GRAND WARLOCK GREYSPELL

Godddd I hate fingerless gloves. HATE. But still, that's pretty hot. I HOPE TO FINISH BY FIRE FESTIVAL :D
meej: (PRODUCTIVE)
- LAUNDRY oh god how can I be out of clean socks HOW
- five posts for PW and four for BoP
- work out!
- vacuum around the cat box, why are cats such orful little pie-fillings WHY
- watch Ladyhawke.

So I had my six-month review at aprontiems (really more like a 10.5 month review, we are slightly behind at our store). Bossmans says I am awesome. I TOTALLY AM. I got a raise! I plan to use this money to buy a plane ticket for to see my high school BFF get married in June. I take my vacations around the celebrations of others. Meanwhile, my brother and sister are in Thailand (what), thence Bali (what). They are staying at a Holiday Inn (WHAT).

I bellowed "WHAT THE HELL, SOUTHWEST ASIA TOUR???" at my mother over the telephone when I was informed of this. She said reasonably that if I kept up with the facebooks I would know about this already. It's a sorry day when I have to learn that Boy and Bee are OUT OF THE FLIPPIN HEMISPHERE on the FACEBOOKS.

Last night I got to play realtime RP with some grown-ups. Greyspell told a story to a death knight and saw his garden. It's a DEATH KNIGHT's GARDEN. There is something very wrong with this picture! It was fun; the guppy tried to help by sitting on my lap and beating her tiny hands against the keyboard. This did not help Greyspell's reputation as an uptight upright erudite stillness-smith to have random strings of gibberish and spacebar-jumping. Gup so cute. <3

I am trying to write, but my brain is stupid. I keep mixing up bits of metallurgy and glass-crafting with political subplots, and I keep thinking that if I were Guy Gavriel Kay I could come up with some lovely conceit to liken Thalassian/Horde politics with stained glass, BUT NO, IT JUST SITS THERE LUMPENLY LIKE GLASSBLOWERS' HICCUPS.

I read a book called Liar by Justine Larbalastier. I am still thinking about it. It is one of those where I cannot say definitively that I liked it, but I read the entire thing in one day and I'm STILL thinking about it. A good choice. I may reread to see if I actually enjoy it as opposed to being jump-started by it.
meej: WORDS WORDS WORDS! (WORDS!)
THINGS I AM WRITING:

(mostly WoW, in absolutely no chronological order)

- Tiki and Greyspell in the Barrens
- Estela curls up and stares out at the world as an elf again, and considers how not being a demon makes even your eyes different
- Burny and Viraj have to have a Serious Talk with Niall Jones
- Kan'jin hits the deck in the tall grass when Aredhel attempts to save Cousin Lu from a damn skinny troll - what do you mean, we joined the Horde? WTF?
- Transcript of the unfortunate death of the Very Reverend Ilsombre Duskblessing
- The Pit of Saron. Jamisia is not a blacksmith. waugh.
- The tothrezim notice some things.
- The last remaining officer that Greyspell personally trained, and her vigil at the Black Temple terraces.
- A horrible Greyspelline AU that I have codenamed Pactsmith. It is going to be super gross and hard to write, because it is from the point of view of a demon, and they are gross by nature.
- Something else horrible that I have codenamed the Scourge Door
- Lai versus Mirain. :D
- Mirain versus Greyspell: endgame. D:
- Greyspell has acquired a squire. The felblood are mildly puzzled by Jackson.
- Conversations with Duskbringer, who has declared himself to be named, in rapid succession, Duskbinder, Duskblinder, Nightbringer, Nightshade, Bloodspeaker ("It has," Greyspell observes at this point, "been done"), Bloodsipper, Nightblood, and Nightmaster. The other felblood at no point disagree with him on any of these, and at least one agrees vocally with every single name choice or change.

... Okay so when I said "mostly WoW"? I meant "all".

NOW I AM OFF TO WORK, BECAUSE I WORK SEVEN DAYS IN A ROW THIS WEEK, AND I'M KIND OF GRUMPY ABOUT IT.

What do I do when I'm waiting for Arathi Basin to pop?

... I hang out in the bank and test out pretty clothes on my bloof.

Pretty large. )
meej: Lok'tar ogar, bitches. (for.the.horde)
Today in the middle of work (actually in the middling of constructing a cappuccino), I had a sceneflash of something that I am going to have to write about Shadowmoon Valley and the current Sunfury stationed there, simply because there is a line about Greyspell that I think is awesome.

THE CAPPUCCINO ALSO TURNED OUT WELL!

meej: Chardista Graycloak and his argument-maker. (writing)
I have so many things written and approaching completion, and my brain is sluggish and lethargic. I reached a very good point in Lai versus Mirain (spoiler: Laikhaila wins, because she is the Best Blood Knight), and then I just stared at the page and went to go dig up Nerubian artifacts (because puzzle-boxes of hell are just the thing for Greyspell).

I have posts on every board, and stories I've been working on for actual literal years, and tiny scenelets that I have sketched out in my notebooks. BRAIN-BLOAT, Y U SO HARD.

It's probably all the lolspeak I do, the abbreviated words and elided morae turning my brain into a soft mushy anvil against which no wordsmithing can make do.

I am reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, which came highly recommended, and which also posits a mighty sovereignty hight Panem. As soon as I saw that, I knew that I was going to like this, as horrible as it sounds.

I am also finishing up the Mistborn trilogy, by Brandon Sanderson. He has many gifts as an author, but one of the main ones is his sheer creativity about magical systems. Allomancy and Feruchemy are some of the coolest ideas for How To Win I've ever seen, and Vin is very clever with her uses within boundaries. Now there's a new kind of magic in that world, though, and I am uneasy just at the name 'hemalurgy'. (I am amused that even before I picked up the books I'd had ideas for Greyspell to study the bloodsmithing of Deepholm. It is what he does.)

Today's plans: aprontimes, writing some letters. I KNOW I OWE SKEILER AND Z!
