Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I spent Thanksgiving morning playing Mass Effect 2 DLCs. And I will say only this about Overlord: If it does NOT break your heart, or at least hurt it, then you are probably a heartless bastard. Then I spent most of the afternoon writing fanfic that's related to ME2 (but not Overlord.) Will probably post a rough draft for people to see later, because I don't have time to edit it right now. Thanksgiving dinner is in about a half-hour and I hate to keep people waiting.

Several things make a post, or something.

- Eh. NaNoWriMo was a no-go. Losing those ten days in the middle of the month to frenzied house-cleaning and moving killed it. Maybe next year... I'm going to keep trying to finish something throughout the end of the year, assuming I can keep my head.

- Working on my story for the end of the month. I know how I want it to end; it's the getting there that's the problem. As usual. There are several other things I want to write, like a continuation of last year's tale for my recipient of last year. It'll depend on how long it takes me to finish my main story. One thing I like about how the exchange is set up this year, it makes it easy to write extra treats.

- In RL news... Currently sitting at home, going back to work in a little bit. This is my workweek from hell, of course. Retail =/= fun. Also waiting to hear something from my boyfriend, who is on a plane right now and safely heading toward his destination, I hope. He said he'd let me know when he hit his first connecting airport, but he hasn't. I hate flying with an irrational passion and would feel a lot better if he'd just contact me soon.
(Edit: His phone's apparently dead; his sister just e-mailed me from her phone. They've gotten through the airlines. Now they get to drive up to their grandmother's house. And I get to go back to work.)

- And yes, I've heard about the new TSA safety regulations. The fact that one has to choose between potentially invasive patdowns and potentially dangerous scanners angers me. However, take that with a grain of salt; I haven't actually experienced either yet. Because I'm poor, and also hate flying.

I haven't actually finished Mass Effect - I have all of the party members and I've finished the plot-important events in Feros and Noveria. I'm stalling before I go to Virmire, because since I played ME2 first, I know what happens there. So I'm finishing sidequests and helping out my crew before I go there.

So these thoughts are less about plot, so far, and more about gameplay. There are things in each game that I like, and there are things that I wish had been in both games. Overall I like the series; most of these are fairly small things. (I should read the novels at some point... I'd play the cell phone game too, just for the plot, if I had a phone that could actually play games. :p)

Spoilers for both Mass Effect games, especially the second. )

I've been trying to post this for days. I keep falling asleep at the times when I could use this computer. I think there was more to it, but I can't remember all of it anymore.

I really liked Mass Effect 2. I keep wanting to post a more detailed thing about my impressions of it, but I keep failing. For now, I really enjoyed it and I want to play the first one.

Speaking of playing the second game without playing the first...

ME2, non-imported games, and narrative tropes that I like. Spoilers. )

Normally don't post these here, but at least one person who reads this journal and not my IJ is interested in this game, so yeah.

Mass Effect 2 - Maybe 60% in (but which 60%?) )
