Seen several places, ganked from [livejournal.com profile] bookelfe:

Give me the title of a story I've never written, and feedback telling me what you liked best about it, and I will tell you any or all of: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got posted, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I'd been able to salvage, and possibly a short excerpt as well.

Have at, friends. :D

My favorite of yours will still, always and forever, be "Through a Glass Burning," the A:tLA dark mirrorverse fic. So creepy! (Although I am still kind of disappointed you missed the golden opportunity to give Zuko a hilarious moustache. OH WELL, I WILL RECOVER.)

Ooooooh, the one you wrote about your icon, B is for Batya, who aimed with her hand.... I love a good murder mystery, especially with the devilish twist at the end.... shades of Roger Acroyd... :)

If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times, "unless" scans much better there.

Oh, man, so many! But I think my very favorite has to be that Gargoyles fic in which your original character (and don't think I didn't recognize that transplanted Kaya, my friend) and Eliza had to run all over NYC to save the day. The geeky cantaromancer may have been a minor character, too, but I remain excessively fond of her!

I really loved your short story "R'fuah Shleima." The poignance of Jewish Tolkien-elves facing the need to go West was just lovely.

*laughing out loud uncontrollably*

You know where I am right now, yes? Also, I don't know very much Quenya.

Also, I don't know very much Quenya.

Clearly, we need to remedy this! :>

He sang me the real song he wrote about Jewish Tolkien-elves. I really hadn't known it existed; I came up with the idea completely independently.

Would you write me a story as a birthday present someday?

[identity profile] pocketnaomi.livejournal.com 2011-01-30 12:23 am (UTC)(link)
Absolutely I see why. I was just mystified before he explained and sang it for me. :)

I just finished a birthday, so you've got all the way till next January 14th to write something for me!

You're aware that I've already written that (http://www.sccs.swarthmore.edu/users/01/bnewman/songs/lyrics/Starlight-WovenBranches.txt) song (http://www.sccs.swarthmore.edu/users/01/bnewman/songs/music/Starlight-WovenBranches.mp3), right? Let me know if you want to hear it live while you conveniently have me under your roof.

I did hear it in the car today from you, and it's beautlful! Not quite that song, a different aspect of Jewish Tolkien elves, but definitely Jewish Tolkien elves nonetheless.

Thinking about "Not Tame", that Sandman/Narnia crossover, still gives me that shiver down the back of my neck.
