Am almost finished the Ender's Game
fic I owe for the Apocalyptothon. Val and Petra don't seem to want to have sex, although I had to practically restrain Peter to keep him from jumping his sister. Would desperately love a beta.

, who gakked it from neotama
: The Regender
. It swaps the genders of all the characters in any fic (or any website at all, for that matter). Not all that effective on my fic, as it tends to get confused with names that are also words like Dawn and Faith, and turns Darla, Dawn, and Drusilla all into Davids (creating the potential for much confusion) but is much fun nonetheless. Also it underscored for me how important role reversal and other types of gender subversion are in Buffy
in general and my fic in particular: with the genders swap, much of my fic felt flatter, less original, less exciting.( Fic Writing Meme )( Music Movie Meme: My Music on Shuffle )
Shows how well the human mind can find patterns even in randomness, and construct a story out of anything
? (Anyone read Calvino's Castle of Crossed Destinies
lately?)( Dr. Who Meme )
If anyone requests a commentary of my fic
I will, as always, write it. May do one anyway--haven't decided yet.
