So I've been meaning to advertise this here a bit, but kept forgetting...

For those of you into fanfiction, there's a new alternative to the Pit and Adult!Pit which has sprung up.  It's actually MUCH, MUCH easier to navigate and use, and has a better style, imho.  Plus you have the option of having multiple pseudonyms run off the same account, a great search feature, and no lame-ass rules about posting adult work.  This site is called Archive of Our Own.  It's still in beta, but it's getting better and better all the time (it has grown MASSIVELY since I first started using it, and it's getting new members every day.)  There is some top-notch fiction there, too. So... check it out! :3

And yes, I'm "Covenmouse" there, too.

EDIT:   sandy noted that they're on invite-only, so i checked into it.  If you're interested in getting one, drop me a note, mention it on aim or whatever, and I'll see what I can do about getting some invites sent around. :3

That said, have another meme:

Reply to this post, and I'll tell you one reason why I like you. ♥

I'll preface this by stating that I have never been good at labeling parts of sentence structure.  After looking and reading over several articles on the subject, I have come up with the following conclusion: huh?

So, I'm turning to you guys.

Anyone here good with grammar? )

Reposting from [livejournal.com profile] darlinleo 's journal, but it's worth it:


Why do I Write? )


~Elie Wiesel, born 1928 and taken as a child to the first of many concentration camps. He was liberated from Buchenwald in April 1945. This particular piece was published originally in the New York Times Book Review, April 14, 1986.

Today seems to be the day I find a bunch of stuff that's so true and touching it nearly brings me to tears.  Or I'm just amazingly hormonal today. IDK.
