Whelp, I learned something today; if you’re choking on a piece of beef, you can use the thread of sinew causing you to choke to pull out the obstruction. Also, the importance of thoroughly chewing your food so you don’t have little threads of fat / connective tissue to choke on in the first place.
Trying to get a better grasp of Thales’ personality… I feel like she’s been trending more towards that “surly, apathetic chick” character type that I, really, just don’t like. The trouble is, I’m not sure if this is because I don’t entirely understand who she is as a character… or if I’m just not finding a way to portray those qualities correctly. It could well be both, honestly, I don’t know! I feel like I know who I want her to be, though - someone who’s brave, hard-working, and quick to learn, if naive, stubborn and rash. (Pretty typical hero fair, when you think about it. In fact, I’d say most of my characters are more “heroic” than my actual hero!) Throw in some horse motifs, awkward, barely-there romance and some jokes about her being a rebellious teenager in the Stormcloak Rebellion, and you should be good. So… why am I having such trouble getting into her head?
On a somewhat related note, I feel like I’m at the point where I have enough followers to merit making an about me page or something… I’ll jump at he chance to talk about my characters and random thoughts, but I haven’t really said that much about myself.
In fact, I try to avoid it. On the other hand, though… I could probably summarize myself pretty accurately with just one line: “I’m a chick who likes games, fantasy settings and gay guys.” XD

… you sure about that, game?
Now to spend the next few hours trying to figure out why Rae’s face looks wrong, despite being pretty much the exact same as before.
At some point, in some fantasy universe, I’m going to have to make a guild of clerics and paladins named the “Amber Lances”. Because that’s just the kind of person I am.
