In which the capslock-to-seriousness ratio regresses slightly, and there is a little mush.

Or, formally, in which we locate Alistair's last living relative )

Yeahhh, I have reached the stage of addiction where I willingly shell out more money to prolong this awesome game.

In which we search the ruins of Ostagar, and FINALLY, GODDAMNIT )

If you are reading this on LiveJournal, you should pop on over to my DreamWidth for just a second to see the icon that I made of Lyna. I am fond of it.


In which we fuck around in Denerim, look for a holy relic, and have some Serious Business talk about the elves )

In which dreams are bad, sloth demons are worse, and Alistair is adorable )

No pretense of actual purpose to this post, just more Dragon Age!

Spoilers through end of Redcliffe Castle.

In which we finally kick some serious ass, and goddamnit, Alistair, stop it ;__; )

Spoilers up to zombie battle in Redcliffe.

In which OH SHIIIIII-- )

Also, screenshots! :D )
ossobuco: Legion from Mass Effect 2 (revolution)
I need some Dragon Age icons. I am uploading screenshots to the website, which I will then proceed to save and icon with glee. What? So I want Alistair's face all over my internet. If that is wrong, I don't want to be right.

A graduation! )

Anyway, when I got home, I, predictably, played more Dragon Age: Origins. It was a session full of fetch-quests, but I also manged to fill it with a lot of chatting with my party, and that was enjoyable. So, this is probably not as exciting (and definitely not as full of capslock) as the last one, but... here it is anyway.

In which my adventuring party veers to the 'loony' end of the spectrum, and I start to develop that thing called empathy )

Okay. After talking to [livejournal.com profile] sakuratsukikage on Saturday night, I became convinced that I absolutely had to play Dragon Age: Origins like RIGHT NOW. So, I went out this morning and bought it. Tangentially, I find it interesting that the new copy of DA:O for PC that I bought was loads cheaper than the used copy of the expansion pack for the PS3. Seriously, what? Anyway, I was honestly not intending to do much gaming on my laptop, but one, I am suddenly legimitately interested in playing this game, and two, this computer is seriously fast, and this will be a good way to put it through its paces.

Anyway, I told Emma that I would keep my chosen story paths and my general reactions to the game well-documented for her. The easiest way to do this is LJ! So, you all get to follow along as I play DA:O, laugh at my stupid decisions, and hopefully not judge me too much.

So, then. Onwards. )

Primarily due to my recent discovery of the Fuck Yeah Tom Waits tumblr, I have made a small handful of Tom Waits icons. Please enjoy them. ♥

Please credit me (here or on DW) if you use them.

Now 110% longer, with 50% more plot hooks, and fewer calories than the leading brand!

But seriously, at long last, here is the real first chapter of Our Fathers' Sky, my dieselpunk Hetalia AU fic. The original first section has been slightly revised; the rest is all new, baby.

Disclaimer: Axis Powers Hetalia and its characters are the property of Himaruya Hidekaz. This AU and the locations and interpretations involved herein are largely my invention, but it is, in the end, fanfiction, and I claim nothing but the words themselves. My only profit is fun.

Well, without further ado...

Our Fathers' Sky: Chapter 1
Chapter word count: 6,289
Characters this chapter: America, England, Canada, France, Italy Veneziano & Romano, Spain
Chapter rating: PG
Summary: Young pilot Alfred F. Jones makes an emergency landing, and two auto mechanics find that they have unexpected competition as spring unfolds in the factory town of Farwell.

I bought about three pounds of zucchini at the farmers' market today, since it was cheap and looked really good, and now I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with all of it. I'm thinking some sort of gazpacho-like raw soup, perhaps, though I have a lousy blender and would be limited to chopping/squishing for the preparation thereof, and certainly some zucchini bread, but do any of you fabulous people have something particularly tasty to recommend, preferably in which zucchini is the main ingredient (and ideally, but not necessarily, makes an OK dinner/meal as opposed to a tasty treat or side dish)?

I really wanted to actually have the entirety of the first chapter done by today, but... yeah. And unfortunately that leaves out almost all of the important set-up for future chapters. So, I turned over a suggestion that [livejournal.com profile] anotadashi gave me, and am posting this as a sort of prologue, in hopes that you will forgive the rambling nature and the lack of a proper plot hook. I just wanted to have something today so that my cosplay for tomorrow's Steampunk meet will not be totally without context.

Since this is still a work in progress and the whole chapter will be posted together when I finish it, I really do welcome any comments or critiques to make this a stronger beginning. The title, too, is tentative and may be subject to change.

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] harusamemosuke, [livejournal.com profile] anotadashi, and [livejournal.com profile] ruiza for their help and encouragement, and for always being willing to let me bounce ideas off of them or babble about science. :D

Anyway, then!

Our Fathers' Sky: Chapter 1, part 1: a prologue of sorts.
Chapter word count: 2,849
