Does anyone else feel like the world is ending and we've passed the point where anything we could do will change that?

I want to drift off to sleep and forget everything that's happened in the past 24 hours.

I feel like I might never sleep again.

I have never wanted to hug a fish so badly in my life.

So I just got back from seeing Finding Dory and I am OVERWHELMED. If the first movie felt like getting run over by the Feels Train, the sequel feels like getting run over by the Feels Steamroller.

I had heard vague rumblings on social media about how the movie was anti-ableist and supportive of those with disabilities. I went in cautiously optimistic. I was not prepared for what I found.

Spoilers ahoy! Proceed at your own risk! )

I'm contemplating making a roleplay journal for Sans the Skeleton from Undertale.

Pros: He's an interesting and well developed character. He shares my love of godawful puns. I could deal with some common fanons about him that I personally disagree with.

Cons: He clearly suffers from depression, and I deal with that enough in real life without wanting to revisit it in fiction. I'd have to decide which timeline he's coming in from and that would be a pain in the ass.

So I finally saw The Force Awakens yesterday.

As one might expect, I have Thoughts about it. Most of them are fairly trivial, but there's a big issue that's bothering me.

I’m thinking I want to write an essay about the metanarrative of Undertale and how it shows off the way stories are told in games as opposed to other, strictly linear forms of media. Possibly it will involve comparing and contrasting Undertale with The Stanley Parable. If anyone can think of other games that play with narrative that way, I’m open to suggestions.

From [personal profile] bjornwilde's journal among others:

One little compliment can make you feel amazing. So give me a compliment, anything in the entire world, even that my shoelaces are pretty. Put this in your journal. And once you get some comments, put that entry in a memory or tag and when you are feeling down, just go to that entry and this will remind you how great you are.

Don't forget to post this in your own journal so I can compliment you, too!

Dusting off an old meme

Taken, in this round, from [personal profile] themightyspazz.

step 1: put your music player on shuffle.
step 2: post the first line from the first 15 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
step 2a: Skip any instrumentals and songs where the first line is or contains the title.
step 2b: Also where the song is in a foreign language which you can't actually understand well enough to transcribe.
step 3: strike out the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
step 4: looking them up on google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
step 5: if you like the game, post your own.

My music library is extremely eclectic. You have been warned. )

Meme: What D&D Character Am I?

I Am A: Lawful Neutral Human Wizard (3rd Level)

Ability Scores:

Lawful Neutral A lawful neutral character acts as law, tradition, or a personal code directs him. Order and organization are paramount to him. He may believe in personal order and live by a code or standard, or he may believe in order for all and favor a strong, organized government. Lawful neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you are reliable and honorable without being a zealot. However, lawful neutral can be a dangerous alignment when it seeks to eliminate all freedom, choice, and diversity in society.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard's strength is her spells, everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar- a small, magical, animal companion that serves her. With a high Intelligence, wizards are capable of casting very high levels of spells.

Interview meme thingy!

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

My seven questions, from [personal profile] minkhollow:

1) What pulled you into My Little Pony? )
2) Anything you're looking forward to doing after the Milliways move? )
3) What's your dream job? )
4) If you could live anywhere you wanted, where would it be? Why? )
5) Unpopular Fandom Opinion from the fandom of your choice? )
6) All-time favorite movie? Why? )
7) If given the choice, are you a pets-having kind of person? Why or why not? )

Thinking Too Much #2: The First-Timer Effect (or, Hasbro Herps a Derp)

This installment of Thinking Too Much is about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. But only in part. More generally, I want to talk about certain challenges unique to serial fiction, particularly in the Internet age.

As before, opinions expressed herein are my own, and I don't claim to be an expert on anything spoken about below. If you disagree with anything I've written, or just want to discuss it further, feel free to comment and put your two cents in.

Cut for length, multimedia, and minor MLP spoilers )
