Wandered out to see the fireworks. It was a big crowd on my side of the harbor, too - I'm estimating a hundred folks, all standing in the wind and the cold. (According to the weather service it's just above freezing. According to my ears, it's well below.)

Good fireworks, nice start to the year, I'm hoping.

This last few months have been not as good as they could be, but I've been writing, and as it's the first in a good half the world, I'm going to go ahead and admit to various fics behind the cut.

One of my favorite authors on AO3 has an LJ, I've discovered belatedly, and has recently posted a wonderful essay On Character Death which had me laughing, but left me thinking. If you're a writer of fanfiction (or other things) or for that matter just a reader/viewer who has noticed how many times fictional characters bite the dust and wonder why, you'll enjoy the read.

Trust me!

There's a neat article here: http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/03/26/a-picture-of-language/ about diagramming sentences.

I wasn't taught grammar for the first 8 years of school beyond "verb" "noun" "adjective" "adverb" level. I learned what I knew in Spanish classes (and later Latin.) Then we moved to Omaha and in 9th grade I was suddenly in a class full of people who had been diagramming sentences since the third grade. I thought it fun, but I never really learned the nuances. I still am unclear on gerunds and participles. But it never occurred to me to apply the diagrams to learning other languages.

Interesting...

If you have ever watched "Without A Clue" and liked it you MUST GO AND READ THIS FIC.

The Timelord has nudged out Sherlock. But if you've got a moment to decide between Aragorn and Severus...

Vote On!

A professor looking at the Victorians and their coded ways of talking about sex in literature. Which is cool.

But oh, my gosh, look at the USEFUL LINKS down the side of the page! *drool*

I actually wrote something lately! Then I went and submitted the things I wrote to and couldn't tell anybody about any of them except for my brilliant beta [livejournal.com profile] janeturenne. Of course, the good thing about giving is that you receive too, so let's start with the prezzies I got:

For Holmestice I was given Most Peculiar which is a lovely character study of Watson by [livejournal.com profile] lelek.

For Yuletide I was given In This House Everything Is Twice, by Jay Tryfanstone, which is based on the book The Children of Green Knowe by Lucy M. Boston.

And then there were the things I wrote for other people: )

But I didn't have time or brains to make it shorter. Follow the link if you want to see a ficlet: Holmes/Watson, in response to a very pretty picture over here.

eta, the lj entry no longer has the pic, but it is here if anyone is curious.
