Patient + soft-spoken + father figure = Hot Dad in my book. Had Ducan lived to see better days, I expect the Warden would have enjoyed numerous one-on-one sessions (related to Grey Warden business, naturally) and friendly sparring matches, increasingly wrought with delicious sexual tension, until the fine night she finally manages to convince dad to bounce her on his lap. Verdict: DONE AND DONE
Duncan lap bouncing.
I’m almost done with Origins and so far nothing in that game have surpassed Duncan. I literally mewled when I saw him. <3

bwaha. I do the same, but I check for hits.
I am very sad.
With the right information you can make almost anything connect and probably make sense out of it or make it hard to question. I wrote an entire article on how Chrono Trigger was connected to Final Fantasy XII.
Did that make it true? Nah. But it was a damn good read.
Two of my favourite games. Is this available to read somewhere?
You are my hero. You just said EVERYTHING I feel about Tumblr. I came here for fandoms and camaraderie not to have a bunch of 12-23 year olds screaming about things they don’t have a true informed opinion of. Bonus points for ESL and FF XII
Sorry for long reply. I could go on forever about this. As a native English speaker it’s bad enough getting all of this in my own language. I can’t imagine having to deal with two.
Your second reply ate your first, but I saved what I could find in my activity log :) I think your first reply was a lot longer - Tumblr reallllyyy needs to fix that bug (that you can write longer replies on your phone but only the standard x characters are saved.) I just wanted to say thank you. It’s good to know people can relate. I think a lot of people do. Maybe we should just wait for the next big platform to show up. Like fandom dot com or something. I dunno. Tumblr is strange seeing as some of its most important functions are only available through an add-on (xkit).
Hey, if you ever come back, I’ll be here for you. <3
I feel bad for disappearing on you dude :( I read your stuff from time to time. Hope we can keep chatting in other media, you’ve been a bit away :(
What happened? I saw you were unactive, but I haven’ t understood why D:
Got fed up with Tumblr’s hostility towards anything major. AKA check your cis ableist religious atheist multicellular anti-fat allergy-free financial geographical you-ate-your-cereal-with-a-spoon-instead-of-a-fork privilege. I’m not denying these are real problems. Not by a long shot. But I think using Tumblr blogs is a horribly bad way to get your message across. Tumblr is getting a bad reputation because of this and it’s horrible to see important causes being swallowed in this implosion.
About a week later I realised that my problem with Tumblr also lies with how
some most people don’t intend to use Tumblr for communicating. It’s used for a) unfiltered reblogging (unfiltered in terms of quality control), b) pushing out an opinion and ignoring any comment, or c) pushing out an opinion and shaming anyone who dares to actually comment.
For me, this is extremely frustrating. I grew up with the Internet. I was alive for News groups. To me, the Internet has always been about communication, emailing people on the other side of the world, like pen pals used to be. Now it’s about Top Comments, Top Tweets, Top blah blah, people wanting to make themselves into miniature superheroes on their own special little hill. I’m too Scandinavian for that. Equality and everybody having a fair chance of being heard is too burned into my skull. My follower count has grown rapidly. I don’t care about that. I care about interacting.
And this is where it gets personal. Because over the last year, I’ve felt like I’ve had no voice IRL. Discussing Final Fantasy XII, writing meta, ESL, was a way for me to feel useful, to grow, to participate in something, to exchange ideas and opinions. The 20% who wanted to share, to interact, are awesomely wonderful people who (most of them anyway) I now have contact with through Skype, DreamWidth or email.
So it’s not just Tumblr. It’s me as well. I came to this place for fandom rants, to expand my circle of people to talk to on the Internet. Because another personal detail (wow oversharing much today) is that since moving to where I now live 6 years ago, I haven’t gained a single friend (that’s stuck). I have tried. I don’t know if it’s my age, the city, or my luck, but I’ve been lonely. I still am. Add to it that my boss have been criticising me for having nerdy activities as my main hobby - it’s a coping mechanism, you twat. I spent three years being friends with people I didn’t really have anything in common with. I realised it’s like being in a relationship with someone you don’t love. It’s pointless.
And so hanging around somewhere that feels like screaming in a tin can, instead of presenting interaction, telling me to pull my act together and check my privilege, feels kind of worthless to me. So I’ve decided to pull back to the part of Internet that’s structured for people to actually use their words - as part of a discussion, and not as broadcasting.
I might be back when/if I get xkit installed. People I trust say Tumblr is useless without xkit. It might be the filter I need to keep interacting with the people I want to interact with. But it all feels so pointless, like the Internet has reached a stage where it’s no longer about being friendly and open minded, it’s about blocking and filtering and doing extreme things for attention instead of using your voice - like real life has been for me lately, making me feel like that’s what the world is like, and that someone who doesn’t wield power will never have a say in anything.
Thank you to anyone who ever replied to me/asked/approached me in any way. It’s meant a great deal to me.
Using Tumblr sporadically for communicating. Which is what I intended to use this fucking web site for in the first place.
