...Man, choosing an icon for this post was kinda painful. Maybe I should actually spend some time updating icons here. :|;

Nothing much to talk about! Got a raise at work to go along with my new responsibilities, have employment until at least December, and still living with my siblings in a rented house.

Still playing at Luceti. Somehow managing four characters right now, and playing with the idea of apping at another game. I keep tossing back the pros and cons, especially since I know four characters can already be difficult to balance. There's going to be a freaky Halloween/Majora's Mask event for this next week, and I've got some ideas I might use.

Considering doing NaNo this year. I'm totally skeptical about actually getting anything done between work, RL, and RP, but it did help me move a fanfic forward a little bit last year. Maybe I'll do that again this year? ...At that rate, I'll finish that fanfic in about six years. XD Bah, we'll see. I'm out of practice.

NaNoWriMo's over. I managed a little over 6700 words. Pfft. But that's still more than I've written for one story in over a year, so I'm still proud of what little I did. I'll work on improving my writing habits so I can do better next year.

Under the cut is the first section of the story (Suikoden fanfic) I wrote for NaNo -- tentatively called "Shards" or "Chaotic Shards" for now. No editing, no revising; I just let the writing take me where it wanted to. It's interesting how the story became divided by perspectives along the way; it had happened before I realized it. I still need to decide if I'll post this thing once it's completed or in finished Revolutions.

‘Plotting’ has such negative connotations. )

Finished Final Fantasy XIII a few days ago. I can't muster up the desire to go back and play out the missions I didn't finish, now that I've finished the game. Oh well.

Video game lists for my records )

Also blazed through re-watching The Colony and all of my Mythbusters DVDs. I need something else to play in the background while I'm working. Hrm...

NaNoWriMo

So NaNoWriMo starts up in a few hours (in this timezone, at least). Good luck to the people participating. :|b I don't think participating this year will be very ... conducive to my current level of motivation. 8| I have trouble enough finding enough motivation to write drabbles, so 50k in a month is kinda ... daunting.

So while others work on cracking out novels (as per National Novel Writing Month), I'll be trying to crack out ... drabbles. I've got two themes in mind: revisiting Suikoden Chaos and exploring AU ideas in the form of a broader The Infinity idea. If I can actually get this multitude of ideas out coherently, I'll consider the whole thing a success.

...To spare the likely drabble spam, I'll probably find another place to post the eventual messes. *will have to think this through in the next few hours*

edit: Drabbles will be posted on [livejournal.com profile] starlight_tears.

Tiiired...

Just bought the three Mario & Luigi games on a whim. It started as frustration over not being able to find a working Superstar Saga rom for hours last night, and then not being able to get past the level up screen... And now I've got Superstar Saga, Partners in Time, and Bowser's Inside Story coming in next week.

It's kinda dangerous, buying video games on a whim. :|;;

I finished a new drabble for my Silverberg storyline, but I'm not happy with how clunky the action writing is. I can do one-on-one fights, but multiple attackers versus one is awkward. I kinda just want it finished so I have the setting in place; I intend to use the Grasslands for at least three other drabbles, though I only have vague plot ideas right now. Gotta get Caesar and Hugo's reunion in there somehow.

Luceti rambling )

And I'll end with a meme I ganked. :|b

Reply to this post, and I'll tell you one reason why I like you. Then put this in your own journal, and spread the love.

Why is it that, every time I comment on something in one of my LJ entries, I want to do the exact opposite? Like, as soon as I mentioned how weird it would be for me to consider writing an original novel right now, I get ideas. What the heck, self. Do I just want to prove myself wrong or something?

And whaaaaaaat. Why do I have an article on this wiki? Did they just pick everything and everyone out of FF.net and slap it up there? 8| Man, it's not even my good fanfiction anymore. 2007 was forever ago. Maybe I should be going "fuck yeah!" that I got the name "Athena" in that wiki.

...With that detour over, the original story idea involves combining two or three past Epic Novels I had used and not been able to flesh out. One story's magic system, another's plot and characters, another's ... land. Maybe. Probably take one story's characters and make them the gods of that universe. One of the lovely things about writing fantasy is that you don't need to dig too deeply into the sciences behind cloning -- magic is just awesome that way.

It'd probably loosely follow what little I'd mapped out in RPGMaker a few years ago. Man, I need to get another copy of it so I can work it again. ...Just another distraction I'd be adding to my pile of stuff.

I also want a place I can RP Albert. Luceti's great and everything, but sometimes I feel so out of sorts with what's going on flist/plot-wise that I want to find something else to do. Kinda the reason I joined Damned. But Albert's my favorite character to play, and I ... don't really want to throw him into another game because that'd require canon review to get his "original voice" back. [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun is too much about the mun for me to put Albert out there, too. I wish Caesar was still around, but life's such a kick in the pants sometimes. Why so selfish, self.

Someone wanna help me revive [livejournal.com profile] gensodressing and make it inhabitable? :|

Post the first line from your 25 most recent fanfics and try to find a pattern.

...This includes everything vaguely drabble-like I've written, since I don't write many fanfics at all anymore.

Cut for length )

So what can I get from this? I use concise introductory sentences -- sentences that will pull the reader in. Uh... This list supports my claim that, once I've started a new fandom, I don't (or rarely do) go back and write about the previous fandom.

...Most of the sentences can come across as slightly ominous, too.

Augh

In a writing and RPing funk. What the hell just happened?

It's like everything just drained out of me.

...

Oh well. Whatever.


These lyrics reminded me of [my] Walter even before I could understand everything being sung.

This constant longing for your touch
This bitter ocean of hatred and pain
This loneliness I need to be who I am

The oceans are as alone as I
Somebody take away this gift of mine
No charisma for the beast! But still I love you forevermore

Well, as of today, I can work from home. I had my VPN access approved and was given access to my e-mail account again, so everything's shaping up to get this deadline done from home. I just need to wait for the files I need to edit.

ToDR kink meme is going hilariously. Tinyma and Youngdyle's wedding night. The tragedy of Vaclav/tree. The many requests for porn. Yikes.

Prompts requested: 2
Amount of requested prompts fulfilled: 2/2 (huzzah!)
Prompts fulfilled for others: 2

List of characters I've RPed, more for my information than for the meme... )
everlastingsoul: (Albert - Lack of compassion)
I have this inexplicable desire to write a funny/parody-ish Destroyers fic that devolves into random acts of ... perverted crack. Example:

Luc: ...
Sarah: ...
Albert: ... And thus my plan is sound on all levels.
Luc: ... Albert.
Albert: Yes, Master Luc?
Luc: I cannot, for the life of me, follow a single word you're saying.
Albert: I thought I was speaking in layman's terms already--
Luc: No, that's not it. ... Nngh. Sarah, you explain. *pinches bridge of nose*
*very awkward pause*
Sarah: Well, you see, Albert, it's just--
Luc: *explodes* I can almost understand why you are holding a whip, but why is Yuber naked?!
Albert: ...
Yuber: ... You caught us at an ungodly time.
Luc: It's eleven in the morning!!


Sigh. I'd kick myself in the head if I was able to.

Writing meme thing. I'm apprehensive about posting this because my writing's been slipping in quality for years.

1) Do I have a distinct style of writing?
2) If so, what exactly is it that defines my "style"?
3) Would you say my stories usually follow a 'theme'?
4) Is there anything I really need to improve or change?
5) Does my style (if I have one) remind you of anyone else?
6) Judging from whatever writing of mine that you've seen, what do you think is/are my strength(s)?
7) What do you think is/are my weakness(es)?
8) What would you rate my writing overall on a scale of 1-10?
