I'm trying to write a fanfic based on Cinderella, and I just have this notion that it's really, really bad. -.- This one is seriously going to need to be rewritten once I get it finished. Oh, well. It was a spur of the moment decision to write it, just to take my mind off this unimaginable heat that's been cursed down on the whole country.

And I have this pounding headache and back pain that makes me feel like I'm going to break any moment now, which certainly doesn't help. But because I haven't gotten a job since I left school at least six months ago now, I don't have coverage -- I think that was the word my nan used -- so I can't use the Medicare card. The headaches and back pain have been off and on for two weeks now, and it is getting seriously annoying. When I wake up in the morning, an hour later it feels like I hadn't slept at all.

:/ Might as well just keep writing...

A Question

I'm in the middle of writing a chapter of my original fantasy story, and I'm a little worried about chapter 7; see, one of my characters was just busted out of gaol, and now their squatting in a house, wondering how they are going to escape. Not much happens in that chapter, and there is some banter. Is it okay if a chapter doesn't have that much action in it?

I'm looking for the name of a thing that you can hold swords in and put them up on the wall. For example in Pirates of the Carribbean 1, when Elizabeth's home is invaded by pirates, she tries to get a sword from that thing on the wall, only it's stuck. I need to know what that thing is. Can anyone help me?

For some reason, writing stories is becoming increasingly difficult. I am so insecure with my writing; in two days, I've drafted my original story at least three, maybe four, times. I've heard so much advice, gone searching for answers, and all I've got to show for myself is a newfound terror.

I don't like adding lots of detail to my stories; I don't describe the scenery often, I don't delve into the thoughts of most of the characters. I switch point of views between a few characters, I try to make the plot flow ... What do I feel like I'm doing wrong? I don't know.

Do I need someone to read over the chapters once I've finished them? But I don't have many friends that like to read. Sure, a lot of people have offered, but I'm terrified of showing them my work. Crazy, right?

Can someone help me out here, please?

Thanks to those people who put up those plot/character generators! I've now got enough fuel to last me for, like, ten years! Woo! I shall get started on a few of them after I go shopping tomorrow. I've been looking for something to help me get a few ideas, and then the moment I stop looking, you lovely people show up with links that give me thousands of ideas, awesome!

I may even use some of them for original works. Though I'm a lover of fantasy, so I few of them are going to be a bit hard to incorporate. I'll manage!

Just thought I'd thank you lovely people even though you might not see the post. Just because I'm tired and you're awesome.

Do you know how much I love you?

I am so happy with myself right now; I've had my smoochfest story posted up, and Glompfest starts soon - I can't wait to see a second story of mine posted up in a fest. My Glompfest story, though, was a fucking pain in the ass to write - but you gotta suffer for what you love, right? Unfortunately, I'm an anxious person. With smoochfest, I was constantly worrying something bad would be said about my story (is it okay to say I wrote it now that it's posted up?), until I read the comments *dances* ... I have participated twice in the friendliest fandom I have ever come across.

I don't think I've ever been prouder of myself, or the people in my fandom. You all should be puffing out your chests and looking down at the ground, because the ground just can't reach your awesomeness, and we all know that!!!

*Dances happily, stops and holds out a hand* Care to join?

That does not include Harry Potter!

Write down your favourite books from 1 to ten - it can be the name of a series - and share it with the world! The aim of this is to get others to read these books. But you cannot name a book that has already been put down. It can be in any order.

I'll go first *scampers off to my room to look for some books*

1 Prophecy; Clash of Kings by M.K Hume.
2 Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead
3 The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
4 Wildflower Hill by Kimberley Freeman
5 GriEVE by Lizzie Wilcock
6 The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa
7 Burn Bright by Marrianne de Pierres (she came to my school and autographed my copy!)

I could only do seven because I'm only just getting out of the YA section and into the Adult section, so naturally every other book that is not listed here is pretty crap and not worth mentioning.

Please continue on this little game I've got here. It takes only a few minutes out of your time. Enjoy reading ... and I need a library card!

The writers of Merlin are fucking lazy! This show is turning into a train-wreck from hell. I mean *SPOILER* Gwen gets moved up - promoted into a character that gets everything they want, but shows how she'll do nothing but kiss Arthur to get it - but Merlin stays a mere servant! What the fuck?! This show is called MERLIN not "Arthur and Gwen's love story"! In the legend Arthur knows about Merlin's magic, and doesn't he get promoted to the King's Advisor or something? 

How can you do this to a character that the show is based upon? There is nothing fresh about this show; the only reason I watch it now is to get the Colin/Bradley chemistry that looks so slashy on screen when they're in character. If, by the fifth season - depending if they have a fifth season - Merlin doesn't show Arthur his magic and get promoted somehow, I can officially say that this show had a lot of potential, but the writers got lazy and fucked everything up.

You know what, you know what? I am going  to write a series based on Merlin, keeping the little idea that they're the same age. I am going to write it how I think it should have been done - and then I'm going to publish the damn thing and show the shows lazy writers how the fuck it is done. There's a reason why they call it "plot development" and "character development" and "get your head out of your lazy ass-ment".

I'm so close to screaming right now, because I used to love this show so much!

(I'm still adamantly saying that King Arthur and Merlin got it on when nobody else was looking - just because Gwen didn't have the pleasure stick that King Arthur needed so badly).

What a crazy 2 hours it has been. I have now signed up to the glompfest and collected my awesome prompt, and now I'm signing up to be a beta for the communities asking for one. It is really amazing what getting your first ever prompt will do to a person, huh? If anyone sees this and is in need of a beta for their community, send me a link and I'll see what I can do. I am PUMPED. XD

Basically I'm only just finding out the worst fanfiction in history; My Immortal. I tried to read the damn thing, but it's like reading ... Well, nothing comes close to that horrifying train wreck. If you don't know what My Immortal is, just search it up on Encyclopedia Drammatica. I couldn't read it any further than chapter 2. I mean, Draco is so whiny and out of character, and Harry is named vampire with Ron "Diabolo" having transformed his scar into a pentagram.

Going onto Youtube was better for my brain cells. There was this one video where Voldemort had a rough yet slightly feminine voice, and Hagrid doing the chubacca. I've never laughed so hard in my life, and I had to hold it in because it's midnight and I'll be killed if I wake them up at this time of night.

When I tried reading it, I just wanted to curl up in a ball, rock back and forth and convince myself that I was still loved. That's how bad it was. I never want to put myself through that again. Worst thing is; it has 44 chapters.

Also features dead Draco who comes back alive by coming out of a guitar. No joke.

I need someone to draw something for me for my incubus story called "Within Temptation."

See, Draco is an incubus but I'm finding it really hard to envision him in my mind the way that he needs to look. If someone could draw him for me, that would be really great.

He's standing on Harry's doorstep, too. He's wearing leather boots and pants, his wings are out, and his blond hair is covering one half of his face. Other than that, the rest can be up to you; you can give him tats or body piercings. Plus, you can draw what you think Harry'll look like knowing that a sex demon just appeared on his doorstep.

The person who draws this can ask for anything to happen in the story - except sex; that a given considering an incubus is sex demon.

Thank you in advance.

I was just researching sex demons (incubus and succubus) for a story I'm writing, but check this out;

That's a face that would send mothers running out the fucking house, and I'm not just talking about the horse. But the horse is creepy enough. I wouldn't want to have an incubus in my bed; give me a naughty succubus anyday.

In all seriousness, though, I nearly threw my laptop across the room from fright.

*Whimpers and hides in corner*
(Doesn't help that sex demons can also come in as shadows, and I've been seeing shadows around my house for months now.)
