    Interdimensional, at the moment. At least there's Wi-Fi.
  • Interests
    In ten words? Outer space, inner pie; a bunch of other nerdy things.

    In many, many more? Well, I think reading and writing go without saying. I also quite like astronomy and psychology. Languages are fun; so are alphabets and ciphers. Vexillology, heraldry, and sigillography are also interests of mine. I enjoy most kinds of music, especially classical, rock, and electronic. Art isn't really my thing, though I rather like van Gogh's work. While I'm not really a fan of comics, I do enjoy various other superhero media, the MCU especially. Crime shows are also fun. So is eating, for that matter, especially cheese.

  1. Random Stuff X: Something Weird

    Ooh, I'll add them to my list. Ah, fanfic. I've been wanting to write some for years now. Maybe using it like this, as a way to practice, will help. Thanks for the advice. Actually, I'm reminded a bit of Wayne when he's slipping into a role -- he tries out different motivations and voices until he finds the right one, and then he proceeds to infiltrate enemy territory with ease.
  2. Random Stuff X: Something Weird

    A good way to go about it. I just have trouble with characters in general. Though recently, I've been able to assign dialogue based on "hmm, how would this character feel about this, and how would they say it?" So I think I'm getting better. We'll see.
  3. Random Stuff X: Something Weird

    Yeah, I'm a lot more flexible when it comes to worldbuilding and plot, but characters? I have this weird idea I'm trying to kick that if I make them up as I go along, then that trait isn't "real", or "valid" or whatever -- that just because I made it up on the spot, with no particular reason, it can't be a "real" part of them. It's stupid, I know, but...
  4. Random Stuff X: Something Weird

    That... is a lot smarter than the whole "ZOMG I MUST HAVE IT ALL FIGURED OUT BEFOREHAND OR IT IS NOT VALID!!1!" thing I've been doing, actually.
  5. Having a Bad Day?: Get 'yer Hugs here!!

    I believe (not 100% sure, as this is just hearsay, so please do correct me if I'm wrong) that in the military, they require you to make your bed every morning, the philosophy being that even if you had a horrible day, you could come back and say "well, at least I did something right." It's a philosophy that I quite like.
  6. Sanderson "Would you Rather"

    ChayShan. I don't know, it just seems cool, while Bloodsealing... well, it's not quite human sacrifice, but it comes a bit close for my liking. Even if I did like that character from TES. Would you rather live in the Fractured States or the United Isles of America?
  7. Oohh. Okay. Guess I really am Slow. See, I 1) do not live where y'all live, so things are most assuredly different there, and 2) I've heard stories of the Horrid Midterms, but I either didn't have to take them myself for whatever reason or they weren't as intense here as I'd been led to believe.
  8. Oh, right. Those. Glad you passed!
  9. Random Stuff X: Something Weird

    There's also the fact that, for the longest time, our state tree was the Colorado Blue Spruce.
  10. Random Stuff X: Something Weird

    Seagulls are actually Utah's state bird. We're also landlocked. Though, for us it makes a little more sense that they'd be hanging around because there actually are two quite large lakes in the area. Also, there's that cool story where the pioneers' crops were being totally obliterated by crickets, and after much praying, a bunch of seagulls came and ate them all.
  11. Pet Peeves

    Know that feel -- I literally (and as far as I can remember, I mean that) haven't had clear skin since I was like, twelve. It's the worst.
  12. What Are You Reading, Part 2

    Lately I've been reading Steven Brust's books chronicling the adventures of the assassin Vlad Taltos. Absolutely 110% recommended. (So far. I'm only four books in; it could take a dive at any time)
  13. I have no idea what that is, but I'm happy for you, so
  14. Compliment the person above you!

    You seem like a pretty nice guy. Also you take care of cats and do coding -- all of which are excellent attributes in my book.
  15. Someone at church forgot the word "hobby," and now my new favorite was to describe it is "something you do on the side for joy." :P:D
