tales from a fangirl
So I've been reading A Song of Ice and Fire series...

I'm a bit behind, I'm only just finishing A Clash of Kings, and I wouldn't call myself a fan. I'm reading them because I need to read, it's like air, and I have seriously been over the romance section of the bookstore for a while now (not that I wouldn't mind going back if I find something that spoke to me), and the books are written well enough (however long winded). GRRM has done a very good job developing some very interesting characters, and also his backstory to the books is fucking epic.

And what I've learned after finishing one of Theon Greyjoy's chapters last night is that GRRM has forgotten more ways of emotionally ripping the guts from his fans than Joss Whedon will ever learn.

(Jesus, dude. Can't anyone get a goddamned break in your books? Isn't there one sacred cow with you??)

So even though I'm wondering if I'm emotionally equipped to keep reading, I am sufficiently invested enough to do it. God help me.

And uh, if anyone is still wondering, I still love C/A, I still love writing them, but I am seriously lacking in time and attention span right now. Case in point, A Song of Ice and Fire is strictly bathroom reading.

It's the only uninterrupted (barley) time I have these days.

Unless no one still reading my stuff cares about plot? Then I could just do a couple of PWPs every weekend? Maybe?

Eh.

Write what comes to you. Seriously, write whatever you want, whatever you feel. I will read whatever you write.

And if you ever need to talk to someone about the books, you got my email address. I read them last summer I think it was. Maybe two summers ago?

Speaking of reading (since we have similar tastes), I just finished The Queen's Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner. Four books. Amazing writing, twists, and emotional punches. It might be something you might enjoy.

Ah, sweetie, that's so nice of you. I hope you like porn *giggles*, it's what I feel like writing MOST of the time. :) And it's quick and I can say I'm writing and not just WISHING I was writing. :)

It's going to take me a while to get through the whole damn saga, and I'll probably need some light, almost superficial, reading after that, but I know I can come to you for reading recs. I will def be emailing you. Processing GRRM's choices is going to be a group effort for me, so we'll draw Debbie into our web. hehehe

I've got more time to read (and write) these days and I know there are a few of your stories I haven't read and commented on that I need to catch up on! But you know me, whatever you write, I try to be front seat. :)

And yes, let's drag Deb in. I love when we talk books (well talk anything really)

Lurking reader without an LJ here. I actually only just recently got into watching Buffy/Angel (I know! I know! It's like I'm a martian!) and I basically became a Cordelia/Angel fan before I even knew Cordelia/Angel was a thing. I think it's funny that the writers apparently never intended to take them there. I feel like David Boreanaz, at the very least, always sort of played it like Angel had an affection for/attraction to Cordelia. Or maybe he was the one with the affection/attraction and just not that strong an actor there at the beginning....ANYWAY...

I've been devouring every little bit of the ship the fandom has to offer for the last couple months and your fics were just like...a godsend! Like...Hallelujah chorus up in here. I've read them all! and all the ones on Livvie's list, all of Starlet...All of it. And I'm thirsty for more.

So yeah, totally appreciate what you mean about no time, etc, but what I'm getting at with this comment is if you DID just start throwing out a couple of PWPs every weekend or probably even if you just started writing like...Angel picking his nose and flicking his boogers at Cordelia....I, for one, would probably eat it up.

The fic, I mean. Not Angel's boogers.

I'm so sorry it took so long to reply to you, I didn't see this right away and when I tried to respond, I was, of course, interrupted. So here's my second attempt. :)

Thanks so much for the words of support, I AM trying to get back into writing and it's very nice knowing someone's out there waiting for it. :)

I also agree about DB. His acting skills weren't the best there in the beginning, and I think he was attracted to CC and very unable to stop it from leaking through to Angel. But as CC would say, his bad acting was our incredible gain. :)
