Even now there are places where a thought might grow  

Guess what? I have about fifty documents on file that contain the beginnings of fics. *marvels at the emptiness of her own life* One of them is actually quite good, by my standards, and is HET -- Lily/James -- the only problem being that I ran out of impetus at 30,000 words and still have no idea where the plot thread went to. Decided to pack in the stressful career and set up a basket-weaving commune in Norfolk, most likely. I still haven't dared to look at that ten-chapter Draco/Hermione one that I wrote over two years ago, when I felt *inspired* by the Greatest Hits of REM album and thought "Nightswimming" was the most original ship song ever. *le sigh*

Speaking of fics, though. I just posted a Draco/Goyle: Though the night yield no glimmer. (Oh yes she did!) I'd like people to go read it, please. (Oh yes she would!) Mainly because I'd just like people to read stuff I write.

...

Nope, still can't think of a better reason than that.

...

Damn.

Kat: fic - summary: rated R for abstract sexkyasuriin on September 24th, 2005 01:57 pm (UTC)

oh I hear ya. I'm the exact same way. And it makes me a little sad, like all these fics are forgotten little brain children, orphaned by the muses. poor things. *pets text document* and the problem is I genuinely like all of them. Like, I reread them every once in a while and I really really enjoy the writing but then I just sort of run out of steam or motivation. guh.

I run out of steam all the time, but mostly when I'm writing something that's really long. Generally, however, I hate my old stuff, so laughing out loud at something even while grimacing at the grammar suckage was a nice surprise.

Still recovering. I mean it.

Okay ... but I can't afford therapy for you, and I mean that. :P

Liar. You're a medical student-type gal. You should be able to get me pills easy.

True, true. A criminal offence and all that and I won't be seeing a hospital until 2007, but still!

You know we have to pretend to be patients? And be PRODDED? And VIDEO-TAPED? All in the name of "finding out what it's like to be a patient." Piss on that, I say. >.>

I did too, before slash hijacked my brain. And I honestly would, only it's utterly, utterly dire. I was at that point where I thought I could write porn without knowing what it really meant, what worked and what was actually sensual, erotic etc. BAAAD idea.

*dies laughing* Look, I took it and everything! I've seen a couple of episodes and thought it was ace (only House is really, really like Dr Cox from Scrubs). I'll use it on "med entry" days (and now). Bellissima! *kisses fingers* Have you seen him as Mr Palmer in Sense and Sensibility? I nearly wet myself.

Yes, I do know the song. Come to think of it, it is basically obscene, is it not? (Yay, yet another corner of my mind irreperably soiled!)

Not a ripoff, just very similar. You must get S&S; his Mr Palmer is one of the highlights of the film!

Hyper-gonadism? Isn't that, like, huge huge balls? *faints*

Hey, you look fun. Wanna play?

How many people have asked you that after you put it in your userinfo, seriously?

Sorry.

No, it's just that I read your fic as rec'd by cynicalpirate, even though I have stuff that I wouldn't be doing anyways and was blown away so I went to check out your journal, hence this post that sounds as though it were written by an immature toad. So once again, sorry, and I hope you don't mind if I friend you, or try too hard :/

Actually ... you're the first. *grins* It's relatively new -- as in, a fortnight -- and I don't think anyone's spontaneously friended me in that timespan. But it's cool. That someone does think I look fun, even with prompts. xD

Sure, friend away! *does likewise* I lurve bouncing about with new people. And trust me, liking a writer's fics isn't trying too hard, it's like hearing the first rendition of Mozart's fifth symphony played by the dude himself. (That's if he ever did play it. Or if he had a fifth symphony. Music to my ears it is to which I refer ... you really don't know what you're letting yourself in for. :P)

My apologies. I shall nevery call you mitzi again.
Good, I'm glad! Early bird gets the worm, or some such nonsense that would make sense here.

That's if you've got the courage to post the fics, though! For which I also admire you, as well as teh skill, because - wow. So just to clarify, you post fics in rainspots, and real life here, right?

Oh, I only pretend to be Elrond every second Sunday of the year. :P
*grin* Are you one of the ones who doesn't post fic? Most people don't flame or leave bad reviews, you know; they just ignore you. Which, in truth, is more cutting. You're right: This is RL, rainspots is fic. However, I doubt there's any need to friend rainspots. Unless you really, really want to see my fic as soon as it's posted or something. *le shrug*

Re: Oh, I only pretend to be Elrond every second Sunday of the year. :P
I am indeed one of those. I think all of two people in the universe have ever seen a fic of mine. I'm not worried about bad reviews, or concrit (which I love) or any of that. I just don't want to disillusion people who think I may, in fact, have the ability to write. Or I'm a coward, but I like the first one better.

All you probably need is a stringent beta. People can have talent but not the tools for using it, if you get me. *shrug* If you want to write, chances are with practice you will be able to!

Re: Oh, I only pretend to be Elrond every second Sunday of the year. :P
Oh, I write from time to time. And I enjoy it. It just sucks - and I don't mean the grammar. Plus, I have no patience for practice - if it's not perfect immediately, I tend to get frustrated and give up :/ I should probably work on that.

Give yourself some time. Patience only comes with age. xD

Oh, my darling L/J fic! Good to know you still exist in computer world. One day?

I am looking forward to reading your Draco/Goyle when I have more than five minutes free at a time!

I'd say very much so! I'm laughing away to myself as I edit it. Not a good sign ... but I'm having fun!

Hehehehe.
