Leave a word, any word, in the comments below, and I will tell you a fact about myself relating to that word.

Widowmaker: we will be having none of that.
[11 Dec 2018|11:37am]

[ mood | pleased ]

On a pretty weak team, and we were completely (and quickly) overrun on point A. They were about to do the same on point B immediately after capture - their plan was a clear hard push through - but I wasn't having any of that.

(After this, we held up for a few minutes. Still lost, but made it more respectable.)

Pretty much just a rampage. Couple of us trapped half their team in the bay under the shuttle at Gibraltar, and it really didn't work out for them. (⌒▽⌒)

Mystery Heroes. Carding as Zarya. Got an ult off that was part of Orisa's Play of the Game and was when we took the second point, and I killed five (five) on the way in to the first point. (ノꐦಠヮಠ)ノ I have like 20 previous minutes on Zarya lifetime. What the fuck?(⌒▽⌒)

Widowmaker saves the day in Hollywood
[10 Dec 2018|11:00am]

[ mood | pleased ]

Came in late on this one - enemy team had both an Ashe and a Widowmaker and were steamrolling pretty hard, but I made life Difficult For Them, and we managed to hold. I five endorsements, including two Sportsmanlike, which I hope were enemy Ashe and enemy Widowmaker. (I do the same thing.)

[ mood | okay ]

An extraordinarily frustrating team. Notice the way D.va leaves me to deal with Winston all by myself after I killed a third of the enemy team? I did my best, though. All three enemy snipers (counting McCree, which I think is reasonable) had identified me as The Only Actual Problem, but I still managed to get the jump on 'em a few times.

The Arc of Ascension (Visual Style)
[09 Dec 2018|07:11pm]

[ mood | amused ]

Some months ago - in The Arc of Ascension, Fragment e12,1: It's Just Too Useful To Avoid - Lena found out something about her genetic makeup. Voidsarcade thought this needed to be illustrated, and did so. We are delighted, and fully agree.

The Arc of Ascension (Visual Style)

The original is hosted on imgur, but you should go look at more of voidarcade's work on tumblr or as ccauchemar on AO3.

Of Gods and Monsters: The Arc of Ascension is a continuance of Of Gods and Monsters: The Arc of Creation, a side-step sequel to The Armourer and the Living Weapon. It will be told in a series of eddas, sagas, interludes, fragments, texts, and cantos, all of which serve their individual purposes. To follow it as it appears, please subscribe to the series.

new guy at the gym counter
[08 Dec 2018|03:53pm]

[ mood | amused ]

omg dying

so there's a new guy at the gym counter, right? and i checked in (and was wearing this big baggy coat) and he was all

"Gonna work on those biceps?"

and he was joking, because of course not, right? apparently. But i was

"...yes? I... always do?"

and he was "...really?"

and i said "yeah, i have a/b workouts, it's part of my routine - see?" and hand him my clipboard. and he takes the clipboard and says nervously

"i'm a little afraid to look at it, your weights might be better than me" still trying to joke

and the he looks at it and is all

"...uh"

"...have a good workout..." and hands it back.

and then when i went back to put the clipboard away after my workout i kinda wanted to go

"WELCOME" <flex> "to the GUN SHOW."

but he kind of fled from me and hid out at the far end of the counter when I went to put it away so I couldn't. anna was disappoint. (⌒▽⌒)

(i am still giggling)

widowmaker enjoys rialto
[08 Dec 2018|11:35am]


I really like playing at Rialto. I'm not very effective to the first checkpoint - the team just wasn't in sync yet, I think - but after that, we come together quite well. There's a point - in the highlight I posted - where I take out both healers, including ulting Mercy, and I quite liked that.

i feel like i'm getting a handle on brigitte
[08 Dec 2018|10:56am]


I'm still dying too much - way too much really, I'm too aggro and she's not that kind of tank - but this felt really good, and felt like I had the right kind of rhythm with her. Particularly keeping a push going when a lot of our team died and had to come back from spawn. I'm also really pleased with bonking Roadhog into the graviton surge when after he'd dodged it.

Tracer: No Mercy

I liked this follow when Mercy tried to bolt out of range. It didn't work. ^_^

Widowmaker: no, thou shalt not.
[08 Dec 2018|10:45am]


One of four good kills in quick succession, though only three are in the clip. I was reasonably effective earlier in the game, but we didn't have the rhythm of the team yet, yeh? Right about here, we really started falling together and it all started working.

cartridge computing fucking rules

</p>yeah i said it</p>

not sure why i said it but i did

 

i decided upon a 'testbed' cartridge instead of 'utilities' because lol what utilities are tiny, but i actually do have a use for a testbed OS cartridge to test newer versions of ubuntu against studio software, particularly new LTS releases, and also 64 bit, because yeah I'm on 32-bit still because of concerns about plugins. but with a separate cartridge (hard drive and booting system) then i can try them without fear.

THIS ACTUALLY SOLVES A PROBLEM

and i hate that

it's so stupid

(if you're just catching up, i'm using an external eSata harness to have a cartridge-slot-like multi-boot system with different SSD hard drives, which, I realised, are basically cartridges like from the old Sega Genesis and before. so i'm running with it because that's the kind of shit i do.)

(the extra storage carts are for power-users with multi-cartridge-slot systems OBVIOUSLY)

only one more weight under 100lbs
[07 Dec 2018|05:02pm]

[ mood | pleased ]

I'm down to one weight under 100lbs combined. I say 'combined' because some machines are left-right weight independent, like chest press, which is 50lbs per arm, total 100. This forces even development, which is important since I really tend to favour my left side.

The last one - overhead press - will be that way for a long time. I've just made my numbers at 65lbs, and... yeah. It'll be a while, if ever, before that's triple digits. (⌒▽⌒)

I did move another couple of leg exercises (hip abduction/adduction) up to 200lbs each, though. That's nice.

Next goal is to get to the top weight slab on the ab crunch machine. That won't top it out - there's a little dial to add an addition 5 or 10 pounds on top of that. But it's always nice to be dropping the weight rod alllll the way down.

I'll never be a Zarya, but maybe I could be a Brigitte. I play her way better anyway. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ ♥
