ZOMBIES!!!

oh my god, I can't stop laughing, look at what came in my inbox



For context, Crescent Moon was the first fanfic I'd ever written, is a WIP that hasn't been updated since 2010, because that's when I realised it was a terrible story, with cardboard OC characters, Mary-Sueing and out-of-characterness, purple prose and just general ridiculousness. It doesn't help that it was a Twilight fic. Though, I'm fond of it in the way you're fond of pre-school finger paintings, because I know I had to have written a bad!fic before my writing level could have arrived to where it is today.

The only reason I haven't taken it down is because I believe that once a story is online, I should keep it online for posterity's sake. It's like a reminder of "never again will I write something this bad". 

I am amused at this person's reaction. Fanfiction.net has the helpful aid of telling you publication/update dates. They probably should have guessed it was pretty abandoned. I've honestly forgotten where I was going with it, but I vaguely remember it was a probably ridiculously bullshit happily ever after.

But, I love this review, despite its extremely errant nature. The all-caps and the "I HATE YOU!" made me laugh and I thought I'd share. Because, seriously, if you want an author to continue writing a story, saying something like that is not the best way of going about it. Still... ahaha. :P
ZOMBIES!!!

Just saw The Avengers

It was amazing. Absolutely brilliant.

I thought it was worth paying for the 3D. Despite the huge cast, I feel like every character had their moments. The action was fantastic and it was really quite funny at times. To be honest, I'm surprised at how much I loved it. 

Really enjoyed it and would totally recommend seeing it. I think it helps if you've seen some of the tie-in movies (Iron ManIron Man 2ThorCaptain America: The First Avenger, and The Incredible Hulk), but it's not super necessary to have seen them all.

drive-by post to say

THE HUNGER GAMES MOVIE WAS FUCKING GLORIOUS

I CANNOT EXPLAIN IN WORDS HOW PERFECT I CONSIDERED IT

(there may have been some things that could have been tweaked a little, but that's just me being nitpicky)

HONESTLY ONE THE BEST BOOK-TO-MOVIE ADAPTATION I'VE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF SEEING

PERFECTION ON THE BIG SCREEN

GO, RUN TO THE THEATRES, WATCH THIS

IT DESERVES ALL THE MONEY

ALL THE MONEY

</vomiting rainbows of joy, happiness, and unicorns>

hey everyone

I figure I should pop in to explain my AWOL behaviour.

Firstly, I am still planning on finishing Behind the Masks and Monitors. Don't worry. I'm also planning to write a few more fics too. I'm hesitant to call it a hiatus, because I'm still writing a bit, but I certainly don't have as much time as I used to.

Things have just been really hectic between uni and my personal life. Most worryingly, my friend is getting stalked by her ex-boyfriend and my other friend is failing his courses because he's suddenly lost all motivation. I'm doing relatively okay, but I find myself getting progressively more tired and worn out.

So, I apologise for not being more active, but I have to concede this is one of those times in my life I have to step back and work on my RL side for a while. 

On the upside though, I'm going to see The Hunger Games in the next few days. :)
YAY

leave me fic prompts

seeing as I'm bored, I'm going to ask people to leave me characters and/or pairings in the comments and I'll give you little drabble pieces of my head canon (if you want an AU setting or something, just specify)

try to aim for a fandom I'm familiar with please, though go free reign on any pairing/character/AU that you want; length of response will depend on my muse

I'll leave this open for a while, see what happens :) Sorry folks, requests now closed!

sudden realisation

all my main original fiction characters (across a few novella length pieces) all seem to have self-loathing tendencies to some degree

now, is that because I like writing flawed characters
OR 
is my self-conscious trying to tell me something?

oh dear, I hope it isn't the latter 

though in all fairness, the idea of writing a main character who is perfectly happy and content with their life seems... dull beyond words

schadenfreude, perhaps?
WUT?

Don't you hate it...

... when bloody tree snakes get inside the walls of your house? I was taking out the garbage and saw one slide into a hole in the brickwork.

I know they're a protected/endangered/something species of non-venomous snakes, but still, I hate the fact that I've now got to label my laundry room a "WTF watch where you step" zone. I don't want to kill the snake, I just want to gently shoo it away.

BLARGHY.
