With the COVID-19 pandemic going on I am seeing a lot on social media with the “I wish it need not have happened in my time”/” All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us” quote from Fellowship of the Ring, and indeed it is comforting in troubling times …
But in this case, stay the fuck home and do not under any circumstances get 8 companions together for a road trip and split up to hit numerous major population centers on your way to Mordor.
Having Celiac disease is liking having my very only personal Department of Homeland Security, dramatically over representing and misattributing threats and creating widespread misery “defending” me from them.
One of my superpowers is always being able to produce enough urine for a urine sample no matter how recently I have peed
When YouTube algorithms recommend you one hour of ambient “Sith music for meditation and study” and “LOTR but it’s only Gimli making noises” and they’re not wrong.
Fanfiction is becoming people’s primary form of entertainment right now because most media right now is so cheap, bland, recycled, and sponsored by people who love money more than the source material. Fanfiction is written for free by people who genuinely love what they’re writing about. That’s why it’s better. That’s why it’s more satisfying. Fanfiction is a home-cooked meal made for yourself and for your friends. Media today is junky fast food spoiled by too much grease and the knowledge that the people producing it are being criminally mistreated and underpaid.
FANFICTION IS A HOME-COOKED MEAL
There’s this cool thing I’ve noticed with doctors where I can walk in, sit down, and say “I have X thing and I need help” and they go :)) Oh sweetie u know ur not a doctor right? :)))
or I can say “I have a family history of X, I have 95% of X’s symptoms, people with X have advised me that I might also have X, and I would like to be tested to see if X is my problem” and they go :))) o honie babie child :)))) web MD is not reliable :)))) u only THINK u have X but its okay ur not a bad person :)))) its ok u don’t need to fake an illness for attention :::))))
BUT if I go in and say… I do not know what is wrong plz help they’ll be like “ah yes by the stain on the left knee of ur jeans and ur messy eyebrows I can tell u have X,, have u ever heard of it” and I absolutely hate it, I hate knowing exactly what’s happening and having to pretend I don’t just to be taken seriously, I propose it be titled The Sherlock Effect
This is totally a thing. Every doctor visit I made trying to diagnose my vaginismus was a game of 20 questions waiting to see if THEY’D bring it up by name because the minute I invoked the word myself I was told it wasn’t actually a thing and I should just try wine and lube.
The densest people on the internet are the ones who say sci fi and fantasy are getting too political. Why can’t we go back to the good old days of The Twilight Zone, with its various episodes about mob mentality and the danger of mass paranoia that totally weren’t about the Red Scare. Or Star Wars and its genocidal empire of racially homogeneous Aryan men. Or Dune with its religious tribal peoples who live in a desert that contains the galaxy’s most valuable resource and the wars with the foreign colonizers, that was purely from Frank Herbert’s imagination. Can you imagine how much Star Trek would suck if it was packed to the brim with ham-fisted allegories of every societal issue of the 20th century. Not like all this modern ultra-political stuff, like a woman hero.
The “Show Yourself” scene in Frozen 2 is just a more uplifting version of Rey looking for her parents and finding herself in the cave.
