Fifteen minutes after the last conversation.

TOL: ...hypothetically--
ME: No. No, we are not writing an entire novel in second person.
TOL: It makes sense, though. Since I'm... how I am.
ME: We would drive our readers insane. Everyone hates second person! EVERYONE.
TOL: You don't.
ME: I'm already crazy.
TOL: You're just looking for excuses to write his point-of-view. *jerks thumb at Hiru* The narrative isn't going to be balanced if you use him.
ME: But--
HIRU: Now wait just a minute--
TOL: It'd be a challenge. Second person, present tense, don't drive your audience crazy.
HIRU: But what about me. The gaps in your narrative would be gargantuan!
TOL: They'd be gaps that the fandom would take care of, though. They're better left out.
ME: So, what, this entire assignment is basically worthless?
HIRU: Apparently. *snits*
ME: ...I fucking hate you all.


[EDIT]

ME: I'M LEAVING YOU.
ATM: That's nice, dear.
ME: I'M TAKING THE ICE CREAM WITH ME.
ATM: Mmhmm.
ME: I MAY BE GONE SOME TIME.
ATM: Pick up some milk on your way home.
ME: YOU'RE NOT THE STORY I MARRIED ALL THOSE YEARS AGO.
ATM: You do remember I'm due tomorrow, right?
cheloya: (ATM >> words)
SKEFF: Hey.
ME: What. Writing. What.
SKEFF: I think I might actually like to stay here after all.
TOL: You what?
ME: You WHAT?!
SKEFF: Well, they're dying. And if they die, the magic dies. And they don't have many healers left.
ME: But you.
TOL: But I.
SKEFF: You'll be busy in Iron Pot, anyway. Overseeing things. And you sent Youta down to help the village out, and her son's a better healer than I'll ever be.
ME: He what? You did-- huh? Guys, keep me informed--
SKEFF: And you don't suffer nearly enough stress around Auberon to keep up appearances.
TOL: But I.
SKEFF: And this way I actually will be considerably older when I get back to the real world.
TOL: ...huh.
ME: ............did you just rearrange the ending and half of the Full Circle arc so you can get laid faster.
SKEFF: Yup. :) And I get more magic power.
ME: ..................
TOL: ...... >_>;
ME: Well, I don't mind it. Nice plotting and justification. Good job.
SKEFF: I had to inherit something from my mother.
ME: Right. Now do you think you can get Tol to pay attention so I can actually, you know, hand this assignment in?
SKEFF: Nope. I'm in Faerie. Healing. *poof*
ME: Well, fuck.
TOL: .///.

[EDIT]

SKEFF: You needn't go on about it. I'll be home before you will, if I can find the right door.
TOL: ......oh.
ME: djhsdkskfhdk CAN YOU CONCENTRATE FOR FIVE MINUTES ON SOMETHING OTHER THAN HIS HAIR BEADS PLEASE.

[EDIT]

Adopt one today!

AHAHAHAHA. AFTER MANY MINUTES OF REFRESHING I HAS ANOTHER EGG.
cheloya: (GARFIELD >> are you judging me?)
I always forget how hectic it is over here. XD

Not having much success writing, but I have been slowly setting up for NaNo on Crowley, installing programs and the like. (I defeated MS installation fuckups because I am a genius, so all their programs are belong to me. Muwahahaha, etc.) Have written a few drabbly bits and pieces to get Xolotl and Ciorrnaich the hell out of my head, because they were making Tol nervous, and that didn't help anyone.

(Once they were distracted, he was more than happy to be written. Of course, neither of them remains distracted for long, so by the time I'm done with the redraft I'll probably have about 15k of Xolotl/Ciorrnaich interaction as well. -_-; Death.)
cheloya: (ATM >> hiru)
Dear Hiru,

How dare you take four fucking years to decide you really were the main character of AtM? Do you realise how I have suffered trying to avoid making this so out of a belief that no one would read it? And now you decide we can throw our goddamn readers in the deep end from page one and fuck anyone requiring backstory?

Fuck yourself, fuck your clan, fuck your boyfriend, fuck your liege-lord, and do it all with rusted barbed wire! You may be my one true baby but right now you are my one true HATE. D:<

NO LOVE, NO LOVE AT ALL,
Your Author.

P.S. - AUUUUUUUUUUUUGHSDFJsfagsksdfasdkfjhasjdfgasflayusdfhas.

*sob*


Of course I am not really angry about this. It means that Tol goes back to being an awesome quirky secondary character instead of a rather strange main character. It means I get to write all the sex he's going to be having, and the sequel makes a lot more sense. BUT STILL. Sneaky little drama queen bitch brat Whorey McSnitface!

(I'll stop calling him names when he starts looking remotely apologetic.)
cheloya: (BLEACH >> grrgh.)
According to Sarah Monette, Jeremy Brett would have been Felix in an audio book, could he have done an American accent. Given the bright red socks and the earring and the fact that he has played Sherlock Holmes, I do not doubt this in the slightest. XD

Also, it needs to be April now.

I have decided that I'm just going to write this terribly and then I am going to worry about what Tol can and cannot see in other people, because omniscience is terrible in a nineteen year old, even an observant nineteen year old, and given that Tol is also very bad at reading people other than Skeff, Leysa and Gillam, his taking notes on what Hiru is probably thinking when Hiru is a) blocking and b) glamoured to buggery is absolutely ridiculous - which is why Scene By a Brook needs to be from Hiru's perspective. If I don't get into his head, you won't get a decent picture of him or of Sanga, because so many of their cues are entirely out of the human - and particularly Tol's - sphere.

(I'm not going to university today. Can you tell?)

Still waiting on a phone call from my mother. Not worried, exactly, but vaguely annoyed because she said she'd call and didn't.

(Yes, I have looked up news pages for airline strikes and crashes. Just because I am not particularly worried does not mean I am not going to research the possible reasons I can actually keep an eye on.)

[EDIT]

To Do:
- shower
- breakfast
- clean kitchen

- write: auberon is creepy and likes little boys
- write: all your court are belong to aundin
- write: jewellery swap~! 8DDD
- write: scene by a brook
- write: ban is really grumpy in the morning
- celebrate!
- print for structural edit/revision
- go to ozlit tute if there is time uh, no.
- study kanji
- kanji exam
- grocery shopping


[EDIT]

Y'know, if I picked up a book and read the blurb I just wrote for AtM, I would go, "What? Vampires and faeries? What?" and promptly throw the thing away because clearly the author was on crack when they came up with that one.

:(
