While trying to think of some fantasy fic ideas, I suddenly had the inspiration to go back to another novella I started last year. So, I took a one-shot I had written for it and incorporated it into the main fic, as well as adding a 451-word intro to that one-shot this evening.

Wrote the next chapter of Dawn of Courage ("Much Ado About Eoleo"). I had started it a while ago but... wait for it... a migraine shut down my attempt. Plus other events got in the way (namely errands and preparing for a snow storm).

Anyway, Angelo is doing the cooking one day, giving Nova a break. While having lunch Eoleo shows up... only to run smack into another one of Nova's invisible mime magic barriers, and fails to figure out how to get around it, which the party snarks at. After lunch they head on out only to stumble upon some Burning Knights building another Undead Base. They begin making their plans to fight the enemies, but they know that Eoleo will catch up to them and screw things up. Sure enough, that's exactly what happens, forcing the party to wing it and save Eoleo before he's skinned. Using various Water-based skills and spells the party swamps the Undead Army soldiers... and Eoleo, before snuffing the Burning Knights out. They raid the base for anything worthwhile, Sir Reginald transforms into his Gaia Knight form and destroys the unfinished Undead Base with Tectonic Fissure. Eoleo confronts the party, claiming they "stole his prey", only for Nova to pretty much shut him down with insults and mockery (even throwing in a Ratchet & Clank reference in the process). Eoleo tries to strike Nova only for his attack to fail and get humiliated again. Nina chews Eoleo out before the party heads out. Eoleo tries to pursue after them only for Nova to cast Banish on him, getting rid of him for the time being. The next chapter, "Thunder Storm Moth Shocks Evil", features the titular Shaman form in action.

Forgive the double post but I had a burst of inspiration for new items for my Item List in Dawn of Courage. They are Magic Seeds, which host various effects, but only last 24 hours. Examples include increasing resistance to certain elements, becoming temporarily immune to status ailments, increase the potency of Healing magic, increasing physical/magical strength/resistance, and other such effects. This, in turn, lead to the creation of new magical accessories made by Nova that make use of said Magic Seeds: Seed Rings, turning them into more permanent, and more powerful, versions of the Magic Seeds. This is because they will debut in the upcoming chapter, as the party got ahold of several Magic Seeds in the previous chapter that they obtained from raiding Muu's unfinished Undead Base.

Wrote the next chapter of Dawn of Courage this morning ("Thunder Storm Moth Shocks Evil").

Anyway, the party has taken refuge in a village during a rainstorm. Nova and Nina are working on some new magical accessories that the former cooked up, using the various Magic Seeds they got from raiding Muu's unfinished Undead Base. Elizabetta joins them for a bit, admiring Nova's craftsmanship and creativity, while a familiar figure lurks outside of the village. The next day it bright and sunny but the party hears a rumor that worries them: a stone tower that houses an ancient, evil monster has been destroyed and the monster may now be loose. Nina deduces that, given the area, the monster is Hellblade, the "boss" of the now-extinct Bladia monsters that used to roam the land before the Great War. Sure enough, Hellblade appears and is ready to attack the village, but Dominic jumps into the fray, saying he'll defeat the monster. After Elizabetta mocks him he makes fun of her smaller chest size compared to Nina, which infuriates the Buzzwing girl. However, Hellblade attacks and effortlessly defeats Dominic. Using what little information they know of Hellblade, Elizabetta dons a new Shaman form: Thunder Storm Moth, a Lightning/Wind/Light form, with Nina doing the same, becoming her Storm Swordwing form. The two girls tag-team the monster, exploiting its weakness to Lightning, before Nina charges up Elizabetta with a Lightning attack, allowing her to finish it off for good. Dominic, in a fury, reveals he released Hellblade in an attempt to reclaim his glory. This ends up making him look even worse than before and the party even better. Nina and Elizabetta tag-team him and zap him seemingly to oblivion, though they know he'll be back. After getting praised by the village and its leader the party heads on out. The next chapter, "The Grasslands of Dreams", features the party meeting the Grassland Elf Clan.

I'm not sure if I'm mentioned this before, but one thing that really helps inspire me/give me ideas is cold weather, mainly snow. The thing is, I live in an area that never sees snow. But, today I tried to make do with what I have, frost. So, early this morning I made some hot chocolate, brought my laptop outside, and looked out at the frosty roofs while trying to focus on ideas. This was the best writing session I've had in at least a month or two. I wrote 1347 words in just an hour and a half this morning, and I felt good about what I wrote too. I definitely need to do this again.

Meant to report this earlier but I got distracted. Wrote the next chapter of Dawn of Courage today ("The Grasslands of Dreams").

The party has made it to the Grassland Elf Clan's hometown. They meet Mayfair again, who informs them about one of Muu's bases being in the grasslands surrounding the village, which the party is already aware of. The party runs some general errands and decides to have some lunch afterward, with Nova stocking up on arrows since another battle is on the horizon. Nina gets a bit depressed, as earlier Mayfair told them that her father, while initially upset that she didn't win the King's Hunt Festival, his parental love for his daughter upon learning that Muu's army had infiltrated the event overrode those feelings, something that Nina is envious of. Nova can related to her and comforts her, with the party feeling that the two of them were destined to be. Afterward the party suggests that, since they're not going to tackle Muu's baddies until the next day to ensure they're rested and ready for it, Nova should open up his magical accessory shop, especially now that he's got some new merch to sell. Nova and Nina break off from the group and set up their "shop", which quickly attracts many customers, especially since Mayfair mentioned Nova's magical accessories to her clanmates upon her return from the King's Hunt Festival. After closing up his "shop" Nova and Nina rejoin the group at the inn. Nova goes to work on more accessories, with Nina helping him. Nova is concerned that he'll let everyone down despite becoming bit of a hope bringer to Edyn, as they still haven't figured out how to break Muu's barrier, something that has stumped everyone, including Belzebuth and the Goddess, since it was created. Nina is certain they'll find a way and that Nova will prevail in ending Muu once and for all. The next chapter, "Fracturing Foes", features the party facing off against Muu's next Undead Army leader.

9,614 words today. I am never allowed to say, "this will be short" anymore, I clearly second guess myself every time.

The ideas are starting to slow down for this fic that I've revisited. Still, I managed to get 354 words down for it this evening. I definitely need to end this section off pretty quickly though, before I'm stuck on it for another few months.

Haven't done anything the past few days. Made another tweak to Katakura's worldbuilding, and made all relevant changes to Aerosteel, Electrowood, and Uncoloured. Also found that I missed a spot in Electrowood with the last worldbuilding tweak, and made the necessary tweaks.

Writing some more The Devil You Know. I'm honestly not sure where to take this fic. I have a vague idea of an ending, probably when Saturn shows up with the key near the end of the series, but I may have an epilogue after the Giratina battle

Whenever I play the sims, I like to create little mini-stories for my sims, and I've really grown to like this particular group. I've decided I want to write some one-shots for them, so this evening I started building their personalities a bit more and writing down a couple of ideas I had for one-shots.

A tweak in both Aerosteel and Electrowood and some tweaks in Aerosteel (I think).
