Fanfiction... Oh God.

So, I just have to say...
Fanfiction gets a pretty bad wrap, I know.
But as a writer (no, I'm not twelve and writing about unrealistic hookups that happen magically after someone meets...), I just have to say that I love it.
I'm able to creatively use Fanfiction as an outlet. In the real world, you can't publish your own spin-off of a movie or of someone's book.
On Fanfiction, the possibilities are endless.
So far I've only written two separate Fanifction stories revolving around the Rachel McAdams / Cillian Murphy movie called Red Eye, but it's been amazing. I've been working on my own novels, but it's great to have some constructive feedback from some of the readers (and by some, I mean, those who take the time to actually appreciate the story for what it is, not, "Why aren't the kissing yet?"). My first story has actually broken off into a trilogy. In my mind, that's a major success. They are the lengths of small novels and to me that equals some serious pride. Plus, they have gained an enormous following. In the real world, I would have probably gotten sued.
I can write and nobody will know who I am. I am anonymous. If I write the most ignorant thing anybody has ever seen, no one will know it was me testing out something new. I can experiment.
I know that a lot of Fanfiction is written by those twelve-year-olds wishing that they were characters in the movies / books (and often insert themselves in via "Original Characters"), but there are actually a large group of very talented writers submitting works for Fanfiction.
I'm proud (and maybe tooting my own horn, here) to say that I am one of them.
I just love being able to do something amazing with the little side-thoughts I have while watching a movie.
Not many people care. But I do. and I love it.
Just saying.

Windows Live Messenger Officially Converted to Skype

Messenger has moved to Skype

Messenger was retired in April 2013 and is no longer available or supported on most Mac and Windows operating systems. *

You can continue to make audio and video calls with your contacts on Skype and Facebook and send IMs for free—your contacts will come with you when you update to Skype and sign in with your Microsoft account.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
