this was the very first page, not where the storyline ends
Last night, rioters went berserk in Croydon, a town just down the road from me, and also attacked a few shops in my town. At lunch time today, looters (reportedly) robbed an Argos in Wimbledon which, again, is 20 minutes from here. By this afternoon, shops were boarding up all over, police were congregating and we were all sent home at 4.15.
So far *touch wood* nothing much has happened in London today. All the riots are now travelling north. This is ridiculous, infuriating and so fucking selfish. I'm so furious about this wanton destruction that I can't even articulate it properly.
I was going to write this evening, but I can't concentrate on anything but obsessively refreshing the #londonriots hashtag on twitter, waiting to see whether or not the rioting is all going to start up again, so I know I just did a fic meme, but please can we do another one? I really need some distraction.
Gakked from harriet_vane: Give me the title of one of my fics, and I'll give you three details that didn't make it into the fic. Background canon, deleted scenes, or a look into the future. My choice, but if you have a specific question you can ask it in your request.
