Cya Yells at a Kept

aldersprig: (Cya Surprise)
[personal profile] aldersprig
Okay, so the premise of this is thus: in this timeline, Cya has a small meltdown when she realizes that Leo is never going to love her the way she loves him. This has always been true. She’s always known it to be true. But she’s got a lot of practice at denial.

Anyway, her poor Kept has to deal with sobbing Cya and… in a move proving why her power thought he needed to be in a protective Keeping for a year… punches Leo in the face.

Leo gamely DOESN’T attack him back, although he scolds him, yells at him, and tells him to get out of his sight.

And then Cya comes home.

(this one comes before yesterdays’ Luke’s Homework ( story. That’s what I get for writing before we finish the RP…)

“I’ve been thinking.” As intros went, leaning in the doorway of Mike’s office with his feet still planted on the hallway floor, it left something to be desired. But he had been, and that had been the best he could come up with.”

“I can tell.” Mike smirked up at him. “Come in, feather-brain. Keep doing that and we’ll have an audience in no time.”

Luke came in, closing the door behind him. “It’s summer,” he muttered, before letting himself get back to the topic. “You can tell?’

Last week's results:

Asuka Langley Soryuu [16] - [8] Shana
Germany [10] - [15] Shintarou Midorima
Rin Tohsaka [10] - [14] Ritsu Sakuma
Kyou Souma [11] - [13] Donald Duck

Congrats to Brittany for winning the bonus crayon lottery!

Good day, Colors players. My name is Elizabeth. I am here to host the most amazing battle tournament in existence - the Colorseum!
Don't worry, no one will get hurt, at least as long as I don't want them to... The battles will not be decided by strength or strategy, but rather by the ability to win the crowd's hearts! And the judges... will be you!

Want more details? My pleasure!
- Each 'round' will consist of 5 'sub-rounds', posted weekly. They will be First Round A, First Round B, Quarter-finals, Semi-finals and the Final!
- Each round will have a theme - they work in a similar way to the Scrapbook things you use here.
- Each round will have 16 characters from various series fighting in one-on-one battles, in a form of a knockout tournament.
- You decide who will advance to the next round by casting your votes.
- The votes are unscreened, and every player participating will get the same prizes, regardless of the final results! That means you can always vote for the characters YOU like the most!
- Feel free to try to convince other players to vote for your favourites! Bribery, threats - anything goes!
- I will always vote last, just before closing the round. If two characters are tied after that, the one with the higher seed advances to the next round.
- During the final battle of each round, you will be able to suggest who you want to participate in the next one!

Now, let's see today's battles!
Enter the arena )

This round will close on 1st April, Central European time!

“Down three stairs here, right - now. There you go. You’re quite good at this.” Sir guided Ctirad down the stairs, his arm very warm and his grip pleasantly firm.

“Would you believe practice?”

“At the moment, from you, I’d believe any number of things, my handsome dear. Did Ermenrich know what you are? How good you are?”

“He…” Ctirad considered his answers. “Didn’t really care, sir. He was interested in what he wanted, and that was about as far as it went.”

“A short-sighted man in many ways. Ah, well. Door here, hold on.” The sound of a door being opened was followed by faint traffic noises. Not on the road they were on, then. Ctirad wondered where, exactly, they were. One of Sir’s buildings? One of Ermenrich’s? He didn’t think even his former master would have left him in an abandoned building helpless to wait for his new owner.

Not, at least, if it would cause the deal to go through.

“All right, we’re going to get into the car. Here we go, mind your head.” Sir’s hand was very firm on the back of Ctirad’s head as he steered him down and into a car. It smelled like leather and cleaner, like it had very recently been detailed.

He scooted over and felt Sir’s leg next to his, and then the door closed firmly. “We’re going home, please.”

“Yes, sir.” The voice was a warm alto. Ctirad could tell almost nothing from it about the speaker, except that they were in front of him, in the driver’s seat, and that there wasn’t glass.

“Now.” He could feel Sir shifting, his knee leaving contact only to brush against Ctirad’s leg again. “We’re not in private, but we’re not in public, either, so what happens for the next half hour is, at least in part, up to you.”

That was new. Ctirad wanted badly to open his eyes, if only to see what sort of body language went with that. “Sir?” had to suffice instead.

Nilien slipped carefully off the table, testing her weight on her feet. The pain had settled in to a very dull ache that could be ignored with impunity.

“Be careful on that ankle,” Dr. Alaroq reiterated, “and come back if you feel any new symptoms. In the meantime, do try to stick to a walk when wandering places you’re not supposed to be.”

“Yes, Doctor.” Nilien smiled at the doctor and then looked down at Ember. “Where’s Lorque?”

March is Worldbuilding Month! Leave me a question about any of my worlds, and I will do my best to answer it! (I need more questions, guys)
This tenth one is from [ profile] ladyRowyn: Do you have any worlds that aren’t Earth-like in general shape/climate/vegetation? why/why not?

Okay, I have to think about that one!

Okay, so something like 9/10 of my worlds are immediately out of the running because they’re “in a world much like our own;” i.e., urban fantasy, for the most part, the sort of thing where it’s very familiar to readers because it’s Earth (and usually America), just with magic: Aunt Family, Stranded World, Fae Apoc, Planners, Facets, Shadow Rebellion, Tír na Cali, Bug Invasion, Fairy Town, Cracks, Science! (okay, Science! is Earth, just with Science!), Inner Circle.

Then there’s settings where we never really see the world - Dragons Next Door, Unicorn/Factory…

Okay, things actually set on a different world: Reiassan, which is goats and linen and rice and parsnips, just after a little ice age. That’s pretty earth-like. I mean, the continents are different…

Last week's fan mail was sent by Urameshi Yusuke from Yu Yu Hakusho!

Oikawa Tooru is a very busy guy. When he's not training hard for his volleyball matches or teasing his adorable kouhai, he is dealing with all of the gifts from his fans! Always looking to please them, he writes a thank you note to the sender of every single gift he has received. However, sometimes the gifts come unsigned, including the one he has just received! Can you help him figure out where he needs to send the thank you letter?
Where does today's fan mail come from? )

Colors Stamp Card Changes

[personal profile] phibby posting in [community profile] colors_trade
Hey everyone! We're just about winding up the first round of Colors Stamp Card, and I wanted to get your opinions on a few things to help improve the game.

1. How was it? Did you like the variety of card requirements? Did all of the rules make sense?

2. This is the main reason for my post. I tried to gauge participation before posting the game and based the number of cards and frequency of the game (weekly vs. biweekly) on this, but you guys surprised me! The Odd Team filled up their stamp card on the second day of the second week, and the Even Team wasn't far behind. That's awesome! But a biweekly game being basically done 5 days before the next round goes up leaves a lot of dead air time, so to speak. So I'm thinking of changing the number of cards per stamp card and/or the frequency of the game. What would you guys prefer?

a. Weekly game with 16 cards per stamp card - the Odd Team had 14 cards filled in at the end of the first week and the Even Team had 15, so this would be right in the neighborhood of participation.
b. Biweekly game with 32 or 40 cards per stamp card - possible, but I'd be afraid this would be too big/unwieldy?
c. Biweekly game with 24 cards per stamp card (as it is now) but players can only donate 1 card a week
d. Keep it as is
e. Something else?

I'd like to keep the number of cards per stamp card a multiple of 8 to keep with the 8 colors we have and fit the template, but I guess it wouldn't have to be? Hmm. Prizes would be adjusted with whatever changes are made, of course!

I'm leaning towards A, but I wanted to hear what you guys would prefer before changing it. Let me know your thoughts! Thanks guys!

Chapter 6: Arnbjörg
by Lyn Thorne-Alder

Friday, September 15, 2000

Arnbjörg wasn’t sure how she’d ended up walking back to her room with Jaya.  She’d managed to evade four of the creeps and two too-friendly sorts, but then there was the cute horned girl walking along next to her, tail bobbing along under that schoolgirl skirt.

“I was bummed when you didn’t show up to the dance Saturday.”  She grinned, a shy thing with a little head tilt.  “I was gonna ask you for a dance or two.”

Their "ride" was not in fact anything that a person could ride at all, it turned out, but rather a slim young man who seemed none too thrilled at being out in the wilderness in the middle of the night. Jeska's owner - took the man's hand and--

--they were in front of a house, in a quiet city neighborhood.

Jeska stared, barely even registering his owner conversing with the man - who had somehow instantly transported them here. The ride was not a ride; going to Cloverleaf hadn't involved being dragged through the streets for everyone to see; his owner had given him a shirt and apologized.

Natsume's Book of Cards 03

[personal profile] magaru posting in [community profile] colors_tcg

Natsume's no ordinary boy. Like his grandmother Reiko he has the ability to see youkai... who flock to him and demand to have their names that Reiko stored in the Book of Friends returned. At Colors, Natsume is visited by some of our past deck releases who would like to have their cards returned!

Every week, one of the releases is picked at random. You can exchange up to five cards from that release for choice cards from that release. You will lose the cards you turn in.

For example, if the chosen release is Release 001, you can turn in an Asobot card and get a choice Logic, Dragon or Optimist card in exchange. Specials can only be gained by turning in other specials!

To get multiple cards from one deck, you need to turn in multiples from another deck as well. You can't get two Logic cards but turning in an Asobot card and a Smile card, but two Asobot cards would work.

This week's release is Release 033!

Please use this form.

Since the prizes for this game are all choice cards and there's no need to pass them out, you can just log them after posting your comment!

This round closes on Thursday, March 30th!

All of these are too hard
*read LJ friends' list*
*pick one item from spreadsheet*
*flip between different parts of book in total despair*
*play with Flight Rising*
*select a scene from book*
*re-read scene*
*despair some more*
*read Twitter*
*go back to scene. Insert two new sentences*

Dr. Alaroq took one look at Nilian and responded with a head-shake and a long-suffering sigh. “Don’t tell me. The woods?”

“Yes?” Nilien ducked her head, suddenly feeling guilty.

“I would say we should put up a wall, but then nobody would ever learn anything from falling over. Thank you, Vaudelle.” The doctor nodded politely at Professor Vaudelle. “I won’t let her go running over any more wild terrain for the next few minutes, at least.”
