At last, a new chapter! · 10:59am
Hey there, everyone!
I'm really sorry about the delay. Several things happened recently that really screwed up my writing.
First, I moved house, and the 'Net took TEN SODDING DAYS to be hooked up. No Internet, no Google Documents. Woo yay.
Seriously. I know of Minecraft but I'd never played it. I appreciated the aesthetic, I know what a Creeper is, I'm impressed by some of the constructions and so on, but I was never interested enough to try it. I got it for my 360 back in May, played the tutorial, didn't buy it, didn't see what all the fuss was about.
Then I saw a YouTube review of it and thought, why not, I have the trial on the ol' XBox, let's give it another go. I punched trees and made planks and finished the little house and hid inside during the night, and the next morning, I went outside and started digging down for the hell of it.
And I got it. I could dig and explore and make anything.
I forgot about the XBox version. I jumped straight on the laptop and threw money at Mojang. I lost two full days. And then I moved and I couldn't use GDocs, but I sure could build and dig and craft and kill monsters and oh cool this gold deposit is huge and...
And now I've uninstalled it and deleted all the houses and castles I've built, because it's addictive as hell but it's too much like backbreakingly-hard work to really be fun. You get nothing out of it other than a thing you spent 200 hours building that doesn't really exist anyway.
So anyway, here's the new chapter, and here's the complete table of contents (yes, it's nearly over):
Chapter 18 - Magical Mystery Tour
Chapter 19 - To Hell And Back
Chapter 20 - Sun And Moon
Chapter 21 - Final Flight
Chapter 22 - Second Millennial
Epilogue - Eternal
