Not a lot to talk about. My right hand recovered faster than my left. Left hand still kind of iffy.

I had a lot of time to reflect on a few things and that includes thinking about the story and what I think I wanted to do with X3, where the main topical issue was about 'memories' and how they shape the person that they become today, with the biggest one being between Mizuki and Shizuka**, with some potential side stories with other characters. For instance, I came to a realization that Shizu and Ziel really get along because they are actually alike and went through similar ridiculous experiences because of their circumstances. Shizu being raised for combat, but has no social skills because a "potential host" for the dragon wouldn't need that (except it obviously didn't work out that way). Ziel trained as an assassin in a training from hell because of his powers that could kill a lesser person if they didn't know better-- asocial battle freaks. They also have a common fear of suffocation even if it is by different means.

Another thing I mostly never gave thought to was Kanna, by her very nature, would come from a rich family (generally always thought of her as descendant of a samurai class family that still clung to some traditions, such as training her to fight with a naginata which is an antiquated thought in modern times). That thought crossed into how a family like that could employ maids, and then crossed into how I frequently doodle Kanna dressed in maid outfits. I wonder if that's more of a punishment or part of some body double shenanigans (you know, like switching places with a maid to sneak out, which is cliche as heck, but still sounds funny in my head). Then again, given her personality, Kanna is more than likely not liking dressing like a maid.

** Some of that seeped into later versions of the first six Books-- that Mizuki's husband is a stage magician and she became his assistant, and how Shizu detested him, and later Mizuki, for running off with him to get married. For Shizu that manifested in that seemingly-random harlequin costume, which was supposedly her 'stage costume' for an act featuring Mizuki at Shizu's expense. Current thinking I'm contemplating maybe it's better she ran an outfit similar to Mizuki's, but that would depend on how old she was when this happened, which I haven't quite pinned down (because while that outfit would be okay on a teenage Mizuki, a pre-teen Shizu probably wouldn't come off that well).

I was playing with an "AI" story generator and it did some amusing things. Some of it rather erotic (bad, bad AI). Not going to post what it generated because I deleted it.

Was going to try the ChatGTP one, but you need to make an account for that so I didn't bother.

Currently I was playing PERSONA series and I found Sorceria's concept is somehow quite similar to its ‘Metaverse’, especially for what Ayame and Chika experienced in X2. It seems such theme always delivers wonderful surrealistic story in Japanese Role-Playing Game.
