Discussion: resources. What are your favourite resources for writing? (this can be anything - software, assistive tech, recurring challenges and exchanges, comms etc) also if you think it would be useful to have, I can make a sticky with resources and try to keep it up to date especially the comms side of it.

I seem to have got mixed up and thought that this week was covered. Oops. I'll be around the rest of the week. How is the writing going today? What about the last three days?

"My Psychological Crime Thriller SNAFU" by he who watches the world burn
Explore the relationship between Hikigaya Hachiman, a talented young criminal profiler, who is haunted by his ability to empathize with serial killers and shunned by most people for his rotten eyes and his psychiatist, Dr. Yukino Yukinoshita, who is secretly a cannibalistic serial killer trying to win Hachiman's heart...literally.

It's a WIP of My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU characters run through a Hannibal filter. And so far it works.

I'm annoyed that so much of the plot is "young white guy has father issues"--because we can never get too much of that, right?--but the rest of the story mostly makes up for it. The Gargoyle Hunters--set in dangerous, broke 1970s New York City, when buildings came apart on purpose or by neglect--gives so many wonderful scenes that you can see, like when it opens with a meetup/picnic at the New Jersey dumping ground for the discarded, shattered but still beautiful remnants of the original Penn Station, though the book doesn't name it outright at the time. (I knew it immediately because I follow this stuff myself.) I empathize with the hatred of seeing sculptural beauty thoughtlessly destroyed in demolitions, but here people are doing something about it, illegally roaming rubble looking for finds and eventually trying to avoid damaged goods by truly illegally removing things before buildings are slated for destruction. Griffin's father is obsessed with New York City's architectural past, loving it far more than he seems to love his son, something especially visible as the retrieval efforts get dangerous.

How far will Griffin go for his father's love and approval? How much of a city can a small band of people steal and what dangers would they brave to get their treasures?

A Cordelia's Honor plotbunny

beatrice_otter: Aim high--you may still miss the target, but at least you won't shoot your foot off. (Aim High)
Thought up by Royce Day on the Bujold mailing list:
Honestly, there's a fanfic to written about what the poor Betan
Ambassador to Barrayar was doing during the whole mess with Cordelia's
defection to Barrayar, marriage to a war criminal, and then bringing
back Vordarian's head at the climax of the coup.
That is a fic I would love to read.

Nobody Can Save Them

Jun. 17th, 2017 08:55 am[syndicated profile] viridian5_feed
I attempted to watch the animated Batman: The Killing Joke but couldn't get too far in it since so far it could be called Sexism: The Animation. With where the source material went with Barbara, I didn't have the confidence in these creators to go there with them, especially with what they'd unnecessarily added to this version that hadn't shown up in the source material.

+++

Watching Doctor Strange, I couldn't help wondering how anyone could possibly fight in those chaotic Inception-scapes. I imagine that in actuality those battles would be very short and end in death and broken bones for almost everyone. I did appreciate the movie's trippy visuals, since it'd take an amazing writer and actor to make me feel sympathetic toward a rich, spoiled, arrogant, jackass neurosurgeon who causes most of his own problems, and the movie didn't provide those so I needed something to enjoy. (So the MCU's Doctor Strange is a less charming Tony Stark?)

Though the bit in the credits with Strange talking to Thor about Thor and Loki searching for Odin in New York City piqued my interest so much more. Give me that movie! (Though have they looked for him playing skeeball at the Jersey Shore? I'm just sayin'.) I liked how Thor almost seemed proud and "of course" about Strange mentioning that Loki is one of the threats the sorcerer supreme guards against.

Downtime

Jun. 17th, 2017 07:07 am[syndicated profile] viridian5_feed
I spent Thursday at the ER from about 9:40 am through 1:10 am--yes, really--and still none of us knows what happened to me that caused a sharp pain in my chest, weakness in my right upper arm and both thighs, severe pain in my head and neck, and a special pain in my right eye, with a streak of partial numbness from the inner corner of that eye up across my nose into my forehead. There was no reason for me to be stuck on a gurney there in the middle of two shrieking patients with dementia for about 16 hours, since all that was done was two EKGs, blood tests, a bit of heart monitoring, a chest X-ray, and a CT scan of my head, all of them coming out normal. Nurses told me I was waiting for Neurology (as a nod to my medical history, headache, and eye thing), then for a "stroke team," for several hours that I was going to be admitted to the hospital, for several hours after that that I would be sent home.

A few hours in it became obvious to me that being stuck there on a hard surface--because they had me hooked up to a heart monitor and thus tethered the whole time--stressed and severely dehydrated and hungry and in the midst off constant shouting was contributing to making me worse, but they refused to sign me out and if I left against doctors' orders an insurance and bill nightmare would ensue. The very painful IV needle they had jammed into the elbow of my dominant arm that they only briefly actually used twice over those 16 hours (once to take blood, once to inject a painkiller) also didn't help, and with how dehydrated they'd left me since I had to beg them for water, had to get them close enough to the gurney to bed since I was tethered out of their way to a heart monitor, that sucker hurt really badly. I kept begging them to take it out but no one would. What if we need to connect you to an IV bag for fluids? I told them to put the needle somewhere else then, but again they didn't bother to listen.

I'm feeling much, much better at home today, aside from being so sore from being on that gurney for so long.

I've developed a terror of being put in a hospital and not allowed to leave, and experiences like this are why. (Plus all the hospital visits involving my Chiari and the more than a month-long hell my father experienced after his emergency surgery in 2012 where the things the doctors and staff did purposefully and by accident kept messing him up worse but we couldn't get him out.)

Takeaway? I don't have heart trouble, I didn't have a stroke, and there's no bleeding in my brain. As usual, something happened to me and nobody knows what it was.
