People who don’t think Sheog could majorly fuck shit up
"he only makes people crazy that’s not scary"
fucker could make the entirety of Wayrest paranoid enough to murder their neighboring kingdoms out of fear
see the thing about Sheog is that in place of a mor(t)al compass, he acts on literary merit. look at the way authors painstakingly create OCs just to ruin their lives. that is how the madgod do.
also if you refer to the mentally ill as “broken” or “stupid” I will fucking drive to your house and hide radios playing the most obnoxious droning song possible with each one set to be a few milliseconds off from the rest. good luck getting the one in your chimney
i wouldnt be as mad about the faolchu thing as i am if it actually added something.
because like, it does not add anything. at no point in both faolchu fights does fire play a part. you literally just hit him until he dies. there is no fire. there is just a lot of whining from faolchu and him going “FUCK THE DIRENNI. FUCK ELVES.”
When I fought him, you had to wait for him to light himself on fire before you could hurt him (he didn’t take damage otherwise). Of course, this entailed him screaming NO FIRE IS MY WEAKNESS before charging straight through a burning pile of wreckage.
Emeric and Jorunn have like no downsides and no negatives, and then there's Ayrenn with like 25 things that make her a bad person.
i wouldnt say that they have no downsides or negatives
emeric has negatives that i know of. which is to say, his treatment of orcs. or well, what he allows to happen to orcs.
jorunn i dont know about because jorunn just. doesnt have as much info as ayrenn or emeric, he comes in a lot later after all.
you have to remember though, ive played through auridon 7 times already, and grahtwood 3 times. the whole storyline once, and ive read pretty much every single text about ayrenn, and have screencapped all of her dialogue that ive read through TOO MANY TIMES TO COUNT, as well as all dialogue that ive seen mention her.
im really, really crazy about ayrenn. not so crazy about emeric and jorunn.
can we not try to destigmatize depression/anxiety/OCD by throwing everyone else under the bus tho because I do occasionally see people reblogging rhetoric comes off across as “yeah i sure do got a mental disorder but it’s not like I’m one of those DANGEROUS CRAZY PEOPLE or anything.” can we also not act like that just because you have one of the above, you are the expert on EVERY mental disorder and no one can criticize what you say because that’s also pretty tiresome. can we also also stop infantilizing people with mental illnesses and treating people like they’re just poor lil babies that need to be taken care of because they just can’t do anything themselves because oh boy that is not condescending at all. don’t enable shitty behavior also, especially under the guise of “helping”.
i used to write a lot i like writing. a ton actually.
but if there’s one thing i have never been able to stand, it’s the psuedointellectual wannabe writer culture that suffuses the internet
case in point, the single most intolerable group of people at my colleges were… writing majors!
it’s disheartening because it’s just… yeah. idk. late night thoughts.
A lot of the writing communities I tried to join when I wrote more were just really awful.
There was a lot of this strange sense of superiority that insisted being a writer made you a better person. Not in the “One thing that makes being a (insert type of artist here) great is it opens your eyes to beauty a lot of people don’t see” sort of way that you tend to see in discussions about music, the visual arts, or whatever else. It’s this suffocating mentality that being a writer somehow makes you a superior person on a moral, emotional, and intellectual level.
Which is just very wrong.
You do occasionally find that mentality in other artistic communities but I’ve never seen it so concentrated as I have in writing communities.
