not quite something and not exactly something else  

gonna go hang out in the indiana wilds with crimson_vita for a few days
and i almost never talk like this?
but there better be a few new lj comments waiting for me when i get back
or i'm just going to soak your feed in willow/tara hardcore for the rest of the year

wait no that's rewarding ...quite a number of you weirdos
or so it should be, considering.

so what i mean is
i'll continue my slow fade out
and nobody wants that


well, some of you do.
it's what keeps me going, some days. ;-)
still. make with the comments, already.
girl can't journal on spite alone.

Indiana wilds? Where is that? I'm from down south of Terre Haute, but it's mostly corn and soybeans locally.

Odd about Willow. I adored her at first but disliked her intensely later on. Tara I loved every moment and still do.

her cabin is at mud lake (so not exactly the deep wilderness, but remote enough so that i wasn't getting texts on my tracfone until we were about an hour into the drive home!) it was great. of course there was seeing cv, which i really needed, but it's been nearly ten years since i got a little midwest autumn and i didn't even know how much i'd been missing it. i did a whole lot of farmer's field gazing. cornfield trances are nice.

i am hopelessly in love with every aspect of tara macclay. like, down to my little fantasies about how amazing her dorm room must smell. i also experienced some dislike of willow, especially after what she did to tara and buffy during the sixth season (INSERT ENDLESS WILLOW RANT HERE) ...tara could do better. like me. tara could be with me, instead. ;-)

I'll look for Mud Lake on a map!

Bet you're right that Tara's room would smell wonderful, and I'm sure she herself did. (The reason I got into fanfic, btw, was the appeal of fixing what was broken in this or that canon. It would obviously apply here! A self-insertion of a Mary Sue would be entirely appropriate.) :)

LOL! yes, i was thinking "mary sue all the way."

as a means of busting through the iron-wrought writer's block i had going for a while after moving to baltimore, i actually started a piece that's tara's journal from her first year at college. i didn't get very far, but what's there is pretty fun. wanna see?

Sure! (I won't show you my one fanfic tangential to the buffyverse, because it's a benign Nerd Trio one. Haha, I loved Andrew. *g*)

I did not know this. :D

Indiana has lots of Mud Lakes

jeez! that is a lot of mud lakes.

when i typed "mud lake indiana" into google, a map of the township was the first thing that came up. it's close to macy.

Yes, that's the one I got as a first hit too, and then I saw the dozen. :D

Sorry for the silence -- I was at work trip, followed immediately after by the most insane week I've ever had at this job.

LJ is feeling super lonely of late though, isn't it?
selva oscura: [magritte] mentoranonymousblack on October 7th, 2016 05:12 pm (UTC)
see, thing is, you're one of the two people who actually comments on my journal these days, so i wasn't talking about you! that guilt was directed elsewhere, i'm sorry if some of it got on you.

yeah, it's been pretty damn lonely here. it's really starting to get to me. :-/

I'm feeling a little what's-the-point-y about the place. Dude who added me, never commented, complained about people never commenting on his stuff and then unfriended did not help.

UGH. oh, male entitlement. will you ever fail us? will you ever fail us, PLEASE?
