And so it begins..

Posted in Almost Uncategorized on February 14, 2010 by The Raven

As I’m sure those looking at the blog have noticed, it has undergone a name change as well as a bit of a face lift. The blog changes aren’t done yet so keep checking back periodically to see what else I am doing. I’ll try to make Twitter updates when something major is changed so for those who DO follow me on Twitter be on the look out for that.

Also I started my FIRST full fledged Fan Fiction story last night. I’m pretty excited about it though I know someone will tease me about how they have ruined me. *eyes person in question*. But regardless it’s going to be a tricky story to write given what I have in mind. Needless to say it’s will involve a lot of researching and asking questions etc. But I look forward to it. The best part of writing for me is researching and gathering the right information so I can actually begin my writing process.

Heck I spent a good 3 months researching vampire mythology so I could begin writing my books. Don’t think that I’ll have to spend nearly that much time researching for this story however. Though all the talk about finding out the history of things has got me contemplating what someone suggested just recently in the RPG I play called Bloodletting. The person behind a character I was talking to suggested that I turn the story of my own character’s life into a book. Mainly because she has a very rough childhood that turns her into a Slayer, and an even bigger turn of events that makes her into the one thing she had always hated the most.. A vampire.

Oh.. Don’t let me forget.. This character was also born in the 1800s and was only just recently turned. Yay for magic! Haha.

Anyways.. Those are the updates so far. I’ll try to post a snippet of the character in here in a bit of an RP format (the one from the short story not the RPG) so you can get a feel for who she is before the story is finished.

Save Heroes.. Save the World

Posted in Almost Uncategorized, Random Musings, Thoughts for the Day on February 9, 2010 by The Raven

Or at least this is what I keep reading on my Twitter account *grins*.

For anyone who knows me you know that I was never really that big a fan of the show ‘Heroes’ and it was mainly because of the constant brooding of the cheerleader. I’m sorry but my idea of a fun time wasn’t sitting for an hour and watching some chick scowl for most of that time. However.. Things change.. And you meet people who are into the show and kind of talk you into giving it a second chance.

Now.. I’ve become a fan of one of the actors of the series. And while watching it and knowing a bit about the character he plays to start with, I was thinking. Okay.. Maybe this won’t be SO bad after all. Course I’m sitting there around Thanksgiving time and was watching a special episode and I’m watching the credits roll by.. And I see the name “Ray Park”. Instantly a “HOLY CRAP” moment happened and needless to say the show just gained a few billion points in awesomeness.

So now I have two of my favorite actors in that one show. Ray Park and Zachary Quinto. So now I’m hooked. I’ll admit it.. You have the epically evil Sylar (or well I guess he was epically evil, right now I’m not so sure) and then you have Edgar who I’ve really not seen too much in the episodes I’ve watched, but still.. I’ve been on Twitter a lot lately and I see this whole #saveheroes posts going around which in a way makes me think.. ‘Uh oh.. Don’t tell me I just got into this show and they are going to cancel it, or it’s up for seeing if it’ll be renewed or not.’

So I’ve been on a kick to help (though it likely won’t be a lot) to try and get people to help with ‘saving Heroes’. There’s been a petition started and their goal is to have 1,000,000 signatures to help with the cause. So what I am going to do here is post the link in my blog and hope that some of my readers who happen to drop by will sign it and pass it on to people who love the show.

It only really takes a second to sign it and you can log into the petition via your Twitter account if you have one. So it’s pretty simple to do.

Save Heroes, Save the World Petition

P.S: Figured since I posted this I’d stick with the spirit and add a little extra flare. Enjoy :D.

Just realized..

Hoooooooooooly shyte! G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra comes out Friday! Yes, FRIDAY! As in this FRIDAY! Needless to say this Friday is going to kick maximus butimus. Why? Well aside from the G.I. Joe news which just happens to have my favorite Sith Lord Darth Maul- aka Ray Parks- playing Snake Eyes, the next season of one of my favorite shows- Psych- is starting back up.

Oh yeah, if one day could rock any harder than the rest… It would be this Friday.
