Yayayayay I'm awesome.

I figured out why, after a lot of effort on my part, this little fic (I'm going to stop calling them ficlets cause with my tendency to babble all of them are going to end up as full blown fics, and is it really fanfic if you're writing about characters you've created in an original universe?) for one of my old RPCs wasn't working. It's because I was writing it entirely wrong.

So, fic's basically my character dancing in a tavern (Yes it was a geeky high fantasy RP, I liked it, sue me), but I completely missed the mark on what I was trying for, instead of showing why she was dancing and how it made her feel I went off on a long ramble about how she learned to dance in the first place.

So I selected all of that and hit backspace.

I'm starting over, and this time I have a very firm grasp on what I want to do with this and how to accomplish this. Maybe this writing thing won't be so bad after all.

So yesterday I kicked myself in the head (Not literally of course, but boy I wish that kind of flexibility).

If any of you imaginary readers know me (Okay two of the not-so imaginary ones do but whatever), you know I'm a video game geek at heart. Sure I've broadened the span of my geekdom to include comics and fantasy books/novels, but that's where my main font of geekdom lies. Now I'm not as obsessive as some people I know, but over the course of... 11 years (Or nearly 11 because I got my first console, a N64 for Christmas in 98) I've bought several games, played some of them, and then never or rarely touched them again. It's not that I didn't like them, I just never kept up with them like I should have, some because I got more games that took up my time, and some because... I just got lazy.

So I decided, after being bitched out by [livejournal.com profile] jennally  for not finishing Silent Hill 3 and Resident Evil 4 (WELL I'M SORRY BUT I DON'T HANDLE SURVIVAL HORROR WELL) to go through my games and beat a set amount of games every week.

The list of games to beat, in order of play:

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Yes yes I KNOW, I fail so hard but after I spent hours combing through all the other dungeons I didn't want to finish the last one e.e)
Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht (Again, at the last level, but I heard my characters would need to be at least level 60 to beat the last dungeon and they're like 45-50)
Silent Hill 3 (Uhh... I think I'm in the sewers right now, why does every Survival Horror game need a sewer level? It's like the ice and fire levels in Action games)
Shadow of The Colossus (Because I haven't played it AT ALL since I got it, I think it's still got that new game smell- Yep it does)
Ninja Gaiden (Never finished it when I had my original Xbox, but I started a new file on my 360 a couple months ago)
Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy (At the Aura viewing level or whatever.)
X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse (It shames me, that as much as I like the X-Men I never bothered to finish this. No idea where I am in this)

There are probably more but I can't think of them.

Right now I'm only doing the first 4, out of those I think Silent Hill 3 and Shadow of The Colossus will take the longest but who knows, hopefully this won't kill me.

Wish me luck y'all.
