So, in my trawl through the old fluff thread (which actually is proving both educational and entertaining and providing lots of helpful ideas and inspiration for What I Might Write Next), I came across a very old Mary Sue which I think gabrielladusultmade reference to when we had the Mary Sue challenge.
I link here because it literally made me laugh out loud. Especially the genes line. Genius!
Oh, and isn't it interesting that Charlie's always been the character of choice for Mary Sue's? Must be those arms.
I've wasted more time than I care to admit today by re-reading some of the original fluff thread at SQ. It's been very informative and is starting to give me some ideas for what I might write next.
One exchange in particular made me laugh out loud. This is the general gist of it.
moonette: Posts her first snippet on the thread.
St Margarets: That wasn't really fluff, that was flangst.
moonette (noticeably perking up): I've never heard of flangst. Tell me all about it.
ETA: Using a flangst icon made by me is an appropriate, but not essential, way of responding to this post!!
