james t kirk is an incredibly important fragile unexpected beautiful character who’s flawed and melodramatic and dorky and handsome and sexual and weird and HUMAN and cranky sometimes and deeply in love other times and a li’l chubby most of the time and he needs to be protected from everyone who thinks he’s a dumb hick who goes through women like tissues. protect james t kirk. this is the new prime directive
If my heart was a compass you’d be north
If me heart was a house you’d be home.
So this is basically for Eve. Since she felt pretty insecure yesterday I wanted to do something to cheer her up. I know that this can’t erase your doubt but probably it makes you smile a little at least.
a quick ps job on the paler ‘default' inquisitor look released today. i have no discernable art skills, but i do have lightroom and ps. so apologies to the artist (rhodes, i think?) for any trespasses. if i'm starting with a default base to choose from, i'd like her to look like this.
in most of the modern AUs i see everyone is made human and i???? I DONT WANT THAT!!! i want modern fantasy where pretty much everything is the way it is in the real world but with mages and elves and qunari and dwarves and everyones just living everyday life
omg i so want this fic. Especially grumpy as fuck Fen getting annoyed with Zev snap chatting everything he’s doing. and I just realized he’s reading the Hungry, Hungry Caterpillar, omg.
I want this badly y’all.
ah man i don’t know what to say about that whole cameron lee thing
I can speak to it generally… the romances are more complex both in type of romances going forward and how you go through that romance. The different types of sexual orientation of the different kinds of characters around you is also more complex than in previous games. I think there’s going to be a lot more realistic… realistic… you know what I mean — anyway, more engaging and more involved than in previous games. That’s definitely the goal, and we are definitely going to go out there with some characters just being one sexual orientation. And that previously wasn’t the case. The real world reflects that so we’re going to make a game that reflects that as well. (x)
like i know that the bisexuality of DA2 characters was largely just a mechanic so that everyone could get what they wanted (i don’t know how else to interpret anders telling a male hawke about his past with karl but not telling a female hawke—don’t get me wrong, isabela for example is explicitly bisexual, but not every option is explicitly bi the way she is)
and if you’re going to actually have dedicated bi options (according to this tweet that’s the case) as well as dedicated gay/straight options, then fine, i guess i’m all for going more ‘realistic’
i just find it disheartening that in a world with elves and dwarves and dragons people still find four bisexual people gathered in one place to be unrealistic
but w/e. i’m disheartened, but i’ll wait for the game before i get disappointed. (not to say anyone else shouldn’t be disappointed. i totally understand. it’s awful.) mostly, i’ll wait to see what types of characters they slot into those ‘solid’ sexualities. because i love promiscuous rogue bisexuals but that’s not the only type of bisexual there is, you know?
ah, bioware. you’re better than most but there’s still room for improvement. and i’ll keep throwing my money at you—of course. you still give me more of a reflection than i get to see pretty much anywhere else. but don’t get complacent, now. /head pats
never not reblog
And then there’s good ol’ America
This actually makes me so angry. The truth is right here and people see it and brush it aside. We really could make things better. But no, America apparently wants to suck forever.
troyesbooty I ENVY YOU SO HARD
I need approximately five hundred.
Whoaaa, that’s trippy…I can totally imagine how it moves..
There you go, further confirmation that Cameron’s interview might’ve just been a little bit of foot-in-mouth. Sadly sometimes happens when you translate spoken words to print, or have to chop up interviews for articles to get the most exciting bits.
