    Me, after linkin "Kermis Plays Video Games" to all my friends: "But he's also a really talented composer, like... Firage has such good music, I listen to it at work all the time b/c it's so good for running up stairs to."
    My friends: "Cool! Can you play me some?"
    Me: "....."
    Me: *plays The Grim Reaper Blows The Horn*

    (I stand by my statement, but that song just slaps so goddamn hard it's the quickest way to demonstrate my point about how much musical talent Kermis has, memes or no.)

    Lazarae You won't be the death of me

    Oh damn that is good. Reminds me kind of the OFF soundtrack. Also that bit and the end killed me.

    Anyway I popped in to say I keep misreading your name as HonesTY instead of HonestLY and my brain keeps providing "Beep beep here comes the honesty van" every time I see you post

    but I got distracted by tunes

    Yeah that tracks. My personality is pretty much "stop spouting bullshit or I swear to fuck I will run you over with my own four wheels."

    Spent like three hours talking to my French Canadian friend about swear words and I've concluded that the true ESL experience is finding this language miserable to swear in and in a moment of tension not giving a shit and just saatana vittu perkele.

    My head is killing me and I don't know what I'm doing wrong weeeehhhh

    Do you want more food? More medicine? Do I have a tooth infection? Is this a sinus headache? Am I just stressed?

    Weeeh

    weh

    I mean, I've put off dentist by about a year so I guess this serves me right.

    But then again, I basically stopped eating candy and stopped drinking soda after my previous dentist so I still feel like this is unfair to me as a person.

    Also the absolute best part is that tooth infections don't heal on their own.

    TFW you're pretty sure a Youtuber you like has some bisexual leanings, but since he's very deep in the gamer sauce, you doubt he'll ever openly acknowledge it b/c *insert relevant Nanette quote here*

    Being Fandom Old is looking at the way someone is comporting themselves and thinking "one of these days you're gonna get in trouble and I mostly feel bad for your friends who will have gone to bat for you up until that point"

    Addition to the comment above -- apparently that person has already gotten in trouble, and now I'm tempted to reach out to their friends and be like "soooooooooo I kinda called this once upon a time? Do you wanna talk about it?"

    (but I'm not gonna)

    Completely unrelated, but I was randomly reminded about how good and handsome the Constructicons are in Transformers: Devastation, which got me thinking about how I should pitch G1 Bulkhead to one of my art friends. He'd make a very good addition to Hoist's and Grapple's dynamic -- a level-headed working-class engineer who is mostly there to do heavy lifting and maybe tries to cautiously reign in the more harebrained ideas the architect in the room is providing while being kind of awkward about suggesting any of his own in turn. Honestly, it's such a good fit I'm genuinely surprised I've never heard anyone bring it up before :/

    Also, he could be big. Like he could be. Biiiiig. I would even concede that he could be the kind of klutz people often act like TFP or TFA Bulkhead are, but since the only Autobots in the same weight class as him are Optimus and Skyfire, both remarkably graceful for their size, it's only appropriate that at least one of them be a bit unintentionally destructive. It would also make him mostly getting called in for really big building jobs flow even better -- there's plenty of rebuilding that needs to be done on the Ark as well, so he can mysteriously hang out where-ever out-of-focus Autobots tend to hang out.

    (And if the fandom is already doing it with Barricade, who's gonna stop me? ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ)

    I wish my brain had a method to inform me that I've slept long enough that didn't involve nightmares about being late and missing my plane/train to wake me up.

    I'm making bread with the leftover yeast.

    Leftover yeast from what, I hear you ask?

    Well, since it's Mead and Stupid Hats Day today I also made mead :) Good booze will come to those who wait

    I should probably work on some writing instead of just sitting here huh

    *gets distracted from writing Wrecker Things* Oh! Oh! Topspins weird-ass alt mode could definitely be a WIG, now when I think about it. I keep seeing him referred to as a heli, but I don't see a single rotor on him anywhere -- however, his G1 design has quite a lot of wing surface area, and it would fit with his original job being a cartographer.

    This realisation was brought to you by @Kemmasandi bringing up Cybertronian WIGs a while back. Cheers!

    Now back to writing.

    I had to look up his G1 design but ooh, it definitely looks like it could be one! (To my untrained eye at least XD)

    (Also I love your ideas on Bulkhead, that would be so neat to see that in fic 8DD And I'm here for Skyfire/Optimus being a bit clumsy too, it makes sense given how damn big they are.)

    "Kinks in the Wires" is out, and as soon as I figure out what thread information about a +18 Transformers robot kink zine should go in, I'm definitely going to start shouting from the rooftops about it, just to signal boost the work of my many friends who are involved in it.

    This fandom is horny in the most blessedly weird ways.

    RIGHT TIME TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO BEST CONTACT A WRITER YOU'VE NEVER SPOKEN TO TO LET THEM KNOW THEIR KINK FIC TORE OUT YOUR FUCKING HEART FROM YOUR CHEST BECAUSE YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU'D SEE ONE OF YOUR LEAST-LOVED SHIPS WRITTEN WITH SUCH CARE AND ATTENTION AND LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE COMPLEXITIES OF TRAUMA AND---

    *HOWLING CONTINUES*

    I did yoga today

    *shakes pompoms weakly*

    I'm still extremely tired and IDK if I should blame it on stress, not eating enough, the tooth infection, or not having slept enough. I really wanna get some writing done, either by doing a type-up of the Considerations Of Topspin's Alt Form on DW or cleaning up chap5 of ITB. Maybe work on one of the sexy stories and not start a new one because I have restraint.

    I also kinda wanna wire my PS2's up and check which one of them is the one that can read game disks and which one is the one that can only read DVDs, and then start KH2 over because I'm still mad that the entire fucking third act of KH3 was sold separate.
