My model airplane is mostly painted.

Today I read, in fandom wank, the epic tale of Victoria Bitter and the very very strange places that very very sick people can go using fandom as their vehicle. Wow, epic weird. This person has recently been writing Harry Potter fic using an assumed persona with a claimed background that, honestly, people, fails every single plausibility test I can imagine. Why was anyone taken in? I boggle.

Oh, the humanity. The ever-amusing humanity.

Oh, fandom, how I'm not really sure I missed you the last few weeks. Except then I read some Top Gear fic and remembered that fandom is fun.

ObFicWittering: Considering delaying long, plotty fic that is making me read about metallurgy so I can instead finish the frothy conclusion to "Liegeman". Which requires little research.
I hadn't heard of VB and the trouble she caused so I spent most of the time I read the background looking like this O_O and then like this O_O.

What's even worse is if you keep reading the comments all the way through and follow the links they were at it still in 2006 under even newer guises!

People like that are what drove me out of fandom originally. One of the nicer points about lj is that you can choose to have discussions only with people are behave like rational adults. Well, for certain values of rational... :-D

Oh honestly. I'm not even going to bother trying to edit that comment again. Clearly I need something to boost my blood sugars. You got my gist I'm sure, even if my grammar and syntax are all over the place.
I understood what you meant :) I too wasted tons of time reading all the comments and piecing together the strange, strange story. Wow wow wow, there's some crazy out there. I mean, I think of myself as neurotic in various ways, but I lead a boring life with friends and family and pets and don't have breakdowns while talking made-up languages and channeling the spirits of random movie actors. O.O I can only dream of being that crazy! Er. Not.
