Obviously the next thing that happened was that I got hit by what was probably this winter's flu and spent two days in bed unable to move, which was tiresome and painful. This morning I woke up and the fever seems to have broken so I'm mostly just contending with the mother of all sore throats. It's not great, but it's better than I have been.

While my brain was cooking with fever it was trying to create a weird conflation of magic and data processing where it could file away aspects of things to create... something? So a person or their place in a story would be defined by a the way these aspects were slotted together. This was also to do with magic and also a literal filing system, one of which probably comes from watching Once Upon A Time with [livejournal.com profile] herecirm and the other from... I don't actually know. But every time I closed my eyes for the last two days my brain was back to obsessively filing aspects or deriving them or creating them and putting them in their drawers so I thought I'd note it down. Maybe I'll have a use for this information later, or maybe I'll just look back on it and think "oh yeah, brains are weird when you cook them."

"oh yeah, brains are weird when you cook them."

This is true. Last time I had flu I was convinced that my car had been hit by a meteorite.

Flu is a git. Hope you're soon feeling better.

Thank you, I'm certainly a lot more spry now as long as I don't do anything difficult like climbing stairs or standing for any length of time. Much improved.

I am very interested by the things that brains seem to latch onto when a fever hits- those are obviously strong ideas or they just hook in to something. Mine also had a massive ship which must come from the Martha Wells "Fall Of Ile Rien" books as those are what I've just finished reading...

Erk. Being hunted through the bowels of an ocean liner does not sound like much of a fun flu-delirium dream...

Flu is such an ass, it sounds like we have a similar strain of the flu -.- Feel better soon!
