Vampires who look and dress like fourteen-year-old budding goth kids because no one will ever believe that they’re actually vampires, no matter what they might see or hear.
Vampires wearing bad plastic fangs and tacky red contacts everywhere they go and telling people to call them things like “Lord Bloodfang McDarkness the Third” and “Salacia, Mistress of the Night”.
every time i read “straight people” i automatically picture the pixies from fairly odd parents
These kind of posts make me think bad of gay people. If you want to talk about how straight people are “closed-minded” then just look at this post. How do they expect to ever be respected if they constantly talk about straight people in this way. It really irritates me when I see posts like these.
I got tagged by Chinburd yesterday to do a bunch of questions. Before I put it off even longer than I already have here are the questions and answers:
1. Who was your first character? Aaren, a human supremacist who wanted to suck the vitality out of elves because screw their extra special magic and longevity. I never got to create my army of undying elf husks, which made me sad.
2. Favorite NPC to play? Mindless thug #47.
3. Current characters most prized possession? Biggest sword. Tarwin in spite of being a scary vampire is actually pretty impoverished. They have only their armor and sword, and a handful of random knick knacks that I’ve gathered.
4. How many shoes have you ruined since you started larping? I wear winter boots that have leather and rubber. They aren’t super pretty, but they are durable, and keep my feet dry. So zero.
5. How long have you been larping? 3ish years.
6. First game experience? I played a NERO off shoot called Raven. It was designed for new LARPers a lot more heavily than I think it should have been, and it nerfed melee combat even more than most LARPs do, which was frustrating. Magic was the best, and elves were the best at magic. No I wasn’t a bitter human warrior, what are you talking about?
7. What Disney character is your larp character most like?Tarwin is currently an evil Vampire bent on world domination, who gets away with a lot by being affable. I’m aiming for a cross between The Emperor and Han Solo (Disney owns Star Wars now, it counts).
8. If you could play anything, even outside of your genre, what would it be? Angel. Badass with wings and a big sword and light and or fire powers? Yes please.
9. What fictional world would you like to larp and why? I’m a fan of the Magic the Gathering Universe, but I think that it would be very difficult to make work.
10. Weapon of choice? Two Handed Sword. I’ve been using them since I was a kid fighting with my brother using swords made out of wooden trim. The reach is nice, the damage is good, and I’m used to it. I am looking forward to trying out a spear though…
All of the people that I would be tagging have already been tagged. This thread ends with me I’m afraid.
if you don’t think history is a truly inspiring subject you’re wrong (via fashiondisastercecil)
I have to add, this wasn’t just a case of a pretty woman got advanced on by a man she didn’t want. He wasn’t just an admirer. He was her student. She was a master at mathematics, astronomy, and philosophy. She had popular public lectures.
And she wasn’t just said to throw her menstrual rags at him. The story I read was that he admitted his admiration in the middle of one of her teachings, and she grabbed her menstrual rags right out from in between her legs, hurled it at him, and told him “This is what you really love, my young man, but you do not love beauty for its own sake.”
It wasn’t just an attempt to discourage him. It was teaching him a lesson, even when he was interrupting hers.
Basically, Hypatia was amazing.
I hadn’t realised that that bit from Agora was based on a real life thing… okay, so if you want to see this, watch Agora. And then turn it off after the big fight, ‘cos it gets real rapey real fast.(via lil-miss-choc)
"Depression is such a cruel punishment. There are no fevers, no rashes, no blood tests to send people scurrying in concern. Just the slow erosion of the self, as insidious as any cancer. And, like cancer, it is essentially a solitary experience. A room in hell with only your name on the door."
