Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of
a dog it's too dark to read.

The curly-haired guy on Any Dream Will Do.
|Vendetta(s):||Bad fan-fiction writers, trilogies that were clearly meant to fit in one book, books with endings that practically force you to buy the next one in the series. People on “talent” shows that can’t sing.|
|Fan-fiction: pro or con?||Depends on the quality of the story.|
|THE FINAL 5|
|Trek or Wars:||
Wars (although Patrick Stewart is hot).
|DC or Marvel:||Neither – I like “Order Of The Stick” comics online.|
|Vampires or werewolves:||
Awww, can’t I have both?
|Dragons or Unicorns:||
Dragons -- you can do so many different things with them.
|Time travel: pro or con?:||Depends. In Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next series it works very well. If I had to read The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger again I think I’d go insane.|
