There's that meme going around:

Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. Give a small description of what's inside, and provide snippets on request!

I'm really bad at "small descriptions." I think I like talking about my writing more than I like actually writing. >_>

my filenames are actually pretty boring; Assassin's Creed for the most part )

Hey, you know what I did in 2010? I read some books! This may not seem like that big of a deal, but since I've been reading less and less every year more or less since graduating high school, it's a big deal to me.

The books of 2010 )

The other thing I did in 2010 (I mean apart from all the other stuff, but whatever) was write fanfic. So, here's a meme I've seen floating around and about varying places:

I think I like writing about my writing more than I like actually writing my writing, and if I repeat the word "writing" a few more times, it's going cease to mean anything at all. Sort of like if you say "moot" too many times in a row. Or "penis."

Some navel gazing on stories I've written, thoughts on kink, consent issues in fanfic, noncon and dubcon, uncontrolled subtext, a bit of tmi. )

In slightly related news, [community profile] kink_bingo starts tomorrow! I'm really excited, for all that I've been completely unable to string any words together for a bit over a week now- I've been having a rough week in general, though, so hopefully now that it's over, things will get better. I've never participated in this sort of challenge before, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes.

Perhaps I will start crossposting my movie and TV reactions from Wordpress to here; perhaps I will make an effort to become actively involved in...things.

Anyway. I find, now that I spend much of my time on Shakesville, Pandagon, and Slacktivist, I've been redefining what I look for in my entertainment. That's right, I've become a Humorless Feminist, one of those people who finds racial and gender stereotypes kind of offputting.

stuff I like! )

How irritating is it when someone does something douchey and they say, "Well, I'm sorry if you felt offended, I didn't mean to"? It is so irritating.

Just- no. No, a thousand times no. There is no "if" here. You did a thing. Because of this thing, a person or group of people was hurt and/or insulted. The correct way to apologize is to say, "I'm sorry for hurting/insulting you." Not "sorry-if" or "sorry-you-felt-whatever." No. None of that. You apologize for the hurt, and then you ask what you can do to make amends. If absolutely necessary, you can then qualify with an "It wasn't my intention/I didn't realize/I never meant to," but only if you honestly had no idea your actions would have the effects they did.

This goes for asshats conducting poorly worded surveys on the internet and people you deal with in every day life. *sigh*

Anyway. I managed to find out about Ogas' survey the day he put it up- it popped up on my bloglists and I read through all of the awesomely intelligent and scathing comments left by various fans. I spent an afternoon indulging myself in the wank and the intelligent discussion, and it was deeply inspiring to watch fandom unite against the asshaberdashery of outsiders. But then I got to the RPS commentfic on the original survey discussion post, and I hit the back button so hard it gave me whiplash. And I hadn't looked at any of the discussion stirred up by the survey since then until today. So, whatever I have to say about the RPF commentfic (which isn't even available anymore, since the survey journal has been deleted), has probably already been said.

I feel the need to mutter about it anyway. )
