Goddamn I've had this account for a long time... I guess it's time to delete some of the stuff that's been sitting on my profile since I was 13...
Word Choice Guide:
-Loose vs. Lose
Loose means, her pyjamas are loose on her, because she does not enjoy wearing tight clothes to bed. Lose means, oh crap, have you seen my keys? Or, perhaps more fittingly, oh crap, have you seen my white flag?
-Than vs. Then
Than is a comparative word, when you place one thing next to another. The kitchen gets more sun than my bedroom. Then is a time word. I got up, but then I went back to sleep and missed my bus. It means, like, afterwards.
-Affect vs. Effect
Affect is a verb. (How divorce affects children.) Effect is a noun. (The Butterfly Effect.) There are exceptions but most of the time not the ones you think you're making.
-Amuse vs. Bemuse
Bemuse means to confuse. It has nothing to do with amusing anybody. If somebody has a bemused expression, that means they have no idea what's going on (like me when I read those scenes.) It does not mean they think it's funny!
-Wary vs. Weary
Wary people are watching out to make sure that Lord Voldemort isn't suddenly going to pop out from behind a bush. They are being cautious. Weary people are looking for a bed to lie down and die in, because they're just so frickin tired. You can be weary of a conflict after it's been going on for a while, but you can only be wary of it before it has happened.
I'm going to enjoy adding to this list _ instead of ranting to my friends about it, poor things. (And yes, English is my second language too, before anyone yells at me about it. It's not an excuse until it's your fourth or fifth language)

When Fallen Angels Fly (by InoFan. Superawesomesauce under-appreciated 2x5x2 that it is. I argue the abundance of commas [I looked, and I didn't see any that I wouldn't use] and although the plot isn't exactly dying-worthy, it's a hell of a lot better than some of the other stuff on my favourites list, and the rest of the writing is amazing
There are many many many more in my favourites list!
