Naley appreciation week 2017 → Day 5: Favorite quotes. “I was so scared, so terrified. Then I saw you and I promised myself that if I could just get up, walk over to you, I’d tell you how much I need you, how much I want you and nothing else matters"
I like to save the feature bits (usually all the derpy player survey stuff) from Breakaway, the monthly game playbook the Caps give out at Verizon. Here’s December 2016, and January/February/March 2017 (I uh sorta forgot I was doing these). Click to embiggen. Notable:
Ovi and Nicky both list Gladiator as their favorite movie. They are clearly soulmates.
Everyone except Holtby said their role model growing up was their mom, their dad, or both. Not Holtby. Holtby picked… Patrick Roy. This explains so much.
Karl Alzner’s favorite sports team is the Washington Nationals because he has excellent taste and is an excellent person all around.
Not gonna lie, as much as I’ve gotten fond of him, it still gives me a pang to see Brooks Orpik take sole possession of the Brooksie nickname.
Still not over Tom and Andre’s favorite television shows being “One Tree Hill” and “The O.C.” respectively.
It’s been brought to my attention that someone in the Pitch Perfect/Bechloe fandom has been plagiarising a piece from the One Tree Hill fandom. The Bechloe writer states that it was inspired by the OTH fic, but it’s clear that really all they’ve done is replaced the names.
This is unacceptable. It’s unfair and it’s wrong. I’ve contacted ff.net about it but am yet to hear back. I haven’t contacted the author and honestly that’s because I’ve had people go off on me in the past. So I thought it best that I bring it to the fandom’s attention for no other reason than to let people know this is happening and to be on the look out for it. This is the original piece, posted in 2012: https://m.fanfiction.net/s/8628146/1/Unexpected-Love.
And this is the piece doing the plagiarising: https://m.fanfiction.net/s/12383990/1/Accidentally-In-Love.
This kind of thing is not okay.
It’s the oldest story in the world. One day you’re seventeen planning for someday. And then quietly, without ever really noticing, someday is today. And then someday is yesterday. And this is your life.
