I haven't watched a lotta Stephen King, but so far two-fifths is prison movies, two-fifths is writer-goes-up-to-the-mountains-to-write-and-then-shit-happens movies, and one-fifth is "Christine."

Is there a Stephen King movie where an evil car breaks out of prison to go up to the mountains to write? Missed opportunity if not.

Could folks please boost this out as far as possible? I want to get it into gender-critical circles.

Could people send me links to articles about specific incidences of cisgender men legally identifying as women in order to access female spaces and abuse cisgender women?

I was like that ("my brain doesn't work that way") until Strange Magic. It's a funny old world

@aldersprig mh, I consider possibilities sometimes, but not elaborate crossover fics

That there is a squid that eliminates it's own shadow. It uses a combination of light detectors on its back and bioluminescent bacteria in it's gut controlled by a 'shutter' to perfectly match the brightness of the moon and stars above the water

I guess one could argue that Hook being "the only man Long John Silver feared" and Peter Pan at least believing he had killed Silver makes the whole Peter Pan thing fanfic.
I find the idea rather delightful. ^_^

Quoted from J.M. Barrie's novel Peter And Wendy which I don't rmember seeing in a adaptation:
No words of mine can tell you how Wendy despised those pirates. To the boys there was at least some glamour in the pirate calling; but all that she saw was that the ship had not been scrubbed for years. There was not a porthole, on the grimy glass of which you might not have written with your finger “Dirty pig;” and she had already written it on several.

@monorail When I stay up wayyy too long there's a point at which I become too tired to fall asleep, which might feel similar.

@monorail Do you get annoyed when people mistake holly for mistletoe?
