weekendy things  
We all went see Wreck-It Ralph on the weekend - obviously Kid LOOOOOOOVED it. It's very cute. Because this is how my head works, I looked for Tron references and didn't catch one. And yet it so clearly belongs in the same universe. So ever since we weatched, I've been musing random crossovers about that -- Calhoun leading a resistance to Clu when he invades Heroes Duty... Iso's fleeing into the other games... hee.

Apparently fate was very much against my seeing Mumford and Sons this weekend - not only did I miss all the tix for the two public shows, I also didn't win any for the other two private shows the radio stations were giving away. So I'll just have to watch the webcast then. FINE, UNIVERSE, no concerts for me this week. I get it.

I've written 5K of the wrong story. Er, self, that Big Bang is not writing itself.

I got a comment that loved Poison Rain but said I had terrible dialogue. I suppose it cancels out the person who loved it, as outliers. Still it's a bit depressing, when I actually like what I did. :/

Crossposted from DW There are comment count unavailable comments over there. Feel free to comment wherever.

Fuck 'em. The dialog for Poison Rain was just fine. If anything, it was more spare than you could have gone, given Thor's ridiculous high diction in the films and comics.

I'm really not sure how a person can like the story as much as she professes to and not like how I wrote them speaking. Dialogue is like 80 percent of the story! (although I gather the spareness of it was her problem, she called it robotic among other things. SO. Just because they're not big on contractions, I guess.) BAH

Luckily this review apparently got me some karma or someone else read the comment and was inspired to write an extra nice one after it, so I feel better. :)

Thanks for the reassurance!

It's hard enough to LISTEN to the over-embellished Asgardian diction at times. But reading it? Especially if someone's making a speech? God, kill me now. :P

yeah, none of that FORSOOTH for me - if they can speak English at all, there's no reason they got totally stuck in the 1500's. lol

Glad you had a good weekend, but sorry about that sucky review. *Hugs*
