trek-blogging

i’m on a sorta-but-not-really hiatus. meaning i’m keeping my trek blogs regularly updated but i’m not here as much. unfortunately, tagging is a lot of work and it’s too time-consuming so a lot of things are being queued without a tag.

please reply to this post or send an ask (anon or not, i won’t publish) if there’s something you want/need tagged. i’ll make sure to add it when i’m reblogging things.

the hiatus is most apparent if you read my work i suppose. thank you for supporting me. it’s hard to get into this without giving away too many details but something happened in fandom that really fucking hurt me last year and on top of all the health issues, the fire just kinda died a bit.

i guess a break was due though because i’ve been writing here non-stop for 3 years, which isn’t really anything impressive when i know some authors have been at it for literal decades.

in any case, i just need a rest. so i’m sorry if you subscribed to me on ao3 for trek things and you keep getting messages that i’m posting for another fandom. it’s a small fandom, but writing about another subject i love deeply has done wonders for changing my mood toward the whole process of creating a story.

so yeah. that’s what’s going on. i don’t plan to stop writing for trek forever because i love it so much. (it’s the hotel california. you can check out anytime you like but cant nEEVVEERR LEEAVE) but i just gotta step away for a bit.

anyways, please lmk if you need anything specifically tagged!

Times like these we need Star Trek more than ever. It’s not just a show. It’s a collection of ideals, and the most central of these ideals is simply “we are better than this. Humanity is better than this. And someday we’ll act like it.”

I’m so desperate for that hope right now.

There is a lot of fear and uncertainty in the world tonight. When I feel scared, I try to take a step back, close my eyes, and feel my place in the universe instead.

The problems and challenges we face are indeed intimidating and significant, especially when some people fear for their very lives. But there is a future worth heading toward. The universe is so immensely vast. It will endure. And so will we.

“I believe in humanity.”

Great Pyramids of Giza - Egypt

The pyramids of Giza are some of the most recognisable archaeological sites in the world. The pyramid is estimated to be made from around 2,300,000 stone blocks, that weigh anywhere from 2 to 50 tonnes each. All built around 2580 and 2510 BCE,  the Pyramids here amazingly all line up precisely, with the Constellation of Orion. 

Despite the extreme heat that Egypt experiences, the temperature inside the Pyramid of Khufu (the largest of the three pyramids) remains a constant 20°C.
