So, I'm playing with nail polish and working on this style:

I'm not sure it's worth the effort, to be honest. XD I've finished my right hand, but am sort of "meh" on doing the left. It's not a lot of work, but even using painter's tape, the lines aren't perfect.

And Apa remembers she has a DW account for things other than museboxing with [personal profile] temples. Eheh.

Hi guys, I luf you.

So, I have this one friend. I don't tend to spend all that much time around her, because she's kind of neurotic and self-centered after a while she starts to drive me up the wall. But, overall, I didn't think she was so bad. Lately, though, she's starting to freak me out a little.

Every week, I head to the apartment she shares with a really good friend of mine to hang out and watch Game of Thrones. Aside from the fact that she really likes to tear into some of the female characters, this arrangement has been more or less enjoyable. She's not caught up on all the books yet, but just recently finished the fourth (after a long bout of complaining about how boring it was because all her favorite characters weren't in it -- when they introduce a handful of really cool characters you could easily become interested in!). So, she knows what happens in the life of Theon Greyjoy.

Summary that is as spoiler-free as I can make it: Theon is torn between to worlds, really wants to be a part of at least one of them, and so he makes a lot of really bad decisions to try and gain acceptance. He does some questionable things, and then lets people believe he does even worse things, but eventually, he falls into the hands of a truly sadistic character who beats and maims and tortures him into a dissociative break. (Said sadist is a Bolton. Boltons like to flay people. Sadist likes this more than the average Bolton.)

Last night's episode dealt with Theon's first Really Bad Decision. My friend gets so angry and says "he deserves what happens to him".

.... a little freaked out, now.

Incidentally, not even Robb would have wanted that. Even Catelyn is repulsed.

Dear Friends of Mine Who are Male:

Stop posting sexist pictures on your Facebook. This includes pictures that compare the "beauty" of two or more women. This also includes pictures that you take that you post with the intent of criticizing the clothes/fashion/etc. of a woman you don't even know. It's absolutely none of your business, and it's insulting.


No love,

So, I put up a musebox: [community profile] diansbud, in case anyone would like to play. :D

And last night, in my adventures around Amalur...

... I ran around a fly-infested midden heap, taking earrings off corpses.

There is not much joy to be found in this game. Seriously, the only happy that is ever directed at you is when you fill someone's request, which is usually made in desperation. So the happy is more like relieved gratitude. My companions suck, too. One's an alcoholic and the other's a ~mysterious elf~. And they only show up in places that are important to the main plot. Otherwise, I travel alooooone. All alooooone.

I've come to the conclusion that Amalur would be perfect if it incorporated the party system of Dragon Age, where the companions have personalities and also talk to each other. I like games that are something like interactive fiction. Mass Effect and Dragon Age are good examples of this. Like choose-your-own-adventure, but in digital form. Skyrim and Oblivion were lovely, but the games are so open that I feel a little lost. And no one you meet really has a personality. (Especially not your character.) On the flipside, games like Persona and Tales of Vesperia are also fun, but maybe a little too structured for me to call them my favorite game type.

Not that I won't play the next Elder Scrolls, Persona and Tales of games when I get the chance. But I've finally played enough video games to kind of figure out what is really going to make me happy as a gamer.

For anyone who was interested in the writing challenge [personal profile] valleyheart and I were talking about, there's now a community where you can post your writings!

So, Oli ([personal profile] valleyheart) and I were thinking of a good/fun writing challenge:

Fairytale adaptation.

With lesbians.

Ideally, I think we're thinking of longer stories, but, whatever you can write is also good! The only hard and fast rule is that the traditionally heterosexual couple must be two women.

Beauty and the Beast - [personal profile] valleyheart
Cinderella - [personal profile] temples
East of the Sun, West of the Moon - [personal profile] prefacing
The Little Mermaid - [personal profile] diciassette
The Sleeping Beauty - Sandy!
The Snow Queen - [personal profile] demiurgic

Comment and tell me what fairytale you'd like to do. Come ooooon, I know you want to.

Edit: Completely open to all! Please share with everyone! And if you need help picking a fairy tale, try skimming the Wikipedia Category and see if anything strikes your fancy.

I thought about doing this on Plurk, but realized I could do a much better job here!

So, it's been about three weeks since I started back up with journal RP and the most important thing is I am enjoying myself. There are things about playing at Marina that I really did miss (the other players first and foremost). I am having a little trouble managing my tags, keeping up and prioritizing, and suchlike. Good to know that hasn't changed...? orz

But, since I feel like being fluffy, I'm just going to gloss over that part and mention a few reasons I love playing in Marina's DGM cast:

- Kanda's canon update
- Allen's canon update
- Link
- Road
- Tyki (and Tyki's canon update)
- If I ever need a prop or side project for Lavi, I have the luxury of picking anything that seems both useless and interesting

I might have to sit down after the anniversary plot and sketch out a personal plot for Lavi -- a loose one, but something to work him toward, as a canon update for him isn't in the cards just yet. The thing I want most is for him to be a part of what's going on with the others, even if most of them aren't going to tell him details. This is on me to make sure he's paying attention.

In other ramblings, I love playing Hawke. And I miss playing C.C. And I'm still settling into Castle with Tsunpire, but so far, I really enjoy Treva's Fuuma. :)
