    Absolutely fantastic to hear! Keeps the candle burning, huh? How you come to find that tech was more your gig?

    And yeah, it's crazy to look back on all of that, but you walk through hell to come out stronger, so even if it had disastrous effects for my life on PC, it was ultimately the best thing to happen in the long-run.

    I'm, like... the exact opposite at the moment. Not much going around here, just finishing up the last class or two of the English major. Some job hunting here and there. But I am impressed with all you've got going on, so long as you're enjoying it, I hope :D

    You and me! My busy month became very very busy and only now I'll have time-no wait I won't because weekend doing stuff with friends as belated birthday/post-exam celebrations. Including going to a Pokemon orchestra concert. :B

    Part of my busy-ness was self-inflicted because I applied for bonus observing and got it with a telescope despite already helping out, so I went to ~24 hours of observing or semi-active 'back-up' observing out of 48 hours. :V And then there was a hailstorm at the place I was housesitting and hence cleaned up after, then a conference, then a workshop... and that's just the last 7 days, I was busy before that too. All the busy.

    Bugger about the words not coming with your remaining scenes. Good luck with forcing them out! If you haven't yet maybe just put those plans for those scenes to paper and if so flesh them out slowly with more detailed dot-points?

    Cool with SPM. Yeah, Luigi talks in TTYD as well (and is pretty darn amusing actually with that). In Sticker Star he's purely background just as a 'find him' challenge in specific levels, which is less entertaining... But here he has the whole Mr. L thing going on too! M&L gibberish is amusing to listen to, as well as how he says 'thunder!'... I also like how he strikes a pose when using that power, heh.

    And what did you make of chapter 6!?! (I think I'm remembering the numbers correctly anyway). (!?!?!?)

    Cheers! Nice emote there btw, haha.

    It was a bit weird that chapter 4 turned into a shooter level at times, but it was still enjoyable, haha. Chapter 5 is alright too, but I prefer Chapter 6. It has a particularly neat theme for the place's location. =) Meanwhile haven't played much M&L past week but I am in the university now. I was also pleasantly surprised to see E. Gadd pop up, complete with Luigi Mansion ghost, vacuum cleaner and music!

    Nano goes slowly. Had a busier start to the month than expected, and not much writing done at all on the days I do uni and karate. And then with birthday I had dinner with friends and all so that took time out. :V Still, if I get 20,000, maybe 30,000 words in the month I'll be pretty happy. I'll try and hit the target today at any rate with a mixture of my main story and then some drabbles before I judge some sppf contest fics. [I should totally count words written for those reviews. :V]

    My project is an original story which I'm still figuring out but I have managed to make some sense of prior to Nano starting. The setting is an unstable world in which plotholes can grow and wreck with logic, but there's a company whose entire business is to resolve these glitches and keep things going more or less. Anyway, one day a guy decides to try and write a story and ends up getting help for it, but said help ends up wrecking stuff badly in the world. :V Going with a bunch of different characters in telling the story. And that's a suitably vague summary!

    How goes your writing? Also your avatar is hella cute.

    I have not. *googles* Interesting... not much info on wiki nor imbd on it though.

    I know there are a pair of composers who call themselves Bob and Bill. Not sure if they or I came up with the names first. =p

    Also, started playing M&L: Superstar Saga a week ago! I'm currently in Chucklehuck Woods.

    Fantasy or Sci-fi definitely!

    I've pretty much chewed through the Card books I could get my hands on and a few other series that were absolutely fantastic (the Gentleman Bastard series? Incredible), but boy my resources are looking sparse and I don't want to jump into something new without an expert recommendation. :)

    I'll take anything you can give me!

    Hey! I'm looking for a new series to read and I know we share a similar taste in genre, so I was hoping you could make some recommendations. Any personal favorites pop up recently? :)

    \o/ It is a great game. Dialogue remains a huge plus throughout the whole game. Give me updates as you go! I love discussing games like these, and there's a lot of memorable parts to SPM. Lots of them.

    Sticker Star sadly drops the story and characters (still has good dialogue and charm to it though!) thanks to executive meddling, but it's still fun for what it's worth. I'm yet to play the first PM game (I figure I might get it on a sale via Wii U eshop). The second one (TTYD - The Thousand Year Door) is absolutely amazing and is a must to play. Fantastic dialogue in spades, solid mechanics, partner characters... SPM lacks those too in a sense (with the pixel characters), but it has a large and solid cast anyway plus four playable characters, so hey. Compared to each other SPM has maybe worse gameplay (down to preference with the style partially), but a better story imo.

    As for the game show bit, idk about the 1st game but there's been one in every other PM game!

    Meanwhile before club nintendo shut down here at the end of September I used stars/coins/whatever it used on the first M&L game for eshop download (among other things), so I'll be checking that out in full... sometime.
