Pinned toot

Current original WIPs:
The Double Sword (TDS, in revision): Four queer boys who meet at university go on a quest for a magic sword, pursued by their autistic ringleader's homicidal brother.
The Prince's Knife (TPK [working title], first draft in progress): When Valentile, second-in-line heir to the throne, is disowned and exiled because of his rebellious, self-destructive habits, his aloof bodyguard must accompany him in the search for a new home. (And they fall in love, obviously.)

lego island was the first open world game

ok I'm definitely good now, wearing real clothes & feel like a human! that was a not great six hours but it's still only 2:30 so could be worse. time to acquire foods

when I find a GP I really need to ask if I should get the migraines checked out, they're almost certainly idiopathic and nbd, but can't hurt to check

I think I'm feeling a little bit better. If getting up doesn't ruin it I can go get groceries, which was my only real goal for today anyway.

Recent notable fanwork:
Sharing Silences (complete): ~30k Stucky college AU ft. autistic, nonverbal Bucky and Deaf Steve. Steve doesn't like Bucky, his group project partner for geology, very much, and it seems like the feeling is mutual... until they discover they both use ASL. A close friendship develops--will it become something more? (spoiler alert: IT DO.)

I know exactly what this stems from--one particular asshole, who everyone agrees is an asshole and doesn't listen to at all, made a mean comment about one of my friends who also has back acne behind his back, and I've just carried that with me for like three years. and like. who cares. everyone knows she's just mean and nobody was like "oh you're right I've never noticed that before and now I will stop being friends with him because of his benign and common skin condition"

I realized today that the extreme embarrassment I have about my acne is really more of a social anxiety thing than a body image thing. I worry that it looks unattractive, but my *specific* fear is that someone will see it and be disgusted and humiliate me in public.

This means it's something I can exposure-therapy myself for in the summer when it's shirtlessness weather! (oddly my face acne doesn't bother me that much, it's my back/shoulders that I have issues with)

I should pin a toot with my novel titles & synopses later

me looking cute at the ballet, selfie no eye contact

I told my friend I'd let him read The Double Sword when it's done and I WILL follow through on that, but my *next* novel will probably blow his mind bc it takes some techniques and flavors from fanfic and he doesn't read fic so it'll be all new to him

took a painkiller so hopefully I'll feel better in a little while! it's kinda frustrating to get struck down by bodily rebellion whenever I do An Activity at night. on the other hand this is very much *not* a full-blown migraine and I'm *very* thankful for that

The ballet was AMAZING. My friend and I saw the National Ballet of China's Raise the Red Lantern. It was so exciting and dramatic. So much creative destruction of the set! We didn't read the plot summary beforehand and were surprised that when we opened it up at intermission, we had both understood pretty much everything (modulo some nuances over who were concubines and who was the master of the house's actual wife) without any guidance.
