I have four pieces of work due early this week, and have done barely any of it. The best solution is obviously to complete a meme.

Stolen from all over the place:

Pick your five all-time favourite pieces of fic, the ones which made you laugh or cry or kicked you in the guts, that became your personal canon, that inspired you to offer the author internets and first born sons, and tell us why you loved them. Any fandom, any pairing, any genre - the only requirement is they stood out from the crowd. Also, links or it didn't happen.

Just five??Collapse )


The final episode of season eight of Smallville is called Doomsday. This is not a good sign.

Writer's Block: Early Birds, Night Owls

Would you rather get up early or stay up late? Does your schedule fit your preference?

Oh, stay up late. I hate getting up early. Sadly, I have to do the latter and end up doing the former anyway, which makes for constant tiredness.

Some things:

1) When snow falls, Britain stops functioning. Anyone who doesn't drive is too distracted by the pretty expanses of white, and anyone who does sits around moping about the condition of the roads.

2) There is no heating in this house. I have about seventy-four layers on and I'm still bloody freezing.

3) Meme snagged from unfolded73

Ask me anything: all types of fannish opinions, good, bad, and ugly. I'm screening all comments so ask me anything fannish-related and I'll answer (in a separate post) with complete honesty.

Any tv show/anime/manga/book/movie that you're pretty sure I've mentioned in the past is fair game, as are thoughts on general themes and trends in fandom/fiction. Even lists of love/hated characters. Anything, even my thoughts on slash ships.

As said, comments are screened so you can ask whatever you want without being ~revealed.~ If you don't care about being revealed you can let me know.

Writer's Block: Spoilers Below the Cut

Have you ever ruined the ending or given away plot developments in a book, movie, or tv show by telling someone who hasn't seen or read it what happens? Has anyone ever done this to you?

I do this an awful lot, really. Last time was the other week when my Drama teacher engaged me in a conversation about Twilight and I told him (yes, him) I loathed it. He asked me if I thought the second book was better or worse than the first and, assuming he'd read it, I said "Well, better in some ways because the writer had the good sense to get rid of Edward for most of it -"

I would have gone on to say "But worse in others because Bella is even more of a stupid, spineless idiot", but about six people, including him, cut me off with "DON'T TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS!!!"

No one does it to me because I do it to myself before they get the chance to. I can't avoid spoilers. I hunt them down. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to watch or read something without any idea of what's going to happen, but it's hard to imagine.


In English Lit. today we were discussing Heraclitus. My English teacher described him as "a Greek philosopher who believed that everything was in a state of flux."

Of course, no one knew what I was laughing at.
