tricksters_queen: "pretty" does not mean "safe" - which most of Royo's work makes me think of (Royo)
Well, it's been a while. I've been busy, which is kind of hilarious given that I'm not working full time. :p

Happy May Day a little late! ::laughter:: Magic and mayhem, and I kind of missed out on Sunday... I was too busy being a nervous wreck.

I feel better now, though, which is good.

I'm hanging out with people this week, which is good. ::laughter:: A group hang out is definitely in order, as well as a friend who's in from out of town. I'm better than I was, but I'm still not at my best. I need full time work again. Even getting out to work a couple of days a week isn't really easing my conscience mind that much. I'm trying to delve into reading and writing, but that apparently only does so much. :p

On the other hand, I think I understand one of my characters better, which is good. I spent some time paying attention to him through another character's eyes (as the story being told is all through one pov), but it gave me a little more perspective on him, which is helpful. I like the guy, but like my main character, I don't agree with him... lol, even though he's rather right on target! My own perspective is skewed though, of course. ;)

I am sitting in the cafe, considering my next move for today. I have two new books to play with - the new Sookie Stackhouse book is out, as well as the 2nd book in the Kane Chronicles. ::laughter:: But I probably won't get to them for a bit, because I'm re-reading the last few Dresden books, and Game of Thrones. A friend of mine dropped off the series "Rome" for me to watch, too. I might be a bit slow on getting around to things, but then, I usually am.

Heading off for a bit...

I have been playing around in Jess's world because, well, Jessica Saunders talks a lot. And quite loudly. So, it's the "Puck's Interview" storyline, which I doubt I will ever publish, if I ever manage to publish anything. ::shrugs::

While I've been playing around in Jessica's world, I have learned an inordinate amount about one Alydrium di Kenthor. And, my, is he an interesting character! He kind of...fascinates me (don't tell Puck! ::laughter::). First of all, Lydri is of Mab's race and realm, not a denizen of Avalon. This puts me at a disadvantage in several ways because I don't have all the information on Mab's race that I do about Oberon's. Happily, he's apparently a little more talkative than most of Mab's people.

I'm learning all about certain customs and culture differences through him, and I've learned quite a bit about his base character as a person. His mind is...unique. Or, possibly, only unique to me because I don't really know how denizen's of Mab's realm think yet. Who knows.

Anyway. I want to learn more about him. ::laughter:: I'm kind of wanting to drop the writing I'm doing for Jessica and skip over to my little book of notes and write out character descriptions for Alydrium and Mave's other inner circle group, including Maeyavannah herself. Perhaps I could even try dipping into Mab's mind? Who knows what I might learn there...
tricksters_queen: Waxing poetic about love and pain - of which I have much of the former and little of the latter.  ::shrugs:: (save me)
Some lifetime, perhaps I will have the ability to concentrate on the things I should be doing instead of the world in my head. You know. If we're lucky. ::laughter::

I've reread the first two Fever series books. I'm in the middle of reading The Lost Hero right now. I've been writing a lot, but naturally, it's not what I should be working on. Instead, it's my Puck's Interview world, which is... just... ::sigh:: Jessica Saunders, you driven, ambitious bitch, I'd really appreciate it if you'd shut up for a while and let me write OBERON's story. Grar! ::laughter::

I actually rather like Jessica. And her friends. Naturally, I adore Puck. The trickster was supposed to be the focal point of the story, you know, giving smart-ass answers and being funny and such. Apparently, however, as much of a personality as the Puckster is, Jessica Saunders is quite a personality herself. The story has turned out to be, quite surprisingly as far as I'm concerned, about the human characters.

Perhaps I should have guessed as much when, for some inexplicable reason, I decided that the whole interview thing would be told from the first person pov of none other than Jessica herself. It was kind of necessary for the world set-up and such, but I didn't pay much attention, I guess. So I was a little surprised when it dawned on me that the human characters were the ones I was really paying attention to, and learning the most about. Truth be told, I suppose there's really not that much left for me to learn about Puck. He's been in my head too long to have that many surprises left. Which might actually explain my curiosity and genuine interest in learning about the humans involved. I've learned a bit about Maeyavannah and Alydrium di Kenthor, too, which has also been interesting. And hey, at least they're fae.

I don't think my brain is going to work on the story I intended for quite some time yet. If I had to hazzard a guess, I'd say that it will at least be the New Year before I manage it. ::laughter:: That's going to have to be okay.
