We'll Never Know Until We Try.

Oh hi, arc words. Nice to see you. Yeah, so I've just started up Suikoden: Bob Tierkreis. Lol whut for naming the Tenkai Star after a 12K OC. It's sort of a shame that I didn't keep up my theme of KoF characters, but whatever. I have to get used to Suikoden-type battles after the Final Fantasy Tactics meets Valkyrie Profile affair that was Covenant of the Plume. (Suck it, Iseria Ethereal Queen. Suck. It. Also, thanks, game, for making Wyl a Destroyer of Worlds after that hellish tenth go around. Meh.)

Right. Tierkreis. I'm keeping this banter above a cut because I'm only about two hours in.

Again, I need to get back into the Suikoden-type battle groove. Holy crap, I can power game again.

The voice acting. Good Lord. That is some inconsistent shiz up in there.

I'm all for the wacky AU hijinks.

The art style's kind of generic, but there's something there that I like. I'll get used to it, I'm sure.

What else...? I overpaid for bought a 12K art book, and it came in crazy fast from Japan. I'm a sucker for character design/concept art (LOL, surly Gyousou in his daikyuu is surly), and since this stuff is all line art, it'd be fairly easy to scan in and color.

And a final amusing thing: I'm working on feed back surveys for the advisers in teacher education. They're giving me a list of names so that I can start spamming the link to the survey. So I'm going along, and then: William Lawrence. Alas, not spelled correctly, but still rather amusing. Would he be in math, do you think, or sciences?

Won't you miss me like a hole in the head?

Because I do, boy, and it's cool, boy...

So I took advantage of GameStop's sale last weekend and binged on games that were in the buying queue (Notice that I didn't say anything about the playing queue.). I managed to finish most of Covenant of the Plume, but I've still got to finish off the Seraphic Gate. Still, the queue grows longer. I now have copies of Final Fantasies I - III and Persona 3 FES (Hence the title. I've been wanting to use those lyrics to talk about Persona 3 for such a long time...)

Last week was also my grandmother's 90th birthday, and the trip to the mall to get supplies (dress, accessories, etc.) was how I was in the vicinity of a GameStop in the first place. I managed to dance at the party, OMG, and doing Kid's Table Redux is always fun.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of stuff out there for Covenant of the Plume, does there? Can anyone point me in the direction of gen-fic? Wyl-centric, Cheripha-centric, or Phiona-centric? (sigh) I've sort of got an idea for a piece on Wyl and another on Phiona, but I want to save the invoking of Rule 35 until I know for sure something's not out there.

Dear Covenant of the Plume:

I realize that you're very new, and it's nice to resurrect fandoms that have been asleep for a bit. (By the way, Suikoden would like to note that it would like some play time, too...) However, it is getting very close to final projects time, and I cannot afford to have a very shiny distraction. Please understand. I'll have free time soon enough. Please hold on until then.

P.S. Making me whip on the slash goggles within five minutes of booting up the system is mean. Especially because of what happens afterwards. Just so you know.

So, finished off Valkyrie Profile. So, friends list, any recommendations for VP fic? Gen, preferably, but a pairing fic is good, too. (I got the A ending, so I'm good for anything that uses that.)

Damn you, VP, I wanted the A Ending! (sigh) I might as well charge on through and get the B Ending. I'm on Chapter 7, anyhow. I played through it on Normal, and Hard shouldn't be much of a problem.
