Creepy Gnome vid and a Brian/Justin fic rec!  
I'm posting because I awoke uber-early this morning.

Anywho, has anyone seen this video yet?

It's the story of the gnome in Argentina that a group of teenaged boys just hanging around caught on video with one of their cell phones.

The article is here, 'Creepy Gnome'.

There's a video of it there, but a bigger one that I found at youtube:

If it's a hoax, fine. It's funny.

But if it's not...

LOL! I love how it says 'town terrorized by creepy gnome.' You gotta wonder, why is everyone scared of someone less than 2 feet tall?

Maybe its the hat. Though I gotta admit, if that thing popped up outta nowhere at night, I would be creeped out to!

So I've sent chapter 9 (of Death Does Not Become Him) off to my beta so I should be posting that sometime soon.

I haven't read anything in the Brian/Justin fandom for a LONG while now, but I was looking over my flist and saw a new BJ wip by someone called crazyevildru.

I remember her!

She wrote this great long series called Two Parts of the Same. It's a series about how after Spike goes to live with Angel after Buffy loses her mother.

She's a wonderful writer and she knows how to do an amazing first person POV (interchanging one!) that makes you feel the panic and anxiety of the individual.

The Brian/Justin story I'm reccing is called Nowhere to Run. She's only up to 3 out of 10 chapters, but she's posting a chapter every other day.

It's based on a 'what if.' What if Justin had not been able to get out of harm's way at Sap's party. Of course we all know Justin and he's such a fighter, but what if he couldn't?

This is such a GREAT portrayal of EXACTLY what Justin would be like after it. PERFECT!

He's not overly being a victim and Brian is not an asshole, but he's not sappy. In fact, he's perfectly canon, because he's still the caring yet unsure Brian from early S2. Remember him? We all love that Brian. :)

I recommend you read it. She actually got me reading BJ again! :)

I'm trying to figure out if they just shot the film from way way back so the person looked small, or if it's a child they dressed up as a gnome and said, 'here walk sideways.'

And yes, the fact is in South America, there are some despots that make it so tiny villages all over the continent, want to believe such nonsense! And I do love how here, right on our soil, there are people gullible enough to believe this.

Still, it is good for amusement and I've already formulated a few gnome fics. And I think, deep down, in some tiny place inside of Maria, I wish it were true.

Just to break the monotony of real life and prove the existence of things fantastical.

I wish there were a better picture of the thing just so I could make an icon! LOL!
