Learn what you can change; work to change it for the better.
Learn not to let what you can’t change destroy you; work to influence it in small ways that build up over time until you can change it.
Learn patience with the world.
Learn who you love; work to show them you love them.
Learn who loves you; work to show them you appreciate their love.
Learn patience with yourself.
Work to clear a space for yourself where you can spend some time not working.
The woods were eerily quiet.
Wind rustled the leaves.
There was no buzz of insects nor a bark, chirp or growl of ANY creatures.
Somewhere water trickled.
Despite the trees, it felt so empty.
"Keep walking," urged the guide in a stern whisper.
Despite the emptiness, sharp eyes followed them.

concept: Poison Ivy, but written to reflect most of the women in STEM i actually know, not somebody's sexy fantasy
because she isn't a conventionally pretty sexpot, she hides in plain sight to basically everyone - batman included - for a good long while. ('cause that mousy-dressing woman with the glasses is, like, the secretary, right? not important.)
she still makes her own costume out of plants. with pitcher plants.
"nice costume," says batgirl
"thanks, it has pockets!!!" she replies
i mean just ponder Poison Ivy, but with her hair up in a practical bun, sensible boots on (absolutely NO high heels or open-toed shoes are ALLOWED because of BASIC LAB SAFETY), who has made her plant costume into a sensible two-piece with pitcher plants at her hips that she can shove her hands into happily because pockets!!!
(batgirl is low-key jealous. it looks so comfortable! nicely loose! and POCKETS!)
of course that's in my "make me director, DC" dream movie where no major male characters show up
minor characters, maybe. maybe voice on the telephone. but faces on that screen lol
as harley quinn and poison ivy, after their marriage, declare they're going to really go straight this time and then end up falling into "crime" once more, mentored by catwoman, in the art of "these things are technically illegal, but morally right, so what's batman gonna do about it huh"
So this morning’s project is getting my old Pixel phone out of a boot loop
@Canageek is helping but I’m still feeling panicky

Hi everyone--we've had a big influx of spammers and trolls lately, so far all on other servers. Please report them when you see them, and make liberal use of the block button.
This current wave is pretty obvious trolling with blatantly racist content. I encourage folks to report the account and not respond. We will suspend these assholes as the reports come in.
"Can... Um. I'd like to borrow this, please."
The librarian looked at the sword, and the girl holding it.
"That's strictly for secondary world use."
"I... Yes. Um. I know."
"Good. Will you need fencing manuals, or will a master train you?"
"I don't... Books, please?"
