You know what word is really unsexy? Skull. I hate reading fanfic in which Giles runs his hands over Buffy's skull. Ew. Does he caress her phalanges? Place gentle kisses along her mandible and down her sternocleidomastoid muscle? No. And with good reason. Nothing kills the mood like conjuring up a coroner's report.

I am spending way too much time reading [ profile] sahiya's A Heavy Darkness Falling today. Wonderful! But with the continual interruptions, I fear it will take me forever to get through. Why didn't I appreciate Giles/Willow goodness sooner? Probably because most of the fics I came across that paired the two were pretty crummy. I am falling in love with Willow a little bit more every day. Ooh, and I'm working on a G/W/B that will most likely never see the light of day. I've taken this new attitude that I should just write for my own pleasure. Maybe it'll help me relax about the process more. Hmm. Dunno.

Oh, and I went to the library this week and they had a box to donate old eyeglasses to Unite for Sight or some such org that sends old prescription glasses to the poor in Africa. Thought that was pretty cool. I'm always looking to donate anything I can as part of my reduce, reuse, recycle efforts. I'm not doing so well on the reduce part; packaging is a bitch. But reuse and recycle? Easy peasy. And I'm seriously considering getting solar panels. Molto denaro, though probably worth it. I have to make up for the fact that I own two SUVs. Though, in our defense, we drive them both under 5,000 miles a year. Folks in the country with their pickup trucks do a lot more polluting than we. Eh, not really comforting, but I refuse to give up the luxury of fitting all our family and friends in one auto. That reduces the need to take two cars places. And, my husband takes the train to work everyday. Public transport's a good thing. Though not air travel. Terrible for the environment. How come no one ever acts like they'd like to see that reduced?

Hmm. I need a G/W/B icon in the worst way.

I think I'm broken. I can't get through any fanfic these days. Nothing's wrong with the stories--it's me. I'm not working properly.

Hey, today's the 11th! Doesn't someone have some wonderful Ethan/Dawn fic coming out today? Maybe it'll help kick me back into the land of the obsessed.

Heh. I don't even feel like talking about myself anymore. And you know something is amiss when even the narcissism isn't up and running.

What the heck is up with people? I have read some disturbing fanfic before. Stuff that's put me in a funk. Stories that are upsetting on many levels for all different reasons. I don't get it. Maybe I'm just too Pollyanna-ish to take it. I don't mind a bit of angst. Gore can be dealt with. Kinks of all kinds don't seem to bother me that much. Sometimes I even learn new things I think are kinda sexy. But I was just reading through one of the fics [ profile] soft_princess recced the other day. It started off so well, I thought, that'll teach me for being so picky about things like pairings, but Jeez Louise, did it just turn into one of the darkest, sickest fics. I'm not even going to bother to finish it. Maybe it's beautiful. Maybe it ends well. A perfect fic that I'll miss out on because I'm being too narrow-minded. What I don't understand is why these authors have no sympathy for poor Buffy? Look at the stuff she was put through on the show. Now this? Jumping Jehosafats!
