exquisitely beautiful

The Cost of D&D

To say this game is meant to be accessible to everyone and require no more than dice, pen and paper, to do it properly is incredibly expensive!
I’m gonna be honest and not pretend that I haven’t been using a dodgy copy of the Players handbook, DM guide, etc for years, but today I decided to invest and actually buy the genuine articles (finally, a semi local shop that sells such things!)

The three core books (players, DM, monsters) set me back £120!!! That’s like $155! I was also planning on buying some official WotC miniatures but they were crazily expensive! No chance.

They are books of exquisite beauty but still… Ouch my wallet.

Sometimes being autistic is really hard.

Sometimes it hurts so much to not be able to socialize like other people. To watch yourself fail again and again.

Sometimes it really sucks to miss social cues and not get jokes and not be able to relate to other people.

Sometimes the world is too loud and too bright and too much and everything sucks.

Sometimes it might seem like being autistic is a curse

It’s ok to feel this way sometimes. It’s ok to let yourself feel the pain of feeling like an outsider all the time. It’s ok to feel the hurt of not being able to relate. It’s ok to feel the struggle of living in a world that is too much.

But it’s important to pick yourself back up and remember that being autistic isn’t a curse or a bad thing. While there are aspects of being autistic that can be really tough in this ableist society we live in, there are so many beautiful aspects of being autistic. 

Autism allows us to think in different ways from neurotypicals. We’re able to find solutions and ideas that others wouldn’t. 

Autism allows us to experience the beauty of the world so much more intensely. We can find the exquisite beauty in such small things others would miss.

Autism makes us different and that’s a good thing. We may not always fit in with people, but when we find the right people we can be fierce and loyal and great friends.

Autism gives us a different way of communicating that is just as valid as neurotypical communication. Whether you are speak with your mouth, type out your thoughts, sign your words, or any other way of communicating, it is beautiful and good. People who won’t listen to your communication are the problem not your communication. 

Autism has good aspects and bad aspects just like every other neurotype. 

It’s ok to feel bad about being autistic sometimes, but it’s important to remember all the good that comes with it as well. 

You are unique. You are beautiful. You are valid. You are loved. 

Live proudly

Live radically

Live autisticly

“It was a little chilling, to be honest. I looked so different from myself. Obviously, I’m not going to play this Elvenking like me. No one wants to see that. But, yeah, it was very interesting. The way the character is designed — he’s beautiful, he’s exquisite. There’s something very ethereal about him. But also unforgiving and cold. We figured that out with the way he looks before I even shot a scene. We would do the costume fittings and I would be like, ‘Yeah, he takes up a lot of space this guy. He belongs on a throne.” - Lee Pace

The signs as Edgar Allan Poe quotes

Aries: “I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.”

Taurus: “We loved each other with a love that was more than a love.”

Gemini: “Years of love have been forgot, In the hatred of a minute.”

Cancer: “I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.” 

Leo: “Love like mine can never be gotten over.”

Virgo: “It is with literature as with law or empire — an established name is an estate in tenure, or a throne in possession.”

Libra: “Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.”

Scorpio: “Believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear.” 

Sagittarius: “I do not suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it." 

Capricorn: "I remained too much inside my head, and ended up losing my mind.”

Aquarius: “There is no exquisite beauty… without some strangeness in the proportion.”

Pisces: “Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”

Hot dang…

An incredible orchestrated medley of Undertale songs that resurrected this blog from the dead.  Exquisite arrangement with beautiful playing.  Toby Fox himself tweeted about it on Twitter.  

0:04 - Determination (speech intro)
1:07 - Spear of Justice
2:47 - sans.
3:32 - Papyrus (Bonetrousle)
4:32 - Bergentrückung / Asgore
5:45 - Toriel (Heartache)
6:39 - Asgore (reprise)

I have no words to say except that I love pretty much everything about this, and I highly recommend you give this a try if you like good things.  It’s a little on the longer side.  It is well worth the length.

Also the second half of the song is quite possibly my favorite Undertale performance of all time.  It’s at least top five.

  • Keenan and Laia: *Kiss*
  • Me: Eh
  • Elias and Laia: *breathe at the same time*
  • Me: Beautiful! Exquisite! Dazzling! Magnificent! A work of art! Stunning! Superb! Marvelous!
