Okay, people. I need you to take this viral, and fast.

We know someone in upstate New York who needs a good custody lawyer ASAP. I'm not at liberty to go into details publicly, but this woman is very afraid that her abusive boyfriend is going to get sole custody of her young child.  She's presently being represented by a public defender who doesn't seem to care about the case, and she has very few resources left at this point. Her next hearing is on Thursday.

If you know a good lawyer in New York State who might be willing to take this case for a low fee or pro bono, or at least offer her advice or support, please let me know. If you don't know anyone, please repost this far and wide. As a mother and an abuse survivor, it makes me absolutely sick to my stomach to contemplate a child being left in the hands of an abuser.

I can be reached at kythryne@gmail.com if you have any leads or want to help.

The internet can work miracles. Let's go.

Hi.

dear me
So.

I have here a month's supply of fluoxetine, with the promise of another three. Before those four months are up I hope to have had another doctor's appointment.

What this means, I hope, is that in the near future I am going to resemble a functional human being again, like I have increasingly not been for a couple of years now. If I have not talked to you in ages, or seemed as involved as I used to, it's because I've been more or less depressed out of my skull; and when I am depressed out of my skull I am unreasonable, needy, selfish, angry, and generally shitty to be around (not to mention convinced that everything I do is wrong and everyone hates me. I mean, more so than usual).

But I hope to be back soon, is what I'm saying.

(I keep saying "I hope" because in the past year there have been more roadblocks and fuckups and fakeouts than you would believe possible, and I have quit trusting that anything positive is going to last longer than it takes me to turn around good; but at least, at the moment, I have something tangible to go on.)

I feel sort of stupid posting this, like I'm fishing for e-hugz or something, but I feel worse having just kind of let my entire life slide for two years and neglected my relationships, like I do, and I just wanted to put it out there: hi, I'm alive, sorry I've been out of touch.

Really, Last Day Of Work? Really? In order to play the latest Virtual Villagers, I have to CONVERT THE HEATHEN TRIBE?!

I mean, the whole series has been a little hinky from the get-go -- can we let the whole "primitive island paradise" thing go already, for the love of God -- but WOW.

Do not adjust your set.

So, I've had this account for eight years now. In internet years, that's practically forever.

Today I backed it all up and deleted almost all of the entries. It's something I've been meaning to do for a long time now -- doing it tonight was due to a number of factors, but mostly I wanted a clean slate.

Of interest to you, my flist:

Give me one of my RP characters and one of yours, and I will tell you-- no matter how ridiculous the pairing-- the following about their first child (if they are canonically a couple with children, I will make up a non-canon child.)
A. Name
B. Zodiac Sign and/or Hogwarts House
C. Circumstances of Conception
D. PB/Appearance
E. Three Random Facts

Beginning as I mean to go on.

dear me
I made one entry in this thing ages ago, which was a deeply boring entry. But after a journalish hiatus, I think I am gonna start posting here.

Therefore: a ridiculous fandom meme.
