The Noob 22

My Legends of the Dark Tower captions are all about taking Arlayne seriously, and exploring what it would actually be like to live in a fantasy RPG.  That means acknowledging that fantasy worlds are violent, ugly places, full of ravenous monsters, bands of violent bandits, and armies engaging in constant warfare against each other.  The inevitable result of living in such a violent world, unfortunately, is that peaceful villagers like the ones in Lakeshore would occasionally get caught in the crossfire.

The Noob is not as violent as Final Girl or Subject Twenty-Four.  But it's hard to write a series like this without acknowledging that terrible things would happen in this world.

The Noob 21

OMG, this was such a bad caption for me to have to post today.  I always review my captions before I post them; reading this one made me cry.  Again.  I'm so sick of crying right now.

I'm not in a good place right now.  But I'm going to try to keep posting anyway.  It's so easy for me to want to stop doing... anything.  To let grief swallow me up.  I need to keep moving.  As hard as that is right now.

Diary - Break

My boyfriend, M, broke up with me last night.

I'm not ready to talk about it.  My hands are still shaking as I write this.  I didn't sleep last night.  I cried until I couldn't cry anymore and then I couldn't sleep.

This is the first time I've ever broken up with someone.  I don't know how to do this.  I don't know how to leave someone.  I don't know how to move on...

I'll be okay.  But right now I'm really, really, really not okay.

CK Loves LL

Because it's weird that all of Superman's love interests and his mortal foe all have the initials LL, right?  It's weird.

I grew up reading Superman comics, so this was a fun caption to write.

The Noob 18

As of this series, we're a third of the way through The Noob.  Told you it was a long series. :)

I considered having Arthelion call Evan by a different name here... but, because he's not from Earth, he wouldn't necessarily know that "Evan" is a man's name, so I just decided to let him call Evan "Evan."
