I was just talking to Rach and she said that Halo gives her headaches too. Obviously, Rach can play Mass Effect for hours on end without headache. It’s worth noting that Mass Effect is not a first person shooter, per se, it’s an over the shoulder shooter.  And, if watching FFXIII didn’t give you a headache, there’s no reason Mass Effect should.

Added bonus: you will be controlling the camera on a console, not Holly, so one hopes you won’t get motion sick. And, I mean, it’s not like Holly had marvelous control of the game anyway :P

TL;DR: Helena, give Mass Effect a shot because it’s fucking worth it. IT’s like driving.

7,15,23. I suppose if you don't want to do all of them, you can just choose one XDD

I’ll answer them all!

7. Would you rather be hurt by the one you trust the most or the one you love the most?

Love. Because trust… Trust is what you build over months, years. Trust is completely opening up your worst side of yourself to someone and hoping—expecting—them to still care for you and want you around. Love, you can fall into. With anyone. Especially when you’re talking about me—I fall in love very fast, and easily. But trust is built. And betrayal is a cruel, alienating, damaging thing. 

A broken heart heals.

If it’s someone I love AND trust? Welp.

15. What do you think would be the hardest thing for you to give up? Why would it be hard to lose?

Give up…? Hm. My friends. Like, I could never, ever be alone. I’m too… social. Too dependant on other people’s opinions, modes of thinking, doing, everything. I can’t live without my friends. I wouldn’t be able to understand who I am, how I function, what I should or shouldn’t do. I’m nothing without the people I’ve come to know.

23. If you could do anything or wish anything, what would it be?

Oh my god, I know it’s kind of arrogant or whatever, but I really feel like I have everything I want in my life right now. I have a thesis that’s almost totally finished, I have inspiration for further projects, I have all my friends who I’ve met and made over the years, I have all these experiences that I’ve loved and hated, that I’ve regretted and and not regretted. I’ve come a long way from where I was just a few months ago. And I’m going to grad school!

Although, I guess, if I’m going to be totally self-indulgent… maybe like.  A perfectly clean apartment, and a significant other? Hahaha! Maybe also less belly fat…! And money xD

Since I rather dislike CP, and they dont offer the art courses I want to take [animation LOL], I should just transfer to UMBC. Except that means applying and finding jobs again and idk I think Im lazy. I should probably not be lazy.

Oh yeah. Helen’s planning on going there.

Helena, if nothing else, I know that you’re driven. AKA, not lazy. Especially when you’re doing something you believe in.

You should transfer. It honestly sounds like one of the best options for you.


happy two decades to helena and almost two decades to alexa!

…i know you love this video bitchez

5. An anime I can’t stand

I am going to get a lot of side-eyes for this, but I actually did not enjoy Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Something about it just put me off it.

12. My favorite anime character of all time

Oh shit. Um. Roronoa Zoro? Luffy? Li Syaoran? Matt? LINA INVERSE????

…Probably Lina Inverse. 

21. If I could have any anime character’s hair style, who would it be 

LOL what? Maybe Tomoyo’s in Tsubasa. Her hair is goddamn beautiful.

totorororo asked:

lucius malfoy and molly weasley!

Lucius Malfoy: What is your most prized possession? 

Hmm. Something I prize… I imagine that’d be something I don’t think I could live without. It seems to cheesy to say something like “my hands,” but people can lose those. And I don’t like the idea of not having them. I would be able to draw. Or bake. Or type. 

(Realistically I could find a way around all that bUT THIS IS A HYPOTHETICAL QUESTION).

There’s also this stuffed animal I have that I call Bird. He’s this big yellow puffball and I got him for $20 at a con. Elsewhere, they cost like, $100 at least. Can’t lose that one. We’ve been through a lot.


Molly Weasley: What is the proudest moment of your life? 

So far? Probably getting into art school, and then going to art school. It seemed like such an outlandish possibility at the time. One imagines finishing my thesis would be another one of those moments.

oooh that sounds so cool!! :)

space is literally the coolest thing ever. of all time. literally.

Yes!!!!  Spaaaaaaaace!!  I am thinking about focusing my grad school thesis on it too :).  But first… I gotta get into grad school @.@!!

totorororo replied to your post: OH, and I changed my username everyone! People…

I liked the ‘a’ but oh well :( Made it sound more complete but that’s probably ‘cause I’m used to it. At least it’s not like laura or rachel’s which I still can’t read OR pronounce.

Yeah Laura’s I was like.. the…nit…sank in…asdlkjbf?  When Rach pointed it out to me I was like OHHHHHHHHH.  Then it sank into the swamp.  And I felt pretty stupid.

Rachel’s is a Homestuck reference. Like “executioner,” but with thresh- (like in threshold) as a prefix, and -ness as a suffix.
