  1. Last week
  2. I first wanted to post this on a the Elven board, but I have been told that this applies to some Vampires too...so here goes: There are a few issues regarding time in my life: I have a really rotten conception of linear time, I do not own a mobile phone hence a clock in my bag, all the clocks on buildings where I live never seem to work, and I just seem to fry the batteries in conventional watches (see above paragraph). I have tried to wear watches on my right wrist because if I wear them on my left wrist over my Elven flow the battery will only last a few days, on my right wrist 1-2 weeks: when I practise my darts I use magnetic arrows and one day I decide to make an experiment. I have long suspected that my Elven flow equals stronger magnetism in my aura which in itself is an electromagnetic force field. And rightfully so, when I held an arrow over my right wrist I could hardly sense anything however over my left wrist I could definitely feel a magnetic pull. Now I am not technical minded by I know that too much ampere through a battery can really mess up an electrical circuit hence in this case blocking the power to the quartz crystal which makes the watch work. The problem is that I am mostly right handed which makes it a nuissance to even fasten the watch strap yet alone all the knocks and bumps the watch get's from everyday life. I would like a watch though for practical reason and it will not hurt if I can wear it as an accessory, too. I have really stumbled over wooden watches, I like the concept, and since there is no steel casing/conductor of magnetism, they should be sturdy enough for even me to wear one. But has anyone here, who normally cannot wear watches, any experience with wooden watches? Can we wear them or does the battery fry way to early like in conventional steel cased quartz runned watches?
  3. A belated merry Yule to you too, girl :-)
  4. Earlier
  5. Happy Winter Festival and whatever else anybody here celebrates!
  6. Same to you, Dem! Looking forward to seeing you in the new year!
  7. I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy Winter festival. I hope you have a great time whether you spend it with loved ones or you escape to some peaceful solitude. Much love to all the members of my second family.. ~x~ See ya next year...
  8. I am having a lot of fun! I just finished my final project for one of my classes, and now all of my work for this school week is done. I have a few hours before I turn towards bed, so I will be using part of that time to work on my fanfic. At some point I really need to work on my original stuff, but I'm kind of dedicated to doing this fic now. And I since Dem wants part two, I have to work on that. Gotta keep my ladies happy!
  9. Sounds like your are having fun. I'm overjoyed you are finally able to through yourself into something you love
  10. lol uhoh, I'm in trouble! Dem wants more and I don't have anything yet! I did start writing a second part, but I haven't had a lot of time to work on it with school. Also, I've been laser focused on my Dragon Age stories for the last month because December 4th is Unofficial Dragon 4ge Day and a bunch of fans have organized an event. There's a charity auction, donation pools, raffles, and a couple of the voice actors from DA Inquisition are donating their time and will also give out some signed merchandise and donations. There are writing and drawing prompts for people to use for inspiration, and you can submit your work to the people running the event and they will share it so everyone can see it. One of the big prompts is what the games mean to you, and I wrote a blog post on it. I had to edit a lot of things out because it was a little too personal and involved one of my exes, but it was really nice to express it. I debated on doing a video submission for it as well but that would require looking nice lol. I've submitted four short scenes for the event and was planning on drawing out a dragon, but I won't be done in time with the dragon (everything has to be submitted by 11/27 and this thing is pretty big). Working on the prompts has really given me a lot of ideas for stuff and actually inspired a new story I've been working on via the prompts, but since it's a whole story rather than random scenes like with my other DA story, I'm not posting more than the teaser scene I put up until I have written the beginning of the story. I'm going to try and line up the end of the story with DA Day next year, so I have some time to work on it. I do need to work on the other story-line, The Hunt, but I just haven't had the chance. I've been on a bit of a writing spree except for the part where I have to write something non-speculative for one of my final short stories in a class I'm taking this term. The last time I tried to write "normal" fiction, it still turned into a fantasy story, so I learned years ago to stick with what I love. However, this program requires you to dabble in all of the major genres you can choose from for your thesis, so I still have to try. I really don't think my professor is going to fail me because I suck at contemporary fiction, she's not that sort of teacher and will generally give someone a passing grade on an assignment if she can see that they really did try. I just...I set the bar really high for myself with the last three assignments because I was able to incorporate fantasy elements in all of them and I kept with the same main character so I could flesh out one of my backup thesis ideas. Like, that bar is so high I'm going to need my wings back to get over it. But! Since you want to know what happens next with Lannan and Merrick, I'll tell you....once I've written it I have a general idea, I just have to fit it into a timeline and decide on a couple of details first. Because it isn't my world, I have to try and remain aware of the rules and where the canon characters are and when they're there. This first installment takes place completely independent of all other characters within that universe, but the next chapter will probably bring them into contact with civilization. Oh....I have a map, I think. I guess it's a good thing I got Witcher 2, because it comes with a map! But, to be honest, several people have expressed an interest in this story being turned into a full-fledged book, and I really am inclined to do it, provided I go about it the right way. The main obstacle is that I can't publish it for profit unless I get permission, so I may just post the chapters online. I haven't decided if I will repost onto Archive of Our Own, mostly because it's a media tie-in right now and not a pure fanfiction, but all of my DA stuff is on AO3 and it's a site for that kind of stuff. I'm really glad you like it though! It makes me feel encouraged to keep writing! Ohhhhh I don't think I told you guys yet! I finished the first draft of the novel I've been working on for the last couple of years! I want to use it for my thesis, which doesn't start for almost a year yet, but I was so excited when I finished it and I still can't quite believe that I finally finished writing a novel! The first draft, true, and it's far from finished and polished, but I've never finished any of my drafts before. I have a list of revisions I want to make and I'm saving it all for the thesis process. Unless, well, unless I just can't resist finishing it before then and choose another story to work on for it. I have two other potential ideas for my thesis, so if I can't keep from working on it, I will just refocus on one of the other two. Too bad we can't use fanfiction for our classes, because that's all I seem motivated to write at the moment. I literally have a DA novel planned out in my head up to a certain point, after that there is zero canon for what comes next involving one of the characters, and thus I can do pretty much whatever I want. *evil cackle*
  11. Ohhhh I should have added this to my Christmas list. I think I still could, but I already gave my mom a really workable list so I will just leave it be.
  12. It is still coming for the switch I believe dem
  13. Awwww.. In April the makers said it would be available on the Switch, but then they only released in on the PS4 and the Xbox 1.. I am so upset..
  14. Damn Rhannan, that's good.. What happens next, does she go with him, does she talk him around to her way of thinking, does her father come back?? Oooh you can't do this to me!!!!! lol
  15. Update: I have also started an account on Archive of Our Own and posted a couple of pieces there. https://archiveofourown.org/users/DeaInTheMachina
  16. Spyro has always been super adorable lol. I remember one game did have it so that the ground in front of him burned whenever he breathed fire but the effect only last for a few seconds.
  17. Yeah, you should be fine for space then. I've got 8 games on mine, including this one. I think the graphics are good; it's obviously cartoony and I would compare it to the look of the Clash of Clans commercials. I does extra details that the originals didn't do. The dragon encounters for example are a lot more animated and have more character, and when Spyro breaths fire it burns the ground in front of him. Also, Spyro is super adorable!
  18. I've been thinking of getting it because I used to play the games on my PS1 and they were pretty fun. Glad to know the revamp is good! I don't have a lot of games on my PS4 so if I do get it, I highly doubt I'll have too many worries about space (I only have like 4 games on my PS4). How are the graphics?
  19. Please help! I preordered the Spyro Reignited Trilogy earlier this year, and now that it's finally out, it is not downloading because it is under the false impression that there is not enough free space. It's only 32GB, and I have more than that available in system storage. Does anybody else have this same problem? Where is it actually downloading to that it thinks there's not enough space for it? And where is the 'downloads' tab on a PS4? Edit: After considerable digging, I found the downloads section, and I also found out that PlayStation Store was lying to me. It's not 30GB, it's 70GB! So be prepared to give up one or two games if you want to play it. I do seriously recommend playing it though. Played for about half an hour myself and can't remember the last time I had this much fun playing a game! This thread is open for talk about the game if you all want to, I just had an issue that I was having trouble resolving is all.
  20. Yay! Thank you :)
  21. I have bookmarked it, will read it when I have more time, and then get back to you :-)
  22. So, with all of the encouragement and fussing from friends I've made at school, I finally started sharing my writing beyond mere poetry. I submitted a piece to our school's fiction contest and last night I submitted a short story to an online publication with the hope of them liking it and buying it. In the meantime, however, I've posted a fan story on my blog. "Media tie-in" is probably the better descriptor, but the general idea is that the characters are of my own creation and the plot of the story is mine, so it's my story, it just happens to be set in someone else's universe. I wrote a Witcher story for one of my classes that was pretty popular among my peers, so I decided I'd try my hand at sharing it with the world at large. For anyone interested in reading it, it can be found at the following link: https://thedeainthemachina.blogspot.com/2018/10/a-sorceresss-choice-witcher-fan-story.html?fbclid=IwAR0ATu4TBuJ1VeljI0okqHaX9XUC91FHzuF1NwcMtR-9o8H8mUCN8rsze1Q Please let me know what you all think! I have some other ideas I'm working on, although two of them are novels, and I will keep you all posted on the other two that I've submitted. ~Rhannan
  23. Not doubting you but sounds very related to Tolkien. Do you think that Tolkien might have known something about this?
  24. I'll just be over here, making more cookie soldiers
  25. I'll stand behind this incredibly cute and edible army you've assembled. Wouldn't want any of them to get a silly idea like retreating now would we *Licks lips*
  26. Ummmm... Cookie soldiers form up, there is a threat on all Dragon kind, one that could bring about its extinction
  27. Let it rain caffeine down upon us!!! Let us swim in the water of life and rejoice!!!
