La la la la la…. Not thinking about the holes in my plot, not thinking, not thinking, la la la la la la la…..

“I dunno, I think I missed the climax in there. I got all the build-up, and now I get we’re into the denouement, but… yeah, not sure where that climax was.”
-A friend, who is reading my first draft.

And the answer? It’s HIDING. The climax is HIDING. SNEAK-RATIVELY.

*cue mad, hysterical laughter*

Ahem.

Wordcount: 2,282
Scenes: 3
I really have no faith in anything I wrote today. My hope is only that, somewhere WAY underneath the confusion, there’s salvageable stuff. And on the subject of quality being VERY buried; The Scene That Mocked Me.
*level stare at the scene*
*scene laughs gently, knowing that it has won*
We had some fundamental disagreements. For one, the scene wanted Haggerty to beat people up with a table, and I said no, I wanted Tenish to be leet, we have had enough of Haggerty beating people with tables. So the scene sulked and refused to help me with tactics, and threw vauge shadowy veils of incomprehensibility over anything that I managed to wrestled out of it. There might have been pliers involved. What I’ve got now is the second version, becuase last night I gave up and deleted everything I’d written. Written PAINFULLY, and LABORIOUSLY, with much GRIPING and WEEPING and GNASHING OF TEETH. Bahnree knows.
Oh yes… she knows….
Anyhow. *cough* I rewrote it before work today, and I hate it only slightly less than last time. But instead of wanting to destroy it utterly and burn the dust, I only want to stake it out for the sea scavengers to tear into little tiny pieces and eat in front of its slowly desiccating eyes. (When Sea Scavengers = Teh Interwebs.)

I still have hope that there’s something good in there, it’s just WAY buried. Maybe the soldering iron part? ^_^

"… a decided Negative."

I wrote 2,477 words today. Of that, 2,070 was written after 22:20. WHYY?????

Actually, I don’t totally hate all of it either, which is new and exciting. 😛 Jennet was AWESOME. *hugs her* I knew you could do it, girly. And Neph. Wow. Neph was also SUCH a man. I need to rewrite that just to show how much of a man he was. Let’s see. Howling was disturbing and I tried to kill him twice, though it didn’t work. Oh, and Tenish. *sniffs* Tenish was just as leet as ever. Gosh, I need to get to something happy soon. Maybe I can marry off Terra and Pepper, really sickeningly sweetly?

Another OC meme! Because I don’t have enough OCs in my head.

I’m going to do this with the Charas who have been in my head most recently, and not the “main” ones. Cause I’m cool like that.

 Chose ten of your OCs. If you don’t have ten of your own, chose ten cool people. 

1 = Kassy
2 = Haggerty
3 = Basket Case
4 = Dulamon
5 = Jole
6 = Petria
7 = Sarti
8 = Howling
9 = Neph
10 = Jaslyn
1.) 4 invites 3 and 8 to dinner at his house. What happens?
Howling: “Mmmm, delicious morsels. Let me just get my sword and my assistant…”
Dulamon: “Not in the UO, you don’t.” *breaks Howling* *looks at Basket Case.* “Why do they always give me the crazy ones? Why? What crime have I committed against the fates?”
Basket Case: “Wait a second. I’m crazy? I can see your memories, dude!
Dulamon: “We are not discussing my morals right now, young man.”
Basket Case: “Maybe we should. You did What?
Dulamon: *headdesk*
2.) 9 tries to get 5 to go to a strip club. 
Jole: *looks at sign* “Are you sure this is the right place?”
Neph: “Yep!” *pulls out napkin with name printed on it* “They had these really awesome drinks which fizzed, though Tenish made me sit at the back so I’m not sure what they’re called.”
Jole: “Ah-huh.”
3.) You need to stay at a friend’s house for a night. Who do you choose, 1 or 6?
Kassy: “Sorry, but I don’t really have a house. Or an apartment. I’d offer to let you stay where I’m staying, but it’s kinda not mine. And I don’t think Ty would let me invite people over. Um, I have bus tickets, you can have, and oh! Getting arrested is always good for a place to sleep. And airports! They’re warm, and stuff.”
Petria: “Wait, you want to stay at my HOUSE? After what you did to me? No exiling way, thank you. Get out before I kick you in the head.”
Me: “Ummmmmm.”
4.) 2 and 7 are making out, 10 walks in. What are the reactions?
Jaslyn: *raises eyebrows* “Nice one, Sar. Though I wouldn’t think he’s quite your type…”
Sarti: *smiles* “Oh, he isn’t. I’m just practicing!”
Haggerty: ~Demons. You exiling are all exiling demons. And why did I let her make me a drink, anyways?~
5.) 3 falls in love with 6, 8 is jealous. What happens?
Basket Case: *after much attempting to convince* “I swear I know that I’m doing!”
Petria: “Right. Come back when you’re legal. Or not.”
Howling: “I saw her first…” *everyone in every ‘verse shoots him*
6.) 4 jumps you in a dark alleyway. Who comes to your rescue; 10, 2 or 7?
Me: “Go AWAY. I don’t want to be rescued!”
7.) 1 decides to start a cooking show. Fifteen minutes later, what is cooking?
Kassy: “Wait, do I actually have to make edible food, or can I just set things on fire? Oh. Oh, okay then. Let’s make butter toffee!” 
8.) 3 has to marry either 8, 4 or 9. Who do they choose?
Basket Case: “…” *looks again at the all-male options.* “Suicide it is, then.”
9.) 7 kidnaps 2 and demands something from 5 for 2’s release. What is it?
Sarti: “Hey, you with the eyebrows! Teach me how to read!”
Jole: *stares* “You really are on drugs, aren’t you?”
Haggerty: *is unconcious* *drugged to within an inch of his life* *tied up* *and in an locked room*
Sarti: “Or I tell Haggerty that you kidnapped him when he gets out!”
Jole: “Okay, we’d better work fast. This is the alphabet. Got that? Good.”
10.) Everyone gangs up on 3. Does 3 have a chance in hell?
Basket Case: “No, no I really don’t. I wonder if this is what happened last time?”
11.) Everyone is invited to 2 and 10’s wedding except for 8. How do they react?
Haggerty:
Jaslyn: “Oh, hush. You think you’re the one who’s coming out poorly from this deal?”
Howling: “You always leave me out. And to think I brought you all together.” *everyone shoots him, again*
12.) Why is 6 afraid of 7?
Petria: “She’s a drudge. With blue hair. Who knows how to read. And you never know what she’e gonna do!” *tries to look invisible as Sarti dances in, singing*
13.) 1 arrives late for 2 and 10’s wedding. What happens, and why were they late?
Kassy: “Sorry I’m late, I forgot to look at the clock. (And I kinda got distracted…)”
*everyone decides not to ask*
14.) 5 and 9 get roaring drunk and end up at your house- what happens?
Me: *walks in on drunken reminisces about death and suicide and girls, and walks out again.* *makes coffee in the morning*
15.) 9 murders 2’s best friend. What does 2 do to get back at 9?
THIS REPLY HAS BEEN CENSORED DUE TO EXTREME VIOLENT CONTENT.
16.) 6 and 1 are in mortal danger. Only one of them can survive. Does 6 save herself or 1?
Petria: “Uhhh, wait, I, I, I can’t just leave, I-“
Kassy: “Get out of here or I’ll come back and haunt you! MOVE!
17.) 8 and 3 go camping. For some reason they don’t have any food. What do they do?
Howling: *looks at Basket case*
Basket Case: *looks at Howling*
At the same time: “Food!”
18.) 5 is critically injured in a car crash. What does 9 do?
Neph: *drags out of wreck and calls the medics* *pats on head* “Don’t worry, the medics are really good, they can put you back together from anything! You’ll be back to as good as new in months!”
Jole: *groans* “Why does this never work…”

"We get to hallucinate too? I should have done this years ago!’

A shout out out to each of my poor mistreated (main) characters. 😀

Tenish: You’re made of awesome. You’re SO made of awesome. I’m sorry about what I’m going to do to you, I really am. But you’ll get through it- you’re made of awesome.
Haggerty: Watch your mouth, man. Though you probably did get me 200 extra words for that scene alone, not to mention the whole “fighting the guest” deal. I, ah, don’t quite know if I like you or not.
Neph: See, aren’t you glad you survived? You have the potential to be made of awesome, I just know it. *hugs him*
Jole: You poor man. Uh, I’m sorry. I’m sorry? I’ll get you out in the end, I SWEAR!
Bleach: You’re an arrogant S.O.B. and you need to bleed. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to show that yet. It will come, though, never fear.
Etna: Life happens, we know. I’ll get them out safe. I’m sorry? I’ll just be, uh, over here. Please don’t look at me.
Jaslyn: You’re hard core, woman. *runs away*
Sarti: See, aren’t you glad you unexpectedly turned out to be a druggie? Now you get to play with ships, and hallucinate and stuff! *sheepish* I’ll, uh, find you a nice guy. *cough* *backs away*
Bensch, Tru, Terra and Pepper: Your moment will come, I swear. You have good moments, too. With books and ribbons.
Dane: I hate you. *slaps him*
Verjinya: STOP CRYING, GIRL. *slaps her*
Petria. Well, now that I know your backstory, it makes more sense. I’m sorry you ever looked at Dane? *pats on shoulder* And it just gets worse for you, too. I’m sorry. See, here’s some nice chocolate! You like chocolate, right?
Appel: *laughs* I don’t actually know your backstory, or what you have hidden in that room of yours, or what illegal activities you’re engaged in. But I’m sure they’re VERY interesting. And your tattoo is shiny.
Jennet: I’m sorry… *hugs her* But you’re too smart to not know the truth.
Tanner and all the Guardians: I’M SORRY!!!!!! I NEEDED DEATH SCENE!
Kael: I would apologize, but you brought it all on yourself. And you know this. Look, it does get better, eventually. So don’t get too drunk, please? Uh, Tenish, could you watch Kael please? She’s gone off to hurt herself again…
Dulamon: You might be one of my favorite characters of all time. So I send creepy women your way and set you on fire. Huh. CAUSE I KNOW YOU CAN HANDLE IT!!! And the message thing was really sweet, it really was. Too bad she never got the messages and settled for cutting herself instead. Yep, you fail, man. Maybe I’ll give you a second chance?
Howling: Uh, please no torture? I mean, what would be the point of that? Uh, don’t answer that. I’ll just stay on the other side of the ‘verse, thank you. Stay away. I will shoot you with a flame thrower!
I like my story. 😀
