Very random post, but.

A few weeks ago we watched the pilot for the new The Tick TV series.

As there were sadly no more episodes, we then watched The Seventh Seal.

Somehow I felt this summed us up rather well.

And today I remembered to buy more Earl Grey (we had run out!!) but forgot toilet paper.

So if you wonder what we are like - well, this post is it. Very eclectic viewing tastes and an addiction to (good) tea. :)

Forgot to mention that I have this whole fic written & finished, which is nice. :)

On AO3 this is tagged with 'Aggressive Sarcasm' and 'Mutual Antagonism'. In other words: I had a lot of fun writing this.

Summary: How do you save people that don't want to be saved?

For info etc, please check out The Prologue.

Chance Encounters (AO3 link) by [profile] luckweaver.

Summary: The first step in the plan was to lie low for a little, and stay out of sight. Of course, trouble had a way of finding Roda...

Notes: This is a series of short stories, probably 3 chapters for each, with minor details about what Roda gets up to immediately following the events of 'The Death and Life of Rodageitmososa'. These take place during Roda's 8th regeneration.

6 chapters posted. Some great guest stars. Go. Enjoy. :)

The interview starts at about 1 minute in, and runs about 30 minutes.

This was recorded on Day 4 of ConVergence, earlier this month. (Which seems longer ago than that, already.)

I got my hair color touched up and my ends trimmed after work today. I should not find the student hairdressers as cute as a basket of kittens, but they are -- mainly because of how enthusiastic they get.

For example, the woman who was working on my hair kept exclaiming about how much I have -- it's both long and dense -- and how far it extends down my nape, which she noticed because I maintain a severe undercut. She also called my hairline 'crazy', but in an affectionate way; it definitely make it a challenge to overdye my temples, which are almost completely silver now if I don't dye my hair. Also, she's probably the first student there who didn't blink when I said I wanted my undercut at zero. It'll be back by Friday, and shaving it to the skin only makes sense in our near-100F weather. It was nice to meet someone who trusted that I knew my own hair.

I do wish I had a job where I had no chance of encountering clients -- I really want to dye my hair burgundy again. It was an awesome color on me.

Interviewer: How do you think your characters would react to the first meeting Jodie's version of the Doctor?

Michelle: Well, I think Missy would crush her to death.

Pearl: I think Bill might have a crush on her.

From here.

Today has been the worst anxiety/ocd-behaviors day I have had in fuck knows how long, it's been a while, it's really bad today, I am massively not okay, and this after yesterday of also not being okay. But! I made it to work. I didn't get much done at work, but I made it to work and sometimes that's all the triumph you can get out of a day. (plus friday's unexpectedly-all-day-meeting was enough of a nightmare that it totally counts for extra points)

I really kinda need this country to stop being in a constitutional crisis, it's not helping my brainproblems.

During work I keep coming up with things I want to post about, and then when I'm home I'm too lazy and/or tired, similarly often on weekends. No vacation for me until September, most likely, but I told myself to pay attention and take a mental health day if I need it. I haven't been sick yet so I wouldn't feel bad about it.

D&D )

I recently found a book again that I'd searched for for years: "Bloodrights" by N. Lee Wood. I was prepared to be disappointed, but to my happy surprise I still like it a lot. It's harsher than I remembered, especially in regards to the cost of striving for power. The surprising reveal at the end made me look at much of it in a different way and made me like it even more. Yay trope subversion. Spoiler )
I liked Antonya and many of the other characters, and rereading the book now there are several scenes that I now much better understand the id buttons they pushed (esp. Kerrick & Morgan.) Also, something I'd forgotten about which was a nice surprise, queer people exist and are, while not completely normal, not a big deal.

Politics, because it's unavoidable: The current situation in Poland is scary, it shows how easily things like that can happen. That the protests appear to have had some success is encouraging but not more than a silver lining.
There are so many countries were democracy is under attack…
In Austria I'm trying to focus on the push-back against the surveillance program, but I'm scared about the new government after the next election. The outcome seems almost certain and it would be a bad one imo, but as we've recently seen in the UK a lot can change during an election campaign, so we'll see.

It’s been another banner week here at Summer of Giles! On the visual arts front, we have a lovely portrait of Giles and video highlighting Giles and Dawn’s relationship. In fic, we’ve been taken along Giles’ extremely dark and self destructive path during his time running around London, and we’ve also experienced a mundane day in the life of a Watcher posted on the Hellmouth. We also had an update to the post-Chosen “Ripper” story, experienced hijinx when Giles and Willow’s iPhones decided to get married, and were treated to the conclusion of Part IV of the Sanctuary Series titled Labyrinth.

Please remember to leave love and comments for our content creators. Feedback has been very sparse this year and everyone has worked so hard to make Summer of Giles a fun and wonderful experience this summer. So please, read, view, and show your appreciation.

And lastly, authors and artists, please remember to tag your entries.
