szzzt: You know Wufei is appalled. Oh NOES! (wufei_noes)
[personal profile] szzzt
This is most of my personal GW fic rant, which is not so much a manifesta as a drinking game.

I really only posted this to try out my new icon. Please don't anyone make a voodoo doll of me...When I eventually release some GW fic into the nets, you will see I commit plenty of infelicities of my own. Just not these particular ones.

Because eyes are not eyes, but jewels. Except Heero's.
There's a lack of 03 04 here... Guess you can see what numbers I read.

  • amethyst / hyacinth / Prussian blue / violet-blue / "an odd blue"
  • Prussian blue / cobalt blue / "two pits lined with hard cobalt" / midnight blue
  • emerald / verdant
  • turquoise / cornflower-blue
  • onyx / obsidian / fiery obsidian / "dark" / velvet dark / sloe / sable / ebony

Play along with me!

  • the facades of over brilliant chipperness
  • the viscous knife of indecision
  • Treize was a man who cared so deeply that no one could understand him.
  • Then, realization struck from behind.
  • The man aimed at ducked it.
  • cotton-candy darkness
  • "It's OK, buddy. I know. Sex doesn't fix clinical depression. But I'm glad it made you feel better for a while."


  • His eyes pierced me, like a device with high mechanical advantage
  • the steely flints [flinty steels?] of his eyes struck sparks that fell into limpid pools and fizzled
  • Duo tugged his braid and folded his arms obstinately. Men! He didn't understand them!
  • Heero sighed. He wished Wufei were here. Wufei always knew how to talk to girls.

I just remembered that I hadn't checked out your list of fanfic terminology yet. So I did.

THIS IS THE BEST CHART EVER, and I laughed so much! Did you read a fic with meat hook fights, then? And if not, will you write one?

"Toast-colored lips" is still the best and I will remember it forever. Although "cotton-candy" darkness and the idea of Treize caring so deeply nobody can understand him comes close.

Sometimes I wish there were a dignified word for "nipple."

If I write a Zechs/Noin fic I plan use the extended flint, flame, and pools metaphor. Also, those last two lines cracked me up.

I will be coming back to this post many times, I expect. Thanks for sharing. :D
