The Fanfiction Glossary including such gems as this entry:

Rice out(tm): To Rice out(TM) is to make an ass of oneself by reacting to negative feedback by insisting that one's creative work is superior in all aspects. To be fully worthy of the term, the author should throw down in public and insult both reviewers and readers alike. Inspired by a notorious hissyfit thrown on Amazon.com by the inimitable (and apparently too-good-for-an-editor) Anne Rice. The (TM) is vital because, as we all know, Ms. Rice is very protective of her trademarks...

Such of this stuff is fascinating to read.

you then will like you (or else I'll beat them

*snort* I remember reading Rice's hissyfit. Hilarious. LKH is only marginally better.

I loved the Rice hissyfit (not least from reading the reactions to it over on godawful.net). Sadly, LKH doesn't lend herslf to a nice euphonious combination like Ricing out...besides, Anne Rice is in a class of insanity allllll by herslef. LKJ is basically a fangirl who's getting paid for it, from the badly disguised Sues to the "everybody who criticizes me is just jealous and TEH MEENIES!". (Which annoys me, considering how fawningly grateful I am for any type of criticism...)

Merry Gentry is one of the biggest Mary-Sue's I've ever seen to be fair. And somehow it got published! That should give us all hope.

Oh Lord, yes. I was just starting to get sick of Anita at the time the Merry books started coming out, and was staring in complete bogglement at the endless descriptions of The Hair and The Glowy Skin and The Damn Three-Color Eyes. (Which makes me very smug that of my two non-fic OFCs, one is skinny and gawky, and the other is totally physically nondescript.)

Personally, I'm still amazed that LKH was able to publish anything after "Nightseer" (if you haven't read it, don't).

Hey, how long did it take to get your mindmap? I thought I'd signed up for one eons ago but it never appeared, and I don't know if that's normal.

No CoH tonight, right?

Daniel/sam porn break

Took a long time to arrive the first time if I remember correctly, but this one just showed up in my email. *shrugs* I likee.

And due to other things going differently, I can do CoH tonight. In fact, I'm going in in a few minutes. :)

The Glossary is way too much fun. (So is Subreality, if you have a couple of hours to play in it.) I'm just amused that I knew most of the terms already, though having a hard-n-fast definition for "Grelvish" took a load off of my mind. :-)
