I stumbled across several SO CALLED fan fiction stories over the weekend that were nothing more than a ten chapter droning on (and on, and on, and on.....) about all the shops the main character went to what they picked out and how much it cost. [Yes they wrote fan fic based on the "I'm going on a picnic and I am taking..." car game.] The only thing different about these 'stories'; were the author's names, what was bought, and the name of the lead character. Binns 'Goblin Wars' lectures are more riveting.
I was bored out of my mind so badly by the horrifically dreadful writing I got a good 12 hrs sleep. :D
One of my previous insomnia cures was to watch the movie "Brother Sun, Sister Moon".
It's a cinematic visual & audio masterpiece about the life of St. Francis of Assisi, directed by Franco Zeffirelli and released in 1972. Unfortunately it is also one of the DULLEST movies I've ever seen. I first watched it because I'm a huge Donovan fan and he wrote/recorded the music. While I love the music, there's nudity and I'm interested in history and religion . . .THE MOVIE IS DULL, DULL, DULL. (did I mention that it's DULL???) I've yet to get my grubby mitts on a official CD, or LP of Donovan's recording.
Later I'll bitch about
1.) Ship pirates [Writers who start a story with your fave OTP and mid-story switch to THEIR OTP (which you hate) without warning.]
2.) Fudd talkers [the entire story is written the way Elmer Fudd talks.]
3.) Screaming Sailor Scouts [THEIR ENTIRE STORY IS WRITTEN IN BOLDFACE ITALICS UNDERLINED CAPS LOCK!!!! so it looks like they are screaming like the girls in Japanese Anime.]
4.) Lost Space Bar [howevertheyarepostingtheirstoryitdoesno
5.) [If you don't get it......]
