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

plus he was on an episode of house as a clean-cut, buttoned-down teenage faith healer, and that's what i pictured every episode of scc.
! It's coming back to me now! I'd for gotten that he was on House, though I remember that episode. Heck, I remember them all. I lurve "House." ;)

a friend of mine not only not responds when i comment in her lj, she doesn't comment in mine.
Yup, I've got a few of those. :(

also i think she's the only person i ever wrote a story for who never acknowledged if she even read it.
I actually removed a dedication from a story when the designee didn't ever read/acknowledge it. It was too painful to have the reminder, and kind of embarrasssing as well.

*sigh* I see I'm not alone...

the only reason i know that was thomas dekker in that house episode was because i keep seeing it in reruns and keep thinking the kid looks familiar, so i finally did the smart thing and looked on imdb. and then i had an "aha!" moment and also a "...?" moment, because he went from cute and clean-cut to holycowneedsashowerandhaircut in what seemed like no time at all. from earnest faith healer to emo king of california like *that*.

>>I actually removed a dedication from a story when the designee didn't ever read/acknowledge it.<<

i used the opportunity to rant to lj. :D and then she got pissy because i was upset, as if i had no reason to even react. this became a pattern and the end result is we no longer talk unless i feel masochistic enough to try to find her on chat. which i don't. and oddly enough i'm ok with never hearing from her.

sadly you're not alone. but i think there are fewer people like that than people who do actually comment or respond.
