What a fucking insane past few weeks I've been having, holy shit. It's a wonder I haven't completely pickled my liver in vodka yet. :stare:

It all started when my parents hydroplaned off the highway two Sundays ago. They're okay, but Jesus H. Christ on rollerblades that was a stressful thing to find out...on Facebook, no less. I was especially pissed when all of these fucking relatives came out of the woodwork commenting "oh, God was with you!!"

No, there was no magic fucking sky-being involved. God didn't grab the wheel and land them safely in the grass, it was all my dad's driving skills. I may be religious but yeesh, give my dad some credit instead of pinning it on God. :grump:

Then, two days later, I found out that a friend of mine died of epilepsy complications.

And then, my parents came to visit me that weekend, where my mom informed me that she had lost her job!

So yeah, I'm a very displeased, cranky Loon now.

TL;DR: Fuck you you can read it.
Chapter One

Chapter Two

Chapter Three

Chapter Four

Chapter Five and Epilogue

And now, the sequel no one wanted...




I haven't been here for a while, since I've been a busy bee with my life.

I started tinkering with computers and now make mods for Skyrim.

I survived sophomore year of college.

I'm turning twenty-one in a few weeks.

I converted religions.

I hurt my back again, and this election is turning my hair grey, but I'm finally starting to figure this whole "adulthood" thing out.

Today was my first day of junior year. I live alone (still) and share a bathroom with three other girls, all of whom I'm friends with. I'm still a creative writing major, and I'm still a nervous wreck. I finally stopped worrying about my ex-roommate, and started to look back on the whole ordeal as a funny thing...

...and then I get into my writing composition class this afternoon, and guess who's there?

Crazy Psychobitch Ex-Roommate. :stare:

Crazy Psychobitch Ex-Roommate, who claimed that I was lying about being disabled.

Crazy Psychobitch Ex-Roommate, who wanted me to wash my dishes every day, regardless if they had been used or not.

Crazy Psychobitch Ex-Roommate, who caused me to spiral backwards into the depths of my severe OCD and left me deathly afraid of living with other people.

Crazy Psychobitch Ex-Roommate, who I might have to work with.

All.

Fucking.

Semester.

:nuu:

I've already e-mailed my professor about this, so now I'm sitting on her reply. Only time will tell how this plays out. I hope it's for the better.

So I finally got around to putting my actual first name on here. I've gone by my pseudonym for a while on here because I'm a paranoid fuck, but...well, I've gotten a bit better about that, ha.

I'm twenty years old, extremely neurotic, and a writer. I seem like an egotistical jackass but I'm actually not, I just pretend to be so I feel better about myself. I enjoy doing stupid shit for other's amusement, video games, and playing with my babies (cats, in case you were wondering). I also collect schoolbooks from the 1800s.

I'm in my third year of studying for a degree in Creative Writing and will probably go into editing, but my dream job is to be a stand-up comedian. I'm also thinking about minoring in IT because I spend a lot of time screaming at technology. Windows XP was the shit and Windows 10 is the devil.

I've been writing Elder Scrolls fanfiction as of late, because I don't have the time to commit to something of my own at this time. I also want to save any ideas I get for NaNoWriMo, which I have won six years in a row.

I'm extremely skilled at knitting and crocheting, which I do a lot in my free time since I have a lot of nervous energy. I make very cute baby hats and can churn a bunch out in one day as long as I don't have any cuts on my fingers.

I also draw on occasion, but I'm not all that good at it. I'm actually terrible at it. I mostly do it to get a feel for what my characters look like or if I'm stuck in a boring class.

I speak fluent English and German, enough Russian to not get shot, and am learning Finnish.

I'm obsessed with the Elder Scrolls series and the Eurovision Song Contest. I own all five games from The Elder Scrolls, mostly playing Skyrim and Morrowind. Skyrim is my favorite since it was the one I started with and the graphics don't look like potatoes (well, kind of...I play on a bootcamped Mac so the graphics are actually terrible).

As for the Eurovision Song Contest...well, let's just say that I skipped my senior prom to watch it instead and I got so worked up over Denmark winning in 2013 that I actually fell out of my chair. I can sense people talking about Eurovision from up to six miles away in good weather conditions.

I make mods for Skyrim in my free time. Hit me up if you want links to download locations.

Doctor Vervaard (2,500)

The doctor aboard the CCCP-91 and childhood friend of Ilmestyskirja and Zjevení. Though normally a nervous individual, she has her odd quirks that seem to come out of nowhere. She is extremely interested in dissecting things and will jump at any chance she gets to do so. Other than that, she is a skilled doctor. She has a large collection of scrubs and lab coats featuring fun, colorful patterns.

######

I went for broke and wrote 11,000 words in two days. Now I'm ahead of schedule. LETS DO THIS!

Character of the Day + GIF:

Rista Stell (22)

Another friend of Aiji's. She isn't as superstitious as Susa, but is still just as cautious. She is extremely intelligent when it comes to tracking and other survival skills, but has poor reading comprehension. She is also extremely good at horseback riding, archery, and archery while on horseback. She has a lot of burn scars on her face due to improper protection from the sun and a crooked nose that makes her voice very nasally.

Character of the Day + GIF:

Etzi Kovacas (24)

One of Aiji's best friends. She has a hard time taking things seriously, which balances out Susa's superstition and Rista's caution. She is large for her kind, standing at 5'9" and extremely muscular. She has a healthy sense of humor even in terrible situations and expresses concern for others, even if they're different.

######

The sudden jump in word count is the result of me not sleeping for roughly two days. I powered through from 4 pm on the 8th all the way to 1 am on the 10th. I eventually passed out in the middle of working at my desk. The things I do to myself during this month...

First Commander Zjevení (2,501)

Captain Ilmestyskirja's playful, fun-loving second-in-command. Much unlike the captain, Zjevení is unafraid of failure and sometimes even embraces it. She is less intimidating than Ilmestyskirja and seems to not take things seriously, but equally capable of taking charge when it is required. She was childhood friends with both Captain Ilmestyskirja and Doctor Vervaard, a close bond that the three still share to this day. Zjevení is a skilled sharpshooter.

The captain of the CCCP-91. She's over seven feet tall and can easily snap someone's arm. Deeply afraid of failure. Has a soft spot for Nadezhda, the Lost Cosmonaut, and has mentored her for several years.

######

I've been in a slump for the past few days due to illness, medication not working, and righteous fury because I learned that my little brother is being bullied at school.

Then I realized that I'm a Creative Writing major and can do this. I added my writing assignments in my story so that all homework I have to do will be adding to my word count, and I jumped several thousand words in one day. GO ME!

Quote of the Day:

"If its been at least five hundred years since a sky explosion that brought ice, then I'm pretty sure it's not an omen." Etzi chimed in, rolling her bright green eyes that were somehow visible despite all of the thick fur that surrounded her face. "Besides, sky explosions mean other things. Maybe it's the Stranger. Maybe it's just some big rock. Only way to find out is to go investigate." - Etzi Kovacas, Chapter Two

Character of the Day + GIF:

Lieutenant Nadezhda "Nadya" Leontiyevna Korzhakova (85)

Nadezhda is a brilliant computer programmer and former air force pilot from Kazakhstan. She was one of five children of a Soviet government official and was very close with her two older brothers. In 1959, she became the first human in space, as well as the first human to be lost in space. She was picked up by aliens who tried to return her to Earth, but by then she had already been declared dead from a "training accident." She has spent the past sixty-something years with the aliens, a medical fuckup resulting in her not physically aging past 29. Her hobbies include working with computers and knitting. She was competent at horseback riding when she was young and attended the Moscow Aviation Institute before joining the Soviet air force and becoming a cosmonaut.

######

I would have written more yesterday, since all of my classes for the day were cancelled, but that evening one of my friend grabbed me and we went on an adventure to try and find the aurora borealis that were forecasted over our area. We drove for two hours in the middle of bumfuck nowhere Pennsylvania and found nothing. I am not impressed.

An awkward woman who grew up hiding in the shadow of her older sister, Nessa struggles greatly when she becomes the center of attention. She prefers to be left alone with her hobbies. She enjoys playing with electricity, spending time with her sister in the garden, and building things. Nessa is very set in her ways, and as a result is very resistant to change.
