Been a while, huh?

So, it seems like I haven’t written anything for a while. I mean sure, just recently I posted a bunch of things, but they were written in september… So I decided to write something more. Like, I don’t really know what, but I did see a bunch of movies. Like the… Oh yes! The Judge with Robert Downey Jr. and what was the other one? …
O ja! The Interstellar. It was one of teh few sci-fy I can actually see. It was nice and I liked the whole idea of interconnected timelines. I love when timelines are connected or when there’s time travel to the past when it is actually relevant, like… I don’t know, for example how it was in HP 3 or even in X-men: Days of Future past. And then there is this one book where it really is interconnected like to the point that you have to directly interact with your past’s self. Okay, the english original is called Circle of Magic: Danger in the Palace. And this is book five out of six. I have them all and I’ve read them all, but this fifth one will always be my favourite.
And seriously, if you get your hand on it, read it. It’s worth it. I mean sure, it’s just this little book, but I like it.
As for the main reason that I haven’t been writing, well, I have a lot of schoolwork to do and I have been reading a lot of stories and also playing Grimrock. Yes, I know – shocker. But well, it’s like the best game invented! And I just can’t wait to get my hands on Grimrock 2. From what I’ve been told, it’s awesome!

I’ve also been writing stories. Lately, I’ve been a lot into fanfiction and been writing it a lot. Mainly Grimrock fanfiction, but I’m also a big fan of crossovers and so some of my Grimrock stories are crossed with for example Harry Potter or something. But it’s not just Grimrock I write, I also write HP crossovers. And lately, I’ve been thinking about writing an Avengers go into Grimrock story, but I have yet to figure out how to do it so that they end in there. I mean, I could just have Loki magick them there with a botched spellwork, but the thing is it would be a shame if Loki wasn’t there as well. And while a botched spellwork could do it, it’s not enough. So I will probably have to figure out something better.
Hopefully, my mind will supply me with something soon.
Because, recently, I figured how to make Grimrock portraits and therefore my custom characters with my own portraits and not with just what I download. So… I googled a lot and found a cute chibi avengers Picture so I disected it to the right sizes and created first and foremost Loki, then Tony, Hawkeye and Thor and as an afterthought a portrait of Hulk. Though I’m not playing with him just yet. So far, I’m playing with the other four. And more or less without cheating. The one thing I did though was to add some extra traits. Like headhunter for example and of course, thunderstruck.
Heh. Maybe I will go and listen to some AC/DC.
So bye.

Maze Runner

(Written on 27. 9. 2014)

111I love Marvel, I love Marvel Cinematic universe, but I also love fantasy and dystopian movies. And this time, I was in luck. Yesterday, I went to the cinema with my mother to see the Maze Runner movie. And it was awesome! A band of boys and one girl trapped in this gigantic maze swarming with “greavers”. Amazing. And with no idea why they’re there and no idea how to get out. That is, until the newbie boy manages to kill one of the greavers and they find they are at least part machines and tak√© one of the parts with them.

The boy (Thomas) then goes exploring again, with another guy – Minho and they find a section of the maze, they haven’t found before. And they start thinking that there might be a way out after all.

But one of the other guys doesn’t want to get out of there, he says that this is their home now. Well, let’s just say, that their area suddenly openes all of the gates and the greavers start pouring in. After that, the group splits in two, one part stays and the other one, they decide to try and find a way out. They manage, but loose a few of their own. After that, some questions are answered, but many more arise and the kids are herded into a chopper and fly somwhere who knows where, which will probably be in the next movie.

And I can’t wait for it.

My mother doesn’t agree with all the unanswered questions, but I think it makes it interesting. Like, a lot of speculations between the people who didn’t read the books and probably even between the ones who read them. I myself am actually thinking about reading the second book, because, hey! I want to know what happenes next! The movie was amazing! And it also has huge potential for fanfiction. Well, so far there are only a few right now, but I’m hoping there will be more with time.

Well, that’s probably it for now.

See ya next time.

Writing 101 – Day Seven: Give and Take

(Written on 18. 9. 2014 for Dailypost’s Writing 101)

This time, it’s to write about a contrast between two things. And you know? The first thing that came to my mind was to write about darkness and light and somehow incorporate my usual rant about darkness being the same as evil and light being good, because you know, that’s a total bulshit. Yeah, sure, Light and darkness are opposites and all that, that’s true. They are balanced and one can’t really exist without the other, but they are vastly different. With darkness is usually associated destruction and chaos. While that may be, I like to think that there can be other things to darkness. And as for light, usually healing is a part of light and also anything white.

Well, on the other hand, what if there is no light and darkness, just shades of gray that sometimes can seem white and sometimes gray?

And as for the comparsion of light and darkness to good and evil, I hate when people do that, because I’m of the opinion that light and darkness are just elements. Two of the seven primary elements. Yes, now you’re going to argue with me that there are only four, but hey! I can bend the rules, that’s why it’s called fantasy! Anyone can do anything they want with it. It’s not facts! So, for me, the seven primary elements are light, darkness, fire, water, earth wind and lightning. Because you just cannot forget lightning.

And I feel like I’ve written something like this before. And several times…

With that said, I’ll end this post and see you with the next one.

Writing 101 – Day Five: Be Brief

(Written on 18. 9. 2014 for Dailypost’s Writing 101)

So I find a letter… What’s in it? Probably a conspiration theroy of some kind. I love those. and if I were to find a letter I would hope it would be some kind of a prediction of DOOM. As for returning it to the person adressed to, yeah, sure, I would, but only if they let me join in the conspiration theory! I want in!

So I would look and see who it’s adressed to and I would go there and I would threaten them to turn the letter to the police or burn it (it probably contains something of importance the theorist’s don’t want to lose) if they didn’t let me join in on the fun.

How’s that?

What would be in your letter and what would you do with it?

PS. Holy shit! This was written like… three months ago!
