Is it possible to cringe so hard you turn inside out?
While poking through my writing folder for an old piece of feedback that I'd thought was on a now-deleted ff.net story (but wasn't; damn, I guess it was e-mail feedback, which most likely means it was lost in the Great Forgot To Back Up Eudora Meltdown of 2003) I made the mistake of browsing through my old Mary Sue stuff. Which can't exactly be called fic, as none of them were stories per se, just very bad vignettes, missing scenes, family trees... setlists for nonexistent bands...

They now live in a passworded zipfile. *g* I can't bring myself to delete them entirely, but at least it should slow me down the next time I'm feeling really masochistic in the non-fun, non-spanky way.

Hee! I still do family trees when I'm bored and have scratch paper.

setlists for nonexistent bands

CD liner notes for never-released CDs. Imagining who I would thank if I was one day famous and made a CD of music. Never mind that I'd need to learn to sing or play an instrument first.

Ha ha! I'm not wearing a dress. I'm not even wearing pants.

Wedding invitations. Made in MS Paint. Guest lists whose fictional guests spanned at least 6 fandoms.

Hee - well, <denial>it wasn't my wedding; it was my Mary Sue's</denial>. Who does not share my name.

Nor were Troi and Riker on the list.

Holmes and Watson were, though.

and can you forgive me for wanting to read these things? it's so horrifying to see the things that you wrote way back when, I cringe when I even think about it.

It's always a shock to the system to go back and revisit old fic. ::shudders::

This stuff doesn't even qualify as fic. There'd have to be like, a beginning. And an end. And a story in the middle, for that. ;-) It's just endless vignettes with painfully precious dialogue.
