-Looking and feeling like a hot mess. Good God, you guys should see my nasty, swollen, allergy-ridden face. I'm all puffy and watery. Ugh. :X
-Plowing through, however; I have a database final and I must persevere.
-Waiting for everyone to arrive.

Thanks, Kristen. :hug: And dress crops! It's summertime (even though Seattle doesn't know that), and if they're dressy you could totally pull them off. Good luck on your interview! When is it?

- Becoming very bored for some reason.

- Listening to some music from one of my favorite (and underrated) RPG series, Aveyond. And, realizing that the internal speaker on laptops takes away some of the "atmosphere", for example: the "Evil" theme (whenever the villain shows up) has some big bombastic drums incorporated in his theme, but because of the internal speaker, you can barely hear them. Actually, that seems to be the case with all the "big sounding drums" unless it's a snare where it sounds fine.

- Is very proud of herself, as she was able to unclog her own bathroom sink (Drano works wonders! :) ) without any trouble.

- Is rather confused about why they (my parents) took the projector back downstairs, and hoping they have the old one back upstairs soon so I can get back to playing my Wii.

- Has a question about my Debit card: does the "good thru 5/14" mean May 14th or sometime in May a couple years from now? I suspect the former, which might mean I need a new card, I think? I don't know! I've had this bank account for a few months, and all I want to do as of right now is get $10.00 out of my saving account, put it into my checking account (which it won't let me do, as it gives me an error message on my phone) and buy the QFG 1-5 on GoG! Is that too much to ask?!

- Is happy that her account on Wizard101 is working again! Atleast, the program on her laptop is, but for whatever reason her desktop program isn't. Weird.

- Reading stuff in the Spinoffs section of Protectors of The Plot Continuum. It's fascinating!

- Has the theme from Super Mario Galay 2' Puzzle Plank Galaxy (I think. The Western sounding one atleast.) stuck in her head. Ugh...

It's the month and the year. Credit cards and debit cards don't have an expiration date so much as an expiration month and they're usually good for at least a year or two. :) You'll be sent a new one automatically when it expires.

-Talking to boyfriend.
-Wallowing in misery and pain and the knowledge that my parents really don't care about me at all and are completely apathetic about having repeatedly ruined my life bit by bit, like losing me my health care plan, my surgery date (time is of the essence here, so postponing is a really horrible thing considering irreversible quality of life stuff), violating my rights to my body, etc.
-Hating all of my family with a bitter disgust that can only be imagined by functional people.
-Playing with pointy things. On my ankles and wrists.

Deloria, don't think you're alone. Remember that you've got a whole family here that loves you! <3

-Drinking water
-Waiting for my sister to get out of the shower so I can take one
-Realizing how cluttered and messy my desk is...ugh...how I have been living this way for the last few days I don't understand, but by God, this room will be clean before day's end!

- Listening to some of Pokemon Black 2/ White 2' music. It's pretty good!

- drinking a soda

- Reading Lord Brocktree, the first in chronological order in the Redwall series. I'm finally REALLY getting started on reading them all, now that I have The Rogue Crew (2011).

- Is slightly annoyerd that my internet has been screwy with me today, because I'd FINALLY figured out how to beat a certain boss in a certain dungeon in a certain MMORPG I like to play (Pops O'Leary, The Ironworks, Wizard101), and my internet messed up, which means that I'll have to go through the dungeon AGAIn just so I can do two things (admitedly, the first thing came after I got out): Pick up five crates in the dungeon, and read a book to continue on a sidequest.

EDIT:

-Watching someone on Youtube play Black2/White2 (aparently it was actually a stream he was recording)... in Japanese. The game, not the player. His commentary is kinda... meh. But, it's nice to see what the sequel brings to the table.

You know, speaking of your wiki, I have to say: your "Cray's Companion" article is REALLY good! *sigh* Why can't I write as well as you, I honestly don't know.

-Revising my hit-list to include the idiot doctor/"expert" who made me feel guilty and called me inconsistent for rejecting a hysterectomy, and then he called my alternative choices “grotesque” and me disgusting. Choices I now have to make because he ruined my quality of life and my relationship and any future relationships I might want to have with life-altering surgery that he doesn’t want to reverse. And then he "helpfully" suggested I take oral contraceptives or get an IUD. Clearly he hadn't even read my file because I've been on oral contraceptives continuously (without breaks) since I was 16, currently have an IUD and am taking oral contraceptives and my body is *still* messed up enough that I still have a cycle when I shouldn't. This is particularly stupid considering that I wouldn't have had several invasive operations without trying simple things like hormones first. WANT TO KILL. >:(
-Looking for tissues.
-Crying.

Just takes practice! And being naturally awesome, I suppose. :P That is going to be getting a solid reboot, however, as soon as The Silver Lining is finished. I think I worked out the kinks, but I just need to make sure... the whole goal is to try to create a "fanon" that uses as much of all the other fan-made stuff as possible.

-not knowing why I'm awake right now.
-giving Deloria a  :hug:

You really do match up the timeline quite well, Sir Cray!

Although... *smiles and steeples her fingers* I AM wondering how you're going to handle BOTH The Father AND Shadrack being in the same timeline. I mean, they're technically both the head of The Black Cloak Society.

Does this mean they're partners and working together for the Ascension? 

Is one of them higher up in rank then the other?

Or are they one and the same?

Or, did you write this timeline before Shadrack was revealed?
