FTL: Faster Than Light is a recently released space-simulator roguelike game from two independent developers. 'Roguelike' means that the game world and encounters within it are randomly generated, and that death means starting over fromt he beginning; there is no loading an old save. They also tend to be highly unforgiving with rapid deaths. Despite this, they're a lot of fun, with each playthrough (usually ending in disaster) presenting its own little story.

FTL is a ton of fun, so I thought I'd do a little diary of a playthrough for you guys. Sort of a mini-Let's Play. As it turns out, it wound up being my most successful attempt to date.

FTL is ten dollars, and can be purchased directly from the creators here. It works on WIndows, Mac, and Linux, and can be redeemed DRM free through Gog.com, or on Steam, at no extra cost.

It's been a long road getting from there to here )

I have a lot of Thoughts about the recent Support Group RP meme. Here I describe them in a 1800 word post.

hey, I did say a LOT of thoughts! )

Of course, that's all just my perspective. Other people may feel differently. My biggest hope is that the RP community will look at this meme and learn from it, because it clearly has a lot to teach us.

So there's a DC Comics miniseries called Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures In The 8th Grade". It's a continuity-free goofy little title for kids, and it is...pretty much exactly what it says on the label. It is adorable and really good in general. I heavily recommend it.

And because I love it so much, I've begun systematically iconning it from top to bottom. This batch covers the first issue and the first ten pages or so of the second.

Title: Commands The Night Sky
Fandom: Soul Eater
Rating: PG
Characters/Pairings: Blair
Summary: A Portrait Of The Nymphomanic Cat As A Young Kitten.
Word Count: 1301
Notes: This is technically manga-verse, but the only way you'd know the difference is one offhand reference that is utterly unimportant. Written for [livejournal.com profile] kuroshiro_neko as part of [livejournal.com profile] se_ladyfest

Warm. Warm. A dark figure envelops her, holding her and her sisters in place, a great black wall surrounding them. Not frightening. Reassuring. Warm. Safe. )

Like I said in my previous post, I've just put up a post for icon requests. Everyone can have at it! The more the merrier!

In celebration of my move to Dreamwidth, and while I wait for the import to work its way through the queue, I decided I would post all the icons I've made and never posted because I got lazy and lost track of what I had and hadn't posted! It took me damn near two and a half hours to put this post together...and for good reason: It's ginormous! Three hundred and thirty icons!

I'll update the Totals post once the import's gone through. I just realized I'm going to have to redo all the links in that post. Sob being fastidious with your organization is suffering.

However, the big news is that this post easily pushes me over one thousand icons made and posted in this journal!Now that's a milestone, and I'll put up requests after the new year.

So, uh...welcome to Excuse Me WTF R U Iconning, Dreamwidth Edition!

All my shit's imported now. I suppose this is my new home.

Well I guess I'm finally upping sticks. I don't use my personal journal much at all anymore, but if you want in on any future content on my part you should add me on Dreamwidth. Meet the new journal name. Same as the old journal name. I'll also be moving my icon journal over once community imports become a thing for unpaid users in a few weeks.

Alternatively if you have a plurk you'll likely have more success catching me there.
pikabot: (headshake)
I just haven't been checking my personal LJ, like, at all for the past eight months or so. Just sporadically when I need to log in to do some [livejournal.com profile] queenofheartsrp modwork.

So, um. What is everybody up to? If there are any posts of yours you were hoping I'd see link them here I guess.

Oh and um if you have a Plurk you should probably add me since that is the best way to keep in touch with me at this time.

This morning, my Japanese professor was an hour late for class.

The reason is pretty easy to figure out: the time changed over the weekend. Obviously she forgot to set her clock.

So she walks in and the TA (gently) points out first that she is late, and then when she didn't figure it out, that it is actually 10:30, not 9:30. Her hand flew to her mouth, embarrassed, and we all had a few chuckles over her totally mundane and understandable mistake. She was laughing too...but then she started crying. She'd seemed fine when she walked in, but I guess the embarrassment tipped her over.

Thankfully, all her friends and family are safe (at least, I'm pretty sure all her friends are safe; it got a little hard to follow at that point), although one friend had to leave with her family, as they lived inside the evacuation zone for the ongoing nuclear accident.

There are tens of thousands of people affected by the Earthquake/Tsunami in Japan, and countless others who, although geographically distant from the disaster itself, are still close to it by virtue of friends, family, and other loved ones. If you can spare any money at all, please consider donating it through any one of these means. If you can't, please consider donating time and talent to fundraising efforts such as [livejournal.com profile] help_japan.

Unfortunately, this came at a time when I am overburdened with other commitments and am in a cash crunch, so I'm unable to do either. I understand if you can't either. But if you are able to: every little bit helps.

Oh, I'm sure nobody reading this does this, but to those putting down or demeaning the way in which someone chooses to help people affected by a disaster like this? Fuck you sideways. This is more important than your need to make your charity penis look bigger.

Title: Approaching Breakthrough
Rating: PG. Little bit of cursing and...you know. Blair being Blair.
Fandom: Soul Eater
Characters/Pairings: Angela, Blair, Lisa and Alisa
Summary: Blair stumbles across a young witch in the streets of Death City, and decides to bring her back to the Club, where she gets some lessons on how to better work her magic.
Notes: Lisa and Alisa's characterization is made up almost whole cloth, for obvious reasons. I wrote this on the assumption that the way we normally see them behave is their 'stage persona' ie how they act for customers. Anime canon, but with minor non-conflicting elements from manga canon tossed in. Was written for [livejournal.com profile] shotwatermelon as part of [livejournal.com profile] se_ladyfest. Works as a companion piece to my previous fic on the subject of Angela, but can also stand alone.

The dumpster was large and filled almost to capacity with the leavings of the seafood restaurant it sat behind. Blair picked through it gleefully, her paws shoving coffee grounds, eggshell, potato peelings, and other miscellany aside in search of the perfect meal.  )

Characters/Pairings: Mrs. Bradley, Mrs. Bradley/King Bradley as important backdrop
Summary: Mrs. Bradley takes to the airwaves of Radio Central to discuss her life, her work, and her marriage to a King.
Notes: Since Mrs. Bradley has no canonical first name, I consulted a list of German queens and arbitrarily decided on Emma for her. Written for [livejournal.com profile] fma_ladyfest an age ago.

OK so if you want in, it'll be at 8:30 PM EST on Friday night. We'll probably burn through the first four episodes or so.

Have you ever seen Serial Experiments Lain?

If no, would you like to?

Serial Experiments Lain is a super-trippy, highly experimental anime series from the late 90s. It's brilliant, if extremely difficult to follow, and definitely a worthwhile watch, especially since it's only thirteen episodes.

It chronicles the journey of shy, socially inept, fourteen-year-old Iwakura Lain as she explores both the burgeoning electronic world of the Wired (aka the Internet) and the far more confusing world of personal relationships. Following the plot will likely give you a headache or two, but it really doesn't hurt it.

I'm going to be Livestreaming it starting this weekend, either Friday or Saturday night. If you would be interested in watching this with me, drop a comment here with what times would be best for you.

I know it's not Halloween anymore, but I only found this today, so you can just deal. [livejournal.com profile] sockefeller put out one scary-ass short comic yesterday, and you should check it out: His Face All Red, by Emily Carroll.

If you like it (and you probably will), let her know here.
