If you read the LJ comm anthropologist
, it looks like it just got hacked and the modship changed. Don't click on any link, including the "Read more" in the most recent post by sugarimp - they go to some Russian site.

Huh. I read the military SF novel The Outback Stars
and unlike this Tor blogger
, I found the romance arbitrary and unconvincing and hated the whiny emo male love interest. He may have reason to be whiny and emo, but that doesn't mean I gotta like him for it*, and I don't find commander/subordinate romances hot, I find them hella unethical.* Er, maybe it's relevant here that my favorite male characters tend to be people like Manji from Blade of the Immortal, Kenpachi from Bleach, Hotaru from Samurai Deeper Kyo, Croaker from The Black Company, Sanzo from Saiyuki, Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho and my favorite Ninja Turtle is Raphael. I have little tolerance for the whiny emo subtype of brooding, embittered hero.
One tiny wee kitten, recently escaped from the bedroom, feeling trapped by the large cat who is making threatening noises at him. Said tiny wee kitten is standing on tiptoes, arching his back and puffing his tail in a laughably pathetic attempt to look big. And then he, in trying to sidle past the great large cat, starts walking sideways in an attempt to keep his side presented to the great large cat at all times. XD
I shooed him back into the bedroom and a good laugh was had by all.
