I’ll be critical of FO4 here for a minute and then go on to enjoying it for what it is but: I think Shaun and how you react to him should have been a much bigger and a much more nuanced issue than it is in the game. Finding Shaun is used as your motivation throughout the game, but when you find him and the Big Twist is revealed, you… are not really left with diverse ways to react to it, or him. By all accounts it SHOULD mean so much more in the narrative of the game and force you to think, and you should be able to talk about it with the various people around you, but mostly you just get silence or very shallow mentions about what SHOULD be a big thematic discussion full of questions and issues and emotions. I swear there are side-quests that have more depth in this game than YOU FINDING YOUR SON and finding out that he’s not what you expected or maybe wanted him to be.
On the one hand I’m glad because the open-endedness gives more freedom to headcanon, but on the OTHER hand I feel robbed out of a satisfying, interesting and nuanced conclusion to the whole Shaun storyline.
I came home from school early. I wasn’t feeling too good and I hadn’t been sleeping.
I let my body fall onto my bed but my mind wouldn’t shut down. I felt my phone buzz. Kali. I sighed and opened it.
I tossed my phone to the side. I remember texting Nia so much. I was glad we weren’t in school in the beginning of our relationship or else I would’ve gotten into way more trouble.
After we hung out at my house that first time in the summer she continued texting me for a whole week. We flirted a lot but she kept going around my invitations to hang out again. Always an excuse. She was avoiding me and I didn’t understand why. I finally asked her to meet up at this park by my house. She agreed after a bit of finessing, which was incredibly difficult with her.
people keep complaining that Atomic Blonde and Proud Mary are the same movie like all the other assassin movies arn’t the same damn movie featuring tall bald man with either amnesia or english accent give me a fucking break
Roses are red, that much is true, but violets are purple, not fucking blue.
I have been waiting for this all my life
They are indeed purple,but one thing you've missed: the concept of "purple" didn't always exist. Some cultures lack names for a color, you see. Hence good old Homer, and his "wine-dark sea." A usage so quaint, a phrasing so old, for verses of romance is sheer fucking gold. So roses are red. Violets once were called blue. I'm hugely pedantic; but what else is new?
well okay or I could do this instead of starting actual work this morning- just an alternate take on the new Gladstone design! done kinda quick but I had fun (colours of last two are based off the old comics and the modern comics)
tried to smush the concepts from the other designs?
I think sometimes you can learn a lot about a person from their clothing choices, and I’ve always sorta wanted to make some fashion sets ^ ^ So I’m making one for the OC kids, starting with the eldest as usual, Yasha! (He’s probably pre-teen-ish around here, maybe, idk)
Yasha still more or less thinks of himself as a boy (when he can be bothered to think about it at all) but loves flowers, pastels, and anything soft and gentle (in harsh contrast to his blunt as a bludgeon personality). And most importantly, he kinda just really hates wearing pants and underwear, when he can get away with full nudity… He takes the young!Victor flower fairy aesthetic to the next level. He can be very picky about what he wears, and usually prefers expensive but relatively unknown specialty brands. His parents, especially Victor, are more than happy to indulge his tastes.
IF YOU ARE NEW TO THIS AU: It’s a Yuri!!! on Ice AU, Yuuri-centric with end-game polyamory in an ABO
setting, Yuuri gets married to four mates (Victor, Yurio, Phichit, Minami)
and they have OC kids.
