So I guess related to my last post about Ownership,

Back to the subject of death of the author, I hate that this phrase is regarded as a universally positive thing.

I mention the word rapist but there's no actual assault, also I mention genitalia attributes?? more rambling )

Friends and acquaintances have come and gone in my life. Some amicably, some... Not so much. But one thing I want to be clear about: My pain is not your pain.

If I have had a falling out with a person, I generally don't want other people involved if they weren't already involved before hand. I don't like losing friends, I get no pleasure in cutting off people I cared about so I don't like it when I'm not allowed to grieve. Talking about how 'bad' an ex-friend was, doing nothing but pointing out the negative, that doesn't help me. No, really, please don't find me and tell me what tiny, minuscule infraction bad ex-friend is doing now unless it's relevant. Maybe a little comeuppance where appropriate, or settling of concerns or fears, but really, they're not a part of my life, I don't need to know what they're doing with their lives unless it's to help me avoid them. If I have someone filtered out, there's a reason for it. Good things happened with those people, let me have that at least. Not everyone copes in the same way and that's fine.

Related to that, I do not care who are friends with my ex-friends. Those people might have hurt me but that doesn't mean it's the same for everyone. Other people are allowed to have different experiences with ex-friends than I had. Long as you don't try to force me to interact with them, I don't care. At most, there are some people I worry about being mislead or mistreated by a person, but if there has been change I'm not going to let personal experiences get in the way of that. (for the record, I don't negatively judge people who can't be friends with people who are interacting with an ex friend especially in an abusive situation) At the most I'll worry about people getting abused themselves by people that have hurt me, or I may not trust them as much, but can't really force them to 'choose'.

Interpersonal stuff is complicated.

Discord is cool, I like group chats I like socializing and interact with new people I might never have before, but wow oh wow do I miss one on one conversations, ones that are at least something to look forward to at least.

chatting whine )

I ended up buying Fallout 3 in the Steam Summer Sale, because I'd wanted to give it a try for a long time, but never got around to it. Getting it to work on my laptop was tricksy, and it's crashing more than I'd like it to, but... it's a Bethesda game. That sort of comes with the territory. (Forever annoyed that I can't alt+tab, though.)

I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH, YOU GUYS. And I normally hate post-apocalyptic settings, so I'm really surprised. I statted high in intelligence + agility, because "stealthing gunbunny hacker" sounds like my kind of playstyle. I'm already thinking of subsequent runs. At some point, I want to play a character who specializes solely in punching things.

I'm looking at the mods, now, and wondering how many of these I can get away with installing. This really is not a gaming laptop. The fact that this is an older game helps, but whenever I think of my poor, underachieving laptop fan, I get stressed. Does anyone play with mods, and if so, do you have any recs?

I regret not also picking up New Vegas, but I doubt I'll have to wait long for it to go on sale again. Apparently there's a mod that combines both games in the NV engine? That sounds awesome.
