Having the flu and severe allergies at the same time is never fun. Can’t sleep. Can’t breathe. Can’t really run around and do things, yet I have to really run around and do things. I may be down, but I am not out.
Thankfully, my mind is still running at more than full speed. Although the things I think…
If you’ve been to the theatre lately, you may have seen this little animated film with Rock, Paper, & Scissors teaching how wrong it is to bully and judge others. It’s so cute! And it got me to thinking about Sheldon Cooper’s Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock…(and if you need that explanation, I am including the video…)
When I woke up at one in the morning, for some reason, I thought about another variation that even Sheldon would play.
The Avengers version of Rock, Paper, Scissors: Hammer, Fist, Palms, Arrow, Shield. Okay, I figure that Thor’s Hammer could knock Hulk’s fist away. Hulk’s fist could easily take the brunt of Iron Man’s energy pulse shot from his palms. Iron Man’s palms could shoot a pulse to knock out any of Hawkeye’s arrows. And Cap’s Shield would just beat all. Because, you know, #TeamCap. (Sorry, I haven’t thought of a great one for Black Widow…or Ultron…or Scarlet Witch yet. It’s probably sad enough, that we don’t play shotgun around these parts when claiming the front passenger seat…We play CHEWIE. Because if your riding in Mille–so named for the Falcon–only Chewbacca can sit there.)
This is the sort of things I think about when I’m ill.
Which can be great. Like at three this morning when I finally realized what other twists I could add to the new story I’m plotting out. But, do I thank my ill mind for making a breakthrough or do I credit the new musical score I’ve been listening to. (Motion Picture Scores = Story/Character/Location Creation for me.)
The Batman (bleh) vs. Superman score by both Hans Zimmer (Inception, Batman, Man of Steel scores) and Junkie XL (Divergent score) has been PERFECT for this story that still has a teetering title. The drama, the action, the moments.
It’s all unlocking. It’s almost genius how three unrelated stories are combining into one awesome megalith of a tale…that I still don’t know if it will be one [probably] long story or broken up into multiple stories. There’s still a lot of plotting going on, but it’s getting faster and faster as it comes together in my head and in my journal.
I’m excited about this story! So as the sick days drag on, I hope to finish typing out “Hey, 6B.” I have a few CP chapters to tackle. And I hope to have compiled enough ideas to do a rough plot of chapters…though I know I may never adhere to the initial plan. Oh, and type out another review for the Lunar Chronicles series.
Hope you all are well and avoiding this Flu bug…
