favorite-everything

I’m HOME, I’m HOME!

Wow, am I exhausted.

This past week, I was at a youth ministry conference in Anaheim with 600+ of the greatest people on earth. It was a wonderful week of learning, networking, reconnecting with people, and DISNEY. 

My coworker [the Disney NUT] got us free tickets, so the three of us spent all day - open to close - at Disneyland last Thursday. It was awesome. We saw 2 parades [the new Paint the Night Parade was my favorite - SO COOL. Everything was lit up, and the Frozen floats were my fave], rode 16+ attractions, saw tons of characters, and got 22,000+ steps on our FitBits in that one day. It was fantastic. And exhausting. I was so sore the next day. We walked to and from Disney [1.5 miles each way] and literally only sat down on rides and for lunch. I think I need a whole week just to recover from that.

Anyway, the conference was great - my brain was exploding with new ideas and new ways to connect, and that’s always a great feeling to have leaving an expensive conference :)

I got home at 1:30 AM Monday night [Tuesday morning]. Got about 5 hours of sleep in, and had just enough time Tuesday morning to show Emmy her new Donald Duck and Minnie toys before she was whisked off to the sitter’s and I was headed to work. A couple snuggles last night after work [as pictured] and I’m back at work for more meetings today… and tomorrow….and then I am FINALLY taking a day off. 

I have hit the point where I know that I am emotionally not okay [like crying most of the way to work this morning] and just need to hit the stop button. I am exhausted from traveling, I have the major sads from not being around my daughter this last week [read: I feel like I’m a terrible mother and mom-guilt is a horrible thing], my house is a disaster, and work is stressful right now. I just need to stop and breathe for a second. Alas, that’s hard to do right now - but I’ll be taking Friday off, and Monday if I’m still in a weird place. 

A couple GREAT things to look forward to: 1) Chris & I have a date night scheduled for Friday night. Dinner & drinks. So looking forward to it. 2) My mom and I are signed up for a yoga class on Saturday morning that is all based around the calming effects of adult coloring, meditation, and restorative yoga. So hopefully that will help this exhausted state I’m in…..if I can stay away through it all. 

Happy Wednesday, friends. I’m glad you’re here.

B. Jenet!

Favorite quote: Beautiful Victoryyyyyyy. Also remember when she told Mai she was past her prime in Maximum Impact 2? Savage…

Favorite storyline/ending: Her Garou ending. (And also when she and the rest of the girls who didn’t make the cut were ready to fight Mai, Yuri, and King in XIII)

Talk CritRoll to me

I haven’t been this excited about a thing probably since I was in middle school.

I love CR so much that I was willing to join twitter and twitch just to be closer to the magic

It’s all my favorite things: voice actors, dungeons and dragons, hilariousness, really emotional stories. It has it all. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I’ve been terrified. I genuinely care about each member of Vox Machina.

Not quite a podcast, not quite a show, episodes are up on geekandsundry.com and twitch, but I caught up on youtube mostly listening as I drove to and from work every day because it was easy to just put my phone on the playlists.

Matt Mercer is my new favorite everything, he’s so clever and creative and I love the true synergy between the players AND the characters. I love it when Taliesin and Marisha have little whispered jokes under their breath or when Vex and Vax show genuine sibling concern for each other’s safety. I love the idea of this little band of misfits all finding a true family in each other; Pike and Grog’s relationship is so important to me for so many reasons, same with Percy and Keyleth. Vax being bisexual and Tiberius being confused about his feelings with Allura are just bonuses feelsies. And Ashley Johnson is the CUTEST THING EVER. Basically I love everyone and their characters.

QUESTIONS:

WHAT IS YOUR SPECIAL TALENT/SKILL AS A ROLEPLAYER?
ERRRRRRM, when I get something going I think I’m pretty great at storytelling? Sometimes I feel a little self conscious because I go so hard with them sometimes. I like crazy, unbelievable twists, I love the cliche and the dramatic. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF ROLEPLAY GENRE, AND WHY?
Stealing Nessa’s answer here bc SOUL CRUSHING ANGST. I love writing and reading darker themes. I love violence, horror, angst, almost anything fucked up tbh. I’ll take some fluff in small doses too ofc (gotta balance it out~) fleeting moments of tenderness before walls are erected once more are my kryptonite.  

WHY DID YOU PICK YOUR MUSE?
I feel like I had muse for Rey before I even saw the movie tbh.  I was very resolute that I would NOT make another muse && that I would write fanfictions to sate myself if I had to. I’m weak as hell though and broke that rule before I was even a third of the way through said fic. As I was thinking up a plot I got to a point where I wanted to explore her character more, I wanted to see how she would behave and react outside of a set story (if that makes sense) 

IF YOU COULD WRITE ANY OTHER MUSE - BUT KNOW YOU DON’T HAVE THE MUSE FOR HIM/HER - WHO WOULD IT BE?
FINN!!! I was gonna write Finn at first but Rey ended up being more demanding. There’s also Jack Mercer from Four Brothers. I still might make him some day because I love that lil asshole so much.  I’m not that great at writing dudes though, which is why none of my male muses have lasted long.

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR WARNING LABEL TO OTHER ROLEPLAYERS:
Satan & Sloth Queen, because I’m SLOW as HELL (I’ll also rip out your heart at some point and make you wonder why you thought writing with me was a good idea bc PAIN)

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE VERSE OF YOUR MUSE?
I’m weak for the verse I have with @kcnobiating DAD KENOBI SLAYS MY SOUL!! I’m also super into my Rite verse (or a portion of it. I need to set up a timeline at some point) I love the idea of Rey being dragged across the galaxy by Kylo + crew doing whatever it is Snoke wants them to do as part of her training. I love all my verses to pieces. 

WHAT CRACK!SHIPS DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUR MUSE?
LOL Rey x happiness or a healthy relationship. 

WHAT IS YOUR SENPAI BLOG FOR SOMEONE WHO PLAYS THE SAME MUSE AS YOU?
heart eyes @darkwoven tho BECAUSE ACTUALLY FLAWLESS <3

ONE RANDOM FACT YOU WISH WAS A FACT BUT IT ISN’T:
I am NOT contemplating ANOTHER theme revamp.

TAGGED BY: @iskariouth
TAG PEOPLE: IDK WHO WANTS TO DO THIS?? IF YOU WANT TO I WANT YOU TO OKAY.

iamhisgloriouspurpose asked:

For the Fanfic ask: C, F, and G, please!

Already answered C.

F: Care to share a favorite hurt/comfort fic?

Hmm….it’s hard to pick just one. I don’t read quite as much straight-up hurt/comfort as I used to because I feel like people don’t produce it quite as often these days. 

I’m going to pick “Us Two” by Lady Charity, it’s a story that usually leaves me a crumpled mess of tears on the floor regardless of how many times I read it. (Or if you’re looking for something more indulgent, pretty much anything by angrbodagiantess. Though you should pay attention to the warnings attached to her stories before reading.)

G: Care to share a favorite crack fic?

EVERYTHING’S BETTER WITH BUNNIES by khilari and Persephone_Kore. If you somehow haven’t come across it before, just…go read it now. It’s so cute and it always perks me up when I’m having a bad day. More than that, despite the wacky premise everyone is still very, very in-character and reacting to the strange situations exactly as I would expect them to, which is why I can buy into the universe. 

There’s a surprising amount of feels along with the humor, because well–I can’t help but feel things would have been better in this universe, because when Loki’s emotions start getting out of control, he’s physically incapable of lashing out quite as much?? And his distress becomes immediately apparent to those around him, so they know he needs help.
