You will notice a disconnect between post from 2018 and ones from 2019.
In the intervening year, Dungeons & Dragons took me over.
It was initiated by the gang at Critical Role (who I learned of by way of being a recommendation from watching Acquisition Inc, another online D&D game). As an anime fan, my interest was piqued by the fact that the cast are all voice actors and I had heard the work of many of them.
As I watched the episodes of their second campaign, I was draw into the multiverse that is 5th edition.
Next stop, Twitter. Finding a plethora of people and entities with a like interest. And finding an interest in writing in those worlds.
This ficcer had found her next fandom.
So here will be posts about Sorcerers and Barbarians. Rogues and Bards. A figuring out of characters rolled up by me. Maybe even crossovers with other fandoms of mine.
Oh, and the figuring out of how to be the best Villain I can be.
They say, in other lands, people meet and converse over boiled bean water, telling how the past tenday has been.
Don’t know what they got against mead or ale.
But pull up a chair and we’ll see if we can do better.
Was cold weather at the start. Been mild today and day before.
Got my arm bit burn, tending the fire at the festival. Doesn’t hurt though. Price you pay, eh?
Not much trade coming thru. Wonder if we’ll get bit more.
Might see about getting that Zemnian to teach me bit of the language. Helps to know a smattering. Can get you more coin, or let you know if they’re planning on running out.
Hmm, guess it was harder than thought, drinking and talking. Or cause nothing much doing. Might try again, though.

Well, it has been some time.

How have you been?
I can’t complain. Work proceeds as usual.
I am happy to say I did win this year’s NaNoWriMo, after last year’s dismal showing. And managed to make it to the All-Nighter we have here. 7 p.m. To 7 a.m. Which I much needed and helped me get over the hump.
But crazy December is on us, leaning into what is hoped will be a much different year of 2017. I refer more to those personalities that we have lost, so many more than seems to be the usual.
I shall shy away from the current political scene. We can all see the new layout of the land. Only thing that matters is how we personally react to the new reality.
I have finally gotten a new phone. My last two were old ones of friends. Woke up one day and discovered phone wouldn’t charge and got hot so off to the store. Still getting used to it. And wondering if there’s any hope of getting the files trapped on the old one.
I still been playing around with the bullet journal. Seeing if can make it work with a cheapy journal before spring for a upgrade for the new year.
Decided to do my own reading challenge on Facebook for next year, roped a few friends into it. Just one or two books a month under broad genres. Work up to that 50 book one been fighting the last couple years.
I loved Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I saw it with me best mate at a theatre where they bring food to your seat as you watch the movie. I had a good hamburger and fries with hot tea. Glad the Wizarding World is off to such a great continuation.
A friend of mine had a video spotlighted on the offical Wizarding World YouTube channel. He did it on cosplaying Newt Scamander.
I’m ready for a refill, can I get you another?
And don’t forget to visit the others.
Last night I went to a Silent Reading event, my first. And happily me best mate was able to attend as well.
It was at a local coffee place downtown, one whose facade I had admired from afar but had never entered. The Grand Central Coffee Company.
The venue was quite lovely as the stock pictures below show. We both had the chai, hot. I had a chocolate chip cookie and her a lime bar.
We sat on very comfy chairs upstairs in a small through way. There were around 40 attendees throughout the spacious venue.
It was a pleasant time, with the silence en masse broken only once by a patron at the bar who was not aware of the event and was unnerved by the silence enough to loudly ask everyone was so quiet and were we reading the same book or what.
Work permitting, it is definitely something my friend and I look forward to attending again.
