On Medical Care
A friend of mine picked his dog up from the vet's office today after she had her teeth cleaned. The dog's teeth, not my friend's. He'd probably be rather shocked if he realized that his mom had been taking him to a veterinarian instead of a dentist, and that he was, in fact, a girl. But I digress. He said something about keeping a few of the vet's cards to give to people with bad breath, as it would be cheaper than going to a dentist.
He'd get punched in the face. But then he could go to them for stitches! (Well, I think he should just go the DIY route and use a sewing kit and/or superglue.)
Would that work, though? I don't really see why not, besides the whole legality thing. If you trust a person to pretty much take your pet apart and then put it back together again, you'd damn well better trust them to put a few sutures in your own body.
The care might even be preferable. You wouldn't get in as much trouble if you tried to bite the nurse, and you might not even have to, since they p

Match
  She was quiet.
  Her parents glanced at each other over her head. An unspoken question passed between them, so simple and yet so complex, and so often in their minds.
  Her father's face tensed and her mother bit her lip, then shook her head. 'No. Give it another moment.'
  The girl, who was maybe eleven years old, giggled softly. The dog stared up at the group, one front foot curled under his nose. The other leg was twisted slightly to the side. It had been shaved recently, tufts of fur just beginning to cover the bare skin. Scars formed a lattice, pink lines slowly fading to white. The limb ended abruptly.
  She laughed again, softy, and her eyes flickered briefly over her own legs, and she sank down carefully and sat next to the dog.
  Stroking his ear gently, she murmured just loudly enough to hear,
  "We match."

Mirror Mirror
  There was something disturbing about mirrors. John couldn't identify exactly what it was, but whenever he glimpsed his reflection there was a creeping feeling like he'd just dipped his hand into a glass of ice water. No, that wasn't it. It was as if he had touched the surface and the water had crawled up his finger, gradually making its way up his arm, slowly but inexorably engulfing his body.
  Unpleasant, to say the least. So now he avoided mirrors and reflective surfaces in general. The blinds were pulled over the windows at all times, doorknobs left unpolished. Puddles were walked by quickly, his gait stiff and irregular.
  Now, however, John was facing a mirror. It was framed with ancient wood and the corners had begun to speckle and tarnish with age.
  He watched himself. It wasn't quite himself, though. His hands were empty- in the mirror a plumy white feather dangled from his right hand and a wilted rose decorated a buttonhole.

A Guide to Writing Combat-Related Mental Illness
Coming Back from Combat: A Writer’s Guide to Combat Related Psychological Illness in Fiction
The aim of this guide is simple: plenty of people want to write about war, to explore it, to understand it and understand soldiers they know who are in it or have come from it. But, often times putting the aftermath, the pain, and the psychological impact war has on the mind into words is difficult to do well.
This guide exists to help fiction writers accurately portray psychological disorders in their work, because the people who suffer from these disorders and their loved ones deserve honesty and do not deserve to be misrepresented. The guide is here to help writers understand how these disorders come about, how they are treated, and how to think critically about how they might impact the person who has them.
I. Introduction
1. A disclaimer, and polemics.
2. Why are you writing a psychological illness into your story?
3. Terms you should be familiar with for this

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let Down Your Trust Issues
I. (Set the stage)
"The color of my bra is called Flirt," the girl says, popping a bubble in Amelia's face and winking. The sickly sweet scent of chemicals and sugar mixes with the chemicals and the sugar of the bar, hags low and heavy about their faces. The girl slides closer, beaming, her eyelids low. She's wearing too much mascara. Amelia grips her drink tighter and pulls her elbows in – collapsing, she fills less space than she did before. Volume stays the same, the number of atoms composing her stays constant, but she appears to be smaller. Could this be expressed mathematically, or with a computer simulation, she wonders, and sips at her drink. She says nothing.
"See here." The girl tugs down her shirt sleeve and shows Amelia the thin bra strap pressing into the moon pale skin of her shoulder. The orange lighting makes her seem healthier than she is. "Flirt." She wiggles her eyebrows in a way that would be suggestive, if her makeup wasn't so dark that it made her look

And I keep coming back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. Hi everybody! I'm active again, for the time being. I don't know if I'll submit anything.

First of all, how are you all?

Now, I get to talk about me. I've started seriously stretching again, and I got a new youtube channel ( www.youtube.com/redheadedrambling , if anybody is interested... XD). I'm taking an English Comp 101 cram class at a local community college, and amazing everybody by being a) 17, b) still in high school, and c) unable to drive. For I have not yet gotten my license.

I'm also currently working on a video project and essay to go with it, which is fun, and giving my brain the much-needed distraction from summer. Summer is boring. And hot. And humid.

Yes, indeed. I'm good, struggling with a few unhappy things, but that's how life is sometimes. And you?
Also, how are you/did you/will you spend your birthday? :la:

But that doesn't mean they don't suck just as much. :(

And I'm pretty good! I slept in ridiculously late, went to biology class, and will now clean the house. I'm having a party next Saturday, though. :D And it's still a good day!
