      Everyone should be aware that Melrick and I are suffering from an inability to actually “get a room” anywhere in the world right now.

      I hope so… I mean, honestly I’ve paid for so much therapy this year they give me a discount now.

  12. Wishing @DemonGoddess a very Happy Birthday, from one cranky old thing to another! :wub:  :hug:  :bday: :wish: :party:

  13. So, it’s been a rough few days. My mom is in hospital with congestive heart failure, exacerbated by COPD, atrial fibrillation, and Parkinson’s. It’s been one step forward and two steps back for the past 4 days, but at least I’m allowed to see her for a couple of hours each day.

    So, if I’m a bit more absent, or crankier than usual, I apologize in advance.

      I’m so sorry… I hope she will improve. Please take care of you, Bronx, as well as your mum.

      :hug:

      Thank you all, and for the good wishes :hug: 

      It’s a work in progress. I mean, I accidentally turned up at work yesterday. The universally recognised protocol is to call in sick, but then I haven’t been well… :shifty:

      :wub: to you all.

      Love you @BronxWench and @Melrick

  18. I’m confused here. I got a ‘disclaimer’ review on one of my older stories (Denial) from mod PIPPYCHICK. It includes this text:

    Quote

    Your disclaimer doesn't have one of the two parts we need to see. It must say that no money/profit is made. Saying that it’s just for fun or just for entertainment purposes is not enough.

    BUT! my disclaimer for that story states just that. I double-checked, and the disclaimer has these words exactly:

    Quote

    I do not own TMNT, Hellboy, or any mentioned music, movies, etc; I make no money from this. I DO own Alesha, Maggie, Dante, the Willows, and Amber...and coffee. LOTS of COFFEE.

    This is the basic disclaimer format I used for that series of stories with the exception of the word “story.” (I think maybe I ran out of characters…? I dunno. It’s been a while since I even thought about that story or series. Anywho, I replied to the email immediately upon receipt of it but haven’t gotten any answer yet. (I can't recall if replying to the email will do any good. In my defense, I’ve been oscillating between fine and suddenly retching most of the day.)

    Was this an error? Does acknowledging ownership of my OCs throw the rest of the disclaimer into question? Was my dorky joke about owning lots of coffee the problem? Or does “I make no money from this” translate to “Dude! I’m totally getting paid for writing this story!” and somehow, I’ve never noticed before?

     

    I’m so confused right now. (...or am I queasy? Or is it both? ...both. Both is good.)

      Oops… I am so sorry! I am moving, mostly in secret, and so this week has been a bit of a daze.

  19. A lady by the username of Maidenhair, who used to be a regular on here years ago, has sadly passed away.  She was a funny, selfless person who was always willing to help others.  56 is way too young.  RIP Linda.

      I know it seems impossible to find sometimes, but it will come back one day. I have no doubt.

      @Melrick It was a brilliant day, and I adored spending it with you (as far as we can at any rate). Thank you, Sir. :wub:

      Thank you all so much!

      And it was a great and an incredible day, thank you. :hug:  I went out to see a castle, and then one of the oldest churches in England, managed to avoid the showers, and then out for an Italian for tea where they sang Happy Birthday to me, lol. It doesn’t get much better than that.

      Btw, I am now going backwards, and I’ve decided to start at twenty-five, though when I get back to school age I expect to be wagging it again.

  24. Why do all the ideas that sound awesome and inspiring at night sound so ridiculous and boring in the morning? Is it the sun?! Is the sun ruining all my fun? Bite me, sun! 

    1. pippychick

      pippychick

      Everything and anything is possible at night, because the majority of people around you are dreaming, and you deal in dreams.

      Then, in the cold light of day, those same people are suddenly wide awake and cynical, and you know all they want to do is criticise.

  25. I took a challenge story back on March 24, and since then I’ve

    1. Calculated a Hohmann transfer orbit from LEO to the Earth-Moon L4 point.
    2. Calculated another such transfer orbit (from Jupiter to Earth) to represent the planet-killing asteroid’s fall toward the Sun and thus the Earth.
    3. Looked up several minor moons of Jupiter.
    4. Done research into how dark matter can hypothetically collapse into small objects like planets or asteroids.
    5. Looked into the differences between baryonic and non-baryonic dark matter, to explain why nobody sees the object coming but it can still cause a mass extinction upon impact, and…
    6. Done research into a proposed space colony (the Stanford Torus) to have dimensions and structural plans for the station upon which our characters escape the devastation being inflicted on Earth.

    All of this for a mostly-incest PWP where a young man, his mother, his female best friend and his elder sister must repopulate the human race.

    I may have gone overboard.

      pippychick

      Sounds like a great story though!

      I reckon all writers must be curious people. All of us do lots of research, more than we strictly need (or ever use). Perhaps the combined google search history of humanity’s writers would contain the entirety of human knowledge.
