Aargh, LiveJournal, why are you failing to send me my comment notifications? I kind of depend on those lately. A lot.

Anyhoo, I keep meaning to talk about this, and just...not. I received my Remix/Redux assignment a while ago. I'm kind of at a loss. I feel kind of bad for saying this, but the author I was assigned to? Not so great, to put it mildly. It's not just a question of grammar, mechanics, and style, either. I could work around that; after all the whole purpose is to rewrite someone else's story. No, the thing is, you aren't supposed to significantly change the basic plot. I'm not going to get into details, because this is secret until the reveal, but let us just say that I have some major issues with most of the stories I've read by this person. I know I can come up with something (and I have plenty of time to do so), but it's likely going to be some generic thing that I'll loathe, because my heart wasn't in it.

I'm disappointed because I had been looking forward to this so. Depending on who I was assigned to, it could have been just awesome. Alas. I suppose that's just how it goes sometimes.

I've been replaying FFVI again, since of course I had to buy the Gameboy Advance port they put out. I randomly feel the urge to write fic for it. Hmm. I guess we'll see if anything comes of that. (Not really related, but the PSP port of Suikoden I & II needs to get an English release. Yeah, I own the original Playstation games, but it'd be really nice to have them in portable format, not to mention the fact that the availability of the originals is like non-existent. You know people would buy it. [Even less related, but I mean to do a Suikoden pimp post one of these days. I need to figure out how to rip my game discs for use with emulators, though. ...It's probably not difficult. I'm just lazy.])

And I really should be working on my flashfic right now, not updating my journal, so...*gone*
