Between: 16.5

Shower thought:

…fuck, I forgot what it was.


When I find myself in times of trouble
Skitter Hebert comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom:
Let’s use bees.
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom:
Let’s use bees.

Let’s use bees, let’s use bees,
Let’s use bees, let’s use bees.
Buzzing words of wisdom:
Let’s use bees.

And when the brokenhearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be a solution:
Let’s use bees.
For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be a solution:
Let’s use bees.

Let’s use bees, let’s use bees,
Let’s use bees, let’s use bees.
Yeah, there will be a solution:
Let’s use bees.

Let’s use bees, let’s use bees,
Let’s use bees, let’s use bees.
Buzzing words of wisdom:
Let’s use bees.

[Solo on a spiderweb-stringed guitar]

Let’s use bees, let’s use bees,
Let’s use bees, let’s use bees.
Buzzing words of wisdom:
Let’s use bees.

And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on ’til tomorrow,
Let’s use bees.
I wake up to the sound of music
Skitter Hebert comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom:
Let’s use bees.

Let’s use bees, let’s use bees,
Let’s use bees, let’s use bees.
Yeah, there will be a solution:
Let’s use bees.

Let’s use bees, let’s use bees,
Let’s use bees, let’s use bees.
Buzzing words of wisdom:
Let’s use bees.


I got through the entire process of making the above silliness before considering how appropriate it is to adapt a song by the Beatles to a girl who can control beetles (among other things).

Only way it’d be more fitting, I suppose, is if I’d made it about Atlas.


I remembered the shower thought!

It’s very much a possibility that Dragon, irritated at missing her chance to talk to Skitter because of Tattletale’s shenanigans, might use her knowledge of Taylor’s civilian identity and/or her access to Taylor’s satellite phone to contact her during the date.

But as I thought more about that after remembering it, it occurred to me that Dragon is not the most likely character to show up and sour the date for Taylor.

Emma Barnes is.

CawCawMarmalade:
One issue when playing DnD theatre of the mind style is that if you’re not familiar with length measurements in feet, your brain keeps substituting “meter” for “foot”. That’s why I’m homebrewing the length of a foot to be half a meter in my setting

microMustelid:
we once did “1 foot is now 1 meter” in our game
kinda fucky x3

Name Avalanche of Throwbacks [me]:
I’ve run into issues with feet and meters in my liveblog too
Something was described as being 30 feet tall
I converted that to 10 meters to help with visualization
And ended up misremembering it as 10 feet

POSSIBLY NEPETA:
I know what that 30 feet tall thing was

Name Avalanche of Throwbacks:
Yeah, and then you know just how much of a difference that error makes
Especially when a similar thing shows up later and is 45 feet tall while I still remember the first one as only 10

POSSIBLY NEPETA:
how far were you again

Name Avalanche of Throwbacks:
16.5 now

[At this point, I stepped away from the conversation to continue working, and didn’t see the rest until several hours later.]

POSSIBLY NEPETA:
*mental calculations*
Okay then

DDDragoni:
Is that 16.5 feet or meters?

CawCawMarmalade:
16.5 cubit

POSSIBLY NEPETA:
Arc 16 chapter 5

DDDragoni:
How does that convert to meters

Tasty Salamanders:
Well if 5 acts converts to 1 yard you can use that as the base of your conversion calculations.

[5 acts to 1 yard is a Homestuck thing. Although I’d go with 3 intermissions to 1 yard.]

ButterFate:
yeah but we’re trying to convert arcs, not acts
so the first thing you’d need to ask yourself is: what’s your angle?

Boss Frog:
also I want to promo this speedrun again


to quote myself:
a couple years ago, a twitch speedrunner going by Bonesaw577 was scheduled to play Jak and Daxter 100% at 2:00 AM a few days into SGDQ 2016
trouble was, he a) had to fly from japan on b) a flight that got delayed and jerked around for HOURS leaving him to arrive at GDQ c) only like eight hours before his run was supposed to start causing him to d) only snag like a two hour nap as the entirety of his sleep in the previous 36 and e) showing up for his run completely delirious
what ensued was the funniest fucking run in gdq history

Born With Skin [me]:
I haven’t started watching the video yet but like
One of my favorite Worm characters goes by Bonesaw and picturing her as a video game speedrunner is wild
Unless the game in question is Operation
