Terrible Weekend

Although I'm not surprised that the anti-abortion law passed in the 2nd special session, it's still depressing that so many clinics are going to close down, cutting off millions of women from affordable healthcare and any kind of abortion, not just the banned post 20-week ones. Of course the law will be challenged in court, but the prospects for the law getting struck down don't look good. Even if we did win a court case, that's still going to take a long time, and Texas women will be screwed in the meantime.

More AD

Just read this about negotiations for season 5. Yes, please! As much as the timeline frustrates me, I enjoyed the new season and must have closure on the plots involving Tony Wonder and the murder mystery. I also wouldn't mind seeing how Lindsay's campaign against Sally Sitwell goes. It doesn't matter to me if it's another season as opposed to a movie. I wish they'd balance the cast better by having more Maeby and Buster, but overall, I just want more, in any way that they can make it.

By the way, while I was posting old AD fics at AO3, I started doing a sequel to "The Best Man", an old standalone fic. I thought at first that it was just going to be short scene in season 4, and that Gob would walk away, but now it's just ballooning more and more. Feels like I'm walking blind. We'll see how it goes. I do wanna try to revive Far From Over, though, even if it must be an AU fic now. So much to do, so little time to write.

AD timeline problems

Ah, I've found a season 4 timeline that actually makes some sense and tries to give specific months and years when possible. At the end, it points out the big continuity problems like the drone strikes, Tobias's "three weeks" of wandering around, and Pete dying in 2011 but his death being referred to years earlier, before Lucille's trial.

Joined AO3

Well I still can't get to Forever Fandom lately, so I started an account on Archive Of Our Own, and I started posting old Arrested Development fics there. Maybe working on unfinished fics like Missing Episodes and Far From Over will get me inspired to continue them. We'll see.
