games books

                King Dice is loaded all right, he’s full of nothin’ but hot air and bullshit! You can tell him I said it! But also don’t hnngggg–

Can we romanticize video games the way we do books?

Like you hear all these things about how you can curl up with a book on a rainy day and drink tea and smother yourself in blankets but anytime you hear things about video games it’s always about how you’re wasting your life away yelling into a headset as you play Call of Duty in a basement?

Imagine bundling yourself up on the couch, the sound of rain hitting the roof, and putting on Fable for a few hours. Or getting home after a long day of work. You make yourself a cup of cocoa, put on fuzzy pjs, and play Viva Piñata for hours not giving a second thought to the outside world. Semester just got out? Throw on some Fallout and just take a night to breathe and enjoy.

You aren’t wasting your life away, you’re enjoying it. Games can be just as much an escape as books, except you get to be part of the story.

lena headey is the most incredible actress

she doesn’t need hair, makeup, or costume to completely change who she is, the person she is

and yes she’s an actress and it’s her job but HOLY HELL she’s god tier (and just…. DOESN’T have an emmy?? like who’s in charge here?)

just look at her in character as cersei:

and then, still in costume but out of character:

a comPLETELY different entity (i honestly think she’s unrecognisable as cersei)


THESE ARE ALL THE SAME WOMAN

it’s the way she moves her mouth?? and her gait?? and just everything holy guacamole

she has just,, been a diFFerent person?? in all of these gifs?? hOW? these are from only like 4 OF HER PIECES OF WORK

tldr; lena headey is an actual chameleon as well as being the most beautiful angel and all around lovely human and deserves all the awards

When reading we don’t fall in love with a character’s appearnce. We fall in love with theie wards, their thoughts, their hearts, their mistakes and their flaws. We fall in love with every aspect of their souls.

STRUGGLES OF SHIPPING A RAREPAIR

Sometimes when you sail too far into the fandom, you’ll encounter what most shippers couldn’t perceive as a normal ship. This painfully breathtaking vessel is called a RARESHIP

1. Other shippers just couldn’t get why you’re digging it

2 Sometimes their reactions are too uncouthy.

3. Even when you have persuaded them to just try reading a great fic or two, their reactions are just like:

4. There’s not enough fangirling material so you’re treating every one you found like precious gem

5. You’ve hit that Kudos button for the gazillionth time already on an AO3 fanfiction featuring your rareship. There are only, like, 5 of them.

6. You asked the author in a tumblr prompt to write another fanfiction featuring your rareship, for every possible kink you could think of

 7. You remember every single interaction of the two characters in the canon material, no matter how minuscule it was 

 8. Digging through Pixiv for fanarts 

 9. You have no other choice but to learn Japanese to understand the doujinshis that no scanslator team could possibly pick up

A couple of partners in time for @heroine-artbook ’s up-coming zine. Do check it out- the talent on this thing is off the hook!

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
