I have a developing idea of another concept, though it does not contain nearly as much detail as the Nightlands one.

The basic idea is of a society that has, at some point in it's past, a divine war that resulted in all the gods being thrown out of the divine planes, and relegated to living as mortals, reincarnating over and over again.

The first and biggest effect of this is that any demi-god child and their descendants for several generations have a measure of divine ability - more commonly known as magic. Their magic also tends to follow what their divine ancestor is patron of - a water god will spawn water mages, a fire god will spawn fire mages, etc.
There are exceptions, but they are very rare. Magic pre-existed the divine war, but it was rare for humans to be able to channel it, with most magic-using being more people using magical objects or priests and clerics receiving divine aid.
However there has always been a goddess of magic, and her descendants can defy common patterns of reducing magical ability, with a mage being born four or more generations after the goddess but having demi-god strength. Descendants of the goddess of magic also have no perceptible alignment in their magic, potentially being able to cast anything and everything.

The second issue is that some of the gods can cause trouble when they become aware of their divine nature. This more than the issue of parenting mages has given rise to an order of Watchers who have taken up the task of keeping track of the gods when they incarnate, and if they start to cause trouble for normal people, kill them.

Some gods incarnate in certain family lines - usually the more reliable and predictable ones. Some have a tendency to incarnate in certain areas - a forest god gets born near a forest, a sea god is born in a coastal or island village, even a god of Justice tends to be born in a city because that is where law courts and universities that teach law are located. These gods are slightly more difficult to track, but often can be found before they reach puberty.

But the ones the Watchers are most concerned with are the ones with less definite patterns - random parentage, random location of birth.

Some Watchers have become so prejudiced about the gods they would prefer to kill them on sight and will find any excuse to get rid of them.

Meanwhile there are some gods who want to live unassuming lives, playing at being mortal, and then there are some who are vicious, violent, or scheming plotters who inevitably want to grab power and rule as tyrants. The former get misunderstood by prejudiced Watchers, when something drives them to defend themselves - like loggers trying to log the forest that is home to a forest deity and the deity trying to stop them - while often Watchers cite the latter as reason why all of the gods are dangerous, all of the time.

And now for PLOT! )

Malacus is begrudgingly talking to Mimnristriqua.

This may be the start of something.

Idly thinking up names, because Andrion has got to have at least one other brother, besides Nathanius.

Err... Problem is, I can't think of one.

Watch this space.

New visitors from [livejournal.com profile] agiftedmind:

Soundwave (Vintage G1, with Laserbeak).
So far he's been mobbed by both Soundwave (TFA) and Soundclaw (RotF). They are both happy to have another Soundwave, and a vintage one at that.

Grimlock - (Vintage).
He decided to nibble on Iceman, then when he heard about Slag's tail problem insisted to come over to the desk to be with his Bonded.

Slag - (Vintage).
A problem happened while I was fiddling with his tail. I wasn't being deliberately rough, but a small metal bar that held one of the tail pieces (the tail splits in two while transforming) came out and I can't work out how to get it back in.
Grimlock, Slag's Bondmate, is growling at me over it.

Galvatron - (G1 Universe).
He pounced Cyclonus as soon as he was out of 'Cade's bag. Cyclonus is going to get quite the workout while he's here.

I need to keep track of these since Blue has at some time got more. They are only imaginary plushies, but I wouldn't mind making physical ones too.

Well I've joined a new comm.

Yes Russ, I know I've been quiet but I have been more or less in the background with Baka and Mimi. I do know you have a few headmates that don't post to their lj's.

I would consider asking Gaia if she had the time to allow Elrohir to join but there's the point, does she have the time?

Anyway, the place looks fun, the fact that it's multifandom - as far as literary fandoms go - is good, means one can meet unique pups.

The House of §trange has changed a lot since I first envisaged it and the major changes to it have only come very recently when I reimagined it as the home of my muses.

The main reason for the change I think is that I don't think my Ardan muses would care to live in the totally internal micro-dimension of the original USS Sevilia incarnation of the House. It got altered to something akin to Imoen's hidden cottage in the Galena mountains (between Vaasa and Damara in Faerûn) and Rivendell of LotR canon.

The House of §trange, as it has become. )

This is just a little about the place in my mindscape my muses live.

Wow, close to 4 months since I did the original audit and I finally got the subsidiary ones finished.

Just to collect 'em all:

Where are they now? )

Post-audit, Part Four.

This time I think it will be shorter, the plotbunnies were never nearly as developed as the BG and DBZ ones were.

Hop on the Hogwarts Express... )

Míriel Þerindë


Baka's note: I wanted to check that Þ came up if I tried to post it. Fëanor was also giving me hell for not hell for not having yet gotten around to investigating the meaning of it since he doesn't seem to like the idea that I didn't know how to properly pronounce his Ammë's name.

As I have found out, Þ is pronounced as th, so Míriel's name would be pronounced "Míriel Therindë".

I can see better now where the accusation of a lisp came from, and I can also understand why Míriel was so offended at the language change to begin with, I mean, she grew up Therindë and suddenly people started calling her Serindë? XÞ

(That's another thing, Þ is great for smilies!)

Ping Nata: Chat to Grandma Idril (and more than likely gain flowers from her).

Ping Saj (again): Chat with Nolo.

Chat to Túrin? Lalwendë? Turgon? Malbeth (XP)?

Some time after others chat with Celebrían (Saj again!).

Somewhere along the way chat with Galadriel (Kim).

Where are Maedhros and Maglor?

Gah! Headache! And I still need to announce my acceptance of the throne... meh! I wish that game could get an Elrond!

Jass? You think you could take up playing Gwanunig again after you're done on Nano?


Edit: Check on the chat with Nolo.

The Twins consider the matter of fathers. Here in this place they have Ros as Adar, which Rín thinks is a good thing for their nephew to be if he has to be so much older than them.

Over in that vague direction they also have Russa, who is really nice, and Ros' twin Rond... though Rín has heard that Rond has left that place and hopes he hasn't disappeared totally, that would make Ros sad which would make Rín sad too because he likes his nephew a lot and if Rín is sad then by default Réd is sad too...

Rín wonders where he would have to go to find Rond.


On the other hand, over there, they also have Ros, which is good, but not quite good enough. Rín wishes the Silly Lady would track down his Adar's mun and damn-well RP a scene where he and Réd can go find their play Adar but Silly Lady keeps sleeping at all the wrong times...

Rín sighs and picks up his crayons again. Réd listens to his gusty sigh, knowing only as a twin as closely bound as he is to Rín what the more thoughtful half of their pairing has been thinking, and returns to his own colouring again, all sentiments agreeing with his own opinions.
