but i cannot wait for this game

1 more month!

Ahhhhhh I haven’t seen my boyfriend since November and in a month we will be together again. I cannot wait. I have missed that little shit. Plus I get to leave the country for the first time. Visiting Ireland and Northern Ireland. And a small lay over in Iceland to have some of the Mountain’s vodka. Plus the boyfriend’s has a friend who was an extra in game of thrones and going to take us on a tour of where they film. But most important I will be with him, sleeping well, feeling good, and just overall yayness

I am so damn excited for SMTM6 likeeeeee

But I’ll probably be able to watch it only after the end of my exam period (which will be like the end of June sigh, at least I’ll be able to binge watch it I guess lmao)

And I am dying to see the 7th season of Game of Thrones I CANNOT WAIT

Day Ninety

-Today I have been entrusted with the responsibility of being the operator. This seems like an oversight as I have next to no idea of how to be the operator. We will see how this goes.

-I found a pair of Valentine’s Day socks depicting a glorious Norse warrior with the caption, “I’ve taken a great Viking to you.” This is the single greatest seasonal item I have ever seen in my expansive seasonal item-hunting life.

-I inadvertently stumbled upon a solid stock of doomsday-ready supplies on a shelf in the hanger room. Hand-powered radios. Flashlights. Baby lotion. Everything one could ever need for armageddon.

-When given the phone, I was told to expect very few calls. This was a relief. I received many calls. I crossed my fingers I had been forwarding the calls correctly and not simply hanging up on confused callers. I still have no proof either way.

-I watched a toddler sprint off to the end of an aisle, wait for his mother to get close, and then sprint off again. This continued through the entirety of the store until he eventually sat down and let her catch up. Never again will I believe video game chase sequences to be unrealistic.

-A decidedly-creepy man asked a female coworker for a spare print ad. After being handed one, he walked off for five minutes to then return to her. He pressed a clipping from a Valentines page against her stomach. The cut-out paper read, “Let’s be friends.” I cannot be sure, but something in me says that this may not be the most effective method.

-From across the store, I heard the voice of a young boy chant, “Let me have my boobies back.” I cannot even begin to imagine the sort of monster who would take them from him.

Destiny 2 Reveal Stream: Notes

Here are my notes from the reveal stream, with some concluding thoughts at the end. All of this information is available from the Bungie reveal stream, and is not speculation unless marked as such:


Story:

In the beginning of Destiny 2, the Last City has fallen. Dominus Ghaul, leader of the Cabal Red Legion, has laid waste to the Tower and to the City itself, and his legions have torn our home apart. 

The reveal trailer shows us fighting through the tower in the first campaign mission, called “Homecoming,” in which we battle alongside the Vanguard until Amanda Holliday deposits us atop some kind of Cabal ship, where we attempt to face down the bad guy.

Unfortunately, we fail, and Dominus Ghaul succeeds in deploying some sort of device that places the Traveler in a cage, instantly draining the Guardians of Light, and causing us to lose our powers. We cannot go back to the Tower.

In response, the Vanguard scatters. Ikora has fled to Io out of anger, Zavala is on Titan healing and having an existential crisis - “Are we Guardians even without the Light?”, and Cayde-6, in attempting to play the hero, has gotten himself into trouble on Nessus. Apparently, the Speaker has disappeared. More on these new worlds below.

In the campaign, we will have to track down and collect the Vanguard, as well as fight the new Red Legion enemy, led by Dominus Ghaul. Dominus Ghaul believes that he, based on his past experiences (which were not elaborated upon), is most worthy of the Traveler’s blessing, and does not understand why Humanity was chosen. He has come to Earth to prove his worthiness, and sees humanity as being in his way. He is not a “psychopath” bent on genocide. Luke Smith described him as “Having his stuff together,” and “Like Alan Rickman in Die Hard.”

Destiny 2 is a game about loss, and transitions into an experience about recovery and reclaiming what is ours.


Classes:

Shown classes remain the same: Hunter, Warlock, and Titan. Nova Bombs, Defender Bubbles, and Golden Guns were shown but not remarked upon. However, new Super abilities were showcased:

  • Titan Sentinel: A Titan with a voidlight shield that can be used to block damage, thrown at enemies, or used in melee combat. There also appeared to be some new kind of Striker Titan Dash and a different sort of ‘Ice Wall,’ neither of which were discussed.
  • Hunter Arcstrider: A Hunter with a staff of arclight that focuses on acrobatic melee combat. 
  • Warlock Dawnblade: A Warlock with a sword made of solar light that can be used in melee combat or to fling ranged attacks. Warlocks also appeared to be able to place some sort of buff zone beneath them, one of which “empowered” the player.

These look pretty awesome.


Weapons:

Weapon loadouts have been revamped to give players more flexibility. Weapons are now divided into three categories:

  • Kinetic
  • Energy
  • Power

New weapons:

A variety of new weapons were shown. In addition to hand cannons, sniper rifles, shotguns, pulse rifles, and shotguns, we saw:

  • A type of SMG
  • Grenade launchers
  • Minigun-like machine guns
  • A type of fast-firing rocket launcher

I assume we will learn more about this in the coming days. It appears that weapons such as hand cannons occupy the kinetic slot, but I would like to see more information about how these slots will work.


Worlds:

Destiny 2 features four playable worlds: 

  • Earth: The European Dead Zone is now the location of Destiny’s largest playable area, and this is the zone where Humanity flees and attempts to rebuild after the Cabal attack. This camp was founded by Hawthorne, who features in the D2 Preorder, and who once left the City to live in the Wilds.
  • Titan: Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, is covered with a Methane ocean with 40 ft waves, and features a human utopia, a relic of the Golden Age, sinking into ocean. There is no landmass on Titan.
  • Io: A sulfuric moon of Jupiter, Io is the last place the Traveler touched before it appeared on Earth. Io is a sacred place to the Guardians, and to Warlocks in particular. In the trailer, there appear to be the remnants of some kind of civilization.
  • Nessus: A centaur, or type of icy minor planet. The Vex have transformed Nessus into a machine world, and it now features native vegetation, large canyons, and plateaus based on tepui, a type of South American highland plateau.

Quests

Destiny 2 has revamped the map system. Now, players will be able to use an area map to navigate and discover locations and events. These include:

PatrolsAmbient enoucntersCollectable materialsAdventures*Treasure maps*Public events with treasures*Lost sectors*

*denotes a seemingly new feature

Destiny 2 will emphasize the sense of exploration that players experience. For example, players will be able to discover and unlock secret, hidden dungeons, which will contain both loot and bosses. There appear to be many, many secrets to discover.

Furthermore, there will be more interaction with NPC’s, resulting in numerous side-quests and further adventures.


Map:

Destiny 2 features a revamped map system that players will use to uncover and navigate the new areas. Waypoints, such as those corresponding to the activities listed above, will show up on this map. It will also show WHERE and WHEN public events will take place.

In addition, players will no longer have to ‘go to orbit’ to navigate to new locations. The world navigation system will now be usable from anywhere.


Co-operative:

Co-operative play was heavily emphasized by all presenters. Bungie attempted to strike a balance between easy matchmaking and ensuring that all players are comfortable with the strangers they are matched with. The notable new features are:

  • Clans:
    Clans will no receive official, in-game support. These will offer rosters, tools for fireteam building, custom banners, and shared clan experience and progression. Achievements, whether done solo or in a group, will benefit your clan.

  • Guided Games:
    Guided games are a new way for solo players to find a fireteam without joining a clan and while being able to ensure they have a positive experience. Solo players will be able to see a brief summary of clan information, as well as the activity proposed, and will then be able to join the clan for that single activitiy without committing to the clan. 

    Guided games will open up your party to more players, in case one of your fireteam members must drop out of the activity.

Crucible:

The Crucible has been revamped for 4v4 combat across all game modes. There will also be a new attack/defend mode called “Countdown.” I assume we will learn more in the coming days.


PC Gamers:

In partnership with Blizzard, Destiny 2 for PC will be available exclusively through Blizzard’s Battle.Net.

Other Notes:

  • “More cinematics than ever.”
  • There will be a new raid.
  • There will be new strikes. The strike played at the reveal is called “The Inverted Spire.” You will traverse Red Legion territory to a Vex Stronghold, where you will fight a 3-stage boss.
  • There will be more quests and story missions
  • There may (SPECULATION: ENTIRELY UNCONFIRMED) be new vehicles.
  • There will be “More to do than any game we’ve ever made at Bungie.”

Main takeaways

Community, community, community. Destiny 2 was referred to several times by different people as “A world I want to be in, where I can always find people to play with if I want to.” Bungie appears to be focused on making all of D2′s content accessible to more players. This, to me, is a great thing.

Exploration: the words “Open World” were not used, and from the gameplay demo of “Homecoming,” that mission at least appeared quite linear. That’s not to say the rest of the game will be that way, and if the new map system is any indication, we can look forward to a lot more exploration. 

I, personally, cannot wait to see the new worlds. It seems like Bungie has done a lot of work to make each location feel unique.

Gameplay-wise, it sounds as though Bungie has learned from D1, and is looking for ways to make D2 more engrossing and meaningful for all kinds of players. If the new strikes have harder, more involved boss fights, it sounds as though we can expect more than the bullet-sponge boss fights that dominated D1.

The revamped weapons system also sounds great, and I can’t wait to hear more about it. 

I am unsure about the Crucible being reworked for 4v4. Reference was made to it being “For PvP Players,” although what that means remains to be seen.


And, most importantly: Throwing Knives return.

Two antagonists of a game who are associated with the color black, have whooshy hair (horns?) and were supposedly betrayed by someone they trusted, only one is made of ink and the other is made of shadows

hello fire emblem heroes dev team

i know you will never see this bcus 1. im a nobody, and 2. i dont know if you speak english, and yknow, language barriers and stuff

i wanna start this critizism with this, i love your game, i play it everyday and i really like what you are doing with it, i cannot wait to see more of the special events and more units added for more funtimes

that being said, there is something that bothers me about bunny lucina, dont get me wrong i do like her and im dumping endless amount of money going slowly bankrupt to get her, but i cannot shake the feeling that her outfit was an afterthought

Hear me out, i like fanservice as much as the next guy, but i do think that fanservice can be enhanced when given the proper care in terms with the character that you are making some “cheesecake” images with, i think a fanservice image is enhanced and more embraced by a comunity when it also makes sense with the character that you are making this changes to, and with the Lucina outfit, i cannot shake the feeling that its just the camila outfit with sleeves, it doesnt really *highlight* Lucina, its the exact same suit with a blue color, and this bothers me because huge cleavage and big boobs are more like camilas thing, and lucinas outfit feels more like its trying to get that sex appeal when her sex appeal lies in a whole different spectrum

Where Lucina shines is in her slim pretty figure, so i would have suggested that you went with more of a one piece swim suit approach with it, something that really highlights her body shape and as a bonus her regal personality, and as a bonus to her quirky side of having not the greatest fashion sense, you can add some cute details, sometimes showing cleavage is not the best option to make a character look sexy, sometimes a character looks WAY better by showing their assets in the best way possible, anything can be ~sexy~ if worn by the right person to ~make~ it look sexy yknow?

I hope you are having a great day, i know im not the most expert character designer, but i hope you keep in mind this for your future events, instead of making the same outfit twice for 2 males and 2 females, i would love it if you had time to make subtle changes that will enhance said extra outfits with the characters that you are gonna use them for 

With love, Fsnow

(p.d: please for the love of god make the focus characters 5*’s chances 2% higher <3)

I’m fully convinced, now more than ever, that Chase is involved with Helix. And the best part is he probably only had to make one small move to set this play in motion. All he’d really need to do would be to tell Helix who Felicity was, because he’d know Helix would recruit her and he’d know Felicity would say yes. 

Kidnapping Susan instead of Felicity meant that Felicity was free to help Oliver get intel on Susan’s location, which Chase knew would mean digging herself in deeper with Helix, which would mean getting herself in trouble with the law somewhere down the line. He WANTS Felicity to work with Helix, because he WANTS her to break the law and he WANTS her to get caught. By keeping this from Oliver, Felicity’s driving a wedge between them, which means Oliver won’t see it coming. Chase knows how much it will hurt Oliver to see Felicity behind bars and feeling like he’s to blame for it.

So even though Chase knew it would hurt Oliver more if he kidnapped Felicity instead of Susan, he knew that NOT kidnapping Felicity would eventually hurt Oliver even more down the line.

Felicity’s involvement with Helix is one of those “ten steps ahead.” He’s playing the long game with Felicity. To borrow the chess metaphor, he’s going to strike the Queen last, and if Felicity continues to keep this secret from him, he’s going to be completely blindsided by this move. And I cannot WAIT to see this storyline continue to play out.

EDIT: Holy hell I just thought of something else. What if Chase kidnapped Oliver for this same reason? What if Chase kidnapped Oliver because he knew Felicity would move heaven and earth to find him; that she would dig herself in even deeper with Helix in order to save him.

What if kidnapping Oliver has nothing to do with Oliver and everything to do with Felicity?

Logic and Morality being buddies, Prince being an over dramatic drama queen, Anxiety being surprisingly compliant and included I cannot decide what my favorite part of this video is- wait

“Morality!”

“Mother F-”

“-Father! Now you!”

“Brother! I love word association games”

Yup, that actually really got me going

The Signs as Their Breakup Songs

Aires: Gravity - EDEN
“But if you keep second guessing then there’s only gonna be one end

But you can leave if you really want to
And you can run if you feel you have to
And I’ll be fine if you ever ask me
I know its hard, but no one said its easy
Falling’s easy”

Taurus: Santa Monica Dream - Angus and Julia Stone
“I’m singing songs about the future
Wondering where you are
I could call you on the telephone
But do I really want to know?
You’re making love now to the lady down the road
No I don’t, I don’t want to know

I’m somewhere, you’re somewhere
I’m nowhere, you’re nowhere
You’re somewhere, you’re somewhere
I could go there but I don’t

Goodbye to my Santa Monica dream”

Gemini: Ghost - Halsey
“You say that you’re no good for me
Cause I’m always tugging at your sleeve
And I swear I hate you when you leave
But I like it anyway

My ghost
Where’d you go?
I can’t find you in the body sleeping next to me
My ghost
Where’d you go?
What happened to the soul that you used to be?”

Cancer: Two Years Ago - Ellie Goulding
”It’s now just sparks
Now the fireworks are fading
Is it over?
Lost you in the summer two years ago

You, you, you
I’m still thinking ‘bout you, you, you
Two years ago
You, you, you
I’m still thinking 'bout you, you, you
Two years ago

If there’s no storm, why’re we a shipwreck?
Thought our love is insurmountable
He knows my heart is still aching
Never thought it would be caused by you”


Leo: Fix You - Coldplay
“When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you”

Virgo: The Space Between - Dave Matthews Band
“You cannot quit me so quickly
There’s no hope in you for me
No corner you could squeeze me
But I got all the time for you, love

The Space Between
The tears we cry
Is the laughter keeps us coming back for more
The Space Between
The wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep safe from the pain

But will I hold you again?
These fickle, fuddled words confuse me
Like 'Will it rain today?’
Waste the hours with talking, talking
These twisted games we’re playing”

Libra: Oh My Word - Flip Grater
“Oh my word I’ve been waiting
For you to walk on by
Oh my word I’ve been staying
Inside safe and dry

Will you live underground
And crawl out when it’s light
Do you fail to stand up
And stand in when it’s right

Oh my word I’m just saying
Would you aim this high
Oh my word I’m just waiting
For you at my side”

Scorpio: Can’t Forget You - My Darkest Days
“Whoever said this pain, would ever go away
Didn’t know what it meant to, be here without you
Is everything you see, reminding you of me?
Does it hurt when you breathe too?
'Cause it does when I do, cause it does when I do

When anybody says your name I wanna run away,
I keep remembering I can’t forget you
It doesn’t matter when I try it happens anyway,
It’s been forever and I can’t forget you
With every single day, it won’t go away
The way I feel about you
And when it’s said and done, you’re the only one
And I can’t regret you, so I can’t forget you”

Sagittarius: Doomed - Bring Me The Horizon
“You can have my heart

So come rain on my parade
'Cause I wanna feel it
Come shove me over the edge
'Cause my head is in overdrive
I’m sorry, but it’s too late
And it’s not worth saving
So come rain on my parade
I think we’re doomed
I think we’re doomed
And now there is no way back”

Capricorn: Please Don’t Go - Barcelona
”All those arrows you threw, you threw them away
You kept falling in love, then one day
When you fell, you fell towards me
When you crashed in the clouds, you found me

Oh, please don’t go
I want you so
I can’t let go
For I lose control”

Aquarius: Oceans - Seafret
“It feels like there’s oceans
Between me and you once again
We hide our emotions
Under the surface and tryin’ to pretend
But it feels like there’s oceans
Between you and me

I want you
And I always will
I wish I was worth
But I know what you deserve
You know I’d rather drown
Than to go on without you
But you’re pulling me down”

Pisces: Running Up That Hill - Placebo
“You don’t want to hurt me,
But see how deep the bullet lies.
Unaware that I’m tearing you asunder.
There is thunder in our hearts, baby.
So much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don’t we?

You, be running up that hill
You and me, be running up that hill
You and me won’t be unhappy.”

  • me: that's it. i can't watch this show anymore. it's too emotionally draining. i just can't. how could they do that? do they not care about their audience at all? do they not think of all the people that sit and cry after each episode? so rude. i cannot even-
  • also me: *waits all week for the latest episode and constantly annoys everyone to watch it too*
Fic Rec Post #1

I’ve decided to do fic rec posts over hiatus. I’m reading so many fics, and I have about 70 bookmarked, so I thought this would be a good way to help support fan fic writers and give everyone more reading options. I love when other blogs do this, and always mark the fics for later. I read about 99% Malec fics, so that’s what you’ll find here, if otherwise I’ll note it. Look at the ratings and tags on these because I read a lot of Mature fics.Here goes.

The start of a new chapter….  by Tiger_Tiger_Burning_Bright

18,477 words,  1/1 Chapters,  Malec Bookshop AU

My friend @the-burning-tiger is an amazing writer, and you are missing out if you haven’t read any of her fics. You will see many of her awesome fics in my rec posts.

I Waited So Long by pseu_do_nym

13,098 words, 4/4 Chapters, Malec

This is one of my favorites! I’ve read it again and again. Smokin’

In The Sin Bin by otppurefuckingmagic 

246,992 words (yes, really), 18/25 Chapters, Malec Hockey AU

Honestly, if you are in this fandom and you haven’t at least heard of @otppurefuckingmagic‘s ITSB, then I might think you live under a rock. If you haven’t read it, you should. Please don’t be put off by the word count. It is my favorite fic ever and so fucking brilliant, and you should all just read it. (Although I suspect anyone reading this already has, most likely)

Tell Me What You Want, Alexander by Cjblack

46,486 words, 10/10 Chapters, Malec

This fic by @cjblack322 is another one of my favorites. There are Malec dates and Malec sex in many different ways. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever read. I read it again and again. It’s AMAZING and will literally set your body on fire, so there’s that.

I Never Meant to Start a War(but i’m kind of glad I did) by Cjblack

6,624 words, 1/1 Chapters, Malec

Part 2 of Tell Me What You Want, Alexander ^^^ Just as amazing.

Set Me In Motion by lemonoclefox

98,614 words, 15/? Chapters, Malec AU

One of my very favorite writers @lemonoclefox does Chef Alec and Fashion Designer Magnus so well in this fic. I adore it! You will see more from this writer in future fic rec posts for sure.

Something Changed by arandomfan91

24,885 words, 10/10 Chapters, Malec AU but set in SH world

This fic by my lovely friend @malec-on-ice is wonderful. Go watch head of the institute Alec meet Magnus and see if they can get together :) So much fluff and flirty, and what the hell are you doing, just do the thing already.

Possibly I like the Thrill by woodsbane

2,359 words, 1/1 Chapter, Malec

Sex. So much sex. And Magic sex. Done very very very well. Try not to combust.

Bibliophile by dorkberto

1,717 words, 1/1 Chapter, Malec Library AU

Play Me Like a Choir by Intangibel(duskbutterfly)

3,322 words, 2/2 Chapters, Malec

My delightful friend, @intangibel is in my opinion, one of the very best writers in this fandom. SO many amazing fics from her, so you’ll see her name again and again on my fic rec posts. This fic is one where Magnus isn’t good at something for once and Alec takes great pleasure in teaching him, making it awkward for Simon, who lives at Magnus’ place. Features one of my fave things ever, a protective Alec. It’s incredible.

A Wild Game by AlyxHavok

1,419, 1/? Chapters, Malec AU

So, my dear friend, @alyxhavok is an incredible writer, with many fics to choose from. This is a new wip and one of my favorite things. The interesting combo of Magnus as a nervous newbie of a company where Alec is a promiscuous CEO. I cannot wait to see where this one goes.

Summer Lovin’ by MuscleMemory

2,606 words,  1/1 Chapter, Malec AU

Another awesome writer and my lovely friend @sfjessii used a pic taken of Matt in the countryside as inspiration for this fic. So much freaking fluff and love. This writer is one of the very best I have ever read at descriptions. Just. So. Damn. Good. Lots of little drabbles that will make your heart burst with happiness. 

You’ll notice that several of these came from prompts by @ladymatt. She thinks of the best prompts!
