The third time’s the charm–for the third time! Digital Storm has done it again! (Review of my Digital Storm Bolt III PC)

I’m quite a happy camper today, my friends. My new desktop PC came in today, and it seems to be working very well! As my previous two purchases were, this one was from Digital Storm, and I’m as pleased with my third DS machine as I was with the previous two. Let me give you […]

Writing Log #11: A bit of discouragement, a bit of encouragement

First of all, HAPPY AMERICA DAY! 😀 😀 😀 😀 In less happy news, however…uuurgh, I haven’t been able to write as much as I’d hoped. It’s not a total loss–I’ve been managing a steady 2000 words per day for the past week, which is certainly better than nothing. It’s not quite the 5000 words […]

Evil’s Not Fun

I’ve been playing a lot of Grand Theft Auto V recently. This won’t be a full review of that game; I’ll just leave you with an overview of my thoughts on it. It’s fun, but I don’t think it really deserves the 10/10s it’s been getting. The writing and humor are excellent, and some of […]

Quickshot Thoughts on the Ys Series

I have a soft spot for all the games I played in my childhood. They were symbols of friendship between me and my very best friend in all the world. He is, in many ways, largely responsible for the man I am now—at least, for whatever good characteristics I possess. Thanks to him I learned […]

Author’s Notes for “The Confessor”

Next week, I will be posting the sixth and final chapter for one of my smaller fics on FFn, “The Confessor.” It takes place on the continent of Jugdral, in the world of Fire Emblem 4. It’s actually only the second FE4 fic I’ve written, despite FE4 being probably my favorite Fire Emblem and the […]


No ruminations on fanfiction today, my friends. This entry is going to be on something a little different, inspired by a somewhat unhappy event which occurred just Wednesday night. We’ll be back to our normal schedule next week, though I must warn you I’m almost done with my fanfic-related entries—that I have in my backlog, […]

Gunlord’s Perspectives on Writing an “Epic” fanfic

Wayward Son was started on August 31, 2006. In just under two months, it will be the seventh year I have been working on this story. Over the course of those seven years, Wayward Son has grown far, far larger than I ever intended it to. At the moment, it is 780, 583 words long, […]

Review of my new computer, the Digital Storm Bolt

1: Personal Background Since reviews are meant to assist other potential buyers, I figure my readers would appreciate a little personal background on me, to get an impression of what sort of buyer is giving this (glowing) review of Digital Storm. While I play videogames quite a bit, I’m actually not a “hardcore” gamer, I […]

Why (not) Fire Emblem?

Oddly enough, this will be the longest post I’ve put up here so far. It’s over four thousand words long—I’m breaking my own rule about having short entries! I do hope it’s worth it, though, since it involves issues I’ve brought up in two previous posts. I have not-so-subtly implied that I’m no longer a […]
