I'm glad for you, love.

It took some doing today, believe me.

(Hence the post all to itself.)

Your post sends me into a tizzy of confusion. The use of goddammit makes me think you don't really love your life, but your little dragon is smiling... Christ, I wish I could remember what 'quixotic' means... Well, if you don't love your life, I am sorry, and I hope things get better. Just go read the end of UL18, that's guarenteed to get your mind off anything that it might be on.

Sorry I have not responded for a couple of days; things have been kind of crazy, getting ready for Thanksgiving break, etc. I might write a journal entry about it, but it's not interesting enough to clog up your lj with, so I won't.

About UL, WOW. Okay, as I said, that is a really good story. Like, REALLY good story. It is so funny and clever and interesting and the characters are so good, and the plot is strong and the way the mood progresses is fabulous and the sexual tension is handled masterfully. I sat in my bed for about half an hour after finishing it, in some kind of shock from all the homoerotica, but not a bad kind of shock. You should feel good that you are spreading the H/D gospel (gospel? what have you done to me??) - my other roommates want to read it now, too (you know them as the stayed-up-all-night-without-being-drunk girls). I still don't think that H/D works in canon, though, but it sure does work in UL!

I will read your new story when I return from Thanksgiving break, partially because I will not have any free time between now and then, and partially because I cannot look at Tom Felton as anything but a bisexual sex fiend right now, and that is not how I want to view the PoA DVD when I get it for Christmas.

Now... off to comment on your other comments! Have a good week, and I will talk to you again on Monday!

To respond...a bit of both! It was a gritting-my-teeth determinedly sort of jobbie. Got some goddamn terrible news, 'bout Oxford (you can guess what)...but since everything basically just fell to pieces, I thought I might as well build it up again from scratch (what else is there to do?) and better. Hence the 'quixotic' - means 'impossible task'...xD.

Do, write about your Thanksgivingy thing! I want to know exactly what it's all to do with, aside from turkeys and strange sitcom episodes with Joey eating a lot.

I KNOW. I hope I convert ye all, ye little canon het pagans...hehehehe *evil Father Jack laugh*.

As for your ToT, I love it! I forgot the appeal of het - it's so real. Well, in theory...not personally. But the bit where Al repeats the 'creature' line...I swear to god I nearly died on the spot. THANK YOU for the rec!

Bisexual Tom Felton fiend...*droolz* I'm going to hell for this thoughts. You coming?

You too, dear!

I'm really sorry to hear about Oxford. Was it your first choice? There are so many platitudes that we all heard a million times last year when my class was applying to colleges, but I won't repeat them, because they are irritating and impersonal, and you probably have heard them a million times before. Instead, I will just say "good luck with your other schools, and mad props for finding your silver-lining and building up from there! More than many others (including myself) could do!" (I thought you'd appreciate the "mad props" bit!) Ah, right, quixotic! As in the Don!

I will undoubtedly have a full-length J.E. about Thanksgiving when I return. You know the myth history behind it, right? Friends Thanksgiving episodes are amazing.

I am so glad you like ToT! I love it. It has such a great plot. Much love to Alchemilla.

Will bisexual sex fiend Tom Felton be there? Because, if so, I will knock you out of the way to get there. I pull no punches when it comes to sexy, sexy fanon Malfoy.

::wakes up briefly::

I should be damning something? ;)

Ha. Riiiiight. Gah. My brain is about empty now. Bed. Yes. I had been about to respond to the news, but I'll err on the side of silence just in case it's been gone over enough.

I'm totally confused...but here seems to be the point to point out that in my last post, I had 8000+ words of a fic and one comment, and this one has what? Five words? And ten comments!


Okay, maybe now I get it.

Go back asleep, dear.

Aw, but now you'll never win the Booker Prize.

Sorry if that seems totally random. But my family makes these jokes about how I'll never write a depressing story about my tortured childhood and win the Booker Prize because my family is, ya know, functional and all that crap.

Oxford? As in the Oxford? I'll admit I don't really know what's going on since I haven't been reading your journal all that long, but any mention of Oxford = instantly impressed with me.

My family is pretty functional too, but from what I've read of BP winners, it mainly helps to be a twin. xD.

The Oxford. You may have to stop being impressed, though, because I just heard today that I didn't get in...for the second time. I feel fairly pathetic right about now! So, I applied, and failed...and that, along with the odd fic here and there which I force coralia13 to read (although all are welcome! *flails wildly*), constitutes my lj these days.

Gawd, I do feel so stupid over it...but I'll leave it and mention, which I don't think I did before, that I love your icon!
denial_girldenial_girl on November 23rd, 2004 08:41 pm (UTC)
I'm impressed about just applying to The Oxford. Not getting in is nothing to be embarrassed about. That place is hard.

Thanks about the icon. twlory made it.

It is bloody hard. If I was bitter I'd say it's an elitist mansion that you need ministerial or royal connections to get into...but I'm trying not to be, very hard! and it's not true.
Thanks :).

Yes, it very purty!

UM . . . is this GOOD or BAD?

every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on November 24th, 2004 10:46 am (UTC)
Trying to be good, extremerly hard...and getting there. I think I can, I think I can...!
gabbysun on November 24th, 2004 10:08 pm (UTC)
*showers of supportive love* YOU ARE TOTALLY TOO AWESOME TO HAVE A BAD DAY.
