Yesterday was a Very Difficult Day. Today is not going to be much better. Here, have a teaser of what promises to be a fantastic fix-it fic—but even if there were never any more than this, it still is exactly what the doctor ordered:

beyondthein-finite: i think a lot about how i love the way fx’s legion presents and deals with mental illness. there’s a scene where aubrey plaza baddie living in david’s hea has her stranglehold grip on david tighter than ever and in this scene she just walks through his brain, through all the rooms that make up his memories, his childhood memories and his adult ones, the things that are important to him visually represented by literal rooms – and aubrey plaza dances through those rooms, she waltzes through the visual manifestation of his brain and she trashes it. rips up the pillows and defaces the walls and goes through his brain like a storm doing whatever she wants to and with it, while david is locked up screaming in some corner of his own mind where he can’t move. i think a lot about that and how i’ve spent a very long time feeling like i was fundamentally broken like, as a person. and how i’m slowly discovering that all this time it’s been that thing, this whole mix of messed-up chemical imbalances and genetic tendencies and whatever else contributed to all that up there, running around in my brain and through all those rooms, tossing pillows and scraping its nails down the walls while sometimes i’m trapped and can’t do anything about it. so i think a lot a lot a LOT about how much i love legion’s answer to this – that knowing what’s actually going on doesn’t mean you can instantly get rid of it, or that it isn’t going to keep kicking your ass. it just means that once you know the real problem you can find much better solutions to this. and that you’ll need other people to do it.

Looking at my reading list/friends list these days, I get these big "18+" watermark sort of icons plastered across text that was copied/linked from elsewhere--LJ, or tumblr, even other DW communities. I assume it has to do with their content settings, but is there any way you know of for me to turn it off? My settings don't have any bar on adult content viewing, or anything like that. I figured I'd ask here first.

Taking Sam/Rowena prompts

Y'all, I accidentally (I swear) wrote (sort of) death fic for my [livejournal.com profile] spnspringfling recipient, [livejournal.com profile] de_nugis. And now I feel super guilty about it, and would so welcome any Sam/Rowena prompts that might strike you. I promise nothing, but guilt is a powerful motivator.

While I'm here, let me wholeheartedly rec the Sam/Rowena delightfulness that was written for me:

Title: i saw a video essay about this, once by [livejournal.com profile] duckondebut
Pairing: Sam/Rowena
Rating: PG-13
Any warnings: vague spoilers for s13, some depictions of violence and gore, mild swearing

Completely charming and hilarious, the author got Rowena to the last beautiful, snarky degree, and I loved it.

Hi there! What do you need (or want) to do around the house this weekend? I'm going to do some routine cleaning, and also at least one more interesting task. So far my plan is:

- clean the bathroom
- sort out and recycle packaging from orders that arrived earlier this week
- go through all of my running medals and identify those I don't need to keep
- pick up odd items lying around the guest room

Let us know your plan, and how it's going, I'll be back for updates and cheering!
