In this blog post I talk about over-manipulation, a thing that can make you hate your writing. As well as what can bring relief.
This has been one of the single greatest problems facing me as a writer.
When you wanna rock out but Mom makes you learn a traditional instrument:
Gundam Wing, ep 7 rewatch
Damn this was a big episode! I don't remember OZ taking over this early, and I didn't remember how they did it. Honestly, well played, Treize, you asshole.
I like seeing that Zechs is already having second thoughts, and it was SO GOOD to get all the Gundam pilots in one place finally ❤️
They really manage to cram a lot into these 20-minute episodes, don't they?
When I’m President Of Video Games, all games will have an “adults with busy lives” feature.
“Hi, I see you haven’t played this game in a month. Here’s a reminder of the last things you did and where you need to go next. Press X for a quick tutorial of the controls you forgot.”

Yes, you heard this right - Ireland is yet another country to have formed a legal industrial union for games workers! Comhghairdeas!🎉🎊
Unions springing up like mushrooms these days, who's next?💪💪🏿💪🏽
Gundam Wing, ep 6 rewatch
I can’t believe reporters are asking the 15-year old who just lost her father if his death means they’re going to war! Also, omg Relena, apologizing for not being able to save him? You’re FIFTEEN for god’s sake.
Man Okiayu Ryotaro’s voice is just 😘👌 as Treize, yes keep talking please you magnificent asshole
There are a whole lot of kids with death wishes in this show 😕
Just ran into a chunk of "How did this ever work?" code. I unfortunately have to leave it in place, because there are like 300 instances of it being used in the current way across the code base and I'm not opening that can of worms. But I still need the RIGHT functionality, so... time to hack around it, I guess.
Gundam Wing, ep 5 rewatch
I have a tangle of Relena thoughts this episode that I’m struggling to put into words. A lot of it is dealing with the person I was the first time I watched this, who had a lot more unexamined internalized misogyny than I do now, who thought Relena was a ridiculous joke. Now I find her frustrating but understandable in that she’s a kid and she has a lot of trauma and yeah, she’s making one bad decision after another but it’s not really surprising.
Gundam Wing, ep 5 rewatch
I wish we had more of a chance to see why Relena’s friends think she’s so wonderful. As it stands, she mostly seems fake when she’s talking to them, but they aren’t talking bad about her behind her back or anything, they seem to genuinely think she’s awesome.
FUN FACT: in Japanese the colonist dude calls Lady Une “Miss Lady” instead of “Miss Une”.
Gundam Wing, ep 4 rewatch
Noin, NO! You don’t need to come in second so he will look better!!!
Oh man, Wufei... I remembered he was misogynistic but I forgot it was this overt. Honestly I’m screaming right along with Noin there, that’s so frustrating lol
The bath thing with Treize, holy shit that’s way more suggestive than I remember. And Lady Une looks... jealous? When he mentions Zechs? I’m not gonna get out of this rewatch without shipping 6x13 again, am I.
