Top Gear will be on tonight, and I'll be going to bed a lot earlier than I have been the past few days because I work tomorrow, and the rest of the week until I get off work Friday. But still, I'm gonna try, a little later on and between showings of TG, to finish chapter 6 of my story.Amy
: I did try working with an internet dating website a while ago, and it didn't really work out. I never really got a response out of anyone, and maybe trying the "old fashioned" way might be better. It just wasn't really working, and between work and family related stuff, I just stopped really doing anything with it.
At least I have some plans for my future fan fic ideas below--since I know that you're a fan of the Volturi, I think that you'll like some of my ideas for them Lynne
: Sorry that things aren't looking good for your boss right now and the company that she owns. I know that feeling from working at the library a few years ago--I always felt that I'd get the ax every time that the phrase "budget cuts" abound, and my mom lost her job last year when the company that owned Wonder/Hostess shut that division down. I'm not a praying person, but I do hope the best for you and your boss right now.Everyone/fan fic update and ideas
: I'm also working on an angle for a later chapter of my fan fic, and there's a definite connection to both Twilight and Guyver here. It concerns something that I know about Natsuki
from the canon of the Guyver manga/anime series. In Bio-Booster Armor Guyver, Natsuki Taga (one of the major female protagonist) is a devout Christian, and hence she doesn't like how Chronos (the antagonist organization) is trying to "play god" by encouraging people to be processed into the part human, part alien mutated creatures known as Zoanoids and their methodology behind it--she outright detests it. And in Twilight, it can be seen that the Volturi may be trying to "play god" and for sure, Joham (Nauhel's biological father) can be seen as attempting to do as such. I'm not a very religious or spiritual person, but I can see why some would have an issue with such scenarios. I personally don't advocate one trying to "play god", be it with excessive interfering with the course of nature, or with certain rulers of the world, ie Fascist or Communist dictators--Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin, for two examples, could be seen as trying to "play god" by trying to make themselves the only major authority over their people, trying to goad their populace into believing as they did, and basically stopping short of brainwashing people to believe in their radical political and ethical views.
For my part, I consider it unethical to try and force ideals on to others. I have no problem with people expressing their religious, ethical, political or any other views, but the line to me gets crossed when people try and aggressively force their views onto others as the "only" solution out there--I don't believe that there's one right answer out there, nor any answer that necessarily wrong, and that's something that we all have to figure out for ourselves as individuals. That's why I say that god gave us free will, and a brain to use it to think for ourselves while being tolerant and courteous/respectful of others.
In my story, though, it does set up a area of conflict, though it's not the main one in my story, but it's still a major point of contention between the protagonists in my story and the antagonists. That's something else that Twilight and Guyver have in common--people trying to be an all-empowered authority who espouse that their beliefs and theories are the only ones that are really "right" and are the only worth whole solution to all the problems out there, when really, there's no answers that will solve all problems--there's no "be all, end all" solutions out there. And though they're not the bad guys, or really trying to "play god", I do think that Amy will get a kick out of what some of the members of the Volturi do as jobs after the abdicate--especially Aro, that's gonna be hilarious
I'll try and finish up chapter 6 and maybe a few other things tonight before I go to sleep. And I'll try and work out what's gonna happen with later chapters.Fan fic update #2
: I've finally finished chapter 6 of my fan fic. Now on to Top Gear and what ever other items I want/need to do tonight. I also need to sort out some change stuff for when I get it exchanged at the bank later this week. Tonight's a good night for just relaxing before I got back to work. There's no need for the wood stove tonight, and all I need to do is decide if I want chicken spring rolls or chicken and cremini mushroom lasagna.
But this might be the last message for tonight. I have some gaming that I want to do tonight and some dinner to eat, whatever I choose to eat. Today was a pretty good day overall, even if it was a short day.
I'll be back later
