Nerdy Pumpkin Time
So, a few years back I decided to carve a fandom pumpkin, based on the logo for Valkyrie Profile (it’s a poor quality image, but the only one I can find of it at the moment).
Later on, I carved one for .hack//G.U. of Skeith.
I also carved one featuring Velvet and Ingway from Odin Sphere, but can’t find any pictures of that now, and it didn’t turn out too great, anyway. So, this year I have a fresh pumpkin and am wondering what to put on it!
The games I’ve played most this year were Final Fantasy XIII and XIV, but their logos don’t lend themselves easily to carving. I’ve also been enjoying Flight Rising, so maybe a dragon silhouette? An Imperial might look pretty good.
Here, have some pointless OTP art as proof I am still alive.
reblog if you want in on the elk/endrance defense squad
As far as I’m concerned I have been on this for years already!
Not that it’s as necessary nowadays, since most of the people I’ve seen bashing him were a) casual fans of the games who haven’t stuck around, or b) hardcore shippers who wanted Haseo with somebody else, and felt a compulsion to strike down all rivals especially the male ones because omg how dare you suggest that Haseo is not 1000% straight even though canon supports that how daaaare you. And uh. That’s stupid on a level I can’t even engage with.
So today on Flight Rising I did a thing.
And by ‘today’ I mean it’s actually taken months to get a dragon with this combination of breed/colours/genes/flight element. I regret nothing.
I read Veritas/Victorious on AO3 & am thrilled to see you have a tumblr. Replaying G.U made me remember how much I loved Endrance/Haseo & it's so nice to see there are still active fans (especially writers that handle the characters so well)
I’m glad you enjoyed my fics! Haven’t been as active as I’d like to lately, since I’ve been busy getting my final college assignments in, but now that’s done I should be able to post things here more often. So yes hello, thank you for messaging me, sorry about the lateness of the reply o/;;
Just a matter of hours now until I finally get my own Flight Rising account! I did actually know about it during its last registration window, but hesitated over making an account, because I didn’t realise that once the window closed it’d stay that way for six months.
Totally gonna make fandom-themed dragons, even if at least two people into .hack//G.U. have beat me to that already.
Is there a non-awkward way to say ‘hey, did tumblr eat the asks I sent, or are you ignoring me?’
Nope okay then just checking never mind.
In the end I deleted my art and writing because nobody really cared or appreciated it.
I was never recommended by anyone, I was just there, and not any good.
Meanwhile, Ely’s work was practically worshipped and when I was compared to her I wanted to disappear. I know I’m nothing special, I’m not even decent, but I really wanted to be.
I mean, my work meant so much to me and it never meant a damn thing to anyone else. I hate that feeling.
I cared and appreciated it greatly. You know I did. I always praised your art, and when you posted new chapters of a fic I’d get so excited, no matter how long it had been between updates. The only reason I’m not more upset about you deleting things is because I have everything you’ve done saved on a memory stick, so I still get to see it whenever I want.
I really don’t feel ‘practically worshipped’, but I’ve said before that the only reason people have paid more attention to my fics than yours is because I posted on Fanfiction.net, which gets more exposure than LiveJournal. That’s all. You’re talented and smart, full of interesting and sweet ideas and your characterisation is spot-on. You are my favourite person in this fandom, and you will always be special to me.
I kind of wish I’d participated in a fandom holiday exchange this year. But while there’s plenty of fandoms I like seeing art for, when it comes to fic I’m only seriously interested in .hack//G.U. (which is not something that crops up a lot in multifandom exchanges, even ones like Yuletide that are made for more obscure things)
And even if there were such a thing as a .hack-only exchange, I’m only seriously interested in Haseo and Endrance.
And even if there were such a thing as a Hase/Endrance-only exchange, I’d be afraid of getting matched with someone who thrives on dark and ~edgy~ topics (which I cannot stand).
So basically, the reason I can’t have nice things at Christmas is because I’m too picky. Sad times.
THIS IS NOT A HASEO COSTUME
YOU’RE JUST NOT IMAGINING HARD ENOUGH
Shino is the mother who was killed by titans right in front of him, creating an obsession with vengeance. Ovan is the father who entrusted him with a ~mysterious key~ and then disappeared. It could totally work.
