Current If anyone else on here has read/is reading the Discworld series, is The Color of Magic the best book to start with, or does book order actually matter? I'm a bit confused.

Nothing like having two major projects, an essay, and a test with the same due date. Particularly when that day is 'tomorrow'. Haha, I won't be sleeping tonight.

Just discovered I accidentally found my way into a fresh new hell of fucked up but innocent looking "writers' groups". Will probably rant later; it's almost entertainingly awful.

That feel when parents completely make up your interests in conversations with others because they can't be assed to remember what you actually enjoy.

Got accepted by a college! At least now I know I have something productive to do with my life next year.


Hello there! I’m Graviloquence, or Grav, if you prefer. Welcome to my page. I live to write and make terrible jokes, and RPing is a great way for me to get my fill of the former of those two things. I suck at talking to people but I swear I'm friendly. I'm just bad at introductions. Which is probably very evident from this paragraph alone, actually. I've been on this site for about a year, but I've only really been active within the last couple of months. I look forward to continuing to be at this same level of activity, and as I'm slowly moving away from another site I've RPed on for about five years, that's likely going to be the case.

(Wow I'm still boring. This is still a work in progress.)

As for my interests outside of writing and RPing, they are many, and I’ll simply list them to keep my page from becoming an unwieldy length:

Books: Homer’s Iliad and OdysseyThe Return of the King by E.B. White • The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien • A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin • The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss • The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas • Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett (and basically anything written by either of those authors) • (More to be added, but I don’t remember the particular series names for some ^^; )

Video Games: The Elder Scrolls Series • Dishonored • Bloodborne • Assassin’s Creed • Dragon Age (played Origins, know a decent amount about DA2 and DA:I) • The Witcher

Music: Two Steps from Hell • Audiomachine • ES Posthumus • Immediate Music • Basic Productions • Sons of Pythagoras • Fired Earth Music • Really Slow Motion • Adrian Von Ziegler • Peter Crowley • Brunuhville • Imagine Dragons • Sleeping At Last • Bastille • Florence + The Machine • Ryn Weaver • All Good Things • Sigur Rós • Nine Inch Nails (I probably enjoy many more artists’ work, but their names aren’t currently coming to mind.)

@MacabreFox I very much appreciate the invite, but I may not be able to join if it's on gdocs, possibly for awhile. My school requires I have a gmail account and it's very inconvenient to have to log out just to post, and I can't keep postponing the end of term paper I have for one of my classes.
I'm sorry about the wait dude, it's been awful lately.
As he followed his companion back out of Dragonsreach, Nil couldn’t help but feel slightly guilty about not having attempted to do as Elle had asked him to before her meeting with the Jarl. It was clear the breton was overwhelmed, and in her position, he doubted he’d be in much of a different state. What right do they have to heap so much upon one person’s shoulders in a single conversation? For a court, the Jarl and his lackeys certainly are tactless, the demiprince thought as he shot a sour look over his shoulder at the members of Whiterun’s court, hoping he would never have to see any of them again. While he felt that he should try and do something to reassure his traveling companion, nothing in particular came to mind. The more he thought about it, he realized he had never actually had to do anything like that before recently. Well, that’s helpful, he thought to himself sarcastically, a scowl appearing on his face as he mulled over the best way to approach Eilonwy.

A suitable consolation—at least, in his opinion—came to him as he descended the last flight of steps down from the Cloud District. He had been uncharacteristically slow-paced during this stretch of time, for once not even attempting to overtake the breton, instead choosing to walk with her. He began somewhat slowly, [color=C40249]“Look, they have no right to order you to go talk to these Greybeards—they’ve got no authority over you, unless you let them. If you’re not ready for this sort of thing, or don’t want to do it at all, I certainly wouldn’t guilt you over it. It’s ridiculous, expecting you to solve their problems for them without lifting so much as a–”

Hey! You! By the order of the Jarl, stop right there!”

Nil trailed off as a guard stalked towards them angrily, a hand firmly gripping the hilt of his sword as he approached, as if expecting trouble from them. The half-Prince bristled, immediately wary of the guardsman and his intent. It was then he realized what he was still wearing, and a weary sort of annoyance flooded over him. Well, I can’t say I wouldn’t look suspect to the average mortal, particularly in attire like this, Nil mused, casting a glance down at the Whiterun Guard’s uniform he still wore. He was going to attempt to prevent any altercation from occurring if possible, but he figured he could take on pretty much anyone in the city if he had to—well, he would have, if he hadn’t already expended so much energy and magicka fighting the dragon less than an hour ago. All Nil really wanted was to buy one of everything from the Bosmer’s fresh meat stall, eat, and then call it a day; he couldn’t very well do that if the guard decided to arrest or kill him, so he squared his shoulders with a slight scowl and he replied with an unimpressed What.

The guard paused at this, seeming uncertain as it dawned on him that confronting the rather unfriendly-looking demiprince alone was a bad call on his part before regaining his composure. ”Where did you get that uniform, ...elf?” Nil smirked slightly at his hesitance, but his amusement was cut short as the severity of the guardsman’s accusation escalated, “We can’t just let some, erm, ‘civilian’ not associated with Whiterun’s law enforcement walking around and impersonating our guardsmen.”

”You think I’m trying to impersonate you lot?” Nil snorted, equal parts irked and entertained, “Do you honestly think anyone would’ve thought I was an actual guard? I’m only wearing this because I don’t have anything else at the moment, and it’s not like I had much of a choice in what I–”

“Where did you find that uniform, anyways? You didn’t harm anyone for it, did you? The guard’s tone was accusatory as he glared through his full helm at the demiprince, clearly suspicious of him and growing more hostile by the second.

“I would have no reason to. No.” It was at this point Nilovas began to worry that anything he said or did to try and de-escalate the situation would likely be fruitless, considering the only response he got from the guard was an unconvinced 'hm' as the man took a threatening step forwards. He shot a concerned glance at Elle, hopeful that she would be more effective at getting the guard to stand down.
@MacabreFox All right, I'm finally on! I'm not sure how much time I have this weekend though; I have a major art history paper due Tuesday. Sorry I've been offline so much lately.

EDIT: I also just realized I have no idea how to contribute at this point, as I wasn't available earlier in the week. Is it better to just sit this collab out?
