    Ballpoint. Don't dry out, easy to write with, come in as many variations as you care to name. Range from cheap to really nice ones.

    Ballpoints rule

    My handwriting goes all italic and French style when I use a fountain pen. But ballpoints are so much easier. I love those Z-Grip ones.

    A fountain pen with yellow ink. Nothing says "I am a fundamentally better person than you" than a fountain pen with coloured ink, and using a colour that neither parker or Waterman makes shows that I've put in the extra effort, that I am the best of the best.

    That said, I think the yellow ink has screwed up my pen

    Fountain: I love my LAMY. :coma:

    I use black biros at school, because they're cheap and faster to write with. LAMY cartridges cost a fortune.

    Fountain pen. To me, buying one is like adopting a child- they can be temperamental, they come in all shapes and sizes, they're with you for life, and though they may be difficult to get used to at first, they're worth it in the long run.

    The one I most frequently use is a trusty maroon Parker, given to my mother on her 21st birthday- and it's still going strong! I love that in the same pen you can use different inks, and that you can even vary what nib you're using depending on whether you want to write in italics or in any other particular style. Beautiful things.

    Fountain pen - it's the only one that doesn't make a sound and feeling that winds me up and sets me on edge.
