my guilty pleasure....fanfiction

just want to say, rockin music today.
right now, 'welfare problems' by randy.
good song. nice chorus line.
guitar, drums, both good.

janet...
yes brad?
i've got something to say.
uh huh?
i really love the...skillful way
you beat the other girls to the bride's bouquet.

on another note, i got a couple things to get off my chest.
i....really like fanfiction.  i know i know i know! it's full of self-indulgence, bad writing, gratuitous sex and really weird character pairings. and don't get me started on crossovers. but i like it anyway. i like reading stories where xander realizes he cherishes a deep and heartfelt love for spike, i love it when harry potter is Sorted into slytherin, and i love fanfictions of sophomore english reading material. (*cough*lord of the flies*cough*)
please don't hit me.


and, if you also like fanfiction and don't mind slash (which is all i seem to read, for some reason--guess it's partly the novelty and partly the fact that it's usually so unlikely in the stories that you really do have to be creative to work it in. at least, if you have any kind of decent plot. which is generally a good thing to have.)--i said if you like fanfiction and don't mind slash, here are some memorable stories i've read:
irresistible poison (by rhysenn--not sure of the spelling there)
cowardice (look on ff.net under lord of the flies)
no power on earth (on allaboutspike.com)

and i heard something about a fanfiction where chicken boo plays sweeney todd. it sounds amazing, whether it's well written or not. i haven't read it yet.

Have you heard of a manga called "Legend of Basara". Not many people have heard of it. Here's a link to a website about it if you might be interested.

i did check this out, and it seems cool. reminiscent of many similar stories, of course (mulan, the rose of versailles, blah blah blah...) where the heroine has to pretend to be a boy to save the world and whatnot, and ends up falling in love with some fellow soldier/enemy soldier. cool stories, those. i've always had a secret desire to be mulan. (maybe not her specifically. but you know, go out and fight for some honorable reason and have to disguise myself as a boy or just get to be a cool girl warrior person. like alanna. or the girl from a book called 'the blue sword' who didn't have to pretend to be a boy. ah, the dreams of my youth. who'm i kidding? still a youth. oh well.)
