I recently went on pain meds, and they ended up boosting my appetite hella big, and I started binging. I gained five pounds and I'm already overweight. :T Tips for easing myself back into under 500 cals and fasting again? I can't exercise bc of a severe injury, doctor's orders.
Maybe switch to a different pain medicine or eat very filling foods like salad and vegetables and fruit so you feel full longer. Drink green tea with ginger (ginger helps with appetite), apple cider vinegar, water, and coffee. Eat spicy foods(if you are okay with spicy), and oatmeal. I wish you luck! 💗
You killed the Doctor. Oh yes, I know, dear. I hope you’re not going to keep on about it. Oh, regeneration. It’s a whole new colouring to work with. You killed the Doctor on the orders of the movement known as the Silence and Academy of the Question. You accept and know this to be true?
“I have never had great expectations of my performance or of a film. I try not to think about the outcome. If you look that far ahead, it sort of taints your choices as an actor. I try as hard as I can to believe that no one is ever going to see it and that it’s not even a movie. Then you can allow yourself to bare more.”
Doctor Who Gifset (Read in Order)- I made this encouraging gifset for the start of the New Year, and for anyone who needs a reminder that life is brilliant and that they are just as amazing. And, if they don’t want to hear it from me at least they can hear it from the Doctor. Because despite everything they have been or are still going through they are special and loved more than they could ever know.
You ever think that Nico would be scared to persue Will? Like he sees this beautiful ball of sunshine and healing and /light/ and he cant help but think, “I could never forgive myself if I corrupted that”. He cant even imagine Will in the Underworld, Nicos home away from home, because theres just no light or music. Then one day in Hades palace he hears these weird sounds and in the old ballroom there is Will surrounded by music and firelight and dancing, singing, laughing souls. And nico laughs because Will literally managed to bring happiness to ghosts with no memories even if only for a night. And Hades just watches from the shadows, smiling, as Will pulls his son in for the next dance.

The Ordu Aspectu from the Aphra comics are one of the newest examples of the new canon’s thing with Myfficness. By virtue of being a Jedi splinter group, the Ordu Aspectu would have interested me in itself, but even better, their exact history and nature is subject to dispute in universe, with two main competing stories.
According to Aphra’s father (as an aside: dead mom. daddy issues.*sighs*), the Ordu Aspectu were a Jedi splinter group who seemingly left the Order peacefully to do their own thing, were into actual real non-aggression and apparently found life so sacred that they refused to kill and sought immortality - and maybe left corporeality but not before being attacked by Jedi.
Those red saber, tho.
But maybe Aphra’s right and we’re instead looking at a Jedi splinter group who kidnapped a bunch of poor innocents padawans to sacrifice them in a dark ritual to attain their nefarious - ah, nope, sorry; no nefarious end here, the issue is purely over means:
But there’s better: the context in which the two versions of the story are told makes it all even better - it’s fundamentally two archaeologists disagreeing on how to interpret data. And there’s a third hypothesis:
Honestly, i would kind of love for that third option to end up being the truth. It’d be hilarious. But I seriously doubt it will. It’s not very Starwarsy as storytelling goes. It being included, however? Makes me think the data both tales are built on is purely textual; there’s no known material evidence of the existence of the Ordu Aspectu (otherwise that third hypothesis would have been either ruled out or given more gravitas), and even the text attestations have to make for really slim picking (and really, even if there was a lot of textual and material evidence the exact interpretation of it would still be subject to dispute).
Also: I have no idea what an argument over the possessive infinitive (what even is that?) could be like, but it sounds a lot like something Jedi grammarians could have highly philosophical arguments about, that would be likely to influence the official doctrine about things like the quest for immortality and the policy over attachment, and possibly lead to schisms.
Anyway, in real life, i’d be able to check the sources of these two different tales and research the context in which they appeared (who authored them, for which audience, and why) and take that into account when comparing the two versions, because both seem highly speculative. One sounds a lot like Jedi propaganda; the other… doesn’t. Those red sabers in Jedi’s hands? It’s possible they hint to how different the Jedi Order was back in the old days, but with how crystals become red in canon now it doesn’t seem very high on the probability scale - it’s way more likely to be an invention, maybe of Aphra’s father.
So - foregoing the Jedi grammarians, there’s agreement on the Ordu Aspectu being a splinter group of the Jedi Order who sought immortality; the details are muddled from there but both versions of the tale agree on the fact that it’s not the quest for immortality in itself the Jedi had an issue with.
*Jedi always seek immortality* is featured in both versions; the identical phrasing is unlikely to be a coincidence. It seems very possible that at some point in their history the Jedi weren’t against trying to prolong life for oneself or for others. But by the time of the twilight of the Republic they are; it’s considered as a Dark Side practice, and it goes against the philosophy of acceptation and non-attachment. So the conflict with the Ordu Aspectu could be the reason of that change, and have had a huge impact on Jedi philosophy as a whole.
