my thoughts while the end scene played

RPG Maker Fever Undead and Deranged

Warning:This article may contain spoilers and the content inappropriate for children…or may not contain.But get the children away from the screen just in case.

Good morning! Or is it already evening? Meh, as if it matters…cellar, where I’m chained and writing my articles  is pitch-dark 24 hours per day. So, today we’ll learn how to make friends, control the undead and have a happy dream ( with some experimental drugs involved).Now then, shall we get started?

1. 1bitHeart

Alright, here goes our first title, made by the author of Alice Mare and LiEat series. 1bitHeart is an adventure game, where your goal is to make as many friends as possible . Game plays similar to Ace Attorney series, but with some QTE-scenes, while setting and atmosphere is kinda similar to TWEWY.You can make 49 friends in total, all of them have unique appearance and personality. Plot of the game is pretty good, dialogues are well-written and sometimes hilarious. Besides, every dialogue has it’s own mood supported by stylish well-chosen music track and quality voice acting. Additionaly I want to praise 1bitHeart’s presentation, since  both artwork and sprites are extremely beautiful .

2. The Boogie Man

And here comes the Boogeyman, the Boogeyman comes for me. Here comes the Boogyeman, he’s gonna take me in my sleep…Nah, actually not. Here comes the latest installement in our favourite  the Strange Men Series. This time with the fully voiced in-game cutscenes (and skippable as bonus). The Boogie Man stays true to series and plays like classical horror-adventure with action cut-ins. At some point of the game you can even play as our old friends -David and Sophie, but new protagonist Keith is quite notable too (he’s my personal fav to be honest).Overall the game makes very good impression, the story is interesting and dialogues are bright and entertaining (with many references to previous games).


I’m not the sensitive type, but  even I was kinda hesitant to play this game at first, since it has waaay too many suggestive content, supported by quite a lot of graphic violence.But after beating it I can state that this game is totally drugtastic. END ROLL plays like quality role-playing game and somewhat reminds the wild mix of the Gray Garden and Re:Kinder, but with better story-writing and gameplay I believe. Game has plenty of  unique dungeons (all of them has some plot-related meaning behind it) as well as tons of optional content, which along with well-designed and interesting characters make END ROLL very enjoyable.

4. Guuzen ~ Ningyou no ito

What? Don’t tell me you’ve never heard about the rite named “doll’s prayer” .You’ll forget all of your worries and  path to the Heaven will open before you. But the place, our heroines’ve found themselves in, can be hardly called Heaven. I wasn’t expecting much from this game, but it turned to be quality horror with beautiful character designs, memorable soundtrack, logical puzzles and surprisingly mature story. The game reminds us that we’re often starting to value something only when it’s already lost.Sadly, right now  Ningyou no ito is only available in chinese, japanese and russian.

5. Liar Jeannie in Crucifix Kingdom

Yet another full-fledged role-playing game has made it to my list.And kinda tough, I must say. Imagine what if Dark Souls was the turn-based RPG with cute nun as protagonist and you’ll get Liar Jeannie… more or less.Unlike many RPGs, this one doesn’t  have any levels, and your stats and basic skills fully depend on your current equipment (by the way, every item in this game can be equipped). A special mention is deserved for game’s bosses - there’s a few main bosses and a lot of optional ones -all of them have their own battle tactics and require some thinking before acting ( especially Pleiades Knights-you want to defeat them, trust me).Also, if things during the fight will become real ugly, you can always summon expendable monsters as your allies (or living shields,heh).

6. At the Tale End

Here we have a game, which looks like a regular fantasy-adventure, but only at first. Plot includes our standard party of heroes (fighter,mage,priest and thief), cursed princess and battle with the local dark lord.But each of these elements plays very different from your typical fantasy stories.At the Tale’s End is definetely a unique experience, a role-playing game in it’s original meaning, without countless random battles, but with a certain weight of responsibility for your actions within a narrative.Also this game has detailed and interesting world as well as quality animated cut-scenes.

7. Pocket Mirror

A long-awaited Pocket Mirror has been finally released this year. And I’m amazed with  enormous amount of work made by the  team of developers.When it comes to game’s graphic, Pocket Mirror is stunning. Beautiful artwork and memorable soundtrack help to create this mysterious, unique atmosphere of dark fairy tale. And with that Pocket Mirror has some gameplay issues. You see, while some puzzles are interesting, most of them is quite uninspiring, some of the locations are pitch-dark and hard to navigate.And with that plot of the game is quite complicated,but doesn’t make much sense,if you don’t pay close attention to numerous in-game notes and letters.This game is definetely not bad,but still leaves some feeling of unpolishness.

8. The Maid of Fairewell Heights

Despite the fact that story of the Maid takes place at the haunted apartment complex, this game has no horror elements. Maid feels more like comedy anime straight from ‘90s. Gameplay (along with main character’s outfits) varies depending on the room your’re currently exploring. Starting with regular cleaning you can end up playing detective or running the shop. Game has bright illustrations, good humour and overall is pretty good.

9. Libretta

I’m sure everyone knows that beside translating games vgperson also makes their own, and Libretta is one of them..This game  definetely gives an interesting experience. While playing similar to Ib, Libretta has it’s own unique atmosphere and somewhat complicated plot, where everyone can find something for themselves (or so I think). Libretta has memorable soundtrack and interesting puzzles, requiring some thinking from the player Also playing shirigories between chapters is kinda fun.

10. Imaginary Friends

Imaginary Friends is a classical rpg-horror-game with quality visuals, well-thought puzzles and some minor chasing scenes. While story lacks originality, it’s still interesting to follow, since charactrers are nice and game has several endings. Game is about 3 hours long and leaves mostly positive impression. So, if you like old-school rpg-horrors-be my guest.

11. Red Trees

While having some minor horror elements, Red Trees stays warm and relaxing adventure game with humorous and ironic view on horror genre and quite unexpected ending in a way. Graphic style of the game and whole atmosphere of a local town is somewhat reminiscent of Mother series.Gameplay is quite simple and consist from few “find-and-bring-to-the- right-person” puzzles, which can be easily solved in 30 minutes or so.

12. The Stairway

Like Red Trees this game is also recommended for players, who’ve already tired from jumpscares, explinct content and overthinking bizarre puzzles. This game has simple yet nice story, unique visuals and some easy logical puzzles.So, if you want to neatly spend 30-40 minutes of your time, try and climb The Stairway to see what’s awiting you at the very end.

13. Friendship

The most fitting description for Friendship would be “horror for the beginners”, since it can surprise or startle you only if you haven’t played any other rpg-horrors before. In fact Friendship doesn’t stand out much compared with better quality school horrors ( like Misao or Amayado Bus Stop ).But it doesn’t mean that the game is bad-Friendship is a good way to spend 30 minutes seeing how strong attachment to a friend can turn simple game into yandere-horror.  

14. By Ourselves

 And here comes our closing title about two former classmates, who’ve found themeselves trapped in the room. Game is only 10 minutes long and basically is one big locked door puzzle. You find the first hint and then successively exploring the room for the way out. Game has two endings determined by how much attention you’re paying to your comrade in distress.

It was one of those nights that whole cast was together having sleepover. This time it was at mine place that I shared with Marie. Nights like these always consisted of watching movies and eating anything we had in the fridge or food someone had brought. Everyone had found a comfortable place all around the living room with me managing to get the most comfortable one as always. I was lying on the couch snuggled to Bob who had his arm around me as I rested my head on his chest.

Things About Tuacahn’s “Newsies”

So @neverfearbrooklynshere, @hayleyharmony16, and I went to Tuacahn’s production of Newsies in Ivins, Utah last night. I’ve seen people post about some other regional productions of Newsies but I haven’t seen anything about this one, so here are some things about the show that I noticed from last night (Warning: this is going to be super long but there was so much that I wanted to comment about so sorry):

·      They had the newsies run out in the audience before the show started and sold copies of newspapers out to people for loose change (we tried very hard to get one but were unfortunately unsuccessful). In “Once and For All” the newsies go into the audience as well and sing while hoisting up their papers and it was very powerful.

·      The Jack in this production liked to climb up and down the poles of the set like a spider monkey and I wish that I could even come close to that kind of upper body strength). Jack was dressed more like the Christian Bale Jack, complete with a bandanna tied around his neck, and he didn’t wear a newsie cap (which meant no dramatic removal of the cap during Santa Fe L). However, one thing that I did like a lot was that after meeting Jack, Les pickpockets a handkerchief from someone at the theatre and ties it around his neck to emulate his newsie hero. Spot Conlon was given an eye patch for some reason (Pirate!Spot, anyone?).  Wiesel had a ponytail in this show and it was almost life changing. Katherine and Pulitzer both wore red in this show as a subtle nod to the fact that their characters were related. Jack actually gets smacked by a bowery beauty (named Pearl) in this show and I’m not sure how I feel about that but I guess it does play into the whole “Girls are nice once or twice/ ‘Til I find someone new” line.

·      They introduced a lot of new props to the show, including actual freaking torches and pails in which they burned newspapers in “The World Will Know.” They also sprayed newsies with hoses during the fight scene after “Seize the Day” (which was a very modern touch, considering the water cannons that are sometimes used on strikers today). And, most impressively, they had a cop riding around on a horse! A real horse!

·      Speaking of “Seize the Day,” Jack intimidates some of the scabs into joining the strike by dancing at them, and I couldn’t help but laugh because it was just like Guardians of the Galaxy where Starlord challenges Ronan to a dance-off for dominance. Also, they had girl newsies come on stage and Les, after dancing at them, convinces them to join the strike and walks away with his arms around two of them (what a player).  There was a cool move where they threw paper stacks with their feet and they had a lot of moving set parts and they walked through the moving gate for “The World” to indicate movement. In the fight scene afterward, Pulitzer watches the whole thing unfold sternly from his office, which nearly gave me chills because he was literally watching all these children get beat up?!?! Jack is being beat up by Snyder and Crutchie goes “Don’t touch him!” and tries to get Snyder off of Jack but he ends up getting dragged off to the Refuge for his bravery and I cried.

·      “Letter from the Refuge” featured Jack onstage as well as Crutchie, and Crutchie walked over to Jack, handed the letter to him, and read the letter out loud over his shoulder while Jack reacted to what he read and Dear God it was so sad. (The actor playing Crutchie didn’t limp during this scene, which I thought was an accident on his part, but my sister said that maybe this was due to the fact that it was Jack imagining what Crutchie was doing in his head so the rules don’t apply to that situation.)

·      The idea of the west and Santa Fe was a huge theme in this production, because Tuacahn is literally in an incredible red rock canyon. During the climax of Santa Fe, they lit up the mountains behind Jack so that it glowed red in the dark. “Something to Believe In” used this to its advantage as well, as they projected a circle of light onto the red rock so that it looked like the moon. This was a great lighting choice because it matches the “Moon so big and yellow” line from “Santa Fe,” which shows that Santa Fe for Jack is transformed from just an imaginary place of tranquility in his mind to a real-life place when he finds belonging with Katherine and the newsies (Awwww).

·      There were no actual tap shoes in “King of New York” but they did tap-like dance moves. Instead of using spoons during the dance break they pounded out rhythms with cups and plates. Jacobi joins in and they have crowns made of metal and paper that they wore and put on Jacobi’s head along with a cape. One guy did this cool trick where he threw up a plate and made it land in a completely vertical position on another plate. They also gave Davey his own little dance solo and he wore a cooking pot on his head and it was precious.

·      In “Brooklyn’s Here,” the kid from the Bronx pops up from the top of the  giant Brooklyn Bridge model in the background to say “So’s the Bronx!” and I was torn between two thoughts: “How in the heck did he get up there?” and “I aspire to be this extra.” There was a lot of aggressive clapping in this show, which is a tactic that I should definitely use to scare people away on the street, right?

·      Jack steals a pencil from Pulitzer’s office and Pulitzer takes it out of his pocket during the reprise of “The Bottom Line.” Teddy Roosevelt joins in on the thievery later, as he stole a pencil from Pulitzer before leaving his office (what a boss). After the line “He doesn’t do happiness, does he?” Jack verbally said no and everyone onstage just shook their heads in agreement.

·      During the kiss just before the finale, Davey frantically covers Les’ eyes and Les says “That’s disgusting” in a lovely homage to his brother. They shot off fireworks in the last bit of the finale, which I wasn’t expecting and was blown away by.

·      In conclusion, it was really great. The set was gorgeous, there were some lovely singers and dancers, and you should all go see it if you get the chance.

Movie night - Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog (smut)

“OH MY GOD, STOP!” I complain, kicking Gabriel so he stops tickling me. “It’s the last time I ever invite you two over.”

Nathan laughs from the other couch and I show him my middle finger, making him laugh even harder. Gabriel Landeskog and Nathan MacKinnon are my neighbors, they are also professional hockey players, but they are my really annoying neighbors.

“You love to have us around.” Nate says and I roll my eyes, grabbing another handful of popcorn from the bowl that is resting on Gabe’ stomach.

We are having our weekly pizza and movie night, when they come over to my apartment and we watch bad movies and eat pizza. Today it’s Nate’s night, so he gets to choose a movie and we are waiting for the pizzas to arrive before starting the movie.

“‘On the road’?” I read the title of the movie on my TV screen. “What is it about?”

“I have no idea.” He answers and both Gabe and I roll our eyes. Nate always chooses the worst movies on Netflix.

“You are so losing your next turn if this movie sucks.” Gabe warns him; stretching his long body on the couch we are sharing and putting his feet on my lap.

It’s always the same, Gabe and I share my big couch while Nate lays on my smaller loveseat. It has been proven that the guys cannot share a couch and Nate is just really whiny when he cannot stretch. I don’t mind sitting with Gabriel though, he loves to cuddle throughout movies and he is quite comfy to lie on.

The doorbell goes off and Nate gets on his feet to collect the pizzas and pay. If you have the right to choose you also have the obligation to pay.

“Big pepperoni for me, big Hawaiian for Gabe, small and sad just cheese for (y/n).” Nate hands us our pizza boxes and we thank him. “Let’s watch the movie.”

The movie is starts slow while we chew on our pizza. I lay back when I’m done eating, leaving a couple slices of my pizza on the box, knowing that the guys will eat it later. The movie is quite confusing, with a lot of characters and a lot of issues. When Gabe is done eating he turns on the couch and lays between my legs, his head on my stomach and his left hand rubbing circles on the bare skin of my calves. The movie is quite explicit, talking openly about sexuality issues and desires; we get through the first sex scenes without thinking much of it, but the air turns quite dense when a threesome scene comes up on the screen. I take a sharp breath when Gabe’s hand travels from my calf to my thigh, caressing it softly and making me shiver. My friends have always said that the sexual tension between the guys and me was quite evident, but I had never thought much of it until now that my body is reacting like that to a simple caress. I bury my fingers in his thick blond hair, massaging his scalp and earning a content sigh from his lips. I keep playing with his locks when I feel Nate presence besides me.

“Space?” He asks and Gabe and I scoot over to the other side of the couch, so Nate can sit where I was sitting. I lean on him and he wraps his arm around my shoulders, kissing my temple.

“You good?” I ask, worried that I’m crushing him or that he is uncomfortable.

“Yeah babe, I’m good.” He whispers.

“She was free in her wildness. She was a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belonged to no man and to no city.” - Roman Payne, The Wanderess

I was set out on a mission. I needed a muse. Something to get me over this god-forsaken rut. The rut that has been halting my mind, giving me nothing but absolutely zero motivation. It has been weeks and I still had not finished my big end of the term art project. I started it successfully, yet halfway through it I had nothing else to offer. Weeks later, and still nothing. It’s due in two weeks and I needed to find a new muse to kick me out of this hole of dreariness. So when my best friend texted me, asking to check out a new bar that opened up in downtown, I figured ‘why the hell not? Maybe inspiration will find me there’.

So, I really wasn’t up for the bar scene tonight, but I was up for doing anything to get me out of this endless cycle of nothingness. And if that meant showing up to a bar in the middle of downtown, then there I will be. I arrived to the bar, and it definitely looked new… vintage… minimal… all characteristics you’d expect from a scene in this part of the city. I walked inside and made my way to sit up at the bar, not at all surprised that _Y/F/N_ wasn’t here yet. She always had a knack for being fashionably late. Sitting at the far end of the bar, I took notice of how vivacious and lively this bartender was while making someone’s drink. You would have thought you were in the audience of a cirque du soleil showcase with all the twists and turns of his arms, bottles and glasses. But despite the overly done gestures, you couldn’t help but smile at his enthusiasm.

“What’ll you have, Miss?” The bartender asks, looking at me with his crystallized hazel eyes after he’s settled the bottles and glasses down.

“Gin and Tonic, please. On the rocks.” He nods, and gets to work on my drink. I checked my phone for a message from my friend. Nothing new… yeah, she’s definitely still getting ready, I thought to myself. I turned around in my chair to observe the scene behind me. The dim lighting made everyone look overly happy, yet serene. They looked almost  like shadows floating to the sound of the music playing in the background. A few high tables and couches were spread out along the walls of the building, leaving a small dance area towards the opposite end of the room, while a single pool table occupied the space just before the bartop.

I scanned my way back around, slowly observing every inch of the room. The details were breathtakingly simple but all too beautiful. My eyes reached the opposite side of the bar, from where I’m sitting and I see it. In all black, topped with deep blue denim.

My muse.

Some random musings about the bonus “Farewell” episode of LiS: Before the Storm

First things first, holy shitballs it is great to see Arcadia Bay again, not to mention Chloe and Rachel!

So I was thinking about the announcement of the special “Farewell” episode of LiS that will be coming out with the special editions of Before the Storm, and the fact that (even though to my knowledge it’s only been confirmed to “take place 5 years before the events of LiS season 1”) it will likely involve the scene where Max and Chloe part ways before Max first leaves for Seattle.

While I realize it is quite unlikely due to the desire to avoid canonizing a given ending, I think that (if written in a fitting / non jarring fashion) it would be very interesting so see this sequence play out from the perspective of post Bay/Bae Max, in addition to 13 year old Max.

Because of Maxes time travel via photo ability, and my assumption that they will have a “stop making me cry devs” last photo moment, I sort of thought it would be interesting to see a post Bay Max return to basically tell Chloe to be strong, that even when she was away she’d always care, that she’s not alone, etc. The issue with that is that it would canonize the Bay ending, and similarly an alternate where Max comes back after saving Chloe would either seem out of place for achieving nothing, or would be sort of wish fulfill-ee and invalidate the impact of the Storm by being a way to magically fix the issues later on.

Still just think it would make for an interesting notion, and a way for us to get a prequel AND a Max sequel all in one, which is something not a lot of games / stories have the ability to do.

Cursed Child 23/04 thoughts !!!

This show is my third time seeing cursed child, second time in dress circle, second time premium tickets. Paid a ridiculous amount of money for the tickets (they were the £250 ones,,, I cried when the money left my bank account) buttttt the seats were amazing. Row C, aisle seats !!! amazing. Incredible. Best seats I’ve had so far.
Little run down of moments that made me smile:

Everything. He is a gem, a rare gem. This is the second time I’ve seen anto as Scorpius and (my first one was in August last year) he has changed COMPLETELY. He is so much more gentle and emotional, his voice is still squeaky and charismatic but he’s outgoing in a less obvious way. His movements and voice mean that whenever there is an exciting, funny moment- the audience appreciate it so much more. Everyone loved him today. He was so adorable ??? He kept wiping his nose, sniffing (I thought anto was sick but I’m pretty sure he was fine at stage door), fiddling with his hair. The library scene and staircase ballet ended me. I’m pretty sure he actually cried at the staircases. Therefore I cried. He was so sweet during the owlery scene. He and Sam kept bumping into each other during the show and in the owlery scene as Scorpius says “and wake up everyone at hog warts?” he just echoed “hogwarts warts warts warts” and everyone died. The whole yelling “help” moment was sweet as well. He ran across the stage and everyone lost it. He and Sam were also very sweet during a lot of the play. On the train anto knelt down and held onto sams leg, cute. In the church scene they side hugged and patted each other on their backs. Also as Albus reassured Harry he was fine, anto was sat on the floor and he shuffled over to gently squeeze Sam’s arm. Eeeeep! Special mention to the last scene- the two of them were soooo close, there was a nose boop, several pokes and it was adorable. He also repeatedly overexaggerated certain lines like “you can stand with me” as Albus got sorted into slytherin. I love anto, I can’t wait to see him in something new but I will miss him as my baby Scorpius.

Oh Sam. Sam is so under appreciated, today was a Sam day for me. I spent so much time just admiring Sam. He’s exceptional. His angst and emotion, facial expressions and movements destroy me. Even in the first few scenes as he sits on the trunk watching everyone stare he had me broken. His facial expressions…. gahhhhh!!!!! I told him several times today how exceptional he is and he’s responded to all of them so I’m glad he’s getting the love he deserves :’) he looked so sad during the ballet, as usual. And he and Jamie were on fire today during the arguments. Right up in each other’s faces, yelling and so overcome with emotion. He’s the kind of actor who doesn’t just learn what he has to do- he learns the lines but the lines become part of who his character is and it all feels so natural. He’s so talented. His interaction with poppy always makes me cry and his chemistry with anto,,, there would be no scorbus without Sam and it seems that people forget that sometimes. He is so talented and deserves love and acknowledgement of that. He was so incredible during the Delphi/Scorpius/Albus scenes. His face and voice when Scorpius was crucioed god I cried so hard. Sam always brings something new and fresh and I feel so honoured to have seen his Albus three times. He made Albus for me, he is Albus and I honestly appreciate his characterisation so much. Sam clemmett is an exceptionally talented actor and I will be front at the queue to purchase tickets to whatever he does next.

James Howard:
Have only ever seen Alex’s draco so this was a wonderful surprise to see James. And boyyyy he loved up to my expectation. Alex has a more humorous side, his lines have a hint of laughter and he makes draco funny while also sensitive. But James,,,,, god James took it to a different place. He took draco somewhere darker, someone trapped inside his own emotions. I felt the intensity whenever he was on stage. During the duel with harry, he sounded almost sinister on the “I want to hurt you” likes. It was immense. The office scene in part two with Scorpius,,, the way he speaks the line about Scorpius. I was so emotional during his delivery of the speech about Astoria. He built up all these sinister walls around draco and tore them all down in the really emotional moments. I am so glad he is taking over as draco because he is AMAZING. During the church scene he comforted Scorpius at the door, kept rubbing his shoulder asking if he was okay. I felt the malfoy love and he played dad!draco so well. During the next scene watching Lily and James die,,, he pulled anto into his side, comforted him with love while battling his own emotions. Breathtaking. Truly breathtaking. I’m honoured to have seen him perform.

As usual the rest of the cast were incredible. Noma always impresses, Paul was as funny as always. The polyjuice scene always brightens my day. Jamie was incredible. He was more emotional than I’ve ever seen him before. During fights and yelling and after the dreams he was so deep into Harry I had shivers down my spine. I also want to celebrate poppy because she is also lovely. I love her Ginny. She makes her the doting mother while retaining the independence and strength Ginny has had all her life. I also just want to appreciate her run- when she runs on and off stage it makes me happy. She has an adorable run. I wanted to tell her at stage door but it seemed like such a random thing to say to someone lmao.

The audience took a while to get into it today. There weren’t many laughs until the second interval of part 1. Which was a shame because the polyjuice potion scene didn’t get as much appreciation as it deserved. A lot of the funny lines also got overlooked (imo) but lord knows hannah was there laughing herself to tears at everything. By the end everyone was enthralled. Standing ovation, cheers and tears and happiness all around. The rightful response. This cast are immense. I love them. I love this play.

i’m still thinking about lesbian jane austen… i’ve always loved the way she portrays women and marriage in her works and until now i’ve mostly looked at it from a feminist viewpoint, and though i’ve had my “austen wasn’t straight” theory for a while this is the first time it was actually validated

and uh. it literally makes so much sense. elizabeth and emma especially represent compulsory heterosexuality to me and austen’s thoughts could so easily be the thoughts of a closeted lesbian… emma, who loves playing matchmaker for everyone else but doesn’t really show interest in men herself, marries her considerably older childhood friend and they end up living at her father’s house so she doesn’t have to leave him. lmao. also, austen’s generally low opinion of men and her refusal to give them any scenes of their own (there’s a woman in every single one of her scenes) is hilarious and definitely a wlw experience

A friend shared this with me, but I don’t know where this originally was posted at (if you can let me know, I will gladly provide the source’s original link). 

We can see here why the bouncing ball is so important to understand, just by seeing this. Also, a lot of the 12 Principles of Animation is at play here. Mainly Slow In and Slow Out, along with Follow Through and Overlapping Action. The hands have Stretch to it, and all the motions are being done on Arcs. 

The ears are doing some Overlapping Action, while also being part of the Secondary Action. Same with the fins on Mushu’s back. Follow Through is important too, as we see that the head is still coming while everything else is reaching their end. 

Fun scene analysis huh? Again, not my original image, but the analysis text wise, my thoughts. What do you guys think of this scene? Notice the 12 Principles as well? 


Update: Found out that Tim Rudder did a couple of these. Great work Tim, thank you for sharing! 


Now, with the release of this second game, a bit more has been introduced but not a lot has been explained. To my knowledge, the use of newspaper clippings in the first game has been replaced now with the minigames caused by in-game deaths.

I would like to give you my thoughts.

Morikubo Shoutarou; Over the Years
Excerpts from CHAIN REACTION Character Talk

Mini 4 Fighter (Bakusou Kyoudai Let’s & Go!!) 1996

It goes without saying that this was my debut role. [I had so many lines that] later the sound director who hired me said, “If I knew it was a role that spoke this much, I wouldn’t have let you do it” (laughs). But I was trained a lot because of this work, and without a doubt it was the role that became my foundation stone.

Musica (RAVE) 2000

I hadn’t voiced a manly character in a while besides Orphen [Majutsushi Orphen, 1998], and Musica is even more straightforward and cool. Because he’s a type of character I didn’t play much, and because I’m a fan of the original work, I was really happy to voice him.

Kirihara Akaya (Prince of Tennis) 2001

Kirihara came out earlier in the series than his other teammates, in one scene only [T/N: the scene where he fell asleep in the bus, missed his stop, and ended up in Seigaku]. To tell you the truth, I thought my work was done there (laughs). Didn’t think I’d continue doing him for this long. I have a lot of things in common with Kirihara. He’s friendly with his seniors, cheeky toward them, and because I’m also friendly with other seiyuus in the series, it’s easy to say those cheeky lines… (laughs)

Amano Ginji (Get Backers) 2002

Ban’s Nobutoshi Canna-san played the main character in my earlier series Roads Tousenki, and at that time he’d been really scary (laughs). That’s why at first I was like, “I don’t want to” (laughs), but afterward we became a combi, we did radio together, we went to a lot of interviews together, and I was being spoiled by him. Later on I confessed, “You were so scary that I disliked you” (laughs). But we’ve been great friends ever since.

Nara Shikamaru (Naruto) 2002

Actually I went to the audition aiming to be Naruto. But then I was given the wrong script from on top of the pile. When told to do Shikamaru, I was like, “Who’s that!?” while panicking and trying to do the character on spot, I don’t remember how I did it (laughs). Though something like that happened, Shikamaru has now become a character that I really love.
One time, I was told to do a narration for a Naruto game commercial. The thing was, I had to do it as Shikamaru. I said, “(with a lazy voice) XX game is now on sale,” and at that time I felt really terrible (laughs).

Narugami (Matantei Loki RAGNAROK) 2003

Narugami was really easy to do, and he was the first character where I did a synchro to–when voicing him, I really acted [moved/changed facial expressions] just as he did. There was a scene where Narugami crashed so hard while seizing his sword, that time I was in synchro and I really felt as much pain as the drawing.

Shigeno Goro (MAJOR) 2005

When taking the audition for this series, I was aiming for Goro, while Morita (Masakazu) was going for Toshiya. But at the audition, I was told to do Toshiya and Morita did Goro, it was a strange audition. When my office called and said, “You got a role in MAJOR! As Shigeno Goro!” I went, “That can’t be right, go confirm it again! I didn’t do him at the audition!” (laughs)

Kadaj (Final Fantasy VII Advent Children) 2005

Kadaj is a difficult character–his movements, facial expressions, and what he’s really thinking are all over the place. There were 4 lines that the director made me redo for hours. He didn’t OK me no matter how many times I tried, and just when I thought, “I can’t do it,” finally he gave me an OK. It was a valuable experience.

Okita Souji (Hakuouki) 2010

Hakuouki’s script was easy to understand, it could make you cry, and not to mention it was interesting! When reading the dying scene, I was all in tears…
I thought of Okita as, “Aah, this person is aloof and speaks with harsh words, but inside he has a mature side and another side that’s full of spirit, yet he doesn’t show them,” and the character came naturally to me. I know a lot of people who have acted as Okita, and for myself, he’s a character that’s different from others that I’ve ever played.

Hanamura Yosuke (Persona 4) 2011

Recording for this series has always been fun, the cast list is full of weird people like (Yamaguchi) Kappei-senpai (laughs), it’s always loud in the studio, we’re all good friends with each other.
Not to mention, in the series, there are a lot of scenes that make you think, “This is really good!” and can make you cry. Hanamura Yosuke whom I play is a good character too, if it’s him I feel like I can act even when asleep (laughs). He is the role that I don’t need to act the most. Maybe I’m just like him… Namikawa (Daisuke)-kun who plays Narukami Yuu also says the same.

Kotobuki Reiji (Uta no Prince-sama) 2012

Kotobuki Reiji is a senior idol who’s gone through his peak. Although he’s an idol, he smells like Showa [older Japanese period] (laughs). He’s a character who’s easy to do and I synchro a lot with him. Reiji looks like just another playful character, but there are scenes where he’s really serious about his work. He’s really stupid, he’s really earnest. Even for someone stupid like him, there are things that he’s considerate with. Playing a mature side of him like that is unexpectedly fun.

Yuri!!! On Ice will most likely have Russia’s anti-gay laws as a source of conflict

Okay, normally, I’m not one to make fan theories because 1) I don’t have the time, and 2) I like to use any show as a way to numb my existence, but Yuri!!! On Ice is so full of it that I couldn’t ignore it! Prepare for a very long theory that will make me sound like Marvin Boggs from the RED movie series.

Blue Foundation- Stuck in a Hard Place [x]


So, like, I happened on this scene while looking for a quote for my Haruka mix- Haruka’s speech at the end of this conversation is one of my favorite little speeches in Sailor Moon, it’s super meaningful and I think it’s meant to affirm queer kids.  So I sort of want to dissect it a bit.

 I’d always interpreted this as Minako being REALLY FUCKING OBLIVIOUS about Haruka’s orientation even thought that’s not super in-character for her (she’s the goddess of love and clearly READS A LOT about…all… aspects of relationships, I really think she’d notice by now Haruka is not playing around with this lesbian thing).

But watching it closely, it actually really seems like the opposite to me.

Minako is trying to basically get Haruka to confirm she’s gay so she can ask advice from someone who deals with an outsider status  without asking directly being like “HEY SO YOU’RE GAY” since that would be impolite even by Minako standards (I can’t even imagine the added stigma of just saying something like that in Japan 20 years ago).

So she’s basically hinting around. “Do you have a boyfriend?” she asks, knowing the answer. Haruka’s vaguely irritated (ANGRY EYEBROWS) and says “I HAVE SAID I DON’T” (I don’t recall her saying this onscreen, so this is either an offscreen thing or Haruka being like “I BELIEVE I’VE SAID I DON’T WITH MY ACTIONS. OF HITTING ON YOU GUYS. AND GENERALLY BEING A BLATANT LESBIAN. JESUS.”)

But then Minako says “yeah, no boyfriend, but you have someone you like.” She basically states it as a fact. This is a foregone conclusion and she does not specify gender here. There is a person Haruka likes. That is incredibly obvious. And I think it’s fair to say if Minako knows that much, she probably knows who it is. EVERYONE WITH EYES KNOWS.

Haruka looks away at this point and makes this hilarious little grunting sound. “Not going to deny that, nope. Pine over her and how THE MISSION keeps us apart every night. Doing it right now in my head”.


And finally she specifies men it’s “would it REALLY be a man? Would there REALLY be a man…talented enough for someone like you”. And oh my god Minako. Sure this might be a translation thing, but with what I’m working with it’s basically Minako saying “WOULD IT ACTUALLY BE A DUDE, HMMM”

And at this point Haruka sighs and basically says “I am not outing myself or getting into an in depth discussion about being a lesbian with you, girl I barely know, so just ask what you want to ask and stop fishing.”

Part 3

Swan Queen and ‘Tallahassee’ music

OMG  i just realised something while watching a Swan Queen video on youtube that used the Tallahassee soundtrack to the video.
Do you guys remember the scene on the episode ‘Lilly’ where Emma fought with Lilly?

I thought so.  Well at the end after Regina talks her down from shooting Lilly there’s a little piece of music that plays. (from 3:33) 

Now ever since that episode I always thought that there must be some reason that they played that piece of music there but could not put my finger on it. And now what i just realised that its EXACTLY THE SAME intro(maybe just a key lower) as the ‘Tallahassee’ song from the  ‘Once Upon A Time Season 2 Soundtrack’ that comes on. Have a listen here: 

So why I found this so awesome is because I remembered this post by ‘thebulletgirl’ from a little while back:

Also of note is that in the same scene in which Neal said ‘Go find Tallahassee to Emma, Neal also said to Rumple while dying “You showed me what it is to make a true sacrifice, IT’S ABOUT SAVING THE ONES YOU LOVE’. Again what doe this remind you of in the season 4 final? Emma’s ultimate sacrifice to save Regina!

So what I took out of this find is that ouat is trying to tell us exactly that. Regina and Emma are each others ‘HOME/LOVE’ Or Regina is where Emma will find love. Maybe its like their own ‘true love’ song. :)
Like shit. How much more endgame can Emma and Regina get? <3

I Know (Dan Fluff)

A/N: I totally suck, I know. “new imagine before Vidcon” my ass. I apologize, I’ve inherited procrastination from Dan. It happens. Anyway, I have a few imagines written to make up for my absence. Once again, sorry, I suck.

Prompt: You’re best friends with Dan and Phil and you have a breakdown. Dan finds you and comforts you and ends up confessing his love for you (lol, cheesy I know)

Warning: a bit angsty, not too bad

-not my gif (as always, lmao x)

   I’m pathetic. I’m sitting here, on the floor, bawling my eyes out. I thought I was stronger than this. I thought I could finally get through this but I realize now that I can’t. After trying for so many years to get my grades up and saving up money to go to university, I’m in pieces because I’m not strong enough. I’m stupid because I pushed all my studying until last minute and now I’m trying to cram two days before the exam. The final exam. The exam that decides if I can pass this year or not (A/N: I’m practically three, I don’t know how school works). I can’t concentrate and now I feel like my head is about to explode. I have to step away from work or else I will probably flood my living room in tears. 

   I do the one thing that I can think of, call Dan and Phil. After getting my phone out of my pocket and having to type the number three times due to shaky hands, the number is finally ringing. I wait a solid 30 seconds before I finally get a response.

   “Hello?” Dan. Dan picked up the phone. I silently curse because of my general shyness when it came to communicating with Dan. I just felt nervous around him all the time. But I couldn’t back out now.

   “D-Dan, I…..I really n-need you” I choked out, tears streaming down my cheeks. 

   “Y/N, are you okay? What’s going on? Where are you?” I heard rustling in the background, assuming he was moving through his flat. 

   “I’m in m-my flat, I-I just need s-someone……p-p-please” I don’t think I’ve ever felt so weak in my life. I sounded helpless. 

   “I’m coming Y/N, I promise. I’m leaving right now. Take a few breaths for me. It’s going to be okay. I will be there soon. I’m here for you.” The urgency in his voice was prominent. It was like it was his mission to help me.  I heard the sound of a door slamming and harsh footsteps running down pavement. 

   “Okay….” I instantly relaxed a little, knowing Dan was going to help me. He would be here to help me.

anonymous asked:

Hey Chrissy!! How did you get so good at writing fast?? I always write so slowly because I overthink every detail and get distracted by other things like the internet. And I've been trying to work past that stuff, but I haven't had much success. So how did you work past those things?

The principle that’s worked best for me: give as little of a shit as possible during the first write-through.

I write stories sequentially. I know not everyone does, but when I sit down with an idea I start with the opening sentence and end with the final sentence. Everything in between I’m essentially dictating from my thoughts as I play it out in my head. I’m writing to keep up with my thoughts. And if a sentence I write sucks then I can go fix it while I edit. And if the pacing is weird or the scene is poorly set up—again, editing. All of that is for editing. Right now, it’s allowed to completely suck.

Maybe you’ll do A LOT of editing at first, because your writing-straight-through quality is kinda wonky. That’s fine, because you wrote it and now you just gotta polish it. And I’ve done this so much that I’ve had a ton of practice with writing-straight-through, and there will be entire paragraphs that remain unedited from first to final draft because I’m happy with how my off-the-cuff description went. (Other times, I might scrap and rewrite whole sections. Whole fics maybe. It’s a case-by-case thing.)

I used to have the same issue, and a lot of it was driven by the fact that—from the very first sentence—I’d feel like I’d need to write something I’d be proud to show my favorite author. I could write two sentences, decide sentence number two has problems, then spend 15 minutes tweaking sentence two to try to make it “perfect”. [Spoiler alert, don’t do this. If you don’t know what sentences 3, 4, 5, etc are, then how can you know the perfect way to write sentence 2?] Then I’d just burn out, because that is not sustainable at all.

So really: don’t give a fuck at first. Write robotically. Write literally. “He walked over there. He said this. He looked surprised.” like how a storyboarder might sketch out a scene. Then go back and give it depth.

Outlander 02x04 La Dame Blanche

At the end of this episode my first thought was, “Now THAT’S how you do an episode with a lot of stuff in it.” There was so much that happened in that episode and it was all handled with an efficiency and flow that was simply beautiful. There is not a single place where I think they took too much time but there were a few places where - because of the time constraints - I think a little more time would have been helpful, just to let a moment (particularly some plot-heavy moments) breathe; seriously, two extra minutes would have made this episode pretty much perfect for me. 

After two viewings, I still can’t make my own thoughts flow coherently - I basically word vomited at @gotham-ruaidh after the first viewing - so this week’s episode is getting bullet points. (Below the cut for length and a few foreshadowing/spoilers)

I won. But NaNoWriMo was just pure chaos.

Five things I did, but you shouldn’t do for NaNoWriMo

1. Ignore the outline
I didn’t outline at all for NaNoWriMo this year (it’s my first year). I made kind of iffy character descriptions, kind of iffy one sentence summaries, kind of iffy background information about stuff. But worst of all, I decided to just roll with it and not outline properly before November hit me - bad, bad, decision. It all ended in chaos, the story and plot and the characters just lived a life of their own, somehow I managed to keep them more or less caged. But there were times I had to stare at a blank document trying to figure out how to get it all going in the right direction again.

2. Not writing when I probably should, and could
I did this a lot. I was tired, wanted to see a film, wanted to read a book, wanted to play a game - so I didn’t write. This amounted to three or four days when I wrote about 4000 words instead of just 2000. For me writing that much at a time usually seeps the creativity out of me, making me write utter shit.

3. Including “filler” scenes
Fillers are crap. But I just thought I had to write a scene with my MC going to the cinema with her two friends while everyone else waited for a suspect to wake up. Why did she go to the film? Never explained. This ended up with me not finishing by the 50k mark, but I could have if I just had an outline, or just didn’t write those fucking useless filler scenes when I was on a creativity shortage.

4. Not participating on the forums on the NaNo site
I was so stressed with the novel, uni, boyfriend and demanding parents that I totally forgot about the forums on the site where thousands of people experienced the same thing I did. I regret not writing encouraging notes to someone or asking for people’s help. 

5. Surrounding myself with “Do not care”-people
My parents supported me, my little brother did and my boyfriend too. But, truly, they didn’t care. It was Zero Fucks Given when I joyfully exclaimed that I had written 50k words. All they asked was “Okay… so… what did you win?” fuck you. Next year I’ll find a friend who cares and only tell them if I win, the others won’t think twice about it anyways.
