Ok on the Lord and the Duchess. I am eliminating chapters from the side characters and instead focusing on Elisabetta (the Duchess), Daniyel (the Lord), and Jean Michele (the Duke) as the main story is really about them and the rest of the stuff I had in my outline was subplot. That story can wait and right now it's all a mash and I'm like 15K and 50 pages in and she's just about to arrive to the fucking place. So basically I'm gonna start over.

Right now I'm shooting for the book to hit 70-80K maybe? I have to break down the wordcount into little goals or otherwise that number seems impossibly big to me. It's like how I read. If it's a big book break it down. 100 pgs one hr. 100 more the next. I find I work better that way.

I wrote a sestina but it makes no damn sense but I think the form is better this time around than the one I did on Matilide and Stefano. But it makes no sense so I will be working on it. I need to look through my past drafts for the month of December and then work on them. Ay!

Hey two posts in four hours? I've done worst.

I was talking to my computer expert (Martel) and I was discussing stuff with him. He was telling me how to replace my internal hard drive. I seriously need a new one because the current has only like 19 GB and I don't know what else to delete. So I'm going to buy this. It'll probably end up being 900 and something GB in actuality, but that's way more than this thing came with.

I played Medieval today. I have a few pictures to share with you guys.

Lady Horacia of Albibi

This is one of my Hero Sims. Her name is Horacia Alcheri. I based her on the wife of Stefan in some of the stories that take place before current time in the TMC verse.

Albibi

This is Albibi. I named if after Horacia's homeland in the series.

Chatting

Wildflowers

Fight

Macking

Gruel

For Hire

Horacia went out to pick wildflowers were she encountered a bandit. They dueled. She won that mofo. She did some often stuff like gather stone and went to the village where one of her people told her they were getting bullied, so she sent the woman to the stocks haha.

Then she returned home and macked on the lady merchant before talking to her advisers and things and sending out for hire.

I really like this game haha. I finished my first quest.

Anna Everart (B) TS3 Version

This is how imagine Anna to look like. She has a thin face and she thinks her best feature are her eyes.

Henri du Bois (B) TS3 Version

I'm not completely happy with Henri though. He looks similar to this in my head, but at the point that he meets Anna he's more athletic and bulky. Oh and he doesn't have a piercing, I was just lazy and I didn't feel like removing that.

All I Want Is You

They are engaged in the game, but Henri has the Commitment Issues and the Irresistible trait, so yeah.

Amelie du Bois (B) Marguerite du Bois (B)

Though Amelie and Marguerite were raised together, the two couldn't be more different. Amelie is fun lovely, bubbly and full of life and Marguerite is the shyer of the two. The two share their father's deep brown eyes, but Amelie takes highly after her mother, Queen Elisabeth.

Amelie is the blonde one, Marguerite is the brunette.

I decided to make Sim versions of some of my characters. I started downloading period clothes AFTER I had started the game and had decided to do this, so that is why they are in contemporary clothing. Marguerite is wearing something that I recolored as practice, but I can still spot some of the original color at the seams, so I'm going to practice some more.

Day 25: Do any of your char­ac­ters have pets? Tell us about them.

I remember I mentioned that Elisabeth had a cat at one point. But the cat was really just a plot device so she would have a reason to come into contact with her crush.

But Mari does have two cats based as they were on the two cats I owned when I about sixteen. I really enjoy writing Nettie, Gigi is a little diva haha.

Day 19

Day 19: Favorite minor that decided to shove him­self into the spot­light.

I had to think about this one for a minute. But after rejecting two previous candidates, I settled on Colette Cx3.

Colette first appeared in a piece about Cosette. Really she was just a woman that Gilles was flirting with to make Cosette jealous. Sometime after I decided that she and Gilles would be married after Cosette married Henri. I didn't really start to develop her until the very end of last year. I think she's my favorite because she's defined so much by her deep sated love for Gilles. I'm still exploring why exactly she loves him so much as she had a husband before Gilles. I'm working on her and interested to see where it leads her.

I'm going out today. I should be in bed right now, but I'm going to stay up for the moment. Trust me I will wake up regardless when it comes to money and shopping haha :P

I realized as I was looking at my LJ that besides the meme, I haven't really updated much. Well let's make this entry the update.

Writing wise, I've written 21,628 words this month. That's not bad, but I was going for 30,000. Some day I only wrote half of my daily goal, but I'm pretty happy with what I have this month.

I've also been developing the countries and religions outside of Adeodata. There are two "discovered" continents, Aigiria and Abera or "The Heart Isles". They haven't really came into the story fully but both of them will be major players sometime soon. But I want to write about them, I just need to do some more fleshing out.

Reading wise, I'm currently on my sixth book of the year. I want to try to finish it before January is over, so it can count towards January. My sort of goal is to read 5 books a month, if not more, but it's not a hard fast rule.

My sleeping schedule is still out of whack. I took my meds last night, but I didn't fall asleep until like 6 and I slept most of the day. I even missed the premiere of the Carrie Diaries, though I woke up long enough to actually change the channel to the CW.

Everyone here is alright. Bisco is doing well. His little mini me will not leave him alone. I call him Chip because he reminds me of chocolate chip ice cream. He's really cute.

Day 12: Best Scene: Attack of the Clones

No video because I had a hell of time trying to find it, but here's the dialogue from my favorite scene of AOTC:


Anakin Skywalker: From the moment I met you, all those years ago, not a day has gone by when I haven't thought of you. And now that I'm with you again... I'm in agony. The closer I get to you, the worse it gets. The thought of not being with you... I can't breathe. I'm haunted by the kiss that you should never have given me. My heart is beating... hoping that kiss will not become a scar. You are in my very soul, tormenting me... what can I do? I will do anything you ask. If you are suffering as much as I am, please tell me.

Padmé Amidala: I can't... We can't... It's not possible.

Skywalker: Anything is possible, Padmé. Listen to me...

Amidala: No, you listen! We live in a real world; come back to it. You're studying to become a Jedi, I'm... I'm a senator. If you follow your thoughts through to conclusion, they will take us to a place we cannot go, regardless of the way we feel about each other.

Skywalker: Then you do feel something!

Amidala: I will not let you give up your future for me.

Skywalker: You're asking me to be rational. That is something that I know I cannot do. Believe me, I wish that I could just wish away my feelings, but I can't.

Amidala: I will not give into this.

Skywalker: Well, you know, it... it wouldn't have to be that way. We could keep it a secret.

Amidala: We'd be living a lie, one that we couldn't keep, even if we wanted to. I couldn't do that. Could you, Anakin? Could you live like that?

Skywalker: No. You're right. It would destroy us all.


This scene. I think it is heavy on the foreshadowing of their relationship. They both know what they're getting into and yet decide to do it anyway after all is said and done. I just don't think they could stay away from each other, you know?

Day 10: What are some really weird sit­u­a­tions your char­ac­ters have been in?

I didn't know how I was going to answer this, but then I remember a scene a wrote last year.

Henri (the king) comes to the Everart estate. Not to see the woman carrying his child and his mistress of three years, Marie Everart, but instead he comes to see her younger sister, Anna. Yeah...and you know I haven't written the situations where Bertrand (Henri's half brother and Marie's future husband) and Henri and Marie AND Anna are in the setting or whatever. Then there's the fact that Henri is also the uncle of his own kids because Marie married his brother. Yeah things get convoluted around these particular families.

I am almost finished TPM! I am really enjoying it you guys, I can't believe it took me this long to really love it. I wish I had went out and saw in 3-D. I'm debating going to see AOTC, but I know that I will have to break out of these four walls to see ROTS. And I'm taking my mother with me. Sorry Mom, you'll have to sit through it for a third time haha.

Day 11: Best Scene: The Phantom Menace



Now some of y'all know that TPM is probably my least favorite movie out of all six of them. But it does have some cute little moments like above when Anakin meets Padme. I like it because it's simple. They're basically kids in this scene and knowing how their relationships ends, it nice to look at the good times.

Day 9: How do you get ideas for your char­ac­ters? Describe the process of cre­at­ing them

It's sort of different for some characters. With Elisabeth (Generation C) she formed in my head long before her world or any of her relatives. With Chloe Parker (From Ashwood Girls) she formed in response to a prompt and she sort of took on her own life from there.

Like the first part of the process lately has been the names. I'll find names and throw them together. Some character's backstories are already there like with Elisbaeth, but others? I'm still coming up with backstories for some characters.

And lastly. I was on ONTD as always and someone posted a link to this webseries called The Most Popular Girls ever and omg you guys. I watched all 13 of those motherfucking episodes in like two hours. FUCK! I gut laughed a few times and I don't even know why.

Day 7: Most Powerful Quote

I don't think this quote shows up in any of the films. Rather it's from the EU and when I went searching for it, I found out it was from the novelization of Revenge of the Sith. I only skimmed that book like eight years ago, but this quote has stayed with me over the years.

I'm paraphrasing here but it is: Even the stars die out.

That quote kind of sums up Anakin for me. He tried so hard to protect those he loved, but they ended up hurt. Even though I don't agree completely with Yoda's words to him after he has the dream, I think they make sense. Everyone and everything must die one day. I think what Yoda was trying to get across is that you should enjoy your time with them, you know. But of course Anakin didn't listen and ended up fulfilling the thing he tried to put a stop to, so yeah.

Day 5: By age, who are your youngest /oldest char­ac­ters?

Well at current time (Maybe 1150 or so, it jumps back and forward), the youngest named characters are around 4 to 6 in TMC?

In Mari, there's Daniel's siblings around that same age.

As for the oldest? Elisabetta is in her 80s in the early '50s, so yeah she's the oldest at the moment.
