ORGANIZATION

Cue sheepish grin. This is an organization of three. #hairflip Currently my blog is hosted here, which is mostly rambling frets about pop items, often video games, but as said I aim to start amassing a tidy set of shrines.

HITS

Though I say it myself: "a bad writer's bad blog," meant with the optimism that this will change. Though I used to participate too much in the Chuck-and-Blair Gossip Girl ship via tumblr, this is where I go to do my longform popculture worrying. Mostly I use word press not because I need it, but because it gives me a personal sense of gloss. You know? Sometimes it's nice to put a bit of money where my mouth is.

VOX POPULI

A shrine to Red, of Transistor. I wrote a bit on why I find Red so compelling, but really, in short, I think that this tragic game enables Red to express herself powerfully without a single word.

BOMBSHELL

A shrine to Quistis Trepe, of Final Fantasy VII. You would think a gorgeous, intelligent, preternaturally talented dominatrix instructor would be difficult to relate to, but Quistis and Squall (and Seifer, belatedly) always struck me as having inner lives deeply in turmoil yet wanting desperately to do things right. I get that.

DREAMS

Not yet created, but my sleeves are rolled up. Please see the all too ambitious line-up below.

CHATTER

A shrine either Aloth or Kana Rua, of Pillars of Eternity. I spend 90% of my playtime in Pillars frantically trying to ensure nothing happens because I am a chicken, but one of my favorite parts is the casual dialogue your party engages in as you run around doing side-quests. It reveals more than the traditionally dramatic plot moments. Kana is a scholar who is deeply troubled by the misuse of knowledge and can go on and on about it - and Aloth has soul trapped inside him that sometimes gives sass in a Scottish accent whenevever he's in trouble. What's not to love? I only have the brainpower to do one, but they're both really worthy of consideration

SPINSTER

A shrine Zenobia Fox, of The Kraken King. Dude, Meljean Brook managed to take something as ostensibly trash as steampunk romance novels, and make them one of my favorite, most re-read series due to compelling characters and a really original uniting of the tropes of the genre. The Kraken King is my favorite (romance) novel, largely because I identify strongly with its protagonist, Zenobia, an aging virgin serial writer who is deeply distrustful, fanciful, and practical all at once.BR> PERCENT COMPLETED ● 0.0%

PEACEABLE

A shrine to Urdknot Wrex, of Mass Effect. When I played ME2, I was all over that Garrus, but upon playing ME1, I found my Shephard's reasons for doing so .. shallow. I am 2 paragon 2 deal with that sniper, it turns out - and I found myself surprised at how charming I found the big amphibian lug. In contrast to Garrus, he didn't seem to give a space-rat's ass about my opinion. And for reasons we won't examine, I found that attractive.

CONSTITUTION

A site dedicated to my roleplaying characters. I've been roleplaying since I was thirteen. Of all my internet life, that surely deserves a web corner of its own.

A WEBSITE OF ONE?

Ater lying about my age to get into Neopets way-back-when, I stumbled into roleplaying, and then mystical horse politics roleplaying, and then apocalypse werewolf rolepaying, then the tamer business of pretending to be a magical person. As soon as you hit free forums, graphics become a factor, and as I started to hunt for gorgeous grunge brushes, I found a now defunct website, Relique.net. I also got into Final Fantasy through FF9 and FF8, and that propelled me towards a part of the internet I am delighted still exists: Rinoa.nu and related sites.

In short: it's been my dream since I was a middleschooler to one day have a personal domain - a hip squaregirl domain, with character shrines and everything. This is my first step towards that. At age ... twenty seven, which is off the desired timeline, but it ain't over 'til it's over. I am attempting to blog for similar reasons. It's been my dream forever. Nothing is stopping me, so time to write - and write code.
