Coscraft has been moved out of our flat into its own rented office! This means we get the master bedroom back. We've decided to stay in the smaller bedroom and use the master for bookcases and things like that. There has been a lot of moving things around (Coscraft was moved out with help from some wonderful friends) and now the flat is in chaos. But it'll be sorted... eventually... when that's done, it'll be time to look at getting (yet another) wardrobe. A fitted one, hopefully, although that seems to cost a freakish amount of money. We'll see.

The Fire Emblem: Awakening fandom has been very kind to me, I got really nice messages from people and OMG FANART and useful concrit. My fic is being severely overrated and I don't know why (jesus, it's pretty much mediocre compared to other things I've written in other fandoms). I'm still in a HOLY-SHITTO kind of state, more so because I'm literally a n00b so I'm just waiting for the day when I commit some faux pas or they discover I'm an imposter, and then be completely disowned.

My birthday had been celebrated last week! Saw friends and got lovely gifts, including Secret Codes & Battleships and We Are Smug. I prefer the former much more, I think, though I've only listened to the latter once so far so the jury's still out really. Storme is getting me Xenoblade Chronicles and the limited collector's edition of Drakengard 3. I also got a Monobear (D:), chocolates, baking equipment and things.

Lastly, I leave you with this: Bakumatsu Rock, a rhythm game with historical Japanese figures but set in modern Japan. In which Tokugawa Yoshinobu (and those who work for him, including the Shinsengumi) can sing the Heaven's Song, which brainwashes people, and that is how the Tokugawa government rules the country. Listening to music that is not Heaven's Song is punishable by death. Along comes Sakamoto Ryoma and his mates, who decide they will use rock music to free people's souls and revolutionise Japan. And so it becomes the Freedom Rockers (Sakamoto Ryoma, Katsura Kogoro and Takasugi Shinsaku) vs the Top Idols Shinsengumi (Hijikata Toshizo and Okita Souji) in battles of songs.

I shit you not.

And I'm so coplaying the hell out of this.

One of the really good artists in FE:A fandom sent me a PM telling me that they like my fic and apparently there is a bunch of them (ie artists, including others whose work I follow) on twitter who wait for my fic updates and then read and flail together every chapter and then I replied like OMG BUT YOUR ART CHROM AND LUCINA AND MU AND WHAT IS THIS I NEVER GET FEEDBACK and they're like YOU KNOW MY ART WHAT IS LIFE FLAIL OH WE'RE ALL JUST REALLY SHY PEOPLE and I was like YES I KNOW YOUR ART SO MUCH AND I'M TOO SHY TO COMMENT TOO AND CAN'T REBLOG BECAUSE SPOILERS AHHHHHH TELL BLUE I LOVE THEIR STUFF TOO OHSHITFLAIL.

(I need FE:A backgrounds for my phone. And more icons for this LJ. But I'd just end up nicking fanart from everywhere.)

I've been so absorbed playing Fire Emblem: Awakening that I forgot to post fics. XD But such a good game, oh god. 3 hours in and I knew and loved the (dozens of) characters far more than I did after 15 hours of Drakengard 2 (which I still haven't finished). Fortunately Storme is finding it all very amusing; I keep trying to talk to her about it but she hasn't played it yet (it's on the 3DS which I'm hogging atm).

On Thursday we went with two friends to see Brian and Robin's Christmas Compendium of Reason, which was excellent. I have to say that cosmology and astronomy aren't my thing, so I actually nearly fell asleep during Brian Cox's bit. (Shut up. His voice was soothing.) But that was only a small part of the evening - the whole thing was 3+ hour celebration of nerdity (with comedy attached), which Storme has talked about on her LJ already so I won't repeat. I laughed far too hard and learned a bit, and also surprised myself by being able to understand a man who spoke roughly 20 words per second.

Started an exercise routine yesterday. Was dizzy and seeing stars at the end, but repeating the same exercises today and I didn't feel nearly as bad at the end. Not sure if sheer luck or actual progress, because surely progress doesn't happen this fast?

And with that, I'm going to go back to playing FE:A. I could finish the game right now but oh no, gotta trigger more dialogues because funny. [livejournal.com profile] evaporate, you're so right about Henry!Gerome. Also, Frederick wants Ravioli to help him with his gag reflex. Oh god did I die. And after the emblem got snatched, because Ravioli (my male MU) is married to Lucina, the conversation there was kind of sweet. And then he told her he loved her as much as he loved Chrom. AND I DIED AGAIN. Because headcanon. It's all over my facebook, Ravioli has such serious pining for Chrom, and I swear, Ravioli has fans now, some of my FB friends look forward to my updates of his adventures. Anyway I'm going back to the game now bye.
