I've lately noticed that society customs and norms sometimes seep into fanfic. This is especially noticeable in smut i.e. 'His hand reaches down and feels the light dust of trimmed (pubic) hair', or 'His hand moves slowly over her flat belly.'

Do you think this is the author's own preference or is she/he just following society's trends? Can we even have a own preference? Is not everything moulded to society's standards?

I've finally caved to the wishes of my friends and watched Glee for a bit. What never fails to get my attention is how different TV high school looks comparing to real life high school. They always chose people that are too good looking for that age-range and most of the time don't act like real high schoolers at all.

For instance, I can't watch Smallville for that long without wanting to gauge my eyes out; the people I've seen act all so moral and good like 'No, Joey, we can't steal the test results because that's wrong.' Blegh, somebody get me a bucket. Or Pacey from Dawson's Creek for that matter, because nobody is that confident in high school. And okay, maybe I'm a little bit biased because that's totally not how people acted in my high school but maybe it's different for American high school's.

My question to you is what do you think of high school's portrayal in television series and which ones are the best at picturing it and which ones are the worst?

Have you ever had the feeling that you were "destined" for greatness but just found out you're just average and like everybody else? You have no extraordinary talent or gift. I don't want to be an regular from nine to five Joe. I don't what to be a superstar either because I know that's not always about roses and sunshine. But at least they do something different and are meeting and visiting excited places and people. Life may not be good like that but at least it's something different.

And I hate that money is such a driving and at the same time limiting kind of force is. For instance, I would love to go to the New York Film Academy but I can't because it's crazy expensive and I don't have the money.

My apologies for a depressing post.

I've finally done it! I convinced somebody with my story telling an arguments alone to see the merit of a ship/couple from a TV-show!

I always knew this day would come :P

I dislike teacher/student fics because they does make it seem like it's not a complicated and nerve wrecking situation at all! They never deal with the backlash that comes and that you're left to stand alone to face the onslaught. Most of the time it isn't even romantic because it's your word against theirs and they make fun of you while the one of the pair stands back.

Sorry for my rant.

Anybody ever had a naught dream about a fictional character, that is played by a real person, and then ashamed to look at that person? :P

I always get such a happy feeling while re-reading Jane Eyre; especially the proposal scene!
