THE LISTA Far From Comprehensive but Still Pretty Impressive List of deviantART Literature Peeps
I've often said I keep a list of writers - now you too can have easy access to all my
collectionorganized spreadsheet of great literature! Back when I was running StyleOverSubstance, I needed an easy way to add names for the game; and thus, I put together a list - an epic list, of every writer I know, have heard of, or ran across during my dA tenure.
(Yes, many people will fall into multiple categories - give me a break please, it's hard enough just listing four hundred names.)
People You Absolutely Must Know
aka, the people who know what's going on
If you've not seen The List yet, please do give it a click! I worked on it for almost eight hours, and I want all you nerds to use it - go forth and discover new writers!
I haven't updated in a while, so there's lots of stuff to fill you in on But first, I'd like to vent about last nights drama:
My parents and I go to the Mellow Mushroom every Thursday with a bunch of Ingress friends to play trivia. First, second, and third place get gift cards, and the group has been trying to save up to invite a family with six kids who don't have much (seriously, they live on like $700 a week). The place doesn't do reservations, but we do call ahead to let them know a big group is coming cause, ya know, that's just polite. Mom calls about an hour ahead to let them know 12 people are coming.
We get there around ten after six, and they tell us it's going to be about a 45 minute wait. Trivia doesn't start until seven anyway. About 15 minutes later, another group comes in, asking for a party of 12 as well. They stand around for about another ten minutes before the lady goes to the hostess to ask about the wait. I heard the hostess tell her that there's another party of 12 ahead of them. Entitled bitch goes crying to the manager.
So this other party gets seated ahead of us, and the hostess comes up to my dad - "I'm so sorry, I tried to tell him you guys were here first" - something along those lines - "but they went to the manager." So my dad has her get said manager out here, and long story short we win in the long run cause we have $100 gift cards now. But here's the kicker - I went to the restroom before we left for another restaurant, and that party of 12 was only using half the table. This selfish fuckstick knowingly took our place and then didn't even use it. But hey, pizza is on my family next week.
But, back to life updates. My aunt and her family asked me to watch their new chihuahua puppy for a weekend while they were out of town, and she was the cutest thing ever. Her name is Coco.
My cat was endlessly curious about her, but played nice which surprised me. He pawed at her a few times, but never brought out any claws.
My copy of Zero Time Dilemma came in, and I played through in about 20 hours. A little disappointed by it really - I didn't feel like the writing was a strong as the previous titles, though some of the scenarios were intriguing. Maybe it was just because I played it so fast - 999 took months to play, and VLR was much the same, though that was due to all the reading (ZTD was cinematic). And it did end on a bit of a cliffhanger, so maybe a fourth game is in the works.
It's been too hot for Magic Springs, but Russ and I have hit the pool a few times. He's been acting out somewhat lately - might just be that age, or it might be the new baby in the family. Little brother Jackson has no doubt shifted the family dynamic. But he took to Pokemon Go in no time at all, and we've been playing together a lot. On Wednesday, we met up with my dad to get on the trolley and play for a while:
Seriously, he's really good at throwing Pokeballs.
My town has quite a lot of stops in the older district, so I've played a lot on my own as well. Level 17, Team Mystic

Again, please do check out the list I linked up top - drop some suggestions if you want!
I'm thinking about doing a follow-up for The List with some personal favorites - thoughts? Yes, no?
doughboycafe is now a CV!
Game of Antine, an OCT - this looks interesting.
Can someone code me a silver button for this journal? The black never really worked
