Molly? I did a thing. I set a boundary and even though part of me tried to soften it to play nice (when the other person wasn’t at all), I didn’t give in to that voice. I stood up for myself & respected what I needed more than what someone else does.
That it a totally awesome thing. I’m super proud of you because I know how hard that can be.
It occurred to me today that The Lord of the Rings is an epic AU of The Three Little Pigs.
Zoe and Wash, while deeply forever ridiculously in love, are not drift compatible.
Zoe and Mal are drift compatible.
Kaylee and Wash are drift compatible, and they have the best piloted, sweetest running jaeger ever been seen in the ‘verse - the best piloted, sweetest running jaeger ever to run away from a kaiju.
(also, the sudden thought of River Tam in a jaeger is rutting terrifying)
She hung from the ceiling, a perfect, motionless sculpture of a girl in the process of becoming a fruitbat. Simon glanced up at her periodically, both checking that she was still present, and reassuring himself that the grind of the machines overhead would keep her from hearing what he had to say. It wasn’t that he was keeping secrets from her; River knew everything about her condition, sometimes more than he did. It was that she didn’t like being talked about, and he respected that.
"They weren’t trying to unlock psychic powers or anything like that, no matter what the rumors say," he said, his voice shaking slightly. Kaylee shifted her weight from foot to foot, disturbed by that tremor in his words. Simon Tam was the best K-scientist she’d ever worked with. For him to sound scared…
"Those people, those monsters…" Simon paused to take a deep breath, relaxing a little at the taste of oil on his tongue. Enough time spent with Kaylee had turned grime into perfume. "They were trying to set up a neural bridge inside a single mind. They wanted to do away with the need for drift compatibility, and privatize the Pilots. Imagine being able to market Jaegers for domestic and commercial use, because you only needed one Pilot, and that Pilot was so doped and dependent that they could never leave you."
"That’s horrific," whispered Kaylee. "They…they messed up her brain tryin’ to do something as can’t be done?"
"Oh, it can be done," said Simon grimly. "They succeeded.
"My sister is in constant Drift with herself."
YOU GET ME THE BEST PRESENTS <333
I hate that moment between “I will write fic to amuse a person” and that person responding because WHAT IF I WROTE IT WRONG.
I am going to go take a shower and then I am going to put on clothes and then I am going to leave my house and go do things. THIIIIINNNNGGGGSSSSS!!!!
Announced today at Comic-Con: All of the original Firefly stars will reprise their characters for the online game! And Alan Tudyk is playing multiple roles. Also showing up will be Michael Fairman as the crime lord Niska, who is apparently hiring.
Thanks! And you too.
Moira is from The Girl Downstairs and then Jax shows up in The Woman Uptown.
The two people who make me happiest in the world are my husband and my son. And they don’t even have to do anything. Just being with them is amazing. Seeing my son achieve something? Watching him develop a sense of humor? Him telling jokes he’s made up and then laughing hysterically even though they aren’t funny? It’s amazing. And when he falls and his knee gets hurt and he says that he needs momma cuddles to make it all better? It makes you feel like a magician that your hug and kiss can make things all better. My son’s laugh is my favorite sound, and I would be incomplete without him in my life.

Benedict Cumberbatch is interviewed on SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio channel from Comic-Con 2014 on July 24.
The first version of it was much more upsetting. You can have a Jax in your life. Just because he’s not there now doesn’t mean he won’t be there soon.
