Wow I can't believe I just risked ruining the Parker Sonnet(Gen 1 Laque Firedance) that my mom gave me, which also happens to be my first ever fountain pen. I saw that the tines were misaligned and bent the lower one, over did it 2 times(first time adjusting a nib, and it was on a pen with actual sentimental value, I know I'm stupid), had to bend it the other way around, got about 8 heart attacks, almost died of cardiac arrest, and finally did it, here are the pics.

Hi! I'm a new member of the Fountain Pen Network! Nice to meet you all! Just found out that the Sonnet my mom gave me is a First Generation one, a Laque Firedance. But for some reason I have to give extra pressure for it to write without skipping, unlike other pens I own, which write with their own weight. Could it be Baby's Bottom? If so, would they fix it for me at a Parker Store? Thanks and have a great day FPN!
