So yesterday I got up and was like "I am going to be so productive today! I am going to do ALL THE THINGS and get my todo list under control!"

"Actually," said my brain, "You are going to write 1500 words about Les Amis playing paintball."

"That's what I said," I repeated. "1500 words about Les Amis playing paintball."

A vaincre sans péril (1533 words)
Fandom: Les Misérables - Victor Hugo
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Enjolras (Les Misérables), Grantaire (Les Misérables), Courfeyrac (Les Misérables), Feuilly (Les Misérables), Bossuet Laigle, Les Amis de l'ABC
Additional Tags: Paintball, Canon Era, War Games, Fluff with foreshadowings of canonical character death, references to alcohol
Summary: So Courfeyrac talked to Grantaire and Grantaire hooked him up with a man who loaned him about a dozen air guns modified to fire beeswax marking rounds, and some quilted canvas protective smocks, and then Courfeyrac cajoled all his friends into spending a week at one of his father's estates playing war games, which Courfeyrac still maintains was one of his better ideas.

...unexpected crackfic aside, though, I have been leveling up in HabitRPG a lot faster than the other new people in my party? I don't think it's that I'm that much better at buckling down and doing stuff, though. I think it's partly the aforementioned tendency to automatically optimize games, and partly that I came to it having already leveled up many times in "making to-lists". I am probably about level 88 in "making to-do lists" at this point.

Anyway I reached the level where I get to pick a character class. The trick with Habit RPG is that once you do your character sheet the only way to change it is to give them money, so I have to pick exactly right. Anybody have any advice? The choices are warrior, healer, mage, and rogue. I leveled up so fast (with help from well-chosen spells and quests from our leader jam) that I don't really have any idea what the advantages are.

I am basically 100% always a Ranger in "what d&d class are you" quizzes, if that helps. :P

Speaking of me losing saving rolls, I am super-tempted to do Remix Redux this year. I've wanted to do it FOREVER and this is the first year that I can recall that I actually qualify. On the other hand, I just failed out of intoabar. And I'd have to come up with a list of fandoms I can write. And the only other remix exchange I've done ended poorly. Somebody talk me out of this please. Or help me talk Les Mis people into signing up.
