So I wrote another chapter of my Undead Warcraft fic like a weirdo.

As per usual I really have to change my icons.

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.

 Awww yeah I know who the high elf from the Theramore scenario is.  Good old books.

 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.
wow_silamai: (tauren priest)
A few things have happened in the last while:

a) I hit level 60,
b) I'm almost halfway through getting a raptor for a mount (though raptors don't fly so it seems kind of obsolete beyond the novelty of having it),
c) I did my first and second dungeon, the first being very good and the second not so much, and
d) I got a new hat.

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.

 Oh my God I'm watching a Goblin do the Single Ladies dance.

 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:
