So I played my first d&d session in about a year today. It was uber fun and lated about 10 hours (including character rolling and breaks). We were on such a long hiatus because we lost one of our dungeon masters and a bunch of the players. We totally have an awesome group together now. (during break I entertained them with fandom horror stories, they were simultaneously horrified and amused bu it).

 I pulled out a character I used from one of my games last year a basirian dance aventi. (So a character sort of like a swashbuckling bard, who is also a fish person). Who I am working towards a spirit dancer (Yay for ghost familiars!) I had a ton of fun with this character the lat time around. This time around I think it wont be nearly as fun.

As much as I love our new DM he let three members of the group be half dragons. On top of that all of them are cross classing (one is a monk/rouge, the other a ranger/sorcerer) so they get crazy ability points strength feat and pretty much everything else. Which would be fine, but now the DM has to level adjust everything so they won't get killed in one hit. To put this in perspective the average hit points for the half dragons is 70ish, mine is 46, their average skill roll is a 20 mine a 6-10. Their crit attack is around 60 mine is 25.
In the first two battles we encountered I was killed within the first three rounds.

So while I love my character dearly and he has an interesting backstory and talking with the dead is wonderful fun for the plot, I might have to re roll a new character in some class and race that can compete with what everyone else has :(

[personal profile] waldorph asked an interesting question that got my brain churning she asked “Why do you ship who you ship? No, for real. Why Dean/Castiel? Or Kirk/Spock? Or...you know, you people who are mentally impaired who ship Kirk/McCoy...I want to know why. In more than a sentence.

On shipping in fandoms )

So a couple days ago I saw episode 3X11 birthday of Angel. I was immediately taken with the episode. We see a glimpse of an alternate universe where Cordelia never met Angel in L.A. Then we find out that the ramifications are that Angel is stuck with Doyle’s visions. I love AU (Alternate Universe) stories and I love angst. So obviously this was one of my favorite episodes ever. We have Wesley who has lost an arm! And anAngel who has been driven almost insane due to visions! I have refrained from reading any Buffy or Angel fanfiction up to this point! But the promise of Angsty AU fics won me over. I immediately set out to find fics focusing on the Alternate Reality in the episode Birthday. I was surprised when I barely found any. I come form the Stargate fandom where when there was one AU character (Rod) who came onto the show it spawned a whole new category of fics called Mensa AU fics. So when I couldn’t find many fics for the birthday episode I was disappointed. I guess I have grown used to AU’s. I know in many fandoms AU’s are despised because they generally suck. I find that for Stargate AU’s work better. There are many different kinds of AU’s in the Stargate Fandom as well. There are AU (Contemporary setting), AU (Historical or pseudo historical), AU (Quantum mirror), and AU (includes Stargate program) among others. I have gotten used to have an abundance of well written AU’s at my fingertips and the fact that other fandoms don’t have as many well written AU’s upsets me! If I am unable to find more Episode tags (Fanfiction that is centered around a certain episode) to the Angel episode birthday I might be forced to write one myself!

I haven’t actually searched all of Livejournal yet for groups but hopefully I will find more Birthday based fics somewhere! I need my angsty AU’s! Here are the fics I have already found. If you know of any more pleas let me know.
