Reading [livejournal.com profile] negability (a new RPG in which reincarnated great English writers all go to high school together) instead of finishing this damned conference paper.

Christopher Marlowe on ... the boy next door:

Ok, seriously.

I didn't ask to grow up next door to him. I didn't ask for him to be a bleeding good writer with his stuff read out loud by every stupid sodding teacher since grade school...

In seventh form he STOLE ALL MY COMIC BOOKS
[sic] He said he needed them for inspiration. Bollocks he did, he just wanted them because it was bored and his stupid dad wouldn't take him to the stupid store to get the latest Goosebumps or whatever he was reading.

Beautiful.

For no particular reason, I felt like examining the Pairing List That Ate Fandom. Do not click there unless you want to see suggestions for couples that should never, ever, ever happen.....

with one, single exception,
29. Nurse (Romeo + Juliet)/Merriman (The Dark Is Rising).

That, folks, could work, and if anyone can write it, it's someone on my friendslist.

Also, the following actual and deeply bizarre incident has an obvious explanation to anyone who's been watching Dark is Rising plot at Milliways this week:

VW Polo: Small but tough.

Hermione secretly desires Meg Murry

What's Your Ultimate Fandom OTP?
Shiver My Timber--A Pirate RPG




Kazul smooches Bran Davies

What's Your Ultimate Fandom OTP?
Shiver My Timber--A Pirate RPG




If anyone writes me Hermione/Meg Murry, I will die of love.

I might just have to write the Kazul/Bran myself, though.

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] calanthe_b considers the model of the modern literary theorist here:

When I know what is meant by 'deconstruct' and 'ideology',
When I can spot assumptions hegemonic from a mile away,
When I accept my preconceptions all need reconfiguring--
When I learn words like 'feminist' and use them without sniggering...

When I learn how to jettison all concepts common-sensible,
When I forget entirely what is meant by 'comprehensible',
In short, when I've adjusted to kaleidoscopic spectacle--
Well, then I'll be postmodern which is equally respectable!
