It's amazing how much a single change can alter how you look at and/or love a character.

My group is getting ready to start up a new game with a new (to me) DM, so we were making new characters. There was nothing that really stuck out to me. I mean, I know how to play casters who cast spontaneously - sorcerers and Oracles. But nothing - and I mean NOTHING - was standing out. I'd had an idea previously of a reverse necromancer (you put the dead things back in the ground. Permanently.) but.. eh.

So we were flipping through books, and all of the sudden my boyfriend gets a wonderful idea: Make an Aasimar sorcerer! You can be all BOOM, but that angel-touched blood will make for a great reverse necromancer in the future.

It sounded good so I said.. eh, okay. I made an Aasimar sorcerer. For those who don't know, an Aasimar is a character/race from the first Bestiary who has a large amount of celestial or angel blood. The book specifies it's angel mixed with human.

So later that night my boyfriend was drawing our characters on the back of our character sheets, and.. well.. he misjudged his drawing's proportions for my character. She came out.. um.. short. But then I got the idea - why can't angels mate with halflings, instead? We went to the DM and asked if we could change her to a halfling Aasimar - make the stat changes to account for her being shorter, but not necessarily give her the benefits of the halflings (because we didn't want to switch those benefits/drawbacks for the Aasimar ones).

Our DM said ok! And when I changed Mercy from a human Aasimar to a halfling one, I just fell in love with her.

I think I'll have fun with her now.

Yknow, I feel like I should post more on here, since I'm reading and commenting and people seem to be friending me again. Trouble is, I have nothing interesting to say.. got up, tired and cold (AGAIN), at work.. bored. Story of my life. Random fun incidentals seem to go up on Tumblr, like Unfucking my Habitat (go look it up on Tumblr or Facebook, it's AWESOME!) or posting screenshots of my updated League of Legends stats. I suppose when I start sewing for faire again (which, honestly, should be SOON since I'm sewing stuff for both myself and my boyfriend (henceforth known as The Boy, unless I think of something better *grin*) ), I can put up pictures.

Let's see, what's happening in my life: My current job is ending (as far as I know) at the end of May; I'm looking for a new job but haven't gotten any bites yet (though I have several leads); I'm slowly teaching myself Javascript via codecademy; I've roped The Boy into faire and get to make him garb (yay? At least it's Cuthie's garb and not St. Luke's...); The Boy and I are celebrating 9 months together tomorrow (well the celebration will probably be on Thursday as that's Date Night, but tomorrow is the anniversary); apparently I really like parenthesis.

Also, I have gotten addicted to Draw Something. If you play, hit me up: I'm Ankhet on DS.. yeah, I keep screen names for DECADES.

ETA: I forgot to add: I'm slowly getting hooked on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. PinkyPie is annoying, but not as annoying as Rarity.

ALSO! I have a Tumblr, it's kind of fun. Mine's a mixture of Things I Find Pretty and/or Geekily Amusing, and some feminist/body acceptance/political stuff. (Not a whole lot of out-and-out politics, except as regards myself as a uterus-bearer and/or Person With a Vagina. AKA reproductive rights and/or rape culture.)


Anyhow, if y'all want to check it out, it's at http://getinthehandbasket.tumblr.com/

Going through my f-list and the communities I used to read to kill time in college, I remember why I love LJ, and wonder why I stopped reading! (Of course, the answer to that is World of Warcraft... only I've kind of dropped off the face of Azeroth in favor of League of Legends, until I have some free time - so either when this temp job is up if I don't have a new one, or when Faire is over so I have weekends again.)

Uh.. hi! Anyone remember me? I'm baaaaack. For now, at least. I seem to have an abundance of free time right now, but no ability to play any video games - so I have rediscovered my love of LJ. Hi!
