Here on this blog? I write about work, about friends, about bad movies and history and obnoxious room-mates. Or stuff that should be TMI but isn't, trips and good food and books and video games and sports. Lots of sports. Mainly football, hockey, and rugby. Occasionally (a lot) I write fiction but it's bad so don't worry about it and just skip it.
I also crush you like tiny clown car, no?

You think you can come in here--tell me my sister is gone--and expect me to stay here under that corpse of a warchief? She's not my warchief. And I'm going to get my sister's soul, MoonSpeakers be damned. - Kanat Skytotem, Tauren, Balance Druid
Kanat remained asleep after the tear in the Emerald Dream was healed. She woke up only briefly to say goodbye to her younger sister, Kanatlu, before returning to The Sleep. The Druid felt that she was running. This wasn't the Horde she knew. This wasn't what she had spent all her life fighting.
A Blood Elf Sunwalker appeared one day to bring her the worst news of her life: Kanatlu was dead, Bwonsamdi had her soul, and the Horde was fractured in a way that the Alliance seemed posed to over run it.
Something died in the Tauren then. Those that knew her knew this was not the same Kanat that stood against Ragnaros, Kil'Jaden, the Lich King--not at all. All those were to defend Azeroth. Nothing more.
This time it was something more. This time Azeroth hurt her.
And Azeroth was going to pay for it.
I love her. By The Well I do! And I can't do a damn thing here to bring her back! So I'm going and if I die, fine. At least...at least I'll get to see her. - Kanatlu Starkili Retribution Paladin
Kanatlu was originally named Airaile but the name is gone. Now as part of Blood Vengeance, she has taken the name of her fallen beloved, Kanatlu. She was paired up with the Tauren in an expedition for both Taurens and Blood Elves Paladins to speak and learn from one another. There wasn't the intent to fall in love but there it was.
Airaile never had felt wanted, growing up in the streets, dirty and torn in rags. Until big blue eyes worried stared as she helped a snotty Blood Elf up a cliff despite her protests.
Never felt like she could do anything, always feeling like she was a worthless. Then she realized broad shoulders were behind her, depending on her to protect them.
Didn't think anyone could love her. And for awhile a wet nose would touch her forehead to soothe what was thought to be restless sleep.
Then she was gone.
Maybe her sister Kanat hated Airaile--'lu had always said her sister didn't care for Blood Elves too much--and that was fine. But they had one goal in mind: To get Kanatlu's soul back. To give her back her name. And to keep the world and the people in it safe.
Just like she'd want it.
Partner? I need no hunting party. I have Khocha and wyverns no complain. - Kanat Tragon, Mithra, Dragoon sub Samurai, server Asura. Final Fantasy XI
If you think I care about your little Empire or your pitiful Order, you are quite mistaken. - Kanat Fedele, Sith Sorcerer, Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Oh, I know, yes yes--Garleans and such. Blah blah. But what I really want to know is...where's the nearest bar? - Kanat Attia, Machinst, Final Fantasy XIV
They kept saying "How did a Turian like that end up with a woman like her?". - Garrus Vakarian
I know we didn't win 'the big one'. That'll always be a regret of mine. But I don't regret a single moment as a Miami Dolphin. Not one. - Dan Marino, #13. Dolphins fan for life.
The minute I'm just hanging on, just playing for the sake of playing, I'm done. It's about knowing when you're done and making your peace with it. But I'm not done yet. - Peyton Manning, #18. 2nd favorite QB of all time.
Outside of the locker room, I don't care what anyone else says. This isn't a business where you can be worried about what other people think. I believe in myself and my team believes in me. That's all I care about. - Eli Manning, #10. Patriot Slayer and boo. Do not hurt my boo.
Neil Gaiman is amazing. His universes not only entertain, but give you hope. And hope in today's world is in short supply.

Each of us... at some time in our lives, turns to someone - a father, a brother, a God... and asks...”Why am I here? What was I meant to be?" ... It knows only that it needs. But, like so many of us... it does not know what. - Spock, Star Trek: The Motion Picture
We can't control how everyone else acts, Garrus. Only how we act. - Commander Shepard
