Accents and a skin from my shop! The top three will be printed soon (first two have been submitted and the third is still waiting on preorders to come in)! The rest haven’t gotten enough interest yet to do a run, but hopefully that’ll change soon! All accents are 400g each and the skin is 800g!

current mood: vaguely upset and angry at everything. I think I’ll take a shower.

Some more color palettes! Heavens May Cease to Be, Daffodils, and Sun and Sea Poster.

I did another color palette thing! Fairy Pendant.

help I’m having bionicle feels

who else played with them as a kid I wanna reminisce with somebody

themagnificentmags, there’s a whole fandom right here on tumblr. It’s relatively small, but since BIONICLE’s return has been confirmed in september, it is starting to grow, and most of us, if not all of us, are super pumped about it! :D

Me too! I follow at least one skyrim confessions blog and they had to disallow civil war-faction bashing because it got too bad. At this point I’m just going to blame the internet.

I really love how Skyrim isn’t known for its grand overarching storyline anymore. It’s stealing people’s shoes and creating cabbage waterfalls and giants knocking people into the stratosphere.

Just a tip—if you go for destruction magic, get the impact perk ASAP. If you dual-cast any spell it’ll knock the enemy to the ground (even dragons!) and you can basically beat any enemy one-on-one if you have enough magicka. It’s great.

And oh man, that’s a great character bit! I didn’t really think of that conflict but dang, that would be an interesting conflict. Especially because she has Derkeethus right there to remind her of her physical affiliation!

what if you could marry alduin

That was about my play-style too. I got really lost trying to get to Ivarstead and ended up going all over the place instead. It took a long time for me to get going on the main quest and I haven’t actually finished the Stormcloak questline |D

It’s been a long time since I had coherent Mella thoughts but yeah! She goes through the stages of “oh, well you aren’t too bad for a human, lydia” and “the ‘master race’ hates my guts so I hate them back” and “it’s not really very productive to treat every human like dirt when you’re in cyrodiil/skyrim” and eventually ends up at “fuck everything about the altmer you humans are p cool”. Mostly she sides with the Stormcloaks because the Imperials are working with the Thalmor and that would get her dragged off in the middle of the night as likely as not. (Plus I had a stupid voice-crush on Ulfric so uh yeah)

The vampire angst is because I picked Volkihar in Dawnguard (because the super-vampire looks so cool) and soon realized that nope that was a bad choice… but I had to finish the quest line. I wanted to throw in some body horror and angst kind of came along for the ride? Tbh, that fic was a jumbled mess and it’s all I can do to pull a coherent Dragonborn out of it.

On the other hand, it has this gem of a line:

“Shhphpsshhh.” I try to shush him but I end up tripping over my own lips.

Do you have the expansion packs? I would recommend at least Hearthfire because it makes for great home base material, and the others are fun too.

Jeez. You have a game about A DRAGON-SOULED DRAGON SLAYER SLAYING DRAGONS and people manage to start flame wars about what the mere mortals are doing. Methinks that it should be mandated that any arguments in Skyrim fandom must be written in the style and format of Alduin is Real, and He Ent Akatosh.

At one point I had literally hundreds of salmon steak in my inventory. I was half tempted to unleash them all in Breezehome at once. But then I’d probably miss picking up a few dozen and we’d never get that fishy smell out of the walls.

Oh hell yeah. That’s definitely the kind of thing my dark elf would be into. Will do.

Ahhh I have great headcanon drama between them. Half the reason she married him was to be like “I MAY HAVE A DRAGON SOUL BUT I AM STILL ARGONIAN. SEE? MARRYING A MARSH BROTHER.” And now she’s just kind of “shit what if I am a dragon tho.” TBH half of my fic ideas are just Derkeethus being like “what the hell did I get myself into.”

Luckily by the time I decided “okay okay let’s go to Ivarstead” I’d figured out “wait, you’re not supposed to just jump up the sides of the mountains, there are actual paved roads with reliable signs for you to walk on,” so at least THAT wasn’t a problem, lol.

ngl I would marry Alduin so fast. And then have him sit at home with the housecarl tending the shop while I took over Skyrim. actually tho I’m actually hoping to maybe someday possibly make an Alduin follower; like, he’d only pop up after you finish the main plotline, and he’s stuck in a human form (as punishment or something idefk), and you don’t even get to choose him as a follower. He just starts stalking you the first time you pop up in Ivarstead and harasses you unless you use Dragonrend to scare him off. And he’d ultimately be a marriage option but only if you do some weird quest, otherwise if you attempt to propose he’d either laugh at you or punch you or something. … And he’d mainly be a marriage option so that the Blades can show up and try to kill him during the wedding.

I can now say that, as of today, I have started the Stormcloak plot. As in I killed the ice wraith and got a little notice that said “Failed: Join The Imperials.” And that’s about as far as I got, lol.

Voice crushes are totally legit. Make it IC. Ascribe it to Mella’s character. Say it’s because even when he’s speaking like a normal person she can hear the power of the Thu’um in his voice…… Half of writing is bullshitting up justifications for doing what you wanted to do anyway.

… That’d actualy be p interesting, though. A Dragonborn who joins the Stormcloaks primarily because “yyyeah I like listening to his voice.”

Ah, the evolution of a racist. How’s she feel about Beastfolk? There’s probably less of them around for her to interact with.

Anybody who chooses vampires for the body horror has chosen for all the right reasons. I don’t have any of the expansions yet; I wanna finish the main game before I start adopting babies and riding dragons.

(I’m so sorry I missed this reblog the first time around ;n;)

I had to look up that book, and it would make any flame war more tolerable. As for the salmon steak, can you imagine trying to get it all to stay on the table? And then the dragonborn glaring at it when they come back inside and the salmon is back all over the floor. “Bad physics. No biscuit.” and all that.

Ngl, I would love to read some internal species conflict fic. Not nearly enough fics focus on that, and it’s genuinely interesting. If you do end up posting anything you should link me to it c:

I headed off towards Ivarstead before the “wait, you’re not supposed to just jump up the sides of the mountains, there are actual paved roads with reliable signs for you to walk on,” realization kicked in. I actually climbed halfway up a waterfall before I had to turn back. Then I did that a few more times. It didn’t help that I didn’t really know how Clairvoyance worked either.

I… didn’t think of that opportunity. Honestly, I wish there was an option for you to betray Ulfric/Tullius and take over Skyrim for yourself, just for added megalomania. For the follower, maybe it’s Akatosh’s punishment for being a brat? Then the question is whether or not you let the Blades kill him during the wedding. Given that most players don’t really like the blades though…

I love how you can just wait to do any storyline-related thing. Nobody cares how long it takes you. We’re attacking Whiterun? Okay, but I need to hang out in Blackreach for a month. See ya soon.

If I ever (re-)write Mellafic I’m definitely going to add that in, it’s great! Depending on how I shake the timeline out (maybe she joins the Stormcloaks before realizing she’s Dragonborn?) that could even be an inexplicable voice crush. Muahaha.

As for beastfolk, she can be civil enough but she has a tough time keeping a faint sneer off her face. Hundred-year-old habits die hard, after all.

I really love writing body horror. It’s just so deliciously gross and fun to write haha. And there’s plenty of room within canon to run with! (Plus body horror goes hand in hand with h/c, which is also fun to write.)

help I’m having bionicle feels

who else played with them as a kid I wanna reminisce with somebody

Does anybody know to catch up on Korra? I actually want to watch it now but nickelodeon apparently only has the latest few episodes on their website. Is there somewhere else where I can archive binge?

[cut for length]

I’ve seen a lot of arguing over Stormcloaks and Imperials, actually! Mostly because I think people generally only play through one of the two questlines and they take the propaganda at face value? People also get really attached to whichever side they pick too, and then there’s the lack of tone over text that makes things sound more angry too.

Dang, I am envious of your spoiler-dodgery! I didn’t know much about Skyrim going in but I had a general idea of the main plotline. And ooh, that’s a cool backstory!

…My playstyle is basically the opposite of yours wow. I went full magic Altmer dual-casting firebolt all over the place and took down whatever dragons I saw. (We do agree on the Thalmor/Vigilants angle though.)

And ooh, what do you mean about a species identity crisis? The whole dragon soul thing? (How far are you in the various quests, anyway?)

My Dragonborn Melorie/Mella is like 60% self-insert and I actually wrote some fic for her but ehhhhh it wasn’t very good. Her family was driven out of the Summerset Isles by the Thalmor so she’s basically on the lam in Skyrim when she trips over the whole dovahkiin thing. She’s basically a huge magic nerd and also still pretty Altmer-typical racist. I think I also tossed some vampire angst in there? (I did an art of her too.)

Huh. Wow. I’m kind of baffled that people can avoid hearing the other side’s propaganda in Skyrim. Maybe I’ve been able to get a more balanced view because my lizard went “I’m from Black Marsh fuck you guys” instead of joining a side at the start?? She’s slowly deciding to join the Stormcloaks, but that’s 30% “if ONE of these sides doesn’t win the Thalmor are just gonna keep this war going forever and that’s bad for everyone Black Marsh so I’d better help one of them win,” 30% “screw the Thalmor and everyone allied with them and that includes the empire,” and 40% “there are Argonians in Windhelm but not in Solitude.”

I don’t know how I managed it. Somehow I knew that if you toss a dozen cabbages in the woods and come back like two weeks later they’ll still be there, but I didn’t know you have a dragon soul. Sheer luck, I suppose.

Ah, that’s what my next playthrough’s gonna be more like, methinks. I’ve made up a Dunmer girl who’s throwing fireballs at everything in sight before she even makes it out of Helgen, and I’m gonna be her when I get tired of being Brackish-Delta for a while.

Yeah, the whole dragon soul thing. I headcanon that she just kinda lies awake staring at the ceiling trying to figure out if she’s a dragon with an Argonian body, or an Argonian with a dragon soul. She gets distressed over fighting dragons and will occasionally get in fights with her husband Derkeethus about it and she’ll go “But I don’t want to hurt my people!!” and he’ll go “I’M your people!” and she’ll just be like “…… right, I knew that.”

I’ve spent most of my time running around Skyrim doing random quests because the moment someone said “you’re dragonborn you should go visit the Graybeards” she went “HNOPE NOPE NOPE MY SOUL IS ARGONIAN I REFUSE TO BE A DRAGON GOODBYE” and ran off to be in denial. So I’ve put a ton of time into the game and only JUST NOW am up to the point where I’m supposed to talk the Jarl of Whiterun into letting me kennel a dragon in his backyard. … At which point she went “Alduin’s in Skyrim Valhalla, we’ve got some time to kill, let’s run around the country and do more random quests.” She’s juuuust about to head from Winterhold down to Windhelm to go “okay okay I’m joining you guys hail Ulfric,” before continuing south then swinging west then FINALLY going to Whiterun.

If lollygagging were actually a crime, I would have the highest bounty in Skyrim.

Ooh, a racist Altmer type siding with the Stormcloaks (if I can judge by the art)? She disdains the lesser races less than she hates the Thalmor, I take it? Where does the vampire angst fit in? (The one time Brackish-Delta started to turn she went “ha ha screw this” and immediately swigged a Cure Disease.)

themagnificentmags answered your question:So this is what I’ve been doing lately.

I dabbled in the skyrim fandom a while ago but I’d love to talk headcanons! :o

talking headcanons yes good I love talking headcanons

How do Skyrim people start headcanon conversations? Because my brain says the obvious answer should be “ask them about their Dragonborn” but IDK if that’s right. Is that a good starting point.

That’s probably a good starting point. Stormcloaks or Imperials would just start an argument, and the lore is just so huge otherwise. You wanna talk about your Dragonborn?

Does the fandom actually argue about Stormcloaks and Imperials? Because I thought the point of the game was that every single argument anybody gives for OR against either side will be directly contradicted by somebody somewhere else, that everyone is a dick, that the world is made of shades of gray, and that choice is inherently meaningless thus the only logical decision is to bow down to our rightful overlord and destroyer Alduin the Magnificent.

… Okay maybe not that last bit.

BUT SURE! My Dragonborn is an Argonian chick named Brackish-Delta. I managed to dodge spoilers so well that almost three years after the game’s release I went into it not even knowing about “Dragonborns” at all, and so a couple hours into playing the game I got to hop around like “OH SHIT I GOT A DRAGON SOUL, AND I EVEN PICKED THE RACE THAT LOOKS LIKE A DRAGON.” She was sent to Skyrim because the Hist went “We didn’t give her her soul and we honestly don’t have a frigging clue where it came from, go ask the Nords or something IDK,” her combat it mainly stealth-based and she doesn’t know jack about magic, she never attacks dragons unless they attack her first and she leaves flowers in their bones, she attacks Thalmor on sight and avoids the hell out of Vigilants of Stendarr, and she’s currently undergoing a species identity crisis.

IDK what’s too much or too little to share about one’s Dragonborn on a first meeting so thERE YOU HAVE IT?? Your turn?

Hello friends! Another new computer problem is this. When I try to open the coli up, it fails to load at all and eventually throws up that error message. I’m running Chrome on windows 8.1, and the websockets thing in the “Faire/Coliseum not loading” thread said websockets are working fine. Anybody have any possible solutions?

So my new computer has a few problems. One of them is that whenever a video (not vine) comes up on my dash it gets turned into this (with a grey box instead of the video player), the dash won’t load further, and likes stop working. I’m using Chrome on windows 8.1, and I have xkit installed. Does anybody know how to fix this?
