I'm from London and I've been reading this for some time now and since I have finished my exams I thought it would be nice to join. I read QC as well and found this pages unbound.
see you all around

How's the snow?

Heh.... this and QC are my favorite internets reading lately. I spend an awful lot of time in Northampton, MA, where QC is set, and every time I go to Haymarket Café (locally referred to as "Gaymarket," oh yes) or wander around downtown/near Smith College, I just giggle, because the parody is excellent. Admittedly, Gaymarket has the best smoothies... like The Spanking. No, I'm not kidding. And now I want one...a smoothie, that is.

I wonder if MeiLin ever takes ideas from local settings, just out of curiosity. It seems a natural thing to do.

the snow has disappeared now, but it was amazing haven't seen snow in ages and London was left at a standstill for two days, worse elsewhere.

That's really cool living in MA, who's your fav character in both?
i like Faye she's a bit like me and i like Brinnid too.

Heh, I'd have to say Hanners and Sedra. Though, that'd make a really interesting crossover fic. Uh. I'll be....over here....

I'm thinking maybe Connin because he could, like, touch her telekinetically or something...

Oh thanks, y'all got me started trying to figure out other QC/IH crossover pairings and now I've got this image of Pintsize sleazily hitting on Allis and sharing porn pics with Senik.

Someone pass the brain-bleach, please.

If you happen to find some brain bleach that doesn't involve booze you can light on fire, send me some. With my friends and some of their comments, I could always stand to have a flask of it tucked in my pocket, not to mention some of TheBoy's posts Blum 3

I don't know who'd win that one! Sedra and Faye could have a snark-off. Marten and Temmin could totally compare nice guy notes. Connin and Sven could trade seduction techniques. splorfle!

Thanks for introducing yourself! I was in London 30 years ago and loved it. I also love QC, even though I'm old enough to be Marty's mom. Er. Well. Yes. But without the career in kinky photos.

Short and sweet intro! I look forward to seeing you 'round the forum.

Hello, nice to meet you.

I also read QC and am from London. (is 'am' the correct conjugation?) I hear we're in for more snow on Tuesday.

But I'm one of those "native" English speakers who usually speak worse than ones who actually learn it >.>
"I also read QC" and "I am from London" are both correct, so what you wrote looks and sounds correct to me.

It is in American English, I'm pretty sure. Can't vouch for other flavors.

If Taka's from Britain and said it originally and three American English speakers just OK'd it, it should be good for the majority of English spoken natively. Anyone a native speaker of, say, Indian or Australian English?

I might argue that it should be "and I am from..." For example, there's a difference between "I run outside and play" and "I run and play outside" Which could stem from [run outside] as a verb+particle construction versus [[run] and [play]] outside - or even [[run] and [[play] outside]], depending on the context and intonation. This suggests that otherwise permissible additions to the sentence (ie, descriptors like prepositional phrases and adjectives) can change the meaning based on placement with a conjoined verb.

Bah, ignore my syntactic wool-gathering. Since I know I've used that form, then I don't have a problem with other people using it.

There're still packets of it melting around in parks and dark streets. And they still seem an incongruity Smile
