    Ookay let's get some housekeeping out of the way.

    Dreamwidth's here, with my intro post here.

    Tumblr is here

    Ao3 is here

    Twitter exists but I'm not gonna link to it because Twitter is Literally The Pit From Which All The Satans Of The World Spawn From.

    Ace Attorney is absolutely a Comfort Object Fandom, but I'm currently pretty mad at the AA Team for making Athena and then doing nothing with her in Spirit of Justice, come the fuck onnnnnnnnnnnn. I really love the trio dynamic of Phoenix, Apollo and Athena, I love how they complement each other, I love how their flaws and strengths bring out unexpected sides of the others, Athena is literally the best and she is not even my favourite character, I just. I wanted more Athena, game.

    So that's why I'm on an emotional break from AA -- I didn't get Exactly What I Wanted out of Spirit of Justice and was a bit let down by the game in general. But yes, I do love me some Ace Attorney. I'm forever in the process of replaying them because every time I finish a full series playthrough I just start AA1 over like. Two days later, and the cycle resumes.

    Oh wow this forum goes way deeper than I figured, abort abort, at this rate I'm gonna get hit with absolutely ridiculous inferiority complex again which defeats the point of trying to be twelve again and have no fear.

    I have seven tabs open, all of them different 100+ page threads that I can't look away from because I feel like I have to find at least one screamingly stupid statement before I feel comfortable opening my mouth.

    Honestly, like, one of the things I liked during my short stint of extreme Reddit-usage was that because Reddit Being Reddit I was doing everything under a completely different name than I usually do, so I could just. Say the most batshit things and be confident that nobody would come into my inbox on my other social media to shame me on my bad takes. The weight off my shoulders, being able to be just another fucking idiot on the internet was extremely relieving.

    Unfortunately Reddit is terrible, so that didn't last. And it's also hard to have positive social experiences when you're hiding 99% of your actual personality.

    Like I kinda circled around, I started with Finnish-language forums and posting bad fanfic to FFnet, moved into English-language forums and 4chan, and LJ and Twitter, and eventually Tumblr, and now I'm essentially back where I started, posting bad fanfic but it's on DW/Ao3 and I don't know how to speak Finnish on the internet anymore.

    Lmao I spent the day at work zoning out on thinking about Thundercracker/Ratchet because my friend brought it up on a whim and I am starved for their Good Robot takes atm as they're travelling and their internet show-uppance is pretty spotty.

    I also have about all the material I need to write about frame contamination, but I'm wondering if I should put it off until I've written the post about how the self-repair nanite colony functions, because I'm gonna have to summarise it on the contamination post anyway, and maybe putting effort into keeping your headcanons consistent would be Good.

    Also I watched the Jenny Nicholson video on the Trevorrow Ep9 script and I still think TROS was better.

    But then again I still don't think TROS was even that bad.

    So I've spent this week watching Captain Joe's YT channel (link) which is all about, like, flight procedures, air traffic chatter, flight checks and airport behaviour from a pilot's perspective, and it's all pretty interesting. While I was writing the Vos thing, I went on a research tear about airports and air traffic management, and it's interesting how all of this is sort of. Building on all of that, but from the "end-user" perspective. Airports are much more about serving the needs of the planes going in and out of them and whatever passenger structures there are are sort of just retrofitted around those requirements.

    Also this shit helps with my fear of flight... somewhat. I researched plane safety like crazy before my NYC trip, I could cite the safety stats on the planes my flight used from memory probably. Knowing how low the odds are is usually comforting to me up until boarding.

    I hate flying so much, y'all.

    I'm not scared of flying myself, but I have absolutely gone "holy shit I'm going to die aren't I" during turbulence, so...still kind of a Mood for me?

    It prolly helps that I've been flying since actual literal infancy, though. :P

    Meanwhile, literally no matter how short the flight, I am literally always crying from stress right before and right after I feel wheels-off. I can't help it! The sensible brain is going "you know, most catastrophic engine failure happens at take-off, statistically you're safely in your destination already" while lizard brain is going "WELL, I HAD A NICE LIFE I GUESS"

    Funnily enough, landing isn't scary to me at all. It's just falling with style.

    I find it real damn funny thinking about various flight frames having to deal with human air traffic and being like uuuuuuugh having to wait in holding, and being like uuuuuuuuuugh having to wait for landing and being like UUUUUUUUUUUUUGH having to taxi around the airfield before they get to where they can transform and get some fucking service because humans are hopelessly landbound and our planes make getting up and going down into a whole fucking production, but there just aren't that many places other than airfields where they can get service otherwise, what are they, grounders?

    Also what's the other option??? Walking like three miles because humans don't want them diving into the flight patterns due to human response time Not Working Like That? A travesty.

    I'm short on fandom servers on Discord :( I mean, I probably wouldn't be terribly active on them, but I just miss the sense of community, right? That feeling that someone is always awake and Up For Some Shenanigans.

    TF fandom has my respect for actually having a respectable amount of good Roadbuster content once you do a little weeding.

    My friend got me into watching Suits and I have a lot of complicated feelings about Harvey, but even more than that I am having complicated feelings about Louis because on the one hand, every show needs a minor villain and at least he's not a boring toady, but he's also such a well-worn trope of a character that everything that could be interesting about how he plays off Harvey and Jessica is... obviously not what I'm meant to take away from him.

    Also his actor is cute and I'm mad at how he's done up. Give the man a nicer suit and a better haircut, c'mon.

    I just turned a lecture on computer security into an allegory about safe sex and I feel pretty boss about that

    I spent three whole posts on DW raging about how much I hate people substituting memes and references for real communication and described my ideal communication style as Completely Vulcan, and that made me realise that when one of my friends told me I'm a very funny person who never tells jokes they weren't even half wrong about that.
