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.

VMARS RULES. I didn't hate S2 either (not as much as some other peole, jeezy creezy), but S3 really killed it for me. But I can't resist a high school/college freshman sleuth. ♥ And Logan Echolls is the best TV boyfriend EVAR.

FNL rocks GG though; it's got so much emotion in a real-life drama show. I love it.

PS - Blair's headbands? AWESOME.

DEF! Like, I found all the seasons really entertaining - there were lame eps, but even when they were lame, it was so well done. All the COLOR, the music, etc. That just made it a fun show to watch, visually stimulating and stuff. DO NOT LIKE THE FINALE THOUGH. Rob Thomas did WRONG by the show w/ that.

Have you ever watched Gilmore Girls? haha I know B doesn't like that show, but the Logan on that show who dates Rory/Alexis Bledel? BEST BOYFRIEND. He was in a lot of ways like Logan Echolls actually. Except with all the murder charges and stuff XD

I definitely like FNL to GG - FNL's just got so much going on with it, it doesn't feel so pointless.

Blair's porcelain doll grandma dresses with ruffles and lacey collars! :DD

MAN I should've friended you earlier! We could've fangirled over VMars!

Sadly I never caught onto Gilmore Girls. :\ But I know fandom is divided up between Rory and... Milo Vas;ldkfj;alskj and Matt Czurasdkfj.

Let me know what you think of Gossip Girl tonight. I caught the Canadian broadcast dl last night, but I wanna talk about it with someone...

I know! I had no idea we shared a bunch of other fandoms/tv shows!

Rory and... Milo Vas;ldkfj;alskj and Matt Czurasdkfj.
HAHAHAHAHHAHA I didn't even try to spell it. But, yes. I was really split too. Both were really charming, witty guys. Except Milo/Jess had some behavioral/attitude issues...on the other hand, Matt/Logan had attitude problems too. They were actually, in retrospect, a lot alike except for the fact that Milo/Jess was bad boy booknerd and Matt/Logan was rich spoiled brat.

I MISSED IT! I gotta download, but my internet is SOOO slow right now. I'll def message you when I finally watch it though!
