Oct 1 Sentence

I’m trying to get back into writing. It’s been months since I’ve wrote even a fucking sentence that wasn’t for the blog intro, a review, or D&D. In the interests of building up the habit I’ve been trying to do the ‘write every day’ thing but just haven’t had much luck with most of the metrics I have place. So, I have decided to lower the bar down to a single sentence minimum. One sentence of writing that is pure fiction, not for anything else.

Here is today’s:

In the ruins of a perfect life-sized replica of Canterlot made entirely out of cake, Princess Celestia could only sit and wonder where her beautiful plan for a midnight snack had gone so completely wrong.

I’ve been playing Portal 2 lately, and I’ve come to the conculsion it’s kind of a bad game. I mean the puzzles are neat some of the time, and the dialogue is very funny (in a dark humor way) almost all the time, but the entire middle of the game (the underground bits) are just kind of terrible. I’m still going to get all the way to the end (now that I’m out of the middle section) but it should have been half of the length it is.

The Commander’s Compromise by kudzuhaiku
Another story by the author that is decent-to-good, but makes me feel like I’m missing something. I’ve started The Weed, so hopefully that will fill in at least some of the blanks, but it’s still not a good thing. Shining Armor is nearly unrecognizable. The author has the whole stern detached leader thing going on. Which isn’t bad, just pretty much on the far other side of things from the show and most fan fiction depictions of him. Was quite jarring. The show is light and fluffy, the author writes dramatic but low-key slice of life fantasy (genre), and the world in the stories seems to bounce between epic fantasy and dark fantasy. So… I find it causes quite a bit disconnect when I’m reading his stuff.

Morning Surprise by Majin Syeekoh
Amusing in the same vein as the story it is a sequel to. Princess Cadance’s arrival was the best part. In a silly out of nowhere joke sort of fashion.

So, time is a thing. Getting old. One of the surprises was not that the younger generations (however you want to define that) like different things than I do. I mean, I was expecting that given my own growing up as a nerd-ish child of the 80s gave me a fairly specific area of social inputs. (TMNT, Roadhouse, early anime, etc) so I figured that anyone younger than I by a decade or two (or three) would have a different set of cultural/social inputs. The surprise was that I have absolutely no clue what those might be. I think about what might be sticking in the head of someone in their teens or younger and I have no clue what they might consider Transformers cartoon level important. I mean, sure, the ones with good taste are enjoying the correct parts of MLP, but other than that? Piff. No clue. Makes me feel old, but not as old as League of Legends did/does. Also, I’m getting nearer the age my parents were when I was a kid old enough to actually understand how old they were. Guh. Why hasn’t the singularity happened and the all-power AI made us all immortal slaves yet? Or at least solved the sleep problem.

Woo. Home.

Finally home. Last day was a bit of grinding teeth, but I survived and the person in the car with me survived. So everything worked out. Now I just have to deal with the 240+ notifications on my FimFiction feed. Ouch. Maybe I’ll avoid that for another day or two.
