Fantasy has no genre

So, as everyone knows, I roleplay. I love to roleplay, I love to write collaboratively with other people and I love to simply enjoy people.

Well, one thing about roleplayers is that we like specific genres because that’s the flavor of writing we like to enjoy. One thing that perturbs me is that so many people akin the work “fantasy” to elves and dwarves when, fantasy is anything that isn’t realistic. Now the thing that really confuses me is that the word itself is immediately constituted with something medieval.

So that got me to thinking: What is fantasy exactly?

Well, fantasy is anything that isn’t reality basically. So why the label of Medieval? Probably something akin to media stating that Medieval movies are “Fantasy” and that Science Fiction is “Sci-Fi” but really? They are leaving off words, words that are important to people that write. I even stress to say that a Historical roleplay is a “Historical Fantasy”. No matter the time frame as it is not reality. It’s not like me typing up this long babbling post about my confusion of the word itself.

So Fantasy is a word to mean, not real life. My point is, when I ask what sort of Fantasy I’m looking to find what your flavor of fantasy you prefer. All roleplays are fantasy (even the real life based ones) so it easier to define your genre.

I am a fantasy enthusiast, I stray toward Science Fiction more than Modern or Medieval but I enjoy Fantasy. How about you?

 

I’m not really blonde… honest

So I’m sitting here, staring at my computer screen, flirting with a guy via text and not able to really concentrate. Now, at first you’d think that I am not able to concentrate because of the flirting but texting is s sort of basic function in today’s society, I can do it with my eyes closed almost so it’s highly doubtful that it’s the source of my distraction.So I continue to try to figure it out why I’m so scatter brained when I’m trying to write.

Well I discovered my problem… the Internet. I started reading the most recent chapter of my Dexter fanfiction and I got a few paragraphs into it before I clicked onto Google+, then onto Knights of Cydonia (My RP) then onto Morr Dystopia (My Dystopia site). Afterward I did a few mundane things and then returned, forgetting of my prior plan to write.

Now, I’m back to remembering but I’m tired which does not make a good brain for writing but the need/want to write. So now I will have to wait until tomorrow to write my next Dexter chapter.

I think I will blame the temporary blonde hair for the ditzy behavior (although it’s not uncommon)

God of War Fail… Or not really

Okay, so I didn’t post a blog last night. My apologies. I’m sort of addicted to watching people play this trilogy of games, God of War. I watched my ex play through one and two and my brother got three a few days ago and last night I was watching him play until four in the morning…. well sort of. I fell asleep about 3 or four times in the process of watching him play but I was doing that last night instead of producing a fantastic blog for everyone to read. Why? Because I could and because I wanted to watch the epicness that is God of War. On top of that I was really a little (lot) disappointed with Alice in Wonderland.

Yeah! I’m a big Alice in Wonderland fan and I went to finally see Alice in Wonderland yesterday, as excited to see it as I’ve ever been, and I left feeling empty inside. It was like the movie was the perfect soup, it had all of the right ingredients but something was still off about it. I mean I think that making Alice in Wonderland dark and all that is a fantastic idea. I loved the cast, the director but not the movie. I think this movie was by far my biggest let down of a movie that I had ever seen. I don’t see many movies in theaters and I feel like I sort of wasted my time with watching this one instead of waiting until it came out on DVD. I probably should have just waited for Prince of Persia. Sadly? I think the credits were my favorite part. <_<

I think that’s it for my yesterday updates.

Today! I went to the Arboretum with my mum and kids and my mum’s friend Hilary and her kids. It was the first time I have been and it was enjoyable. It was like a nice long nature walk. Fun. I’m pretty sore from the adventure mostly because I don’t exercise a lot but I am thinking about taking up Yoga. I find that the Wii Fit *when I could find the silly thing* made me really happy with the Yoga stuff. I think I’ll be buying myself a new Wii and a new Wii fit since I have to send mine to my ex. I just need something calming that I think I need to start and end the day out with. Nothing too intense because it exhausts me and I prefer to relax and be more aware.

I’m putting together my newest webcomic. Another one that I will probably be the only one that understands the joke but if you want to understand it then please feel free to ask me, I’m always glad to fill you in on my bizarre bit of humor.

Okay, I’d probably talk and prattle on more but my brother is playing God of War and I have a comic to post tomorrow!
Hope you’re having a good day! ^_^

Quick update type thing I guess

Not much done today. I watched a lot of Dr Who. I cried to a lot of Dr Who. I didn’t realize that I hadn’t watched season for of Dr Who but I have now and cried another river and will probably cry more. I think Dr Who is one of the most depressing awesome Sci-Fi shows ever. None of it negates the depressing though. I sort of want to write a Dr Who Fanfic about my travelling with the Doctor. I want to be the Doctors love. I love him and he makes me so depressed but I love him anyways.

I’m watching the movie after season 4 and then I’m going to go web surfing for the Season 5 which will probably just depress me further because David Tennant isn’t in it. T_T I am all for Doctor Rose stuff. Of course Doctor Donna isn’t too bad either! ^_^

What else for today? Well nothing really. Kids, Dr Who….

WELL! There was this one thing with this guy on the IPB forums but he’s starting to get on my nerves. I’m about ready to utilize the Ignore system for the second time ever and it will be the second time in less then a month. Why do I have to be so nice to people? I mean I’m not here. If anything I’m downright rude most of the time because I’m just mean and it shows but I try not to be. I mean I’m a moody bitch but I’m not really all that cruel but sometimes I want to be. Blunt. That’s the word, blunt or brash. I’m just rarely able to turn that filter on but I am nice enough, when I’m not annoyed.

Whatever I guess. C’est La Vie as I always say. I will see what tomorrow brings me for a day. Depending on how it goes depends on if I utilize the ignore function.

Hope you’re having a smashing day!!

A Whole New World

Okay… I think I said in a previous post I wouldn’t use lines from movies and songs to title my entries. I lied obviously. Sorry to those that actually believed me. I will try to be more careful in the future but I don’t promise anything.

SO! Today I’ve been working on creating my own little world. I’m actually working on how to make it the way I want it. I’m a little weird and I want it to be in a particular fashion and I don’t want it to be a “Because I said so” sort of thing. I want there to be a good reason as to why the world works the way it does. Currently I either have that I’m going to make up my own version of the big bang theory and make the world into an oval or a coin sort of thing. OR I’m going to have it rotate very slowly and have a steampunk mechanism that deflects sunlight. I already have a few sketches that I’ve been drawing up of how to work it exactly. They are the super preliminary drawing do-dads but it’s no where near complete.

That being said I’m writing a story once I get it all figured out. It will be great. I am going to work on stuff and see where it goes. Yay me!!

Just thought you guys might want to know where my life is going.
