Pinned toot

not new to mastodon, but haven't had anything to post for a long time. happy to find a fandom instance!

i'm larissa and i spend way too much writing. the rest of the time is spent playing video games and procrastinating on writing. mostly into final fantasy, but can also be found yelling about fallout, critical role, mass effect, pokรฉmon, and extremely obscure video game soundtracks no one's ever heard of. if you want vg music recs, hit me up.

i have spent all evening trying to find a new hosting provider for my fansites (since the host i've had for 10+ years doubled their cost, thanks guys)

and lemme fucking tell you, this is just as annoying a process as it was in 2007

i swear to god there is nothing like following a fic that gets updated once a year (MAYBE) (i don't even think it was updated last year??) but each update is *so good* that i don't even CARE

(and also i've been following this fic for, like, a decade?? WORTH IT.)



i spent all day finally pulling together my wordcount stats for 2018 BUT AT LEAST IT'S FINALLY DONE

tbh considering this disaster of a graph is what made me set it down two weeks ago, i'm glad i was able to come back to it at all... charts are not my friend. BUT TODAY. TODAY I HAVE CONQUERED. โš”๏ธ ๐Ÿ“Š

two minutes later: hey i wonder if it's that add-on that affects every single website i visit that i updated just this morning.................

firefox is doing this fun thing where all my new tabs and websites open to blank pages so i guess it's time to play the "which add-on is acting up" game

so i had a dream last night that, even *in* the dream, was an idea for a new original story. when i woke up i wrote down everything i could remember, along with most of a plot, and even wrote out the ending.

i'm now reading it back over, and while it's gonna need some work, it's not half bad! thanks, dream!me!

ALSO: I HAVE A TITLE. AND CHARACTER NAMES. i don't even have that for the story i've been noodling on for a year!!

me @ 4pm: okay if i sit down at the computer now i can probably get a half hour of writing in before six
me @ 5pm, having accomplished absolutely nothing past fucking around on the internet: i hate it when i'm right

dear rdr2:
why is the โ€œget on horseโ€ button the same as the โ€œCHOKE OUT THE NEAREST PASSERBY AND IMMEDIATELY BECOME WANTED FOR AGGRAVATED ASSAULTโ€ button
no love, me

Looking through my HZD screenshots and I've just realised that half of them were me unconsciously trying to recreate this Freidrich painting.

all of this said: i'm like 15 hours in don't fucking spoil me for anything or so help me god. now, back to it...

whatever complaints i have about the gameplay (and i have a lot), the level of simulation this game goes to is unreal. there are a lot of tedious things in rdr2, but the end result is that it makes the entire world seem far more real. a lot of games try the open world thing, but one of the reasons a lot of them are bad at it is because they can't hide the seams - you know you're just doing this shit because it's a game. the level of immersion in rdr2 goes a long way towards hiding those things.

reasons red dead redemption 2 is a good video game: i had a duel on top of a moving train, won, and jumped down onto my horse running alongside it

reasons rdr2 is a bad video game: i constantly have to feed arthur snack cakes to keep him from being underweight, to say nothing of keeping all my guns on the fucking horse and making me get them off EVERY SINGLE TIME. also the fact that it took me ten hours to unlock fast travel, jesus fucking christ

now that i don't have to write a ton every day i seem to be developing an actual sleep schedule....... who even am i
