Ganked this silly meme from laeticiav
I suppose I do lust in my heart more than I probably should. :-P
Speaking of which, sometimes when I'm in the middle of writing a story I start thinking about the characters in terms of astrology (I wouldn't say I was a full-scale believer, but it does seem to be accurate more than statistical anomalies can account for). I was leafing through my astrology book (The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need
, which, oddly enough, is just about the only astrology book you'd ever need!), and the description of someone with their moon in Scorpio was so dead on WRT the male lead of the original romance I'm writing right now that it's not even funny. I won't quote the whole thing here, but some of this was just scarily accurate:
"You are very clever at hiding your true feelings.... Though you are driven by strong passions, you tend to deny that they are your motivations.... You particularly dread any form of rejection.... There is usually a secret sorrow or trouble in the lives of Moon-Scorpios that very often concerns family problems.... Without even being aware of it, you possess a sensuality that attracts the opposite sex...."
Well, that's Pieter Van Rijn right there. Hoo, boy. And I hadn't even looked at this astrology book for at least six months, so I don't think I had any of that in my mind when I started writing. Hmm.
Speaking of Mr. Van Rijn, Fringe Benefits now has a soundtrack! Of course, since anna_disgrace
is the only person reading the story, she's the only one who will see the significance of this, but what the heck. :-P
