Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful
without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?
DA2 whiting up?

DA2 Hawke

I'm avoiding as much as possible about DA2, as I prefer going into games knowing as little as possible.  I like to be surprised, but I am still mega curious.  So when someone mentioned something about more characters announced, I finally peeked at the DA2 official site this morning (not too many spoilers on there compared to forums etc.)

And I noticed something about Isabela...  Now, it's not like I particularly like or dislike this character as I don't know her well (she had - what?  four lines in the last game?), but one thing I did like about her in DA2 was that she had a lovely Rivaini skin tone - like DA:O's handsomest (imo) man, Duncan.

It's not often you see non-white people in games anyway, (I'm excluding badass huge black soldier trope from that, hopefully you understand why) never mind D&D type RPGs, so it was good to see her.

Anyway - one thing I noticed on the official site's page for Isabela was a desktop picture of her.  Except - there's something wrong with it,,,

I try not to be too grumpy about this sort of thing, I really do, as I know it's the chip on my shoulder... but seriously - what the fuck Bioware, what the fuckity fuck?

Well I totally agree with curves, so keep that mission going :)

Oh he's a good artist, he's just very, very sexist and seems to have no idea how sexist he's being. *Shrug* I leave alone & it's all good. Back to not everyone gets on with each other.

I quite enjoyed Game of Thrones (well I read the first two) for the politics, but I did skim read it (ie miss the long, boring exposition bits) and it isn't the best literary writing, so I understand you.

Ahh my Shep has a reunion (in my head) post suicide mission which patches things up. But different Sheps have different relationships - that's why I love it. It's like 90% of fandom assumes Garrus and his father hate each other and I think we're two of the few who don't.

On my huge list of things I mean to do but never actually do is a blog about shopping for the hourglass figure. People think it's so easy. Isn't clothing designed for that? Nope. It's designed to give women the appearance of an hourglass figure. If you actually have one, you're screwed. One day.

Ugh, stupid fandoms. Why can't people be bright and friendly and not morons? :/

Argh, I swear, I've tried reading it five times now and each time I get midway and give up and start skipping entire chapters because they're so freaking boring. Almost all my friends are infatuated with it and I just don't see how glorious it is. Not a rant on them, just that I wish I liked the series!

I saw the fic written for you prompted for that idea! It was lovely. :) I guess I go against some of the norms (there's a shock!) Also, really, for all the strife I have with my parents, Garrus sounded far more like he was rebelling against his dad than his dad was some sort of evil tyrant who would disown him or worse. I think a lot of the fandom takes one or two lines from each character and makes them extremes. Like does poor Kaidan really have a migraine every single freaking day? He wouldn't be able to function, much less be an active duty soldier! Stuff like that just doesn't make sense to me.

Anyway, I'll be quiet now. :)
