After extensive research I’ve finally finished him. I know posting this here has no real relevance, but I enjoy to share anyways. I’m excited to play!
I’ve formatted it so that I can bring a tablet with me and use that as my character sheet. It’s going to be so convenient. I know where all my things are. As he levels up I can modify the page, add new formulas.
I want to follow a sort of character development arc where Atticus realizes he’s being self destructive. Starts to clean up his act and use his passion for what he really loves.
Frequently Asked Questions on Twitter. Is Atticus gay? Yes, obviously.

(Alternately titled: Getting Hot and Bothered, and Not in the Fun Way)
Arin kind of fucking hates the gym. He really only started going because a friend gave him a year’s membership with a pointed remark about exercise and he was fucking tired of her bugging him. (He’s starting to think he might need some better friends.) It’s either too warm or too fucking cold, all the equipment stinks like someone sharted on a skunk, and there’s always all these people around who are clearly better at exercising than he is. It sucks big sweaty balls—another reason to hate the gym. He’s pretty sure you could drown a cat in how much he sweated today.
Of course, there’s plenty of reasons to go to the gym: being healthy, getting in shape, the really cute girl who’s usually on the treadmills by the weights when he’s here, y’know. The usual reasons. Not that he’s one of those creeps who goes to the gym just to ogle girls! But the locker rooms are co-ed—because it’s fucking Los Angeles and they’re a hippie, go with the flow establishment—and her locker is right above his.
⚡️Tae first comes to the island following Jinki, ends up sort of friends with Minho oops. ⚡️Doesn’t visit that often? But likes to send Minho nice warm rain to make sure his plants are all doin ok. ⚡️ Likes to send lightning sometimes just to ruin island naptime. ⚡️When Taemin falls off his lil cloud, Minho puts him on his shoulders and grows into a tall tree to help him back up into the sky (usually after Jinki makes a million “did it hurt…when u fell from heaven” jokes)

Like I have this hc that Nico knows like 9 languages
There’s a new, really young camper who’s native language is Korean and can only speak a little English. Everyone’s like “Oh no, how we gonna explain everything???? Nico just rocks up and speaks to them fluently
People are like???? When??? How????
And he’s just so casual about it “When I was figuring out how to shadow travel I ended up in a lot of places ya know”
“Do you watch anime subbed or dubbed?” “Neither, the dubs are normally wrong so I just watch it in Japanese” “Uhhhh…”
He likes a lot of foreign punk bands pass it on
Him and Piper have conversations in French to annoy Jason
Frank can sort of follow along (He’s Canadian guys) and his Grandma also taught him a little Mandarin so they try and chat in that and it’s just funny
He overhears Leo talking about how pretty Calypso is in Spanish, or cussing out his project that just won’t work and he’s there like… “You know I speak Spanish right?”
Percy feels superior because Nico can’t speak fish but he’s just “Yeah, it’s not my type”
Here’s a preview of my piece for the @gfwayfaringstrangerszine . I’m really humbled to be part of this amazing project with so many incredible artists. I hope you’re looking forward to it as much as I am!
Hint about the full piece: it’s the origin of one of Stan’s phobias…

Reasons to watch the New Russian Holmes series (2013)
I’ve blogged a lot about this show over the last month or so, but I’ve been meaning to make a big post about it all in one place, so here we go!
A brief intro for those who care:
Sherlock Holmes (2013), or, as it seems to be popularly called, New Russian Holmes (as opposed to the old Soviet Holmes), is an eight-episode Russian-language Sherlock Holmes adaptation directed by Andrei Kavun, starring Igor Petrenko as Holmes and Andrei Panin as Watson. It first aired in Russia in November 2013, but has had no official English release.
Because it is excellent. I don’t want to spoil people too much because discovering things yourself is really the best, but let’s be a bit more specific:
The opening credits:
Even before the first scene, we get treated to a beautiful opening sequence with really great music, but this isn’t just a sequence to shove credits in your face, it’s not even just an aesthetically pleasing series of shots of Watson’s notebook, the opening sequence forms part of the episode and part of the series as a whole.
Every opening is unique, from the images to the voiceover, and is as much a part of the story as the substantive scenes themselves.
The refreshing take on canon:
If you’re going to watch this, you need to know that the fundamental premise of the show is that the ACD canon lies. Watson’s “stories” are just that: stories. Holmes in real life is different, Watson is different, Mrs Hudson is different, the cases went differently, hell, even Gregson is different. So if you’re looking for a faithful replication of canon, this isn’t the show for you, but once you take on board this fundamental premise, it’s fantastic because it forces you to think about canon in a new light, and to consider the implications of Watson as an unreliable narrator.
You’ll get to see how and why Watson came to write “canon” the way he did, and you’ll get to see how everyone reacts to it. Every other adaptation (with the exception of Bert Coules’ radio series perhaps, but even that adheres to canon quite strictly) treats canon as more or less the “truth” and bases their version off that to create an output; this show treats canon as the output, and works backwards to imagine the “true” series of events behind it. This aspect (at least for me) was one of the most delightful themes to watch develop throughout the episodes, and it really shows how much original thought and passion went into the conception and creation of the show.
Watson as the true protagonist:
This sort of follows on from the fundamental premise of the canon stories being mere stories. Watson is the person through whom we get to know Holmes; everything we read is Watson’s doing, so it’s natural that the protagonist should also be Watson. We see the world from Watson’s perspective.
It’s not a story about this genius Holmes and his sidekick Watson, it’s a story about Watson and his adventures with this intriguing man, Holmes, and in that way it makes the show very grounded and very real.
Holmes the nerd:
For some reason, Igor Petrenko’s Holmes has been likened to Robert Downey Jr.’s Holmes, but I don’t think that’s accurate at all. Whereas RDJ’s Holmes veers more towards grubby cocky action hero who happens to be good at reasoning (and I don’t say that with any scorn), Petrenko’s Holmes is very much grounded in the same sheer intellect that defines canon Holmes, only this version is a more flawed, nervous character, which I think makes him more interesting. Petrenko does an excellent job with the quirks and mannerisms of the character. He also keeps insects in jars in his room.
Watson the military man:
A lot of adaptations emphasise Watson’s role as a doctor, but few seem to remember that he was also a soldier, so it’s refreshing once again to see this series not only acknowledge that military background, but to explicitly keep it front and centre the entire time.
Watson the surgeon:
For all its joviality, the show doesn’t shy away from graphic realities either. Watson is more than just a doctor, he’s a surgeon. We see him handle the scalpel more than he does the stethoscope.
Watson the badass:
I know I’ve posted a lot about this but seriously Panin’s acting is really one of the highlights of this show, he was such an excellent actor, absolutely convincing in his role.
Brand new revised subtitles by yours truly!
Over the last two months I’ve gone through and edited all the English subs for the series, so hopefully everything will read a lot smoother! Any remaining mistakes are entirely my responsibility.
Sort of reminiscent of the tone of the Soviet series, this series shares that light-heartedness, but it sure as hell isn’t a joke either. It’s not dark and edgy for the sake of being dark and edgy. It doesn’t pull the cheap trick of taking advantage of your feels. The series sets out to tell a story and it tells a beautiful story and you will genuinely love the characters for who they are. And you will feel good about it. Yes, you will even love Lestrade.
Watson taking a bath:
The hilariously bad English (I laugh in good faith):
The creepy autopsy man:
This weird ass scene:
Moriarty hiding in the first fucking episode no less
not showing you, you have to spot him yourself
And finally, their timeless friendship:
Never has a show felt more genuine or more satisfying to watch when the final credits roll. This is a Sherlock Holmes that has had thought, love, and appreciation poured into its making, and it shows.
I’m tired. You’re tired. We’re tired. Let’s both agree to be
civil to each other until June, ok? We’ll get through this together, and we’ll
look back and be amazed at the things we’ve accomplished.
I’m tired. I’m tired of trying to hold your students’
attention, and then grading their half-assed work. I’m tired to having to
explain myself. I’m tired to defending myself. I’m tired of coming in every day trying to be
a fair, firm and kind educator and being called unkind, unfair and
I don’t pick on your students. I do, however, expect them to
be responsible, kind advocates for themselves. And if they have a hard time
with that, I try to help them learn these traits.
Please stop trying to fucking sue me.
Please, leave me the fuck alone. I know I’m new, but I am
not going to be your chess piece. I understand the changes coming to the
district. I understand you and people on my team don’t get along. I don’t give
a shit. I will do what is best for my students in my classroom. Please stop
adding to the enormous amount of stress I’m under.
I am kind, not weak.
I am inexperienced, not stupid. I am collaborative, not dependent.
i’d like to thank the 100+ lovely people that follow me by doing my first follow forever for this blog!
it’s been around 3 weeks (?) since i’ve created this sideblog & i’m really glad to see all the people who continue to support the pd101 trainees since the show ended—whether or not their fixed pick has debuted. seeing all this positivity makes this website such a fun place to be on, and i’m glad to be a part of it.
so, without further ado, here’s a shoutout to all the people who radiate positivity:
