I think there’s been some kind of temporal distortion in the Library, because I just checked, and apparently a YEAR has passed in the real world, where it’s only been about two months here. Weird.
I hope I didn’t miss too many of my classes…
I’ve been spending most of my time in Real Life lately. Just now I saw the midnight showing of the latest Harry Potter movie – I literally reserved the last seat in the house! Totally worth coming 2 hours early; I was utterly floored by the awesome! =D I love midnight showings. They always have the general feel of a convention to them. 😄
I stopped in at the Library yesterday though, since I had some time to kill. Since I’m not doing NaNo, I figure I should enjoy the relative quiet around here. It got me wondering though: you’d think the Sues would take this opportunity every November to strike while we’re more or less out of commission, but so far there hasn’t been a peep. Curious, I looked into it, and discovered that suethors and badfic writers are just as busy as we are this time of year. Moreover, it seems that any Sues resulting from NaNo-fics have such low power levels that they don’t even register on our scanners. I think it’s because so few people actually read NaNoWriMo stories. Either that or the lack of detail in your average NaNo-fic just isn’t enough to create a full-blown, out of control Mary Sue. Hey, small favors, right?
I should probably go home and get to sleep before Aster finds me again. I love talking about Digimon, but not with someone who utterly refuses to use their English names. I love her, but I have no patience for fangirl behavior. Not to mention it’s hard to even get a word in edgewise lately. I think all the quiet is putting her on edge. 😄
Lily told me what she found out about Avak’s past… or lack thereof. Honestly, what was Ben thinking, making a character like that? A soldier program is questionable enough for what we do, but the psychologist in me wants to whack that boy over the head, because people aren’t born with a desire to fight! That only comes from past experiences – usually painful ones, at that. Avak was spared that bit of thoughtlessness, thank god, but I’m still left in a bit of a predicament.
He’s a sweet kid though, don’t get me wrong. Avak is, I mean. He’s always trying to help me out in the med ward, offering to fetch this and carry that. After Lily brought him back from her shopping trip, he even started asking questions about what I do, which gives me hope that we’ll make a human being out of him yet. And he still gets exposure to other people when he hangs out with me, which is why I haven’t kicked him out yet – there are worse places he could be hiding, after all. Nonetheless, I do like him, and I think he’ll make an excellent addition to the team… I just wish it had been under better circumstances.
Now there’s just the little matter of what to do. I could tell Ben my opinion of his little “project”, though that wouldn’t really solve anything – Avak’s already here, and at the moment he’s not really capable of being anywhere else. The change in Ben’s behavior also worries me – Avak isn’t the only one he’s been neglectful of.
I want to say something. Dear god, I want to speak my mind. But Ben would just get defensive and Avak would just run and hide. Nothing would get done and I’d have made a good friend mad at me. But there must be some way I can catch their attention without making it worse…
Dear Lord, I am hardly computer savvy. Thank God Phoenixia finally took pity on me and showed me how to work this silly thing. Only, now that I’m finally able to write something on here… I have no idea what I should say… Typical.
Well, for now I guess I’ll just wish everyone well, and if I have something to say, at least next time I’ll know where to find our blog! 😄
