Aunt Flow by saphsoul
Aunt Flow
Aunt Flow: Aw, no baby yet? Poor child, here, I'll cheer you up! I'll stay with you for the next week!

----------------------------------------

When Aunt Flow comes knocking 3 times in 4 weeks she's being a persistent bitch...rubbing it in my face that I'm not incubating.

Anyway...Uni Problems: when Aunt Flow visits at random times is it stress or is it some serious medical condition?

I have no idea...so if I don't wake up in the morning who would like to finish what I started and try to take out Madam Red for me?

Right...I'm probably gonna draw a follow-up to this at some point...really tempted...where Aunt Flow reveals her true colours either as a demon or just her turning the tables and impaling me through the Uter--I mean...abdomen...so...yeah...if I decide to procrastinate again that is...

FATE -- First Impressions by saphsoul
FATE -- First Impressions

Character 1: 'ey...*hic* who za kid?

Enon: *hands Character 1 3 beers*

GM: Unfortunately, your character is compelled to take and drink the beers...I believe one of your aspects is "enjoys a good drink" no? 

Player 1: *sigh*

Me: Well, since we gotta play to our aspects that means Enon's gotta steal something, right? Is there anyone close enough that I can pick their pocket?

GM: There's the guy you just handed the beers to.

Players 1, 2, and 3: O.o?! Oh...shit... *laughing*

Me: *roll*uhm...+4...and...that would be burglary...uhm...that's at +3...so...+7 against his notice...right?

Player 1: Yup. *rolls* ... 0...0...-1...+1...and my notice is at +2.

Players 2 & 3: *facepalm*

Me: I'm sorry.

Player 1: T_T my custom-made weapon... 

GM: You successfully take everything that was around the guy's belt. His wrench and taser/stun-staff are now yours. Unfortunately, it seems the bouncer has noticed you.

Bouncer: Oi, kid! What're you doin' in 'ere? 'ow'd you get in?

Me: Welp...time to leave.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Long time no update...hehe...yeah, I'm not dead.

Anyway, I finally decided to join a D&D group here on Campus 'cuz the GM is a friend of mine from a few years ago and one of the players is a good friend from last semester.

Anyway, we're not playing traditional D&D. Apparently, I joined at a good time 'cuz GM was just going to transfer the game to the Fate Core system. Basically, rather than have to roll for all these stats and having to calculate and add up 4-5 bonuses and other crap whenever your character is trying to attack, Fate Core is basically focused more on the role-play aspect of the game. Less number crunching, more fun.

Rather than roll a D20 or about 5 other die everything is determined by about 4 D6s. 1-2 = -1, 3-4 = 0, 5-6 = +1. Basically, maximum you can roll is +4 and then you add your skill bonus for whatever action you are trying to do. Simple.

As for character creation, in our version your character is given 6 aspects. These are traits that determine who your character is. Phrase it in such a way that there is a benefit to that quirk as well as a down-side should GM or another player decide that trait could land you in hot water. E.g. my character is a kleptomaniac. Pro: he has a lot of miscellaneous items that could be beneficial given the situation; Con: he carries around a lot of shit and he's got sticky fingers and probably steals/lifts stuff he probably shouldn't. Like...why the hell did you decide to steal all the ash-trays from this house? "I dunno...gotta."

Anyway...as you can see in this sketch Enon's kleptomania + his thief aspect kinda started things off on the wrong foot. Rather than ret-conning him into the story I decided I wanted to play his meeting with the party members out. Somehow I ended up rolling high and the closest person to steal crap off of was a character from the bloody party I was supposed to be joining.

Oops. Welp...now Enon needs to undergo some cosmetic surgery/change his face before he can join the party...otherwise I'm gonna have to create a new character. 

Yeah...he still hasn't joined the party yet...after about 4 hours of tailing them, following the party around and showing up with a new face each time (shape-shift abilities and such).

*sigh* will Enon ever join the party or will this just be a game of cat and mouse?

Hirose Daisuke Knows What Uni is About by saphsoul
Hirose Daisuke Knows What Uni is About
Ok...so I'm not dead.

Yes...I know it's been at least a year since my last post not including Journals.

I've been drawing...but nothing I've felt like uploading...or had the time to upload...

Anyway...Hirose Daisuke is seriously too cute for words, damnit. He's going to be the death of me...well, if Math doesn't get to me first.

I doubt Hirose will ever see this butchery of him so I guess it's ok to post this. I drew from a reference that I can no longer find the site to. It's one of my favorite pictures of Hirose because he looks so cute and confused. And his face and posture right here about sums up how I feel about Uni and life in general. heheh. *sigh* what I wouldn't give to meet him even just once.

Forgive the crappy quality. I churned this out in about 20 min, and that includes pencil, coloring, and inking.

Anyway, I'm at a good place with my Uni stuff and I just really, really, really wanted to do something to show my love and support for Hirose Daisuke.

Edit: What happened to the watermark option? Did they get rid of it or am I just blind?

Update: Not dead.

*sigh* I really need to post some stuff here, don't I?

I have a lot of art and photos piled up but I haven't had the time, equipment, or motivation to post them...yet. Maybe when I get back to Uni.

I'm posting this here mostly for my IRL friends.

Anyway...inspired by a series about editors I got to thinking, "If Education doesn't work out...could I/would editing be the right job for me?" Unfortunately, I'm at the age where deciding career paths and big life decisions (career, education, job, relationships, etc.) *sigh* life is pretty stupid when I think about it.

Anyway...I still want to be a teacher...but I'm thinking that maybe editing wouldn't be a bad thing either...I wonder how to set foot into that world though. Most official positions require a BA in English...I've got at least a semester before I'm allowed to apply for the Ed program in my Uni...maybe...well, I'll try my damnedest to get into that program...but I kinda wanna try my hand at editing works of fiction.

If anyone reads this and knows how to get a foot in the door as an editor would you let me know? For now I wonder if I should leave myself open as a beta reader for people online.
Thinking about attempting to become an Utaite or a fan-cover-artist online.

I managed to make a pop filter outta stuff I had at home. I think mom had a few karaoke mics stashed away somewhere...hope they still work and can connect to my laptop. Online people say that "Blue" brand mics are the best...most say the Yeti or Snowball or whatnot are the best for novices...unfortunately, Blue brand stuff doesn't seem to be offered on this side of the country and the cheapest one is $70 online before shipping. 

Hmm...I've never tried to use audio programs...I can't even make AMVs or whatnot 'cuz I never bothered to learn how to use moviemaker etc.

Anyway, just a thought. I might attempt something and not say anything. Probably won't even have the guts to post it.

Well then, I guess this is just my journal to say I'm not dead.

I really don't care.

About the translation you saw. Keep in mind that translators, even the ones working for big companies, still make mistakes. If we want to know what was really said, we go to the original RAWs from Japan, unaltered, and learn how to read and understand it fully.

I just told off someone who made a big FAQ list. Made me really angry. Anyway, I wrote down what I wanted to say in a comment there.


Here it is above. I'm not saying I support or deny what is said, I'm just against the way this person chose to say it. I mean, people are entitled to their own opinion and getting all mad about it and being in your face about things really gives fans a bad name and makes you look really immature.

This is a work of fiction so why are people getting all mad at each other?

Hello! I love Onegai Oboete NeilxFeldt story of yours. When will you update? I've seen it before in fanfiction.net I think. I just want to know what happens to them... because I ship them so hard. >u<

Thank you.

I've been meaning to work on stuff like that, but I've been very busy. Apparently, life and creativity hate each other and are always competing to see which one gets my attention.

I don't like un-inspired stories, so whenever I get the urge/inspiration to write again, I'll post more.

Thanks for the comment and I'm sorry for not giving you a proper answer. I don't know when the next chapter will be out.
