I just spent something like three hours (during which I meant to be writing) digging through old LJ entries from four years ago, and do you know what I discovered? Although I mentioned the old RPs pretty regularly for about two years, I apparently never actually said anything of any worth about them. Anything, like, you know, actually saying what was going on. *Headdesk*

So I put it to you all, old RP folks - what are your favorite memories of IB/ADV?

And does anybody remember how the heck Tom Riddle got turned into an armadillo? Because that randomly came up in a conversation with a friend yesterday, and I was at a complete loss to explain it.

...Totally unrelated: There are some very upset-sounding young men shouting at each other in the street outside our apartment. I feel it is too early in the evening for this crap.

Okay, this whole not being able to highlight in some entries thing really upsets me. Why? Because I have a semi-compulsive habit of highlighting patterns in text while I read. It's really weird and I can't really remember how it started, but now it's habit, and it bothers me to not be able to do it. It makes me kind of twitchy.

...Yeah, I know, I'm crazy.

In other news, game last night was really fun (many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] jyuu_chan and [livejournal.com profile] stormwolf for lending me the player's handbook, and to [livejournal.com profile] glasseye and [livejournal.com profile] ursule for inviting me!), although I have a slight problem with my character. I had originally conceived of him as sort of... pathetic in personality, but not necessarily in actions. He's gotten by on his own for four years; he's still a bit naive but he's got the necessary skills. So what happens last night? Everything poor Fane did decided to go wrong. A seventh-level paladin should not be able to blow things that badly. :P

Of course, part of it was me mucking up my modifiers 'cause I haven't played in so long. So at least that ought not to be an issue for much longer...

Also, the internet is screwy and won't let me get to the online newspapers and such that usually entertain me. I'm going to be lonely and needy today, f-list: please pity me and give me attention and entertainment? ♥

I really shouldn't care about this... but it just occurred to me that I think I failed to copy over all my old RPG files when I reformatted this computer. I wrote... sickening amounts for that game. I mean, piles of writing. Piles of it. And unless it's backed up somewhere on a CD, or unless the site (which I no longer have the bookmark for, whoops) is still online... it's all gone.

Two years' worth of writing down the tubes. Just like that. I mean, it wasn't exactly genius work, but... still!

I have this horrible temptation to run and copy down all my significant posts from the more recent games, now, just to make sure I don't lose them when the accounts have been inactive for long enough.

Update: This. Fic. Is. Killing me.

Slowly. Painfully. It's beating me into submission, and it refuses to come to a good ending. Hello? How is this difficult? Dear fic: please come to your point and be finished. I know I have a point. I know I do. It is not difficult. But somehow, I can only seem to hold two of the three threads in my hands at any given moment, and as soon as I grab the other one, one of of the two I'd already had slips away. The comparisons all seemed so easy until it came to this last bit! Now it won't go!

Updated again in the interest of not spamming: Oh. Thank. God.

It's done. I don't even care anymore. But I think it's finally done. All it took was a walk to the grocery store, some water and yoghurt-covered blueberries, the boredom of waiting for the bus, lack of paper aside from an envelope to scribble on, and then another hour of angst and distraction. And cat puke, and a shattered egg, but that's another story altogether.

a few more

For [livejournal.com profile] nekokoban - FMA, either Armstrong and his 'symbiote' or Al with kittens. As cute as Al with kittens is... I had to do the symbiote.

Ed's discovery )

For [livejournal.com profile] jyuu_chan - From our old DnD campaign, Tavis and Niamh talking about elves. I apologize for my attempt at Tavis' accent - it's been a long time, and I've never been great chops at writing dialect. *g*

Elves Are Strange Creatures )

I'm not playing all of these currently, but I still count them as 'mine' in my head, to some extent, so I figure it counts.

My characters:
Harry Potter: Hermione, Sibyll (young/old), Narcissa (young/old), Lucius, and young Remus.
Lord of the Rings: Eomer.
Highlander: Methos.

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] the_rocklobster, it's the RPG character meme )

Dear friends-list:

Please stop it with the "DO NOT READ" meme. If I see something labelled "Do Not Read" I will, miraculously, not read. I will also assume you are wangsting and have forgotten how to use the "private" or "custom-friends-locked" functions. If the point is to find the friends who will read it.... I'm not one of them. Plus, it makes me go "What the fuck is up with people today?" until I figure out that it's a meme.

Dear world:

Please give me my left ear back. I've very tired of it being plugged all the time.

Kari and I spent waaaaaaaaaay too much time talking about random shit last night. It was fun. Topics of conversation (as I remember) included politics, religion, Highlander and a very bored Methos attempting to freak out Richie by coming on to him, our characters at IB, and how we'd like to someday play late-teenaged Lucius, Bellatrix, and Rodolphus as the Anti-Trio. And, somewhere in there, how we plan on writing an essay on why het is a Good Thing sometimes, and why some canon het pairings just shouldn't be fucked with.

Me as of yesterday at 2pm: No, no - I don't have time for any new RPs. Nor do I really want one. Unless I could find a sane LotR RP that would actually let me play Eomer... but no.

Me as of 5pm: Okay, I'll hear the description for the new table-top game you're running, but I really don't have time right now, I'm sorry.

Me as of 6pm: I'll think about it. I'm not sure I have the time. But it's kind of tempting.

Me as of 8pm: *Has a character fully statted up, part of a backstory written, and is grumbling about how character sketch isn't coming out the way she wanted.*

....Damn. That really didn't go the way I planned it.

In other news, Methos is adorable. And Duncan is hard to draw.

so evil

Writers, actors, and role-players must all have some aspect of the sadist in them.

There's something horrifically fun about watching your character's whole life and world-view come crashing down around her ears.

This is just a short link for those of you who can't understand why I call Amanda's Lucius "adorable." Sure, it's IB, not one of the RPs that I'm in - but that's just so wonderful.

Who could read that and not love him at least a little bit?

Also, I have been bitten by the fanfic-bug. Hopefully tomorrow I will post the first chunk of a fic I'm writing. I figure that posting it here will actually ensure that it does *something* other than just molder in my computer files, forever unfinished. It's Lord of the Rings, book canon, and set after the War of the Ring. It focuses on Eomer and, more generally, the Rohirrim, through the eyes of Lothiriel, the daughter of Imrahil, Prince of Dol Amroth.

No, I am not making this shit up. And no - she's not a Mary Sue. I'm actually doing my best to stick to canon... where it's possible... ;)

Went to bed early last night and *still* slept in too damned late.... oh well, hopefully this'll help get my rhythms back on track in time for school. I have to get up at 6am on Monday - eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwww.

Anyway, I had a very cool New Years. Went to 's place (oh, what an amazing view of the fireworks we had!!!) with and , who very kindly allowed me to crash at their place for the night, and even fed me (bonus!)! *grins* I got to see their pictures from London, too, and got a totally EEEEVIL Tolkien quiz book for Christmas. Some of these questions are just mind-boggling - woohoo!

It's still snowy here... I'm hoping there'll be snow up on campus sometime soon so the other halflings (Dora, Terra, Cora), Sean, and I can have a snowball fight. That'd be terrific.

It feels weird having left Petrificus, but I'm looking forward to the new RP that I got suckered into - it looks to have some great potential, and I've wanted for a while to play Narcissa. This is gonna be fun.
