- mr-finch: what if
- Finch/Ben drops off the grid
- but he's been training Sayid just as much as Reese
- so Sayid steps in to take his place
- shawarma-palace: and the Machine gets them together to solve the problem
- mr-finch: so he's the one who sends Callum
- and Elias sends out Richard
- and then Reese meets Sayid as this boss figure
- but both don't know that they're actualy working for the same guy
- and that's what the episode's about
- coming to realize that
- shawarma-palace: seriously why does this not exist
- mr-finch: or maybe that's the whole of season two
- shawarma-palace: and then at the end he recognizes Reese's methods
- 'cause Reese keeps doing what he would do
- mr-finch: yes and Reese is surprised by the way Sayid is doggedly going after one person without a hit out on them
- no record of a hit taken out on x
- so where'd he get his name from, why's he pursuing him
- there's no link, no real motive
- /seems just like you, Mr Reese/
- shawarma-palace: Because what Finch hid, what Finch never told anyone
- and the machine's antiterrorism is just a cover
- for the fact that it's actually designed to protect the island
- mr-finch: o m g
- and the irrelevant list
- are all relevant to the island
- shawarma-palace: the machine is Jacob
- mr-finch: OMFG
- (help me)
- shawarma-palace: and that's why there are so many coincidences, so many interweavings of lives because Jacob is always watching, always steering
- mr-finch: yes
- shawarma-palace: and he's stuck in the machine
Looking for a few prompts to write 200-500 words for while I’m on the plane thursday and the plane back Sunday. Fandoms include: Supernatural, DueSouth, Avengers, Person of Interest, Starsky & Hutch and many others.
Can someone explain to me why in the sudden explosion of werewolf fic EVERYWHERE for every fandom, there’s all this hubris about ‘Alpha’ and ‘Omega’ status?
And why, because wolf packs don’t work like this, is everyone one or the other, mostly a jillion omegas. Guys the Omega is the ONE lowest member in context to a particular pack. If a wolf isn’t IN a pack, he’s not an omega. If a pack is formed, there is ONE omega.
There is usually an Alpha pair which would be the only pair to mate and produce offspring. There is also often a Beta who works as a second in command and deals with more minor problems in the pack social structure. The middle of the pack (between 1 and 30 animals depending on individual pack) is made up of ‘unranked’ animals usually younger wolves, pups, and females. When a wolf matures enough to want to mate, he will usually disperse from the pack to find his own territory. He may take an unranked female with him or not, depending.
The Omega, as I’ve stated before is the single lowest status wolf, in the context of that pack. This isn’t something a wolf is born with but that is tested out in social interaction, play, dominance struggles, etc. The status is usually then reinforced. The omega eats last, is often the target of surplus aggression, and is usually the instigator of play. But there’s only one. You can’t have a ‘pack full of omegas and one alpha’ because seriously they would suss it all out between themselves to form a new social ladder with ONE omega. It would probably be a tetchy process with a lot of scuffles and mouthing and minor fights.
Unless all these werewolf aus are based on some random canon for something that I don’t know about and somehow missed, which I’d like to know actually so I can stop being so damn confused by all this basically jibberish. I mean if you know anything about wolves, it really does put you off of reading the fic. It’s like ‘do some research what the hell’.
I like how they make an avengers porn parody and Tony’s the one who doesn’t get laid. how I mean just. ‘okay man wear this ridiculous costume, voice three lines, stand around, and then get punched off camera’ and if you’re a porn star you just let that happen?
Let’s imagine the casting calls for this monstrosity anyway: ‘Wanted, women who aren’t afraid to dress up in ridiculous internet costumes with the crotch cut out and have sex with men in ridiculous internet costumes equally with the crotch cut out. Also one large woman to be painted green.” (They got Chyna as she hulk. dear god why no why.)
Anyway Chunkeye liked the sausage to biscuit ratio of the team and that’s about the point my brain shut off and made inarticulate noises of horror.
sharpie liquid pencil is ruining my life. seriously I want to like you sharpie stuff, everything else you make is so good but it’s impossible to get a solid line out of this damn thing for more than half an inch. I thought I could use it for gestures but nope, it’s driving me crazy. FRUSTRATING.
Okay my brain has melted out so now I think I need a break from trying to comprehend three different schools of philosophy in quick succession. I’m a slow thinker.
I should be working on Nassau or Scientists, instead I’m like I want to eat ice cream and then read Bruce/Tony Porn but AO3 is down. Curse you all, pit of voles migrants! Stop breaking A03.
criminy, scientists has 7k hits. I’ll stop being such a horrible slacker.
Argh I should study Rome first b/c Rome is relevant to Cairne but I’m now so interested in Greece because I know so little about it it’s like ‘OH THIS IS ALL NEW HOW INTERESTING’ and then it’s like….
No I could study color theory or write Nassau or blah blah blah.
Okay I need to like buckle down and pick one thing, or I’ll never get any of them done. Man! And I have to work on my intro for Hetherev, and I should do a zillion other things.
