I spent most of last night mainlining honorh's Who fic, and I've suddenly remembered why I don't read fic: because I like it, and then I lose track of time and end up staying awake until five in the morning reading it.
I've been avoiding reading fic even by people on my flist because I know I will get addicted and it will ruin my life because I have zero self-control when it comes to fic. Especially nicely packaged fic, which is only a few pages long, and it takes such a short time to read, so why not read another one, and oh, a chapter-fic, but it's only 15 chapters, and they're kind of short chapters, so it's just like reading a couple of short fics, right? No harm in that, why not read another? Oh, and that's an interesting premise, it's only one in the morning, I'll stop at two — oh, is it three already? Well, I'm not really tired, I'll just read this quick series of drabbles — what the hell, it's five? I have to get up tomorrow! I will go to sleep after I finish this one chapter, oh, these two chapters, well, maybe three because I have to know what happens next . . .
And then before I know it, it's daylight outside and I'm reading a paragraph for the third time because I'm so tired that I can't remember what I've just read — and I still just want to read one more chapter.
Maybe I need an intervention.
