Stuff That's NOT Happening...  
Which does not include spamming, apparently.

I'm not doing the Brutal Honesty Meme because I'm too thin-skinned for that kind of thing, and I also project that onto other people. ;)

So, for realz in general: If I write you fic for your birthday and you don't even acknowledge my birthday then, yes— that really hurts my feelings. And if you almost never respond to comments I leave on your journal... that hurts too.

From the other direction: Halfshell, you talk too much about RL randomness so plz stop! Also, you owe me comment-replies from the last millenium on your stories. And where's the porn?.

New topic: I went looking today (in a non-stalkerish way) for a user who used to be around the SPN fandom at the beginning. She had the most adorable userpics of herself (including kid pics), and I was hoping for some random happiness from them. But she's disappeared! Username was similar to magic_shell (somebody else has that now), and she was African-American. Anyone? Bueller?

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles-- I wish I'd liked this more. It was okay, but I kept losing focus after the first half-hour each week and so the plot's kind of vague. Perhaps this is why:
HalfshellHusband: Why is this kid Emo?
Me: They cast him because he's pretty. Prettier than the women, even.
HSH: But he's Emo!
Me: I can't help you there...

When that comes up multiple times during the show... it's kind of distracting, you know? Hope TWoP can help me out.

ETA: My distraction is the current Terminator actor Garret Dillahunt (also in "No Country For Old Men"), whose mouth so often forms the shape of an "M." It's bizarre! Half the time I don't even hear what he's saying. :0

Oh my God, I didn't respond to fic comments until after about 10 months of writing fic. I just didn't know. And I cringe now too. I'm like "Wow, people must have thought I was such a bitch"

The ones I don't reply to now are the PBFE ones because I don't want to give anything away. But I believe this round I went back and thanked everyone after the reveal.

I'm learning!

Oh, me too. *cries* I only responded to the ones that were extensive or thoughtful, not to the "Love it!" or other short ones. And when I look at those early SPN fics in particular, I just... gah! Feel like a total jerk.

Of course, way back when, I was nervous about responding to other people's fics because I didn't know them. I mean, everyone else seemed to be a pal of theirs and I was some random stranger.

It wasn't until I started writing fics of my own that I realized how dumb THAT logic was. :0

I totally agree with you, my dear MADAME *VENUS*!
It took me nearly one year before I've found the courage to get my own LJ account, and comment other people's fics or entrys because I felt... so strange, like an awkward outsider who dared to be a part of this.

Meanwhile, (learning by doing) this silly atittude of mine has changed and I - as to proove it - dare to invite YOU, my dear Madame Venus, for risking another look at my LJ.
- New layout, nice pics, I guess, you'll like it and this would make me happy! :O)

Until then, have a nice day and keep on writing!
*hugs you*

I like the new layout very much! Also the new colors, because the mustardy-green from before wasn't so much a favorite. :)

Wish I could remember the syntax for color-fonts as easily as you do. ;)

But you can always claim "I'm not a bitch, I'm excentric!" :) Artists get to do that :D
