more pet peeves

Peeving about: 1.) Futuristic stories which have characters with some unpronounceable combination of letters for their names, especially if the names have apostrophes sprinkled all throughout them.

2.) Dangling participles and dangling phrases (absolute phrases?) starting sentences.  For example: "Hot and wet, she climbed on top of him..."  Not an exact quote, but close enough.

3.) I'm getting a little tired of werewolf stories, but if I didn't do them, I wouldn't have a whole lot to proofread or edit.

4.) Characters randomly having sex with no rationale whatsoever.  I do count "I feel horny" as a rationale, so it's not like I'm being horribly picky here.
