Inside the Freezer

Don't ask for a logical explanation...there isn't one

Am presently stuck at impossibly long dinner. If I don’t escape soon, I will post the snippet tomorrow. #failfailfaillllllsorreysorrrrrrrysorrryy

(Though on the bright side, it IS a funny one, featuring 3 out of 4 marauders and the topic of love and also some strong clues about the title I still haven’t decided on)

(Yes, he’s the one out of four)

(But that’s spoilery in itself, yes?)

(Can you tell I don’t trust tags while using mobile?)

(Also this dinner is boring)

Anonymous asked: "Despite the fact that I thought the lyrics were 'bakers gonna bake bake bake bake' I actually really like Shake it off. It's really grown on me. Hated it the first time I heard it, but think about how different We are never getting back together is to the rest of red. Maybe the debut single of the album will always be slightly more 'pop'ish than the rest of the album. Either way, I am totally hyped for 1989."

(lbr…we all thought Taylor had some sudden fixation with bakers)

I didn’t hate it at first, but I was pretty ehh and whatever it’s a single I never really love her singles, but after listening to it (repeatedly) today…it is super catchy. I like it. It’s fun. Like I said before, I have some reservations about this late 80s/pop inspiration, but I had reservations about Red too and I ended up loving that album, schizophrenic as it was. So I am hopeful. Taylor has never let me down before.

Ummmm…

You do know Commentarius isn’t being updated tomorrow, right?

Unless this is talking about something else? Please be talking about something else. But 1 year anniversary has me thinking otherwise…ah. Sorry. I’m not sure where the lines got crossed but there will be no update tomorrow. There was never going to be an update tomorrow. I’ll post a snippet, as you all deserve such things for your patience, but there will be no chapter. I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry?

Anonymous asked: "ok so I was rereading the date ch and does lily get off?? like is that what the whole crescendo thing was an analogy for cause the first time I read it I was like ??¿"

That is indeed what the crescendo thing is about, -ish. The general building sensations one feels, etc. Though, of course, Lily is saying she wasn’t living the crescendo life at that moment. Just playing a few scales. =P

Anonymous asked: "Hey Bee! I was wondering what were Lily's priorities now? Is it her education over James or her relationship over her education? School is about to start and idk. I need role model motivators?"

I don’t think one has to necessarily take “priority” over the other. I mean, she’s a teenage girl, her drama is in her relationships with the people around her, but her schoolwork has always been important to Lily. I don’t think it’s a pick and choose situation.

Anonymous asked: "have you read the third bridget jones diary book? if so, what did you think of it?"

No. I didn’t read the second one either, actually. But this third one held no interest for me, as soon as I heard she killed off Mark Darcy from the very start.

Anonymous asked: "Bee, help me! I was looking at my traffic stats the other day and back last year, the very first month I started ffnet I was getting 2,000+ views a month and now - when my writing has got a lot better (I think so anyway) I'm lucky to get 200. I don't know whats happened! I'm trying so much harder now and spending more time and effort on my writing but it's just not showing :( Any ideas?"

You honestly and truly can’t judge your writing by a hit number. I know it’s tempting. I know it’s inevitable to look. But you will literally only drive yourself crazy for it. There are a million reasons why someone clicks on one story but not on another. It’s completely subjective and so rarely has to do with actual quality as much as luck and circumstance. If you yourself can see you’re improving, that’s what counts! And the only way to improve more is to keep writing and to try to get feedback in the form of actual conversation, not a hit number or a quick review. Post your stories on the public tags here. Ask for critiques. Look at your old stuff and see where you can improve. Your effort is paying off! It truly is! You’ve said yourself that you can tell you’ve improved. A hit count does not change that. Own it, grit your teeth, and keep writing. If you write solely for the response of other people, you’ll never be content.

Anonymous asked: "Fave song from Red?"

"All Too Well," but I also harbor strong fondness for "Holy Ground" and "Stay Stay Stay."

Anonymous asked: "I know your on holidays, and hopefully having a fab time!, but I get really paranoid that you've fallen down a flight of stairs, become concussed and have as a result forgotten all your comm ideas, when we don't hear from you for like two days. Looking at your health record, my fears are a little justified, no? You should set up a queue to trick us out of worry Bee. Hope your holiday is fun"

Your fears are entirely justified. I cannot be trusted to look after myself. However, I am presently all in one quasi-healthy piece. I will look into this queue business, but admit to being exponentially lazy. 

Anonymous asked: "Does lily journal much at home? Or does she save her diary-ing for the chaos of Hogwarts? If she does write at home, will we ever see any of it?"

Well, a lot more happens in her day-to-day during the school year, so I’d say more then simply because of that. If/when Lily goes home at some point (aka holidays), you would see her write at home, yes.

Anonymous asked: "When's the best time of the year to visit NYC?"

Depends on what you want to do. I’d say fall, but people love winter here because of all the touristy attractions and such, so that’s fun if that’s what you’re looking for.

lydiasarrow asked: "Hey Bee! Still rereading. About MJ and his random facts... do you make them up or are they actually fact? If they're true, how do you find them? They seem pretty obscure, haha, and I'm interested in knowing."

Actually fact! Or at least, they’re meant to be. I have a friend who knows just a lot of random information, so I’ll often pick her brain, or otherwise I’ll just do a quick internet search for a relevant fact.
