Jones Party Hat

New Dorm!

I got that room change I wanted. I’m in a half-double now. Meaning that I live alone now, but if they assign me a roommate, I’m not allowed to say no. So, on one hand, GLEE. But on the other hand, I’m kinda screwed. Well, if I get someone who isn’t loud about everything and is willing to STFU while I study, I see no reason to throw a fit.

Mediation was, for lack of a better word, interesting. Around the time it started, I could tell things weren’t going to go well because ex-roommate kept bringing up her personal problems that had nothing to do with the task at hand. Because of confidentiality, I can’t go in too far, but basically she started enumerating all her problems (none of which were connected to me), started crying, then stormed off. Me and the RA just looked at each other and were like, “… Well, that sucked.” Mom said that it probably made me look a lot better for her to freak out than for me to start bitching.

Got help bringing all my stuff to the new dorm too. My hallmates are soooo cool.

I’m adjusting really well here. I’m not gonna lie.

Also, I’ve been working more on Matchstick. I’m concerned that the plot is kind of veering off, but it was never really a story so much as the aftermath OF a story. But I got some new ideas during HST-348, in addition to the notes I took earlier that day, so lets see how this goes. The fic isn’t really supposed to be creepy like Silent Hill, but more like Silence of the Lambs. It’s supposed to disturb, not frighten. I’ve got one scene that’s kind of surreal, and that’s what I’m going for.

The second chapter of Torch is already typed up- has been, since the summer- but I feel like adding more college experience to it. Just seems like it would make it more real.

“Why is it So Dark in Here?” has a bit more updates, but nothing concrete yet. I’m debating whether or not the sleepover Kairi mentioned should be a love confession, implied sex, a lemon, a lime, a lime with implied sex, or absolutely nothing. I think it depends on where the dialogue goes.

I’ve got maybe five lines on that other AU Shelkero oneshot. It’s not that I’m tapped, I just haven’t had the time to do anything. The weekend is coming though, so I’ll try to do something there.

The genderswap!AU!WeissxNero is interesting, but I don’t see them as Weiss and Nero anymore. Weiss is hard to write as is, being that he has no personality other than what fans assign him, but Nero as a girl is even harder because, and this sounds odd considering Nero, but he’s very masculine. Not masculine, like G.I. Joe. Masculine like Hamlet was masculine. And Weiss is even worse. I’m almost considering making ONLY ONE of them girls, or just giving them both their manly bits back, but the latter takes the fun out of it for me and the former would leave me indecisive about who gets to be the man.
