I'm making a couple of cds for my dad for his birthday, and one of the files is being kinda slow. So while that's doing that, I shall do a meme out of sheer boredom.

Okay, I'm officially hooked.

My PS3 is everything I thought it would be, and more. No, I'm not just saying that. I'm absolutely serious! I've got two games I've been playing, since Devil May Cry 4 is still in the dorms, and I am absolutely in love with them. I bought Dead Space a couple days ago, and had planned on getting Assasin's Creed since it was only $20. But then I saw Unreal Tournament 3 for the same price, and you all know my addiction to Unreal. So now I have three games, and I have some thoughts to share...

Dead Space - Gunz will appreciate this. I can easily see the influence Bioshock had on this game. The story, thus far, is basically something horrific has happened on the spaceship Ishimura and you need to figure out what happened. You and the members of your flight crew were attacked by things later referred to as Necromorphs soon after arrival, and at first it's only you and two others still alive. Then one gets lost, and it becomes apparent that something is horrifically wrong with the human survivors you find. I've seen, so far, 1) a nurse talking to a corpse and saying she was waiting for me; she keeled over shortly after I received something from her, 2) a guy banging his head rhythmically against a pipe then committing suicide by slamming his head into it, 3) a nurse slicing into a screaming patient with a bonesaw before slicing her own throat, 4) genetically-modified fetuses floating around in this green goo, and 5) disappearing body bags. They're there one minute, then gone the next. Scattered around, you also find audio logs that tell brief snippets of what has happened and similar text logs. Furthermore, you have the ability to use certain psychic abilities as a part of your weapons. Thus far I have Stasis for slowing down time (good for malfunctioning doors, puzzles, and freezing Necromorphs in place for easier disposal) and Kinesis (telekinesis; heheheheheh...). What I really love is that the emphasis is not on headshots or main-meat shots; it's on dismemberment. The Necromorphs are really limber enemies, and the idea is to shoot off limbs for maximum damage and ammo conservation. Sometimes a headshot won't do a damn thing! Very bloody, creepy game. Love it so much, and I only started playing it last night.

Unreal Tournament 3 - Nothng much to say about this one, though I LOVE the way the graphics look. Even better, not all of the arenas are new. I've found at least two that are from the Unreal Tournament I already know and love: Coret and Deck 16. There aren't any Rippers in this version, but damn! The other guns more than make up for the loss of one of my favorites!

I'll report on DMC4 when I get back to Hollins and play it. Although... most of you can probably hear me shouting about it from down the hall...

Got mostly useful stuff for Christmas (who the heck wants that sort of rubbish under the tree? We want DVDs, CDs, and the like!), but there were a few notable exceptions...

1. Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn w/ Throne of Bhaal expansion
     - Dad owed me a new one. I now have a backup for SoA, and FINALLY can finish playing through the triology again! Now if I can just find my own copy of the original Baldur's Gate game...

2. Flying Monkeys catapult gun
     - Dad bought a Chuck-a-Duck for himself, Stacy got a similar gun that chucks pigs, and I got this. Novelty gifts, anyone?

3. Digital Keychain
     - Finally I can have a Guilty Gear or Devil May Cry keychain instead of stalking through the conventions in the hopes of finding one by chance.

4. Kung-Fu Panda
     - Was not really expecting this. Plenty of other movies would have preferred to get, though admittedly I did like this one. But aunts never quite understand that their nieces do get older and stop wanting kid movies after the age of fourteen.

And finally....

So Nekocon was fun. I spent a helluva lot more money than I should have, but hey, I'm not really complaining. There's still some left in the bank. I have a new Dante action figure, plus new anime DVDs. Finally completed the Devil May Cry anime series, as well as Haruhi Suzumiya. Wasn't able to find Petshop of Horrors, dammit. Or a copy of Azumi 1 and 2. Really love those movies. I did see a movie called Kasumi, but that wasn't exactly what I was looking for. Gratuitous sex scenes are all well and good, but I'd like a little story to go with it, please.

Actually bought the first Bible Black dvd, but returned it so I could get the Advent Children Reunion Files compilation book. Me giving up hentai for FFVII. Jeez, I'm such a geek.

Kicked ass in the gaming room. We didn't get there in time for the Guilty Gear X tourney, so I was a little disappointed by that, but I still had a lot of fun just taking on all comers in GG:XX Accent Core. I was one of only two girls who played the game there, and the other girl only came and played a few times. I spent hours just beating all these guys. It was fun seeing the looks on these guys' faces when this girl dressed as Zato-1One sits down and calmly kills their best characters within a few seconds. On Friday night, I held court undefeated for about fifteen to twenty rounds before I got distracted by my cell phone going off and wasn't able to guard against an Overdrive attack (I think it was the killer Zappa player; he reigned supreme until I managed to get him with Axl-Low, one of the characters most GG gamers agree on as being a weak character. Oh, the look on his face...) that finished me off.

Fondest memory of those hours: when Zappa-guy went up against me at one point, I picked Venom to play against him. There were four other guys standing around watching us at this point, and when Zappa-guy groaned that Venom was even worse than Axl, one of them commented that "you can still beat her!" At that point I glanced back and realized that they were all against me. Yes, I was a little miffed about that. But mostly, I was flattered. I'd heard a couple of those guys grumbling about being beaten by a girl when they handed the controller off to somebody else, and I had come to Neko with the goal of showing guys exactly what a girl gamer could do. Success!!!

I managed to keep the undefeated seat on Saturday, too, until this Chinese guy came along, picked Potemkin, and destroyed me. I wasn't upset, though, because it turned out that this guy had gotten third place overall in the GG tourney at Otakon. I was actually holding my own against him until he started grabbing me again and again and again with the Potemkin Buster and Airbuster attacks (cheap, cheap, CHEAP!!!! That move takes away something like a third of your overall health whenever it's used!). There was another guy from Otakon there who managed to beat him a couple times, but in the lower-tier players I was the only one to actually beat him. I didn't defeat him, since he still got two wins to my one and the round went to him, but I actually managed to beat him! I can hold my own against one of the best players from Otakon, and I haven't even been playing the GG series for a year yet! HELL YEAH!!!

*ahem* Moving on...

So I had a lot of fun. It was great seeing my ex-roomie and one of my best friends again, particularly since the latter is moving soon. I'm really going to miss him, but I hope he makes it in Vegas. We both laughed it up and catcalled the screen 'till 1 in the morning at the yaoi panel. I kinda wish I had gotten a picture of him in his Riku cosplay before he left, but no luck there. Oh well. I'm just glad my Zato cosplay turned out so well. It wasn't as good as I would have liked, and I want to tweak it a little before next year (trying for Katsucon rather than Nekocon) by getting actual boots and putting elastic in the arm-things, not to mention finding a more comfortable way to flatten my chest, but other than that it was cool. Better than I had expected for a last-minute throw-together.

Pretty amused at the goings-on in D&D during my absence. A crazy cupid shooting everybody with love/lust/soul-mate arrows, causing orgies in the streets? Our fangirl bard getting married to her great grand-uncle because of a love arrow that hit both of them? Violet rain? I hit the floor laughing. Not so happy that our royal charge is dead and there's a grass-killing, unbelievably evil, unidentifiable guy coming towards us, but I can't wait to see what's going to happen next. Mayhem, madness, and sadness, if I know our DM.

I have a backlog of things to do, since I spent all weekend at Neko. Stuff here, stuff on fanfiction, school stuff, writing stuff, friend stuff... I also need to get over not offering insight and actually talking to people. You'd think the anonymity of the Internet would make me less shy than I am, but no such luck. Hell, being shy and not talking is probably the entire reason why I don't have a boyfriend at my age. I'd talk more if I just knew what to say. There's one person in particular I want to talk to, but I just don't know quite what to say without looking stupid.

My music collection has yet to be returned to me. Jesus confiscated it (actually, I lent it to her) before I left for Neko, and she glomped me twice last night, telling me that she loves my music. Sad part is, that's only some of my music. I left several cds back at the house when I left for college, just because I didn't have room. She actually got a little play-mad with me because, apparently, I had music she really could have used for the Otaku dance party.

And here I thought she was the music-master on the hall...

Doesn't matter, I suppose. I've gotten a lot of music off her, too, among other people. I'll share my cds, so long as people take care of them. My little sister is not among those people, not after what she did to several of my discs (found Pulse at the bottom of a Lays chip bag, scratched and gouged the hell up...

I want to get cracking on the next chapter of my post-apocalyptic story, and I've got a couple ideas for what's going to happen next. Returning that SUV to the rental, for example, is going to be fun. You can't exactly tell an irate dealer "I'm sorry, but all this damage happened to your vehicle because a manticore landed on top of it and we had to kill it." The next big deal is getting the characters to HQ and getting the next stage of the story in motion. I've put in a few seeds of the plot thus far, but I don't think anybody's really caught them yet.

The joy of obscure prologues...

Well, I have only five minutes until registration opens. I leave you now so I can stare at the computer and wait for the lines to open.

Honestly, I'm not sure what I should think at this point. How do you prepare yourself for somebody's impending death? Especially when they're still alive and outwardly healthy?

My Pawpal was diagnosed with colon cancer several years ago. He survived, and the doctors didn't think it would come back. But this summer, he was diagnosed again. This time, the cancer was in his spleen and possibly lungs. Scans and tests revealed that it was definitely there too, and was inoperable. We've been waiting three fucking months to see if it was treatable with chemo or not. The one piece of advice my mother gave me before I left for Hollins was that I should bring something appropriate to wear to a funeral.

So last night she tells me that the tests finally came back. The cancer is treatable, but... Pawpal has decided not to undergo chemotherapy. The chemo made him horribly sick last time, due to some reaction with an enzyme or something like that,  and there's only a 30% chance of survival with chemo in colon cancer anyway. He's decided to spend his last months in comfort, and just die.

I can appreciate that he wants to die in comfort and without being miserable. I remember how sick he was during chemotherapy before. But I just can't shake the feeling that he's giving up. I didn't think it would hurt this bad. I've known for a long time that he was probably going to be the first of my grandparents to go; he's always been really frail due to diabetic complications, and he only got worse after the first bout with cancer. He's mostly-blind, and has been for about as long as I can remember. I think the man is something like 89, 91 years old. But he's also my favorite grandfather, and unlike the other one he doesn't have Alzheimer's, so he actually remembers who I am. He was a Korean War vet, a survivor. He once told me how important it was to live and enjoy life, to fight for it.

Now he's just giving up and waiting to die.

This isn't how I thought he was going to go. I mean, he'd already beaten this! He was doing just fine! He'd beaten the damned cancer six years ago! And it's moved into his spleen and lungs and is killing him now. It's just not fucking fair!

I'm going to go to class now. Maybe Dante's Divine Comedy can help me forget this, if only for a little while.

Since I'm bored before class and have nothing better to do... I think I'll try this with varying fandoms.

Pick ten characters without looking at the questions, then answer the questions.

1. Dante
2. Cloud Strife
 3. Legolas Greenleaf
4. Sephiroth
5. Xemnas
6. Arwen Evenstar
7. Minsc (and Boo)
8. Pyramid Head
9. Deshwitat Rudbich
10. Kairi
11. Zato-1One
12. Venom

1. Have you ever read a Six/Eleven fic? Do you want to?

The chances of Arwen ever meeting Zato are zero to none to the billionth power. But then again, I wouldn't be surprised if somebody out there wrote one. Thankfully, I haven't run across it yet. Though how you would write a fic between an Elf who loves a Dunedain ranger and a human assassin who now hates women thanks to the woman he loved betraying him, I have no fucking clue.

2. Do you think Four is hot? How hot?

I think it's become quite clear that I think he's hotter than the Sahara by now. Moving on...

3. What would happen if Twelve got Eight pregnant?

I don't think - scratch that. I know - Venom wouldn't touch Pyramid Head with a ten foot pole (no pun intended). But even if he would, he'd get ripped to shreds. Pyramid Head doesn't like babies.

4. Can you rec any fic(s) about Nine?

I've never been on the Manga section of any fanfic site. Never really cared to find out.

5. Would Two and Six make a good couple?

Well... If you could get Arwen before she fell for Aragon, and convince Tifa to chase after somebody other than Cloud, not to mention get them on the same world... I could see it happening. Aragorn's pretty angsty sometimes, and Cloud has that in spades. I think Arwen would like that.

6. Five/Nine or Five/Ten? Why?

Xemnas/Kairi. I prefer him with Saix and her with Sora, but I could see it happening. Xemnas might bang Kairi just so he can get Sora even madder. Besides, they'd make a cute couple. Underage, yes, but cute.

9. Is there any such thing as One/Eight fluff?

Pyramid Head? Fluff? Surely you jest! Dante's ended up in Silent Hill in a couple of fics, but he's definitely never done anything even remotely related to fluff in that setting!

10. Suggest a title for a Seven/Twelve hurt/comfort fic.

"Boo will Comfort You." Just the idea of Venom holding Boo (a minature giant space hamster who is apparently the brainy one of the two) is enough to break my brain. And the events leading up to Minsc even letting him hold Boo would be epic in their own right.

11. What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted Four to deflower One?

Just envisioning that has broken my brain... Date-rape drug? That's the only thing I could think of. And I don't think that's going to happen, anyway.

12. Does anyone on your friends list read Seven slash?

None of them know who Minsc and Boo are!

13. Does anyone on your friends list read Three het?

The only other person I know who reads fanfics only sticks with HP fanfics. And the other Legolas fangirl on the hall wouldn't dream of it.

14. Does anyone on your friends list write or draw Eleven?


15. Would anyone on your friends list write Two/Four/Five?

Umm... Actually, no.

16. What might Ten scream at a moment of great passion?


17. If you wrote a song-fic about Eight, which song would you choose?

"Cop Killer" by Public Enemy

18. If you wrote a One/Six/Twelve fic, what would the warnings be?

"Warning: the pairings in this fic are guaranteed to break your brain. Crossovers gone wild!"

19. What might be a good pick-up line for Two to use on Ten?

"Can you hold my heart?"

20. When was the last time you read a fic about Five?

Two months ago.

21. What is Six's super-sekrit kink?

She has a thing for scruffy rangers with really long swords. She loves feeling their whiskers against her skin.

22. Would Eleven shag Nine? Drunk or sober?

No, I don't think so. Desh only likes women, and while Zato hates women there doesn't seem to be any clue that he decided to enjoy men instead. Venom's love wouldn't have been quite so unrequited if he had.

23. If Three and Seven get together, who tops?

I can't see that happening. But if by some weird chance it did, Minsc would get top (assuming he even knew what to do. He has taken a few too many blows to the head, after all). He'd probably think Legolas was a woman. And Legolas would probably kill him for even trying to shag him, or at least castrate him.

24. "One and Nine are in a happy relationship until Nine suddenly runs off with Four. One, broken-hearted, has a hot one-night stand with Eleven and a brief unhappy affair with Twelve, then follows the wise advice of Five and finds true love with Three." What title would you give this fic? Name three people on your friends list who might read it. Name one person who should write it.

I'd call it "Broken Devil," and I can't think of anybody I know who would read that thing. I wouldn't, for that matter. As for who would write it, no clue. Nobody I know writes yaoi crossovers with guys who canonically aren't gay.

25. How would you feel if Seven/Eight was canon?

Sullied and unusual, but also extremely amused. Pyramid Head, Silent Hill's psychotic executioner and rapist, with Minsc, the addled ranger with the so-called miniature giant space hamster that he asks for advice? If anybody can make that pairing work, I'd love to see it!

Dearest Mother,

As you recall, I have been searching for my father ever since I departed Velmontya six years ago. My search has taken me across the continent, but of late I have been in Arleuth, following a vague clue I uncovered in Lelbai. Following a string of events in Tanoduen, during which time I was hired by Queen Vestalya to protect her youngest son and found myself under subsequent capture by King Persanius in Ibandrith, I have become involved with the war between the two countries. More personally important, however, I have met a man named Kamen, who is a Spear of Kambior.

The trouble is that he is not an elf. Nor does he match the description of my father, which you told me.

I am a full-blooded high elf. If my father were human, I would be a half-breed. Understandably, I am at a loss right now. Initially I had believed him to be a different Kamen, but he has done several things that would indicate more than a passing interest in my welfare. For example, he had one of the clerics traveling with his legion (the Spears finally decided to side with Arleuth in the war! They sent a legion to battle the king, but... I know not what happened, but somehow the overwhelming majority of their number were slain, seemingly all at once. King Persanius has demons at his command, and is a Disciple of Hezroulan! He slew his younger brother in a ritual for the Dark Tyrant! He attacks the Arleuthians because he believes them to be demons, and possibly to begin a conquest of the North!) give me a bracelet with many charms on it. The charms are the symbols of the gods, and it is magical, though what it is and what it does, no one can say. Furthermore, while he has given no indication that he knows my possible identity as his bastard daughter, he has made a few comments that seemed suspect, particularly following my second escape from Ibandrith with one of my companions and the foreign prince King Persanius has used to replace his own brother. I realize the Spears protect those unable to protect themselves and aid the helpless, but this Kamen left us a bag of gold after leaping into the sky on the road to Yalsen. More surprising, along with the gold was a signet ring (I cannot guess what family, house, or position the inscription means) and a letter. I have not yet read the letter, though I am uncertain why. I started to unfurl it on the road, but something stayed my hand and caused me to reroll the scroll and put it away. It sits beside me on the desk now, the candlelight flickering over the vellum as though taunting me with the answers it could contain, answers to the questions I have had for so long, yet I am loathe to reach out, pick it up, and read its contents. Perhaps I am afraid? 

Yes. I suppose I am.

The gold he left did not benefit myself alone, so I do not count that as anything more than a Spear aiding those in need. But the bracelet, the ring, and the letter? The words he used? They tell of something more personal than simple concern, or fulfilling one's duty. And there is one more thing that stands out in my mind. When one of my companions, Pherynike, described the Kamen her friend Serk had traveled with as being an elf, this Kamen replied that it was no good being an elf when you were fighting them.

Mother, I have to know. Was my father a shapeshifter? Is it possible that this Kamen and my father are one and the same? I am so confused right now. I need answers, but...

I am afraid of exactly what those answers may be.

Your daughter,

I almost forgot. Mother, the boy who has been living under the guise of King Persanius' younger brother is royalty himself, a prince from a distant continent! His name is Hendrix, and he is a charming little fellow. I liberated him from Ibandrith because the king has been abusing him badly, much the way I was treated by the rest of the family, and I do not wish to ever see another child suffering such cruelty. I am concerned of the repercussions, as he said he has attempted to flee before and the king has always retrieved him, but I will fight to keep him safe. We spoke on the road, and I told him I would someday take him to Velmontya. He is about Merydae's age, and I know he would like to meet her, and she would enjoy his company. He's delightful. As I stated previously, he is royalty, albeit from a different continent; I am certain that my uncle would not pursue the marriage alliance with King Persanius he was contemplating once the king's true nature is revealed. Do you think it is possible that he would consider betrothing Merydae to Hendrix, once they are of age?
