Hey, Wallace! Good morning, friend! It's like 6am over there, I think, so you're probably sleeping but anyway. It's a relief to hear I didn't offend the first person to talk to me on this site ^^ I'll just be studying, so send me a message whenever you want.
Also, do you know what's Castle's chinese name? I have to search by chinese names on the website where I usually watch my shows. If not, what site do you usually watch Castle?
By the way, I do play Assasin's Creed. T'was introduced to me by my brother, who also got me started on Grimm... who's also college-ageish and lives in China. What a coincidence! ^^ He doesn't live in Dalian, but I don't suppose you know him?
FIrstly, next time you type a show's title, try using the Italicized form. They were always used to avoid confusions between show titles and names.
And no, you didn't offend me. At all. So don't worry about that. How's your finals?
The Chinese name of the show Castle is "灵书妙探". It's about a famous writer following a police detective for his new book ideas, while providing unorthodox assistance to solve various crime cases. The overall storyline focuses on two parts - one is on the relationship between the writer and the detective, the other is on the detective's mother's unsolved murder case. It's a crime drama series with a, maybe... *30 degree*d comedy (?). Try searching for Youku - it's a Chinese version of YouTube, which, I presume, is also available on your end? Try searching them on Wikipedia for details. If you don't enjoy the buffering... Maybe you can try downloading them.
And about your brother... I don't believe I had the pleasure of meeting him. I'd really like to, someday.
You really played AC? Speak to me your favourite character. Altaïr? Ezio? Connor? Desmond? Or others?
By the way, I really envy you. You have an older brother, and I'm more like a lone kid.
And may I have the honor of having your name? You got mine.
Hello! I managed to find it just now and I just finished the first episode of Castle ^^ I love it, gosh. It's a lot like NBC's Hannibal (do you watch that?), but with huge amounts more humour. I'm about to start episode 2 right now. So far I am in love with the conversations between Castle and Beckett; I'm going to assume they're the "America's Favourite Couple"? I can really see why!
I rarely meet my brother, maybe a week or two a year, since he's a lot older than me and married and lives in China. I was pretty little when he showed me AC; I think the second one had just come out.
I don't remember all that much, but I remember liking Ezio a lot, and being really horrified when his brothers and dad(?) got hanged. Fuzzy on the details. I was so bad at the missions though, little me just liked going around stabbing people with the hidden blades.
Super responsible of my brother to show a kid a game like that. ^^ He showed me Grimm a couple years back too.
It's hilarious now that I think back: I was terrified of the Wesen, good lord. I don't think I slept for a couple days. Definitely don't regret watching it though. Like I said, my brother and I don't really meet a lot, but he's hella rad and he shows me the coolest things.
Pfft, having a sibling also means having fights and disagreements and all that, though. What about you, no siblings? Or just no older siblings?
And what do you think about AC? I agree the vambrace was probably inspired by it somehow. I remember a debate somewhere that the whole Grimm storyline is actually kind of similar to the one in AC.
As for my name, you know it, don't you? ^^ It's Annie Shi (石安琦). Just noticed, my chinese given name is one letter off from yours, whoop whoop.
石安琦, Really? You sure your parents didn't steal my name's patent? Just kidding. ^_^
Got no siblings. No direct ones, anyway. Would have liked one, though.The only one I got is a cousin on my mother's side. Don't talk much now. He's growing up... fast.
I don't watch Hannibal. Not really interested much. Castle was more of a romance-sided. Check my profile, you'll see what kind of genres I like of the shows I'm pursuing. Check about Castle Wiki's detailed data on these characters, and their protrayers' comments. Especially, on Nathan Fillon's comments of Richard Castle.
I like the AC's double blades, the Sword of Altaïr, the Armor of Altaïr (so beautiful in design), the Dagger of Brutus, and the smoke bomb was pretty useful, too. And I like to have my character's equipment fully upgraded before taking the final. Like for Ezio in AC2, I'll have him equipped with the Armor of Altaïr and the Sword of Altaïr, the most powerful of them all. And like I said, at least one of the creators of Grimm definitely played AC.
Whoops, I fell asleep last night before I could see your reply. Finals end tomorrow, though, so I'm pretty dang sure I can finish at least five episodes of Castle after them!
I'll be avoiding the Castle wiki, for the moment, however! Don't want to spoil anything for myself.
Pfthaha, perhaps my parents did, it's a small world.
Yeah, I have like dozens of cousins that I don't know very well. I'm sorry about your growing distant from your cousin, though; sometimes friends can be closer than family.
As aforementioned, I haven't played a lot of AC for since 4 (5?) years ago, and I was a kid, so I'm not the best person to discuss this with... ><; I remember the double blades though, they were very good to stab people with.
The armour was too complicated for me to understand at the time, though I remember my brother switching them around and asking me which one I'd liked most. It was cool. *is really sorry that this is all I have to offer on the subject >///<*
It'd be super if the writers of Grimm did play AC, though. AC's storyline was a remarkably strong one, and I'd love to see what it might inspire in these already-brilliant writers.
Er... I must be missing something, because I don't see anything on your profile... 'M still getting used to the whole wikia interface. But yeah, if you're more interested in romantic genres, Hannibal - along with most of the shows I watch, in fact - is definitely not the show for you!
I'm curious, though, now; what do you like about Grimm?
Because there's some romance in here but it's certainly not a large percentage. All I know for sure is that you firmly believe in Nick's humanity. ^^ And you may very well be right. I finished reading The Icy Touch today, and Nick certainly doesn't seem anywhere near Endezeichen.
Personally, Monroe's and Nick's relationship drew me into the show, and the absolutely fascinating characters kept me around. ^^
How about you? Is Grimm up in your favorite-shows list, or is it just something you casually watch sometimes? You seem pretty dang well-versed in it, though. Who's your favorite character?
You played AC when you were 4 or 5?! I don't even know jack about computer when I was at that age, and I haven't played AC until I was... 17! First I thought it was boring, all those viewpoints, all those missions... but later I find it quite intriguing.
I'm sure at least one of the writers must have played AC. There's no way for all this story to be so proximate to the game features of AC series to be a coincidence, for all I know. Check out those episodes which Juliette merge herself into her memory, remember those? Don't you just wanna whisper to your self "Synchronizing Rank 3 Memory... Memory Synchronized. Reconstructing..." when those scenes shows up? That's very AC-like to me. It's like Desmond reconstructing his ancestors' memory!
I re-edited my personal page on Grimm Wiki. You should be able to see it now. My mistake. I edited them at Wikia Central last time.
What I enjoyed about Grimm?
Let's see... Nick and Monroe's bromances... Hank and Juliette made the rite of passage into Kehrseite-Schlich-Kennen and were included into the Scooby Gang... Nick and Juliette's paramour relationship keeps going up... same goes for Monroe and Rosalee... Oh! The Key! Yeah, Nick's Key. The Key to unlock something important, something powerful... I wonder what that can be. Plus, I like to see how things would turn out between Nick and Juliette and Monroe and Rosalee.
I like Monroe very much. He's really cute. I remember calling him a "cute cub" once... he's not like those werewolves freaks we knew. He's not vicious and mean, he's nice and brave and courageous.
Grimm is definitely on my Fav Show list. I'm following it real-time. I like Nick better, no doubt. And I was right, wasn't I? He's not falling into his ancestors' dark pit. He's fair, just, and he's just devilishly handsome. He stays his blade before the innocent, and he always take the wesen criminals alive if he can. Scared the hell out of some wesen, for sure; Bud especially. And he has this mysterious key... I like to see how that would turn out.
Try to watch Castle for a bit. Five-and-a-half seasons have aired, and things just gets interesting by each episode. And I'm still waiting to *cream* ya. ^_^
And hey... I enjoyed chatting with you. Good luck to your finals. 回头见.
Oh goodness, no, I meant I played AC 4 or 5 years ago, when I was about eleven. Imagine a four-year-old kid playing a game where you run around stabbing people!
Now that you mention it, I do see the similarities! Oh dear, Grimm writers, what's going to be next - is Nick going to Italy and jumping off towers into haystacks?
It's super that you like Grimm (maybe almost as much as me, hahaha). I was worried I'd be boring you by talking about it.
Monroe's definitely my favourite too; he's just so awkward and sincere, gosh. Most deserving of the title "cute cub". ^^ Also "The Scooby Gang"! That should totally be the team's official name, haha. It's been pretty darn long since they mentioned the key, though...
Don't speak too soon, old fella! I might rout you, instead. Just need to finish at least one season first!
I'm glad you updated your profile page! Oh my, a reader, a writer, AND a romantic chap, are you? I think I'm going to swoon. ^^ Have you read the Grimm spin-off novels?
Also, when you say you like writing, do you mean in English? You're certainly fantastic at it. It sounds like what you like doing is fanfiction. I'm not sure if that's a popular thing in China, but it certainly is here.
It'd be cool if we could RP someday, maybe for Grimm or even Castle.
I've got my literature final tomorrow, on Macbeth, so I'll gladly take that good luck - I'll need it! ^^ I enjoy chatting with you too, a lot. There's not a lot of people in real life I can speak to so freely about shows and stuff.
Nah, "Scooby Gang" was the unofficial name of them. I usually go for the term "Grimm Task Force", because of the, you know, the spearhead stuff on wesen.
I haven't read the spin-off novel yet. Maybe someday.
And to be honest, I am not an official writer. I just make stories out of my head. A piece of music or a picture could start a chain reaction in my 10-year-old-like brain. Work better if they have a memory extractor with an imaging device.
You are right. It is fanfiction. I don't really know about Chinese fanfiction-ing in China - I don't watch Chinese shows enough to know if that's popular.
For now, I have made stories out of raw materials from...
Once Upon a Time
Under the Dome
Silver Linings Playbook
These stories centered around this word: Architect. Which is the main protagonist of my stories. He's the top man, directs orders to all and under direct orders onlyfrom *me*. He doesn't have an appearance or a real name. I don't want to make him sound or look common, for he's not, or so I said. Best appearance I can create him is like a flash of pure white light. He doesn't really show up in public, and even if he does, we won't be able to recognize him due to his disguise. He shows interest in particular characters and often deploys his troops (usually one or two members) to keep an eye on them. They are hidden from public eyes because they always perch on the farthest and highest point with the perfect, clear view. their standard issue is a very-long-ranged sniper rifle with a black-ray high-definition recorder scope, capable of a precision strike from the moon orbit. (Okay, I'm chattering again. But if you want to hear more; ask, and I'll tell)
Somehow I feel like I'm experiencing schizophrenia, except I am totally in control and there's no blackout periods or any secondary characters inside me. I create characters, and sometimes submerge myself in them, like I was talking to them or as them, like role plays, but I fully acknowledge that they weren't there. I feel like I'm like a mixture of Rick in Castle, with a bit of Dr. Pierce from Perception.
RP... You mean role-play? Sure. I can be Hitler-wesen and you can be a siegbarste. ^_^ <snicker>
Consider me a person "in real life I can speak to so freely about shows and stuff".
Well crap. There's a name for this? Schizophrenia.
I've always made up stories centered around this one girl. She's had many names, currently it's Eira, and if I'm completely honest, she's based off what I want myself to be. She's strong, witty, and I talk through her in my head to the other characters, when I'm alone. (I sound crazy, oh my god.)
I know Eira's not real, though, that none of the characters are real, but it's just so satisfying to live in so many other worlds. I don't blackout, I don't lose control, but I know it's not normal to pretend that you're interacting with fictional characters. I like the way you put it; I submerge myself in them.
I sometimes just admire how staggering it is that we can literally create infinite worlds, characters, in our own heads. We can control universes. As many as we can think of. And hell if I don't indulge myself in these creations.
At the moment, I'm writing Eira as a young Endezeichen Grimm who's devastated by all the horrible things she's done, all the blood on her hands. She meets and spares Monroe, and realises that there is redemption, even if she's done terrible things in the past. (I'm rambling too, darnit)
Goddamn, I'd love to hear more of your story. Continue, please, if you don't mind. This is amazing, this understanding that someone is making stories about their own characters, someone else is making worlds and I'm not alone.
Architect sounds like a dapper guy; I'd love to hear more about him.
I- I've never shared this much with anyone before. Look at me, spilling everything out in a stupid ramble. I'm sorry if I've weirded you out. I wouldn't blame you if you turned and ran as fast as you could from me; if I've crossed a line into crazy.
But heck, it feels fucking amazing to put all this in words and know someone's listening. Truly, truly, thank you.
P.S. Oh my god, I laughed so hard. RP (yes, role-play) means a collaborative writing, where you write one paragraph, then I continue, then you again, and we see where the story goes. But your idea sounds fantastic too: ANNIE SMASH PUNY HITLER-WESEN INTO PULP!
Oh my god. You just shared your secret to a guy you hardly knew.
I love to discuss these with you, but I always thought... what if it wasn't *me*? What if *I* am some other lying jerks hoping to have their victims jump right into their traps? It's a good thing I'm one of the silly, good ones.
Your character's Eira? At least you gave her a name. Mine doesn't have one.
"Architect" was just a call sign. I can tell you these: Architect is created to be the only true perfect being in all the universes. He's... not-knowing-how-old age, for he's immortal. To me, it wasn't God who created worlds, "God"s were call sign for his maintenance staff, who do repair and restoration works on worlds Architect created so He can stay in shadows unseen (I cannot make a book out of it because of this ^_^).
His abilities was made out of all the fictional abilities together. I can't say all of them, that would take years to list. But the most notable ones were like Blink/Teleport, and Mind-view/Telapathy.
He's got armies - top elite kind, and the spearhead of them were two: The Builders, which measures the necessary elements viable for inhabitable planets' creation; and the Recyclers, which creates civilizations and societies. He monitors all His experiments, evaluating the full-fledged ones, which He can release monitoring control and allow them to grow independently; and the failed ones, which He would order a civilization recycling with His Recycler Fleet for raw materials to create a new Recycler. And if situation went bad enough, he would order a full deconstruction: A civ-rcy, and then order His Builder Fleet to deconstrust that planet for raw materials for a new Builder. Experiments such as the world of Matrix, an earlier subject, which was proved a failure. A full deconstruction order was issued on that. The world of the Lord of the Rings was a first known success and was released from control.
Don't get fantasizing: He's already married: Lady Architect, wife of Architect for millions of (maybe billions of) years - created to be the most beautiful girl in all the universes. Lots of descendants - scattered, though, through unknown event. Their first encounter was during Architect's age of five. He saved Her from a gang of bullies. When he helped her up, flashforward. He carried Her home, and next thing you know, they are together. Taught Her combat skills, goes to same schools, getting straight-As with Her, having different adventures with Her, and later... hitched.
Their immortality was something I've been working on... His immortality was given by His ancestors. In many events, immortality was considered a curse, but theirs was a pure gift, for it was not given to Him alone - He has someone to live the immortality alongsidewith Him. It goes like this: "You will not grow old, you will not die, but you will also not be tired. You will have all the time you need, but you will not waste any second of it. Every bit of your life will not be lived in vain. Every moment of your life will be a treasure of yours."
I've recently got a story of their divorce: Architect got into a heavy accident, but survived. However, later his wife has filed for divorce (for reasons unknown). He took it well, and work hard on reconciliation. In the end, it worked out: two years later, they remarried... but everything just went blank then. Turns out, the great revelation was, that Architect went into a deep coma after the accident, and the Core Designer (that's me) begun to have doubts on their marriage, and gave them the ultimate test, so he/I gave Him the divorce dream to see how He would deal with it, and if She would stay loyal to Her husband (Like the Test of Faith). Results? They both passed the test, and continues to live their happy life, with me, still creating their stories and finding their missing children.
About his children... they were created mostly out of fictional characters. One of the notable ones was Stuart Little (Yeah, the cute little mouse from Stuart Little). He doesn't know his parents, and the story was, he was one of Architect's direct descendants, a high-rank in one part of His Spearhead Armies. Real fierce warrior. A loyal soldier and a gentleman. His girlfriend (yep, you guessed it), Margalo, was first encountered during his operation to take down a renegade High General, and that's when Stuart first met her - she's the HG's daughter. She was captured and taken back to Architect's base, and later Stuart offered to take her to his place (Architect knew his mind, without the Mind-viewing). Margalo started unstable and arrogant and mean and snotty, but as time passes, she began to calm down and become much nicer and sweet. And then (as you know) they fell in love. Their relationship was on-and-off once or twice with several tests. But that later changed during their then-last planetary battle to extract the planetary inhabitants. Stuart was the commander for the battle, and Margalo was the second-in-command. The whole system was filled with enemy forces. The planet was overrun and the enemy was keep sending reinforcements. So they have to detonate a supernova device to eliminate the entire local solar system. Stuart stayed behind to hold off the enemy attack while the last transport escape. Margalo chose to stay with him and refused to leave his side again. They were both killed when the supernova device detonates. Later Architect salvaged their essence from the blast site, but theirs were too unstable for reconstruction. The head scientist came up with the idea to place their essences into animal bodies and allow them to grow, and when they are full-fledged, they can be reconstructed. And Stuart's essence was compatable to a mouse, and Margalo's was a canary. They were on their way home when their ship was attacked by pirates, and they had to fire their canisters into the designated coordinates (not Earth, Sol system). The coordinates were set and were just firing when a stray cannon hit their cannon and deviated the trajectory. Losses aside, they obliterated the pirates, and started searching for them.
They finally found them on Earth, awaken, evolved animals with ability to speak human languages. And later there were the movie plots... <cliffhanger>
Feels like I talked enough for one day. I'll continue tomorrow... if you are still interested. Later.
Holy crap, you've put a LOT of thought into this, haven't you?
Okay but firstly, sorry. It was 1am and I was emotional and I ramble lots when it's late; you probably can tell. What few friends I have are aware of this pretty bad habit, and humour me usually.
I don't mind sharing things with you, I trust you and really, what harm can come out of confiding in someone across the planet? Unless you were lying about your location, and even then you could harm me. It won't happen again, though, I'll try and keep my rambling on a leash from now on. ^^;;
Architect is a perfect name (or the something he's called) for your character, I think. I love the idea, though, of some dark divine being making world prototypes in the background. Sheds a new light on a lot of things, given that we (the humans) really don't know much about anything in this universe. This sounds a little like the Doctor from Doctor Who, an powerful being blessed (cursed) with immortality. But also very different.
Just one thing, though. Again, with the Nick/Grimm/immortality argument. If Architect is completely perfect and god-like, what's the point? He could do anything without a struggle, everything would go his way. He could save his children with the snap of his fingers, it sounds like, he could wake up from his coma in seconds.
He'd never be troubled by anything, or hurt, or scared, and then there wouldn't be much to write about, I think.
I don't see why you can't turn this into a book, though, as long as you changed the copy-righted names (like Stuart). Because it goes against religious beliefs? Almost all sci-fi books do; that's the point of the civil liberty: freedom of religion.
With this level of development and creativity, I see no problem with you being an "official" writer.
I thought I'd scared you away for a moment, and I really am sorry for dumping all that crap onto you at once. ^^; I hope it hasn't weirded you out too much.
By the way, do you have a Skype or something? Or some other communication platform? I know skype's not all that popular in China, but it'd be a heck lot more convenient and private than the wikia.
Like I said, don't keep anything on a leash. Speak your thoughts.
He is the true perfect being, but only because of me. He 's the embodiment of all the good virtues of male characters. And since I am the Core Designer, and I said He's under direct orders only from me, He bend to my will. If I don't want to pull Him out of that coma, he won't. He'll just have to stay two years before He's active again. I am the only one who can kill him. I am his undoing.
He and His wife are the true perfects, but their children are not. And given the fact that they are scattered across the universes, there's a damn good reason for Him to worry about. I should've told this: He's very family-man like. Family's his first priority. However, He sure doesn't need to worry about children abductions - every one of His children was trained into a powerful and fierce weapon, even His youngest, three and a half years old, can take on a whole army regiment. The attempted kidnappers would be scared off before they can get their hands on them. And given His powers and the technologies on his planet - He would find them the second He knows aomething's wrong, and their kidnappers would be... what? Try giving me an ending on this.
His main task was to find his children, and the most notable one was Stuart. At the same time he spread operations across different universes. You know the Hunger Games? That Panem situation was no fluke. One of his subordinates, the Junior Architect, has an army of Omens (big self-awaring machines, cutting-edge technology). One of them went rogue, and somehow provided technology to the unready world, causing premature uplifting results in that dystopian Panem. Over the stories he's been tracking the Omen down, the Omen has been directing president Snow with orders, and he managed to narrow the perimeter down to a galaxy, a nebula, a star system, a planet, to the precise coordinates. The communication spiked in the third novel, Mockingjay, bringing it easier to track. Eventually, the communication breaks, Junior Architect recaptures the rogue Omen, president Snow breaks down, causing Katniss and the rebels to win the second rebellion, it was no accident. It all happened the same time.
Architect runs a huge organization, and at the bottom of it, the Consortium. Ranked by numbers, the lower the number, the higher the ranks, and the more tougher it is to reach in. The divisions were like; the Regular Armies (RA), the Bulkhead Army (BA), the Spearhead Army (SA), the Task Force (TF), the Assignment Group (AG), etc. His recruits were mostly from fictional characters. So far, I've found these people: Severus Snape, Paladin (4CTF), K.I.A. Anakin Skywalker. Luke Skywalker. Mara Jade Skywalker,(6CSA), active. Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad. Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Connor Davensport, (7CSA), active. Adm. Shepard (and the whole Mass Effect gang), (5CBA), active. Dr. Tenma, cutting-edge technology research and development division, (6CBA)
<laugh> I have absolutelyno problem with the weird, rambling you around. In fact, I quite enjoyed this. It's good to have someone who listens. Especially to my ramblings. ^_^
I don't really know much about Skype, but I'm learning. I'll try to have it installed.
By the way, I got a new favourite moment of AC: During AC: Brotherhood, Ezio piloted a glider that fires fireballs (commonly known today as bombers). With that music, that was my favourite moment. If that was free-flying it would be sooooo cooool!
That made me feel so much better, I was really, really worried at one point. Also, you call Architect's story ramblings? This is a novel, all nicely planned out! I love how you're so organized in your ideas, everything links. I've got Eira in multiple shows/movies, too, but it's all messy and disorganized.
Dang, you're powerful in your stories, aren't you. ^^ I think it's super cool that despite His divinity, Architect has a personality/worries and all that. Gives him a lot more depth, I think.
As for the kidnappers, I'm still not sure what Architect's personality is like. He could give them a swift death, or y'know, drag it out. Reminds me of a part from the Grimm novels where a very-much-not-Wieder Blutbad threatens "We'll be eating you for a long time before we kill you." Rather chilling.
Tell me though, what would Architect do? Certainly not eat them, but would He throw them to something that would? What He does would shape his personality immensely - actions speak volumes louder than words.
Aha, Architect's worked his way into the the Hunger Games too, eh? I love the Hunger Games, read them way before the movies came out. Glad you like it too. Also, Severus Snape, gosh. I'm glad he's not dead in your stories, he's not dead in mine either, when I used to write Harry Potter stories.
Skype's a bit like QQ? I believe that's the Chinese equivalent. Basically a private-ish calling/messaging program, lots easier to use than the Grimm wikia wall messages.
I wouldn't want to bore you with too much about Eira, she's usually only interesting to me, certainly nowhere as interesting as Architect... ^^; She's in many worlds - Doctor Who, Supernatural, Hannibal, etc, but she doesn't have recollection of them? She just kinda exists.
In the Grimm universe, she was born into an infamous Endezeichen Grimm clan, where her mom is the Queen, or leader. As princess, she's expected to uphold the rules of the Grimms, which pains her, because she doesn't like the killing. But she does it all the same, because she was raised this way.
At six, she made friends with a young Blutbad. Neither knew who the other were, until one of Eira's clanmates realised it and tried to kill the Blutbad. The Blutbad, terrified, defends himself and kills the clanmate, traumatising Eira and strengthening her determination to rid the world of Wesen.
Come to think of it, perhaps I've been writing from Eira's perspective too long, maybe that's why I think Nick's going to go down his ancestor's road too. Anyway, eleven years later, Eira is sixteen and sent to Portland on a mission to get rid of the "Blutbad that's been tainting the new Grimm" (Monroe).
In Portland, she meets the Capt'n, who knows she's hiding something. Curious, he gives her a job - she passes the physical test with flying colours and is an excellent detective. She meets Monroe, but is surprised at how sweet he is, and that saves his life.
Eventually the Scooby Gang finds out, and try and help her leave her past behind. The past is hard to change, though, and she slips up sometimes, but she tries really hard, and her training / knowledge of Wesen helps the team a lot. At one point she meets her mom (awkward!) and tries to convince her that the Endezeichen way is wrong. Probably fails, too. I don't know, I'm not at that point yet.
The story just follows her on her journey to change who she was raised to be, and maybe find redemption for all the blood on her hands.
(I feel anxious as heck sharing this much, but I owe you more, especially since you've shared so much with me)
"It killed her, killed her, killed-
The steady mantra pumps in your head, your weary lungs, your pulsing veins. The trees call out your name, and the thing is getting nearer, nearer, nearer. Scarlet eyes grinning and slitted, it takes a step towards you, brown, tufted fur matted and streaked with gore.
The forest blurs as you scream-
Your eyes fly open. That dream again. The engine in the background whirs, mildly irritating to your sensitive ears.
The people around you show no sign that they heard you say anything, but the screams are still lathered thickly in your skull."
Whoop whoop. A very different story from yours, but I like it. Since I can make up any Wesen and send Eira and the gang to hunt it down, it's really quite entertaining.
Do you know the name of that AC soundtrack that you mentioned? I love the music in that game, though I've never played Brotherhood. And you could make it free-flying, in your story. Perks of being the Core-Designer. ^^
Did you ever decide on the RP / collaborative writing? It's totally okay if you're not comfortable doing that; I understand ^-^ I'd love to see some o' your writings some time, though.
Also, Severus Snape, gosh. I'm glad he's not dead in your stories, he's not dead in mine either, when I used to write Harry Potter stories.
Severus Snape was dead in my story. He was accepted the Paladin (4CTF) shortly after 3rd grade in Hogwarts, and he was the first human student to ace in his high mualim(teacher)'s class, and the first human student managed to get within150-meter range to attack him (no student ever breached the 500-meter range) during the finals. Afterwards, the Junior Architect of Harry Potter universe informed the suicide task, to go deep undercover into Voldemort's legion. A PoI (person of interest) was identified as Lily Evans, that's when Snape decided to volunteer. J.A. warned him about the danger that there's a very high probability that he may not return alive after the task, but Snape accepted the task firmly. Turned out he was right; it was a suicide task - Snape never managed to successfully exfiltrate and was killed by Nagini. After the Battle of Hogwarts, Snape was given a proper Fourth Consortium funeral.
Snape was never Voldemort's staff or Dumbledore's, he was Junior Architect's top student. I never wrote him alive. : )
Do you know the name of that AC soundtrack that you mentioned? I love the music in that game, though I've never played Brotherhood. And you could make it free-flying, in your story. Perks of being the Core-Designer. ^^
Actually, I did make a story, but not with that.
Architect's daughter - one of them - was on her 17th birthday, her father sent her on a high-priority task to retrieve some confifdential files.
It looked pretty serious, though, since he sent Luke and Mara Jade Skywalker as her escorts. Best Jedi warriors - Architect doesn't send top warriors as escort for no reasons.
The story started when the AC2 soundtrack Flight Over Venice starts, picture that:
Winter, skyscraper, possibly christmas eve, heavy snowing. Suddenly an explosion, and Architect's daughter, Luke and Mara Jade ran out of the building on the top floor, with the whole security forces aftering them, then when they ran out of escape routes, Mara Jade led the trio out of the top floor window and they jumped out of the building. They were freefalling and they opened their aviator suit, and flied their way home, with a lot of air battling. Luke and Mara Jade were gone during their chase and she made it back home-base alone, only to find it was all a joke - Architect directed all of this, and both her escorts were with him all along.
It's like the episode 19 of Castle season 5, only more real-like.
Told you I can make a story out of a piece of music.
Wait till you see what I got in store for Stuart and Margalo's story with the Mass Effect 2 soundtrack.
You know... you should start a novel, too. Mine is also broken and disorganized. It was parts and pieces. It doesn't even have a chronological timeline. I just make up stories from... stories. And if you think I can do it, then maybe... you can, too.
Ahh, so busy on the wikia nowadays ^^ Sorry if I'm taking a bit of time to reply - I'm trying to better the episode sypnosises and all.
Gosh dangit, I really like Severus. My favorite characters in the books, to be honest. What you wrote sounds a lot like his character though, so kudos on that.
Pftthaha, Architect is quite a prankster; would hate to get on his bad side. I'm afraid I haven't watched Star Wars before, though, so I'm not too familiar with the Skywalkers.
Me? Novel? Hah. I'm decent at writing - just that, decent. Not good or anything. That and I can't plan a coherent story for poop. Thank you for the encouragement, though. I hope to be a writer some day in the future, maybe... ^^
"I just make up stories ... from stories" That sounds pretty much like a writer's job description, though, hehe.
I'm going to go watch Castle, episode 2 now )^^( Can't wait!

If you think these 2 eps are interesting, wait till you see the rest of them.
The duo always make playful jokes together, especially Rick. He's like me, a grown man with a 10-year-old mind. In fact, Nathan Fillion himself commented on his character, saying he was "a bit of a douche" with "a bit of Peter Pan syndrome". That's possibly from after being the captain of the Firefly. ^_^
Don't forget to check out that *cute*, "14-year-old" like mother of Castle's, and his much more mature-like daughter of his.
Try listen to Assassin's Creed soundtrack. Some of them spikes your creativity, some of them make you sentimental, and some can even make your tears drop.
Definitely, I love the daughter and the mom. The characters are just all so witty and charming ^^ Oh my gosh though, I wonder what happened to Beckett before, she looked so heartbroken when she was comforting Chloe. On to episode 3! I
Hey, are you watching the subtitled version or the un-subtitled version? If subtitled version, and you don't want to wait, you can always download them. I can give you a website for that. The Chinese translations of subtitles were sometimes profesionally odd, in a good way. Brings out the comical elements in it.
By the way, when you play AC, have you merged the characters with the ones in your mind? Because, take it from me, there's plenty of opportunies here.
For example, you remember when I tell you that "Architect and his watchers perch on the highest viewpoints with the clearest sight"? And by watching Castle I pictured a fun image:
Castle's wedding. The Killer, Jerry Tyson/3XK barged in, attempting to kill Castle or the bride, Castle pushed her from harm's way, then all of a sudden, his eyes glowed dark red, "That's it,"he said, and stormed towards 3XK.
(Writer's comment: I chose dark red for a reason: The color red is always considered a color of hostility, so by showing this color to 3XK, I want him to see that his attacker (the one controlling Castle) is coming in very hostile)
3XK tried to shoot Castle, but Castle somehow got this weird red field protecting him, void of any attacks. Then out of the blue his right wrist glowed red, showing a clear silhouette of a vambrace and a blade attachment, then he stabbed 3XK hard with it.
(Writer's comment: See the similarities? The pun? Clearly the bladed vambrace was obviously from AC, but blade with glowing red silhouette? That was from the game Mass Effect 3s' disposable omni-blade, disappears after using)
3XK was killed.
Alexis called out, "Dad!" Castle turned around, and Alexis watched his dad, startled. Castle turned around slowly towards everyone at present. Then he and everyone watched as his blade, his weird red field and 3XK's blood on his hand and his clothes slowly fade and dematerialize.
(Writer's comment: Clearly responsible of Architect's Watcher, huh? Killed that 3XK and took full responsibility, making sure everyone at present knows it was not Rick who commited the kill, and not letting Rick or anyone take the fall.)
Then he fixed his eyes on the bride, and nodded, mysteriously. She looked at Castle's eyes carefully, puzzled, not knowing who it was that saved their lives and took out 3XK. Then suddenly the dark red in Castle's eyes fades out, returning him to his original blue, and Castle falls on the ground, unconscious.
Everyone was worried, the bride came to his side and checked on him, "He's alive," she said, turning to him, "he's breathing. Castle, you're gonna be all right. You're gonna be okay."
(Writer's comment: Big cliffhanger. Outro of this season and Intro to next season.)
P.S. I got skype installed, by the way. Maybe we can start chatting there now.
P.P.S. Can I have the honor of your photograph on your next reply? Maybe here, or maybe not here. I just uploaded mine.
I am watching with subtitles, but if you have a website to download them, by all means, I'm listening! I'm going on a long plane trip in a couple days, and I'd love to have something to spend my time on. ^^
On episode 5, by the way. It's truly unfair how much this show had me laughing, oh my god.
