Inconsistency *sigh*

Forgive me if this has already been pointed out, but remember how Daniel gave this entire spiel to Wili in the series finale about how she deserved the EIC job more than he did, right before he went to find Betty (YAY!)?  Ahem.

Anyway, wasn't Wili EIC for a while, earlier in S3, and kind of, you know, sucked at it?  Magazine sales were way down since she took over because her concepts (Angelina Jolie in a block of ice, for example) were too obscure for the public.  That's why Daniel got reinstated.  He, Claire and Alexis decided she was a far better Creative Director than an EIC.  It just bugs me that the entire show was based on the premise that Daniel didn't deserve his job, was completely unprepared, and Betty had to save him, Wili was evil but she did get the shaft, blah, blah, blah, inconsistencies-cakes.

Wili, based on her past performance as EIC, could very well run MODE into the ground after Daniel leaves.  Does this bug anyone else or am I just nit-picky?  Does this mean I have to write a (lurid, smutty) fanfic about Daniel and Betty returning to MODE to clean up Wili's mess?

Snagged this from survived_it_all, who snagged it from moondustwolf and londongirl27 :D

Let others know a little more about yourself, repost this with your name followed by "ology":


What is your salad dressing of choice?

What is your favorite fast food restaurant?
Panera Bread (or, if you're talking burger joints, Burger King)

What is your favorite sit-down restaurant?
A tiny hole-in-the-wall place called the Jasmine Cafe in my hometown

On average how much of a tip do you leave at a restaurant?
10%-15%--depends on the service, I guess, but I usually just wing it.

What food could you eat every day for two weeks and not get sick of?
large, cheesy pizza

What are your pizza toppings of choice?
four kinds of cheese, bell peppers, and black olives

What do you like to put on your toast?
butter and cheese or butter and grape jam


What is the wallpaper on your computer?
a forest filled with bluebells

How many televisions are in your house?

What kind of cell phone do you have?
a dinky blue Sony-Erickson; never use it, hardly


Are you right-handed or left-handed?

Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
four teeth to make room for my braces 

What is the last heavy item you lifted?
the vacuum cleaner

Have you ever been knocked unconscious?
Nope, surprisingly enough...


If it were possible would you want to know the day you’re going to die?
Of course not.

If you can change your name to anything what would you change it to?
Either Amanda or Nicole, as people always say I look like one of those names.  Go figure.  I also just like the name Morgan.

What colors look good on you?
black, green, gold

Have you ever swallowed a non-food item by mistake?
does chewing gum count?

Have you ever saved someone's life?
Sadly, no.

Has someone ever saved yours?
All the time, I'm sure.  Batman, you can come out now!


Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100?
God, yes.  I mean, really.

Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for $200,000?
No way.

Would you never blog again for $50,000
I barely blog as it is.  Where's my cash?

Would you pose naked in a magazine for $250,000?
Not if there was a chance my family would see it.  The shoo-shoo would hit the fan...

Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
As strapped for cash as I am now, maybe...if they let me do it in increments.

Would you, without fear of punishment, take a human life for $1,000,000?
Nope...my conscience would punish me enough.  Unless that person hurt my family and/or friends, and then someone would be finding a horse head in their bed a la The Godfather.


What is in your left pocket?
No pockets as of now.

Is Napoleon Dynamite actually a good movie?
Sure it is, but not everyone is gonna get the humor, which is okay.  It's different, which is the most admirable thing about it.

Do you have hardwood or carpet in your house?

Do you sit or stand in the shower?

Could you live with roommates?
Yep, and I'll probably have to.  No crackheads, though.

Never, except for that lame-ass parking ticket I got at college.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
Oh, geez.  Isn't that the question.

No one.  I don't text.  I want to actually talk to people.

Last person who called you?

Last person you hugged?
My mommy.



All of them have their appeal.

It's a toss-up between Christmas and Thanksgiving.  Both of them kinda blend together nowadays.

Day of the week:



Missing someone?
Mmmm, I guess.  But not painfully so.

Anxious and groggy.  I need a job desperately.

Listening to?
"Viva La Vida" by Coldplay.  Or is it Cold Play?  I forget.

Nothing until Ugly Betty starts back up.  Reality tv bites.

Worrying About?
my last semester of college, what to do after graduation, finding a job, whether or not Daniel and Betty will ever hook up...

An old ratty t-shirt and my kitty-cat pj bottoms.


Q. First place you went this morning?
The living room to read the paper.

Pretty much...if I'm not smiling I look surly.

The Dark Knight

Last TV show?
Charmed rerun

Are you a friendly person?
Oh, yes.  Unless someone's a deliberate jackass, and then I can get pretty testy.

Weekend's almost over...and I don't plan that far ahead.

The Dreaded Love Triangle and Other Spooky Tales: Chapter One

Hi, everyone!  This is my first fanfic ever, so be gentle ;)  Huge Betty/Daniel shipper here so be forewarned that I don’t write for any other UB pairing, at least in the long-term.  I know, I’m biased like that.  Anyway, hope you like it!

Also, I realize the first chapter is kinda slow-moving but it will pick up soon.  Just laying the groundwork.


Disclaimer:  I don’t own Ugly Betty or any of its characters; if I did, it would be the Daniel and Betty Show.


Description: When the employees of Mode go on a work retreat, hijinks, love, jealously and all that good stuff occurs. Somewhat based on a comment Michael Urie made in the Ugly Betty Season 1 DVD. AU.


Pairing: BxD all the way, babay!


I crave feedback, so please do!  Any suggestions that help me improve are most welcome...Thanks!
