God damn it. I hate Orange and now Sky.

Orange dialup dies in December. It's really really *cough* nice of them to upgrade me to broadband with no hassle, but I have no clue wether 6gb limit is enough (it should be but I'm dumb, playing AVP2 may effect it), plus with any broadband ISP my laptop will be internet less unless I get it fixed.

Sky got my hopes up, the stupid (censored). I could of got a 6gb speed (that's my max for my area apparently)/40gb limit, for only a fiver added to my Sky TV payments. I was all ready to sign up, and I got to the one off payment of 30 part which I was prepared to pay. Guess what.. please enter your credit/debit card details. 0_0 Wtf, I have my direct debit details, I didn't think it would be much trouble to add the 30 pound to that, just the once..

So that's out, I'm screwed.. stuck with Orange cos I can't find another ISP that doesn't have a nice ickle setup charge, with a decent price, that's not called Tiscali.

Somebody who knows stuff about broadband, please tell me:

Is Orange ok? Will I ever use a 6gb limit if I play on an internet game like avp2 and download a few music tracks/small programs everynow and then. Also not forgetting uploading updates to websites, if I ever do that again.

Pfft, this should of gone into rants. The bright side to this is that I don't have to phone up Orange to cancel. Now I'm just worried that their 11.99 charge will shoot up to 20 or something after a certain time. I know it wont be 12 for any longer than a month.

Must lighten the topic back up, now that I've rambled yet again. Topaz I was just thinking of surprising Evil C with somebody from his past, with a little gift, lol. I'm never doing it, I swear.. I'm overly paranoid that someone would find it offensive. heh. Again, my bad

I can't do it cos I've gotten into trouble for putting a real person into FV before. *cough* Damien *cough*

I know I already have Evil C in the show, I'll have to ask him or you if he's actually in character at all. I can't really write my friends and whatever into FV easily, look at Emma.. she's an OTT version of a real person. So was Damien, luckily Season 2+ I changed him into what he is now heh.

Anyway my impulsive idea was to have Evil C have a reunion with somebody from his past (I wouldn't know what to name you :p for a start, I feel bad for Emma's full name being public :S ), who now has a baby/toddler/kid (didn't decide), who he doesn't know is his yet. She wants to be back with him, without the pressure. Heh this is sounding like Dr Cox and Jordan in Scrubs lol. Well at least he wont know that storyline.

Again I didn't want to anger either of you, I'm so paranoid. Plus I think there's enough babies/kids in FV, right? :p I wouldn't know how to handle it, have it silly and stuff like you suggested ages ago (the two "evil" characters trying to outdo each other - I think it was), or serious.

There could be a wedding, Tom or a bitter Chakotay would have to marry them, but neither of them are not real Captains. God damn it.. stop planning it Marill. Heh it helps me get into FV mood :p

Another long post from Marill.. sigh.

I like your idea!
If you get the person's permission ahead of time, you can't get into trouble, right? You obviously have permission from Evil C to put him in the stories, and I don't mind being in them at all myself and I'm sure neither would Kyle. :-p You can always use our middle names, or make up your own. Mine is Michelle and Kyle's is Alexander. I like his nicknames (Alex or Xander) as well. And apparently there's a nickname for Kyle, it's Kai. I just found that out recently.

Your idea fills my head with ideas as well, I like what you wrote so far, I think the silly version would be so much fun! They could be all evil and doing stupid evil things to see who's more evil or whatever, and meanwhile there's this baby who would quite probably have to be evil as well because, well how could he not be with parents like that lol. Maybe he has some sort of ability which he uses against his parents cause he doesn't like to see them battling with each other all the time, or maybe he's just trying to outdo them both! He could attempt to disrupt the wedding (deja vu, lol), I'm picturing hilarious sets with people and furniture flying about and appearing and disappearing, I dunno. Maybe this would be where the parents first realise that he can do all that, as he sends them both flying to the ceiling and they're like 'good baby, that's a nice baby, you don't want to hurt mommy and daddy, do you?' and he does one of those cute innocent little baby noises and makes them do something really crazy like catch on fire or spin around really fast. So yeh, I have no idea. It sounds like so much fun though. Then the parents could argue over where he got the genes for all that stuff and they'd actually each be trying to take credit for it because he really is good at it and well, that's what they are, evil. Maybe he can change himself into different people/objects at will and really embarrass his parents in all sorts of really funny ways.

I got carried away there, sorry. This is so much fun. I hope you decide to use us as characters. Who's gonna play me? ^^ Someone cool I hope lol.
I actually know who would be perfect because there's this actress that plays a really cool character on Flash Gordon that Clive and I both like but I need to look up her name. Of course whether you go ahead with this idea at all or use that person at all is entirely up to you, I am just throwing ideas out there.

Heh that was a fun read. It looks like you'd be better at writing this than me. If I do, do this you'd have to put in as co-writer (yes that's how it usually works :p ). I haven't had one of those in yonks.

I can include Damien in all this, as he might see the child and/or mum as competition. Hmm. I don't want to directly take your ideas, unless you want to be labelled as co-writer: I can simply put Topaz, there's never any real names in the Written By lol.

Oh oh... I was having a slight problem with a sub plot in the episode Hush Now, which involves a.. well *spoiler* evil child causing mayhem. I hadn't created one to suit the part. Ohno, now look what I've started.. why do I get encouraged :panic:

You can always use our middle names, or make up your own. Mine is Michelle and Kyle's is Alexander. I like his nicknames (Alex or Xander) as well. And apparently there's a nickname for Kyle, it's Kai. I just found that out recently.

I like Kai, no love Kai. I already have a kid character called Kyle, not that he's around in Season Five but it would be less confusing. Kai Alexander.. Michelle would do.

I'll have to look up an actress lol, just in case. I'm sure there's a pic of you somewhere, I'll try find one that looks like you.. unless the one you mentioned does. :uhoh:

This might be the only thing that gets me writing, so it's worth considering doing this. Not all in the same episode obviously, the wedding would have to be later.. a lot later :D You have to be aware of earlier point, I can't write real people in character. The only time I feel that Evil C is in character is when I abuse the "fair enough" sentence. Though I did love his response to Seven/Annika in the last episode.

I don't mind if you use all or some of my ideas, I think it'd be such an honour to have them in your stories! If you include my name (Topaz) it's ok just so it's not too visible lol. :blush:
I looked up the name of the person I was talking about, it's Karen Cliche. No she doesn't look like me (oh I wish) but the character she plays on Flash (Galen? oh my memory isn't what it used to be, no sleep does that :roll: ) has great potential for fitting this role. She has the right look and personality. Do you pick actors that look like the people playing the parts? (noooooo!! lol)
I can add more ideas if and when I think of them, no guarantees but I do have a lot of awake time to think about it. :coffee2: I think it's easier when there's no pressure to think of ideas, I don't think I could do it if I had to...
I really like the child and/or mum as competition idea, that presents a whole new set of possibilities as far as interesting and chaotic scenarios. Damien might cause a lot of funny and/or serious problems for this family, by trying to eliminate one or both or all of them. And he might even get away with it~ or does he? That could be a great cliffhanger. :-p Then you could make everyone wait until the next episode to see what really happened. Maybe Kai beats Damien, maybe they decide to form an alliance of evil, who knows? :D What if something mysterious and alien-related happens, and they lose all their evil abilities, either temporarily or (they think) permanently? Then what do evil babies/children do? And would the evil parents be greatful, or disappointed?
Kai's evil dummy of doom. Heh I have no idea, that just sounded good. Maybe his powers got temporarily transferred to his dummy, or maybe it's the source of it all.
Okay, I need to stop, getting weird now. :yawn: *blames awake-ness*

I usually have decided what each character looks like and find someone to play accordingly.

Exceptions being James, Jessie, Kevin and Sandi - all of them were picked as I was looking at the albums* and thought 'heh, they should be played by those two'. Lena was kinda like that, but I already decided that she'd have black hair, be all smiley, darkish eyes. To be fair, Jessie was always meant to be dark haired. I remember James being blonde, blue eyed, "soft" appearance http://www.fifthvoyager.net/finalfantasy7/sigs/bigsword2.jpg *couldnt resist sorry*, blah, but I gave up and chose someone else entirely, then chose his current (and second) choice from the same album. Still not sure if the guy's natural hair colour is blonde tho, the link above looks more like James in my head than who I picked eventually :evil:

Guest stars it's a different story really. Evil C is played by himself. Who looks more like him than him :p I'll have a look at her after I've listened to those new Girls Aloud clips, hehe.

Heh, a new mailing list person. Uhoh. That's more people in that group than I thought I'd ever get, that's just another sign to tell me to write.

I think it's easier when there's no pressure to think of ideas, I don't think I could do it if I had to...

It's easy to come up with ideas, pressure or no.. believe me, that's not my current problem. My motivation has gone to hell. Sigh.

I don't know if Season Five has all that time for guest star antics lol. Good ideas though. The little kiddy will have plenty of time for antics during the kid themed episodes, possibly Hush Now..

Now I'm thinking: you'd think me getting a job and all that would be good news. But dad's making it incredibly difficult to still want it. It's ranting and questioning from him that can easily put you off working, ever. Hell knows I don't need him to do that, I'm already a good way there. I'm probably only wanting this one cos it's nearly christmas and I feel like I spent a fortune on my ps2 + games heh. It's an xmas job, he should be (censored) relieved that it's not another night shift job where he "has" to drive me to there and back. (rant could continue.....)

edit: yes dad's annoyed me so much, I can't do a decent reply. Thank you dad :roll:

Ooopsie. During my many trips to the User List in admin to delete new spam users, I managed to delete one of mailing list users. This was me as it was December last year when he/she joined.

Note to my other admin, no deleting Alanna or fordonvulcan (when I get him re-registered), and no I'm not blaming you for that, I know it was me. And damn to the birthday thing on sign up, I need to mess with the config, I don't know these peoples birthdays do I? meh

In that case, I shall leave you to select the person who will play me, it sounds like a very specialised part of the character. :-p

I'm gonna keep thinking of stuff I'm sure, just filter it out as you wish, and hopefully it'll be all good. I think it will be.

Congrats on the job, I hope it's a fun one. :D

Woooo I can listen to my music in stereo on this computer again!?!?! The right always, always had huge static so I had to change the settings so sound only came out of the left (speakers/headphones, anything.. all did it). I take the chance of putting in my headphones tonight and whalla!* This is awesome. I love listening to my music this way, don't even think about mucking up again sound card. :music:

*how do you spell that^^

Anyway, Topaz.. what did you try to change in your profile apart from the avatar? If it was just the avatar, were you selecting another one from the gallery or using one of your own? Let me know.

Now that I can listen to my music in peace I may be able to write. Dad's constantly shouting at the TV, plus the cat always bugs me.., I hate playing music loud via speakers, only in headphones which is hella annoying when it's only playing out of one side. Listening to computer music via headphones in stereo again, it's a gift I tell ya. Wish me luck with the typing guys, I'm sure one of the Dead or Alive notebooks has done a runner, there's one missing, I know I've already typed up one. Pfft.. oh wait, that was the one in the carrier bag dad almost chucked which also had the one with my wannabe novel in it. >_< They're in my room now, so that wont happen again... :panic: :paranoid:

Work time Marill. :roll: Anybody got any desktop requests, I've asked in another topic but I'm never sure if anyone but the search engine spiders/bots/etc.. see them lol.

Congrats on the job, I hope it's a fun one.

It's not, I'm going to hate it I'm sure. I got lucky with Tesco, they didnt keep me on full time but since I know the people who work there well I may be unlucky this time. I'd be happier in a computer type place where I'm more comfortable and whatnot, retail.. no no.

The only day I've been in so far I went into quite the panic, I was already suffering from a high temperature (probably a good thing in a shop that has no door) so after about two hours of panicking I was worried I'd pass out from it. I'm not a public person, I'm really not. It doesn't help when some old git kept giving me a hard time because I typed in 29p instead of 27p, I always say sorry constantly even if I didn't do anything wrong. Luckily this was after my panic attack lol. He came back as well to claim I gave him the wrong fricking change.. pfft, well no wonder I did that: he's a regular, he knew I was new, he was throwing me off, Emma wasn't helping with her muttering/face pulling behind his back that I could clearly see.

In that case, I shall leave you to select the person who will play me, it sounds like a very specialised part of the character. :-p

I'm gonna keep thinking of stuff I'm sure, just filter it out as you wish, and hopefully it'll be all good. I think it will be.

It's really not. lol

Lena: looking at an Aqua single for Doctor Jones. James/Jessie: looking at the Steps Buzz album. Kevin/Sandi: looking at a Liberty X album. Faye/Lisa: looked at the Pokemon soundtrack and picked songs I liked, looked up the artists. That's how I discovered M2M and Vitamin C ha. Again looking at a cd. Claire: I just wanted to use Katie for a character, she suited her more. Oh dear I'm remembering my first choices of actors to play Lee and Ian.

With my terrible writers block I'm worried sick that I wont be able to do it properly. I really want you guys to see Dead or Alive, it's the Jessie/Duncan storyline that sells it for me. The scenes I've wrote already are so god damn cute, if Duncan didn't already win the Cute award then this would help him in future ones. I just hope the medical stuff is believable enough, I know nothing.

The James and the trainees (oh yeah and Daniel ha..) storyline's the one that'll explain away why the gang are where they are, but not fully (mwahaha).. it's juicy I tell you. I love this season's storyline, I wish I could get my act together. My god this is a long post, if only I could write this much in an episode haha.

Ok now I'm gonna go and write, wish me luck (god damn it, I typed look first, I'm so screwed. It was a typo, not cos I don't know how to spell it :p ).

I was trying to change some information as well as my avatar, such as my signature and interests. It was very odd, as a couple of times it appeared to register some changes but not others. Of course when I checked it on the forum none of the changes had stuck. :roll:

Oh and I was trying to select one of the avatars on your list (FV girls, if that helps).

I did see your other topic btw, I just don't have any ideas on what to request. :cry:

Yeh~ I'm pretty sure the problem was that in the profile area where you'd enter your birthdate the year was pre-set to something really odd like 2001 or something similar (I can't remember). That seemed to be just enough to keep the rest of it from working. As soon as I cleared the year, everything else seemed to work. :D

Ah yes good timing Marill, I was messing with the birthday settings recently. Ah well..

I'm thinking little FV Kai is cute, but so is young Damien.. :) All for the wrong reasons. This episode has too much cuteness, it's supposed to be a death, loss and injury episode, sigh.. I just hope Topaz enjoys the Kai/Michelle scene.. there should be more to come :p

"I need your do do do! Say what?" wtf, and the song is called Blow Your Cover. Disturbing.

GOD DAMN IT! I'm so sick of that annoying smell in this room. I wish I knew how to get rid of it besides spraying that body spray I never use cos I hate sprays, oh well I'm already coughing anyway..

Now I'm thinking:
I really, REALLY need to get my act together and finish Dead or Alive's second half and more.. cos I've got seven users on my episode mailing list. SEVEN! I didn't expect anybody to sign up, and I have 7.

Write Marill, write! I mean I do have about 5/6 cans of Cherry Coke, + a 500ml bottle in the fridge, plus a 2litres. I should just dump the coffee (gasp!) and do what I did in the olden days, and just drink Cherry Coke. If that doesn't work, nothing will!

Ohnoes............. the cat's done it again. :S Well, that's slowed that plan down slightly, I really, really don't want to go in the kitchen for a tad..

I'm REALLY looking forward to reading Dead or Alive. :hyper2:

*sends Marill a speed-writing formula that tastes just like Cherry Coke* :angel:

It isn't fair that I have to wait this long to get my wedding ring back~ they said come back in a week and when we did they said come back the end of January. Oh yeh, we tied the knot a couple of weeks ago in case nobody heard. :hyper: :)

Ack I never made a post on the forum about the whole Dead or Alive thing..

You should be looking forward to Three's A Paradox instead now cos I moved the Kai stuff into that :p or I will anyway. That's the next episode as of yesterday:
http://www.fifthvoyager.net/_index.html // http://www.fifthvoyager.net/news.html
Three's A Paradox should be more fun anyway with the time travelling back to when Jessie was about 1/2, what I've planned is very cute lol.. Plus that Kai and ickle Damien flashback scene would fit better in it anyways. I really want to post an extract of it or all of the scene so you don't have to wait as long to see it.. *ponders* One person has seen it, possibly more people have unless .. the first half of the episode never worked for me when I checked it yesterday, was it the same for everyone else? Meh, doesn't matter.. its gone now. Considering the state the file was in, in the ftp I really doubt it worked at all.

*sends Marill a speed-writing formula that tastes just like Cherry Coke*

Huh, this can doesn't taste any different, but I enjoy it anyway. I love Herons.. 29p each for a can and there was a mountain of them *drools* :luv: :luv:

Oh well, I'll wait.. it might of got lost on the way here.

It isn't fair that I have to wait this long to get my wedding ring back~ they said come back in a week and when we did they said come back the end of January. Oh yeh, we tied the knot a couple of weeks ago in case nobody heard.

*gasp* I don't think my cardshop does congratulations on the wedding cards, just plain congrats cards. Fricky frick. Oh well, I didn't hear about this no, *sniff* and I wasnt invited either (dont take that part seriously, heh).
