At this point, it’s too close to reality to be fun in fiction. :\I was all, “I’ll have more time for being social once I finish this project” except then I opened up a new project…
Also yes I’m finally returning to social media after my work hiatus so time to catch up on everything I missed.I think this rvision actually broke my keyboard but you know what? Still worth it.

@thehidingspot The Rockton series by Kelley Armstrong might be relevant to his interests if he wants outdoorsy thriller/ mysteries!
I’m ending the decade with a film festival of action flicks that I could refer to as the Stathamarathon because he’s in like 80% of them.Absolutely no way Wakanda would enter any trade agreements with the Trump administration.
