A rec; about reading and writing fic

--Read this or you will perish, PERISH: Temptation by girlwishing (Harry, Remus; gen; short). Thank you, lycoris for reccing it; you really know how to make a person feel crappy. ;)

--I can only read very short fics lately. I have a good amount of time on my hands, so it's not that. I haven't any patience for reading fanfic anymore, sometimes even if it's outstanding. I was reading A Matter of Trust (Snape/Kinsley Shacklebolt) a couple weeks ago, and it is really, really great, but I can't finish it because it's so effing long. I want to know what will happen; I don't want to put forth the effort.

I think I'm tired of reading about the same characters. I don't want to be tired of HP fanfic! I love it!

I've been doing a lot more writing lately, though. Fanfic only. I'm not great at original fic. I've been veering from my favorite pairings---not only writing pairings that I find unusual but pairings that I don't even like (Harry/Ginny). It's a lot harder to read a pairing you don't like than it is to write it, for me. Still, I always have several Harry/Draco and Harry/Snape fics in the works, even if I post only about 5 or 10% of what I start.

Hey, if I had to spend all night in tears, everyone else should bloody suffer too! Just looking briefly to see how many of you have read it has nearly made me cry again. I'm SERIOUSLY pathetic! :)

*offers tissues*

I didn't cry myself, but I felt really sad. For some reason, I tend only to cry at odd moments in fics, when I don't think the author intended me to. Like in your fic Ruses, which I was rereading the other day, I started tearing up at the beginning of the second scene, when Pansy and Draco were in the carriage and she was trying to apologize to him for sleeping with Lucius; I was so sad Draco didn't have a nice, caring daddy. Wah!

Thank you. :)

I used to be like that. I still am to a degree but I also cry a lot more than I used to so. Anyway, I think it's quite reasonable to cry in that bit of Ruses - I'm glad that it manages to be moving!
