Inspired by this post
A couple of years ago, I finally admitted that all I really like to write is angsty fic, concerned (mostly) with UST and control issues, with the occasional explosion or whatever to liven it up. What the hell, find your niche and hang up some curtains, right? ( The following paragraph has minor spoilers for Torchwood up through 1x06, Countrycide )
Oops, the cynical voice got out. Sorry.
Happyfluffy is alright in small doses, I suppose, although it's rarely all that plausible for a given 'ship.
To quote (or possibly misquote) Henry Rollins: if there were a movie out, called 'The Happy Guy', and it's about a happy guy, with a happy marriage to a happy wife, with some happy kids and a happy dog, who go through some happy little problems, but nothing too bad, no one would go to see it. But down the street, there's another movie called 'Fucked-Up Depresso Guy', who lives in a smog-filled city with gangs and crime and hookers, and he almost gets killed walking to work every day because his car is broke down, and he works in a factory putting spindles in boxes, and girls avoid him like the plague, and one day he can't take it any more and just starts punching random people in the face on the street -- we'd all go see that movie! there'd be a line around the block!
I don't know about you guys, but I'm watching the second film. I've got a pretty good life. Seeing a movie (or reading a story) about someone else's pretty good life isn't going to be all that interesting, or new.
I should admit that I still get sniffly at the end of "Love, Actually", so I'm not a total
But, in general, I'm going to write about the things that interest me, that I enjoy writing about, and that provide a break from my pretty-good life - hence PWP, strong (negative) emotions, UST, control issues, angst, insanity (check out my V:tM
archive for that) and, okay, maybe the occasional hurt-comfort bit. Maybe.
So, er, aside from the occasional light-hearted bit - because sometimes a joke is too good to resist sharing - don't expect much in the way of hearts-and-flowers around here. Just sayin'.
My blood sugar just crashed. I have no idea if this entry makes sense.
