mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary
cuddling is probably one of the most passionate forms of love there is because you just feel so safe and close to the person and it feels like all your worries go away and it’s one of the greatest feelings in the world

Yesterday was a pretty quiet day, really. For me, at least. Got to spend a bit of time just sitting around Cathedral Square reading, doing a little thinking on the blacksmithing projects I’m planning for when I’m back in the right sort of state to make a start on them. Not too far off now, hopefully. Been a while since I’ve had any injuries that lasted this long…rough as it feels not to be able to hold Gloria or do any of the things I usually would if I were in a better condition, guess it is nice to have a chance to rest while things with the GSI haven’t been so active. Like I said, it was quiet yesterday. Didn’t really talk to anybody until evening, ‘part from when that Elcarth guy who used to work for Lady Grouss stopped briefly while I was reading. Business at the Brawlpub took a turn apparently, so he’s working as a pirate now. Not the most natural career progression, really, but get the impression he’s enjoying it, even if it’s maybe not the sort of thing he should’ve been so quick to confess in the middle of the city with guards passing by all around. ‘Part from him, didn’t talk to anybody until I ran into Alliste ‘round about six in the evening. Didn’t wind up talking to her all that much. Between half the Sigil all showing up at once and her drifting off while they were talking about arm-wrestling and the reproductive systems of ducks, didn’t get a chance to catch up with how she’s getting on. Not in prison at least, didn’t look to have any particularly nasty new injuries, so I guess she’s getting on better than she could be.
She wandered off after a little while, but I stuck around, kept talking to people for a little bit until they all trailed off as well. Can’t remember all that much of what we talked about right off the top of my head…few miscellaneous things, I guess, nothing that really stands out thinking back on it. Talked about a couple more serious things when Lumenar was the only one left over. Strahm, for one thing. Still think she should talk to him herself about that issue she was having, but I told her what I’d gotten out of him and that seemed to satisfy her at least a little. Golden Law, after that. After the way Willexis was apparently taking charge in ways she shouldn’t have done up in Gilneas, made some bad decisions that ended with civilians getting killed and her only getting a soft sort of talking to as a result, think we’d both come to the conclusion that the alliance wasn’t really working out, that we needed to have a serious talk with Agnes about it. Solution Lumenar put forward was to have a vote on it, decide that way if the alliance should be upheld or not. Mentioned it to a couple people last night ‘round the ship, so I take that to mean Agnes approved. Seems like a good idea to me, even if we already have a pretty solid idea of what the result’s going to be. Course, even if things did get broken off, doesn’t mean there wouldn’t be any kind of connection anymore. Maybe not the warmest of friendships, but I figure we’d still help them out here and there, healing them if they come down to the ship, I guess allowing people to go to their missions if they want. I mean, they kind of need it, looking at the way things went in Gilneas yesterday. Danior ended up getting dragged home early on account of the head injuries he’d gotten, then it was sounding for a minute there like the whole of the Golden Law might not’ve been making it home. Wasn’t the case, thankfully, although don’t know how many from the main group made it through the night. Two that got brought to the ship for healing did, at least. Guess anything’s better than everybody dying.
‘Part from dealing with the injured, seemed a fair bit of last night went towards playing Hearthstone. Game still seems a little overly complex to me, little too flashy, but I guess I’ve got fairly simple tastes as far as recreation goes. Was some other business to be discussed, to do with the GSI mainly. Talk of how we’re gonna handle things from here. Jack’s apparently been talking to the 7th Legion, convinced them to lend him an airship of some kind. Not sure how keen I am on that idea…don’t necessarily like the idea of collaborating with the military, not to mention I’d prefer we can avoid it coming down to a test of who’s got the most firepower if at all possible. Keen as I was for a second or two there on blowing up their airship, might be a smarter idea to focus on either getting more people like that Samaritan C on our side or cutting off their fuel supplies, something like that. Might have enough combat on our hands raiding this Airbase 731 place where it sounds like they’re building the new airship. Still haven’t quite settled on a plan of attack for that one. Doubt it’ll be easy. On top of having to make sure this new airship of theirs never gets built, kind of want to keep the body count as low as possible. Don’t know Kialthos’d necessarily be too keen on it, but I’m thinking we want to go for as many non-lethal methods as possible even if that does reduce our effectiveness a little. Not just moral considerations going on there. On the strategic side, we know the GSI’s agents’re being blackmailed into serving them and that we’re a lot less likely to get them on side if we wind up looking like bloodthirsty savages. One thing if it comes down to it being their lives or ours, but I think that’s enough that we shouldn’t open up by shooting to kill.

((What… No one, IC or OOC - made it clear that civilians got killed.. If that’s the case then there is some seriously hell would have been raised ICly with Will. Unfortunately not much I can do ICly until I find out and -no one- told me =/ was wondering where the sudden intent to break the Alliance had come from - but now it makes sense =/ ))
((I wasn’t there for long, but from what I heard it was an off handed DM post after they moved into the cathedral, which everyone supported, both sigil and G-Law.))
