"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)
Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^' Rather, I think I'd just forgotten. In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online. Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD
"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"
i was that way. but when dc made kyle rayner green lantern i started reading more dc and less marvel. i think part of it had to do with marvel being very familiar to me, while dc was pretty much a new universe to explore
