i hate how being bioware critical apparently means u dont love the games they put out like … shut up, bioware fucks up constantly, bioware has done things so bad they make me feel sick ranging from the way they write characters to the way they design women to the disgusting things bioware staff have said on social media —
but i love bioware’s games? i love them. nowhere is more home for me than in thedas, sitting around the campfire with zevran and morrigan or running around skyhold and kirkwall. i adore, so much, running around every version of the normandy, getting lost in the citadel, every beat of the romance with garrus, everything about miranda lawson’s character and being scared shitless of collectors
that doesn’t mean i have to sit back and praise them and to be honest i’m getting tired of the fact i feel like i have to quantify “this bioware thing is bad” with “but i love it/this game anyway” like stop being so self absorbed that you can’t see any reason why anyone would criticise this stuff
and yea im talking about criticism, not randomised hate, yet another distinction i can’t believe i have to make because theres always one asshole who comes out saying “[x] isnt criticism tho” like fucker do i look like im talking about that
Anyone who's been around me for at least 5 seconds:

A little early maybe, but hey, it couldn’t be more ‘Chistmassy’ where I am right now, so! Thank you all for the support those past few months, please have a Merry Little ChristMass, (or whichever holiday you happen to celebrate) full of love and joy and a fantastic Happy New Year~! Cheers~ <3
“It’s not a shell. There’s so much life, living here! That’s what I’m doing, I’m living here! I’ve been learning new things about myself all the time! Like how I can make metal do my bidding! The point being, Earth can set you free.”
Requested by anon:
“Is that my shirt” for either Lin or Daveed where you guys are best friends and it gets awkward and cute. Please and thank you
Summary: Lin and the reader were best friends all through their teenage years and college days. Like so, life pulls them in separate directions for a few years, only to have them reunite for a special occasion.
(I GOT SO CARRIED AWAY IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SO MUCH SHORTER but it’s Lin so)
Warnings: none, except fluff
A/N PLEASE READ SO THE STORY MAKES SENSE: The story goes back and forth between the present & past. The present is in italics. LET ME KNOW IF IT GETS CONFUSING. Roughly based off of Ed’s ‘Hearts Don’t Break Around Here’..enjoy :)
“I want to see this whole goddamned city, this city that you purchased with our misery, burned. I want to see you hanged on the very gallows that you use to hang men for crimes far slighter than this. I want to see that noose around your neck and I want to pull that fucking lever with my own two hands!”
I think an artist’s only responsibility is to chase their inspiration and to fall in love. If it happens to make the world a better place, so much the better, but if you’re trying to do that consciously, it feels like homework. We can smell when an artist is doing something out of obligation versus ‘Something in me demands that I write this'… It’s about falling in love and really writing what’s inside you. Sometimes that’s political and sometimes it’s, ‘I’m pissed off and I want to write about how I’m pissed off.’ An artist’s only responsibility is to be true and authentically yourself. …I think that’s our job. I think that’s what people recognize, that’s what people relate to: authenticity.
Riz Ahmed talks about his friendship with Lin-Manuel Miranda on the Tonight Show
Q: “How did you get involved with the Hamilton Mixtape?”
Riz: “I just started stalking [Lin]. I saw Hamilton, and I was like ‘this is so incredible, he’s so talented’, and I just found out his manager’s email and I just sent a long email going like 'you’re so amazing, I love your show, you’re a genius, thank you for creating this’.
I didn’t hear anything for like a month, and I guess Lin’s that guy who just does a deep dive on everything, he just knows so much, he’s got a giant brain. And he just hit me back and was like 'I checked out all of your music, all of your links, all of your stuff. I want you to be in this mixtape’. And…I thought it was a fake email.”
