I don’t actually have anything for you all to read today except this post here. Hope that is alright.
Firstly, thanks to the few authors who read my first couple fics and didn’t get offended…..especially those who use polyvore. It really is a personal pet peeve of mine and I find it really really distracting and feels like I’m being treated like an idiot. As an example, what follows is an actual conversation that occured recently on the topic of polyvore:
FRIEND #1 – I’m surprised they didn’t SHOW us what color nail polish she wore and the design she shaved into her pubes: <INSERT PICTURE BEING DISCUSSED – REMOVED TO PROTECT AUTHORS IDENTITY>
ME: Bwahahahaha. Duh what’s those roundish things at the bottom??? (referring to some sunglasses. ) And you know <author> doesn’t care what people think.
FRIEND #2: Why now?
ME: Oh ffs ammo?!?! She needs to show us ammo? *permanent headdesk*
FRIEND #2: Lol
FRIEND # 3: Lol
FRIEND #1: Wow – so THAT’S what sun glasses look like…I’d BEEN wondering… Ohh! Now I know what a knife and a pair of panties looks like, too!!!
FRIEND #4: Liar!! You have no idea what they are!!
FRIEND #3: I’m kind of scared about the wig/hair… if you’re fighting supernatural creatures, no way your hair is that cute.
FRIEND #1: See?
FRIEND #4: Lol
FRIEND #1: It’s missing some blood and brain-matter…
FRIEND #2: Lol
FRIEND #1: Ya know?? I’m sure that bra’s gonna help a lot…
FRIEND #4: not as much as the shoes though
FRIEND #1: Ohhh, just lemme sling my shotgun over ma shoulder and *giggle* fix my hair…
FRIEND #4: LOL
FRIEND #2: *thumbs up*
FRIEND #4: See I don’t go that far with polyvore!!
FRIEND #1: OMGOD, THAT’S WHAT A TANK TOP LOOKS LIKE!!!
ME: I love you women
FRIEND #4: Really????
FRIEND #2: Love you all more!!
FRIEND #4: I never knew….
FRIEND #2: I’m particularly fond of the shotgun shells she uses… you know, in case you want to fight supernatural creatures and need some ammo, now you know what to buy.
FRIEND #2: Now I have to go look
ME: You are all why I’ve been writing my whimsical fics
FRIEND #1: You can now, because of her benevolence, look at bunches of boxes of ammo and can now pick out by picture the box you need!! All she’s lacking is the nail file to dig supernaturals out from under her undoubtedly long nails.
FRIEND #2: At least she’s not wearing heels
FRIEND #4: Ugh
FRIEND #1: Brb…gonna cry into my peach green tea…
