Confession: I sorta feel like an old man now that KOTOR is playable on mobile now

On the other hand, I feel like I live in *~the future~* cos I can play it on the tram on an impossibly thin computer the size of a sheet of paper so

Wow.

On Writing: Hiding Magic

readingwithavengeance:

Hey there, paranormal and urban fantasy.  Why are you hiding?

No, really, why are you hiding?  I rarely see this question developed in any serious way, but I quite often see it get skipped over entirely.  I have, on many occasions, read books that merely said “I can’t tell anyone” and left the matter at that.

Too often the answer is one of mere genre convention.  The characters in this book can’t tell because the characters other books haven’t told, so that’s simply the standard. But it so rarely makes sense.

  • In the TMI books, why can’t the Shadowhunters come out of hiding?
  • In Amanda Hocking’s Lullaby series, why can’t Gemma tell her family she’s a mermaid?
  • In The Darkest Powers, why can Chloe not tell people she talks to ghosts?
  • In Percy Jackson, why do the gods stay in hiding?
  • In the Iron Fey, why are the fairies not frolicking around in front of everyone?

The most common excuse tends to be “no one would believe us,” but I would like to stand up right now and call bullshit.

HISTORY

holy shit!

can someone explain this to me

Thirty years ago a legendary ET game came to fruition, so awful that as the tale told, all unsold copies of it were buried in a pit in New Mexico. A documentary film crew has just unearthed the stash, proving the legend true.

OMG Rofl! I remember this game! The badness…it’s like suddenly remembering you’re the victim of an alien abduction. AND ALL THAT THAT IMPLIES.

Let’s face it, eating well is expensive… or it can be. Buying produce that is either organically (or biodynamically grown) is not cheap. But ingesting pesticide residue is anything but ideal.

Luckily, you can shave a few bucks off your grocery bill by growing a few of those staples from your diet. Best part, it is much easier than you think! You don’t need seeds or anything fancy. You can simply use kitchen scraps from your next meal. How great is that!

“galagraphia: alyonam: galagraphia: Canon: Revan was a man who screwed Bastila and left her with a baby. Then he went to some evil place, and shit happened.
Headcanon: Revan was a badass lady, who went to some evil place, kicked the Ultimate Evil’s ass, then returned to her Carth and married him. The Exile didn’t marry Atton, but they lived in sin happily ever after. The End. <3 Yup. What Gala said.
Although I prefer the Malak x Fem!Revan thingie :p Damn, Malak was hot when he still had his jaw. I totally had a thing for him. It was so difficult to just stay there and watch him dying in the end. BioWare and their hot men… There is no KotOR game canon for Revan in my opinion. There is SW:EU canon, comics canon and SW:TOR canon, but the only way you can tear my female Revan away from me in KotOR is to go back in a time machine and make playing her impossible.
And I’d be there waiting to shank you, so don’t try it.”

I love this

"you come here often?" "DWARVEN CRAAAFTS"

"hey baby did it hurt when you fell from heaven-"
"FAVOR THE BOW, EH? I’M A SWORD MAN MYSELF"

"hey let me buy you a drin-"
"LET ME GUESS: SOMEONE STOLE YOUR SWEET ROLL?"

"hey gorgeous-"
"I LIKE SHORTS! THEY’RE COMFY AND EASY TO WEAR!"

"hey beauti-""SOMETIMES, I DREAM ABOUT CHEESE"

”are you an angel becau-”
”Talos the Mighty! Talos the unerring! Talos the unassailable! To you we give Praise! We are but maggots writhing in the filth of our own corruption! While you have ascended from the dung of mortality, and now walk among the stars! But you were once man! Aye! And as man you said, “Let me show you the power of Talos Stormcrown, born of the North, where my breath is long winter. I breathe now in royalty and reshape this land which is mine. I do this for you, Red Legions, for I love you.”  Aye, love! Love! Even as man, great Talos cherished us. For he saw in us, in each of us, the future of Skyrim! The future of Tamriel! And there it is, friends! The ugly truth! We are the children of man! Talos is the true god of man! Ascended from flesh, to rule the realm of spirit! The very idea is inconceivable to our Elven overlords! Sharing the heavens with us? With man? Ha! They can barely tolerate our presence on earth! Today, they take away your faith. But what of tomorrow? What then? Do the elves take your homes? Your businesses? Your children? Your very lives? And what does the Empire do? Nothing! Nay, worse than nothing! The Imperial machine enforces the will of the Thalmor! Against its own people! So rise up! Rise up, children of the Empire! Rise up, Stormcloaks! Embrace the word of mighty Talos, he who is both man and Divine! For we are the children of man! And we shall inherit the heavens and earth! And we, not the Elves or their toadies, will rule Skyrim! Forever!”

“Hey I’m looking for treasure, Can I look around your chest?”
"I’ll bet ye’ve got all sorts o’ barmy questions!”  *mimics your stance* “Greetin’s, I have some questions… can ye tell me about this place? Who’s the Lady o’ Pain? I’m lookin’ fer the magic Girdle of Swank Iron, have ye seen it? Do ye know where a portal ta the 2,817th Plane o’ the Abyss might be? Do ye know where the Holy Flamin’ Frost-Brand Gronk-Slayin’ Vorpal Hammer o’ Woundin’ an’ Returnin’ an’ Shootin’-Lightnin’-Out-Yer-Bum is?”

"I used to date adventurers like you. Then I took an arrow to the knee&#8230;"
