I need to write more.

Well, I need to write more that isn't RP, and preferably not fanfic. I haven't written original fic outside of NaNoWriMo in... I can't even remember. Six and a half years? If that angsty/creepy doodle that never actually used Lucius' and Narcissa's names counts as not-fanfic. Otherwise nine, all the way back to the pieces I wrote for the online creative writing class when I was living in Kansas City. Wow.

So I've gone back to 750 words. 'Cause that seems like a good number to shoot for each day. Not NaNo-pace, but big enough that it isn't just a matter of dashing something off to get it over with for the day. I can't remember my old login info, so I had to start a new account, and sadly have therefore lost my old stats, though actually I'm not sure they would even still be relevant after such a long time.

So eenyhoo, come join me over there. It's free, though after June 12th new accounts will have to pay to subscribe after 30 days, so get in under the wire ;)

EDIT: herp derp, I misread the membership page and it was June 12th of _last_ year. Oops. Now I do wish I could remember my old login info :p

It has been probably... a year and a half since I last went there. I was finding it really frustrating for some reason, I think because I always felt like I needed to have something valuable to say in each entry. Which, considering how I was using it (for personal thoughts I didn't want to share with everyone), was a bogus way of looking at it.

I DID just go check to see if I could remember my login/password info, and everything is still there at least.

I'm an "achievement wh*re" when I play video games and already I can tell I'll do the same thing with the Badges there. I MUST HAVE ALL OF THEM. Even the contradictory ones like morning poster and night owl.

Oh man... I am so about earning badges. I just NEED them.

Sporcle is one of my favorite time waster sites, and you can play the quizzes without an account, but I signed up for one anyway just so I can earn those fucking badges.

(off-topic, but tag Bingley ;) )

Sneaky bastards, making you sign up for badges. I'd be lost.

(I have the notifs in my inbox. When I'm in a lot of pain, I find it hard to return tags because my characters are normally in better moods than I am. But I'll try today.)

There are SO MANY badges. I don't know how I'm ever going to earn some of them.

Yikes, fair enough. I wasn't sure if it had disappeared or something. *hugs*

I'm just slow. >_>

I managed to return one tag to someone last night, but have a ton waiting for me right now.

Would it help at all if we/I fast-forwarded or skipped ahead or something? Warm blankie? Vicodin?

Vicodin would help tremendously. A warm blankie, I have. :P

I will be able to reply soon. I promise I'll get to it today. I just really struggle with RP when I'm feeling so poorly.

Okies. *hugs again* I'm genuinely not trying to be a nag, you take care of you, bb

I do not feel nagged. Also... you have a tag now. :D

Aww he's such a sweetheart!

He's so fucking helpful. It's adorable.

And I think it's truthy for him to care about her so much so quickly that he's just... there for her.

It is. In all his incarnations, Bingley is very open and warm and caring.

And Moiraine is so used to people being suspicious if not outright fearful. 'Oh noes, it's an Aes Sedai, she must be Up To Something.' She has literally never met anyone who is this open and sweet.

That's the thing with Lost In Austen... He may be my favorite Bingley, but I've never not liked Bingley. The revelation is Wickham, who I have always not liked, but who I absolutely LOVE in this series. And not just because Tom Riley could so get it. :P

It's interesting that his openness doesn't make her suspicious of him.

It is weird, yeah. Being what she is, she's not accustomed to just blindly trusting people, but he has this face that she figures couldn't lie if he wanted to.

He really is wholly incapable of dishonesty.

Also, y'know, she has fireballs if he tries anything funny... ;)
