Haven't made a public/fandomy post in a while so here goes!
Has anyone ever watched that show "The Moment of Truth"? I just saw about ten minutes of it and I can't get my head around how stupid it is. For those who are unaware, here's what I understand the premise is: someone agrees to answer X number of obscenely personal questions while connected to a lie detector. The show then "randomly" selects 1/2X of those questions to ask them on air. If they answer everything honestly (and basically don't chicken out by refusing to answer or lying) they get half a mill. Questions include "have you cheated on your current girlfriend?" and other life-shattering inquiries. I just... I don't get it. Okay, so you could win half a million (before taxes) -- but you also potentially destroy all your interpersonal relationships. Why? Why?
And of course the audience boos angrily whenever someone answers "yes" to a bad question, and of course there's a woman who goes "THAT ANSWER IS ... [insert unneccessarily long pause for dramatics].... TRUE..." and of course the show picks all the questions where the answer was embarassing.
Did I mention I hate reality TV and game shows?
Except The Mole. Fuck yes, the Mole was so awesome.
What else? For anyone who's seen Hairspray
or had to listen to the credits music constantly for five months
and watches Doctor Who: this is so comically appropriate
Also the first chapter of Breaking Dawn is failtastic. All I want from Breaking Dawn now is for Jacob and Tanya to hook up and be totally awesome, leaving Edward and Bella to wallow in their
marital bliss. And lawl, northern Canada. Sup Jake?
Whatever muse I once had has apparently died a violent death. It's like pulling teeth to write five coherent sentences, I swear. It's basically to the point I don't even want
to write. I don't know, but it sucks. I also fail at writing commitments because of it -- I didn't finish anythingbutgrey
's birthday fic on time, I've owed pirate_smile
a letter for like ninety years, and I only just finished the letter I've owed latine
for one hundred years. Not to mention Silly Love Songs is rolling in a pit of failure, haha.
I also mean to write a Harry/Hermione fic for afterthree
's "someting unexpected" challenge, because coming from me there's nothing more unexpected than an uncanon shippy fic about the Trio
Anyway, in the spirit of attempting to kick myself into gear, here's a meme: Reply with a character or pairing i'm familiar with and i'll write a few sentences of fic.
Note the "few sentence" part; I promise nothing complete or whole in any form, I just kinda wanna... force myself to write stuff. Yeaah. And if you happen to give me a Twilight pairing, please note that I have never, ever written Twilight before because that would mean I'd have to actually put thought into Smeyer's characters.
