[livejournal.com profile] outdatedclocks has pointed out that my lower-back/hip problems, and my leg problems, are probably all related to the issues I have with my feet (lack of arches?). I've been making do with CVS-brand arch support pads, but they're not really enough, and I'd like to be able to do some cardio and upper-body stuff again, which I can't really now since my back hurts alllll the time. I'd been putting off talking to my doctor about it because of my terrible experiences with my last one...even though this one's shown no indication she's suddenly going to go all 'you're lying, you must be sneaking nachos in the middle of the night, fatty' on me. In fact, she'll probably be happy to help me out, since she wants me exercising before I go on T since I have a genetic disposition towards hypertension (dad's been hospitalized for it).

BTW, for those curious about the whole doctor saga, since I've posted it around a few places but not actually here at my main journal I think (since I just realized last night [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom had never read the whole thing)...I submitted the whole thing to First, Do No Harm (excellent blog BTW) so you can read it here (it's so long I don't see a need to copy+paste it here P:)

Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom, we might be hanging out this weekend :D or rather, probably are. I am still working out the logistics, I think I'll stay on campus this weekend and take the train into the city. It would mean missing a therapy appointment, but I've skipped weeks in the past (or rather, therapist has cancelled on me) so I know it won't do any damage emotionally or to my comfort level with him.

Okay I really should go to class 6 u 9;;

Hey guys! I know I got a bunch of new friends from that [livejournal.com profile] ontdcreepy friending post, and actually I've gathered a lot of new friends in the past month, who knows where from. Also I am feeling a bit down today because I had to drop someone from my friendslist for unexpected homophobia. Also, having a bunch of new people watching me on their flists kind of intimidates me a little? o u o;;; I am pretty shy. So I figured we could do a little introduction thingy? By which I mean I dug up an old meme.

So here's the deal: You post in the comments and tell me three things about yourself, and ask me three questions (about whatever you want). I'll answer the questions. Then you go ahead and do it yourself in your own journal c:

(Don't worry, if you're shy too and don't want to do it or if you just hate me and don't want to actually bother to talk to me, I won't be mad or anything)

(Also old friends can do this too, it's not just for the new ones)

Soooo Paige is playing Animal Parade, one of the newish Harvest Moon games. (I am still only good at A Wonderful Life, but she got Two Towns for xmas and has offered to let me try it)

I am watching her start the actual plot, which involves rescuing the Harvest Goddess. Apparently nature's power is drying up, and this has some sort of...effect on the people, as well. She says soon people would not be able to live there. Also, children are...disappearing.

None of the characters seem actually all that concerned about the disappearance of their children.

What if they haven't disappeared? What if they've been...hidden? The townspeople have no way of knowing what the Harvest Goddess wants; so if they started to make guesses...out of desperation, since they literally can't leave (the town is on an island, and Paige informs me there is very little wind, so it's difficult to leave the island)...well, TBH, that the Harvest Goddess might require a sacrifice wouldn't be an entirely unreasonable guess.

But what would the sacrifice do to her? To the land that apparently depends on her and this mysterious 'power of nature'?

Well, I was just thinking...not much grows in Silent Hill.

SO HERE'S THE THING I have realized recently that most fans of X-Men have their own mutant self-inserts already all worked out in their heads and well

I'll show you mine if you show me yours

(That is only half as sexual as it sounds, if you haven't seen the First Class movie yet, and yes I am looking at you [livejournal.com profile] anobjectinspace)

I will also show you Paige's because she is too busy writing actual X-Men fic. Also if you want to be in the fic then give permission as well??? That was not going to be my intent with this post at all but it seems prudent to give all you bbs an opportunity to be written into her epic 'mutant team that actually makes sense and does superhero things instead of just training kids to attack ex-boyfriend' fic.

For those not sure about the mutant levels, here's the scale I'm using (there are some dif ones):

1 - mutants that can't do much of anything. You generally don't really see them in any of the continuities because they can't fight. A few of the morlocks are like this (just physical mutations).
2 - limited powers that can't be improved on with practice. Kitty/Shadowcat (in most continuities)
3 - limited powers that can be improved on with practice. Kurt/Nightcrawler (in most continuities, again)
4 - strong powers that have limited application or are easily negated. The Summers brothers (/Cyclops & /Havoc) + 'not-Summers-brother' Remy/Gambit; the Cassidys (/Banshee & /Banshee); Pietro/Quicksilver
5 - strong powers that have broad application & are difficult to stop. Erik(etc.)/Magneto (taking the 'magnet powers' explanation); Raven/Mystique; Rogue

Omega - gamebreakers. limitless power, often characterized by having to work to CONTROL rather than IMPROVE ON their powers. Xavier/Prof. X; Apocalypse; Shaw; Wanda/Scarlet Witch

Also yes I put down our actual real names (sans last name) but you don't have to do that lol. In fact you don't even have to do this whole bio thing I am doing, just tell me ur self-insert mutant side.



Nobody say anything about me being slow, okay, I know.
