Opinions and Emotions.

I was going to post yesterday but after everything that happened in Colorado, I was so emotionally drained and I just couldn’t find the energy to make a coherent post. I think Chris Nolan said it well when he said, “The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me.” I also feel like it hit me so hard because these were our people - fanboys and fangirls who loved something so much that they put on their costumes and their Bat-shirts and went to a midnight showing. My thoughts are with the families and survivors.

I did go see the movie today and I highly recommend you all go see it. It was the perfect final piece to Nolan’s story. Truly. I’ll make a thinky-thoughts post later, maybe after a second viewing.

Before I sign off, let me ask you peoples a few opinions on some fanfic-related things. What do you consider ‘kid!fic’ to be? Stories where the main characters have kids or stories where the main characters are kids? Or both?

I have written another story that is aimed at a reading audience of 6 year olds. I would like to make a tag for it as well as the stories I have previously written for The Nephew. I keep changing my mind on what to call them. Which one do you guys like for stories aimed at children?
