A brief gripe, and an idea

Whenever I want to play Granado Espada, I have to dress up and take a stroll to an Internet cafe located very near my place.

I can't say enough about the owner, who spends an awful lot of time thinking about his shop. He's putting the place through an upgrade at present, bringing in a few new units to satisfy the excessive demand for the games that he installs. This owner makes a point of searching out and installing new games in his machines, including Granado Espada of course. It's all in the name of customer satisfaction, he says.

I wish that I had such glowing words for the clientele, though. Instead, all I'll say is, there's this particular game that's uber-popular in the shop now, and it causes some of the most horrific lag I've ever seen.

I can no longer count how many times my poor NineMoons girls were killed because of the lag induced by these customers and their mania for that game.

So, on to the idea that I had while suffering through another one of those interminable lag-induced dead spells:

What if I start writing fanfictions for Granado Espada, and put them up on this blog? I'd be talking about a few vignettes, one or two character studies, some really short stories, what we call drabbles just to challenge my conciseness skills, that kind of thing.

The characters, of course, would be drawn from my NineMoons families. I have four now, one on each server, and that makes for a fairly large pool of potential characters. The RNPCs and some of my friends would make cameos and help drive the plots. And the stories would be in the form of letters and documents created during the families' stay in the New World.

This would also be part of the mini-celebration I'm having at present, and a thank-you gift to everyone who's been kind enough to visit this blog and leave their comments.

What do you think?

Stories are always good. ;)

If I may ask -- in what area is your gaming cafe? I'm not sure whether the one I usually go to already has GE.

@ Jonas and mia

thank you for the encouragement re: the fanfiction.

@ mia

the shop's in Bulacan. ask your suki shop's owner if he can install GE; shop owners may know, and they're often okay with new games [at least, those I know].
