Self-referential humor is self-referential.
I wish I could say the delay was because I have been spending the last few days in deep contemplation about my priorities and formulating an awesome-tastic plan to take my life back. Sadly, it was filled mostly with truth or dare, junk food, vampire diaries, and star wars fanfiction.
At the minicamp I went to in California, we played version of a game called Cards Against Humanity using memes from a particular blog for the black and white cards. It's much like Apples to Apples, except the green cards are fill-in-the-blank phrases rather than an adjective to use as a theme.
The juxtaposition of two cards--"Lukeprog's love life" and "Rationalist Fanfiction"--began to hatch a peculiar idea in my head of creating a slash fic using prominent figures in the rationality community. It was just the sort of horrible, evil idea that I find impossible to resist trying. And try I did, on the plane ride back to Utah...
