And I rather like this idea, too, even if I can't actually write it until I see New Earth, seeing as it is an AU of a spoiler for that, and I'd like to see the point at which my AU actually becomes, well, alternate.
In extra-curricular news, I have become the temporary Secretary of FAS by default. Which is really, really weird.
I had my first actual session of D and D today. Which was rather fun (though it would have been more so if I was less tired, and, you know, actually knew what I was supposed to do. Not much really happened for my character (who has now been dubbed Linnadhiel. Or Lina when she isn't performing).
Still, we had some fabulous other characters. ephant is playing an, ahem, seamstress, who chatted up the bartended in every inn we went into. And we also had a weed-smoking Druid, who had the most amazingly slashy subtext (ie. pretty much text), with a human-hating elf ranger.
Oh, and I couldn't stop giggling at the things that our DM, mercdaemon was saying, because they kept sounding incredibly wrong.
Looks like it might be rather fun, once I get the hang of it.
ETA: Also, GIP, because it is utterly hilarious.
