Holy crap, you guys. I made a Kane/Toews rec list. And it is HUGE.

Speaking of pairings I'm way too invested in, I encountered a Skyrim glitch the other day that actually worked in my favor. Many of the NPCs you meet in Skyrim you can marry if you're wearing the proper amulet and they're friends with you. For most of them, building a friendship is as easy as completing a quest related to them. The one character I had my eye on for a hubby, Quintus Navale, has two quests connected to him. I don't know why, but at some point I decided he was absolutely the one and only true love of my character. So when the game appeared to have glitched me out of obtaining his second quest (and thus removing my chance of marrying him), I was heartbroken.

I kept playing, though, and I bought a level-up perk that lets you invest in shops. Since Quintus is a shopkeeper, I figured I could at the very least show my platonic support of him. After I handed over 500 gold, though, a funny thing happened. I'd been wearing my Amulet of Mara for a while, just to see which characters were interested in me, and suddenly Quintus was one of them. Without ever getting his second quest. I don't know what flag got flipped incorrectly in the game or how, but investing in the shop turned him into a marriage prospect.

So I said I liked him. And we got married. And he's living in my house in Riften.

Seriously, I can't count the number of times I've had to reset because I sank into a mountain or a key item was knocked irretrievably behind a table or a quest item got stuck in my inventory... actually, that one's usually not fixable with resetting. I'm stuck with Finn's Lute and Pantea's Flute forever, it seems. Anyway, the point is, I'd never encountered a glitch I liked. Finally, the game's bugginess worked in my favor.

And yes, this means Nurelion's death never happened. He's still "asleep and dying" in The White Phial, while Quintus is baking me apple pies in Honeyside. Love it.

... I actually came close to crying with joy when I got to marry Quintus. I mean, I've sunk over 200 hours into my main character, and I'd been hoping to marry him for at least 150 of those. So. Happy.

Since I'm both mildly agoraphobic, which means staggering out to the post office is a daunting proposition, and lazy, I'm thinking no physical Christmas cards this year. This doesn't rule out cards altogether, though. I have a tablet and an internet connection. Let's do this.

Christmas/Hanukkah/Yule/Just-Another-Day-for-a-Nihilist cards!

1) Comment on this entry with a prompt of some sort.
2) Wait.
3) Receive something stupid and scribbly like this:

or this:

in your inbox at some point soon.
4) Check back here on 12/25 to see all the abominations I've crafted for other people in celebration of the holidays.

Aaaaand... go.

First off, happy belated birthday to Cathos!

I should be putting together a presentation right now, but bah! Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] anglepoiselamp, it's meme time! List the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. )
