oh livia



what kind of monster have I created

Another build post I’m sorry I’m just too proud of my girl. Most people run Fury + Ruby Sword and I think that’s fine too. I just had a -Atk Karel benched for a long time and I thought the Wo Dao looked prettier with her sprite.

She one-rounds every Hector btw

Other build options

Budget Dancer [Any but avoid -Spd]

Weapon: Ruby Sword

A: Fury

B: Wings of Mercy

Most common build. Your standard to-go Olivia. Can check most Hectors. Note: A -Def or -HP Olivia with Ruby Sword- will die to a +Atk Hector with Bonfire regardless if she is baiting or initiating. Be careful :(

“This is going to sting!” [+Spd, +Atk, not -Def]

Weapon: Wo Dao / Ruby Sword

A: Swift Sparrow / Fury

B: Swordbreaker / Desperation

Why bring a swordsman when you can bring a swordswoman who can dance?

“Stop staring at me!” (Expensive) [not -Atk or -Spd]

Weapon: Wo Dao / Ruby Sword

A: Distant Counter

B: R Tomebreaker

Now you have yourself a red/green mage killer!

I can’t recommend Killing Edge because it’s hard to make it work with her stat spread. Even when paired with Luna it just doesn’t work.

There you have it. I’ll look more into it later when I have more time but these are my recommendations for Olivia right now. She sports the highest BST among all currently released singer/dancers. Dancers are annoying in arena. Don’t make the mistake of underestimating her! She may be shy but she makes every bit of SI investment count.

Running This Town: The Machiavellian Livia Drusilla

If you haven’t seen HBO’s “Rome”, you should. It’s not what anyone would call accurate, no matter what anyone tries to tell you otherwise, but it’s good. And even when they’re doing crazily inaccurate shit, the historical domain characters’ personalities are left intact enough for me to buy into it. But one of the places where “Rome” really fucked up was the storyline concerning Octavian's—aka Caesar Augustus—marriage.

Basically: Octavian sees some chick at a party, he proposes, tells her he likes to beat women because it turns him on—flash forward a few years and plot twist! She’s slapping him around in bed. And he loves it. That, and a little moment where Octavian’s mom Atia—the most inaccurate character on the whole show, by the way—completely slams her daughter-in-law is the most we see of Livia Drusilla. The actress is good. The characterization? The entire storyline for that matter?

Oh, honey. The real Livia would roll her eyes at those shenanigans. Amateurs.

Living the thug life.

If Tiberius Blackthorn is named for the Roman emperor truly thought of as Emperor Tiberius (Tiberius Claudius Nero) then it makes me really emotional

Part of the reason he became emperor at all was because his mother strongly believed in him, grooming him to greatness and making sure he was not overlooked by his stepfather, the emperor.

Mother’s name? Livia Drusilla.

Is Cassie Clare picked these names for that purpose, then I’m going to get so many Blackthorn sibling feelings.

Yeah Write in 2017

Hey yeah writers-

Remember me? It’s been a while! I more or less took 2016 “off” from Tumblr to focus on some other creative pursuits. I let Yeah Write run on autopilot, but this year I plan to revamp this space and give it some awesome new features—while still posting the writing prompts that are the core of what we do. Lots more info to come but just wanted to check in, give an update, and wish everyone a Happy New Year!

Talk soon, Livia

I love Livia Drusilla so much like I just read about this time she used letters Augustus wrote her like ten years ago to prove Tiberius had always been stubborn and intractable or w/e and I mean Suetonius Disclaimer this might be partly or wholly false but oh my god the idea that she saved all of her husband’s letters and kept them all organized and reread them I’m about to cry , oh my GOD, LIVIA

Olivia: Despite what you think, my universe is not at war with yours. This all began because a man came over here to save a boy and twenty-five years later, I came back to save that same boy. But if you let me die, then we will strike back and we will fight. But if you let me go, both universes can survive. There must be another way and I promise you I will find it.
