"We're really scraping the bottom of the barrel here..."
Hellsing Ultimate Abridged episode 2 quote aside, tomorrow is my orientation day! Woot. Yep, got the call this afternoon asking for me to come in around 1 in the afternoon, meaning my only ride to work will have to take me around 7 am, drive an hour to there, then wait for another 5 before I get my employee badge and meeting...ugh
On an upside, I get to have an excuse to sit around looking like a badass reading stuff most of the people in that casino couldn't comprehend lol. I think I'll take my copy of "A Storm of Swords" and "Scandinavian Folk Lore" encyclopedia to keep me company...maybe I'll read them by the river since it's less than a hundred yards from the casino.
Anyway, been really thinking alot about a Pokemon fiction that deals mainly with a background character who explores many aspects of the canon pokemon (game) universe, including Mewtwo's origins, the politics of the Indego League and gyms, how Sakaki Giovanni became the bastard he is, etc. The OC of it was meant for a friend's Nuzlocke set 10 years before the events of the first game, which I may keep to, though the timeline will probably start around 30 years prior.
Not sure how much I'm into the idea but it might be fun to explore this character again, especially since the Origins OVA has been a mega inspiration (no pun intended for those who've seen it). If you want me to give it a shot I'll start with some character profiles and post them to my DA and link them here for anybody interested.
I'm just glad to start work, make money and finally start getting my life back in order.
