I have finished campaign 1 and there are tears
Absolutely thrilling to have a (half) new blog title, lmao
jenny odell, how to do nothing
Day 6, episode 11 and I need more Yasha in my life so heres a self indulgent sketch to feed myself🙃
I tried the ‘I AM’ method today when I had a free moment. It was 10:10. I was a bit distracted today both while shifting and during my daily meditation, but I managed to keep myself together.
But for the first time, I could see a white light in the corner of my vision; it seemed like there were waves of energy flowing in front of my closed eyes. I ended up opening my eyes due to surprise, but I was still in this reality. I felt weak, but thought nothing of it at the time.
But ever since, something has seemed…wrong. It seems I’m not 100% in this reality anymore, at least from what my urge to close my eyes tells me. I feel weak and limp–my eyes can’t focus on one spot anymore–but I stay awake…I hope this is a sign of sorts, but I’m unsure of what it means. Prehaps the universe is testing me; prehaps I’ve shifted slightly. I ground myself by drawing on my skin and paper–it appears to help for a moment.
also tough getting into the critical role fandom because i’m at like episode 13 and i’ve already spoiled a bunch of shit for myself by just not avoiding the fan content
still playing catch-up over here!
Enjoy day 23: abo-dynamics with shadowgast

smut under the cut!
“Shh, it’s okay… I’m here…You don’t have to do this alone.” Caleb’s voice was so soothing, and so was his hand rubbing little circles into Essek’s lower back as he clung on to Caleb for, what felt like, dear life.
Essek had forgotten how intense heats were. He’d been on suppressants for decades now, never having felt the need to bother with a heat, much preferring to get rid of his natural cycle, lest it got in the way of his work.
But when he’d met Caleb, a lot of things had changed. For the first time, there was someone that Essek trusted with all of this. At first, he’d been adamant to ask Caleb about it, since those things worked differently for humans. He’d been scared of rejection, but of course, Caleb had proven him wrong, like so many times before, by being nothing but gentle and understanding.
I simply cannot accept a Caleb without freckles. Unbelievable and inconceivable.
AKA yes, he’s really been in love with Jester this whole time.
as for the meaning of “mist”… [from wiktionary]
Mist m (genitive Mistes or Mists, no plural)
1. manure (domestic animals’ excrement mixed with hay)
2. (colloquial) crap, bullshit
I constantly wish I was talking right now about Fjord and versatility and adaptability, but also I don’t know how to focus those thoughts, so it’s just extended incoherent yelling.
But Fjord’s entire thing, now even his Oath, is about adapting and changing, being as versatile as possible, finding the ability to be prepared for any challenge, including the unexpected ones, and knowing how to use what you have at hand to succeed, even if just barely.
That’s always been one of Fjord’s greatest merits, and I’ve thought so for a long time. It’s the jack of all trades quality about him, about how difficult it is to catch him on a back foot for too long, about how quickly he acclimates, then thrives.
It’s a quality in him both as a narrative character and a mechanical one. He can become any person he needs to be in the moment, and how malleable his bearing is reflects that. He can stand his ground in most mechanical situations, and the options available to him is a deep well indeed.
He is flexible, ever-changing and ever-shifting, always becoming that which best serves him in any given moment. And it continues to be fantastic.
do u ever cry bc a fun home game that started between friends has now bloomed into a subculture phenomenon with its own network with a comic series, animated show, charity and now publishing company?? bc i do
