And if memory serves, that was the most crowded polling station I've ever been to.

Jörg says it's probably a bad sign because it means that all those people who feel abandoned and misrepresented by regular politics crawled out of their holes to vote AfD (alt-very-right).

I'm hoping that rather, more people than usual were motivated to vote for the moderates in order to prevent the AfD getting too much of a foothold. Alternatively, since one of the major candidates (Liberal Democrats, i.e., sort of centre-ish) was born and raised in our little town, maybe they all want to give him an extra push.

Well, we'll find out tomorrow, but it's stressing me TF out. I mean. A high turnout is a good thing, but not if they vote AfD! Cmon fellow Germans, don't mess this up!

It takes centuries to finally find enough guild members to attempt it, more centuries to get them to all show up at the same time so you can finally raid the damned thing.

And if you ever do manage that, just before you down the final boss, the server goes down. Always.

 My contribution to the sub-compilation on Subcreation for Silm40.

Title: Hearing the Music
Summary: At Cuivienen, the first Eldar hear the echo of the Music of the Ainur in the waters.
Rating: General - no warnings.
 

It is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet the echo of the Music of the Ainur more than in any substance that is in this Earth. (Ainulindale)

‘Listen, oh listen!’ cried Enelye.
‘The sound of flowing water?’ asked Tatie.
‘It is a world,’ mused Enel.
‘But is it this world?’ asked Iminye.
‘Or another one?’ asked Imin.
‘Can we make it?’ asked Tata.

playing Dragon Age: Origins. Duncan was a babe, but I've moved on to Alistair because he plays with my dog. in googling which gifts go to who I discovered what kind of fucked-up endings can happen with him if you're not playing a Human Noble, so I'm just chilling and figuring out where to go from here.


[insert rant about old white dude coming out to the land and feeling entitled to tell me what I can and cannot do with my life here]

said old white dude stomped off like a prissy little bitch when I told him to change his tone while he was talking to my mother, that she does not deserve being berated by him, so whatever you fucker, get off my land.

still have to jump through old white dude's hoops though because my mother forgot to send in the money for the land, and now we're on the verge of being foreclosed on. AGAIN. lolololol I want to die.


not getting writing done because of aforementioned hoops and also because I have to do a lot of shit outside in the small spurts of shade we get during the day. I've had a migraine nonstop since I posted the last fic, tbh, and that hasn't helped much. the only reason I'm playing DA:O is because the camera control via keyboard slows the swing down enough that it doesn't exacerbate things. which is good? but also doesn't help with productivity.

just took a benadryl for the itching/sneezing/post-nasal, so I should pass out in a couple hours. it is now raining for the first time in two weeks, whoopie. guess I'll go see about killing the zombie horde or whatever is pouring out of that castle, blah.


comments disabled because I have no wherewithal to respond to anything, soz.

Coming-out (over)sensitivity

So, eleven years ago, when I first began to suspect I was grey-asexual, I posted about my asexual character Merrick at the main asexual forum.

It didn't go well.

http://www.asexuality.org/en/topic/20059-life-prison-fantasy-story-w-asexual-character/

Rereading that thread, I'm not sure why I writhed from the comments, except that . . . Well, read on.

So I mostly avoided the asexual community from then on. Fast forward to 2017, when yes, I'm sure now that I'm grey-asexual. So I got up my courage and mentioned Merrick to another asexual person.

It didn't go well.

Subthread:

https://mobile.twitter.com/duskpeterson/status/911418499800629249

Afterwards, I tried to beat back my tears by reciting to myself the valuable mantra, "It's not about you. It's not about you. You're the one who offended, so don't make this about you."

Still . . .

I wish I wasn't so darned sensitive during the coming-out stage. I went through this when I came out as bi, I went through this when I came out as nonbinary, and now I have to go through it *again*, this feeling that I'm not a proper [insert category] till I've been welcomed into the [insert category] community. (This isn't pure paranoia. My nonbinary coming-out experience in the gay/lesbian/bi community and trans community was a horror story.) And so, if I encounter even the slightest sign that I'm not 100% accepted, I curl up into a ball and whimper.

So basically, I could use a few "Yay, you're asexual!" comments from you kind folks.

Man, I'm glad for a weekend. This week was long but not because I got a lot done. It was just long because I would have rathered be back in bed.

Oh well. It's over and I get to sleep in tomorrow.

I got more writing on the novel done. Morgan's plan to seduce Quinn with cupcakes went sideways when Quinn surprised her with art supplies that brought back memories of Morgan's grandmother being mean. Abusive mean. But Quinn's revived it by offering, yup, cupcakes (hey, they were right there) and cuddles.

Yeah, I want to write them cuddling and then playing with paint afterwards. Why not?

Got this week's story uploaded everywhere. It's another Gods Above and Below story called The Shadow of Time's Courage. I didn't get the Now Available post up but once the POD has cleared I absolutely am going to get that done. Looks like Now Available posts are going up once a month or so. *sigh*

Did manage to get prep work done all the way to my next novel to come out in the first week of November. That's the first of my 3 novels in 3 months books: Day Hunt on the Final Oblivion. Need to do final proofreading, get it into POD (along with three other stories) and I'll be well ahead of schedule. I might even get it up for preorder. :D

Goals for tomorrow include going and spending my gift card at Barnes and Noble, hitting the mall, writing, shredding mountains of zucchini for zucchini bread, and that's about it, I think.

I'm off to bath and bed now--goodnight everyone!

Prompt: Abandon Ship!

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Was about to get a continuation of my "Shara Lives" story -- and I will get to that, never fear -- but let's say a bit of a recent revelation of awful about The Last Jedi sort of got me typing in my main verse again. Anyway, here's the Bespin evacuation scene.

A sudden understanding

[personal profile] maureenlycaon_dw

1m19s in. (Spoilers up the ass, watch out.)

Illidan's words gave me a long-overdue flash of insight. Over the course of six expansions, Blizzard has killed off most of the original lore characters that existed when Warcraft 3 finished -- the ones that led and helped us as well as the Big Bads. How does it plan to deal with this? What powerful NPC's will act to defend Azeroth now?

We now have the power to challenge gods and titans. And so this is what Blizzard has done, through Illidan's words: "From this day forward, the defense of our world -- of all we hold dear -- rests with you."

The dragonflights, the titans, even the naaru -- all have been pushed aside. They are no longer the guardians of the multiverse. We are, tawdry murderhoboes though we are. We no longer have immortal and supernatural beings to help. We no longer need them.

Now it’s up to us.
