So a friend paid for the artist and WoW-Player SegoLily to make a couple of portraits for me of my role-play toons. First, I picked Wynfor, my worgen hunter, in his human form of course.



He's got a sort of playful grin, a hint at his love of mischief and teasing (something he's slowly gaining back after finding twu luv, awww). She managed to make him look older, like I wanted since he's in his thirties and has spent a lot of time outdoors getting the good old sun damage.

The second pick was a no-brainer for me. Folami. I wanted hers to be like a portrait that'd be hanging up in the Mournlight estate, and I have to say it came out so beautifully.



I'm so impressed with how lovely she turned out to be, and it's so nice to have an actual picture reference for her now. Given the length of her hair, this is post-Ulduar adventure, and she's once again whole in her mind and more sure of herself and her power.

Edit: She's wearing Black Embersilk Gown in case people were curious about the dress.

Just...wow, thanks to Seranthe of WrA and Segolily for the amazing artwork. I'm beyond touched and blown away tonight.

I've done nothing more than install the game and log in for a few seconds to check things out, but I suspect I'll dedicate some time to learning the mechanics and playing around on it when Sam's not playing.

My battle tag is Folami#1301 if anyone plays and wishes to friend me.

This song...it means a lot to me and I know it's stupid to post a YouTube video after what happened in your life, but I've always loved its message and just...it gave me comfort when I lost people. I'll be lighting a candle for you and your family tonight. It's all I can do. That and offer copious amounts of e-hugs and an ear.



Lyrics:

When the dark wood fell before me
And all the paths were overgrown
When the priests of pride say there is no other way
I tilled the sorrows of stone

I did not believe because I could not see
Though you came to me in the night
When the dawn seemed forever lost
You showed me your love in the light of the stars

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

Then the mountain rose before me
By the deep well of desire
From the fountain of forgiveness
Beyond the ice and fire

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We'll rise above these earthly cares

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me
Please remember me

Apparently Espernet is experiencing a DDoS attack. Did the server get sold to the Russians?

So, uh, hope nobody had any plans for any FFRPG or D&D tonight!

We got to play our first session of Ivalice in weeks, and it got off to a hilarious start with banter between Nevena and the bad guy.

[21:13] <@Newbie_X> "But I must admit, Guildenstern, I will be very interested in crossing blades with you. Your family's stain has blackened the halls of Archades for generations too long."
[21:13] * +Wystan just chickles softly.
[21:13] <+Wystan> (( *chuckles ))
[21:13] <+Nevena`> "Where as yours has only stained your mother's dress."
[21:14] <+Lohste> "...*snfrk*!"
[21:14] <@Newbie_X> ((Okay, you know what? Nevena, take a TP for that. Owie.))
[21:14] * +Lohste coughs a few times.
[21:14] <Mija> "Niiiice."
[21:14] <+Lohste> "Poor fool. I've no remedy for venom such as that."

And then the boss turned into a giant monster tree and there were puns. So many puns. (From our OOC room.)

[21:23] <Mija> and thus the party spent the rest of the battle making tree puns
[21:24] <@Nevena`> Well, we ahve to keep to our roots.
[21:25] <Wystan> oh leave it alone.
[21:25] <Mija> and this is why I love you guys
[21:26] <@Newbie_X> Yeah, I think you're barking up the wrong tree with that last pun spelling, Sam.
[21:26] <Lohste> I know. I've been pining for this campaign to restart.
[21:26] <Wystan> has the other branch been running at all?
[21:27] <Lohste> I think they've gone to seed.
[21:27] <@Newbie_X> It's been thorny going, but they are continuing.

This is why I miss FFRPG and all my friends. :)

To my maternal grandfather (Army, WWII), my father (Marines), three of my uncles (Navy and Army, one served in Vietnam), a couple of my cousins (Navy and Army, one served in Iraq), [livejournal.com profile] ninjaweazel AKA Sam (Navy), [livejournal.com profile] xandraius (Marines), a couple of classmates from high school, and to anyone who I have inadvertently missed both living and dead:

Thank you for your service.

Also, yesterday was the Marine Corps birthday. Semper Fi!

(And if anyone gets smart, yes, I can be both an unforgiving bleeding heart liberal and be patriotic. Shocking!)

Dear RP Friend,

Damnit, I'm supposed to be focusing on writing for Selene, not theory crafting about Folami and her backstory/future possible character development. Furthermore, I shouldn't be feeling a desire to start reading up on Lore as it relates to demons and their history with high elves.

Stop providing me with such fascinating unbelievably geeky conversation!

Grrr,

Jade

P.S.: I do, however, appreciate the distraction from this whole Sandusky/Paterno/PSU bullshit.

...why do I feel like there's going to be a huge-ass post coming about my theories and ideas, plus a good bit of philosophical rambling on the nature of good versus evil and what those terms actually mean.

No, this isn't a product of Japan. The animators are French (or at least have French names). And in spite of how, ah, disturbing and graphic it is, there's no nudity at least, just nothing is really left up to the imagination.

[11:32] <Doman> allegory for the loss of innocence that comes with teenage promiscuity
[11:32] <Doman> it's all a heavyhanded message encouraging abstinence
[11:34] <JadeNSC> lol yeah.
[11:34] <JadeNSC> Like every 1980s horror movie *ever.*
[11:35] <JadeNSC> There's a reason Scream said, "Don't have sex, do drugs, or drink alcohol." Best example is in the original Friday the 13th when Kevin Bacon gets skewered from beneath his bunk after banging one chick.

The music, at least, is pretty neat.

Elisha linked me to a YouTube video of the current beta testing for the new Titan Weapon power set in CoH.



And then this happened:

[10:27] <JadeNSC> ....so I can make Cloud?
[10:27] <Doctor_Gerbil> [10:23] <Doctor_Gerbil> I am so making a Cloud Strife knock-off with a silly name like Cumulonimbus Troubles
[10:27] <Doctor_Gerbil> [10:23] <Doctor_Gerbil> (Cumulonimbus is latin for 'don't wear suede')

Nah, we aren't Final Fantasy nerds at all. Also, after hanging around together for about five or six years, we totally don't occasionally inhabit each other's head spaces. That'd just be silly.

*settles in to read up on some Astrophysics filed away in here*

In other CoH news, Sam and I went trick-or-treating last night and I am kicking myself for not copy+pasting one funny bit of conversation between (the original) NinjaWeazel and Ballari, but here's a basic run-down of what happened.

* NinjaWeazel gets a treat and is rewarded a Crey Security costume.
NinjaWeazel: (Being his old flirty self despite knowing and respecting Ballari's orientation.) "Heeeeey, wanna get frisked?" *wink, wink*
* Ballari, roughly at the same moment, gets a Freakshow Stunner costume and puts it on.
NinjaWeazel: "...on second thought, no.

[23:55] <@JadeNSC> http://www.toplessrobot.com/2011/07/avatar_the_legend_of_the_biggest_damn_dog_and_to_a.php The sound you just heard was a fangirlish squee.
[23:57] <N_X[Semi-AFK]> Yeah, sorry about that. I couldn't resist squeeing there. I'll try to hold it in next time.
[23:57] <@JadeNSC> lol

Here's an open invitation for anyone else who's annoyed with me to remove me from their friend's list.

Not being passive-aggressive, just wanting to put it out there for anyone who's been thinking of removing me and worried it might upset me or something. Yes, even those of you who've been around for years now. I acknowledge that I don't always comment either because I don't know what to say or because I'm too anxious to put anything down, and I know this is a problem for a few people who are worried about creepy lurkers.

How many of you have a Facebook account? Is it active? Do you like it? Do you feel comfortable about your privacy? Should I have made a poll?

Just curious.

I always feel a bit like a creeper when I have a dream about people I know only through LiveJournal/Dreamwidth. Logically I know that I don't really have much control over what I dream, especially when I'm in the haze of cold medicine and massive sinus congestion, but I still feel a bit skeevy and that maybe I've somehow invaded another person's privacy. I only know them as text on a screen, why should I dream about them as if they were right there in front of me.

To be fair, I don't think this dream was really supposed to be about the who and more about the what in terms of the events, but I'm still stuck on both the who and the what. I don't plan to tell this person because, well, it'd be even creepier and really probably disturbing for hir. I think it's enough that I'm creeped out a bit and wondering why the hell my brain chose that person, etc.

Yes, I'm silly and weird.

Seeing as I'll be getting people following me here on Dreamwidth who aren't following me on LJ, I figured I should post about my filters here to save me the hassle of asking each new person what zie wants to read. If you're on LJ, you should already be on the same filters here that you are there (I fixed it last week). If you still notice a difference, let me know.

For nearly a decade now I've been collecting Buddha statues here and there. I'm not Buddhist, but there's just some sort of spiritual attraction to Buddha and the different aspects of him depicted in statues and figurines. There's just something inside of me that feels calmed by focusing on an image of a meditating Buddha. I can't really explain it. I liken it to the way my grandmother collected owl figurines or my aunt's obsession with collecting roosters (don't ask -- I think it's a University of South Carolina thing), except there is definitely a more spiritual connection for my "collection."

I mention this because Deec, my friend of many years, called me yesterday to verify my new address and told me he had a housewarming gift for me. (He's thrilled I'm out of Barnwell since he grew up there too and knows what it's like for people like us.) Well, I forgot Deec works at a FedEx/Kinko's so my package got here in under 24 hours. And this is what was in it:


My new Buddha statue (with some incense burning in front of it).


I'm hoping to set up a permanent altar soon (I need to hit the thrift stores to look for some new furniture stuff) and I think this Buddha will have a home there simply because the present meant a lot to me and it touched me that he remembered this one little thing about me.
