I've been having issues with my ISP for the last week so I haven't had a chance to give the new patch a go. However, I did get my blood elf hunter to level 85, and started two new characters (I know I really should focus on the old ones I have but I just can't), a troll shaman and an undead mage.

With regards to the undead mage I was struck by inspiration while putting her together to write a story so yeah, now I have two fanfics to do. Jesus. I'm regressing. On the good side of things I am having fun writing this one. It's a lot simpler than the one I want to write for Thiya because it's very linear with a definite plot whereas Thiya's is just a non-chronological log of things that happen to her with a minor overarching plot line.

I'm basically writing about a zombie that takes body parts to replace her own because she wants to recapture the essence of her youth. She has no eyes and cries all the time because it's fucking magic. She also fights crime.

I wrote her resurrection scene today and it was really entertaining for me. I haven't felt this good about writing something in so long. Usually the entire thing is a torturous ordeal and I end up hating the entire experience and the product that comes of it. Now I just need to figure out what I should do with it. Like should I show it to people? I mean it'd be cool if a lot of people in my guild wanted to read it. Where would I put it though? I have an Ao3 account but from what I've seen pretty much all the writing on there is really good and I feel stupid putting mine next to it, but I don't want to go anywhere near The Pit even though my writing is on par with that level of crap. And then what if I got blocked and couldn't write any more and people wanted me to finish it and I couldn't? Ugh this is all so stressful. :o

Also before my Internet started konking out I beat Diablo III on normal mode with my demon hunter. Good times.

So I've been talking with my BFF today about this bloody fanfiction and what it could become if I were to keep at it. I've found that I've had a lot of problems off the bat while thinking ahead and I was bouncing them off of him because for some reason when I explain these things to people who haven't had the context of the game to fall back on it helps me because I have to explain stuff and it helps me figure things out. So I send this wall of text to him like an asshole.

Clearly I'm thinking too hard.
wow_silamai: (worgen rogue)
 I'm writing this to procrastinate from writing fic SHHHHHHHHHHHHHH DON'T TELL ANYONE.

In all seriousness though I have like, 1,400 words of WoW fanfic surrounding one of my latest characters: Thiya the warrior princess ALALALALALALA.  She's a Pandaran Monk and I love her.  She's pretty much the first melee character I've ever taken wholeheartedly seriously as a character; my Tauren Paladin is still back in the 40s, though I do intend to bring him up to snuff once I'm done with leveling my Blood Elf Hunter.

So many characters, so little time.

Took a brief hiatus from WoW a few weeks back just to get back in the groove of everything else.  'Everything in moderation' is a hard tenet to follow sometimes.  I did end up coming back earlier than expected but all in all it was worth it.

God damn it I need to update these icons I'm pretty sure I deleted all these characters.

I feel like within the last few months I've regressed to a teenager...or finally hit my teenager years 5 years too late.  I've become addicted to anime, J-pop (let's be real, this was several years in the making), and now I'm writing fanfic.  Terrible, terrible fanfic.  I haven't written fiction in several years and the decline in overall skill shows.  But then again I read back through one of my original stories late last month and I am in shock at how terrible I was, considering I thought I was hot shit at the time.  I suppose this is just part of growing up.  I'm glad I never actually tried to get published.  How embarrassing.  But I say that all like fanfic is the worst thing ever but in reality I do read it on occasion and like a lot of it and I know that it is difficult to write and requires just as much research as original fic and yeah so I may joke about looking down upon it but I really don't.  One of my guildmates has a Tumblr for his goblin and I love it when he updates it.  AND THAT'S NOT JUST BECAUSE ONE OF MY TOONS WAS IN IT OKAY.

This blog is becoming increasingly not-WoW related.  D:

All in all, Thiya is level 90 and pumped up all to shit.  I still have a long way to go; I've sacrificed exploring the Isle of Thunder in favour of leveling Aleice, my Hunter.  I have some wicked 500+ iLevel gear but overall Thiya's still got a long, long way to go.

 Leveling as a clothy in Pandaria is fucking difficult.  I'm almost there, 90.  Almost there.
wow_silamai: (tauren priest)
 Oh hi.

Jeez, what have I done since my birthday?  Well, only pretty much everything.

Let's see, my Tauren Priest (omg I need to update my icons omg) maxed out, then I got a Goblin Mage/Madam (who sells people for sugar) and maxed her out.  I'm working on another Tauren right now (Paladin) and a medley of other characters.  Overall I'm having a good time.  Guild's amazing.  Lots of in jokes.

Still doing mostly DPS in dungeons.  I heal on occasion but mostly avoid it like the plague.  There was this one time recently with my Paladin where even though I'm a DPS spec I ended up tanking the majority of a dungeon and it went reasonably well.  I've also taken to the Raid Finder and have killed Deathwing a few times (yay).

You'd think I'd write more beyond this since there's been so much time but no.  I can't think of anything off the top of my head.  Hopefully I'll update this more regularly from now on.

It's my birthday today.

I've done a lot of stuff since the last time I updated.

Huh, I had much more to say but I can't remember it now. I'll come back to this later.

I be looking pretty badass now.

I'm hoping to hit level 50 before the week is over. I started at level 28 and now I'm at 47. Clearly I have no life.
wow_silamai: (tauren priest)
 I've been playing sporadically the last few weeks.  I tried to take a break to play the new Zelda but I ended up coming back after a week.  I've created new characters, deleted old ones (I got rid of my Undead Mage, oh dear), and the like.  So here's the new roster:

New characters and other things that have happened to me lately. )

That's all I've been doing lately, I think.  I keep switching between all of my characters because I just can't decide what I want to do with my time, if I'm even playing at all.  At least I have a lot of rest going on, so I'm gaining levels like whoa.

 Werewolves.  Wearing.  Top hats.

Best.  Game.  Ever.

 I have a Tauren Priest on my friend's server now, yay. :D
wow_silamai: (human warrior)
Even though I do play both sides I think I'm starting to prefer Alliance over Horde. But that might be because I've never had much interest in orcs and trolls and so on.

I think I'm going to try playing Priest next. Maybe I'll make that character on my friend's server and finally join her guild.

 Playing with my mom was a bit of a disaster.  It's partly my fault; I don't have the patience to teach.
wow_silamai: (Default)
 I've convinced my mom to give WoW a try.  We're going to be Night Elves together. D:

WHAT ARE YOU DOING. WHAT WHAT WHAT ARE YOU DOING.

Good Lord, I've become Kelly's mom.

wow_silamai: (human warrior)
 My warrior has no fashion sense whatsoever.  WHAT WHAT WHAT ARE YOU DOING.

I mean at least my mage had some cohesion going on with colours and patterns.  Put on a robe and nothing else was visible; therefore, everything matched.  With this warrior it's all gotta be about the exposed midriff, apparently.  I don't even know.  Maybe I'll get some mail that'll fully cover the body.  I really should get to re-doing the face, too.  I don't know what I was thinking.
wow_silamai: (human warrior)
 I'm so amazed at how much work went into designing Azeroth.  I was flying from Stormwind into the territories around Ironforge and just looking around the mountains and volcanos.  It was really interesting to see.  I hope I get to go there eventually.

My mom wanted to give the game a go so I let her create a character (she picked a Night Elf Rogue) and now I want to make a new character because their starting location looks really cool and fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff--

At this rate I'll never reach the Burning Crusade expansion, let alone much else.

I MET A FUCKING DRAGON. 

So I'm finishing up quests for this battle for Andorhal.  I get the Alliance to retreat and my next mission is to report back to Lady Sylvanas over at the inn.  I've barely even started my walk back when all of a sudden I'm dead and everything is on fire.  And then I suddenly get an achievement for dying in said fire.  It looked like a volcano was erupting under my feet.  My first thought was that this was some kind of final assault from the Alliance, but when I respawned I was over at The Mender's Stead where everything there was on fire too and they weren't involved in the battle.  I started to panic a little because I hadn't finished any of the quests for the Argent Crusade in restoring some of the Plaguelands.

I managed to get back to town and find my body everything is still burning, but I finally manage to navigate my way through, expecting to find Sylvanas in the middle or town or something, but no, she's in the middle of the inn.  The inn that's on fire.  I went around it a few times trying to figure out a way in when the fire started to die down.  So I ran inside only to find her where she was originally, dead.  Then she faded away.  I'm just like "Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck," but my brain started to process everything more rationally.  Maybe this was a later quest that someone else happened to be doing and I just got spoiled.  No biggie; I've never been one to whine about spoilers (I end up looking for them more often than not).  So I exit and return, and Sylvanas is quite alive and I finish the quests.

Then when I resummoned my Water Elemental it was still suffering from a debuff that was...I dunno.  The title had to do with Deathwing's flames.  Then i was like "OHHHHHHH," and finally understood.  Basically I got blown up by a fucking dragon that I don't see for another few expansions (I only have the Battle Chest and, therefore, am only up to The Burning Crusade).  That was crazy.

I loved it.

 Ugh, I've only been playing for a couple of weeks and my Undead Frost Mage is about to hit level 40.  I don't know whether to be proud that I stuck with one character so long or disturbed at the fact that I managed to go so far in such a short period of time.  A guy I work with who plays can't fathom how I've gotten to such a high level without doing any dungeons.  I didn't think that was terribly difficult.  I've just been doing quest after quest and I've only had to grind for them once.

more musing. )
