So, okay. Bought a game at a JB Hi-Fi and first things first, got ripped off upon finding out I bought a game that someone has used the activation code of (this wasn't mentioned as pre-owned, by the way. Just on the normal shelves). And bought it on full price. What the hell. If I'm not able to use the game - which is on Steam (and therefore doesn't allow pre-owned things to be bought again), someone's seriously getting it.
Read some old fanfic
of mine I've nearly forgotten about and started having plenty of feels.
It's sad that I was sifting happily through some Portal memes lately and one blog was answering a question of who the blogger's favorite OTP was: my mind was personally automatically answering it too, only with the worst answer ever
. Damn. I'm in adoration with this non-human, adorkable, bumbling cloudcuckoolander idiot who turns out to be an irresponsible, self-centered, entitled, traitorous jerk-ass. And unfortunately this one doesn't get ejected into space as a punishment for his behavior. Huh.
Moving on to brighter and greener pastures, I'm actually considering writing fanfic for Portal. I have this one-shot I wanted to write but getting the character voices is harder than I thought. Maybe Wheatley is easiest - due to his role, he's really quite uncomplicated
. GlaDOS is particularly difficult though. I'm not as smart and good with scathing comments as she is. And the variety of Chell interpretations out there over-complicates the player character. She's so malleable because we don't get to see much of her reactions and I have uncertainties on what my headcanon personality of hers is. The fandom has already got plenty of amazing fanfics too so I'm not really sure what my writing is going to add. But I'm gonna try because I'm just itching
to get this story out of my system. Hint: it's based off of this
And I've got another test tomorrow. On Histology! My worst subject. I still haven't studied! I'm dead!
