Can someone who understands fashion better than me tell me why male rompers are a thing? Or why anyone would want to wear one that looks like a pizza? Or a pineapple?

Today I had my first experience of someone rudely asking me if I was pregnant. I thought this was more a faux pas nowadays, but no, people apparently still do it.

The answer was yes, and may as well say it here too. I'm due in November and can eat again without throwing up so I guess it's obvious I've been going to town on, well, everything I can stuff into my mouth.

So you might think that pre-production comes first, before all that actual 'filming the movie' shit, but nah. First you gotta make sure you have enough money to actually make the movie, to pay the bills, and pull your ass out of what is lovingly called 'development hell.'

Well, I'm pretty familiar with hell. And ain't no movie of mine is gonna be sitting in it.

After many, many, many, many meetings - I'm pleased to announce that my new project's been given the green light. Now comes the task of finding a location, producing the shot list, script breakdowns, yada yada...

Oh, yeah, and casting. Can't talk too much about the roles specifically in public but any actors out there? I might be able to provide more info.

Best part about everything it's that while I usually work 18 hour days to avoid the dreams, I haven't had any more of those in awhile. Maybe they've stopped, and I really fucking hope so.

Percy is a Greek demigod. I know that here, but I only just discovered that in the dreams Apparently Juno might have swapped my one friend with my other friend. I hope Jason's okay. I wish I didn't miss him and Frank right now We sort of figured it out as part of Juno's general plan for us while we were flying to Anchorage.

Once we got there, we took a taxi. The Hyperboreans are amazing...even if one apparently tried to step on me once. I didn't remember it before, but I remember it now. Also this Alaska is a lot more similar to the one I knew, but it's kind of weird for my dream self to see how all of the little things about it have changed. Then again, it has been 70 years since I've seen it.

And we have to go

The only problem is now I have a super craving for blueberry pancakes.

If my dreams have taught me anything, aside from the fact that apparently I'll drive across the country for my ex-girlfriend's incredibly fucked-up baby shower in a town that I hate, is that I should apparently never be trusted to change a diaper. RIP, little doll baby.

So it'd seem this is where you can meet people? Kind of a lame dating service, if you ask me. Name's James Barnes, but I go by Bucky. Kind of new to the west coast, but I'm kinda digging the vibe here.

Some sects of our Magic Guild are looking a little sparse, since people have come and gone over the weeks and months. I thought I would put out another open call for recruitment. Potions are not my specialty, but I have been practicing more and more - however, we could use the help there and in most other areas.

Please let me know if you are interested. I'm Zatanna, by the way, in case we have not been formerly introduced.

Baby was born and shit got real. My old friend Hercules fought Hera and Zeus. He ended up killing his father, and from what I understand Hera was destroyed by Zeus, or at least neutralized. So I take my baby, Eve, and hatch a plan to fool them into thinking me, Gabrielle and Eve are killed. We swap the baby for a fake baby and my friend Octavius takes care of her while we do our plan.

Athena was already pissed at me because I beat her in a battle. We beat them again and the last thing I remember is drinking the tears of Celesta to fake my death in front of Ares.

Of all the things to wake up to Clyde was not what I was expecting. And as much as I'm sure he appreciates his little shell cover, I would've appreciated his vivarium.

I think my vegetable grocery bills just went up. But at least it's a little company.

Just when I think I'm done seeing myself be the villain in these damn things, I'm not. Done, that is.

Quick recap: my love interest is killed in front of me, again, and since people were expressing their concern towards me reverting back to my 'vengeful ways' I used a serum that split myself into two. I thought I could literally kill the evil part of me (spare me the philosophical conversations, I'm aware that it was an awful idea, thank you), but it turns out I can't and she's run rampant all over Storybrooke in her big, gothic outfits wanting the same old thing. Snow White's heart.

What could go wrong, hm? Plenty.

What's worse is I get to see things from both perspectives. I'm sucking faces and more, ugh with the cursed imp, and have enlisted my deranged sister against my regular self. Zelena's unsurprisingly two-faced and I'm at least glad I was able to tell her how I felt. I don't know why we ever thought things would be okay between us and we'd be 'family.'

Some EQ intel involves: Gold wanting to use those golden shears to alter his and Belle's fate - and for the currently unborn baby too - and, surprisingly, the Queen doesn't actually kill Snow White, and instead puts a sleeping curse that makes no sense on two hearts.

There's no rhyme or reason in this anymore. Just the mighty need to imbibe, but then I remember I have an infant to take care for.

Damn, so let me tell you about this year's Oscar goody bag. You know how when you were a kid (well, maybe not some of you - fuck, am I that old?) you went to classmates birthday parties and got goody bags at the end? Yeah, they do that for the Oscars too (by the way, Inferno's gonna sweep again - just saying my 'Best Director' trophy is coming soon).

Last year's swag bag was out of control.

Among other things, there was a breast lift, personalized M&M's, a 10-day trip to Israel, a 15-day walking tour of Japan, laser treatments, a vaporizer, and (kids, don't look), a vibrator. That sucker is worth $250, I mean, it was top of the line.

The Academy totally got on their asses for all that too, so this year it'll probably 'pale' in comparison. I'll keep you updated.

Who else has those moments in their dreams where they just want to grab themselves by the collar and shake themselves really, really hard? You'd think if I was going to obsess over someone, it would be someone I actually like.

This year's Golden Globes - it's on. In only a few days, and nerves are flying high. Inferno's up for a few (okay, not to toot my own horn but we're gonna sweep) and I have the scoop about the happening after-parties, so if you want to celebrate with yours truly and his very pretty barracuda of a date? Hit me up.

You'll also be disappointed to know that peanut butter and jelly are not actually True Loves. I tested them on my newfound True Love scale, courtesy of the Underworld, and the results weren't pretty. I might try peanut butter and chocolate next, since peanut butter has more sophisticated tastes, I think.

I think I just joined the group of people that got a dream horse. He showed up for my birthday yesterday, only now I can't really find him, which isn't all that surprising from what I've noticed in the dreams. Positive notes: he can run faster than the speed of sound, he's immortal, he's amazing, and he can run across water. Less positive notes: He likes to eat gold.

Lucky for me, I can summon it from the ground and he isn't above eating grass for the most part. I'm also told he has a foul mouth, but I can't talk to horses, so I don't know.

Woke up from what I guess is a coma and got home, and there was a car. Not just a car, but my red 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air Impala Sport Coupe - the one I drove in the Underworld, in dreamland. Sexy stuff, right?

Also an ambrosia tree now in the backyard. You know, food of the gods. Absorbs magic, you need to eat some of it to escape the Underworld, etc etc. I cut it down in dreamland but now it's back like that pesky neighbor always bringing by tuna casserole. Maybe I'll actually keep it around this time though - never know when you need a plant that soaks up magic like a sponge.

I guess the point of this is that don't fall into a coma if you can help it. Man, that sucked. At least it happened well before my movie premiere.

You know what? My dreams can go screw themselves. Dream!Tyler is now an orphan, I guess. I almost wish Klaus lived here just so I could rip him apart myself.

But I'm not an orphan here, so I guess the annual Lockwood masquerade party didn't stop after I went away to college. Because there's literally no other way I'd like to spend my Halloween than hanging around with a bunch of politicians and Dad's donors.

Though it wouldn't be so bad if you came with me. Want to be my date?

Okay, that was what? A two day break? One set of dreams ends, another begins. Not in the Underworld yet, but I just stabbed Kronos (hey dad - that'll probably cause issues later) with a crystal mega-weapon that looks like a dick. No, really, it does. The most phallic damn thing I've ever seen.

Anyway, point is - book your calendars for November 11th, because that's when my new flick, Inferno, appears in theaters. If I like you a lot, I'll even get you passes for the red carpet premiere which of course I'll be attending and looking very dapper at.

With a glamour on. Sigh.

Y'know, as much as dream me seems to love traveling with Hercules it really is tough being the best friend of a demigod and being just so..average sometimes.

...It's equally weird being irritated at someone who doesn't exist.

So I have a flashback/black out and then I wake up and find Frank and Percy myself on the land with my friends. They seemed pretty concerned about me. I guess I would have been if I'd have been me, too. So I had to tell them what happened. Frank guessed about me. About my coming from the Underworld. He didn't even look at me like I was some freak. He just looked at me like I was Hazel and told me he'd make sure I stayed alive. Dream me feels guilty about the things I did, but...I don't know how she can ever feel bad about Gaea. That wasn't my fault.

Anyway, then I got kidnapped by grass (Karpoi, to be specific). Well, they weren't really grass. Wheat, Barley, and Sorghum. Of course, I finally found schist, which is a precious stone. They offered to take me to Gaea's army so I could die slowly, but I turned them down. Even dizzy and sort of not entirely with it, I know better than to agree to be killed slowly. At least there's that. They offered me wheat if I came off the rock, but wheat's not that important. Apparently Gaea has a lot of torture in store for me since I ruined her plans, but like I told the Karpoi. I am a daughter of Pluto. They can surely try to kill me. You'd think she'd get over it already.

Thankfully my friends came and helped me fight them because I probably could have done it, but when you're already feeling woozy, trying to fight a bunch of toddler-sized karpoi in weird diaper-like things is kind of difficult. But then we saw her army. Gaea's. One of my friends wasn't feeling so well, so we decided we were going to go to this store we saw. After fighting a giant snake thing we got to the store which belonged to Iris, the goddess of rainbows and also the messenger goddess. Well, she directed Percy my friend and I to the back, but said she had to talk to Frank. I don't really know what to expect next.

I think it must be Weird Dream Pet week or something, and I missed the memo. Or maybe the OC is trolling me because when my hellhound passed the security checkpoint of this realm or whatever, he sort of got...downsized.

Behold, the terrifying Cerberus.

How did I end up with so many animals in my house, how. It's bad enough my evil imp henchmen are nothing more than a chipmunk and a bunny in their current form.

This is bullshit.

I have had too much free time on my hands this summer. I didn't realize med school took up so much of my time until I had sometime off. Maybe I should have taken summer classes.

Anyway, not the point. Anyone have any suggestions for how to spend the last few weeks of summer? I don't think I can handle anymore Netflix.

It has been some time since I posted of the Magic Guild which was formed about a year ago, but we are still going strong and I thought I would let the network at large know that assistance is available during this latest...adventure. I specialize in healing and divination, but the first is likely more useful now. We also have defense and offensive capabilities at our disposal.

There was a rift here before but it's closed now. But it's nice to see our odd dreaming community band together in times of crisis.

I didn't even have to go shopping to get this. )

I have a hard time believing this color was regularly worn in Ancient Greece, but then again the gods are real and a large centaur that calls himself the 'River Guardian' tried to have sex with me in this dream nonsense. Clothing hues are far from the strangest thing. Then there's, of course, Hercules - rippling muscles, brain the size of a rabbit's turd - and he comes to the rescue with his farm-boy routine. Greaaaat.

None of this is unfolding in a mythologically accurate way, but I've done my reading and I know he marries a Megara UUUUUGHHHHHHH and they make some babies before he loses his marbles and kills all of them. If that's my fate, I'm done. I'm becoming a nun.

So my fellow Princess and lifemate is totally the best because look what she got me:

cut for image, viewable to everyone )

Isn't he the most precious, ginormous baby?? His name's Link! He's a wolfdog hybrid, from a rescue up in Lake Tahoe. But he looks a lot like the Link in my dreamworld, who appeared as a divine beast meant to help save the Twili kingdom. I basically spent a lot of time riding him and hanging out in his shadow, in imp form, but he's a good kid.

I just wanted to show him off. Nothing new to report, but hey, congrats to all the college people who have finished their exams! Never bothered with the college thing but I'm pretty certified in Arabic now so I'll start volunteering at the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services. And to think this time last year I was still on the pole.

Which is actually good exercise, by the way. I've given pole dancing lessons before, highly recommend them.

Alright, remind me not to scroll back to more than a few weeks here - you just get lost in a cesspool of who knows what. Only thing I've managed to take from it is that I'm a little concerned my teenage kids are also on this forum and reading about your issues, your dick jokes, and your internet hook-ups.

So what is it, really? What's the percentage? Like 40% dream talk, 40% Plenty of Fish, and 20% Craigslist?

Name's Hades. Was mostly working and making movies in Europe for the past few years, then moved Stateside to direct a gem called Inferno. We're about to go into post-production, so I'll just take two seconds to be useful and say, hey, putting out the call for post-production jobs and internships. Hit me up if you're interested.

By the flaming grace of my employer and his unwanted opinion of how I need 'more friends,' I'm going to make some kind of attempt for an intro post. Prepare to be awed.

Hi. I'm Megara. Meg for short. I'm here to browse through the drama. It goes hand in hand with social media, so make sure to link me to the extra juicy scandals. Points for the infamous baby daddy/mama dramas and vindictive divorces.

Thanks, internet. You're so swell.
