11:27 am - Um.

This was SUPPOSED to be a short answer to chomiji's question below, originally asked here, but it turned into a huge, rambling essay looking at a particular type of character and why I like that type, so I'm posting it in a new entry. Hopefully it'll spur some discussion. :D my current default icon is so appropriate right now.

chomiji: Why do people like Gin, anyway? He gives me the creeps ... always has, even before we found out what he was really like.

Good question - especially because he hits a whole lot of my narrative hot buttons. :D So I've been trying to work out, exactly, what it is about him* that I like. Read more...Collapse )

kate_nepveu recommends Princess Tutu in a long, nonspoilery post.

(WHY oh WHY am I still online? I've got the new Pratchett novel IN MY APARTMENT and I'm not reading it! This is a state of affairs that cannot be allowed to continue to exist!)

08:18 pm - Still not reading Pratchett...

...because you people KEEP POSTING STUFF!

Anyway, in the Enormous Gin Post of earlier today, fmanalyst begged to differ with my interpretation of the villain of the Soul Society arc, and has posted an analysis.

Now to go read it...

09:24 pm - Ow.

Managed to injure myself on the refrigerator, of all things. I'm not entirely sure how it happened, but I ended up banging the heel of my left hand just below the thumb hard enough that I was mildly concerned something might be broken. It's subsided to being just sore now, but you know how hard it is to hold a hardback book or type with both hands without moving your thumb or exerting pressure with it? Damn hard, thank you very much.

And now I stop whining on the internets and go back to read TERRY PRATCHETT.
