If you find Discord unusually slow tonight, someone on Twitch accidentally DDOS'ed their servers. They're working on trying to kill the server they created, but with several million people flooding into it, they can't even get to the button to delete it.

So heyyyy, Cassidy and Cassian (bromance names now being accepted) were in the infirmary and stole some drugs but they left notes for the staff. Only Cassian signed his note. Any resulting fallout is welcome. Sorry, Guppy & Co.!

Okay, here goes my first daily entertainment post. Since no one did one yesterday, I guess I ought to make sure we don't miss two in a row.

If your pup could have any theme song, what would it be?

[personal profile] iprotectyou in [community profile] ways_back_room
Despite Baze's initial protests, he and Chirrut have erected a sign warning bar patrons in several languages that the sun burns. The sign is located on the border between the lake and the beach.

The languages are as follows, courtesy of Google Translate Bar's help:
Aurebesh (Galactic Basic): Beware of burning from the merciless sun
English: Beware the burn of merciless sun
French: Méfiez-vous de brûler du soleil impitoyable (Beware of burning the ruthless sun)
Russian: Остерегайтесь ожогов от беспощадного солнца (Beware of burns from the merciless sun)
Japanese: 無慈悲な太陽から燃えることに注意してください (Please be aware that it burns from a ruthless sun)
German: Hütet euch vor dem Brennen von der gnadenlosen Sonne (Beware of burning from the merciless sun)

ETA: Maru has kindly provided a more accurate German translation: "Hütet euch for der Glut der gnadenlosen Sonne," which translates via Google as "Beware of the glow of the merciless sun."

ETA2: Check out Anna's graphic for translations in Wraith, Alteran, and Latin!

Since I have no thread brain and work isn't allowing play anyway, my impulsive self is looking at other pups to play at some point, likely sandboxes cause of bandwidth issues.

America Chavez, because damn you Marvel. You suck, but sometimes you do things right. Plus, she'd be a lot of fun.

Jack Wolcott, from Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series. Thinking of came_tumbling_after as a user name and I have a bunch of icons cribbed from classic b&w horror films with mad scientists for use.

Ehren ex Cursori, from Jim Butcher's Codex Alera. Scholarly spy with a fondness for knives who seems pretty unfazed with life and odd things. About the only way he could be more my jam is if he were a shape shifter or teleporter. Only name I sort of have is study_of_cursors, but I'm not committed to it. I want to read more of the books first before doing anything farther. PBs are either Ben Whishaw or Mika., Ben Whishaw in Perfume: A Story of Murder would work really well.

Is there some bit of canon or plot that you are ignoring as it is a stupid-assed decision?

Bonus question: I recently noticed my profile for a pup was woefully out of date and needed reworking. Post in with your pups and we'll review their profile and offer any suggestions we might have.

What would your character as a child--say, age 10--think about what's going on with your character nowadays? What would your character five years ago think if they could look ahead to the present?

I hope that the heat isn't being too difficult for anyone, heat and humidity are awful.

Pam is angry, Baze and others don't help.

Hera and Kanan try to get ready for what might happen next.

Eden tries to improve.

Now what are you loving and finishing. I had a wonderful family visit but I'm glad to be back.

 Part of my recent self care is trying to do a daily meditation. Nothing huge, just five minutes in the car before I walk into work. Today I forgot and so just took five minutes in my cube, using a guided meditation on youtube. The search 5 min meditation auto filled to either "5-min calming meditation" "5-min mindfulness meditation" or "5-min goth meditaion"...wait, what? I'm all for dark expressions and aesthetics, but goth meditations?

Of course I had to look and there was no results that were actually goth, but I am amused that someone had to have entered that search stream right?

And once more I am on another day of little sleep. Third day in a row now where I've only managed 6 hours and let me tell you, I am noticing a decrease in my mental faculties. (I had to pause there and figure out how to spell 'row'.)

In the quest of self improvement, I came across an essay about how anxiety can present as anger and it was like a light from above switched on. I've always been fearful of my temper, often thinking of it as the classic Irish stereotype, but all the times I've lost it or snapped, I'm usually feeling overwhelmed, threatened, or panicked. I need to dig deeper into this, but it seems legit and has helped me take a deep breath and step back when I feel like attacking or yelling.

I've also come to realize I suffer much more from impostor syndrome than fear or laziness when it comes to creative things. Like I know I am creative and always have ideas for making art or stories, I can't stop the ideas, but any time I think about making them happen, I hit a wall. I've always read it as fear of making the thing badly or a general laziness, i.e. writing takes so long, but i think it's more a little voice in my head telling me I'm faking it. I'd like to know where I got that voice so I can pommel it.

OK. Time for pain meds, caffeine, and music to see if I can find my way out of my mental fog.

Wednesday DE: Fight!

 Sorry for the lack of DE yesterday: I was in ITIL class when the alarm went off, and just forgot afterwards because, hoo boy, ITIL.

So, DE for today inspired by last post on the comm: your character gets attacked by a) an axe crazy, b) an Internet troll c) some religious or political loony taking umbrage at them in RL. What do they do?

Fight Club update

[personal profile] notapilot in [community profile] ways_back_room
I bet y'all have missed the chance to hit each other in a Security approved environment haven't you? I know I've missed watching it. It's been, what, a few months since an official fight club? Well, RL came up and kind of mugged me, which ruined any thread slots I had available.

But fear not, there is another!

Sahaal ([personal profile] exiled_heir_of_the_eighth)'s mun was asking about fight club and what when into running it, and has decided it is a thing they can help with! Accolades and cheers for them! Rules might shift a little in wording as a different character writes the rules, but the one rule of fight club (both OOC and IC) stays the same, Security is the only party that can forcibly break up a fight. Characters can try words and reason, but only an official Security pup can step in to break up the fight is the sparring turns ugly.

So dust off your gloves, oil your swords, and sharpen your spears, fight club should be back soon.

Welcome to another week. May you crush your to do lists and have fun!

For today's topic...it's been hot, like stuck to the vinyl, itchy skin, burning eyes hot. Or your pup just got through with a big fight with someone they care about. Or they know they need to have a talk with said person, but are dreading a fight. Or there is a thing that needs doing but they can't do it quite yet...either way, whatever the cause, your pup is feeling anxious and stressed. What do they do to try and calm themselves?
