Anybody know of a good resource for worldbuilding questions that is aimed more at science fiction/modern setting worlds rather than fantasy/historical settings?

ETA: Specifically superheroic/comic book-style universe building would be most excellently appropriate.

Walking up the paths on the eastern shore of the Humber River in full spring flood at night, from Magwood Park up to Home Smith and the great bridge that takes Dundas Street West over, you can get a sense of the immensity of the natural world. Even in a carefully maintained Toronto, nature retains its force.

Italy tips?

So, we have five days to drive up from Rome to Verona. Where should we stop more or less along the way?

It's not that we don't have ideas, it's more the feeling that you have in the morning, standing in front of the full wardrobe and still feeling like you have nothing to wear because the choices are too many.

We especially appreciate both insider's tips and and the obvious places that are as great as everyone says (and if you really thought something was oversold, say so, too). History is great but more in terms of really impressive buildings than in terms of long tours and reading up on this or that pope (we'll do enough of that in Rome). Beautiful landscapes and great hikes, especially great short hikes, are love. My favorite landscapes are the ones where stone meets water (think gorges or coasts), but seriously: any great landscape that we should not miss.

In short: just shoot and give whichever tips you want, we'll sort through them :)

Anyway, and now for the weather

The weather is cool again. It's not exactly hot and it's not exactly cold, so I guess that's just a long-winded way of saying "it's warm, but not uncomfortably so".

As far as starting seasons go, this has to be the most indecisive May I've ever experienced in my 20+ years on this Earth. I'm expecting the weather to be worse than it usually is come June or July, but maybe the weather patterns will surprise me and give me a chill summer.

I totally understand all the comments about the colonists being stupid now. Also, this movie tried very hard to make sense, yet somehowwas unsuccessful in that and/or tying itself into franchise. I'd rather have thw movie that was hinted as a sequel to Promethius, than this shit.

To be clear: in my reality the Alien franchise ended with Alien 2: The Aliens.

why would a candle thats already lit want to be with a match

also her being lit is going to eventually melt her and reduce her to nothing
match guy is an abusive sadboy who thinks he’s the victim when candlegirl just wants someone who will keep her alive

im here for this analysis

Guys, this whole thing is misogynistic trash. Stop trying to make sense of it because it might as well say, loser is ice cream, girl is a microwave, badboy is a small ginger kitty. It doesn’t make any sense because girls aren’t fucking candles.

Vampire Cleanup Department sheer pleasure. Hong Kong comedy adventure about a young man who joins a special branch of the sanitation department. it's sentimental and charming, and the hopping vampires are at turns silly and scary. recommended.

I get why someone might like it, but I hated the idiot main character, and his Andy Warhol hallucinations couldn't make up for it.

Writing in the aftermath of the Manchester attack, The Guardian's Alexis Petridis writes about how his understanding of the pop music concert changed when he saw the impact that it had on his daughter. It points the young child to the possibility of an exciting adult future.

There was more to the magic than infectious enthusiasm. I have spent a not-insignificant proportion of my working life at pop gigs in arenas filled with kids and teenagers, usually in a state of mild bemusement. I have seen shows I thought were abysmal and shows I thought were impressively slick. I have seen artists treat their audience with something bordering on contempt (there is something incredibly galling about watching a singer who can’t even be bothered to pretend to mime) and artists who genuinely left me open-mouthed (Miley Cyrus, following her decision to abandon her squeaky-clean Disney image for something deliberately provocative). I could make an informed, objective critical judgment about them, but I never fully understood them, never really grasped what they were for, never really got what was going on in the audience, until I saw one through my daughter’s eyes.

It wasn’t just that she was overawed by the spectacle, although she was: stuff I took for granted – lasers, pyrotechnics, confetti cannons, all the usual bells and whistles of a big pop show – were a constant source of overwhelming sensory overload. Nor was it the way her lack of cynicism made me reconsider my own feelings, although that happened too. I have always been deeply suspicious of the kind of rhetoric that modern pop surrounds itself with: all that platitudinous “just be yourself”, “if you dream it you can do it” stuff. But my daughter took it all at face value and I ended up thinking: Well, there’s certainly worse messages you can send out to kids.

But mostly it was the way it gave her a first glimpse of a world that was previously outside her experience, a more adult, or at least more mature world than the one she knew, a world that would one day be her own, and how excited she was to see it, how – as she put it – grown-up it made her feel. She experienced something that transcended her pretty fickle and changeable musical allegiances. Jessie J has long been replaced in her affections – by, among others, Ariana Grande. The selfie she took that night is still on her bedroom wall. If that was true of a seven-year-old being chaperoned by her father, how much more true was it for the kids that were just old enough to be there without their parents, the ones who had relegated their mums and dads to waiting in the foyer or outside in the car?

gen durante-casi post partido
menciona a: walter erviti, ezequiel barco, martín campañam, emiliano rigoni, maximiliano meza, nicolás tagliafico, emanuel giglioti, fabricio bustos, alan franco, dt ariel holan.

Nadie va a creerle, pero Walter los puede sentir a todos. Puede diferenciar el olor de cada uno, el modo que tiene de encajar, puede catalogar como respira Ezequiel y escuchar la risa de Emiliano y de Maxi, siente la presión de Martín y la seguridad que emana Nicolás, escucha el rugido de la garganta de Emanuel y distingue el grito aún en la boca de Fabricio y Alan. No necesita nombrarlos a todos, pero puede sentirlos. Al rededor suyo. Arriba. Adentro. No siente la lluvia. Los siente a ellos. Y escucha a todos los que están afuera, porque están también acá adentro.

No quiere tener que levantarse jamás.

(Solo al comando de "vamos" del técnico reaccionan todos, pero hasta cuando lo dice Holan parece reacio a decirlo, como si él no quisese tampoco haber interrumpido.)

In case anyone has not seen this link: there is a blog this week doing a Big Gay Fiction Giveaway where you can get about 80 m/m books for the low, low price of completely free. I mean, you have to give them your email address and presumably they sign you up for a bunch of authors' newsletters, but there are some good things there, like KJ Charles' first Magpie book. I personally am looking forward to one that apparently has a rancher falling in love with a werehorse. Also there's one that appears to be gay Oliver Twist.

The Stony Trumps Hate auction is still going on. Sadly, even though I really, really wanted to win [personal profile] garrideb's vid auction, she's up to $90, which is more than I can afford, and since I have, like, eight possible ideas rather than one solid idea (seriously, I have a list of 616 vids in the order I would like to see them), I don't think I can get anyone to go in with me on this. I am sad. So I will try to win Amonae instead because I would really, really like someone to make me a comics vid. I just really want a comics vid so much.

Also I am trying very hard not to panic about this but I am the highest STH auction, as the people competing over me have devolved into two groups now: a Double Time sequel ([personal profile] magicasen) versus a Star Trek AU sequel ([personal profile] kiyaar). There is, uh, a lot of money at stake here. I think the Star Trek AU is losing, although honestly I really can't tell anymore.

I have no idea when I'm going to write this, whichever it is, as my fic writing output at this point is scheduled through at least September (or later, depending on how long Cap-IM BB runs for me), but it's going to be fun and I should probably try to stop screaming internally, right? Right.
