Ah ha!! I might actually update 'Illegitimate Child' tonight. Already 700 words into the new chapter and I still have another POV to go and the events after.
And thanks to LeMonkey helping me out, its not going to end on this chapter.
Heh. I just started scribbling out random scenes for later on in 'Blame it on the Rain'. I feel like writing the last chapter, and writing up a few other random scenes, then tossing it off for someone else to finish up, since I can't make transitions or cohesive plots; I just get sporadic spurts of inspiration. Though it'll probably be tough, since there are few authors who would be willing to take on a round-robin, and even fewer who would willingly continue a girl/girl based plot.
Baaah. So I was working on my latest statue today; I've gotten pretty far on it; it's shaped up pretty well and got rather firm with still some plasticity to it. I've recieved a lot of stares on the desing (Expected) but most of the reactions have been positive fascinaton. The design itself has grown into what sort of looks like a quasi-tribute to Aphrodite of Melos (The armless one.) Anyhow; two guys at the table who were being idle and not doing anything (Like half the class) shoulder watched and oen said;
"So, what's that supposed to be?"
Deciding to play the ambiguous artist and see someone's interpretation, I asked him,
"What do you think it is?"
Him: It looks like a decapitated whore.
Me: ... what makes you think she's a whore?
Him: She has really small boobs.
Me: ... having small boobs makes someone a whore?
Him: If I made that, I'd give her bigger boobs.
Me: What does that have to do with it?
Him: Man... I'd make a statue with huuuge titties.
Me: Not everyone's interested in 'titties'. I don't see what that has to do with it.
Him: She has really small boobs. And she's ugly.
Him: *Blathers on for a while about how he'd like to make a statue with huge [insert slang for mammary enhancements]*
2 minutes Later--
One of the two: Man, this is gay. Gayer than that statue. *Points to me*
And then later as I tried to get the statue back onto the shelf, it tumbled of and squished on one side. It's already pretty hard, so I don't think it'll repair at all...
