seriously romantic: maybe someone like you by stacy wise

in maybe someone like you, katie isn't sure why she's so drawn to the kickboxing gym. or the guy with tattoos all over his arms who offers to show her around and be her trainer. ryan brincatt is too hot, too rough-around-the-edges, too much of a bad boy to be interested in a straight-laced good girl like katie.

but even as katie doubts his interest in her, her interest in him is undeniable. at first she works hard to prove herself as he trains her. but then they spend time together outside of the gym. and she enjoys his company. so when he pushes her away she's hurt and doesn't understand it. the problem is that katie has abandonment issues and deep-seated insecurities as a circumstance of being the daughter of two eminently successful parents. it's not that she doesn't measure up, she really does. but she's so hard on herself and forgets to give herself enough credit in all things.

this story is as much about katie's emotional growth and becoming a grown up as it is ryan and katie's love story. she is such a great character and even when you know she is selling herself short, you can't help but root for her happy ending.

simply catching up on all things general hospital

hmmm, it's been months since i've blogged about gh. partly this is due to the fact that i fell behind while i was traveling. partly because all the outrage lapsed into disinterest when i realized i couldn't bring myself to care anymore and everything that was happening was just so trite and boring.

some days i still feel that way. and there are still whole storylines that i either hate or just fast forward through. but there are some good things too. in no particular order, here are my thoughts on the goings-on in port charles:

1. soras [and why re-casting roles works on soaps even if you do miss the original actors]:
the new, older versions of sonny's kids are turning out to be quite enjoyable. [although hilariously, cameron whom i believe is older than molly is now younger. and because cameron is so cute, i'm kind of hoping they won't fix that. we also haven't seen spencer in ages, so he may be approaching 50.] in any case, at this point we've only seen…

genre debate: urban fantasy versus epic fantasy: team epic gets their say

Team Epic: Why I Love Epic Fantasy!
Since it's my blog, I'll go first: Epic fantasies take you on quests that take you beyond the limits of what is real. The rules can be different, they are different, and everything just matters more. It's not just one life at stake, it's lives, it's a whole world, a whole way of being. Epic fantasies force you to use your imagination and take you on an adventure to places you never thought possible, but as different as everything feels, there are still things that are always real, no matter how you write it.

Erica Cameron - Island of Exiles (The Ryogan Chronicles, #1): Why do I love epic fantasy? It's a blank slate. We can erase all of our preconceived notions of society and law and even science, throwing all of that over the side of a cliff. Epic fantasy lets us push humanity well past the breaking point with ever more impossible landscapes a…

Synopsis

What do you do when you can't control your feelings for someone? When you know you shouldn't go there? Not even in your head. 

Annie has never experienced the 'spark' with a guy-the kind of instant chemistry that steals your breath and blindsides you completely. Until a night out with friends brings her face to face with the wickedly sexy and mysterious Jack. It's not just a spark that ignites between them. It's an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.


Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who's had such a powerful impact on her and who could bend her to his will so easily, must be dangerous. But she's already in too deep. And Jack isn't only dangerous. He is forbidden.
