TITLE: Purple - Red = Blue
FANDOM: WoW
PEOPLE: Jaina and Aethas, primarily.
PAIRING: None, really.
RATING: PG-ish.
WARNINGS: If you actually like how the game canon is you'll probably get all madpants at me for making fun of it. :D But if you don't, this may entertain you. Hey, I like making nonsensical shit make sense. Silk purse out of a sow's ear, if you will!
NOTES: SHE'S PEEING ON CANON'S RUG AGAIN

So yeah lol I got sick of the hackery and decided to work within the boundaries of canonical events to SOME extent, but make things make fucking sense and keep people IC as I did so. And then this happened. Takes place after the stupid bell crap (which ended differently because I don't feel the urge to be edgy and grimdark). JAINA DISAPPROVES OF PORTAL macro goes here!

So the background: Theramore still got pwnt, BUT there is no lol realityhole, and it got pwnt in a manner that was less contrived. There were minimal casualties (and none on the civilian front)--although a certain carrot-top mage is comatose as a result of the arcane backlash, as are most of the other folks who were too close when everythang splod. (There's only so much one can do with a lot of hungry Felhunters and some hardcore counterspell-shields.) Jaina's roaring rampage of revenge was Garrosh-centric (everybody else just got ice-blocked or teleported to Stonard) and she beat the pants off him and let him live because she knows he has a fragile little ego and it'd be painful for him to live with being owned by a giiirrrllll wweh. XD

Anyway :B Have some Jaina being a badass fucking diplomat. BECAUSE SHE IS. Eat me, Blizzard.

This is one of the few times you'll see me acknowledge canon.

So tonight I finished up leveling my noobie Draenei pally Jayalaksmi through Azuremyst and Bloodmyst and Wyrmscar and that island with all the orange and pink naga on it! And--

--Yeah, this and Silvermoon are definitely my favourite levelling zones. Even when it's obvious they crowbar'd the class quests out, even though a lot of the trickier quests have been made less so by the de-leetification of some NPCs (Matis the Drama Llama comes to mind--Knucklerot and Luzran are still elites, but Mattyboy is not). They're lovely, lovely zones, and they have some very solid storytelling (excluding the HUEHAHAEHUEUEAHUHAHUHEUAHUE KAEL CREZZEH NAO bullshit, which was never explained or written competently--honestly, I went through these zones keeping my girlfriend's AU in mind, and everything makes so damned much more sense that way), the quest rewards are nice, there's no phasing glitches to worry about...mmmmyeah.

Oh, and there's much less demented timeline whiplash. Yes, I know that stagnation means death, etc., and that the old world HAD to change...but I still think Cataclysm made some shockingly poor choices. Pandaria is better in some respects, but in others it makes the same mistakes as Cata only more so.

Anyway...

The 'Myst isles also lack the NPC whiplash you can get around Silvermoon that I've seen. Clicking on Lor'themar after doing the one quest wherein you do Dead Scar Soil Analysis and the quest giver says "Eff this we need to get to Outland tout suite kthxbai"? Yeah, THAT'S FUN. And the NPCs in the Blood Knights' hall still natter on about M'uru...

...But I digress!

I had a hell of a lot of fun levelling Jayalaksmi from 1-21. It's really neat to have a character sort of come into their own in your mind theatre as you go along.

This incidentally is what led to me rolling her shaman girlfriend Darzana, whom I also plan to level. That is--in between levelling Aerionn to 90 and trying to get the recoloured bronze-and-silver Valor set for Ishan. Look mom I'm transmog-happy.

In closing, Draenei are adorable, and Kessel having named his Elekk Archimindy will never stop being awesome.

...That Balnazzar is the laziest Dreadlord in the universe.



(LOOK IT'S CRACK THEORY TIME :D)



"HEY, I'VE GOT THIS UNDEAD ARMY OF FORMER HUMAN-BOOSTING RACIST ZEALOTS NOW. FUCK YEAH IRONY." *loiters in strat* "I'm hilarious."



Yeah I know he's supposed to be readying for some big attack, and his Risen (who probably still call him "Saidan Dathrohan" and drive him insane with such) are supposed to be a bigger threat than the Scourge because Balnazzar won't hold back etc. (even though they're squishy as BALLS...)



But--then you go into Strat and they're holed up in their bastion and guarding the front doors with a barricade and...uh...I think Balnazzar is less concerned with making a big army than he is concerned with having an army that can fend off things that may potentially come and eat him, i.e. he's pulling an Illidan move but he's being a far bigger doucheyacht about it and also not doing a very successful job.



Either that or my initial assumption is the truth--that is, he's just really lazy. Strat is a good place for a lazy Dreadlord. It's nice and flamey so it'd remind him of home, and there's lots of wandering ectoplasmic stuff to snack on...he has minions, he's got a nice swanky throne room...



Yeah. Balnazzar is not making an army and planning an attack. He's either keeping other Dreadlords off his lawn, or he's being a couch potato. XD

THIS IS WHAT I DO WHEN MY DEAREST BADASS PRINCESS KYLBEANS ISN’T THERE TO MAKE SURE I BEHAVE:


-go to tanaris

-enter caverns of time

-enter old strat

-say hi to chromie!

-hug hearthsinger forresten! and everybody in that inn! (pamela ;n;)

-locate crates for chromie!

-ride off into the mist as far as possible, laughing maniacally, until you hit the invisiwall!

-futz around doing this for a good twenty minutes, still laughing maniacally

-get bored with the eerie pink minty-fresh chronological mist o’ doom and head for strat proper…

-…while looking in every house…

-…and making up a song about eerie pink minty-fresh chronological aerosol pepto-bismol!

-jump into moat and swim to see if one can swim under the invisiwall (nope, denied)

-hug chromie and turn in quest and start RP event!

-hug jaina and uther

-click on jaina a lot and sigh when she has only two clicky lines and uther has none

-hug arthas, then follow arthas

-click on arthas, sigh over his VA not being as good as the WC3 fellow, click on arthas again anyway

-click on arthas repeatedly

-click on arthas repeatedly

-click on arthas repeatedly

-CLICK ON ARTHAS LIKE A MAD FIEND AND ANNOY THE TANKING-PLATE PANTS OFF HIM, LAUGHING MANIACALLY ALL THE WHILE

-realize arthas is a total leeroy intent on pulling everything under the sun ever, sigh, and allow self to be taken out by zombie scrummage

(WoW is not as much fun without my gorgeous girlfriend afoot XD I can still amuse myself (because I have ADHD and we’re like that), but…THEN I DO STUFF LIKE THIS XD Arthas is going to bink me to death with his smackin’ hammer.)

Subtitle: Look, Mommy, Yukie is a Paladin

Blizzard is still being stupid as hell and this latest bout of hackish amateur-tastic lols hasn't impressed me at all SO YOU GET MY THOUGHTS ON WRITAN

My usual disclaimer applies: I'm explaining my rationale here. People who do stuff differently than me are neither nimrods nor stanky (unless they are Blizzard's usual flock of writers, in which case they are nimrods, stanky, and deserving of defenestration). Everyone has their own reasons for writing the stuff they do; I'm just running through my reasons for doing what I do here, as well as debunking what I feel are common fallacious argument type things.

Hokay. So.

things! THINGS! and more things! )

why did you have to give me another race of nifty, gender-ambiguous, ancient, snarky, cantankerous arthropod people to squee about.

(though, your writer should've totally had them call the PC 'biped'... XD)

Now I wanna write Anub'arak and some of the Klaxxi having a big philosophical debate. :B

ETA: LORE SPOILARS in DW comments, proceed at own risk.
