Nothing to post today. I'm still buried deep in edits. Oh, commas, how you hate me so!

So I thought, hey, been a while since I had a discussion. I couldn't think of anything serious so I decided: favorite genre? What's your favorite kind of book to pick up? A Harlequin romance? An old noir detective? Murder mysteries? Young adult? Contemporary? High fantasy? Swashbuckling pirates? High flying Space adventure? What are some of your favorite novels in said genre? Or do you just like to read a little bit of everything, like me? Though, to be fair, I don't read much in the way of romance.

Of all time, though, my favorite would have to be fantasy. My dad introduced it to me at a young age, Mom built upon that interest, RPG video games reinforced it, and writing fanfiction solidified the deal. I like to dive into other genres just to keep the muses from going stale, but 90% of my library is fantasy in some shape or form. I loved reading Dragonlance (Raistlin FTW) and Forgotten Realms. I laughed at the Land of Xanth series. I loved Terry Brooks and numerous others. But, ironically, my absolute favorite book is not fantasy. Go figure.

It's actually Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. I read this like once a month and it never ceases to entertain. The psychology of it always drags me in and every time I read it, I discover something new. It's the book that goes with me no matter where I move to, and my current copy of it is in such poor quality that I really ought to buy a new one. I think I'm missing a few pages now...

What about you?

I'm going to slip this in right before midnight. I've been jam-packed all day, believe it or not. But work is getting done, so I'm glad.

So... it's probably pretty obvious by now that I love me some manga, especially of the slashy variety. Whether it's explicit or not, if it's well told, well drawn, and well put together, I'll adore it. I also have my favorites. I could probably name ten off the top of my head. But I'm sitting here wondering... what about my f-list? Does anyone else read the slashy manga or am I on my own? What scanlation groups do you follow, if any, and what sorts of manga do you own?

Bleach OTP

Sorry, guys. There won't be a flash fiction Friday this week. I'm plum exhausted and I'm working for the next three solid days, so I won't have any time to write. Woe. I hope, with changes in my work situation, to have this all cleared up soon and Flash Fiction Friday should return on March 11th.

Today, I thought, why not talk about Bleach? And then, why not talk about Bleach pairings. From there, I went, how about Bleach OTP? We all got one, don't we? In fact, we probably have more than one, lol, but what's your main squeeze, the one pairing that makes you go sparkly-eyed?

... do you like it? Do you want it in your fics? Is it a pleasant bonus or a hit to the back button? Do you seek it out or avoid it as much as possible. And if you feel comfortable sharing, what are those kinks in fiction that make your cheeks burn as you giggle with glee? 

Personally, I'm a big fan of kink. The grittier and more realistic the better. I like it fun, I like it serious. I like it casual, I like it devoted. And I'm bit by bit trying all of the various kinks in my writing. All the ones I've heard of and even some discoveries.

What sort of things push my button? *laughs* It's more about what doesn't. But I'll try to keep this simple.

Happy Holidays everyone! No matter what religion you do (or don't!) celebrate, this time of year has a little bit of something for everyone. Whether it's just the jam-packed consumerism of Xmas or the Jesus-filled worship of Christmas or the bright candles of Hanukkah or all the other seasonal holidays I don't know anything about, there's a little something for everyone.

A fly-by posting since I'm squeezing this in work and a two-hour drive out-of-state to visit family. I'm sure we've all got something to do for the holidays, no matter what we believe, so I'll make this week.

This is an EASY question.

Who's your favorite superhero? Don't be shy!

What do I mean? 

What are those things, those nit-picks, those instant turn offs that make you say "hell no" to a story before you even read it? Fanfiction and Original fiction alike, my dears.

For today, we have an easy question: boxers, briefs, boxer briefs, commando, or, dare I say it, a thong? Which do you like to see your men wear, whether in real life, fanfiction, or original fiction.

For me, I'm all about the boxer-briefs. Boxers are too lose, briefs make me think of children, so boxer briefs are juuuuuust right. Love the way they hug the package and a nice pair of toned thighs. Love the way they reveal that dip of the hipbone. *whistles* 

So what about you?

So in my weeklong effort to get to know my readers better, today I ask the question: what kind of music do you like? This also clues into my ongoing effort to expand my musical interests.

Judging by everyone's requests during flash fiction fridays, I can pretty well guess what fandom it was that brought you to me. For most it is either Bleach or my original fiction. Which is fantastic.

Okay, so I randomly decided to do this earlier today. And well, everyone on my f-list benefits so I don't see how it's a bad idea.

Basically, I'm suffering through terrible, horrible, no good, very bad writer's block. So in an attempt to jumpstart my muses, I'm taking a week off from writing, editing, plotting, etc. Everything. Hoping that  absence makes the heart grow fonder. So to speak.

Three little words.

I love you.

Just three words. Three syllables. But they convey so much. Or are used to convey so much. Or are used far too often to hold any meaning anymore. It all depends on your perspective.

Pondering what to post today, I thought hey, how about a discussion? And then I pondered topics, and voila! Here ya go!

There's one thing I've been noting, something that's a personal preference of mine. I am actually not a big fan of romance stories. Why? Because they tend to be unrealistic and complete fantasies. Now, I know that's why many people do read them. They want the happy ending, the fantasy, the sickly-sweet words, and the sensation that everything works out okay in the end. That's just not my cup of tea. I'm perfectly content with a non-happy ending, so long as it's the logical ending and not merely drama/angst for the sake of drama. There has to be a reason for the non-happy ending, something must have happened during the length of the story to justify a non-happy ending.
