Leia Organa is covered in blood by the time she reaches the deck of Jabba’s sail barge. The broken end of the chain that had sought to bind her to her captor gleams in Tatooine’s harsh sunlight, wisps of hair pulled free of her intricate braid cling to the sweat on her neck and forehead, and a feral grin curls her lips and ignites her eyes to desert flames.
There is an ax in her hand, ripped from the dying grasp of a man who had tried to grab her as she fled out of the belly of the barge. He had grabbed her, and his blood had been the first to stain her chin, her shoulders, her hands. Its tip drips crimson, black, yellow-blue, the dying gasps of a dozen lives stolen by its razor edge and by the hands that grip its haft in a hold far too comfortable for a princess.
The wind tugs at her hair, coils around her ankles, brushes against her cheeks and forehead and bare shoulders. Welcome, welcomethe desert sighs. Welcome home, dear child of the desert…
So far all tests performed on my aunt have come back negative. And we still don’t know what’s going on. All we know is that she has an infection in her body that is causing her white blood cells to sky rocket. Doctors have her on really strong antibiotics and she has been intubated and is being kept asleep for most of the day. The antibiotics are helping with the infection but are taking a toll on her organs, specifically her kidneys. At this point it is really important to keep a close eye on her because organ failure is very likely at this point due to all the medication. Sadly there is nothing else that can be done at this point since we have no idea what the cause of the infection is. For now doctors are just doing their best to keep the infection at bay and that is all that can really be done at this point.
My mother has returned from outside the country and seeing her was really a grim site. In just two weeks she has lost so much weight. She looks like she’s aged so much in just these two weeks and it’s really hard to see. It’s easy to tell that she isn’t emotionally well. She cries about having to come back and leave her sister in such a state. Sadly all her job gave her was two weeks to be with her sister and told her that they couldn’t guarantee her job if she stayed any longer. Part of me wished that she would just have stayed with her sister for her own peace of mind and just said fuck the job. Sadly we aren’t in the best place economically and now even more so that we’re covering a big part of my aunt’s medical expenses.
My grandmother is also clearly being affected by all of this. Our family has tried to keep the details of the situation away from her so she wouldn’t worry and no one would really tell her the gravity of what has been going on. Seeing how bad things are the family finally decided to tell her about what is going on in hopes to prepare her if anything were to happen to my aunt. Since telling her she hardly eats and has lost quite a bit of weight as well. She seems to have gotten sick or a fever we’re thinking due to the worrying as well so that’s just another concern.
This is all just so stressful. My parents don’t really tell me much about what’s going on likely due to me already suffering from depression and anxiety but I listen as they talk on the phone with relatives. All of this makes me so anxious.
Out of desperation now our family is seeking out a type of witch doctor in addition to western medicine and praying. They’re scheduled to head out to talk to one tomorrow morning. I don’t know all the details to be honest. I don’t really know if I believe in that sort of thing either but at this point our family will try just about anything.
So it’s almost 2:30 a.m. here and I’ve just spent the last hour and a half reading almost every single one of the BnHA pages on TV Tropes (why? I have no idea. it entertains me I guess) and I found this little gem buried in Shouji’s tropes list and Google came through with one (1) image result for it and I I’ve got a lot of theories about the backstories and appearances of BnHA characters like Thirteen and stuff and I have solid reasons for most of them but When I said “what if Shouji had sharp teeth under his mask” I was joking dude I was just making stuff up for fun I didn’t realize it was actually true
My shifts been really slow tonight so I’ve been passing the time by listing what I need to do to finish the body rig and coming up with ideas for how to make the rig the face controls for my character so it can hopefully be done by Friday
