I've been in a pretty good mood recently-- I mean, I've descended into WEH at night more often since I RAN OUT OF MEDS AND DIDN'T GET A NEW PRESCRIPTION LIKE A MONTH AGO (I found my old one like three days ago though so that's good) but my motivation doesn't seem to have suffered. das is good.

Probably because I'm taking two of my electives this time around, class is a little more relaxed. Why can't it always be this way. Wah.

So what have I been into lately? Well, thanks to Tumblr and VYC I have fallen out of the Hobbit tree and hit every branch on the way down. Thanks, Vyc. I hadn't seen the second and third Hobbit movies (and only saw the first because my sister dragged me to a theater) but I caved and watched them and now the way is shut. Everyone Lives AUs, yaaaas. ALSO I WANT THORIN AND DIS TO SEE THEIR FATHER AGAIN...

As usual I did roughly 0% of shipping while watching the actual movies, but the fandom is just so enthusiastic and nice about it that it's hard not to get dragged along and change XD I went into it after reading Vyc's Barduil fic and also a Bilbo/Thorin Cinderella AU (you'd be surprised what Tumblr can make work XD) so that was pretty set in stone, but... Thorin and Bilbo's relationship. Thorin says that he gave Bilbo the mithril shirt as a token of their friendship, and when he says the word 'friendship' THE OTHERS LAUGH

Kili and Tauriel is canon, so my feelings on that don't much matter, LOLOLOL. They make a good couple, though, and Kili is adorable. Precious baby. Thranduil can complain all he likes because he's a jerk. But a handsome Sad Dad one and y'all know I love me some Sad Dad

Predictably I have been morphing Middle Earth to fit several Dwarf Fortress things, which I have detailed here and oh no, it's bad. Also I do not condone the butchering of actual, existing kittens, I love kittens, but they are significantly less cute when they consist of only the letter 'c' and the death of my FPS.

I built a computer! I bought the parts and put them together myself. Here's the list:

CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: ASRock H97M Anniversary Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Memory: Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon R9 280 3GB DUAL-X Video Card
Case: BitFenix Shinobi Window ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: SeaSonic 450W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

I sort of overestimated the space I'd have on a Micro ATX motherboard, but everything did fit! I just... don't know how I'm going to get the graphics card out again. It's huge. It's the biggest thing in there. But it runs! I just need to put Windows 8.1 on it somehow, now. I have Ubuntu because it's free, but most things don't run so great because they weren't designed with Ubuntu in mind, and I can't be bothered to look up fixes all the time, hahaha. But yeeeees.

I am super excited for the trials and goodbyes in Luceti! Everyone has to go to the Core Spirit and show it that they've grown and changed during their time in Luceti and then they can go home without fear of being dragged back-- or they can stay, but Dhaos will be going home because he wants to face the consequences of his actions. Grune will be regaining her memory, so she'll be helping him out and finally, finally learning about all that Demon King stuff he's been hiding from everyone. It'll be amazing. But poor Sophie will be separated from her mother and all her friends forever as things stand now, since she was born in Luceti and wants to leave with Fenimore ;~~; POOR BABY, LET EVERYONE HOLD YOU

Hm, what else? Ashley is home! She is on Spring Break! And also Flight Rising is having the Wind Festival, and I am of the Wind Flight, and EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL I NEED TEN OF ALL OF IT
