Rainy days and Sundays ...  
Why are so many Fuji/Eiji fics under lock? Why? Why? Is the Dream Pair a cover for some grotesque kink, the sort man should not wot of? I mean seriously people. I can handle it.

Heh, and I was answering comments to an old fic and it got me thinking about 'my' OCs. People are constantly surprised that they're not Mary Sues. I'm not -- I can't even define my own personality, let alone write it comprehensively enough to slot into a fic, and I consider Mary Sues idealistic self-insertion. But it just made me wonder if anyone would be interested in reading my original work. This isn't a poll; I'm not going to go back and harrass people for comments later (do I ever?), or set up filters (wa-hey too much effort). Obviously if there is zero interest I won't bother.

[elevator musak in R's brain] I love the film of Mansfield Park, despite the wacko male characterisation. Run mad as often as you like, but do not faint! My favourite Jane Austen too, so that's lucky.

Your icon has Dan in it, doesn't it?!

Clearly there is some kind of cult you need to join to gain access to the Dream Pair. I will never be cool enough. [sadly retires]

Well, there's that too. I honestly think it's amazing that people can deceive themselves like that, but I've never read a serious fic that contains that kind of thing. There are problems with characterisation, sure, but not that kind.

1. Cool icon!
2. I would love to read some of your original fic - poll or no!
3. I, too, love the Mansfield Park film. I have read embarrassingly few of Austen's books, but have seen most of the film adaptations. I am hoping to take an Austen course senior year once I get back from Oxford to remedy that problem. But, yeah, the film is great; I think they did a great job of conveying a lot of the creepy sexual atmosphere. And I love the lead actress, even though she has been in other, less impressive films.

1. Thank you! Of course I have no idea which one I used, but.

2. I thought you might say that -- but do keep in mind that it's written like my slash fics, except with original characters, with all that entails. So ...

3. Oh, bold child! There's only five. Then again, I can't say anything -- I've only read one and a half Dickens and I couldn't bring myself to open the Henry James. No leg to stand on. The only thing about the creepy sexual atmos was that there wasn't one -- not in the book. Sir Thomas was actually a decent guy, except for the stick up his ass. And there was no slavery issue. Then again they shoved women's rights into S&S. It doesn't meld, but oh well.

Admit it. You love that film. :-P

Re: Jane Austen. I take it back! I have read Emma. There are only five? Wow, if I could write five books and be that famous, I'd be a happy woman. Scratch that: if I could write five books, I'd be a happy woman. I must read these books, anyway, so I don't try to make intelligent comments and then discover I'm only relevant to the movie version. Ah, well.

I like Dickens, but that's mainly because of the importance of A Christmas Carol. In my developmental stages of Christmas memories. Didn't love Great Expectations, but didn't hate it, either. Must read Nicholas Nickleby and Oliver Twist so that my main reason for loving them is no longer "hot guys in the movie versions." God, I sound likd such an American, don't I? Or maybe just dumb. Those two keep getting confused in my head.

Ditto. :D

We can be dumb and American together, because that's the only reason I liked NN. The blonde guy was in the British Queer as Folk and I slashed him with his cousin before I knew he was his cousin and I think that makes me totally lose at life. ♥

Guh, when I saw him in NN, I thought I had died. Or should die, because heaven is the only place I could meet a guy like that in real life. Or... real afterlife. Or something. He's such a lustbunny! Him in that movie is actually what caused me to say the line (now famous among my friends): "He's so respectable and delicious!" Hot damn. I long to live in the books where the good people are necessarily gorgeous. (Although that might just be the movie version, too.)

That's just it. I can't find any. They're all locked. Except for the ones by kishmet -- of course they are excellent, but I was hoping to find some non-established-relationship ones. Or even just a whole swathe of them, good bad and indifferent.

The anime god loves me not.
