It’s that time

You know that time. The time EVERYONE dreads.

The sex talk. Birds and the Bees. The awkward time for everyone in the house; even the pets.

You get the idea.

Also, this is rated as NSFW because of reasons. Continue reading

Dynamic Duos

And we’re not talking about Batman and Robin. I’ve had enough of those two in Lego Batman 2, thank you very much.

Another thing that’s interesting about writing is when you start shipping your own characters. (Shipping, for the uninitiated, is when you take two characters and make them lovers, regardless of cannon.) One thing I really struggled with writing for my epic was a love story. I feel like that as a young woman, Anya would have several little crushes that manifested through out her journey in life, and eventually she would fall in love, get married, and have a wonderful life.

After her rebellion, of course.

But I could never properly ship her with any of the other characters. Vriss was too old, Riga was too crazy, Sarnath was too… Sarnath-like. But then Shahain came along. Shahain developed an obsession with Anya; she was a free woman, roaming around the country side, popping in and out of situations with ease, while maintaining her status as a thorn in his side. She would be a challenge to “tame”, a challenge that he welcomed.

If the circumstances were different, say she wasn’t a freedom fighter in possession of a deadly weapon and he had a better grasp on reality, they might be quite perfect together. But alas, his grip on reality is waning and Anya is still in possession of a deadly weapon.

(CAUTION: This sprint has swearing in it towards the end. Like lots of it. From surly old men.) Continue reading

Five second characters

On one of my daily prowls through Reddit, I saw a thread that went something like this:

“Your username is now the title of a porn. What’s it about?”

Curiosity over took me, and I started reading the thread. So I decided to post one about my username, because that’s a brilliant idea! What started out as a five second character has now spawned into a potential serial story, with episodes and an over all plot arc, major villian included for FREE.

This is how it started:

“The Great Gonzo: episode 26 “Watership Down”

The continuing adventures of the bandit Gonzo, on a quest to find some peace and quiet. This week, we find our heroine trying to survive an all-out brawl between the forces of good, evil, and those that don’t care (Gonzo). Trapped in an underground cavern with a band of pretty useless princes, the group must fight an octopus merman, who holds the princess Marjorie captive!”

Then I ran into a problem.  Well, two problems. 1) I had two possible endings; 2) I’m now attached to the character of Gonzo the Rouge for hire. She’s traveled through out the land, made friends with an orc chieftain (something humans dont’ do), and just been a general badass like Buffalo Bill Cody.

But back to the endings. As I was writing the description, I gave her two outcomes: a dirty one and a not immediately dirty one, but it would probably wind up being dirty later on.

This next part is NSFW if you catch my drift. Continue reading
