I actually really like the poorly lit, slightly blurry pictures I took immediately after coming back to my hotel after the competition at Comikaze because I look appropriately tired, beat down, disheveled, and mildly crazy enough to be Act III Lyrium-Crazed Knight-Commander Meredith. By this point in the night, I’d worn 25 lbs of armor, a corset, and 3″ heels for about 10 hours, most of which were spent on my feet. I peeled the armor off of me, went to the hotel pool with my con roommates, and wept for my bleeding feet. 

CONFESSION: 

I’ve thought about this for a long time, and have come to the conclusion that the reason Cullen bothers me so much in DAI is because no one really calls him on his behavior (or the lack of it, really) in Kirkwall. Yes, I understand he was traumatized, but that in no way lessens the fact that due to his inaction, many mages and Templars and regular people were hurt or worse.   “All it takes for evil to succeed is for a good person to look away.”

Final fitting complete and final straps added. Captain Shepard is complete! I’d like to thank @obiruskenobi who made the original mashup fan art that inspired this build.

PC GAME SUGGESTION

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2 are both on sale on steam for 2.99 each. Those are some damn fine video games that are worth well over that. If you like Bioware, check’m out. If you like rpg’s, check’m out. If you like star wars, check’m out. If you are interested in what is probably the best written starwars story since Empire strikes back, check’m out.

  • When she says:I'm fine
  • What she means:I can't believe Bioware suddenly dropped the denomination system when Inquisition came out. Like, varying denominations of copper, silver, and sovereigns (or bits, crowns, and royals if you're really fucking fancy) made sense, so why do we only use gold pieces in Inquisition? Did inflation fucking skyrocket just between 9:37 and 9:41 Dragon, meaning they quickly withdrew any copper and silver from circulation; is it just them trying to make getting into the games a bit easier; or am I just making dickloads of money? If the latter, how mad would Hawke be and what are the chances that she'd just die a little more inside knowing that the Inquisitor is swimming in it? I need to know, this is my livelihood.

CONFESSION: 

There’s a line from Mass Effect 2 that summarizes my feelings about Solas: he “is a tragic figure, but not a sympathetic one.” The choice he had to make in the past is heartbreaking, as are the unintended consequences of that choice. But what he is doing now is despicable, it is unjustifiable. It doesn’t matter that he feels guilty, or that he’s a lonely and tortured soul, or that he was a good and brave man. He cannot and should not be saved

Most games developers: this is a chair.

Bethesda: this is a chair. You may sit on it.

Bioware: THIS ISN’T JUST ANY CHAIR. THIS CHAIR IS OUT MADE OF THE WOOD OF A TREE THAT WAS WATERED BY THE TEARS OF A GIRL TRAGICALLY MURDERED BY THIEVES IN THE DARK WOOD OF HARROWING VILLAGE. THE CHAIR MOANS AS YOU PLACE YOUR AMPLE BUTTOCKS UPON ITS EXTERIOR. IT EMBEDS THE FACES OF THOSE HATED THIEVES UPON YOUR MIND WITH ITS DARK MAGICS. PERHAPS IF YOU FIND AND KILL THEM, YOU CAN BRING PEACE TO THE SPIRIT OF THIS CHAIR. It may also give you a cool chair-powered amulet.
