So...I figured I should post a little rundown of my livejournal stuff before I start posting fanfic, just to see how everything works. Just so everyone knows, this journal will mostly be devoted to very adult Jeeves/Wooster fanfic. There will perhaps be some Harry Potter, and maybe some Phantom of the Opera as well. You can pretty much guarantee that everything will be SLASH. Yes, I am a slasher.
Exceptions: If I write Hunchback of Notre Dame fic, it WILL be a Frollo/Esmeralda pairing. I'm also planning on writing a FernGully fic. There will not be pairings, as my favorite characters are Hexxus and Batty and, well...ewww. Noncorporeal beings and animals do NOT need to go together...
...which brings me to my first rant:
WHY DO FANFIC AUTHORS INSIST ON PAIRING THINGS WITH NO GENETALIA?! Has anyone else witnessed this phenomenon? Why do they think I want to read about the romantic entanglements of Winnie the Pooh characters? Why would Ron/Draco/Harry/whoever get so sexually frustrated that the Giant Squid and the Whomping Willow sound like good bedfellows? Why must Snape use pancakes to masturbate at the breakfast table? Since when do school subjects (i.e. Math and English) get to get laid? Yes, I have seen all of these things happen, and yes, a little part of my sould dies every time that I do.
Now, if you are one of those people who writes this stuff, could you please explain why? They say that humans most fear what they don't understand. Well, I don't understand, and I am very, very afraid. Perhaps a little enlightenment could help me to get over my squicks. This also goes for all mpreg and necrophilia fics. I just want to know what is appealing. Virtual Chef Jeff cookies to anyone who can persuasively explain the appeal to me. For those who don't know, Chef Jeff cookies (from Mount Holyoke College) are about the size of the human head. So if you want a virtual one, explain mpreg, necrophilia, non-genitaled character pairings...oh, and anything involving, ahem, "bathroom activities."
Well, that's my fanfic rant! You may see a few of these because I like to read fanfic summaries when I am not studying my butt off. Yes, I am that big of a nerd.
Until next time,
