I know I shouldn’t be adding more fuel to the whole Berseria discourse that’s been happening since it’s definitely been beaten to death like a dead horse. Yes, there is misogyny and sexism prevalent in the game. Yes, I agree that it’s quite irksome at times and it gets me annoyed at certain characters as well.
But put all that bullshit in a blender, shit on it, and pour it into the sewer and put it aside, then honestly, in my own personal opinion, Berseria has one of the strongest and memorable cast I’ve seen in a Tales game in a pretty long time. Plus, I’ve been itchin’ to do Berseria character analysis’ for awhile now.
I don’t speak for everyone or anyone other than myself for this one but I want to start off with how much I love Velvet.
me, an intellectual:
*flashbacks to the bisexual Dorian/Sera mods, the pyjamas, and the racist egg* dragon age and everything related to it is trash and DA4 will be too and the fandom is the literal worst and I Can't Wait For DA4
I’ve only ever heard one person bash it, and their entire beef seemed to be that the company was bought part way through construction and some of the maps are a bit samey.
I can deal with repeated game maps, good Lord.
We have the most in depth and most interesting character arcs and party banter. The most complex and relevant politics - fucking refugees! You play an immigrant! And that’s before we touch on mages and the change and dalish elves! Inquisition is meant to be the big politics game, but you get so much less in the way of characters having a personal connection to the issues. The characters are massively under developed in comparison and I found the romances really disappointing. Not because Dorian and Cullen and Casandra ext aren’t interesting characters, but because their personal quests feel truncated. There just wasn’t… enough. Which for as sprawling a game as Inquisition, is unforgivable.
So, sure, if all you want to do is hack and slash in pretty scenery, I guess inquisition is better, but for me, it was a let down. It has some nice moments, but none of the right pacing and tension and DRAMA of DA2.
I really hope DA4 tries for something between the two.
seriously there was NOT enough ciri/yen interactions in tw3. they have such a strong, special relationship in the books like…..they LITERALLY call each other daughter/mother and ciri wanted to be called cirilla of vengerberg………..and to see that kinda sidelined so that the geralt/ciri relationship was highlighted was so sad. like i GET it that geralt and ciri’s relationship had to be shown as much as it was for plot purposes but it didn’t have to be at the expense of yennefer. ciri says that yennefer has “plans for her” and lowkey implies at one point that she trusts avallac'h more than her, which is so not true at all. such a missed opportunity on cdpr’s part, imo, and one i feel is seen a lot throughout yen’s character in the game.
okay so i don’t even know where this came from but
i was doing this white phial quest and here i am to get my forsworn heart and, as you might know, i got this mod that gets ulfric for follower and husband and obviously he’s with me on all of my quests
and there we are in combat and he literally went like “wake me up when you’re ready to fight me” and i had to pause the game to laugh for at least 5 minutes
SOS I need some good zutara smut, do u know of any? I've found some good ones but I need something new ya know
My top 3 favorite Zutara smut fics:
1.) The Games We Play by Em Dixon - Summary: “Sometimes, Zuko and Katara played a game called “no touching”. This time, Katara took things to a new level. She would break him. Smut.” (BEST DOM!TARA SMUT/SCENARIO I’VE EVER READ HANDS DOWN. EM DIXON IS A GODDESS)
2.) Just Stop Talking by TheAdamantDaughter - Summary: “
Can you guess who melts the igloo?” Came about (I think) when some douche anon sent @theadamantdaughter hatemail, and she madethe bEST POSSIBLE RESPONSE EVER AND TREATED IT AS A SMUTTY ZUTARA PROMPT WHICH TURNED IT INTO THIS GLORIOUS BABY.
3.) Bones by sadladybug - Smut and fluff. I have no words to describe how beautiful this is. Just read it. <3

-A different skeleton stacked like 30 hotdogs on my head, it was pretty wild.
-I hugged exactly three goats.
-Spiders sold me spider snacks, made from real spiders.
-I got to pet approximately five dogs all at the same time. It wasn’t quite as cute as it sounds.
-Oh SWEET MERCIFUL JESUS WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT OTHER DOG’S NECK.
-So, me and this angler fish lady became famous musicians together or something? A skeleton was selling concert tickets made of toilet paper (wait… Monsters don’t have bathrooms where did he even get toilet paper?).
-I got pranked across time and space. It was pretty funny, I guess.
-I helped a lesbian fish knight and a bisexual otaku lizard work out their relationship problems.
-A flower tried to eat my soul, but I think we’re cool now.
-I flirted with a jello monster. And also a ghost. And that skeleton. And an airplane. No goats, though; that would just be weird.
-I learned many important things. Like the fact that snails make terrible shoelaces.

your fictional spouse, who is made of pixels, got you some flowers, which are not even made of pixels because they don't actually exist in the game except for being told that you got them
