Just a run of the mill update.

I added two partials to my fic site, these are stories I walked away from. I marked them in Purple for easy finding.


The Sidhe once again proves that the Irish had it right with The Other Side of Time: And All That We've Won. (9)

Last but not least I'm going to comment on something crossada75 said over at PPMB.


The members of Daria fandom are a finite resource that should be intent on maintaining their health if for no other reason than reproduction of new Daria fans. New fans are going to become rarer and rarer as time goes by. This can only be offset by a friendly doorman being there for the stragglers who discover Daria on the web, standing there with an umbrella and a cup of hot cocoa inviting them in from the rain. New blood is out there and they will come but it would be nice to make sure some of the old timers are still around to greet them.

Welcome to the weekend.


I won't be doing much writing this evening. The new season of Doctor Who starts here in the US tonight.


But BlackHole and NightGoblyn both posted updates to PPMB so go read them and pitchfork NightGobyln concerning his Heather/Damsel Chronicles. Then we need to find LSauchelli and chain him to his keyboard after watching all the Daria shows upside down.


Hope everyone has a good start of the weekend.

A little truth.

I just posted some updates, where else but the PPMB. I have to recommend checking out the Daria Fandom blog II through that handy dandy link to the right. Maybe I'm reading it wrong but it sure seems like TAG has a really important message up today.

Also there is a new Iron Chef by DigiSim and Solaris plans to review some fanfiction. 


Now to discuss something. I'm dyslexic and considered nonfunctional (what that means I'm really not sure).  Basically when most people see a word, they see letters, the parts of the word. For me it's a solid, I'm unable to break words and even sentences down into their parts or structure.  For me the finished product is all there is.

I am lucky enough that my dyslexia only effects output, meaning I can read perfectly and understand what I'm read but I cannot find mistakes even if their obvious.

If you go down that page to a section called Reading and spelling you will see several bullet points that anyone familiar with my stories will recognize right off.

This isn't a cop out, I rather enjoy when some people like Derek and DigiSim for example point out the usually humorous mistakes. (PLEASE Don't you dare stop doing it.) My work needs all the help it can get.

I'm offering up this information as an explanation, I'm not lazy, or uncaring when it comes to editing my work. I just can't see these kinds of mistakes. This also means that I'm completely at the mercy of my word processing program and I'm sure you all know how fickle they are.


Sleep tight because the bed bugs will bite.

Back to the salt mine.

Another weekend gone and I'm more tired now than I was on Friday. Well I did get some updates done.

Question time. Lets say someone started a story based loosely off some disturbing news reports from a year or so before and then just as they got around to starting it, the same thing happened again. How long should said person wait before posting the story.


Any way Doggieboy updated a story and even if it wasn't A Little Vacation is was good. So go check out The Cynic, The Fashionista and The Jackass Part 13


Hope everyone had a good weekend.
