ARGH, okay, so I am going to finish that final chapter of ATVH TODAY. But, I am running into a problem. Essentially there are two parts to this chapter: one is great, and I am really satisfied with it. The other seems… hasty, rushed, pointless, really. But it serves as an almost framing piece, to set things up, to set things off. I can’t just get rid of it, but I don’t know how...

Mass Effect 3 Ending (Spoilers)
Catalyst AI: Ah, Commander Shepard, welcome.
Commander Shepard: All right! Still alive, made it this far, bring on the final boss! Is it Harbinger? Tell me it's Harbinger. I finally get to punch Harbinger in the balls!
Catalyst AI: No final boss. Only final decision.
Commander Shepard: ...Wait, you mean the last enemy I get to kill this trilogy was Marauder Shields? That's a bit of an anticlimax. Eh, no big. I'm all killed out this week anyway. Okay, so what's my big decision?
Catalyst AI: Door number one - you control the Reapers, and it kills you and destroys the mass relays!
Commander Shepard: ...Pass.
Catalyst AI: Door number two - you destroy the Reapers, and it kills you and destroys the mass relays!
Commander Shepard: ...Well, I like the idea of destroying the Reapers, but that deal's not sweet enough for me. Pass.
Catalyst AI: Door number three - you combine organic and synthetic life together, and it kills you and destroys the mass relays!
Commander Shepard: ...Y'know, for a trilogy that's selling point is all about getting to make crucial decisions and their different results, I can't help but notice how Hobson my choices are here.
Catalyst AI: You MUST make a choice! There is no other way.
Commander Shepard: Sure there is. I'll just wait for my crew to rescue me. Amount of times I've saved them, it would be only fitting them for them to finally pay me back.
Catalyst AI: No! You must make a choice! It is the only way!
Commander Shepard: Yeah, who says so? You? You haven't even told me what the point of all this is. Why do you make the Reapers kill everyone anyway?
Catalyst AI: It is the only solution. Without the Reapers, synthetic life would eventually destroy organic life. It is inevitable. This preserves the balance.
Commander Shepard: ...So, your perfect solution to prevent synthetics from wiping out organics is to have synthetics wipe out organics?
Catalyst AI: ...Yes.
Commander Shepard: I gotta tell ya, Cattie, that's a really great plan.
Catalyst AI: You think so?
Commander Shepard: Oh yeah, I love this plan! I'm excited to be a part of it! It's just like when I was worried my house might catch fire, so I burned the thing to the ground, just to be safe.
Catalyst AI: Hey! It IS a good plan! Organic and synthetic life cannot co-exist!
Commander Shepard: What the hell are you talking about?! I just made peace between the Quarians and the Geth. The Quarians! And the GETH!
Catalyst AI: ...Nuh-uh.
Commander Shepard: Yuh-huh. The Geth value free will. They were willing to let the Quarians have their homeworld back, just so they'd be allowed develop freely. In fact, the Geth are even helping the Quarians resettle and bolster their immune systems to free them from the suits, so those two are co-existing the SHIT out of each other.
Catalyst AI: LALALANOTLISTENINGNOTLISTENINGTHEYCANNOTCOEXISTLALALA!
Commander Shepard: Psht. Tell that to Joker and EDI. Those two are probably boning as we speak. ...Heh. "Boning". Get it? It's because his bones are, oh right, you don't know him.
Catalyst AI: Enough! You must make your decision and destroy the mass relays!
Commander Shepard: Fuck no. Destroying a relay causes an explosion the size of a supernova. I'm not gonna cause a nova in every inhabited system in the galaxy. No, if this is the situation, I'd rather my crew rescue me and we look for another way.
Catalyst AI: YOU MUST MAKE A CHOICE!
Commander Shepard: Oh fine, if it'll shut you up. I choose to destroy the Reapers.
Catalyst AI: Destroying the Reapers will also destroy EDI and the Geth.
Commander Shepard: ...What? Why? ...How?
Catalyst AI: Because. It... will. Just, y'know. Because.
Commander Shepard: But they're three completely different entities. Okay, the Geth I can buy, MAYBE, because they have some Reaper code in them. But EDI's nothing like either of them. And you do realize that EDI isn't that body, right? EDI's the Normandy and that body is more like just an extension of herself she projects. To destroy EDI, you have to destroy the Normandy (again) and why the hell would destroying Reapers destroy the Normandy? That's like saying the fall of Berlin would kill Winston Churchill and wipe out the US Navy's Pacific fleet. I mean, that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard, and I've seen the endings to both Lost AND Battlestar Galactica.
Catalyst AI: ENOUGH! YOU MUST MAKE YOUR DECISION! BIOWARE DEMANDS IT!
Commander Shepard: Fine. Wow, I bet the next playthrough is gonna suck knowing none of the decisions I make will have any bearing on the ending whatsoever, huh.
Catalyst AI: Any last words?
Commander Shepard: I'm Commander Shepard and this is my least favourite spot on the Citadel.
hopefulsinner replied to your post: Sometimes I feel that students don’t so much write… I want you to know that I spat out water over this LOL! Mission accomplished, then!! XD
Wow, sudden influx of followers! Uhm. Hi!
Sometimes I feel that students don’t so much write their papers as they have huge, body wracking seizures, and sometimes random slams of fingers on keyboards just happen to bang out some words.
Digging this oolong tea: Formosa Bai Hao. Pricey, but totally worth it.
Anonymous asked: Where da chapter at?
Just got home from teaching… Completely fucking dead from exhaustion. Also, I am constantly astounded that students don’t know how to read Shakespeare. Didn’t everyone at least have to read Romeo and Juliet in high school? Come on guys, Hamlet is not that difficult. So, stuff my face with pasta, am scrolling through tumblr but am also falling asleep at my desk. time to retire...
Roasted garlic and potato soup and garlic bread? It’s a good thing I’m single now and have nobody to impress because goddamn I am going to have the worst garlic breath ever.

From a student's paper:
“Without [justice] the world would be a mess and chaos would be happening all over the place. There would be war and crime happening everyday and everywhere.” WHEW. SURE GLAD WE HAVE JUSTICE. NO WAR AND CRIME HERE, NO SIR!
hopefulsinner replied to your post: The reason I hate grading papers the most is… get stamps made of the comments. BOOM increased productivity WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THIS BEFORE????????
The reason I hate grading papers the most is because the students always persist in doing EXACTLY WHAT I TELL THEM NOT TO DO. All the goddamn time. And I just get tired of writing the same comments, providing the same feedback. If they’re not going to even make a fucking EFFORT, then why should I bother grading their stupid shitty papers? A waste of goddamn trees is what it is.
