I'll get back to the replies in the following days, but I'm so stupidly proud of this that I wanted to post it as soon as it was finished
Life, the Great Tree etc. is my entry for a "primer" challenge on LJ, a character study in 26 images (or drabbles) for prompts of our own choice, one per letter. I claimed myself 'cause I'm a cheater like that. The texts are mostly mine, plus a couple of tweaked quotes.
Anna: Yeesha writes "I am from her". We all are, in a sense.
Butterflies: this parallel dimension where trollface is not dead skeeves me quite a bit, actually. Yet I keep a reminder in my Relto.
Exiled: not in the "Myst III" sense but in a "giving in to the Call" sense. Sorry Saavedro...
Firemarbles: ...have I ever mentioned that I feel stalked by those shiny things? They're everywhere. And they are watching me e_e
Gray Skies: Atrus' journals mention Mechanical having a gray sky that would last as long as the Black Ships weren't defeated. Mmmh.
Ha!: My standard Myst moment. "Ha! I've discovered this device!" "...and I don't have the faintest idea of what it does. Woe."
Impressions: I had the distinct sensasion of wanting a hug from woman-in-red-probably-Catherine...
Leastness: "Search love" is straight from Words, it's the last line of the "Seek knowledge and you will find..." series. 3rd person view in Descent truly gives me a sense of leastness, of being a small creature in the vast underground darkness.
Myst: I like that EoA seems to encourage us not to give in to nostalgia.
Never: *crossing all the fingers I have*
Overlook is my middle name: story of my point-and-click-gaming life.
Releeshahn: after Garternay and D'ni, I hope it'll work out for the best?
Stranger: player!me and my identity issues with the Stranger and EoA's 'Stranger'
Uru: *super Cavern hug* even when it was empty, I imagined how it would be and now... now... *sniffle*
Vanquish: The good endings of the Myst games thwart the villains' plans, but they're still sad as heck ç_ç
Wingrove'd: if we were supposed to believe that the volcano was in the Middle East, what's the appropriate response when unknowingly approaching the real thing?
X, X, X, will I get it right this time? ç_ç: pfffffft, I was so far off with that one XD
