Things have improved quite a bit over the past several months. I've gotten pretty busy as of late, which is always a good thing. As it turns out my grandma is alright, and she's planning to come for a visit next month. I've landed a job with Lia Sophia and things are going surprisingly well with it so far. All in all, I'm feeling much better. Thanks again to those of you who cheered me up so much. You know who you are <3 Still no news about Sarah, but I guess things could be worse; no news is good news. With any luck, she'll be alright.

I've been avoiding using this account as a sort of self-punishment for a while, because I pulled some stupid wank in a comm a while back XD I don't know why I felt like I had to; it's not like anyone holds long-standing grudges because of something that happens on the internet. Still, I feel like an ass for some of the stuff I said, but I suppose there's not much else I can do. I accidentally deleted the entry while trying to edit it on my iPod, so it's not even as though the source of the wank exists anymore, and I apologized to everyone involved. Still, I'm a guilt horse.

Speaking of wank, I've spent the afternoon becoming immersed in Tara Gilesbie's "My Immortal", which is possibly the worst, most mind-numbing thing I've ever read, but it's just too funny not to enjoy in some sick, masochistic way. It's been deleted from FFN for years, but you can find info on it as well as read the actual fic here if you haven't already (a direct link to the actual fic's text can be found here). It's just hysterical. For those unfamiliar with this muddled mystery of a fic, it's basically a teenage girl with no common sense's version of what Harry Potter would be like if everyone was a goth, a vampire, a prep, just a plain douchebag, or a weird mix of all three and mysteriously lost their original characterizations somewhere along the way. I haven't stopped laughing since I started reading chapter one. The focus of the story is on a stereotypical "gothic" Mary Sue. It's just too horrifying and amusing not to be fattening. It's the official worst fanfic ever written. You have GOT to read it. I'm not even kidding.

Well... I'll probably post my reactions upon finishing what's been written of said fic later XD for now, I'm off to melt my brain with it until it's over with.

PS: I'm currently working on another monster of a fic since Duet is finished. My sister volunteered to beta it, but still hasn't started (it's been several months). It's a Silent Hill one... I want to get it done before I start my next Ouran one because I know the Ouran one will get all of my attention XD so if any of you would like to take a look at it for grammar and continuity errors, I'd appreciate it.

I LOVE "My Immortal". It is absolutely the shittiest thing I've ever read, and it does WONDERS for one's self esteem, LOL. Every time I start to feel bad about my writng/artist abilities, I read "My Immortal".

XDDD my thoughts exactly! It makes you feel like an amazing writer no matter what <3 it's like an ego boost in the form of a fic. It's too terrible not to be good in some way.

Dually, it also makes me feel terrible because it's written the same way I wrote in middle school XD with the black and white world of goths and preps and run-on sentences. At least I could spell, though.

Hahah, I did the "over-freaking-explaining-outfits" crap a lot when I was 13. xD

Oh my god My Immortal is the best thing in the universe.

...Even though it makes my eyes bleed after three chapters.

But it's so, so, so hilarious! XD

XD I know, right? It's so... so hilariously pathetic. I have to take breaks while I'm reading it so I don't cry or throw up, but it's so addicting.

I love how the author spells it like "my imrotl" when she posts about it on her DA XDDDD
