It's a pity that the whole thing couldn't be as interesting as the last hour or so. Visually, it's stunning. The fighting mechanism isn't so great - somewhat predictable - but it works. Plot-wise, well, there is a plot, but it seems to get lost for long periods of time under the killing of large groups of guards harrassing you in Jerusalem's streets shouting 'infidel' at you for no reason other than you sneezed near them.

I definitely prefer the second one in terms of plot and characterisation.

I'm going to write an AC2 fic which will likely be read by nobody on here, but I'm going to post it anyway. Perhaps you'll read it and simply enjoy it for the comedic value and sexual tension. I know I will.

Now, I am going to get something to eat as I've barely eaten in five days. Gaming is a cruel mistress.

My shoulders are burned!

This whole 'gardening' lark is really getting into full swing. My mum and me spent an hour chopping a big bush down that was choking some other plants. We managed to fill the bin with it, as you see here:



And this is what we were left with, after finding a flowering raspberry, a plant that 'has pink flowers on it' and 'something that grandma gave me' according to my mother.



I'm hoping things start to grow quickly 'cause that garage is really, really ugly. =|

We have some nice flowers in the garden at the moment. Bluebells and peonies.



Ben is starting to not like the heat so much. I don't think he quite knows what to do with himself - he just keeps wandering around and flopping down in the shade. He spent three hours with a daisychain around his neck today, until John started chasing him with the hosepipe and he ran inside and shook it off. Speaking of the hosepipe, after about ten years of mum saying 'I wish we had an outside tap', we finally have one! 



Isn't it so shiny...

Moving on! I've actually been cool enough to start writing today, so here is the beginning of the third chapter of From Fire to Flame for your perusal.

“Aah, man, being a nation is hard.” Peter leaned back in his chair and stretched, tilting his head back to look up as a hand fell on his shoulder.

“What have I told you about coming into my house without permission?” Arthur said, one eyebrow raised as his brother grinned up at him and half rolled out of the chair, coming to his feet, eye-to-eye with the Englishman.


And... that's all, for now.

Garrr..

Oh my Goddddd... It's so freaking hot and humid today I think I'm going to melt. It's been like this for three days now and I've had about enough. It wouldn't be so bad if it could cool down in the evenings and at night but nope, all night I'm boiling too - and I know this, because I was up all night last night.

That's it, folks, I have finally handed in my last assignments ever for university. There was very much an 'it's complete bollocks but it'll have to do' air around this year. I know I haven't been the only one who kind of stopped caring about their marks but hey, I'm pretty much 100% sure that I passed, and I'm looking to get on the Masters degree course in creative writing at Salford which should be made easier by the fact that I'm a graduate of the place.

I also get 20% off the price. Win-Win.

When I got home, I went to sleep. My sister [livejournal.com profile] sparklyscorpio is currently rocking a slightly-orange-tinted-blonde Hayley Williams look with her hair, as the hairdresser was trying to strip the colour off it and her hair is stubbornly clinging to not wanting to be blonde. So much so that the hairdresser had to come back again today to make a third attempt at getting the colour out.

Now that I'm done with all my university obligations, for now at least, I have a few plans for my fanfiction obligations (oh, I know you were waiting to hear that). Along with finishing From Fire to Flame I'm going to start that AU fic that some people showed an interest in, as well as finishing off some that I have half done, and I have big plans for an Arthur-centric fic involving (the great) Admiral Lord Nelson. If you know anything about that guy you would know that there would be no doubt that Arthur would have absolutely adored him by the end, and I do love writing history-based fanfiction so much I don't even.

I'm going to possibly delve into a few more new pairings also - any that I haven't touched upon that anybody would like to see?

Well, that's all for now. I gotta go get my pizza out of the oven. Ja ne!

EDIT: Got my pizza. Om nom.

More to talk about. I finally booked my tickets and am officially going to Ireland at the beginning of July. I hope the weather is nice ¬ ¬ 

My edelweiss are coming in nicely. I took a picture though I don't know how well you can see them. In real life the little green dots are, as [livejournal.com profile] lemiru  would say, glorious. I apparently did not inherit the 'everything I touch dies' thing that my mother seems to have at times. Hurrah!



Okay, now that really IS all.
