20:What’s your favorite writing program?
Anything with words in it. Right now it’s Google Docs because the words don’t get lost as easily if something crashes. Yup.
44:What’s the weirdest character concept you’ve ever come up with?
Hmmmmm. In Mass Effect, elderly foulmouthed asari matriarch who teams up with her turian granddaughter to fight crime. Never did get that one finished.
49:If you could write a collaboration with another author, who would it be and what would you write about?
Aw, I dunno! There are a lot of talented ficcers I’d love to write with someday—RvB-wise, punishandenslavesuckers, thought-, and themumblybee come to mind—but I have no idea how that sort of thing works logistically.
And rosa-acicularis. Dude. Someday, when our fandoms overlap more firmly again, it’s gonna happen.
Dude! I get so excited every time I see you’ve posted fic, and then I have that heartbreaking moment when I’m like, I know absolutely nothing about that fandom. Can I read it anyway?
One day, dude. One day we will be in the same fandom again, and it will be glorious.
Okay, I have to admit. Even though John Hurt was FANTASTIC, Harrison Ford would’ve been quite the performer. A lot of these would have been equally on par with the British run.
The only problem is, had it been an American TV series, it’s unlikely that the regeneration process would have been instigated. William Hartnell’s condition is what prompted the BBC to examine how to gracefully replace him should he become too ill to keep recording. Regeneration was a cheap trick to replace the main character without upsetting the audience. A happy accident is what came of it, and that’s what’s allowed the show to run with itself for so long. Otherwise, it might’ve been cut from programming and eventually rebooted from the very beginning in a more modern setting, like we often do.
Still cool to think about it though.

"cool lol" tHEYRE ACTUALLY TESTING TO FIND OUT IF WE’RE LIVING INSIDE A COMPUTER SIMULATION AND YOUR RESPONSE TO THAT IS
They’ve done the tests, and have evidence that our universe may actually be a simulation: http://www.nature.com/news/simulations-back-up-theory-that-universe-is-a-hologram-1.14328
It’s less that we may be living within a computer simulation, but more like the foundations of our universe ( the laws of physics) are written on a lower dimensional plane, and the observable universe that we see is a projection (simulation) up onto a higher dimension.
are you telling me that
we’re in someones fucking sims game
You know there was a whole trilogy of five books on this topic.
trilogy of five books?
Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, I believe.

- Anonymous said:(1/2)Okay, so this is crazy of me, because I know you're hardly a counselor, but I need some sort of advice. I'm black, and I RP comics with friends. Recently, I asked a friend why she was casting a character that is canonically hispanic with someone that is not. This actress is technically a quarter black, but, despite what looks like a hearty tan, has never been cast as (and likely wouldn't be considered) anything other that white. It turned into a huge issue.
