Today is going to be kind of stressful. I have to meet Cordelia at school when the school day ends because the choir fundraiser stuff is coming in. I didn't see any way for her to be able to carry it home on the bus, so the best option seems to be me going there and then us getting a cab back.

Some of her teachers have requested Kleenex donations, so I can take those at the same time.

Cordelia has an appointment at 5:45, so we won't have time to waste on the way home. I wish the bus website was actually reliable about the bus that goes between Skyline and downtown. There are two or three different route variants (I've seen the A and C. I'm assuming there must be a B).

We'll get home from the appointment just in time to have friends over at 7:00.

I need to figure out a way to get myself to bed earlier in the evening. Scott and Cordelia really, really want me to watch TV with them which pushes getting ready for bed to 9:00 at which point, Cordelia generally wants to shower. I think that what I need to do is to get a second tube of toothpaste and to keep that and my toothbrush and bite splint in the kitchen so that I don't have to wait for her to get to done to be able to deal with that bit of my routine.

I still have the problem that 8:00 or 9:00 is the point when my writing brain suddenly turns itself on with great enthusiasm. Given that I can't get my body to nap, I have a choice between sleep and writing that's pretty frustrating.

I don't know what the hell Soci did to himself or how, but he has a scrape or tear or something in one hindfoot about the size (and very nearly the shape) of the tapered business end of a pencil.

*watches Soci tear around apt and up the bookshelves*

That said, he doesn't seem to notice ...

wtf, purg.

I had a really fun final game of the night session of Town of Salem (omg, being vet is literally the best role ever) and now I'm going to bed cuz TIRED. xD

Just wanted to say my NaNo story idea/brainstorming thingabob is still open to ideas. So far, I'm looking at a potential NaNo Original fic with femslash, involving skypirates, mystery, and a possible revenge questline. =D More ideas are welcomed! (Setting? Genres? Cryptids or not? xD )

Also - [community profile] holly_poly is open for signups! It's a multimedia exchange for OT3s and moresomes! =D I already signed up and sign ups look a little slow, so come on! (Maybe they're not slow, I just may be really excited about them.)

[community profile] femslashex, btw, has their collection open for extra fics/treats and author reveals haven't happened yet so maybe write a drabble for someone? I wrote one! =D I'm hoping to write more, even after reveals. =B --- I really wanted to participate in the exchange, but I wasn't confident in my writing at the time of signups so I bowed out. Now, however, I wanna WRITE SO MUCH YAY! xD

And I believe [community profile] smallfandombang is still open for signups! I still haven't decided exactly on what I want to write, but I'll think of something.

Ok, sleeeep nowwwww. =3=

We are not social people. Well, okay, we’re selectively social. We have our groups of friends that we see now and then, but we don’t generally seek out new acquaintances. This will become important in a bit.


But we do like to cook. When looking for things to do on this trip, Stephanie found this cooking class that covers several Japanese dishes, and includes a main dish of actual Kobe beef. We figured, “Sounds cool!” and signed up.

I must have done something yesterday, but I can't for the life of me remember anything. Somehow, time is getting away from me.

I posted a story for [community profile] weissvsaiyuki today. I still have four WIP that I would love to complete for the challenge, but I don't know if I'll manage any of them.

Title: One More Folded Sunset
Fandom: Weiss Kreuz
Rating: T
Pairing: Crawford/Schuldig, background Crawford/Manx
Tags: Implied/referenced rape/non-con, Implied/referenced torture, Alternate universe - canon divergence, Alternate universe - dark, Ambiguous/open ending, Amnesia

//Brad, where the fuck are we?// Once he was sure he had a connection to Brad’s mind, he opened his eyes. He felt safer that way.

//Schuldig? I wasn’t— No. That’s not true.// Brad sounded uncertain, fragmented even, in a way that scared Schuldig even more than the odd landscape and his inability to stop walking. //The hill doesn’t look that big, but it will probably take you another half an hour to get here. Things… stretch. Sort of. You’re being watched. She can’t hear when we talk like this, but she’s watching, and she’ll hear if you speak out loud. I’d come to meet you, but… I can’t. I’ll explain when you get here.//

Schuldig knew Brad well enough to know when he was lying. You’re not going to explain anything. Well, we’ve been there before. I’ll get it one way or another. He rubbed his face with one hand. Why don’t I remember anything to explain this?

The story at AO3.

I've only needed these for years, oi ... Takes a looong time to build up to the stupid lenses I need, though.

That said! My prescription has actually improved again, which, well -- given what I was like as a wee polyp and what they did to me for years to forestall disaster, improvement is always a bonus. Also I apparently have a clean bill of health as far as my eyes indicate.

Unfortunately now I'm sitting here with insanely dilated pupils and everything is wtf, lol

Netflix to Produce 30 'New' Anime Series for 2018 Release

Well, this confirms (for the time being anyway) that nu!StS is going to release next year, for what that's worth. Of course -- Netflix being Netflix -- fuck only knows it could be at any given time during next year, blah.


Directly related, we have an English voice cast for the main Bronzes and Saori, may the gods save us all.

the guy who voiced Doctor Victor for Shun? holy shit I think I may approve of this

... omg there's a lot of Fire Emblem and Bravely in here

You may get: Fic is very likely! At least a drabble 83 Or meta, or -- depending on what you poke me about -- meta burbling, or recs, or gamerules bits/suggestions or the like. There's a chance~ of icon(s) but as you can see from most of mine, my icons are kind of the opposite of fancy, lol

Please leave me: A fandom, a character, a fannish question about some detail or other, you can try with a ship but I kind of suck at writing shipping things that read as shippy (but I will try!) -- multiple requests are fine, I'll get at least one of them tackled for you *grin* You can leave actual prompts, or just a fandom/whatever, whichever floats your boat. Or you can just say "Fic or Treat!", roll your dice and take your chances ;3

Light is on for: [community profile] monthlysupergo folks, flisters, folks tossed at this post by other people, most anyone really -- knock yourselves out 83

Fandoms, etc.: Azure Striker Gunvolt, Rockman/Mega Man (Classic, X, Zero), Saint Seiya (any flavour but Episode G and Next Dimension), Final Fantasy (original, II, IV, VII, Dissidia, Theatrhythm, Brave Exvius), Bravely series (including Four Heroes Of Light), Gundam Wing/00/SEED Astray, Fire Emblem (Jugdral, Archenea including Awakening time period, Heroes), Transformers Sunbow!G1/Dreamwave/"generic G1", Kingdom Hearts, King of Fighters, Voltron Force, Tales of Destiny, Robotech (all generations), Yoroiden Samurai Troopers/Ronin Warriors, Casshern SINS, Infini-T Force, Seven Princes of the Thousand-Year Labyrinth, RG Veda -- my AO3 is a good place to see possibilities, I spose? Or feel free to poke me and check, if you have an idea because I could probably make this list even longer, lol.

Other stuff: any of my original works, Ancient Egypt (especially Dynasty 18), dinosaurs and other extinct beasties, food and anthropology thereof, bees, Legend of the Five Rings, Exalted, D&D, worldbuilding

Other info: I don't do porn, because I don't get it and therefore fail at it and want to do decently for your treats, folks ;3 And aside from that, my hard DNWs request-wise are basically no rape (and don't pull 'noncon' on me, that's still rape) and no painfully-obvious issuefic-type requests. Aside from those, knock yourselves out ~

... when you are eternally grateful that fandom --

-- where by "fandom" I mean "the network of this particular strain of fanfiction-and-et cetera-creating fans who like to think they are all that exists of 'fannishness'" --

-- has consistently, insistently ignored even the very existence of one of your favorite new things, because that means you are spared the screaming harpy madness of "fandom" going frothing insane at the very existence of one of your favorite characters due to "fandom's" inability, these days, to appreciate either nuance or the fact that said character is already having the piss taken out of them by the rest of the cast because this shit is funny.

So I am content to stay in my little nook over here enjoying the thing. No greater fandom presence required or desired, thanks, sad as it may be to say so.

I did eventually get to sleep last night. I ended up taking a second Halcion. I probably got about four hours of sleep. I'm going to have to find a way to nap today, or I'll end up too tired to manage anything myself by the time I need to eat dinner.

I'm not sure why my body wasn't willing to sleep. Scott and I took a moderately long walk, a bit more than an hour, around north campus yesterday. It would have been longer, but it started to pour, and we had to run for the car. I need to hack ten more new to me Ingress portals in order to get the silver badge for that. I'm entirely sure that I can find those on north campus. I just need to drag myself out there for it.

Maybe later today if I manage a nap.

Scott and Cordelia are both having trouble getting their phones to charge. Scott has to wiggle the connection until the charging starts and then not jostle it at all or it will stop. Cordelia's just having problems with the cord in the living room. Scott really needs to replace his phone, but we can't afford it.

In spite of taking Halcion fully two hours ago, I haven't gotten anywhere near sleep so far tonight. I feel physically wide awake, so for once it's not my brain running in circles to keep me awake. I have no idea what to do. If it wasn't almost midnight and rainy, I'd go for a walk or something. There isn't really anything I can do with physical energy while everyone else sleeps.

I think I do have to get out of bed. It's a terrible idea, but it's better than lying here, looking at the ceiling.

I ended up going with Scott to take Cordelia and her friend to the restaurant. The plan was that I'd wait wherever he and I ended up for dinner until after he took the 3-4 kids to the dance. We had trouble finding a restaurant and ended up at Seva, a vegetarian place. We tend not to go there because my food options are severely limited by needing to avoid tomatoes and peppers and walnuts and peanuts and eggs.

I ended up ordering a cup of soup and two sides, asparagus and sweet potato fries. The soup wasn't edible by me, and Scott didn't care for it either. The menu said 'butternut-apple bisque,' and I couldn't taste either apples or butternut squash. It went more toward the savory end of flavor, and I couldn't place the herbs, so I didn't force myself to eat more than a couple of spoonfuls. I was concerned that the soup contained something that would make me sick. The restaurant ended up removing the soup from our bill. We hadn't asked them to. I'd have been cranky about spending $4 on a cup of inedible soup, but I did order it, so...

I also got dessert, banana cheesecake. It was recognizably cheesecake, but even though I could see banana chunks, I couldn't taste the banana at all. Scott tried it and also couldn't taste the banana, so I'm again puzzled. I think that, when something with a particular flavor is in the name, it's weird not to be able to taste even a trace of that in the food.

Cordelia's only comment about the dance was that it was loud and that the music was terrible. I'm not sure if the latter refers to sound quality or to song choice.

Scott's parents have reserved a house for a family vacation next summer. They didn't consult with us about potential conflicts first but did consult Scott's brother and sister, so we're a bit puzzled. We won't know for at least another month whether or not Scott can get that time off, and I'm pretty sure that the timing will mean that Cordelia couldn't do choir camp even if she wanted to. (Though Scott thinks the location of the house is actually kind of near Interlochen.) Scott's parents have promised to 'help' us with the costs but want us to tell them how much we can afford to pay. Which is both reasonable and burdensome because Scott finds it shaming.

To be honest, I'm not sure we can afford anything but gas money and our share of the groceries. I'm not convinced that Scott will be able to tell his parents that. He was able to say, months ago, that we couldn't go because we couldn't afford it. Now, we can't just not do it. We have to figure out what we can scrape together and ask for the rest. I understand why Scott's parents want everyone there. They're both 75 (and will be 76 next summer), and their oldest grandchild is 18 and in college. The odds of getting him to come to future family vacations aren't really all that great. The odds of Scott's parents being up to such a vacation in three years, five years, ten years... Yeah.

Is it weird that I feel that 'tell us what you can afford, and we'll cover the rest' is more embarrassing than 'because you can't afford it, we'll cover the expenses'?
