Heard a great lecture from Suzanne Keen today - I think I need to my by own copy of her book Empathy and the Novel.

my answers to the ten-questions meme from this weekend, each comprising a nice little babble: Fullmetal Alchemist, SG-1, the Aubreyad, The Dark is Rising, Prydain, Eight Cousins, Star Wars, Downton Abbey, and Westmark.

I am sitting here morbidly avoiding the tab in which I have opened today's Mark Reads - it's the Choices of Master Samwise today, and I can't take this chapter, I can't, just thinking of it makes me start tearing up, I couldn't read this chapter aloud to my little sister when we were kids because it made me cry so hard. I love it so, it's the most beautiful thing that's ever happened to me. And I have the tab open and I keep, like, accidentally switching to it and then covering it up again really quick.

...

Oh, hell. Now I am crying. God, Samwise, Samwise, Samwise. Further inarticulate muttering and general weeping & gnashing of teeth will continue until morale improves.

meme, snagged from [personal profile] astridv:

Name a fandom you know (that you think I know too!) and I'll tell you

1. The first character I first fell in love with
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
3. The character everyone else loves that I don’t
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
5. The character I used to love but don’t any longer
6. The character I would totally smooch
7. The character I’d want to be like
8. The character I’d slap
9. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

Ug. I need to get going with my senior research. Unfortunately, I'm bogged down in gothic literature and feeling uninspired. I order a massive bunch of books from Amazon yesterday, which hopefully will get me going on arrival.

I'm trying to figure out why love is so important in stories. And happy endings. I mean, I know they make us happy, but I want to understand why we need them so hard. Some days I feel like I need happy endings and love stories more than I need human interaction.

I also really want to start reading Patrick O'Brian again. The read-through this weekend reminded me how passionately I love him. But, y'know. I have so much spare time. Also, I don't have a copy with me, and I think I have a lot of late fees on my public library card. End of term got kind of crazy with the taking books back on time thing.
