I wonder if I’ll make this self-imposed deadline for finishing this story.
The big reason I wanted to finish writing it by 8/15? My friend who had been a big inspiration for writing this story, died on 8/15/96. Back when we were young and full of hopes and dreams.
He would be in his forties now, like me. I keep thinking how we should be hanging out, reading Watership Down to each other (our favorite book ever). Maybe our kids would be playing with each other.
And all I have left of him is the little shoebox full of memories, and some dusty old photo albums. But that shoebox and everything in it is a treasure. Notes passed to each other in study hall. Ticket stubs. Bootleg CDs he made for me. Pink Floyd mix tapes. Audio tapes of us performing all of Rocky Horror Picture Show (he was Frank N Furter, I was Magenta).
I miss my friend. It still hurts so bad, all these years later. That he’s gone. That I couldn’t save him.
Please, if you ever think about hurting yourself - call someone. There is always someone who wants to help. There is always another tomorrow that might not suck.
I am working on a bunch of ficcy things, seeing as management is at a conference this week and it’s quiet at work. Ah, sweet silence!
Chapter updates coming soon on Pictures of You. I have set a goal to finish the story by 8/15. Eek…..that’s coming up fast.
//Since evidently I am a horrible person and horrible partner I think this blog is going to go on indefinite hiatus. Not like it really matters.
I’m sorry to hear that. :( I know I don’t RP anymore but I enjoy seeing what’s going on with people I once interacted with.
And if someone told you you’re a horrible person, that’s bullshit. Honestly, drama is the #1 reason I got out of RP. It’s supposed to be fun but some people have to ruin it which sucks. :/
It’s not normal to be congested like this for two solid months. My doctor keeps saying it’s a sinus infection. I’ve been on antibiotics twice, and they have not helped. I made an appointment with a specialist, but they can’t see me until August 11. Two more weeks of not breathing, of constantly choking, and not sleeping more than a couple of hours at a time.
Really fucking tired of this.
There are only two places to find the Tough/Toph Ring in FFVII: Sephiroth is wearing one in Nibelheim, and you can eventually steal one from Reno. So really, there’s only one you can actually equip.
Just wash it first. Reno has equipped it many times.
Reno and his ingenious way of increasing his stats.
#but everything changed when the fire nation got fabulous
This is now offically sixteen million times better than when I first saw it. Time to reblog.
I thought Tumblr was getting quiet lately, but dA is a damned graveyard these days.
Kind of bummed that many of my favorite fic authors and friends have left the fic-world in favor of roleplaying. Oh well…I’m still writing. Until I run out of ideas, anyway.
