[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: I mean, I have not actually seen an alien!sex story where the participants wander off in confusion. Although I am not willing to bet they don't exist.
[livejournal.com profile] greenygal: I'm sure it exists somewhere, because there is an awful lot of fic, but not *commonly*, no.
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector:
"I have spikes!"
"I have tentacles!"
"Sounds great! But also, my pre-come is a numbing agent. Sorry."
"That's okay. My tentacles produce a paralytic enzyme when I get horny."
[livejournal.com profile] greenygal:
"*cautiously* You don't...possibly...devour your mate, do you?"
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector:
"No! Nonononono! Of course not! Well. I mean. It's not *required*."
[livejournal.com profile] greenygal:
"*backing away in unsubtle manner* I just remembered. I've taken a vow of chastity. For all forms of sex involving tentacles. It's a very specific vow."
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector:
*nods sadly* "Not that specific. It turned out my last partner had taken a vow of chastity only for all forms of sex involving tentacles with paralytic enzymes. It was okay though- he had this thing that looked like, I dunno, a giant finger between his legs. Or maybe a mushroom? It was weird."
[livejournal.com profile] brown_betty: You probably don't want me to help with emotions, I'm bad at them too!
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: ...I guess! Where is the lapsed Vulcan support group, I ask you?
Betty: I don't know! Man, that would be a pretty great support group, though.
Betty: You would get a sponsor and you could call them at any time, and be like, "Help, I think I'm having an emotion, what do I do!?"
Karen: "Have you tried repressing it?"
Betty: ahahah. Yeah, that is probably how it'd go.
Karen: "Have you tried focusing on a math problem to distract yourself?"
Karen: And then once a week we could get together and eat spiked chocolates and watch movies about logic and chess games.
Betty: This is a pretty good plan.
Karen: I feel so. So to speak.
Karen: (We could discuss how socially awkward we were recently and congratulate each other for it!)
Karen: ...*has independently invented lj*
Betty: I have a sudden and unwelcome insight into Brad's thoughts, ten years ago.
Karen: And then he ended up with pro-ana groups and hp incest porn. Yeah, I'd have run too.
Betty: Put that way, really not surprising.

Deep, Important Discussion on whether my interpretation of the Legion cartoon is the only valid one...

[insanejournal.com profile] greenygal: Who knows? It's an alien race of sentient superintelligent mindmelding transforming robots. Anything is possible!
[insanejournal.com profile] odditycollector: That is what I want! *decides* To see Brainy turn into a truck! )

The previews for tomorrow's Supergirl comic are up, and this page has me a little bit concerned.

Kara: But think about it for a second. How are this guy's powers even possible?

[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: "Noooo. Once you go down that route it is all logically disproving the existence of your universe!"
[livejournal.com profile] caia_comica: Oh dear!
Caia: That would be really, really bad.
Karen: Superman is trying to tell her that!
Caia: He *knows* that *their* powers don't stand up to any logical scrutiny either!
Karen: "You should not be one to talk, Kara."
Caia: *shakes head* She needs to stop this now, before she disappears in a puff of logic!

Karen: At least there seem to be words in this issue.
Karen: It's a nice change!
Caia: Yay WORDS.
Caia: Are there not usually?
Karen: It was the writer who invented Cass. I think he may have been having difficulty adjusting.

(All srsness, though, I totally approve of how Kara discovered some brains recently and will be picking it up. It's just that trying to find an internally consistent logic within their universe is why so many DCU scientists go MAD.)
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: :p pbbbt
[livejournal.com profile] caia_comica: *makes various immature gestures*
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: Oh, well. If you're going to be VAGUE about it.
[livejournal.com profile] caia_comica: Vague is more menacing!
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: Replies, vaguely!
[livejournal.com profile] caia_comica: *counterattacks in an even vaguer manner!*
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: *makes a rebuttal, sending the argument in an extremely vague direction*
[livejournal.com profile] caia_comica: *wins, or maybe loses, it's too vague to tell*

(LJ-ify your IMs before pasting!)
For balance.

[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: *waves*
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: *sneakily*
[livejournal.com profile] greenygal: *amused* So do you not want me to see the wave, or are just practicing your supervillain style?
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: Well, the pounding in of heads turned out not to be an effective greeting technique after all.
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: Who knew?
[livejournal.com profile] greenygal: Lex keeps trying to explain it to Grundy...
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: Silly Lex. Just team him up with bizarro!
[livejournal.com profile] greenygal: Well, yes, but then Lex winds up spending rather more than he'd like on repair bills. And the rest of the team complains about how their shiny Fortress of Doom is constantly sporting big gaping holes.
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: Isn't that the case *anyway*?
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: Lex can station them at the Main headquarters. They end up in Antarctica.
[livejournal.com profile] greenygal: *pauses, looks worried* But then don't we run the risk that they'll run into G'nort?
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: Maybe that's the plan?
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: Bizarro invites him over for tea.
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: Grundy punches him in the head.
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: Gnort explains that he's flattered, but his heat belongs to another.

[livejournal.com profile] greenygal: *would spit out tea if she were drinking it*
[livejournal.com profile] greenygal: Tell me you meant "heart." Pretty please. *g*
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: HEART! I MEANT HEART!
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: Argh.
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: YES.
[livejournal.com profile] greenygal: (Which is bad enough, mind, but still. :)
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: He is SAVING HIMSELF FOR GUY.
[livejournal.com profile] odditycollector: They are MEANT2B.

(LJ-ify your IMs before pasting!)
Me: Heya!
Me: I see you've got this newfangled "internet" thing worked out. ; )
My Mom: Yes.
My Mom: And right now, I'm typing with one hand.
My Mom: : )
For [livejournal.com profile] stardance.

5. In Batman: Year One, we see that Bruce developed a whistle that will call a swarm of bats to surround him, confusing and/or utterly freaking the shit out of any pursuing cops. But a giant swarm of flying rodents obscuring his vision and movements proved to be not as useful as he had hoped, and, besides, a couple of the bats got hit by stray bullets and Bruce still hasn't forgiven himself.

4. No one spoke of the Bat-Strobe-Suit again. Even Especially if it was fun at parties.

3. For a few months after becoming Robin, Dick Grayson refused to eat anything that wasn't bat-shaped. This phase has long since passed into the realm of embarrassing anecdotes, but, on the morning after Dick left for college, Alfred dug out the Bat-Waffle-Maker one last time.

2. There is a switch in the Batmobile that will convert it outwardly into a common Ford-made sedan. However, while useful for camouflage purposes, this would require making it look less cool.

1. This one: )

Karen: ... Random thoughts: you think Superboy ever played with his Legion action figures?
Carmen: And probably not, rule-abiding youngster that he was--if he messed with them, they might not light up to let him know that the Legion needed him in the future!
Karen: Did he have a Superboy toy?
Carmen: ...you mean aside from the five zillion robots? :)
Karen: Yes, but they are not small enough
Karen: Maybe the Kandorians would suffice?
Karen: "Oh Cosmic Boy, let us beat up the invading aliens. Pow! Pow! Ahhh! Pow"
Karen: "Ow! You're holding me too tight!"
Karen: "And my leg doesn't bend that way!"
Karen: Later: "But I don't *want* to kiss Brainiac 5."
Carmen: You are deeply deeply evil, and I am almost sorry to point out that Superboy didn't have the Bottle City.
Karen: *Time travelling Kandorians, OKAY?*
Carmen: Superman: "Citizens of Kandor, I have a mission for you. It is of course strictly volunteer, but I confess it would bring me great pleasure if you were to participate." Kandorians: "Anything for you, Superman, our savior!" Superman: "Well, when I was a kid, I never had really satisfying toys to play with..." Kandorians: "..."
The problem with giving an "Other" option in a poll is that, yes, people *do* have other options you haven't thought of. So you have to twist your brain around trying to make it *work*.

For example... ) 

And now I'm convinced Tim/Kara is a creepy and yet somewhat *compelling* possibility, given Current Events.

Could somebody help me out? I just watched House, and I am oh so very confused about one point in tonight's episode. )

I'm sure it makes sense somehow? Right? *looks hopeful in LJ's general direction*

In related, but you *really* don't care *how*, news, I've finally figured out why the new JLU episodes haven't been aired yet. ) 
Last night, I was just pointing out the need for Zombie fic:

Proof )
And then I woke up this, um, afternoon, and there was a ZOMBIE FICATHON waiting for me!

It *must* be Christmas.

PS. Everyone go sign up now. You know you want to! Zombies!
Last night [livejournal.com profile] vagabondsal and I had a very deep and meaningful discussion on a subject close to the human, well, condition. He felt the conclusions we drew would benefit all, so he posted it like the considerate guy he is.

But then we didn't stop there, like sane people might have done, or those who'd had less coffee...

vagabondsal: ...right, I've no choice now. *reposts to LJ*
flightykaren: Kara: Why *do* you wear them on the outside? )

So, yes. I think the moral to draw from this is that some people *never stop being twelve*.
