Not Secret: I read quite a lot of fanfic (when I am able).

Fact: I read most (or all of it) online.

Secret: I really don't like reading things online very much. I love sitting down (or as the case often is, lounging around) reading things made of paper. (This shames the green dragon within me.)

Fact: Jacqueline had £105 printing credit because she's in a computery course. She took me on campus to print out my Rowe forms.

Revealed Secret: We decided to use up some of her printing credit. She has been printing out sheet music. I have been printing...fanfic (double-sided print, 2-pages per side, small font, tiny margins - you're welcome, conscience).

Conclusion: I have ridiculous amounts of fanfic to sit and read with tea and a pen. (There will be hearts.)

State of Kiwi: Gleeful.

(And now for something completely different: Jacqueline got asked out by a creeper. It is partially my fault. For that, she may be dragging me with her. I deserve it.)

I invested most of my printing allowance in fanfic, too. A very good investment. Sadly, I had to dump it when I moved to London, because I moved by post and it was too heavy :(

Why on earth didn't she just decline? Women do it all the time.

Once you have the wherewithal, get a Kindle. Absolutely perfect for fanfic. I hate reading online too, so the long ones get pasted into Word and converted to Kindle. Easy and free. Not quite as satisfying as paper, perhaps, but darn handy, and eco-friendly.

I once used up 6 reams of paper on a fic, the Kindle scarcely notices the space it takes.

She declined a few times; he was very persistent and wore her down. Certainly not a good way to go about it. She ignored all his texts and calls, thankfully. Can't believe he left three voice messages; guy's a creeper!

I'm not sure how the Kindle would work out for me and fic. I love having it on paper for commenting, but secondary to that is reading online where I can keep a running notepad of comments. Does Kindle have anything useful for jotting down good notes?

:-)) Now that is an indulgence - to read the fanfic on actual paper ♥ ... you deserve it !

Me too. I can barely read anything longer than a drabble online. :(

At my school, we had unlimited printing, which I miss dearly. I used an insane amount of my own paper and ink printing for ppf.
