children of dune - leto 1

countdown to qaf: less than seven hours

I'm waiting for nine o'clock with a really pathetic kind of desperation here. It's so *sad*.


Two People Who Said Something Funny Last Night, Paraphrased

1.) rageprufrock - So, I noticed that the world's supply of dashes is getting low. That must mean you're writing again.

2.) fox1013 - I keep forgetting I can't take George to the shower with me, even though he's inflatable.

Again, sweetie, I do not judge you.

Three Common Things That Freak Me Out Badly

1.) Public bathrooms with only one other person in them. Oh come *on*. Tell me *you* don't get some performance anxiety when you realize they can see your shoes and hear *everything*.

2.) Decaffeinated coffee. It's--unspeakable. Decaffeinated coffee???? It's a day without sunshine, a cookie without chocolate chips, a slash story using the word asscunt, it's--okay. Maybe I went too far with that last comparison. That word should get its own number.

3.) Bright, electric, seventies-blue eyeshadow. I have no idea why this frightens me. But it does. It's so--blue.

Four Books/Series I Don't Admit I Own

1.) The Dragon and the Jewel - I was like, fourteen when I got this one, okay? It's so *bad*. It's this overblown historical romance novel and it's so *bad*, and the heroine is like, not even five feet tall with huge breasts and the hero's cock requires its own sheathe for daily wear, and they have ungodly amounts of seriously anatomically impossible sex, and I still just love it to pieces. Leave me alone. I'm weak.

2.) Many Star Trek Novels - Like, I used to buy them from the used bookstore by the *dozen*, okay? Even the bad ones. Especially those Vonda monstrosities that scarred me for life on poor old Spock. The original Star Trek ones had a higher percentage of good than the Next Gen or Voyager did, though, back when the publishers had souls. Though the TNG version of the Mirror, Mirror'verse is a favorite. The canon there is broken completely by the DS9 episode, but I just love it. When I was writing Voyager, I started a Mirror'verse one based off the TNG base, not the DS9 canon, just because of the strength of the Riker there. Just creeped the shit out of me in so many good ways. Okay, so not so not-with-the-admitting.

3.) Every damn Pern book published. I am *proud* of this, no matter how much my red pen of doom wants to go through and correct her canon, and what the hell happened to poor T'bor? *And* I once participated in an RPG for it. *sighs* A little, anyway. I miss my dragon. He was cute. I named him Pyroth. I think.

4.) Anita Blake - still my crack. I'm morbidly curious if she's going to come out of this as a goddess or something.
