Been ages since I actually posted on here.

So, an update.

Well, since the beginning of the year, I got a job (minimum wage, middle of Edinburgh, doing web sales) then another job (£14k, Livingston, doing web development), so that front's not too bad.

I've failed at relationships utterly, so have given up on the idea, at least for now.

Still depressed, still on drugs, still up and down a fair bit.

Doing less LARPing than I was, but more tabletop. Thinking of getting back into LT. We're also looking at going down to DuD at some point, and we're having discussions about setting up a 40k LARP in Scotland (if you're interested, let me know).

Been going to Geas this last year and it's been good to get out of the house and meet people. May even try running a game next year - if I'm not still burnt out.

So, that's work, relationships and social life covered. Don't think I missed anything major...

A Letter

To every ST that I've made despair.
To every ST that I've made groan.
To every ST that I've made grin.
To every ST that I've confused.
To every ST that I've made double-take.
To every ST that's asked if I'm crazy.
To every ST that I haven't done this to.

Thank you, thank you all.

Thank you for putting up with the crazy, the insanity, the general chaos and my general quirks. Thank you for putting up with everyone else' too. Thanks for the great games that wouldn't exist without you.

Just in general, thank you.

- Yoda.

I have a few characters, well more than a few across all the venues. And I'm thinking of maybe not having so many.

The ones I'm truly thinking of dropping are my Mortals characters which dismays me for a number of reasons, but I don't get to play them, and there's no real place for Spook in the chronicle any more. I've also been finding it increasingly hard to play him of late when I have had the chance to.

The other characters I'm contemplating dropping are Just Tom - one of my Requiem secondaries, Ben - my other Requiem secondary and Tim - one of my Lost secondaries. Just Tom is an interesting character, but he's not got a lot to do. Much the same with Tim. The main problem with them is that I came up with the idea, and the sheet and then didn't actually put much thought into their goals, or aspirations. It's made things a bit.. lacking. Tim is getting to be a more interesting character, as he finds things to do, but I have other reasons for potentially retiring him as well. Just Tom is crazy (but not like Spook was) and that's a bit fun to play, but the lack of things to do is definitely affecting my enjoyment of playing him. Ben on the other hand has goals, but no drive and nothing really to do at games. Being a ghoul, Ben doesn't have a lot to do at court and that makes things less interesting for me.

So, supposing I remove the aforementioned characters from my repertoire, who does it leave me with?

William - Daeva Lancea Sanctum Mendicant/Painter - who I can't play locally

Nathan - Elodoth Blood Talon Cop

Henderson - Obrimos Free Council Student - also see [livejournal.com profile] henderson_ic
Taliesin (Tal) - Proximus Musician

Laine - Wizened Chatelaine Courtless Hotellier
Jerusalem - Fairest Dancer/Manikin Autumn Lord and Businessman - Glasgow (closed games)

Rocker - Wretched Cuprum Musician/Biker
Jamie - Ulgan Argentum Mythbuster

no one


Pending-Great-Deeds - Cliath Ragabash Shadowlord

I've been trying to get into the habit of writing fics more often. That said, if there's any of the above people would like to see more fics of, then let me know. Perfectly willing to take requests.

[Poll #1410859]

ETA: ANST Mortals is the position of Associate National Storyteller catering to the Mortals venue within the Isles of Darkness society (formerly Camarilla UK). The position has just gone up for an all-call (meaning they want people to apply to do the job) this morning. I've been the ANST Mortals Legacy (meaning I take over if something happens to the ANST Mortals [or they go on holiday]) for the past year.

On the one hand, it's something I've been thinking about doing for a little while. On the other, it's a serious commitment and I think I might have something else that'll take priority, but I can't comment on that at the moment, or even be sure if I'll be needed for that.

So, yeh.. just a bit of a big decision whether or not I go for it. I applied for it last year during the last all-call, and I'd been in the society 2/3 months at the time. Now, I have a few more responsibilities, and I think I might need to take care of things closer to home rather than look to the skies at the moment.
