  • Director Krennic: Lord Vader, have you ever considered toning it down just a bit?
  • Darth Vader, casting a 20 foot tall shadow while surrounded by golden glowing fog as he slowly descends the catwalk: I have no idea what you're talking about

Some words of clarification, if you will allow me.

The reason I came up with words like “neuronarrative” is because I see a need for such word. It’s that simple.

I see that right now on the Internet “maladaptive daydreaming” has two pretty different meanings, and the phrase is used interchangeably with no explanation in many different communities.

It’s like you have two groups of people. First is people who love drinking alcohol on the weekends or holidays, enjoy it in moderation, like talking about it and creating new cocktail recipes and so on. And second is people who struggle with alcohol addiction, feel like their drinking is out of control and wish they could quit it. And both groups use exactly the same terminology!

As you can guess, it creates a lot of misunderstanding and confusion. You have some people who talk about how much they love their daydreaming and how it helps them in everyday life and who think it is the most wonderful thing in the world, and you have others who haven’t left their house for three days because they couldn’t stop daydreaming or who lost friends because of their daydreaming addiction. Both exist alongside in one community and call their experience maladaptive daydreaming.

I think it’s not fair to either of them. Those who think daydreaming is a positive force in their life need spaces to enthuse about it and share their stories and feel like they are not weird or wrong. Those who think it is a negative force need spaces to complain about it and seek help and discuss their problems and not feel like their issues are diminished. And accurate terminology can help separate them and better articulate their thoughts and explain their experience and reduce the misunderstanding and conflict.

So that’s why I came up with “neuronarrative” to describe unusual and intense daydreaming that isn’t seriously harmful to the person experiencing it, and wrote an article to explain the difference (http://autisticworlds.tumblr.com/post/153905673680/new-terms-and-explanations). I’m not saying you absolutely have to use my word, but I do think we will need separate terminology at some point.

But essentially it’s up to you which words to use. The community is new and diverse. There are no rules. Do what makes you comfortable. It’s your choice. I wanna call my experience neuronarrative. You can make up your own word, or use other words - reclaim them, change their meaning, adapt them for your use.

All I want is less confusion and confrontation and a better community where people’s needs will be met and where they can feel safe and welcomed. But I’m just one person. It’s up to you, every single individual in the community, to choose what to do and create a place that is good for you. And I’ll try my best to help you.

Chat Noir grinned. “Good thing I’ve got nine lives, milady.”
She rolled her eyes and grabbed his tail, wrapping it around her palm to give herself a steady grip. “Just take a peek and let me know what we’re dealing with.”
He nodded and leaned in, glancing around once his torso was fully inside. The skyline was almost identical to the Paris skyline on the other side of the portal, except it was now a silhouette with the sunset as its backdrop instead of the sunny afternoon still warming his legs and forearms. He jumped at the sound of a soft chuckle beside him, and he turned to see a taller, more broad-shouldered version of himself watching him.
“Are you lost?” the other Chat Noir asked, balancing his baton on his shoulders.
Chat Noir stared, slowly looking him up and down before asking, “Are you…me?”

I’m ranting, keep scrolling.

I still don’t really understand why Rip would leave Waverider and Gideon. Why? Like.. why? 

Waverider and Gideon are the only things he has left. Like, for a long time now actually. The man basically live on the ship!! He took the Legends in and they are basically living on his ship and then now he felt unwanted and decided to leave his own home? I always thought Waverider and Gideon are soooo precious to him. And now he is just going to give them up to others that are so inexperienced in time travel? Isn’t that a bit weird???? Huh? 

Isn’t that a bit lazy on the writers’ side??? Or I am demanding more from them? 

IF Rip does want to leave, I expect a more emotional reaction from him towards the ship and Gideon than just simply walked away. Talking to Sara is expected because she is currently the acting captain of the ship, and also their bond is quite strong too. 

Even if it’s just saying goodbye to Jax is better than just leave. Putting Waverider in Jax hands or asking him to take care of Waverider etc etc. … He trained/taught Jax all about repairing the Waverider and such and made Jax a very valuable member on board. No attachments on that? Really?


Also… I find the Legends not really acknowledging Rip’s departure a bit disappointing. Not a squeek, at all?

I expect too much I suppose. 


I miss Rip’s spotlight in Season 1. The good old days. He went from main role to recurring role in season 2. >_> 

Arthur Darvill’s Rip hunter is the main reason I kept watching the show, despite his absence in some. Because there’s an underlining promise that he will be back. With Aruba finale, he left the ship voluntarily, I hope when he does return to the ship, he would be storming mad and ranting, about messing the timeline and having to clear their messes. 

“..broke time.” That’s would really got Rip angry, 100000% sure.

But if Arthur wants out, then I’m out too. Not gonna keep following the show every week unless something sparks my interest.

Oh my gosh wooooo!!!! Thank you for letting me know! I’m so glad you like it! I love that they have real homes 🙊

So, Laurelinde, you’re just about to turn 40. What are you going to do next?

Now that I’ve thoroughly mangled that ancient meme and booked our flights, let the actual trip-planning commence!

Book: Outlander
Author: Diana Gabaldon
Pages: 896
Genre: Adult Historical Fiction
Rating:  ★★★★★ (4.5/5)

Synopsis:

The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of Our Lord…1743.
Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life, and shatter her heart. For here James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire—and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

My Thoughts:

This is going to be a short review because let’s face it, no one wants to hear me gush (I feel like gush isn’t even a strong enough word for this situation) about Outlander all day. Let me preface this by saying that I’ve been obsessed with Outlander before even reading it. I started to watch the show at the request of a friend and from that day forward I’ve been a mess. If I’m completely honest, I was actually really nervous to read the book because I’m just so in love with the show; I was worried that the book would some how ruin that for me. I’m happy to say that it didn’t, in fact it may have fueled my fangirl heart even more. So you must be wondering, “Jess, if you loved it so much, why would you only give it a four and half stars?” Well my friends let me tell you. I generously knocked off a half a start for three reasons. 1.) There was a scene, I think it was chapter 24, that pretty much infuriated me. I get what was happening, and I loved the scene in the show, but no means no and stop means stop. 2.) At times the book seemed to really drag on. I mean I loved it at times, because the world the Diana builds is so captivating, but I just wanted to yell, “Give me the good stuff!” 3.) I felt like the romance was lacking, especially in comparison to the show. Towards the end it started to pick up and I started to swoon but it didn’t hit me as much as it did in the show. Also the love scenes were so fade to black! I was not expecting that, especially for something labeled as a “bodice ripper.” Please do not let those three point sway you from not giving the book a chance, because it’s really good and I’m so happy to have read it. Also, please do yourself a favor and watch the show, it’s honestly the best thing on TV right now, possibly ever. 

In all seriousness though, this is a fantastic series filled with wonderful characters, enchanting writing, rich history and a heart stopping romance. Please just go read/watch it!
