I’m just about finished with the first part of my epic Kira/Damar fic, which is just about 30 pages now. The question is do I stick to my new rule not to post anything until the entire thing is completed so I don’t wind up going all over the place as I do individual chapters…. or do I just say fuck it and post this.
Don’t open that! It’s an alien planet!
Wait, I’m confused. Do people actually do that? Update more slowly if they don’t like the return they got on the last chapter? Is this actually a thing? That’s like a whole other level of childish bullshit, I was not aware that actually happened. Or at least not often enough that it would make it to a meme.
Your notes on that post are almost entirely from people outraged that you abused your pets for meaningless internet notoriety. Feeling accomplished for getting notes off that is sort of like stealing a soccer trophy from a ten year old and looking at it fondly as you pat yourself on the back for the achievement. I don’t have to tell you it means nothing, you know it means nothing. And the fact that you feel the need to come to my blog and make a show of gloating about it says a lot more about what you need to prove to yourself than what you think you’re proving to me.
Again, you’re a disgusting, careless, ignorant and now you can add incredibly pathetic individual. No amount of notes on a tumblr post can change that.
I keep toying with the idea of writing up a post about this topic, but then I’m like eh… anyway I’m just gonna do it.
This is the last scene in the series between Garak and Bashir. Now, ignoring any followup novels because that’s a whole different thing and I’m just talking about within the canon of the series, what Garak says and how he ends their conversation strikes me as the sort of thing someone might say when they’ve realized that what they’ve held on to for years is now gone, and is never coming back. It sounds like Garak intends to kill himself. I’ve watched this scene over and over, trying to see it some other way, but it never happens. That last moment before he says goodbye, right before Bashir puts a hand on his shoulder, that seems like the point where he realizes he has nothing left. And to follow it up with that calm, pleasant facade, it just seems so unquestionable to me.
I guess everyone has their own interpretation, when it comes down to it. I just can’t help seeing a man who has finally decided he’s done.
"I Can’t Find Your Fucking Next Page Arrows So Let Me Just Manually Type ‘/page/2’ You Dirtfuck" - A History of Tumblr Layouts
I know a couple layouts around here where the arrows and pagination don’t show up until you zoom out to 75%, but the font isn’t legible until you zoom in to 125%. WHAT EVEN.
What really kills me is that kind of layout that’s basically archive view, and if you try to click on an individual post to reblog it, you just get nothing or whatever image might be in it. Like it’s almost intended to keep you from reblogging from anything but the dashboard? I don’t know. One person I used to follow has that and it makes occasionally reblogging from her very difficult and annoying.
