Xander 2

I am now officially trying to stay caught up.

Caught up, commenting, participating, all that jazz. Perhaps even ficcing a little. Don't hold me to that. I have so many projects and so little waking time. Only 16 hours per day. Totally not enough.

Sometimes, in order to rev up the writing engines, I re-read things I have posted in the past. Sometimes this works: I read a story and think, hey, that wasn't so awful, I maybe know how this story construction thing works, I can do this again! Sometimes I read one and think, oh dear oh dear oh dear wtf was I thinking? I just re-read the little sequel to "An Antique Roman" and immediately edited my fic archive to give it the tag "sentimental tripe". Very sweet tripe. Maybe "sentimental trifle"?

Perhaps I should add that to the short list of things I warn for, right after "songfic". That story should also warn for "guitar porn".

I also note that I seem to have a thing about shaggy-haired Xander. I guess I never got into short-haired Nick Brendan.

I think I shall avoid the Internet for the next 24 hours. But this one was funny. Photos of earnest bearded nerds spooning are always funny.

It really helps to hear I'm not the only one with doubts and needing to be reminded that I once wrote some non awful things.

Need to get back to work on my current awful thing. Cheers.
I do find it sentimental, but I don't find it tripe at all. I like to think these two found understanding and something deeper than just sex as they grew older. Their path will never be smooth, but that they have found a way to travel together is hopeful. And yeah, the sex is always good.
