Im not going to name names. Im not. Im not. Im going to keep telling myself this until Im sure the name wont slip.

Ok, i have ranted before, at great length, about how, in one particular comm i belong to, the number of people who think it is ok and perfectly acceptable to post "IVE HAD A BAD DAY. WRITE ME A FIC ABOUT THIS AND THIS. *cry cry cry*"

most of those people need to DIE.

however, we have now come to a completely different level of psychotic MEMEMEMEness.

In a very recent post in this comm i will not name, someone just posted a "fic challange."

its her 21st birthday! So she wants 21 fics! sign up now! and make sure they're on time! because she wants PRESENTS! *giggles vacantly*

what.the.fuck. people.

look, it would be one thing to say, hey, its my birthday! im issuing a birthday challange where you can write about these characters on their birthdays! have fun!

no. no. this isnt that.

and you know, that wouldve been bad enough..but then..she started posting some fic recs.

and while, im flattered, as at least 3 of my fics are on the recs (although im not sure she realizes im all the same person, because there is a different name i use beside each one), i start looking more carefully, because, hey! recs!

...and then i realize it.

"This is one of the darkest, saddest, creepiest things written about the relationship between . I wrote it!"

"I wrote these as my first fics! The character's voice is beautiful"


*twitch*

im sorry, but..does anyone else expect to see, "My mom says its the best thing she's ever read!" after any of these?

Look, i dont mind personal reccing, in a personal journal, or if someone has said, hey, name some fics about .

but..in a recs comm? number one, i think its tacky to rec yourself. TACKY.

and number two, if you rec yourself, you dont tell how AWESOME it is. you just dont. you can say you are proud of it, or why you like it..but..."its the best thing written about these characters!" (not a real quote from girl)

but..but...*sputters*

am i crazy, or is this just..way out of touch with reality? or..politeness? or..something?


Im not flocking this..although i probably should. but..i couldnt figure out a polite way to email the person and say, what the hell?! so..please remember that i havent named names, or even named the comm. so..yeah.

I want 28 Young Riders fics for my birthday NOW! *stamps* Why aren't you writing?!?!?!

Sounds like this person is about 14 and trying to play with the big kids and hasn't yet learned the rules of the playground... I'd smack her, but that's just me...
supposedly, she's about to turn 21, so..she's definitely old enough to be smacked..i just..cant figure out how to phrase it..because she has people SIGNING UP for the challange! *flabbergasted*

maybe i should try this for MY birthday?

..and you didnt tell me what KIND of fic you wanted. and who. and with what. and if they are naked. *blinks* um..what?

PS. have you seen the TYR picspam? i must to make icons.
Kid/Jimmy
Kid/Lou
Lou/Jimmy
Ike and Buck friendship fic
Cody making a fool of himself

And variants on that theme. *g*

The picspam is awesome! Yes, icons are a must.

I understand what you are saying, and am intrigued. I enjoy your thoughts and ideas. Might I bother you for a pamphlet or brouchere, so I might further explore your ideals?
No, you're totally in the right in WTF'ing all over the place. Ferreal.

And I have someone on my flist who issued a birthday challenge for her favorite character. However, it was in her personal journal, and there wasn't any sort of time/number limit on it. I thought it was pretty classy, compared to the tackiness I've witnessed elsewhere.

*pets*
Heh. I took a glance at your flist and found the offending post, but I won't say who it was since you didn't.

That is some special kind of stupid. I'll admit to posting stuff like "hey, someone want to write me this fic? *bats eyelashes*" but it's always in my own LJ, so I'm just being pathetic to my own flist, not a whole comm. And reccing yourself just smacks of desperation. AND that challenge is hilariously selfish. Just...jeez.
lol. I knew exactly what you were talking about when I read this. :)

I did snag one of the prompts, because I suddenly got bit by a ficcing bug and I spent all of grand rounds yesterday scribbling fic that wasn't NOK. (gasp! my muse isn't dead to new Rayne after all!) But I signed up for *me,* not for her. It was just a convenient excuse to write.

Makes me feel like I should do this for my birthday: "you need to write me smutfics! now!" *snerk*
Dude, i don't even rec my partner in crime over at polyfandomrecs because it's *our* community and it seems weird to pimp her (though I do it in my personal journal - hee).

And wow. It's one thing to hint that your birthday is coming up (as I tend to do...hee) and flat out state that you expect 21 fics written for you. Because everyone's life revolves around you.
Oh dear. I really don't see why people post anonymous comments. If you have something to say, just say it.

And, again, I agree with you completely :P Maybe it takes a while for people to understand LJ ettiquette. Perhaps. I do enjoy said person's fics but I get frustrated with the ... superior tone of them. Like sometimes I feel like she KNOWS she's done a good job, which gets annoying. And frankly, I get less enjoyment out of them knowing that.

On another note completely, I have finally fallen under the spell of the American Office and Jim Halpert is made of sex. Gorgeous, giggly, adorable sex *SWOOON*
Oh, dear God! I have enough trouble coming up with stories that satisfy me, let alone writing for another person. I'm just going to sit back and watch this train wreck from a distance.
That's tacky as all hell. It's one thing to be all "Hey! It's my birthday! Fic me!" in your own journal, but in a comm is ridiculous. And if she's 21, she's old enough to know better. Tacky tacky tacky.
Part of me wants to say "Oh, yours is the best style? Write your own damn fic." But another part of me (the evil imp side--try to keep her locked in the closet, but she keeps escaping) wants to get several friends to write fic in her own style and see if she actually likes it!

Actually, "write your own damn fic" is my gut reaction to the whiny "I've had a bad day" people (in the comm--your own journal, you can be as whiny as you want--i am). I'm not much of a writer myself, so I simply appreciate what others write and choose to write.
ooo- that was- that was eloquent and awesome alia! you kick ass! Thank you for finaly giving a voice to the thoughts that were running rampant through my head. *hugs*

Also there is a mild curoius question i have to ask- within the unamed challange, a certain unamed person stepped up and made a awesome reply- which to me had the distinct voice of the lovely alia- pray tell, was that most awesome of all awesome replies to this monstrosity the wonderous you?

if it was- well than, you did me proud alia!
twas not the alia, though she does know who it was..and he lives in her house and does not have an lj....*innocent look*
You win at life...because that is everything I've been wanting to say but kept quiet because Mik didn't want me to start a war just yet. *shrugs* It was beautiful though, thank you :)
