Let's be honest here, 'fix-it' just means 'break it differently'.

Stuck in never-finished longfic hell. As usual.

Reminder of the day:


Starting Needham's volume on alchemy and it's hard just to get through the author's note because he sounds so much like my dad.

(Also, wow, I thought I meandered all over the place, but I'm downright *focused* next to this explanation of who contributed, and how, and how and where he met them... 😂)

I love that moment when you realize that you wrote something that seemed random but cool ages ago which now ties in and makes the mess your brain is currently spewing out onto the page make *sense*.

My subconscious is apparently much better at foreshadowing than my forebrain, so I'm just going to roll with it. 😂

what level of fanfic is it when you write lore for a non-canonical show on a non-canonical channel owned by your version of a canonical character

All that mess just to install Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic... 😂

(Ooo, I also need to put DOSbox on.)

Aha, I just had to go to the hidden folder .steam and run the installer shell script there from the terminal, and then it finished doing the install (and deleted the shell script). Now the client will run.

This seems like the sort of thing you'd add into your install process instead of requiring users to do separately, without instruction, but what do I know.

Ahhhh, so I was trying to use Debian terminology on an Ubuntu install, that was my problem.

(Also why using 'sudo apt-add-repository' from the command line is superior to editing sources.list -- it will TELL you when you fuck up, instead of just letting you save the mess and regret it later.)

Anyway, I have learned something new, and also the directions I was trying to follow still don't make Steam work, so. 🤷

This is like the time my wifi didn't work for six months because of an update.

Born of a Jamaican mother and American father, 'Pixie' Colman Smith was an illustrator, writer, occultist, traditional storyteller and magician who illustrated/co-designed the Rider-Waite tarot, 1st edition (1909) #womensart

Let's be honest here, 'fix-it' just means 'break it differently'.


God, can the Batman movies just be written by AO3 writer Unpretty? Because that's all I really want.


Guardian/SCI crossover serial killer AU! And can I just say, WOW!

The joy of having younger fandom friends in Harry Potter: introducing them to the wtf-ery of the Marriage Law Challenge.

And I quote: "What. WHAT."


Solution: Reinstall Xubuntu (since apt-get didn't like my sources.list backup either), be grateful I partitioned /home separately, hope Debian fixes whatever it busted eventually and try again in six months.


So I'm trying to install Steam on my new Xubuntu install and sudo apt-get update keeps telling me I don't have contrib non-free enabled in sources.list, have I checked my spelling? (Yes. Yes, I have. Repeatedly.) Meanwhile, the Gnome gui tool doesn't actually allow you to set the contrib and non-free flags, but it sure can screw up sources.list if you click anything.

And now I am trying to remember why I wanted to go back to Linux...

I was wrong, Scum Villain isn't completely translated yet; chapter 77 came out on 5/15.

(Ask me how I know... 😭)

you do not in fact swallow any spiders in your sleep ever, in fact, the whole myth started in the first place just to prove how gullible the internet is

Really great background info about that "two wolves" story here:
Please boost as you would a good meme.

Oh, in other news, there's a group on facebook on a crusade to shut down a bunch of comms and lots of hubby's comms are going on lockdown. One considering finding another platform.

I'm just sitting over here going "psst, " every now and again.
