Moss-troll problem.

What do you call "labradorite" in a second-world fantasy setting?

Fuckit.

*calls it labradorite.*

It's not like they're speaking English anyway. We'll just assume the translator made the substitution when the book came through the time/space-warp.**


If you're maybe noticing that you're older than you used to be, and are feeling sad/angry/confused/worried/frustrated that you haven't accomplished as much as you/other people in your present or past/annoyingly critical voices inside your head think you should have, and if you're maybe feeling something like "I'm not a real grownup like everyone else," and if you're maybe also feeling sad/angry/confused/worried/frustrated that your body isn't working the way it used to, and you're maybe thinking, "if that's true then how am I going to DO all those accomplishments that I/other people/voices in my head think I ought or want to do?", and maybe you're also wondering how are you going to dig out from under the accumulation of habit and procrastination and self-doubt to some sense of satisfaction in your life again, then post this same sentence in your journal.

**I am so naming a fantasy city Far Yttrium one of these days, though. I suspect it will be in the same world as the bustling deep-water desert trade port of Messaline.
