Pit of Voles and other adventures  
Gah. Fanfiction.net you SUCK like a sucky thing! I went to fix one of my older stories, after they stripped out all the scene break markers. Just doing that much made me sick of it. So tedious! I thought I didn't have too many though, since most of my newer things I used their pukey horizontal rule anyway--

Until I remembered all 42 Frakking Chapters of Distorted Reflections. And my Oh-so-carefully-consistent use of -*- for ALL our scene breaks.

FRAK.

Well, that's going to get fixed, some time between "eventually" and "never".

-*-

(uses -*- just out of spite)


BSG Season 4, Episode 5 Promo pics !



So Cally sees this little scene between Tyrol and Tory? Does she think Tyrol's having an affair and that's why she chases him around and finds out THE BIG SECRET? Or is this scene AFTER she does that um thing, and Tory's trying to comfort him? (if you know, don't tell me - don't want to know)

I think Tory needs to sleep more. How they made a woman as beautiful as Rekha Sharma look so stressed and haggard is kind of amazing. Embrace your inner Cylon, woman! Be Proud!

Zarek hey! And some rather interesting-looking confrontation/discussion between him and Apollo.

And I see Nicky's at the RolyPoly stage. hee.



-*-

Some of you have cats. Some dogs. Me? I have...

a mealworm!

Or more properly the larval stage of the Darkling Beetle. But everybody knows them as mealworms.

It's technically the Rugrat's but I care for it, of course. He got it from school as a lesson in biological change and transformation, etc.

I constantly think he's dead. He's not; he's just the laziest mealworm on the face of the Earth. Wiki says they're nocturnal, so that's why he sleeps all day. But he sleeps a lot, and soundly too. I turned him over the other day and it took a full ten seconds for his wee feet to twitch. But he's getting fat, so hopefully he'll cocoon himself soon and then I don't have to worry about whether he's alive or not.

Meanwhile the Mealworm is all pissed that I keep poking him, I'm sure. "Stupid damn human, can't she tell I'm SLEEPING!"

I'd post pics but, he's just not that cute. :)

Seriously? When did the Pit of Voles change their section break formatting? I always use * for that. *thinks about fic loaded there*

Crap. :(

recently. Because strange foreign characters MIGHT not work with future upgrades of the software/server apparently. So they stripped out any non alphanumeric characters. It BLOWS.

They've been subtly getting rid of more and more, but the most recent upgrade deep-sixed 'em. (apparently. I was poking some older things and still finding old scene breaks, so maybe they quietly reneged on it).

It may depend on what characters you use. But looking through mine - I tend to use some variety of * and as far as I can tell, they're all gone. Of course if they'd told me the (---) turns into HR in doc formatting BEFORE, at least I could've done that for the epic. grrr.

Because ff.net doesn't have a reputation bad enough yet, now many old stories are going to be nigh unreadable.

YAH. They suck. I just stuck a note in my author profile saying that, ya, I knew it was all fucked. But there's no WAY IN HELL I'm going to fix it.

I bet there's a lot of those comments, since I did one too! I think I'm also going to put the LJ addy to the version here of DR, so there's at least an option of decent formatting for that.

It irked me when you mentioned it - but it irks me more having realized how it totally frelled my epic of epicness. SUCKITUDE!

Mmmm. Tory.
