Carey had quickly established herself as one of the best thieves in the business due to good instincts, top-notch rogue skills, and pure enthusiasm for challenges. Her instincts had told her not to take this particular job, but the pay was too good to turn down, even if it meant meddling in the affairs of wizards.

Killian gets some bad intel. Carey does some cool rogue shit. Some wizard politics happen.

cinaed: Tough times don't last, tough people do, remember? (Gregory Peck)
So to distract myself from current events, I started watching Critical Role. It was one of those shows where like three eps in I was like "Eh, this is fun, but I don't know it's engaging enough to keep watching" and now it's a month later and I've marathoned up to episode 48.

The show has made me laugh harder than any other canon in a while, but it's also got some amazing character development and emotional arcs, and I look forward to eventually catching up on the whole thing.

So! Rambling thoughts on Critical Role up to ep 48 behind the cut.

MANY THOUGHTS ON CRITICAL ROLE )

....also I sort of want to write a fic about a librarian who's a cleric of Oghma has been trying to set up a public library hires Vox Machina to track down a stolen book from her collection, and shenanigans ensue. Mostly because Vex would cry over the terrible business model (what do you mean you let people borrow books and they DON'T PAY YOU?) and Grog would be very confused over this much fuss over a book. It doesn't even have any pictures!

Hello, Yuletide Writer!

I
m Cinaed here, Tumblr, AO3, and pretty much everywhere except real life.

First off, thank you for participating! I hope you enjoy Yuletide this year and that you have fun with my requests.

As you may guess from glancing at my fandoms and potential prompts, I like gen and relationships of any variety.

Stuff I love includes but is not limited to: found families, epistolary/documentary, friends to lovers, hurt/comfort, pretend couples (that turn into real couples), friends with benefits, people showing their care and concern by feeding the other person, gardening, developing platonic or romantic relationships, fix-its, missing scenes, and future-fic.

cinaed: Tough times don't last, tough people do, remember? (Gregory Peck)
tl;dr – I am turning thirty next Sunday and been having a months-long freak-out over it. And haven't really written anything since May, so there's that too.

So I am turning 30 on Sunday, August 7, and it's been freaking me out in both minor and major ways. Minor, in that “oh no, now my mother's REALLY going to start going overboard trying to get me dating” way (I expect to find myself involuntarily signed up for eHarmony by her any day now). Major, in that “This is in some ways where I want to be in life and in other ways NOT AT ALL” panicky way.

 Went to see an adaptation of Antigone today.

One-word review: YIKES. 

Longer review: I…don’t understand the writer’s choices at all. ANY OF THEM. 

  • Unexpected Antigone/Polynices incest! I’m just. Look, buddy, if incest is your thing, maybe consider doing an adaptation of Oedipus/Jocasta’s story. Just saying. 
  • …Honestly I think it was also implying Creon had a thing for Antigone too, but the acting choices in this were so bizarre I am not a hundred percent sure on that. Also weird Antigone/Teiresias subtext??
  • Haemon and Antigone were engaged, but then ten days before the wedding, Haemon sleeps with Ismene? Also why make Haemon a WASP-y dude bro, rude. 
  • Okay, so Eurydice doesn’t exist in this adaptation. Cool. Cool cool cool. 
  • …Antigone is possibly schizophrenic and definitely hears voices. I…no. Nope. 
  • Who are these two killers who keep showing up and murdering random characters? Like, I am pretty sure not this many people died in Antigone. Did these two weirdos wander off the set of a stage play of The Boondock Saints? 
  • …And then Antigone dies because Creon institutionalizes her and she jumps out of the window of her room. NOPE.
