No real directions, but this isn't a place for debate. It's a place for RANTIN' AND RAVIN'.

There is a rule: There is to be no calling out anyone by name in Rants, Chatter, or on the Meme itself. This only produces an atmosphere of animosity and it is no longer tolerated. If you see any names being ranted about, please link us at Page-A-Mod. Thanks! :)

Please do not use this post or any other posts in the meme for sharing of download or streaming of links that aren't the official source of the content.

Really sick of having to do captchas when posting logged in. Pointless and annoying. DX

Not a rant- love your icon.


Hi rant post!

Hello, Anonymous!

Look at us both, acting all civil and behaved. Shall we start ranting and misbehaving now? >:D

GUISE

(Anonymous)
I got all upset over some speculation about the Falls. I need booze. Oh man.

Re: GUISE

(Anonymous)
I feel ya. It's like having a big operation scheduled- I am fine most of the time but it upsets me like shit whenever I am reminded of its existence. I plan to watch the Fall tomorrow with a safety wine bottle tucked beside me. or, even better, just get well drunk before the broadcast.

RAGE!!!

Hi Fujin!

I was raging for so long while we didn't have a rant post. Now that we do, I can't remember what I was raging about. >:(

Half of me doesn't want it to end, and the other half does.

Season 2, or the whole shebang?

GOD-FREAKIN-DAMNIT. Having done SO WELL avoiding spoilers I click the wrong thing on tumblr and come face to face with a spoiler picture!!! GRAHHHH!! Only a minor spoiler, but still FUCK.

The 6th Harry Potter book was spoiled for me by someone's icon. and it wasn't even a Harry Potter community. I feel ya.

Hey, body, you know what I really didn't need right now, when I'm depressed enough to be reconsidering meds?! My period to come a week early, bringing unusal amounts of pain. So yeah, thanks for that. Why do you hate me?!

Same thing has happened to me. >_<
*hugs*

my rant du jour is that rant post became vital to my online life. I am dependent on it. How about nooooooooooooooooooooooo

I haven't read the prompts post in months.

s2 has inevitably drawn me back into the fandom, and after watching episode two I decided, fuck it, I'm going to cut my teeth on the kink meme. Just a few prompts. Porny ones. To ease myself back in a bit.

Every attempt goes well enough until about 100-300 words in, which seems to be the mark where I become overwhelmed by performance anxiety/otherwise bodyslammed by self-deprecation, lose all motivation to finish, and go back to twiddling my thumbs exasperatedly. It's not a case of lacking the inspiration: I get a decent layout in my head of what I want to write, but, I just get antsy and drop off.

Come on, self, do your thing. You don't even have to unanon! You don't have to track your fills, either: if you're nervous about comments, just ditch it. This should be a non-issue.

Does this qualify as a rant? It's more of a disgruntled shuffle-kick aimed towards the dirt, in the scheme of things. Maybe I should have said fuck more.

triggers for some kind of self mutilation, maybe dermatillomania

(Anonymous)
I have this weird thing where if there's some kind of lump on my body, I feel the urge to remove it. I don't know if it classes as dermatillomania or not, because I don't do it all the time, just when there's a lump.

If I get a spot, or a wart, or those eczema bumps you can get if it's cold, I have to get it off my skin. I'm usually careful with it and try not to leave scars, and if I'm making it worse then I will take steps to stop myself - plasters on my fingers and all that.

The problem is, it's starting to extend to other people now. If I see someone who has a large wart or something on their face I want to cut it off. Obviously I've never done or said anything but I just want to. Like, Andrew Scott has a lump under his eye that I never noticed until recently and now every time I see a picture of him I see it and want to cut it off. I can't stand it!

Obviously I don't want to be like this but I don't know what to do about it either.

Re: triggers for some kind of self mutilation, maybe dermatillomania

I'm like that with dry looking skin. Doesn't matter what it is - chapped lips, a healing wound, a dried blister...I need it off my skin. I've got several scars from where I just wouldn't let a wound heal coz I picked the scab off it and I know I shouldn't but I just can't help myself. I have scars on my face from where I've picked spots. My lower lip is now naturally about 3 or 4x the size of my upper lips because I picked at the edges of it so frequently. I'm thinking about therapy, because at some point I'm gonna do damage I can't ignore...

This kink meme needs more porn and less plot prompts/fics.

WHERE ARE THE KINKY SEX FICS? Not here.

It never started as a kink meme. Gen is some people's kink and personally I like a hell of a lot of plot between my porn.

I still love you.

and for fuck's sake, i wish I didn't because I'm with someone else and moving on and putting together the pieces of life you left me with but I still can't help but miss our chats and being adored by you.

And it makes me angry because you don't care. You don't care at all. And I hate that we have mutual friends on Twitter and LJ and etc because I can't be fucking free of you. And probably never will.

kinkmeme hangups

(Anonymous)
I hate being too embarrassed to prompt what I really want. It's anonymous! It's foolproof! And yet, every time I open up the comment box and start typing it out, I have to stop.

Re: kinkmeme hangups

(Anonymous)
Post! I have all kinds of kinks that plenty of people don't like. But there's always someone who wants the same kink I do, and that's completely worth it.

Re: kinkmeme hangups (Anonymous) Expand
I'm sensing there will be no S3.

But does that matter? I'd rather have 6 good film length stories than the multiple episode, multiple series US style dramas where the quality falls off so quickly in series 1 you don't know why they bothered. Yes Supernatural and CSI I'm looking at you.

Nothing, IMO, should go on more than about 10 or 15 hours at most.

The number of comments for my fill have gone down and down with each chapter. And I'm so needy and pathetic that I can't help but check in case there are any new ones every five minutes when I really need to be studying right now >:C

Mycroft says your's. People aren't commenting because of the bad grammar?

Personally I find it a bit difficult to find the time to read every fill I want to: I don't have a paid account so I can only track entire prompt posts, which leads to my inbox having about 400/500+ messages each day. I try not to let them pile up and get through them as quick as I can, bookmarking what I want to read, but there's so much (especially since s2 started) that I usually get through mini fills and already completed fills first and leave WIPs for later.

So, idk about most people but for me I can say that maybe I have bookmarked your fill and it's just waiting there to be read :) Comments will come! :)

Stil, don't despair: it's usually pretty normal for a WIP to have more comments at the beginning, then losing a few/a lot throughout the central part of the story and then gaining them all back with the second to last/last part. Keep going, people are reading, most fics regain their commenters by the end :)

Pretty sure this place is haunted.

(Anonymous)
Ghost(s) do not appear to be personable or benevolent.

I didn't know I believed in ghosts. But what the fuck?

Re: Pretty sure this place is haunted.

I believe in ghosts, see 'em often, grew up in a family that, culturally, believes in them and practices a form of hoodoo mediumship...

If you think about it, and believe in ghosts, they were once people too and what you see is their spirit or energy so if they were dicks in life, they can be such in death. Some people believe that ghosts with the classic "unfinished business" can be douchey, too. Anyway, I ramble. Just tell them to leave you alone. It usually works.

ranty catharsis, potential triggers

(Anonymous)
It's not my secret any more.

I feel weird. I've kept it so long, and it turns out that maybe this secret being told was the best thing that could happen, even though it didn't feel like it the first time I tried, and it doesn't feel like it now because other people – people I care about – now have to carry it too.

He can get the help he needs, and I don't have to worry about his family (my family)'s reactions because it's already happened, they know, and it's not so bad, they're on my side, it's nowhere near as terrible as I imagined.

Admittedly, it's only been a week since he was arrested and he's out on bail for two months and if this actually ends up in the local paper – not good. I don't want it to go further, more people to know - this far and no more, that's enough, does that make sense? Though if other girls are at risk (I don't think there are but if) then fuck that.

But right now - I think I feel good, rant meme. I think I'm okay.

Re: ranty catharsis, potential triggers

I'm glad you're feeling good! :)
I turned my father in for possession of child pornography a few years ago and it was scary and it was a lot of crap from family and his friends (YOU RUINED HIS LIFE! HOW COULD YOU? THIS SORT OF SHIT STAYS IN PRIVATE! type stuff) but... you know what? I felt okay with the anger because *he* is the one who did wrong and fucked up. So I can kind of feel you on this, Anon, and understand where you're coming from. Happy thoughts for you and I'm glad you're okay. :)


Why do some people get pages of feed back when I am not sure anyone is even reading my stories? where are they posting to bring in the crowds?!?!?!?!?!

If you really think it's just a matter of advertisement, post to the major comms. In this fandom, that would be sherlockbbc, for example. Not that cool a comm, but everyone can post their fanfic there and it's relatively widely read. If you want people here to see it, you can post it in the story announcement post or prompt it and post it as a fill or link it in the love post. Hell, it's anon, whatever.

People will read it, if you do that, if they will comment depends entirely on the fic.

It might sound stupid but during the last year the rant post honestly taught me how to better respect other people's opinions, how to confront others with manners and politeness, the dos and donts when discussing with somebody, how to better organise my thoughts and opinions and present them better and more clearly.

That was all thanks to the rant post and everybody who ever posted in it.

But before learning all that I felt defensive of my opinions and "pleasantly angry" whenever I found somebody who disagreed with me, I found a nice way to expel the excess anger accumulated during the week while fighting with other people, something that doesn't happen anymore because I'm more in control of my anger and my opinions and myself.

I'm thankful for that and I'm unbelievably glad I learned the art of discussion better, I really am.

But... this is the rant post so let's rant: how am I supposed to expel all the anger and stress and stuff now? D:

I need to invest in one of those boxing things I can punch, that'll help and feel awesome XD

Run yourself down with strenuous, drawn out exercise? That always makes me feel better tension-wise.

Dearest residents;
Please stop doing drugs in the residence halls. Firstly, it's illegal... lol I know that won't stop you, it rarely stops anyone, especially in this state, but at the very least, go off campus. Marijuana smells really gross and it feels like it's in my hair even. *shiver* Also, calling the cops repeatedly was not my idea of a nice Friday night. (Having someone in the lobby telling me that I smell like pot while I'm waiting for the police to show up isn't great either.)
Obligatory, "Make good choices!"
xoxo, staff member

PS-Drink off campus too, and don't get mad at us when you get in trouble for having alcohol on a dry campus. Ugh.

RA solidarity! (Well, former RA in my case.)

possibly gross TMI

(Anonymous)
My armpits are peeling and red. I switched deodorants months ago to a non-scented, mild deodorant. It worked for a bit, and now this.

What gives? Now I'm not wearing anything till my skin stops peeling. It doesn't hurt at all... but still! There's GOT to be a deoderant out there that doesn't leave me with red rings around my armpits and peeling, dry skin! :(


Re: possibly gross TMI

(Anonymous)
Do you shave your armpits by any chance, anon? I found that using a razor and putting on my deodorant made my armpits peel a bit and I had dry skin there for quite a while. Then I tried putting on a bit of body cream (normal body cream, nothing too fancy) to hydrate the skin of my armpits and it's much better now, it's not red anymore and the skin is healthy. Give it a try :)

Of, if you don't shave your armpits, try the body cream trick anyway: some deodorants can irritate the skin anyway, use the body cream and change deodorant to a natural one.

This fic. WTF. Why would someone of rural England speak like a cowboy from Texas? I can't read this shit anymore.

Re: Not this fandom

*wince* I'm *from* Texas and that sounds bad even to me... I've noticed that some people automatically think rural=cowboy.
