Well, being that I used to write it my answer would almost have to be that I love it. I just wish that I could write complete stories instead of merely the idea snippets I get these days.

[livejournal.com profile] fanficrants always has good ones. At the moment I'm torn between [livejournal.com profile] blunder_buss' STOP BEING SEXIST F--KERS rant and [livejournal.com profile] gehayi's rant on unrealistic pregnancy stories.

Actually, just looking through the memories at [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants is fun...

Definitely in the Jo camp. And to be more specific, I'm in the "Jo/Friedrich Bhaer" camp.

Seriously, I can't stand to visit the Little Women section of the Pit. It's mostly made of up Jo/Laurie stories, and most of those are ones where Jo doesn't refuse Laurie's proposal of marriage or Friedrich passes away and Laurie is the only one who can help Jo heal even though he's married to Amy, etc. etc. etc. Poor Fritz is frequently put down by Laurie if he's lucky enough to be mentioned in fic at all. And the casting of Christian Bale as Laurie in the 1992 movie certainly didn't help matters. Even though Gabriel Byrne is much hotter...

So...yeah. My first go at doing one of LJ's Writer's Block things and I automatically go on a [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants tangent.

I've got to stop mixing the soundtracks of Tin Man and Wicked together.

For tonight at work, during the downtime before going through closing procedures, the muses came up with a new crack!pairing and God help me, I think I like it:

Glitch(Ambrose)/Elphaba.

My muses have gone off the deep end.

Found on [livejournal.com profile] darksunlight's LJ:


I believe in the Constitution of the United States. I believe in the Bill of Rights, due process, and the rule of law. I believe in the fundamental right of all people to express their opinions, free from censorship or fear of reprisal.

I may despise another man's opinion, but if I take away his right to express it, I take away my own rights as well. Freedom and Democracy cannot exist under a mantle of oppression and fear. Wrongdoers must be punished, but not at the expense of citizens whose only crime is to exercise those freedoms set down in writing over 200 years ago.

Yes, it's "only" LJ. It's "only" fanfic. In the scheme of things, perhaps not so important, right? Except that every flood starts with a single raindrop, and the bedrock of our political system is worn away bit by bit every time the rights of ANYONE are denied.


And if you believe too, post this as well

I've finally done it. I've written and posted my first solo outline for The Muppet Show.

Go and read.

My first LiveJournal entry, and what better way to start things off than with a rant?

Those who know me well know that I converse on-line with Cynthia and Josie a lot, and all three of us have this thing against people trying to get away with violating rules, be it on someone's message board or else at Fanfiction.Net. Well last night I was chatting with Cyn and she showed me a contest someone had up at FF.Net. Contests fall under the category of "non-fics," and Cyn mentioned that she'd already reported this thing once and it had been taken down. So I offered to report it this time.

One of my quirks is that when I report a fic (or non-fic in this case) at FF.Net, I leave a review telling the author that their fic (or non-fic) has been reported and why I have been reported. I dunno why; maybe so they know what they did wrong and know what not to do in the future. That done, I continued on my merry way for the evening before going to bed.

This morning I get up to check my e-mail, and find one from some person. The subject heading was innocent enough, but the content of the message wasn't. Apparently I was a "bitch" and a "bully" because I had reported just that one contest out of all the 20+ contests that are on FF.Net, and because I was ruining the fun of others because the contest non-fic had been removed. Then to take things to a higher level, the author of said contest non-fic posts a rant at DFW's Vent/Rant forum complaining about me reporting her contest. Fortunately several people came to my defense before I got there (you know who you are, if you're reading this. Thanks ;).

So what, I ask, is the problem with wanting to help enforce a couple rules? Obviously Xing knows he needs help doing it, which is why he set up things like forms to report fic abuse. What are the readers at FF.Net supposed to do, just sit there?

*sighs* And of course, it seems like the day has just gone downhill from this morning. I go for my morning walk, at the end of which my feet are killing me (I have lousy feet; I'll probably rant about them in another entry). Mom mildly bitches at me for spending "too much time on the computer," and I spent most of the afternoon sanding rust off of our porch glider, getting my hands all dirty and tingly and itchy.

All in all, one heck of an interesting first entry in my LiveJournal.

Adieuddles! (yet something else I'll have to explain later)
