You know what sucks most about long distance relationships? The long distance. (Duh, right?) Actually, the frustration of missing someone so much it hurts is what’s really awful. 
That’s where Rabb.it can help.
It’s more than just video chatting. You can watch Netflix or Hulu together on it. (Kind of like a virtual movie date.) You can also make it a group thing and have a conversation with all your friends. It’s good to have communication options, so check it out.
And for those times when there’s no distance between you: Bedsider.org

My kingdom to someone who can give me a title for the next agents part while I do a final read through. It’s about kidnapping. I always like to mimic the case somehow in the title. Any thoughts?

  • cry ‘havoc’! (and let slip the dogs of war)
  • it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall (credit to bob dylan)
  • miles from nowhere (credit to cat stevens/yusuf islam)
  • went to see a man about a horse
  • desperado (credit to the eagles)

(You should know that initially I was like, “shoot, how do I come up with a title? It depends on where they are in their narrative arc, and I don’t remember when this happens!” and THEN I remembered your handy dandy timeline!)

By way of reparation to Ioan Gruffudd for the Fantastic Four movies, here’s a video of him reciting a poem of Taliesin, the iconic bard of Welsh tradition, in Welsh.

This is so fucking awesome. 

I’d never heard any of Taliesin’s poems recited in full, out loud, with a serious, COOL sense of gravitas, you know? It’s always the sweet, not very dramatic, Celtic Studies postgrads reciting it with perfect diction but no swagger. 

Ioan Gruffud’s recitation gives me goosebumps. It actually SOUNDS LIKE BRAGGING, which, you know, it is. It’s Taliesin bragging. 

I can hear the rhymmmmesssss~ The internal rhymmmessss~
