The most rude comment

Despite being in the midst of a great war, I recieved a rather uncanny letter today by way of Lord Karagan. It read thus:
I can quite confidently state you've
got more talent than Stephanie Meyer. 'Tis true, and as crap as she is, that's
more than a large proportion of FFnet can say.
As for hunting for good things to say about the fic: I can't say I like
fantasy novels of the generic sub-Tolkien kind, and I can't say I like
unoriginal romance. If your mushy male lover - who is a bard - writes a poem,
it should at least have a metrical structure. Or does Bard not in fact mean
poet in the novels? In any case, your choice of genre and fandom didn't give
me any inclination to like your writing, I'm afraid.
I find myself baffled. I. Dernhil of Gent, am being compared to the worst writers in Edil-Amarandh? What nonesense is this? Am I to believe my writing is truly horrible? Perhaps I should not have survived after all, if such things are going to be said...
