The Accidental Podcaster: Priorities
May 18th
It's been one of those weeks, writing-wise. Hell, let's be honest, it's been one of those weeks life-wise, too. The ones where you start quite a bit - snippet here, paragraph there - of a bunch of different projects, but can't get your thoughts together long enough on any one thing to see something through to its completion. They'll all get there at some point. Just not necessarily this week.
Part of the reason is that in my various roles, both at Rivalcast and in my day job, it is widely understood/assumed that I am In Charge; that is, I have a track record of responsible behaviors and knowing where to find things to Get Shit Done, and therefore must be able to do anything at any time with a certain level of competence and panache. This is a dangerous assumption and one that I try to minimize whenever possible, because being In Charge naturally leads people to assume I Have Answers and thus come to me with all kinds of problems I am most assuredly not qualified to handle. People come to me with situations and are pleased because I seem to be taking time and thinking, but honestly, most of those thoughts are trying to control the panic over figuring out what can possibly be done and why the person is coming to me in the first place. Pull a few rabbits out of your hat and people begin to think you're a magician.
And those are the easy ones.

The Fireside Tales - Chapter Thirty-Five
May 13th
Chapter Thirty-Five: The Next Job
"Are you ready for your next task? The work never ends."
Bubnug took a small step back and his face twisted in nervousness. Valtyra did not think he would know what those titles meant, but he knew the weight behind them. The man in front of them was a powerful man indeed, leading the City of Monuments, Magnimar. The stories of this man, though, were not flattering ones. The poor being ignored and murders remaining uninvestigated. There was only one reason for being here in Valtyra's eyes: He did not want to get his hands dirty.

Agents of ARACHNOS, Episode 31: The Morning After
May 6th
Agents of Arachnos - The Morning After
Hax topped off the mug with hot water, then carefully balanced it, his coffee, and a plate of scones in one hand while he grabbed a copy of the morning's paper in the other. Across the crowded breakfast room, the Baroness, clad in her Cookie Monster pants and a blue cardigan retrieved from the decimated hotel suite, sat curled up in a corner of the booth. She yawned as the web ninja maneuvered his way across the room and carefully set down his wares. It had been a long night. Her head was pounding from the aftereffects of the spider venom as Hax dropped with an exhausted plomp into the seat across from her.
"What does the paper say about it?" she asked groggily.

The Accidental Podcaster: Identity
May 4th
It was a gorgeous spring day for my last community college visit of the semester. The atrium where the college reps tables were set up skirted a student art exposition showcasing their work for the semester - excellent, because I'd have the double bonus of increased traffic for my visit and get a more interesting focal point for my people watching. My assigned table was at the end of the atrium, directly across from the station where students of the sketch classes were doing free portraits of festival goers. It should have, by my estimation, been a very busy morning, so I wasn't even upset that my laptop battery drained itself in the first couple of hours trying to connect to the wifi. It was here things started to go astray.
Without the distractions of paperwork, my brain focused on the (increasingly loud) conversations of the students nearest me. One in particular stuck out - a first-year, dressed in expensive designer Bohemian look clothes, who was spending more time talking about how she was being persecuted and punished for, in her words, being a "full-out 100% lesbian" (or, alternately, gushing about the attractiveness of Chris Evans. Yeah.) than she was actually sketching. We'll refer to her as "Tortured Artist" for reasons which will soon become clear. When a same-sex couple sat down at her easel to have their portrait done together, I got to learn more about Tortured Artist's perceived notions of herself than I'd think appropriate in an academic setting. The "persecution" part was her own words, though her examples of this persecution were among the most laughably first-world problems I'd ever personally witnessed: Her father was punishing her by not buying her the new car she wanted, but a different one instead (her presumably straight sister got to pick her own car). Tortured Artist was being persecuted for her art by her fellow students - they just didn't understand her work (never mind that of the pieces I saw, it was truly awful). She loudly described, in vivid detail, her embarrassment the first time she took a girlfriend home to meet her parents and they didn't embrace her choice as openly and readily as she wanted (it sounded to me like they weren't disapproving of their daughter's choice, but confused about the Chris Evans thing, too). The piece de resistance, however, was how at the beginning of the conversation this girl's mother was an ally, but by the end she, too, had apparently bought her ticket on the persecution train via the inexcusable sin of purchasing Tortured Artist's organic something or other snack from Giant Eagle, a local grocery chain, rather than from Whole Foods Market.
The bitch.
