Just some randomness

I've been playing way too much Guild Wars 2 to do anything else. Doctor Noble's made it to the max level and is kitted out with his best equipment now. His outfit looks pretty much the same as he did when I posted the image a couple of weeks ago, except he now wears glasses and carries a huge steampunk rifle with a blue tip and lightning coruscating up the barrel as his sonic screwdriver. I'll post an image of him with it someday.

I did manage to get the new Kasmeer miniature (a doll that you can put out and it follows you around). She's a blond woman in plate armor, so Doctor Noble has his Rose following him. It's absolutely hilarious, though. The doll does not move as fast as your character does, so it lags behind, and when you come to a stop, approximately ten seconds later, the doll comes running up. Every time it happens, my thoughts are "Dammit, Rose! Rule number one is 'Don't wander off!'"

I haven't posted any new stories in a while because I've been working on a longer story that's for myself only (won't be posted anywhere, ever; I won't even let my husband read it). I am continuing to participate in who_contest and Flash Fan Fiction Friday on dA, but I haven't had any ideas for independent short stories. Though I do have an idea that I hope to start working on once this other thing is done.

And then there's Broadchurch. It's still as riveting as ever, and getting more and more complicated. I think I need to go order the season off amazon.co.uk so that I can watch it over again as soon as possible. I'm not going to introduce any spoilers here, but I do want to discuss one thing that puzzled me. Why would Paul Coates be upset about having visited (the killer) in prison? He's a priest, and my understanding is that a Christian priest would want to offer understanding and forgiveness and encourage repentance in a criminal. I can understand that he would be disappointed and upset about failing to guide (the killer), but he shouldn't be upset about having made the attempt. In fact, he should be proud to have done his job in the face of public disapproval.

I second the confusion about Rev. Coates. It's sort of his job to visit the imprisoned. Maybe I'm weird because I come from a clergy background (I was a lay minister and a seminarian at one point) my brother's a pastor, but I didn't get the shame he expressed in doing so.

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who feels this way. Well, we'll see if something comes to light from all of this.
