SGA. I love you.

I really do.

Spoilers for Brain Storm, with squee harshing for the end of it and The Shrine )

In conclusion: I love you show. Why do we have to fight?

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, maybe I can make my regular post o' squee in a little bit. Also! I need to make a birthday post o' squee, because I got presents! :D

Hi thar FFnet. See this little thing below?



DO NOT WANT.

I do not like to use the <hr> tag in general in my stories. It's a personal thing, I don't like a line that takes up the length of a window to indicate a scene break in my writing, because to me that is like a full stop. That is in effect saying "Whoa sucker! Take a break!", which hey, might be crazy, but it's my personal crazy.

What I like even less is when, without notice, someone has gone through and viciously yanked out what I've chosen to use for a scene break. I would have still been pissed had I had notice, but someone giving me the common courtesy of forewarning I at least could have visually searched through the story (used the ever helpful CTRL+F), found what I was using for scene breaks and place it with the all mighty <hr>.

I'm starting to think that they just like torturing their user base. I mean, what the heck? I've had to put up with a lot over the seven years I've been posting stories there. (Seven whole years, sheesh!) The special character hatred, especially of my beloved *'s, has always irked me, because I've had to make a separate document specially formatted for FFnet. But you go where the readership is, and it didn't bother me up until tonight that it was there.

And I was going to make some inappropriate jokes about poor oppressed yellow *'s and the evil <hr> swastikas that plague them... but I'm just too tired at this point.

All right... I feel... slightly mollified now. I have an idea that might be able to defeat the Pit of Formatting Nazis Voles latest faux pas. If it's successful... I'll make a nice, non-ranty post. Oh, MS Frontpage, you are my friend.

Dear John Sheppard,

Please stop being so emotionally repressed. It gives me the fits trying to keep you in character while trying to communicate something. BECAUSE YOU DON'T COMMUNICATE.

AJLSRGHOUHSGF!

Okay, I might feel a little better now.

Plz emote more. Kthnx.

<3

Grey

There are reasons to dislike Valentine's day other than the whole "Single's Awareness Day" aspect. (Actually that doesn't bother me at all this year. Strange.)

Behold! (But put on a pair of sunglasses before clicking the on the cut):
My eyes! )

Geez, Google, what did my eyes ever do to you?

However I have to say that broken hearts instead of the dull stars amuseth me greatly.

I posted a comment a little while back in one of the writer communities that I was on that I've moved to writing my stories in plain text, and then formatting them later. I really couldn't remember why... until this evening.
