People have pointed out that I'm far too Gravi-centric lately, so I've gone back to my roots (a little) and, yesterday, during class, I wrote a Gundam Wing story.

You heard right. Gundam Wing. My original fandom.

Anyway, the story has been posted and I've been assured that it's not crap, so you can read it, if you want. Obviously no one is going to force you to do so. ^.~ The ficlet is rated R-ish, simply because I felt like it and because there are some yaoi themes. *shrug*

First off, I posted chapter two of Spin over on Gurabiteshiyon.net. It contains what one reviewer called "realistic sex, but really good". Be forewarned. I used references (thanks to someone's strange need to tell me about his sex life. Ewwww...).

Back on topic. I've gotten a lot of strange reviews for "April Fool", the Gundam Wing story I wrote not too long ago. Which I find odd, since I wrote it in an attempt to make people hate it... All the quote-unquote "mean" reviews I've gotten have been from FanFiction.Net (which has, of course, given me a new respect for the place. They have all the best wannabe-flamers there), but I've also gotten some surprisingly nice reviews, which makes me worry... I didn't want people to like it, after all. Anyway, the following reviews are my favorites so far. My comments are in italics.

Favorite Review Number One

I read this and wished I hadn't. (Yeah, that's about the reaction I was hoping people would have) It wasn't funny at all (newsflash: if it was supposed to be funny, I wouldn't have written it like that), and I will never read another of your fics again (*shrug* your loss. I know I'm not the best--far from it--but I also know that I do have some decent stuff out there. You shouldn't let one story alienate you, buddy). I was dissappointed with what happened to Duo because as others have said feelings do get hurt no matter what the other has done. Duo should get a gun and shove it up both Heeros for being a dickhead and Wufeis arses and pull the trigger (yeah, and people won't hate that at all. Of course not). No one should have their feelings trampled on like that. I used to like Wufei and Heero, this story made me hate them (ever so sorry that you've grown to hate fictional characters because of this story, but I wouldn't go around telling me things like that. It could encourage me and we all know we wouldn't want that).

Favorite Review Number Two

Bitch (aw, you're too kind. WAY to kind). I can't believe that you did that to Duo (believe it, girly. He's fictional. I can do whatever the hell I want). Damn it. It's cool though . . . in an annoying kind of way (wait... what? Cool? Does... not... compute...). They didn't even get to the good part! (...)

Favorite Review Number Three

YOU EVIL, EVIL PERSON (why thank you)! that is so wrong (so is your lack of capitilization skills, but do you see me complaining?). but why do i get the feeling someone had a bad april fools joke pulled on them (beats me)? I could be wrong, of course... (and you are. Stop trying to pretend you know how my mind works; you're not a psychologist. Just because I like to fuck other people over doesn't mean I'm using displacement to put my own feelings and such on them. Don't be dumb.)

I posted a new GW fic over on the GWA bulletin boards and over on FanFiction.Net (I'm so ashamed). It's called "April Fool". If you want to read it, you'll either have to look for it on either GWA or FF.net or wait until I update my web-site later this week. Either way...

On another note, check out the info page... We no longer have "friends" and "friend of" things... We have "stalking" and "stalked by". No joke.

I have to meet with Gartner (my advisor/ex-professor) today at 1:15. Let's not have a repeat of Tuesday, where I slept through the entire day, hm?

T-san got the sixth part of 'Banister' back to me today, so I went ahead and posted it over at GWA. *yawns* I'll post the seventh (and final!) part in a couple of days, I guess.

This story is a GW fan fic called "Typical Sundays." I know it's not great, but dammit, you're gonna read it anyway, you hear me? And I've been reading way too many Terry Pratchet's and Douglas Adams' books. You can tell! (They wrote the Discworld series and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, respectively, by they way.) Do NOT ignore the footnotes!

I need to go to the bathroom, Duo realized suddenly on a bright Sunday afternoon where the sun pelted down on the windows and the roof giggled aloud with every breath of wind. I need to go really bad. As he looked around the room, his heart sank into a place in the vicinity of his gut. Or perhaps his bladder, by the feel of it. Getting locked in the attic of the ever-reliable safe house when everyone else was on a mission was probably not the smartest thing he had ever done in his life. *

And how, one might ask, did our young hero manage to lock himself in the attic of the ever-reliable safe house on one of the few days that all of the others were away on missions?

Quite simply, he was trying to find a cookbook that would explain how he could make a decent omelet in less than thirteen steps and had remembered a box of books that Quatre had stored up in the attic until further notice implied that someone somewhere in the ever-reliable safe house needed them. Ironically, just before the attic door of the ever-reliable safe house had slammed and locked itself shut, he had found the book he was looking for: Cooking Omelets In Less Than Thirteen Steps (For Dummies!). However, after being locked in the attic of the ever-reliable safe house for nearly three hours, Duo had lost his craving for an omelet he could make in less than thirteen steps and was now wishing he had not had a sudden craving for omelets that he could make in less than thirteen steps in the first place and that he was now safely lodged in one of the ever-reliable safe houses bathrooms, where he could relieve his bladder and then order a pizza.

Pizza. Duo looked around for the box of books he had abandoned earlier and quickly realized that he was sitting on it. Well, perhaps sitting was not technically the correct word. Squirming would probably be a much better fit, and yet that involved sitting, in an odd way that Duo really did not care to delve into at this particular moment in time. He squirmed his way off of the box and peered in, looking for a book that would tell him
how to make a homemade latrine out of materials he could find in the attic. One titled Making a Homemade Latrine Using Materials You Can Find In Your Attic (For Dummies!), ** perhaps. However, much to Duo's great disappointment, no such book could be found in the box that Quatre had stored in an attic that contains a door that locks by itself in the ever-reliable safe house.

Damn, Duo thought as he returned to squirming atop of the box containing many useless books, and one titled You Could Be An Outhouse Constructionist In Several Easy Steps.

Duo crossed his legs, trying to rid himself of the uncomfortable feeling of an over-reactive bladder that was more than ready to explode on command. Or, if the whim became it, before the command was even issued. In fact, possibly before the command was even thought of. However, this did not seem to work, and Duo was forced to resort back to squirming atop the box.

He swore multiple times, this time aloud, and began to allow different plans that consisted of escaping and obtaining a bathroom, or a toilet, or some equivalent thereof, to seep through and into his omelet crazed and tired mind. After multiple tries to force the idea of wetting himself out of his mind, he came across, or, rather, stumbled across a momentary thought about pineapples and cheese. Wondering about the relevancy this thought had to his predicament, he squirmed yet again and began to frantically look about his surroundings.

There was a single window lodged in the opposite wall.

Before he could stop himself with a thought of embarrassment and possible stupidity, he rushed to the window and pried it open quickly. Fiddling with his zipper, he finally managed to find a suitable position and issued the command mentioned previously in this story. His bladder obeyed gratefully.

Shutting the window with a relieved sigh, Duo barely heard the indignant yell coming from below that sounded strangely like Wufei and the laughter that came from Quatre and, strangely, Heero. There was a high-pitched giggle that later was found to belong to Trowa, who had managed to sample an overabundance of laughing gas during this very high-protocol mission to the dentist office.

Cursing mildly, Duo rushed to zip his pants and cower by the door.

As soon as he leaned against the door, however, it swung open easily, revealing that it had not been locked after all, as opposed to Duo's previous beliefs.

There was a loud shout emitted from Wufei as the front door to the ever-reliable safe house was thrown open. "Maxwell! I'm going to kill you!!!"
* Duo had done many smarter things than locking himself in the attic of the ever-reliable safe house, as one can probably guess rather easily. However, he had also done many other stupid things that did not consist of locking himself in the attic room of the ever-reliable safe house on a bright Sunday afternoon when nobody else was home. Locking himself in the attic, however, had so far decided to take the cake. For that matter, it had gone a long way beyond taking the cake. It had grabbed the cake, eaten a piece, and ran for dear life before some poor, small child could realize their birthday had been ruined because some stupid event had taken his cake. And then, to make matters worse, it won several awards for being "the stupidest event involving an attic, an ever-reliable safe house, and a bright Sunday when nobody was home" known to man, boosting it's ego to the extreme and resulting in several other birthday cakes being stolen.

** Unfortunately, this book has never and most likely will never exist. Although many have come to the conclusion that the "For Dummies" books have covered virtually every topic that could possibly be formed into existence, the authoress has personally checked AmazonBooks.com or some equivalent thereof and found no such "For Dummies" book with the topic of making homemade latrines using materials found in a common household attic. There was, however, a book titled Make a Bathroom in Your Attic (For Numbskulls!), but the authoress decided that that would go against the chaos she intended the story to have and neglected to bring the thought to Duo's mind. Thus, she has again maimed and possibly destroyed all rhyme and reason that this story could possibly have. However, it was later discovered by a man named Galileo, named after the famous astronomer, that rhyme and reason have no reason (or rhyme) to exist in our realm of reality, and therefore could not be maimed or possibly destroyed by anyone, including this insane authoress who seems to be intent on imitating Terry Pratchet to the extreme with such things as these long, drawn out, and probably off topic footnotes.

And that's the end! I hope everyone liked it, but whatever. Constructive criticism is, as always, more than welcome, but niceties and very mean, harsh and rather rude comments will be publicly flogged. Have a nice day. ^_^
