Subject? We don't need no steenkin' subject!

Happy birthday to samson28

I have just deleted my Greatest Journal. I'm fed up with getting comment spam and it's not like I ever use it these days. Although I am seriously less than thrilled about the sale of LiveJournal to a Russian oligarch it would be Insane Journal that I flee to if it comes down to it. I might not be using Insane Journal much but then I'm not spending anything like as much time on LiveJournal as I used to either.

One of the main reasons is that I've finally managed to get BGTutu working. It's a program that allows you to play the original Baldur's Gate game with the Baldur's Gate 2 engine. Vastly improved screen resolution, dual wielding, extra character classes; it adds a lot to the original game and I'm replaying it from the beginning. The only problem with BGTutu is a habit that it has of crashing on entry to, or exit from, Beregost; and corrupting the saves in the area where the crash happened. I was halfway through the game when I made the mistake of bringing all my saves up to date in Beregost and they all ended up corrupted. I had to start again from the beginning. This time I'm running multiple saves, only one of which is ever a Beregost save, and hopefully I won't end up in the same position again.

I am writing as well, of course; I'm most of the way through the next 'Tabula Avatar' chapter and I'm just about to write a certain long-awaited scene. I plan to finish off 'Life, Resumed' as a Xmas present to those who followed it; I do have a problem in that my beta Curious Wombat said that my planned ending was silly and made no sense, thereby derailing the whole project, and I haven't thought up any alternative yet. Hopefully something will come to me as I write. An alternative would be continuing 'Sunnydale Passions'. I stalled on that because the next chapter was supposed to pivot on a biological quirk of the kangaroo; except that I was going from memory and when I checked up on the facts I found that the quirk in question applies only to wallabies. I have an idea as to how I can get around it, by having a character make the same mistake that I made and then Skippy setting him right, but any loss of writing momentum always causes long delays in my writing. I haven't been able to think of anything at all as a Xmas short this year. Although I did have a thought about a BtVS/Robbie the Reindeer crossover...
