1. I have just rewatched "Interludes and Examinations," from B5 season 3. And I have only one thing to say about it: Kosh/Sheridan daddy!kink Y/Y? Wow, that scene in the hallway.

2. I followed a link to an Avatar story that I haven't started to read, because right at the top of the page I found this:
    TEXT KEY
    Narrative
    Thoughts/Intro/Song Lyrics
    "Spoken"
    Words on a screen/Handwritten on a page
    Stressed/Emphasized Word(s)
    "RAISED VOICE/YELLING"
    ONOMOTOPOEIA
And I was just like, I can't even deal. *stares at list again*

3. The thing about Dr. Laura's recent assholery -- short version: she said really racist things and is now threatening to leave radio to preserve her first amendment rights (both links are to critiques) -- is that I already have a song about Dr. Laura going off the air. Only that song dates to about 2001. And was about her departure from television.

OH, wait, I get it, it's like a key? To tell you what style is to indicate what? Why in god's name would you need a font style for onomatopoeia? I was completely confused, I thought maybe it was a warnings list!

re: #2.

How did the author keep things straight? Print it out and color-code it? IDEK.

Sheesh. If formatting isn't obvious from context it's probably not good formatting...

Re Dr. Laura, I love people who whine about their "First Amendment rights" when what they really want is not just freedom of speech, but freedom to speak without anyone else speaking freely back.

But without a key, how would I ever be able to tell whether a character is thinking or yelling?

(Also, I note that "song lyrics" features on the list, which is a warning in itself.)

2. Ahahaha! Onomatopoeia is like the cherry on top.

3. *rolls eyes so hard* When my face freezes like this, you'll know why.
