Emmerdale Live and Organized - October 18, 2017

Welcome to the pre-show. I don’t have much to say today. I guess I’ll talk about where I stand on everything. I think what is coming up is interesting.  It’s stupid. I find it funny. I also breathe a sigh of relief that I don’t have to watch Robert ‘bond’ with Rebecca. I was thoroughly ready for that to happen and yet it still hasn’t happened. Nor has Robert bonded with the idea of a baby. We are running out of time here. I mean, he could bond with the kid after its born, but I doubt that. Not the way the narrative has been going. I can’t tell where this is going and that is half exciting half nerve-wracking. I like that.

People seem to be melting down over the Lawrence stuff, and they have every right to, I just won’t be one of those people. I’ll cringe once the story gets going and mock it but I won’t meltdown over it. No one can make me meltdown over it either. The only thing I will meltdown over? GOATS. ALL THE EMMERDALE GOATS.

Oh, and I’ve been hearing reports that Darren aka EastieOaks and Andy of the DS forums are running their mouths. I need people to remember this. These two have been embellishing spoilers for a while to get views, clicks, and attention. According to them, Rebecca should have given birth this week, and Rebecca and Robert were supposed to start screwing each other. Did that happen? NOPE. So, anything that is said or implied is more than likely embellished. So, take heart in that and don’t let them drive you crazy. They aren’t worth your time or energy. Sit back. Have your bitch buddies on standby and ride out the story. It will get better soon. Also, think of other characters. Jai and Megan have a big story coming. Sam and Lydia are amazing, and Vanessa is entering a new world as we speak.

We always have December. *hums a Christmas song*

Let’s crack on, shall we? (Oh…it’s a Sharon Marshall episode…sigh)

Daz/Amelia/Dan

Daz and Amelia are cute together.

Megan/Frank/Jai/Eliza

Poor baby!

The panic she must be feeling as a mother. *heart breaks*

God. Just tell her! Geez.

Two freaking out parents doesn’t help her. I know its scary but hold it together for her sake.

Jai. Please. Calm down. *BUBBLE WRAPS HIM*

At least Megan isn’t freaking out. It will be ok.

Jai. JAI. She is getting tests and seeing doctors. Screw you.

The Café Crew

OH. I guess Daz got a job at the café! LOVE IT.

Daz being punished for past deeds? I mean, I feel like everyone deserves another chance. Let Daz have his chance!

Role play? I read a Robron fanfiction with that. *wink*

Oh. God. Dan and Kerry into role play. *Info I didn’t need to know*

“Good people do bad things.” That is the premise of every soap opera.

The Pub Crew

Oh god. Charity. Shut the hell up.

Also, Kath. I already love you. Don’t know why but I do.

UM….THAT’S NOT WHAT HAPPENED CHARITY. She is just on a roll right now, isn’t she? *eye roll* *My Sugden Protection Squad Shirt Comes Out* I know Charity is doing this because she hates herself so she must spread the hate to others (Robert and Vanessa). Charity is about to have her own breakdown? Something coming her way to make her repent for her mistakes this year? Maybe. Maybe not.

The pregnant ABBA REJECT! HA! I knew I loved Kath. So far: Lachlan, Robert, Chrissie and even Lawrence (earlier in the year) implied or right out said Rebecca is dumb. Is that significant? Discuss in the comments below or tweet me your answer!

HA! Kath saying for Charity to shut up. Shutting up Chrissie and the lesser White sister? Can Kath stick around? I kind of like her.

Vanessa! The fact she is being forced to do this because of Charity mocking her pisses me off. Well, good for you Pearl. *shrug*

David’s Grocery

Awww, that’s nice Frank.

“Do you like her? Charity?” “Does anyone?” – HA (I’m not a fan of Charity right now, but I know that will change)

Scrapyard

Robert looks great. OH…hey Tim. *shrug*

Does anyone work here anymore?!?!

Ok. I’m really into scheming, hot, sharp-witted Robert. *fans myself* I have issues, and I’m enjoying that.

✏ do it please

Earth raged outside the Ark, and the only Autobot who seemed immune to it’s call was Ratchet- who perhaps simply had the common sense to not stand outside in a thunderstorm while everyone else watched as light flickered and jumped between roiling, black clouds. There were electrical storms on Cybertron, of course, and on a thousand other planets, but something about Earth drew them from shelter into the rain, into the cold fall air.

Optimus wondered if it was the chaos of it all. He recalled electrical storms that rolled with a precision, maintained by atmospheric nanites- a necessary part of Cybertron’s ecosystem that never failed in it’s regular pattern until the war started to pull apart carefully maintained systems. The raindrops pinged against his armor with a tremendous internal clatter, the sight of white-yellow-blue in the lightening hard to gaze away from.

Even in the dead of night, there was light enough for him to see, here, and the clouds swelled and ebbed ominously, seemingly just as organic and living as any creature on the planet. There was a flash, bright enough to fizzle his vision for a moment, and a moment later a booming of thunder so tremendous he growled in subsonic response automatically, feeling Prowl’s delicate claws as the bike climbed up his side for a better view through the trees.

Prowl, of course, had his own opinion, one formed through slightly different senses. There was electricity in the air, that crawled over his sensory net, an overwhelming negative charge that rang like an EM field to him, and there was the smell of ozone- layered over the smell of earth.

Something about the oncoming rain had changed the output of the environment itself, hours before it occurred at dusk- the trees, mindless but deceptively aware, had responded with a twist of chemicals, the animals had sought shelter frantically, a quiet had fallen before the first raindrops fell, and now his chemoreceptors were swamped with wet leaves and decay, even with his antennae fully retracted it was unavoidable and almost oppressively thick in the air.

Smaller and lighter, the raindrops hammered his armor and left a lingering coldness- he crawled up to Optimus’ shoulder in part for a better view, and in part to leech the warmth from the larger bot, the subsonic reverberations of thunder leaving vibrations deep in his struts. It reminded him of being within’ a metrotitan, hearing and feeling their movements and slow communication.

Earth raged like a living thing. Pulsing and thrumming, the atmosphere no less a part of it than the ground, and they watched with bright optics as the storm carried overhead. Once or twice, they stiffened, wondering if they saw a glimpse of jet-like silhouettes, wondering if the Decepticon Seekers were dancing in the storm like they would past the edges of Vos, but nothing solidified to their gaze, and even in the storm, their shielding would hold to hide them.

In the morning, there was a clear sky, pale blue and the air was crisp and dry, the ground wet and soft.

Hatchet && Botulinum Toxin (google it)

You get the “Nerves End”

It’s a regular looking Hatchet, except the hatchets head is colored greenish, and the Mind aspects insignia branded on the handle.

It’s a hatchet, but something seems off with its head… It seems that the blade part of the hatchets head can phase through living organisms every few seconds. This seems to result in the nerves of the victim getting cut off (not in a literal sense; no signal can go through them anymore). This results in limbs going floppy and limp for a limited amount of time.
The Hammer Part can do roughly the same thing, but with more focus on specific muscles rather than nerves. Just hitting the desired muscle can make it limp and useless. This can kill someone if you’re aiming for the heart or the neck.
While this effect takes some time to cool down, you can use it like you would with any ordinary hatchet.

You can seriously incapacitate someone with this.

Tip if you live with room mates or parents:

Make your bedroom your SANCTUARY. Make a place you want to go to at the end of the day to relax, having a dirty room is so stressful. And I get it, you sit there and stare at it, but don’t tackle the clutter because it’s overwhelming. My advice, just start somewhere. Even if it takes you a few days. GET RID OF STUFF YOU DON’T NEED. Minimize your belongings. (Read DO LESS by Rachel Jonat. It has seriously changed my view on organization and clutter and has opened my habits and my mind to minimalism) I donate all of my unused but salvageable goods to thrift stores, because keeping them around to try and sell them can cause you to continue to be overwhelmed.
Then, once you’re room is cleaned, let your bed be your bed. It’s for sleeping and lounging only. Try to get a good desk for homework and study.
Then for decorations
GET COZY SHEETS, CANDLES, FAIRY LIGHTS, drape tulle or tapestries along your walls or ceilings with push pins or command hooks. (Small Holes in walls are easy to fix by yourself btw, just do a quick google search.)
Get a cozy comforter and comfy pillows. If you have an uncomfortable mattress, get a comfy foam mattress topper (@ target for $12) to help. Keep a little tray that you can lay your night time goodies on. Mine has a lavender pillow spray, a wide tooth comb, water bottle, Vaseline (I put it on my lips, lashes and brows before bed), and my notebook in case I have any wild ideas I want to jot down during the night.
Keep a catch all try by your door. Lay your keys, sunglasses, watch, etc. there, so you know where they are when you’re rushing out the door. Also, have a place to put your purse. If you can’t put a hook on the wall to hang it up, get an over the door hook hanger from Walmart. (I love this thing because I keep my purse, school bag, fave Nike hat and umbrella there, and I always know where I put them.
Use things like white boards, calendars, and pin boards to keep yourself organized, and design yourself a motivational vision board.
ORGANIZE YOUR DRESSER. Keep socks, undies, bras, tights in the top drawer, then shirts, then pants. But if you can, hang up tips that you know will get wrinkles easy.
Put a cozy rug in your room to keep your feet warm, but don’t forget to clean it, because if you have pets it will start to stink.
Keep clutter off your bed and DIRTY CLOTHES IN THE HAMPER. I don’t care if you need 3 hampers, idc if you need 3 hampers for dirty clothes and 2 for clean clothes, just KEEP THEM OFF THE FLOOR.
Play some chill music while you just hanging out. Light your candles, sit back, and enjoy your beautiful chill room.

Paper Organization

Okay so this for the anon from last week who requested this. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you… things have been crazy.

Important Paperwork

First it’s important to identify some of your important paperwork. These are what I keep set aside, but this is not a definitive list!

  • Personal identification like your social security card or immigration information
  • Tax forms I would keep copies of both your last year’s forms and your current forms (original goes to your tax man)
  • Driver related like copies of your insurance information, certifications or disciplinary information
  • Rental related like leases or rental agreements
  • High School/College like degrees and official transcripts
  • Voting info like voter ID cards or other registration info
  • Pay stubs keep these for up to six months
  • Contracts like any agreement you sign with your Internet or electric providers
  • Expensive items/warranties keep receipts for any item over $1,000 just in case

1. Make a folder. This, of course, doesn’t actually have to be a folder. It can be a binder, a box, I actually use an oversized Ziploc bag to store all my important paperwork. The key is that you choose an item that is easy to handle and secure (so that you papers don’t come tumbling out accidentally). 

2. Setting. Find an out of the way place to store this information. I would store it in a private part of your apartment or dorm room, somewhere not easily accessible. Obviously don’t go around telling everyone and their aunt where your documents are.

3. Commit to it. Anytime you receive a piece of important paper, immediately store it in your previously chosen place. Remind yourself that it will only taken a few extra seconds to properly secure your documents, and doing this sets an important precedent. 

4. Proof of residency. Proof of residence is something that any institution from your university to your health insurance provider may ask for. Proof of residence can be in the form of a rental agreement, utility bills, or pay stubs with your address on them. Always scan these documents and send copies to whatever service is requesting them, never send the originals. 

5. Pay stubs. I recommend keeping a backlog of your voided paychecks. Voided, in the sense that you’ve already deposited them into your bank account or had them direct deposited. When applying for insurance or a new apartment, you may be asked to provide several of these paychecks. Since these can stack up and become bulky, I wrap them with a large rubber band and keep them beside my important paper file.

6. Clip together. I like to paperclip together similar documents from different years. For example, I keep my different lease agreements clipped together.

7. Organize. Every six months, devote a half hour or so to organizing your file. Clean out any paperwork that is unnecessary or duplicated. Keep your documents up to date and as easy to navigate as possible. Always remember to black out any personal information on documents before throwing them out. I’ll clean my cats’ litter box, and dispose of my old important documents in a garbage bag with the poop as an added security measure. If you’re going to steal my information I’d like you to have to sort through my cat’s shit first.

I hope this helps!

Okay, but imagine if...

Cedric Diggory hadn’t died.

Imagine, just for a moment, that when they take the portkey, instead of an Avada Kedavra, it’s a Stupefy that hits him. Or that the AK misses him by an inch, hits a grave instead, knocks him out for a second.

Imagine that everybody forgets about the Hufflepuff boy out cold on the floor, because they are so intent on resurrecting Voldemort. Peter forgets as he ties Harry to that statue. Voldemort forgets as he is dumped into a cauldron full of flesh and bone and blood. And every death eater that comes sooner or later, well, no one tells them about the boy either - there are more pressing concerns.

However, Harry doesn’t forget. Because Harry has been in that sort of situation since he was eleven. He’s used to looking out for others, by now. Hermione and the Troll, Ron on the chess game, Ginny in the Chamber, Sirius and Hagrid and even Buckbeak- Harry always looks out for everyone, and never forgets about anyone, even if they are not really his friends.

So while he stares in horror, while he’s powerless and sees his greatest foe come back to life, a tiny part of his mind is screaming at him to check on Cedric, to get them out of here. Both. Alive.

Now let’s say that the ceremony, and the Death Eater meeting after the resurrection takes time. Lots of it. Let’s say that Voldemort, being the drama queen he obviously is, takes his time, and enjoys every single second of attention he gets from his followers and that Potter brat.

Let’s say he takes enough time for Cedric to come back to consciousness.

He awakes, lying in the grass and dirt, surrounded by bits of stone, his head aching and confused. The cup is laying about, not too far from him, and he could take it to go back but- he’s a Hufflepuff. He’s loyal. He doesn’t forget either, and that’s why, even if he’s confused about why or how he’s here, he doesn’t take the cup and goes searching for Harry.

Now, the tournament is a vicious thing, isn’t it ? Who’s to say to poor confused Cedric that this is not one more, secret, task ?

So Cedric goes looking, wand in hand, ready to fight, because he’s a Hogwart champion - and really, a Graveyard ? That’s creepy. And because he’s on his guard, and he’s moving around silently, no one notices him creeping behind one of the graves. No one notices the Hufflepuff boy, his horrified expression, and his frantic gaze as he slowly understands that no, that wasn’t a task, and that wasn’t a dream either.

Maybe not even Harry, or maybe he does, but that’s not the important thing.

The important thing is that being in Hufflepuff doesn’t make you stupid at all. The important thing is that Cedric is a champion, and smart, and a quick thinker and a hard worker.

The important thing is that Cedric thinks fast, and casts an ‘Accio’ on the cup as he runs towards Harry while he duels Voldemort.

He breaks through the crowd of amazed and struck Death Eaters, catches Harry’s arm with one hand, and with Seeker reflexes, catches the cup with the other.

Cedric lives, and both Harry and him go back to Hogwarts, terrified, bloody, and flinching away from the sudden noise coming from the public. They both live, and thus no one notices that something is amiss immediately, no one sees their wild glances around - as if someone was still out to kill them. The public cheers, and sings the victory of both Hogwart’s champions, and they are suddenly hugged by their families - the Diggorys and Weasleys.

No one notices, and that’s why when the noise dies down, and someone casts a sonorus on them to ask them how they feel about that victory, everyone hears them say, in a still disbelieving and trembling voice.

“He’s back.”

Obviously, everyone is confused, but they start talking, a bit over each other really, but they are in shock - and they say he’s back, Voldemort’s back, and he took my blood, and we were in a graveyard, and I was knocked out, missed most of the ritual, but it was him, yeah, and there were Death Eaters, in a circle, torturing Harry, horrible, had to get away, he’s back, he’s back.

And that’s when the people notice their faces, the blood, Harry twitching fingers - cruciatus - and their wands still clenched in their fingers, as if ready to attack anyone on sight.

This time, though, Harry doesn’t get ushered away by fake-Moody - because Cedric still has a hand gripping his arm, and wont let go for the world. He tells Dumbledore, and their families, though, when the Headmaster asks them to talk “More calmly and clearly, please, young men” at the Infirmary. Barty Crouch Jr is still apprehended, and the real Moody discovered, and it puts their incredible tale in a new, horrific and real, light.

Imagine if Cedric Diggory lived.

Two witnesses of His return. One is Harry Potter, Hero and Saviour of the Wizarding world. The second is beloved Hufflepuff Prefect Cedric Diggory, Hogwarts Champion. Even if people didn’t believe the first, they would believe the second, and vice versa.

Obviously, the ministry doesn’t take it well, but Amos Diggory and the Weasleys, and Dumbledore make a move together. Susan Bones helps her fellow Hufflepuff by contacting her aunt. Together, they get memory evidence - and they even agree on submitting to truth serum.

Because if Harry alone couldn’t do it - or had no idea he could - Cedric is there, and his father works at the Ministry, and he’s a seventh year. He knows more, and he has people ready to help him - and if he asks them, to help Harry Potter.

Sure, the ministry would try to get all this under the rug, but they couldn’t. Because Weasleys, and Diggorys, and Dumbledore, and Bones, and even Longbottom and soon every name that has a contact in Hogwarts - except some of the Death Eaters - are pushing for the truth to get out, and with a bit of blackmail, Rita helps - and this time, the Daily Prophet can’t repress all of them.

Imagine if Cedric Diggory lived, and how the war would have turned.

Imagine just.
