In recent months, I have been spending all my free reading time reading fanfiction. Not that there's anything wrong with that! And it has allowed me to collect links to a really impressive variety of pr0n, and really, who doesn't like pr0n? (Next project: organize links into categories, so the next time I think, "I want a fic where Rose and the Doctor curl up in bed totally platonically and wake up with hands in naughty places" I will have them all sorted into one convenient list.) Though I promise, I do also read plenty of fic which it would be perfectly acceptable to show to children and which is not pr0ny at all. Though the Torchwood kick I've been on for the last week or two has crimped my non-pr0n style; there's not really a ton of Jack/Ianto fic where they hold hands and then fade to black.

But anyway, I got to thinking. "Self," I said, "You need to read more actual novels. For one, it would make talking to your family way less complex when they ask, 'So, what have you been reading lately?' because it is really hard to say to your mother, in re: that question, 'Oh, you know. Fanfiction where my favorite tv characters stop being total morons and actually get together and/or do not die horribly or get 'lost'.' That just doesn't work. Also, it would give your RL friends some relief from the way you constantly chatter on about whatever fandom is currently obsessing you, in that it would at least diversify the chatter." And I realized I had a really good point. Even the best of friends surely must get sick of hearing me talk constantly about Ten, or Jack, or why it totally makes sense for Rose to hook up with both of Ten and the many and myriad reasons why that would not be at all awkward. Surely, I thought, it would almost be a relief to have that interrupted by the occasional exclamation, "Oh don't date the FBI agent! You want the demon god-king!"*

So I reminded myself that the Kindle is not just for reading fanfic (totally worth it for that purpose, mind) and downloaded a book.



*actual exclamation I was actually heard to exclaim earlier tonight whilst my less crazy housemates were trying to play Borderlands
