question

Saw this from moreteadk and decided to take the test. I was averaging 97-98 wpm listening to Sarah McLachlan, but then my iTunes random hit Gym Class Heroes's "The Queen and I" and I hit my high of:

Lesson: music that pumps you up also hypes up your fingers!

All my D/G people are following round 4 of dgficexchange, yes yes? Featuring layout by twinklepug, sign ups start in about a week!

So, also got a question for you: Which of your own fics/art are you most proud of? Follow-up: Which fic/art of yours do most readers like? Same fic, y/n? I was going to ask which one is your favorite, but that might not be the one you're most proud of :P (It isn't for me!) Feel free to link me!

I've been wondering this for a while. I have this theory that the one you're proud of isn't usually the one most people seem to like. Example: The Barest Hint of Lemon is the fic I'm still getting reviews for. But, for many reasons, it's not what I'd put up as my best work. It's not that I don't like it, it's just...not what I'm most proud of.

On a related note, without a doubt, my absolute WORST has to be this D/G I wrote in 2004 called "Love, Ginny." Oh my god. It was worse than some of the earlier BSB fics I wrote. Best thing ff.net ever did was wipe my account clean and destroy that fic. Except like a year later I found out streetscribbles saved it. And then her computer got wiped and I thought now it's truly gone. And then she told me she somehow recovered it. Love, Ginny: The Fic That Just Wouldn't Die. Morbid fascination compelled me to ask her to send me the fic, to see if it was as bad as I remembered. It was so much more than that, I cannot say. For a while, before she sent it to me, I was debating whether I should put it up as a "how far I've come" thing, but for the good of all, that thing will never be up for public viewing.

HAHAHA, Blair has the best lines when she's angry: "It wasn't because I like his natural musk."

Well this Wednesday (Tuesday for Canada) is the last episode filmed. Soooo that's that. :\

AGREE! I think Blair is GREAT :D Script ppl give Dan the best lines overall, but Blair is hilarious in just her facial expressions and everything!

Did you know that some people at the Television Without Pity boards think Dan is annoying in always spewing out his holier than thou attitude, because he's poor-er?? LAME. Dan makes good points all the time and he clearly brings the best out of Serena, so that's that.

ANYWAY!!! Dan has the witty going for him, but I don't like his stuttering/rambling quirk. :\

No I didn't know that! BUT I wouldn't be surprised. TWOP ppl are CUTTING sharp. One part where I didn't like Dan though was when he went all 180 on Serena when he found out she slept with Nate. It's like, hello, you've been on ONE DATE w/ her. How is this your business. That was his one holier-than-thou moment. Otherwise, I like that Dan grounds Serena!

HAHAHA YEAH!! It's WEIRD especially when he's also like, really witty at the same time.
