|09:58 pm - Apparently the universe decided there was not enough COMPLETELT RANDOM SHIT in my life|
Aaand back to University I do go. *sigh* Or, I should say, went, since today was Radical Fiction again. And my (half-finished) piece was one of the pieces that we workshopped today.
Which meant argh, everyone went and read it and I had to read the first page out loud. Which is never fun. On the plus side, no-one had anything too dreadful to say about it. Which is hopefully means they thought it was pretty decent (as opposed to it appalling them to speechlessness).
But that was that.
Otherwise, Creative Writing decided it wanted to try and earn back it's Wednesday Weirdness reputation again, so aside from my workshopping we ended up descending into a pit of insanity on par with the vampire incident.
Only worse. Because our recurring topic of discussion was ...sperm.
I don't think I have any words, really.
(This time was very definitely not my fault. Blame the person whose workshop piece started it all.)
And now for a dramatic subject change, because imagining my mothers face when she reads this is making me giggle.
Flist was right! The end of the last weeks FMA:B really was completely epic. It was sort of simultaneously awesome and tearjerkery. Oh Ed. Oh Al. ♥
Also: Whole lotta Xerxes flashbacks there. They really are foregrounding that particular bit of backstory. Which will be fun when a certain chapter gets animated. I had forgotten how furious Ed was at the thought of someone trying human transmutation to kill all of Xerxes - or maybe movement + voice made it more obvious to me - but knowing it was Hohenheim, and that he was tricked into it by Homunculus/Father made me shudder as I watched that bit.
And your mildly ridiculous fannish comparison for the day is:
Suzaku and Lelouch = Glinda and Elphaba. Discuss.
(This crazy though was brought to you via this Suzaku and Lelouch fanvid set to For Good from the Wicked musical. Which, if not the most technically spectacular fanvid I have ever come across, still managed to make me cry. I was having an emo moment, okay?
And the song's kinda a tearjerker on it's own, anyway Since I know there's at least one person on my flist who hasn't finished Geass, the vid has spoilers to the end of R2)
Current Mood: silly
And your class has got to be one hell of an interesting class!
It is kinda BAWWWtastic. Which is what happens when you set scenes that make me cry to a song that makes me cry. Oh, boys. (And for that matter, oh girls).
...I'm such a sap.
My creative writing classes all seem to end up that way. It might be the subject, it might be they students, it might be the tutors - I had Callum last semester who was ...interesting. And this semester is Charlie, whom I used to talk about fanfic with way back in first year, so...
