    Just an update here, we signed a lease this morning and we are no longer homeless, officially! We are still fundraising to cover moving costs and to replace the old appliances that are in the place now, they don't work, so if you can help out or just share my fundraiser with your family/friends offline that'd be awesome. I'm really grateful for everyone's support through this For now we're cleaning and painting and trying to make a home out of this diamond in the rough! Almost to the other side of this overhaul

    Nah. I'm a Davos fan books and show. I just like his character, his background, his actions, his beliefs. He's an all-round good guy without being a Mary Sue. Not to mention that GoT is so full of badasses and antiheroes that those have become saturated markets. I like Davos so much because he manages to be likable while moving away from those a bit. Honest, sensible, and good is a rare combination in this show. You'll have a hard time finding many others who have consistently been all three (maybe Sam). Reminds me of Ned if he'd been born as a commoner. He does the right thing no matter what, even if it means defying his beloved king or losing his own life, and he has a positive influence on literally everybody he interacts with. All the while, he's the one of the most loyal dudes in Westeros.

    I have already tried to turn balrog away from his heretical and wicked spelling ways. But alas it was to no avail. At least I managed to bring you redemption.

    Just finished The Wire. It was good but the fifth and last season felt rather anticlimactic. Overall I think the third and fourth seasons were the best.

    Eh, Dallas is weird. It certainly votes blue, but you get outside the city and into the suburbs and it's as read as it gets. Which most people consider the greater metroplex area still part of Dallas. I do agree, it's real snooty. Hell yeah! I nominate Endar. "An elf who cares, just not about you." This is perfect lol

    I think a lot of tumblr sjw types (but I repeat myself) see Nords as the usual white oppressor so their enemies must be all innocent as the driven snow, no pun intended. Nilfgaard can keep their prissy prancer!

    She's got three dragons and can walk through fire, lol I'm more cocky than she is and I don't have half of her biggest advantages. She came to conquer, not to cater to the North's ego. Not that I want them to give in, necessarily. If it were a perfect world, I'd have what Doc suggested and have a bunch of independent kingdoms and groups all over the place. But really she's no different than most conquerors would be. I think she's definitely arrogant, as many strong leaders are, but part of this is I think she sees it as a necessary evil to bring good to the land. Order. Of course that very well may be a bullshit excuse to just rule, but if she does wish to bring order under her rule when there's a woman in her way that doesn't want to give up the seat, she has to be ruthless. Of course were I her, I'd play nice with the North now and take their independence later, but that could easily backfire and ruin all my efforts in the end. Civil War once again.

    I know the feeling. My bosses there told me they liked how direct I was. Anytime someone tried rolling over me, I wouldn't let them, and word got to them about it because it was apparently rare for new temp hires. Which is why my boss defended me partially, he knew I simply was being honest rather than lying and being unsure if I could work something I'd never even touched. It's a vacuum, but a lot of these industrial machines around the plant don't work the way you'd expect. I just wanted someone to show me where the damn thing was and how to use it once, just in case. Never said I wouldn't or couldn't do it. Which is why I guess they didn't fire me outright. That and I worked a crazy amount of overtime. My first time being hired, I worked literally over a month, nearly forty days with only one day off, which was a day I had to call out for when I got sick. I thought I was actually physically sick, turns out I was just suffering from exhaustion and sleep deprivation. All of that flushed down the toilet because one dude didn't like that I didn't kiss his ass after slathering it in honey. I wasn't ghetto, I wasn't rude, just spoke with him man to man.

    So for the next few missions, i'll only do this for interesting shit, but since this was the first real op, I guess i'll provide a battleport. So are scouts reported alien abductions in Austrilia, and since it's a first world power (that provides alot of money to us) I sent the loser squad to deal with them. A small force of Sectoids, and Alien Drones. The mission went perfect, and after about six minutes of engagement, we won the fight without any real injuries (Doc didn't need to do any healing.) Took place mostly around a super market. LOL, surprisingly, Doctor ******* massacred the Aliens. Despite having below fifty hit chances, he got all of his shots, and each one was an instant kill. Scored four Sectoids, and a drone. I'm considering making him the officer of the group (Gave you a saw off shotgun as a reward too) Sneaked up behind this one, and riddled it with bullets while another soldier dueled a Sectoid on the roof top. Czar killed a score of them with his rocket launcher, when two we're trying to push against our backline He also got one who was trying to flank Doctor, saving him from grisly injuries. Centurion only got one kill, but he along with a sniper, managed to hold off their reinforcements from attacking our weak behind, when the Sectoids decided to counter attack, a vital deed in the battle All in all, an excellent first mission. What should I focus our research on? Killing the Aliens, or making sure our soldiers take less damage?

    I mean I still am not a huge fan, Jons still my main man, but know that I'm not just seething in anger afterwards. Ehh, she's not so bad. I would've executed Randal and sent Dickon back to Dragonstone in irons instead of burning both of them like a true Mad targaryen, but whatever.

    My man Jon puttin his fuckin foot down. "I don't need your permission, I am a King" **** yeah man. Edit: You know she was dripping to ground when he was petting Drogon. And she had some quiver down below when he said he was leaving without her giving some of that dragonass

    Oh, and primaries are party elections that take place before the national one. All the candidates from a party run against each other and the one who wins gets to run for that party in the actual election.

    What do you people think about doing a rerun of "who would you vote for president" poll but with our TES characters instead? You're not allowed to nominate your own characters and any nomination must be accompanied by a self aware slogan for the voting option.

    To me there just comes a point where you start to wonder why the hell the world hasn't ended yet, considering there seems to be a plot to make that happen every couple of years. It also kinda removes the stakes in a meta way, since the fans know that the world isn't really going to end because that would mean the end of TES. But if the threat could viably succeed without unmaking the world, then there is always that fear that they might just pull it off. Witcher's Blood and Wine DLC is a good example of this, where even if you beat the MQ, the villain can still achieve what they wanted without you losing.

    I don't think they'll say Stormcloaks won but I do think the Empires fate will make it easily implied or make the outcome irrelevant. Either Skyrim leaving the Empire, willingly or not, or the Empire simply collapsing.

    Lol even in the civil war quest. Stormcloaks- Prove your worth and kill an ice wraith like all true sons and daughters have in their coming of age in Skyrim. Imperials- I dunno, go kill an entire bandit fort or some shit and **** off, we're busy.

    Going back to a comment Balrog made what do you think about Titus Mede II? Despite what the Voice Actor claims (Which I do think holds some truth to it) I believe he was overall a huge coward, which no matter how many times I see into the lore I can't fathom how he agreed to the White Gold. Given the Imperials knew the Thalmor couldn't push against them and vice versa who convinced him otherwise, was his counsel comprised of sycophants?

    For most folks the biggest perks are the color change and the fancy tag, the VIP memberships are for set time period like $19.95 for 3mo and the color is royal blue. We also do a subscription where you can pledge to pay an amount every month automatically and your color/tags would be gold. In addition to colors you get unthrottled downloads, more galleries, more privileges like deleting posts/shouts etc.

    lol I called Saarthal Solstheim last night so I ain't judgin Anyway, you'll have to excuse me and my stupid jokes. Considering Czar said he's nothing like that, it's pretty clear dude is an Imperial fan and is just using one of the popular arguments against Nords.

    Personally I didn't back Stannis because he was strong or because he was a good guy (though I would argue that he was the former, at least). I backed him because he was the only king to actually give a damn about the freaking upcoming apocalypse. Also, his claim was the best and I believe that he genuinely would've done the best job in that role. He had to get his hands way dirtier than anyone else, and that makes him a pretty villainous character towards the end, but if he actually got on the throne, I think he'd be a great king. Hell, Mance Rayder despises kneelers and the very concept of hereditary rulers, and he believed that Stannis would be the best king in the last hundred years. He believed that even after Stannis kicked his ass north of the Wall and promised to brutally execute him. And lol, Davos believes the same after Stannis cut off the ends of his fingers. Dude has trouble gaining loyalty, but once he does, his followers are ride-or-die. Even Jon backed him and he took a vow specifically not to do that.

    I disagree on this only because High Rock probably has the highest percentage of mages per person and I think that would go a long way to combatting a dragon. Whereas the Redguards don't have hardly any mages, and the Nords don't have too many either. Of course the Bretons are probably the kingdom most susceptible to the military the Empire actually has and not this theoretical dragon but if it were the dragon I think they'd be better off than most.

    Actually I had a nightmare about tornadoes last night, and my cousin was a Bruxa. Shit you not lol, first dream I had in a while too. Yaaaay. And no she wasn't naked, lol, just invisible, and I guess I assumed "Bruxa!" In the dream.

    Good luck to you both. The Man always trying to beat you down! That reminds me of my sucky dining hall job in college. Early on I got on the boss' bad side because he expected me to drop what I was doing and help him with something- he didn't ask me to help him, mind you, just was pissed that I didn't read his mind. So I always got passed over for promotions to student manager. Whatever, in my senior year I went in to quit because I was writing a thesis and couldn't make the minimum hours. The same dick boss looked at my record and saw that I'd never been late once in three years, for breakfast shifts no less, and I never skipped and was rarely sick. He said "how have I never promoted you?" Feh. Story of my life, really.

    Turns out I'll have more free time after all for a little while anyway. The top dog manager at my building said he didn't want me back, so I gotta get either a new job or a new assignment elsewhere in the factory. Until then I'm out of a job. All because apparently I spoke to him too directly or something, I dunno.

    Authors who focus too much on world building tend to lose me, but also authors who don't bother to make the world coherent. That's how I felt about Harry Potter and the Hunger Games books, besides finding the author's writing style dull. The sad fact for a writer is that I think you have to spend a lot of time world building and then never expound on it to your readers, except subtly and in the background. It has to feel fully fleshed out, but you can't overtire your readers with detail. Writers who are enamored with their own cleverness want to make sure all their babies get on the page. And to me the real meat of the story is always the human element- the primal things that grab people because of their own experience. I can't really talk, because as much as I've thought about writing historical fantasy of my own, haven't managed it yet. As for war stories, I've forever had All Quiet on the Western Front on my reading list, but haven't managed it yet. Bah, so many books and so little attention span. This weekend I'm dealing with the cleanup from an epic battle with a very large mouse I was starting to think was Brown Jenkin because he evaded all my traps and poison. I'd spend more money, put more stuff out, then still hear him rattling around at night. BUT he got hoisted on his own petard when he **chewed through the rat poison box** to get at an opened package, and ate enough of it to kill a dog. Suddenly it's very quiet.

    Well, he was technically co-opted into the mythos by Lovecraft. Hastur was a name Robert Chambers liked from something Ambrose Bierce wrote, same with Carcosa. After Chambers wrote The King in Yellow, Lovecraft made some illusion to it in his own work. And then when they both died and the mythos evolved over time, they became one in the same. Which is ironic since Chambers apparently moved away from the type of writing in The King in Yellow, and Lovecraft thought Chambers had wasted his potential as a writer. And now their works inhabit the same mythos.

    I'm good, lol. And before y'all start judging, no I wasn't out here just taking pics of Lydia and Bodolf like a loser I was hunting. Need leather straps for all the iron daggers I'm spamming. And hunting on a horse with the convenient horses mod is quite fun, just tackle something and shoot an arrow up its ass while its ragdolling.
