sub_divided: new theme

It's February! The theme this month is horror. Creepy and disturbing is the general idea here.

If anyone has any ideas for March, now would be a good time to mention them.

Computer!fic! And now that I think about it, I'd love to see some Stockholm Syndrome. Interracial/intercultural/cross-border too?

Computer fic? As in, fics where the characters use computers? Or do you mean hacker/cyberpunk fic?

Stockholm syndrome: you know, I don't think we've had a hurt/comfort month, though we almost had a "nurse back to health" month, and we just had an "illness" month (which only inner_v0ice recced anything for). Hurt/comfort is such a popular theme, maybe we should give it its own month.

Why don't we leave the interpretation up to the reccers? ^_^

Oh, is hurt/comfort the same as Stockholm Syndrome? I didn't know. ^_^;;;;

Maybe not exactly the same. ^^; Hurt/comfort is making certain characters suffer so that certain other character can rescue them. Stockholm syndrome would I guess be a part of that.

Here, have an essay: http://www.trickster.org/symposium/symp55.html

Ah, I see. I'm specifically referring to captives falling in love with their captors, to be honest, which has been dubbed Stockholm Syndrome enough times for me to associate the phrase with that. I'm actually not into hurt/comfort as a whole. But it's your rec-theme! <3

...I know I ought to have a good rec for this theme, but I can't think of them. -_-;;

Has there been a crossovers month yet?

No worries, you have a whole month to remember.
