Beating Relic Keeper with the L-Vest. My previous video shows how to get the L-Vest early in the same chapter.

Note that there’s a little dissolve during the second phase, because I had to pause the game to take care of a wrong-number call. :P

I leave Tumblr for half a day and then find Hong Kong all over my dash. 

All I have to say is 

  • I am very suspicious of people saying “stop a second Tiananmen Square Massacre happening” because wow way to conflate the two and ignore the different factors in each. Not to mention people love holding up the Tiananmen Square Protests as a “students’ fight for democracy against communism” and that’s just so overly-simplistic? And then they use this as a reason to “help fight democracy by getting the US gov involved” and it’s like NOOOOOO do you understand what you’re doing, you’re just making things worse STOP STOP ABORT 
  • On that note, don’t sign the whitehouse petition. Again, no US intervention wanted nope. 
  • PLEASE don’t compare this to Ferguson. Repeat- don’t compare this to Ferguson. Ferguson has a different situation that is centered around anti-blackness and black genocide in the US, for gods sake don’t compare it to what’s happening in Hong Kong 
  • What’s happening in Hong Kong is serious, no doubt about that, and yes we should support the protestors there. But NOT in a way that misrepresents the issue and helps foster US imperialism.

I make a lot of poor financial decisions. None of them matter, in the long term. I will never not be poor, so what does it matter if I don’t pay a thing and a half this week instead of just one thing? It’s not like the sacrifice will result in improved circumstances; the thing holding me back isn’t that I blow five bucks at Wendy’s. It’s that now that I have proven that I am a Poor Person that is all that I am or ever will be. It is not worth it to me to live a bleak life devoid of small pleasures so that one day I can make a single large purchase. I will never have large pleasures to hold on to.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENING IN HONG KONG NOW

This video is made by Crixus Yuen, I don’t own anything.

————————————————————————————————————-

I am a Hong Konger, and we hold a pro-democracy protest to fight for the freedom we deserved. However, Hong Kong Police uses violence including tear gas and GUN to stop us, even though we did it in a peaceful way. Lots of people got hurt, INCLUDING THE ELDERLY AND TEENAGERS.

WE ARE PROTECTING OUR RIGHT AND WE DONT DESERVE TO BE TREATED LIKE THAT

It doesnt matter if you are a Hong Konger or not.  If you support us to fight for our freedom. PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO.  

Please take a moment out of your day to share the video to support the people of Hong Kong. They are shooting people with rubber bullets and tear gassing them. This is not okay.

Super-short video I recorded for someone else’s LP, showing how to get the L-Vest in Chapter 3.

Not seen: Trying to throw the bounce-happy church bell so it lands just right and not in the water (blonk); screwing up the bell jump over and over

Maybe later: Killing Relic Keeper with the L-Vest on

My city is in chaos.
This is what’s happening to Hong Kong right this minute.

It is difficult for me to put into words, but simply put, University students started a class boycott movement demanding democracy and universal suffrage from the Hong Kong and Chinese Government this week, and the movement has escalated into citizens occupying Government Square and now, a main road leading into Hong Kong’s central hub.

Most protesters are younger generation Hong Kongers, including university students and even secondary school students. The leader of the student movement himself is barely even old enough to drive a car. 
The movement began peacefully with citizens merely sitting quietly and occupying a public space in a silent protest on Friday night. 

Then at 7:00 in the morning the next day, policemen stormed into the public square and began clearing out the area by force, dragging youngsters out violently, injuring many of them. Policemen have also been witnessed to beating youngsters without reason, and using high-concentration, anti-riot pepperspray on civilians who are merely attempting to protect themselves. No civilian put up any sort of fight or attempt at assaulting the police as far as i know,
(Police justified clearing out the area with the reason that protesters are holding illegal meetings in a public space.)

(Protesting civilians who remained on the streets overnight are wearing plastic wraps and raincoats under 30 degree weather in an attempt to protect themselves should the police utilize peppersprays again.)

The movement escalated again tonight when the protesters (now 4 times the size of the student movement the previous week) occupied a main road leading to the central hub of Hong Kong.

The police barricaded the roads and attempted to stop more people from joining the crowd this whole afternoon, but the peaceful crowd remained persistent and would not leave the area even after the police issued verbal warnings. (I emphasize “peaceful”, because protesters continued to be orderly and did not display any forms of aggression. They even cleared out a path for cars to pass the area, something the police didn’t even bother to do.)

At around 6:00, the police began using peppersprays on civilians again, this time high-powered ones that came in tanks instead of in bottles. Our people continued to shield themselves with umbrellas, but the umbrellas were also soon snatched away by the police. Live feed videos have also confirmed that police have been misusing peppersprays by firing them at close proximity, and also not giving any sort of verbal warnings before firing.

Yet again, protesters remained, and at 7:00, armed forces were sent into the crowd. They began firing tear gas capsules INTO the crowds and even INTO First-aid stations. The rounds came every few minutes and i counted at least 5 capsules being fired in a 10-minute period according to the live feeds.

image

at least 30,000 people continue to stand their ground right this second, more armed policemen are being sent in, and news is that these police are ordered to use guns (loaded with plastic bullets) on civilians if protesters continue to remain.

I fear for the people because policemen are not what they used to be anymore. These “police” who should be protecting us are now private armies for the government. I am watching my city die. It’s a terrifying feeling. If the police feel they are justified to use force on innocent civilians, tonight could end up in another massacre just like that of the Tian An Men June Fourth Massacre in 1989. 


And at this point I am too emotional to say anything else except that we need your prayers and your support. Please spread this out, people all over the world need to see what is happening right now.

hey question time

if you write stuff, do you outline things first? or do you not?

i usually dont outline. i had an outline for last year’s nano project and i didn’t get very far with the actual story buuut i wasn’t very attached to it and i have never been one to write 50,000 words in a month so idk if that means ‘i cant function with an outline’ or if that was just another project that didn’t get off the ground like any other project that didn’t get off the ground (thats not a disparagement it’s always been my style to launch a bunch of projects and some of them will crash and burn right off and some of them will catch on and last for way too long and some of them will sit inactive for a while and then wake up years later)

i know two cool people who outline and… i don’t know the process of pretty much anyone else but them. so what’s your process if you write? do you outline? how much do you outline? do you just word vomit

i used to write a bunch of disconnected scenes and then join them together, now i just write straight through from the beginning with no plan, no nothing, and then get surprised when it turns out vague and rambling. i’ve never really taken to outlines

After reading about 10,000 different outlining methods, I settled on this amalgamation where I write chunky paragraphs of “This happens, this happens, then this happens. Character is like ‘ohhh nooo’ and then he does a cool thing.” It defaults to present tense (my actual prose is almost always past tense) to keep me in the moment—more of an unconscious thing, though.

Everything’s kind of summarized. Dialogue is boiled down to the speaker’s basic intentions, and spoilery reasons are inserted so I remember why a thing is happening, or how it affects something later on. Sometimes I’ll be more detailed about a plot point if it’s clear in my mind at the time. I’ll also go back and flesh out parts that were originally sparse, adding more detail.

My outlines look sort of like the actual story, except with lots of telling and irreverent comments because those aren’t making it into the final product anyway. I’ve also used bullet points and timelines for my stories, but my current method is serving me well at the moment.

Like indigogrim said, outlines are just a tool; there’s no need to obey them strictly. When I get to writing the actual chapter prose, I cut from the outline as I write through and around it, and add new details as necessary. It also helps me catch plot holes and other missing things early on.

I have a couple of outlines overloaded with slow scenes that don’t help the story or characters in any way, but at least they’re still just outlines. They’re easier for me to fix in their current states.

I claim 0% professionalism and a 100% love for writing.

okay i cannot think of anything more to add, so here’s your botched anticlimax ending

btw this chapter has a lot of broken and/or made-up ‘i don’t care anymore’ not-science in it but so did everything else in these so

I’m excited for the epilogue~ And I just wanna say that these stories bring me joy. They give me something to be excited about and I love the expansion on the universe. It may be an AU but, its wonderful and it makes me laugh and I’ve cried at least once and I’m very invested in the character’s and their development. 

I know you don’t like them. But, it really means a lot that you stuck with it till the end and if you do make a third one well, I’ll read the hell out of that too and if you don’t well thanks for writing these because they are my favorite IZ fanfictions ever. 

Ditto. I love Experimental and Hypothetical for the interactions and conflicts between Zim and Dib, as well as their internal conflicts relating to that. The development between them has been rocky, not always necessarily advancing, justified by their egos and suspicions. To me, the focus of these fics has been exactly that—the monsters and evil scientists were ancillary.

I can understand if that wasn’t Cassie’s intention. That’s just what I got out of it as a reader.
