I got the special outfit in El Shaddai. I am taking advantage of it to watch the bosses...

...and to see if I can place the exact type of sandal Enoch wears, since nothing else is covering his feet with this outfit.

Also: the written language in the game seems oddly...consistent for what I originally assumed was a fictionalized text based on languages from that era and area.

So now I am looking closer at it to see if I can't at least identify it. (I think there is a shift in it between the start of the 300-year-skip and the end, as there well should be, which only makes me want to decipher it further.

And I start...with the stuff on this poster.

Which was doubtless designed by Armaros. Who is flashier than Enoch and his theatrical battling in absolutely every regard. So the letters are obviously stylized and not neat, simple print because that's not the way Armaros does things.

Most I can tell, it's largely based in Aramaic with some elements of modern Hebrew and Arabic.

Well, what else can you expect from a society that's been isolated for 300+ years? It might well be a waste of time, but I want to find that out for myself before dismissing it.

Because I am too into dissecting details.

You guys aren't gonna believe this.

I'm stuck in front of a closed campus for the next 4 hours because I never got the memo that the school canceled Saturday classes before Labor Day as well.

Hahaha, oops.

In other news:

We...kind of wound up breaking Enoch-muse (yes I have an Enoch muse) last night in MSN. And then things got creepy because he started describing what it felt like to be close to the vileness in the Darkness stages and HAVE YOU LISTENED TO THE DARKNESS STAGE MUSIC WITH HEADPHONES? IT IS THE CREEPIEST SHIT EVER AND I DON'T EVEN GET CREEPED OUT BY SILENT HILL.

I am not surprised that Enoch has storytelling talent. He wasn't really trying, he was just going for creeping us out in a sort of "you think you're scared of that? You're the ones safe on the other side of that screen!" kind of way.

Thankfully the breaking didn't happen in canon so the muse is okay. But holy shit, man.

EDIT: Also there is something making beeping noises inside the campus even though there's no one inside. o_O

Bro bought a PS3. Thought we agreed to share the cost, but he bought it all on his own. Oh well, all the more cash for me to spend on El Shaddai (and maybe Catherine? Iffy on that, neither of us is much of a puzzle gamer).

Tested it on both TVs. Works beautifully on mine. That TV played my Genesis games when I was six, and now it's playing PS3. Aside from oversaturated reds and sound quality suffering from the RF adapter, works just fine.

I love my little gaming TV. :3

Pick one of my fics, and I'll give you three details that didn't make it into the fic. Background canon, deleted scenes, or a look into the future. My choice, but if you have a specific question you can ask it in your request.

All my fics are on the fic tag!

Why not?

So I was telling Mom about my attempt to deconstruct the stories in the bible for the sake of writing. This actually happened quite some time ago. I have no idea why it's come to mind now.

But anyway, I started telling her about how some things are completely silly and she's like, "They're parables. They're just parables, you can't take them literally."

Of course some of these are obvious metaphors. But hey, you don't see anyone claiming, say, the story of Arachne was a parable against pride, do you? No, everyone accepts it at face value as a story in a mythology, because it is widely considered a mythology. But Greek mythology was treated as a religion at one point in time, too. As far as I'm concerned, the Abrahamic faiths are exactly the same.

I'm doing this because I love mythology, and I won't exclude those in current use because someone else believes it's more than just a story.

The obvious metaphors work as stories too. And that's the way I'm treating them.

Fuck original intent. Let me have my fun.

Go look at your blog/journal. Find the last Fandom-related thing you posted. The characters in that post are now your team-mates in the Zombie Apocalypse. How fucked are you?

...I guess rambling about playing a game is kind of fandom-related. So the last post talked about beating SMT2 on the Law path. The characters mentioned by name are Gabriel, Beth, YHVH, Virtue, Anubis, and Satan.


One word: Mahama.

My apartment is the safehouse, guys. If there's enough room left to stand with the giant floating head in the way.

So, a couple of days ago, I beat SMT2 on the Law path! It was to canon-review for Gabriel...but I wound up picking up two new muses from the playthrough. Only one of which is a journal (that's Beth, btw), and uh. Yeah.

Anyway, the final couple of battles were more annoying than they were hard. YHVH only killed someone by damage once, and that was only because it was Satan spamming Deathbound and YHVH landed a critical before Virtue could Diarahan him. If it had not been a critical, he would not have died.

His only other kills were Anubis, by Voice. Yeah. Kind of underwhelming.

In other news, uh. YHVH has some interesting sprite frames. I've only ever creeped people out by showing them this one, but I can't stop laughing at it, personally. It just looks so stupid on him.

And then I made an icon of it because I was kind of bored and it amused me. Feel free to take it, treat it like a base, whatever.

Dear Kirsche,

Thank you for submitting to the Neopian Times. Currently your submission (Refracted Hope) is being held over and may be considered for future publication in the Neopian Times. There is no need to submit your submission again, as it is saved by the editor.

Yours Sincerely,
The Neopets Team

YES! I've never gotten a story rejected after it's been held over.

I'll keep you all posted!

I never had any plans for moving out, I figured I'd do that whenever it was convenient for everyone. And if it never was, then so be it. I figured I'd do whatever was best rather than what society expects of me. Just because I'm "supposed" to move out as an adult doesn't mean it would work out or I should, right?


My mom's utter inability to follow instructions on a computer screen or even click what seems right has made me decide that even if it seems convenient to move out, even if I want to, I'm not going to as long as my mom owns a piece of technology with any sort of user interface beyond a power button.

Comment with "bring it on!" and:
• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
• Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions (but only if you want to).

So if I didn't give you questions before, now's your chance! [ profile] knuddleluff asked me these:

1. What is your favorite SMT demon (that is not an angel)?

Kurama Tengu! I love tengu in general, and Kurama was one of my constant companions throughout the endgame of DSRK1.

2. What is your favorite MegaMan game and/or series?

I'm partial to the Classic series, but overall my favorite games are:
Classic: 7
X: 4
Battle Network: 3

3. Name at least three personal items that you would use to decorate your bedroom.

My Nook (more it's cover, really), my DS, and my laptop (or its case). End result would probably be a floral/earthy thing since the main colors for those three wind up being brown, pink, and green(if we use the laptop case).

4. Other than gaming and reading, what would you consider your hobby?


5. What do you consider your greatest achievement in life so far?

Submitting three pieces to the school's creative writing journal, judged by the creative writing instructors. Two of them were slice-of-life stories, one was a fantasy piece (if you don't know, creative writing instructors tend to disallow fantasy and sci-fi on principle because bad writers tend to hide their bad writing behind the fantasy and sci-fi ideas.). My creative writing instructor knows me and my fantasy and has allowed it (!), but he wasn't on the judging panel that year.

Guess which piece of the three made it in, with a panel of complete strangers? :3

[ profile] zekkass asked me these:

1. Who's your favorite character from anything? And why?

Pfff, uh. Gabriel, SMT2. And I had a long rambling reason why here.

2. What's your favorite book?

I...have no idea. There are too many good ones. One of the best ones I've read so far is called The Name of the Wind. It's a good fantasy piece that has worldbuilding that makes sense and is executed well

3. What draws you to the angels in SMT?

I...have no idea. I'm just fascinated by them.

4. What's the best thing that's happened to you in the last year?

Uh...having some awesome times RPing. :3

5. Why'd you choose that username?

Well, my usual screenname is Cherry. When I tried naming my character in Imagine that, though, it was taken. So I went through mutations of it until I found one that was not taken. And surprise, it wasn't taken here or anywhere else!

Wish me luck, guys!
chierii: (Default)
Title: don't have one yet! I'm thinking "Disillusioned", "Bad Habits", "Miscolored", or "Chronic Absentee". Suggest titles (even one of your own) in the comments please!
Fandom: Neopets(!)
Rating: G. I do plan to submit this to the NT, after all!
Summary: A longtime owner returns with yet another new account. But there's something from her previous "life" there she wants.
Notes: If there is anyone who is hard to write as a believable, flawed character, it's oneself. So critique me please! It's hard to write myself without help! I don't have to shoot for absolute professional quality given the stories at the Neopian Times, but the less I settle for second best, the better my chances of getting in!

I can sit on the computer and read blogs idly for hours.

I am only interrupted whenever I am writing or playing a game I cannot pause.
