroll-" She gave a bag to the man. "-the sword-" She handed over the sword. "-the amulet-" She gave a second bag to the man. "-and the blueprints for the machine you requested, plus instructions." She gave the blueprints and papers. "I still think that that sword is an antique, not the real thing. I doubt something from the medieval ages like that can survive for so long, still intact-"
"I think it would, Rissa," replied the man quickly, receiving the items. He examined them for a moment, then looked up into the sky and sighed. The girl raised an eyebrow.
"Something wrong, Dad?" she asked.
The man was silent for a moment, then he replied, "I have this odd feeling about something."
"...I don't know..."
Original A/N: Let's see if you can guess who the two mystery people are.
Yep, a really quick chappie, but I hope this increases your interests.
Before I get onto the reviews, I wanna announce that me and my family have planned out a Memorial Day weekend vacation to Los Angeles. I don't know how long we're actually gonna be gone; I've got relatives living there, and my parents like to stick with relatives for a while. So be patient if I don't update in a while.
Now, onto the reviews:
Fanathe...loser? [You're right there's more! :D]
Stinkfly3 [You've got that right. And thanks for responding to my decision over "Midsummer".]
NoShameHere [I knew you wouldn't. And that's what makes it fun. *cackles evilly*]
speedman12 (unsigned reviewer) [Thanks for your response over "Midsummer".]
Jennythe3 (unsigned reviewer) [We'll see about that...]
Person X (unsigned reviewer) [Thanks.]

Well, hope you enjoyed this quick chapter, and I hope even more that you're confused and searching for answers. TheCartoonFanatic01 is out. PEACE!
New A/N: Wow. This was the shortest chapter that I've ever seen myself write. XD
Well, thanks to this chapter's...unique length, there's really not much for me to talk about, other than the fact that this is getting pretty strange. Let's see what happens next.
I'd like to thank the following for reviewing:
-Gamelover41592: Thanks! Yeah, that was indeed heartbreaking.
-War (guest reviewer):
1) I'll get back onto "Fate/Rule Zero" when I have the time. I keep rereading it and liking what I've got for it so far. I just need to find the perfect time and opportunity to resume work on it.
2) No, this rewrite is going to diverge from the original even further down the road. I don't remember all the details, but I do remember things generally getting stranger and crazier as we go along.
Well, hope you enjoyed this chapter! TheCartoonFanatic01 is out. PEACE!
