There's a work-around, involving hitting save instead of post, but that takes me out of the editor because it's saving the whole thing as a draft. This has been going on for a while, but I just now am trying the work-around, as of today. So if there's some technical difference between a natural blog, an updated block, and a saved blog that can somehow be detected, and someone went through the effort of seeing which was which, well, that's the reason why.
Anyway, stuff that I wanted to blog about yesterday includes an idea for inktober involving drawing Ruby receiving Reese's and the hilarity of it. (Reese's are my favorite candy, thus, are hers.) I'm thinking that'll be my day six drawing, in fact! (As in, what I draw next.) I might have time today, too, because my mom's hogging the computer which she normally never does on Saturdays (she's supposed to be gone, or if not, in her room), and that means I might not be able to do my normal activities.
CF access is more difficult on my laptop, accessing mafia's something I prefer not to do on my laptop, and far more importantly, the stream for movie night doesn't work nearly as well: my laptop's far too slow to handle the stream smoothly, and even if it can, then often-times, the chat doesn't work...when the whole point of movie night in the first place was the socialization aspect instead of the movies for me. (Watching good movies was just a bonus.) Not really missing much, given this is October and a full month of horror which isn't my genre, BUTSTILL...not pleasant.
I also did a little bit of backstory, involving how Ruby's predecessor, the last Rider of Darkness, was killed and utterly annihilated in one of the greatest battles of all history. A survivor of that battle informs Ruby of the event himself, telling her that her predecessor was a lot like her: she stayed low on the radar of others, and was explicitly not one of the main heroes of the battle. (This being a true epic tale, there were hundreds or even thousands of heroes fighting against equal or superior numbers of villains and mainly monsters. And, given this is in the past, that's basically the entirety of the then-superhero population.)
She ended up being a critical role in the battle, though: her sacrifice was what directly led to the heroes' victory, even though nobody knew she had made it, except close associates and friends. Said battle is, incidentally, one of the main inspirations behind the legend of Ragnarok. It was a bloody battle where nearly every single hero died, and every villain and every monster was wiped out. The heroes barely managed to skirt by a victory, at great cost, but there were some survivors.
This apocalyptic event is not unique, and in fact is far from the worst. The battle that inspired tales of Armageddon left no survivors on either side, in spite of having just as many combatants who were arguably even stronger than the combatants taking place in the battle inspiring tales of Ragnarok. The guy narrating the story came to Earth Ridge because it's the current nexus, checking it out thanks to his curiosity, and when he met Ruby, promises her a favor, that he will come to her aid at any time she truly needs the assist, thanks in part to the debt he owes her predecessor.
That's the non-spoilery version, anyway; there's more to the tale, but I'll leave it at that.
