12 is by far the tallest individual in the cast, standing at a towering 8ft and a few inches. Because of this (combined with her rather aggressive attitude) she can be very intimidating just in presence alone. She likes to trash-talk people and values her fierce “reputation”, usually trying to ensure she looks good over others (even allies).
I imagine if she had a voice actor she’d have some sort of noticeable British accent.
Toronto-based developer Bloom Digital released the second installment of episodic mobile game “LongStory” on iTunes and Android on Feb. 12. This LGBTQ-positive game is everything I could have asked for as a kid - that is, if smart phone technology to support such games was around when I was younger. (On second thought, let’s not go down that age-shame inducing rabbit hole.)
“LongStory” is a slick, dating/adventure game where the main character navigates their way through Weasel Heights High’s social landscape to solve the mystery disappearance of a fellow student, Em. What’s special about this game is that the player can exercise romantic choice during the course of play, including choosing a same-gender partner or no partner at all. A queer-friendly game on my cell phone? That’s huge.
Steve Rogers receives a Life Model grief therapy decoy, J-507, in the aftermath of dealing with his fiancé, James Barnes’ death. Although he is, initially, upset at receiving this decoy, Steve and J-507 grow to care very deeply for each other, despite the knowledge that LMD’s are incapable of feeling emotions. Designated as Bucky in his Host’s passing, Bucky grows curious of human life and desires to become as real as possible, if only to be the man Steve loves and deserves. But when an underground organization discovers that one of the government’s military issued LMD models has become completely sentient and gained a sense of human individuality, they will stop at nothing to separate man from machine and use Bucky’s true Artificial Intelligence for wicked deeds. The question remains: what makes a human? Is it the flesh and blood we are born with, or is it the soul and desire to love unconditionally, no matter what form it may take?

For those that love Hakuouki or need something new, it’s definitely worth checking because she’s really talented (✿´‿`). For some of her older songs, check both of her Aika’s Best albums. I’m not sure if this is on itunes internationally, but her older songs like Izayoi Namida & Maikaze are (at least for me in Canada)
So please support her! Also her newest song next month for the Shinkai game!!
This began as a small experiment, but I kept thinking about it, and now I want to make a whole comic out of it. It can be thought of as a side project to my main project, Homunculus. It takes place in the same universe but at a different period in time.
GEMINI INDUSTRIES is about the leaders of a large fictional technology corporation. The company was founded by twin sisters Agnes and Annika Summer, and is run by them and a diverse board of directors, each in charge of a different division of the company. The story follows their misadventures as they compete with rival laboratories, invent and test dangerous and ethically questionable new technologies, and develop interrelationships with one another.
All of this is subject to change as I keep working on it. There are also a few other characters I’m not sure if I’ll use/haven’t finished designing yet.
