The fic-writing meme...

Ganked from inlovewithnight, and cut because it's sort of longCollapse )

In other news, I still feel like crap. I need to go to the bank and make a deposit, go to the library and turn in stuff that's due today and pick up the last two Farscape S1 discs and "Academ's Fury" by Jim Butcher--which, luckily for me, are all at the same branch. We have something like twenty libraries in the Valley, all in the Salt Lake County Library System, so it's not a given that they'd all be in one place. I can reserve them online and they'll all show up at one branch, but I'd have to wait a couple of days, and I don't wanna.

I should also go grocery shopping. Ugh.

Well, the library didn't have "Academ's Fury." Apparently a transit request hit the system before I could get to the book.

On the other hand...

*headdesks again*

We all know that most of the Buffy and Angel novelizations suck big green mossy rocks, right? The writing style is dull, the characterizations are off, the dialogue is lame, and the villains are boring. They're not BADfic per se, but they're not very good either.

That being said...

The library was selling off a bunch of them. For a quarter apiece. So I bought them.

Seventeen of them. All Angel tie-ins, even though they had some Buffy tie-ins too, but it's time I admitted to myself that the only reason I watched Buffy was for Spike, whereas I liked Angel for everyone. So, yeah. They also had the two "Unseen" BtVS/AtS crossovers I was missing (I bought the middle one at another library without really looking at it and only found out when I got it home what it was), so I grabbed them as well.

So, I don't have Jim Butcher-y goodness. But I have plenty of AtS...badness?
