...may be the single weirdest hour of television ever produced. Seriously. If the first seven episodes were David Lynch not giving a fuck about what people expect and doing whatever he wanted, then this is him just letting go and not even thinking about what he wants but just disintegrating his ideas into pure patterns of light and sound. It makes Eraserhead look like Bicycle Thieves. It's beautiful, it's horrifying, and it's... rrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeally fucking weird, and somehow still advances the plot more than maybe any other episode in the entire series, and I love it, I love it, I love it.

I went to Torrid yesterday (so glad I have a local store!) and bought clothes and I might have plurged a little and materialism yay! )

This weekend was a complete bust, writing-wise. :( We had home repairs and stuff to do and I just didn't have the time. I'm going to try to get something written/posted tonight but we'll see. I'm going to do writing sprints and see how it goes. ;3; If anyone's interested in doing writing sprints with me, hit me up on discord: nanners#7965

We were supposed to be going to Bristol Comic Con but they cancelled the con. So instead we were let loose on the unsuspecting Bristol countryside.

A Weekend of (Not) Gaming

Callie coughed up her first hairball this morning. She was quite disturbed by it - it's the first time she's ever ejected anything from her mouth that way (other than the time I found her swallowing 6 inches of yarn like a sword swallower or really extreme snake charmer) and she cowered a bit until I reassured her that it was okay. Frankly I'm surprised it's taken a whole year for her to have a hairball, considering how she grooms sometimes. Also, she helpfully did so on a piece of cardboard so it was easy to clean up (ie. I didn't have to touch it).

As for the planned weekend of playing Secret World Legends... Well, we got set up on Friday, eventually, ending up as an all-Templar group wandering around a New England town beset by zombies, giant lobster people and baby Cthulhus among other interesting landmarks. I ended up playing a version of Talia who's gone Sword/Elementalism, which basically means I have a katana and can set people on fire. I also swear a lot, so I'm having a lot of fun bringing out some of my more... interesting phrases, such as "Jesus fucking Christ on a gas-powered novelty unicycle!" and "Hay, LobsterFace! your mother sleeps with seagulls!" - the latter being used as a taunt for the afore-mentioned giant lobster people.

We were all set to play on Saturday and Sunday too... but play didn't get very far on Saturday before the chat server started hyperventilating and crashing all over the place, meaning there was no way to communicate in the team. I'd like to note at this point that, when the original Secret World game launched in 2013, the chat server had the exact same problem, leaving me to conclude that in four years they never had the idea to actually fix or upgrade the chat servers. So the game announced there was going to be a couple of hours downtime to fix this and some other problems on Sunday.

On Sunday, two hours became three. Then five. Then eight. Which was about the point we all went, "You know what, we'd be better trying this again tomorrow." Eventually this morning, the devs posted about the "extended downtime", explaining that there had been a bug allowing people to duplicate money and so that needed to be fixed pronto before people started dupin rares and the game would be gone to the Americans (that's some vintage CoX humour for you there). There was also a brief mention of the chat/community server being fixed as well... but when I was creating an alt and getting him through the tutorial, I saw the community server crash again. Ah well, at least it reconnected this time. We'll just have to see what the evening holds...

Last week, I finished listening to The Obelisk Gate, the second book in the Broken Earth series by N K Jemisin.

I was very interested that it started with the death of the three-year-old boy, which happened at the beginning of the first book, only this time it was told from the point of view of the father, who actually killed him. It was certainly a bold place to start the story, particularly since it presented him, if not in a sympathetic light, but definitely in a way that made his actions understandable.

While the first book was split into three narratives that showed three very different times in the protagonist's life, this book was split between her story continuing from where the first book ended, and the very different perspective of her eight-year-old daughter, who was taken away by the father after he killed her brother.

I preferred the storyline with the little girl, but the other one also developed in some interesting ways. There was a great deal of moral ambiguity, and all the characters had a lot of facets. The protagonists gained more flaws and the antagonists were portrayed with more depth, which made the various conflicts in the story infinitely more complex.

As with the first book, though, it was pretty grim and I was about ready to give up on the series, since I didn't feel attached enough to the characters, and some of the plot details were a bit hard to follow. Then the ending set up the next stage of the story in such a way that I was suddenly very keen to find out what happens next - and so I will persevere through to the end of the trilogy. Not right away, though - I need to clear out my brain with something a bit jollier first!

When It Rains…
by Dialecticdreamer/Sarah Williams
part 1 of 1, complete
word count (story only): 1398


::This takes place several hours after “Butterfly Effect,” and is therefore part of the Mercedes group of stories set in the Polychrome Heroics universe. No spoilers, but for those who figure out what's going on, DON'T tell Joshua, please! (Laugh.) ::




When the van pulled into a parking space in a narrow rest stop dominated by a long, low building lit with wall-mounted solar lights, Cash whispered a request to Officer Tull as he set the emergency brake.

Kais still slept stretched on the sofa, under a sky blue fuzzy blanket with satin edging. In the back of the van, G slept with his bare feet jammed out at an angle, but every other inch of him covered by the puffy comforter and crisply striped sheet. Not even the boy's floppy blond hair was visible.

Joshua managed to retrieve the walker without waking his son, and had it unfolded by the time the lift touched pavement. He grinned at Cash as the younger man eased out of the cab. “You know, it's kind of weird to be the old guy who's still awake on this road trip,” he admitted.

It was awesome! The Quebec national holiday and pride month together, pretty cool.

(The house always had a different flag up every time I go by, it's fun to look and see if I can guess what's up.)

So happy (belated) St. Jean Baptiste, everyone! And happy pride :)

[community profile] fandomgiftbox is running again in July-August. It works a little like Fandom Stocking, but is in the middle of the year, instead of the end when all the Yuletide/Santa exchanges take place.

You post a comment with the lists of your requests for fandoms/characters/prompts, and the type of gifts you'd like to receive, and the mods post your lists in a separate post which is temporarily screened. People may then gift you fic and art based on what you've posted.

You don't have to gift other people - it's not an exchange. However, it's hoped you'll go looking for someone who has interests that match yours and give them a little something.

Sign Ups at [community profile] fandomgiftbox run until the 7th July.

With two assignments and a pinch hit to get done in the next week, none of which are even close to completed, along with both the Porn Battle community ([community profile] pbam) and the Fan Flashworks community ([community profile] fan_flashworks) running amnesty weeks, it may not have been the wisest time to subscribe to Netflix.

But I do have Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries, Sense8, and a number of movies lined up for watching...

 I sorta feel that xfiles fic must be loaded with weird kink and other shenanigans but I'm hesitant to browse for fear of crippling disappointment. 

Like im pretty sure Mulder made out with a furry in one episode. P sure that's canon. And Scully watched u guise Scully watched.

The DOMA arc of Yugioh DM was a toxic cancer that is to blame for the direction of much of the franchise.

Yugioh GX was a garbage fire that was then hit with a nuclear bomb.

Yugioh 5Ds started promsingly but crashed and burned hard.

Yugioh Zexal was bad all the way through.

Yugioh Arc-V fumbled here and there but is by far the strongest and best spin-off the franchise has ever seen. It made me like Crow for pete's sake!

Yugioh VRAINS...isn't really doing it for me and if it does what I fear it is going to do, I'm likely to drop it soon.

I'm somehow in the need to write and yeah... Uh yeah, I still have this "Arashi sharehouse" story in mind. So sorry I ended up putting it in this verse. In general, I'm sorry for this.
