  • fighting my 1st dragon in Inquisition: The dragon is the monster. It rains fiery death upon me and my people. I must destroy it!
  • fighting my last, 10th dragon in Inquisition: I am the monster. Look at it, it's just sleeping there peacefully. Harming no one. And I'm about to kill it. The last of its kind in Thedas. Oh god I am the monster.

so I beat Prince of Persia 2008

it was a very enjoyable, gorgeous game that, despite being enjoyable and gorgeous, I would refer constantly to as PoP Lite for its (in my opinion) overly easy and hand-hold-y platforming and unrewarding combat. Its easiness made it a nice, fluffy, fun game to come home and de-stress to but it’s no Sands of Time, I didn’t connect to it emotionally or mentally

until the last 5 minutes of the game where all that changed 

and now I gotta write about it cuz in a span of 5 minutes I felt distress, disbelief, and finally resigned sadness, and dammit I was not expecting to finally actually care about this game

spoilers below obvsly

Because some people in #aion still don’t seem to understand:

If you want to share something that you didn’t make, either include credit or don’t post it

If it’s on tumblr, reblog it. The reblog system makes it so easy to share things, the only reason that you’d go through the extra steps of saving and re-uploading everything into a new post is to erase the creator’s name and replace it with yours. 

If you found it off-tumblr, the best thing to do is first contact the creator about wanting to share it. If they say no, don’t repost it. Post a link to their page containing it.

Sometimes getting in contact isn’t possible, but in either case, the location you found it should be included in your post. (The same post, visibly- none of those stupid nonexistent easter-egg credit links hidden around the corner and behind your left ear.) Tumblr has a content source system for this exact reason. Use it.

If no other source is entered there or in the post itself, the content is automatically attributed to you. It’s synonymous with claiming ownership of the content and everyone who sees the post will be under the impression that you created it. This is also how copyrights are claimed when artists/writers/etc first publish their work online. This is why people get upset. When you do this with something that isn’t yours, it’s theft. Plagiarism. It’s not appreciation or respect. This applies when sharing things anywhere: any forum, blog, or website.

Tumblr can and will remove content you post that isn’t yours. If the creator didn’t want their work reposted, even with credit, they can ask for it to be removed.

If reposting happens to you, you can report it here: https://www.tumblr.com/dmca

They’re quick about it, and it does extend to edits. It does not extend to toon remodels or Photoshop actions/presets.

If you’re going to help your legionmates, be fucking clear and honest.

If you don’t want to run something, say so.

If you don’t want to help anyone, even when the lowbies or members that just hit 65 rarely ask you for help, then say so.

If you’d rather run EB with 23 other people all day and form a tiny clique in legion, then do so. Make it clear that you aren’t going to be as helpful as you claim to be.

Don’t beat around the bush or get pissy when the legion can’t run on your schedule. Don’t get pissy when someone asks for help either.

Just fucking speak up. No misunderstandings. Nada.

also like the whole thing about “supermodels” in Mad Max: Fury Road is

yes? there are supermodels? most if not all the Wives were in fact played by models?

to which we/George Miller are like, so what?

as if them being supermodels makes them… less valid?? as actresses? as women? as people? makes this film less good of a movie?

thing is, them being supermodels actually SERVES THE NARRATIVE. It works on every level of context. Immortan Joe’s most prized harem consists of the most slender, tall, long-legged, voluptuous, beautiful women in his kingdom - Victoria’s Secret models whom that society (and ours) has on one hand elevated to be the pinnacle of the standards of female beauty, but on the other hand reduced to being primarily objects of male lust and little else. That people would see the Wives in the trailer and immediately dismiss them as just impossibly beautiful window dressing in a male-centered movie (lookin atchu Anna Kendrick) proves a point. That Mad Max: Fury Road is a completely absurd yet totally believable extension of what’s true now.

That the Wives were portrayed as frail, scared, determined, distraught, capable, self-possessed and surprisingly full of personality, and not sexualized at all despite the sexual nature of their dress and their function was just, like, overwhelming to me. (yeah, low standards, I know) So what if they’re supermodels. They have every right to freedom and survival and respect as any other non-female or non-model or human being. 

And then the Vuvalini appeared and that scene where you first meet them I was so anxious, like, oh no, there’s gonna be one semi-accidental nipslip here, to service the male audience members, it’s gonna happen, and then it doesn’t and the scene is instead really just full of beauty and grace?? dark hair and muslin billowing artfully in a strong desert wind and an even stronger woman running through it - and then I was crying for the next 10 minutes

hell I’m crying RIGHT NOW just thinking about it and I’m going to stop writing about this tl;dr the MRAs were right this is distinctly a feminist movie and George Miller is a feminist and they can all pack up their dicks and move to Australia like they keep threatening to do and that metal-as-fuck country will finish them all off for us

this is a PSA
