I finished Ys Origin! Or … rather, I finished it a couple of weeks ago, but had to keep it a secret because I had written a treat for it in Press Start and I wanted to be stealthy. But now that authors have been revealed, I can finally talk about it without tipping my recipient off! :) Please feel free to comment on how stealthy I am.

Ys Origin aka Days of Our Facts )

I have one more Ys game left to play, and then I really have played all the Ys games in English! That’s not bad considering that I really only started playing them in around April this year. I’ve really been on a Falcom roll of late, so I suppose it’s a good thing that I’m taking a break to do other publishers.

That brings me to 102 games left in my backlog! Next up, finishing off The Longest Journey to tidy up the lingering games, and then Virtue’s Last Reward and Valkyrie Profile!

Aside from squeaking in all those fics/ficlets/drabbles last night, I put on Dragonball, since it's been sitting here and I've wanted to revisit it~ *grins* So far, Boycritter seems to be enjoying it. And I haven't seen it uncensored, so this is fun~

I'll do some proper fic-announcement posts at some point soonish. Some of them are for some fairly obscure fandoms, alas? AO3's interface does not make for quick fic posting and deargods, I am still horrible with titles. *sighs*

I finally ordered the latest volume of Astray manga and I'm sort of dreading it. From what I've gathered of the premise, it's going to manage to insult a couple of my favorite characters by making them completely OoC and actually fart on the entire premise of SEED in the process. Good job. *sighs* And yet I'm buying it anyway, because.

I also ordered the new volume of UraBoku/The Betrayal Knows My Name. So glad it's coming out again~~ I got into it a couple of Yuletides ago to write something for [personal profile] roseargent and no regrets~

Aaaand, the Pilot Candidate/Candidate for Goddess box set which includes the OVA! \o/ So a little old, a little new all around. ^_^

It's been unseasonably warm here... I'm ready for it to be fall~

I finished Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia! I initially bought this because the art looked great and figured “why not”, and have been playing it in around trying to approve tags for Yuletide. 50 something hours later, I finally finished it and have fallen head over heels for it, and I now want to dive further into Fire Emblem.

I'm a Forsyth to be reckoned with! )

Next up, a ~mystery game~ that I played recently, and then plugging away at The Longest Journey. Also I should really start working on my bingo card.

All the fics, ficlets, and drabbles for [personal profile] luxken27's Summer Mini-Challenge are written! Because I'm ridiculous! Now, for the quickest bit of editing and posting known to the land~~

Go go go!

I didn't forget about [personal profile] luxken27's annual summer prompt tables, but I've just been so... flat that I couldn't even anything.

Tomorrow is the due date. I am going to be downright hellbent ridiculous determined.

TABLES! )

"Oh, I know just the menu to use for this... I can have them order..." *digs out fancy restaurant menu, starts perusing*

Ten minutes later...

"WAAAAIIIIT! This is supposed to be a short smutfic with minimal lead-up."

BUT FOOD.

*scribbles notes for longer epic foodporn fic to write later*

...

*sigh*

Well, I need to go back to it at some point and rework it into a list for this week, but I'm pretty confident in saying I didn't get most of my weekend to-do taken care of. ^^;; I did get a lot done in the bookroom, which was definitely one of the most important things. However, a lot of it involved unpacking and sorting books and now my bedroom is a disaster of bookpiles (whoops?). I ended up moving a couple of bookcases and the desk twice, because I had ~~different ideas, and then I had one more but ended up not doing it, because instead of trying to incorporate the cedar chest that's been floating around, I should see about parting with it. I don't use it, stuff gets piled on it, and like many pieces of furniture that came over here, it's not actually in very good shape. Well... I don't have to decide on anything today.

Basically, I have to keep reminding myself that not only can I be flexible, it's okay if I am. So if this layout isn't working in a few weeks, I can try something new.

Just unpacking and sorting, I've pulled out three books to go already. Well, for one, I read one chapter and immediately deposited it in the 'take to pagan shop' basket. Not my cuppa. I suspect this will happen more and more as I keep going, especially with reference books that are interesting but not the sorts of things I'll ever need to reference that often, or that seem impressively redundant (like the dozens of gardening books).

Other than that, words! I'm sort of trying for the impossible, lol. Wish me luck! (And words!)
