I just saw what Caitlin Moran did (regarding Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman) and I am so incredibly sad for the fanfiction writer.

I am just so sick of people shaming other individuals.  And of everyone shitting on fandom.  And of judging shit they don't understand or respect.

I could write a whole essay on this, but mostly I'm just too sad.

Story Wordcount: 1,866
Disclaimer: I don't own anything. No libel intended.
Summary: Josh shares a movie, George shares his thoughts. Inspired by Josh's tweet regarding Remember the Titans and (aimmyarrowshigh) V's requests for Union J fic.
Notes: Title inspired by Stephanie Perkins' fabulous book, Anna and the French Kiss.  This has not been beta'd, so I apologize for any glaring mistakes or inconsistencies.  I am only just getting into this fandom, so this may seem awkward...  Please give me any feedback or comments you might have!  Also, this is a birthday present for aimmyarrowshigh, who is positively delightful and inspiring. Go send her happy wishes!

The door opens to a wide-eyed and grinning Josh, and George can't help but smile back.Collapse )

"'I am her friend,' is vastly different than 'I have been friendzoned.' One is a statement of friendship, and the other is a statement of sexual rejection couched in a term that implies the woman doesn't know what is best for her." © feministzilla, via aimmyarrowshigh

I am currently working on my senior project - it's not very well developed at this point, but I'm going to focus mainly on young women in America.  I'm not sure of the details yet, but I'm really excited to see how it turns out.  I would very much like to have more discussion surrounding sexism, misogyny, feminism, et cetera, but I have yet to get to it.  I'm so busy; I'll need to schedule out time to get to it.

So, last night I had to cheer and that was dull, but at least it was basketball. Angela was there because her boyfriend plays for the team we were playing and I told her that she needed to find me someone to talk to because. And she delivered. Bless Angela and Phil. She got me Phil's friend's number. We've been talking like all day. He's name's Zachary and he's cute and nice and oh my gosh what am I doing with myself? This is uncharted territory. He doesn't really live close close to me, but he doesn't live forever away. So I'm hoping that if we keep talking we can hang out and stuff? That'd be lovely.

I probably sound ridiculous right now. I do not care.

I've decided that to ensure a bit of structure in my life for the beginning of this year [and because I've spent the past two days watching television and lurking about LJ and DW], I need some goals for the month.

monthly goals, et ceteraCollapse )

You can share your wishlist - it is alright to want nice things. It's not necessary to do something extraordinary to deserve a gift. It is okay to accept that sometimes people may want to give you a present. They might want to do something for you, or it may make them feel good, or just because they can. Enjoy it!

It is alright to not give someone something. People have different circumstances - you may not have to money, you may not have the time, or you may not have a particularly close relationship with someone. It's fine! Don't feel bad. It's not necessary.

I don't know everything there is to know about knitting - yet.  But I can share what I do know.  So, here goes!

Looks like I'll be spending another New Year's at home, alone. My parents are going out (I think) and my brother (my little brother) has been invited to a friend's party. And me? Well, most of the kids my age are getting drunk, Mike's sick, and I haven't heard from Caitlin... So, it looks like it's me and the dog tonight. Oh well...
