A little about me

I like to play video games, and write poetry sometimes. I occasionally flood the word games forum with a lot of posts, then vanish for a long time. Most people call me Ree or FNRR. I'm okay with most people, but I don't generally open up to many. I like pepsi and coca-cola. Wanna know more stuff? Talk to me! Wait, where are you going? Oh... okay, bye...

Letting go

That moment in suspension-
The one that breaks the tension-
That shatters all that’s left behind
Leaves nothing left for me to find

Clutching at the threads
On slowly cooling beds
Where once we dreamt of future days
Before we knew that we’d part ways

These memories mean more to me
Than idle, drifting fantasy
And through it all I know
The pain of letting go.

I wish that I had spoken more
In conversations past
I know these things are flawed at core –
The cycle cannot last.

Now I sit alone and wonder
At the clock upon the wall
Though my world is torn asunder
The second hand still falls.

I can barely comprehend
Through this endless aching flow
That the chapter’s at an end
It’s time to let it go.

So I close my eyes and put away
These thoughts of yesterday
Despite the many tears I’ve cried
Look forward to the brighter side

I know that every sorrow
Prepares me for tomorrow
Since in the end, strife
Is part of life.

And though sometimes I’ll miss you
And sometimes I’ll need a tissue,
New things will fill the void and so
I’m finally letting go.



Arrhythmic poem

You danced in circles around in my head
And you took me home and you led me to bed
But you left in a hurry and you never said
All the things I imagined you would

You let go, and we fall apart
So go slow, you are breaking my heart
And I know these things don’t always last
But I hope we go back to the past

And I woke in the morning to the bright sunlight
Those rays were shining just a little too bright
And I guess I’ll never have another night
Like the one you gave me before you left my life

We let go, and we reach the end
But go slow, for we have just began
even though it’s no more than just friends
yet here we go, and we begin again

I walked outside and I opened my eyes
And I saw the world for the very first time
And I don't feel better and I don’t want to try
To live live in a world where there's no you and I

Here we go, we begin again
Even though there was a bitter end
And I know it doesn’t make much sense
But I hope that you will let me in

Poems

When your world is shattered and you sink into despair
I will be beside you to let you know I'm there
I'll tell you how you're never really, truly all alone
And then we'll stand again and bravely face the great unknown.
---------------------------
101 people who love you to death
But no single one can quite steal your breath
and then you meet the one just for you
the one who makes your heart sing true
they ignore you plainly and pass you by
appraising the crowd with a critical eye
I can tell you now one of the facts of life:
Irony cuts like a knife.
--------------------------
Just beyond the trees I see
An image that appeals to me
In the cold and misty night
the silver lake reflects moonlight
A work of art that has no name
A mirror that I cannot frame
As I see it, it would seem
the spectacle is like a dream
My eyes, once dark in the night
Now reflect a speck of silver light.

Eyes (A more abstract poem)

Saying more than spoken word
No clearer meaning ever heard
Alight with wonder
Wide with fear
Sorrow brings with it a tear
Reflecting thunder
Sometimes joy
Batting lashes, feeling coy
Drowning in a deeper blue
Than any sea we ever knew
Awash with bright and charming green
A blooming forest yet unseen
Hazel, Silver, Copper, Gold
Each a story to be told
Keep them open wide and clear
Let them show your hope and fear
And until you lose your earthly ties
Know the value of your eyes.

A longer poem

I was once a soldier; I stood for many things.
I was a one-man army; my rivals all were kings!
In battle I was a madman, with my enemies falling like stones;
At each war’s conclusion the field was strewn with bones.
But I did have a weakness and it made me fear the day
When my enemies would learn it, and with me do away.
That weakness was my truest love, my lovely Caroline
And all across the land there was no maiden quite so fine.
But my dearest love was a secret; Her place in my heart was deep.
And I thought of her each night before I lay me down to sleep.
I hid her away in a far-off town, way out across the sea;
And though we were so far apart she felt quite close to me.
I had thought my love was a secret, and my love had thought so too;
But one day a mighty wooden ship came sailing across the blue.
And locked away in the galley, bound by chains and rope
Was the captured maiden Caroline, and with I her only hope.
My heart beat faster with terror, for I saw the captain then:
And grouped up all around her he had his finest men.
He barked an order to them and then he did face me
And said if I didn’t pay him he’d dump her into the sea.
Well I did know a thing or two about this evil crew;
It was assembled of only the finest rogues, and they numbered quite a few.
Well, I readied myself for battle, for I hadn’t the money to pay
And it is with solemn pride that I do remember that day
For it was the day that I fought those scoundrels aboard that wooden craft;
And I slew them all for their heinous crimes, everyone from fore to aft;
But this story has a happy end, for on that day you see
My lovely maiden Caroline did finally return to me.

Another long poem

My soul is as black as the midnight sky
It grows blacker and blacker with every new lie
It wont let me free and it stifles each cry
The evil in me refuses to die

It knows what I want and it knows what I need
Together we work and together we feed
It devours my soul, my emotions they bleed
My heart breaks again with each wicked deed

What do you do when the monster is you?
And it constantly threatens to tear you in two?
My spirit's in tatters and each day I rue
The fact that I pay this foul creature its due!

More poetry

On cold and dark and starry nights
Away from all the city lights
I softly wonder in the grass
and watch the eons slowly pass

A million distant lonely spheres
outlive us by ten thousand years
Like time itself they slowly turn
Without a worry or concern.

Somewhere across the gap of space
some distant, quiet, lonely place
In someplace I may never see
I know you're watching over me.

Art from people.

Goddamn Gaia, I should start uploading my rambles to pastebin so gaia can't cut them apart.

Garen and Kat have that kind of relationship where they'd clash all the time, from ideals to goals, because they're both so strong-willed and neither of them would back down if their goals were challenged. But the fiercest hate can make for love just as ferocious, and that's where they'd be great. Because, as strong-willed as they both are, I think they'd be able to recognize the strength in the other and respect their goals/beliefs, even if they didn't agree with them and tried to dissuade them. ( I hate Garen as a champ, but as a character I can definitely get behind him. ) Yeah, I definitely ship Lux/Talon now, they've got so much in common despite being from entirely opposite ends of the spectrum. I think they'd be great together, even though I really like Ezreal/Lux as a ship. But, while Ezreal and Lux are both prodigies, I feel like Talon and Lux would have more in common. Talon and Lux both know the isolation that life can bring, whereas Ezreal's isolation was a choice of his own when he went out to explore the world.

The lore I want to see most expanded is the lore involving Nasus/Renekton (since their rivalry has spanned entire worlds) and the lore between Kayle and Morgana. I love Morgana to death, how she stands up for the wrong she sees in her own people and wants to right it, and I love how Kayle is the exact opposite, buying into what she's raised to believe and sees dissent as an offense to the wellbeing of her people. I want their lore to go further than just "siblings with different beliefs who hate each other as a result of not seeing eye-to-eye". Someday, I hope to see their lore expanded upon.

[size=11]Let me just start off saying I'm sorry I took so long to respond; I'm preparing for a move to another state, and between certifying my pharmacy licensure between the states and making sure my license will apply there and looking for places to live by visiting the city, I get super busy sometimes. That's why I've taken so long, I apologize, I've been away for a few days. orz


I think what's most ironic about Fizz is that they nerfed a few of his AP ratios and he's [i]still[/i] incredibly annoying to deal with. He slow you, dash to you, pull that omnidirectional invulnerability you mentioned, and still get out safely half the time due to the low cooldown of Playful/Trickster at max rank. It's so incredibly frustrating, because he's not like the other assassins; he doesn't take careful positioning or planning, you can just go all in with him and there's minimal risk to him, even under a turret. Nothing is more frustrating than knowing that you can play as passively as you want, you're still in danger of dying, even under your turret. Fizz needs to have something done about him, because a Fizz mid is generally a one-way ticket to GG for the team that's got him. I don't like to call champs overpowered, because everyone's got their weaknesses (Zed's incredibly open to harass due to the cooldown of Living Shadow, Katarina's vulnerable after she uses Shunpo, Talon has no escapes before 6, Nidalee is easy to take out at close range, Kassadin can't stand up to melee and has a weak laning phase pre-6, etc.), but Fizz literally has none. That's why I hate him, and as fun as he is to play, I don't play him because I feel like a sell-out when I do. Evelynn's not big in the current meta, which I agree, is kind of weird. The real reason I think people don't play Evelynn/Mundo jungle is because a lot of people base their champ choices on what the pros are playing. Vi, Jarvan, all the LCS/pro stream stuff is what people play, and if it's not the pros' streams they're following, it's their own personal preference for champs. The only person who's played Evelynn professionally is Meteos, and that was one game out of the NA LCS, and none of the pros play Mundo, so people don't often play them because they aren't trying to mimic the behavior of someone else. At least, that's what I've noticed and what I think. Jungle champs spike in popularity after LCS, which is why people play Vi so much now; she was a huge pick during LCS for jungle.

I can understand the tradeoff with Shaco though, because if he doesn't get super fed early on he'll fall off mid/lategame. BotRK Shaco is terrifying at any point though, because he can just show up and autoattack your health to minimal levels, then use his clone to damage you further, but it's obvious which is the clone and which is the real Shaco unless they're next-level Shaco players. Yeah, that's basically how I feel about Yasuo. There are a lot of things in his kit that make him inherently ridiculous to deal with, but at the same time there are weaknesses built in. I'm just not sure if the weaknesses balance out the strengths. You can dash behind his Wind Wall to damage him with projectiles, but the rest of his kit is a pain; he can knock you up and ult you, shield himself and burst you down with crits, or dash away as long as there are minions nearby. I don't really enjoy running into him, but it's not like it is with Yi, where I see him and immediately groan and roll my eyes at the faceroll difficulty of his kit. I think maybe I just don't know how to deal with him yet; Yi can be messed up with any CC that doesn't involve slowing him, I've yet to find the kink in Yasuo's kit (outside of dashing behind windwall) that makes him able to be dealt with.

I hope one of these days we run into each other. It's either one of us is ingame when the other isn't, or one of us is online when the other isn't. Someday I hope we're both not busy and get to play together, haha!

Garen and Kat have that kind

Afdjalfk GAIA PLS. orz

"The time for talk is over", "My spirit is not lost!", how can she get any more awesome? I love Vi too, and how she's not a dainty, softspoken woman; she's violent, and she likes punching stuff. She lives by the creed, "Punch first, ask questions while punching", I love that about her. It's really awesome to see women who kick more a** than most men, and that's definitely Vi. I love Jinx too, though. Her insanity appeals to me, as does her desire to cause chaos and destruction simply because it entertains her. A lot of villains have some diabolical plan to take over the world or something cliché like that, she just hates being bored and fixes it by blowing things up. Plus, her lines! "I'm wearing lots of belts...for no reason at all!"

When I saw that, it made me try to think of a ship name for them, but I wound up thinking of a ship name for Malphite/Orianna: Robot Rock. Total crackship that I don't ship at all, but I giggled at the name.

[size=11]I don't even go to the league forums, it's full of trolls and people who don't understand that opinions aren't just cause to verbally attack someone. I see enough toxicity ingame, I take a pass on it in the forums. I think the only real freelo midlane assassin is Fizz, because even if he somehow loses the lane, all it takes is a kill or two and he can snowball the rest of the game and make a comeback from there. He's like Yi, only more annoying because he can make himself invulnerable whether there are enemies present or not with Playful/Trickster. Oh yeah, she's a nightmare with the ward changes. Even knowing regular wards can't detect her, people often won't buy pinks since she can just show up, kill them, and her presence is established without her ever even having to follow up and gank after. If you do jungle with her, I'd suggest 9/21/0 masteries. The jungle creeps hit really hard this season now that they scale up, and she's one of the squishiest junglers you'll ever see. She was squishy [i]before[/i] the jungle changes, she's even squishier now. But when she sneaks into a lane and gets a couple kills or an assist, she snowballs ridiculously hard. I'm sure you know that since you've played her before though, haha. Yeah, he's actually a great pick now! He's got that Shyvana-level clear speed, and his passive makes him inherently sustainable in the jungle. He can grab a Wriggle's and hyperfarm out tanky items if his team's doing well, or grab an Ancient Golem if he's going to focus more on ganking, and either way it's a great call, because he's potent at either. He's not a champ I enjoy playing myself, but I can definitely give him props for being such a solid choice in the current jungle meta.


Oh, alright! I'll definitely give that a go, then! I've never been sure whether she'd be better off with flat AD or ArPen, but I'm going to make it a point to run her with the latter when I finish the page. Just the mention of the name "Shaco" sends horrible figurative shivers down my spine, I detest clowns and I hate stealthy clowns who can leap out of stealth and stab you to death before you've got time to run even more. I'm very good about knowing which Shaco is the real one, though, people have so many telltale signs that give it away. Speaking of Yasuo, how do you feel about him? I don't know whether to love or hate him.

I was determined to see if you wanted to play tonight, but then I went into a match as midlane Ezreal and wound up going 6/13. I could blame it on my accidental smartcast ults in the wrong direction or the fact that I was lagging at 13FPS for the entire match, but after losing that hard with my best champ I didn't even have it in me to stay logged in. I'm all kinds of demoralized. ; ;

I'll definitely check it out! Of the few league ships I have, Garen/Kat is the biggest one. They're the epitome of that warring-nations forbidden love on the surface, and then their interactions throughout the lore depicting them as bitter enemies and sometimes reluctant allies makes for the perfect love/hate ship. I'm far from squeamish, I'm desensitized to everything, haha! Now that I think about it, Talon's a troubled one, and Lux comes from a great family; that makes the dynamic of the ship even better. I think you've got me kickstarted on a fanfiction binge now.

I adore Riven's theme, and how idealistic she is. A Noxian who loves the idea that strength is what matters, but doesn't mindlessly fall in line with the policies and practices of her nation. She's so strong, and even after what she's been through she keeps fighting without once giving in. I adore that. As an ardent lover of Noxus, though, I'm just really glad she didn't wind up allying with Demacia or something after her self-imposed exile. That'd just be tragic. I'm not a fan of her voice either, mainly because her voice actor is the same as Lux's and I'm incredibly biased against anything related to Lux's voice. I do love Riven's lines though!

This time Gaia is definitely trolling me, I previewed it to see if it'd all fit and it made it seem like it would. I'm sorry for the constant two-part comments, gaia hates my long-windedness. orz

Continuing:
and in either case all I could do was retrospect on it and beat myself up. Oddly enough, I got better at ADC by not playing the game, much less the role, for a couple months. It's weird, I'm better at it now than I was when I used to practice it all the time. Maybe it's because I've stopped trying so hard to never make a mistake. I agree, we should play together sometime and see if we can't work out a win together! c:

It really is fun. I love analyzing the positioning of the enemy carry and support, judging whether they'll be able to synchronize based on their cooldowns/proximity, deciding that they're vulnerable to either be picked off individually or locked down together...it's like playing the role of the lane's tactician. I actually don't know why people don't play Karma. She's got a great amount of poke with her Q, and if you use your Mantra on your Q you can hit incredibly hard and slow. You can root people in place with your W and heal yourself if you use Mantra on it, and your shield turns into a miniature version of Talisman of Ascension when you use Mantra on it. She's one of those champs who's played as a support due to their utility, but their kit makes them perfectly able to stand alone as a midlaner too (like Zyra). I recommend giving her a go, she's a lot of fun! I used to be extremely anti-Karma because her chanting got on my last nerve, but when I actually played her for the first time I immediately fell in love.

I have such a love/hate relationship with Lux's character; I adore her youthful optimism and her bright disposition (/is shot for horrible light joke), but her voice grates on my nerves. I love her, though, she's so intelligent. I like her shipped with Ezreal; they're both prodigies in their own right. I've never seen her shipped with Noxians, though I think I'd like to. The forbidden love and/or love/hate relationship tension between two people of eternally warring nations is always fascinating to read. I think my favorite lady of league has to be Leona. She's a bulwark of protection, and I adore how strong of a woman she is, donning that armor, taking up the sword and shield, and protecting others with her life. I agree, though, the lore should be expanded to give each champion a more in-depth story that spans more than a couple paragraphs. I've always felt like their lore was a tease, it gave you just enough insight into their character and history to get a general idea of them, but not enough to feel like you know them.

You were right, by the way, back when we were talking about there being a shortage of support players. I've noticed recently that people are a lot more apt to support, and half the time people will even cal the role willingly when there are others available. It's nice to see! It gives me great hope for the teambuilder queue times.

[size=11]Yeah, I've wondered the same thing about him, actually. I bought him because I had this feeling that he was a champion I could use to carry ranked games (I think the community calls them Freelo champions? I know Fizz is included in the category), and I was right, if I wound up in mid I could take him and carry the match with relative ease. Whether that meant winning the lane and roaming or winning the lane and keeping it pushed so the enemy midlaner couldn't roam, I used to do pretty great with Zed. The only other champions I can effectively carry a game with are Elise and Ezreal. I'm kind of scared to try Zed out again; it's been so long since I've played him that I feel like I've probably gotten rusty, and with the nerf to him I worry I'll mess up his ult and just airball my attacks while they run away and survive. I guess the only way to know for sure is to try him, but I've got reservations. Ahaha, that's pretty funny; I remember when I first got into her, my league mentor told me she was either a jungler or a midlaner. I had zero jungle experience (I didn't learn to jungle until I picked up Elise, which was months later), so I'd try to play her in mid and be utterly confused as to why I was losing my lane. Hate Spike is a double-edged sword, I learned, it can either go exactly where you want it or in a completely ridiculous direction that serves no practical purpose other than to frustrate you.

I must ask then, would you include Riven in the bruiser category? I feel like the term bruiser implies a bit of meatiness, and Riven's pretty glassy when her shield's down, since her AD scaling ratios are bananas and most people just build her full glass. I ask because Riven's my main bruiser, and I don't play many of the others too often (other than bruiser Vi top and bruiser Shyvana when the team's got a dedicated tank already), so I don't know whether to sacrifice her early game AD presence from the AD runepage in favor of ArPen. I always build Brutalizer after Vamp Scepter on her, though, so I can see being a damage machine by 6 when I've got the ArPen from runes and the Brutalizer. Oh, I'm definitely going to make that a page when I grab the runepages, then! I do love sustain, and I've been wanting an alternative to my flat AD mark, AD quint ADC page because I feel like it's incredibly standard and, while not a bad choice in general for any AD Carry, I could have a more optimized page to fit my playstyle better. I've also though about including a mana regen glyph or two to account for a bit of my constant mana expenditure, but I'm not sure I want to sacrifice any magic resist now that Spellthief's Edge supports are common.

Oh wow, I never would've thought of that, the Spirit Visage for his heals. Sometimes I forget about the boost it gives to lifesteal/self-healing, and with a beefy Gangplank that extra health gain from it's gotta be pretty nice. I can definitely dig that. I always worry about building Iceborn Gauntlet on my bruisers; the armor and passive are beautiful, but I sometimes worry that the AP on it is a wasted stat for a lot of champions. Does Gangplank have any abilities that scale well with AP, or is the Frostborn mostly for the other stats/passive effect?

I definitely agree, I notice a lot more wins when I play with a friend or two, and if we're communicating over skype or raidcall the rate of wins increases even more because we can synchronize and plan well ahead of time. You can coordinate ganks with the jungler, let your carry/support know you're ready to all-in, articulate quicker that your lane opponent's left lane, there are just no downsides to it (unless you're shy and awkward like me and talking to people is hard, haha). That's the exact situation I found myself in, I stopped playing as much when I started losing more than I won and didn't feel like there was anything I could do about it. It was either that my skills were too limited, or I made bad calls, and in either case all I could d

            I wish gaia would tell me when I'm reaching the character limit, it looks so silly having a format at the start of a post and the end's cut off so it serves no purpose.

            Continuing from where it cut off:
            root them in place, but she's still got a shield and an escape for if things start taking a turn. I adore Lulu for the same reason. You can poke like crazy with Glitterlance, but if things start going downhill you can shield your carry and polymorphy the enemy to give them a chance to disengage.

            I'm a sucker for character development, there's nothing like seeing a character grow and mature personality-wise throughout the course of a story. What are your favorite ships, then? And your favorite ladies of league?

            I'm sorry for taking so long to reply again, I didn't have much time to be on gaia of late and I'd feel awful about giving you a rushed reply. I do my best conversing when I have a moment to sit back and think about what I'm going to say before I say it, but when I'm in a hurry I sound incoherent because I can't expand upon the things I'm saying as much as I'd like, and as a result it leads to sentences with really unclear meanings at times.

[size=11][list][list][list][list][list]Zed just kind of clicked for me, from the first time I played him I just [i]got[/i] him. The only other time I've really picked a champion up right off the bat was Twitch, but that's a whole 'nother ballpark. Zed feels more fluid to me than Talon, but that's probably because he uses energy instead of mana, so it's hard to put yourself in a position where you have to leave lane thanks to not having the ability to keep fighting outside of autoattacks. I'm going to start playing Talon when I get top from now on; I figure with the tips you gave me and my basic understanding of when to use his abilities, I'll at least not feed. From there it's all uphill. I just hope I can pick him up quicker than I did Evelynn; it took me months to get her down. Oh, that's good news; I hate buying a page and only having it suit one purpose, so I'm actually really glad to hear arpen works for bruisers, too. How is having a lifesteal AD page? I've seen friends of mine run them before, and I've used them when testing out a champ on their accounts to see whether I liked them or not, but I never really got a feel for just how good they are since it was a game or two here and there. Is the sustain enough to stick around in a lane longer, or it like a Doran's Blade, where you get just enough sustain to not get poked out constantly? I agree, attack speed runes are incredibly niche. It'd be for jungling champs like Nunu, Quinn...yeah, that's actually all I can think of. It's one of those down-the-line purchases for when I've got IP to spare and there aren't any champs I'm craving. 


I think I'll take him to top after all, then; I can see mid being hell depending on the matchup, since it's the lane for bursty champs and assassins. I can see it being difficult to survive against a ranged champ due to his melee, and against an assassin I feel like he'd go down pretty quickly due to the extreme bursty nature and ability to chase down targets they possess. What would you recommend building on him as a bruiser? I'd imagine Trinity Force is a staple since I've seen it on just about every Gangplank since its rework, but I could definitely be wrong about that and there be better choices. I looked up guides and all and have a general idea of what to build, but guides lack the personal experience factor that comes in unquestionable handy in actual in-game situations.

I know exactly what you mean. It can be really disheartening to go on losing streaks whether it's ranked or norms. I'm in the same boat, really. I lose more matches than I win, and while sometimes it's because my team's awful, most of the time all I can really do is focus on my mistakes. I get hypercritical of myself, thinking certain battles could've gone differently if I'd done this or that, and that if I'd made smarter choices the outcome of the game would've been different. I agree, it can be really hard to keep playing. That's exactly the reason I don't play nearly as much as I used to; once upon a time I'd be able to spend half my day on the rift. Now I play one or two games a day [i]if that[/i], since most of the time I just play to get my first win of the day bonus and stockpile IP for new champs. I feel like my league career is just one big losing streak with a few wins peppered in.

Tell me about it, aggression's gotten me killed countless times. I had to learn that there's a healthy balance to be maintained between being aggressive and being passive. Get too aggressive, poke your enemy out of lane too hard or too frequently, the jungler will come. If you're in a position to poke them out of lane, chances are you're far overextended enough to be in trouble whether you see them coming with wards or not. I had to learn the hard way that one gank can completely turn a lane around and put you on the defensive from then on. I think that's why I enjoy playing Karma so much. She's able to put a substantial amount of damage onto the enemy, root them in plac

It's been kind of tough on us financially, but it's always like that for newlyweds. We're hoping we can actually make it to our honeymoon this coming year. ;3;

Oooh, that's awesome~
Weddings are such a happy time. Give her my best. ;u;

Shotgun Juggle
            I always get cooldown boots on Zed, because even at max rank Living Shadow's cooldown is just a bit too steep for me. I adore being able to jump walls with the champs I play because I often times walk face-first into a bad situation, and not having his shadow up when I need it is a horrible experience. I think I'll try maxing Shadow Slash first next time, if only for the waveclear; Razor Shuriken is pretty limited in its waveclearing capabilities, what with it being a skillshot and all. I actually haven't played him since the changes they made to him, how is he now? I hear it's harder to use his ult now. They changed Ahri that patch too, but I haven't actually noticed any difference in her. I wonder if the reason I don't have much of an edge with Talon is my runes; I run him with my AD page, which is pretty standard (AD Reds and quints, armor yellows, MR blues), but I hear he works extremely well with armor pen. I've noticed his damage goes bananas when you build a brutalizer, so I make sure to rush one, but do you think I'd fare better with an armor pen page for him and the other assassins? I've always run magic penetration runes on my AP page, but never any armor penetration on my AD. I've been considering picking up a few rune pages after I grab Jinx (I adore her personality and lore, but haven't actually gotten to play her outside of a match or two on the PBE back before her release), should an armor penetration page be one of them? I know I definitely want to make an attack speed jungler page and a lifesteal AD page, too.

            That reminds me, I saw that Shen and Gangplank were both free this week and couldn't help but grin. I've been wanting to try Gangplank out, but taking him to top would be an exercise in futility because I have zero experience with him and top's my worst lane. Your knowledge of him is lightyears beyond mine, where, in your opinion, is the second-best place to play him? I've seen him as support and as a jungler, but I'm not sure which is more effective for him.

            Yeah, that's the nightmare that is ranked. I always feel like s**t when I work my tail off for LP and watch it drop by the tens after every loss. League doesn't think I belong in silver, so I lose 20~ points per loss and it's just the most disheartening thing in the world to see all that progress get chunked that far down. Knowing me, I'll start off the season eager to improve my skills in ranked and give up a week later after multiple-day losing streaks and placement drops.

            Lucian is so rewarding to play. His poke is amazing, and if the enemy's in place long enough to get poked it's fairly easy to combo a passive-double-auto onto them. The only thing I don't like about him is how he devours mana. I've never thought it was worth it to get a Manamune on him, but with my inability to conserve mana due to my utter aggression I find myself having to poke with autoattacks a lot. One of these days I'm going to learn to stop eating through my mana so much on just about every champ I play. Hopefully one day soon. Ahaha.

            Fanfiction, eh? What kind? The shippy kind, or the adventurous kind? I'm guilty of enjoying both from time to time.
