Internet! I has it! After... heck, it's been a few months, I think. Seems like longer. Anyway, once I get over the initial ohmygodmustvieweverypageever, I'll probably post a bit more here. And maybe work on fanfic that hasn't been worked on in... ever >>;

In other news, I'm working on a conlang. Well, another one - the one I started back in high school is getting shelved indefinitely, and I'm making a fresh start. It's... kind of nice, really, not to be constrained by the old language. Don't get me wrong, it's still got a special place in my heart, but I enjoy the freedom. It's also nice that I have a somewhat better grasp on linguistics, although I've still got a fair distance to travel in that regard.

Now to see how long it takes me to come up with a solid list of phonemes....

Oh, and iced tea has officially made way for hot tea. Goodbye summer, please let the door hit you on the way out. *glomps autumn*

Today was a lot of fun. I got out of bed late, around noon, and took a quick walk around the neighbourhood before settling down to finish (start) D&D planning. The rest of the gang showed up around 3:30, and we went out hiking before we started the session. The hike itself was really fun, down the tracks and out along the creek to where it joins up with a larger creek. We found a couple of pawpaw trees with ripe fruit, and picked what we could. It's an odd taste, compared to other fruits, but they're pretty delicious once you get used to them.

After the hike was D&D, which went at least marginally better than last week. I'm starting to get bored with the mini-campaign, though, and really want to get back to the main campaign. Just a few more sessions and this one'll be over....

I've been listening to Óró Sé do Bheatha 'Bhaile on and off for the last hour or so (again), and I've realised that I really want to write a fic with England and Ireland and maybe some others focused around Gráinne Ní Mháille. I've been pretty fascinated with her story ever since I learned about it, and it's been hovering in the back of my mind for a while now. I've never really written fic that's dealt with a serious theme before, so even if I do end up following this plot bunny (and I most likely will; Ireland is a character I've been wanting to write for a while) I'll probably do some shorter serious pieces first to get a feeling for it.

I definitely want to finish Forget Me Not first before I start on that, though, although I may do some of the shorter serious pieces before FMN is done. Just need to figure out what I want to do... maybe something else involving Ireland so I can get a feel for writing her as well?

Yes, I know there technically isn't an Ireland; I've had her in my head!canon for a while, though, and she simply won't go away. So I'm writing her.

So it's five in the morning and I'm still up, working on the second chapter for Forget Me Not, despite knowing full well that I have to be up in five hours to help with yardwork. *sigh*

But, I'm liking this chapter a lot better than the first one, and I like the first one pretty well. No Canada in this chapter, sadly, but he should at least be a major part of the third chapter. I'm still not sure how many chapters I'll have when it's finished, but it'll probably be in the 6+ range. Just depends on how long the plot takes to pan out.

Anyway, that was my little bit of babbling about writing for the day; now back to the actual writing like the good little fanficcer I am.

Tea, sir!

Last night, as a consequence of staying up 'til six to plan for today's D&D session and finding that hot tea was the only caffeinated beverage in the house, I got back into my hot tea habit. I've been drinking the stuff pretty much nonstop since. Since I've been running low on the three or four blends of black tea I usually drink, I decided to delve into the Big Bag o'Tea and actually separate the tins out by type. I had thought that most of the rest of what was in there was green tea (ick), but it turns out there were about five more black teas that I didn't even know about. So now I've got a nice Darjeeling steeping (<3) and I'm actually enjoying the prospect of going through some of this tea in over the next couple of weeks.

So I finally went and got a DW account. Looks pretty nifty so far, way better than Livejournal at the very least. So hooray for starting over, new name, new email, new friends. Well, no friends yet, but that'll happen eventually. Sooooo yay for typing to no-one in particular. And now back to tonight's regularly scheduled RP.
