Title: Calculations
Words: 4422
Challenge: The revisionist challenge!
Notes: Yes, this is my original world, polished up significantly. Angeline and Zaniel were the cousins of one of my Mary Sue main characters. Robert is the brother of another. Zaniel is responsible for the original demise of this story - he kept strolling in unannounced, stealing every scene he was in and presenting my heroes with awkward ethical dilemmas. He hasn't changed much - this story wasn't even supposed to be about him ;)
There will probably be two or three parts to this - it keeps growing!
Be warned - clich├ęs and romance!

Happy Saturday ^_^

Happy Birthday, my dear! I hope you've had a lovely day!

I went to a lot of very dull lectures this week. As sleeping in lectures is frightfully rude, I wrote this to keep myself awake (it entertained the people reading over my shoulder too ^_^).

Title: Hostilities
Words: 1462
Prompt: hostile
Notes: Caria and Jerrioh are Tad and Istellon's siblings. Caria is second oldest, after Tad, and Jerrioh is the fourth.

This is the only place the plant grows. How was I supposed to know it was infested with undead? )

Oh, my, that website is pretty. The Oxford shots look pretty good too.

So, currently I'm a spider... O_o Let's see how long that lasts.

Oh, and happy Saturday all ^_^ I am alive, have finished my first school placement and now have a week of lectures before I go off to my final placement. The end is in sight ^_^

ETA: And Tiger and Ocelot played too.

Yes! I wrote something! It is admittedly a wee bit cheesy and has silly names in it, but that's because it was done for a practice reading exam for my Year Nines (who won't appreciate it). It also had to fit onto a side of A4 *eye-roll* I've also done a newspaper report and a page from a history textbook on the same events, but they'd take too long to htmlise. I thought it might entertain you guys, in all its silliness.

Happy Almost-Tuesday, all ^_^ How're you all? Did everyone who needed to remember that the clocks changed?

One of the things I find most frustrating (and sometimes most rewarding) about writing is the story that won't get off the ground. For the last couple of weeks I've been struggling with a story about Lynx and Lia during their early years in the Ninth Legion. I've written out a careful and detailed plan, and sketched out the background information. On the surface, it seems to have all the ingredients a short story needs - a problem to be overcome, fun worldbuilding, Lyn and Lia being snarky and Saisorhi having porridge fights. Unfortunately, it's just not working.

So I tried to work out why )

Apologies all, but I'm currently battling with an essay deadline and a uncooperative set of characters. Can someone do this weekend's [ profile] talechasing round-up? It will probably only be a diddy one again.

Snow ^_^

There are some advantages to getting up early. After my mentor rang me at twenty to seven to say school was cancelled, I couldn't get back to sleep, so I had some breakfast and went for a walk through the snow. Heavy snow is a rarity in the UK these days (blame global warming), and everyone I saw was wildly excited - there were undergrads having snowball fights in their pyjamas as I left.

These guys, protesting on the steps of the Martyrs' Memorial, obviously also had some strong opinions about the environment...

Walking in a winter wonderland... )

How're the rest of you today? Anyone else got exciting weather?

*snaffled from [ profile] alintaflame:

Here is what I want you to do, give me an object, a physical attribute or item of clothing and either a verb or an adjective. I will write you a drabble (story in 100 words) containing each of these three things. I will post each drabble as a full journal post.

for example:
A box (object), red hair (physical attribute), freezing (adjective)

Prompt me! ^_^

Yesterday Mum and I took my cousin Elysia on her birthday outing. We went to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew. Although it's not the best time of year to see the gardens, Mum and I still found plenty of interest, and she enjoyed the temperate house (palm trees!) and the skating rink outside it.

For me, the highlight was the Holly Walk, a long stretch of pathway flanked by different varieties of holly, most of which were heavily berried. Inevitably, I took a fair few pictures, some of which I've turned into seasonal icons. Feel free to steal/modify etc - I just thought this was a fun way to show off a whole range of varieties without spamming you with big pictures.

The Holly bears a berry as red as any blood )

Happy Sunday

Folks with paid accounts - after the downtime earlier in November, LJ are offering to add a week's paid time to active paid accounts. Information here
rosiphelee: (Lynx and Lia)
Eek! I just looked at the date - it's the 6th October, which means I've been writing for 13 years (ie, longer than my Year Sevens have been alive -_-)

In celebration, give me drabble prompts! (And yes, Shaiel, I'll even take one of your challenges ^_^) As many as you like (I'm going to regret that...)
rosiphelee: (Arcady Eyes)
And more ^_^ Look what happens when I'm bored at work. I'm just beginning to get my feel for these characters back. Expect more, especially as this is Arcadian weather. For information, the little conversation between them in the middle is based on their knowledge that you can't kill a ringed Lord - they just get up again after a few minutes (unringed, it's more complicated).

Title: The Music Room
Words: 2173 (*blinks* Wow. Didn't feel that much when I was writing)
Prompt: Music box
Summary: The Lords of Fire, before the Lords fall. About as sweet and fluffy as Arcady pieces get.

They had been taught the waltz, amongst the mass of arcane knowledge their tutors deemed essential )

Happy Tuesday ^_^

Hmm, only two I haven't finished now - flare is turning into a major piece and music box is on my work machine (more Arcady!)

Title: Waterfall
Words: 671
Prompt: falling
Summary: The crew of the Ardent Tamarisk find a waterfall. Silly sweet.

And more. I started this one before I wrote Return with no idea what was going on, but a vague feeling it might be part of something bigger. Return then used the same themes and kind of invalidated this a little. It only took a sentence to finish, thouhg, and it works in its own right, so I thought I'd share.

Title: Puppetry
Words: 942
Prompt: west
Summary: Someone's playing games. Late League era - c. 15000 AD

The city lay below her. )
