[Laszlo's Scrapbook] If you only knew.

So cool, I totally buckled and started one of these. ^_^

I'm super terribad at keeping up blog thingies, and I never intended to start one! I rarely have much to say about anything, and I don't really broadcast my opinions very often. Everyone's got opinions. Mine are nothing special. :3 If you only knew how boring I really am. ;)

However! Kaiielle was super awesome and made this really cool chart thing for NaNoWriMo! So, I decided I would open a scrapbook just to measure my progress. I'll be taking part with my new buddy Laszlo, who I still don't completely understand. Between you and me, I think he's secretly super angtsy. /shakes head

Well anyway, because Kaiielle put so much effort into making the list, I'll even be keeping the ungodly hot pink color, as a tribute to the time she spent making it. ^_^ And thanks to whoever added the other columns!

[Removed as it is no longer relevant and my wordkeeping was faulty! xD]

Before I forget.


Got threads to reply toooooo. I was just so not in my head today though. D:

Listed roughly by priority but I may not post in order. I believe in both fairness and practicality, but sometimes those two things do not match up.

Thick-Skinned Posted!
Stuck on this thread. Can't figure out how to continue. Completely stuck. It'll require some good thought before I post here again. It's been like a week or two now. D: I'm such an awful person.

Alter My Ego Posted!
Need to put some thought into what Laszlo is doing, what he'll see, how he'll react, and what to do about Victor. Maybe I'll push him out the window. x)

Contracted Interests Posted!
I know what Laszlo's going to do. I just need to figure out a cool way to phrase it. I WRITE GOOD.

Just Listen Posted!
I haven't thought too deeply on Laszlo's reaction yet. He's still scared but by now he's also intrigued. I think the danger of not knowing what fate the future holds for him is kind of exciting. But mostly it's nerve wracking and driving him insane.

Wanted Posted. -_-
I've got a rough idea of what Laszlo will do next. He's so not in character in this dream, but I love it! In his dreams, he's not afraid to challenge the world. He deserves things as much as the next person! Also he's so very lonely. :(

I think that's it! More replies owed than I thought, now that I look at it. NaNo, here I come.

Caoin. Is. Awesome.

She did these for me and I didn't even ask. Well, I did ask a long time ago, but I never filled out an app and I thought she forgot. But no, she is great, and I am super grateful. <3

Thanks Jayne, you're amazing. ^_^

Ohmygoodness. You actually made a scrapbook? WHERE WAS I?!

WEEEEEEE!

Good luck on NaNo, Laszlo!!! I hope you succeed! I'd so ask to write with you for it, but I plan to do it with Goshawk. ;D I'll for sure want to give you some form of assistance in Alvadas though, my fellow Alvadas Ethaefal.

NOW STOP MOVING AND REST.
We're part of a story, part of a tale
We're all on this journey
No one is to stay
Where ever it's going
What is the way?


OOCIt is now December, officially Winter in the Mizaharian calender. Siofra is no longer available to thread with for anyone after the end of Fall.

http://www.saidsimple.com/content/When-to-Make-a-New-Paragraph

...your short stories are going to have dialogue, or characters talking to each other. Dialogue helps bring stories to life. Every time you switch speakers, you make a new paragraph. Sometimes this means that your paragraphs are really short, because all a character might say is, "Nope." If that's all he says, though, that is as long as the paragraph needs to be.


That's all I have to say. ^_^

If I owe you a reply or a thread and you're not on this list please let me know. I am scatterbrained like air molecules so I might have just forgotten. Dx

Time seems to move in slow motion, lately. Is that normal? I read a thing I wrote three days ago, and feel like I wrote it last week.


It has been sooooo long since I've written about being a mage of any kind, and now I'm finally doing it again as a creepy hypnotist. Since magic is such a dangerous thing here, with overgiving an easy risk with magic users, I'm having fun for the first time describing magic as a more physical feeling.

Sometimes I TOTALLY want to reach across the room and pick up the soda I left on my desk, but it's SO far and I'm SO comfy on my bed. I just reach and wave my hand, cautiously hoping on the off chance that THIS is the moment when I discover I am telekinetic.

It hasn't worked yet but I keep trying. I'm not a quitter.

But magic in Miz isn't just waving your hand and making stuff happen. I was reading the webbing article yesterday after some guy in chat was talking about ghosts and webbing, and became piqued by a particular passage about some guy actually making an art out of WEAVING his own djed (into nets or something I think?). I thought that was totally badass, and I just imagined him actually drawing invisible strands out of himself (visible to himself) and working them into little cat's cradle arrays between his fingers. SO COOL. But what would it FEEL like?

If I reached my hand toward my soda, at the perfect moment here when my latent telekinesis finally activates, what if it didn't just follow my gestures or the flick of my fingers? What if I felt the cold aluminum in my palm as the can lifted, or if the feeling of the can weighed down my arm as I tried to move it? I've never described magic as a tangible sensation before!

So I wrote some neat lines into my latest post as Laszlo applied his hypnotism on a hapless Seven.

Hypnotizing through voice:
"I want it to be mine."

The piquant sting of djed danced on the tip of Laszlo's tongue, flavoring his words with a flash of desire. He'd seen the way those wide scarlet eyes had taken in the easy glow of the tiles, watched a set of longing fingers brush against the stars. Magic or not, it was a material thing, after all. It could be purchased. Owned. All for the simple exchange of coin.


Hypnotizing through eye contact:
Laszlo's amethysts sidled into the crooks of his eyes, angled not quite directly at Seven. He pushed his tongue into a fang as his djed pushed at the backs of his eyes.

It could be fun, was the thought Laszlo pushed into Seven's head, worded in the halfblood's own voice.


Ugh it was sooo fun writing about hypnotism this way. Can't WAIT to try it on Victor!

And Siofra.

And Ambrose.

And Abalia.

And tons of others. Man, Laszlo is kind of a butt, now that I think about it...

A handsome butt.
