Chatting with Delcat and um this happened
ps I love you, be back soon <3
Where am I now?
I hath now returned
Oh, I—oh I see
YOU will be back soon
whereas I am here
wow that was Captain Carrot-esque
Your thingy has been lit up a while, were you going to say something?
and then a ficlet happened
*cough* did it now
Yes. It did…
Cheery looked up from her lavatory-turned-chemistry-lab* as Carrot moved, purposefully and very lightly for such a large person, past the door. She frowned — this wasn’t right; Carrot was on personal guard duty for the visiting Genuan ambassador, Lady Something-Or-Other. He should be outside the guest quarters at the palace, along with a half dozen lower-ranking watchmen, standing ramrod-straight with his chin nearly pointing at the opposite wall, as he did almost reflexively when he had nothing else to do. Cheery ignored the small explosion detonating the sorry remains of the previously-installed lavatory equipment, which she had been using as a large beaker, and hurried after him.
”Carrot,” she shouted from behind — it was hard to match the pace of a determined Carrot — “what are you doing here? Lord Vetinari will— will—” it was hard to imagine what Vetinari would dare to do to possibly the only upstanding citizen of Ankh-Morpork, so she rested on “—will certainly not be pleased!”
”Hallo, Cheery. I’m investigating reports of corruption within our ranks in a timely and expedient manner, as per Regulation 54, Section a) 1 of the Lawe-Booke of Ankhe-Morporke.” Carrot did not look up as he began tossing open lockers and giving each one a cursory glance.
Shocked as she was at the behaviour of her superior officer, Cheery could only reply, “But— but you’ve direct orders to guard Lady Margolotta with your life!”
”Oh, don’t worry, Cheery.” Carrot finally paused to meet her eye, his stony face betraying a dwarfish seriousness that was a sour counterpart to his voice’s light, easy tone. “She left for an important momentary errand of State Affairs. She told me, ‘be back soon.’ I shall be back very soon; I’ve booked a carriage. Here is the receipt.” He held it up in Cheery’s view.
The female dwarf, fighting back the usual blush that was, for all it was concealed by a well-groomed beard, still a blush, valiantly managed to query, “Are you sure… she meant for *you* to leave, Carrot?”
Carrot nodded once. Very slowly. “Oh, definitely. Lady Margolotta understands the difficult strain on the Ankh-Morpork City Watch. A very kind woman, Cheery, and I am certain a good and loyal friend. Yes, I am certain.”
As Carrot turned back to his clattering, privacy-invading work (although of course it wasn’t, if it was Carrot; there was a law for it somewhere, you knew without looking), Cheery retreated backwards through the open doorway, nudging against a couple of other curious constables who had arrived, as was ancient custom, late at the scene. Despite it all, she worried about him.
Carrot was always very accurate. And he had very clearly made no statement of what would happen if the good Lady Margolotta thought of him as an enemy.
*They’d offered to expand her into the old Ramkin house, where apparently tens of rooms were gathering dust, but there was something about a commode that was, well… accommodating.
i’ve got this journal
it’s a spiral notebook with nice creamy orange pages, and it’s got Mugen, Jin, and Fuu on the front
on the inside cover is a note from Delcat, who gifted it to me - basically a package of good vibrations already
lately I’ve taken to writing messages to myself when I’m really happy to create this time capsule of good feelings. sometimes I wake up so lonely in the morning and it’s so hard to motivate myself and then I read a note or two that I wrote to myself
"you felt good for these reasons, and you’ll be in this place again"
you are straight up one of my favourite people
holy fucking shit
It has gotten to the point where I need a doc just to keep track of what I have planned
and I have NINE (9) confirmed ideas down and one possible
PLUS the collab I’m doing with Raile
THAT IS DOUBLE DIGITS OF FANFICTION
how did this happen
YOUR MOTHER AND I ARE WORRIED ABOUT YOU
PLEASE COME OUT OF YOUR ROOM
Help save a 16 year-old trans girl of color from being put in a mens adult prison with NO crimes charged on her by emailing Commissioner Katz.
She has never been convicted of a crime but they want to move her to near isolation in an adult mens prison. This CANNOT happen. Here is a more in depth article: http://feministing.com/2014/04/14/how-the-connecticut-department-of-children-families-is-failing-a-trans-girl-of-color/
I put together an email for Commissioner Katz, so all you have to do is copy and paste it. Click here for the example email
