Kathryn’s sent me two chapters of The Professor’s Discretion to beta in as many weeks, and I just received yet another this week. *twirls giddily* I do so love a prolific writer! And it's seriously like she's climbed inside my head to figure out what themes and types of exchanges I love the most in this fandom and promptly tailored the whole fic just to make me squeeful.
Like, at the moment, it's not very shippy, it's a mentor/student kind of relationship and I so adore that dynamic. Of course I want it to end on a shippy note, but I hate fics that have Hermione and Snape inexplicably fall for each other within the first thousand words. She's 60,000 words in and it's still on a student/professor basis, with little moments here and there that make me flail like a crazy fangirl and my heart exploding with joy, but it's not inappropriate or tacky or anything. Just...brilliant. *sighs with pleasure*
My unhealthy yet oh-so-satisfying diet.
( This is technically a fail, considering what I'm doing to my body, but it makes me happy... )
I strolled into Jay Jays to kill some time while waiting for the bus…half an hour later, my bus was long gone and I was still trying on different tops. ^_^ It’s been a while since I’ve gotten excited over shopping, there’s been slim pickings here but I really liked the look of the cardi selection. Originally $40, they were on sale at $25- and they’re all exactly what I was looking for, it was just perfect for me! So I walked out of there with three brand new cardigans just in time for winter. ^_^
( Shopping stuff )
My father and I spent over two hours in each other's company yesterday , engaging in pleasant conversation and companiable speculation. :O It's unheard of! And what was responsible for this miracle? The series finale of Lost!
We haven't watched it in years, but since it was the 'last ever' ep, we decided to tune in, and the experience was quite- enjoyable, bizarrely. Obviously the moral of the story is that tv can bring together even people that are usually mutually antagonistic, and if I want to- *gasp*- enjoy my father's company, we just need to sit in front of the tv together. *nodnod* Too bad this was a once-in-a-lifetime event...
[Btw, if anyone can explain that mindfrak of a finale, I'd appreciate it- I still don't get what the hell was going on! Muke was like, 'We're still no wiser now than we were five years ago,' lol!]
Sucktastic list of fail.
I was supposed to hang out with a friend last Friday but that fell through. I knew I shouldn’t get my hopes up and yet I fall for it every time. I keep thinking I actually matter to someone and then I’m proven wrong. Obviously it’s not worth having friends in real life, it’s just one blow after another to my self-esteem. ;_; I tell myself I'm an awesome person and it's their loss if they don't recognize it, but then why is it always happening to me? Why am I always the one it's so easy to forget about and leave behind? *throws a pity party*
Safeway stole $5 from me! The first time I use my card on their self-serve machine and it bloody rips me off! *scowls* Mother and Ma have offered me money to make up for it, but it’s not the same. *pouts* It’s not that I don’t want their money [perish the thought!] but that it doesn’t make up for Safeway ripping me off. >:[
Nothing happened with that job interview. *sighs* It’s been ages, so I think they went with someone else. I’m telling myself it's a relief, but I'm kinda disappointed. There goes another chance to be the responsible, productive adult I know is hiding somewhere deep inside, oh well.
I only have one session left with Sonya. *sadface* I was really enjoying these past sessions and I’m going to miss her. >_<
Though she joked, ‘You could get a job and then come back and see me.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, having the job would probably cause the stress that would make me need to see you!’
She’s been so lovely, it’ll be sad after my last session. *pouts* But $150 an hour? Pfft. So not happening on my dime.
Only I am lame enough to get hostile with an old lady. Okay, technically, there was no overt display of hostility except for the daggers I shot from my eyes, but she had it coming. >:[
( I laughed afterwards, but man, I was seething with suppressed anger at the time )
As with any non-canon couple that faces the obstacle of a canon pairing, a lot of Snape/Hermione fics have to deal with the R/Hr issue. I've seen so many reasons for their breakup- he falls in love with someone else, he cheats on her, he's threatened by her ambitions, she's fed up with him living off her without pulling his own weight, etc. etc.
The most unrealistic I've come across is the wife-beater!Ron stereotype, wtf? I don't like this kid, but if one of the two was going to be physically abusive, it'd be the chick that sent a flock of magical canaries to peck the living crap out of him and left him with wounds for weeks afterwards, right?
But the best resolution I've ever seen to their so-called 'relationship', without demonizing or vilifying either character, allowing them to remain friends afterwards, is from a fic called Arachne. It's also the funniest and most in character...!
( Snippet of Hilarious Awesome )
Bwahaha! Epic! As much as I don't like this pairing, I really can't stand it when shippers go Ron!bashing and make it all bitter and ugly [even if that is actually in character] because I just want everyone to be friends, instead of ruining years' of history. So having the break-up due to her Animagus form...hee! :D
CM 5 x 15.
( Was anyone else going WTF at this scene? )
I call it the Hotch!gasm. :P
( Emily/Hotch silliness )
:P What? Canon gives me so little, don't blame me for blowing this out of proportion! ^_~

Day 03 - Your favourite new show (aired this TV season)
10 Things I Hate About You. A really good show about teens. It doesn't take itself too seriously and it's hilarious. Too bad it's cancelled. *pouts*
Snurched from vorquellyn.
Leave me a comment saying, 'Live long and prosper,' and I will comment back with a picture of the fictional character that most reminds me of you. Then post the same in your journal.
