I’m terrible at telling students that their work is unsatisfactory, and I’m not super strict about page requirements, but ... no, this four-page mini-project cannot be done in the space of one page. :|

Occasionally I look at ad astra.

And then hide my head under a pillow, obviously.

“People could get hurt,” I added.

“These are no innocents, Advocate,” said Ihan. “They’re pirates, and a cutthroat bunch at that—bear that in mind.”

Right, pirates. Thieves and murderers and gods knew what else; it still wasn’t the plan I’d have chosen, had another presented itself, but … well, they’d done worse themselves. I’d done worse, arguably, with all the bandits I’d killed—I regretted nothing, but risking murderers’ lives could be no worse than killing them myself, surely.

Wow, someone managed to turn my post about Paige Tico into Kylo wank in the space of two responses.

“It’s your decision, my friend. I know you’ll make the right choice.”

I appreciated the faith, but I didn’t trust myself nearly as much. I’d have liked at least some input from the queen’s representative.

But no—Logan had come to observe, and likely to prevent any fights from breaking out—and perhaps because he was my closest ally and friend. I was the queen’s representative.

“How is it that a civilian like you sees more combat than any ten soldiers I know? You’re making us look bad, my lady.”

I laughed. “That’s simply not possible—you Seraph are the real heroes.”

Most of them, anyway.

For all my lifelong pride, the Althea of a year ago could never have imagined this—me, a hero of Kryta recognized on sight, walking into the throne room in answer to a personal summons from the queen. Gods, where would I be in another year?

What would I be?

The GW2 fic now has over 45k words and ... three whole bookmarks! The third is tagged "I have no idea what's going on but I like it" (:D), and there are 31 whole kudos after being stuck at 27 for years. And I actually got TWO comments on a chapter, one from a person I don't know who's anticipating the inevitable future developments that are about 75% of the reason I wrote the fic at all. 

It could seem pretty infinitesimal, but I am 100% aware that almost no one cares about the fic, so it's always surprising and awesome when it turns out someone does.

:D :D :D

I’m playing baby’s first tabletop D&D game (not technically the first, but the first I’ve lasted more than two sessions for) and at level 3, my lawful good cleric got turned into a werewolf.

At first I was just >_<, but now I'm like... storytelling opportunity!!!

And then I had a really great night on Saturday. I mean, in part because I had plenty to do, and in part because there was a new character (a paladin, which made my lawful good cleric’s pupils turn to hearts), but also because I, a fourth-level healer, managed to deliver the killing blow to a fire elemental by attacking it for twenty points of damage.

Inflict Wounds, baby. :D

“Anakin is not Leia’s real father” is really quite different from “Padmé is not Leia’s real mother.”

“I can’t say you look well, but you do look alive!”

I smacked the side of Faren’s head.

“What?” he said. “Alive is the thing, isn’t it?” He turned to my sister. “I’m very glad you’re not dead, Deborah.”

“Minister Arton’s not guilty; someone was framing him to take the fall if this treason was ever discovered.”

Logan nodded thoughtfully.

“It’s got to be someone else in the Ministry—someone with money, power, and ambition.”

“That doesn’t exactly narrow it down,” he said.
