- Tag: t: homestuck - This blog is currently pretty much only about Homestuck and my brain problems. And maybe Homestuck is a delusion I'm having! And this is just, like, some folie à deux shit when people comment on my posts about it as if they're familiar with the subject matter. So, it could be it's just a blog about my brain problems.

- Tag: Kazuya Minekura's blog - Kazuya Minekura, the artist of the amazing Gensoumaden Saiyuki, was diagnosed with some pretty serious health issues a while back. She's been writing some very funny, angry, honest blog entries about her situation.

I've translated a number of these posts, but have fallen ridiculously behind; I encourage anyone else who'd like to pick up where I left off to do so.

- Post: The Very Small Problem - In the fall of 2010, I was diagnosed with a small tumor in my right frontal lobe. I was able to have it successfully removed in March of 2011, before it could cause any permanent brain damage. If it weren't for the existence of state high risk pools, a provision of 2010's Affordable Care Act - which some lawmakers are presently trying to repeal - it's very likely that I still wouldn't even know the tumor was there.

This post was written specifically to make American Republicans feel like jerks. I use my power for good, people.

- Tag: manga tropes - The Encyclopedia of Manga Tropes. Girl Power Corrupts may well be how you found this blog!

- Tag: a: kubo tite - In which I roundly scold Kubo Tite, artist of Bleach! Bleach vs Women and Bleach and power fantasies may well be how you found this blog! (Both of those posts contain spoilers up to chapter 395.)

- Post: TODAY I AM A DARKOVER BOOK may well be how you found this blog!

- Post: Anne Bishop does not CARE what you think and Heir to the Shadows may well etc.

- Tag: manga - I just talk about manga a lot in general.

- Tag: books - I also talk about sci-fi, fantasy, and paranormal romance novels a lot!

- Tag: i teach english - In 2009, I spent seven months teaching English to Japanese kids in Shibata, Japan. Wacky antics ensued!

- Tag: i study japanese - And in 2007-2008, I spent a year studying Japanese at the Yamasa Institute in Okazaki, Japan. Wacky antics ensued!

I have pretty strong opinions about how these axes should be labelled.

I'd be surprised if anyone was awaiting my opinion on Gay Slavefic [Lymond Chronicles|Mary Renault Book] before wading in there, but it does its thing pretty well! I bless your endeavor.

I am sleep-deprived and read the first two books in about six hours today, in between fits of stunned incoherent torpor, and other fits of impatient banging on the keyboard working on the amazing Dwarf Fortress lesbian romance novel idea I came up with sometime in the carnivorous insomniac mists of the past few days. It's about girl-version Cacame Apebald, but it's the future, so the dwarves have mecha and the elves have genetically engineered trees such that they are mean. It is my best silly concept ever and I will definitely finish it well before the fever I apparently have breaks. I'm leaving room for the possibility is that I will instead pass the fuck out in a pile of cat litter during this timeframe, but that's an equally productive course of action.

I'm pretty sure that noise outside is villains and not just a branch so I'm going to go lock myself in my room or some shit.

me: *is sitting on couch*

me, thinking: Fuck this fucking heat I'm sick of summer already! I'm going to buy a hammock, some indoor mounting hardware for the hammock, and maybe some mint extract for use in making flavored lemonade!

me: *puts items in Amazon cart while still sitting quietly on couch, then removes mint because it's probably cheaper at Food City*

My other concern for the day is the acronym TRC, which stands, unacceptably, for both "The Raven Cycle" and "Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle."
snarp: small cute androgynous android crossing arms and looking very serious (Default)
to make me feel better about various things. The other day I re-read The Ringworld Engineers and The Ringworld Throne. This had the unintended effect of making me feel worse about various things.

1) I would like to demand an apology from Little Me for reading these books and thinking they were basically fine.

2) I would like to demand an apology from my mother for never censoring my reading material.

3) I would like to demand an apology from the publishers for not insisting that the series be renamed "Orgyworld" upon Niven's initially turning in the draft for Ringworld Engineers.

4) The Ringworld is really big and has thousands of different intelligent species on it, and it's kind of cut into two separate worlds in the middle by two massive impassable oceans (the obvious implications of which are never really addressed). Pretty much every culture is nonetheless totally down for casual interspecies orgies just whenever, and will in fact be insulted if their guests do not join in the orgies. Compulsory Xeno Orgyworld.

(Bunch of goddamn Homestucks.)

5) Niven has a thing for coming up with alien species in which the women are unable to consent to and/or enjoy sex. He's got to two species with non-sentient women and one with women who don't orgasm in RE alone. Plus two where everyone goes into heat, but he obviously only deals with the effects upon women.

6) Every single person on Orgyworld is straight and cis? Every single person in every single alien species on Orgyworld, all straight and cis? How does that work logistically, even? During all those compulsory xeno orgies, in which some species' women are necessarily disinterested.

7) One species was able to form a Ringworld-spanning empire specifically because their xeno orgy skillset was so superior. Fucking Homestucks.

8) I'm reasonably certain that Consider Phlebas was Iain M. Banks throwing a semi-dignified shitfit about Larry Niven. It stopped being dignified when he blew up the orbital and you could hear the psychic echo of his scream of "THIS IS WHAT I THINK OF YOUR FUCKING RINGWORLD." The Eater sequence also wasn't subtle.

9) Seriously, where does Niven get off not addressing the world being split in half by two impassable fucking oceans.

10) Sad Larry Niven Thing: I'm sure it never even occurred to him that Teela would be a much better viewpoint character than Louis.

I didn't latch the screen door right yesterday, and today Buoyancy the Cat got it open, got his collar off, and went outside to play.

Dubiety, upset about this situation (I assume more the door being open than Buoyancy being gone) came and woke me up around two in the afternoon. Because he just wanted to be reassured that he still got petted in a world in which the door was standing open, it was another half hour before I came out and found the problem.

Fortunately for my sanity and his health, Buoyancy was just over by the shed, and came cheerfully when I called him. Two flies had gotten in, an intrusion to which the cats are not accustomed. Buoyancy has been trying to teach himself to fly in an effort to catch them, and Dubiety has been hunched poofed-up on the floor, watching them anxiously.

It is a translucent blue plastic-looking hat covering only the parts of the head affected by the specific headache which it negates.

Jimmy Buffet is probably still really happy that someone shot a cannon ball at his plane that time. It would have to be a validating experience.

Gansey frowned at the disordered handwriting. “I think he needs to come to terms with his sexuality.”


I admire this, this is good characterization. Nice job.

Medical science please get your shit together and figure out my problems. Mine specifically, start with those. I don't have time for this. I have literary masterpieces to finish, and a sarcastic congressional run to plan out.

Dear Andrew Hussie,

This is not a large enough quantity of pain.

I mean what the fuck even.
