These came today. o/ Very happy that Soren is in vol 5 of these mini figures, and it doesn't hurt that Roy and Lilina are in the same box as him. It's just too bad that Ike isn't. (I was almost
tempted to buy the box with Ike in it, but that's a slippery slope because I probably wouldn't stop at just one Ike. You'll know what I mean when you see my itabag, pft) It's cute that a little map comes with these!( These are actually pretty tiny, haha.Collapse )
I have sadly dropped from Tier 20 in FEH just this week, having stayed since February, so a pretty good run. :3 Soren, Olivia, Nowi, you have worked hard. I probably won't build anyone with high BST just to try to keep up though, considering how most of my favorites are infantry units. But we'll see what happens with the arena update. My next merge projects are looking to be Lucius, Sothe, and Libra (so happy he's in the game now~). Haven't been getting Lucius or Sothe much at all though! (I think at this rate, Masked Marth will probably reach +10 before any of the boys).
I also have back up Sorens ready to steal the show if I ever run out of units to build. They're all rocking different IVs, ready to study your magic tomes. One will be a healer, one will be a debuffer with ploys, another will have chills, and last one will probably be a wall with double savage blow. A team of just Soren sounds pretty fun. (I am still holding out for Soren alts though, before I take the plunge) I'm also hoping to build an all guys flying team, but I've had no luck summoning Summer Takumi and his fishie bow (Linde showed up twice...) or Legendary Ryoma. So instead Shigure got stuck with some brides for now. :')( I never did post +10 Nowi here, did I?Collapse )
BTW, now for a completely different topic—I am putting together a 2nd book. Yes, a book! It has always been on the back burner (I even dug up my draft of the book, which was simply titled "Book 2" and has been sitting around my computer since 2015 pffft. I almost couldn't find it) but it took me until last year to actually finish writing A Vice-Captain's Tale, so long that I've mostly shelved thoughts of putting something together. But fhaystshilffe
delivered a lovely picture of Roland ahhhhhh (he shall grace the cover~), so things are rolling again. XD
The book will include these stories: A Vice-Captain's Tale, so we can get to know you, Illuminate My Path, Drink Me Under, No Sweeter Words, Coming Home, A Poor Imitation, Improvements Imminent, Going Going Gone, and Thank You. I'm hoping to include Beyond the Storm Comes Sunlight as well (if I can finish part 2...) and a new story that takes place after A Vice-Captain's Tale and during so we can get to know you, featuring vice-captains taking care of their deaged captains. The book won't feature any oneshots from the New Horizons collection though, since I've only finished two of them so far and they're kind of their own thing. Same for stories part of the Cake verse. If anything, they should be part of their own books. :3;;
So... here's the writing plan:
*Beyond the Storm Comes Sunlight Part 2
*A Vice-Captain's Tale/so we can get to know you extra chapter
And then, for writing that has nothing to do with the book:
*dig up Dage's Illegitimate Child part 2?
*unnamed oneshot about Sun losing his powers (this has been on the plunny list for awhile~)
*possibly a Bokura no Kiseki oneshot
Can't say I've gotten very far on any of these but maybe at least one of these will get done if I get back into the habit of writing more. I think even rambling in my journal will help. I haven't even done that much lately! So, I aim to ramble more, ahahaha. I've finished formatting the stories I have so far, but they'll need revising and stuff, and I have some graphics to make for the book. So, it'll be a while yet until the book is ready. (And I might want to add more stories to it...) But hey, if anyone is interested in a copy, do let me know. XD (I'll be ordering one for my own shelf~) The book will be thinner than the Bittersweet one. So far, it's 288 pages. Unfortunately, I'll be busy soon, so if I don't finish early Aug, it'll be another wait... :') But well, eventually. I have no sense of time, seriously. (Watch me return to a story ten years later.)
Also, still hoping to post about Fanime and Anime Expo. I even already have notes on the guests and panels. XD; Maybe a retrospective on Crunchyroll Expo too (if I can find my notes), before I attend this year's expo, which is coming up next month. I'll be cosplaying FEH Soren again for at least a day, this time with the outfit more complete~.This entry was originally posted at https://lucathia.dreamwidth.org/353804.html.
