anyway for those migrating from hiveswap to read homestuck, heres a warning i haven’t seen much:
homestuck has alot of pages that require an epilepsy warning. there’s characters who revolve around needing to giving epilepsy warnings at points. a lot of panels and flashes use rapidly flashing lights or gifs.
if you wanna read it, i’d advise to take precaution when:
the next page is an [s] page
if the characters becquerel,
doc scratch, bec noir, or
are mentioned or pictured (edit: i felt like i should clarify the first three are here if only because the first guardian powers involve really bright colors and quickly flashing images)
the next page has an [o] instead of a ==>
for the first few acts theres minor characters that rapidly flash like strobe lights
these are all that come to my head for now, if anyone here can add more it would be great
Mutants and Masterminds: Yes you can do the thing.
GURPS: Fill out these forms in triplicate.
Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition: Yes, but it’s really not worth it unless you are a Dream Elf with the Godblooded feat and at least five levels in the Thingomancer Prestige class from Complete Thing. Or you could just play a Wizard, they get The Thing as a 3rd level spell.
Call of Cthulu: You can do the thing, but you REALLY don’t want to.
FATE: That depends, can you bullshit the GM into believing that one of your vaguely-worded aspects supports you doing The thing?
7th Sea: Only if the thing is properly dramatic!
Shadowrun: Yes, but you’ll need a bathtub full of D6s.
Paranoia: The thing is treason.
Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition:
[I copied the above from this brilliant post, and I reblogged as text because I really felt the need to add the gif for 5e, and chat posts don’t allow gifs, dammit.]
When I started in theater and film, I thought I would be a director. The only reason that I started acting was because I felt like I needed to understand what the actors were doing and their process so that I could better guide them. During the course of that, I caught the acting bug. But once I finished my [acting] training, I still was thinking I would be a writer/director. I don’t really think I focused on acting until I came to L.A. in 2008. That’s when it got serious for me.
I have been in a low-energy state so frequently lately that I feel like I’m accomplishing nothing and contributing nothing to my life or anyone else’s. To try to combat this, I made a list of things I like to do (or don’t hate doing) that can help me get through a day. The less time you waste trying to decide what to do with your time, the better, because that shit is so exhausting.
I felt like I’d share this in case anyone wants some ideas for when you feel totally overwhelmed, exhausted, bored, and frustrated. Here goes!
