Finished yesterday. I discovered quite a few authors I MUST read thanks to some of the contributions. Also, dear sweet Zombie Jesus, don’t read the one about the spiders:
Finished the final 200 pages earlier today after struggling through the narrative for at least a month. I wanted to like it based on my love for another novel by the same author, but I was so disappointed by so many things:
Started earlier today, hoping to finish this weekend. I shamelessly love (almost) all things Elizabeth Bear, and Don Sebastien is one of my weak spots, I just wish these books were easier to find:
And next up will (probably) either be
I really, really don’t care about Abercrombie’s stories but, damn, this man comes up with some awesome characters
which I found thanks to her Contribution in Naked City, which is from the same setting.
Also, at some point I should really finish A Storm of Swords. I stopped that puppy midway through and never came back to it. And that was in, uh, July? I want to, but Martin kills my soul a little each and every time a bannerman is mentioned. There are too damn many characters in that series. Too. Damn. Many.
The one who seduced you, screwed you over, broke your heart in a million pieces, and laughed about it:
The old flame you don’t see very often any more but whom you still really enjoy getting together with for a few drinks and maybe a pleasant nostalgic romp:
Buffy, the Vampire Slayer
The mysterious dark one whom you used to sit up with talking until 3 AM at weird coffee houses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized s/he really was fucking crazy:
Stephen King’s The Dark Tower
The one you spent a whole weekend in bed with and who drank up all your liquor and whom you’d still really like to get with again, although you’re relieved s/he doesn’t actually live in town:
The alluring stranger whom you’ve flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with:
The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with, but ultimately you’re just good buddies:
Pirates of the Caribbean
The one your friends keep introducing you to and who seems like a hell of a cool person except it’s never really gone anywhere:
The one who’s slept with all your friends, and you keep looking at them and thinking, “How the hell did they land all these cool people?”
Firefly/Serenity (OP’s answer, I had to keep it, as it was perfect.)
The one who gave you the best damned summer of your life and against whom you measure all other potential partners:
The Richard Sharpe series
The one you recently met at a party and would like to get to know better:
The old flame that you wouldn’t totally object to hooking up with again for a one night romp if only they’d clean up a bit:
World of Warcraft
Your hot new flame:
A Song of Ice and Fire
The one who stole your significant other:
Day 14: Have you ever had a floating head? What about a headless body?
I’ve had both, though the floating head scenarios is FAR more frequent in its occurrence. Floating bodies only happen when someone is off for faceup, and even then the body is usually hijacked by one of the floating heads until its original owner returns.
A HUGE part of my collecting problem is that I hate floating heads. All the dolls must be complete!
Poor Indira has never had a body to call her own. Forever a floating head.
Day 13: Dolly shoes! Show us how many you have!
Uh, my dolls are wearing them at the moment, and some are barefoot due to lack of shoes.
Just as I am not obsessed with human shoes, I really don’t care about doll shoes, either.
