I daydream about listening to a studio version of Big Boots everytime i listen to it and now with all these rumours going around (which i don’t know why i think they are true) i don’t know what the hell am i going to do if they actually release it for the 20th anniversary of okc….
You know what would be in the public domain by now if laws were still fuckin following themselves when it came to public domain???
In an alternate universe I could publish And Monarchs To Behold and make money of it like white dudes do off of Sherlock Holmes, but no, here I am, lying in bed in college, avoiding sleep and forced to deal with a culture that thinks fanfiction isn’t good because it’s not profitable but also has fanfiction and merchandizing as one of its largest revenue sources because of restricting that creativity, and just the fact that AMTB is based of Batman characters in a reimagining is enough that I can’t even make a patreon but Les Mis can be a musical, you can rewrite every single one of Shakespeare’s plays, and also everything else from the 50s is chill
If I ever publish a book don’t let me give in to the copyright bullshit and let future generations have their goddamn public domain so culture > immediate profits
I think about how Zevran automatically puts on the Dalish Gloves and Antivan Boots no matter what other equipment he has on a lot…it fucks me up man.
Like, lets say that instead of the Warden buying his armor, he spends some of his own gold on a nice pair of leather gloves. They aren’t Antivan, but they’re of fine make, and the best he’s going to get in awhile.
But then the Warden hands him these random, beat up Dalish gloves because they remembered him talking about his mother.
They remembered this one conversation enough to keep these ratty things and hand them to him, because they cared enough about him to remember.
He’s never torn anything off his body so quickly as he did those nice, expensive gloves he bought, and never thinks about wearing them again.
