Ooh, for the record, I forgot to mention: I'm a girl, myself. Bearthing-the-norn, I just assumed from the start, is also a girl, but really, a force like Bearthing doesn't need something paltry like a gender.

...Plus, she generally runs around screaming about everything and doesn't bathe, so you/your characters can fully assume she's aggressive and got manstench and is thus male.

I only accidentally picked the male Siamese icon because I didn't notice it was, um, a dudenorn. Whoops.


Don't care; I'm a bear.

Hopefully everything's been straightened out now! I am not a Norn-eating polar bear by any means. :P We're going to go gathering together aren't we, c1anddsaddict?

Oops... I just dropped a tasty bird... anyone want a free meal? :P I don't know who I dropped it on. :P

On the days I'm working, I'll only be able to post in the mornings, but on my days off, I'll be able to post several times a day. Just letting you know so that you aren't stuck waiting for a quick return post from me. Luckily after tonight, I have the next 3 days off, so hopefully I'll be able to interact a bit more with the other contestants on the island.

Oh... & is it an island or an iceberg? I'm not sure which it is. And... should I make up a lot of weird plants & animals that might be seen on this island? I've already got several ideas in mind.

Heh, opps, looks like I dropped two birds.... one for each of you. I'm glad I caught 3 of those tasty birds.

I'm off to bed now. I look forward to seeing the new posts after I get home from work tomorrow morning.

Haha, I feel like my journal is the most uneventful! Turns out Miss Magma Norn's destiny was a rock.

I don't write too much, so it might be a limited to a post a day sometimes. I gotta get into the swing of things! I hope I'm doing okay, though.

There's something I want to know. Players get booted out, so how is that handled, narrative wise?

Does somebody come and forcibly remove them from the island? Do they vanish? Do they die? Do they find a way off and just leave?

Is it up to the person? Do they post their final journal as they leave? Or, is it up to their fellow players to describe their fate?

I'm not sure how it gets handled since I never really paid attention to this game before, but I already have an idea of how Mea/Borgetta would disappear when she gets voted off.

Hello everyone, I just want to give you all a heads up; I have some personal matters to attend to, which may lead to some quietness in regards to my journal updates today. But I am trying my best to keep updating as often as possible! :)

Okay, thanks for letting us know. I already have a long description ready to post of my poor little norn's nightmare. I think she plans to tell it like a scary campfire story if someone wants to listen..... [ntongue]

Not a problem, I understand completely how it is, starting tomorrow & lasting for several days, I'll only be able to make posts for a short time in the morning again. So I'll be in the same boat you're in.

About my latest journal: I'm not lying about the contents. I leave out a few things because in character, I'd have no reason to know about them. I'd already finished it and uploaded it before I realized it was meant to go in my journal.

So, just imagine you're looking at my journal after I've discovered the things I shouldn't know about. I added onto the same map later, instead of drawing a new one.

No work tonight, so I'll post the next bit about what we find in the ruins after I've slept myself out. I've been getting short on sleep again.

Maybe we will find more of the medical equipment buried under some of the other wreckage. Hopefully we find that machine that makes medicine, I don't play C3 or DS docked very often, so I don't even remember what it is called.... Borgetta/Mea probably wouldn't recognize it if she saw it, so hopefully c1anddsaddict will recognize it, if we find it. I certainly look forward to seeing c1anddsaddict's post about what they find in the ruins.

Oh... I finally found my original export of Borgetta, as well as the egg file I had made with her gen file. I can post her somewhere if someone wants to play, experiment, or examine her. She was the first norn I ever genetically modified, & the story she told around the fire really was almost exactly what happened to her.

so you're saying that you had some hebbe or something and it got assimilated but somehow didn't assimilate every other norn and then you used genetics kit to give her that cool appearance?

It's been so long since I ran the world Borgetta was born in, that most of the details are only half remembered at this point. I go through a lot of worlds for C2, so I don't even remember which one specifically I used for her. I probably had several different species of norn running around in that world, Atlantic mernorn is the most likely type of norn that she started out as. I know she has it in her, I just can't remember for sure if it's what she started as. The main reason I think that is the one she started as is that I was very obsessed with having my creatures be amphibious at all stages of life, so I used Atlantic mernorn a lot. Gargoyle is the second most likely race of norn that she could've started as because the surprise at seeing the unexpectedly vivid wing colors could have been one the things that startled me into taking notice of a specific norn.

At this point, all I really remember is that after I released some borg norns into the world, I noticed that one of the norns kept going rogue & would get assimilated again & again. Once a norn goes rogue, I don't think they can assimilate other creatures anymore, so the remaining few normal creatures in the world were safe from her, at least until she was assimilated again. As I watched her, I noticed that there were a number of times where after being assimilated she was feeling pain constantly, her face twisted into an angry expression the entire time. At the time, I didn't know enough about norn genetics to fix the constant pain problem myself, so after that point I just kept watching for her to be assimilated again & when she had both the water breathing & no longer felt constant pain, that's when I used Genelab to modify her appearance & hatched a new egg from the modified gen file.
I think I learned how to modify norn genetics just so I could change her appearance to the one she currently has. I loved how she turned out so much that I made an egg file for her so that I could hatch her into any world I wanted to.
Besides Atlantic mernorn, the only other norn race that I know for sure that is in her, is the Tactical/Threat analysis subrace of borg norn. When they are hatched, they instantly age to adult, & that is one of the traits that Borgetta shares with them.

Did you want me to put her up somewhere so she can be downloaded & played with? I truly have no idea what other genetic oddities she might have.

I have to say, I'm running out of writing steam. Not ideas so much (I roll die to see what happens to Bearthing-the-norn next) but simply the ability to keep posting. This might result in my elimination, and I don't mind if so, but it's been incredibly hard to pump out an entry every day and harder still to get the required pictures on my schedule.

Anyway, I'm probably going to be slowing down, unfortunately. Sorry about that, Bearthing Fans.

I think I remember hearing something about it taking 15 days to make something into a habit, & that toward the end of those 15 days it becomes harder to keep doing whatever it was you were working on. So I'm not really surprised that people are currently running out of writing steam right around now. It is day 14 of the contest.
I hope you get your writing steam back soon Bearthing, it's pretty fun reading your posts. I kind of wonder what Bearthing would think of Borgetta if she ever ran into her. Would she mistake her for 'The Enemy'? [ntongue] Everyone else seems to be scared of Borgetta when they first meet her after all....

The main reason I've been trying to post at least once each day is to get back into the habit of writing each day again. I didn't join survivor with plans of winning, I joined it for other reasons. Mainly for fun & to get use to writing again. [ntongue] Not to mention, the early release of the Chione update was the other main reason I joined survivor, & since that has been released, everything else I do survivor wise is just for pure fun.

I just hope my drive to post each day hasn't been putting pressure on the other contestants & ruining their fun with the game. [nscared]

I try to post once a day, too. It's a matter of my moods and schedule and incredibly stubborn 'fanfiction muse' cooperating.

I'm a weird writer. Original stuff? Great, easy, fine. But roleplaying and fanfiction screw me up big, big, big time, and absolutely drain me. I know a lot of people who are the exact opposite! [nlaugh] That doesn't mean I don't love hopping into Bearthing-the-norn's skin, but it's harder for me to do, as I have this little tic in my head that says "she's not really yours, she's a character from an already established universe."

As a side-note, I would also like to apologize to Panda-mist for kind-of screwing her up in the map contest: in-character 'Panda the Magma' would have no reason to make a map, as Bearthing-the-norn gave her one. My mistake, and I hope voters take this fact into account this week.
