The Tick, Season One

My introduction to The Tick came in the late 90s, with the animated series. A few of my grad school friends and I would get together each week, eat Pillsbury cinnamon rolls, and watch The Tick (and a few other shows.)

I loved it. I loved the humor, the silliness, the undermining of superhero tropes, and the overall sense of fun.

This was my background as I logged onto Amazon Prime to watch their live-action take on The Tick.

It felt like the entire show was filmed using the same Gritty Angst Filter they used on Batman v Superman. They managed to make The Tick almost entirely joyless.

Spoilers follow…

*is buried*

Got buried under homework. Doubt I'll see the light much before December. Also still working as a pharmacy tech. Expecting to self-implode there soon. (Not planning to, but my track record says something is going to happen there, soon.)

I'm in two English classes, French 102, Classics: Roman Spectacle, and Geology.

And it's not going well. Not at all.

I just... am falling apart physically and mentally I'm not doing well either.

I still haven't had my sleep study done, and it's been months. And I've noticed that I'm still falling asleep in class, even though my first class doesn't start until 10.05am.

I just want something to go right....

I... What? How? Wait... I'm... I'm... speechless... o.O

I really don't know where to start... o.O And hence it’s taken so long to post this…

If you don’t get that it’ll be spoilers under here, I don’t even know… SPOILERS!!!! )

ETA: Congratulations to Mel, chosen by the Random Number Generator to win the ARC of Terminal Alliance. And thank you to everyone who donated.

Two weeks ago, Sophie received advance review copies of Terminal Alliance. I’ve been meaning to do a giveaway, but I was struggling to come up with a good way to do it.

Sophie with Terminal Alliance ARCs

Then I started seeing the damage reports come in from hurricanes and flooding. The devastation they’ve left in their wakes, and the devastation yet to come. A million people without power in Puerto Rico. Record-breaking rain and flooding in the southwest U.S. 41 million affected by flooding and landslides in South Asia.

And now I know how I want to do this giveaway. You want to win an autographed ARC of Terminal Alliance? There are two things you need to do.

  1. Donate to one of the organizations helping with disaster relief.
  2. Leave a comment saying you donated.

I don’t need receipts or anything like that. I trust you. And there’s no minimum donation, either. I know money is tight for a lot of people. If you can afford to give $100, great. If you can only afford $1, that’s great too. It adds up, and it all helps.

Here are some organizations to consider, though this is in no way a complete list.

I’ll draw one winner at random toward the end of next week.

Thank you.
