It’s from this TV spot

It’s a deleted scene, one of the ways Ginger and Merlin try to jog Harry’s memory. He’s spread out, limbs tied to horses. Merlin can’t bare the sight of Harry in so much pain, so he unsheathes the blade and cuts him free.

(If I remember right, Merlin doesn’t cut all the ropes, so Harry ends up being flung and dragged through grass as the horse he’s tied to gets spooked.)

Loved Velaris. I laughed, I cried, you're an amazing author. I was wondering if you had an ETA for the Rowaelin (and now Manorian) smuts?

Rowaelin…. I’m hoping wednesday (I have the day off), but that could be ambitious. IDK, with me and smuts it’s hard to say.

After Rowaelin I’d really love to get the deleted scene from “Velaris” expanded into a standalone, just as a break, then Manorian while I work on that.

So for Manorian… I really can’t say. I’ll let you all know when I’m getting close. If you have a tumblr and would like to be tagged or kept up to date, just let me know!!!

And thank you for the kind words about “Velaris”!!!!!! I read every single comment and tag (seriously, I stalk the reblogs) and I am so happy everyone is enjoying it~~~~~

Are they even watching? I mean, I'm not even watching, but I can tell from the screenshots and gifs that Robert looks about 3 seconds from throwing up every time he's in a scene with her. Hell, he'd probably rather make out with Larry than touch her again.

Idk but you don’t understand how many of these anons I get. I legit get them so often and just delete them.

Basically Robert would rather fake have sex with Larry, literally get naked in bed with the man to sell it and fake feelings for him then just play Rebecca. He can’t even bring himself to fake date her. He hates her.

How many polygons should I limit a goldsrc model to?

Well, its a bit of a complicated question but I can give you a rough estimate based on various games and the style you are going for.  These numbers are averaged from a bunch of models I threw in a model viewer and are in triangle count:

HalfLife Retail (1998):
Characters & Enemies - 550~750
Large enemies - 900~1800
Weapon View Models - 600~1000
World Weapon/Props 32~400

HalfLife “HD” (optional with 2001 Blue Shift )
Characters & Enemies - 1000~1600
Weapon View Models - 1200~1700
World Weapon/Props - 100~500

Day Of Defeat (2003)
Characters & Enemies - 1000~1300
World Weapon/Props 100~1000
Weapon View Models - 1000~1800

Counter-Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scenes (2004)
Characters & Enemies - 1200~1700
Weapon View Models - 2000~2700
World Weapon/Props 150~2000

PS2 Models/Ambient Impact/HL-Improvement team/Sven models (various years)
Characters & Enemies 2000~4500
Weapon View Models - 2000~2700
World Weapon/Props 300~2000

You can theoretically go higher with some convoluted tricks but you seriously start running into the law of diminishing returns with GoldSrc’s texture & hard vertex weight limits (which makes animation more difficult at higher poly).  I consider things higer poly than the last section tends to be what should be the upper limits.  Also don’t bother porting from Source/newer engines; it always looks terrible due to a variety of factors.

One thing in particular a lot of people overlook is how much detail you can fit into the texture if you are a skilled artist.  This also takes into consideration how you “light” as in paint the textures to be lit since you do not have any fancy shaders as newer engines have. I hope that helps.  I do intend to eventually do an improvement on my site guides in the future.


The general nodded in approval. Rhodey was about to follow him to the Humvee when his cell phone rang. […] He answered it with a curt, “Yeah?”

“Well?” That was all Pepper Potts said. “Well?”

“Well… he’s alive. We know that much.”

“Because you didn’t find his body.”

“Yeah,” he admitted.

“Who’s got him, Rhodey? What do they want with him? Ransom? What?”

“We don’t know, Pepper. I wish to God we did, but we don’t. But we have our best people on it. We’ll find him.”

“You’ll find him.” There was distinct bitterness in her voice. “Because we’ve done such a fantastic job finding people hiding in mountains in Afghanistan, haven’t we…”


“You were supposed to protect him, dammit! You with all your weapons and security! You were…”

He had never heard her like this. She had never been anything other than in control, on top of everything. Smiling, efficient, nothing ever threw her. To hear her like this tore him up.

He tried to respond, but before he could, Pepper had brought herself under control. “I’m sorry,” she said.

“You don’t have apolo-”

“No. I do.” Her voice had reacquired its detached, businesslike demeanor. […] You’ll keep me apprised.“

"Absolutely. You’ll be the first one to know.” […]

He pocketed his cell phone and wondered, not for the first time, if Tony Stark was aware of just how completely, totally, and madly in love with him Pepper Potts was. For that matter, he wondered if Pepper herself knew.

life ruiner otps ~ Anne and Gilbert from Anne of Green Gables

“For a moment Anne’s heart fluttered queerly and for the first time her eyes faltered under Gilbert’s gaze and a rosy flush stained the paleness of her face. It was as if a veil that had hung before her inner consciousness had been lifted, giving to her view a revelation of unsuspected feelings and realities. Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps.. perhaps… love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.”
