Bad news first. I’m not going to be posting the rock star/bookshop AU starting Monday as I’d planned. I’m really sad about it, but I feel like it’s the best decision. There are a couple of reasons behind this. First, the story isn’t as tight as I want it to be and you guys deserve my absolute best. If I drop it right now I feel like it’ll be good, but not what I’m capable of.
The second reason is the good news. You guys are going to end up with two Ian/Rose stories. @rishidiams and I have started working on another Ian/Rose that we’re both really excited about. With Rishi working on the story, you know it’s going to be amazeballs. But since I couldn’t split my focus between the two stories and I have Rishi’s attention right now, I decided (after MUCH deliberation) to set the rocker!Ian on the backburner for the time being.
I AM COMING BACK TO IT. I’ve written twenty-three chapters of that story. It WILL be posted. I made Rishi swear that she’d help me get back into rocker!Ian mode when we finished with the Ian/Rose we’re working on. I’m also trying to write some epilogues for RE, but I can’t promise posting dates for those.
So…in the not-too-distant future, you’ll be getting back-to-back Ian stories. That’s good, right?
The more I think about it, the more I notice that the only japanese ynfangames I fully like and not only enjoy because “I liked the main character’s dessign and a couple of areas” are Witoru and Phoenix Dream.
Idk, lately I’ve been feeling like I forgot how to like fangames.
Oh my god, in last night’s Bob’s Burgers, Bob takes Gene to a laser light rock show at the planetarium (super important to Bob, because it was his favorite when he was a teenager, and this is the last night before they’re closing the exhibit because it’s old and no one goes anymore, also it’s Bob’s birthday), and Gene has no idea what he’s in for, but he gets pumped for it anyway ‘cause Bob’s so excited about it, and finally they get in there and they’re watching it, and Gene has a sensory overload and kinda starts freaking out ‘cause he can’t handle it, so Bob takes him out and they sit in the car for a bit. Gene’s angry because Bob didn’t tell him it would be so loud and scary, so Bob offers to play the album for Gene at a normal volume, and Gene starts to enjoy it, so he reclines the seats, takes out the cigarette lighter, tells Gene to pretend it’s a laser, and starts drawing in the air, explaining the plot to him (it’s like a full on Pink Floyd or Rush-esque rock opera about a bunch of robot overlords telling rockers that they can’t play music anymore, and one Rebel rising against them). Gene gets really into it and decides he wants to see the finale of the laser show (which Bob regards as a life-changing experience), so they sneak back into the planetarium (there’s no re-entry allowed) with a few tricks that parallel the story from the album, and watch the climax of the show together (Bob fashions some earplugs for Gene out of a napkin). On the way home, Bob’s asking Gene how he liked it, and Gene says “I loved it!”, Bob asks him to speak louder ‘cause his ear’s are shot, and Gene yells, “I LOVED IT, DAD”. Bob yells back “I love you too, Gene”.
I FUCKING!!! CAN’T!!! DEAL!!!! WITH HOW GOOD THIS SHOW IS!!! I know i don’t talk about Bob’s Burgers a lot but this show is flawless and charming and gross and funny all at the same time, the characters are written like people with actual fears and anxieties, and unlike a lot of comparable shows, the comedy doesn’t come from the family being pitted against each other, it’s always the family against the world… I love it, I love it, it’s so pure and refreshing and still somehow manages to be funny without sacrificing it’s heart, and I fuckin’ love it, please watch Bob’s Burgers holy CRAP okay I’m done.
Finally, there are robots robot boyfriends who wear each other’s clothes. (Clothes? Pieces?)
I’m sorry this one too so long, since most of you know I’ve been dealing with chained concussions on and off for over a year. Still, this was such a joy to do, because Zenyatta is my sweet boy - and now looks like General Grievous’ jedi cousin.
Genji looks a bit odd to me still, and don’t even get me started on how Zenyatta taught him to float… But I took a fair amount of artistic liberties with their designs since neither of them have full reference for the parts of their bodies that aren’t covered? It’s like they planned this.
