Oh, what a cool bunch of—

Hmmm…

I hate TV Tropes.

hello fellow INFP

….hey!

yeah, okay

Okay. ENFP…

Thanks… I think.

Hmm. Yes, this is cool.

Alright, I’m liking this.

Awesome.

FUCK.

I have met some of the most amazing women I have ever known through the game industry. Larger-than-life, funny, warm, sweet, razor-sharp, overeducated women, the kind who laugh too loudly in quiet rooms. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard most of them laugh. One of them IMed me today about how she was leaving the industry and she couldn’t handle the idea of disappointing me but she just couldn’t take it any more, and I told her it was okay, it’s fine, self-care is so important, because it is.

The truth is that after our conversation ended, I put my head in my hands and cried.

I could tell you stories about the voices we’ve lost, the women we’ve scarred, the people we’ve left behind. I want to, but I’m not sure you’d get it. I tweeted earlier today, We should have a war memorial for all of the women we have lost to this. We should lay flowers and grieve and see our reflections in stone. And I meant it. I wish there were a way to honor the people our industry has wronged, and a way to visualize the enormity of what we have lost because of it— some representation of the gap between what games are and what they can be, and the pieces of the bridge between that have fallen away.

Elizabeth Sampat writes on women in the games industry, spinning off Zoe Quinn’s situation. Read the whole thing. It’s a shotgun blast of a piece. The last line of the whole thing is my takeaway from the last few weeks. (via kierongillen)

Oh, right. I said I’d throw this up. That was like a month ago?

My hate for Keran’s hair prompted these slight redesigns, but Vedrana’s somehow ended up being a bigger change. Oh well. Anyways, the top is the first ever drawing of Keran, which is also the first ever drawing for Experience Boost. Then her old/first banner image (I’ve now replaced all the banners on the site as well), some sketches for the new hair, the turnaround for the new hair, and the new/improved hair from a comic.

I was originally going to introduce the new hairs with a couple of strips where Keran learns about in-game barbershops, but I couldn’t find a good joke to justify it. Really just glad to be rid of that triangle wig she was wearing.

These are so cool

so I just got World of Thedas and I’m dying because all the months have these cool names but then August is just “August”

Point of trivia: The list of months in the WoT was lifted from a really old document that Ben Gelinas found in our online wiki. How old? Well, this dated back to an early time when Andraste was named “Augusta”. I don’t recall why we changed her name, but the month was essentially named after her… and now isn’t.

Seeing as Ronan is played by Lee Pace, I couldn’t help but picture this while watching Guardians, and then I couldn’t help but draw it.
It’s actually the Party Stone.
"XANDAR. YOUR PLANET… IS LAME."

like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this

there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place

that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.

but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.

i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.

it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.

and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”

no, it’s not

it’s childish.

it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.
