And I finally have something to show for this.
Ladies and gentlemen, for your consideration -- Chapter 14 of Wings
I think it's not a secret that I enjoy(ed) RPGs here -- I have an entire quote block here immortalizing quotations in various games I've been in, for crying out loud.
My problem now, though, is that times are changing and I'm not changing with them, for good or for bad.
Anyone else remember the days that when you joined an RPG, you were always given a chance to counter another player's post with your own, assuming it was within the rules of the game? Or when if someone godmodded, practically half the players active at the time would publicly call them out, not just one or two GMs who did so privately so they didn't seem like they were picking on the player in question?
Overall, Transformers: Alignment was initially good but ... I'm not gelling with it anymore. What I've cited above are common instances in said RPG. Even the fact Basilisk and I have basically thrown the entire Decepticon faction into civil war isn't making it easier to tolerate this stuff. Especially since he's thinking about leaving the game.
I'm thinking about that too.
Because really, if my playing style doesn't fit with the majority, I'd rather not keep trying to use a fence as a dam. I'd rather just walk away.
I'm not saying I'm resigning from my post as Staff in Alignment, but I'm not far from doing so, especially with college approaching for me.
Thanks for listening.
Aside for a few mishaps last night, though, his visit was excellent. ^^
- 8/1: Picked him up at SeaTac, went out to The Rock for dinner with my family, including my grandparents.
- 8/2: Took a walk around town; embarked on a Lord of the Rings marathon afterwards. Fell asleep around 11 PM.
- 8/3: Hung out with one of my friends for most of the day; watched Mythbusters for the rest of it. Dozed off on the couch around 11; had to be roused so we could head to our respective rooms.
- 8/4: Headed down to Edmonds in the morning; embarked on another Mythbusters marathon afterwards.
- 8/5: Went up to Duvall to visit my aunts and cousin on the lake. Watched more Mythbusters and Shark Week features after we returned.
- 8/6: Went downtown to see the King Tut exhibit. Was impressed until we realized that his death mask didn't make it into the thing. Spent most of the day afterwards MOCing.
- 8/7: Watched disaster features on the History Channel during the morning; went to watch The Dark Knight Rises late in the day (awesome movie, btw); went out for dinner afterwards. Hung out in the living room until midnight.
- 8/8: Helped him pack, went to SeaTac to drop him off; miscommunications with my mom left me stranded outside for about half an hour until an on-duty officer helped me out. Drowned sorrows in Skyrim after getting home.
Btw, Ak is probably the coolest person in the world. I could not ask for a better boyfriend.
That said, I'm off until the 11th of August. Seeya guys later!
Well, a certain Canadian that I'm in an LD-relationship with is coming down to Washington for a visit.
And then after he goes home, I have college orientation.
With that said, if you hear reports of spontanious explosions at Sea-Tac airport, or Swert's shop gets stormed between the 1st-8th of August, that'd probably be us.
I apologize in advance.
I'll post this pictures and brief descriptions here; if there's enough interest, I'll move it a Seller's topic. I don't have prices in mind just yet; I'm mostly testing the waters.
Item 1: White Bronze Korahk-Kal Ring
This ring was made in my second year of metals class; I think the ring size is 8. It fits on my index finger decently enough. Every once in a while I have to treat the inside of the ring with clear nail polish so my fingers don't turn green when I wear it.
Item 2: Silver Three Virtues
I originally made thisto be a medallion; however at the end of things it's rather unweildy as a piece of jewelry and will probably be better off as a paperweight. The design is silver plate suspended inside plastic; unfortunately the silver seems to be tarnishing, and I can't clean it because its completely encased.
Item 3: White Bronze Galohk-Kal Shield
This is a holdover from a ring I made: the ring itself was too big for a person it was commissioned for, but I recovered the shield. I haven't actually done something with it -- there's no hole drilled into it -- but it could be altered to be a necklace of some kind.
Item 4: Ancient Bronze Megablok Spartan
This piece was made recently, and shows why minifigs should not live with metal artists. The loop shown in the second picture was added by me to let him become a pendant; the leather string will come with him if anyone takes him in.
*got an email saying it was available and to check for downloads*
*eagerly does so on iTunes*
*repeats multiple times*
Definately a lot of fun, though I still would've liked to have kept my internal clock intact by the end of it. =P
Anyway, my high school years are officially over; might throw up a picture my mom took of me after commencement. (Which, incidentally, had a med-evac helicopter land nearby during the last half of the ceremony.)
- Monday: Finals (+ Senior Awards)
- Tuesday: Finals
- Wednesday: last day of school for Seniors
- Thursday: Senior breakfast, graduation, graduation party
- Friday: go out to dinner with fam
- Saturday: family dinner part 2
I can't wait.
Your commission is cast and nearly ready to be shipped. =P
Still needs a little cleaning work, but I like how it came out. Also, it's friggen huge on my finger.
Hope you like it; it's practically the only thing that went the way it was supposed to this week.
... or, the other Transformers belt buckle I've recently finished. xD
It looks a little different from the Decepticon one because I used a different method to carve the wax (the Dcon one was carved by handtools, while this one was carved using a machine), but I like how this one came out.
(Not for sale, btw.)

Enter Seneca's Keep if you dare. These halls ring with the laughter, screams, and sobs of those that enter our realms and listen to our words. Many leave in the end, but there are those that fall so under our spell that they never set foot in the outside world again.
They still haunt the Keep -- you may see them out of the corner of your eye, pale and wane from lack of proper sustance. They will not harm you, so long as you do not give them reason to, but take their tale as a warning. Delve into our otherworldly plots with caution -- immerse yourself too deeply, and even we Seneca will not be able to prevent you from becoming part of the Keep and our stories forever.
Join us at your own risk.

Shrink ray to make them fit in teacup: $200,000
Kopaka expression once he discovers what the others are about to do to him: Priceless
~La Pantoufle Seule ~: OOC: ME TO THE RESCUE. -fanfare plays while I jump off building-
Kothra: OMG! BAD INFERNA.
Alex Humva: Zarry has the powers of prediction, guys. Listen to him, lest you become a fly on honeypaper thats on fire with a nuke aimed at it.
Shot by a PHYSICIST!: *Spittake* Three point five? That does it. I'm moving to Washington.
Japoro (in an arguement with Kagha about the possiblity of AeolusxAmph in H&H): You say she wants to dump me for some loser air toa?! I KILL YOU FOOL!
Akaku: I'm not scared of Inferna -- just fearfully surprised.
Sir Kohran: If your parents think you're too old for Lego, simply ask them what you should be into instead, then enjoy the bewildered silence that follows.
Me: On a weird scale we're all normal, but on a normal scale we're all weird.
Half-Dragon: Seems like everyone and their archnemesis has a legacy. Me? I don't even HAVE an archnemesis, let alone a legacy. Does that make me shallow or just really lucky?
Akaku: I like to pretend everything is going well whilest in reality its nothing short of the apocalypse.
AlchemyFox: All love is tragic... Unless you're Shakespeare. Then it's just plain "Whaaaaaat?"
Smeag (in Nikira's profile): There is no such thing as a Smeag-proof cell. My blundering bombast overcomes all. As you can see, I've already rescued her. >:3Dalek: *teleports Nikira to Smeag-proofed cell* Pay the 500,000 widgets, or I test my new ray gun on her! >=DSmeag: WHAT! I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS! *BURSTS INTO COMPOUND* WHO WANTS A PIECE OF ME?!?! *PROCEEDS TO KNOCK OUT ALL THE GUARDS* *SMASHES HEAD THROUGH NIKI'S* CELL* I'M HERE TO RESCUE YOU!
Dalek: I guess I can blame this confusion on your being knocked out with smoke. You are currently in a cell, with LK in the cell to your right, Tahu01 in the cell to your left, and Turakii in the cell to the right of LK's. I turned on Tahu01, knocked you all out, and stuck you in these cells. Now I'm gonna hold you all for a ransom of 500,000 widgets each.
Necro: A lie is just a great story that someone ruined with the truth.
Varderan: Violence makes the world go around.
Along with pretzels and assorted hair products.
Kagha (about something I told him from LST): ... DEATH?
Amph's gonna die?
*runs into basement, pulls out hammer, and runs after Inferna*
Kagha in KG: Anyway, curse you all and your stupid fast-moving RPG. ><
Me (in his profile): Actually, that quote came from a MMO trailer that follows KOTOR II. =PMangai (in my profile): @ Personal statement: Oh, yeah! HK RULEZ
(My personal statement) "Interjection: Silence, meatbags!" - HK-47
Too bad I never played KotOR, or its sequel XP
Mangai (in my profile): CARKITALL
Oh, well, now I have proof that I am unawesome for Zar. Thanks!
Alex (in KG): YAY-*Choughhackwheeze*
If guitars are universes, and I play with and own multiple guitars, does that make me a God?
KNEEL BEFORE ME
King of Shadows (in Starscape): BEST ERA OF ANYONE'S HISTORY ANYWHERE
Alex (in Starscape): an era when Natsirt claimed to be guns
Peach 00 (in PM): Always loved the Song of Double Time on Majora's Mask. Watch, we'll figure out somebody on the planet has an ocarina and is the source of why the year is going by so fast.
Myself (in an AIMRPG; as Toa of Psionics Kalima): "Who's he?"
Akaku (in the AIMPRG; as Toa of Undeath Akuji): "He ... He is part of everything ... He is the age in a being, the disease in a society, the bullet in a gun... He is what gives this world balance. He is the one who looks after the fallen, and either sends them to the pit or the realm of the great beings ... He is among all of us, even now, especially in my kingdom ... especially in me."
Why Inferna Shouldn't Play Rpgs
Rockhound (in the BZProvince Discussion Topic, fighting Xom and Kagha over my character): We really should get all three of us together and brawl it out. Winner-date-'Ferna.
Xomeron (in KG): If by "So Many" you mean Infinity. In BZProvince, she had four people chasing after her character at once! My character included.Rockhound (in KG): Says who, Kagha?
Kagha (in KG): Lol, Xom, Inferna can only have so many romantically involved characters. XD
Me (in KG): OOC: Thanks for the ideaaaa.[/singsongvoice]
HN (in KG): OOC: Inferna, I am not going to IC six guards all fighting two people. xD
And Inferna, wouldn't that mean that you're fighting Mark? o_o; Do you want me to take Mark.
OR ARE YOU GOING TO USE VERT BECAUSE YOU'VE INJECTED THE SERUM GASP GASP GASP GASP.
-i didnt give Inferna an idea I DIDNT I DIDNT-
Me (in KG): OOC: Hint to HN: Don’t give ideas to the evil genius co-Moderator.
HN (in KG): OOC: ZOMFISH I SEE WHERE YOU’RE GOING WITH THIS INFERNA
YOU ARE GENIUS. XD
Akaku (on AIM): (If people are flirting with you in RPG's again, I will note I now fully reserve the right to yell at them XP)
