    still cheaper in the medical bills later on tho, probably :)

    [–] Can gluten intolerance come on suddenly? savagestarshine 6 points ago in glutenfree

    get retested before you try cutting out gluten! it's super hard to get good results after being gf for awhile.

    one of Mother Winter's knitted Unravelings was a confirmed possibility. good luck getting another one though

    seems a bit goalpost-shifting to me, but i can also see the fine lines you're drawing. as long as you have those same lines for snow white & sleeping beauty, it works.

    he does definitely think about saving murphy while fighting the nightmare though. it's part of the "upping the pressure makes the reward feel bigger" of storytelling, if not just part of harry's "i'm gonna fail so big if i fail omg omg fuckfuckfuck how to do this i'm gonna feel so guilty if i live through this but person x dies or gets their toe stepped on" ego complex.

    if harry had the poor level of self-control you're talking about, he'd have burnt himself to a cinder long long ago.

    i think part of the problem is the standard author problem of having to describe people every time the main character meets them per book, for the readers that haven't read previous books; it comes across as harry almost losing his mind every time boobs appear, but i think in the "reality" of the story, he's just telling himself to not look at her boobs.

    the annoying part about this for me is how everyone is at least pretty or above. i get the fae & the white court, and yeah wizards are healthy-looking, but damn near every lady human that isn't 20+ years older than harry is hot or adorable somehow.

    book 3 the nightmare gets ahold of murphy & dresden has to put her into a non-dreaming sleep so her soul doesn't get too torn up. she's asleep 'til the end of the book, loses a lot of self-confidence, but gains it back in book 4 when she "puts on the boots" vs the chlorofiend etc at the walmart garden center. a nice little character arc, really.

    Evil Bob was super fun to fight against, look forward to that if it happens for realsies

    [–] Your Gripes savagestarshine 2 points ago in dresdenfiles

    the back & forth goes on more than that, but it does calm down for awhile in the middle there. i even liked her at that point

    well it is a refreshing break from all the bitching and moaning. just well-timed & lucky, really

    [–] Your Gripes savagestarshine 2 points ago in dresdenfiles

    oh thanks, that actually helps. :) i'm still working on a reread; it's been awhile.

    because Murphy is a mess. i'm sick of the "don't trust harry / do trust harry / don't / do / don't" mental flip flops. She also has come the farthest from her principles. She's lost and has been from the start, but still judges people like she's pure as snow. She's a cop/someone who thinks they have strong morals who has a fling with an assassin, just as an example. The fact that she's "good people" who comes through in the end is damn near her only redeeming feature, sometimes.

    Seperately, & this is more an issue with her happening to be the face for a problem and less of an issue with the character herself- I dislike Butcher's sloppiness in her fighting style. She's a master of Aikido, which is 100% pacifist, but Butcher writes more like it's Judo. Seems nitpicky maybe, but I really love the pacifist part of Aikido & hate it getting misrepresented.

    tbf about Butter's arc feeling rushed- the books are from Harry's point of view, & Harry hasn't hung out with Butters for a long time, at that point. We don't get to see what Butters has been growing in response to.

    I agree though, it does seem off.

    he shared some Coke with Mister in the first book (at least, i'm still rereading). wtf, it feels like damn near animal abuse

    [–] My mind pretty much the entire time reading Skin Game *no spoilers* savagestarshine 7 points ago in dresdenfiles

    Harry's been out in the city a lot, prior to this phase. People do parkour in the city. The internet is not all life, and the media films shit that people actually go do. They even have parkour gyms for gods sake. It's completely reasonable that he's run across it "irl" so to speak.

    in what way is bruce wayne average? he's still hella smart, determined, strong, trained, yadda yadda. i think you mean "unpowered".

    [–] Conditioners savagestarshine 1 points ago in SebDerm

    where the fuck did you hear that we're not supposed to use any? we just need to be careful about what we use.

    According to sezia.co the shampoos & conditioners for Pantene ProV "Daily Moisture Renewal", "Radiant Color Volume", and "Sheer Volume" are ok. I use the sheer volume set.

    [–] What's that one product that is completely worth your money? savagestarshine 1 points ago in AskReddit

    i haven't tried this, i just watched a lot of cooking shows.

    maybe the pan isn't hot enough yet when you put in the eggs? cast irons take a damn long time to heat up compared to non-sticks because of how thick they are. if the pan is hot enough, the egg kinda cooks at the point of contact & makes a skin between the rest of it & the pan, so it doesn't stick. if the pan isn't hot enough, the egg runs everywhere & makes a lot less/ weaker cooked surface/skin, so it sticks more.

    the back room is messy as fuck because at that moment, he & justine are trying to stay apart. *(i think thomas was maybe a bit emo at that point too, about feeding).

    the white beetle isn't a yacht because at that point in time, his funds were limited by his sister.

    i did forget that the white beetle had been through a battle or two, fair point.
