Good News: I have a laptop again! Hurray! :icondummyplz:

Bad News:
It's a new one. And not everything that was on the old one is on this new one.

It's the same model, but the PC World people (or 'KnowHow' as they call themselves) couldn't get the old one to run properly, even when they replaced all the socket components and battery, AND got a new charger cable, because a lot of the internal components had been.

Luckily, I was insured, so it cost essentially diddly squit to have them do all this. But when it came to the hard-drive, they couldn't copy across everything, because the fan was faulty too, which was a thing I didn't even know about, because my laptop's fan was quiet normally and it worked just fine.

This means I've been installing Photoshop, my Steam games, Audacity, Hamachi, my university wi-fi enabler program (I don't know exactly what you'd call such a thing, but that's what it does), and various other extraneous things, onto my new laptop for various chunks of today.

It also means a good few of my files were lost.

Some of which included doodles and pictures sent over Skype, most of which there was only one copy, old copies of stuff I posted on dA, the finalised :iconwalkingcityoct: Audition script, and the audition files themselves in Photoshop.

CAN YOU FEEL MY INTERNAL SCREAMING. IT IS A RAGE THAT CANNOT BE QUELLED OR QUIETENED. YOU SHALL HEAR IT WHEN THE NIGHT IS STILL AND CALM, AND FEEL IT WHEN ALL OTHER FEELINGS ABANDON YOU.

The closest I have to what the audition was before my old laptop spontaneously died is a slightly obsolete script, and an old copy of a half-sketched version of the first part of the audition.


CAN YOU FEEL IT NOW?!




So, stomping frustration-fuelled drama aside, here's what I plan on doing.

I want to finish that audition, and make it a Spectator Entry.

Granted, this won't undo the fact :iconpokesam: and I can't properly enter Walking City, especially now that auditions have closed, nor will it be done anywhere near immediately, because of the aforementioned setbacks, and my current hurricane of IRL shit.

But it'll prove that hells yeah we were planning to enter, and it'll mean that we will have something come out of this that we can be at least halfway proud of.

Would you guys be interested in seeing that?

Would you, Sammy, be interested in that?

Just wanna gauge interest/opinion.

On Wednesday, in the middle of a university seminar, the battery/charger cable decided to shit itself and partly cause slight wreckage of the charger socket in the process. Which meant it wouldn't allow the laptop to charge battery, so it couldn't run.

Fun times.

Took it to PC World to get it fixed a couple of days ago. It'll be back sometime after the 17th, but not sure when. And I may not be able to do a lot on it other than uni work, cos shit's hotting up.

This means that Sammy and I cannot enter :iconwalkingcityoct:, because the audition files were on there. Good job, me.

So yeah, super sorry to let everyone down, especially :iconpokesam: my partner, as she was super pumped about Walking City.

As was I, to be fair, but she was depending on me, and I can't help but feel I let her down. Along with you guys, who were waiting to see our audition that we'd poured our love and blood and sweat and tears into.

Why am I posting this now? Cos I forgot to post on here, despite throwing what happened at my Tumblr and saying there I'd post on here. Mobile Internet on my phone doesn't work so well with dA.

I'm posting this from my university's library, as now that's the only computery sort of thing I have access to, besides my phone.

Also university is kicking my arse.

Ugh.

Sorry everyone.

OC Reference: Lady Ericka by The-Land-Shark
OC Reference: Lady Ericka
WELL THIS TOOK ME A WHILE. WAY LONGER THAN IT SHOULD'VE. (and yet its still cluttered as anything haha)

But yeah; here's one of my newest characters, the Lady Ericka Morgensternigenigen.

(I'm entering her in :iconwalkingcityoct: with :iconpokesam:. She posted her OC ages ago and she's been super patient and super wonderful and I'M SORRY SAMMY I'M WORKING ON THE THING I PROMISE I AM I'M JUST A PIECE OF SHIT AT THE MOMENT)

That aside, here's all the missing stuff the ref refers to:

:bulletwhite:BACKGROUND:bulletwhite:

Born to the Queen of the Elves of the Equiline Forests in the land of Orgadia, who was known for her isolationist policies and rather brutal treatment of outsiders (due to Orgadia's increasing industrialisation meaning that many forests were destroyed, thus sparking tensions between those who dwelt within them and those who did not), Ericka found herself eventually stifled by her mother and sought to journey beyond the forests of her home. Her chance came when an expedition led by Lord Thomas Morgensternigenigen found its way into the Equiline Forests. Lord Thomas helped to save her from a rogue pack of savage direwolves, and saw her home safely. While initially met with scrutiny and judgment, relations between the Elves and the outsider cooled when Ericka intervened, using Thomas' selfless actions against the direwolves to prove to her mother that those who lived beyond the forests were not solely concerned with destruction, as had been previously believed. Ericka was permitted to venture out of the forest as a diplomat to surrounding settlements

:bulletwhite:CONCERNING LORD THOMAS MORGENSTERNIGENIGEN:bulletwhite:

The husband of our heroine, Lord Thomas is a famed explorer in Orgadia. He is intelligent and easy to get along with, but a little eccentric, and overly enthusiastic and curious about the new and the possibility of the new. Regardless of this, his love with Ericka and his caring for her is a strong and mutual set of feelings, and their marriage only cements their bonds with one another. He was last seen three months ago by Ericka, before he vanished on a solo expedition that he insisted was urgent, and would have “grave consequences” if he failed to succeed at something whilst on said expedition. Concerning this quest of his, he was observed by Ericka seemed obsessive and frantic. Ericka herself has ventured forth, armed with some remnants of his notes concerning the solo expedition and his intentions, to find her husband and bring him home to the Morgensternigenigen estate.

:bulletwhite:INFORMATION REGARDING HER JOURNEY TO THE WALKING CITY:bulletwhite:

Her relationship with her partner Tatters is a very freshly formed friendship based both on convenience and compassion. As fascinated as she is by Tatters' very existence (i.e. him being a robot), she is also somewhat maternal towards him, and seeks to teach him about the world, and how to compose himself in terms of politeness and etiquette.

Her satchel notes, in this case, contain scraps of information that Ericka is now aware of concerning the Walking City. The information itself is as follows, abridged for your convenience:

->The entranceway to the Walking City works via random interdimensional gateways that are invisible, one of with frequents spots around and in the Morgensternigenigen estate roughly every two to four months. Lord Thomas has managed to create a probability chart to calculate as best he can when and where this portal will next appear.
->This gateway only lets through one person at a time. Others let in more, but Thomas hasn't encountered them yet.
->Lord Thomas has gone to find the Walking City. He encountered the gateway first, before learning about the Walking City itself. He then managed to piece together that the city and the gateway were connected.
->Lord Thomas must not fail to complete his objective (whatever it may be).
He left that night not to risk wasting any time in beginning his quest.
