Let's see, what are my characters in Luceti doing right now...? I don't go around tagging a whole bunch, but I've been pleased with the few threads I've had unfolding so far.

Finally getting around to backthreads with Leon that were delayed because of the LJ-DW move. He went sledding with Minato and gave a healing ring to Nagisa. I still need to get somewhere with his snowman thread with Claude ... and do something with that idea of a silly Christmas gift between Claude and Leon. So very slow, slow, slow...

Albert is, of course, the most up-to-date of my three. I guess. Ice skating and actually talking to New Feathers. Hahaha. I need to get around to fixing up the coding for lucetilocked for his next post. ...And I need to follow-up on Buffy's gift. Keep forgetting about that.

Walter's currently just existing in two recent threads with Rainbow Dash and Beast. Not sure how he spent the holidays, to be honest, but he likely dealt with them with general indifference. It's that whole "no friends ever" thing. So it's amazing he talks to people at all.

Okay. RP drive has been careening wildly towards the ground ever since the DW move. I stopped responding to Albert's post on LJ and barely tagged around to different posts on DW with Walter and Leon... Nngh, I hate this state of feeling completely unmotivated. I never declared myself off hiatus, but since I posted with Albert shortly after Christmas, I feel like I should be more active.

I think I'll blame the flu I've had for the last week for further killing my RP drive. I've tagged some intros and said hi to a few people, but I've barely looked at Plurk or Luceti... :| Felt very tired today, but I'm past the perpetually-congested phase, so I'm feeling good. Just in time for three work meetings tomorrow! Noooo! >_>

Been playing games a lot this weekend, trying to work my way towards the new games I bought around Christmas time. Finished Zenonia in the wee hours of the morning on Sunday, and I've made it into the Depths in FF4: The After Years. I've just been grinding to get Cecil up to a decent level (and leveling up Palom, Porom, Edward, and Leonora in the process), and trading in my Adamantite for a full Adamant armor set. Whoo!

I decided against getting all the tails and doing the obsessively perfectionist thing of trying to trade in all the tails for special accessories. Bleh. I want to get to Trails in the Sky and The World Ends With You.

...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.

The terrible thing about combining LJ RP and Plurk? All free time goes down the drain.

And when you are without RP drive for awhile? It seems like you have absolutely nothing to do. So, so terrible.

I've been wanting to color icons, write things, make little lists and such ... for a long time now. My current system with RPing has me feeling like there's always this cloud of Stuff to do that hovering over my head. I don't like that feeling; RP should be fun, not work.

I need to do something about that. Not sure what at this time.

I should do more reading, too. I can practically feel my vocabulary slipping away, and I need to sit down and just read something that'll hold my interest and still challenge my mind. I've got several books in my room, but little motivation to crack them open. Gotta work on that.

Gotta work on a lot of things. But I still want to watch things, play video games, chat... Auuuugh. :|

Let's see... Well, we held a wedding shower for my brother and his fiancee this Memorial Day weekend. It was lovely, and the games were a lot more fun than just talking them over with my older brother and a friend (one of the other bridesmaids). It was nice to be social and talk with people I know, even if we had a ton of food leftovers and my mom had to throw away some foods that would spoil quickly. Palabok, pancit molo, all the melon fruits... Gonna have to get through the pancit canton today. :|

Still need to shop for my silver shoes for the wedding. And get my dress and see how much it needs to be altered (probably a lot).

On the RP front, there's another draft that's gonna go down in Luceti. I need to write up my stuff for Albert's plans, but I've got plots/ideas for Albert, Leon, and Terra. Now it's just a matter of getting all of that out in a timely fashion.
everlastingsoul: (Laharl - Slumber on)
I dropped from Damned. /)_(\ I can't believe I did it, and I'm both sad and relieved at the same time. As much as I enjoyed it, I suffered from those periods of wanting to drop far too many times. Taking that hiatus and basically not coming back really showed how weak my willpower was for staying. I'm disappointed, in a way, because the game awards seniority, but I ... don't think I'd be rejoining anytime soon, so it's really not a point to worry about.

Ahab's doing better. The last week or so, he's been developing an extra amount of eye discharge from his injured eye, and I would have to clean his eye every few hours. Today, he managed to clean the dirt by himself. ...Or Cocoa did it for him. I really don't know right now, but his eye is getting cleaned -- and that's the important thing. :|;

I need to sort through my icons here and replace them with ones that better fit different moods. I've just got a lot of ... blah icons now.

On Luceti: The AU event is awesome. I'm looking forward to the plotty stuff going on with Leon, now that the details have been fleshed out a little better. Also looking forward to things with Albert. Terra's kinda floating around right now, doing his own thing, but I'm hoping to get him out and interacting once the festival log comes out. ...Maybe I should toss him at Gold's poker game. It's an intriguing post.

The dreams/revelations will be fun. I've been focusing on Albert (of course), so I have a few ideas there. I'm enjoying this completely dramatic/hilarious what-if scenario in which Buffy and Albert completely misinterpret their dreams and try to break up Jack and Raine. It would be some kinda of dramatic hell once the experiment ended and they had to talk about everything afterward.

Of course, Leon will likely have his own dramatic hell, too. ...And I think Terra will too, since Aqua will be disappearing. Geez, my boys.

In other news, my guinea pig Ahab is sick. His right eye looked really red last Friday, so I took him to the vet on Saturday. The vet said he had a URI and an ulcer in his eye, so he's got antibiotics and eyedrops. ...I'm mostly annoyed that the vet spent all of five minutes looking at Ahab and wouldn't even properly examine his eye because she said it was unlikely he would make it (because Ahab was wheezing hard). My brother said that the vet was just covering her ass in case Ahab did die, but it doesn't piss me off any less since she was pretty darn dismissive.

For the record, he's sniffly but never showed any disinterest in eating or drinking, and he's back to making noises after being miserably over needing eyedrops so often. And his eye is no longer red, so that's good.

...And I'm still using Plurk. Argh. I still need to collect good Plurk memes and post them to my musebox.

First off, thank you to everyone who responded to the last entry. I appreciate it, and everything is okay for me now. And Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. :|b

I really needed that RP love meme boost. It's been a slow, arrhythmic month RP-wise because of all the holiday shopping and other stresses, so I was really starting to close up in terms of RPing and interacting. I'm hopeful things'll be good once we get started with the next year.

Let's see... Lots of gifts this year.

Cut for gift haul )

And now I'll be spending the weekend watching Hell's Kitchen. For the most part.

Finally finished [ profile] book_of_chaos's profile. I ditched the idea of using someone else's profile coding and just jazzed up the actual picture and added a background so I could put words on it. Still debating changing it since I hate the dividing line that shows up when I tweak the browser.

I can't believe he's 16. 8| He's perpetually 12 in my head, and I have to keep track of how tall he's getting. Man.

Hrm... Need to go to the store as soon as my brothers are out to buy guinea pig food. Guess I'll be working later than usual today. I really need to get my act together at Damned and finish that thread with Yukari. u_u But ... Minato. Processing death. What.

...And I need to get over this whole stressed feeling of buying things. This is the one time of the year when I actually buy a lot of stuff -- and not just for me, but for other people. I need to flip that frugality switch off.
everlastingsoul: (Persona - Minato - Death draws near)
So we had a housewarming/birthday party this past Saturday with mostly family. It makes me happy that my family is full of geeks and computer-savvy types; my cousins set up a LAN party with Halo Reach (complete with full-wall projection) while the parents streamed a college football game. My cousins raved about how they love our house because there's a TV or computer (or both) in every room.

One of my cousins let me borrow Alan Wake, which I blazed through on Sunday and Monday. I bought The Signal DLC on Monday and went through that, then watched a playthrough of The Writer since I didn't want to shell out more money if the DLC was as short as The Signal. Considering I can't stand playing scary video games myself, I'm kinda surprised I went through Alan Wake so quickly. But the game gives you warnings and slows down the action to allow you react, which ... really, really helped me for forest sections.

I'm in the process of finally getting around to replaying the Quest For Glory series. I bought QFG5: Dragonfire sometime ago and told myself I'd play through all the other games and import my characters along the way. I've finished as a thief on the EGA version, and now I'm playing as a magic user on the VGA version. I might go back to the EGA version for the fighter, since I recall not being fond of the VGA speed. This will also give me the chance to play the fan remake of Trial By Fire.

In other news, I think I'm in an RP slump. I think the crazy tagging of the Luceti Malnosso mission has left me less than enthused about picking up dropped tags with Albert or starting new ones with Leon. I can't even get the willpower up to write for the new NS at Damned, even when I have a clear plan of what Minato should do. ...I also need to stop looking at reserves and apps; I get this conflicted feeling that I'm not fond of. I hope it'll pass soon.
everlastingsoul: (Laharl - Slumber on)
Ever read one of those stories that intrigues you and keeps you interested, and yet disturbs you and leaves you hoping the situation will get better? Sometimes you're left relieved and somewhat satisfied, and sometimes you're left with this empty feeling that eats at you when the story concludes. At least, that's what I go through.

So I decided to ramble in this entry in an attempt to get rid of that feeling. And yet, I don't know what to do at 4 AM.

...Ugh, it's harder to shake than I thought.

Luceti's on my mind, for obvious reasons to those in the RP -- crazy plot and all that. Vaguely wondering what exactly I'm going to do about the aftermath, though I have some ideas of how I'll phrase what. I could probably have phrased things better in my plot-related posts, but I'm surprised I didn't get any complaints.

I can't really brain about the actual event right now. And the whole "empty" feeling is affecting my mood towards it. But I have liked the chance to get a little more creative again through describing new situations and places.

Need to do more with Leon in the near future. Figuring out his belongings, what he's been doing with his free time, what his frame of mind has been like lately. Slowness, lack of inspiration, and focus on Albert have led to me neglecting the kid. Hopefully I'll be able to think once I'm done with this project at work.

The How's My Driving? Meme

Ummm. I've been watching a lot of random Let's Plays recently. Ended up watching more of TraskNari's stuff, which is somehow fitting since I enjoyed his LPs of the Chzo Mythos so much. He doesn't have an annoying voice to listen to, unlike some other LPs.

I've been neglecting RPing again. Ick. I ... need to learn how to balance my characters better, or just figure out what the heck I want to do. Leon's been quiet the entirety of the mushi plot, Walter's not really active, and Albert's ... something. At least I'm fairly certain I didn't render his character unplayable. :|; That would totally suck.

Attending my sister's ballet performance tonight, then going to my cousin's college graduation party tomorrow. Should be fun and relaxing before I need to do jury duty and everything this upcoming week.

I think my brothers have reached a compromise on the housing situation, which will be a relief if it's true. We had way too many family discussions and private talks about where we would be going after the apartment contract expires this fall, and I think my older brother (who has the biggest complaints with all of us living together) has compromised with my younger brother. We'll see how things go.

Next weekend is river rafting. Hope the weather is good.

And for the Suikoden buffs, a ridiculously detailed idea of how the Scarlet Moon Empire was formed and how Julian Silverberg managed to handle a bloodless coup. It also goes on about Scarlet Moon politics up until IS 299 (Elenor's exile).

Most of this isn't official. It's mostly for reference for my drabbles.

Cut for length. Yeesh. :| )

And more "blah blah blah" Silverberg stuff, this time about the Silverberg estate and the patriarch of the family. There's some references to the Scarlet Moon historical stuff from the above cut, too.

Why do I write all of this again? )

I have nowhere else to ramble about this, so here goes.

I've been ridiculously active with Minato for this nightshift at Damned. I can definitively say that I haven't been this active since his Special Counseling, and it's pretty thrilling to see him actually getting to explore different areas of the institute. I usually just ... sorta forget about Damned once nightshift comes around, and then derp-thread him collecting things.

At least he got his metal for Leon's alchemy, I guess. So it wasn't like I was wasting his nights.

It helps that the event is allowing him to enter all of these rooms, and I'm really motivated to try and get him warped back to his world. Granted, he'll end up in Tartarus, but. Headphones. All his Personas. HIS MP3 PLAYER. And fighting Shadows. Alone.

...Practically alone. He'll have Brook there.

That in itself is another awesome part of the nightshift: his traveling partner is Brook from One Piece. If they end up warped to the One Piece world, Minato will get to see Brook in his skeleton form! The mental image of how the two will react is just ... priceless. Writing with Brook-mun has been very smooth, too; Brook talks enough that I don't feel awkward having Minato respond with short sentences, which in turn speeds up threading.

I really hope they get to warp to one (or both) of their home worlds.

In the mean time, their third warp of the night landed them somewhere awesome. I hadn't expected it at all, since I assumed that they could only be warped within the institute grounds. It's like the mods read the thread, laughed maniacally, and dropped them in Doyleton.

Doyleton. At night. Zooombiiiiies.

In other news, I've been wanting to write something about Luceti since I was inspired sometime last week. I could have sworn I had a file with some written paragraphs, but I can't find it. Maybe I just wrote the story directly to LJ?

I hate it when I do that; I lose track of whether I have backups of stories that way.

In any case, I haven't written anything Luceti-related since that 'Paradise' nightmare scenario. I think I just need to make peace with the idea that anything I write won't jive with Luceti's plot. It can be hard sometimes.

And I'm happy that I could have a little fun with Walter for once. I don't get him out often enough, and I'm thankful Doumeki-mun poked me about them interacting.

Finally got those tulip festival pictures I took last month. Posting a few of them since someone mentioned she'd never really seen tulips.

Tulips ... and kites. )

In other news... Slow as molasses with RP tags right now. Backthreading into forever at both Luceti and Damned. But at least I'm tagging with all my characters. That hasn't happened for awhile. Looking forward to the plots in both games.

So Kukki and I were talking last night, and I suggested that she figure out what she wanted to do with Stella's room in the Ferines house. I started putting something together for Walter too, and got Yosh thinking about it.

And then I started fiddling around with it a little more...

Oh, and I also made a picture of the floor plan in respect to the rest of the village. ...It looks really weird after designing it in the original floor plan's template. Here's the transformed floor plan.

Leon profile pic is looking better. I think I'm almost done with it; just gotta clean up some shading on the clothes. The original, now this. Thanks for the help with the wing shading, Reine~ And the reminder about lighting positioning. ~_~ My brother even pointed at a spot on the screen where I should be imagining the light coming from, and I totally forgot.

...And that's all I had to post about. :|; Maybe I'll do memes later. Dunno yet. Hurray that it's Friday? Actually, hurray that I finished my project a day early.

...Well, I should be doing my taxes, but I'm only slowly making progress. Pfft. Since I'm bored, and honestly kinda curious, I'll open up a question for my RP flist:

List all of your RP characters that you have dropped in a game you're still in. You can also add why you dropped or struggled with them or your current interest level in the character, if you want.

I think it's kinda fun to see past fandoms and who you were inspired enough to play. Let's see...

Cut for Luceti list )

Made by Eggy, ganked from everyone doing it. :|

List your characters. Then pick a trait from each one that the two of you share and explain it. If you don't share a trait with any of them, put N/A.

The Self-Insertion Meme )

Ganked from other people:
Ask me about any character I've played, and I'll let you know what drew me to them in the first place, what I like most about them, least about them, my favorite RP memory (if I can remember it!) and if I'm likely to ever write them again.

And something else I've been thinking about lately...
List any characters that you have considered roleplaying, but never have. Explain why you like the character, then explain what it is that keeps you from playing them, be it a lack of canon knowledge, lack of confidence, or too many people playing that character!

Never Have, Probably Never Will meme )

What an awesome Luceti event. I'm glad to have gotten so many different experiences in the week, even if they were mostly with Albert.

Edit: Finished Ace Attorney Investigations. Just a random thought that isn't a spoiler for the game, but more a thought towards Edgeworth over the course of all the games: Maybe the creators chose the English name "Miles" in reference to the fact that Edgeworth does a lot of traveling? >_>

Big ol' cat scratches on the palm of my hand. My cat wasn't in a good mood yesterday or something and she got spooked while I was picking her up, so she sprang out of my hands and got her back claws pretty deep into my hand. It's already healing nicely, but... Yeesh. Haven't had cat scratches in a long time.

Luceti event's off to a start. A good start? I'm not sure; people aren't flooding flists right after midnight, which had been the trend not all that long ago. Got plans for Walter and Leon, and wondering what I'll do with Albert. I was surprised to hear someone had thought there was going to be Albert/Yuber going on. Stabbing would probably have been involved by the end of the experiment -- and not any sexy stabbing.

Speaking of Albert, Yuber, and stabbing... A Silverberg drabble. Hopefully I won't feel like tearing up this drabble when I go through it later on.
