Yesterday I buried my cat.
When asked how deep I dug,
I held my hand just below my heart,
and even that, I dug carefully.
If I had let myself fall in,
I would never have climbed out again.

Day 3: Your Favourite Human - Lotus Blossom

He learns stealth from a thief.

Not that he was a slouch before. Leonardo mastered the techniques of concealing himself, of misdirection, hiding behind the obvious door or locker or cabinet until his enemies look, and then—-he’s gone, watching them from the vent in the wall, masked within a dark supply closet. The places that his enemies call their own are riddled with equipment, machinery, fake offices. They provide him with plenty of cover, and he uses them as smoothly as if they were planned out for him in advance.

But she—-nameless thief that he spots one night—-she hasn’t mastered stealth. She breathes it, hidden in plain sight, not concealing herself but simply standing where no one looks.

2: Least Fave Turtle

He doesn’t expect the others to understand him. They don’t think like he does. Leonardo thinks with his body. So does Raphael. They both move easily together, all sharp turns and powerful thrusts. Donatello practices enough to keep up, does his time in the dojo, but they all know where his true talents lie. Once katas and sparring are done, after new lessons have been absorbed, he heads alone to his lab and absorbs himself in his engineering.

1. Fave Turtle

He practices more than his brothers, more than Splinter demands. One more kata, one more drill, one more practice flip of the sword—-his fingers grow numb and his knuckles bleed. They all nick themselves from time to time. They’ve all learned to ignore little injuries, except Michelangelo, who tries to use them to get out of practice.

subject: can't gripe without it turning into a damn essay

Dear TMNT BNFs, specifically the old fen and their fanpoodles who are ironically now mostly out of the fandom,

Remember Twisted Autumn, that fanfic you dogpiled on me for not listening to you oh so wise ladies when you said Raphael was an asshole and how dare I not treat your constructive criticism as points to make changes in my own damn narrative? Because obviously I am a bitch and an obsessive diva who should change to fit other people’s ideas and opinions.

It’s been translated. Into Italian. At least one fan liked it enough to put in that kind of work, and other fans enjoyed her translation.

I’ve thought about this a long time.Collapse )

It feels a little weird to do this because I don't really feel bad per se. I'm not deleting my LJ, but I am cancelling anymore payments. I will likely update on rare occasions when I finish chapters here or there, but I barely see anyone from the past still posting here. Not too surprising, considering the "new" management of the past few years.

So if anyone wants to grab any of my old icons, images, pics, etc., best to check my scrapbook before Nov. 2014. Everything will vanish that month.

subject: I swear, she sounds like a Christian Dolores Umbridge

“Some of the new White Trash religions people concoct are parody-worthy but at the same time not a laughing matter. Goddess worship is all the rage, and its devotees fondly believe they are following something quite ancient. But they are deluded. For one thing, they got their goddess all wrong. The girls on the popular ’90s TV show Friends called on the goddess for help getting dates. Feminist goddess worshippers go howl at the moon, or some such foolishness, to invoke her.”

-White Trash Religion in a Nutshell: Proud, Ignorant, And Messy

My god did this one just piss me the fuck off. I left the long comment at the end of it, but damn if this ain’t the biggest reason I stopped being Republican and went full on Libertarian.

Summary: (sequel to Clogged Drain) After the haunting of their home, the four head out to the farm to rest and recouperate, but there are no city lights here, and the forest is deep and dark. Ghosts are not all that may lurk in the darkness, watching them through the thin glass.

Disclaimer: I do not own the turtles nor do I make any money off of this.

Rating: R for violence, creepy

Other Info: Inspired by tons of creepypasta.

subject: Revision and re-writing

Writing is a process, although everyone has their own individual style of revision, and certainly not always the one pushed by teachers or professors. Often high school teaches the formal, academic style of the writing process: outline, detailed outline, rough draft, revised draft, final copy.

I was the type of student who did her rough draft first, then made a quick outline, then did a quick edit and turned in a typed, barely revised copy. I got A's because I have a strong sense for the patterns, rhythms and styles in English literature. These grades also did me a disservice.

For years, I had no clue what real revision meant.Collapse )

I saw a statistic on Cracked that 70% of American workers don’t like their jobs, and 20% actively hate their jobs. I am one of the lucky 10%. I’m also an outlier about making a decent income with a liberal arts degree, but then I also went into English knowing there was a teacher shortage at the time. And the masters secured my position.

Anyway, long and hard day of teaching. Collapse )

My ASUS died and I'm on my new Vaio. I didn't even beat my ASUS and it died after only 2 years. Rather annoyed. Also Windows 8 sucks sour monkey balls. I'm having a hard time getting used to this laptop and configuring it the way I like, getting stuff installed (ZenWriter was an absolute must) and I'm waiting to get my backup files.

Also, a buddy may or may not have gotten me into Transformers, specifically Soundwave/Jazz, and I'm producing a little on that front now in addition to the good four or so pages I've currently got on OBII.

subject: Sometimes it's a goddamn good thing I have no super powers...

There would be a lot of fucking dead people. And it would slow and painful and if there weren’t superheroes before I did this, there sure as hell would be afterward.

I just want a simple goddamn recipe. Two ingredients. That’s it. Simple. Basic. Fucking basic. I don’t need 20 damn ways to jazz it up, I don’t want 14 super simple recipes to make “yummiest” shit with added crap. I don’t want fucking new ways to reinvent the goddamn easy recipe that it seems everyone else knows and isn’t telling me.

Don’t ever EVER fucking tell me you run a recipe site that includes basics, because it’s bullshit and I will hurt you. I don’t care at this point if you run the only one in existence because I don’t think it exists anymore. I think it’s mythological. The “basic” recipe takes seven steps, fourteen ingredients and twenty minutes of prep time. The “simple” recipe has five ingredients that shouldn’t be there but it’s “low” or a “cheat”. I don’t want to cheat and I don’t want the motherfucking “low” amount, I want the fucking “no” amount.

Cooking sites, for whatever fucking reason, are the one and only time that the internet fails me. Google fails. Because all the marketing people decided to make cooking and recipes their home base, and there isn’t a legitimate, straightforward site on the whole goddamn web that I can find.

Slowly. With a set of a kitchen knives. And there may or may not be a delicious batch of meat pies afterward—that will depend solely on how many different internet searches I’ve tried that day.

So I see that there's a TMNT anthology in the works, set for Aug.1, and it's aimed at romance and erotica, and I'm thinking "hmm, I haven't done that in awhile. And I was thinking of a Mikey/Leo scenario earlier today, and it'd be fun to give it a whirl 'cause I totally don't have enough fics on my plate as it is..."

And then I see this: We do have a few no-no's though: No original/fan characters, blank slate canons, child or chibi characters. And of course no turtlecest (implied or otherwise).

Huh.

Pfft, hell no, not doing that again.

Literally defriended me over me saying that Damon Salvatore was a predator and anyone who dated him should be prepared to be abused because--srsly--vampires hunt and kill people.

If You're Dating a Vampire, You're Doing It Wrong

What have we learned, children? That dating a vampire, even incredibly hot and wooby ones like Damon, is incredibly stupid and really just an indulgent fantasy. He's not even human--people look at him and think, oh, he looks human so he must retain some human elements. No, nothing! Barely even the shell of a human. He's an intelligent animal. That's why he's awesome. That's also why he's not date material.

subject: Teacher resignation on video



I'll be candid--I believe in standardized testing as a means of evaluating schools, but I violated my own libertarian thought in thinking that the government could apply it without royally fucking it up and turning it into a greater debacle than any underachieving school could be. It was a betrayal of my own ideals and for that I'll always be sorry.

Standardized testing will never work because it becomes a tool for petty tyrants and power-mongers in administrative and district positions, politicians who sow fear and anxiety, and powerful publishing lobbies that put out not only the books but the tests and the remedial tests and the programs to study the tests and the practice tests and the teacher inservices for the tests.

Standardized testing is a leech on the side of education and a weapon in the hands of those who don't care about the student, only the score, and the two are not the same. Testing could have been done well. Instead it feels like the second coming of the Industrial Revolution--force every child into the same mold, rubber stamp them and process them like machines.
