Re: Explorations

Again I wonder if this is a function of YA versus "adult" books or is it a question of modern books versus classics.....The three authors that Knives mentions are all YA authors and I wonder if this purple prose drunk monkey style is just the shape of how YA works. Perhaps the target audience feeds ...

Re: Explorations

It seems to me, that you have two very interesting discussions going on here. Vampire Mythology pre-and post twilight and the whole storyteller/authorship discussion, both I think very interesting and relevant topics to discussing twilight. First can I say that what I loved about the lexicon circa r...

Re: Gutter Guys & Gals : Full Moon Baking

My favorite songs are very fluid. I have two that are rock solid always and forever my songs and then I have my favorites that stay my favorite for a few weeks to a few months. Right now, probably for the last several months it has been "Can't go back now" by The Weepies. And Aro my dear, good to se...

Re: Gutter Guys & Gals : Full Moon Baking

I'm still waiting to hear if I'll get a classroom this year and it's totally killing me.
Everyone told me that getting a teaching job would be easy but for some reason, this year, this economy is killing me.

Re: Gutter Guys & Gals : Full Moon Baking

I'm not worried so much as annoyed. I really want the movies to be over and for the fandom hysteria to subside. Perhaps when all the drama is done, Stephenie can go back to writing books! Now it just feels like the it's being drawn out even longer. I also wonder if the hype can sustain it''s self th...

Re: Gutter Guys & Gals : Full Moon Baking

Actually I didn't go to Walmart with them that day but I was in Forks with them during that weekend. The orange at walmart was for a different reason. Silly Bella wrote a HYSTERICAL fan fiction about Edward at Walmart buying condoms. Alice went with him and for some reason bought all the orange thin...

Re: Gutter Guys & Gals : Full Moon Baking

KISSING! I need me some good kissing scenes! I don't get all melty for the more descriptive, intricate, intimate scenes but the kissing! MMMMM! I also like my fictional boys a bit tortured....a bit angsty. Snark is a bonus too. Of course this is funny because I've loved Jake since NM and in that boo...

Re: Gutter Guys & Gals Annex **Eclipse Spoilers**

So maybe it's not so much about blaming the boy who left as crediting him!... Leave it to you to find some way to excuse him! But actually you make really great points. The whole arc of love, leaving, consequences and resolution...every piece is necessary even the parts the two of us struggle with....
