That's me and Edward Scissorhands today.
Officer Allen:Will he be OK, Doc?
Psychologist:The years spent in isolation have not equipped him with the tools necessary to judge right from wrong. He's had no context. He's been completely without guidance. Furthermore, his work - the garden sculptures, hairstyles and so forth - indicate that he's a highly imaginative... uh... character. It seems clear that his awareness of what we call reality is radically underdeveloped.
Officer Allen:But will he be all right out there?
Psychologist:Oh yeah, he'll be fine.
Oh, man. Tim Burton somehow nearly always manages to make films that I find engaging and touching, but I think this one is now on the top of the list. High concept fantasy, not pretending to be anything other than a fable. Love.
And, in other news, I finally put most of my LoM fic into one consolidated post, even though I already had a memory index. For some reason, I'm averse to including fics written specifically for the "5 things" meme.
It is so clear that I am a vignette writer. I really need to master the basic concept of narrative one of these days. Also, I knew that I had written that much, but it still seems a little overwhelming when compiling and grabbing pull quotes.
And, it's no lie when I say I'm primarily gen. It was something like 47 gen pieces, compared with 19 slash, 12 het and 3 other. Granted, several of those gen pieces are gen in the same way Hot Fuzz is gen, but still, that's pretty amazing.
It would be interesting to do a breakdown on how many of those fics are fluffy or morbidly depressing/dark and twisted - to see if I should be raising eyebrows when I proclaim fluffy as my default status.
