Space Bound,

This post will have nothing to do with space, I'm just listening to Eminems' Spacebound, despite not really being in my main genre of music I do like some of his music, more of this recent album more than the rest, I think he has grown up from Slim Shady. I like this song becuase it reminds me of my character Valvossa, and some of the things she has has to deal with since her death and ressurection, and I think it would be something that she thinks about often.

I think this weekend shall be a good one, I shall be over my cold (huzzah!), though right now my lungs want ot be on the outside of my body and I don't want that, they would be inside out and it would make life difficult. Tomorrow shall be a day of cleaning ang general housework, I didn't get to to this today as I got  called by my recruitment agency at nine o'clock this morning wanting me to go to the Crown in Whitebrook to do pot washing at 10...yay. So I did and I decided that when I got home at 3 this afternoon that I would just sit and relax and that that housework shall wait for tomorrow, I just hope that it is still sunny tomorrow as I ahve a load of washing to do and I would just hate to hang it indoors.  Then there is of course DnD, where I believe we left off in the middle of this city that hates angels and he have two angels with also doesn't help that our warlock can make you sick whilst just looking at him. So that should be all fun and games.

Saturday on the other hand is completely unknown to me as far as plans go. I might go in to Gloucester or Bristol and take my camera back again, as when I got it back the other day it still will not charge properly and it still makes this illusive clicking noise. And I  can't get my money back anymore :( sucks. So I will just have to ask them what they did exactly for the month that they had it. Also if  my cheque and wages have come through then I will be getting a new phone, amoung other things but phone is definetly at the top of the list. It won't be anything super shiny and fantastic, I just want it to text, call, and maybe have signal in the house and maybe just maybe have the net...that I will only just for emergencies....

As for Sunday, that will be the day of LRP at Bristol. I believe that my friend Cookie is running, so that should be interesting to play as I have found out some interesting stuff and it is a shame that the Dragon kin are away for the winter they would be interested in what we found too. It would be nice if one of my friends from London would come along but I doubt that will happen.

Oh well I just wish I had more froth really, one mage has my string doll and another has my essence of fire elemental and I doubt I will see either soon (the items not the enchanters). Though I have a feeling I am going to need the fire candle soon as it is part f on going plot. My string doll is sitting around waiting around for something to happen. Oh I hope it doesn't eat Sol...I would say I like him but I made that mistake last time *narrows eyes*  :P

The internet is being slow and it keeps dropping out on me. Pah! to Forest internets...PAH!

Also Death to Tholon anyone?

Apocalypse please.

Well humans and non humans, as last blog was a little jabbery (yeah it's a word) on the whole Fade/Fae thing, which I basically did just for a friend to explain the concept as they had never played Dragon age. I don't even know if they read it as they still had no clue so they might have bought it. I'm not good at explaining things I babble on about a five minute thing for ages. I'm like a slightly more human, english and less magic Merril.

So yeah this past couple weeks have been long in so many ways. Last week myself and john were employed by our temp agency (along with a million people) making these Xmas decorations for shop displays in Next. So that meant I was on my feet for 46 hours, which my body did not like at all and it has decided to punish me by giving me a cold. It was quite funny last week when trying to read things and having a convosation (IM'ing not the talking kind) because I would try and read something and my eyes would not focus they would drift away from the sentence I was reading so that made life hard and when I was talking to people online I had to check that what I was wrote was A)Spelt correctly B) Made sense and C) Was in English, and also I would forget what I had just said so I would have to re read it again and again, also making sure what I was saying wasn't rude or anything.

I've been having alot of LRP dreams lately, some of them are vague and some are really good, I think my last one was at BC and I was trying to convince one of my friends to come out adventure with me and I believe one of my excuses was that they could help me hobble around between fights as I had just lost my leg. I don't  know if I was successful or not, but dreams are like that, they either make you forget the good bits really easily or they linger with you and I get the latter alot. I also like/don't like the dreams where you can still feel a persons touch.

So I am once again in the catagory of "unemployed" I have been in this catagory for one day and J's parents are worried that we have no dreams and/or wishes for the future. I mean yes we do but at the moment there are no jobs that we are "qualified" to do in the forest and surrounding area, I can't really get anywhere unless john takes me or I take a bus, and the bus is a little hit and miss really, esp if I were to work in the early morning or late evening, becuase there are none. Also when buying/renting a house, it is bloody expensive to do, I mean its not jjust the mortage or the rent its all the bills and food as well, which is depressing to think about. For me, to get a basic job in a town or even a city (where there may be more jobs) I would have to live closer to said thing which I don't, my closest town consists of, supermarkets, charity shops, salons, pubs, hardware stores, then misc stores. All of which are not looking for people. Problem. I think ideally I would want to live in/near a major city, like Bristol, Gloucester or even London, but my lovely J is "allergic" to cities, he doesn't like them, its a bit of a hassle to even go to one for a day, let alone live in one. I mean I like the country and all but there is nothing here for the lost generation that have to rely on partners and buses. I just want to be independent, have my own space, my own money.

Facespace has once again had a facelift, the only bits that still bug me is the ticker tape updates that are in the top right hand corner, it is not  needed. And then they have changed the chat thing and now people who are either not online or have left a while ago appear on the lefthand side. I mean its there for people to talk to  people who are online, not people who ahve just left. Its like FB is laughing at me, then again..doesn't the whole world?

Hopefully, within the next few day I will be able to spend a bit of the tax refund I got on a mobile phone, but I bet due the "perks" of living in the forest I will never have signal, until I am in an area of a large populace. And then when I get paid for last week I am tempted to have a bit of a shop, it will only be to Gloucester, Bristol would be too far, too expensive and John would hate it even more because its a lot of walking.

Oh look its past 11, I should probably turn the laptop off, or J's mother will hover. I'm not even tired and I don't need more sleep just because I am ill. As Saturday proved being around friends made me feel a little better.

Turning the fade in to fae.

Ok so I was reading a Dragon Age 2 fanfic (Not that kind)  and one of the stories was of Hawke and Anders getting pulled i n to the fade by Justice (Spirit of Vengence) and as Hawke is wondering around she finds different peices of Anders, who is trying to seperate himself from Justice and get back to his normal templar hating self.

So Hawke finds the different versions of Anders. Regret, Instability, Indecision, Lonliness and Distrust. And if you know DA2 well you will know what these all are and why did what she did to help Anders in this.
Regret - Anders regrets everything, probably taking about what happened with Justice and the chantry (boom). So Hawke holds and comforts him and he dissapears.
Instability- He regrets nothing. She accepts him despite his flaws.
Indecision - He doesn't know what to do, he isn't sure of who he is anymore. Hawke tells him that he is to find his path and stick to it.
Lonliness- Anders is alone and feels he doesn't need anyones help and he can do it all on his own. Hawke asures him he doesn't have to be alone in this, that she is his friend and will be there always.
Distrust - Anders doesn't trust anyone anymore, he thinks she will turn him in to the Templars. Hawkes tells him she can trust him no matter what even when she fled Kirkwall.

After Anders has been put back together she finds Anders and he had to do the same with pieces of her. They finally destroy Justice, as there is no real justice in the world and they all hve a big fight and Justice goes boom.

I think this would make a good Fae encounter/mission. The Fade is somewhere where you cannot trust anything that can be said, you do not know what it real, illusion or if it is a demon showing you lost and forgotten or unknown memories. Which I  guess you can link to fae as its a freaky realm where things are twisted and backwards and fae cant be trusted as far as you can throw then.

So my ideas would be that someone who has lost thier soul in fae or has just lost themselves in fae and needs to be put back together. Having different aspects of themselves scattered around fae (whilst the real them is in the clutches of some evil fairy) and when one piece is "fixed" it would point to the next piece, I guess it would have to be used with a locate or something.

But yeah that was my little spur of creativity that I have basically stolen from someone but hey, their rcreativity is stolen from the game.

If you don't know Dragon Age here are the wiki pages for Anders and Hawke. So you can get the jist of them:
