Dear writers of fanfiction for various shows,

could you please, PLEASE, stop referring to people's eyes as "orbs"? Mulder has "hazel orbs", Saint Oliska has "chocolate orbs". It's enough. Really.

Thank you.

It's worse when they refer to someone's breasts as orbs.

Mind, I don't think I've ever seen testicles referred to as orbs.

Also: [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants, for all your ranting about fanfic needs.

Gives the verb "orbing" a whole new meaning doesn't it?
Wasn't that the word they used in various Star Trek series? Imagine the lolz of ending up on a planet and being shaped like a giant eye because you "orbed" there.
Anyway, it is annoying. It's the same with smirking. Everybody seems to smirk all the time in the realm of fanfic.
