The summer is almost over, Labor Day is next weekend, and school will be starting up again before I know it!

 

We’re super busy for the next couple of weeks, too. Which leaves me scattered and random.

 

Good think you guys don’t mind random!

 

I loved the story, but they have a point!

Wow, we’ve been busy around here! I missed posting the last couple of weeks because I’ve been spending weekends sleeping in a tent… I have a couple of weekends off now before our next camp-out, though.

 

Earlier this week, I saw Harrison Ford on one of those morning shows. I still love him, but I’m always surprised at how old he looks these days! In my mind, he still looks like Han Solo and Indiana Jones.

 

Anyway, that started me thinking about Star Wars and if there was any good StarWars/Twilight stuff out there. There’s actually not as much as I would have expected, but I did manage to find a few good ones!

 

I love this so much.

Let's make fun of Edward!

I’m reading Love Amongst the Ruins. It’s the most painful fic I’ve read since Dead Confederates. It’s so bad that I’m afraid I was terribly unforgiving of Dead Confederates. Maybe I should give it another chance. I’m thinking I might finish LAtR, read something brainy and important, and then re-read Dead Confederates with a fresh perspective. Maybe I’ll even read the Jane Auel series starting with the second book. DragonWife know how significant it is that I’d even consider picking up Jane Auel.

So, why is Love Amongst the Ruins so bad? At first it seems like it’ll be a pretty standard broken Edward and broken Bella find each other story. Sadly, this Edward is extra pitiful. Ya know how Twi-haters complain that movie Edward is all broody and self hating to the point of nausea? Yeah, this Edward is like that. I don’t even feel bad for him. I’m halfway through (376 pages so far) and he hasn’t made a dent in my heart. Instead of the beautiful man described I envision Christian Slater from Heathers – forced darkness, hunched over not from crippling injury but with hate and extreme selfishness. This story made me bored of Edward. I hate not adoring Edward. It’s so fucked up.

Bella is practically normal in comparison. There’s the whole love at first sight thing which I actually get. She gets to have a dream job of cataloguing old books into a library collection. Yep, she researches and plays with old rare books all day. There’s a fascinating mystery involved that gets mentioned in the first couple chapters. The next time it was mentioned in any meaningful way is 24 chapters later. Twenty four chapters!

I’m still reading this story only because I want to know the deal with MSM’s journal, music and collection of rare books. I don’t care if Edward ever says “the words’ to Bella. I don’t care if he ever finds a way to deal with his back. I don’t care if Bella ever learns what a man whore he was once upon a time. I don’t care if Esme finds out all the secrets and fires everyone. Just get to the fucking point!
