Illustmaker me

Thanks!

Thanks to There Goes My Gun (gunderpants for the FA niffle on Shifts. That was a nice way to cap the day. :D I'm currently struggling with getting the phrasing right on the elevator scene in Chapter 36 (which fell a little flat to me, so I asked for some help on it), and hopefully it will go up with the next update in the Quill version.

(no subject)

Mostly a Gratuitous Icon Post, with my spiffy new SW ranting icon, made by leelastarsky. I feel I should rant about something, to go with it. But I'm not sure what. Oh, I have some ranty feelings, but they mostly boil down to exactly what the icon expresses, and I find myself oddly disinclined to bring them to my LJ. SW wank is sometimes amusing from the outside, but I've never enjoyed it much on the inside.

"It's Stand By Me for girls!"

I was watching TV the other night, and there was a commercial for Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants came on, with the critic's glowing praise, "It's Stand By Me for girls!"

:headdesk:

No. As part of a group of girls who watched it ritually and tried to decide who was whom, I can attest that Stand By Me is, in fact, Stand By Me for girls.

I haven't read Sisterhood yet, but I had a chance to see the movie (which is the subject of the praise, anyway) in an early showing during the publicity phase. The only similarities are that they are coming of age films, and that they are about four friends. The messages in them are very different, and not on girl/boy lines.
