All non-Tenipuri people, avert your eyes!

Or not, because what I have to say is this:
I'm never going to be able to write fic in this fandom! All I know about Japanese culture is that on Japanese Airlines they give you this horrific little bundle of rice with something bright pink in it that I've never dared to taste. With every meal. And that people are short.

Sigh. A lurker's life is the life for me. Still, it's not like posting HP fic did anything much except make me (more) bitter and twisted, after all.

On that note, I have a whopper H/D fic coming soon. You could probably get it for a euro on the new Eurosaver Menu at McDonald's. And now I am raving like a loon from Loonville, USA.

(This post was brought to you by reading 2 and 1/2 snippets of fic on bookshop's anon crit meme. Thank you.)

HAHA, scoradh-chan. You will have no problems soon enough, I promise. You just need to get into the swing of things :D.

I like being called scoradh-chan. That would be enough incentive to write it, if people called me that in return. Or to stop me from doing it again, whatever.

Definitely in the running for mayor of Loonville, USA, now.

Excellent. And I will call you scoradh-chan any time you like :D. I don't care who thnks I'm loony.

Nonono, that would not make you loony; merely kind and accomodating to the loony person over in the corner of fandom. That is, me.

Ohhhhh, so confused.

When I have to get up at seven, of course I am wide awake at half-twelve. Excellent, metabolism, thank you.

Heee! No, I knew what you meant. It's all good, sweets. ♥

It's not too hard once you read and write enough. I knew next to nothing coming in either, but the fandom is really helpful in explaining things. :)

Ah sure yeah, that was the case with HP too. Still and all, I may make a conscious decision to lurk this one out. It's ridiculous, the amount of pressure I put myself under re: fic writing.

Not that I am looking the HP horse of talent in the mouth, oh no. But I need some good fic by you, man, or I will... DIE OF ANGST AAAAAAAAAAAAAH.

Hold your horses, love! I totally intend to, but I have to assimilate the new canon yet. We're going to see the new film tomorrow night, all going well (it's already been put off twice, but I'll say nothing).

I read a Nigella Lawson book in the library and it mentioned sushi. I feel so knowledgeable. Not.

Well, I emailed my uncle in China to see if he would rustle up some DVDs for me. Sadly he has not replied yet, although if I were in his place I probably wouldn't either. Someone else on my flist offered to burn them for me, but then she broke her hand! Besides, I'd feel bad putting someone to all that effort, so I guess I shall toddle on till September. Patience is a virtue, or so I'm told. ;D

No, no, see, you have to write fic, because I am just now finding out that you have found your way to my lovely show, and if you do not a) watch the anime and b) write fic for us, then I WILL CRY, DO YOU HEAR ME? CRY RIVERS OF COPIOUS TEARS THAT WILL FORM AN OCEAN OF GRIEF.

Which is to say, uh, am probably about to go back and stalk your recent journal entries now. Heads up.

(Do you know about rackets?? We have the whole series there, plus the manga, available for direct download. Just thought I'd mention it in case your computer hates torrenting as much as mine does.)

Well, I would not like to be responsible for adding anything more to the oceans of the world what with that threat of submerging Ireland that we're getting from the melting ice-caps and all, but why? I don't think I'd be terribly good at it, and if it's anything like HP fandom the last thing it needs is mediocre fics from people like me!

Kay ... I haven't written any fic, though, I promise.

(I have! Thank you immensely for providing that excellent service. I have all the manga as a result. I had no way of getting the anime until September but moshi, out of the incredible kindness of her heart, offered to burn and send me the anime. I ♥ fandom.)

If you get this twice, it is because lj often has a voracious appetite for exactly half my comments. Someone should feed it.

I tried to do tai kwon do once, but I had to give up because I couldn't kick my leg high enough. Or, like, at all.

I took Aikido. It was fun. Massively so. No kicking required.

never been on Japan Air, but from my copious sushi restaurants in San Francisco experience, I'm gonna say the bright pink is
1. pickled beet [yum!]
2. pickled plum [eh]

Is is like, fuschia bright pink, or just neon carnation? ;P
every Starbucks should have a polar bear: Nitrous oxidescoradh on July 17th, 2006 10:13 pm (UTC)
Fuschia bright pink, definitely. Either way, I wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot chopstick. I have three food groups: sugar, starch, and sugared starch. If it comes in a packet and has been processed to within an inch of its life, I'll probably like it.
