|07:23 am - and please stop that wind, too, while you're at it|
A Misanthropic Writer's Prayer
with thy Wisdom vast
and in thy Mercy infinite
Please watch over me and my creations
And lead me not into the temptation
Of searching for Rule 34 of my characters
And may nothing I ever say
Ever turn up on TVTropes
With fifteen references to anime
All of which I have never seen
Would certainly suck out loud1
Yours very truly,
1. In one variant allowed in some states, this line is replaced with "Might be construed as proof positive of the Protestant work ethic". We're working on ratifying it in other states, but they keep telling us our bootstraps aren't pulled up high enough yet.
You could do like George RR Martin and Anne Rice and just write the rule 34 stuff into your characters from the beginning.
Now I am tempted to hunt down TVTropes articles.
