Video games, especially made by Obsidian Entertainment and everything I can find with Planescape: Torment, some TV shows, Pacific Rim, social and psychological issues, mythology, literature, things I find funny, brilliant or beautiful.
Feel free to talk.

I’m reading a “writing tips” article and it’s pretty duh until they go “Is your character boring? Add an obsession!”

Obsessions are great because they’re simple to drop into a character’s personality, and you can use them repeatedly to spice up your plot.

Think what you can do! Give a ghetto hooker a fixation on growing the perfect eggplant in her window box, turn the commander of a space station into an incurable pack rat, bestow upon your straight-A prom queen a fascination with arson, twist a fat, old cop into a joyful, compulsive transvestite.

"he put exclamation mark in the end of every sentence. Every. He said it showed the strength of his spirit" I chuckled out loud reading this XD oh poor you,now it just seems surreal, but I can imagine how frustrating and unnerving could be!

I know right?! At first I *hoped* he was trolling! But NOPE.

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture. 

So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.

Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome. 

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

TWO WEEKS? Baby, you have the patience of a saint. Nobody deserves to suffer this much.

I was about to give up on DMing completely -___-

I would ditch them probably through half the session even back when I was 12.

I have this weird honor thingy that if I agreed to the terms at the start of something, I have to go on if the other side doesn’t break the arrangements:( Now I just say know when to say no right away

Sounds epic haha. Poor 16 year-old you! Made similar experiences with people who were way into elves

well “experience” is not gonna cover 2 freaking weeks of painfully trying to run a good game despite the snobby bastards >.< After that I was basically hissing and spewing at the mere mention of elves -__-

Important to know. Honestly sometimes I look at the “cute” photos of animals in distress circling the internet and I get so angry over the ignorance.

I should make one of these for reptiles, but there’s so many to cover…

my harry potter OC is called deadlift powercrunch, the most muscular wizard of all time

wizards rarely use physical power to accomplish anything, so the most muscular, is propably not that muscular when compared to muggles

deadlift powercrunch uses her physical power above magic, she does not care about spells and only uses them to create gym equipment from thin air in a pinch and also to give her gatling gun arm infinite bullets.

"…you find reasons to keep living.”

So, I’d just like to say I am happy to be here with my family. My super weird family with two black dads, and two Latina daughters, and two white sons, and… Gina. And I don’t know what you (Scully) are. Some strange giant baby? To the Nine Nine!

Okay, so my elf-hate originated at the times when Tolkien fandom (at least where I lived) was full of goddamn snobs, everyone was beautiful  exquisite perfect elf and took Silmarillion seriously as a Bible, and if you dared to crack a joke about it, you were just lowly ignorant human peasant. So I wasn’t all that thrilled with elves to begin with (I kinda thought they are pretentious, self-centered and too boringly flawless bunch), but then there was a finishing blow.

First of all, this is first time I’m DMing a DnD campaign. And I didn’t closely know any of the players, because it was actually not my city and they just mostly random people interested in DnD. So I’m really freaking nervous, I take it very seriously, I draw maps, write backstories for every little NPC, and I’m being extremely nice to players and basically taking any bullshit from them, because I’m 16 and trying to impress strangers.

So there’s a guy and girl, both around my age.The girl is “reincarnation of Nienna”. For people not familiar with Silmarillion, her deal is that she’s a goddess who cries a lot and sings sad songs. And this girl did exactly these things. No, you don’t understand guys. You give her a puzzle and NPC hanging around, ready to give her hints, and she doesn’t bother even trying to do anything. She just sits down on her ass and cries. You give her a confrontation with a villain, she fucking sings at him. Because apparently that singing duel between Sauron and that elf dude was just the coolest thing ever. And no, she doesn’t just say “My character sings a song”, she sings it *herself*. I kid you not! She remembers all the damn songs from Silmarillion and LotR, fucking all of them. And she’s not a bard! She’s supposedly a wizard! All of her singing doesn’t do shit in terms of game mechanics, it’s just “Five minutes of awkwardness for whole group”.

You think that’s bad? Meet the elf-dude. He’s an elven prince, who also was some sort of bigwig in Silmarillion, and is dual-wielding scimitars Drizzt Do’Urden style. No, you don’t get it. He sends me a character sheet, he’s a ranger or whatever with Dual-wielding perk, so I’m like “okay”. And then in IM he writes me “and this is how I fight!” (btw he put exclamation mark in the end of every sentence. Every. He said it showed the strength of his spirit ) and sends two A4 pages, collecting shit ripped straight out of damn Salvatore books. 2 pages! And since I don’t know how to deal with Marti Sue players yet, I actually agree to this damn thing!

But the guy didn’t stop there, oh no. There’s another big thing to know about him.  He’s an elven prince who’s secretly Drizzt Do’Urden and who was a Jedi in past life. And not just some random Jedi. Darth Revan. Yep, from KotOR 1.

He never says “Jedi” or “Sith” out-loud, but he throws “Force”, “padawan”, “my beloved Bastila” and all the Dark and Light bullshit around all the fucking time. He’s also *stoked* that I played KotOR, because I’m the only one in the group who even knows who the fuck Revan is. So imagine, there’s some plot-important conversation is going on and suddenly this elf guy starts ranting about the poison of the Dark Side, and how anger leads to hate, and everyone should listen to the Force. “Ten minutes of awkwardness for whole group”. Also how am I supposed to make NPC answer to this?

Sometimes they sang in a duet. He didn’t know all the songs, but just enough to drive me up to the ceiling.

So what I learned after whole experience: 1. Elves are the worst. And they sing all the time. 2.Players are the enemy. Don’t take even slightest bullshit from them, or they’ll dump a whole pile of it on you.
