- 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!
My eyes are hecked up today, someone go back and check this out for me.
I hope Bismuth is actually pink and that's not just the lighting. I hope there is a gem named Pink Bismuth aka "Pepto."

I've only been awake for about nine hours, but my shambling corpse is sure it's time for bed, so.
I can't bring myself to do a Biggest Jerk run, so I watched some of it on YouTube, and now I wish I hadn't done that. I haven't had serious nightmares in a while, but, welp.

Seriously, there are a couple of details that, for me and at least a couple other people I've seen mention it, make the True Ending a lot less okay. I am upset enough by it that I'm actually thinking about writing fix-it fic, which is not my usual thing.

So, maybe avoid.
Priyanka and Peridot dysfunctional-team-up to attempt to quantify the limits of Steven's healing power using Modern Science. Connie gets a broken arm and Steven fixes it in front of them and makes them flip out, probably? Yeah. Steven and Connie are very confused and embarrassed and bored by this process, as befits children upon whom Modern Medicine has been inflicted.

Pearl vacillates wildly between helping/Porlsplaining and acting like the equivalent of an Antivax Mom - it's the Power Of Love and she doesn't trust you with her Steven's body and etc. Garnet passive-aggressively cheeses off Team Science by telling them the results of experiments before the experiments are actually performed, but after they've worn themselves out painstakingly setting them up. She's willing to waste their time, but not Steven and Connie's.

Amethyst is mostly just disappointed that this particular region of Modern Medicine never involves Steven eliminating into a jar.

Fuck your fucken flower, Fox.
It's clearly not a conscious one. Maybe the same part that managed my auditory hallucinations, when I was having those? If so, I've clearly mellowed out a little since high school, given that I rarely recite incoherent sentence fragments about dismemberment apocalypse bloodses at him.
The point is that I just realized that today, when he walks up to me, I've been reflexively saying, "LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. WE HAVE A HATER."

He scratched my hand pretty bad last night, is probably what it is. (He didn't like the noise I was making on the keyboard while engaging with Mettaton, and he attempted to put a stop to it.)

Deep sigh.

Will Undertale notice and do anything weird if I alter my HP really high or something? I would be very surprised if I manage to finish not-fighting not-Meenah before my wrists degrade into not-wrists.

Edit: I sent Temmie to college... By altering my save file so I had a lot of money.

While I'm aware that my internal reproductive organs cannot literally "twist themselves all up in rage," I'm still spending the day moving as if they're not in their usual places + speaking soothingly to them. "Do you want an NSAID guys. What NSAID you want."

She answers every question anyone ever asks of her until "When It Rains" - but no one but Steven has ever answered a question for her.

(He has answered all of them. At least one question answered, every single conversation.)

The only exception to the rule:

PERIDOT: don't you gems have anything better to do than annoy me???


Peridot has also never actually asked a non-rhetorical question of anyone but Steven - with, again, one purple exception:

AMETHYST: is it like a big hunk of granola

PERIDOT: what's granola???

Steven really is much more useful than those clods.

“Bard” is not a saleable skillset, Menolly. LEARN TO CODE

#why did this happen #this sort of shit is why i just accept homestuck's bullshit honestly #series starts out with high-fantasy story about girl becoming a bard #a few books later: COBOL #fine! #fucking fine #i was conditioned at a young age to accept that no serial narrative was ever going to maintain thematic/tonal consistency for >15pun

manyslinkingfrights replied to your post: Anne McCaffrey’s biggest failure was actually that…

wait was that shit in… The White Dragon? Something with the found spacecraft had the White Dragon’s dragon in it. The only other part I remember is that in The White Dragon there’s a line about plowed fields & sun on some choice buttock (I was 11)
It was in All The Weyrs Of Pern, I think? I can’t remember which book, the later ones are a mess and all blend together and McCaffrey cannot remember a single fucking thing from the earlier books.

But yes, Ruth goes to the spaceship, but the most important thing in there is the AI named AIVAS who teaches Menolly and the other kids how to code for some reason.

There was no sane explanation for this, just, the magic fucking AI wants Menolly to learn fucking COBOL. Filthy liberal arts institution that is Harper Hall has failed her.

Why does Florida get to vote for the candidate who sacrificed-a-goat-to-the-god-of-the-wilderness whereas Kentucky is stuck voting for the candidate who Fark-dot-com

Anne McCaffrey's biggest failure was actually that the whole series wasn't the Dragonriders and Harpers trying to learn fucking COBOL. The part where they're trying to learn COBOL was in fact really short.
