risuquest  asked:

It's really sad to hear that the fandom is dying because WATGBS is such a good game and I kinda like its lore?? I guess I never made an actual OC (other than a pathetic samewada fanchild) because Mogeko's verses seem to be like very complex and tied to each other in one way or another and it's like kinda intimidating, you know? Like, I'm not sure of what I can and can't do when it comes to the basis for an OC.

Yeahhh I mean

We haven’t gotten any new WATGBS material (the manga just follows the events of the game) and I think Funamusea is focusing more on his other character Satanick? And I mean everyone has their favorite OC but there’s next to no updates with WATGBS so the interest in it has sort of fizzled out…

And it really is a shame because yeah, the worlds are obviously interconnected (Idate travels around, Chlomaki obv has connections to the rest of the Witch World and the Sea and I think a character from Poison Bugs was on one of the islands?) and it would be so cool to get some more stuff for the game from the creator (also the deviantart tag gives you more and better content than the tumblr tag and that is a problem)

One of my biggest criticisms about WATGBS was that most of the characters really weren’t completely developed (I’d say that Wadda, Sal, Samekichi, and maybe Fukami are the best developed characters) but I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that we don’t know everything about the lore of the game and nothing about most of the characters’ backstories. I’d love to learn about Sal’s descent into the Sea of Death, everything about the Sea God and the princesses, what Cherryblod was doing before he settled down, how Wadda found her familiars, etc etc. I hope that we get a prequel eventually.

The game is especially dear to my heart because it’s actually inspired me to make my own RPG game and it’s inspired parts of a few OCs of mine. I hope we get more stuff eventually.

I was like really deep into the Lore of diary of a wimpy kid when I was a young teen I ate those books up and there r some jokes that still hold up really well

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…

Star Trek is absolutely just soap operas set in space

“A soap opera is a drama with a large cast experiencing dramatic events in their day-to-day lives…. designed to be viewed intermittently.” (source)

there are so many more i love it so much

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.

as if one fanmade botw design from me wasn’t enough ehe,,  i was binging on some theory vids and i got thinking.. while the other design was based on nomadic influences derived from my first exposure/vision of this open world genre, i didnt look into the lore up until later on.

but i really like the idea of the princess being forced into refuge (most likely w/ the Sheikah) while she waits for the Hero to reawaken from his 100 year slumber. thus she is tasked to carry the legacies of both her Sheikah caretakers and her Hylian heritage, forced to combat that of her enemies and lonely isolation.

i.
I am a god: I do not love, Apollo sneers
with his teeth bared against the dawn,
Not like this, selfless and desperate
and vulnerable
ii.
So be human tonight, Icarus pleas
back arched against the earth as
Apollo traces his unbruised neck,
gold smearing on skin,
the whisper of fingertips
ghosting along a pulse 
iii.
in another world, they meet every night
behind a faded neon bar when even the dead are sleeping
don’t you know we’re going to live forever baby,
Apollo grits out as he cleans the blood
off Icarus’s face, spits on his bruised knuckles
iv.
i’m a fucking martyr, Icarus hisses against
Apollo’s lips; for once, the gods are silent
as Icarus blows smoke into his lover’s mouth,
his bitter laugh the only sound
ringing at the end of the world
v.
I will not catch you when you fall, Apollo warns
and I will not stop loving you, Icarus promises
vi.
he is still smiling when his back hits the water
and the waves crumble his burning wings to ash

Something that’s easy to forget when you’re looking at the abstracted world map is how insanely huge the Beacon of the Radiant Eye must be. For the largest clans to live there - plus a goddess residing at the top - it must be larger than anything constructed on Earth. I picture the Tower of Babel when approaching it in lore/art, more of a sprawling vertical fantasy city than the lighthouse depicted on the map.

In my lore, the Beacon is a Second Age relic, expanded and built upon by generations of dragons. It’s always under construction in one part or another; expansions, repairs, and renovations are constant facts of life in the Beacon. There are clans that settled on the exterior of the tower hundreds of years ago that are a mile from the edge today (and clans that settled deep in the Beacon when the world was new that they say still survive down there to this day).

The presence of the Lightweaver and the latent magical energy of all the dragons residing in the area warps space in almost Arcane ways, so no-one is quite sure exactly how big the Beacon is. Space is highly contested in some areas, but rare is the dragon that doesn’t have a chilling story about getting lost in an abandoned story of the Beacon on some dark night.
