I've been writing this fusion fic of 13 Going on 30 for years. The earliest draft of this that I can find is from March 2, 2015. I work on it in pieces here and there, on my phone, in Google Docs, then Scrivener: March-May 2015 were big months, then September 2015, then January 2016, then July-August 2016. Now April-May 2017.

So. That is all to say that I was thinking of Westworld hosts, and I thought if this fic were a Westworld-esque robo-cyborg-host, I would be constructing it like this:
  • immense detail on the face, which is where the eyes generally start when you look at someone. If I spent the same amount of time tweaking the first 5k of this fic as I have on zero drafting the rest of the story, I'd probably have nearly twice as much written.
  • tiny solid pieces of internal organs, but nothing connected to one another; everything just jammed into the torso ungracefully. Thankfully, Scrivener lets me keep the pieces separated and summarized and movable.
  • half a leg. Or possibly two legs but separated from the torso. The fic is not moving anywhere, but it has the vague notion that it will at some future point in time.
(I never said this almost-blog would be interesting.)

Edited to add a quick snippet under the cut if anyone wants a few more minutes in 1989.

I signed on for [livejournal.com profile] come_at_once. First time. I don't know if that's a good idea but I did it.

Feel free to disregard, I just need a place to make lists, and oh my god do I have lists.
Ugh?? )

Okay this is just meant to be funny but:

Real fuckin MBTI Analysis

  • ENTJ: Your evil boss

  • ESTJ: Kid you've known since like 4th grade who is a perfect honors student with a billion friends and is awesome at sports and has a bunch of clubs and has never gotten less than an A in their life and your mom always asks why you can't be more like them

  • ISTJ: Computer nerd who knows way too much about space travel, might be currently building a time machine in their basement

  • INTJ: evil genius, probably walter white, scary

  • INTP: Quiet pretentious asshole

  • ENTP: Loud pretentious asshole

  • ESTP: obnoxious straight boy in gym class

  • ISTP: fucking crazy, also likes cars for some reason

  • ISFP: quiet dumbass

  • ESFP: loud dumbass

  • INFP: can be the sweetest angel but WILL turn into fuckin satan if you piss them off

  • INFJ: 24/7 martyr complex

  • ESFJ: 50's housewife and mom

  • ISFJ: needy perfectionist, wannabe INFJ

  • ENFP: best friend in any cliche teen movie

  • ENFJ: emotional spazz who always wants a hug

Evidently, I'm either a loud dumbass or a needy perfectionist/wannabe 24/7 martyr complex. Whoops. Vacillating between those two explains an awful lot about my personality, to be honest.

Haven't posted in a while, but here's a thing I lifted from a meme I was tagged in on tumblr:

Rules: Find out what characters share the same personality type as you here and list the characters that you find relevant. Then tag five friends and let them know you tagged them!
Okay. So I’m one of those strange creatures who sometimes tests introvert and sometimes tests extrovert. I do very often test ESFP, but I question whether or not these characters are necessarily relevant or similar to me. I’m basically side eyeing almost everything here except Merida:

My ESFP side is definitely the pleaser. The one I turn on (and don’t find it all that difficult to turn on, if I’m honest) to get shit done, to talk to people, to get through parties and events and things. A bit unsurprisingly, the name of ESFP is actually the Performer. Per the test above, it actually says I’m an “explorer” which is the following role:
a bold and freedom-loving individual who enjoys pushing the limits and exploring the unknown. You are known for your enthusiasm, social skills and ability to cheer up those around you. Above you will find a brief overview of your personality traits - proceed to the type overview to learn much more about your personality type. Prepare to be impressed.
But the other one I test as a lot is ISFJ (again, depending on the day), or the protector, and these I don’t side eye these nearly as much. These guys I like, a lot more than I like the above group.

So a bit sadly, what I take from this is that I don’t find it difficult to perform, to push my extroverted self out, but I like myself better when I don’t. Er.

I really wasn't kidding about that last post. I'd had it open for about 3 weeks, and I'm realizing, going back just a few days into my friends list, that I've missed a lot. Illness, depression, and god knows what else; I'm only on the 7th, and I think I've been off for the whole 3 weeks.

And I just wanted to say that I'm mentally sending everybody hugs right now. I don't even know if I should respond to everyone in their posts, but. Maybe this partially suffices. I wish there were something I could do.

I took a D&D 3.x alignment test. It was arduous and outdated, I was frustrated with a lot of the choices, but this was my final result.
