Sooooo I ended up finishing this a lot faster than I thought I would, haha. Alucard just wants to nap but his pops just has to rile things up all the time!

[personal profile] aurenare reports that DeNa's last maintenance run just introduced a bug so that every single relic you pull with the Volume 2 Relic Draw is 5*s (a rainbow orb).

Some are boring — Shared Diamond Shield letting anyone cast Protect as a SB is of limited utility -- but others (Sentinel's Grimoire, Ramza's Shout relic, Terra's Maduin summoning relic and so on) are very nice.

No telling how long before they fix this bug, so I can't promise it's still in effect, but I just picked up a bunch of nice toys.

Just saw an article saying that the lead singer of Linkin Park has died, that can't be right. That's a part of my teenage years in human form, that can't be right.

Just some babble about some stuff

After about $500, my jeep now has a new alternator, a new blower for the AC, and a new waiting to be put on driver side front door, on top of the new spark plugs, wires, and air filter. Apparently putting on doors of this particular make/model is a real pain in the ass so I'm waiting until I absolutely have to. I already have someone willing to do it. I'm hoping it doesn't became super necessary anytime soon.

I'm working on an Alucard art piece that seemed so simple when I was sketching it out but which has turned into this really in depth piece. I'm really enjoying working on it; it's not for anything and I'm not really in any hurry to have it finished. So I can kind of meander and play around and see what works and what doesn't. it also helps that I'm working entirely with a blue palette and while blue isn't my favorite color, it's one of my favorite colors to work with (my fave color is orange! Yay complementary colors!). Anyway, ideally it will be finished by this Saturday but we'll see.

Cutting this but it's about John McCain's cancer diagnosis )

This is an experiment with writing. Basically, I've taken one of the many modern/urban fantasy worlds I've build in my head, dropped a couple barely-formed characters into it with a plot idea that might be 7 words long on a good day and pressed Go.

The things I post are barely edited. They may have typos. They're not majorly-high-quality writing, in which I've lovingly labored over sentences and synonyms. They contain far too much punctuation and will probably systematically abuse italics. They're not going to be perfect.

What I want to see is if - and how well - I can build something interesting, something resembling a story, out of these incomplete ideas and fragmented entries. This is word-and-story brainstorming. It's an experiment. I want to try to make something really cool (or at least decently cool) from this nearly nonexistent framework, and see what happens, and where it takes me.

The process is simple: I open up DW during a break at work, and let my brain and fingers go. Whatever happens, I read it over once or twice to correct anything truly offensive, and then make myself post. It's casual, just to practice writing and practice creating to try to get back into the habit.

So, that's what's going on here.

(part 1)

I struck something invisible and ended up tumbling out of the magic onto the front lawn, landing in an awkward heap. Hey, it happens sometimes: in this case, May and Arston had probably changed the wards and I'd have to retune myself. Or, I thought, as I slowly sat up from my pile-of-trash pose and noticed the blinding glow, something more powerful is blocking puny magic like mine without thinking about it...

I probably have more to say about this one, but I have forgotten most of it I'm afraid. (Lex managed to distract me by watching Doctor Who afterwards while I was trying to do a transcription, so my brain has glitched and rebooted to "Wow, that Missy lady is pretty and I have no idea what's going on but she threw the Master up against a wall and now I might ship it."

IN NON-SHIPPING NEWS: THIS THING.

Yeah, I have no ships here yet, just anti-ships. Maybe I'm not well.

Hello my darlings! Lex is showing me Fate/Apocrypha as it comes out, because the Fate franchise is that rare beast: a fandom that we both like.

I am very cautiously excited, because this could be great. I am going to see about rough reaction shots as we go, you may well end up tracking me going through pits of despair as the characters I love die and the characters I was hoping for a gruesome death for get to live past the ending. (I am still not over Fate/Zero or Unlimited Bladeworks, it turns out.) WE SHALL SEE. But yes, this is all written after the fact, so nothing will be in the correct order, I'm afraid, just as I think of it.

Me: It is going to be 25 degrees later and I'll be in work, better wear a cute dress so that I don't cook!
Dress: *is cute, also has straps*
Me: Eh, my body hair is showing but I don't care.
Me: *remembers that I work with baby boomers who would 100% go "Susan, I don't mean to be rude, but..." about it*
Me: ... Okay, fine, but I draw the line at shaving my legs.

The beeb says t's going to hit highs of TWENTY NINE degrees tomorrow, and the building I work in a) was built 113 years ago, and b) had the ceilings lowered to add more floor upstairs and trap more heat. So EITHER, I wash this dress as soon as I get home and pray that it dries quickly enough that I can wear it tomorrow, or just wear a skirt and t-shirt, take an extra shirt to swap into when I get out of work so I'm not utterly revolting when I get to the pub for Pathfinder. Only downside is that that skirt is a lot heavier so I might end up more warm and sweaty.

... Or, do a combo of the two; wear the skirt, let my dress dry at work, get changed after. Boom, planning.

Today my sister came over and together we replaced the air filter, spark plugs, and wires in the jeep. That seems to have helped a great deal, although I'll need to replace the alternator in the near future. Which isn't ideal but you know, oh well. At least it's running for the time being and at least I know what needs to be done.

Speaking of my sister, we've made very firm plans to attend the Saturday of Dragon Con! She wants to see the parade and I want to do the aquarium thing so we're just going to partake in the whole day. I'm pretty excited about it.

I have another Castlevania piece in the works but I'm really tired so I'm probably going to spend the evening watching something. I don't know what yet though, haha.

So I finished FFXV! Quick thoughts:

FUCK CHAPTER THIRTEEN TO THE DEEPEST PITS OF HELL, my god.

Basically, there's like a five chapter chunk between chapters nine and fourteen that is terrible and the anti-fun, but chapter fifteen is trying to convince me that I did like the game really...

So I finished the game! I am still turning the ending over in my head, but here is initial thoughtsI think - and please believe me when I say that I never thought I'd hear myself say this about anything - that it needed to crib more from FFXIII.

HEAR ME OUT, OKAY.

(Cutting for spoilers RIGHT through the game and Chapter 13 Verse 2 and also for "Nah, mate, I can totally fix this, my uncle's a mechanic game designer.")
