Things

Because I can't think of a better title. Plus I think this entry will cover a range of things.

Firstly, if you haven't already heard it, Si Tu Vois Ma Mère is a great song. It's a jazz song mostly featuring a sax duet. I personally love it because I play alto sax (though I think it's a soprano in the song), so it might not be everyone's cup of tea.

Secondly, first day of Pep Band was today. There were more saxes than I anticipated and one of them had a blue and gold saxophone. Not to say that that is the best sounding model, but it's blue and gold. How can you not love it?

So lightning has a prefix now, Vo, huh? I like it a lot, actually. It'll be useful for my [hopefully] upcoming epic. Now we just need prefixes for the other elements that don't have them. =P

I'm also getting a plethora of college letters since I've taken a practice ACT. Asking around, it turns out that my friends have either stopped getting them a while ago or never got one. I'm not sure how to feel about this. They're clogging my desk drawer.

I also planned out the rest of highschool when I had some free time and it looks like I'll be filled to the brim with AP classes senior year. Next year, I think I plan on taking.. 2 AP classes, Chem and US History. But senior year, all my classes bar band/lunch/PE and an empty one I am filling with a study hall, all my classes are AP classes. I understand why schools want a mandatory PE class, but I could really use another study hall or fill it with another class.

High school is too short.

BZP Age and Stories

Posted by Nara , in Writing, BZPower Nov 25 2012 · 97 views

It's odd, to me, that I am older than some people who I'd figure to be older than I. Join date wise, anyway. Maybe it's my post count compared to theirs.


In other news, I think I'm going to have a second shot at an Epic. My first one was back in my first year here, I think, and while I finished it, I don't really like how it's written.

Actually it may be one of the only stories I've finished. Ever.

So yeah. I've got a plot in mind, but there are also a mess of characters who are essential to the plot but may not be relevant to the story at any given point. Regardless, I'm going to try to give personality and background to these characters. However, there are sixteen and I initially planned on spending a week with each character to flesh it out more, but I don't think I can wait 16+ weeks before beginning to write. So I'll do it in pairs, since that's how they show up in story.

Actually it's kinda really eight characters with a partner but those are only the [currently] important Matoran/Toa. I currently don't have any Turaga created, and I envision there to be six. I also don't have any antagonists, and I'm debating on whether they'll be Dark Hunters or Makuta. Chances are, it'll be both, but not at the same time.
