i. how does it feel to drown? can you taste the fire slicking down your throat? does the salt burn like vodka, like an endless shot pouring past your clenched teeth and gaping mouth; does the water pound relentlessly on your head, beating wave after wave as you flail beneath the surface – rippling – wave after wave after wave –
ii. he, with his brine-water blood, red salt thudding heavy within his petal veins – he drowns in a sea of golden ink, fingers tangled in long black hair as he cries cradled in arms carved from bone, a voice, crash on rocks: remember, the sea is your home
iii. so you drown in a sea of molten pyrite gold
iv. yet his fingers, his eyes, his wide scar-riddled back; breathe in the scent of dirt, the bark, the sap; exhale the salt and inhale caress; moonlight puddles silver in his hair; and oh zeus he’s more beauty than you could ever bear
v. it’s midnight, and the amethysts glow soft in the moonlight, silver and lilac washing over his skin and you breathe in the forest and the musty scent within.(and his heartbeat washes over you and settles in your bones)
vi. patroclus, here, i am here, i am finally home
silver washes over you and settles in your bones | a.c.

i mean, i get it as a business decision; it certainly is a lot cheaper at various levels of zots to outsource your fandom and let people have it out over tumblr, twitter, reddit, facebok - you’re not paying for the server usage of a quickfire community that uses a lot of resources daily (tumblr, twitter, reddit and facebook are), you don’t need dedicated mods to keep the wank at bay or take people away from their actual jobs for it (QAs shouldn’t be modding forums, the Community Manager can focus on promo instead of wank)
at the same time, nuking the entire forum forever is such a salty move?? it sounds so petty? specially when the old bioware social pages are still there, the mods and projects are still there. keeping a static, lightweight, read-only version of the forums archived can’t possibly be more resource intensive than what’s already archived as mods and downloadable files?
there are years worth of resources in the forums, actual constructive and insightful discussions (even among the wank), legacy user-to-user support to old game issues you to this day don’t find anywhere else, helpful player guides, the history of whole sub-communities that were formed there, actual important lore answers and clarifications from the devs and writers that can’t be sourced or traced back to anywhere else… this is years of fandom history just going up in smoke, and… for what? haven’t we learned that letting fandom history disappear in ways that can never be recovered again is always regrettable in the long term? what does bw even get from erasing such a huge and formative part our history as a fandom (a lore intensive, discussion based and source dependent fandom) like that? i don’t get it.
