(No, i haven't finished my paper yet. Why do you ask?)
a ficathon for people who wrote for a ficathon and didn’t get anything back, and a commenter mentioned people not even giving you a “Thanks for the effort” when you write them stuff for ficathons, so of course i felt like shit because i keep thinking i should say something nice to doyle_sb4
for the Giles/Ethan
she wrote me, because it is very good, but i suck at commenting unless i really love something (or unless someone specifically asks for feedback, in which case i try to give detailed commentary) so i went and posted a comment. I get all pouty when no one comments on my stuff (and i also thus assume it sucks and just no one wants to say so) so one might think i would be more conscientious about commenting on stuff people write for me, but no.
That said, people should go read my fic and give me feedback. Yes.scrollgirl
Is a person obligated to leave a comment on a fic written for them, even if just to say “Thanks for the effort?”?
: turns out the fic i was thinking of that my friend wrote was a Buffy/Faith/Tara she never finished. In talking to her i remembered a Faith/Tara fic i had read that was part of Secret Slasha 2003. It’s here
. I also looked in the past years and there’s a 2002
and a 2001
, neither of which I have read. I did a Google search for the pairing, too, and, not looking past the first page, got:
Destined to become a reference librarian? Who, me? (And yes, of course i could have just sent this to Scroll, but why not share the knowledge?)
In other news...
Damn, lyric wheel is worse than original flashficathon in terms of time in which to write fic. Of course, this relieves some of the pressure of possible suckage. My Illyria sounds like Seven of Nine, which makes sense given that i was totally feeling that when watching her. The character i need her to be having a conversation with doesn’t exist in this ‘verse, but Lorne is the closest one, so that’s who it is, but he is sounding so out of character, because i’m trying to make him a character he’s not. The closest to what i want would probably be Wes, but that doesn’t work because there’s the additional dynamic of her being in Fred’s body. It really should be Giles, but of course that can’t happen because of the recent canon, which would require pages and pages to write him out of. Le sigh.
Also, *loves on jacklemmon
Oh, i read King & King

Nikki: What’s clotted cream?
Virada: It’s like if whipped cream and butter had really really good sex.
Oh, it occurs to me that since Room Draw is this Wednesday, that puts Velvet Goldmine
