my fave dated/cheesy ride is Ellen’s Energy Adventure with Bill Nye

I sort of love that it’s 45 minutes long and obviously pasted over an old dinosaur ride. That kind of thing is why Epcot is my favorite theme park ever - it feels like, hand-crafted?? in this weird way. It’s not slick, lol

Man, I love Maelstrom!! My family and I always go on it! It’s such a hidden gem!!

Exactly, It really felt like this little hidden pocket of Disney weirdness and fun. wahh. The “dated” feeling of Epcot is something I really treasure, because it’s like a time capsule! And the stuff that’s been tied-in to movies and other pop culture stuff (Honey I Shrunk the Audience, the Michael Jackson thing from the 80s) was actually dated in a not-charming way, so to see them doing more movie tie-in stuff in that park is kinda sad.

I’m amazed that I didn’t hear about that from my friend who still works there. Also I started at Disney like 6 months after 9/11 and I’m glad I missed it. The whole back end of my park was on top of a giant propane tank, so everyone panicked.

What does your friend do there?

Yeah, it sounds like it was a very uniquely creepy experience, and I’m sure at the time it was just scary as shit.

skrtomg said: Maelstrom, nooooo! I'm upset.

I know! Maelstrom is one of those classic Epcot features for me, not on the level of Spaceship Earth but pretty prominently up there.

I’m glad my last ride on it EVER was that time with you when we were getting kind of goofy and laughing at the trolls. It was good personal send off.  ;_____;

Also, check out the Disney World subreddit if you want to read a lot of fans reacting angrily. It kind of ate my entire afternoon. (That, and the 9/11 at Disney World thread that made me unexpectedly emotional…)

epcotcenter:

It’s official.

R.I.P. Maelstrom.

noooooo! Well, at least I got to ride it again (two times? three? I can’t remember how many times we went back lol) last year ;__;

My husband is working from home today, so I asked him to send me some cat pics. I received this.

~Thank you so much!! I love writing about him when he’s in a low place and acting desperate. I like Cartman/Wendy, too, and I wasn’t feeling it in this story but I’ll probably write it again eventually. I actually sincerely like Cartman/Clyde, lol, it works for me. Very happy to be spreading the Craig/Butters word as well, because that pairing is an underrated GEM
~Ahh, good timing! My plan is to finish it before the end of the month, we’ll see how that goes. I’m glad you’re into this Token - I love writing about him sort of wanting to escape the pull of this small town baloney but being very attached to the people he grew up with at the same time.
~Man, I can’t even describe what went on there without doubting my own memories. It was really wild. It was called the ‘Unofficial Hey Arnold Fan Page’ or something like that, and it had this message board run by a girl who attracted drama, but it wasn’t just her - other people met there and got married, at least one of those couples also got divorced, and the main posters were really up in each other’s very personal business all the damn time - I remember this girl making a drunk post and the mod publicly saying that she clearly had a drinking problem and needed help? The mod also had an affair with a married poly woman whose husband was the one who took pics and later tried to blackmail the mod?? And even before that the mod was loaning this couple hundreds of dollars??? It was entertaining from afar, though occasionally distressing. I don’t know what it was about Hey Arnold! that created that environment, honestly.

FIC POST oh my god

I tried to post this fic on Tumblr and it froze two computers, which is possibly part of the spirit of this gift — I started this fic for Sekrit’s birthday and since that occasion has long past it’s just dedicated to her.

Sekrit: Tumblr hated this fic in essence, it was rejected for being over 10k (?? a lot mysterious problems were had). So it is truly for you, and cannot be reproduced as text on Tumblr. Thank you for our initial fun oyster restaurant conversation about this fic and for subsequent oyster restaurant conversations — may there be many more.

get it here, folks

Finally posted a couple of old fics on AO3, including:

Leave the Pieces - This is the big chapter story I wrote after Scenic Route. It’s this sort of giant box full of my reactions to a lot of stuff I was encountering in SP fic and art when I first got here, and it’s from four different POVs (Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Butters), and there’s like, a holy war, sort of, and amnesia magic, and Craig leading Tweek around a sex club on a leash, even though Tweek is married to Wendy! There’s an alternate timeline and a huge multi-generational epilogue, and Stan even bottoms to Kyle at one point!!! There’s a lot going on, but it’s basically a Stan/Kyle love story with Cartman/Butters and Kenny/Wendy side love stories, and a bunch of little nods to fandom traditions and themes.

That Was Now and This is Then - This was supposed to be my hilarious Token/Clyde/Craig/Tweek orgy fic for the kink meme, but then it turned pretty dark mid-orgy and I decided to write a big Token/Clyde sequel featuring Fat Craig and some other couples on the side. For a while I’d given up on it, but I checked it out again recently and decided to finish it, so there will be two more chapters and an epilogue.

I also posted an old Trek fic (everyone thinks Chekov is dead, Kirk and Sulu begin a relationship some time later, then Chekov reappears) and a couple of Lost ones, and I think my archive is basically complete now, aside from some scattered porn and old stuff in very obscure fandoms.

-Yeah, I would! I’d have to do some research, though - the last time I went to a club it was over ten years ago in a very small town in southern Georgia. One of the first m/m fics I ever read was a Zell/Squall fic where they were both vampires and grinding on each other at a fetish club, lol, so I am sentimental about the genre, and it could be a really fun Stan/Kyle situation to write about - thanks for the prompt! I’ll think more about how I would do it …
-Dawww, thanks for telling me :3
