It is not cute when you write children in fics as constantly replacing the letter/sound 'r' with the letter/sound 'w'. In fact, it is the opposite of cute. It is fucking annoying and slightly insulting to imply that just because a child is younger they can't pronounce things correctly. Not all children pronounce words wrong and write certain letters backwards. This constant assumption in fics that kids do this is aggravating to me and I don't even want children. It's just... you can write a child without writing them as doing these cliche verbal mispronunciations. There's plenty of ways to make it clear they're a young child besides having them mispronounce.

UGH. It grates on me. I'm reading a fic right now I love love love except everytime the kid talks it's fucking "fow" instead of "for" and argggh for the love of god have the kid fucking say things correctly. It's just as bad as writing out a southern accent overdone in dialogue. I cannot stand.

Also? Continue to suck it Rangers and fuck yeah, go Cards. I hope we end this shit by game four. That's right.

It makes me irrationally annoyed when I read femslash fanfic that has it where two cisgendered women having sex leads to pregnancy and then their child is a BOY. Not because, ewww, boys have cooties! But because science! Cisgendered women have XX chromosome which in humans only leads to other women. XY chromosome possessed by men is what makes it able for the fetus to develop into the male sex. You need the Y chromosome to have a boy and if two women having sex somehow leads to a kid then they don't have the correct chromosomes between them to have a boy since they're both XX and XX chromosomes can only reproduce other XX chromosomes or, you know, another girl.

I know, I know, f-preg is sci-fi! It's not real. Or wait, they've already done it in Japan with two female mice and guess what? They only had girls. So yeah. Science. lol. I don't know why it bothers me so much but it does. I don't read much f-preg fanfic but whenever I do and the kid ends up a boy I usually click out. I guess I can only suspend my disbelief so much?

ETA: Using my Janeway frowny face icon because it's awesome and hilarious not because I take this super seriously and it makes me frown that hard. I should do my sixth rewatch for all of Voyager again. I think it's been a year since I last did that.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: The name of this fic was totally stolen from the Snow Patrol song. It's not exactly upbeat but I still like it. Please, no JR bashing. I'm a longtime All My Children fan and I happen to love his character. Just not when paired with Marissa. And as a sad AMC fan I can totally vouch for the fact the Kane/Montgomery family is banned from the Valley Inn. It's one of their funniest moments. A lot of this fic is Marissa pov because I think it's honestly needed.

Certainly, Marissa wouldn't begrudge Bianca a night of sex )

You guys, did I like, create a Fleur fanfic trope with No Defense For You? Because I got bored and started going through fanfiction.net last night and there seems like a huge amount of Fleur/Hermione fics that uses the whole veela blood heritage and destined true love at first sight thing I came up with for that fic as their way of hooking them up. I mean, if someone did it before me I'll get them all due credit and more credit to [livejournal.com profile] meingeheimnis since her fic is massively more well known and popular than mine but gee whiz, that plot is all over this ship.

Sort of boring.

I should write that fic that has Fleur/Hermione as 40 year olds and having an affair while working together at the Ministry. First I need to finish the Pretty Little Liars fanfic though. I'm 10k into that fic and still wanting to get it done before I depart for Anime Boston.

I suppose it's official, I've plotted out a second Pretty Little Liars fanfic for Spencer/Emily to follow up A Romantic Study. Somehow I see this developing into a series of one shots. Sort of like I did with Whip It for Iron Maven/Babe Ruthless. Which could be pretty fun since I quite enjoyed writing all those stories.

I'm leaving at the end of April for Anime Boston (which I can't wait for as it's going to be super awesome) so I hope to get the fanfic posted before then. It's going to be significantly longer than the first one with more plot and explanation of Spencer's gay feelings of fabulousness for Emily.

Also saw Sucker Punch the other day. Quite liked it but I understand where all the negative reviews are coming from. I felt somewhat like a perv but dude, instant Rocket/Sweet Pea shipping occurred for me as I watched it. I couldn't help it really. I love the soundtrack too.

When people email me about my fanfic, I generally reply to them but when it comes to Livejournal (and especially Fanfiction.net) comments I don't respond for the most part. I've just read a lengthy discussion on one of the forums I lurk at where some established and pretty well known fanfic writers were saying to not reply to each and every comment they get is ungrateful and downright rude.

Really? I don't think that. I'm not sure what I would reply with anyway. Thank you over and over? I reply when I have something to say back to the person or they ask a question I have an answer to otherwise I just leave it.

Just wondering what other fanfic writers/readers on my friendslist or who read this LJ think about it.

I'll be co-hosting [livejournal.com profile] allaine77's radio show, Femslash4Fans, on January 6th at 10 EST. The show topic (in case you haven't read my subject line) will be Harry Potter. We'll be joined by [livejournal.com profile] redbeargrl and [livejournal.com profile] meingeheimnis so I expect the show to be thoroughly awesome.

My fandom New Year's resolution is to try and finish my many abandoned fanfic projects including A Thousand Glimpses (AMC), Fragile Things (My Otome), and A Matter of Circumstance (Marimite).

Even so, I'm horribly tempted to participate in P&P's Epic Proportions contest. Since it has to be a brand new fanfic I was thinking of finally writing my All My Children/L Word crossover fanfic that hooks up Bianca and Helena thus creating the prettiest/nicest/most made of win lesbian heiress couple of all time. The pretty, you guys, the sheer pretty!

Or I could finish my Legend of the Seeker fanfic that has Cara/Dahlia post S2 finale. Hmm.

Wayyyyy back in the day I started an alternate universe fanfic for Maria-sama ga Miteru suggested by Sean Gaffney based around the premise of what would happen if Yumi had been Sei's petite soeur. I liked the idea but I tend to have a short attention span (of a gnat some would say) and I never finished it.

Looking back on it, I love the premise but I dislike the execution I used. Basically using canon storylines and flipping it around so it's Sei and Yumi. Like the whole thing with Tsutako taking the picture and using a secondary storyline involving the bet for Sachiko to find a petite soeur, which involves Shimako this time. Also, as much as I do super love Sei and Yumi I love them more as friends than romantic partners. I prefer Sachiko/Yumi and Sei/Youko.

Anyway! I started rewriting and plotting out the fic again, flipping things up. I'm still using canon plot events but I'm not really focusing on retelling canon exactly how it is but with the soeurs changed around if that makes any sense. I mean, all the school festivals and the card hunt and elections will happen but I'm not going to tell the stories of how they happen in the same way as it happens on the show.

I find the new version I have in mind way more interesting because it sets up Sachiko and Yumi for romance again but they're more on equal footing since they're boutons then Roses together rather than being grande and petite soeurs so Sachiko comes from a different place with Yumi. Also, by setting up Sei/Youko it goes with a whole White Rose and Red Rose family falling in love with each other sort of joke. Plus Sei and Yumi being so close as soeurs that they like to irritate their perspective partners by being flirty with one another. Or rather that's more Sei being flirty and Yumi putting up with it because it's her onee-sama and she secretly enjoys Sachiko's jealousy.

Mostly I just love the idea of Sei and Yumi being soeurs because I think Sei would instill a lot of confidence in Yumi and Yumi would make Sei so happy in a lot of ways. As for Sachiko and Shimako as soeurs, Shimako is like mellowing to the extreme and Sachiko is so fierce about people she cares for there's no way that Shimako would feel like an outsider about her Buddhist background after Sachiko heard about it.

I finally have my second Legend of the Seeker fic for Cara/Dahlia completely plotted out and outlined scene by scene. It's probably going to be pretty long considering the outline alone is 5,000+ words. Yeahhh... lol. Basic plot?

Cara starts to get flashes of memories of the original universe and of Dahlia. She tries to keep this to herself but eventually the others notice as it causes her extreme pain and makes it hard for Cara to differentiate between her memories and what's real. Zedd has to admit what he did to Dahlia in the spell of undoing and reveals to fix Cara he needs Dahlia to do it. They go to find Dahlia because if they don't reverse what Zedd did eventually Cara will die or be driven insane by the flashes.

I was going to go for possible AU Dahlia which then turns into Mord'Sith Dahlia after the spell is completed but this is just AU Dahlia fic although Mord'Sith Dahlia shows up in the memory flashes. I'll start working on writing it tomorrow but don't expect it out for awhile. It looks to be long.

If you want to listen to me inanely prattle about fandom and fanfic, most likely my halfway plotted out new Seeker fic or the recasting of Bianca on All My Children, or call in and talk to me or just like post questions in the little chat window and tune in.

It's really hot here. I miss winter.

ETA: OMG! I just ordered a pair of new glasses from Global Eyeglasses online and I love them. Not only were the frames ridiculously cheap the hugest part of my optical bill my insanely hardcore prescription was only $200! I know that still seems pricey for some but seriously? I'm used to popping out $400 on the prescription alone and the version of cheap nice frames I like at Lenscrafters is $70 so this...? So fabulous. I totally recommend ordering from them. You just need your prescription and pupillary distance to make it all right with the world.
