Wednesday, Continuing Shenanigans

I have individuated thirty chapters for Mum's ease of access and... she can't access them for some reason -_- fml...

I asked her what she meant by "it won't Expand" but there was no indication about that from her. Fun stuff. I might find out at a later hour. I might have to go there and find out in person.

Not tomorrow, since I am helping Beloved with funerary arrangements and doing the whole prop-up and support thing. I shall be tasked with selecting pictures for the service as well.

Maybe the day after.

Today, I am doing my Wordpress thing, possibly about the Content Creator's Union. I am also individuating fifteen chapters, summarising five chapters, and set-dressing at least two chambers of dungeon for my players to dragon in.

THEN I get to chill about things.

There was no date night, last week, and I understand entirely why. Beloved has more than enough on her plate. I don't know if there will be a date tonight.

There's lots of other stuff to worry about.

My 50th birthday is upcoming and I am pondering doing an All Hallows Read to celebrate. I'll throw it at my writing group first. See if they like it.

And then I have to figure out how to mash together a cover out of my extant art programs. Huzzah. It's been a long, long time between stories.

I can feel my mojo coming back. So that's something.

A little something. A tiny victory. Allow me to play the world's smallest trumpet when timing allows.

For now, there is a story to share. Let's have that.

Challenge #03558-I269: Your Body, Your Choice

The planet, a Havenworld, was quite warm, and beautiful. The humans that found it, and created a colony, had only one rule that seemed very abnormal. Except for underwear, and safety equipment when needed, the wearing of clothing was very much optional. Needless to say, this tended to shock Galactics any time they visited. -- Anon Guest

[AN: I'm sure I did a prompt like this sometime in the past, but I'm blowed if I know where it is.]

Welcome to Pakao,

Tuesday, Patreon and Plotting

I am going to be set dressing in TaleSpire today. All the closer to swapping over to DungeonDraft and thereby speeding up the dungeon-making process. And also making a new process, huzzah.

I shall also be putting my continuing novel, A Devil's Tale, into a special folder so my mum can read it. Her compy doesn't like the huge master file, so she's getting a bespoke folder with each chapter in a separate document.

It's going to take me ages. I might

Challenge #03557-I268: An Overdue Appreciation

Death is used to the living fearing them when they come to take the living to the next world. But this living being, as they lay waiting for Death's hand to take their pain away, holds out a simple silk flower, enchanted so Death may hold it close. This being's way of saying thank you. For in the end, Death is usually the kindest being of all. -- Anon Guest

Long Monday, but not really

It's school holidays, so I don't need to fret about anything. I can turn varied alarms off and just snooze.

After I'm done with the stream, of course.

Beloved has work-related nonsense early in the day. Blargh. Given how much running around she's doing for everyone else, I'm starting to feel a little neglected. And I'm worried that talking about that is going to make me selfish.

Sigh.

Even finding the time to talk to her is a problem. Given the running

Challenge #03556-I267: Directed Assistance

A human, once a wealthy aristocrat, is begging in the streets now. They'd made mistakes, big mistakes, and now begged the Elven wizard and hir friends for help. They were truly sorry for what they did. What help did they want? Money? Power? No. Even though they were broke, they were trying to save those they, themselves, had impoverished, before it was too late. -- Anon Guest

Some in rags, and some in tags, and one in a velvet gown... The robe

Sunday, Game Night and Shenanigans

Tale Foundry is about to commence the weekly reads. I am prepping for the stream and the entry for this week's competition.

I voted for this one, but I only had a vague idea of what to do with it so... hoist by my own petard, I guess.

I also forgot what day it was, yesterday, so I owe my audience another read to make up for it.

I think I'm getting over the mild lurgi I picked up at Woolies, so

Challenge #03555-I266: To Walk the Flame

Havenworlders and other Deathworlders, at least those not from really hot planets, are aghast as they watch humans in firewalking ceremonies. How in the name of the POWERS are humans walking on fire and hot coals barefoot? -- Fighting Fit

Welcome to Terra. Come for the spectacles, stay for the food. The Humans will do anything to show off for an audience. Including things that really should hurt them worse than they do.

These humans were walking barefoot across fire. Well. Technically,

Saturday, Rhinovirus Embuggerance

So my blood test results were inconclusive. Just below normal, and the Doc wants another go as close as possible to blood lab opening hours.

Problem 1 - I have a rhinovirus
Problem 2 - I have to book the appointment or wait for everyone doing a fasting test before I get jabbed
Problem 3 - I may have to cancel a stream to do it.

Fun times.

So I must wait for the mild sneezies to bugger off before I book,

Challenge #03554-I265: Battling Ignorance

On a twist of fate, Amatu has to defend Wraithvine from racist jerks who hate Elves. Calls Wraithvine his sibling, and ends up in a fistfight, why waste magic on nonmagical bullies? -- Anon Guest

[AN: Check the tag "amatus-adventure" for further shenanigans]

There was a very crude sign outside of the village. It said, NOW NYFEERS. There was a semi-helpful frowny face with pointed ears on the placard, with a red X painted over it.

"If we go through quickly?" suggested

Friday, Unfuckening and Shenanigans

I need to clean the catio today, and also see the local medico visavis my blood test. I also may have picked up a rhinovirus at Woolies.

Some dingus didn't cover their firkin mouth at the ONE place I forgot to wear my dang mask. FUCK.

I'm going to be exiled to the plague seats out in the open air. All the better to prevent the spread of disease.

[grumblemutterstoopidrhinoviriigrowlsnarl]

Beloved and I have begun to work together on the budget, which

Challenge #03553-I264: Therapy Augments

They had been through something so immensely horrific they stopped talking altogether. Except, they would speak to animals. They barely looked up, often freezing and curling up into a ball of terror at even the slightest noise over a soft spoken voice. The therapist was broken-hearted, this was going to take a lot of work. -- Anon Guest

Humans were not meant to shut down like this. In and of itself, the spectacle was terrifying. Human Teal was nonresponsive to all but

Thursday, Game Night and Other Things???

My compy almost died last night because of some weird-arse crap. Something needed scraping out of the circuitry and I was lost for what the problem was.

A problem that did not get fixed until pretty fucking close to midnight. Thank the Powers that I napped between the time of the problem (9PM) and the time of the fixing.

Otherwise, I would be useless for everyone and everything.

I need to talk to my Beloved about how to guarantee contact with her.

Challenge #03552-I263: Wait, What?

Scientists are baffled and confused! The sky ships have been hanging over our planet for weeks now?! Where did they come from and what do they want?! (link) (link) -- AmberFox

[AN: Both links lead to advertisements for Freeview, yet another streaming service full of yet more content. The ads are clever though]

They looked absolutely ridiculous. For starters, most of their structure was wood and brass. Wings of canvas and rope splayed out like fins from an otherworldly fish. There was

Wednesday, Wordpress & Organisation

My love spent the day and the night and the morning at work. She didn't turn up at home until like 2AM :P At some point, we need to get supplies and do a budget. Balancing things we need to pay for versus things we want to pay for et cetera.

One bit at a time, we shall manage stuff. Wrangle our income, wrestle our expenditures and get things sorted out.

I don't even know IF we're having a date night this
