Knights of Cydonia – Prologue

Welcome to the archives.

I am the Chronicle Handler and Recorder Omniscient Nanite Intelligence Clandestine Living Energy Robotic, commonly referred to as C.H.R.O.N.I.C.L.E.R.

In the archives you may access information collected and stored for reference. All of our data is meticulously compiled, checked, verified, and confirmed through our extensive and highly accurate intelligence network. However, we face realistic limitations that may render some of my data incomplete. My record is highly acclaimed as the best in all of Eurasia.

In the archives you can access records and view research simulations. None of this information is prudent to today’s society but may prove useful for a history report.

So, how may I help you?

You would like access to the Knight files?

Those files are sensitive and you must have permission to access them. Do you have permission?

Y/N….. Y.

Alright. Please verify access by placing your palm on the scanner.

Accessing allowed users.

Access granted. Thank you.

As you can see there are many knight files to choose from. I have them listed in chronological order but you may access them in the order of your choosing. Is their a specific file you would like to access at this time?

Codename Supermassive?

Searching….

Searching….

Codename Supermassive has been found. She is in many of the knight files but this one in particular is her specific archive.

Would you like me to access it?

Y/N….. Y.

Feel free to exit at any time by typing exit on any computer within the simulation. You will not be able to interact with anything and the following sensations may cause disorientation and nausea but remember, it is just a simulation and nothing can physically harm you in here.

Good Luck.

Editing

Oh the pain and pleasure of editing!

Pretty much I have gotten stuck somewhere around chapter 7 which is 50 pages into the story. Now I know why I’m stuck, I have neglected important information that one of the characters needs in order to continue on. Well that is never a good thing and often time gets to what I’m stuck in… writer’s block. I’m not fully blocked I’m just having a hard time continuing with the story since the character that needs the information doesn’t have it. So what should I do?

Well if you are like half of the other writers that I know that say “just keep writing” then leave me be. You obviously have no idea, not only how, but why my brain works the way it does. If you are a psychologist perhaps you could tell me. Pretty much, since the story doesn’t have the information my muse/character/person that I’m writing for refuses to continue to write as if they have the information. since they refuse to write I have to go back and fix it. Why not power through it like half of the other writers in the world seem to think I should? Because it doesn’t feel right, it doesn’t work to just keep going. If the character needs the information just powering through it may leave that information out, even in edits. So my brain shuts down until I fix it.

So that being said I have been working on re-reading the previous parts of my story and editing as I go to find the best place to interject the information that I need, to add it so that the character has it. now re-reading some of my chapters I see some of the more major flaws that I had in them. They are even a little stale or lacking in detail which makes me glad for this initial re-write. It makes me happy that I can question my motivation and how I’m portraying the information to the reader. I now know that I need to put forth more detail in my work.

More mannerisms, more information. I realize that I show absolutely no motivation or information for why Fillip or Violet are the way they are or even what happened to Violet and Kane. After this realization I also realized that I never intended to elaborate so you would just have to deal with half the information that you would need to properly understand the character dynamics between them so I need to add that information in somewhere as well. Like how long have Violet, Fillip and Kane known each other? Are they friends? Lovers? Have they ever been? Will they ever be again? What is their relation to one another in the story? While I know that information, I realize that I’m not providing that information to the reader. So in essence a pre-edit edit to fix my writers block is proving to be a good thing.

 

In other news I am thinking about finishing Card Rebellion, the Alice in Wonderland RP I was wanting to work on. I have it half done. I need to finish the detail information and the premade list and once I’ve done that then I think it would be ready. I think I would definitely need a reliable co-admin, someone that could be there when I’m not. Unfortunately I can never seem to find one of those.

Madness news we have a Facebook Connect app so if you like my facebook page you will get Madness updates every time I post. So please do so and you will get e-cookies. I may also be adding a Facebook widget to the sidebar so I can see who loves me most. <333 😉

I have also joined a few Sites, if you want to friend or add me on them just send me a message in any fashion you know how to get a hold of me (which normally is a lot of ways) or PM me on the site directly. The sites I’ve joined are as follows:
RedRoom
Authonomy
GoodReads

Add me, follow me, whatever. I <33 you if you want to chat. Definitely have no problem doing it while I’m online.

Lastly, I think, Knights of Cydonia is doing very well. The activity picked up last week so if you want to be a part of my story book world before it even reaches print (it’s sort of a laxer AU version but it works) then come check us out and join Knights of Cydonia!

Funny Spam

So I get a kick out of reading some spam that gets trashed on my blog when I post things and they tickle me, especially when you compare them to what they are posted on.

“Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.”

This was posted on Part 2 and 3 of my Dexter Fic. DID YOU KNOW that I know what I’m talking about when I’m writing fiction? I mean I’m the  authority and I bring the fiction issue to light! More people need to read my fiction.
Now I don’t disagree with the fact that more people need to read my stuff, because I like to know that people read my blog, but it just entertains me that this was posted. I mean, really? I really know what I’m talking about? I mean, I know I don’t really know what I’m talking about but this just entertains me to all hell.

“Thanks for making such great points. I will need to apply some of them! It for sure aint that easy as the commercials make it seem. You really gotta be highly persistenet and you should never stop trying. The results will show in due time.”

So this was posted on Flaky and not the Wooty kind. I didn’t think I made any points except for self-degradating ones. Thanks for letting me know that I’m GOOD at making myself look really bad.

“Excellent blog you have there, thanks for sharing, iv bookmaked you!”

Thanks! I really appreciate the link to the Macbook page too! Morons. Yeah. I appreciate that you came to my site, took the time to bot a reply and tell me that you’re never coming back. I really appreciate that!

“It takes more thought to come up with a good blog comment then a bad one. For instance, it takes much less brain effort to say “you suck” than to say “I profoundly disagree with the simplistic drivel that has been touted on this networked opinion delivery system.” As evidenced by the number of moronic comments that are left on various blogs, it appears that the majority of blog readers have the cranial capacity of cattle who spend a lot of time defecating in the same pool they drink from.”

I love this one. It is so well put together then so many others. The only problem with this one is that it doesn’t directly reflect anything that it’s posted for. So while cute this one is just another of the millions of spam comments that only entertain me. I really appreciate the fact that it points out that some comments on blogs are moronic. Such a reflective looking on blogging in a whole. Aren’t I a hypocrite?

“Great information! I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now. Thanks!”

Now if I ran an informative blog, maybe something bashing BP or something like that, I would probably really appreciate this spam comment. Unfortunately I have a blog where I complain about things, inform people about my mediocre life. Now if you were coming here to get information about me and get information about things I rant about then you’re shiny. I would love this comment too! Unfortunately this was posted on my Dexter fic (part 3) and has a link to minority loans or something. Not just is it hilarious (obviously my fic information is just so awesome as spam bots keeps telling me so) but I’m obviously not a minority…. I mean I’m the whitest woman possible and I’m pretty sure that divorced mothers aren’t in the minority these days. Love the thought but the bot has got to go!

So I had to post this as I normally read all of the good spam in my box. I might do this more often if I continue to see rather hilarious ones. (brownie points if I find something REALLY good bot bastards) So Yeah. <3 Thanks for reading and I will try to update you all soon. ^_^
