* despite boasting a considerable hatedome for some fairly legitimate reasons, the mortal instruments books by Cassandra Clare continues to remain my favorite YA series of all time. Malec,anyone?

* ''StarControl 2''. One of its most praised strengths is its [[IncrediblyLamePun stellar]] prose, full of humor and beautiful in style; it's like the Creator/CharlesDickens of video gaming. Each alien race you meet speaks in their own unique way. [[http://www.sa-matra.net/quotes/ See it all here]].

* Rika Nakase definitely must have had Steven Foster as an influence for writing {{Kanamemo}}, because the dialogue is no doubt the most clever dialogue I've heard in an anime comedy ''ever''. It feels exactly like watching an English dub, with some notable small slang uses in some scenes, already with the hilarious slapstick, and also the fact that she wrote the MusicalEpisode entirely by herself. She was no doubt like a Japanese LaurenFaust here.
* Naoki Urusawa. Having finished 20th Century Boys, I declare it to be one of the greatest works of fiction ever made (in my opinion, the greatest work of ficiton of the decade goes to Full Metal Alchemsit Brotherhood). It contains EVERYTHING that should make an enjoyable experience from great characters to an interesting world. The suspense is very good, a signature of Naoki Urasawa, the story itself is unique and something that nobody has seen the likes of before and everything flows so naturally and comes together so perfectly. It doesn't even contain a lot of motivational speeches which even good anime are guilty of using, like Manga/RurouniKenshin and Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion and yet, it says little and leaves such a huge impact. It is depressing but is also very idealistic; its both a deconstruction of shonen and a reconstruction in the end. In all, to say it is genius is an insult to the book itself. It makes ''Watchmen'' and ASongOfIceAndFire look like they were written by five-year olds.

* Chris Claremont's 1975-1991 run on ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' was full of spectacular stories and characters. His collaborations with artists John Byrne, Alan Davis, and Dave Cockrum were imaginative and fresh, and really codified UsefulNotes/{{the Bronze Age|OfComicBooks}} in my opinion.
* FrankMiller really got the DarkerAndEdgier {{Nineties Anti Hero}}es off the ground, and I love him for it. I'm basing several characters off of his interpretation of Franchise/{{Batman}} alone, and a villain off of his Joker. I'd just like to give him a huge ShoutOut here, because he's really magnificent at what he does.

* So much by VernianProcess but especially [[http://www.vernianprocess.com/http%3A/%252Fwww.vernianprocess.com/lyrics "Her Clockwork Heart"]].
* Relient K. Especially in their last 3 albums and their last EP. Their lyrics often have an incredibley poetic feel to them. Seriously, read the lyrics for [[http://www.songlyrics.com/relient-k/part-of-it-lyrics/ Part Of It]].
* Soundgarden. Maybe it gets lost amid the admittedly awesome rocking out, but their lyrics often have a fantastically clean and elegant structure, without sounding overly clever about it. "Mailman" is one of the greatest fuck-you poems of all time.

* The Decemberists. Good lord they are a magical band. Lush instrumentals, intelligent lyrics, and Colin Meloy's very pretty voice.

* You can hand PeterDavid [[XFactor any team of characters at all]], from the [[TheScrappy scrappiest]] to the [[EnsembleDarkhorse most underappreciated]], and he will come up with a way to make them work. He's just that versatile.

* RichardDawkins, especially in Unweaving the Rainbow. Say what you like about his religious views, but the man is an AMAZING writer.

* RevolutionaryGirlUtena. MindScrew symbolism aside, these are some of the most unforgettable, flawed, and interesting characters I've seen in an anime, and the ending left me breathless.

* PuellaMagiMadokaMagica just may be one of the best shows I've ever seen, and it all comes down to the writing. It sets you up to think it's going to be a traditional MagicalGirl anime, then it yanks the rug out from under you. And it keeps doing so for the rest of the show! The best part, though, is how it manages to walk the tricky tightrope of being a dark deconstruction of the sub-genre, while still maintaining a glimmer of hope, at least until the ending where it at least achieves a bittersweet ending, if not a genuinely happy one. It was the perfect capstone to a great series, and one of the most tightly crafted shows I've ever seen. And this is coming from a person who normally AVOIDS anime.

* I would like to praise the writing for ''{{Sanctuary}}'''s third season's third episode, "Bank Job." The dialogue is snappy, witty, clever, and colorful, and the episode is written as, for the most part, an ElevatorDrama, so they were able to save hugely on budget. More of this please.
