A. list five habits/quirks/facts about yourself
B. tag five people to do the same

One: to earn money in college I was an art model in the same department and for the same teachers and with the same students I took classes with. It was a wonderful experience and, yeah, there are bronzes and oils of me out there somewhere. I have a couple of the pastels from teachers.

Two: I talk with my hands, people imply that I must have Italian in me but, sadly, no...I'm English, Welsh and German.

Three: I find hetero love stories BOR...ING, I can only read gay now and only then if they're NOT really just hetero love stories with two guys. I probably own every gay teen coming-of-age story Barnes&Noble sells. Yeah, that's right, I like 'em young which is probably more a quirk then a fact realizing that gay teen coming-of-age stories at B&N don't have much sex.
As a side note: Lauren collects Shonen Ai which means boy love and are boy with boy manga stories...the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree.

Four: I have a very easy way of doing the grocery shopping list which makes it so Lauren and I can do all of it...planning the week's meal's, shopping and putting everything away in less then two hours and only once a week. I DO NOT like grocery shopping.

Five: I've come close, on more then one occasion, to leaving this fandom because of Ethan Gold, aka 'the fiddler'. I've a lot of trouble understanding the nearly universal hate, especially as expressed by people I otherwise respect, of him and have become very protective of him. Realizing how completely polar I am in how I see him has made me question if I really belong here. And yet.

I will tag
galesweetie, seanmegansean, adrtylilsecret, fansee, and lastglances. Come play.

i was seriously waiting for someone to tag me with this. i sure am glad it was you. i find number five most interesting because i have an intense dislike of ethan completely outside of the brian/justin relationship. i just don't like people like him, who make outrageously romantic promises, et cetera. but to each his own.

Imagine he was raised in a home that played that kind of music, that he was taught, undoubtedly from the time he was two or three, to play that kind of music...very old-world...very sheltered...v v traditional. He's on his own for the first time with romantic music, and all it represents, a part of every fiber of his being. He sees Justin, undoubtedly his first real boyfriend -- I can't imagine his family knew or would have approved of his gayness so he must have hid it from them -- and he falls in love and who can blame him. Then Justin tells him all about all the things he and Brian have done, you know he did. Imagine him hearing all of that form Justin. I honestly believe he meant all of his romance, he was raised to it if cow/lip would have bothered to give him ANY backstory other then his dependence on his grandfather...his teacher and probably a very strong guiding force in his life (and I'm sure from the old-country whereever). Do you really blame him for wanting a taste of what Brian and Justin had lived for a year and a half? Sorry but I don't. I have done the same, when his age I messed up more then once, I was learning how to be a decent person and it took a while to figure out what really mattered.

I found this quote accidently one day at work, I opened a book I found laying around and there it was. I've started trying to write a backstory for Ethan and I'm using this at it's beginning. Tell me what you think.

Young people,
who are beginners in everything, cannot yet know love:
they have to learn it.
-Rainer Marie Rilke,
Letters to a Young Poet

Ethan and Justin were learning.
Think I've been thinking about this much? Just a little too much maybe?
