You guys, I have like forty questions. And they are all ridiculous and only half are in the format I was expecting and, just, I HOPE YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU.

I left out a few “write a story” prompts because I am now sick and did not feel like going back and filling those in. So I will do that later.

So first, the character list!

1. Severus Snape, potions professor, Harry Potter
2. Toph Bei Fong, twelve-year-old blind earthbending master, Avatar: The Last Airbender
3. Ged, archmage and thief, Earthsea
4. Han Solo, smuggler and general, Star Wars
5. Attolia, queen of the country and also woman named Irene, Queen’s Thief
6. Lucy Honeychurch, young lady and piano player, A Room with a View
7. Holly Short, elf LEPrecon captain, Artemis Fowl
8. Jayne Cobb, muscleman and sniper, Firefly
9. Kyouya Ootori, high school junior and shadow king, Ouran
10. Britomart, cross-dressing female knight, The Faerie Queene
11. Alistair Theirin, Warden and bastard prince, Dragon Age
12. Noah Puckerman, ladies’ man with a sweet voice, Glee
13. Scarlett O'Hara, lady and businesswoman, Gone with the Wind
14. Bishop, ranger and scout, Neverwinter Nights 2
and a fandom repeat,
15. The Cabbage Man, a merchant, Avatar: The Last Airbender

seriously, Nessa? Seriously? )

Well, that was exhaustingly fun. I hope you enjoyed!

When you see this, post an excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

Since [livejournal.com profile] spellcoats was nice enough to tell you things about her WIPs, I suppose I will at least tell you fandom, unlike last time, when I just let you guess.

Also, these excerpts are longish. Oops.

(p.s. I have 24 files open right now. Some of them are also the same as last time. Oops.)

(p.p.s. I have spent at least half an hour on this, when I could have been...WRITING.)

(p.p.p.s. oh damn I forgot to include this one.)

(p.p.p.p.s. I am doing NaNo this year! I'm just not touching the forums. Except maybe to use the Fantasy Dare thread to jog my juices.)

fanfic that will probably never be finished, but has salvageable parts
most of these are RPG-related )

fic I will probably finish one day but it is taking a while
these are also RPG-related )

these are not )

original works
somehow I forgot I was writing this one )

all of these are from NaNo projects, oops )
jade_sabre: (hp:  NOT MY DAUGHTER)
I say to myself, Self, you ought to write the Lay of Laemira, and sing her praises, and let everyone know just what kind of ridonkulous playthrough you had hint: you suspect very few people go the route you did ever, let alone on their first try. It's more a completionist route than anything else.

And then I move from my PC to my laptop and in my head Morrigan espies a drunken Alistair, and then Quark is sleeping, and an hour hour and half later I have two three pages written, and help.

oh wait I think it finished itself, oh good.

...Jak I completely blame you for my love of this trope. IT IS CERTAINLY JAK'S FAULT, AND NOT MY INNATE LOVE OF KIDFIC.
jade_sabre: (artemis fowl:  otp)
that I just bought Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex but SEEING AS I AM DOWN TO ONE (1) ARCHDEMON IN DRAGON AGE and REALLY OUGHT TO BEAT IT BEFORE I SWITCH FANDOMS ON MYSELF I have NOT YET BEGUN TO READ IT, even though the book flap includes some line about EMBARRASSING LOVE CONFESSIONS TO A FIESTY LEPRECON CAPTAIN and I MIGHT HAVE DONE A LITTLE DANCE IN THE LINE AT BOOKS-A-MILLION (and Goose, to her credit, stamped her feet when I let her read it).


(in other news: [livejournal.com profile] jakia, I finally finished the Alistair smooch fic I was working on for you! Now it just needs, uh. Polishing and posting. Um. Yeah. Yay I finished something!)
jade_sabre: (superior:  overly enthusiastic glomping)

omg Talladega Nights was FRICKIN' HILARIOUS

also now Casablanca is on
mmmm Claude Rains

times i have punched quark in the face: 1
times quark has played "this little piggy" with my toes: 1
times i have discovered twincest fic on quark's laptop for her viewing pleasure: 1
times quark has protested to this post: 1000000000000



it is epic and awesome though

jade_sabre: (lotr:  éowyn pensive)
so I've played through the Landsmeet, now, and I won't get to play again until next Monday probably, so now I will put on some reflective music (post about that later?) and reflect!

alert! lots and lots of meta follows. Also, my perspective on some of the following stuff might change once I beat the game; we'll see what happens.

on Laemira )

on being an elf )

on being a mage )

on Landsmeet, and Laemira's decision )

on the Teyrn of Gwaren and his daughter )

on Alistair's character )

on the romance )

SO BASICALLY, IN SUMMARY: I love this game, a lot, because it gives me so many options and so many things to think about and doodle with in my brain (and Zevran! I...think I love him more than Alistair. My feelings towards Alistair are complicated these days, as you um. Might have noticed), and because it's really, really good at sucking you in and making you feel a part of what's going on, and I should probably just hurry up and join the fandom and post these thoughts, which have probably been said before, in one of their comms, shouldn't I. OH WELL. I HAVE COUSINS TO BABYSIT AND AN ARCHDEMON TO DEFEAT AND FIC TO BETA. Time to go to bed.
jade_sabre: (does not approve)
if my roommate ever sees this, she will despair. in fact, judging by the tone of her email, she's already despairing, but, you know, I tried?

anyway [livejournal.com profile] rashaka posted this and it is literally my life for the past week. Down to the hour on the clock in the last picture. I feel better knowing other people do the same thing...and worse knowing that it never goes away. OH WELL AT LEAST I AM PREPARED.

/what do you mean, why are you on the internet when you have stuff to do.
jade_sabre: (potc:  bandana will)
1) did anyone else actually love all three of the POTC movies? I mean, I'll admit the second one drags and the third one is ridiculously convoluted, but I love the ridiculous convolutedness, and the way the stories turn out, even though Norrington's problems all stemmed solely from the fact that the writers decided to screw him over. I just. Really love the canon.

2) apartment searching is the pits and we are going to be homeless and broke and waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.


also like, dude, I played through the female city elf opening just for kicks, and dude, I was actually furious. Like, yelling at my computer screen, wanting to punch a pillow angry. So well-done, but ARGH.

also I love the fact that as an elf you can hate on humans all day long in the dialogue options. No human-curious Dalish elf for me! I KILLED AN ARL'S SON, BITCH.

(quark: and you were telling me about all the terrible things he's doing and I was like, oh God, I think--I think I freed him.)

4) why are custom mood themes so much effort. I don't waaaaaaaanna get a photobucket. That being said, my new layout/theme pleases me greatly. I just want to play "Part of Your World" on repeat and cry contemplate things.

5) All of the movies on TCM today are about, like, unrequited love and the crazy things women will do to overcome it. Thanks, TCM. Thanks a lot.

anyway, back to gathering up the nerve to call people. w-wish me luck?

lawlz fic

jade_sabre: (avatar:  subtle kiss)
1) Year-old Zutara fic! Woo!

2) this line will not leave me alone:
"I am a mage, Alistair. And they wish to make you king."

/angsts all over everything with her tiny broken heart

3) RASHAKA, YOUR FIC IS LANGUISHING ON MY HARD DRIVE, BECAUSE ZUKO'S VOICE FLED MY HEAD AND REFUSED TO RETURN. I am marathoning season 1 on Saturday, though, so hopefully I will be able to finish it.

Alternative Title: Gone to Ferelden, brb.

three days ago
Jade: Lo, Dragon Age Origins is on sale! I shall purchase it for under thirty dollars! [livejournal.com profile] jakia's fanfics will finally make sense to me! Praise the...Maker? Is that the deity in this game?

an hour later
Jade: Finally! It has loaded on my computer! ...what do you mean, I'm missing a DirectX file? What kind of deity is this Maker guy anyway?

only good things can follow! )

last time, we played canasta )

so I've been here for seven and a half hours... )

more recent quips )

omg this game. Runs so much better on her machine. But I don't even care. It is so good, and I am so happy it is in my life.
