Lesson learned: Never fuck with Terminal.
Computer’s down for the foreseeable future. Gonna need to get my hands on a fresh install disc to reformat and recover info from Time Machine. Pretty displeased, I won’t lie, as the only place I can get stuff from is an hour away so I can’t go out there until next Thursday.
On the up side, not having a working computer means I’ll probably have finished Black Flag by the time I get it up and working again. (I’m at 74% total synch right now.)
Mobile tumblr until then.
also hey dudes are you sure homestuck isn’t about to end its gigapause tonight
because i’m considering trying to get some blogging done and WE ALL KNOW WHAT TENDS TO HAPPEN WHEN PFS DECIDES IT’S TIME TO BLOG
Apparently PFS turned two years old today.
It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long. I think about Homestuck and it feels like something I only just started reading, something I maybe started to sink my teeth into only a couple of months ago. It sure as hell doesn’t feel like something I started reading two whole years ago.
Then I think back on all the other shit we’ve done—livestreaming movies just to hang out and watch, drunken Skype chats at 2am, livestreaming the stupidly long Act 6 walkarounds. Playing Amnesia one night when the house was empty and, the next morning, my lamp sparking and the bulb blowing the second I touched my computer. Answering asks both publicly and privately, having all of you at the other side of your own computer screens become more and more fully-formed in my mind’s eye as we interact. When I think about it that way it feels like PFS has been around for a lot longer.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve been terrible with activity in the past few months (longer. Apparently I’ve got a reputation for showing up, blogging a lot in a couple of hours, then disappearing back into the abyss for another long while). But to all of you who’ve stuck with me this far: thank you. To those of you who’ve sent me messages when I’m off flying at hyperspeed through Real Life, whether they’ve been to check on me and make things are okay (such as after Hurricane Sandy) or just to chat about books or games or anime—thank you. I’ve made a couple comments before about how I’ve got the best readers (/watchers/listeners/PEOPLE WHO SEEM TO IN SOME WAY SHAPE OR FORM ENJOY ME DOIN’ WHAT I DO), and I still believe in that wholeheartedly. You guys are fucking awesome.
It’s been one hell of a couple years. Here’s looking forward to Year Three.
Anonymous asked: Clearly this means that the next afterstream should be a Skype call where we all drunkenly sing sea shanties.
i may have already learned “blow the candles out” which is a tavern song and not a sea shanty
and i laughed my ass off when i heard them start singing “spanish ladies” because i have had “rant & roar” by great big sea on my computer for ages and it’s the canadian variant of that song so WE’LL RANT AND WE’LL ROAR LIKE TRUE NEWFOUNDLANDERS WE’LL RANT AND WE’LL ROAR ON DECK AND BELOOOOOOW
this is a thing that 100% needs to happen.
QUICK TWO-SECOND CHECK IN (this is not a two-second check-in) because in spite of that Hark, A Vagrant! joke a couple days ago, I really do owe you guys an explanation of PFS RADIO SILENCE.
(Because as true as it is that I’m turning into UPDATE-UPDATE-UPDATE-SUPER-FAST oh look dead silence for a month or two, IT IS NOT WHAT I WOULD PREFER OR WANT TO BE KNOWN FOR. Life is hard.)
Here’s what’s going on:
- House of Hades (I READ THAT WHOLE DAMN BOOK IN A SINGLE NIGHT I HAVE NO SELF-CONTROL JESUS CHRIST)
- Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies demo?!?!?!?!
- HIJACKING FRIENDS WHO STILL HAPPEN TO BE IN SCHOOL AND FORCING THEM TO PLAY KINGDOM HEARTS/WATCH ATTACK ON TITAN????
- oh fuck no Dual Destinies came out on the same day i took said friend back to school goodbye my life
- (no seriously i fell into that goddamn game for seven days straight i started playing thursday oct 24 at like 6p and i finished it wednesday oct 30 at 2p i was staying up every night until 1 or 2am playing THERE WAS ONE DAY I WAS PLAYING UNDER MY DESK AT WORK WHEN I HAD NOTHING ELSE NEEDING DONE IT WAS REAL BAD I TELL YOU WHAT also i am not the only one who plays ds at work don’t judge me i have the decency to at least pretend i’m being productive)
- oh fuck no Assassin’s Creed pirates
- oh fuck no what is this you’ve got to be fucking kidding me what do you mean asscreed is coming out and nanowrimo is starting two days later what steaming pile of bloody horseshit is this
- OH FUCK NO WHAT DO YOU MEAN WE’RE DOING DANCING DEMOS THREE HOURS AWAY FUCK YEAH MAN WHAT TIME JUST TELL ME WHERE TO BE
- what do you mean you want me to teach a class this weekend what are you smoking have you and gamzee been hitting the sopor slime again
- i was supposed to do dishes and clean my apartment how is it 2:45 am am i an assassin yet i’m not entirely sure i’m even an assassin yet…………….
- wait no shit i’m only at 11k for nano this is Not Good
- okay i’m gonna write and then i’m gonna clean my apartment and then i’m gonna LIVEBLOG
- ALL RIGHT YEAH WROTE WORDS YEAH wait wait
- it’s 10:30 already
- am i at least an assassin yet i’m still not sure i’m an assassin yet
Seriously. Fuck this game.
(Fact about PFS: I am hopeless when it comes to pirates. HOPELESS. As such, Black Flag is Exactly My Cup Of Tea and Oh My God I Am Going To 100% This Game Aren’t I? …I’m only in sequence 4 and can’t upgrade my Jackdaw any more because everything else requires the elite plans, if that tells you anything.)
(Hello, my name is Precision F-Strike, and I have a problem.)
Anyways though. Basic gist of this is that NaNoWriMo + Asscreed FUCKING STABBING ME IN THE BACK AGAIN = you fucking guessed it. If I can get caught back up with NaNo word counts there might be updates? However. This is actually my 10th year straight doing NaNo, and as I have never lost before I DON’T PLAN ON STARTING NOW. So.
That’s pretty much that. I’m honestly considering leaving Black Flag with my moirail when I see him this weekend, so if I decide to do that, that’ll help with the entire GOD FUCK IT I DIDN’T GET A THING DONE TODAY JESUS CHRIST business. But we’ll see.
Also considering doing a slight change in liveblog format for the next little bit, if only because it might help me to actually update rather than. Sit on my hands until I have a chunk of time long enough to actually justify flooding dashes and building anticipation. (Because nothing sucks more than starting to read, JUST GETTING INTO IT…….. and then having to quit while bunches of you are sitting there waiting for more.) BUT THAT IS AN IDEA FOR ANOTHER TIME.
(short two-second check-in SHORT TWO-SECOND CHECK IN MY ASS jesus christ pfs way to write another fucking book …………….i wonder if i could sneak that in for word padding (no) (not really) (i don’t fucking need it I’m too wordy as it is) (I’M FUCKING POSTING THIS NOW BEFORE I GO OFF ON ANOTHER GODDAMN TANGENT OH MY GOD))
fabrimuch asked: After months of painstaking work, we have managed to determine through Liveblog Science that your liveblogger dancestor is: Form of a Liveblog (FOAL). Feel free to say hi.
wait does this make me mindfang
i will not write explicit fanfiction about my redrom/blackrom exploits just so you know
(but no tell me more about this this sounds interesting LIVEBLOG DANCESTORS?????)
fact: i hate making posts that are all “THIS IS WHY I AM NOT LIVEBLOGGING” because there are far too many of them made already and Excuses Excuses Excuses.
But whatever, I guess a post of “here’s what’s going on dudes” is better than radio silence.
So. Long story short, I feel as though I’ve been hit by a bus and it’s been going on for about a week straight by this point. Life has been a parade of migraines, eye strain, and the first cold of the season (it snowed today. Fuck you too, weather).
I mean, don’t necessarily take this as a “PFS ISN’T GOING TO BE AROUND FOR ANOTHER MONTH OR TWO” because no i’m actually hoping to liveblog some over the weekend, but
idefk why i’m making this post by this point jesus christ i’m not entirely sure i’m 100% lucid right now
I’m just gonna go to bed and possibly-probably delete this in the morning. (Why am I not just hitting “Cancel” instead? Because why the fuck not that’s why.)
Anonymous asked: Liveblogging when Homestuck updates? You must be a Time player, the unluckiest one of them all: the Chump of Time. One who has the worst timing.
No, no. My session already has a Time player.
I prefer to think of it as something niggles at the back of my mind going “hey you should liveblog” because it knows there is story incoming.
Which doesn’t help my case at all though, let’s be real.
