Wow, I got next to no sleep last night.

Pills are still working! As long as I drag myself out of bed and take one.

I have so much crap to review. Three books and two video games. Though I'm not quite done with SH: Homecoming yet. It can't be too long, though. I'm heading to the prison now. My god, this is an incredible game. This is the way I like my horror. Subtle, creeping, and atmospheric. Atmosphere has always been a huge draw for me, in terms of the Silent Hill series, but Homecoming goes above and beyond. From the textures and shading to the background sound, everything blends perfectly to give this very eerie feel.

I do have some complaints about the weapons, but I almost always have complaints regarding weapons in the Silent Hill series. Right now, for melee weapons, I stick with the crowbar - yay long reach! - and the dagger. The shotgun is my friend, but damn there's not much ammo.

Love the characters, as always. There's a reason that 2 and 4 are my favorites of the series - they're extremely character focused. Homecoming seems pretty well split between delicious King-esque plot and characters. Which is a balance I have to say I quite enjoy. Alex is made of awesome and win. The side characters are fascinating and diverse. And oh-so-symbolic.

Plus? The street names in Shepherd's Glen fill me with fangirlish glee and giddiness.

I would, however, just once, like to have a Silent Hill that does not victimize the female characters. I know, I know, I'm asking too much. The Room tried, but they ended up with a no-win situation. Either Eileen is regulated to the damsel in distress role, or she actually does pick up a weapon and kick the shit out of monsters along side Henry...only to be further victimized due to those actions. It drives me insane.

I suppose I should just be happy there's finally a POC, and take that as a win.

We watched the fifth Harry Potter movie last night, and once more I was filled to the brim with nostalgia and longing. It's calling me back. I should just stop fighting and let it happen, really.

It's just nice to be taking interest in things and finding enjoyment in things again. That was missing for a good bit. Going out to see if I can finish getting things ready for con today!

Why does this always happen? I have deadlines for original work, and when the plot ideas and story snatches come, it's for fan fiction. I'm positively buzzing with ideas this morning.

I watched Prisoner of Azkaban again last night, because it was on. [ profile] nijawial was home this time, and watched it with me, and we had hilarious running commentary. And then, when we broke out the wine coolers, I dug out my Sirius Black poster and he's now looking over the living room from the prime spot above the couch. (Though once we find something else to go there, he's going to move to next to the front door, to be on a darker surface as Nija suggested.)

I have this bunny for a Silent Hill fic. It's just one that's going to take some thinking and tweaking to work, since it relies heavily on Henry getting stoned, and my general consensus for Henry re: drugs is: tried it a little in college, never really got into it, doesn't bother with it anymore.

But I was reading about people sharing their experiences with THC induced hallucinations, and got to thinking how that could really be something interesting to work with. Especially in a Silent Hill context. Which means it doesn't have to be Henry, he's just sort of my default when it comes to Silent Hill. ;) But I've never written Heather, and James is more of a booze hound than anything else.... (And I'll spare you my listing of every major SH character and my thoughts on them and drugs.)

On the other hand, I do have an idea for something I need to get submitted in April. Which means this is going to be another rush, but this will need rush editing. So I've got to bust my little butt on it. It only needs to be about 5,000 words, though.

Yay Monday.

So...anyone on my Flist who's in [ profile] damned still need NS plans? I've got a couple of characters with nothing to do! That would be two lovely ladies (Eileen and Naomi) and one somewhat patronizing elf (Valyn). :D Naomi's been posted already and is in the FA hall, Eileen and Valyn haven't been posted yet and can be sent anywhere. :D

And I really want people to wander into my monster sections. Every time I see a bathroom post I get so excited, and then realize it's not one of my bathrooms.

Well, clearly whatever weird funk I was having has passed. Which is always good. I'm even almost tempted to return to AIM. We'll see, though.

Last night I got to missing Harry Potter RP and fic again. Every so often it hits me, but last night it hit me hard. I was watching the third movie, and I got so damn nostalgic. To the point where when I woke up, the first thing I wanted to do was call my sister. But then I remembered it was Sunday and weekday mornings are best for calling her, so now I'm just sitting here considering going and reading some Snupin fic.

I've been having these bouts of nostalgia. Last week, it was for the old Dragon Riders of Pern RPs. Which I haven't been a part of years maybe? I don't know if it's just because my birthday's coming up or what, but the trips down memory lane have been more frequent and very, very strong.

I don't know. It's not like my current interests are waning any. I'm still very strongly into Silent Hill, Venture Bros and HBC. And yet....

Well, we'll just see what happens.

So, [ profile] annakas gave me an crossover prompt for the drabble meme. And it was awesome. And I started writing it immediately. And it ended up being 3224 words long. *headdesk* It turned out less of a threesome and more of a... well, you'll see. I said that you won, and apparently what you won was a fic 6 times longer than normal!

In order to understand this fic, it's best that you be familiar with Fullmetal Alchemist and Highlander. There's a small aspect of Harry Potter in here, but no familiarity is needed. This fic spans from 1950 to 1983, and is AU for Fullmetal Alchemist and a teeny, tiny bit AU for Highlander. I changed one minute detail for story purposes. The FMA movie does not exist in this fic, hence the AU. Alright, now that that's out of the way...
