I never thought it would come to this.

So, Randa and I just got back from a back-to-back mission and it was horrible. The second one was practically Legendary, but that's not what I'm talking about. No, I'm talking about my old badfic.

It was... well, it was painful, to say the least. I think Randa and I counted eleven or twelve mini-Aragogs by the time we killed my old Sue, but there were all sorts of character ruptures and grammar screwups and blatant Sueism and UGH. Maybe I'll try to find a Time Lord agent who'd be willing to let me borrow their TARDIS and go back in time to prevent myself from ever writing that fic... But then again, if I'd never written it, I'd never have grown as a writer to find out that what I was doing was atrocious. And I did get to kill the Sue myself, which was a plus.

It was really weird, though, since she looked almost exactly like me as a kid. Randa, if you're reading this, don't you dare say a word. Actually, if you're reading this, I'll murder you in your sleep, but whatever.

Of course, the second badfic was "My Inner Life", and I think my brain is quite thoroughly frazzled from that. I'm really not happy with Randa right now. She'd swallowed an entire bottle of Bleeprin by the time we finished the mission, and I know nothing about freaking Legend of Zelda. Still, knowing nothing about a continuum is one thing, but having to watch people doing the nasty is not what I signed up for when I joined the DMS. Randa has some weird fascination with it, so good for her.

I've never wished so much in my life that I could take Bleeprin. I could really use some right now.
