Evan: "You know, none of this makes any sense."
Alex: "Good. I'd hate for things to start making sense all of a sudden. It would ruin this new trend I've got going."

minor gifted comments )

Side note, Dreamer explicitly refers to John as Thunderbird, even though his interaction with Blink is very Warpath-in-Days-of-Future-Past-like. (The great thing about the about the Proudstar brothers is that James' middle name is John, and he also went by Thunderbird for a short time after John died before taking the name Warpath. They have effectively the same powers. So basically, whatever.)

Also, this was a great episode. I love this show.

Thank you to everyone who commented and reached out after my last post. You're all very kind, and it was lovely to see some names I haven't seen post for a very long time. Seeing all the comments meant a lot and helped in what was a horrible day. And thank you to [personal profile] madam_beetroot for your card and lovely message that arrived this morning. I don't mind lurkers at all, but know I'm always here to talk to if you feel the need.

I've been to nanna's today to start help clear her house. I got to take a variety of things that meant a lot to me, nothing expensive or even useful in cases, but things that hold deep memories and I'll always treasure. I'm not going to lie, it was hard being there without her, but it has to be done. It's the first time I've helped break down a house, when dad died Pauline was obviously left behind, so it didn't have to be done. And 97 years of life leads to a lot of things to sort through.

Tomorrow it's my one year post op hospital appointment. So expect one final naval gazing post when I'm home from that.

Finally, [community profile] mini_wrimo is taking sign ups atm on both DW and LJ. I love that challenge a lot and I'll be signing up soon. It's very low key and you can set your daily word target as low or high as you like. As I have very little brain right now, I'm setting my bar low and going for 100 words a day. Who knows, I may even get a ficlet out of it somehow.

turlough: teenaged Frank Iero ((mcr) keep your soul like a secret)
[personal profile] turlough
"Wait, if you're here, where's our Frank?" Gerard interrupts.

"Isn't it like, a rule that you aren't supposed to go back in time and meet yourself?" Ray says. "Or forward, I guess."

They're both glaring at him suspiciously, like he somehow killed his future self. He can't do that, right? Unless he like, canceled his future self out by suddenly existing or something. He didn't see any other Frank around, unless he was like, hiding under the bed or something.

"He was only in there for a second!" Mikey says. "So how is he even here in the first place?"

"Yeah," Frank says wildly. "But you remember me coming back, and I'm still around, I mean, I was till now, so that means I'll go back soon and everything will be normal again. Right?"

Next year's con.txt theme is [Bob Ross and] The Joy of Fandom. How delightful! (Have some happy little trees! Because in art "there are no mistakes, just happy accidents.")

CON.TXT 2018: The Joy of Fandom

"Let’s face it, things in the real world are starting to look a bit dystopic out there, and we’ve begun to wonder if we’ve entered the darkest timeline. It’s a time when we all need Bob Ross to paint us some happy little trees, or some happy little clouds.

"When we REALLY need that fix-it story.

"The joy of fandom is our ability to remix, reshape, and rewrite our favorite media into something that pleases us. We change endings, we bring characters back to life, we reimagine Harry Potter as South Asian or Peggy Carter as Captain America, we put hobbits in coffee shops, boybanders in space, and Alexander Hamilton in a zombie apocalypse, we explore infinite timeline diversions, and most of all, we make our favorite characters get laid, fall in love, destroy their enemies, save the world, and buy some curtains. And always remember, there are no mistakes in Bob Ross paintings, just happy accidents.

"Fandom is not always perfect, and it’s not always the safe space we wish it were, but at least it’s not the real world. With that in mind, we invite you to come and take a break with us, hang out with other fans in person, and celebrate each other and the media we love!"

Thanks, Alex Orlando! How to adjust your bike's shifter cables is a four-minute video that taught me how to fix a cable AND the rear and front derailleur! And I only broke one other thing in the process (okay, two, but that reflector was totally non-essential and came off during the test ride afterwards, so I don't think that counts) which I'm pretty sure means I came out ahead.

Maybe I should google "how to replace a back tire" and fix the other bike while I'm at it. (Except I feel like I might have already tried that and it was much more complicated than I expected. On the other hand, derailleurs! I can't even spell that and I fixed it!)

Okay, they weren't lying about iOS 11. It really does make my iPad (and iPod, though the battery's declining fast) more useful: I can open on my tablet today every .htm file I was looking at on my laptop last night! What sorcery is this! I can read old fic that only exists on my backup drives from a remote device! This is a good day.

In related news, the original Keeper series was extensively different. So extensively that I think I'm just going to reread the entire old version as well (what a hardship!) because it wasn't crystals, it was the alien orb they were addicted to, and that was before the whole Maker adventure. Also it ends with Evan breaking Alex out of prison, which means none of the white planet happens, but I'm sure they figured out where the plague came from which in the new series is after all the keepers start being rounded up as enemies of state (it has to be before in the old series or we would have seen lots more of them being pirates).

Also, I'd completely forgotten about the random insect aliens only Alex can see ("by the way, who's Ed?") which means they're entirely absent from the new series. NOW I HAVE TWO VERSIONS OF THIS UNIVERSE TO READ. SWEET ♥

Thanks Kristine Williams! You are my hero!

PS, Pretty sure this explains why I remember them taking their shoes on and off so much. It only comes up a handful of times in the new series, but I really remember it being every single time they entered or left the room. I'll keep a count when I'm re-reading the old series. (I know at some point I wrote a journal entry that mentioned how much time they spent looking for their shoes. Or Alex did, anyway. Evan always knew where they were, because that's what he does.)

Primary Fanwork created by prophetic:

Title: Gunpowder and Lead
Format: fic
Bands: MCR, MSI
Pairings: Gerard/Frank; Gerard/Frank/Lindsey
Rating: teen and up
Warnings: violence; character death; suicide (minor character, off-screen); addiction/addictive behaviors.
Summary:
Frank and Gerard made it through their first cattle drive together, but now Frank is gone and Gerard doesn’t know what to do. His gut tells him Frank’s disappearance has something to do with the preacher man, but he has nothing else to go on.

Turns out, Lindsey is looking for the preacher man too, but she won’t say why. Gerard has reasons enough to hate the man, but Lindsey has more—reasons that stretch back into her family, her childhood, and what brought her out west in the first place. She wants what he owes her—she wants revenge.

American Western, set in the 1880s.

Title: Empty With You

Summary:
In a world where everyone has a soulmate, where do the outcasts fit in? Gerard and Frank are viewed as irreparably broken by the society they live in, shadows with no future, half-lives not worth living, and yet…somehow, there's something between them. Not a soul bond, but something else that feels real. Something they have no words for, something outside of what their society recognizes.

Something that just might be the death of them, or bring them back to life.
