A year ago today, I got a crew together to make a fan game for @therealjacksepticeye. I had no idea that it would be one of the best decisions I ever made.
From day 1, the community came through for me, offering me support when I needed it and signal boosting posts asking for help. In all that time, not a single person told me not to make this game or to give up. No hate asks. No trolling. Nothing negative whatsoever.
Instead, I received nothing but encouragements. In a year, this blog has amassed 748 followers, all of whom are special to me and have been such a blessing during this development time and after the game’s release. Even when I pushed back our release date from April to August, no one complained. Everyone showed me what a community is supposed to do for its members.
I’d like to take a moment to thank those who were there from the very beginning to the very end, which is just two people: @celestialsushi and our art director Alina (who is not on tumblr). You two joined the team on day one and stuck it through to the end, which is incredible. I appreciate what you’ve done for the game and for the community so much.
I’d also like to thank @mercurytuba for such an amazing soundtrack (and @kingofthewilderwest for a bit of music and suggesting him to the team). Thank you so much, also, to @puk128 for joining the team early on as a creative consultant and to @whatsthepointofthisbloganyway for doing a let’s play of the demo. I will never forget that first ever let’s play and your excitement about the demo. You represented the people for whom I made this game. Thank you also to @danicobalt and @lilflamingoshorts for your let’s plays of the full game!
Jack, you have created an incredible community. A community that means so much to me. I wasn’t an active member until I made this game but now I am so proud of have contributed. You are such a wonderful person who has inspired so many people to be the very best that they can be. I’m so thankful my friend begged me to watch your Undertale Let’s Play. It’s another one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
And to you guys in the community, thank you for being here. Whether you followed us this morning or since November, I appreciate your support so much more than I can express.
A Wondrous State by hetrez - 1.7k / G Beautiful little piece about Andrew spooning Neil and fighting to be okay with it. <3
Baltimore Blues by SpangleBangle - 17k / E A rewrite of what happened during Baltimore from Andrew’s POV. The beeeeeeessst one of these types out there. Just read everything Spangle writes, do yourself that favour.
hey anyways you all should read The Parts of You by @ladyofpurple because i just binged it and im love with it because it has some great ladynoir moments and adrinette friendship development and even some angst
I am seriously concerned about the casting directors on Reign...
Guys, are they ok? Are they even trying? Do they think we’re stupid? Have they employed a script adviser to check the consistency of what they’re making? If they have, they need to fire them real quick, because whoever they are hasn’t seemed to realise that CATHERINE’S CHILDREN ARE ALL REAPPEARING AS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PEOPLE who are WAY TOO OLD!
Let’s take a trip down memory lane to the good old days when Reign was kinda alright.
Remember this little guy? This lil’ cutie from Season 1? Lil’ Charles. Just in case this picture doesn’t make it quite QUITE clear that this person is a young CHILD, here’s another one:
He’s tiny right, I mean Megan Follows is small, and he barely reaches her shoulder. Ok good, we’ve established that Charles in Season 1 was a young child of around eight years old. Good stuff.
Now I know Reign has a habit of stretching, embellishing and basically destroying history. Mary and Francis are supposed to be like 14 at the start, and clearly they’re older, but that’s ok, that’s fine, we’ll roll with it.
The show begins in 1557:
Nice, some fluffy goats and fluffy clouds just to prove this. I’ve done my research people.
So in real life, ol’ Francie Boi was supposed to die in 1560 after being King for roughly one year
And sure thing, as I said, Reign likes to stretch history like, BEYOND the breaking point. So it’s entirely plausible that on the show Francis was king for a little bit longer, maybe we’ll give him an extra year or two. Which means the next time we see young dude Charlie he’ll have aged… hmmm around five years or so? He’ll be approx 12, right?
WRONG! What the FuCk ma dudes, this guy right here is NOT CHARKLES I don’t know who he is, but Catherine and the rest of them should all be really concerned, they’ve been hella duped! He’s frickin old enough to fool around with this random chick
He’s aged like 10 years in 5, and NO ONE EVEN NOTICED, not Catherine, not Francis, not Mary, and especially not anyone in the writing or casting department apparently.
Now let’s move onto Elisabeth, Catherine and Henry’s eldest daughter, dis chick from the pilot
Remember her? The one who married the Spanish dude, and then they had to have sex while a whole lot of old men watched, and Mary and her lil’ sweet naive buddies got all hot and flustered cos they were sneakily watching too? Yeah that one.
As you can see, this woman is clearly a BRUNETTE. Well, apparently Spain has really changed Elisabeth. Like, REEAALLY changed her. So good to see her back in 4x01! She goes by Leesa now, she’s blonde and older and basically looks like a completely different person…
I guess Catherine just has so many children she honestly can’t keep track and doesn’t even notice when they return to France looking like they’ve endured intense plastic surgery to reconstruct their faces, or somehow age them enormously.
Catherine has the names of all her children written in her bible, although her youngest son Hercule is missing, but I think the camera has just cut off the bottom of the page.
At the end of Season 3, Catherine brings back this dude below to lowkey threaten Charles with MUrdEr (the most ooc Catherine has ever been, honestly this show is just…)
Now god knows who this one is, I mean it could be Lil’ Henry making a comeback from Season 1 when he was blonde and cute (see below) and got kidnapped by his insane potato-sack-wearing half sister
If so, he too has had a significant dye job at the castle salon. Except whoever this kid is in Season 3, he can’t be Henry because he’s considerably younger than Charles
I mean, what’s the deal? Charles gets hit by the ageifying-ray gun, but his little bro Henry doesn’t? How is that fair?? They never actually mention him by name, so possibly it is Hercule.
Which would mean that this hunky blonde dude Megan’s been posting on her Instagram and captioning with “My boys”…
IS HENRY WHAT THE FUCK YOU GUYS! He looks even older than Charles, I CANNOT BELIEF THIS
This makes absolutely ZERO sense, I do NOT understand. The casting directors and writers of Reign either don’t comprehend human viewer intelligence and the ability to pick up on the ENORMOUS INCONSISTENCIES THEY THROW AT US WITH WORRYING REGULARITY, or they themselves have serious memory issues. Or possibly they just don’t care. I really don’t know.
I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way to watch Reign now is by ignoring these massively aged characters, ignoring the yawn storylines, ignoring when the only original characters we have left suddenly rewrite their whole personalities; I’m looking at you Catherine ‘I would literally die for my children’ de Medici, suddenly going, ‘Oh yeah Charles, I have loooads of other sons, don’t you forget that, I might just kill you to become regent again, k, love you, bye.’
I’ll just focus on the pretty clothes and Megan Follows’ profound talent to somehow make something out of this steaming pile of insanity.
Long story short, the only thing Reign is consistent at, is being inconsistent.
Even so, I’ll watch it every week cos I’m total trash. Rip me.
ALRIGHT ELLA SINCE I GUESS I’M SUCH A BIG NAME FANDOM BULLY , I’M GONNA BE THE ONE TO MAKE THE CALL OUT POST !!! are we ready guys ? this one is gonna be a doozy . hold on to your seats , because @LEGILLIMENCYY is definitely a stealer , and i’m sick of the way she has treated my good friend ally , as well as others on this stupid fucking website .
i had made a smaller post about this last night for my followers , but since this problem has continued to escalate , ella has given me no other choice . we are here now , in this toxicity called call out culture . i’m normally not a fan of it , but this time i had to speak up . ally is my friend , a long time friend at that . and when you fuck with her , you fuck with me .
so let’s start at the beginning , shall we ? the basis of everything you’ve stolen ? i say your ‘theme insp.’ is as good a place to start as any :
i just … wow . that is … that is some damn good‘inspiration’ you stole there , huh ? ripped off practically her entire edited agirlingrey code , right down to the font styles and link placements . i can’t even give you ps credit because even your bg image looks extremely similar to ally’s . so i guess kudos to you for knowing how to steal other people’s codes .
but you didn’t stop there , did you ? no , of course not !why would you ? you were already stealing her code , why not go ahead and steal some of her headcanon’s too ?
wow dude . just wow . did you even rewrite it ? or just copy / paste ? and yes , please make sure to look at the hovered dates on each : ally’s is from 6 months ago , while ella’s copied version dates back less than a week to even HOURS at least . you even stole her tag name , which is pretty sad .
and then , when you were finally called out on your stealing , you BLOCKED ally for calmly trying to talk to you , for ASKING you to take down HER content . it was only after i and a few others started sending messages that you BLOCKED US AS WELL , and then messaged ally with the most insincere , bullshit excuse ever heard ever up to date :
i see a lot of things wrong with this , so let’s just name them off , shall we ? 1 . ‘and none of us – with the exception of oc blogs – actually created these characters so to claim any kind of originality to anything is honestly bull.’ i just … what ? what kind of fresh hell is this ? that is like , the shittiest excuse ever made up , like ever . that’s like a 7 year old who knows they did wrong trying to back track and get out of the blame . i just want you to know , that every writer is laughing right now . we are all laughing , because that is honestly the stupidest thing i have ever fucking read in my entire life .
2 .‘but since you and your little group of friends are all worked up about it i’ll delete my headcanons and kind of start my blog over.’fuck , i would love to stop you right there , but there’s so much more i need to get to . um . ally’s friend group ISN’T little . there are loads of people on this site that have her back , and love her for being the person she is , not the ‘fake sickly sweet’ bitch you think she is . oh , and yes ella , i have the screenshot of that ask , too !you know , the one you deleted? let’s post that too , huh ?
oh wow , and look at all those vague posts there too ;newsflash , ella : that anon on the right , the one who called you worthless ? that wasn’t ally . ally doesn’t stalk your blog . i think you kind of have that backwards huh ? considering all your headcanon posts are hers from what , 6 months back ? i think that seems a little stalkerish , hmm ?
but i digress , getting back to your shitty excuse of an apology : 3 .‘but whatever. i’ll [ delete ? ] my headcanons and start fresh …’ so … they’re not technically yours , considering you weren’t the one who thought of them . and if you were going to delete them , why are they still on your blog ?why did you lie ?
listen ella , none of us wanted it come to this , but you made this . you did this to yourself . not only did you steal ally’s things and take extreme inspiration from her , but you lied about it , and dragged her name through the proverbial mud , and i for fucking one will not take that sitting down . so take down your stolen headcanons , make a theme that isn’t based off of someone else’s , and come up with your own goddamn things , or face my wrath . the next time i see this happening with you , i will report you to tumblr for theft and harassment . what you’ve done is childish , it’s pathetic and immature and unbecoming . i’m not sorry to drag your ass through the fucking dirt like you did ally and present you to the public :a dirty fucking thief with the attitude to match .
get off your goddamn high horse . no one here accepts the shit that you’re pulling , so there’s no need for your shitty self entitlement , k ?k .
(or, why anna is super fucking excited that chris chibnall is the new show runner of doctor who)
Preemptive warning that this is a huge fandom switch, guys. I know, I know, I’m a Star Trek blog, but Anna was a Doctor fan first, and the Whovian blood runs deep. Point being, if you’re here for McCoy, skip this one. If you’re a fan of Anna’s Overanalyzing, Doctor Who, Chris Chibnall, RTD, or even The Moff, stick around, because this is the post for you.
Below the cut, Anna discusses the merits of the Russel T. Davies era, the strengths and shortcomings of Steven Moffat’s vision of the Doctor, the many shining qualities of BBC’s Broadchurch, and her hype for Chris Chibnall as the new Doctor Who show runner.
(holy hot damn, I’ve outdone myself this time)
I am getting really fucking sick of the Doctor, guys.
CG: IT WAS FATED TO HAPPEN, I GUESS. WITH THE UNCONCEIVABLE HORSESHIT THAT IS THE ALPHA TIMELINE EXISTING AND ALL.
CG: GOD EVEN NOW IT SEEMS LIKE WE’RE STILL TRAPPED IN THAT ENTROPIC GAME. SOMETIMES, I FEEL LIKE IT’S NOT OVER. THAT IT NEVER WAS OVER. THAT EVERYTHING IS JUST SOME BLOATED-OUT JOKE.
CG: HEY, YOU ASKED FOR VICTORY? YOU WISH TO LIVE FREELY, WITHOUT BEING BURDENED WITH THE CONSTANT FEAR OF BEING DRIVEN THROUGH A SKEWER, AND PARADED AROUND THE INCIPISPHERE AS YOUR CO-PLAYERS CAN ONLY GAZE HELPLESSLY AT YOUR MANGLED CORPSE?
CG: LAUGHABLE. THIS BULLSHIT WE CALL A ‘VICTORY’ IS ESSENTIALLY JUST A COSMIC ‘FUCK YOU’ HIDDEN BEHIND A FACADE OF HAPPY BRAINLESS CARAPACES AND OVERSIZED CAN ACCOMMODATIONS. BUT HEY, AT LEAST WE GET FANCY TIARAS!
CG: NOW, I COULD GO ON RAMBLING ABOUT THE PHILOSOPHICAL IMPLICATIONS OF THIS GAME, ALLOWING FOR MY LIPS TO RIVAL THE SPEWING VELOCITY OF THE SHIT CANNON BELONGING TO AN UNFORTUNATE SOUL WITH CHRONIC DIARRHEA, BUT I’M NOT GOING TO.
CG: THAT ISN’T WHY I’M HERE.
CG: YOU KNOW, AS MUCH AS IT DRIVES THE ACIDIC CONTENTS WITHIN THE FATHOMLESS DEPTHS OF MY STOMACH TO DANCE SPASTICALLY, THE BRAIN-NUMBING CONCEPT OF THE HEMOSPECTRUM DID HAVE ITS PERKS. IT SEPARATED US FROM ONE ANOTHER, FORCING US TO CONFIDE WITH MEMBERS OF OUR OWN BLOOD CASTE.
CG: IT MADE THINGS EASIER, IN A SICK, TWISTED SENSE.
CG: YEAH, I KNOW I’VE NEVER ACTUALLY HAD A CASTE TO BELONG TO. I DIDN’T HAVE ANY OF THAT, WHICH I GUESS IS WHY THINGS HAVE BEEN HARDER FOR ME. PRETTY MUCH EVERY ASPECT OF MY LIFE THAT MY THINKPAN CAN CONJURE HAS BEEN RIDDLED WITH HARDSHIP BECAUSE OF MY UNINTENTIONAL NON-CONFORMITY TO ALTERNIA’S BACKWARD-ASS CASTE SYSTEM.
CG: Â I BET PARADOX SPACE IS LAUGHING ITS INSUFFERABLE ASS OFF, AS IF IT’S SAYING, THROUGH GIGGLES, “HEY, LET’S SCREW AROUND WITH THIS DUMB BASTARD FOR A BIT. CAN’T GIVE HIM A CHANCE TO WIND DOWN, NOW CAN WE?”
CG: FUCK, ENOUGH OF THIS SELF-DEPRECATING SHIT! LOOK, WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IS THAT DEATHS WERE EASIER TO HANDLE. PEOPLE THAT YOU ASSOCIATED YOURSELF WITH LIVED FOR ABOUT AS LONG AS YOU DID, WHICH WAS ALMOST GUARANTEED WHEN YOU AND YOUR ASSOCIATES SHARE THE SAME BLOOD COLOUR.
CG: THAT… ISN’T INCLUDING MY SPECIES’ UNHEALTHY OBSESSION WITH CULLING PRETTY MUCH ANYONE FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER.
CG: THE POINT THAT I AM SO UNGRACEFULLY ATTEMPTING TO UNRAVEL IS THAT… WELL, I AM NOT A GOD.
CG: YOU ARE, BUT I’M NOT.
CG: YOU PROBABLY THOUGHT ABOUT IT TOO. I DON’T WANT TO ADMIT IT, BUT SOON ENOUGH I’LL BE GONE. JUST A MEANINGLESS BLIP IN YOUR RADAR (DID YOU GUYS EVEN HAVE RADARS? I STILL CANNOT GRASP HOW UNFATHOMABLY PRIMITIVE YOUR HUMAN TECHNOLOGY WAS).
CG: ANYWAY, IT HADN’T REALLY OCCURRED TO ME HOW MUCH I FEAR DEATH. THE IDEA OF IT NEVER REALLY CAME TO MIND. I GUESS HAVING BEEN BROUGHT UP IN A CULTURE THAT THRIVES ON VIOLENCE AND DOMINANCE KIND OF NUMBED ME TO THE CONCEPT.
CG: I’M SCARED, DAVE. I KNOW IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN FOR A WHILE. BUT FOR YOU, AN IMMORTAL TIME LORD, IT’LL BE SOON. YOU’LL GET A CHANCE TO BE A HERO, THOUGH ADMITTEDLY YOU ALREADY ARE. YOU’LL GET ALL THE TIME TO CHANGE YOURSELF, AND BECOME A BETTER VERSION OF YOURSELF. AS YOU WOULD SO ELOQUENTLY MENTION EVERY SINGLE TIME WE’D BURN OUR VISION SOCKETS WITH ROM-COMS (WHICH FOR YOUR INFORMATION IS THE GREATEST MOVIE GENRE TO EVER EXIST. I KNOW YOU LIKE THEM. I KNOW YOU DO. I’M ONTO YOU, STRIDER). FUCK, AS I WAS SAYING, YOU WOULD SAY “karkat that is so goddamn corny,” AS YOU INSULT THE MASTERPIECE THAT IS EVERY DANE COOK MOVIE EVER.
CG: AND YES, AS ‘CORNY’ AS IT IS, YOU HAVE TIME TO PUPATE INTO A BETTER YOU. YOU GET THE CHANCE TO REDEEM YOURSELF. YOU ARE MY HERO, AND YOU CAN GIVE YOURSELF THE CHANCE TO BE SOMEONE ELSE’S HERO.
CG: LOOK, I HAVEN’T DONE ANYTHING REMARKABLE IN THE TIME THAT I’VE LIVED. THERE ARE MANY THINGS I REGRET. MANY THINGS I WISH I COULD HAVE DONE - AND NOT DONE. LIKE HOW I KEEP FINDING MYSELF RUNNING ASS-BACKWARDS INTO SOMETHING WITH A GREATER PROBABILITY OF ENDANGERING EVERYONE I CARE ABOUT THAN NOT. BUT THERE’S NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT NOW.
CG: FUCK, I’M WASTING MY TIME. OKAY, HERE IT IS:
CG: DAVE, I LOVE YOU, AND I REGRET NOT HAVING TOLD YOU SOONER.
got it from this but i feel like suga’s more likely to do this than daichi actually he has a potato shirt and likes puns pLEASE don’t tell me he’ll let the opportunity to do this pass bcos hE WILL DO IT no matter the cost #REST IN PIECES DAICHI
if you guys haven’t noticed by now, i have been much less active these past few months on this account. The primary reason is because I have been extremely busy and absolutely EVERYTHING that could be a stressor has been one. I thought I had a queue running but I guess I was gone for long so it ran out.
Another issue that has arisen is simple. I am not as big of a GOT7 stan now then I was a while ago. This is going to cause some controversy but I think a combination of their problematic actions and just me simply having been a bigger stan of other groups this whole time has been a factor.
This account is about to hit 27,000 followers. 27,000. That is an absolutely insane number. I cannot thank you guys enough for following this silly blog even after all my bullshit and failure to interact and be active.
I’m not saying I’m deleting the account or leaving, I’m just saying there’s many things I need to think about moving foreword in regards to this account’s longevity. I need time to think.
In the meantime, I apologize. Thank you for putting up with me.
