yoshitoshi: caocao

Things people have said

paleaswater's dictum sneaks up behind me and hits me over the head. Hmm... well, I think on this the Chinese fans are like the Japanese fans: fanfics should be on crack/corrective AU... Only the original series should be in character.

'Only the original series should be in character.' Rank heresy: but oh so madly and temptingly logical.

From somewhere else, quoting without book: The story doesn't need to be perfect. The story needs to be written. That should be so simple. If only the story's lack of perfection didn't get in the way of its being written.

And otherwise I finally have a copy of Vikram Seth's Three Chinese Poets. Rhymed translations from someone who knows how to rhyme. Collapse )
