Afternoon to y'all.

Spent the morning working on the house - living in a house my parents are renovating, and they removed the chimney, so I'm stacking bricks. Good workout, actually; I lost an inch doing it. 57'' is a horrible waistline size, but it beats the hell out of 58'': 56 and no or bust next week, here's hoping.

Applying for some jobs! Going to the farmer's market with a stack of resumes this weekend, hoping to snag a job as a cook for a prepackaged food company or as a farmhand. Wish me luck, guys.

Last weekend, spent some time with [livejournal.com profile] universal_queen, Feyna, Henry and Ben - Bliss Stage game, plus shit-shooting and dinner. Made spaghetti with pesto cream sauce - always a winner - and fried some fish, which... didn't work as well. Next time, Elli, deep fry: don't half-ass it.

And speaking of Bliss Stage - those just tuning in, I've been tapped for a fan-project, a Visual Novel for PC's (and Macs, come to that). I mentioned that I might want to post some Interludes from same, and...

Well, I still do, but I'd like to structure it as if it were a rough play-through of the game. Not at this site: I'd like it to be a little more... uh... secure. But at another site.

If you'd be interested in being part of this... shall we call it a Let's Write? Then post here, and I'll invite you to the site.

"Hi everyone.

From now until Sunday midnight, I’ll donate all profits from PDF sales on my website (which is basically the amount you paid) to Haitian earthquake recovery organizations. Additionally, I will donate $5 from each copy of Drifter’s Escape. So if you’ve been thinking about buying Polaris or Bliss Stage, now’s a great time. For this to work, you have to buy directly from my website not from IPR.

If you have already donated $10 or more, send me a receipt and I’ll send you a free PDF.

I’d also take suggestions for organizations to donate to."

If any of you have been meaning to pick up Bliss Stage, Polaris, or Drifters Escape, now's the time.

XXXXtreme Street Luge (The Game That's Like Vin Deisel) is fine too.

Life happens.

I'm re-enrolling in classes, taking out a student loan - this is pretty much the best way to ensure that I have money and regular computer access at this point, and in the future. That combined with continuing to look for clerical and data entry work.

Taking creative writing classes on the grounds that it will force me to do creative writing, at least 1/3 of which will not be Bliss Stage related.

Speaking of which, the VN chugs along. I am hoping we can get something out in time for Anime Conji in April (http://www.animeconji.org/), because I'm holding some games there (http://www.animeconji.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=37). Including but not limited to the infamous Katawa Stage; I'm rewriting it to be less LULZ DATING SIM INJOKES (specifically, I'm making Hisao a Rising Hero with an actual codified stat block, rather than the stupid trick where he's a Devoted Lover with a 5/3 to be assigned); AstraKiseki rightly pointed out that "no one cares."

On a related note, I really need to get some Bliss Stage cosplay going for that. Planning on going as VN!Josh Preston, Kenji, and/or (Gurren Lagaan's) Viral, Marketing. Should be fun.

I can also probably hold Bliss Stage games online for people; in fact I intend to.

Mentlegen. You can haz mind virus.

Here's how it works.

Stat your current Bliss, Trauma, and relationships to four people on your friends-list in terms of Intimacy, Trust and Stress, in Bliss Stage game terms.

Then ask those people to do the same.

Note - I will not be held responsible for the fallout when you reveal an Intimacy 5 ('we had sex to get closer') relationship to someone who doesn't want that to be public knowledge. Pick who you're statting accordingly.

Bliss: 45
Trauma: 1

Alextfish: 3/3. (Ask me about the great ChiarkPerson Bliss Stage Flame War sometime! TL;DR he defended my position and helped me calm down.)

BenLehman: 2/5. (As near as I can tell. He made me think a game called Hot Guys Making Out would be worth playing. Protip: It is.)

BlackBlueSock: 3/2. (That one Trust Break was a bitch, but our apologies was made. Yay game-naive Bliss Stage players who pwn their first game.)

Tigerbunny: 3/3-2. (Passionate arguments about the characterization of VN characters. Still working on finding that copy of Ze Contract. Might have been buried in the Great Room Clean-Up. Sorry...)

Or anyone else who would like to be in two open slots?

They just met another Resistance unexpectedly.

Not children, mind. Another Resistance.

There's an NPC pilot called Asha Remar, controlled by me. Her battles are not your Resistance's battles, so the fact that she is a pilot does not make her a Pilot.

(She is ENTIRELY a riff off of the game Iji, by the way. Her chassis is her Anchor and brother Daniel Remar, and is a nanomolecular cybernetic frame. Her other manifestations are weapons in the reconfigurable man-portable nanogun she affectionately refers to as 'Cannon.')

All I ask is that the APPEARANCE of your character and thier ANIMa is a riff off of a video game, either from the 8 bit, 16 bit, or Indie Retro eras.

Next week... well, have this excerpt.

EnglishSpeaking! Shampoo from Ranma 1/2, honestly.

She's portrayed as energetic, flirtatious, and posessing of the weird mix of clingy and poly that I can deal with.

Also, as being rather sensual and catlike, in a good way. Not just in terms of, well, I'd tell you to get your minds out the the gutter IF I weren't a hypocrite; but also she's PORTRAYED as foodie with a fondness for touching, being touched, perfume and the like.

Also...

Tomorrow on www.loveismyweapon.com is Random Fandom Wednesday.

Be very afraid, Bliss Stage fans.

I go on something resembling a Date today. Wish me luck.

And good afternoon.

Here are the rest of my drabbles about the K*S girls, under the cuts.

Misha - Gotcha!

*Hiichan is extremely interesting,* Shiichan tells me )

Lilly - High Tea

I add sugar to my tea with a tap of metal on china. )

Hanako - Odd Victories

He's looking at my face, but not staring at my burn. That helps. )

Rin - Sunny, With A Chance Of Rain

My thoughts have always been like those big fluffy clouds that turn dark right before it rains. )

Emi - Slow and Steady

Don't yell at him, Emi. It's probably his heart. )

Also, if anyone would be interested in pre-reading some Lilly pr0n ER I MEAN PRACTICE WRITING FOR SENSES THAT ARE NOT SIGHT, CLEARLY then drop me a comment or PM me.

On the life note, I very much enjoyed my Labor Day; I had the first beer of my life that I truly enjoyed without reservations (apparently, I find ale too bitter, but find milder lagers very good), and shit was shot with anarch_cassius, Universal_Queen, Jasper, Kat and Jacob. Between us, we know enough art, music, writing, design and programming to be selling ashcan $9.00 CD-ROM games a con or two from now, and actual long-term game design projects in a coupla years.

I brought up Transformation Sequence, and they'd be happy to do the art and music for it, so I can FINALLY release the goddamn thing. I'll scan some shitty programmer art for it and put in some placeholder animu BGM, and give anarch_cassius the game. Right after I rename A CERTIAN HAWT REDHEAD so that she no longer has the name of a friend who has every right to GUT me for pulling that crap, and is instead now known as Cass. (To be fair, everyone in that game is a college friend of mine, boiled down to identifiable VN tropes, but naming A CERTIAN HAWT REDHEAD after her was fukkin' dumb, especially just coming out of my awkward stalky creep phase.)

I also brought up Bliss Stage: First Act (a Visual Novel programmed in Ren'Py), which they'd like to work on. Meaning that there are enough programmers that it'll take months, not millenia, to program all the fiddly bits and endings ranging from Josh ventilating Commander James Preston for gross incompetent, to a To Be Continued in Children of Children, to the bittersweet Bliss of Anna Lin, to murder by Keenan to actually having hawt sexxors with Sara and surviving to... I could go on, there are 20+ of the bloody endings, and that's not counting "Messy Death In Combat."

Long term, woo fantasy Metroidvania.

No class today; teacher's out sick. So I'm just going to be mellow in the computer lab. My reading is done, my homework does not exist, and life is good.

How are you?

Note. My comments are silly.

I'm practicing sprite-work with Pixen. Now that I've figured out how to actually make them big enough to be useful, here they are. I would much appreciate your harshest critique.

Sprites, Sprites, and more sprites! )

Ewen Cluney apparently read the petition I started on RPG.net (@ http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?t=470349), and this is his response:

"Wow.

Um.

So, right now I'm immersed in working on Slime Story and another SEEKRIT PROJECT that I'm immensely excited about but can't talk about AT ALL.

I will think about sitting down to fix up Hikikomori (which is, after all, a 24-hour RPG and was never playtested), since people seem to actually like it. I don't know when I'll get around to it, but having written and then largely forgotten about it in 2006, I'm going to have to thoroughly re-read it and play it several times over, something my brain isn't really up to right now. In the meantime, please feel free to post or PM any specific observations/suggestions you have about the game.

Regardless, thank you all for your support. :) "

Awesomecakes.

If you have a vested interest in this game, then do post your playtest reports.

Fantastic!

Taking advanced cooking classes at Laney at the moment, and looking for a new job.

I very badly want to run Bliss Stage for friends of mine, including my LJ friends - what are good days and times to do so? Or for general mucking about. I want to see Waltz With Bashir, among other things, and would rather do so with friends.

Oh, and shameless plug moment: Dad, in case you didn't know, works for Greater Good magazine - a magazine about the psychology and neurology of ethical behavior. Reporting on groundbreaking reasearch on why people are good, essentially - our emotional wiring, trust, and so on. You should check it out.

Based on two premises.

1) What if you could build a hyperdrive-equipped starship in your backyard for around the cost of a car? Assuming it was fusion-powered, you could even fuel it with water (split the hydrogen from the oxygen, which you route to life-support)...

2) At this point, most of the funding for NASA and SETI and such come from science fiction fans. Most of which would give thier left testicles/ovaries to meet a sapient alien and/or colonize another planet.

...so what if the first space colonists turned out to be sci-fi and anime fans?

Cut for extreme silly )

I have no idea where to take this, beyond the fact that if it's going to be such an obvious homage to Bab 5, that there should be Expys of the Shadows and Vorlons. Seeing as this is probably going to be a story about stories at this rate...

I have a vision of the Shadow Expy cosplaying as Haruhi Suzumia, and her species Arc Word question being "What makes it cool?". Her "Vorlon" counterpart would ask "What does it mean?" instead.

Huh.

Wonderful Bliss Stage game today, at www.toothycat.net/wiki/wiki.pl?BlissStage. We had to use the ToothyChat main channel, which I sincerely hope we WON'T have to do again - I just hope I can get the channel working on a Job Corps computer. Experimenting.

If you care about Bliss Stage, click the link. Otherwise, don't blame me. )

Hoping I'll get to talk with Acchan a little more today, too.

School again tomorrow. Sandwich portion of the curriculum, I think.

Class was fun today - we're starting a courseload on meat fabrication, prep and cookery. We made a cure for a pork loin, which is brining overnight as we speak.

Yesterday, took a personal day so I could do my catering gig @ a party in San Jose's museum of art. Mostly we assembled appetizers. ...I had to dot a coin-sized corn pudding with chili cream sauce and a little "cilantro pearl," an impractical beautiful ball of cilantro in a small sphere held together with savory jelly.

(Should Be A Movie) trailer script for Kare Kano below the cut.

THIS MOVIE IS RATED PG-13 FOR ROMANCE, SOME SEXUAL REFERENCES AND COMIC MISCHIEF

She had a 'perfect' life... until he came along and taught her that perfection wasn't everything. )

This one is made all the sweeter with the existences of a secret very overt admirer at my school. Hee.

Try to guess next week's with only this tagline:

"Only he has the guts to woo beautiful monsters and endure terrible princesses."
