Lifted from IM conversation:

     How did Hemmingway managed to write when he drank so much? *

Lavinia *seriously*:
     Hemmingway had lots of practice

D  *agrees*:
     Lots and lots and lots of practice.
     Also, I think you have to have issues

* * *

I love friends. :-)

*Note: I have discovered that after about one glass of wine I become incapable of writing anything but REALLY abstract, lyrical poetry and/or fic. And if The Sun Also Rises is to believed and translated into reality, Hemmingway was at least tipsy constantly...*shakes head in amazement*

Lifted from a Gchat convo with (who else?) [ profile] lavinialavender :

Me: Religion should whisper and seduce, and folk should fall for it because it's the thing that feels so damn good you can't stop doing it...which, may, be why I also write porn...

I'm probably channeling a bit too much torture and FC, because in conversation today, after reading one of [ profile] lavinialavender 's older fics, we had a chat and this was my stream of consciounsess ramble side of the conversation (she was much more coherent):'s been a LONG time since I saw/thought about Hellsing, so I'm trying to figure out if I can figure out what's going on...but the writing was lyrical, and lovely, and I'm just trying to nail down the details...
"Come here you pretty little details..." ::chases, nails in hand::

I think I need a break. I need to write about rainbows and unicorns or something. Wait, I do have that fic started with the killer unicorns, but that's NOT QUITE WHAT I MEANT.

May I take a moment to say that it is a constant delight when [ profile] lavinialavender and I are talking about something (most often this ends up being Freak Camp, but, you know, there are other things as well) and our minds FUSE.

Today, there was a minor character we were debating killing. We had the doc written so that it could go either way (death or just REALLY serious injury) and it was getting awkward (seeing as it's Ch. 6, and we really should start the serious editing process and try to hit Ch. 7).

We decided on DEATH, and simultaneously, via IM, gave him two thumbs down, Roman style. You have failed, gladiator of minor characterness.

(Note: we haven't talked about bread and circus games, or Roman ANYTHING in...years? Several months at least. And the last time it was probably about graffiti or mythology or something)

And then we both happily squeed.

You know, by this time, having written about 200,000 words for Freak Camp and general melding our minds and encouraging each other, you'd think it wouldn't be a surprise when we think the same thing. But it always is. And it's always wonderful.

Lavinia, bust collaborator ever!
