Having posted my FE Contest entry, I'm now stuck in one of stages I'm usually in after writing something...

Avi's 3 stages of post-writing )

So I'm currently at Stage 2, self-loathing. XP Oddly enough, I still feel like writing at the moment, but nothing Fire Emblem-related (except maybe the Mary Sue challenge, and that isn't due for a while).

Story ideas: Dragon Age, Pokemon, Total Drama )

On the subject of Canadian fandoms, I saw Scott Pilgrim vs. The World a couple of weeks ago. A movie filmed in Toronto that's also set in Toronto? Yeah baby! (I didn't even realize that the movie was based on a Canadian comic, until later... So out of touch with my home country since I moved to the US, sigh.)

Very mild spoilers for Scott Pilgrim )

So yeah, I would recommend Scott Pilgrim to any video gamer, but you would have to keep in mind that the movie is indeed an odd mix of half indy-teen-romantic-comedy, and half video game hijinx. Still enjoyable, for what it's worth. ;)

I've just realized that Zevran from Dragon Age reminds me of Sain... Times ten. And with absolutely no shame. (Or discrimination, for that matter, since he'll bonk anyone, if given any sort of encouragement. XD)

I just spent part of the evening unlocking some of the support conversations between Zevran and the other characters... Namely, between him and Wynne, who is the elder healer, and mother-figure of the party.

In case you haven't guessed, yes, he does hit on her, in his own inimitable fashion. (As odd as it sounds, I was still howling with laughter, listening to this. And it also makes fun of how characters in video games usually have the same body type, regardless of age. ;P) It would also explain why Wynne was warning my character away from romancing Zevran...

Hmm, if Zevran is Sain, does that mean Alistair would be Kent, then? (Though Kent would never crack as much wise as Alistair does, Alistair does have the same sense of honour...)

But now that I think about it, Zevran reminds me more of Legault, overall... They're both formerly of a criminal organization, both have similar professions (thief/assassin), have similar... tastes, and regret killing a colleague (both female). Hmmm...

September already? And it got so cold right away, too... (Not that I'm complaining; it's been a hot summer, and I hate heat.)

Anyways... Sorry I haven't been around; been playing a lot of video games lately: Lego Harry Potter (have a weakness for Lego games), Rock Band 2 (again)... But mostly I've been playing Dragon Age for the past month. (I haven't played a Bioware game in years, and since I've stopped playing WoW, I've needed a fantasy RPG fix of some sort. ;P)

tl;dr on Dragon Age - Romances & names )

In other news, I've decided to write something serious for the [livejournal.com profile] fe_contest challenge this month. ;P (Me, serious? With that prompt? Yep.) I was hoping to write something other than FE7, but I've already typed up the outline, so we'll see how well that goes...
