Good morning my fellow random response generators! I’m back today with another post, albeit one which I wished I did not have to write.
I have major depressive disorder. I have for years at this point, but lately it has gotten much worse. As you can imagine, this has negatively impacted my writing. I’ve managed to power through and get some done, but I’ve slowed down considerably. It’s just… hard to focus, to get anything done.
Fortunately, it’s not all doom and gloom. I’ve talked to my doctor and I’m now on antidepressants and on the waiting list for counselling. I don’t like discussing my mental health online, but I felt I owed you guys an explanation.
On to the other half of this post!
Next week, I will be reviving Fandom Heresies with a new post: Why Batman Should Be Unarmoured. A lot of people out there, especially on Reddit but even some comic book writers and artists, think of Batman as a poor man’s Tony Stark: walking around in powered armour, tanking bullets and generally being Superman in black. And man is that a bad interpretation of the character. So we’re going to discuss what a detective-ninja should be wearing, why Batman wears what he does, and the limitations of armour. That will come out on Sunday.
For this week, the next chapter of The Amazing Spider-Man will go up AO3. I also plan to get the next chapter of Pokémon Red Version up this week. And maybe the next chapter of Batman. We’ll see.
I’ll see you guys next week!
