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

Edit: 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! :)

Uh...uh... FIFTH!

I've always wanted to be first...

I was first. I had massive performance anxiety about what to write, with the growing panic someone else would be first whilst I was writing.

Damn you, Firsting, why are you so stressful??

Anyway. It's not all it's cracked up to be. Stressful and then slightly disappointing...

;)

(Mycroft's pretty pissed off he wasn't first either, apparently. There's no need to be offensive, Mycroft!)

I'm here to rant about the fact that we already have six comment on here and not a single rant! Six comments and no blood has been spilled yet! I am disappoint and I shall rant! RANNNNNNNNT! >:(

[/totally serious and important rant u guys]

Grah. I have no concentration and haven't written anything in MONTHS. I've got all these ideas and all these WIPs on, and gah.

And now I'm going to track this thread, even though I won't get the comments in my email for another week because LJ is broken AGAIN.

When ISN'T LJ broke!? I haven't received anything in my mail for a year. The moment they fix it, it breaks again.

agree with you on the concentration. 7 fics currently waiting for me to work on them and haven't been able to for a few months.

How many real friends do you have? I have none.

Only one. Fell into the friendship purely accidentally. Only person in the world I feel I don't have to make an effort to make friends with. If there's one thing I can't handle it's making effort. Because I am a hermit type.

Have you tried travelling abroad? Sometimes that helps expand your friendship circle.

Non-fandom rant

(Anonymous)
My brother & sister in law just had their first baby. So, yay! babies.

But they've given the poor wee sod a HORRIBLE name (and no, I'm not putting it on here, even anon; I'm not THAT daft).

I know it's got nothing to do with me, it's their choice, yadda yadda.

But OMG what were they thinking? And how will I keep a straight face the first time I have to pick the wee mite up and say hello to him?

Re: Non-fandom rant

You'll get used to it and it will stop seeming horrible. And, in fact, any negative associations you have with that name will be replaced with positive associations you have with the kid. You may end up liking the name in the end.

I can tell you that kids with strange and unusual names do not get teased about it the way people seem to think they should. No more than people with perfectly ordinary common names do. Kids with common names just earn mocking nicknames. In fact most of the kids I've known with odd names actually loved their names because they were unusual and distinctive and they didn't have to share them with anyone else.

angsting over the fact that your celebrity crush doesn't even know your existence all day isn't really a good sign is it?

Oh darling, no, it's really not a good sign, not at all.

Try to get your grip back on reality: go out with friends, family, interact with actual people, get away from your computer (thus photos/news of your celebrity crush). You need to get back on earth.

I just flunked my social context of business midterm! Yay. ;_;

I don't even know what that means! Yay! (Sorry if it's important :( )

I'm giving this tv show a shot and I keep seeing the hatred and fights between two minor characters as ~deep sexual frustration. Haven't seen all episodes yet but I know it's highly unlikely they'll actually, magically get together and this ridiculously stupid reason is preventing me from actually enjoying the rest of the show (or even understand if I like the show enough to keep following it, I haven't made up my mind yet after 14 episodes...)


Drives me bonkers when I spend time writing fic, post it to a comm, and then no one reads/comments. :( I mean, I'm not one of those SUPER AWESOME fic authors, but I'm not bad, either, and I would love the concrit. Or, you know, squealing delight. Some sort of feedback to let me know if I'm even on the mark with what I'm writing.

*sigh* Send a sister some love, you know what I'm sayin'? Especially in the Sherlock fandom, where getting the voice right is so damned hard.

No comments doesn't necessarily equate to no readers. One of the reasons I like posting to AO3 is that you can see "Hits" - which of course doesn't mean everyone who found the thing read it, but they were at least interested enough to click on it. But on lj it's like posting into a void sometimes. Readers are there, but invisible.

Potentially Spoilery talk about Season 2

(Anonymous)
OK, I like Sarah. I think she's actually an alright character. And she's supposed to still be around in Season 2. But even though I like her I can't get invested in her at all, AT ALL, because I just keep thinking "Where the fuck is Mary? Where is MARY?!"

I didn't necessarily expect them to introduce her in the first season, and I get that they might not have gone the route of actually marrying John off, but if Sarah is still around in Season 2 then I'm starting to wonder if they are ever going to introduce Mary at all. There's only going to be what, 3 seasons? Maybe 4, though I doubt it. And there's no Mary in sight. I had really hoped they would bring her in mid-season 2 so John would have her around for whatever they are doing with Reichenbach/Great Hiatus, but she's not there!

I ship Sherlock/John like crazy in fanfic but in the show I want Mary, damn it! I mean, after Holmes and Watson, she's really like the third or fourth most seen character in the books (I think, I'm still still reading them). I understand they don't have a lot of time to mess around with other relationships other than John and Sherlock's friendship, and that's fine because I love that they focus on it so much. And I get that we have to have Moriarty, I get that they want to throw in Irene, but damn it WHERE THE FUCK IS MARY? She could be so freaking wonderful if they would write her well, but now I'm starting to think that if they show her at all it will just be a bit at the end of the series and we'll have wasted all this time with Sarah! Even though I do like you, Sarah.

I just don't know why they would include every other character but not her. WHERE THE FUCK IS MARY?!!

Re: Potentially Spoilery talk about Season 2

I don't think there will be S3 actually. This could be just a rumor but I've heard that BC said that this will be last season of the show. So if this is the case, there will be no Mary at all. I guess. Which is sad.

OP- AND ANOTHER THING.... (Anonymous) Expand

Hello?

Apparently I'm fucking invisible today. Wish there was a way I could check that I haven't actually died. Although I guess ghosts can't use the internet.

Lamenting Lack of a Life

(Anonymous)
My design module this year is called 'Ministry of the Unseen' (Oh my giddy aunt think I, a building for Mycroft!) but its so difficult to fit the design work in when I have DigitalCultures, Technology&Precedent and CitiesCulture&Society modules all asking for coursework at the same time, let alone write, be active in the fandom or actually have any kind of relationship in RL.

TL;DR - lonely student swamped, fandom life suffering, nonexistent first (boy/girl)friend still nonexistent.

Mycroft: "production aryuil". Yes Mycroft, I must be ill if I think I can do all that...

I really, really want a dog, but it's so expensive!!! I've looked everywhere, but there's not a single person in this town with dogs for less than 500€! Pleaaaaase someone give me a dog for a little less! I just want to love him and hug him and call him George ;____;

If you can't afford the dog in the first place, how are you going to afford its vet treatment? Like all the shots it'll need, neutering, and anything that might crop up?
