Life without chapters: medical update · 2:19am Last Monday

Time doesn't operate with page breaks.

There were times during the month when I wanted to tell everyone what was going on. And I couldn't, because there was no stopping point. A single moment where I could simply pause and summarize, saying 'this is the nightmare thus far' and feel I could leave it at that for a while... no. Things just kept happening, because that's what life is: a series of events which continues until it stops. The divisions we impose on it are artificial.

If you don't mind my asking, do you speak english as a first language? I am asking because people love your stories, based on Triptych alone. You obviously tell good stories or, to be honest, i would have never known who you are. but i couldn't even get through Triptych in the first place because thoughts seemed to bounce all over the place, and too many words were used to explain simple things.

Rebirth of the author('s work) · 4:16pm November 16th

If a guy comes into the room holding a symbol of true kingship, the book is a high fantasy.

If he is holding a sword with pizza sauce on the blade and is accompanied by a talking penguin, it is low fantasy.

If he is holding a poorly described article that is clearly of great emotional significance to himself, but none whatever to us, and then he leaves the room without having done anything, it is a New Yorker story.

This other-party fundraiser is going to be both positive & awkward. (FIMFic member & blog update.) · 9:29pm October 31st

Sometimes I feel like the site's town crier. Look in this direction, for a brother be hurtin'! Also, I have a bell and I'm only very afraid to use it! If so, I'm a weird choice for the role: there are those better-equipped in raw numbers to spread the word, and my reputation for raw cynicism may proceed me. 'Oh, Estee thinks this person deserves assistance. I wonder how many orphanages they've burned down.'

Chapterhouse doomed: the agony of story-based microtransaction games. · 11:41pm October 24th

Dear Patreon sponsors,

There was a time when you were funding my casual game habit.

...and while I count the number of people who just stormed out on me forever, let me explain what that actually means.

Nopony's Truly Dead While Her Story's Still Listened To... · 7:41pm October 14th

It's funny. For some time now, I've felt that of all the stories in my catalog, While Their Name's Still Spoken is the most underappreciated. (As in 'Even on my worst days, I still almost feel it's remotely tolerable.') And now, courtesy of PresentPresent, it has what's probably destined to be a horribly-underviewed audiobook reading.

'tis the season...

The things people will do for roller coaster access.

Naturally, it is our duty to watch this a few times and make sure YouTube has to pay out at least $0.00000001 towards amusement park food.

(Remember: American amusement park. The only thing preventing them from charging attendees for oxygen is their inability to legally claim ownership of the atmosphere.)
