Fanfiction by the numbers -- An article from NY Magazine

You may recognise some of the lads in this March 2015 article from a NY Magazine issue.

On ‘Fanfiction’ and fandoms on the internet. (Spoiler: people really like One Direction):

Well this next bit certainly comes as a surprise. 

It’s almost like people genuinely seriously think Harry and Louis are in a relationship. 

How is this still a mystery to people? It’s been 5 years.

mybikeasmypride replied to your photo: Those difficulty stats though.

Okay so Veld is that hidden video game boss specifically designed to wreck peoples’ shit

It’s true though. You’re just happily running through the forest and all the sudden BAM you run into the hidden Turk Dad and he makes you use every last one of your ethers and two of your party members are dead and you only have one phoenix down left and just when you’re down to your last 100 HP, he says ‘Hi Dead, I’m Dad.’

Then you remember that you’ve not saved in a while.

Ah this first photo. Wow. Haha.

First photo: 2012?? (I think) -110kgs (242lbs)
*just a guess as I didn’t weigh myself until I was about 106kgs a fair while after that photo was taken and I started my journey.
Second photo: Today (4/10/15) -74kgs (163lbs)

Almost the same outfit. The pants are just a different colour of the same style but I owned them both at the same time.
In the first photo I remember literally always wearing tank tops and those pants, never wore shorts, I was too big by that stage, which was depressing as I had always worn shorts in the past. But yeah now most of my wardrobe is too big which is cool to experience as I never thought it would happen to me in a million years that something would be too loose. I can’t describe the feeling I get when I try on something in a clothing store and have to go get it in a size smaller because it’s too big. I remember trying on a size 18 jumper in Kmart once when I was big and I cried because it didn’t fit, not even close. Now I’m a comfortable size 12 (Australian sizing)

They say that losing weight doesn’t make you happier, but I disagree. I’m so much more comfortable and healthy in my new body than I ever was when I was big. I still have a way to go. I have loose skin and extra belly fat that I don’t want and I would like to tone up a little bit, so I’m not stopping here. I’m going to keep going until I reach my goal!! :)

Beleaguered (Or, Not Everyone Enjoys The Same Relationship With Social Media)

     A rather sloppy attempt at Light Poetry (while breaking the rules, as usual).

     This is in absolutely no way meant to offend. I had a hilarious conversation with a multi-generational group of women, the other day. It made me laugh. Hopefully, the following will do the same for you: 


She ofttimes said (with pride and glee), “Facebook is the Devil!”
avoiding travels to the past —each reunion revel
Still, near-grown kids have a way of getting what they want
and, soon Old Mom had an account, ouvert par l'enfant

Thumbs up, babies; click the kitties; sports teams on parade
faces befogged with time gone by; offense, she would evade
Friend-ing, Liking, Stalking? Dodging lunch date invitations
squabbles, real-time with her spouse (she planned no assignations)

Supper photos; gym stat updates; fundraising renewals;
virtual farming; weather info, monsoons of shiny jewels
Bikini selfies; thirsty comments (alarming in amounts)
surveys; quizzes; politics; adverse bulletin accounts

“Fly high Freak-Flag!” “Get up, Stand up!”* “Equality for all!”
“Hey, POTUS,"Tea Cups blame SCOTUS, "Frugality will fall!”
“Punch the clock; riot for rights! Join in, show your support!”
“Block the Beltway! S'ciety slumps, don’t let women abort!”

A life cocooned –on purpose, arduously obstructed
Comfort found inside her head where order was conducted
Deluged; bored; feeling harassed, traversing online —a chore,
she vowed, once her kid moved back to school —she’d Facebook NO MORE
