Someone tried to ‘win’ an ‘argument’ (that was really more of a civil discussion?) with me by citing this ‘C0DA’ thing…
So I looked it up…and I couldn’t even find a single reference to anything Elder Scrolls in it at all beyond using the ‘Era’ system.
It’s was never even announced by anyone at Bethesda or Zenimax to my knowledge… Plus, from what I read on a TES wiki…This “C0DA” thing is basically Fan Fiction!
So just for reference, I’m not going to debate with someone about what happens in the TES universe unless the information was written down in any of the games somewhere. If you’re wanting a serious discussion about what happens or speculation on what will happen in the TES ‘verse, that’s fine. Just…don’t go pulling Fanfiction on me as a ‘fact.’ And if I ever so much as *SEE* someone mention “C0DA” as a reason for something happening in the TES verse, I’m just going to dismiss anything they have to say on that subject.
I’m ALL FOR creative writing! But Fan Fiction is Fan Fiction. Even Dovah’s Mind and Calliope’s journal is *fan fiction.* I won’t go citing my own story line of “The Dovahkiin used a Pogo Hammer as his main weapon against the Ash Spawn on Solsthime” in any Historical argument because it’s *My* story, and not the Canon adventures that Bethesda wrote out that all future games will ultimately be based off of. You won’t see me claiming that “Xros Heart fused into Times Twelve to Giga Drill Break Quartzmon in the heart of space!” in any Digimon argument either, because THAT IS ALSO MY STORY. Not the canon adventures.
I won’t accept Fanfiction in a serious discussion unless the discussion in the first place is *ABOUT* the Fanfiction in question. If you’re going to bring Fanfiction into a discussion with me, when we were talking about canon stuff before…. Like I said, I’m just going to dismiss what you have to say because it’s not related to the original topic.
Sorry for the rant, but I felt like I needed to get this off my chest.
