    Summary

    This is not a fic, but rather a meta analysis/discussion. People who are unfamiliar with either Hansel & Gretel or Harry Potter should still be able to appreciate the concepts discussed in this essay.

    "...and it's every abused kid's fantasy to be rescued in the way that Harry was in the first book. To be able to live full time in an abuse-free place, even when your abusive parents (or guardians) are doing everything in their power to prevent you from escaping, to have someone like Hagrid show up and save you. The Dursleys' abuse was also mainly psychological, controlling, etc and again is something I can relate to on some level. I can also relate to the fact that Harry was a very well-adjusted survivor, considering. That is how I have felt pretty much my whole life. Despite whatever child abuse I had to endure, I was... I was fine. I was not really all that scarred. I was lucky.

    Back to Hansel and Gretel...

    The fictional stepmother in this story is... the epitome of selfish. I saw so much of my own mother's personality in this character's actions and callousness. She is manipulative and not violently abusive - she simply locks the door to prevent the kids from being able to lay out the pebbles...."

    Summary

    In “Daemonicus,” the Satan-possessed doctor tells Doggett he’ll never be able to compete with Mulder. I think the bigger problem here is that Reyes is completely unequipped to compete with Scully. But at any rate, Doggett & Reyes, as a partnership, cannot even come CLOSE to competing with Mulder & Scully. "4-D" is not a bad plot. It's not badly written. But you just can’t watch something like “4-D” without thinking about how much better it would have been with Mulder and Scully in it.

    Summary

    Of all these little meta digressions, this is more truly an essay and piece of lit-crit. I had a chunk of last night and this morning to think about the structure and nature of how a story is told, and what your perception of the story does to your choices of through-lines. This is a lit-crit essay focusing on *Sherlock*, and using Dorothy Sayers and Agatha Christie as paradigmatic examples of two different approaches to the development of narrative spines and through-lines. Meta. Essay. Lit-crit. Analysis. Dry. Somewhat academic. Consider yourselves thoroughly warned. My inner honor student shineth forth.

    Summary

    So many great ideas for the Bang, one person wanted to costume for it. This cosplay idea inched itself into my head. I have 1/3 scale jointed dolls. Instead of humans, hey, I have a doll head that needs a scar-face make up *anyway*... Imagine if, at your basic science fiction fantasy cosplay convention, the people in those fannish snapshots were being portrayed by 1/3 scale dolls. Imagine if fans of the Losers were quoting favorite lines from the movie and explaining it to fans who were cosplaying for other movies?

    Summary

    Inevitable post-ep to Undercover Cloth, in which Tom takes Jack home, and they have sex. Or what the Hungarians call, "szex". It's a good thing mere bullets are no match for the healing power of lust.

    Summary

    This isn't a story; it's an invitation to a discussion. I can't get enough of talking about Brian Kinney, and I can't get enough of watching the show. This is my excuse to do both. Please, please, please join in - agree, disagree, tell me what you think Brian had for lunch - everything goes.

    This will go on for forever and hopefully trigger some story ideas (and ideas for my WIPs). No observation, thought or theory is too trivial or weird. Bring 'em on!
