31 Days of Halloween Art Challenge / Oct 20 & 21 / Monster & Curse: Combined these two days as I need tomorrow to fail some more at job hunting get some non-internet stuff done. Ahem. But for now, enjoy more Storytime with Varric!

Dear Jennifer Hepler

immortalbears:

brentlemen:

I would like to say, on behalf of every single decent human being who is still left amongst the noise, anger, and bigotry of Bioware’s fanbase - I am sorry.

I am sorry that you ever had to go through the worst of people because you just wanted to write for Bioware. I’m sorry that this disgusting display has driven you from Bioware, and I hope that above all this does not damage your faith in humanity.

I hope that you go on to all that you deserve and hope for.

Dear Ms Hepler:

Well. Sorry does not even begin to cover it. I’ve only recently gotten into select video game titles because of the innovative storytelling and the unconventional characters. DA2 incorporated both to a large extent.

I’m not going to mince words: I am angry. My blood is boiling. There are a lot more I want to say about this, but I won’t.

It’s just such a pity that these pedantic fools have gotten what they want. It is against everything I would have hoped for.

I hope that these people learn their follies and stick their heads out of their arses, because I bet years of doing that has got to be hell for their spines.

Sincerely,

A queer… person who happens to play a couple of games because they’re actually worth playing, and you’ve helped to make one of them. THANK YOU.

Are you a fellow sufferer, stormdragon?

Well, maybe… alright. Yes, I admit it. I might have a tiny obsession. Tiny is grave understatement. I am in need of that support group.

Someone should donate. We need a rehab center.

…Actually that’s an aweful idea.

A separate building for us to live for weeks, out only comfort being our collective love for Anders?

We would never get clean.

Actually considering that this is how Catharine and I already live at school…

Our tears will comfort us. Or we could try cold turkey. I’d fail badly at cold turkey.

QUALITEA GIVEAWAY POST!

so it will be one year of spicyshimmying on tumblr come the 29th, when the original and very kind spicyshimmy gave me the url for my birthday! i am forever in their debt—and yours, chumblrs old and new, because of how much you’ve taught me and shown me and given me. my head would be a melty pile of cheese even alistair wouldn’t eat if it weren’t for you guys, and i likely would never have had the courage to get through much of the past year of tumblring.

sadly, there’s no way a tragically shaky-handed person like me could do an art giveaway, but i’ve always wanted to do a giveaway of some kind, without having anything to give. but at last, this has changed! i ordered one of each of the adagio bioware teas that urdnotkassa and i have made so far: blondtea for anders and turn and face the tiger eye for fenris from dragon age 2, and calibration break for garrus vakarian and integritea for kaidan alenko from mass effect! four winners will be chosen, one for each tea, in a random drawing on wednesday, august 29th! the winners will also be given the option of requesting a fic of any pairing to be sent along with the tea, or an in character letter from/to a character of their choosing!

the rules are as follows:

  1. like or reblog or both to enter;
  2. you can reblog as many times as you like! each reblog will count as one entry, so multiple reblogs count for multiple chances to win;
  3. although it’s probably best to space the reblogs out but you do what you want it’s your blog and don’t let anybody stop you, especially when it comes to plastering garrus’s perfect face all over your dash;
  4. this is to appreciate followers (old and new!) so it will be restricted to followers only (SOBS i’m sorry);
  5. i will likely be a big loser and throw in some extra writing-related prizes for more people when i’m doing the drawing if anyone is interested in that;
  6. you may enter whether you live in the united states or outside the states, but i apologize in advance if it takes forever for the teas to make it to you if you live outside the us!
  7. send any questions you might have here;
  8. and i’m sorry if tumblr eats the ask because my inbox is kind of cursed.

SO that’s it i think! hopefully i’ve not forgotten anything! thank you guys so much for following and again, the drawing will take place on wednesday, august 29th, let’s say at 5pm est! good luck! thank you all for being so qualitea! 

:D

Why I feel uneasy about Bioware changing its ending

reanimatrix:

I may be expressing an unpopular opinion here— I like ME but it’s not my favorite thing in the world like KOTOR or DA, take it with a grain of salt, I’m removed from things. PLEASE do not take anything of what I say below as an insult, I will try my very best to word myself politely and be nice and not combatitive.

I do not think that ME3 should get a completely new ending.

Reblog if you think Jennifer Hepler is a talented game writer.

blondielovesbroody:

Since a whole ton of people seem to think her writing ability should determine how she’s treated as a human being. I think she’s great at what she does and I support her and her work.  I think Bioware would be much worse off without her talent and I look forward to seeing what she has in store in future games. -blondie

There’s only 1 review so far giving her Anders short story one star. ONE measly fucking star. (I bet it was Meredith.)

This cannot stand, Dragon Age fans. We have to do something. Do it to spite the trolls. Do it to show your support for her. Do it for Anders.
