the signs as middle schoolers
  • Aries: that one loud kid who shoves kids into lockers but tells good jokes sometimes
  • Taurus: that girl who's still WAY too into horses
  • Gemini: the kid who probably got teased for being short, talking fast, and telling jokes nobody gets
  • Cancer: the sweet kid who cries a lot and is nice to teachers
  • Leo: the sixth grader that wears too much AXE and hits on high schoolers
  • Virgo: the kid who takes note-taking VERY seriously and is friends with the librarian
  • Libra: the two-faced mean girl that always starts drama
  • Scorpio: the "goth" kid who has just discovered My Chemical Romance and thinks this makes them better than all the "preps"
  • Sagittarius: tells all the innocent kids what a blowjob is
  • Capricorn: the timid, quiet kid nobody pays attention to
  • Aquarius: thinks they are deep and intelligent because they drink their coffee black and wrote a poem about death once
  • Pisces: the kid who reads romance novels too much and wants to find their soul mate in middle school

Shoutout to the aromantics who don’t hate being aro. Shoutout to the aros who were happy, not devastated, when they found out they were aro. Shoutout to aros who felt relief, not sadness and mourning, when they realized they didn’t have to keep forcing crushes and getting into uncomfortable romantic relationships anymore because they finally discovered that romance wasn’t the only option. Shoutout to the aros who like their orientation and wouldn’t change it if they were given the choice, despite even the “accepting” communities assuming that they must be miserable and that they must wish they weren’t aro. Shoutout all the aros who don’t fit the narrative of self-loathing misery and never see themselves represented because no one ever talks about aros who are happy with themselves and like their orientation.

It’s so sad to me that this generations idea of romance is centered around texts. I don’t want you to just text me. I want you be curious about me, I want you to watch me and discover all of my little quirky details. I want you to sit with me in my car in the middle of the night while I yell about the bad day I had. I want to hold hands in the movies. I want little kisses between sentences. I want you to fall for me– but not for my words that appear on your phone screen. I want you to discover me.

Things You Might/Have Missed in DA:I, Also Making First Play Easier
  • Ser Woolsey: Mr. Woolsey is no ordinary ram, he is all knowing and good luck. Attacking him might not be all that good luck, but it does offer a different perspective into the quest. Killing Ser Woolsey will also complete the quest, but the only rewards is what you pick up off his ashes.
  • Reputation and Power Merchant: Once you obtain Skyhold, there will be a set of three merchants near the stables. Two of the merchants on the left sell regular goods, but the merchant on the right sells trade contracts, accords, and other alliances that are basically worth quick gains of Power and Reputation for significant amounts of gold.
  • Easy Way to Find Quarries and Logging Stand: Finding the Quarries and stands aren’t really easy, but under the Secrets tab in your Inquisition Perks there is a perk called Forward Scouts. This perk marks all Quarry locations and Logging locations on each area’s map.
  • Moving through the Fallow Mire: The Fallow Mire is the map where entering the water makes corpses rise from the swamp. There trick to avoiding masses of corpse in a speed run. You can use Tactical view to place a marker for the controlled character to move across the water and on to land, then switch to another, static character. Press the button to run Tactical mode until the character gets their destination, then switch back to that character. Good for those looking to avoid swamp fights, bad for those who don’t want to miss out on experience points and leveling up.
  • In the Elements Side Quest: This is a mission in the Hinterlands that seems impossible to complete, it is not. Where most people get hung up is that one cache seems to be at the top of a mountain and it is actually at the bottom. There are two ways to locate the hardest cache easily. Either follow the very outside of the purple circle, as the cache is on the edge of the circle, not in the middle like in most other, similar quests or walk far left/ southwest after coming out of the nearby Keep, the cache is again on the outside of the purple circle and hidden behind a group of rocks.
  • Codex Merchant: The Power merchant at Skyhold can double as a Codex Merchant, but in Val Royeux there is a merchant who specifically sells codices that you’ve missed or will not receive (due to paths in quests). He can be found sharing a store with a schematics merchant in the South most courtyard up the stairs.
  • Allies and Enemies Storylines: There are two possible enemies you can fight throughout the story plot of Inquisition, one a Mage and one a Templar, who you are facing through the rest of the game depends on who you side with in the Mage and Templar war. Your game can have a pretty different feel when you play one way and then the other. To get the Mage enemy side with the Templars, to get the Templar enemy side with the Mages. I personally love siding with the Mages more (though the Templar quest is really cool), but love the Mage enemy more. So really it is up to you, but I highly recommend trying both.

If you have any other questions or quest problems, I’d love to try and answer them. Preferable on my spoiler, liveblog letusplayinquisition.

i am a lonely captain of this lonely ship but i won’t give up!!!

(My Completed) 2013 Kdramas - You’re The Best Lee Soon Shin 

Another secret of the universe: Sometimes pain was like a storm that came out of nowhere. The clearest summer morning could end in a downpour. Could end in lightning and thunder.
—  Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, Benjamin Alire Sáenz

You are not powerless, you are POWERFUL. On a profound level, we are manifesters and masters of our reality. Realize that the present moment is a result of past thoughts, beliefs, habits, actions and intentions that created the reality present. Therefore, to call forth a new reality, it’s time to think, believe, discover, respond, act and intend in a way that ALIGNS with the reality we want. Want love in your life?
