So I’m doing a thing.

Many of you already know this, but I make Let’s Play videos on youtube. It’s something that I love doing, and as far as I’ve heard, people have enjoyed my videos, too. Unfortunately, I work at a job that drains me so much, both physically and psychologically, that I’ve had to sideline even that just to spend time recovering. I’ve been exhausted, stressed out, and have even injured myself just trying to make ends meet.

I’ve reached out to people before, and the overwhelming support was incredible. I had it even suggested to me a few times that I look to Patreon, which I’d heard of but hadn’t checked out.

Well, now I’ve checked it out, and it looks like a great solution to my situation. The video explains a little, my Patreon page explains more, but the short version is, I want to dedicate my time to creating quality content for people and would love your support so that I can do so.

If you can’t pledge- which, uh, totally understandable, given the current state of the economy and my own position here- I would appreciate a signal boost just as much. I would like to make this work, because making Let’s Plays has been one of the few things keeping my sanity the last few years.

Thank you so much!

Recently someone asked me why I don’t seem to like pewdiepie so to answer I suppose I’ll just say what my first experience watching him was and how I feel about him in general.

I had heard about him being an absolutely hilarious let’s player so I figured I’d check him out. What little I could stomach watching (all of five minutes) was enough to repel me for the rest of my life. Between the inane screaming and churning out of cuss words like a 12 year old figuring out how to swear, and the use of rape as a joke- constantly— I had no idea what most people saw in him. 

Maybe he’s gotten better since, I wouldn’t know. I have zero desire to look up any of his videos again but I figured I should answer this since I find him to be one of the most overrated people on youtube. I just find it annoying how people like him can have 15 million subscribers but people that I feel put so much more time, effort, and fun into their videos like chuggaaconroy can’t even reach a million, and others like toegoff, magicklorelai, or lucahjin cannot even reach a hundred thousand. Sorry if this turned into a bit of a rant but I guess I just needed to get this off my chest.

If magicklorelai voiced a character in DA:I I think she would be a kindhearted dwarf noble because DA dwarves have American accents and she has a regal, serene voice. Out of the two scripts, I think she’d nail the seneschal part!

Let’s Play! Phantasmagoria: Part One: The Descent into Nightmares

Fun fact about an ongoing gag with David Homb being the guest commentator for this LP series: it came about because of a technical screwup while trying to record commentary, where the audio was botched because of a video edit I forgot to make. I feature it at the beginning of my Montage Video- because of the timing of my realizing my mistake, it sounded as though I’d been despairing over Suraht being my guest.

Now, over the course of recording, I’d been talking with David Homb about the possibility of him actually making a cameo appearance for the finale of the Let’s Play. Unfortunately, that ended up falling through.

Even more, the running gag was going to be that Suraht was even responsible for David not showing up, just so he could worm his way into being the guest commentator. That he’d deliberately misled David or intercepted communications somehow.

Ah well.

As a side note, this is one of the only series I implemented editing on as extensively as I did. The episode previews at the end of each video were fun to assemble.

Support MagickLorelai on Patreon

So I have a Patreon, as was suggested to me last time I ran into financial difficulties and was asking for help. I’ve been recording videos for almost the last five years, and I’ve loved every moment of it. The only problem is that, while I love making entertaining content in my Let’s Plays (and other projects, upupupu~), I’m losing a lot of energy at the job I’m at right now just so that I can pay the bills.

If you can help me by becoming a patron or spreading the word by reblogging, I would really appreciate it. You can check out my youtube channel here, or the patreon page directly here.

Thank you so much!

The Golden Binding is closing her doors, much to the chagrin of the employees. While Sophia Shaw laments her limited options, she is interrupted by an unexpected visit by a young man and his friends— a visit that changes the fate of the store forever.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is the super secret (not so secret) project I’ve been working on all this time. If you like what you see, and would like to see more, feel free to support The Golden Binding on Patreon:

And hey! A big shoutout to the extremely talented cast!

Of course there’s Suraht .

Animephobic, who helpfully lent his voice to Timothy, hosts his videos here

And Edwyn Tiong, thank you for jumping in last second. If you’d like to see what else he can do, you can check out his demo reel here.

And of course, I don’t think this would be possible without the talented Chase Johnson filling the role of Brian.

Thank you all so much!

I did it! I finally recorded and put together an entry for the Take Your Place in the Inquisition contest being held by Bioware!

I doubt I stand a chance at winning, as people far more talented than I have put in far superior entries, but I wanted to give it a shot.

Wish me luck!

Rubber Band, a semi-autobiographical flash fiction written by me, read by me. :3

I’m so excited to be done with the first episode of The Golden Binding, to actually have it live after working on it so long… it seems surreal.

Please, go watch it and let me know what you think. I will say, I don’t particularly care for critique on the art- I know it’s not great, and that’s never been my focus, but I can’t really find another artist who will do this much work for free.

But things like writing, editing, character stuff… let me know! I thrive on feedback.

And if you want to help me make this a thing, support on Patreon will help me turn things around in a much needed way.

(and reblogging and spreading it is also a huge, huge help!)

Also, I am debating setting up a tumblr just for posting my LP videos (of which I have many), if only for the sake of enabling discussion and archiving them.

Especially as youtube has become utter shit for discussion purposes.

What do y’all think?

Hello, Everyone! Welcome to my Tumblr page!

Well, actually, I’ve already got a personal tumblr, but this particular tumblr is for posting the videos and fan-related content of my youtube page.

Feel free to send me questions here, and once I have submissions enabled, I’d be happy to feature viewer content. This is meant as a moderately more professional space, however, so bear in mind that not everything will be posted.

I do, however, encourage discussion on my videos— especially as youtube seems to have changed to discourage the community as it already exists.

Thank you for watching my videos!

I don’t think you understand

This is a very singing-shy me (I still do not have confidence to sing legit in front of others) and my friend Suraht (who also has a tumblr) doing a duet for My Little Pony.

This needs to be shared.
