"Great art is not that which creates something utterly new, but that which takes something we have seen before and forces us to look at it in a new way. Fanfiction, therefore, is not the lowest form of literature, but, indeed, the highest."
(If you write fanfiction, please copy and paste this into your profile.)
Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language.

Where I Am Right Now (What/When/Where you can expect me to be writing):
I am now on Archive of Our Own (*Applause*), this means that almost all of my stories are going to be cross-posted there soon (*Cheering*). My nomen operationis is TrivialPursuit.
I'm watching Mr Selfridge and am madly in love with Henri and Agnes (Oh my good god! *Fans face*) and it is quickly becoming my favourite period drama (Downton Abbey having fallen out of favour due to the rather trigger-happy nature of the writing staff). So expect more on that front.
In other news, Of Hills and Cable Television is somewhat stalled right now so that might take a while to come out.
The Triviaglass Avengers 'Verse is a collaboration with glassfacet. There's some stuff posted on her profile so check it out.
I am the founder and sole member of Lackeys, Minions, and Henchpeople Anonymous. We strive to honour those nameless minions whose entire life is relegated to a shot or line depicting their death, and whose sole purpose is to make the hero look awesome against a bunch of commando/evil minion-types or make the villain look more dastardly by the mass carnage he has inflicted upon the hero's ranks. So we seek memoriam for these fallen martyrs to plot, recognition for all they have suffered at the hands of the more important characters in the name of a good story.
For any of you who haven't figured this out, I'm a sucker for a good romance, preferably passionate, forbidden, and unlikely to end well. My heroines will be at least slightly unhinged and, more likely then not, violent. None of these things mean, however, that I'm anything less then what I am, and that is a stickler for grammar and spelling (Only British please, no pajama or mold). So if you see any mistakes in my writing please feel free to PM me and point them out to quell my inner neurotic self. My feelings won't be hurt. I promise.
Here's me ranting to the Powers That Be for a moment:
Can you please make the Doc Manager accept Pages documents for those of us who hate Word with the fiery passion of a thousand suns that makes us own computers that dislike Word as much as we do? Please?
Rant Number 2:
I just saw the American version of Being Human and was reminded forcefully of not only why Watching American Remakes is a Very Bad Idea, but also but of covers of songs, you know the ones. Most of the time it's a goddamn Classic that shouldn't be touched with a fifty meter pole, yet some moron decides that 'Yes, let's remake this Classic Piece of Musical Brilliance'. And sometimes it's not even that bad, yet you know, compared to the original, the cover is a sham. But I digress, the American version made me weep into my tea, it is an abomination, an aberration that must be culled from my memory to keep my beloved Being Human intact in the lofty spot it holds in my estimation of television entertainment.
Aidan is in no way, shape, form, or fairground mirror a suitable replacement for Mitchell, he is, to paraphrase one watcher, 'the Football Player of the Damned to Mitchell's Don Juan [of the Damned]'. Sally is a slightly mind-numbing ditz, though she could easily grow the proverbial beard and become monumentally less painful to watch. Plus there are so many improbabilities and general ridiculousness (A recovering blood addict a surgical nurse, really? Vampires with super-strength and super-speed who don't need to eat, does this not remind anyone of an equally torturous series of teen books from a few years ago?). I felt sorry for Lauren in her situation, but I find myself cheering at Rebecca's misfortune, she's a bitch, not a weak and scared young woman who's been tossed unceremoniously into a world she does not understand by someone who uses then abandons her.
The show is lacking all the amusing clichés the vampires used that made them so hilarious yet much scarier they they would have been, instead they come off as being slightly pseudo-bondage chic in the most forced way imaginable. In most cases the delivery of any possibly redeeming lines is flat and lifeless, almost as if the actors are simply reading off cards. Most of the lines and shots are direct or almost direct lifts from the original series, and yet they still manage to turn this thing into a pseudo-soap opera/Vampire Diaries/Twilight type show instead of a search for what it means to be human. It's actually kind of painful to watch.
Ignore the remake. Watch the original, Love Annie, Mitchell, and George. Don't judge a series by its remake.

I apparently have to put this in for legal purposes, so here it is: I will not pursue legal action in the instance that my plot/original character(s) or something resembling my plot/original character(s) appears on the media outlet I am writing fanfiction for. Also, I don't own any of the fandoms I write for.
