For [livejournal.com profile] still_grrr's first Literature prompt, I went with "Othello". And wrote a short poem (of sorts).

This is what happens when I'm in a very odd mood...

So, I asked for fic commentary requests. And [livejournal.com profile] lavastar, who is evil, and determined that I shall never finish these things, requested a commentary for Fair Dinkum. You should probably read that before looking at this commentary.

The original fic still looks like it did, and my notes are the bits in blockquotes.

I am getting rather sick of a certain comment.

It keeps happening, every day, while I'm in the kitchen at work, waiting for my tea to brew, or standing in the lift, waiting to reach my floor, or sitting at my desk, waiting for my computer to turn on*.


Inevitably, I'll have someone look over and say:
"Must be a good book."

...because I'm reading a book. While doing something else. *gasps*


Seriously, how do normal people read books? Do they pick up the book, carry it (still closed) over to a chair, sit down, open the book, read it in an engrossed fashion, and then close it, stand up, and resume their lives?

I don't. I carry a book in one hand. It's a simple way to relieve boredom while, for instance, waiting for tea to brew. Or while stuck in a lift with people I don't know.


How is this worth commenting on?
