So for my creative writing scholarship submission, I think I’m going to write a short story based on a playthrough of this game Crusader Kings 2. I decided to make a new character: Morgana Kerne of Brittany. She is taking the place of Haesteinn of Nantes, who was a historical Viking chieftain who occupied the city of Nantes for a few years in the 860s and 870s. In this game, I’m positing he died of his wounds or something, so this badass is taking over. She’s a Breton Chieftess (Bretons are the indigenous Celtic inhabitants of Brittany in NW France), she observes the Norse religion, she’s ok with her money, has a big scar on her face which gives her prestige bonuses, is a hedonist, lustful, patient, cynical and deceitful. In my brain, she goes into battle with two hand axes and a longbow and her words are “Lightning doesn’t usually strike twice, but I do.” and then puts both axes in noble skulls! WAAHAHHAHAHAH Basically, She and her dynasty will hopefully be the scourge of the Catholic Atlantic and the Mediterranean nobility and merchant republics. She’s going to support heretics, peasant revolts, try to interfere with the Crusades and the Reconquista and do her best to make sure the Norse religion can stand fast against the depredations of Christianity. Plus, tons of princes and kings and priests will be sacrified at Blots! woo hoo! LOL! I’m not sure what’s going to happen when the Aztecs invade (that can happen in this game if you want it to! it’s an alternate history simulation!) and same goes with the Mongols. Depends on what kind of Europe we’ve built. I wish the game engine could better simulate peasant revolts and movements and even anti-capitalist stuff, but alas, it *is* called Crusader Kings, LOL. Anyway, just thought I’d post this cuz it’s fun. ^___^

ugh, zombie apocalypse literature

ah yes, lovely. i’ve reached that part of reading zombie fiction where the white guy gets two girls in his bed, the asian dude finds a katana and knows how to use it immediately (they’re totally just laying out in the open and we often trip over them in our rural hikes and wilderness ventures, no?), the latino sets up a farm, and there’s no black people anywhere. done and deleting this garbage. too bad it’s like, the 30th short story or novel like this. gross. maybe we should write anarchist and leftist zombie apocalypse fiction. half this crap makes me feel like i’m reading the Stephenie Meyer sequel to the Turner Diaries.

what if real life were like tumblr and everyone got offended over absolutely everything and the only jokes you would be able to make would be about shrek the third

I know right like what if oppression actually existed and it bothered people
