By the way, if you start your game development process with “It’s just gonna be the same format as those anime dating sims, but with an actual story”–that’s you, starting your project by figuring out the core mechanic. Your core mechanic is dialogue trees.
aces keep claiming that theyre facing erasure because no one knows what asexuality is (which isnt… what erasure means… at all) and at the same time oppression and everyone is ready to assault them upon hearing that they’re ace
like…. you’re saying that no one knows what asexuality is and also that everyone hates asexuals by default. which is it
So many people are saying that the A in the acronym stands for Ally. These very same people are saying that to be in the acronym you have to face discrimination because of your sexual orientation. Somebody please explain to me what discrimination straight allies face due to their sexual orientations. Come on. Enlighten me.
The A is for Asexual. Asexuals face discrimination due to their sexual orientations. Just because it is not the same discrimination faced by, say, gay people, does not make it okay.
Asexuals face discrimination. Asexuals belong in the acronym. The A is for Asexual.
but do you ever think about hunk’s character development and how amazing it was? because he’s really anxious and afraid of what they’re facing but when he saw the balmerans, he knew that he has to change. he listened to shay, he talked to her about freedom and it seemed so surreal to him that she didn’t know the meaning of it, so he decided that it’s his duty to teach her, to teach all of them, to free them and protect them. hunk is truly a legendary defender of the universe and i’m so proud of him.
Do you have any clue what that was to me, what this whole thing is to me? See, I have training in this shit. I’m not making it up as I go along, like with the stitches and the surgery and the… I asked you to come with me because you’re brave like my brother and sometimes you actually make me feel safe. And I wanted you here because you’re alone. Probably for the first time in your life. And because you’re stronger than you think you are, which gives me hope that maybe I can be, too. I could’ve gone with Tara. I could’ve told her I loved her, but I didn’t because I was afraid. That’s what’s stupid. Not coming out here, not facing my shit. And it makes me sick that you guys aren’t even trying because you’re strong and you’re smart and you’re both really good people!
Bucky stared at Tony from the passenger seat. “You mean to tell me that the reason you broke into a Hydra facility, somehow managed to take out thirty guards, reversed my programming, and took us both on the lam is because you liked my face?”
“What can I say?” Tony drawled. “I’m a sucker for blue eyes and a tragic backstory.”
criminal minds is great for ethical dilemmas, for instance, the show discusses important subjects about victim-hood and perpetrators and the intersection between the two, and sometimes the lead actor of the show kicks the godawful shitty humanoid stain upon humanity writer/producer of the show and none of us know what the fuck to think.
Theory: How Felicity and BF will break up and how it plays in to Olicity’s rebuild
So, I’ve got a theory that combines the details/specifics of
how Felicity and the BF will break up with how those very same details/specifics will
be the catalyst for the Olicity rebuild.
With me so far? Okay, here we go…
It has been established so far that the big gaping hole in
Felicity’s life is TRUST:
-Stemming from her father’s “abandoment”
-Underscored by Cooper’s faked suicide
-Compounded by Oliver’s lies
So what have the writers done? They’ve decided to give her a
love interest that embodies the ultra-honest, straightforward, 110% open, life-sharing person
So, if this person is exactly the type of person that Felicity needs—the
type that she deserves even—what will be the cause of their breakup? Because, let’s
face it, whether it’s after 5 episodes or a full season, they WILL break up.
Now, the obvious answer is, “Well, they’ll break up
because, deep down, she is still in love with Oliver.” But that is NOT
what I’m talking about. In fact, it’s already been established that she didn’t
break up with Oliver for lack of love. They have love for each other in SPADES.
She broke up with him because love is only half the equation. The other half is
trust and, when push came to shove, she didn’t have his.
So, with that in mind, what I REALLY want to talk about is what
SPECIFIC series of events will go down with the BF that will result in the
demise of their relationship? What are the details, the words spoken, the
And, as I was thinking about it, I realized that it would
make the most sense from a storytelling perspective if the details that broke
them up, were the very same details that helped rebuild Olicity. What’s more,
it’s already been established what needs to be fixed in order for Oliver and
Felicity to reunite:
ok a small thing I was thinking of today.. its not much but I felt like revisiting it again.
I was thinking about the look on his face here.. and the tone of his voice..
Its the tone he always uses when he talks to her, that softening of the voice that we’ve all come to know so well it comes to Carol. But its also just the concern on his face because he really doesn’t know. what was done to her and it worries and concerns him like it does with no one else.
Because not knowing is worse than knowing. If you don’t know you can think of all all kinds of horrible things. Things that happened when you are not there to protect someone Was she hurt? Physically, emotionally? Both maybe. Just how bad did they mess with her. He dosen’t know what happened to her. Just like before, he suspects but he dosen’t know..
And she won’t tell him.. even though she’s close to doing it..
I was thinking of this because the concern he shows for her is visible on his face and in his voice when he talks to her. Dosen’t have to say much to prove that to me or anyone else.
He loves her that’s why he’s worried. Even though he can’t quite get her to talk and won’t force her to, every thing in his body language around her in this scene shows it.
Its the concern on his face and voice that always gets me here the most and that seems to be a lovely exlusive for her. And a beautiful example of just how lovely these two are on screen together and just how precious little of it we’ve gotten lately.
I want more of it. Because by god its so beautiful to see it onscreen like this.
