Winter Wolves is having a sale ends July 28th. Also just found out that Always Remember Me has a sequel, Never Forget Me. I'm dying to play it.

LOL why are companies allowed to have sales when I don't have vast amounts of money to spend? How dare them!

► The other day, I was reminded that the song Tropes Are Forever exists, and now it’s stuck in my head, ha. ♥ (...And I just realized that the original post has a download link. brb, adding this to my iTunes.)

► I been toying around with the idea of replaying Star Stealing Prince again for a few months now, but kept putting it off because “I should really focus on cutting down my backlog”! But then I decided that it wouldn’t be a bad idea to refresh my memory for exchange-requesting purposes*, so I finally started that replay.

* Especially since I kind of want to request something from this game + one that I remember even less of for [community profile] femslashex (yes, I know I said I wasn’t going to do any more exchanges until Trick or Treat, shhhh). So of course I started off with the game that’s both shorter and that I remember better...

Right now, I’m at the very start of chapter two. more beneath the cut )

What OCD Is Like (for Me). John Green talks so well about mental illnesses. As someone who has OCD (and was diagnosed because of his talks made me realize what was happening to me) I'm grateful for this video as a way to explain to people how OCD feels for at least some of us, and ways to understand what it's like, and how some of the behaviors manifest.

The TED talk Getting Unstuck also shows what it's like to have OCD for greater understanding.

I beat Transistor over the weekend. That was… a really good game. Even before you get to the story, it’s just gorgeously designed: lovely graphics, an amazing soundtrack (example: the song that plays during the first boss battle *_*), and one of my favorite battle systems in a long time. cut for potential spoilers + length )

In a slightly strange place atm - mostly because I found two jobs to apply for, both with differing pros and cons, and both amazing opportunites.

I've finished the application for one - which is potentially long term, in a beautiful part of the country and an amazing opportunity - it's all submitted and closing date passed, so it's wait and see. I was interested, but doing the application and still dwelling on it now, has thrown me off *heh*

The other I have a week and a bit to go - not started yet, needing a rest after the last one! - it's a maternity cover, so would only be a short term, I don't have to move, but it'd give my CV a huge boast.

So yeah - tis weird. We will finally be getting a new boss at work (but all the lead in has made for an interesting atmosphere - they clearly wanted an external person, leaving all us internals all too aware that we have absolutely no progression opportunities, and as the single, childless work person, this queued me poking much more actively for new jobs. Which of course, me being single, need to be on the higher side paywise or I just can't afford to live (unless local, which leaves me with the same stuck in parents house situation :/)

The weather has been rather varied (with flash floods - I just made it home, but had to drive through white out torrential rain, work mate poked me to make sure I'd made it home and everything!)

therefore, heavy.

this was originally written and posted privately on the 20th of april last year. i'd forgotten about it, actually. there was a hashtag on twitter #wheniwas filled with personal experiences of childhood sexual harassment and assault. there was an article about it, too. and it brought up some stuff. well, doesn't everything?

I honestly did not "have a horse in this race," when it came to the new doctor. That's what happens when you stop watching a show you love for *checks imdb*....six years. Given the show's declining ratings, I didn't expect the BBC to take this kind of risk with Doctor Who. I've never been so happy to be wrong. Yay, it's a girl! Now I need to watch Doctor Who properly again, (in other words not just skipping to the episodes with River and Missy.) Ironically, I didn't quit the show because I hate Moff. I'm actually in the minority who prefers Moffat to RTD.

Now to see if Chibnell can pull it off as showrunner. A quick glance at IMDB tells me that he loves the Ponds, which is a plus, but none of his Doctor Who episodes have been particularly spectacular.

I hope that Bill comes back as the new doctor's companion. I'm worried thirteen will have to travel with a really annoying white guy, aka a repeat of Will and Helen on Sanctuary.

This is a spoiler for Star Trek: Discovery )

Given that binge watching is not one of my strengths, it might take awhile to get caught up on Doctor Who. Also not sure where to start.

Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: Just the Poll Creator, participants: 2

Should I....

go all the way back to RTD and the ninth doctor

start at the beginning of Moffat's era
0 (0.0%)

just go back to where I stopped, somewhere in season six

even now, with everything i know about memory—how easily it can be manipulated, how the act of recollection changes the memory itself—there is still a part of me that feels betrayed by my childhood self. and i wonder if the reason that i have no memories of my early years is because i had to erase them in order to participate in the lie of my parentage. i helped to deceive myself.

/consider: a word problem

if x = 3 (my mother married my stepfather) and y = 6 or 7 (my earliest memories), calculate the distance from one truth to another.
there were two trains. they were going at what speed?

/consider: the self as a city

i razed it and rebuilt.
no tracks and no disputed ground.

/consider: the present tense

how do i trust myself?
how do i forgive?

A select few pictures from mum and Brian's recent visit, these were taken on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the week they were here, the Anchor Trail pictures are already posted (locked) and for the Wednesday and Thursday we were out and about in Aberdeen with having dinner reservations at both Rendezvous at Nargile (highly recomend it!) and the casino as well as going to the cinema to see Despicable Me 3 which I enjoyed a lot more than both DM2 and Minions because I liked the villain, okay I liked Scarlet Overkill in Minions and want to see her in any potential future DM films but Vue really have to fix the heating because screen 2 was roasting and they didn't put the air con on at all.

Anyways, rambling on :) behind the cut is a select few pictures whittled down from 160 and barring a small amount of edits - cropping and where needed rotating, still orignal sizes because these were all taken on my tablet. A few of these have already appeared on my Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

(Posting this before I forget about it, again.)

I’ve… kind of been making icons for Stand Still Stay Silent lately? I can’t even remember the last time I made icons, but I used to be really obsessed with them, even to the extent of buying a paid account on LJ just so I could use more of them. It’s strange remembering that, considering that nowadays I only have one icon uploaded and never change it.

Anyways. At some point during my SSSS readthrough I was struck by how well a certain panel would look as an icon… and then I started saving pages… and then I started making them. I’m not actually done with all the pages I wanted to icon, not even close, but as I already have 50+ made (and am not actually certain that I won’t lose interest at some point and wander off), I figured I should share what I have now.

many images beneath the cut )
