~ Intro ~

 

*Third time editing this hoLy c r o w *

 

What's Going On: We have one more possible help for the Bad FeelingsTM, but don't get to order until early October. I'm really hoping that it works. But this Challenge won't be about that. This Challenge is about trying to get better at living with the Bad FeelingsTM and managing them. Which I've been trying to do pretty much all year and so far, not so much. But I'm trying again because I understand there's a chance they might not ever go away, and I need to be able to function. So I'm re-visiting what I know helps a bit, and also giving some new things a try. The main goal is to hang on and be productive instead of floating in this interim of waiting for potential solutions.

 

There's also heckofalot of school stuff right now. Which is added stress that won't dissipate until it's done, so I really do have to at least manage well enough to actually get some effective studying done.

 

Um...it's basically guaranteed there will be a lot of back-and-forth in this thread from reasonably cheerful to mega-angst to "I-don't-want-to-be-here" and all that...I try to refrain from posting that stuff but sometimes it feels better to tell someone...still, will be trying to manage that better too now the Challenge has officially begun.

~ Set-Up ~

 

Okay, one of the shows I've recently been sucked into is Voltron: Legendary Defender. A friend watched it with serious enthusiasm, but I thought it sounded corny and stupid even if the fanart she was posting was fabulous. Then an acquaintance started to watch it and complained for the first half or so of the series, but then her tone changed and before long she was really into this show an just completely won-over. So I watched it with my brother and we thoroughly enjoyed it, even if there was a nasty cliffhanger. Several weeks later, I'm being buried under plot ideas for fanfictions. Thought I had avoided that, but no such luck. :lol:

 

Anyway, in Voltron, you've got your villain, Sendak, who takes over basically the entire universe and proceeds to rule for 10,000 years. After a certain point, all resistance stops and he's just left to do his thing. Then these five adorable Earth children rescue a guy who just got back from having been abducted by aliens, find a gigantic blue robot-lion, wind up on a foreign planet, find four more giant robot lions, and become the main resisting force against the villain and his army of really cute but also hideously evil minions. So we've got teenagers piloting colorful cats around space while they fight evil purple koala-cats. Sounds intense, right? 

 

These kids are called Paladins and, for the next four weeks at least, that's my class, too. Each Paladin has different skills, flaws, strengths, weaknesses...they also each have their own Lion that they can operate independently, as well as a unique weapon. The coolest thing, though, is when they form Voltron. It takes all five of them to do that, so if even one is missing, or out of sync with the others, it's just not happening. Similarly, it's going to take all of my goals working together to make any real, solid progress.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

~ The Challenge ~

 

Each week, there will be a new Villain to fight, each one stronger than the last. For every Task I complete, I earn Attack Points, which lower enemy Health. In turn, failure to complete Tasks earns Attack Points for the enemy, lowering my Health Points. There are also Bonuses to be unlocked, which will come especially handy in later Battles.
 

Voltron-Legendary-Defender-Voltron-Force

Scoring:

Task Completed = +1 AP

Task Failed = -1HP

 

Combo - two or more Paladins' full Task Lists completed. = +5AP per Paladin

 Form Voltron - all tasks complete. +25AP
Bayard Bonus - Paladin's Bonus Task Completed. = +10AP

Coran Bonus Quest - +10HP. Can be stacked.

 

Paladin's HP are tallied independently. Voltron's is their cumulative total.

HP does not reset between Battles, but may be recovered through Bonus Tasks.

If a Paladin reaches 0HP, they are Unconscious until the next day, and a -5AP penalty is incurred.

If all Paladins lose consciousness, Voltron falls and the Overall Challenge Score goes down.


Downtime:

Even Paladins of Voltron can't always be fighting Battles!


Saturdays and Sundays are Permitted Rest Days. All non-essential Tasks are optional.

There are Five Permissible Days of Weekday Leave which can be used at any time, but not consecutively.

 

If by some miracle an enemy is defeated early,

 

Idk man didn't plan for that.

Following along, and may I suggest you take the question mark off of that tag? From a fellow paladin, you deserve the title, there is no question. You are a Knight of Internal Strength, you fight the battle within, and are far braver than many will ever know.

*Wolfie stalks in and sees Miaulin sitting down, high above him on a cliff overlooking the entire area. With a quick burst of speed, Wolfie sprints up the mountain side, swinging his long, lean body up various rock faces and crux moments. When he finally reaches the top, Miaulin is still sitting there, legs hanging off, swinging slowly back and forth and completely unaware of Wolfie's presence. But all he did was announce himself with a throat clear to get her attention*

 

"Mind if I sit next to ya?"

 

She nods and Wolfie strolls over and takes a seat.

 

"I'm happy to see you! I wanted to let you know that every comment in this thread thus far is spot on. You do possess great power and strength. That's one of the cool things about you!" Wolfie explains with a smile on his face and then continues, "We all ride hard and sometimes we get kicked off the horse, we lose our way and it's different for everyone. But by you being here on NF with the Rangers, you can expose that power and get back on the horse. We will have your back tenfold and we will ride hard with you...if that makes sense. You ROCK, Miaulin." Wolfie nudges Miaulin a little a sees a slight smile on her face, a small smirk, but he'll take it.

Happening:

 

1. Eating has been slightly improved. I think...yesterday, all I had was a smoothie. (That's happened maybe twice? Tracking food will have to be a goal apparently) but today I've had some sauteed spinach/mustard greens and sausage, and also some cookies.

 

2. Yesterday, I went to the library for what is probably the first time this year. My favorite librarians were shocked and some of the conversation was a little awkward, but it was nice to see everyone again. They actually got books two through five of Brotherband, and The Early Years (Ranger's Apprentice books) and the rest of the books in a series that I read book one of years ago. And they had some C.S. Lewis books I've been wanting to read/re-read. Fruitful trip! I've been avoiding going for so long that there have been lots of changes, but it'll be nice to make it part of the routine again.

 

3. Somehow wound up with a theme. It's time to Form Voltron :P

 

4. Finally managed to get some actual cleaning done in the bedroom. Bit of a miracle, actually. It's nowhere near done, as usual, but it's progress.

Congrats on the good start. Apologies if you've already heard of this, but have you thought about keeping a notebook especially for every little positive thing you do/happens for you? Like your personal book of positivity, so when Bad Feelings strike, you have a powerful weapon of light to see you through? I used one a while ago, although I've fallen out of the habit since.

Thanks! :D Yesss, that's actually one of the things I just started doing! Had discussed it in the first version of this thread, but edited before anyone saw it. I have one notebook that's strictly Bad FeelingsTM, to just write down everything that's bothering me without having to worry about bothering anyone or how it sounds or anything, just so it'll have somewhere to go. And then just the other night, I picked up a notebook to put strictly Good FeelingsTM in. ^_^

So Far:

 

Mission: Going well

 

Other Thing #1: :lol: I made it through the entire first season of Voltron without getting swarmed by fanfiction plots. Now they're all swarming me at once. Maybe it'll help me start writing again.

 

Other Thing #2: The self-loathing, "I am a horrible disappointment to everyone ever" Feels have been kicked up purely because there is a slight possibility that grandad is in a bad mood (he left without talking to anyone today) and whenever anyone is in a bad mood, it's processed as "Clearly I've done something wrong". Which is either vain or true. *shrugs* But it's extra incentive to clean everything! Clean house always makes grandad feel better.

whenever anyone is in a bad mood, it's processed as "Clearly I've done something wrong".

 

Ugh, this is the worst feel! I do this every time anyone is upset ever, ever. Even if I WITNESSED the reason for their discontent (stupid driver, little sibling being a turd, etc) I always kinda feel like it's directed at me??? ::sigh:: so frustrating.

Kittiessss :3 aww that's so cool! I wish kitties would show up in my yard...

 

You're very welcome! Yeah, I've been slowly getting past it.

Yesss! We live in a rather rural area, so the cat population is constantly fluctuating.

 

This is the little darling, Her Majesty, Princess Flea. <3

This could probably be a challenge in and of itself!! :D

 

Very true :D I got the list made, though, and have kind of worked out a system for not getting burned out trying to keep in contact with everyone on it. ^_^

Thanks much, mellon nin!

 

EXACTLY. There's just this internal "every bad thing is completely my fault" radar! I decided to try reframing it from "What did I do wrong?" to "what can I do to help?" but don't know yet how effective that will be.
