This is going to be one of those rare, LJ only entries!

Hey there! This is one of two posts for x_disturbed_x's story "The Contest", which was created for journeystory Big Bang. You can read the story right here.

Sorry for the quality of this post: I'm tired and still recovering from the con bug.

Also, I couldn't get access to my scanner today (so these were taken with my cellphone), and it turns out that my tablet pen IS INDEED not working after the dog chewed on it, so these pictures couldn't be fixed up just yet. So I'll likely be replacing them soon. Going to have to go over them in pen and then scan them.

Pictures beneath the cut!Collapse )

Keep an eye out over at hellobetafish in order to see the mix when it goes up tomorrow! I am too tired to deal with formatting right now.

So I didn't have Tuesday and Wednesday to work because I was at Universal Studios and Disneyland, respectively. And next week the park is open every day, but my days off consist of leaving on vacation to visit fabulously wonderful people for photoshoots, baking, and waif-ooh times.

And then I get back, have less than a week, and have to leave for ALA.

Basically, today is my last day off of doing truly nothing (I close window tomorrow, am at north gate until 6 on Christmas, but at least I get off at 3:30 on Christmas Eve so I'll have some time then). Thus, I really need to get my butt in gear!

  • Shower cause my hair is grossss
  • start a load of laundry (EVEN THOUGH THERE IS NO DETERGENT. IT'S JUST MIDLY SOAPY WATER.)
  • clean the litter box (I think my sister has a genetic defect where she can't clean anything)
  • Wrap the boyfriend’s presents
  • Change the sheets on the bed to fleece ones (SO WARM AND COZY)
  • When dad gets home, get him to fetch soap from the drain (I KNOCKED MY TINY BAR OF SOAP DOWN THE DRAIN NOOOO) and have him help me fix that thing in my car
  • Get gas
  • Buy things for necklaces and earrings for Waif-ooh and deathly hallows
  • Buy craft paper and wood for Jack Frost staff
  • Buy wig head and other styling stuff (sobbing so nervous)
  • Buy hair dye for myself!
  • If possible start painting the hoodie!


Right then. Time to get started on the day! I'll cross things off as I come to them, but for now, I'm off to start a load of laundry, clean the litter box, and then shower.

A lot of people really wanted to see this post and so I suddenly feel like there is a "no pressure!" situation going on. Wow.

I'm going to ramble on a bit about my history with this story and then I'll get in to talking about the plot.

Be warned: There are going to be spoilers galore! So if you're adverse to spoilers of ANY KIND, even if it's a story you might not even read, then tread with caution!

Current Status: 16.5 chapters written // 82600 words of the original goal of 60k

Ease of access links to sections here:
- My history with "Mwyr" and why I love it so
- Canon history of the world in "Mwyr" (or the world of Mwyr depending on how you look at it)
- Rambling on about the story

history of mwyrCollapse )
Canon history leading up to where I amCollapse )
Ramblings on the current storyCollapse )


Most of the questions that I have revolve around what will happen in book two, so I don't want to consider them just yet--mostly because I don't know how things will proceed with book one. But you will learn more about the Goddess' history, the Ti'Corrah, and the "Song of the Seven Heroes". You'll also get to meet this new race of creatures called the Hatu--another race that is "not supposed to exist yet still does anyway", and Sera geeks out major (he's a history buff).

My biggest problem, as of now, is trying to figure out where the plot is going. Because while the original point of the story was Arika traveling to get home, that's been erased.

Now, I should go and work on the actual story...

I just need to write it down before I forget it. Feel free to ignore. I don't even know if it will make its way into NaNo, or if I'll make a series out of this book. So here we go.

Ew talking about feelingsCollapse )

((Time for work!))

Like I mentioned, I wanted to add a new character in order to make this strange conversation a reality in my NaNo.

I decided that he's a friend of Othello's from university so he's a bit older (probably around Finn's age) and he comes out to see what little Donahue is up to after graduating.

Also, he's the Devil's avatar and he's really just out for Fe's soul.

He told me, quite plainly, that his name is going to be Christian.

I told him "No" because 1) I already have a character named that and I hate repeating names and 2) THAT WOULD BE TOO IRONIC.

He's just smiling and giving me this look like "Don't even try to argue with me we both know that's going to be my name."

Help.

Edit: I was trying to think that, because this story takes place in Tennessee, not every character has to be white (at first this new guy was blonde), and so he went "I can be a black guy!" but that's just too stereotypical! He just does not want to be PC! Work with me here, dude.

Hint: He's still just grinning.

This week is an easy week for me, which is nice. Only working 31 hours or so, but 7 of them are going to be training hours! Bwahaha. But, surprisingly, I have two days off this week! I totally needed it. I was starting to feel burnt out and felt the comings of a cold.

Comings of a cold have fled and creativity has returned! In time for Nano! (so Adonisville and Mwyr need to stop being on my mind).

But, really, I've been feeling very creative lately and writing lots of dialogue scenes. And then this morning (in between chasing my cats around with a squirt bottle) I created a strange world that I would love to eventually incorporate into something. Under the cut.

Because I like to rambleCollapse )

But really I should be concentrating on my NaNo stop STOP THAT ME.

I wrote a dialogue yesterday that I now need to add into my NaNo, only it means I need to create a new character. Which is so strange to be because it has ALWAYS been just Fe, Finn, and Othello. So I don't know if this will be fun or a challenge. Maybe I'll troll the NaNo forums for something. Until then, I should get back to ironing out this plot. I'm going to make profiles for the main three up at Charahub later today.

Well, I need to go eat because my tumbly is all a rumbly, and then I need to be producitve. I wanted to get a haircut and dye my hair today, but I don't know if that's going to happen (well, I need to touch up my hair because my roots are showing but I guess I might not go for the color change I had been planning just yet).

PS this song has been on repeat the entire time I made this post. HOT DAMN I love it. Finally bought it yesterday. Got tired of just repeating it on youtube.

PS 2 I need to make new icons.

Written for: [community profile] casestory
Rating: Light PG-13 for swearing and head-trips

Prompt: Here

Summary:
Trapped in locked rooms in an remote warehouse, nine people have to race against the clock in order to unravel the labyrinth filled with strange puzzles. Along the way they are faced with the threat of demons and text messages from someone calling himself "Zero". Each person has a code name based on a tarot cart, but what happens when two with the name Fool appear? Which one is to be trusted: the bumbling stranger with a disarming smile, or the level-headed young man with a mysterious air? And who is this "Mother" that leaves loving messages promising their deaths? When faced with life or death, the human condition shows it's true face. It's up to these nine strangers to learn to either trust each other or die trying.

I never did come back with that longer post, did I? Oh well. I got home a week ago from Ireland and I am still sort of stuck in the time difference (as in I want to go to bed at 8 and wake up at 5 or 6). Pictures are slowly going up on FB, barely making it to tumblr every so often.

I'm struggling to catch up with everything and have experienced my first fail as an author I was going to make a mix for had her posting date just recently and I had no idea because she never kept in contact with me after I got the rough draft. Well, that's fine. She had four other people claim her story so what's being short one mix? Other than that, I am hanging in there.

Just wanted to jump in and say "hey there". Going to make posts for FBB because I'm behind on that. I can't be faulted for stumbling a bit--I did run Round 2 quite flawlessly imo ahur.

I have the day off, so I shall unpack (FINALLY), do laundry, and work on cosplay (OH GOD OH GOD 10 DAYS UNTIL DAY 0!!!). If I have time, I'll make more posts.

PS: My mom has been pretty sick for the last two weeks, and I caught her cold on Friday. I've got a date of sorts on Thursday (and Friday!) and when I was complaining about being sick, the guy I'm going with said "Well. Get better." and I said "You don't think I'm trying?!" So here's to me trying.

PS2: My sister's commencement ceremony was on Saturday! Today, she turns 22! So weird ugh my little sister is growing up

I am going to make a much longer post later this evening but before I go run off to start laying out my clothes downstairs in an effort to start packing I just wanted to say hi, I'm alive, I leave for Ireland on Friday and I'm super nervous.

Also, I think I'm just going to say "fuck it" to the first 4k thing for the novel because there is no way I can even hope to edit it now or get my 1page summary to something decent sounding. I feel like I've been backing away from a lot of writing challenges (dropping from FBB, this, not taking June Camp NaNo more seriously) but I've just got to realise that I know my limits and I know what my priorities are (editing Wayfarer for the proof copies, packing for Ireland, and maintaining a social life around work so that I don't go crazy).

So yeah. Going to go blast music downstairs while I lay out clothes and then I'll be back later with a post!
