You're funnier than most of the rest

More specifically, I haven't studied writing or written myself enough to be able to make sense, but the best way I can describe it is that it seems to me like most Trek writers try for prose that is more or less invisible, writing that's not juvenile but just simple, without any distracting flights of verbiage. And that's pretty consistent. You and PAD like to play with the language a little more humorously, but Thorne is one of the only ones I've seen lately that really plays with the visceral, immediate imagery of scenes in interesting ways.

If that makes any sense at all.
