I've had more dreams about this Rosewood town. But hey, at least this time I woke up in my own bed. Even if I did suddenly get an owl shaped flash drive from said dreams.

As of today, I'm no longer a teenager. I don't know how to feel about this other than I have mixed feelings on it. One more year and I can legally drink? That counts for something, I'd say. And yet there's also the ever looming question of what to do with my life and I still don't have an answer for that.

No sooner am I made Lord of the Sith, than Darth Thanaton of the Dark Council wants me dead because he sees my views as a threat. He very nearly succeeds by having a lacky lay a trap, except my people manage to get me out. In need of more power if I've a chance to survive, let alone make change in the Empire, I learn of a ritual that would make me strong enough to take this man on and defeat him. It's called "Force Walking" and involves communing with the ghosts of long dead Sith Lords, and in fact binding their restless ghosts to the living in order to harness their power.

This will surely go well.

In other news, I have my first apprentice! A Togruta padawan named Ashara Zavros. A former Jedi! How marvelous.

Things move fast for myself in my dreams now. The Cold War between the Republic and the Sith grows ... warmer, as we vie for proxy control over Aldaraan. Each choosing a House to back in the Civil War for succession. My task is, naturally to encourage them to chose House Rist instead of House Organa, while I searched for another Sith Artifact.

Next, I traveled to a rather non-descript planet called Tatooine. At first little more than sand, I discovered a secret weapon facility and infiltrated it of course. An ancient Rakata mind prison had turned all the workers into mindless drones. As with that Infinite Engine on Nar Shadaa, I chose to destroy it rather than risk allowing it being exploited. A device that enslaves the mind is a device I cannot allow to exist.

But after that, that is when everything got exciting, as I returned to my Sith Master with the last two relics for her quest. But not before I recovered my ancestor's lightsaber...

Predictably, she was using me and turned on me.

Darth Zash had discovered the secret to immortality, which required my body. I fought her, and my Dashade companion, the one she'd warned me against, stepped between us.

So now, my former master is trapped in the body of a monster, and forced to share his mind. And in a delicious turn of events, she is as bound by his oath of loyalty as he is. Earning that loyalty has paid dividends. As I've said many times, it is better to be loved, than feared.

And thus, I have come from slave, to student, to apprentice. And now I am Heir of Kallig, slayer of Zash, successor of Tulak Hord, and Lord of the Sith.

Welp, survey says: It's shrapnel. The kind that's so tiny it doesn't even show up on traditional scanning equipment. Fun times, fun times. My dream self is in the process of creating a battery alternative, because of course he's memorized old blueprints and is an engineering badass. We'll see how that goes. Maybe I'll get lucky and the dreams will send me a present.

Then I, too, can glow in the dark. Bonus: Easier for wireless charging!

Edit: I am not radioactive. The glow is part of the new battery thing. It isn't nuclear powered.

As always Future Industries is looking for girls and young women interested in engineering and sciences. We have a very good paid internship program as well as classes and our R&D department is second to none.

Yes, that includes you Mr. Stark.

Scientists have found a new moon orbiting Neptune, and it's name is pretty damn adorable. Hippocamp after a sea creature from Greek mythology.


It's so tiny even Hubble missed it. Graphs!

It could enable the discovery of other moons and 'exoplanets' outside the solar system - some of which could harbour life.


That would be so cool. By the by did Oppy ever get rescued?

Incredibly embarrassing waking life adventures aside, guess who didn't die from the radioactive spider.

Me. In case you wanted a hint.

I'm like super strong, agile, can climb walls and a retired superhero helped me out with a costume and some equipment so naturally I do what any senior in high school would do; take awesome videos of me being awesomely acrobatic and put it on Leaf.

Which is kind of like Vine in my dreams.

Only cooler.

Future Industries Press Release

After ten months, FI CEO Asami Sato has returned to Orange County. Ms. Sato left FI in capable hands in April 2018, and embarked upon a world tour. While abroad, Ms. Sato oversaw the breaking of ground in a new Girls in STEM center in Ontario, Canada, the start-up of a salt to fresh water plant in Mozambique, a satellite launch platform off the coast of California, and numerous other charitable and technological projects that Future Industries funds around the world. She even substituted for Future Industries' Formula 1 driver in the Monte Carlo Grand Prix last year.

In honor of her return, the Future Industries Race Course is once again open to the public and a special race is scheduled for February 28th! Prospective racers can compete in heats leading up to this race, where the top 10 will compete against Ms. Sato herself.

The top three racers will have $10,000 donated to the reputable charity of their choice. And if anyone is able to beat Ms. Sato, they'll a win 2019 FI Lightning electric sports car

End Press Release



Okay, now that that's out of the way, have I missed anything particularly earth shattering?

And I'm serious about that race and the fact that no one is going to win that car ;)

Since neither of us are in relationships and had anything else to do last night, Alex and I decided to do some baking and we got a little carried away. We have more cookies than either of us can eat. So, does anyone want some chocolate chip or sugar cookies? We have a tendency to do this.

Man, you haven't seen anything until you've seen the looks on everyone's faces when you come into work carrying a car battery that's attached to an electromagnet that's mysteriously strapped to your chest. "Mr. Stark, are you okay?" Yeah, sure, I'm fine. It's just a car battery and an electromagnet. Can we all just chillax already?

Also I look like I was just in a brawl with a broken glass window and someone's fists, which is interesting seeing as I actually did not do any partying last night.

I feel like I need to be on an episode of "When Dreams Attack". Also - dream me definitely had to be zapped back into existence, so do I get a jacket now?

Private to Pidge
So yeah, you were looking for proof, I woke up with your proof attached to my chest. Want to come in and see this sometime soon? I'll even let you touch it. Just not too much, because I've discovered that if I move it around too far it puts me into cardiac arrest.

I am still getting used to these devices, but it was recommended that I try to find new ways to socialise outside of school.

My name is Wanda, I am a student, I have recently been relocated to America in the last few years and meeting new people would be rather nice.

I may start adopting cats if I do not find something to do with myself.

So I'm pretty sure I won't be so lucky in the future with getting Old Lace in and out of our apartment when there's something to fight but I'll worry about that when I have to.

Man am I glad I got home in time for THIS. Stark Tower is fine, by the way. We're safe, the - whats its name Scourge?! - can't seem to climb up it, and the Dragons are circling but their frost breath isn't even a thing.

So you know. Come on over and in if you need a safe space. We're throwing a party on the first floor.

Also - Is no one going to talk about the dinosaur? SOMEONE has a dinosaur and it's out there kicking ass. Whoever you are, I want to meet the dinosaur.

HEY KID WHO THOUGHT WE WERE ALL CRAZY: Where are you at with this now? Figure you've been drinking too much of the water? Believing the hype about this being some kind of publicity stunt? Try not to lose your shit, it'll be okay.

A few warnings about the Scourge.

They can't be reasoned with. They also cannot turn you into one of them unless you're exposed to the plague, which typically must be ingested. So don't eat any suspicious looking grains.

The typical ghouls are much faster than zombies you see in movies, and watch out for geists, who like to climb walls and attack from above.

I'm more concerned about the giants, abominations and frost wyrms, personally.

They're being led by a man called the Lich King. He's incredibly powerful and dangerous, so if you see a man in blue armor with a glowing blue sword, run.

You risk your very soul if you stick around.

The plot thickens. I freed a Dashade, a powerful being immune to the force, and turned him to my side. This provided me some of the backing I needed to defeat the other acolytes.

Lord Zash took me on as her apprentice, gave me her old lightsaber, and tasked me with recovering ancient Sith artifacts of varying power and purposes.

My first mission took me to the capitol of the Empire, Dromund Kaas. I recovered the relic, freed some slaves, and discovered the most curious of cults. A group dedicated to studying a long dead person who was both Sith and Jedi. Light and Dark. A Jedi Master and Dark Lord who found some kind of balance between the two.

Revan is interesting, and in my dreams I claimed their mask for my own research.

These dreams are so intriguing. And alluring.

I found that lightsaber this morning, along with the slave collar I'd worn until I'd become an acolyte. I destroyed the latter.

So the school thinks I need to interact with people more for socialising or something and won't take my online gaming for that anymore so here I am. And I just have a couple questions after looking back through the past six months of posts on here: has the water been tested to make sure that nothing is being slipped into it to make everyone experience hallucinations? Has there been any sort of study undertaken to see if there's any long term damage to the human mind from whatever is causing everyone to believe they're dreaming of some other life or universe or whatever you want to call it?

Is your New Year's Eve boring? Of course it is, because you're not at my party.

Come on over to Stark Tower for food, fun, live music, and free cocktails! Or mocktails, if you like. We won't judge.

Seriously, we've got more food than I know what to do with and there's already a pretty good crowd here. No one wants to watch me cry into leftover pans of meatballs.

Orange County, I am in you. Feeling pretty holly and jolly here in California what with all that snow and everything. Nice of you to blizzard by the way, weather. I almost didn't make it in. It was a close one, not gonna lie.

Every year like clock work, too. Hey, it's December and suddenly it's cold and snowy here in the land of sunshine. Christmas decorations trying to kill us, mistletoe that makes young men kiss mall santas. It's like I never even left New York. Also it looks like I missed the snowmen this year. Can we put in a request for more snowmen?

Anyway, I have cronuts and most of you probably don't, so I'm currently winning the internet. Also, hey, Stark Employees, Merry Christmas to you - Happy Holidays, shrug emoji, whatever thing you celebrate. If you will. And I will. Am. Already started, no one's surprised.

Look in your accounts, 'cause like hey - you can't take it with you, so why was it sitting around in my bank account? You get a bonus and you get a bonus and YOU get a bonus.

Sending out a warning to any trick-or-treaters in the Irvine area. If you see a... well... monster-like truck, please let me know. My pickup seems to be... alive. DO NOT get in front of it; someone apparently put teeth decals on the grill yesterday and today those fangs are very real. It already ate through my neighbor's mailbox on its way down the street.

Again, if you see this truck, do not approach and contact me directly. Thank you.

Well damn. Looks like this stupid Halloween OC shenanigans got me in the end after all.

My truck decided to have a mind of its own and start rollin' up and down the block like a damn...zombie, is my best guess. I mean, it was slow as hell and makin' all kinds of noises. Even kept moving despite the fact it was OFF and the brakes were engaged - which means I need new brakes. And tires.

I had to bust each one just to keep the damn thing from runnin' over trick or treaters.

My arm and I have parted ways. It wasn't me, it was really my arm. And basically everything else in my apartment.

After this, I might need to rethink my connection with electronics and robotics.

There's a costume contest at the office, but I'm not sure I'm going to be participating this year. I've been told that I'm not allowed to wear my suit. To be fair, I understand how someone might assume I'd just put on my Iron Man suit and win all of the competitions, but that seems a little both unfair and lazy.

I'm waiting for inspiration to strike. Perhaps I'll get a costume this year after all.

I want to fly it but he said I can't because I'm too little. That's okay, i found these super cool gloves and I can go wherever I want! I went to a park and then a bakery but I didn't mean to but I wanted cookies. I also went to DISNEYLAND ALL BY MYSELF!

It doesn't matter how many different versions of myself I dream of.

The first dreams, with the island...the ones after where I'm more established and accepted the nobility thing. The ones with the Cradle of Life. And the ones where I met a very attractive cop with a magical gauntlet and took a visit to the after life to bring her back. And now this new one I had last night.

My parents die. Even here, in this world.

It's like I'm always destined to be orphaned.

So I've gotten used to waking up floating above my bed every now and then. It almost doesn't even phase me anymore. I'm just worried that Alex will come into my room one morning and find me floating in the air. I'm not sure how I'd explain any of this to her.

Anyway, I just woke up from a new dream where I had a doppelgänger who was the exact opposite of me. She was created by the head of Lord Technologies, Maxwell Lord to believe that Supergirl was evil. So where I have freeze breath, she basically breathed fire and had ice vision where I have heat vision. I tried to reason with her when it was clear that we were more or less evenly matched until the DEO showed up. They tried using green Kryptonite on her, but it had the opposite effect than it would on me. The next time we faced off they used blue Kryptonite on her and that weakened her where we could take her into custody.

During all of this, I tried to go on a date with Cat's son, Adam, but in the end, I decided that I couldn't have a normal life and relationship while also being Supergirl, because James had already been put in danger with Bizarro, which was what we called my doppelgänger so how could I potentially put someone else in danger if my secret identity was found out? Of course when I talked to Cat, the reason I gave, for dumping her son was that I was focusing on work instead of having a life.

And to make matters even worse, when I went home I got attacked by something with tendrils.

I can only imagine what's going to happen there.

Um, does anyone know how to fix a faucet? And a doorknob. I kind of broke them. I think it’s safe to say my super strength has crossed over. I’m currently writing this with the voice feature on my phone cause I’m afraid of breaking it. I’m so glad Alex isn’t home.

I may have overdone it with the Thin Mints this year. There's still a few hundred boxes in my office.

I can't decide if that's a win or a loss.
