I blame Sano for the fact that I am an English major. I will be firing my grammatically correct laser at both of you for even suggesting that any literary terms could be "useless", or calling the language confusing!
(Not really. English is a derp-tastic language. Very confusing. xD For every rule there are always exceptions... No wonder it sucks to learn as a second language!!!! As Sano pointed out, it's hard enough for those who speak it as a first language to get it right.... Also, I am female, lelia. XDDDDD)
