  • Might actually work on Siorc's profile soon bc I found a pretty css freeie. But, no promises.

    I'll probably test it out and see how I feel. I don't care much for the fancy stuff.
    So, I'm thinking of trying something fun this summer: assortment anthologies that are related to fantasy & lesser ideas that couldn't be their own book. Mostly just Siorc drawings I wanna make canon but don't want to go full ham on.

    Man this attachment is a lot bigger than I thought it would be sorry about that, lol.

    All good.

    In any case, right now I'm working on a time travel with a twist idea. So, that's fun.
    Siorc's birthday has come and passed
    The innocent will never last
    Wake me up when May, June and July end.
    Like his birthday has come to pass-

    Okay. I'll stop with the Green Day parody.
    Siorc's birthday was yesterday. Went to a garden & wrote a song (on Thursday) & anthology yesterday.

    Next is 1,000 days anniversary, (5/2).
    I think I'll finally work on Siorc's multiverse profile soon.

    But now do I condense an oc with nearly 2,000,000 words of content for into bite sizes?
    Welp, it seems I'm writing a big lore (trauma) dump chapter this week...so that's fun. Not about Siorc, though, it's about one of my Fontaine oc groups.
    Palamon
    Palamon
    We're both on the same page then, lol. Last time I did a trauma dump was two books ago now before this.

    Oh, you did? I don't think you mentioned that, actually. How did you like it? I think the Fontaine quest is my favorite in terms of writing.
    gimmepie

    I liked it a lot! I enjoyed the trial stuff and the various layers of the plot (not to mention all the new lore we got). Neuvillette is cool as hell and a very interesting character and Furina's whole deal is exactly the kind of psychological tragedy I'm always here for. Plus, I thoroughly enjoyed the way the Fatui were represented in this chapter. It certainly made the organisation as a whole very ambiguous morally where previously they've been painted much more negatively. I do admit that the last little bit with the Narwhal felt paced weirdly though.

    I think Sumeru is still my favourite leg of the game overall right now as far as the quality of the writing and depth of the lore/worldbuilding, but Fontaine probably takes second. Mostly I'm just impressed with how every new chapter feels fresh and the narrative has yet to do much re-treading of anything or get stale.

    I'm now staring to think once we get to Snezhnaya, we won't be against the Fatui anymore and we'll be the 10th Harbinger. But... with 4.6 is Arle's World Boss, so maybe not entirely (but I think we're not going to be enemies with her). But, it was a nice change to see that at least for the time being, we were not against them. Right now, there's speculation that the Harbinger wheel is the order of he Harbinger bosses, which has proven correct once again now with Arle being next. ...So there's current speculation Columbina is next. I know we're meeting the captain in Natlan, but we'll see.

    I'd have to say that Sumeru was when I thought the writing was getting better. A lot of people complain about both the Xianzhou (hsr) and Liyue's writing a lot online (and Inazuma the most), but I think I told you this, my only complaint with the earlier archon quests was the pacing. Or how they tried cramming everything into three chapters. Since... Act 1 Chapter 4 is Dain, and Act 2 Chapter 4 is Chasm and Dain & not Inazuma. & Like Inazuma's final resolution (sakoku decree being revoked) was locked behind a story quest...and stuff. When that should have never been the case imo.

    ....Damn, less than a week until the Arle World boss, speaking of which. From what I know from the livestream though, we're fighting her for a particular reason.

    Meanwhile, the new area we're getting, I'm definitely not writing it in my current book. It has to wait awhile, lol.
    In other news, Natlan is less than six months away now.
    Palamon
    Palamon
    Luckily there's no interlude this time, so you'll be caught up after that.

    I think Dain is avoiding us or something.
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    Might give me some time to catch up on all the other stuff then.
    Palamon
    Palamon
    Yeah, probably. Genshin hasn't had anything really going on at the moment, so it might be a good idea to catch up while you can.

    4.6 we're getting a small new area, so...

    But no interlude.
    Less than 3 weeks until Siorc day.

    I paid for $200s worth of art for him.
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    Nice! Link me to the art when you get it?
    Palamon
    Palamon
    I'll probably pm it bc it's a pretty big photo file. But, sure.
    Mmm. Siorc's birthday is next month (4/27), and his 1,000 day anniversary of existence is the next week after that. (5/2) and his three year anniversary is August... (8/6). I have to do something...big.

    I'm going to a garden mansion on his birthday but that doesn't feel like enough. Lol.

    ...1,000 days is a big deal, you know?
    I'm normal about him, I swear.
    Palamon
    Palamon
    They have... around 8. I think but only 5 are atm live service.

    Idk if their first game is active. Zenless is also only in beta.
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    True, I always forget about Zenless.
    Palamon
    Palamon
    Don't blame you considering it's still not out. But, soon. Very soon.
    I have finished the "curse saga" I am now doing something even more wild. ...Sea monsters invading Teyvat. Fun stuff! As a set up for the final court case in the book.

    (Also a plot line about two gazelles that had their lungs replaced with gills as a way to "take their place in the family and were thrown in the ocean and now are regarded in legend as "Legendary Sea Gazelles who Eat People") and digging deeper into the psychology of the villains in the main plot.
    Palamon
    Palamon
    Yeah. They sleep for months to years at a time...kinda like a certain bard.
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    I'm envious
    Palamon
    Palamon
    Haha, I'm not... Bc I wouldn't want to be asleep that long. Hypersomnia to that extent is kinda scary imo.
    Completely unrelated to any of my hoyo stuff.

    I have an idea for a Sanrio Isekai thing I wanna do.
    Where people's characters are transported to a fantasy world and must partner with a Sanrio Character as their partner.

    But, I don't have the energy to like game master an RP unless it's a laid back one where someone would do some of it with me.
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    Much the same. Although you don't always write everyone together. Usually you'd split off into doing smaller groups posting parts of the story together or even doing solo posts. Getting the whole cast together into one post is usually a rare thing - especially with bigger groups.
    Palamon
    Palamon
    Hmm, okay. I don't think that sounds too hard. I could work with that, I think.
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    Nice!
    I pantsed something for my Honkai Star Rail verse.

    Don't ask me how I'm able to make content for three verses. I don't know, either.

    Just like my Genshin verse btw there's no Trailblazer. Either they're going on their own adventures or it's before the prologue of the story.
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    I assumed as much.
    Palamon
    Palamon
    I assume that when not in a trailblazer mission, Trailblazer is not on the express. So, either way.

    However, in a Zenless au, I won't be writing the proxy out of the story, they just won't be focused on.
    I'm finally beginning the curse stuff I mentioned a couple weeks ago.

    & Am occasionally working on my pjsekai project? But. It's not going to be 16kers for that, just tiny poems here & there. Can't write a second epic.
    Palamon
    Palamon
    Welp. It begins. In my notes, Siorc coughs up blood with literal pieces of Noctilucous Jade in it.

    He's not okay.
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    The classic.
    Palamon
    Palamon
    I think this honestly sounds much scarier than the real bubonic plague because imagine coughing out literal pieces of minerals from inside you.
    It's 2024, and boy do I have plans for Siorc.
    He will be dying from a curse until he's healed. Isn't that fun? /Sarcasm.
    I don't want to completely derail the "DANG IT" thread but if you ever have any interest in playing the FFXIII sequels, I hope you enjoy them! I did find XIII-2 to be pretty good.
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    I picked up the sequels during the Steam sale ayy
    Setsuna
    Setsuna
    Hope you enjoy them! As someone who just got around to playing the whole trilogy last year I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on them!
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    I'll let you know when I get around to it then.
    I started Honkai Star Rail

    And Reverse 1999.
    & My brain already wants Bri'ish 1920s Siorc. Uh oh!
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    It's enormous, but yes.
    Palamon
    Palamon
    She summons a big chicken. I really want her.

    In other news, DLC tomorrow. I still haven't bought it. I'm considering playing Omori if I don't.
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    I have her!
    Welp... I just made a Neon Genesis Evangellion Reference in my most recent chapter... it's all downhill from here. /Joke.

    ...(to be fair, my fanfiction is full of these meta references tho, at least one a chapter).
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    This new format is going to take some getting used to.

    You picked a good thing to reference though.
    Palamon
    Palamon
    Yeah, it definitely will. I do miss how it used to be but commenting directly isn't so bad.

    It was a fun reference to make. Maybe at some point I'll draw Siorc as an eva pilot.
    gimmepie
    gimmepie
    Sounds like fun.
    I've been doing this two years now on a weekly basis, so it adds up.

    Hmm...history, maybe? I haven't been in school in eight years.
    I mean, it is over a million words split between multiple books.

    I don't know how long text books are, but still.
