Instead of being a Bad Little Fayoumis and reading fanfic, I was a Good Little Fayoumis and instead read Pterry's Monstrous Regiment. I shall now adopt "thinking with one's socks" as a good description of some of garnetdagger's more impulsive and dangerous moments.
Compares favorably to Mulan and the Honor Harrington books.
"Falling", "Humani Nihil", and "Rengyuo" -- hot, dark, evil Maul/Amidala. The one line that I remembered, the one that still makes me shiver from over six years ago, the line I sought out to make sure that it was the same fic I remembered: "If I truly take my pleasure, they shall find your pale body cold on the marble floor at dawn."
I think it was six years ago. I'm not sure. I remember that I was pretending to be older online than I actually was for a while. This was 'cause they don't let kids play with smut. I was a Good Little Fayoumis and was only looking at smut online and not actually going out and doing things that could get me in trouble.
Is there such a thing out there as a Fandom Dictionary? Sort of along the lines of the Urban Dictionary, only fen-centric?
I'm also picturing something sort of along the lines of something cross between Urban Dictionary, LJ, and Slashdot, with a little bit of E2 thrown in for good measure.
Entries: in alphabetical order, with Urban Dictionary/E2 style definitions. Comments, LJ style. Ratings on comments and definitions, Slashdot-style, with /. style threading, even, perhaps. E2-style related links at the bottom. E2 node-ranking on the entries overall. Sweet, flexible, internal search engine.
Hell, that would be good for anything, not just a fandom dictionary thing. Any thing where you've got an environment with things that need defining, and multiple users doing it, and people who want to comment on it but not define, and enough people doing it so that you need to sort out the crap from the actual content. You could even restrict people who were allowed to make definitions -- only certain users, all registered users, or even anonymous users.
Encyclopedia. Dictionary. Jargon-tracking. Shared-universe writing. Game design. Program design.
Sync palmtop. Plasma. Write more things. Get lunch meat. Get bread for sandwiches for work. Start writing that one dark thing about the head. Clean litterbox. Take out trash. Polish nails. Go get cough drops, dryer sheets, St. John's Wort. Go get an umbrella and a box of table salt. Go to the much-deserved meetup with freshstartwrite with Daisy Miller and backpack. Bring back grapefruit. You liked that one. That is because you only ate the sweet juicy parts. Mmm, grapefruit.
At work the other night, the Sarcastic Monitor (I like her) was calling the Lead Monitor "woman". The Old Lady Monitor came in mid-discussion about how they were always "women", "ladies", "sweethearts", or something of the like.
I was departing. "Later, dudes," I called out.
General laughter. Commentary from the Sarcastic Monitor.
marxdarx trying to keep the Little Fayoumis on task
The Lunatic goes to the store to get an umbrella and salt.
The Lunatic comes back with:
hair things Arizona kiwi/strawberry drink a replacement shower caddy (whee! All the stuff fits!) a shiny little gift bag for the Birthday Present of Doom (belated) for Darkside clothes hangers headphones a new laundry basket another sparklyshinynot-get-hit-by-car flasher-thingy ...and an umbrella.
Arguably all needed things. Just -- not on the list. Except for the umbrella. And they didn't have salt in the right size container, so I didn't get any, as we aren't out yet.
Went to the plasma place late. Unforseeable delays there (everyone else decided to go there then too) so I was waiting an hour and a half longer than I normally do. This made me an hour late for writing group.
