Today started out rough. I just couldn't get any inspiration. It feels like every day kind of starts out that way.

So I hopped over to oneword and grabbed their prompt, which was feud. I wrote up a short bit where Seth and Shui get into it, which I'll go ahead and share here since it's only 106 words.



It was always like this. One day they were the best of friends, the next day, Shui was so intolerable that Seth just wanted to punch him in the face. And on the worst days, Seth just couldn't resist the urge.

Blood flowed down Shui's face. For a minute, he grinned, licking the blood away like some kind of feral creature, eyes bright and shining, then he tensed, muscles coiled then releasing and he tackled Seth to the ground, arms flailing, throwing punches that alternately connected and missed in a frenzy of rage, mixed screaming and laughter pouring from his mouth in a cacophony of madness.

So then, I sat around and fucked off for awhile, cleaning off space on my hard drive to make room for some music that was recommended to me since Pandora wasn't giving me anything that was remotely helpful and my nano playlist was distracting (sometimes lyrics are really, really distracting to me when I'm trying to write) and I also started playing a downloaded copy of the new Final Fantasy game for DS (Four Heroes of Light). Now before you go lecturing me about downloading copies of games, [livejournal.com profile] lightningrapier actually has a legitimate copy of it that she's playing to review it right now for a website (she does website reviews) but after I spent like 3 hours leveling up her stupid characters yesterday while she caught up her word count, I kind of decided I wanted to play it, so I downloaded it. So it's not like we don't have a legitimate copy in the house, we just can't put two damn save files on it, which is retarded.

aaaaanyway.

@NaNoWordSprints did a ten minute sprint with no prompt, so I just used "ten minutes" as my prompt and finally wrote something about Aras, so I've done something about him. I'd like to try and do at least something with as many characters as possible. I know I'm focusing predominantly on the characters that are in the bin, because Isis is such an important character and if I can stay in the bin I can try to bring Daniel into the picture and as a result, bring Isis in (who I have written very little about. In fact, I've written almost zilch about her and even less about the dream walking or anything, but we'll get there, I hope). Anyway, a couple of characters from [livejournal.com profile] lightningrapier's The Legendary Age Trilogy (Specifically the third installment: The Final Reverie) (see [livejournal.com profile] roughestdraft & [livejournal.com profile] seventhhouse) made cameos in that section. That happens from time to time. There are characters in that series that have hopped from work to work and I expect them to show up in this piece as they've shown up in other works I've worked on, but these were not the ones I was expecting to poke their heads in. Oh well. Lou, you're a real pain in the ass, but I love you.

@NaNoWordSprints also finally did do a prompt in which we were to optionally use popcorn as a weapon. This is perfectly normal behavior for Shui, and he ended up chucking a bowl of popcorn at Scarlett, which got them into a full on fight and got both of them tranq'd. The Lady of the Manor makes an appearance in this scene, as does Nurse Lisa and Daniel. They're watching Alien. Daniel apparently likes this movie. Paul is also mentioned.

After that, Shui has a pretty vivid dream about the Waters of Chaos and his god form, followed by a dream in which he is Trogdor. When he wakes up, he has some serious reality issues and is pretty fucked up.

I cleared my word count for the day and then some, wrapping up at 11,671. This means that tomorrow I need to clear a minimum of 13,671 if I write 2k words.
