Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect seriesThis is something I felt compelled to write;Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect series2 years ago in Personal More Like This
both as a gamer and the influences that helped shape me as a developer.
Almost a year from when I touched my last save file, I finally "finished" the Mass Effect series. I played all the DLC and I beat the game, one last time. It was a somber ending, because it put a final end to a character I have played since 2007. I have games that I love, games stretching back to my childhood, and games that I would consider myself to be a huge fan of. I can count on one hand though (and not using all my fingers), franchises that have sucked me in and crafted characters that made me care about them in such a way, that turns this 6'5 developer into your everyday excitable fan (not Justin Beiber level though, that'd be just plain crazy). The Mass Effect series is one of those few titles.
I have looked up to Bioware for many years. Combined with my love for Point & Click advent
Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod...Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet again the Mass Effect Fandom proved that it will not leave the ending in the state it was presented in the game. A certain (fan!) mod was created (and is right now in the testing phase) a Happy Ending Mod for ME3. We can destroy the Reapers, Shepard lives (EDI and Geth too) and most importantly of all we don't have to worry about the Star Child.
Instruction how to install it and the mod itself can be found here:
You can also check how the mod works here on youtube:

Last year I visited a craft fair and discovered in the paper decoration / paper crafting a super great new material.
Maybe some of you know it.
But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.
It can be used for paper decoration, for gemstones, paint and much more.

The Unexpected Love ContestHas someone special that you love surprised, delighted, or changed your life in an unexpected, but joyful way? I want to hear your stories.The Unexpected Love Contest2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
One of the best things about finding new love is the excitement and anticipation of the unknown. All of us at one time have felt that exhilarating feeling of unforeseen passion. I want for you to express to me in a poem or short story this unexpected feeling, and what it ultimately means to you. Be as vividly original as you can to make your deviation stand out, but do keep our key elements of what you feel the aspects of “unexpected love” entails as your primary motivation while writing.

Design an Outfit! Contest
Someone once said there was a huge wardrobe in Fenrir's Tower. Much bigger than any ever imagined, with many different- and sometimes eccentric- clothes for men, women, children. There was no purpose in having all those clothes, if not for satisfying his obsession of collecting things.
This contest is about designing a new outfit for my character, Lilith, and Fenrir--the-2nd's character Fenrir! Read about them in these refs and pull out of that huge wardrobe their new clothes!

Alright. I'm finally back, with some news.Happy New Year!Alright. I'm finally back, with some news.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I took care of buisness, did what I had to do, and now i am return. It's been so long that I don't even know if I can draw anymore. For the last few months i've been deeply involved in the gamergate scandal/movement/internet war thing. Yes, it's still going on 5 months later, which may as well be centuries in internet time. It's been exhausting and pointless. The whole thing is more or less about SJWs fighting against people who want better "ethics in gaming journalism". In other words, something stupid. I don't even play video games.
I quit a few days ago when I realized what a massive waste of time it'd been. This last week was spent tying up loose ends, saying goodbyes and burning bridges. I spent three months trying to get them to actually do something that mattered, but the entire movement completely collapsed in on itself and turned into an even less effective version of Occupy Wall Street.

Interview With Your New Lit CVsSeems we've started a bit of a tradition that when new Lit CVs join the team, we throw all kinds of questions at them so that YOU can get to know them a bit better. For those of you that haven't been paying attention, we welcomed IrrevocableFate and ShadowedAcolyte to the Literature CV team about two weeks ago. Of course, we promptly bombarded them with questions and hopefully YOU'VE bombarded them with Daily Deviation Suggestions. If not, be sure to check out their guidelines here and here. But before you do that, why not learn a little more about your new Literature Community Volunteers.Interview With Your New Lit CVs1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This

Do you remember E3 2014? No? Was it due to the fact that they didn't show practically anything? Do you want to see some gameplay? Do you want to see the new protagonist?! DO YOU WANT TO HEAR DETAILS ABOUT THE NEW ROMANCE INTERESTS?!!!
Because it didn't have any of that. Mass Effect 4 is still "years out" according to sources.
But I do have four words for you:
The mako is back. Yep! That tough-as-nails, lumbering bear of a land rover will be dropping onto virgin soil once more! You know you secretly loved it.
Oh, and before you continue reading, go fill out this survey for the fine folks at Bioware...:

Another Letter to Sue Author (warning anger ahead)Why the hell would you send your white knights to my Twitter out of all places? And they didn't have the balls to leave this shit on dA either! Why the hell are you sending them to my Twitter? You're telling people who I am, while I'm leaving you nameless. I have been hella considerate to you because I honestly don't want to see you attacked.

You sent a white knight after my friend in a journal that didn't even fucking concern you. IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU! SHE WAS JUST TALKING ABOUT CRITIQUE, GET THE FUCK OVER YOURSELF! Don't you dare send your fucking white knights after my friends. You send them at me, this is between you and me. You're just begging for a rant at this point, begging for a reason to "baww" and "pity me this and pity me that."
You could have just asked. But no you had to piss me off by sending your white knights to attack my friend. You're a coward, and you disgust me. Stay the fuck away from my frie

Both are true. Lately, i've fallen in love with this show called "Battle for dream island" Seriously. Watch it. It's a short series on Youtube that's a lot like Total drama island- except, replace all the characters with talking objects and you've got the idea. I literally went on a archive binge yesterday, it is so amazing. Anywhay, I came across this video while I was snooping around Jacknjellify's youtube:
My mouth literally dropped. This guy, this guy right here- he did it. He accomplished what I always wanted to do (make a cartoon series), and even became famous!!
And you know why?
He didn't give up.
Back around the same time this came out, I also had a little comic book series. Okay, not little- I'd finished writing and drawing 26 episodes
Dear Butthurt Sue Author,I'm writing to a certain person who's still going on about drama that I thought had ended weeks ago. Why are you still begging for pity and talking shit on Twitter?Dear Butthurt Sue Author,1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Don't think anything gets passed me, boo boo. She's still talkin' shit, she might be stalking my dA or some shit. So I'm calling her out, but I ain't gonna say names. Just, if you're gonna talk shit, do it to my face. I gave you the same courtesy. So grow some balls and talk about me and my bitchiness to my face. Because I'm waiting for something to happen, then I'm going to do my longest rant on your ass. Shut the fuck up about me, or talk about me to my face. Woman up and get over old drama.
You can further more go fuck yourself, but hell you got a new Twitter follower outta this.
