Two liithp or not two liithp

Becauthe it ith an important quethtion... And I'm editing the first chapter of a longfic right now for posting in the near future, and trying to decide which way to go.

As a writer I typically think of dialect as "a little goes a long way" and I used to think writing it out was obnoxious, but by now other people's Homestuck fic has gotten into my head on a Pavlovian level and now I react to lisping as stupidly adorable/sexy, so I'm completely torn about this.

Please respond! And send your friends here! I'd like to get this show on the road as non-obnoxiously as possible!

Poll #1888297 Adorable Lii2piing A22hole2?

What do you prefer in Sollux fanfic?

I STRONGLY prefer when the author does not write out the lisp, or only uses it for emphasis.
11(30.6%)
I slightly prefer when the author does not write out the lisp, or only uses it for emphasis.
10(27.8%)
I'm OK with either way (or have another preference entirely)
6(16.7%)
I slightly prefer when the author writes out the lisp consistently.

Any additional comments?




ETA: Looks like even with a limited number of respondents I have enough replies to catch a clear trend, which is that most people prefer it not written out or written out only occasionally, and more importantly that preference is stronger than the preference the other way. So we're gonna stick with minimal lispage in the fic. Thanks, folks! :-) (You're more than welcome to go on replying to the poll if you want, if you'd like to have a larger sample going for the record.)
