Whether you're from a strange galaxy--even this one--or from a Quantum Accelerator, you've come to the right place...except that Geocities is no longer a free server. Please bookmark the new location at http://www.littlecalamity.tripod.com/index.html. See ya there!
Here you'll find fan fiction about TV shows, often crossed universes; a rather persnickety guide to grammar, spelling, punctuation, and general good writing--with examples from on-line stories; links to aphorisms and wisecracks and to genealogy gathered by Little Calamity herself; and links to whatever I feel like putting up. It's my page, and I'll link if I want to.
Learn from Ms. Nitpicker herself HOW TO WRITE ALMOST READABLE FAN FICTION--especially fun if you enjoy being scolded mercilessly for your grammatical imperfections. See actual on-line fan fiction errors. Afterward, take a test and see whether you recognize a badly written sentence when you read one. (Ms. Nitpicker does hope you don't recognize one of your own there.) Now includes the CHEAT SHEET INDEX, with helpful details about TV shows for aspiring fan fiction writers.
Enjoy aphorisms, proverbs, and quotations sorted by a number of interesting categories; you'll find things both witty and wise there.
Enjoy a collection of bawdy, sarcastic, sentimental, pessimistic, or silly poetry bound to make you laugh.
Interested in genealogy? Snips about my Adkins, Beard, Goodwin, Leavell, Marshall, Osborne, Perkins, Sailors, and Staggs relatives are found here.
Do you have an attitude (particularly after reading the rules for semi-legible fan fiction) and want me to just get lost? (It will take awhile, I'm warning you!)
