I can't read through all the melodramatic apologizing without feeling like I'm going to vomit.

So here's what I think. Plagiarism = wrong, mmkay? You're old enough to know better, mmkay? Drawing yourself up and proclaiming how penitent you are and what a horrible heap of a person this makes you is not gonna fly.

It smacks of grandstanding to me. "Woe, no one will ever love me for my writing, so I'll set myself up for a fall and make them love me for my sensitivity and humility!"

You know what? Instead of posting an eye-wateringly purple monologue about betrayal and self-loathing and hero worship, why not just send a personal apology to everyone who deserves it? Then, if you must, just post an entry saying you've done so. A brief, to-the-point entry that doesn't leave you open for more mockery. Keep it simple.

I get jittery if I swipe an adjective I once read in someone else's fic to use in mine. If someone called me out for it, I think I'd probably fall over and start convulsing before I even starting rationally considering the repercussions. The fact that this girl reproduced entire works of fiction and is essentially getting petted and "there, there"d for it really kind of sets my teeth on edge. Stealing is not going to bolster your self-esteem. Chances are, it'll make you feel much worse. Find another outlet.

I have a habit, also, of taking everything way too seriously. Maybe I should just post a smiley and a macro and pound out an allcaps affirmation of the girl's good-heartedness as a person, vast potential as a writer, and bravery at owning up to a transgression that shouldn't have fucking spawned anything but owning up.

Whatever. I'm getting cheese fries.

Sweet fluffy magnolia blossoms, y'all. I went to work, came home, and missed the wank. Oh, House fandom, you make me...eh, not proud per se, but you're kind of like that X-Files episode about the mutant inbreeds who keep their mother under the bed and occasionally have incestuous orgies? You pique my prurient interest, that's what I'm trying to say here.

Gotta catch up on said wank now. *gets popcorn and Trojans*
