Starting “Last of Us” new game+. Let’s hope I don’t regret this.
…on the other hand, it should improve my understanding/ability of writing father/daughter interactions for future fics…
I mean could you imagine that scenario with Nobunagun characters—dat prologue man…
I was talking with my sister about Nobunagun...
- My sister didn't watch Nobunagun, so my obsession strikes her as more amusing than anything else. One time I was explaining to her how the whole 'e-gene holders' thing worked.
- Sis: So, they're basically like reincarnations then?
- Me: Well, yeah, kinda...I mean, it's more like, they sort of inherit the spirit of that person and channel it into a...weapon? But they don't actually 'become' that person or think of themselves as the reincarnation directly.
- Sis: ...oookaay... *is clearly confused*
- Me: Yeah I know I know, it's weird, because it's not like reincarnation in a straightforward sense.
- Sis: Okay, well, whatever. So basically, they're kind of like decedents of famous people and can call upon their spirit and that turns them into...weapons?
- Me: Eeh, more or less...I don't even know if reincarnation is really the correct term for this, but they use it in canon so eh *shrugs*
- Sis: I...see. So, you said that in this show, 'Jack the Ripper' was secretly Florence Nightingale? Wow.
- Me: Yeah, I know right? But historically speaking, it is theoretically possible, given that she was alive during the time of the murders. Plus she was a nurse and would've had some level of surgical skill.
- Sis: But then that means that guy (Adam) Jack? He's basically a woman reincarnated as a man then?
- Me: Yeah I guess so--wait. Oh. Yeah. He is...technically a woman...er, at least, was...?
- Sis: How come he's the only one who was a female that was reincarnated as a male?
- Me: ...Good question. There's more cases of male-reincaranted-as-female in this show...
I’m so excited for this game you don’t even. Especially with that impressive roster…and the tons of throwbacks to every single game the characters are from. I’ve only played a little bit/watched others play the Dynasty Warriors/Musou-type games before, but I do like that they still incorporate the traditional Zelda dungeon-crawls and item usage.
Guess I’ll have to buy a Wii U this fall…
Uuhh…you don’t even wanna know what kind of horrible thoughts I’ve been thinking about that…but they all tend to end pretty terribly…and also I’m not exactly sure I like the idea of Adam -> dub!con Sio…it just wouldn’t end well for either of them. (Not that I haven’t written legit, bad-end endings before).
…Well, I mean, if there was sufficient emotional repercussions then yeah…but mostly, I think you’d have to leverage ‘Jack’ and not so much Adam to do that.
The closest idea I came to something even remotely along those lines was playing off the idea of Adam being the incredibly possessive/territorial/easily-jealous type; and y’know, for whatever reason, he feels the need to ‘mark’ or ‘claim’ Sio as his…which may or may not result in some dubious aggression…er…is this making any sense…
celebistar said: That’s like me and Wii Fit. Except I’m never consistently actually doing it.
The Wii Fit is something that I tried, but because I’m at home with so many distractions, never really stuck with me.
Going to the Gym, its’ motivation within itself because literately the only thing to do there is either stand or work. It helps, because my family is involved as well, and that I have supportive people who’ll even be joining along side me once I become a member and get them guest passes for a couple weeks so that they can try it out as well. If transportation becomes an issue, its’ about a 15-20min bike ride from my home, so I literately have no excuse aside from bad weather not to go four times a week.
I feel that my hardest challenge will be my eating habits… finding small, healthier snacks despite my pluckiness and lack of fruit / veggies, and reminding myself to eat in general. Might even have to start putting alarms on my phone, because often days I can go days surviving off one meal because I legit forget to eat. Whoops.
I think my biggest problem is being consistent…the Wii Fit has to stay at home because my sister uses it, but during the school year I attempted to go to the gym regularly with my friend. It sorta kinda worked for a while until we got swamped with end-of-year projects and I just was like ‘can’t’. Mostly I like going for long walks around my neighborhood with my music.
But yeah, I really need to get in better shape myself…
I can’t believe I’m not sick of this song yet. It’s literally been on repeat day-in, day-out.
I really need to stop listening to Kalafina/Yuki Kajiura/music from series by Gen Urobuchi because it’s seriously distracting me from doing my actual work and instead makes me want to write a bunch of tragic-ass stories about my Nobunagun future!verse.
Like really, there’s like at least 4 audio files queued up that need to be paired with an appropriately depressing story…
In no particular order:
- “to the beginning" - Kalafina (though this is really the overarching song but my god it’s so good)
- “heavenly blue" - Kalafina (this one lends better for fanart though)
- “Point Zero" - Yuki Kajiura
- “let the stars fall down" - Yuki Kajiura
- “grief" - Yuki Kajiura (a bit too generic though maybe?)
- “tragedy and fate" - Yuki Kajiura (might be mixed with some other tracks)
- “curse" + "in a nightmare" - Yuki Kajiura (titles speak for themselves really)
- "The State of My Life" + "A World of Contradictions" - Yugo Kanno
Ok I’ll start it tonight celebistar.
I’ll admit that the first episode might not grab you right away—but just wait for it, I mean by the third episode (which is the latest) I was all like—
Then again I am a huge fan of Urobuchi’s works (Madoka Magica, fate/zero, PSYCHO-PASS) so generally speaking I really enjoy his characterization and plots. Though, I’ve heard he’s not going to be the main scriptwriter after episode 3, so we’ll see if they can keep it going. Although, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet was also in the same situation, where Urobuchi wrote only the first and last episodes, and that series turned out pretty good.
But really, with Ei Aoki’s direction (he’s the director for fate/zero) and Hiroyuki Sawano doing the music, it’s hard to go wrong…
