HAPPY BIRTHDAY, @damasath/ @laxusthelightning!

I thought you might like your two top OTPs dressed up and waiting with presents for you~ I mean, what else would promise a good B-day right??? ANYWAYS, you know how important and precious you are to me and I really hope this day will be somewhat enjoyable for you! Stay as awesome as you are and feel much loved <3

Bird emperor looking for young explorers by the name of Ezreal that he can rip apart and feed to the jackals. New lore considered advantage. Any takers?

[ I hate lore “drama” as much as any other person here, but I have to point out very kindly that comments such as “How can Riot write their own character OOC.”/ “How can people on tumblr think they know what’s OOC for characters.” are actually meaningless and ignorant because if you look at Viktor’s fanbase, we are basically a very diverse group of people from different genders, social standings, countries and overall different experiences. 

So to think that a group as diverse, most of which haven’t talked to each other would alone come to the same conclusions about a single topic, are for some reason wrong, and you - who has seen Viktor twice on free week know what is good or not for him, is very offensive and ignorant. Most of the Viktor fans have the same ideas about him and I don’t know half of them - those don’t even know me. Yet we came to the same conclusion because we saw something in Viktor. And those same people have every right to feel like the characterization wasn’t or was good. They can either like it or hate it, but their thoughts are more valid than the ones of people who never had any interactions with this muse.

 I wouldn’t jump into the business of Poppy muns, Azir muns, Diana muns or any muse that’s not mine and complained or praised the lore changes. So please I do know you want to feel some moral superiority over everyone that doesn’t like the change but you end up being an asshole and all you do is bring unnecessary drama in the community. If you open up a post and think “I should insult a huge group of people to feel better.” consider doing something you love, getting a hobby, or simply enjoying your space and the lore you like. ]

Ur fics are lovely! Fly on the wall is so so good! I love claws that snatch as well, but full on CTS smut tho? I am ready for explicit details after reading satya sigh over just how good werewolfs are in "bedding women" I am here for thirsty satya.

Aight aight so I’ve been thinking about it and I’ll most likely do a smut chapter at some point. I made the werewolf lore pretty clear that going into heat is a thing so it would be rude not to. 

As for Satya. 

I cannot tell you how happy I am that everyone just accepted that she’s just this Vampire Lord/Goddess in this AU. Just the fandom collectively knows she is queen bae
Satya is queen. All hail. 

Idea

Would anyone be interested if I made a sidelong to post stuff from the game series I’m working on? Like character art, lore concepts, and such? I dunno if I SHOULD, since there’s the potential for theft, but I really wanna post abt my original stuff more. Let me know what y'all think!

[ On why I appear very much calm and curious about the new lore. ]

[ This one is for the Viktor fans that see eye to eye with me, especially @the-glorious-evolution-fanart. If we ignore the fact that last week I got few anons telling me to kill myself or whatever, I actually do have a ground to stand on when it comes to why I am very much calm.

I feel like Jayce’s lore is not a genuine representation. History is written by the victor, and I believe when your City is on the social, economical and literal top over a smaller city/district like Zaun, you can afford to write yourself as the hero of a story. That was one of the most common interpretations on Jayce’s old lore, even among people who did not care about lore and people generally not on tumblr. So perhaps Riot decided that they should play with that already solid and interesting thing?

The lore itself feels very much romanticized? Almost like a Disney story that needs to teach us a lesson “Don’t be mean to people, but you can change and at last defeat the ultimate evil.” Jayce was an arrogant jerk, he learned his lesson and now he must defeat the “great evil” he created which is Viktor. 

Not only that but the entire writing style feels very much like a novel. Jayce makes friends with the strange man who is just as smart as him, however the man turns out to have dark intentions, opposing to the shiny, perfect, overly smart arrogant Piltovan inventor. Their relationship is almost biblical when it comes to two close friends that loved each other and until they fell off because one turned evil. Even with the addition of things such as “Viktor was Jayce’s only friend.” 

And then you have Viktor’s villainies, which don’t really correspond to him as a character or the direction Riot tried to take with Camille and the other stories from this lore expansion. They are overly gross and scary, they are meant to make us hate him. And Jayce turns out to be the “morally gray” hero in the end. 

In addition things such as “Kill him.” and “Viktor’s body wasn’t found” were added on purpose to make the story as cliche as possible. I strongly want to believe this is in fact, a story. That it’s not meta lore for Jayce, rather how some writer romanticized what happened.

And that perfectly corresponds with Viktor’s old lore as well as our interactions with him as a community. Where everyone saw a villain we saw a hero. And perhaps Riot decided to play with that. I really want to believe Riot will pull a 180 twist in Viktor’s lore and tell us that Viktor in fact did not do all those things and give us the true story. However sometimes I feel that that is just wishful thinking. Perhaps we are to remind Riot we still care about Viktor, even if we think they already know.

So in lore, vampires have this trait that I’ve almost never seen used, and that’s the fact that vampires are OBSESSED with counting things. Like, the Count on Sesame Street was almost certainly created specifically as a vampire because of this piece of lore.

Like, I read this vampire book years and years ago that explained that a surefire way to protect yourself from vampires getting into your house was to spread a ton of seeds on your doorstep–poppy and mustard seeds were particularly recommended for the purpose. Basically, if you suspected someone to be a vampire, all you had to do was drop a sackful of seeds on the ground in front of them.

If they didn’t immediately start counting them, they were not a vampire. However, if they WERE a vampire, they’d be seized with the urge to count all the seeds and they would not budge from that spot until they knew how many seeds there were in total. The point was to keep them there until the sun came up and killed them, because if they hadn’t counted all the seeds by sunrise they wouldn’t be able to leave. Presumably you could just go about the rest of your evening as normal, though no word on whether it’s possible to make them lose count and start over.

Having remembered this piece of lore, I want fewer stories about brooding tortured Edward Cullen-esque vampires. I want to start seeing more stories about math nerd vampires.

Vampire accountants who are an honest company’s best asset and a corrupt company’s bane because they are frighteningly accurate with the accounts and will not hesitate to blow the whistle on a CEO scamming money because fuck you for making the numbers wrong.

Vampire cashiers that don’t need to look at the register screen because they already mentally calculated your total. 10-items-or-less vampires who know goddamn well you have 20 items in that basket and NO, you cannot just slip in with the rest.

Vampire math tutors who are constantly in high demand and have to hold lotteries to see who gets to be tutored by them.

ultimate dragon age meme: one villian

• DARKSPAWN

The Chantry teaches us that it is the hubris of men which brought the darkspawn into our world. The mages had sought to usurp Heaven, but instead, they destroyed it. They were cast out, twisted and cursed by their own corruption. They returned as monsters, the first of the darkspawn. They became a blight upon the lands, unstoppable and relentless. The dwarven kingdoms were the first to fall. And from the deep roads, the darkspawn drove at us again and again, until finally we neared annihilation…

Clearing up from FNaF misconceptions

I’ll do it in bullet point form to make it easier to understand.

1. I do not hate the game Five Nights at Freddy’s and I am not shitting on the game Five Nights at Franky’s. If you watch me actually play the game I try the new game and figure out what it’s about with the help of two vets, learn and appreciate the lore, and find myself enjoying the game despite the pre-meditated notion to want to dislike the game because of how a loud sub-group of the FNaF fandom behaves (toxic af). I put aside my differences with the crazy fanbase of the game (again not everyone, if you are not batshit bonkers then I am not talking about you), found myself to be enjoying it, even though I did not find myself as startled by the content as others would consider proper. 

 2. With the evidence as presented here, I would like to further state that in the previous Tumblr post I never once discredited the game Five Nights at Frumpy’s, but moreso the inane concept that individuals are expecting a person to force false reactions towards content to appease desires that he, given the current context that the individual has already stated, finds no terror in the subjected video game entertainment, is purely, and utterly, batshit ludicrous and I will poke fun at that notion till I am too old to care anymore. (Yes that was a long butchered run-on sentence and I am damn proud of my knife-work)

 3. In conclusion, y'all have a nice day, but please refrain from putting words in someone’s mouth who is fully able to speak their peace on the matter like the big boy he is - and though you may see yourself as some kind of holy crusader for your video game fandom, you’re making yourself out to be the chihuahua that just, won’t, shut, up. And that’s no good.

“And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction. The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;  Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus;  Simon the Zealot;  and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.” Matthew 10:1-4 (ESV)

RHIANNON: She played a number of roles familiar to Celtic mythology: the Otherworld Mistress, the Calumniated Wife and finally the Sovereign Queen. Earlier prototypes of this Rhiannon, whose mythology is expounded in First and Third branches, can be found in the pagan goddesses Matrona ‘Great Mother’, and Epona, the Gaulish horse goddess found throughout Europe, as far apart as Rome and Hadrien’s Wall. The myth of Rhiannon represents the transitional point from the pagan rituals of the Horse Goddess cult, into its sublimated form: the chivalric mysteries of courtly love.
