I binge-cleaned the Desk Region of my room today. It was intense. I had to get most of my shit together to leave for school Monday. Pandas weep.

Umm... bunny.

It looks kind of scared.

I should probably bookmark the URL as "Plot Bunny" and stare at it for inspiration.

Bunny: O_O

Ummm... I forgot to mention how on Thursday, I got to watch eltea do her Frighteningly Brilliant thing again. Like, whoaaaaaa plz. :D

I wish you all could see her go at plot stuff/plot holes/making her own plots, because it's seriously like nothing else in the universe. For those of you who hadn't gathered, eltea is a genius -- not like "I love every film that director has ever made; he's a genius"; a genius genius. Okay, both: she's the most outright creative person I know, as far as concepts, connections, innovation, and invention, but she's also an I'd Talk About Test Scores But She'd Get Embarrassed kind of genius.

Other than being the queen of crossovers as far as linking two very different canons and matching up their pieces, one thing eltea likes to do is poke plot holes. She finds them, kicks them, fiddles around a bit, and then reassembles them into much more coherent things that she likes better, and that actually make sense.

With *style*.

Anyway, on Thursday, we were talking Doctor Who, which is a show with fifty years of history, currently written by a lot of very intelligent people. And eltea whipped out her logic and just... shredded a crucial part of canon. Fucking SHREDDED it. There were a couple holes I'd noticed as we'd been watching and after the fact, but she turned it into Swiss cheese, melted the cheese, and then rebuilt it into a gorgeous and incredible cheese sculpture.

Like this.

Watching her do this, which is a privilege I have a lot, is seriously like a religious experience, except with a lot of "Yeah"s, "Whoa"s, and "Holy crap, you're right"s on my end of the conversation.

It's also pretty frigging mind-blowing when she just makes stuff out of nothing. Even in Harry Potter, people can't do that. Fun factoid for you -- on Valentine's Day this year, I wrote the first chapter of "Chocolate Always Loves You Back," because my original V-Day fic was tanking. At the end of the day, I had 1,500 words of "Well, this sounds fun." I had zero plans at that point. (I don't do plans. Which is often very bad. XD)

If you haven't read the fic, it's extremely specific even from the start, despite the fact that I had nowhere for that specificity to go, and a few nights later, eltea and I were at richelle2972's, watching movies and stuff until four in the morning or something like that.

In the time it took richelle2972 to brush her teeth, wash her face, and otherwise get ready for bed, eltea made up the plot of my 40,000-word fic.

(You're like "DEEYAMN," and I'm like, "IKNORITE.")

Anyway... I'd tell you more about the DW thing, except that we're trying to turn it into a fic. Which is difficult, because it's so frigging streamlined that it's hard to find enough conflict to sustain a story. XD

The point is, eltea's brain is like a freight train, and the rest of us are on unicycles.

I'd videotape her sometime to share the nirvana, but I'm a very selfish little girl. :D

I just wanted to share that with you or something. XD

Feeling: impressedimpressed

BUNNY IS SOOOOO CUUUUUUTE!!!! My eyes went wide when I saw it and I was all, "Awwwww!!!"

As I said earlier, the gang of You + eltea = TOTALLY AWESOME WIN OF THE CENTURY and I can't wait to see what you guys have planned. :)

*glomps you both*

Hee, pretty much my reaction! XD (I found that looking for the bunny ears to put on the T. Rex, btw, so we have you to thank for the adorableness. 8D)

\o/ :3 We'll try to make it super-awesome enough to match her brilliance, trufax. XD

*return glomp!* :D

She iiiiiis. O_O

Haha. I get a flat unicycle tire a lot, imo. I must be unicycling on broken glass. XDDD

I would never be that evil! I HATE those things!

...okay, I might be that evil once every five years or so. But it's probably safe most of the time. XD

That bunny is the single cutest thing I've seen all day, and I live with two kittens.

I wonder how hard Eltea is blushing now. lol

She's going to die when she gets back and sees that I've posted this, hahaaaa. XD

I saw that bunny and made a sound not unlike a kettle whistle when the water's finally ready. wooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! ♥♥♥

Glad to be of service! :D

Bunny. 8D Also school Monday. Shiiiiioot.

What makes eltea even more amazing is that not only does she pull these things together, but she can write them, too. I can come up with an un-plot-holed thing easily, but writing it? DURRNOPE. *moron face*

*jealous of skillz*

We do not condone higher education here at Tierfal Industries.

We just pursue it relentlessly.

wtf, Tierfal Industries. wtf.

Also, I KNOW RIGHT. I guess we mortals will just have to chill and admire from afar. XD

Two genii, even if there is no competition between the two of you... as Death Note has shown, equals an explosive situation. You two have fun now :)

Bunny is scary in a cutesy, remind me of everything I neglect kind of way. XD

Haha, when we met in the sixth grade, we'd have a contest every day after P.E. of who could drink at the water fountain longest. They were sad, sad, laughable days. XD

Hahaha, I was actually slightly startled about just how frighteningly cute the thing is! XD

No, I've started to wonder what it's looking at. XD I figure the lighting's bad enough that maybe the took the picture at night, and it was like "wtf what are you doing plz"? XD


And hahaha, it's in a good way, believe me. XD

Do not want! :|

Mine are mostly just elusive -- they'll sort of hop by, grin at me, and then dart off into the undergrowth so that if I follow them, I get all sorts of cuts and brambles all over me. XD
