lienne: Outer space. (emotion: not in touch with reality)
From [personal profile] ashen_key:
I think it would be fun to talk about stories, but the usual memes are like, "What happens next?" "Tell me about Character A?" Which isn't so much talking about stories as it is writing more of a story. But you know how sometimes you read something and you're like, "I got ___ out of this story, I wonder if I have that right?" or "What on earth was ____ supposed to be?" and it's too awkward to ask the author? Now you could totally ask!

I've heard people say that writing is hard because you have to make decisions, but we never really talk about the decisions we make with stories or why we make them. We talk about plot bunnies, but not about how we actually turn them into a story.

And it seems like a lot more fun to do that than to do work.

So, if you want, ask me questions! (Or use this to ask your flist to ask you questions).

What were you trying to do [here]? Why did you decide to ____? This is what I thought about XYZ, is that what you were going for? What made you write ____? Why did you decide to do this? And so on.
If you are looking for things I wrote so you can ask questions about them, you might wanna hit up [ profile] peahen or my WIP post.

'cause it has come to my attention that there's actually no way in hell I can keep track of who's seen what anymore, or of who might like to see what, given the opportunity.

A list )

If you want to see what I've got for any of those, just drop a comment with your email address. :D

Butterflies and Lake each have their very own informal mailing list, to which I'll happily add you if you're not already on it and would like to be. I last sent out updates ages and ages ago, but I might do more soon once I can convince myself that another paragraph or two here or there is worth bothering you all over. XD

Via [ profile] cazrolime. Now with more gender-neutral pronouns, because the way the quiz switched from "he" to "she" to "they" irked me.

It's also about Watchmen.

More generally, it's about attractive evil versus repulsive evil, also known as why Chainsaw (or Rorschach) is the good guy (at least conditionally) while Jasmine (or Ozymandias) is the one you (the "you" that means "I") want to stomp repeatedly in the face.

(It is not about my love of parentheticals, although it probably should be.)

It is the post I tried to make yesterday and failed because it was nine (ten eleven twelve) PM and I am easily distracted.

It is probably going to be quite long. )

You know, with all the people talking about how it's twisted to identify with and admire Rorschach, I had to take a step back and ask myself why he doesn't bother me that much.

...I was going to write a whole post comparing him to Chainsaw, but I foolishly looked up "Heroic Sociopath" on TV Tropes in order to make a witty link about Rorschach's mental problems. Then I discovered that he's not actually that guy. Four hours later I have determined that he is in fact this guy (ETA: or maybe this one I swear I'll stop now), and completely forgotten my original point in the process.

Fuck TV Tropes.

*Okay, so it isn't anymore.

You know the drill, darlings. Comment for five questions, post answering the questions, rinse and repeat.
