Taking a little bit of a break

I'm declaring a hiatus from this network for the next...however long. Definitely until after the fourth, which is going to be Hell at any rate. Anybody on here who needs me can text, email, skype me at Courfeyracoon, or call me and I'll be around but everything's too much right now and I need to be alone with me, and possibly Jehan, Marius, Bahorel, and Enj right now.

I'll catch up with you guys once things have settled down for me, but I have a LOT of stuff I need to be alone with for a while.

How many people out there really play this Candy Crush game? I mean it seems like every place I look there is someone playing it... Though I have to admit I have been playing myself. It started out as a challenge between the dance girls to see who could get the farthest and I still find myself playing more than I care to admit. Not so much now that I have beat all the levels available in the app.

Yeah, I need to find something else to do with my time. I do have a few new photo shoots coming up thankfully.

I've heard this is the place to introduce ourselves, so here goes. I'm Ariadne Cooper, new architect at Stark Industries. I just moved to California from Paris, so needless to say this is kind of culture shock.

It's nice to meet you all though! Er, so to speak.

Well. That was an unexpected medical detour. TW: Mental health facility mentions )

At this point, it's a matter of sorting out the triggers, finding ways to get myself out of these states, and figuring out things with my own doctor now. I'm sorry if I scared people on the anniversary of my death in the dreams, and ruined the party, but..I'm back now?

Apparently something is going on again here. I confess I do not care.

I am going to lie in bed all day with my bottle of water, and wish for death. If anyone disturbs me for any reason, except possibly a fire in the building, I shall strap you down and sing high E for as long as I can, directly into your eardrums.

I hope I have made myself clear.

Um. Happy death day, guys, I guess. If that's a thing. Now it's a thing. ...Anyway, I'm glad I still have you, mes amis, and you two especially, mon aigle and ma 'Chetta.

Enfin. Tonight is the night. My debut in opera. I'm excited that it's in my mother tongue, as well - Micaëla is a brilliant part, and Carmen is a truly fantastic opera. I am thrilled, but also absolutely full to the brim with fear! Shall I disgrace myself and country by ruining "Je dis que rien ne m'epouvante"? Or shall I soar above the footlights?

Mes gentilhommes Joly and Aigle, Courfeyrac, Enjolras, anyone of our Amis, I hope some of you will attend, though the dress for an evening at the opera has sadly declined since the 1830s. In the simplest sense, I would be grateful.

Mademoiselle Lecter, I have left tickets for you and your papa at the will-call; I hope with my whole heart that the company and I do not disappoint!

People here are just so kind! It's wonderful to see us all support each other, when we're going through times of trouble. I knew I had the support and care of my friends, but to have perfect strangers contact me to say they know what I'm going through, and they're here to help? Well that's just wonderful.

So thank you, Valarnet. For being wonderful people.

I find it somewhat pathetic and horrifying that I need to state these rules for visiting our home, but unless you happen to be Combeferre, and only Combeferre, because he has more than the sense God gave a mosquito, I would like to set a few guidelines out regarding other people's animals and visits.

I've joined the ranks, I suppose.

The first dream was lovely, and so full of hope. And I knew these would be coming after but I didn't quite want to believe it.

But now they have and it wasn't lovely at all. So full of pain, and blood, and death.

I know there's more to come later because my friends all survived in my dream. It ended with us sitting there, waiting out the night. Trying to see what will come with the morning.

If it gets worse, I don't know that I can bear it.

So. Today, during fencing, things got hard again. I felt like, well, like a friend has described it, the sensation of being somewhere entirely else, with someone entirely else. It was not incredibly different, really. The equipment is more secure now, but beyond that, I could have sworn that I was back in a completely differentsalle, and not here, and now. Read more... )

Forgiveness is the mightiest sword


[info]solo_patria
[info]valarnet
A topic for discussion, and something that I'm posting about on my blog when my own thoughts about it are a bit more settled. Until I whip this out at my typical audience, I'd like to talk about it here, with people who I think understand a bit more of the specifics of my situation. So. Valarnet. Forgiveness.

Particularly when you have to direct that forgiveness toward yourself, for some of the things you've done in your dreams. I was particularly cruel to a valued friend there, and I regret the sharp words I've turned on him, and the way I let some of that spill over into this world. I've since apologized to him, and sent a note asking about reparations, explaining my feelings on this, and on another action that I took, due to the dreams, the one I asked about a few weeks ago, and I am fairly sure that he will forgive me. He's a friend, and one of my brothers, and we care for each other as brothers would, I am fairly sure.

The trouble comes then, in forgiving myself, mostly for the way that I behaved towards him in that past life. I cannot forgive myself for other mistakes I have made as well, in regard to those things I mentioned before that hurt and dishonored my friends, but I am working on that slowly. The issue of forgiving myself for something that I remember doing, that *I* did not actually do in this life instead of in the one I left behind me is confusing.

How DO I find that path to forgiving myself when I did nothing consciously wrong and apologies have been issued. Is there some way to find acceptance of my mistakes and to feel better about my chances of not making them in future? Has anyone here had to face similar? Perhaps we could discuss this?

The moon is bright, the air is lovely, and I'm hardly making any noise. Well perhaps a little light singing here and there, but not at full volume, anyway.

I dreamed I was at the barricade. I was making cartridges with Feuilly. I am not sure who decided it was an okay idea for me to do that. But somehow I managed not to injure myself or Feuilly while undertaking that task.

I told him I thought we'd be taking a diligence to another plant soon. Meaning it was near the end for us all. I am not sure how to feel about that.

It does take severe shock to wake you up from some things, doesn't it? I've spent the last couple of days in 1832 land again, and I can't say that I minded it. I find that I think clearer when I'm in that mindset, that I write better, that I am closer to who I am supposed to be. I get that it is hardly good for me to be in the mindset of my last life all the time and badly affects some processes, but in others, it is weirdly...comforting, I guess is the right way to put it. I have such a hard time feeling safe or secure as I am right now. I think that knowing who I was and what I could do then have been a big help in making me feel that way when right now, today, I have no clue what I'm doing. tldr, no cut for characters )

In other news, I missed the internship I had applied for, largely due to distance and relocation issues, according to the letter, but I suspect to better candidates if we're going to be honest about it. There were a lot of us. I can't feel bad. I'm disappointed but it was sort of a snowball's chance anyway, and besides that, a sister organization will be opening up on this coast in the next few months, and they'll be taking hires. My info has been passed along, and I've sent out a resume, and several of my pieces to be looked over, and considered. It's not the DC branch, by any means, but it is still a chance to tell the truth and to let others see it, and to help in my own way. We'll see if that goes through or not, but here's to hoping for it anyway.

Hope seems so strange as a concept just right now, doesn't it?

Dear Valarnet,

Those of you who have expressed concern over my condition in the past week are likely to require updates on the condition of my mind and the state of my lodgings. Combeferre has come to stay with me and by that act alone, things have improved. He did suggest, and I agreed, that removing my barricade was best for the moment, and I have been given space again that I did not think I had.

Instead, we have begun construction on a better place for Danton to spend the days I am at home with him, and have been placing replicas of familiar monuments as a part of his obstacle course that he might chew on or eat or roll in or whatever else it is he'd enjoy doing there. I lose my battles with reality less often now as well, as I prepare to face this world, and the challenges it throws to us. I've let the past four months slow me down and while our society of friends has done the work it always does, there is much more that CAN be done, particularly as we reach toward the summer months.

So...(TLDR stuff but an invite to a meeting) )

In short, I am not fine, but I am getting better and will be entertaining other options for how to murder one of your best friends that preferably aren't suspicious? I'd be grateful.

-A. Enjolras

If your friend told you that another friend was disassociating pretty heavily, like to the point where you your friend had to jump into their face and slap them until they remembered where they were and what was going on, and they suspected this has happened more than once...

What would you do about it, Valarnet? What kind of help would you suggest they get? Does anybody here know anybody who works with stuff like that? I'd appreciate info I could maybe pass on?

The suits and ties I could live with. The pink tutu was just... wrong. But the glow-in-the-dark thong with a feather boa? Really? Do I look like I'm 15 again? I I wasn't reading about things like this happening all over the OC, I would've sworn this was some kind of practical joke that James was playing on me.

Thankfully, so far I've missed out on the clothes falling off in public thing. And whenever someone's clothes have fallen off, noooooo... it's never the attractive blonde, or even the sexy guy with the cut abs. It's the little old lady with more wrinkles than a prune, or the guy who's spent way too much time stuffing his face with junk food.

2) Fungal infections are terrifyingly gross.
3) The internet is convinced I'm dying.

What in the HELL?

Somehow, in between getting to class and meeting Courf for lunch, I have somehow managed to become dressed in a full on ensemble that appears to date to the Terror. Admittedly, I have very little problems with the advent of the Terror at first, so I don't exactly mind that my sweater's become a very battered, but entirely awesome waistcoat, I have on striped ankle trousers, amazing boots, a battered tricorn hat with a rosette and a red sash at my waist. And they're filthy and my shirt went from tshirt to big billowy white one with huge sleeves.

I look quite a bit like the Ernest duFarge from last spring's Tale of Two Cities of all things. I know my birthday is Bastille Day, but really? Really? This is new.

I...cannot say that this is bad, but it IS strange. Particularly as Courf attempted to swap hats with me, and it didn't work. It IS an interesting distraction, I will grant that. I suppose I am now supposed to storm Los Angeles and drag some of you to the guillotine now? Do we HAVE a working guillotine? I am slightly horrified to ask that and that I'm curious to know, but there we are, I guess?

At least it's hardly a hallucination, as I see from others here. I suppose I can enjoy it then.

While many people are celebrating Easter today, I'd like to take a moment to remind us of the other recognition deserved today. It's also Cesar Chavez day. Through the principles of non violent opposition, union, and education, Chavez worked to change our world for everyone, particularly workers, and left a legacy and example for us all. His impact upon this nation was great, and his examples of service to the community should be remembered and commemorated.

To this end, tomorrow, the day of observance for the holiday this year, and in the spirit of furthering education and making it available to all, a group from UCLA, and interested others, will be spending it at the East Los Angeles Library branch restoring, and repairing the library system's book mobiles, from 9:30-4:00. You're welcome to join us at any time, or call with questions here: (XXX-XXXX) .

If anybody knows what they're doing when it comes to mechanical work, we'd love to have you come by and lend a hand!

I wish to confront the scurrilous rumors by the newspapers and set the record straight.

My name is Jean Valjean, and I was an inmate in La Santé Prison for six years during my youth for petty robbery.

I served my time, and was released, moving to the United States for a fresh start. I am a free man, and while I regret the deception it seemed the best course at the time.

Your understanding and appreciation of my family's privacy is most welcome during this time.

I think that we can all say that last night went about as well as any of us who know better expected, and that I owe several people apologies for some of the things I said and did last night, and into this morning. I'll save those for when my head is not pounding with the force of a herd of... Courfeyrac, presumably you know what type of dinosaur pounds around in herds so I can use this metaphor properly? The force of a herd of something at any rate. Those apologies will be forthcoming when I can make myself properly ashamed enough to care.

At the moment though, I would really like to learn who is responsible for (Insert image file of his waistcoat here) this Thing being on my person when I woke. Just who in their right mind comes up with it. I do not intend to wear it. Ever.

I can't believe I just got done negotiating with the cops that if I tried to shut this party up, they'd go away. I guess the landlord called a couple times because the neighbors bitched and we didn't hear it?

NOW I get to quiet all the stragglers down, which, fuck, I didn't actually want to do, but somehow found myself agreeing anyway.

Tomorrow morning, after I drink a truck's worth of coffee, I'm turning in my adult card. Right now, I get to put my friends and some of THEIR friends to sleep.

Being responsible's a real pain in the ass.

The good news is, if my temperature stays at 102 now that they've got it down and if the test shows tht it's really trichinosis, they're letting me out of Irvine General with meds tomorrow. The bad news is that I shall never, never, return to another doctor, nurse, pharmacist, chiropractor, therapist, medical assistant, x-ray technician, or anyone associated with the practice of medicine for as long as I continue to draw breath. ((medical imagery triggers. I know I triggered MYSELF)) )

I think I screamed. I KNOW I screamed, and I don't even know WHAT the hell all I was screaming and apparently no one in the room knew either because they all sounded insanely confused, while they tried to finish up and stitch it and get me back to my lovely little observation curtained area where I proceeded to call my mom at work and sob at her for fifteen solid minutes, in a bid that's just set MY maturity back a good fifteen years or so.

Later, I am going to be even more humiliated than I am right now, but I have never, ever felt anything quite like that. And I never want to again. So doctors, sorry, I am DONE with you. It isn't you. It's me and all of my secret phobias coming out to play and it will make all our lives a living hell if I don't walk away.

Where did that come out of? Too much time with the French Revolution for a paper this weekend or what? I'm confused by all of this and that's after listening to Courfeyrac's renditions of stuff, which are actually decent, unlike mine. Sorry. I am sorry.

So seriously, network? I think we can all agree that the drama we just had sucks and anybody who'd believe, well, almost any of the Skeeter stories is probably insane. So, you know, this has totally been in my head for you guys, and well, Cosette's Dad, Cosette, guys, other people that I don't know who shit happened to and it completely sucks, I've got something to offer you:

So no one told you life was going to be this way.
Your job's a joke, you're broke, you're love life's DOA.
It's like you're always stuck in second gear,
Well, it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year.

But, I'll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.
I'll be there for you, like I've been there before.
I'll be there for you, cause you're there for me too.


So yeah, network. You guys have been a really BIG source of support and shit and I'll do the same if you want to talk or whatever else? Cosette's Dad, seriously, even if you have a secret past that's none of our business, I don't think any of us love you any less. I mean you took a bunch of crazy college kids, who are pretty weird and kinda obnoxious if you don't know us, into your house, let me have an Oscar party and just sort of went with it and were really really awesome. So uh, we still love you and you're still you and everything. And everybody else that got targeted? I pretty much love all of you too. This network is like a really weird dysfunctional family so, you know. If you want to talk or something...

Mmm, so I'm wondering if I fit the 'thug' description there or the 'political dissident.' At least one is accurate.

Clearly holding food drives is an intimidation tactic now. Who knows what evil men can wreak with canned goods? We could throw them through windows; like Santa with more property destruction. Soon she'll be calling us all dirty Commies. Maybe we should get monogrammed jackets, guys?

By the way, I am actually a clean socialist, so I give you all fair warning.

Sadly, the conclave has rejected my bid for office.

Pope Francis is giving his first blessing as I type this. I admit I haven't been following this as closely as I thought I would be, but it's exciting all the same. The first pope from the New World too. This is, I don't know. It's kind of awesome. I was AROUND the last time this happened, but I didn't care as much.

Now that I'm sort of getting back to my roots, a little bit, I kind of care a lot. This is one of those times when you really really hope your religion doesn't continue fucking things up because it's getting a fresh start. I'm not gonna say that it NEGATES any past screw ups the church as an organization has had but I'm still kind of hopeful that maybe we can start to put things right.

Okay, I confess that for a second there, while the crowd was waving the Argentinian flag, Don't Cry For Me, Argentina was flying through my head. I don't think ANYBODY couldn't have made that leap.

I...don't even know what I wanted to say here. Just that I'm kind of overwhelmed by all of this I guess?

And the whole pope thing has me feeling guilty about a lot of stuff I've done and haven't done the last few years. Is it better to tell people you lied to them about something that's unimportant, or just hope they never find out, especially when you don't really WANT for them to know the truth? I'll...be working on that I guess.

But...Pope. It's good. I hope!

Now taking bets on the duel between Enjolras and Courfeyrac. Odds are two to one, favoring Enjolras. Because let's face it, that other kid is kinda twitchy looking.

I...seem to have accepted an invitation to duel with Courfeyrac. Why have I accepted an invitation to duel with Courfeyrac? Is dueling still illegal? Why am I about to do this while I still feel vaguely shitty? What in hell has my life BECOME exactly?

...I remain...confused.

Glitter really is the herpes of the craft world. I think I have some in my hair, I'm not even sure how it got there. I'll be glad when Easter's over, it means we can get rid of all the stupid glittery eggs and baskets and bunnies.

...What a way to introduce myself. Anyway, hi. I'm Laurent. Or Feuilly, if you want. I work at Michael's. It sucks, but it's a job, I guess.

Today is a good day!

I got a large tip at work simply for my "pretty face."

I got my access to this lovely network, and I love meeting new people.

And I am officially Micaëla in the department's production of Carmen!
