So between random internet connection outages, power outages, and all around laziness, I didn’t get to make the promised entry. I hope you all forgive me.

Despite all that time away from posting on LJ, there really hasn’t been much in the way of interesting things that have gone on in my personal life. The holidays went as smoothly as they often do around here. My brother came home from college to visit us for a few weeks, which was surprisingly nice. I never thought that I’d miss that little bugger and his liveliness so much. Without him around, my family and I become rather boring individuals.

Speaking of him, near the end of his stay he walked over to me while I was busy with something on the computer and proudly announced that he played his first game of D&D at college. He was practically beaming, and I had to keep myself from laughing at him. Why? Because this same boy is quite conservative and religious (even the college he’s attending is a rather prominent Christian one) and several years previous when I told him that I’d given Dungeons and Dragons a try (albeit a pretty bastardized version) he was pretty weirded out. I think it was because he believed all those rumours about it being a “demonic” game, although probably not to the hilariously idiotic extent of Jack Chick.

So yeah, I was pretty amused by my brother’s revelation that not only was it not such a bad game after all, but he actually enjoyed it..

As a result of that talk, I got a bit nostalgic and decided to go and look up the different D&D races and monsters, just to see how in-depth the creators went into them (and, admittedly, to look at the pictures :B). As I’m going through them I come across the Thri-Kreen, a race that reminds me of a brownish and bipedal version of the Thranx. In the appearance department, at least. On a whim, I look them up on Wikipedia to see if they were a reference/nod to the Thranx, and guess what I find? Apparently Star Control’s own Paul Reiche III came up with them. :O It seems that I just can’t escape the grip of SC2, even when I look into other fandoms. Not that I’d want to, but you know what I mean.

As a side note, I really hate it when fantasy and sci-fi canons give humanoid/mammalian breasts to beings that should not have them. Also, notice how in the second example the male is much more monstrous and lizard/serpent-like while the female looks like a very skinny human with some vague lizard facial features. Yeah.

My birthday (Jan. 23rd) came and went without much fuss, which is fine. I’ve never been one for birthday parties or celebrations or anything. There was a bit of a happy coincidence, though: alanahikarichan started playing The Captain over at damned. It gave me a chuckle, anyway. Now to start stalking reading about his antics and see what happens when he finds out that ZEX is there. >3

Got a new job, finally. That’s where I am now, in fact. It’s pretty cool. The only drawback is that I get home quite late and I’m usually too tired to read much from The Light-years Beneath My Feet. Damn. It looks like I’m going to have to put some time aside on the weekends to read it.

I have something else to write about, but I’ll have to edit it in when I get home. It's a bit on the, shall we say, NSFW side.

EDIT:

So I've found it. By accident, actually, which just further proves my theory that if I ever want to find something, the best thing for me to do is not look for it.

But anyway, here it is: Four 10 second clips of the only completely consentual tentacle sex scene from a commercially available hentai series that I've ever seen. I don't think I have to tell any of you how rare this is. The demon/alien/whatever is even concerned about his partner and asks if she's scared, implying that he'll stop if she wants him to! :O This just...blows my mind.

Maybe there’s an alien who the player might think was friendly at first, but was actually trying to sabotage the project because they want to cripple humanity’s galactic power and take the resources for their own people? Something like that. Or, yeah, a jealous scientific rival or just plain rumours that turn out to be false.

Oooooo, that could be interesting! Yeah. :D I mean, there'd be a lot of people you could talk to--and most of them would have either good advice, neutral advice, or just commentary--so there could be more than one who'd give dangerous advice.

Hey, it’d be a great way to make some spare cash to get equipment upgrades with! The alternate ending is a good idea too. >3

Oh hey, yeah! :D I wasn't thinking of what you'd use the money for... I guess there would be things other than items to use on the tentacle monsters. But I think you'd start out with enough money to buy anything you needed, and you'd already have most of the equipment you'd need (you're an expert, after all). So the sidequest would be optional. Let's see... like, you could buy a video recorder to replace your normal camera! And then be able to access the videos later. XD (If you took photos, you'd get a semi-OOC photo album, like with Sims 2 only not exactly. More just a pile of photos in your inventory you could sort through at any point. (If you sold them, you'd be selling duplicates, of course.))

Oooo, yes! And an ending where you find out that the planet has sentient tentacled aliens on it and after your work is done you decide to stay with them and “have some fun”.

...Oh, wonderful. XD Let's see, how would you get that one... finding a secret area?

I would play it and play it and play it and ~<3
