I Am A: Chaotic Neutral Human Bard (2nd Level)

Ability Scores:

Chaotic Neutral A chaotic neutral character follows his whims. He is an individualist first and last. He values his own liberty but doesn't strive to protect others' freedom. He avoids authority, resents restrictions, and challenges traditions. A chaotic neutral character does not intentionally disrupt organizations as part of a campaign of anarchy. To do so, he would have to be motivated either by good (and a desire to liberate others) or evil (and a desire to make those different from himself suffer). A chaotic neutral character may be unpredictable, but his behavior is not totally random. He is not as likely to jump off a bridge as to cross it. Chaotic neutral is the best alignment you can be because it represents true freedom from both society's restrictions and a do-gooder's zeal. However, chaotic neutral can be a dangerous alignment when it seeks to eliminate all authority, harmony, and order in society.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Bards often serve as negotiators, messengers, scouts, and spies. They love to accompany heroes (and villains) to witness heroic (or villainous) deeds firsthand, since a bard who can tell a story from personal experience earns renown among his fellows. A bard casts arcane spells without any advance preparation, much like a sorcerer. Bards also share some specialized skills with rogues, and their knowledge of item lore is nearly unmatched. A high Charisma score allows a bard to cast high-level spells.

(What Kind of Dungeons and Dragons Character Would You Be?)

Stolen from Abby.
You Are the Innovator

You're the type of person who is always a step ahead of everyone else.

You thrive when you're experimenting with new designs, ideas, and attitudes.

You are a creative person with many talents. You have to have artistic outlets in your life.

You need to create - whether it's writing furiously or redecorating your home. If not, your life becomes chaotic.

You tire of doing the same thing every day. You change your job, friends, and personal style often.

You are at your best when you have a focus. If not, you develop a flaky artist's temperament.

Oh, exams. This is the lull before the last hurrah. I've done five of seven exams, and now I just have one module of physics and one of chemistry - both resits. It's funny. In the US and Canada, it's quite uncommon to resit exams or repeat a year, to the extent where there's somewhat of a stigma attached to it. It's like you automatically lose your status as a 'good' kid or a 'smart' one the second you sign up for the next sitting of the exam. Strangely, even moreso than if you just accepted the failing grade and went and did something else. Is there some underlying assumption that the 'mature' thing to do is to follow on only doing those things for which you naturally have an aptitude? Why is it, that when we're told from infancy to try and try again no matter what happens, the expectation of us as adults is quite contrary to that. What, we hit puberty and suddenly 'Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results' supplants 'If at first you don't succeed, try and try again'? I don't get it.

Um. Rant above: possibly I'm just really, really anxious about the latest exam. Merciful dancing heavens above. That was rough. Like, reduced-to-tears rough. Like, made-me-question-my-validity-as-a-person rough. I wish I was exaggerating. But it's one of those things; from childhood, I've been 'the skinny one,' 'the smart one,' and I've grown up conforming to those two. It's been who I am, the mold into which I've poured the shapeless softness of my indistinct and uncertain psyche. I've built up a character which plays into those two. I just wish I wasn't reliant on them.

So a quiz result is in order.

Your result for The Steampunk Style Test...

The Ragamuffin

7% Elegant, 31% Technological, 27% Historical, 44% Adventurous and 71% Playful!

You are the Ragamuffin, the embodiment of steampunk playfulness. Chances are, you approach the genre from a much more casual and lighthearted standpoint than most other fans. To you, there is always an element of play inherent in the genre, and you may very well enjoy fashion as much for the opportunity to dress up as for the style itself. You probably wear goggles as an accessory, and rarely as actual eye-protection. Your outfits are likely to incorporate a lot of brown or cream, and combine large boots, Victorian corsets or vests, aviator caps or bowler hats, and gypsy skirts or slacks, simply because you like them all.

sc0urge: (angst)
Envy died last night. I knew he was dying. Last night I carried him to my parents' bedroom, where we all made a fuss of him, and stroked the fur on his head, remarked how he'd lost weight and fur, and gave him kisses on the nose.

I went into my room and lay in bed with him sitting on my chest, light as a feather and frail as dust. I couldn't feel the energy coming off him, like I could before. His paws were cold and stiff. I considered staying up all night like that, holding him, so that I could be there when he died, be with him to the last. After a while, close to midnight, I put him back in his cage. He curled up under his little cotton blanket, and, from my bed, I sang him a lullabye. Just before I drifted off to sleep, I told him that I loved him and was glad I got to have him as a pet.

When I woke up, I lifted his blanket and found him still. He had gone into rigor mortis already, so he must have died not long after I went to sleep. I took him downstairs, and he had one final fuss made of him, with more nose-kisses and head-strokings. Then we put him in a little tea box, and in just a little bit, he'll be buried next to Sloth.

And they can be together again, be it in a flower or an insect, or a tree. Or maybe there's a mouse afterlife, and the two of them are shredding newspaper and taking naps together as I write this.

(My maternal grandmother also died a few weeks back, but she was not under my care, and as such I feel no sense of guilt or loss over her. Besides, she was old as the hills and kind of scary. Because that's totally a reasonable justification for not caring.)
