    Things I think while re-reading stuff I wrote, a sampler:

    There are so many commas in this.  WHY are there so many commas in this?  Drowning in commas OOH LOOK A SEMICOLON.

    This sentence is very convoluted.  Where is the end of it?  If I turn my head upside down like an owl does it read any better?

    Hey, that thing I did there is really rather clever!  TOO BAD IT WASN’T ON PURPOSE.


    This, all this, is what makes betaing for you the best fun ever!!!! :D

    Because sometimes I actually insert notes like this IN THE FIC.  Self-snark, it is a way of life, and also conveniently entertainment for beta readers.

    As a beta I will tell you that I think too many commas is a better problem to have than too many semicolons. :-P It’s nice to see your butt on social media again!

    I don’t know what a-loquita and ziparumpazoo have been telling you, but don’t listen to them. *hides all the semicolons* 

    Hahahaha!

    i have a lot of secret hermione headcanons like. she was insufferable at muggle school as well and generally not well liked. she was the girl whose parents were both dentists and she read too many books and tried to talk to people in her class about them but they generally thought she was trying to show off. so when she gets into hogwarts she throws herself into the new culture and reads as many books as her parents will pay for, including her text books and several history books and when her parents refuse to buy the unabridged history of magic and also some legends, she seriously considers hiding out in flourish and blotts so she can just read it in the bookstore. but she wears her robes around the house and sends about forty letters to hogwarts asking questions about the school year and the course load and how the grading scale works and if they’re very sure they’ve told her everything she’s going to need. and her parents are worried about her but they had been already? because she has such a hard time making friends. and they hope she’ll be able to make friends at hogwarts.

    the first letter she sends them is full of descriptions of the castle and the sorting and background information on gryffindor and she mentions that she met neville and he’s very sweet, and the classes are so interesting, and she loves them very much! and the next few are also like that and kind of strained. and they suspect (correctly) that she again does not have friends.

    a couple weeks into november, she sends them a letter full of complaints about ron’s study habits and how he’s teaching her wizard chess and how both he and harry are very brave but also not very good students. and she tells them about hagrid, who is eight and a half feet tall and the nicest person she has ever met. 

    they stop worrying as much until they get a letter at the end of term saying that hermione has broken about 20 school rules and also congratulations your daughter scored over 100% on almost every exam.

  13. Sam and Jack Multimedia Awards - fiction nomination

    bethanyactually:

    samandjackawards:

    Dimensionless Quantities by mrspollifax has been nominated in the “Best Tag” category.

    "Sam/Jack, tag for SGA 3x10-11, The Return. Like the diagnostic she’s currently executing, like mortal peril, like coming home at the end of the day - everything about this situation ought to be a matter of course by now."

    Voting opens on September 8, 2014 - check out samandjackawards.com for more info.

    Even though this story that tulipsandtesseracts wrote is technically a Stargate Atlantis tag, it’s one of my FAVORITE Sam/Jack fics, largely because of this line: "All those years," she says softly into his skin, "when it was just, ‘Hi, sir, I’m glad you’re okay,’ I don’t know how we ever did that."

    *is very flaily*

    Thanks, Bethany!

     
  14. Y’all I got up on that exact same side of the bed yesterday, and I swear it wasn’t the grumpy side of the bed then.  But today it had magically changed.  Someone needs to invent me a grumpy side of the bed detector so I can avoid this problem in the future!!

    I’m pretty sure I used to write more, but then tumblr came along and exposed the lack of self-discipline lurking in my soul. 

    … oh, and USA gymnastics youtube channel.  That doesn’t help either.
