Misc. things  
You know what's annoying? Someone left a review for me at FF.net, which was very critical (and had a valid point, I'm not upset about the criticism), but it was anonymous and I can't reply back to thank them for not leaving the standard 'gd fic' review.

I've got a new monitor! The old one was so dark, I couldn't see anything in one of my Nancy Drew games. The only problem with this one is that it's so much brighter that all my icons look way too bright. So now I'm worried that whatever ones I make now will either be too dark or that all the ones I've made in the past were too light. In order to figure this out, I would love some assistance.

Thanks for your help!


Hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year! I love you!

Yay for a new monitor! I like 2 best, but would be happiest with an icon halfway between two and three, if that makes sense.

good crit is a rare thing, too bad you can't reply back to it!

Happy New Year! *hugs*

Ack about the old monitor. I still remember playing one of the Myst games with Denise and missing a Very Obvious Lever because the brightness of the monitor was too low.

#3 was almost too bright...but then I realized "wait, some people really do have skin that shade"...so it has the same answer as #1 and #2 - because all are true.

I wonder if it's the same person who left me a fabulously brilliant review of awesome on a cracky one-shot crossover that I had no intention of ever looking at again. I love them for the review, on the one hand, but on the other... why that fic? Couldn't they do one of the fics I put some effort into? *woeface*

I don't know. Did your reviewer type in really, really bad...I don't even know the word for it. It wasn't chatspeak, but there were no capitals and I had to search for the end and start of sentences. It was annoying, since the points he/she was actually making were thoughtful.

He was criticizing my portrayal of Murphy in Desperate Measures and my knee jerk reaction was to write back and go 'nah-uh, Kat beta'd this and she knows things'. :p

Isn't that the way it goes, though? You work really hard on something and either no one comments or you get a bunch of 'lol gud's and you do something really quick and everyone loves it. It's the life of an artist, I suppose. *languishes*

No, mine was really coherent and quite wonderful. He/she/it had obviously spent a lot of time thinking about my fic and then typing up the review, which made me no end of gleeful. I just wish I could find them and make them look at all my other stuff.

Heee! I appreciate the compliment, but everyone knows that Priscellie is Canon Goddess for bookverse. *nods wisely* You're Canon Goddess for TVverse, incidentally; it are trufax.

Augh, I know. The quick ones get the worship and the ones you work your ass off on... nothing. Though I'm pretty sure that in my case at least it's because the ones I tend to work on tend to be OC-heavy, and people don't like OCs. Or else they go "OMG SUE," knee-jerk.

*languishes with you* *on the languishing couch*

Yay for new monitor!
Icon wise 1 is too dark on mine but the other 2 are both fine.
