Some poetry…

Wrote a couple poems recently. Figured I might as well post them upon the internets. Make viewing after the jump.

Live and Learn… Latin

Hey, remember when I said I’d be making more random blog posts during my time away from fanfictioning? Well here’s one now!

I started this to “study” for my Latin final this past school year, and only got around to finishing it recently. I have translated “Live & Learn” by Crush 40 from SA2 into the great language of the ancient Romans. There were some parts that were hard to translate directly so I took a little artistic and grammatical liberty. This isn’t actually the first song I’ve done this with, but it is Sonical and recently completed. and now that I figured how to make macrons in Word, I decided to post it. REGUSTĀ!

Woot! Anniversary time!

And what better way to celebrate than fanfiction! Specifically the finale three chapters of Alternate Ending. I’m not gonna say anything about them here because I might ruin something, so just go and read them and prepare for awesomeness!

And I of course I totally had this all prepared long ahead of time and was only pretending to freak out and definitely spend all day yesterday writing and still not finish so I had to quick finish and post it this morning… that would just be foolish.

As for the future, for a little while I will be, as odd as it sounds considering my usual release schedule, taking a break from fanfictioning. Meaning I’m not gonna announce a new story soon for a couple reasons.

1) I just spent most of yesterday writing so I’m slightly burnt out.

2) School is beginning soon, so there’s that.

3) I’m not sure what story to do next.

And I also need to write a script for a random video my friends and I might make.

But that’s not to say this site won’t see any updating in a while. I’ll probably start doing more of those rant posts I’d been planning, with me talking about random stuff that will most likely pertain to the Sonic universe/fandom. Maybe some game reviews, who knows. But until then, go read the thrilling conclusion of Alternate Ending, and Happy Emerald Shrine Day!

Oh hey, it’s almost August 1st…

OH CRAP IT’S ALMOST AUGUST 1ST AND I’M STILL WORKING ON ALTERNATE ENDING! AND I ALSO DON’T HAVE ANYTHING FANCY PLANNED FOR SAID DATE WHICH FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT AWARE IS THE WEBSITE’S ANNIVERSARY AND AS IS TRADITION PRETTY MUCH ANYWHERE WHEN THERE IS AN ANNIVERSARY OF SOME SORTS IT MUST BE CELEBRATED IN FASHION RELATED TO THE OCCASION!

I should probably get back to work. For now you can go enjoy the latest chapter of Alternate Ending. Which consists of the “wee-bit of strategizing, some plot, another character added (official this time), strategizing” section of my outline that I last posted. Which means next is the part with all the BATTLE and what not.

In other site news that actually happened earlier this week but I didn’t bother posting about it cause I knew this post was coming, I added a forum link to the top bar. Which since that can only link to pages on the site, is just a page where you can click a link to get to Chaotix. So, people reading this who aren’t on Chaotix yet, go join!

Happy Robotnik Day!

Oh, and that blue spiky thing too…

But seriously (as serious as you can get with a video game franchise based around a blue woodland critter [which is actually surprisingly serious {I like parenthetical additions to sentences}]), it is once again the day when the fandom celebrates the release of Sonic the Hedgehog on the SEGA Genesis (I say Genesis because I’m AMERICAN [IN AMERICA! {WITH MORE BRACKETS!}]).

It’s also conveniently the release of SA2 in the rest of the world, because apparently SEGA of America overlooked the awesome timing they could have had with its release. Nevertheless, what better way to celebrate than with fanfiction! To that end, I present you with another chapter of Alternate Ending! I initially thought I was gonna finish it all for today, then I realized I still had five chapters left, so… In any case, the chapters after this will pretty much go thusly, theme wise: wee-bit of strategizing, some plot, another character added (official this time), strategizing, then BATTLE with more BATTLE on top of BATTLE with a dash of BATTLE and some sprinkling of PLOT and MOAR CHARACTERS with a light seasoning of REFERENCES and more PLOT all served with a fine helping of FINAL BOSS!!!

It’ll be fun. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go play some SA2… especially since I somehow ended up deleting my save file.

Don’t you hate it when…

…your school/dorm’s internet censoring/parental controls software decides to block 99% of the websites you go to on a daily basis?

Yeah, this is kind of just a rant, but hey, we are on a blogging website after all. My guess is either they were just messing with the settings (because last week almost nothing was blocked) or the software just likes to mess with people, but either way pretty much every site in my bookmarks is blocked. So I hope there isn’t an explosion of members on Chaotix while this is like this. After it’s fixed, then we can let everyone in! But as it is I’m amazed I can even get on here.

One funny thing about this(and it isn’t the first time it’s happened; it’s just never been this bad) is that some websites have changed the reason they’re blocked. For example, deviantART is currently blocked because of “Community” along with Facebook and Twitter, but if it is blocked then it’s usually blocked for “Mature Content”. But of course Community is different from “Message Board”, which is what Chaotix (and MLIA strangely enough) are blocked for. Oh, and of course GameFAQs, TSS, and OC Remix are all blocked because of “Game”.

Rant aside, in site/life related news, I am now done with the Speech season (made it to State but didn’t place…), which means I have nothing going on anymore as far as after school shnizz goes, which also means I’ll probably be getting back to writing. I’ve kind of been itching to do some creatin’, and I also just really want to finish AE because 1) I’ve been working on it for like 2 years! 2) I love the ending. and 3) 2 years! Once/if it’s unblocked (I’m sure someone has already complained at a Supervisor about it, but they don’t control all the tech stuff.) I’ll probably make a topic on Chaotix asking what y’all wanna see next. I’ve got a couple ideas.

Also, maybe later tonight or sometime tomorrow I’m gonna throw up my scripts from Speech this year and last, and possibly some other little things I’ve got lying around on my computer. So you can look forward to that.

The problem with Internet April Fool’s…

It only works when people actually visit your site… anyway, I’m leaving SHADOW FOUND WEPON UP, so if you’d like to read it you may go ahead and do so. That is all.
