So it's 2012 and not much has changed.

  • slowly but surely plotting/shaping an amazing Paperlegends2012 fic with the flawless [livejournal.com profile] amphigoury basically the artist and co-creator. As Reni said, I'm just her pen :P
  • excited about _hols reveals...even though I have like 10 tabs with fics open to read D:...not to mention ALL the Paperlegends fics I still haven't read D:
  • made an accidental new year's resolution wrt fandom-type stuff and am keeping it so far, so yay! it'll be better in the long run, even if it hurts, I think.
  • miiiiiiiiiiiiiiight have a plot bunny for kinkspiration. maybe. hope I actually churn something out.
  • everyone should go sign up for [livejournal.com profile] werewolfbigbang I'M JUST SAYING.

  • RL-wise:
  • Christmas etc: I think I might make another entry because there are endless thanks to be made, so :P
  • we got a washer/dryer in today, so I'll finally be able to do laundry once they're installed! :D excited.
  • had possible job thing from stepdad but he's a flaky flake so I guess I'll get to properly looking for work myself.
  • going to see my hs besties this week. I'm really excited because it's been forever since we've seen each other :D
  • aaaaand just as I was typing this up, stepdad broke my sister's heart by canceling on plans they'd made 2 days in a row. nice.

  • I hope 2012 is being good to you all so far. So I'll leave you with the most perfect and heartbreaking s7 thus far Dean/Cas vid ever ;_;

    Even with his "proviso" at the top, it's so so so so hard not to judge Eoin after his latest short story.

    I'm not sure if he's trying to be edgy (at your age, Eoin? really?) or what, but this?

    This face belongs to that social anomaly, the gay air hostess. The gay air hostess is another beast entirely separate from real life, it's emasculated, yet bizarrely has a position of power in that this creature, clearly wishing it was a female getting a good ride from behind, can tell bigger more ostensibly male types what to do. And they do it.

    And the fact that he continually refers to this one particular male flight attendant as "It (and always capitalized, oh god)?" I can't. I will also say that I haven't made ti all the way through, so maybe I'm judging too harshly and the "character" whose POV we see this from actually gets bashed with a unicorn tiara to death, but...yeah.

    ETA: Eoin "explains:"
    Em, 'theharshknight', it is a story, a tongue in cheek satire, you should read David Sedaris..... There is an eminent problem is writing sometimes because people take things as literal. I have many gay oriented friends, and it is not even about that, it is a small commentary on a certain aspect of life and the character of 'I' is a creation, not a reality.

    So...he's just a shit writer (like [livejournal.com profile] wldcatsprstr_14 said) who has no foresight into audience reception?

    ETA2: He deleted. I don't want to repost it here, but an anon on mm copy-pasted the whole thing here. I do warn for homophobia, if you choose to read.

    What did I do on the evening of Jan 3, you ask? Argued with Eoin Macken online. SMH
