Our good friends over at Artix Entertainment once made an announcement that I believe is very expressive of the way I feel right now.  Here, lemme copypasta that for you.

Cut because I realize that parodies of well-known Bible passages are not always looked kindly upon. )

I am, of course, not in the beta testing stage of creating a new online RPG, but this is pretty much how I feel.  In my infinite wisdom I have managed to miss the birthdays of literally every single friend I have this year-- including my offline friends-- and resolved, as I have before, not to post until I had EVERY SINGLE BIRTHDAY PRESENT I'd planned done.


You know what, screw this, I'mma just whip up like a million oneshots for y'all.  ACTUAL ONESHOTS.  NOT THESE LAME BLURBS I'VE BEEN DOING.  Don't bother wishing me luck, just boot me in the pants whenever you see me online and say GET TO WORK, MISSY.

Yes, the guys at AE did actually post that.  Here, look for yourself.

...Um.  So, uh, thanks everyone! 8D In lieu of presents for you guys, I suppose I must list my own presents.  SO.  Have some photos:

Read more... )

I'd forgotten that the IRL Artix is a black belt. LOLOLOL.

In other news, Student/Faculty basketball game yesterday. ...Yes, we still have those. XD It wasn't as rough as it was rumored to be last year (I didn't go, but someone told me it was more like football than basketball), but still fun.  I'd spent the entire day feeling a little down for various reasons, but after that it was all peachy and awesome. ^^

In more other news, my sister got The Batman vs. Dracula from the library yesterday.  LOL.  I love that movie, as well as the rest of the latest Batman show, and was very much surprised to hear that the fandom apparently doesn't like it very much.  Indeed, there were a lot of cheesy moments.

Case in point. )

But there were also a lot of awesome moments!

Tons of images, a lot of them scary. )
northeasternwind: (LMAO)
April Fools.

Spring Break starts today!  But I bet my productivity will go down again; I only ever seem to write in school T___T Kinda proud of myself, though.  I actually got two or three oneshots up in a period of... two, three weeks?  And they're not as criminally short as they used to be.  (Figures that the longest one would be for Tales of Symphonia, though. LOL.)

So I'm going to poke around on the internet and see if I can find some more stuff about how the army runs things, so I don't make silly mistakes again, and work on my 30_quills claim (the moment I get inspiration, other inspiration comes and distracts me...) and record a friend of mine falling off his skateboard skateboarding.  I sure hope nothing pops up again, I haven't seen him in ages.  Man, I miss my middle school friends-- the ones that don't make up one fourth of our freshmen class, at least.

And now I talk about April Fool's Day stuff no one cares about! )

Dragonfable-- and the rest of AE-- is going through their usual holiday rituals... except "usual" in AE games can often be replaced by "Train Wreck" with little to no change.

Why yes, that is me on top of a dragon fighting a giant turkey/duck/chicken hybrid inside an absurdly large gingerbread house. )

More soon. Having too much fun.
northeasternwind: (Shanoa)
Woke up early, can't go to Homecoming Parade, have little to do.  Will be randomly posting things, most likely.  I apologize in advance for spamming up all your Flists.

Is it obvious that I love Ancient Egypt? XD  That's actually a wallpaper made from the background image of one of the zones from a game called Dragonfable.  Wuv Dragonfable ^^

Harry: Uh, I was just wondering--
Young Muggle Woman: I get off work at eleven. *winks* *leaves*
Harry: ...
Harry: *pulls out box of Tic Tacs*

Lavender: ;__; Waaah!  *runs away*
Harry, Snape, McGonagall and Dumbledore have not moved since the beginning of the scene.
Dumbledore: ...Ah, to be young again and feel the sting of love.

Aragog: *dead*
Slughorn: Did he, ah...  Have any family?
Harry: Oh yeah.

XD  Lots of randomly funny things.  And awesome fire magic.  Underwater.  Yeah.  Just go watch it, the laughs are worth it.  "She has nice skin" indeed.

Speaking of laughs, I was once again reminded of something I used to think was absolutely awesome; this flash game and its background music.  The game is by Artix Entertainment, and the song is a single by Voltaire.

Aptly called, "When You're Evil."  A youtube search reveals that this is a popular song to make music videos to.  Ah, this is why I LOVE Artix Entertainment!

SO.  Haru-Sari page came out Monday as usual, and I was wrong.  It wasn't Cygnet who blew up our resident pregnant woman/young child duo.  It was Phoenix.

"You looked... different.  You sounded different.  I'll kill as many people as you want... for you.  Please, just don't do it yourself.  I'm scared it might... turn you into a different person."

Argh, little kid logic...  This is why we never give kids psychic powers.  And today's page has little Omi asking why Emily and Francis are "all red" and "not talking or moving" ;__;

A classmate did.  By accident.  I was sitting nearby and heard the click and my classmates going "Crap."  I myself could not do much to help (I'm not strong enough to pull the door hard enough to disable the lock), but we got her out before the substitute teacher could take notice.  Since it turned out all right, it's an amusing story to tell, but... the guy who locked her in there said he would have just left her if class ended and come back to try later.  >_> Those cupboards are so old the keys to lock and unlock them don't even exist anymore.. Locked-Friend-In-Cupboard was the one who disabled the lock and got her out, but I doubt those cupboards will have people climbing into them anytime soon.  I don't think she minds, as we were all laughing about it by last period, but still.  No playing in the science cupboards!

In other rambling, Artix Entertainment is the coolest game company ever.  When I had to miss my sister's birthday party for a competition, I went on their forums on her actual birthday (Friday the 13th >_>), explained my plight and asked users to help me make up for it by wishing my sister a Happy Unlucky Golden Birthday.

I got a bunch of well-wishes from the users, a couple editted images saying Happy Birthday, and a pm from Alac himself:

Happy Unlucky Golden Birthday, Helsayx!

The DF team would like to wish you the happiest of unlucky birthdays! (Yes, such a thing IS possible. Somehow. We think!)
We hope you have a wonderful, very VERY lucky day today, and that the party you all had last weekend was phenomenal.

Happy Hero's Heart Day versus Friday the 13th!

Battle On!
Cysero, geopetal, Rolith, Alac, and the DF team 

Helsayx is my sister's screenname just about everywhere.  And, er, Hero's Heart Day is the in-game equivalent of Valentine's Day.

Artix Entertainment = Awesome.

And I told my friends about my written-but-not-publicized story about how we all died on the way to DC and somehow end up in Shibuya fighting the giant frogs of doom.  I'd told them before, but they paid more attention now for some reason, and started spontaneously remembering how they all suggested they die XD  Because you see, I skipped the death scene part because I had no ideas at the time, so when I asked how I should make everyone die my friends generously started providing inspiration XD

Best Friend (who actually WAS on the trip to DC when we were talking about this) died on the toilet somehow o_0
Locked-In-Cupboard drowned or something...
Studdy Buddy (I'll think of a better name later) was shot, I think...
And the rest of us just got in a crash on the way there, apparently.

I was supposed to go to DC as well, but chose to be lazy at a most inconvenient time, so my mother took me off.  Pretty soon, the day of their departure came.  My mom goes to work while I'm at school, and the bus was scheduled to leave for DC left an hour after I got home.  I live not fifty feet from the front of the school where the bus was to depart, so I sat in the kitchen eating cheesecake while watching them.  That was a little tough, as I'd been looking forward to it.  I started randomly thinking about how since only my grandmother and sister were home, and both asleep, I could probably just pack up on a whim and come with them if they didn't know I'd gotten a refund, as they trust me that much.  I wouldn't though, as that would be robbing them all of $800 and my parents would be most angry with me upon my return XD

BAM.  Plunny.

There will be misbehaving SOLDIERs.

Why does everything I say always, always lead back to videogames, somehow?
