Hey there. I hope you still remember me from the time I illustrated your Inventor. Maybe you'd like me to illustrate this too? :D

I love the "air" / "oxy" in the title.  It makes me so happy.  :heart:  (and of course there's "empty" / "full" and "airhead" / "moron".  The juxtapositions alone make this a winner.  =D)

Well, I can't really take credit for the title: I think that airhead/oxymoron wordplay has been around for a while ^^" It does fit in nicely with my story though ^^ (Fairly certain the story's mine :P)

Heh, this is cute and punny. I like! ^_^ The "oxymoron" part having two meanings is a nice touch.

Cute and punny does rather describe most of my work :D And I really wish I'd come up with the oxymoron pun, but I think I've heard it somewhere and it's lodged in my brain ^^"

Ahahaha, so very true! And the less that's in there, the more they talk. (also the louder - because there's more resonator space)

Yes, that's very true too :giggle:

I seem to have spent my life being told what to do by people who have no self-awareness or intellectual curiosity but are absolutely sure they're always right ^^" (Bitter? Me? ^^)

Neil Gaiman has this interesting writing advice - listen to people who tell you there's something wrong in your writing but aren't sure what. Ignore those who point out the exact issue and make suggestions as to how to change it. I guess life works similarly. Either way, I'm not fully agreeing with that statement, but it's an interesting point of view to play little mind games with. (Yay! Mindsweeper!)

This is amazing! I never thought anyone would use an oxymoron for the paradox theme. Great job!

Thanks :D I think paradoxes and oxymorons are in a similar sort of area ^^ 

The main reason I mentioned "oxymoron" is because it's a pun on "airhead". (I've just Googled it and unfortunately I'm not the first person to notice this ^^" I'm guessing I must have heard it somewhere.) "Oxy" means "sharp" and "moron" means "stupid" - "oxymoron" is literally a contradiction in terms. "Oxy" is also used in "oxygen", so "oxymoron" could be translated as "oxygen fool" or... "airhead" :D (Yes, more than you needed to know, wasn't it? :giggle:)

Yeah, they are!

I didn't notice that! I'm too thick for your brilliant word play! :D 
I knew about 'Oxymoron' being an oxymoron. Just makes it more amazing.
(Hmm...yeah! But the more you know; the better.)

Oh, crikey, never even joke about you being "thick" :D You're such an intelligent person - I'm embarrassed to tell you how old I was when I found out "oxymoron" is an oxymoron ^_^
